Lancôme Gift Set Unboxing

feature-box

Lancôme is one of my favorite brands to buy my makeup from. As I was looking through their makeup the other day I found a box full of things I loved! It was just $40 for all of those products (four of them full size)! I had purchased the lip crayon for $23 in the same shade about a day ago so I thought buying this gift set would be a much better deal instead of just buying one lip crayon!

I was super excited to buy this! Before even unboxing it I instantly fell in love with all of the colors! I already loved the lip crayon from before so I am sure I will love everything else once I use them… can’t wait!

I loved the bag before I even opened the box! When I opened it and pulled out the bag I fell in love with it even more!

The top of the bag is a really pretty soft dirty pink color… which I love so much! All over the pink part (not sure if you can see) is full of the tiniest dots which make the bag sparkle and glow! It kind of makes the top metallic looking but not a harsh metallic look. If you look closely at the picture above you may able to tell how it has a glow to it. The material for the pink part is a soft suede fabric which makes this makeup bag ten times better. The rest of the bag and the inside is like a normal makeup bag material (don’t really know how to explain it). On the front there is also a drawstring looking design for extra cuteness! I am obsessed with this makeup bag!

Here is what the bag looks like opened. It also has a zipper of course but it’s a little hard to tell in this picture.

Here are all of the products! There is a blush palette, brush, two eyeshadows, a lip crayon, and a mascara. The only product that isn’t full sized is the mascara.

The first product in the makeup bag is the lip crayon and it is my favorite! I love the nude color! It is like a very light tan color which I think goes really well with my skin tone. It is a full size in the shade ‘200 Nothing to Wear’. It looks like I have nothing on when I wear this color but it does make my lips look very nice! I like to wear a lip balm (not too much) before I wear this because it is matte and a nude matte can make your lips look very dry. I also love how it is a lip crayon rather than just like a normal lipstick. I am definitely going to be wearing this all the time… obsessed!

(I have also done a similar review on this product in my other post Cute Things I Bought Today if you like you can check that out!)

The next product I got is this beautiful blush palette with the softest brush! This blush palette is in the shade ‘126 Nectar Lace’ and it is full size!  The first part is for contouring. The color is a soft brown color which I think will match my skin tone nicely. It also has a slight glow to it.The blush is this beautiful rose gold color with shimmer which gives it a very pretty glow! It also has a highlighter as well which also has a great glow! The highlighter is like a very like gold color. All of these colors go very nicely together in this palette! I love it! I will definitely try it out in a makeup look and share how it is!

Next I got two very nice eyeshadow shades… both full size! As well as a mascara which is a sample size but I’m sure it will last me a while! I love both eyeshadows because they are colors which I like to use for my everyday look. The first color is this very nice light cream color with shimmer to give it glow. It is in the shade ‘Filigree’. The other shade is called ‘Mannequin’ which is also a shimmer shade. It is a really pretty neutral brown color perfect for an everyday look. Both of the eyeshadows have great pigment! The mascara is called ‘Hypnose Drama’. When I opened it I noticed it has a very nice brush. I really love the ‘Hypnose Doll Lashes’ from Lancôme (You can check out that review here The Mascara I’ve been Loving ) so I’m sure this one will be nice too! I will definitely try it out and review it! I’ll compare both mascaras to see which one I like more.

I will definitely be doing a makeup look with all of these products very soon! Thank you for reading!

Cute Things I Bought Today

mini-haul

Today I went to the mall after a long time with my mom. I love shopping with her because we always find lots of cute things together. Today we found a bunch of things together that I instantly loved the second I saw them!

The first thing which I saw  was a super cute Betsey Johnson beanie. I love the color because it’s a really nice soft gray. When I picked it up I fell in love with it more because it is the softest! The top on the outside and inside is fuzzy so it makes it super soft! Between the fuzz it has little sparkles which makes it super cute! The bottom has a tighter knit so it fits very nicely when you wear it. There is a super cute silver heart on the left with Betsey Johnson written on it.  Also love how it’s a bobble hat! It makes the beanie even more cute! I found this beanie at Macy’s. It originally says it’s $24 but I got it on sale for $12. Love this beanie so much… obsessed!

The next thing I fell in love with is a nude color design matte lip crayon from Lancôme. I had to get this one because I just loved the color so much. You can never have too many nude shades! This one is in the shade ‘200 Nothing to Wear’ and the price was $23. It does kind of look like you don’t have anything on but at the same time it makes your lips look really nice. The texture is a nice light weight matte. It won’t look the best on dry lips because the texture of this lip crayon isn’t a creamy matte. I like to wear a lip balm and leave it on my lips for a bit while I do the rest of my makeup and then apply the lip crayon at the end. I also think this color would look nice with a very soft light brown lip liner. I love how it’s easy to carry around and keep in your purse. I know I’ll definitely will be wearing this color all the time and taking it everywhere with me! I’m really obsessed with this nude color!

When I went to pay for the these two items I saw the jewelry section haha. I saw a whole bunch of chokers that were also on sale! I am super obsessed with chokers so seeing all the chokers and the sale sign… I just couldn’t resist!

package-choker

This one is a really cute gold choker with different charms. This choker is INC from Macy’s and it is normally $24 but I got it for $13. It has shiny silver grayish bead which sparkle along the front… so  cute! There is a bead in the back as well. The first charm I think is a crescent moon. The second charm I believe is a tooth charm and the third one is a wish bone charm. Every other charm between is a plain circle one. I think the charms make the choker look different which I really like. I really love how you can wear this choker by pulling on the gold chain to make it smaller or bigger. Once you wear the choker and tighten it, the necklace chain hangs from the side. I think that’s cute… and different! I’ll definitely show the outfit I wear this choker with soon! Super excited!

I got another choker as well but this is more of a basic one. I really have been looking for one like this and finally found one I liked! It is from the same place as the other choker and was the same price as well. It is a black bow tie choker with gold on the bottom. I think the gold bottom makes it much more nicer. It’s just so cute… I love it! Cant wait to wear this one!

Touch of Spice Maybelline Lipstick

lipppp

One of my favorite brands that you can find at the drugstore is Maybelline. I just love the lipsticks from Maybelline! About a week ago I was looking through their lipsticks and I found this lipstick in the shade ‘Touch of Spice 660’. It looked very pretty so I decided to buy it (about $9 ) and give it a try. When I tried it I instantly fell in love with it! The color is a really nice brick color red which is so pretty! I feel like the shade isn’t too dark or too light. I also really love the texture because it is a nice creamy matte! In my opinion the Maybelline lipsticks also smell nice. I know I will be wearing this color all the time now! Thanks for reading! Also what lip colors have you been wearing all the time?!

Michael Kors Sneakers

shoe

Recently I saw these Michael Kors sneakers and I decided to try them on. I ended up really liking them! Normally these sneakers are $135 dollars but that day they were on sale for $59… that was when I knew I had to buy them! I really like the gray color but I also love the metallic on the sides!  I think the white on the bottom and the metallic silver really bring out the shoe. It also has Michael Kors written all over the sneaker which is nice. The sneaker’s texture is more of a thicker fabric which I think is suitable during the winter cold weather. I can’t wait to start wearing them! Thanks for reading!

*Update* I got to wear them for the first time today and they are super comfortable! I just want to wear them all the time! I love them so much!

My Simple Everyday Look

full-makeuo-baf

I love wearing makeup everyday but wearing full makeup everyday is just time consuming and not the best for your skin. I thought I would share what I have been using at the moment for my simple everyday look!

The first thing that I do is moisturize my face. I like to use the Bienfait Multi-vital moisturizer from Lancôme. It really does moisturize my face and has sunscreen SPF 30 which is great! Since I’m not using foundation moisturizing will keep my face from looking dull. I also do really love how it smells. It is a bit pricey about $60 but I think it’s worth it.

At the moment I like to use the NYX concealer. I haven’t been using this one for long enough to say that I love it but I do think it is very nice! I use the shade 04 Beige. It has good coverage but I found that it is a little dry. Since my skin gets quite dry during the winter I have to moisturize before applying it otherwise it will look very dry. I just apply it wherever I need to then blend with a damp beauty blender and then set it with some powder! Overall though I feel like it is a great concealer if your looking for one that isn’t expensive since it’s about $5.

concelaer

For bronzer I have been using the Natural Bronzer from Rimmel. I love the color and also love how it is matte! I like using the shade ‘021 Sun Light’. It is just a great natural bronzer and simple. If your looking for a bronzer that isn’t expensive at all then this one is the one for you because it is only $6!

bronzer

The blush that I am really loving right now is the NYX baked blush! The shade I love right now is ’11 Chiffon’. It is a very soft pink  (kind of like a dirty pink color) and it has a little bit of shimmer that is not glittery at all but just the right amount to give it a very nice glow. It is a very nice color at great price! This one was about $6.

blush

Now I have thick dark eyebrows but I still do like to fill them in a little around the edges. For me if I fill in even a little too much it will look very dark. I found this L’Oréal brow stylist kit which I think is perfect for just filling in a few tiny spots. I also love the brown color because it matches my black eyebrows yet it isn’t black to make them too dark. It’s small so it’s great to keep in your bag and it also comes with a very nice mirror which is definitely a plus. It also comes with a tiny brush and tweezer… so cute!

brow

For an everyday look I don’t always have time to do full eyeshadow so I just like to use this simple baked shadow which I found at H&M a while back. I really like this shade of brown for my eyes because I feel like this color matches my dark eyebrows and brown eyes. Also since I don’t really like to use eyeliner I think the brown helps to open up my eyes more. I like to put a little on my lower lash line as well.

I like to wear mascara a lot more than eyeliner. I feel like mascara is more softer and natural. The mascara I have been using at the moment is Lancôme’s Hypnose Doll Lashes. Check out the link to my other post to see what I think about this great mascara!

The Mascara I’ve been Loving

Even though this is a simple everyday look I still like to add just a tiny bit of glow. I like to use my highlighter which I got from Victoria’s Secret. I feel like it adds just a tiny bit of glow that is great for a simple makeup look! It has been a while since I have had this highlighter so ignore the crack haha.

Last but not least for my lips I love a nude color for a simple look. One of my favorite lip combinations is the NYX lip liner in the shade ‘Natural’ and the NYX soft matte lip cream in the shade ‘London’. I love it because I think it is so simple but still looks so pretty. Even though the lip cream is matte it is light weight but I still like to wear some lip balm before wearing the lip cream so it doesn’t get too dry. Both the lip cream and the lip liner is a very light brownish soft nude color. I love this color so much! This is my second time buying this shade of lip cream and will definitely buy another lip liner in this shade once it finishes.

The Mascara I’ve been Loving

mascara-full

After my eye began to get irritated I knew it was time to throw away most of my makeup. One of the things which I had to definitely throw away was my mascara. I spent a while thinking about which mascara to buy after because I knew I had to buy a good one this time. I remembered using a mascara from Lancôme which I used to think was very nice so I decided to give it another try. The one which I bought is called the ‘Hypnose Doll Lashes’ which was $27 from Lancôme. When I applied the mascara I saw that it gave my lashes a nice and natural look which I thought was great for my everyday makeup! It also curled my lashes very nicely and I didn’t even need to use an eyelash curler! However, I did notice that it can make my lashes slightly clumpy so I just make sure I don’t apply too much. Since the brush is big I saw that it gets every eyelash without having to apply many coats! Also when it was time to clean my mascara it easily and quickly came off with just soap and water. At the moment I am just really loving this mascara and how it gives me the perfect natural lashes! Let me know which mascara you are absolutely loving right now! I hope you liked this review or helped you if you were looking to test a different mascara!

Hope the new year is starting off well for everyone! Thanks for reading!

How I Decorated my Candles for the New Year

decoration.jpg

Happy New Year everyone!! I wish everyone a wonderful year full of health and happiness! For the new year I decided I would take some plain candles and decorate them with glitter. All you need for this easy DIY is some plain candles, glitter, mod podge glue, and something to apply your glue with. candle-needYou can do any pattern you like on your candles. I decided to go with a plain glitter one and a polka dot pattern one. I went with these designs since I did not have any stencils but if you do have stencils it will be easier and you could do many different designs. For the smaller one I covered the candle with mod podge glue and poured some glitter onto an aluminum foil. Then I just simply rolled the candle into the glitter and that was it! Once your done let it dry and when it’s dry you will still have glitter falling off but all you have to do is shake off the excess and then go over all the glitter with some more mod podge glue. The glue will dry clear and will seal the glitter so that it doesn’t fall off. For the polka dot design I just applied the glue on candle in little circles. Make sure you don’t apply too much glue because if you do it can drip and ruin the form of your dots which happened to me haha. Also you should do each side separate so it doesn’t get too messy. Then shake off the excess glitter and once it’s dry just like the other candle I sealed the glitter by just going over the dots with mod podge glue. I hope you liked this quick and easy DIY! Thanks for reading and once again I wish everyone a happy new year!

I am thankful I decided to blog this year because it makes me happy to share my thoughts with everyone. I am sooo excited for 2017 because I know I will be posting so much… how is that not exciting!?
