Jaclyn Hill Favorites Morphe Palette

Hey guys!!

At first I wasn't going to do this review because it is a limited edition palette, but I really wanted to tell you guys about the product. I know you can get these shadows individually for $2-$3 a shadow. I am talking about the Jaclyn Hill Favorites Palette by Morphe Brushes. 

When I started hearing about this brand I was a little hesitant to try anything because of how cheap each eyeshadow is. Once I saw that Jaclyn Hill was coming out with a palette with them I decided it was the perfect time to try them out. When I first got it in the mail I immediately wanted to swatch it to see what all the hype was about....

As you guys can see the pigmentation is amazing!! Most of these swatches were just one swipe. I was so surprised for $2-$3 a shadow this is the best pigmentation I had ever seen. I especially love all the shimmery shadows in the palette! 

Now as for blendability and staying power. These shadows blend like a dream. One time I had applied too much in my crease and it blended out without any trouble. Lasting power I always use an eye primer so for me it lasts all day. 

Some colors have a little fallout, but all you have to do is tap the excess off your brush and it will be good. It is only the very shimmery shades that have the fallout.

Overall I am in love with this palette and the brand in general. I love that the palette has neutrals and colors in it. It is a great everyday palette for me. I highly recommend you guys try out Morphe Brushes eyeshadows if you have not done so yet. I am really interested in trying out the brushes next. Which one you guys recommend??

Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks

Hey guys!!!

I have found another favorite lipstick formula from the drugstore! I love the Wet n Wild Fergie lipsticks and the NYX High Voltage lipsticks. I had seen a lot of people talk about the Maybelline Creamy Matte lipsticks and I was interested in trying them out. 

(Craving Coral, Touch of Spice, Divine Wine)

(Craving Coral, Touch of Spice, Divine Wine)

I first got Touch of Spice because everyone and their mother were dying for this shade! I tried it and I see why people love it. It is such a gorgeous pinky brown mauve shade and it is a perfect everyday shade. After that I got Craving Coral because I been looking for a nice orange lipstick like a had been saying tons of times before, It is a beautiful orange shade and it is good for the spring and summer. Lastly, I had been looking for Divine Wine everywhere and it had been sold out. My friend was able to find it by her and I love it! This is beautiful dark vampy shade for the fall.

Now for the formula of these lipsticks. These are very creamy as the name suggests and very comfortable on the lips. It lasts a good few hours on my lips, but of course once I eat I have to reapply. It doesn't dry out my lips probably because it is a creamy matte formula. 

The only one disappointing is that the Craving Coral shade for some reason isn't as pigmented on my lips as it is on the swatch. It isn't patchy which is good, but I will need to find a good lip liner for that one. The other two are pigmented with one swipe with no issues. These don't get on my teeth at all which is a plus haha.

Overall these are my new holy grail favorite lipstick formula. If I could get all the shades I would because I love them that much. Have you guys tried these lipsticks?? What do you guys think of them?? Which ones are your favorite shades??

Birchbox September 2015 Unboxing

Hey guys!!!

It is that time again to show you what I received in my Birchbox, As much as I have been loving my Birchbox recently this month was a little blah for me.

  • Davines This is a Sea Salt Spray-  This is supposed to give beachy waves and volume, but products like these never seem to work on my hair so I might give this to a friend and see if it works for them.
  • Acure Organics Facial Cleansing Gel Superfruit + CGF- This infuses skin with anti-aging ingredients for a fresh younger looking complexion. I probably won't use this one I am not sure just yet. 
  • Japonesque Velvet Touch Eye Shadow- It is a velvety shadow that balances a richly pigment hue with a subtle hint of shimmer. I will most likely give this to someone else just because I have similar shades that I love more.
  • L'Artisan Parfumuer- I always enjoy trying out new perfumes so this is a good product. 
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil- I already have a holy grail brow product, but I will try to give this one a shot and see if I like it. 
Those are my products in my September Birchbox. What did you guys get in your Birchbox? Do you like what you received? If you don't receive Birchbox then it is a monthly subscription for $10 a month for 4-5 samples to deluxe sample sized products. If you want to sign up go here

Jouer Tint

Hey guys!!!

I had been wanting to try Jouer products for a long time and when I received one in my April Birchbox I was so excited to try it out! I received a sample of the Jouer Tint in Petal. The product can be used on the cheeks or on the lips. 

A long while ago I had tried a cream blush, but I hated it because it applied patchy. Because of that I was a little hesitant to try this out, but I had heard great things about Jouer so I had high hopes for this product.

The shade Petal is a pretty soft pink and it is very pigmented. The swatch is only one swipe. A little bit goes a long way with this product. I love to use the ELF Small Stipple brush with it and it applies the product so flawlessly. If I am not careful and apply too much I can have clown cheeks, but luckily it blends out like a dream.

When you touch the product it feels creamy and once you apply it on your cheeks with a brush it feels like a powder once it sets. This blush lasts on my cheeks allllll daaayyyy. I am in love with it. I apply my makeup around 5ish in the morning and by the time I get home at 4:30pm the blush is still there and just as vibrant as when I first applied it. 

I know I have seen some people set their cream blushes with a powder blush to set it and with this product I don't have to do that. 

Overall this blush a holy grail product. Once I run out I will definitely run out and get it again or maybe even get a new shade at Generation Beauty next month. 

Have you guys tried any Jouer products?? What are some of your favorites??

NYX Intense Butter Glosses

Hey guys!!!!

It is time to talk about another product I got at IMATS NYC in April and I kinda went a little crazy with this particular product. I am talking about the NYX Intense Butter Glosses. I actually bought 6 different shades. I had seen swatches and I loved the way they looked so I went all out.

(Chocolate Crepe, Apple Crisp, Toasted Marshmallow, Spice Cake, Napoleon, Tres Leches)

(Chocolate Crepe, Apple Crisp, Toasted Marshmallow, Spice Cake, Napoleon, Tres Leches)

I love this product! Although there are two shades that are disappointing and those are
Napoleon and Tres Leches. On the swatches that I saw on YouTube those colors looked gorgeous and I have been trying to find the perfect nude lip for me so I was hoping Tres Leches would be it. Most nudes I have tried have looked patchy on my lips for some reason. Napoleon is just a unique color that I wanted to have, but it also looks patchy.

The swatches on my arm are only one swipe. Even on my arm it doesn't look patchy, but unfortunately on my lips they do.  If you love pigmented glossy lips then this is a product you should try. Or if you like a color and you don't like a glossy lip then you can use translucent powder to matte out the lip color.

One thing I will recommend is that you use a good lip liner because it can feather if you don't. I always have issues with lip products getting on my teeth, but with this one I need to do the finger trick everytime if not it will be on my teeth.

I love how pigmented this is and it lasts about 3 hours before I need to reapply. The lip liner I love to use are the NYX Slim Pencil liners. I have stubborn lips and a lot of lip glosses dry my lips even more and these glosses do not.

I have my top favorite shades. I love Apple Crisp and Spice Cake and I will always repurchase those two shades. I especially love Apple Crisp because it makes your teeth look more white which is a huge plus. I also love Toasted Marshmallow and Chocolate Crepe, but I have similar shades in a different formula and I prefer those. 

Have you guys tried these products?? What do you guys think?? Do you have a favorite NYX product???
