Out with the old, in with the new!

This is a really quick update, as some of you might know, I am totally rebuilding my makeup collection.
In the past several months i've used up numerous amount of products. I'm looking forward to trying new brands of makeup and new products! There is so many products I have yet to try, so please tell me your products must haves , and I will definitely check them out! I like high and low end makeup, you can find amazing products at the drugstore. Especially since the past year so many companies such as Revlon , Covergirl and L'oreal have come out with really good products!
I am also on the search for a new way to organize my makeup collection!
So please don't forget to give me your recommendations on products you've been enjoying lately!! xxx

Products I Regret Buying

There aren't a lot of products that I regret buying and which I still own. I usually throw them out as soon as I see that i'm not using them. Also recently I've thrown a lot of my makeup away. I did a huge clean-up, and i'm now slowly re-building my collection. So here they are!

First product that i'm extremely dissapointed with it MAC's beauty powder in Blush of Youth which came out with the Rose Romance collection in 2009 (I believe). I remember seeing a preview of the Rose Romance collection on Temptalia and I authomatically fell in love with the collection. I thought the rose print was really pretty, which it is. But when I went in the Mac store I swatched it and decided not to get it because of the lack of pigmentation. So when I went at a CCO I saw it there and decided to get it without swatching it, which was a bad idea. I know i'm not the first person to mention how horribly pigmented this product is. I can't even swatch it , it's just horrible. It almost feels like wax/plastic when you try to swatch it. Overall i'd give this product 1/10, because of the beautiful packaging but thats all. Total waste of money.
Another blush that I regret buying is Maybelline Mineral Power blush. This is suppose to give you a "Healthy" glow, and luminous color to your skin. Mmmmh, not so much. This is super chalky I feel like i'm applying crumbled chalk on my skin, with tons of shimmers. Very bad. Also after a couple hours of wearing it I ended up looking like a blotchy clown. It looked H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E. Nothing but hate towards this product. Overall i'd give this product a 2/10 for the pigmentation and color.

It's extremely rare that I wouldn't recommend a product by Benefit. I own and love a lot of their products. This is actually the first makeup brand that my mom bought me when I started wearing  a little makeup back in 6th grade. Haha, but this lipgloss i'm just not feeling it at all. I find it smells really discusting and after applying it on your lips the taste gets in your mouth no matter how little amount you apply on. Also it just doesn't look right on my lips , it actually transfers blue which isn't very appealing. Overall i'd still give this product a 4/10 for it's original name , and texture.

Amazing package, and great lasting power. Benetint by Benefit is the blush with the longest lasting power I own. I've been reaching for it a lot this past two weeks especially for school. I find it looks really great with pale skin, and since spring has been pretty dull so far i haven't gotten much of a tan yet. Overall great multi-use product also looks very beautiful as a lipstain. The only down side to this product is that it doesnt seem to show up on darker skin tones.

I also has it in travel size it comes with a clear gloss which very pretty applied on top of the stain. Great option for on the go!

March Favorites

Here are a few products that definitly stood out for me , and are worth the mention!
So first you may reconize the Essie polish in Set In Stones, i've been absolutely loving it , and wore it like cray cray! 
Then I have a mini size of the MAC cleanse off oil , I decided to get this in a travel size because I wanted to see how my skin would to react to it. And o-m-g!! it's my new found love. I used to use makeup removing wipes , but they're not even comparable to the cleanse off oil. It removes every little bit of your makeup!
This past month i've really been focusing on getting my skin back on track! 
The winter has been really harsh for my skin ,which made it really dry. 
I apply my La Roche-Posay Hydreane Legere every morning, and at night i switch it up with my Spectro cream. I also would mix it in my foundation sometimes which gave a lighter, and more natural finish to my skin. 
Another new discover of mine was eye cream. Specifically the ANEWclinical Eye lift. I would only apply eye cream once in a while, but since i've been using it daily i've seen a huge difference in my under eye area. It's alot softer and it helped me with my dark circles. The cool thing about this about this specific one is that the orange half you see is actually a Jelly consistency, and it's for your eye lids, and under you have the regular eye cream that I apply underneath my eyes.

Spring Time Lippies!

Sorry i've been MIA for the past week , i've just been really busy , tired , and uninspired i guess.
But today i'm comming to you guys with my favorite spring lippies! 
I've found myself wearing very minimal makeup this past month. I've been really enjoying the bare face look, so it's reflecting a lot in my makeup picks!
Sheer lipstick are my go to products. A lil mascara , lipbalm and a lil tint of color ont the lips & i'm out the door! hihi... I've really been liking wearing nudes/corals/pinks so here's the following 3 products i've been using most often. 

The first Lip product i've been using alot is Dior's Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm, yes indeed the name is very long! I wouldn't call this a lipstick it deifinetly has more of a balm consistency and leave a sheer wash of pinkish/coral color on your lips. This is easy for on the go people , does not required you using a mirror ,or, lip pencil any thing like that which is great! This product is great for people who are outdoors and exposed to the sun a lot since it contains SPF 10 in it. Overall i've found myself using this alot more during spring/summer rather than winter because of it texture and purpose , it's super light and when you wear this you almost forget you have any sort of lip products on your lips! I love it , it's a must for me.

On to the next, this is my ultimate favorite drugstore find! The revlon LipBurst Butters are worth a try! I haven't heard a single bad thing about these balms. The one i'm showing you today in a nudy peache color , called Creme Brulee. This was my most warn color in March. The lasting power is great for these, and I really don't know what else to say beside they're uh-maz-ing! Also this specific color goes with whatever I im wearing. So each time i'm running out of time and I don't know what lip color to wear I gravitate towards this one, that's why I keep it in my school bag! Its super creamy and has a great lasting power! 

Then last but not least there's Sweet Sunrise by MAC which is a Lustre, So again it's very sheer on the lips. This lipstick was unfortunetly limited edition it came out with the Naturally collection this winter, but you might be able to find it at your local CCO. I know MAC has tons of other nudes like this so you might find one that is similar (aka creme de nude ,except is it more opact). This color also has hints of peach in it so it doesnt make you look so deadly compared to most nudes. Another favorite of mine for this time of the year, I cant wait to wear this when ill have more of a tan! 

So this concludes my post hope you enjoyed. And if you have any questions regarding the products I mentioned ask me in the comments below. Thank you xx
