Review: Nivea Lip Butters

Hi! As you know I love the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments and I've been looking for a cheaper replacement. I decided to try these. I got two flavors raspberry rose and caramel cream kiss. This is what they look like.

The raspberry rose smells like raspberry crystal light. The caramel cream doesn't smell like caramel to me but it doesn't smell bad. These are super moisturizing for your lips. These are my new lip favorite! In comparison to my EOS lip balm these keep my lips moisturized longer. My EOS I have to constantly reapply because once they are off my lips my lips start to dry out. These I apply and I'm good for hours or even the day depending on what I'm doing. They don't add any color to your lips which is one thing I do like the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments for. The do give a white cast to your lips if you apply too much. The other negative is you have to apply with your fingers which explains the current state of mine lol. I would like these a lot better if that wasn't the case. I always carry my hand sanitizer with if I know I'm going to be using this. They do have sticks but I'm not sure if it's the same formula. I know these being lip butters is a heavier formula than some lip balms. Would I buy these again? YES! I'm already trying to get my hands on the Vanilla Macadamia one. The formula for these are just awesome! So if you can head to Ulta pick these up now! Thank you for reading and I hope you guys enjoyed this review! I'll have lots more posts and reviews up soon!

7 Days Of Vice 2! Tutorial#4

Hi! I tried not to do the typical thing with this tutorial and put Betrayal in the crease so I instead I used it as my highlight. I hope you guys like this tutorial and I will have more up soon!
First I applied Rewind into my crease and Voodoo on my lid.
Next I applied Lovesick into my crease and outer v and blended it out. I applied Betrayal as my inner corner highlight that really pops. I used Dope as my brow highlight though. To finish off the eyes I applied Lovesick along my lower lashline and my Perversion pencil along my upper lashline and my lower waterline. For mascara I used Benefit Bad Gal mascara. The eyes are done and on to the rest of the face!
For the rest of the face I used my Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation and my MAC Veluxe Pencil in Deep Brunette for my brows. I also used my Ulta concealer to clean up under the eyes. I applied MAC Well Dressed as my blush. I used my Milani Lip Flash in Starflash with my Smashbox light pink Burlesque gloss on top.

 It's a really easy look but super dramatic. I still have 3 more tutorials for this palette. After that I will be doing some tutorials using my Naked 3 palette and my Sigma Enlight palette. I also will have lots of reviews up. Can't forget it is already almost time for a Project Pan update! I hope you guys liked this and thanks for reading!

Review: NYX Butter Lipsticks

Hi! Today I am reviewing the fairly new NYX Butter Lipsticks. I only bought one color because the other one I wanted was sold out. I got the color Fun Size and this is what that looks like.

I bought it hoping it would be like my wonderful Crème Brulee butter gloss but sadly it's not quite the same. If I forget my lip balm I can count on my Creme Brulee gloss to really moisturize my lips. This I don't feel the same way about. If you look at the picture of it applied my lips definitely don't look dry and they do feel moisturized but the feel does not last as long as the gloss. Don't get me wrong the lipstick is creamy. It really reminds me of some of my MAC lipsticks. The main reason I bought this shade was looking for a dupe to my MAC Hue lipstick. This isn't a dupe sadly but I do think this is a great nude. They have pretty good pigmentation but I feel the staying power of these is only ok. I can feel that they don't last long while I'm at work. However would I buy this again? No I personally probably would not knowing what I know. I feel like this lipstick is no better than my MAC Hue lipstick which is a glaze finish so it's kinda similar. But I definitely don't think the lipstick isn't bad it's just not quite what I wanted. So overall I think these lipsticks are good for the price but there are better options if you are willing to splurge. I was really interested in one of the darker shades. It had amazing pigmentation and was a pretty color so I would go check them out. I hope you guys enjoyed this review and thank you for reading!

Update: We just got some new shades at my Ulta and I will be definitely be buying more. I can do an updated review on the new colors I get once we put them on the shelf.

Going Blonde!

Hi! I started a post like this last year and it never went anywhere because then I went dark. But I think I'm ready to go blonde. I wanted to share with you guys how I get there. This is going to be a challenge because I'm starting from red which is the hardest color to remove. I decided that I wanted to go to as close to my natural color as I can. My current color is darker than my natural color and it has a red tint. This picture is from my lastest tutorial but it shows the color.

I'm not sure where I'm going to go from here. I did this the beginning of the month so by now it has faded some and the red is disappearing. I can either try to neutralize the red or get highlights. I think I would like to get rid of more of the red but getting some blonde in my hair is a temptation. I honestly could do both but I would like to stick with doing this slowly. Nothing about bleach is good for your hair but if you take the process more gradually it is definitely better for your hair. Another option I have considered is letting the color in my hair grow out. My natural hair color is perfect lowlight color. I would love to grow out my natural color and then go blonde but that would seriously take FOREVER. I definitely want to try to not color it for awhile and see how long I can try to grow this color out. I hate this color now so it probably won't be long. So stay tuned and I will update you guys next time I do something with the color and what I decided to do. Thank you for reading!

7 Days Of Vice 2! Tutorial#3

Hi! Continuing on with this series here is my next look. Let's get started! 

First I applied Dope all over the lid and Rewind very lightly into the crease. 

Next I applied my Perversion pencil liner to my upper lashline and my LSD pencil liner to my lower lashline.

To finish the eyes I applied Prank on top of LSD and a little bit of Lovesick on top of my Perversion pencil. I applied two coats of my Benefit They're Real mascara. The eyes are done!

For the rest of the face I applied my MAC Well Dress blush and MAC Angel for lipstick. I believe I'm wearing my CoverGirl 3in1 foundation.

7 Days Of Vice 2! Tutorial#2

Hi! I decided to do a more neutral look with my Vice 2 palette. Let's go ahead and get started!
First I applied Habit on my lid but I applied Ambush very lightly to the outer third.
Next I applied Rewind lightly above and into my crease.
Next I applied Smokeout into my outer v and blending it into my crease. I also applied Dope as my inner corner and brow highlight. I also applied Radar on my lowerlashline
To finish off the eyes I applied my UD Perversion Pencil Liner and winged it out. I also applied it to my upper and lower waterline. I need to get me some gel liner. I like a softer look than liquid liner. I applied one coat of my Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara and one coat of my Benefit They're Real mascara.

To finish the face I used MAC Well Dressed Blush. I also cleaned up and highlighted under my eyes with my Ulta Double Duty Concealer. I used my CoverGirl 3in1 Foundation and I set everything with my ELF HD Powder. For my lips I applied MAC Angel and my Ulta lip gloss in #18. And that is the finished look!

I love this look! It's really pretty for being so easy. I hope you guys liked this post! Thank you for reading!

7 Days of Vice 2! Tutorial#1

Hi! So I'm trying a new series where I do 7 brand new tutorials using the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette. As you guys know I own quite a few neutral palettes because honestly I'm a sucker for an awesome neutral palette. So the Vice 2 palette was a tough buy for me because it's got quite a few colors. I love color but on a day to day basis. I'm not bold enough to wearing them usually. I'm trying to make myself branch out more. I'm very comfortable wearing purple though. Anyways I really want to play with this palette more. Let's go ahead and get started!

So to get started I applied Rewind and Habit VERY lightly into and above my crease.

Next I applied X-Rated on the inner third of my lid and inner crease.
Next I applied Coax to the rest of my lid. If I had to redo this tutorial I would apply NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk because this pink did not pop quite as much as I wanted.
Next I applied Voodoo into my crease.

Next I applied Love sick very lightly into my outer v to give some definition. I also applied my Sephora Flashy Liner Pencil in Silver and applied Shellshock on top of it.
To finish the eyes I applied my Perversion Pencil Liner and winged it out, I also decided this needed some glitter. So I applied some of my Sparklicity Powder. Lastly I applied one coat of my Smashbox Brightening mascara and one coat Benefit They're Real mascara.

For the rest of the face I applied my Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation (this will explain my bad blush application in a minute). I applied MAC Well Dressed Blush and ELF HD Powder to set everything. For my lips I wanted something pink nude but I applied MAC Angel and it was a little too pink. I applied Smashbox Burlesque light pink gloss.

I hope you guys like this tutorial I will have another one up soon. Actually 6 more of these up sort of soon lol. Also I'm sorry the pictures have been weird. If you click on the picture and it comes up bigger than it's fine but for some reason when it's small it looks weird. Thank you for reading!

Review: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer

Hi! I promised lots of reviews coming up and this is the first. I've been really wanting to give this a shot. It's raved about a ton on youtube and I now see why. This product is amazing! First let's talk about packing. Here is a picture of it.

And a swatch of it on my hand...
If you know me you know I'm not really a fan of products you have to twist up. But the little applicator on the end is so soft. It's like a fuzzy sponge. I wanted mine in the Fair shade but they were sold out so I got the Brightener shade. I have to say I'm glad I did. I don't have bad undereye circles but I like it to look bright and light. This really helps brighten it up. It blends in PERFECTLY. It's amazing. When this product sets it's not going anywhere. It has amazing staying power which we all can agree is awesome. I see what the fuss was about because this stuff is great. It also claims to be a treatment for undereye circles. Again I don't have noticeable dark circles really but I did have some undereye puffness and I feel like this certainly helped. So as a concealer is amazing but as a treatment I feel like I can't really answer. Now on to my pet peeve with this product. Besides the twist up thing being annoying the amount of product for the price just doesn't really seem fair. I believe this was about $8.99 at my Ulta and you get a whopping 0.2 fl.oz. Maybe it's just me but I would like to see a little more. I know it's concealer and a little goes along way but this I feel like will run out rather quickly because of the packaging. I feel like the sponge probably soaks up quite a bit of product. I also heard that when you get down to the bottom it looks like you have more product but you can't get any more out. Would I repurchase this though? I think so. I really like this but again I feel like the price is a little bit of a rip off. I can't complain too much though because $8.99 doesn't sound too bad to when you compare it to some high end concealers and their prices. If your curious about this product I would recommend trying this out. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised(: Thank you for reading! Watch for more reviews and stuff soon(:

Project Pan FOTD#6 1/10/14

Hi! So what do you do when it's freezing rain outside and you are a procrastinator? Play with makeup of course lol! Sure I have other things to do like my laundry haunting me from the corner but playing with my makeup sounded more fun. I was looking at my project pan stuff thinking that I really want to make some even better progress by my next update. So I was looking at products I haven't used really. Of course these 9 Bare Mineral eyeshadows caught my eye. Out of everything in my project pan I want those gone the most. I'm already sick of them and I've used them a ton. I decided to do a look with Bon Bon (the only color I haven't really used). So this is my project pan FOTD!

Foundation: L'Oreal Lumi Foundation
Eyeshadows: Bare Minerals Cocoa, Bare Minerals Bon Bon, MAC Yogurt, and L'Oreal Infallible Iced Latte Eyeshadows
Eyeliner: UD Perversion Pencil Liner
Mascara: Benefit They're Real
Concealer: Ulta Double Duty Concealer
Blush: MAC Well Dressed
Highlighter: Burlesque Shimmer
Setting Powder: ELF HD Powder
Brows: Rimmel Brow Pencil
Lips: MAC Angel Lipstick and Smashbox Burlesque light pink gloss
I've said this before and I'll say it again but Bon Bon is a super pretty color. It's a very dark brown with green glitter. Kind of like MAC Club. Anyways I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I'll have more stuff up soon! Thank you for reading!

What kind of Dry Shampoo....

Hi! So I'm working on a very long post/review of dry shampoos. I thought I had tried a lot but not really. I was wondering what brands you guys would like me to test out. Here is a list of ones I have tried and will be reviewing.
Tigi Rockaholic
Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Dry Shampoo
Beyond The Zone
So I'm thinking I'll try Tresemme and Garnier has one people have raved about. Not sure how I feel about trying Suave or Dove because I haven't really heard good things about either. I was also thinking about trying Not Your Mother's, Oscar Blandi, and also maybe Kenra. Please leave any suggestions below!(:

What I Got For Christmas!

Hi! I thought I would share what I got for Christmas this year.  I personally love these types of videos and posts. This was going to be a video but it seems like it's never a good time to film. Lets go ahead and get started!  

First I'll start with clothes.  Pretty much everything is from Maurices. First is this pretty plaid shirt. Its black,  white,  and pink.  Its kinda hi-low in the back. Its super comfy.
Next is this orange and purple plaid shirt.  Its got little ruffles around the neckline. You can see them in the picture.  This is almost like a v neck button up shirt.

Next I got two of this sequins tank. One is a pretty purple and the other one is white.  I love these!

I also got this fantastic cardigan wrap. Its mostly black with a few white stripes. I saw this on their website and needed it! 

This might be the only Christmas present I'm a little unhappy with.  Its this cute grey shimmer sweater. Its definitely cute and comfy. But since the last time I wore it it seems like it stretched out. I guess I'll see next time I wear it. 

I love this grey cardigan I got. Its a great basic.
I got this BEAUTIFUL cream sheer shirt. Its got pretty rhinestone buttons and little studs around the collar. Its just so pretty on.

Another great basic is this black cardigan.  

I also wanted this grey glittery skull shirt. Great for those casual days.
I also got 4 camis. I got 2 crinkle ones in white and navy.  I got 2 plain ones in white and cobalt blue. 

Another item I really wanted was this cardigan wrap.  Its grey with white and teal stripes.  It also has a hood.

I also got this Bethany Mota shirt. I'm thinking these were free with any Bethany Mota stuff. It's just a comfy crop top.

Which leads to the first item from Aeropostale. I got this amazing Bethany Mota peacoat. Its longer than I could get in the picture. Plus this picture came out super weird. But it's a really nice black peacoat.

I also got this scarf from my grandma. She made it and I really like it.

That is it for the clothes.  Next is my mass amount of bath and body works stuff. First I got some candles. I got Spiced Apple Toddy, Champagne Toast, and Merry Cookie. I actually got two Champagne Toasts. One is in the cute snowman which I also got. 

Next I got this big Red Velvet Cupcake candle. It smells amazing! 

My dad got me this awesome tote that has this stuff in it. It came with an Aromatherapy Stress Relief Eucalyptus Spearmint body wash, Fresh Sparkling Snow foam hand soap, small Forever Red perfume, Forever Midnight body cream, Japanese Cherry Blossom, and Champagne Toast candle.

I also got 4 fragrance mists. I got Warm Vanilla Sugar, Paris Amour, Japanese Cherry Blossom, and Twilight Woods. Some of my favorites:-)

I also got this Velvet Sugar shimmer spray and small Twilight Woods shower gel.

I also got 5 little hand sanitizers. I got Midnight Pomegranate, Caribbean Escape, Warm Vanilla Sugar, Paris Amour, and Island Margarita. And kinda moving on to makeup I got the UD Naked 3 palette.
Before I continue with the makeup I also got 6 fragrance sprays from Victoria's Secret. The first 3 are Such A Flirt, Mango Temptation, and Pure Seduction. 
Next 3 are Endless Love, Strawberries and Champagne, and Love Spell.
This is all the makeup items I got. I got the Maybelline Lash Stiletto, Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer, Maybelline Lipstick in 5th ave Fuchsia, NYX Butter Lipstick in Fun Size, Maybelline Clean Express Makeup Remover Gel, CoverGirl Outlast 3-1 Foundation, Real Techniques Blush Brush, Ulta Baked Eyeshadow in Covet, and Ulta blush in Flush. Expect reviews on this stuff coming up!(;
This is the rest of the "beauty" stuff I got. I bought the Batiste Wild Party Trio and loved it so much I got the Wild full sized one with a gift card. I also got these two Nivea Lip Butters in Raspberry Rose and Caramel Cream Kiss which so far have been AMAZING!
Now on to accessories! I got this adorable hat at Forever 21 and the bracelets too. I did get the rose gold one with rhinestones and glitter at Charming Charlies though.
Lastly I got this awesome new wallet from Charming Charlies. I desperately needed one and my bf actually picked this out which makes it even more special. I also forgot to include this in my BBW pictures but my grandma also got me this Pink Chiffon lotion. It smells amazing!
And I think that is it. There are a few little things that I left out. I also will be getting the Sigma Enlight palette I just haven't ordered it yet. I do have some left over Christmas money to use it get it. Hope you guys got everything you wanted and had an amazing Christmas/holidays. I know I did. I was so excited because (not to brag but) I'm pretty good at picking out gifts. So I was super excited for my family to open the gifts I got them. Feel free to share what you got below in the comments! Again I will have lots of reviews up for these products I just need some time to test them out more!
Thank you for reading!
