Eyeliner Review: Wet n Wild Megaliner

450.jpg

 

Hello guys! Recently my eyeliner has been the worst. That’s because all my eyeliner has dried out on me (yes even the Physicians Formula one) which means that I had to throw it out. So I’d been searching for a new eyeliner, when a friend of mine told me to try out the Wet n Wild Megaliner liquid liner. I had heard about this liner, but for some reason I was a bit skeptical about whether or not this would actually work for me since I haven’t been using a liquid eyeliner.

But considering that this eyeliner was only $3, I decided to give it a shot and try it out. And I must say you guys, this eyeliner is absolutely amazing!

When you open the bottle, you see the super fine tip that really helps make a sharp wing. s-l225.jpg

And let me tell you guys, my liner hasn’t been this sharp for a really long time. The formula dries matte, which is a plus for me and the handle itself is actually really comfortable to use and glide the tip on your eyelid.  This is an eyeliner that really helps you practice your wing eyeliner.

Wing eyeliner is difficult, but this eyeliner this is really good at helping you because the tip is so fine and sharp that it helps you create the shape.

Overall I am really happy with the outcome of this eyeliner, and let’s hope that this doesn’t dry out on me.

This is my eyeliner game now:

Hope you guys enjoyed this little review! Let me know if you guys want me to do a post about how I do my eyeliner!

Love you all!!

Hello guys! I recently got my box from Influenster where I was sent Maybelline products for free to try out and give my honest opinion. I thought it was be cool to give you guys a review on these products and hopefully help you guys on your makeup journey. Hope you guys enjoy this post!

 

1. The 24K Nudes Palette: 2.5/ 5

At first, I thought this palette looked absolutely beautiful. The shimmer shadows looked so vibrant and I really thought the palette would be really great for glam looks. Unfortunately when I swatched the colors, they were really chalky and many lacked pigmentation. The shimmer shadows had so much fallout and some of the colors didn’t even show up on my eyelids. The problem with this palette is the fact that there isn’t good transition matte shades. I’m not a fan of using shimmer shadows to blend out my eyeshadow, I find it to look messy and clumpy. The majority of the shadows were shimmer ones so I felt I couldn’t really do much. This palette wasn’t good at all, I think palette should have a balance between mattes and shimmers, but this palette just didn’t cut if for me. I have palettes that come with more shadows and the shimmer shadows are way better than this, and also way bigger. This just didn’t do it for me, so I don’t think I’ll be using this at all.
2. Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel: 2/ 5

When I first opened this mascara, the wand scared the crap out of me. I have never seen a wand so thin and so just scary looking. I don’t like how it makes my eyelashes look. When I put it on it makes my eyelashes look so thin and just so spidery it’s a nightmare for me.  It does however make them really long, so that’s a plus, but I have my Reema volumizing mascara that makes my eyelashes look longer and thicker so I don’t need the Falsie Push Up. I wasn’t impressed at all with this mascara, it feel irritating on the eyes so I immediately washed it off before it hurt my eyes. Again, I didn’t like it, so I won’t be using this at all.
3. Maybelline Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil: 5/ 5

I don’t use pencil eyeliner at all, but when I tried this one out I was really surprised to find out how good this worked. This glides on super smoothly and it’s a nice jet black. I used this on one of my friends and I blended in to give it a smokey effect and it looked super nice. I don’t tight line my eyes but I tried it out with this eyeliner and I really liked how it was super easy to apply on my waterline and it wasn’t irritating at all! If you like pencil eyeliner you will love this eyeliner. I will definitely be experimenting with this eyeliner more.
I hope this post was helpful for you guys! Let me know in the comments what product I should review next. Talk to you guys soon ❤

Aliexpress buy: Violet Voss x Laura Lee Palette

FullSizeRender(8).jpg

Hey guys! Today I’m here to give you all my first ever Aliexpress review!!!I just got this beauty in the mail recently and after playing around with it I can finally give you guys my overall review of this product.

Before I begin with this review, I just want to say that Aliexpress in the holy grail for knock off makeup. I know people work really hard to design their own palettes and I respect that, BUT I don’t have the money to pay for that. Let’s be real not a lot of people have a lot money to be able to buy expensive makeup. I think makeup and beauty is inclusive, not exclusive. I used to feel discouraged to do makeup because I didn’t have all the expensive makeup. I think websites like Aliexpress are a really good platform for people starting off with makeup or people who are on a budget.

When you are looking to buy stuff from Aliexpress, I say look for Facebook groups. I’m in a Facebook group and we share links and products we bought from Aliexpress, Ebay, Amazon, etc. If you would like to join just let me know through my social media and I will give you the link.

Aliexpress also requires patience. These products are coming from all over the world so it’ll take a while for whatever you buy to get to your house. Most vendors are really open to communicate with buyers, so if you have any questions also contact the vendor.

Okay enough of my chattering let’s get to the review!

Violet Voss x Laura Lee Palette $11. 81 (free shipping)

This beautiful palette came across to me on the Facebook group while I was scrolling down. This was a palette that I really wanted BUT I didn’t have money when it came out, and when I finally did have money it wasn’t being sold anymore.

A lot people gave this product really good reviews, and I gotta say I have to 100% agree with the reviews. This is such a beautiful palette, and the formula is incredible for the price. The colors are actually pigmented, and blending is so easy with these colors!!

THE GLITTER SHADOWS ARE SO BUTTERY AND SO PIGMENTED I CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE IT!!! I own the Modern Renaissance palette and I like this palette a lot more. I love the color range and I love how you can seriously do so many looks with this palette. I also really like the transition shades in the palette, I think this palette is so good for all skin tones. I think this is a palette for an everyday look and a glam look, I just think this is a good investment for an avid makeup user.

Here are the swatches of all the colors. I really like the pigmentation, yes it’s not super pigmented but for $11 I say it’s better than what you paid for. And just look at the glitter shadows like come on guys you can’t beat that. I will say though the glitter shadows have some fallout but it’s nothing a makeup wipe can’t clean up.

If you are interested in this palette contact me either here or via my social media. I won’t post the link here mainly because I do not wish to get the seller in any trouble. The seller is incredible and is super transparent so please contact me in private if you want the link.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I hope I’ve shined some light on the idea of trying Aliexpress (trust me guys you won’t regret it). Talk to you guys later! ❤

Product Review

IMG_0946

Hey guys! I’m super sorry for being so MIA these past two days. Friday I was at my grandparent’s house all day, and yesterday I was celebrating my 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend!! Today I’m making this post to give you guys reviews on three products I got yesterday at Sephora. I made a video of me using this product (I will make a post about it once it’s up). I will talk about all three products in this post and list the prices.

1. Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer: $19-$75

Obviously I didn’t get the full size item, I got a sample size from Sephora because I had over 100 points (definitely try becoming a beauty insider at Sephora). The inside of mine had a little spatula applicator that came with little holes to hold onto the product. When I applied it, it was very sheer and it felt like lotion. The odor wasn’t strong, it didn’t really have a sent. When I rubbed in onto my skin I felt like if I had my L.A girl high definition smoothing face primer. It felt very cushiony and almost like collagen, what really impressed me was how fast it dried and how well it sat on my face. This didn’t really clear up any redness I had nor did it fill in my pores or fine lines so when I put on my foundation I could still see all my lines and pores. I don’t really know how to feel about this primer, it’s nice and matifying but not a big fan of how my face looked afterwards. I have oily skin, so this did do the job of keeping my face matte; I will definitely still be trying this out and hopefully I will come to like this product.

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer: $23

I had seen this in an instagram video and I had to buy it. When I saw the video, the girl that was filling in her eyebrows had about the same shape and thickness of my eyebrows, and I loved how this product made her eyebrows look. Surely enough when I tried it out I loved it so much. I got this in the shade chocolate and it matched my color so well!! I love how the formula just glides on; the triangular shape really helps you create a shape for your eyebrows and the spoolie helps blend out any harsh lines and it just leaves your eyebrows looking so nice and full. I definitely will be using this a lot.

3. Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray: $15-$31

ATTENTION ANYONE WHO HAS OIL SKIN LIKE ME THIS IS THE ANSWER TO OUR PRAYERS!!! This setting spray is absolutely amazing, I can’t stress this enough there needs to be more hype for this!!!!! I got the travel size for $15 because I don’t wear foundation that often but holy crap guys this is so amazing. So when I sprayed it the mist was so nice and smooth and as soon as it sat on my skin BOOM instantly dry and made my skin super nice and matte. Best part it didn’t makeup my foundation oxidize and you cold immediately tell shine did go away. If you’ve been having a hard time finding a setting spray that actually helps with oily skin I definitely recommend this one.

The final look:
