Hi everyone hope you're all doing well!
I have a haul for you guys :)
*warning-this post is picture GALORE! : )
wonderful gladiator shoes I got! ahh I love them! they're comfy :)
I got this LOVELY blush from Sephora by a brand called The Balm and the blush is called HotMama! lol I got it because it reminded me so much of NARS' Orgasm or Deep throat blush?? and i've seriously been wanting to try the NARS one but always forget or end up changing my mind! and also, because I've never seen this brand. Nars blushes run for $25 but I got this one for $19 so it was $6 cheaper than NARS and its the same size! great buy right?! Im loving ittt.
picked up these shimmer cube eyeshadows from the body shop. theyre so nicely pigmented and shimmery-I haven't really had a chance to use them yet but I'm really liking it! I will do a review on this soon! it comes in a square plastic box and when you open it, each shimmer cube is in its own little plastic cube to avoid messes.
I finally tried Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer! oh this stuff is sooo AMAZING! its really great because I don't need much coverage so this is the perfect product for me! -(I wouldn't recommend this product for anyone who needs full coverage because it won't due that) its soo lightweight on my face and feels as if nothing is there. there's also no smell so that's good. it's tad pricey for just tinted moisturizer but its definitely worth it! My color that I use is in 'Nude' this color works great for me in the summer time but I may switch to the color Porcelain when the winter time comes around because I tend to get a bit lighter. I also got the foundation primer and it goes great with it.
After I apply moisturizer, primer and the tinted moisturizer, I apply this NARS loose setting powder. It goes on great and looks so nice! I'm really loving this. The color is called 'Desert' I think. I'm so glad I found use for this!
Evian water face mist with minerals. just spray this on your face when you're hot and or sweaty and it instantly cools you down! it also sets your makeup so thats a bonus :)
silver studded flip flops- super cute and got them for a pretty good deal!
POP day to play eyeshadow palette. Haven't had a chance to play around with this yet but all the colors look lovely!
ViVi Magazine-oh this mag is AMAZING! its super thick and sooo so cute! definitely great for outfit inspirations-I'll def. be getting more :)
Forever21 dress. this is love. its such a nice dress!
cute top from Forever21. I don't have anything in this color so I thought I'd get it and I'm very glad I did!
another dress from Forever21. I love the pattern.
I decided to start using a heat protectant spray-Im using Beyond the Zone? heat protectant. smells really fruity!
before I began to use Laura mercier's tinted moisturizer, I had been using benefit's you rebel in lite. It felt kind of heavy on my face and they only have two different shades so as you can imagine, it didn't really match my skin tone. It was also a bit greasy since its not oil free. I also stopped using this because there was a point where my skin would get irritated and get red and itchy so I stopped using all products at the time. but im pretty sure this contributed to what made me break out! but I'm not sure so don't take my word for it but I won't be risking it by using this ever again. so that's why I don't like this product. The only good thing about this is that it has a nice smell to it. some people like it, and others don't.
hope you all enjoyed the post! :) thanks for reading<333
For the next few weeks I may be a bit busy because i'll be busy planning my trip back to California! I'm going in mid-August and Im super excited about it! anyway, I'll try my best to continue blogging! <3 <3
