Happy Friday! Today Im doing a review on these amazing lipsticks. These are the LA Colors Lipstick & Lipgloss Duos. You can find these at the Dollar tree, yes you heard right , the dollar tree. So take a look at the swatches live, & all the pros and cons of the products.
I have six of the colors so lets go through the swatches.
Pros & Cons:
This Lipstick is very pigmented , it has a good punch of pigment to it! So be aware, if you are a sheer girl you won’t like this. As far as the finish it is a semi matte finish, but yet its still very comfortable instead of drying. If you like the shimmer & shine it has a gloss to go along with it. The gloss is very thin and changes the finish. I know some glosses affect the lasting power of a lipstick this one doesn’t because it is so thin. It does have an odor to it , it smells like Laffy Taffy Candy. I love it but if you don’t, don’t worry when applied the smell goes away!
Now I know I haven’t done makeup tutorials in a while , don’t worry they are coming! I have A sneak peak of a future valentines day tutorial!
So stay Tuned for this makeup tutorial coming soon! So what lipstick shade would you most likely wear? Let me Know , I personally love Flushed because the red is so easy to wear. And it looks good on any undertone!
Till Next Time,
Remember, Beauty Comes From Within so let it SHINE!
It is a beautiful monday & I thought what a better day then to learn something new! So today Im going to be telling you all about highlighting! Im going to be answering some simple questions: what is highlighting? What kinds of highlighters are there? Why should I highlight? How do I apply it & Where? What brushes do I need? So lets begin…
Products Talked About:
ELF Shimmering facial whip: Lilac petal
Bare Minerals Face & Body Color: Geniune Jade
Smashbox Face & Body Palette: Gold Mine
Elf Glow Bronzing Powder: Sunkissed
Color Institute Twist Up Blush Stick
Neutrogena Concealer: Fair
1. Whats Highlighting?
I know we all look at bridal magazines or celebrity magazines & it always looks like the light hits there cheeks & nose at just the right angle! Well thats not the case , they give that illusion using makeup , specifically a highlighter! So if you want to have that glow effect then keep reading!
Its A makeup product , it can be a powder , liquid or cream product That you apply to your face to add a glow or to extenuate certain features! (gives you a glow also known as bridal glow or flawless appearance) I wasn’t even outside when I took this picture but yet the sun managed to hit me right above my cheek bones! 😀 Its all about the highlighter!
2. What can be used to highlight with?
Well You can use a powder, cream or liquid that has a light shimmer or that is just lighter than your skin tone.. Usually they have a champagne color, pinky color, or gold tone to it!
3. Where do you highlight on your face?
So you can highlight on top of your cheek bones, bridge of your nose, cupids bow, center of fore head, underneath your brow, right above your brow & even on your chin (highlight areas you want people to notice on your face , & places you want the sun to hit just right)… You do not have to highlight on all of those areas but as you can see I did on most of those & it looks pretty good! … Usually women highlight on there cheek bones & Nose.
So I hope this was helpful .. For more information don’t forget to watch the video above! So here is my complete look for the day..
I went with a very natural eye look & Nude pink lip & A very Glowy highlight…

So what are you doing this monday morning? Till Next Time..
I hope your having a good start to your MONDAY… So schools back in and I thought why not make class fun today.. Lets talk all about bronzer! I have had a lot of you asking me about bronzer , if you can wear it, if your too light to wear it, how to wear it , what it is, what contouring is… I will show you how to universally contour ; but I am planning to do a contour 101 video where I show you how to do it according to your face shape.. But for now lets learn all about bronzer …
(Make sure that if you want to stay updated with my videos you subscribe on the right hand side!)
Bronzer : There are two types , A Shimmer one (Used to add glow) or a Matte one (Used for contouring)
Glow Bronzer must be 1-2 Shades darker than your skin tone, usually has a gold shimmer to it
Contouring bronzer needs to be 2-3 shades darker than your skin tone & needs to be completely matte
What is contour? It is basically corrective makeup designed to reshape your face.. (make your cheeks look slimmer, your forehead smaller your nose smaller etc)
Can anyone use bronzer? Yes you just need to pick the right shade at type for you!
I hope this was helpful for you!
Today Im actually wearing the Hard candy Bronzer on my cheeks like a blush, topped off with Milani Baked Blush : Rose D’ Oro

Till Next Time , & Remember Beauty Comes From Within
Welcome to 2014 , Its a new year ! Today I thought I would reflect on last years Beauty Favorites! Things that I love & Tell you why!
First Off Hair & Skin: Bed Head Moisture Maniac Shampoo & Conditioner have literally saved My hair from brittle distraction! I Got them together at Cosco for $20, The smell is amazing & right away I noticed a difference!
My Absolute Favorite fragrance for 2013 Is the Pink Sweet & Flirty Perfume from Victorias Secrets ! It is a very girly, fruity with a hint of flower scent & the best part is it only cost $20
I have used aveeno for most of the year but Clean & clear morning burst cleanser has been the star… The one I am using right now is this one which I won’t get again because It has caffeine But the Fruit Infusions kind is so great! They smell good , they are gentle enough for daily use & they are just so refreshing!
Lately I have gone back to the Silk From Silk essentials I got this at regency beauty institute & it works amazing on styled hair, It makes you look like you just came out of a salon! So silk , soft & shiny…
Now Going on to Makeup!
For Eyeshadow I am absolutely loving the L’oreal Wear infinite kerrys bronzes quad the colors are some amazing bronzy neutrals, that are so pigmented & rich!
I also added this ELF $1 Eyeshadow quad in Drama because it is the perfect smokey eye, the eyeshadows are put together nicely to give you a beautiful easy smokey eye! For just a dollar you can’t beat that!
Eyebrows are a big must do every single day! I have used pencils, shadows, gels & all the above but I keep going back to Elf Eyebrow Kit : Medium It has a gel & A Shadow Its just fantastic! IT only cost $3 & it even comes with a really great eyebrow brush!
A Blush I keep on coming back to , to the point where I have hit pan is The Elf Blush: Tickled Pink It is a great universally Flattering everyday blush… It works with any look & it is just my go to blush!
Next is a Random Favorite , My Bow! I have made these bows myself… I did a DIY Bow Clip Blog post already showing you how to do this but it is so great & I am not going to lie to you but I am obsessed with BOWS!
I have tried a lot of foundations but by far my favorite to use is the Loreal magic Nude liquid powder foundation! It is a liquid foundation with a powder finish, it feels like no other drugstore foundation , it has a medium coverage & it leaves your face look natural..
The concealer duo I have been loving & has been working really well is the Elf $1 All over face concealer: Honey & The Kirkland mineral exact concealer .. I use the elf concealer to conceal blemishes & The Kirkland Concealer in yellow for under the eyes! It works amazing together!
My absolute favorite bronzer this year is the Elf Glow: Bronzed It is a mineral bronzer .. It is a neutral brown rather than warm so it is perfect for contouring!
So my favorite nail polishes of the year are Wet N Wild Candilicious , Sinful Colors: Tempest & Avon: Midnight Plum.. These nail polish are so beautiful they dry fast, apply evenly, & are really pigmented with the first coat!
Last , But not least is…. LIPSTICKS! I have raved about these lipsticks in my blog before because they are that great .. I did an in-depth review about the jordana twist & Shine balm Stains Honey Love & cranberry Crush.. They are really inexpensive at $2.99 a piece , they are moisturizing , pigmented & the best part is it is long lasting (leaves a stain)… The LA Colors Lipstick & lipgloss DUO is also another lip product I have relentlessly talked about because they are soft, creamy but they have a more matte effect & the best part is it leaves a stain that is gorgeous! Plus they are only $1 at the dollar tree , these are my fAvorite shades Flushed & Charmed…
So here is my Makeup look for today! I have talked about the profusion palettes At walgreens & the dollar tree… I am using the Dazzle me Petite Palette on my eyes to give me a more neutral eye!
This shirt is from Wet Seal Just in case you are wondering!
