Urban Decay Vice Special Effects Long-Lasting Water- Resistant Lip Topcoat “White Lie” Review

Screen Shot 2017-06-09 at 8.29.20 PM.png

Hello lovies! Happy Saturday, I have been wanting to switch up my posting days, since I don’t really have a strict schedule, I would love to know your thoughts on this, and what you think, I won’t be changing the time that I post them, because I feel like 8 AM PST is a good time for everyone, but who knows, please let me know what you all think, I would appreciate some constructive feedback. Thank you! Okay, let’s get right to the blog post today. As you can already guess, this has been sitting on my “to do” list for a while now. I actually bought it right when it launched. I was super excited about it, because as a lot of you know, I am seriously obsessed with anything translucent, iridescent, shiny, opal like, oh you know, all the pretty things, lol! I thought this was such a cool product, new, innovative, and I had to have it! I at least had to have 1 of the 12 shades, and this shade was the only one that I wanted, funny, I would like a few more, but I knew this one was for me. It is absolutely beautiful!! I mean, just for the glitter alone, the colors, and the effect that it provides is so worth it! The lip topcoats retail for $18, and are available where Urban Decay is sold. I purchased mine at Macy’s! I think the retail price is pretty reasonable for the amount of product you get. I feel like because this is a top coat, that it will last for a long time, because with this product, you don’t need much, and a little goes a long way! By applying this top coat, it completely transforms any lip color, or lipstick, and makes it look totally different, I really think it’s such a fun, and innovative new product! I have seen topcoats before, but this is definitely more glittery, and really changes the look! This is perfect for a night out, from going from a day to night look, and just so fun! IT is shade shifting, and gives a duo chrome effect on the lips, without being over drying, it dries down, and melts perfectly into the lip color that it coats. I do have a complaint though, I don’t like the applicator brush, it makes the product clump together, and get chunky, which does goes away once it is applied to the lips, but it could’ve been more thought out, and designed better, I do however love the packaging, and the product is great, I know other’s haven’t enjoyed it, but I do like it, and think it does exactly what it was intended to do, which is transform your lips, and give a completely different look to them, while maintaining moisture, and smoothness. I think you should give it a try, I think you will love it as much as I do! I always love Urban Decay products, and some of them are my absolute favorite!! Thank you for reading! 

What it is:
A top coat that transforms any lip color for a completely customized look.

What it does:
Go from all-business to a party look in one swipe with Urban Decay’s Vice Special Effects Long-Lasting Water-Resistant Lip Topcoat. It transforms any lip color from beautiful to beyond. Apply this shade-shifting topcoat over cream, metallized and matte shades of UD’s Vice Lipstick or any Vice Liquid Lipstick to create a completely customized look.

Instantly morph your favorite colors and make it look like you spent hours crafting an Instagram-worthy lip look—or wear these shades alone. Available in shimmer, glitter, and metallic finishes, Urban Decay’s innovative, comfortable, gel-cream formula dries down quickly for long-lasting wear that never feels sticky. Vice Special Effects not only lasts, but also creates a water-resistant barrier that seals in the color underneath and prevents it from moving around on your lips.

Vice Special Effects comes in a clear tube (so you can see the shade inside) with gold accents. To set it apart from Vice Liquid Lipstick, Urban Decay gave it an iridescent white cap. The flexible brush applicator helps the formula glide on smoothly, without messing up any lipstick underneath. Marine Filling Spheres™, rich in marine collagen, deliver moisturizing and skin-smoothing properties.

HIGH end beauty Las Vegas outlet shopping haul *Tom Ford, NARS, Burberry, Estee Edit*

IMG_9916IMG_9915

Hello, hello lovies. Good day to all of you, okay, it’s night time when I am writing this post, but yes, it will be morning when this is posted 🙂 I hope your day is going wonderful so far, hopefully my day will be awesome as well. I mentioned in my last post yesterday that I just got back from a trip to Las Vegas, and had a great time, sunshine, pooltime, great food, and amazing shopping deals, are always so fun, right? My gosh, this was a great time this time, I really needed some sunshine, and pooltime to relax, but I got so damn sunburnt that I had to take a little break from the pools, and go shopping, my second favorite thing to do in Las Vegas besides the pool! Shopping is always so different in Las Vegas, because you just never know! I decided to try the North (in downtown Las Vegas) outlet mall this time, next time when I go in June, I want to go again to the North, but also want to see what is at the South, I also didn’t have time to do any other shopping this time, so gotta make more time for that next time as well! I am all about finding good deals!! I found some amazing deals on makeup this time, yeah!!! I couldn’t believe it, I was literally SO freaking excited when I saw there was a bare minerals store in the outlet, and a cosmetics company store as well, yeah!! I walked in to both of these stores, and almost cried lol, oh joys of a makeup lover lol! So anyways check out everything I got!! I will post the prices I paid as well just so you all know, what kind of amazing shopping deals you can get at these types of outlet stores in Las Vegas, so totally worth the trip, p.s. I took the bus from Bellagio, where I stayed to get there, it was definitely the way to save money, and travel while in Las Vegas, highly recommend it! Please let me know your favorite thing from my haul, I am curious to know, my favorite thing was both of the Tom Ford items, that bronzer/highlighter duo is LIFE, I saw it, and freaked out, so so beautiful my gosh yes!! These are my first 2 Tom Ford items in my collection, fyi, they are full of luxury, and elegance that’s for sure, simply stunning, and so is the price tag, lol, even at outlet prices!! I splurged, it’s always good to treat yourself every once in a while, why is makeup so beautiful, and pretty? LOL! Enjoy my haul! You can live through me, and my bad shopping habits! 🙂 Oh, and I do want to mention that Bare Minerals offers a free birthday gift (the full size eyeshadow) for your birthday, mine was April 14th, and I am a member because I am a Bare Minerals junkie, lol, so I got that for free! Also, the store was having an additional percent off because it was the weekend, so I really got great deals, I don’t know if they do this on non weekend’s though, so you may just get lucky like I did! The cosmetics company store was doing an additional 1/2 off everything in the store except Tom Ford, but that’s okay, they were still great prices! 

Tom Ford Bronzer/Highlighter Duo: $54

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Duo: $42

Burberry Eyeshadow: $16.24

Burberry Lipstick: $18.48

Burberry Lip Gloss: $15.97

Screen Shot 2017-04-09 at 11.12.49 PM.png

Hello, hello my beautiful lovies!! I hope you are all having a great Monday, and an amazing start to your day!! Today’s blog is a pretty one, thank you for joining me, and checking out my review. I am reviewing this Pixi by Petra, we are just going to refer to it as Pixi from now on in the blog just to make it easier on myself, lol. I was excited that I received this as PR from Pixi, they are the best, and I love all of their amazing products!! I really love getting packages from them, and feel very lucky! They sent me this beautifully cute 3 piece beauty kit, it is available at Target, and online at Pixi by Petra. This kit retails for $22.00, this kit is available in 2 different options, and collections, today I am reviewing the hello! Rose beauty kit, and it is part of their new collection, which is perfect for Spring! The kit was sent with real mini rose petals, their PR packages are the best, they really make an effort for packaging, and presentation! Opening the packaging it smelt like roses, such a bonus! This kit is perfect for any rose lover, the colors in the kit are so pretty, and pink, yet delicate, and will suite many skin tones, because of the light colors. I literally haven’t found a product that I don’t love from Pixi, they are hands down my favorite drugstore (high end drugstore) brand, I have been using, and loving their products for years!! This little kit is perfect for someone who wants to try out their products, without spending to much, etc. My favorite thing in this kit is the lip gloss, it’s the most beautiful shade of pink, it’s not to bright, or overpowering, it’s the perfect nude mauve, not sticky on the lips, and has a good wear time, and smells sweet, and glides on the lips effortlessly. I love this lip gloss, I will be getting it in the full size! I also really love the blush duo, the pink is subtle, and easily blendable into the skin, the highlight side of the duo is the same, and perfect for highlighting under the brow bone, or the cheeks, I used it for both, and love the color, and touch of bling it provides! This 3 piece beauty kit is defintely worth a try, as I am sure you will find a favorite, and fall in love with Pixi by Petra!

Mac Cosmetics “Work It Out” Collection Prep & Prime Setting Spray Fix + Rose & Lavender Review

Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 5.17.32 PMScreen Shot 2017-04-05 at 5.34.21 PM

Hello there all my lovies!! Thank you for joining me today on the blog! This week has been busy as usual, and am playing a little bit of catch up, but hey, what else is new! I hope you are all having a great day!! Sorry this post is posting late, as I usually post in the morning at 8AM, but just didn’t have time to get the post up early, and I figured better late then never! So on the blog today, I have had these for about a month now unfortunately, and had the post on my “to do” list, and am just now finally getting around to it, I’m sorry, I missed the ball on this one, and they are all sold out now at stores online, and on Mac Cosmetics online. I knew these would be popular, and sell out fast, I am really glad that I snagged 2 when they came out! These are from Mac Cosmetics, one of my absolute favorite makeup up brands, and products, these were part of the work it out collection, and were special edition. Most of the collection is still available online though, just all 3 of these special edition fix+ collection are sold out. I did purchase mine at Nordstrom, so I got lucky before they sold out. When these were released in the full size, they were very popular, and sold out very quick, I actually didn’t purchase them, in hopes that mini’s would come out, okay, let’s be real, it takes me FOREVER to go through a full size of anything especially fix+ since I don’t use it every day, and only use it on special occasions on my brush to make pigment brighter, and as a setting spray when I really want my makeup to stay put, definitely not something I use daily, or even weekly for that matter, so I knew I really just wanted a mini, or 2, and I wanted all 3 scents originally, but settled with just the 2, since I didn’t really like the scent of the coconut scented one. I have been using these two, the rose, and the lavender, and they last forever, so I am glad I got the minis! The spray on these are amazing, I think I am going to save the bottles, and refill them with maybe a toner for my skincare, because the way these spray are absolute perfection, it dispenses the perfect amount needed, I really enjoy them a lot! These both smell amazing, without being over powering, the lavender is my favorite of the two! Fix+ makes any eyeshadow brighter, making any type of pigmented product wet, makes them more intense, and stand out more, I have been using this product, (the regular fix+) for years, it really does make a difference when you are going for more bold eye looks. This product has many uses though, so the uses are endless, and very versatile. 

IMG_9191IMG_9192FullSizeRenderIMG_9193IMG_9195

Let’s get physical! Stimulate your senses with a collection where high-performance colour meets the art of fitness. Pump up your look by sweeping on one of 16 bold-as-you-dare shades of In Extreme Dimension Lash. Warm up or cool down your look with super-charged Lipstick hues and six new shades of Crystal Glaze Gloss. Spritz to finish with a mist of Prep + Prime Fix+ in three scents. Now work it!

An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calming blend of green tea, chamomile and cucumber, topped with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of sugi. Adds radiance and finishes makeup.

Thank you so much for reading, and again I apologize that I didn’t get this review post up earlier, that’s what I get for waiting to long, but I am glad that I got it done, and could share my thoughts, and opinions on this amazing product from Mac Cosmetics with all of you, because you can always get the regular one, or the mini, it just doesn’t have a fancy scent, but works the exact same, let me know if you have any other uses for this in the comments, I would love to know more ways to use it! Thanks! 🙂

Unicorn Lashes Ultimate Unicorn Kit Brush Set Review

Screen Shot 2017-03-29 at 7.41.52 PM.png

Hi there lovies!! Happy Thursday to all of you! I hope your all having a wonderful week, and Spring is joining you as well, it is a bit here, and I am loving the breaks in the rain for a little sunshine!! I am here to bring you a really fun blog post today! I am also announcing the SOLD OUT release from Unicorn Lashes pre order, you can sign up on their website to pre order the unicorn brush set, they will not ship out until March 31st though, which is only a few days from now, so if you are really wanting this beautiful brush set, make sure you pre order so that you can get them before they sell out yet again. If you haven’t seen, or heard about these unicorn brushes from unicorn lashes, where have you been? LOL, just kidding, but really they have been ALL over Instagram, and the internet have been buzzing about these for the past year, because they are absolutely STUNNING!! This set only is sold as a set, they do not sell the brushes individually, it is a set of 11 brushes for face, and eyes for makeup application, everything you will need all in a beautiful holographic zip storage case. These are sold in the UK so the price for these are $45 UK, and depending on US conversions on the day that you make your purchase the US dollar price currently when I am posting this is $56, this does not include shipping, and could change depending on price conversions as I mentioned! These are also VERY popular, and continue to restock, and sell out, so you have to be fast if you want them! I saw these, and at first didn’t want to fall into the hype, but after a few month’s of seeing them constantly, I knew I had to have them! I am a member to a bunch of different makeup groups on Facebook, and someone posted these for sale/swap, and I KNEW they had to be mine!! They were sold out at the time, and going for around $100-$150 on eBay for the set, so I was able to swap/purchase these from a seller, I got very lucky, because they were untouched still in their packages, so so lucky!! I jumped on them hotter then a hot tamale, lol, no joke! Okay, let me admit something here first, I did purchase these off of amazon, NO not these from unicorn lashes, the very cheap, generic version, I bought the entire set for $18, I received them in the mail, and immediately knew I would be sending them back, they smelt horrible, like paint, glue, and were nothing like the real, authentic brushes from unicorn lashes, not even close!!!! So back they went, and the next day I was lucky enough to swap/ purchase these, so I was super excited, and happy! I am, and was since I was a kid obsessed with anything unicorns, lately as an adult, not as much except for the last year, I am in love with anything translucent, unicorns, etc. and fell in love with these brushes the moment I saw them, so felt okay with spending the money, and getting them for myself because I knew I would love, and cherish them, and let me tell you, I am so happy with my swap/ purchase, I am literally in love with these brushes!! They are such high quality (like my MAC brushes) they are amazing, and finely made, the “horns” handles of the brushes are beautiful, it’s like your looking at an opal when you look at them, and the brush bristles, OMG can we take a moment? They are pure heaven, so rainbow, I don’t know how they did it, but they did, and I am SO glad I was able to get them!! The case that these come in just may be my favorite as well, not only is it beautiful, and so pretty, but very functional, because it stores each individual brush perfectly, so they are evenly spaced, and separated. Please check out the unicorn lashes website for pre ordering details, and check the conversion chart if you are in the US, because the conversions are constantly changing. Enjoy the pretty pictures, these brushes are a dream come true, I highly recommend them!! Let me know in the comments if you are considering them! They come beautifully packaged as well, there was such attention to detail in these brushes! P.S. Please only purchase authentic brushes, the fake ones sold on amazon, and eBay, the quality doesn’t even come close to these, I promise! 🙂

Milani “Keep It Sweet” Sugar Lip Scrub & “Keep It Sweet” Sugar Lip Treatment Review

IMG_9008IMG_9007

Hello lovies, welcome to the blog today, I hope you are all doing well, and happy Friday, yeah it’s Friday already, I really can’t believe it, this week sure has flown by! I wanted to at least get 2 blog posts up this week, to keep up with goals, because last week was a bust, to busy I tell ya! I hope you are all looking forward to a relaxing, and enjoyable weekend! I also hope the weather is nice, and warm, and sunny for you, I sure hope it is for me that’s for sure, please sun, please come visit me, lol!! 

I have a fun post for you today, I was able to purchase this set from a private seller in a makeup group, because none of my local drugstores carry them, I knew they were releasing, and really wanted to give them a try, because I don’t own anything from Milani, and I am obsessed with lip scrubs, and treatments, so these were a must have, must try for me. I was so lucky to find them for sale, and she shipped them to me. I got them a while ago, and am just now getting around to trying them, and OMG I am in love, I will definitely be purchasing these again when they run out. These retails for $10 each, and are available at drugstores, although Milani does go on sale from time to time, so they do go on sale. These are both hard to find as I know, and when they are restocked, they do sell out quickly, because they are quite popular, and everyone loves them, and I can see why! I love both of them. They smell so sweet like vanilla cupcakes, no joke, or like frosting, the scent is amazing, and isn’t over powering, or to strong. My lips in the winter get very dry, and cracked, and I am always looking for a good lip scrub, and treatment, I use both of these products now 2-3 times a week, and it is really helping to not only exfoliate my lips, but truly moisturize them as well. I think purchasing both was the smartest idea, because using the combination really seems to work the best, although I do use just the lip treatment on it’s own throughout the day as well, and enjoy it on it’s own, it keeps my lips supple, and juicy feeling, much lip a balm, but a thick balm, so it’s really a treatment. This especially works well overnight, it’s my favorite, and lives on my nightstand! It’s a must have in my opinion, and definitely recommend it! Milani is a great brand, and has a lot of great products, I would love to try more now! Let me know if you have tried either of these, and how you like them! Thanks for reading, and your support as always! 🙂
