Blog Sale Updated

I’ve been going through my makeup drawers and found some stuff to add to my blog sale that either didn’t work out for me or I just never reach for. All items are new or gently used. Check out the updated sale HERE! I will be adding a few handbags within the next week, but I will be sure to let you know when I do.

Happy Shopping!

Lancome recently released a foundation in a unique type of packaging. The new Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation is a liquid foundation that comes in a compact. There is a sponge like material (or cushion) that is basically holding the liquid in place. This foundation is supposed to be lightweight, hydrating, and brightening. It also has the benefit of being very portable due to it being in a compact. I decided to give this product a try in the shade 450 Suede N. Check out the video below to see how it fared!

Is the Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation something you would be interested in trying?

MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation First Impressions

I love trying new foundations and letting you all know about them! Today, the foundation that I reviewed is the new MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in the shade NC45. I really wanted to try this one out because it claimed to be lightweight, long wearing, and waterproof. If you would like to see how it lived up to those claims, check out the video below!

Would you like me to do some sort of foundation round-up where I talk about my foundation collection? If so, leave me a comment as to how you would like to see that done!

So far 2015 has been the year of the brow and the year of the liquid lipstick. It seems that every makeup brand has been coming out or improving upon these products in their line. NYX is no exception, they recently released quite a few brow products. I was interested in trying their brow pencil and brow pomade. Keep reading to find out if these products were a hit or miss!

Hit or Miss Monday: Covergirl The Super Sizer Mascara

Remember my “Weekly Hit or Miss” posts? It was one of my favorite types of posts so I’m disappointed that I didn’t keep up with it. Now, I will try to do them on Mondays because that seems to be a better time for me to make sure I get it done. It’s not that I’m not trying products, but I just never seem to get pictures and posts done by Friday. Hopefully I can better keep up with it this time!

This past week I have been trying out a new mascara that Covergirl sent to me to try (see full disclosure HERE), the Super Sizer Mascara. I’m not usually a fan of Covergirl mascaras, not because they are bad, I just am never attracted to them. Keep reading to find out if the Super Sizer Mascara was a hit or miss for me!

April 2015 Favorites

It’s time for my monthly favorite beauty products! Last year I was giving you a little blurb about each product mentioned in the video here on the blog so that you don’t have to watch the video if you don’t want, but lately I had gotten away from that. This month, I’ll try doing it that way again. As always, if you want more information or want to see swatches, make sure you watch the video. Let me know which way you prefer!

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette

One of the items that I was most excited about picking up during the most recent Sephora VIB Sale (click here to see that haul) was the new Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette. Swatches for this palette are starting to pop up online, but I haven’t seen many on my skin tone yet, so I wanted to share those with you. I can’t give a review on these yet since I haven’t used them, but the swatches seem pretty promising. By the way, if you’re wondering why I haven’t used this palette yet it is because I recently gave birth to my first child! Since then, I haven’t really worn any makeup, but I swatched this prior to giving birth so I didn’t want the swatches to be in vain.

Huge Beauty Haul!

Right now, Sephora has their Spring Sale going on so I figured that this would be a great time to share some items that I’ve recently picked up with you all. There are a few things from the Sephora sale, but also some stuff that I have had for awhile! This is a really long one, but if you have time, check out the beauty products that I picked up!

Have you gotten anything during the Sephora Sale?
