I walked into my local drugstore with my neighbor a few weeks ago & even though I had no intentions of buying anything new – I walked out with two products! I truly didn’t want to buy anything, mainly because I had no money on me & also because I’m trying to save for my vacation in 2 weeks, however, she offered to buy me something if I really wanted it – so how could I say no?! Haha!
These are two products I’ve been eyeing for quite some time: Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind Concealer in the shade Honey & Wet N Wild’s Lipstick in Cherry Bomb! I’ve tested out both products & have had positive results with both! I’ll post a FAB or DRAB review on the concealer within the next few weeks & I’ll post a First Impression post on the lipstick as soon as I wear it out! x
In these posts, I’ll review products that I’ve purchased and tell you whether or not I liked them! I’ll rate the product as hearts, ♥ out of 5.
- Results: ♥♥♥♥♥/5 .. FAB!!!!
- Pros: Super easy to apply, look very natural – no one knew i was wearing lashes when I wore them to work! Affordable – only $7 for two pairs of lashes compared to buying 1 pair for around $5.
- Cons: The only con I could think of when reviewing this product is that the glue that comes with the lashes, doesn’t really last too long because I know my inner corners loosened after a few hours, but of course that could be my own fault – maybe I blink too much, who knows! LOL
I recommend everyone get these lashes! I wore the top pair (in the picture) have yet to wear the bottom ones, but I’m saving them for a special occasion. They have a collection out with other disney princesses, and I want to get them all! Look for them at Walgreens! xo

Today’s post is on washing makeup brushes. I’m not a professional nor am I a licensed makeup artist, however, this method works best for me and my brushes & my opinion/ technique is what I’m sharing with you on this post.
Pretty much all I do is: mix my soap (baby shampoo) & oil (coconut oil) in a container, dip the brush & swirl until it rinses clear. You can use this technique for any soap + oil. I’ve done it with shampoo, Dawn dish soap + olive oil. This is the first time I’ve done it with coconut oil and I prefer it, because this particular jar from Trader Joe’s does have a scent/flavor.
(Sorry for the large photos – but, the better to see with my dear, right? right? get it? no? okay.)
& As they’re drying, I pick a few up one by one & fluff them up with my fingers to make sure they’re drying nicely and not losing their shape. This is how I deep clean my brushes about every 2 weeks! Please if you know any quicker ways to clean brushes in between deep washes – LET ME KNOW! This method is too tedious to do every. single. time! hahah! Thank you!!!
Any questions, comments or concerns? Leave them down below! x
Here’s a quick post on one of my new favorite lip combos for super bright, pink lips! All you need is two lipsticks – no liner, no gloss!
First apply L’Oreal Vivids lipstick in the color 875 Vivid Rose & then layer Wet N Wild’s 910D in Red Velvet on top! That’s it! Super simple, super bright! Perfect for a night out during the summer!
When I first started out experimenting with makeup, I of course, had no brushes. That is until one day I was staring at a container of paint brushes and realized, “I could TOTALLY use these for eyeshadow!” & That I did! I washed and dried the brushes, and then began practicing!
1st brush: I use this dense, flared brush for blending out my concealer.
2nd brush: I just got this over Halloween and have been using this angled brush for eyeliner/smudging.
3rd brush: First craft brush I used! Soft bristles, great for blending eyeshadow.
Paint/Craft brushes are great tools to use when applying makeup because they’re affordable and work just as well as the ones you’d buy for about $15 ea.
Have you ever done this before? Did you enjoy this tip? Let me know in the comments below.
I’ve worn this look twice and each time I always get complimented on it! It’s super easy and only requires 3 products! This look can be done with any color, as long as you have an eyeliner pencil & eyeshadow that match!
1. Apply NYX Jumbo Pencil in the color Purple, all over lid. Blend. Then add a purple eyeshadow over the cream base, for this look, I used the color Hollywood from BH Cosmetics‘ California Palette Trio.
2. Blend with a deep brown color in the crease; for this look, I used SLEEK from The Balm’s NudeTude palette.
That’s it! See!!? Super easy! These pictures don’t do this look justice! It’s much more vibrant in person!
