Pur Cosmetics Bare It All Foundation | Thoughts & Review

Hi loves! In today’s post I’m going to be giving thoughts on the PÜR Cosmetics Bare It All Foundation. It’s not a new product but it is their newest foundation. I have tried this product multiple times and I finally feel like I can give a thorough review of it. I will give a warning that my review is basically a complaint.

IMG_20170614_121155_309000So this foundation has a lot of claims. The description on the Ulta website says: “This high performance, 12-hour, demi-matte foundation helps to cover imperfections and instantly perfect the skin while helping to correct problem areas over time so you can confidently bare it all. Designed for face and body and formulated with PÜR’s proprietary Energy Complex and Ceretin Complex, this formula renews the look of your skin and goes the distance.” It sounds amazing right? I have had great experiences with PÜR products. I love their eyeshadow palettes and their skincare is amazing! My expectations were literally so high for this product.. Let me tell you why this didn’t work for me.Read More »

May Ipsy Bag

So I need some input. I’m considering leaving Ipsy and trying Birchbox. I’ve had Birchbox in the past and I liked it. The only thing I don’t like are the boxes; I just throw them away. I love Ipsy but I kind of just want something new. Let me know if you have tried Ipsy or Birchbox and which one you like better.

Holy Grail Lippies | My Favorite Colors & Formulas

Hey guys! In today’s post, I will be talking about my holy grail lip products. These are products that I always reach for because I know I’m going to love the color and the wear. Before I talk about any product I have to mention the MAC x Laura Lee collab. Laura is my absolute favorite beauty vlogger and when her MAC lipstick came out I was beyond excited! I am in love with the shade and am so happy I was able to get my hands on it!

Another daily favorite of mine is Tarte‘s Double Duty Lip Sculptor inIMG_20170502_223408_724000 Minx. It’s a warm brick red color; my perfect lip shade! The formula is similar to the Urban Decay cream lipsticks. It’s so smooth and isn’t drying or flaky. The lip gloss also has a smooth non sticky formula. Imalso a fan of the NYX Butter Glosses. Angel Food Cake is a beautiful pink shade close to my natural lip color. Now let’s throw it back a little bit with an Urban Decay classic..1993. This color is so 90s it’s ridiculous. It somehow manages to be Rachel Green but still Gwen Stefani in her No Doubt era. Read More »

April Favorites and Empties

Why are the months going by so fast? I seriously need things to slow down! The past couple of months, I have been steering away from my holy grail products and trying out new things. I’m really enjoying playing around in my makeup collection. Now that Spring is here, and it’s getting hotter outside, I’m starting to wear less makeup. I am not about to look like a melting wax figure. I really need to do a couple posts about my foundation routine and review the one I’m using..So look out for those soon!

I’ll begin by saying if I’m not wearing a lot of makeup, I won’t spendIMG_20170424_233251_244000 a lot of time taking it off. Most of the time, my skincare routine consists of makeup wipes, micellar water and facial spray. I’ve been liking the Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Micellar Water. It feels light and has a very mild scent. I will say that it doesn’t completely sink in like other Micellar waters so I can still feel it. For applying foundation, my Beauty Blender has fallen second to my Mikasa Beauty Lemon Drop sponge. It is literally so soft and I love the way it blends my makeup. I’ve also been loving the Benefit Contour Brush for my bronzer. It’s also good for setting with face powder. Morning and night, I’ve been using the Hempz lip balm; and also throughout the day. It s thicker than a chap stick but not as messy as a lip gloss.

Everyday Face | Daily Makeup Routine

Another day, another makeup routine! In today’s post, I’ll be showing you what I usually do on an everyday basis. This is the type of makeup I would wear to work or when I’m out all day. I can easily change this look with eyeliner, lashes and a different shade of lipstick to make it more dramatic for nighttime.

IMG_20170414_182246_651000I always have to start off with a primer. For today I chose my trusty Smashbox photo finish primer. This helps control the oil on my skin and give me a more smooth base. I will then go in with Benefit‘s Dew the Hoola liquid bronzer. A lot of people hate this product and I don’t know why! I put this all over my face just to make it look like my face has some sun. [My face is like 2 shades lighter than my body btw.] Next I will use Tarte shape tape under my eyes and to highlight, as well as cover where I need to. This concealer is amazing and requires no unnecessary baking. Although sometimes I will dust a tiny bit of Smooth Operator under my eyes to ensure IMG_20170414_182034_517000less creasing. I will finish my face by adding my Tarte Double Duty foundation powder. I don’t get too shiny and it doesn’t wear off easily at all. It’s easily buildable and full coverage.
