Hey lovelies! I recently was scrolling through Pinterest and saw some of these makeup reviving DIYs that I thought would be so fun to do, so I tried them out for you all and you can see which ones work and which ones I love! I was so surprised with them because they were better […]
Happy Sunday! First off I want to commend Wet n Wild for being a cruelty free brand. Given the fact this brand is so affordable and cruelty free, makes me love this brand even more. Gone are the days of Wet n Wild being the brand you avoided at the drug store. Now people gravitate towards this brand with their wide variety of items and on trend products.
I recently purchased Wet n Wild Photofocus Concealer in light ivory from Walmart for a whopping $3.93! I have tried many concealers over the years. High end along with many drug store brands. My most recent favorite was Maybelline Age Rewind, which was my new favorite, until now. I saw the Wet n Wild concealer on my favorite vlogger channel, the GlamGuru by Tati Westbrook.
Here’s the description from Walmart’s website:
Let your natural beauty shine with our selfie-tested creamy and luminous concealer. Tested to be white cast-free under seven different photo lighting conditions, this high coverage concealer allows only your best features to get noticed. Gorgeous skin will be your only look.
White cast-free under seven different photo lighting conditions, this high coverage concealer allows only your best features to get noticed.
Instantly brightens and perfects appearance of skin – Conceals imperfections, dark spots and blemishes
Gentle enough to use on the delicate under eye area – Formulated with light-diffusing pigment
Delivers lightweight, buildable coverage
The coverage is amazing! It barely creases under my eyes, (I have a lot of under eye lines) and lasts all day. Before I starting using this product, I was using two concealers. One under my eyes, and one on my nose. For my daily make up, I just use under eye concealer and concealer on my nose, no foundation. This concealer is fabulous!
I have never paid this little for such an awesome product. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
Happy Hump day! I haven’t reviewed an Ipsy bag for a while because the ones I had received lately were just meh!
This May bag is da bomb! I love everything in it, especially the bag. It’s larger than usual. It could be used for an overnight cosmetic bag. It’s all ice cream cones and popsicles. Sweet!
Let’s get started. First off, everything in my bag is cruelty free. Awesome sauce! I got Mannakadar Beauty Bronzer/Highlighter. Retails for $21 and is full size. I’ll be using this as eyeshadow as I love the bronzer and the highlighter is a perfect color.
Adesse Organic Infused nail lacquer in light blue. Perfect for summer and full sized, retails for $18.
Luxie Beauty brush number 660, precision foundation brush. Super soft and full size, retail value $23.
Endless Silky Eye Pen Pixi by Petra in Opal Overcoat, a waterproof sparkly light amber color, should look great with my blue eyes. It’s mini size valued at $6.
Last, but not least IT Super Hero black mascara. It makes some amazing claims, check back later for a more in depth review. Retails for $12.
Total value of May’s bag-$80! Wow! It only cost $10. I’ve been getting Ipsy bags since they started. I was thinking of cancelling it, but not now! Keep up the good work Ipsy!
Happy Sunday! I usually go to Ulta every week. Lately I’ve been watching my spending, so I gave up my weekly visits. I thought for sure I might croak, but luckily for me I didn’t.
As I was doing my Sunday paper coupon clipping, I came across some Almay coupons I had that were expiring today. I use to use Almay products a lot, but it seems as though the line has dwindled in the past few years. They have a lip color I really like, and had stocked up on awhile ago. Well these lip colors were on clearance, and I got them for a song. I think they use to cost about $8, I ended up paying $.49 each with the $3 off coupons I had. I have on Smart Shade Butter in Red Medium on the left and Nude Medium on the right. It’s a very light feel and very moisturizing. And at less than 50 cents each, I’m not complaining.
First off let me say, my selfie skills suck. I only have on eye make up, and concealer. I’m not the best at contouring, but I did really like this palette. It has detailed instructions on the back for best product placement. The blush is a very pretty pale coral color, which looks nice on my pasty white skin. I paid $8 for almost $30 worth of make up. Yeah!
Happy Thursday! I haven’t posted in awhile as lots of personal stuff going on. I’ve had to scale back my weekly visits to Ulta, (which is killing me), but I did visit last week and got some great stuff.
Full disclosure, I’m not a big fan of full coverage foundation. I have good skin for my age, and only spot conceal and use loose powder. I was in Ulta and had a ton of coupons, along with their buy one get one 50% off sale going on, so it was time to try some new things. CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation in Classic Ivory. I rarely use liquid foundation, and am a lover of powder foundation when I use it. I have mature skin and a few spots that need covering. This product was $10.99 at Ulta, but I paid $5.50 with coupons and store specials. It’s one ounce and has an SPF of 20.
Here’s Ulta’s description- The Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 foundation longwear that keeps you all day flawless. Longwear designed to stay fabulous all day because it has concealer and primer built in. Smooth, even coverage. SPF 20.
I’m always skeptical of 3 in 1 products. Rarely do they do as advertised. I was happily wrong on this foundation. The claim of a primer, concealer and foundation was spot on. I didn’t have to use concealer under my eyes, and barely had to use concealer elsewhere. I have dark circles, and this foundation totally covered them. The coverage last all day. I wish the SPF was higher, like a 30, as I use a moisturizer with a 30 SPF daily. This has great coverage but is not too thick. I have good skin, so I don’t have a lot I need to cover up. Plus the price can’t be beat. I will be buying this again. The picture I have was at lunchtime, no need to touch up.
I’m 58 and don’t have too many wrinkles. It was great not having to use concealer under my eyes, as it always seems to settle in the many lines I have. Typical car photo, and it’s April here in Southeastern Wisconsin and I’m still wearing a winter coat! Oh, and my selfie skills suck! I heard on the radio that if you were born after 1980, you are likely to take 25,000 selfies in your lifetime. Yikes! Do people really want to see you that much? Of course my teenage son is constantly on Snapchat.
