Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Hey guys!!!!

Do you hate applying your face makeup with your fingers?? I know I do. Do you think the beauty blender is too expensive?? I know I do for sure. Want a cheaper alternative?? Well I have it for you today!!


Now I will say I have never tried the beauty blender so I can't say if its a dupe. I just started using my first foundation recently and the first time I used it I used my hands and I didn't really like the way it looked when I applied it that way. Then the next day I used the sponge and I am so in love with the way my foundation looks. 

First you have to run it under water and squeeze all the water out. Then I pour my foundation on the back of my hand, dot it all over my face, and lastly blend it out with the sponge. This helps blend the foundation very nicely and your foundation to look flawless. I don't know how I was able to live without using this makeup sponge. 

Just make sure you clean this every few days so there won't be any bacteria on your sponge. I clean it the same way I clean my brushes and if you want to know how click here. You can get this at Ulta for $5.99

Nails of the Week

Hey guys!!!

I decided to talk about what is on my nails for the week. I will be doing this a couple times a month since I like to change my nail colors frequently!

I used China Glaze polish in the color Frostbite and on top i used the Wet n Wild Wild Shine glitter polish. I am not too sure what the name of it is, but it is my favorite glitter polish to use.

This was my first time using a China Glaze nail polish, but I was kinda disappointed. I had to apply the color about 3-4 times for it to be this pretty bright color. If you don't have time to sit there and apply this many coats and wait for it to dry I don't recommend this color. 

The upside about this nail polish is that it lasts on your nails without chipping. Normally mine start chipping after 3 days because I wash my hands so many times a day since I work with kids. Right now its the 6th day and I only have minor chipping. Maybe I will try another color in this brand soon. You guys have any recommendations??

Garnier Clean Nourishing Cleansing Oil

Hey guys!!!!

Ever since I was 15 I had used make up wipes to remove my make up. As much as I try to be gentle with the wipes I always tend to be really rough with my skin. I have my favorite wipes to use, but I been wanting to try a cleansing oil for the longest now. 

I had seen this product when I had went to Walmart, but I wasn't able to buy it at the time. Then my most favorite YouTuber Ashley aka Makeupbyamarie spoke about it and how much she loved it soooo I decided to get it from Ulta. 


From the first time I used this product I fell in love with it. It made my skin feel really soft and removed all of my face and eye make up with one pump and a half. Most importantly it removed the most difficult mascara to remove which is Maybelline The Rocket. I will never buy makeup wipes again lol. I am more gentle with my skin with the cleansing oil. Also this did not break me out at all. I highly recommend it if you are looking for an affordable cleansing oil. I hope this works out for you like it did for me.

Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara

Hey guys!!!!

I have the most stubborn eyelashes ever!!! Mine are long and grow straight down so I have to curl them. Ever since I started with make up I would put mascara on and they would always fall back down. For some reason I always thought that was normal.

As usual when I started watching YouTube and quite a few people were raving about this mascara and Danna aka LollyDolly128 has stubborn lashes as well and she was talking about using waterproof because that's the only thing that will keep her lashes up. 

Soooo after a while I finally went to Walmart and picked up Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express mascara. 
$5.94



From the first time I used this mascara I fell in love!! I couldn't believe that my lashes actually stayed up the whole day! The only con about this mascara is that it is very very hard to remove! I was using make up wipes and it was hard to get it off, but I recently got a cleansing oil and it removed it very well. 

If you are having difficulty with your lashes staying curled you should try going waterproof! Now that's all I'm going to buy.

Kiss imPRESS Press On Manicure

Hey guys!!

Influenster sent me some KISS nail products and one of them was the KISS imPRESS Press On Manicure.


On the packaging it said that it lasts for a week on your nails. I was very skeptical about that so I decided to try them out last week. 


I put them on and they were easy to put on. My thoughts were "they look nice, but let's see how long it lasts." It said on the packaging that you have to wait about 45 minutes before washing your hands. 

Just as I thought they did not last long at all. Soon after I washed my hands one fell off and I am the type to wash my hands many many times a day so in two hours they were all off! I had more left in the bottle and I just threw it away.

It was nice to try something new, but sadly it was a fail.

Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candles

Hey guys!!!

This will be totally random because I am going to be talking about candles.  As usual I have heard about these candles all over YouTube and always wondered why these candles were so hyped since you can get any candle from anywhere.

I went to Bath & Body Works annual sale and I saw some candles on sale and I decided to try one out. Normally one candle is $20-$22.50 and I got it for $10.


I was highly impressed about this product. My favorite thing about it is that it doesn't have to be lit up for my room to smell good so I would just leave it open sometimes. Once lit up OMG this candle scent can spread out all around your house and smells so good. I have to be told to turn it off because my dad hates candles which is why I don't light it up everyday.

Once I run out of this one I will recycle it and use it as a brush holder. 
If you have been thinking about getting one I recommend that you do. Just wait for the sales and coupons. The sale they normally have is 2 for $22 and they have it very often so just keep an eye out.

Rimmel London SCANDAL EYES Eyeliners

Hey guys!!!

Recently Influenster sent me a box of goodies from Rimmel London and in it came two eyeliners. One is Rimmel Scandal Eyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner and the second one is Rimmel Scandal Eyes Precision Micro Eyeliner. 


I was excited to receive these because I had just finished my black liner and I was in search of a new one.


First is the Precision Micro Eyeliner. This is a great felt tip liner and very easy to work with. You can do a thin line or a thick line with it whatever your preference is. Also you could practice doing a wing with this. Only thing I didn't like about this is that its not as pigmented as I like it to be. I like my liner to be really black and with this I have to build it up.


Next is the Thick & Thin Eyeliner. I tried to take a good picture of the tip so you can see how it looks like. I really hope you can tell lol. It's a unique tip, you can turn it one way or the other way depending on how thin or thick you want your liner. I like my liner not too thin and not too thick and its really easy to achieve that. This one is more pigmented than the other one so I gravitate to this one more.

Both of these eyeliners are said to be waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof, and tear-proof. I can say that it is true so far since my eyes get watery when I'm at work and it didn't smudge or anything. If anything changes I will keep you guys updated.

 I have seen them both at the drugstores for $5.99.
