August Ipsy Bag Reveal: The GREAT and Not So Much

Image
**Affiliate Link** Just in the nick of time again!!  Starlooks- Luxe Looks Long Wear Eyeliner  Pen This is a felt-tipped pen eyeliner that claims to be so universal that you can wear it all day and all night. I'm not such a huge fan of eyeliners in my Ipsy bags just because we get sooo many. I am also not such a huge fan of liquid liners because I don't like the way they look. I like more of a matte look with my liners. Little tip- if you are like me and like the matte finish, you can add a little powder on top of this to matte it out but it does take a little extra time. You can get 20% by using the code IPSY. OFRA Cosmetics- Lip Liner I got this in the color Wine. Ahhh I seriously love this liner. It applies super smoothly and makes any lip look look awesome! You can add it under a nude gloss or you can control a sexy fall wine lipstick. I highly recommended this liner! Ipsy is offering a great discount...40% off by using the code OFRALOVESIPSY JUARA Sk

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents Inspired by Jewelry

**May Contain Press Samples** So, I made it through 3 posts this month.... that's pretty good. Next month's theme is pets- Let's see what I come up with! I do have a few interesting pets in my household and hopefully I can incorporate them into this theme. For this design, I decided to have my jewelry design be THE most decorated item in the world. THE Crown Jewels. Sooo my design isn't exactly like the Crown Jewels but that's the idea. I did little crown designs and then added my own jewels. First I used KB Shimmer Sun & Games  to create the crowns and then I decorated them with loose gems. I also used This awesome purple from the new Focus and Flair Collection from Zoya. It is a Royal Purple to go with the theme. I kind of am in love with the color, a lot! Colors Used: KB Shimmer- Sun & Games Zoya- Lidia What do you think of this design? What do you think of these colors? I am super excited to show you the rest of this collection n

Vita Liberata 2-3 Week Tan and a Little Present!!

Image
**Press Sample** Hello all!! I have a great transition product to show everyone today. The weather is starting to cool down, well at least out here it's starting to cool down. Everyone is starting back at school so that means Fall is inevitably coming. That means our natural sun kissed tan is slowly fading. I was recently sent the Vita Liberata 2-3 Week Tan to try out and let me tell you, this is an awesome product. So, I used 2 applications of it to get the best application. This is in the shade Medium and for me, since it's summer, I'm a little darker so two applications of this was needed.   I had a beautiful golden tan that actually lasted about 2 weeks for me. I work out every day so my constant sweating had a lot to do with the wear of this product so I am sure those of you who are not as active will have better wear. The best part about this product is it fades perfectly. There was no patchiness or gross streaking you get with this. It just fade

Temporary Body Tattoos...What Do You Think?

Image
**Press Gift** These have been the hot thing this summer and honestly I have been having a hard time getting into it. I love ALL accessories but this is an accessory that you put on your body and it stays on for a couple of days. It's like a bracelet that you keep on for a couple of days.  I got a sheet of gold and silver temporary tattoos with 5 different designs on it. There are two different sized feathers, one bow, a bunches of roses and a butterfly. I have seen these in a variety of other designs in varying in sizes from leg bands to finger tattoos.   These applied really easily. Just cut out the design that you want to use. Remove the plastic film and place it face down on your skin. Dampen a cloth or paper towel. Make sure it's not too wet otherwise it will be a big mess! Leave it pressed on your skin for about 30 seconds and then move the paper. Voila!! There you have it! Gorgeous! I used the rosebuds becuase I think they are small and dainty. I have g

SinfulColors Back to School Collection Part 3 and Wrap Up

Image
**Press Samples** I am wrapping up the last of my Back to School installments for the SinfulColors Collection. I have loved all of the colors I got so hard! Like, I will be rocking all these far into the season because they are all so versatile. Feel The Vibe This is such a great color for back to school. This could be used as a transition color or a fall bright. This is a lovely bright orange creme that can be used by itself or with other colors as seen below. I used three coats with mine just to cover everything up and for a nice bright look. I did a little angled tip with Daredevil to spice it up. Truth or Lavendare This is a true lavender in the demi-matte finish that is on that limited edition hot list right now. I love how smooth these apply and how nicely they dry. There is no clumping and these are as close to a one-coater as you can get. I used Daredevil and Pink Break to add some flares. I actually did this design w
