New 💄Makeup Products I’m Loving♥️

Hey blog peeps, welcome back to my blog. Or if you are new here, I’d like to personally welcome you to the randomness. I hope you stay awhile and maybe even subscribe. I pretty much post whenever I feel like it with absolutely no consistency whatsoever and my content is really sub-par, but I can guarantee you a laugh or two at least, so stay awhile and you wont be dissappointed 😜

Today’s post is all about my new beauty products I have recently tried that I absolutely adore. Some of these are soooo old news to some of you beauty obsessed people, I know.  But I’m just now finally trying them.

Side note: after watching a few YouTube videos recently I was bummed to find that some of these products have received mixed reviews from the beauty vloggers I follow. Then the vloggers that gave rave reviews, well lets just say it was obvious they were all doing sponsored posts so who knows if they were really being 100% totally honest about the products.

To be absolutely clear again, these aren’t NEW products they are just new to me products. I like to wait until the hype dies down on brand new products before I jump on the bandwagon.

So let us begin…

1) Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette

Where has this been my whole life?  These colors are amazing and blend sooo well. You can create so many eye looks both natural and dramatic and although everyone was obsessed with this palette during the fall, I think it’s a great year round palette, even for Spring and I’m glad I finally purchased it.

2) Fiona Stiles Mistake Free Makeup Multidimensional Color Palette (Blush/Bronzer/highlighter palette)

Yes!!!  I had never tried any Fiona Stiles makeup before and found all Fiona Stiles makeup was recently on sale at Ulta for 50% off (if you hurry you can get some too at the discounted price!) so I decided it was the perfect time to try it. This face palette is so awesome. It blends really well and even if you mess up, like accidentally put on too much Bronzer (oh the tragedy…it’s happened to me one to many times) you can easily fix it. It looks very natural on my skin and every time I have used it I have gotten so many compliments on my makeup. Totally worth it and a new go to for me.   I love it so much I’m obsessing over her highlighting palette now and may grab that too while it’s 50% off (fingers crossed our Ulta has it in stock!)

3) YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in shade 10

A little pricey but so moisturizing. It exceeded my expectations and I’m glad I bought it. It’s the perfect everyday nude shade for me as well. I would totally buy more shades if it wasn’t so expensive. It glides on your lips like butta baby! It makes my lips feel so smooth and moisturized and not like I’m even wearing a lipstick at all but without being so sheer there isn’t any color payoff if that makes any sense whatsoever?

4) Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream (10-Adorable, 12-Prismatic Touch (Metallic), 11-Precious)

These are so awesome and smell like vanilla!  So many of my liquid lip products have a gross smell or taste. But these feel like I’m rubbing vanilla goodness all over my lips in beautiful nude shades and I love it. I have already purchase three of them because of this. These have been my go to here recently.  I’m obsessed with the nude shades but really want to try some of the brighter/darker shades now that it’s spring time.  Hot pink lips?  Yes please!

5) Tarte Shape Tape Concealer (fair)

So glad I finally was able to grab a shade that works for me.  Every time I’ve tried to purchase this it was sold out in my color(s).  Now that I have it, I can honestly say it really does live up to the hype. Very Brightening and does not crease at all. I think I will be using this instead of the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer I used to be obsessed with for the time being.

6) Milani Powder Blush (01-Romantic Rose)

Awesome quality for drug store and a beautiful color. Very impressed and had never tried their blushes before. A great day to day product. Very buttery smooth and pigmented but not overly pigmented like Makeup Geek blushes.

7) Fiona Stiles Ultimate Lash Icon Mascara (Carbon Canyon-Black)

This is really good and worth the $8 I paid for it, but I wouldn’t say it’s my all time favorite as it does take me at least three full coats plus my base coat of a lengthening mascara to get the effect I usually get with my absolute favorite mascara (Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir). Since I only paid $8 (regularly priced at $16) I can’t complain too much and I don’t regret the purchase, overall it’s not bad, it is a good consistency and the brush is pretty good.

So that it. That’s what I’ve purchased recently that I’m liking. I have to say though, basic and predictable aside, these products are working so well for me right now and I just had to share them with y’all.
What are some new to you products you are trying and loving right now?  Leave a comment below so I can check them out!  You know, cause I totally need more makeup.  LOL! 🙂

Until next time,

What I’m Reading…

One of my 2017 goals was to read more and to get through this pile of books I’ve been working on.    In making this goal, I was not quite sure where I was going to find the extra time in my already packed schedule to accomplish this feat but I then realized just how much time I was wasting each night before bed on social media.  I thought to myself maybe if I dedicated just 30 minutes of that wasted time each night I could finally make my way through the books on my “need to complete because I started reading it 9 months ago list”.

The first book on that list, which I have now successfully completed was

Living Well Spending Less by Ruth Soukup

A little about the book…

Ruth shares her experiences with finances, juggling the chaos of life, motherhood and being a wife.  While the book is generally speaking, a book about how to be frugal but still having a good life, a lot of the book focuses on other aspects of our lives that we are not giving enough attention.  While using her real life examples, she provides solutions or steps for you to do your own soul searching to find ways to manage the chaos of your life more effectively.  Managing said chaos will then help you achieve your financial goals and be able to do this thing called adult life a lot easier.

My thoughts on the book…

Before reading the book I thought the book would be filled with a few good ideas here or there if I was lucky but that in all honesty I was probably not going to be dedicated enough to incorporate those ideas in to my own life.  However, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I got out of this book.  It’s also a super easy and quick read with some homework assignments here and there as you progress though each chapter.  I like that because it made me focus on one topic at a time with a dedicated time to reflect on what I just read.

Reading this book couldn’t have come at a better time because I (as a wife & Foster Mom) felt I was slowly falling down a metaphorical spiraling hole.  This hole was full of a lack of organization, piles of laundry and just a chaotic and messy life in general with no clear direction, path or tangible goals in place.  I was feeling lost, stressed beyond belief, and longing for a simpler way to stay ahead of all of my responsibilities in my daily life.

Through reading the book I not only was forced to spend time thinking about my short-term goals, but also our long-term goals as a family as well.  I got great ideas on how to:

  • Simplify my schedule and my overwhelming to-do list and have actually incorporated those ideas in to our day to day life.
  • To develop a day to day and weekly cleaning schedule that isn’t overwhelming
  • Tackled the task of organizing our pantry closet (although that’s still a work in progress)
  • I was forced to get rid of excess in our home
  • I began more successfully utilizing a day to day yearly planner to stay organized
  • Re-developed a weekly budget (although I’m still struggling sticking to it)

 

I still struggle some days with these things but I’m doing much better and am really glad I read it.

What book(s) have you read that has positively impacted your chaotic adult life?  Have you read Living Well Spending Less by Ruth Soukup?  What did you think of the book?  Leave your thoughts, questions or comments below!

Until next time,

XOXO
