These eye shadows are absolutely beautiful. And the brush that comes with the palette is amazing!!! I don’t think the brushes get all of the attention they deserve. UD makes my favorite brushes.

BEST MASCARA EVER!!!!!

Hi again lovelies! I got this mascara in March, and I was so overly impressed, I had to put up some pics. This mascara is called the Wet n Wild Big Bold Curl Mascara, and I got it inย theย blackest black shade.

Image

Here are my lashes before the mascara:

Image

And here are my lashes after:

Image

And shockingly, this is only a few swipes.

Image

Image

It’s in a large tube:

Image

Here it is compared to a popular mascara:

The wand it HUMONGOUS:

This mascara is a very moist formula, that lengthens, and defines unlike any expensive mascara. Trust me, I’ve tried so many mascaras, and this one is by ย far the best; and the best part: it’s only $4!! Now, there are other mascaras that can build up lashes just like this one can, but the difference is that other mascaras have to be applied over and over again, and it takes a long time. As for this Wet n Wild mascara, you only need a couple of swipes to create the exact same effect.

So I very highly recommend this!!!

Drugstore Haul: Elf and Sally Hansen

At the beginning of March, I took a trip to Target. I had to restock on some of my fave Elf stuff, and a few other things caught my eye while I was there.

ImageImage

Image

I got this new Sally Hansen product: The Diamond Shine Base and Top Coat! I was very impressed by this, though I expected as much, because Sally Hansen is a great and trusty drugstore brand. It works great as a smooth, quick-drying base coat, and gives the perfect shiny, long-wearing top coat effect. This product was around 3-4 dollars.

before top coat.

ย 

After top coat. (I took the pictures in very reflective lighting, so there isn’t a huge difference in the pics, but trust me, this product does a fantabulous job!

ImageImage

This is the Elf Lip Exfoliator, something I’ve been wanting to try for a while now. It’s $2, and works awesomely! ๐Ÿ˜€ It has sugar, and other yummy products in it that will remove dead and flaking skin on the lips without hurting, or burning at all. And it tastesย amazing! ๐Ÿ˜‰

ImageImage

I’ve gone through 3 tubes of this awesome stuff. It has been my favorite mascara for a while. (until I found another drugstore one that I review soon)! It has an average-sized wand, it’s very black, and creates great length and definition for only $1!!!!!

Image

Image

This is another product that I’ve gotten before that I love. It’s a great black liquid liner, goes on smooth and lasts forever for only $1!!!

Image

I had 2 Elf Cream liners before I got this one. A dark blue one in Midnight, and THE MOST AMAZING ONE EVEEEEERRRRR Elf Cream Eyeliner in Black. I wanted to try the Coffee shade. These liners are only $3, with a lot of product. Trust me, I have tried the MAC Fluid-lines, and Elf Black is 100 times better hands-down than MAC Blacktrack. The Elf liners go on great, nice and smooth. (they also come with a handy little angled brush, great to keep for travel). And they dry veeeery long-lasting.

Image

(doesn’t loo amazing in the pics, but TRUST ME these liners are the best liners the world has to offer).

So that’s it, small, but I love all of these. Wow, I’ve had great luck! On all of the products I’ve ever gotten, I’ve never recieved or bought a bad one! …(yet) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope you enjoyed, any questions or requests? Comment below!

Much love and hugs, Lucy โค ๐Ÿ˜€

Look and Review: Mattify! Cosmetics

Hello beauties! Today, I have a review and a look for you, using Mattify! Cosmetics! ๐Ÿ˜€ So lets get to it:

Mattify! Cosmetics review 025

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Image

Here are all of the products. ๐Ÿ˜€

Image

This is the Mattify! ULTRA, which is a translucent powder. I’ve never owned one before, so I’m excited to use this everyday. This is a finely milled, mattifying powder, and I LOOOVE it! It really does an amazing job at keeping the shine at bay, and I highly recommend it for those of you who have shine.

Image

They also sent 2 blushes, a sample, and a full size.

Image

Harmony, and Strawberry Wine.

  • Harmony: can I just say O. M. G. This blush isย amazing!!!!!ย It is almost matte finish, with just a hint of sparkle, and man, this blush gives the most natural and beautiful flush. It gives you a great ‘no makeup’ makeup look on the cheeks. I love this to death.
  • Strawberry Wine: Wow!! This colors is such a beauty. The color is a very unique shade. I can’t quite describe it. Its absolutely GORGEOUS! It gives a beautiful color on the cheeks that will most definitely look great one all skin tones. I also tried it on my lips, and this will give you a matte, soft color on the lips that will give the ‘no makeup’ makeup look as well.

Image

Mattify! Sent me 3 eye shadows as well.

Image

Earth Angel, Mysterious Aurora, and Woodland Fairy.

Image

Here they are on black and white bases.

Image

Here are the eye shadows dry with no primer, and with a skin-tone primer.

Image

And here they are damp.

All 3 of these eye shadows are SO unique!! I don’t own anything like them. Earth Angel is a gorgeous peachy nude sparkle, and it looks amazing by it’s self on the lid for an everyday sparkle look. It’s also great on the water line, and the inner corner. Mysterious Aurora is sooo beautiful. It is a purple/blue, with light blue, pink, and purple sparkle. Its amazing, and I think it may be my fave. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Woodland Fairy is so gash darn amazing! Its a deep GORGEOUS earthy brown with gold glittery specks. It blends beautifully! I love it!! All of he eye shadows have GREAT packaging. Wow! The blushes, and the eye shadows have sifters, so the products are not messy, and won’t be even if you try. Also, many loose eye shadows I have get very messy, and get in between the little creases where the cap screws in. These ones don’t. They will not get messy or leak or anything at all. AMAZING!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Ok, so for the look I did, I used a very small amount of Urban Decay Primer potion on my right and left eyes, but on the left, I also used NYX Milk. I did the same exact eye shadow look one both eyes, but they turned out a little different. Here is the tutorial:

ImageImageImageImageImageImage

And here is the look finished:

ImageImage

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Image

Its nearly 80 degrees here! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, I really hope you liked the review, and the look. I am SO overly impressed by Mattify! Cosmetics, and I LOVE the products I received. I highly recommend this brand ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope you enjoyed! Please question or comment anything below! Much much Love, Lucy โค ๐Ÿ˜€

Review: The Color Workshop 100 Piece Palette!

In my Christmas Post, you can see that there is a palette in my stash! ๐Ÿ˜€

ImageImageImageImage

ย 

The eye shadows:

Image

ย 

I had three ‘arm fulls’ ๐Ÿ˜‰ of eye shadow swatches, all taken in cool and warm lighting. The eye shadows by Color Workshop are AMAZING! Whats special, is that they are all very unique, beautiful colors, and have really great variety of textures too. I LOVE them!! ๐Ÿ˜€

ImageImageImageImageImageImage

ย 

The lip colors swatched great on the back of my hand, but they were a little sheer..all of them. At least they were on my hand! I tried them all on my lips, and they are all very pigmented, and gorgeous, and last surprisingly long! ๐Ÿ˜€

ย 

ImageImage

ย 

Even though the blushes are in the pink/red/coral-y family, they are all great, long lasting, complimenting, an have light sparkle, matte and satin textures! ๐Ÿ˜€

Image

ย 

I’m SUPER impressed by the quality, and uniqueness of this palette! I’m obsessed with it! I will most definitely be using tons in my up coming looks ๐Ÿ˜‰

Next-Looks using the Color Workshop Palette! ๐Ÿ˜€

Review: Color Workshop Implements Compact

Hello lovelies! So I promised to do a review of the palette I used for yesterday’s ‘Raspberry and Chocolate’ look. The palette is titled the Color Workshop Implements Palette:

Image

ย 

Its nice and travel-sized ๐Ÿ™‚

ImageImage

ย 

And, when you use this palette all up, it comes out, and you can use the palette for something else! ๐Ÿ˜€

Image

ย 

The eyeshadows. (there is 11).

Image

ย 

The lighter colors: All of the eye shadows are very unique, yet wearable colors, which I love! The first one is a pale gray/lavender, and its not overly pigmented, but its a very pretty color. despite the lilac tone, it can work as a brow bone blender. ๐Ÿ˜€ The second color is a light pink..its the only color that barely has pigmentation..the upside to this is that it can be used as a brow bone highlight as well. The next color is very uniquely beautiful! Its a brown-ish rose, and its a great natural color. The next color is GORGEOUS! Its s light pink, but it has a tone that makes it one-of-a-kind. ๐Ÿ˜€ The next color is a rose. So pretty! Its VERY blend-able, and easy to work with. ๐Ÿ™‚ The last color shown here is also very beautiful! Its a tan with sandy pink undertones, only a hint, and its very pretty! ๐Ÿ˜€ It also has fantastic color pay-off.

Image

ย 

The darker shades HAVE to be my faves! ๐Ÿ˜€ The first is this gorgeous medium mid-tone pink. It very pretty on the eyes, despite the pink hue, and it has amazing color pay-off. This next color is the only eye shadow with some glittery/sparkle. Its very unique, and definitely one of my faves! ๐Ÿ˜€ This next color is also gorgeous. Its a darker brown, with gorgeous rosy undertones. It also has tiny sparkle particles that are a golden rose color, making this shade more warm. This color is also beautiful, but it takes a white base like NYX JEP in Milk (shown here) or a couple layers of the show for it to show up properly. But the color is GORGEOUS! ๐Ÿ˜€ The last color is this gorgeous brown! It has unique purple-y undertones, and its one of my faves as well. ๐Ÿ˜€

Image

ย 

The three lip colors are : a tinted glitter gloss, a yellow gloss, and a beautiful light rust color. The glosses are not sticky at all, but they don’t have a nice taste, I must say. But they wear very pretty, none the less. The rust color is GORGEOUS!ย 

Well, that’s it for my review, I hope it was helpful, and if you have any questions, let me know! ๐Ÿ˜€ Love you all very much!<Lucy ๐Ÿ˜€

Mac Review: Creme Base

Hey! So, today I have a mini haul and review for you. When my mom’s friend, Teri came with her ‘All Things Mac’ she gave me a Mac Creme Base in Shell! I’m so excited to share!

ImageImage

Image

This is a frost finish base, so you would think it might not be smooth. Well, it actually is very smooth! With the neutral undertones, the base is great for a ton of looks. Its super smooth, pigmented, and you can also wear it by it self for a quick fresh look for the eyes.

A 5 star product!

I hope you liked this! bye!<Lucy ๐Ÿ˜€
