Emite Make Up Artist Colour Powder Blush

Hey guys!!!

I have been chatting a lot about stuff I have received from Generation Beauty I decided to change it up and talk about something I have received from Glossybox. It has been a few months since I have received the boxes and I haven't reviewed anything I have gotten. Time to change that.

I received the Emite Make Up Artist Colour Powder Blush in the shade 108 in my September Glossybox. I didn't post my September box, but oh well. I had never heard of this brand so I wasn't sure what to think about it. 




What I found interesting, I don't know why I do, was that when I went to the website it asked me to translate my page. I haven't had to do that with any product from either Birchbox or Ipsy. 

I love that this product is free of parabens, perfumes, cyclic silicones, completely vegetable, and most importantly not tested on animals. My skin has been sensitive lately so I know I can rely on this product on not breaking me out even more. 

This blush is a pretty terra cotta color and it gives you a pretty natural flush to your cheeks. It is very blendable so if I accidentally apply too much I don't have to worry about looking like a clown. Only thing people might not like about it is that it is powdery, but it doesn't bother me too much. 

Overall I love love this blush. It has been one of my go to blushes recently. I even took it with me traveling. I would repurchase, but it doesn't tell me the price on the website so I am not sure if I will be able to. 

Have you guys tried this product?? What do you think?? Where do you go to purchase these products??

treStiQue Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon

Hey guys!!!

Yet another product that I received from Ipsy and Generation Beauty. I am talking about the treStiQue Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon. I received the shade Ventetian Gold in one of my last Ipsy Bags and Kona Coffee in my Generation Beauty Swag Bag.




At first I didn't think it would work for me because it is way too creamy. I always use primer before any shadow base because my lids are oily. The website says that it is a 12 hour eyeshadow that is that is buildable, blendable, and crease free. I agree with all those claims 100%. It blends like a dream and lasts all day crease free. I have had watery eyes and still no creasing.

I actually love to use these as a base so my powder eyeshadows can appear more vibrant and last all day. These have been one of my go to shadow sticks along with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk and Jordana Shadow Pencil in Almond.

The full size has a smudger on the other end and because these are mini sizes it doesn't have that. The full sizes are $26 and that just shocked me. If the smudger needs to be replaced it can be replaced. That is so interesting I never heard of that before. You can also buy 3 mini trios for $32 and you can mix and match with different products on the site. That is a great deal.

Overall I am loving these shadow pencils. I am not sure if I would ever do the full sized products. I probably do the 3 mini trios. Have you guys tried these products?? What do you think?? What are some of your favorite treStiQue products??

Glossybox December 2015

Hey guys!!!

It is Glossybox time!!! I always get excited when I receive this box in the mail because it is never disappointing. You always get full size products for the most part in this box and that's what I love.






  • Simple Sugars All-Natural Body Scrub- This is a handmade and all-natural body scrub great for even the most sensitive skin. The sugars and natural oils will scrub the stress away leaving your skin refreshed. I am using a body scrub right now so I won't be using this one till I am done with that one and I can't wait to try this one!
  • Color Club Nail Polish- I got the shade Feverish and it is a pretty red burgandy color. I love this brand of nail polishes and I am excited to put this one my toes soon. 
  • Gold Label Cosmetics Creme Lipstick- This is a cruelty-free formula that melts into the lips and saturates them with lasting color. I think I got the shade First Class and it is a pretty red color. I have heard about this lipstick before and I don't remember if it was good or bad, but I am still willing on trying this out.
  • Glossybox- I am thinking this eyeshadow is from the Glossybox brand I am not sure to be honest. I got the shade Glossybox Mauve. It is a pretty shimmery purple and it will be great for a purple smokey eye. 
  • MTJ Cosmetics High Definition Mascara- This product is supposed to provide drama and non clumpy lashes. I have a lot of mascaras open at the moment so I will not be using this one for a while. I hope to try this out soon I love trying mascaras. 
That is what I got in my Glossybox this month. What did you guys receive in your box this month??

If you are interested in getting this subscription box it is $21 a month for sometimes 5 deluxe samples, but mostly full sized products. It normally has higher end products. Go here if you are interested in learning more about it.

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder

Hey guys!!!

 In my project pan I mentioned that I wanted to use up the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze-03. I got this in a Laura Mercier 500 point perk and I have heard a lot about the shade highlight-01 so I had high hopes that this product would be great as well. 




I am used to my bronzer being very pigmented and having to be very careful with it because if I don't I will look muddy. This product I don't have that problem. This product looks natural on the skin and doesn't look harsh at all. I do my makeup very early in the morning and thanks to this I never worry about having a heavy hand and making myself look muddy.

The swatch on the picture is actually a heavy swatch. This product is good for people who tend to be heavy handed with their bronzer or even beginners who are still trying to get the hang of bronzing and contouring. I am still trying to get the hang of contouring to be honest. 

The website says that it is supposed to give you a healthy radiance glow to the skin and it does just that. It is very blendable and easy to work with.  

Overall I do love this product. I still stand by my holy grail Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer 100%, but I would repurchase this one as well. This one is a new holy grail everyday bronzer and the too faced would be special occasions when I can take my time with my makeup and not worry being heavy handed with it.

Have you guys tried this product out?? What do you think?? I still want the highlighter, but I am using up a few before I get that one. What are some of you favorite Laura Mercier products?? I have tried a few and so far nothing has disappointed me yet.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer

Hey guys!!!

I have been loving trying out new stuff all the time and I am excited to let you guys know about all of it. I received the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer from Generation Beauty and I was excited to try this out especially since LustreLux loves it. 


I have the shade Tan.

Before I get into the review.....How CUTE is this little sample??!!! I died when I saw it! Anyways back to the review!

This concealer has anti-aging ingredients, its crease-proof, conceals age spots, redness, dark circles, and more. I actually had low hopes for it because it is a thick concealer and I had tried the Tarte concealer that is just as thick, but I hated that one. At first I didn't like it to be honest. I decided to still keep trying it till I use it all up.

It is very full coverage and I love it for when I don't get enough sleep or even no sleep at all. At first I would set my under eyes with a brush and it would still crease on me very badly. I decided to set it with a damp beauty blender using the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder and "bake" while I did my brows. Ever since I tried that technique I am in love with this concealer now.

I tried to blend it out with a brush and a beauty blender aannddd I prefer the beauty blender for sure! To me it is too thick to blend out with a brush. I do apply it with a brush before I blend it out with a beauty blender. 

This little tube is lasting me a long time because a little goes a long way and I have been using it almost everyday since I started. I only like this under my eyes, but for the rest of the face I use the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer because I feel its too thick for the rest of my face. 

Overall I love this concealer and it is now my holy grail concealer. I will definitely be repurchasing this once I run out. I have a couple more It Cosmetics products that I am testing out and I will talk about them later. 

Have you guys tried out this product?? What do you think?? What are some of your favorite It Cosmetics products??

Spice Vox Box

Hey guys!!!

I have received yet another Vox Box complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. This time I got the Spice Vox Box. I really liked this one because it has different variety of things in this box. It was from food, nails, hair, skin, and feet. 


As you can see it is a great variety of stuff. I was excited to try everything out. I started with the Veggie Stix! 


I got the Good Health Veggie Stix and I had tried a different brand, but it was practically the same thing before. I love these chips. These are some of my favorites to purchase. Now I have been purchasing this brand ever since I got this. 


I got the SoapBox Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner. Now this was what I was so excited for! First of all it smells like coconut and I have been loving that scent recently. This product also contains shea butter and when I tried this on my hair....OMG! My hair was so soft. I couldn't believe how soft it was. I like this brand because I found out that when you buy products from them you help provide clean water for people in need. Needless to say I will be supporting them in the future.


Next I got the Boots Botanics Hydrating Day Cream. I honestly only used this once because soon after I used it my skin just started acting up so bad. I don't know if it was this or what so I will wait and see. If it is this that broke me out then I will give it to a friend. It did leave my skin soft and it sinked into the skin nicely. 



I got nail polish! YES! I got the SinfulColors SinfulShine nail polishes. I got the gel top coat and a pretty shade(will look for color later out of town at the moment). The top coat I actually love it. It gives a pretty shine to my nails no matter which polish I use. The color was a little streaky so I had to do 3 coats in order to get this opacity. It lasted 3 days before chipping. 


Next I got the Not Your Mother's Whip It Up Volumizing Mousse. I honestly do not use mousse in my hair because it never works for me. I went ahead and tried this just to see if it will work. As I thought it did nothing for my hair. I will be giving this to a friend. 


I got some Yogi Tea bag samples. I already know I love to drink Yogi Tea, but these two were not my cup of tea. I don't like the flavors I got. I love to drink my tea when I am cold and I want to warm myself up. These were given to my Fiance since he loves tea as well. 


Lastly, I got the foot petals. At first I was like oh no! Last time I tried something similar to this was crap. I didn't have high hopes for this. I put it inside my boots that I wear most of the time and it feels comfortable and warm. The foot things are fuzzy instead of plastic like the last ones I tried. I like that you were able to cut it to your size. 

That is all I received in the Spice Vox Box. Did you receive this box?? What was your favorite product out of all?? I think mine is the Soapbox Shampoo and Conditioner.

Jesse's Girl Cosmetics Nail Polishes by JulieG

Hey guys!!!

I know I haven't spoken about nail polishes in a long while, but I thought it was time to chat about it again. I have heard about JulieG Nail Polishes for a long while especially from ItsJudyTime a while back and I was bummed that I can't buy it because I don't have a Rite Aid here.

I received one polish from Ipsy I believe and I received two from Generation beauty at Jesse's Girl Cosmetics booth. I got the shades Beach Bonfire and Lolli Pop from Gen beauty and I got Damsel from Ipsy. 

(Beach Bonfire, Damsel, Lolli Pop)


Beach Bonfire is actually my most favorite one! This one is pigmented with one coat, but I always do two coats with any nail polish no matter what. This one lasts on my nails the longest. It can go a week without chipping. It doesn't even need a top coat because it is very shimmery and glittery. I actually wore this one for one month because I loved it so much.


Damsel is the very first one I got through Ipsy and I was excited to try it out because of all the hype I had heard. This is a very pretty pink and this one needed two coats and I always topped it off with a shimmery polish from NYC brand. This one lasts on my nails 5 days without chipping as long as I don't mess with them. This one is my second favorite. 


I love love the color, but this one is my least favorite only because it takes 3 coats to get it to be opaque. I also have to wait for the polish to dry before each coat which is weird. I don't use it often, but when I do I love the end result. 

Overall I love the JulieG Nail Polishes and for $3.99 these are worth getting for sure. I want more of the same formula as Beach Bonfire. I hope I can get to a Rite Aid soon so I can get more of them! Of course you can get them online at their website, but I prefer getting polishes in stores.

Have you guys tried these polishes?? Which shades are your favorites?? Have you tried any other Jesse's Girl Cosmetics products?? Which ones you recommend??

Benefit Gimme Brow

Hey guys!!!

You guys now by now that I went to Generation Beauty NYC and I got a big goodie bag so I will be talking about products that I got from there for a bit. Benefit was there and we all got the Benefit Gimme Brow. My holy grail brow product, Pixi Natural Brow Duo, was done recently so I decided to give this product a try. I got mine in the shade Medium/Deep.



As you can see it has a very small brush so I thought how am I going to apply the product with this tiny brush?? Surprisingly, even with the tiny brush it was really easy to use and easy to work with. Also this product has fibers and it makes your brows look thick and full.

I use this product in combination with a pencil brow product or on its own depending on the day. Of course when it is with pencil brow product it is more glam brows and on its own you can go either more natural or you can also do glam brows. It is a very buildable product.

When I say glam brows I mean I shape my brow the way I want it to look with the pencil and with the Benefit Gimme Brow I fill it all in. One thing I don't like is that it doesn't hold my crazy brows in place all the time only sometimes. By the end of the day I see one or two brow hairs peeking on my brow bone, but it is not that bad so it doesn't bother me too much.

I love the fact that this product is waterproof and it lasts alllll dayyy!! I have walked out in the rain on my way to work and it stays put. The way I do my brows in the morning it looks exactly the same by the end of the day.

Overall I am in love with this product! This is my second holy grail product for my brows. I can't see myself without this product in my collection so I will be repurchasing this product as soon as I run out! 

Have you guys tried out this product?? What do you think?? Any other Benefit products you think I should try out??

Rosa Novias Special Occasion Dresses For Weddings

Hey guys!!!

I came across the website Rosa Novias AU(http://www.rosanovias.com.au/) and I was intrigued with all the dresses that they have. They have dresses for the bride, bridesmaids, even for the rest of the wedding party(mother of bride, flower girl, etc.) , and so much more! 

I decided to look through the evening dresses because I have a friend who is getting married soon and I needed ideas on what to wear. I am going to show you which ones caught my attention.

While I was looking through I saw that their dresses are custom-made and they were actually a reasonable price. I was surprised because I had seen similar dresses with a higher price other places. I also notice that this website has dresses for all shapes and sizes.

A-line Asymmetrical Chiffon One Shoulder Sleeveless Dresses

A-line Floor-length Chiffon Sweetheart Split Long Mint Blue Chiffon Evening Dress with Crystal
Half-Sleeves V-neck Mermaid Floor-length Dresses
Glorious Chiffon Pink Yarn Occasions Dresses
Mermaid Floor-length Sleeveless Glamorous Occasions Dresses
I love how many different styles they have on this website I am seriously considering getting a special occasion dress next time I have somewhere to go. What do you guys think of the ones I chose??

Disclaimer: *I am getting paid to do this blog post and to include the links, but I don't get paid if you decide to go purchase anything through the links. Everything I said were my opinions 100% and I went through the website myself and chose all the ones I loved so you guys can see what they offer.

NYX Cosmetics Dark Circle Concealer

Hey guys!!!

On a daily basis I don't sleep enough every night and I have some nice bags under my eyes. I have concealers that do cover them, but in my inner corner I always felt needed some extra help. I saw Michelle aka Readysetglamour do a video on covering your dark circles and use the NYX Cosmetics Dark Circle Concealer so I decided to try it out!




This concealer has coconut oil in it to add moisture and to help with it not getting cakey. The salmon tone in the concealer is what helps counteract the darkness under the eyes. I still use another concealer on top for a more fuller coverage.

This product is very blendable and it is not thick at all so it doesn't get into my fine lines. It doesn't get cakey at all even with another concealer on top. I apply this product with my ring finger just because I feel like it applies better that way. My darkness is covered all day and the product doesn't break apart throughout the day. 

Only thing is that I have the shade Medium and if you need this same shade it might take you a while to find. I had to hunt this product down for so long. I didn't even find it in Houston now that I am thinking about it. I actually found it in New York City at Ricky's. 

Overall this is now my holy grail corrector concealer. It is part of my everyday makeup routine. Have you guys tried out this product?? If so, what do you think?? Or do you have another favorite corrector you think I should try?? Also make sure you check out Michelle she is an awesome YouTuber and you won't regret it!

Bobbi Brown Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover

Hey guys!!!

A few months back I got a set from Bobbi Brown with the Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover and the Long-Wear Eye Pencil. I probably won't talk about the eyeliner just because I am on the hunt for my holy grail eyeliner and I don't want to discuss every fail eyeliner I have tried. I was very interested in trying the makeup remover since most of the products I use are long wearing and especially my mascara. 


This will be a quick review. When I started using it I had high hopes for it because well it is Bobbi Brown and I had heard great things about the brand. I guess not all products can be good no matter what brand huh?

It didn't remove my mascara whatsoever and it removed some of my eye makeup not all of it. With my Sephora Collection Makeup Remover I only use 1 cotton round per eye and with this one I used 3 each eye, but my mascara was still there. One good thing was that it didn't burn my eyes.

This product has liquid at the bottom and the oil at the top, but to be honest it feels like I am removing my makeup with water. I prefer the removers that leave an oily residue behind especially for my waterproof mascaras so it can come off my lashes. 

Overall I did not like this product. I prefer the Clinique or the Sephora makeup removers. I only use it to remove swatches now whenever I remember. If you don't wear waterproof mascaras then it should work for you.

Did you guys have issues with removing your makeup with this product like I did? What are some of you guys favorite Bobbi Brown products??

ULTA Raincoat Waterproof Mascara Topcoat

Hey guys!!!

You guys know that I always have to use waterproof mascara because my lashes are straight and will not stay curled if the mascara is not waterproof. I saw the ULTA Raincoat Waterproof Mascara Topcoat at ULTA(duh lol)  so I got it to try it out and hoping I could use my higher end mascara samples. I wasn't sure what to think about this to be honest.



I had read some good reviews on ULTA's website so I was getting some hopes that this would work. I would curl my lashes, apply this right away, and wait for it to dry before I applied my mascara. My lashes felt really hard and it was really hard to apply my mascara.

I tried not letting it dry all the way and then apply my mascara or even apply this and then apply the mascara right away not let it dry at all, but it still didn't work. I also applied my mascara first then this topcoat and it didn't work.

I could never get this product to work. It also expired quickly. It started stinking bad after 3 weeks of trying to get it to work. 

Overall this wasn't worth trying. I was really hoping this would work so I could use non waterproof mascaras. Have you guys tried this?? Did I do something wrong? If so, how do you guys use this product??

Do you guys use a similar product to this that is way better and easy to work with?? What recommendations do you guys have??

Derma e Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask

Hey guys!!!

I had told you guys I would tell you all about this product in my October Favorites, but it slipped my mind. I received sample packets of the Derma e Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask and I loved it so much I went and bought the full size at Whole Foods.



The website says that it deeply detoxifies the skin and defends against harmful pollutants for a healthier complexion. The natural clays and charcoal helps exfoliate dead skin cells and decongests the pores by lifting dirt, oil, and bacteria. 

  • Activated Charcoal - absorbs impurities and detoxifies the skins surface
  • Apricot Seed Powder - exfoliates away dead skin cells
  • Kaolin and Bentonite Clays - absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion
  • Kimarine Wakame - a potassium- and magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals)
  • Bladderwrack - known for its water-binding benefits, this antioxidant and mineral-rich seaweed hydrates and nourishes
Now what do I think about this product? I love it! My favorite charcoal mask used to be the Origins Charcoal Mask, but this has replace it. I only use this once a week on the weekend. When I first used this mask my skin felt very clean especially after a week of wearing a full face of makeup. 

Once it is time to wash it off I wet my hands and rub the product around so it exfoliates my skin. My first experience using this I was impressed. My skin not only felt clean, but also was really soft. To be honest I have not been breaking out as bad as I was before ever since I added this into my routine. I went over a month without breaking out until recently my skin decided to freak out. 

Overall I am in love with this product and I will never look back. Only thing I hate is that it is $19.50 for only 1.7 oz, but I love it too much that I don't mind at all.

Have you guys tried this product??? What do you think?? Have you tried any other products from this brand?? What are your favorites??

November 2015 Favorites

Hey guys!!!

I can't believe it is already December!! I know everyone is saying it, but it is true. A whole year has gone by and it is time for Christmas and New Years soon. *mind blown*  November was a great and sucky month at the same time. I was sick for a good portion of it and something amazing and life changing happened . How was the month of November for you?


  • Too Faced Born This Way Foundation- This has been my go to foundation recently. There has been days that my skin has been dry and this product doesn't cling to my dry patches. It looks natural and doesn't break up when I get oily.
  • Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder- I was actually using the Invisible Loose Setting Powder and it was amazing. I had heard so many people talk about this powder and I am now obsessed. It sets my under eye better than the Invisible Powder. I didn't think it was possible for it to be better.
  • NYX Intense Butter Gloss- I honestly don't use these on everyday basis just because it is high maintenance, but when I am out and about with my mom I get these out. I wear these when I don't have a full face of makeup so I don't have to worry about ruining my makeup. I have been loving the shade Toasted Marshmallow. I even took out the stopper so I can get more product out. 
  • Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow- I am not sure if I have mentioned this shadow in a favorites before, but I have been loving using the shade Bella Ivory. I use the Colourpop shadow in Glow under the brow bone then I top it off with Bella Ivory whenever I am in the mood for a shimmery brow bone. I love the combo.
  • Makeup Geek Pigment- I have been loving the Utopia pigment. This pigment is the best one out of all Makeup Geek's Pigments. You can darken it up with a black base or tone it down with a brown base. It is a mixture of deep brown and antique gold shimmer duochrome glitter.
  • Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow- This month for Epilepsy Awareness Month I have been wearing lots of purple. When I saw SuperAshley127 tutorial with the Caitlin Rose foiled eyeshadow I had to use it. The way she used it was with a black base and when I tried it I fell in love with it! That is the best way to use Caitlin Rose. It pops big time that way.
  •  Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue- I have been using pigments and loose shadows quite a few times this month and this is the best primer to use. I have less fallout with this product! Only thing you have to do one eye at a time.
  • Maybelline FIT Me Concealer- I had repurchased this because I loved it when I first tried it. I used it again and fell in love all over again. It covers my dark circles, subtly highlights my face, and doesn't crease if I set it right away. 
  • BH Cosmetics Itsjudtime Eyeshadow Palette- During the time that I was sick I was not in the mood to be creative with my eye makeup so this was my go to palette during those days. This is my holy grail palette for easy everyday looks or even smokey eyes with a pop of color. I have hit pan on quite a few colors. 
  • Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette- After I felt better I loved experimenting and creating looks with this palette. I could create a neutral to a really bold colorful look. My second holy grail palette. I have noticed my holy grail palettes are limited edition. 
Those are my November Favorites! I honestly had more favorites, but I didn't want to make this post too long. The last two hair products I spoke about in the last two posts are also part of my favorites this month, but they're empty and now in the trash so I couldn't show you guys.

What have you guys been loving this month?? Do we have similar favorites?? You guys discovered any holy grail products this month??

R+Co DEATH VALLEY Dry Shampoo

Hey guys!!!

I know I recently spoke about a hair product so I thought why not talk about another one so I can keep changing it up. There is such a thing as too much makeup talk.........NAH! It will continue, but for now it is time for some hair. 

I received the R+Co DEATH VALLEY Dry Shampoo in my August 2015 Birchbox. To be honest I didn't have high hopes of this product just because I have never heard of this brand ever. The packaging for some reason threw me off  as well. One of the reasons why I love subscription boxes you get to try out things you never heard of before.


I always spray my dry shampoo right before I do my makeup so that way when I am done I can go to the bathroom and brush my hair. At first when I spray you see the white cast, but once I go to brush it out it is gone. It absorbs my oils while I do my makeup and the white cast disappears with it.

I was very impressed with how quickly it absorbs my oils. This reminds me a lot of my two other holy grail dry shampoos, Batiste and Klorane, and now this is a holy grail one. The only thing is that it is $29 and I don't know if I will spend the money on it.

If I spray dry shampoo after I am ready and I need to leave I will brush it out and it still does a great job absorbing my oils. It smells decently, but not the best smell. I tolerated it because it is such a great product. 

Overall I love this product and I will probably repurchase in the future when I feel like splurging. I was blown away with this product. It goes to show you don't judge a book by its cover. Have you guys tried out this product or anything from this brand?? What do you guys recommend??
