Fall Eyeshadow Picks ♥

Hey guys! So out of my eyeshadow, these are my favorites to use in the fall time! I'm still working on my makeup collection and buying more and everything, so I had a limited amount to choose from, but these are the top dogs! I'm hoping soon I'll be going to buy some makeup when I get my allowance because I really want to do some hauls and reviews! Anyways, on to the post!

First, the naked  palette. Of course this is in here! It has the perfect range of light to dark colors, so you can go smokey for fall or keep it natural! Next is the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette. This has amazing pigmentation and is only $5, a definite must have! It has greens and browns so it's perfect for fall!Last is this quad by covergirl in "Pure Romance" It has nice pink and taupe colors which I think is a nice change for fall rather than just smokey browns!

Eyeshadow Look: Natural Smokey

First 3 Pictures With Flash

Last 3 Pictures Without Flash

First I applied NYX Eyeshadow Base
Next, I applied Sidecar with my elf eyeshadow brush to my inner half.
After that I took Smog on the outer half. 
Then, I used buck in the crease with my crease brush.
To add a little more darkness, I used the crease brush and patted some of Darkhorse onto my outer third.
I used Urban Decay's 24/7 Zero Eyeliner and Covergirl Lashblast Mascara.

Double Maybelline Review

Hey guys! So today I have a review on two Maybelline products. 
First up is 'Cherry Me' Baby Lips. I also half one of these in 'Pink Punch' but I don't like it. It's too barbie pink for my taste. This one is a sheer strawberry red. The babylips are super moisturzing, and next on my wishlist is the peach one. 

This lipbalm gives a sheer red tint that I really love. Swatches down below! They cost about $3-$4 depending on where you go.

Next I have my limited edition Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow in 'Barely Beige'

Excuse my chipping nail polish! This is a lovely neutral base. It's a shimmery champagne that a lot of people say is a dupe for Mac's Bare Study paintpot. Like all other color tattoos, this has amazing staying power. I put it on at 6 in the morning, and it's still there at 7 at night. These have absolutely no creasing, and are an amazing deal for $8! I also have one of these in Tough as Taupe, but I don't find many uses for it. It's kind of dark.

Here are some swatches!

So that's it for my double Maybelline review. I've been loving these two products recently. Drugstore products are totally worth checking out!

Oh, and also, I hit 1000 pageviews! Yay! :D Thanks to everyone!

Beauty Haul!

Hey guys! A small haul for you today. I went to CVS because I ran out of makeup remover and my mom was going to be near it, so i picked up their "cleansing & makeup remover towelettes." I've never used their makeup remover wipes, but I used one last night and I really like it! They're really soft and do a nice job. They were $5. Then, of course, I picked up a limited edition color tattoo by maybelline in "Barely Beige" a shimmery neutral some have compared to bare study paint pot by mac. It was about $8. Last, I got another maybelline babylips in Cherry Me. A pretty sheer red color. It was $4.

Eyeshadow Look: Comfort Zone

Hey guys! So I have a quick eyeshadow look for you today. 

Using my comfort zone palette from Wet n Wild, I took the left browbone shade on my inner half, and then put the left eyelid shade on my outer half. I really love the warmth and rosy bronze look the eyeshadow has. These colors are great for enhancing blue eyes. 

The wet n wild comfort zone palette can be found at Walmart, K-Mart, CVS, and a few other places for around $5. It's a great deal!

Makeup Storage/Collection

Hey guys! So today I have a post about my makeup storage/collection. I really like how my makeup is stored right now, so I figured I'd do a post about it! For the first part of my makeup storage, I have a 3-drawer container that has my makeup in it. The floral container above it holds my makeup brushes, and I just have a container of vaseline next to it because apparently it makes your eyelashes longer if you use it enough, so I've been putting it on my eyelashes before I go to bed. Behind that are my palettes, I have a letter separater thingy. It has two compartments. In the first in my Urban Decay Feminine Palette, and then the second has my Mac palette and my Naked palette of course. Next to all of that are the lotion and body spray I use daily. The lotion is bath and body works warm harvest apple, and I looove apple scents so I use this so much. Then I have my crescent bay hollister body spray which smells so sweet and fruity. Now to the drawers!

In the bottom drawer I have lip and face products.

In the middle drawer I have eyeshadows. 

and in the top drawer I have eyeliner, mascara, and primer!

Then, across my room I have this pink box. Also my elf palette is behind it but I don't use it often.

I keep all of the makeup I don't use as often in this box.

Hope you guys enjoyed! If you want more in-depths posts about what's in my drawers, or what's in the box, just let me know in the comments!

My Favorite Red Lip

Hey guys! So today I have a post about my favorite red lip. I'm not very bold, so I like a more natural looking lip. Anyways, these are the products I use!

 elf lipstick in fearless $1 ; sugar lips rose treatment $22.50 full size

 First, I use the sugarlips treatment as a base for the red, it gives a little tint and moisturizes well. Then, I dab on the lipstick, not fully applying it, rub my lips together, blend a bit with my fingers, clean up the edges, and voila! You can make these lips as dark or light as you want, but I like the rosy look where it looks like you just ate a red popsicle, instead of where your lips are full on red.

Best & Worst: elf Essential $1 Brushes

Hey guys! So today I have a post about elf brushes. These are from the essential line, and they cost $1. I have tried 7, but there are still more for me to try. 
The Worst: 
elf smudge eye sponge: you know how some eyeliner come with a smudger on the end? that's literally what this is. I don't use it, like ever, and I didn't expect it to be like this. it's also much harder than most smudgers. this isn't very useful

elf fan brush: doesn't sweep away fallen eyeshadow like it should, doesn't pick up product easily, and once again isn't very useful.

The Best:

elf crease brush: nice and small, gets eyeshadows where you want them. nice for putting shadow under the lashline. 

elf blending brush: i wish it was bigger, but it does work nicely. 

elf eyeshadow brush: perfect for putting shadow all over the lid. 

*These brushes are a must-have for only $1!

I also have two other brushes from elf but I didn't have that much of an opinion of them that they would belong in either the best or the worst. I have the eyeliner brush and the eyebrow comb. 

Keep in mind I haven't tried every single brush in their line. But of the ones I have tried, these are the best, the worst, and the inbetweeners. I'm looking forward to trying their $3 brushes.

Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Lotion Review

Hey guys! So today I have a quick review of these Bath & Body Works anti-bacterial moisturizing hand lotion. For me, these are a must-have because they clean your hands without drying them out like hand sanitizer does to me. They cost $4, or you can get 2 for $5 right now. They smell amazing, they clean your hands, and they moisturize. These are definitely perfect to keep in your purse, or your backpack at school. I have never heard a lot of hype about these, but they are amazing!

Oh, and I wanted to thank all of my subscribers! I made it to 60! 40 more until 100 :)

Also, tomorrow is my first day of school. I'll be a sophomore! I'll be posting a lot more because I'll be wearing makeup everyday, so september will have plenty of posts!

New Found Love: Naked

Oh my goodness, this is the most amazing thing I've ever tried EVER. I'm in love.

I'm sure most of you guys have heard of the Urban Decay Naked Palette, and I have been wanting to buy it for MONTHS. I know, I'm a little late on the bandwagon, but the Naked Palette was already out when I first discovered the beauty community on youtube. I actually returned a pair of shoes for this palette. 

As you probably know, it has 12 eyeshadows, a brush, and a mini UDPP, and costs $50. 

 If you don't already have the Naked palette, GO BUY IT! This palette is so amazing and perfect for everyday. You can get natural looks, smokey looks, dark looks, light looks, golden looks, brown looks, what ever you want! It's totally worth the $50. Now my new question is, should I buy the Naked 2 Palette?
