Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot: Box O' Blushes Unboxing, Swatches, and Review

HALLLOOOWW! (As Marcus Butler would say)
Today, I bring to you a cheeky holiday gift set unboxing! We are going to be talking about Benefits Cheeky Sweet Spot Limited Edition Box Set! I was so so so ecstatic when I saw this on Sephora. I think it's the perfect way for an individual to experience the awesomeness of Benefit's blushes without individually purchasing all of them. Plus it comes with the highlighter watt's up (which I totally been wanting for forever!) They are currently sold out online (Sephora, Benefit.com), but they are still available in stores last I checked.  (Macys, Sephora)
However, if you are unable to go to a local store, or don't have one at your convnince here are some fancy links where you can get your hand on these blushes


...


My Overall Review:
9/10
Love this Set! I highly reccomend guys or gals looking to expand their blush/bronzer collection to purchase this set. Also, this set makes a great holiday/birthday gift! This is limited edition so if you are eyeing this I would hop on it fast. Benefit blushes/bronzers are pretty well formulated and have decent staying power. I own the Hoola bronzer already, (and I've hit pan!) and it's a great contour and all over bronzer. It has lasted me forever (2 years), and I still have a decet amount left. The brush it comes with is not very durable. I have washed the brush that comes with the hoola bronzer only a handful of time and it's pretty much wear and tear. So definitely invest in a good cheek blush! I would also like to add that some of these blushes may not show up too well on darker skin tones o that may be something to consider. Anyways, thanks for reading and have a nice day/night! (:

Sephora Haul: Urban Decay All Nighter Spray, Give Me Some Lip, Soap and Glory Clarity Face Soap (Mini Review and Swatches)



I love me some Sephora!! I am also very very happy to announce that I have sucessfully become a VIB Sephora Member starting earlier this fall! (And I'm pretty close to becoming a VIB Rouge member, ahh! Exciting). Anways, here is a late post haul that I actuall purchased about half a month ago. But I thought I would share it with you since I have pictures and it is holiday season, so this ma be helpful to all you little makeup gift givers! Enjoy :D





Urban Decay All Nighter Spray: I'm sorry to say that I tried to 
veer away from this spray and ventured out to try a few others. BUT I am 
back and will stay back for a while. So sorry I ever left, but this by far still the best
setting spray I ever used. This is a great gift (whether it be for someone else or yourself!)
because it's basically the price of one for TWO!? This is still in stock, so if you are faithful to
this spray and know you will restock, I'd suggest to restock now and save it for later. (Saving money is your friend!)
[UPDATE: Currently out of stock but they may restock again for the holiday season, kepp our eyes peeled!] 


Give Me Some Lip: ($25, $90 Value)
 This set contains: 

- 0.03 oz Urban Decay Mini Naked Revolution Lipstick 
- 0.12 oz Nars Deluxe Orgasm Lip Gloss 
- 0.07 oz Buxom Mini Full On Lip Cream in White Russian 
- 0.02 oz Marc Jacobs Mini Lust for Lacquer in Kissability 
- 0.05 oz Deluxe Bite High Pigment Lip Pencil in Meritage 
- 0.20 oz Full-size Smashbox Be Legendary Gloss in Pout



(In Sunlight)

(Indoor Lighting)

 And another one in sunlight!
 So far I'm really loving this set! My favorites are the Urban Decay Revolution and Smashbox's Pout! I use that combo on a weekly basis. The Smashbox Pout really looks good over any lipstick. It just kinda adds a extra pazzaz to whatever you are wearing. The Buxom one kinda stings my lips, regardless I still love the color! The Marc Jacobs has been a hard one to us so far, but I'm sure I'll figure out a look that goes with it soon. Overall, I'm pretty glad with this purchase and would reccomend it to lip junkies or starters! :D


This is a great light exfoliating cleanser. Personally, I don't think it does musch exfoliating. The beads are rather large but you dont get that scratchy feeling as you when you use other exfoliating cleansers. I think this is a great face wash for sensite skin guys and gals. I do really enjoy this cleanser but am defintely on the fence about repurchasing because although it worked for me for a while my skin type has chaged so it dosen't really suit me anymore.

Back to Basics

Hello everyone! It's pretty much been a whole enitre year since I've posted. Life has been pretty crazy. I've had some personal issues that have been keeping me from blogging and interacting with the rest of the world, but I am happy to be back and hopefully will be able to post more consistently!
Just going to start off with a quick outfit post. Nothing fancy, just something super casual. Let's just jump right in ~~






Peep at my little sister. Haha!

I was pretty bummed that day because I lost one of my favorite bracelets of all time. I guess it fell off my write while I was getting gas. I got it from Urban Outfitters for like 14-16 bucks (so pricey~~). But anyways here is a picture of it below. 


Hope whoever picked it up treats it well :'(

Yay, first blogged outfit of 2014!(:
I really, really want to blog more and I am going to try to be more consistent this year. It's been really hard trying to juggle all the chaotic things in my life recently, but I'll try my best to post as often as I can. This is the outfit I wore on Sunday. I felt very fancy with my fluffy mohair like cardigan (my sister calls it my yetti fur), black pumps, and a big floppy hat. I wore a nude lip (brownish nude with a slight hint of red) with this look. 


Top, Cardigan,Shorts: Forever21
Shoes: H&M
Hat: Ebay






sidenote: defs get this cardigan, so soft!!

Super Late Birthday Post

Hey! So, my birthday was December third, and I was meaning to post this and share with you but I never got to it. So here it is now like a bajillion years later. (: Whoo procrastination for the win!

Let's start with my "birthday outfit" 
(This wasn't my actual birthday but I celebrated it on this day)
Top, skirt, necklace: F21
Shoes: Pacsun
Purse: Dooney and Bourke

Some shopping after and GIFTS(:



(Dooney and Bourke Dillen Crossbody Satchel)

I am truly blessed and thankful for all the great things in my life<33 
Since it was my 18th birthday, my parents decided to spoil me. I totally 100% was not expecting a Prada Saffiano Bag. I didn't even ask for one. I have been to scared to wear it out in public because it's just so nice and I don't want to mess it up! Anyways that's a quick summary of my birthday celebration from ten years ago.

Vegan/ Cruelty Free Drugstore Makeup

Hey fellow human beings surfing the Internet! 
So, today I have a vegan friendly makeup list post for you all! I'm not vegan or vegetarian, but I do have a lot of friends that are. Lately another one of my very good friends has converted to veganism and so our conversations have been more vegan related. Spending time with my friends often influences me to google random vegan facts just because, and I've noticed it's always been hard for not only my freinds but other vegans out there to find vegan friendly makeup. So any who, basically I did some research for my friends but decided to share with all of you too!(:

**Disclaimer: Please do your own research before you head out and buy any of these products. I am not vegan and have very limited knowledge on what ingredients vegans consider "friendly". All these products mentioned I found on either the official brand's website, off of other blogs, or vegan community sites. All these products are cruelty free and contain no animal derived products. HOWEVER, even though some of these companies state they do not test on animal, some of their parent companies do. Please do your own research and be aware of these complications. Thank you.
