So I know I have been MIA for a little bit , I feel like everyone is sick right now! Anyways I was cleaning and thought hey “Its time to take out the trash!” I have empties to show you… If you don’t know what that is, I basically save up beauty product containers that I have used up and I do one big review in an empties video.

I really liked this months IPSY if you haven’t subscribed you can still get on that! So far from what I have tried I really like all these products!
Last month Ipsy I was a little disappointed here are the products I got and What I think about them…
Starlooks Lip Pencil: Tipsy Honestly Its more of a spring type of color, I liked the pencil it was soft and matte but I Would have liked a more fall color..
Zoya Nailpolish:Giovanna I like this polish its a pretty color and the formula is great definitely like Zoya…
Costal scents eyeshadow brush BR-c-NO2 My favorite brush that I own now! seriously a great brush I use everyday and I really want to look into more of there brushes
Style Sexy Hair Spray clay: I love this it smells great, It texturizes adds volume and sets my hair all in one! In lOve.
Bella terra mineral cosmetics Mineral shimmer : Navy I really like this shadow it actually had no fall and i didn’t even use a wet brush, it was very pigmented and was almost creamy and rich on my lids I was very impressed!
So Now its time to show you my makeup look & Outfit I did try to use the products from last months Ipsy in my look today…I decided to do more of a punk outfit so I had to do a dark navy smokey eye as well!…
For the eyes I used The Bella terra pigment in Navy all over my lids.. I also used these two grayish blues in the crease to blend out the blue (I got this palette at the Dollar tree Sorry I don’t know what brand it is…)
on my lips I used the Starlooks pencil in Tipsy then I applied Wet N wild lipstick in the color 547B to tone down how bright this lipstick is then I topped it off with my current favorite gloss Sinful colors: Goddess
On My cheeks I used Elf Studio Blush: Berry Merry For the Nails I am wearing Avon Nailpolish & Revlon Facets of Fusia on my thumb, ring finger & Middle finger… For My eyeliner I smoked out Jordana 12 r eyeshadow pencil: Stay on black..
For my outfit…
black leggings: Walmart
Shirt (from our bond reunion)
Leg Warmers : Forever 21
Bow ( I made check out my DIY Bow clip)

Last I got A coastal Scents Eyeshadow brush… (which I used already & Love)
So now that you saw what I got this month.. What did you get?
Ipsy is a monthly subscription service that only cost $10 You get 5 Products to try most the time they are full size! Its really a deal… Want to join?
So Last Month I Got Some good stuff too… I decided why not review them for you!
First I got the NYX Fantasy Eye shadow which is Deep Brown with Gold Sparkles in it ! I think this is a great fantastic eyeshadow… It is a little dry though for some reason this one is not as rich and pigmented like the normal NYX eyeshadows are but the color is beautiful and it wears beautiful as well.
Then I got a starlooks Kohl Pencil : Obsedien Which is a black eye liner pencil. I think its a tiny bit dry but it works well, I Dont feel like I have to press hard to get it to look super black, It doesnt hurt when I put it in my waterline and It lasts a good amount of time! I also like that it is easy to smudge as well!
Its So BIG mascara: THis is one of my favorites I love the Length this gives my lashes, I dont find that it clumps at all & The brush is thin enough to use on the lower lashes! It doesn’t give me volume which is totally fine with me because it works well when combined with other mascaras.
Popsugar Pouty Crayon: Rose Romance Which is a beautiful pink nude shade, I felt it was creamy and mostly matte with a bit of a shine.. The only thing is it wears kind of like a lipgloss , it doesn’t last all day, and It does settle into your creases so you need to use a lip scrub before you apply this!
Last is this Chella highlighter in the color IVORY This is perfect for underneath the brows it highlights and leaves a matte Light color underneath your brows , I also personally also like using this in my tear duct area to highlight there as well… No complaints about this products its great!
So here is my makeup for today…. The star of the show is the Burts Bees Lip Shimmers in the color caramel I love this and it looks so great for the fall , a perfect fall nude , I like to call it!They are cruelty free & all natural + they recycle!
Have you tried the burts bees lip Shimmers yet? What do you think about them?

$1, I love the Dollar store! I love getting things for a dollar and I absolutly love good products that are just $1. These products aren’t cheap, they are just inexpensive! Today I thought I would share with you my favorite Products that are just $1! These work great and like i said they cost almost nothing!
Products: Lets start with Eyes….
Elf $1 Brightening eye palettes: Drama,Ivy, & Glam : These have great pigmentation, blend easy & last all day plus they have a fantastic variety of shades!
Elf $1 Natural Lashes: THese are great they are natural and well they are LASHES what more can I say.. These are a great alternative for someone who is experimenting with lashes because they are so inexpensive..
Wet N wild Color Icon Eye pencils: These pencils are creamy, soft, pigmented and I have never had a problem with them.. You do have to sharpen them put they look great in waterline or smudged on lower lash line : did I mention they have some fun colors!
Profusion Brightening eye palettes: I found these at Walgreens around the Holidays like christmasy time, I have shade 01 which is more of a bronzy palette & 06 which is a pinky palette. These are great eyeshadows plus they can also work as a bronzy cheeky color or pinky cheek color. you can also use them as a nice highlight if you just concentrate on the lighter colors. THese are great palettes they are soft, great pigmentation & I’m super excited to see them again this year! Keep an Eye out on your local Walgreens!
Now lets go to Cheeks!
Elf $1 Blush: The two colors I have are Tickled Pink & Glow.. Tickled Pink is a gorgeous pink with some sparkles here and there , Glow is an orangey bronzy pink with shimmer. Sort of a peachy tone.
I added in these cute cuffs from the dollar store they are slap on and a great accesorie for a halloween costume ( I used these ones for my catwoman halloween tutorial, check it out if you havent!)
Elf All Over Face Color: Pink Lemonade this is a great cream product that is multi purpose you can use it on cheeks lips or eyes! I actually used this as a blush on my wedding day its absolutely beautiful. Elf Shimmering Facial Whips: Color Citrus & Golden Peach, This are also multi purpose they can be used for a blush, highlight , lipgloss ,eyeshadow or you can add them to your foundation for a blowy, dewy look! They have a great shade variety tot fit any need..
Next Are Lips…
Wet N Wild $1 Lipsticks: These are great they have a unique silver sheen to them and some have shimmer, but they are super gorgeous I actually wore the pink one Shade 502A in my products I regret buying video its a great pink/purple shade! The bronzy one is the shade 547 B Nyc Lipsticks : these ones are great too I have mousse which is a nude lipstick that is super creamy and has a bit of a shine finish , no shimmer at all..THen I have mahogany which is a deep vampy color that I used in my catwoman tutorial, Last this beautiful angel pink with a little bit of a frost finish called Petal perfect for winter time if paired up with a white sweater..
Elf Lipsticks $1 Essential line: THese are great lipsticks I i was really surprised by the quality my favorite one is Fearless which is a beautiful true red, this lipstick has a staining effect sos it is perfect for a date or night out! The other shades I i have are Nostalgic which is a nude & Coral They have some great shades to pick from and better yet they are only $1!
Elf Liquid lipstick & Lip glosses, : As you can tell I have lots of these , they both pretty much wear the same like a lipgloss, except the liquid lipsticks have more pigmentation, but with that said the lip glosses aren’t super sheer either they are creamy and soft not stick at all!
Last Nail Polish….
First off I have Wet N Wild WIld Shine Nailpolishes : These are so fantastic, the formula is smooth and pigmented You can get by with one coat thats how pigmented they are! The colors I have here are Blazed, Wild Card, Casting Call, Sunny Side Up.. Nabi Nail Polish: I got these for christmas , My brother Got these at a little mexican shop by where we live, Check you mexican shops for very Inexpensive nail polish, these are great quality. The colors I have are Velvet I,Metallic Green,Teal,Pure Pink, & Flamingo (which I wore on my product I regret Buying Video..)
Nyc Nail polish: Nyc has some great $1 Nail polish this one is the color Tudor City which is a great “fall” Teal color Then Elf Mango madness polish, When I bought this it was only $1 Dollar now I think these cost $2 But I still wanted to include it because It was $1 when I bought it, This shade is great but not all the polishes are but this shade has a great formula easy to work with and smooth….
So these are my favorite Products for $1 ! Hopefully this gave you some Ideas of super inexpensive (not cheap) Products!

I love Halloween and the crazy makeup looks that come along with it , but before we dive head first into october lets look at my makeup favorites for the Month of September!
Nyc In a NewYork Min Nailpolish- Sidewalkers This color is such a beautiful side walk light grey
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nailpolish- Grey Area This deep grey paired up with sidewalkers looks great together, I have been wearing both of these paired up together ever chance I got !
from Left To Right :Cranberry Crush,Honey Love,Candid Coral SideWalkers, Grey Area
Jordana Twist Shine Balm Stains-Honey Love , I have three of these balm stains But I have mostly been wearing Honey Love which is a gorgeous Nude Purple toned Lip balm stain, I did a whole review on these already on my blog check it out! http://bondbeautyful.com/twist/
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil- PureGold Nyx Jumbo Pencils are the best bases to go under any eyeshadow this pure gold one is so pretty under bronzes, etc Have you tried any nyx jumbo pencils yet?
Pixi Lash Booster Mascara I got this mascara in an ipsy bag the skinny brush makes it super easy to use on the lower lashes
Smashbox Audition Taupe Palette This palette is great it has a eyebrow gel, and eyebrow powder,a cream highlighter, a cream eyeshadow and three neutral eyeshadows
Elf Warm Bronzer I have been loving this as a bronzer but also a BLUSH! I swirl all the colors together to make a beautiful bronzy blush then I add just the blush color onto the apples of my cheeks , its truely BONDBEAUTYFUL
Nyx Cream Blush -HotPink This is another product I got in an Ipsy bag, This is such a pigmented blush in a cream form.. You have to be super careful because you only need the slightest amount on your brush , or fingers , a little goes a long way… If I find I applied to much blush then I dip my brush in my Rimmel Stay matte powder and I apply it over top to sheer out the hot pink craze and give me a beautiful flush on my cheeks
So these are my September Favorites , What are yours? Are there any new products you have just been loving?

I hope you all are having a great day, Im doing a review for you today!…I recently bought 3 Jordana Twist & Shine Balm Stains from Walgreens!
They each cost $2.99 & each can be found at walgreens ( I haven’t seen Jordana products anywhere else)
The shades I got were ….
Honey Love(great nude)
Cranberry Crush(Perfect fall color)
Candied Coral(Gorgeous Fun,Bright Color)
*Fun Fact: Jordana is made by the same company that makes Milani!
These Jumbo Lip Balms Claim To be balm stains, Which remind me of the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains…(The only difference revlon balm stains Retail for $7.99 and Jordana are only $2.99)
First off these balm stains have a very very faint fruity smell to them, nothing strong (Just in case your sensitive to smells..) I don’t mind, they smell delicious to me!
I love how they slide on so smoothly and evenly! Unlike ordinary lip stains , these are hydrating and moisturizing. The formula Is thin so its easy to forget that you have lipstick on… They do stain your lips for sure, making them all day!
Heres what they look like when they rub off ( Leaves Color behind hence the staining effect!) So your lips look flushed and gorgeous… I love this because I have dry lips and some lipsticks tend to fall in the cracks , which looks horrible. I had no problem with these they look smooth and have turned into my go to date night lip color!
They are incredible rich, and pigmented as you can see but if you want a more sheer flush of color you can use your finger to blend and sheer them out before it sets on your lips….
Like I said you can’t beat the lasting power, even after the shines gone you are left with a gorgeous flush of color all night long…
So to sum it up, These are great they last long, they are hydrating, they have great pigmentation, and they only cost $2.99…. Sorry Revlon But Jordana just won my heart!!!!….
So now that you heard what I think…. What do you think?? Have you Tried these yet? If so what colors are a must have??
