When it come to picking out perfume , I get very pick with my choose that I make. I am very sensitive when it come to perfume and i usually end up with a head if the sent is to over powering. So I the fact that I bough this sent with out even smelling is pretty daring for me. One night a few weeks back when I could not sleep I tuned on the TV with is the worst thing to do.
When I normally can’t sleep I usually put on the QVC channel to fall asleep to but unlucky for me that night they had Philosophy on. They presented this holiday collect that was for Christmas in July event that contained the Fresh Cream Soft Suede set. This immediately peaked my interest because I am such a big fan of Fresh Cream, the original . So of course, I order it with out really even thinking about it .
I was quite sure that I would have to return it because I would not like the scent at all. However, when I finally got it in the mail I was pleasantly surprised how much I actually enjoyed the fragrance. The first note that you get is a warm vanilla scent that then mellow out to a smoky bourbon, musk, leather cream and amber. It is defiantly a warm and cozy scent which would be prefect for the colder months .
I am super happy that I picked up this set from QVC and quite happy that I enjoy the scent as much as I do for never smelling it before I bought it. I can wait to wear Fresh Cream Soft Suede this fall and winter !!
Honestly, most days I am lucky if I am able to walk out the door with my scrub pants on the right way round let alone have a full face of makeup on my face. Nevertheless, when I do have a little extra time to put on more than mascara, that is where my trusty five minutes makeup routine comes in to play.
To begin with, I use the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue all over my face either with my fingers or a Real Techniques sponge. This is great for evening out my skin tone while giving me some SPF 30. I then like to give my face a little bit of color by using some bronzer. The bronzer that I have been loving lately is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer.
Now, that my face is done I move on to my eyes. I like to take a fluffy shadow brush and dip into a matte shade to give a wash of color on my eyelid. I focus most of the color on my lid and then blend outwards from that point. My go-to colors are mainly warm browns but I have been using the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions for the last couple months.
My favorite shade from the palette is the chocolate/purple color with works really well with my skin tone. I like to at least apply one coat of mascara to finish off my eye look. For the daytime I like my eyelashes to look pretty natural and that is what the Marc Jacobs Noir Velvet mascara does to my eyelashes .
To finishes off my look, I will throw on my lip balm like the glossier Blamdotcom. This routine takes me no longer than five minutes to do but it just gives me that little bit more put together look when I walk out the door.
Do you have your quick makeup routine when you’re in a rush? Do you have a makeup product that you always put on ?
I have been wanting to share my skincare routine for a while but I wanted to make sure that I was pretty happy with it before I shared it. I have always been quite lucky with my skin and not having to worry about having crazy acne prone skin. For the longest time, I didn’t have a skincare routine that I consistently followed. Now, as I have moved more into my adult life I have noticed that my skin had changed quite a bit due to more stress in my life and requires more of a skincare routine.
To begin with, I like using the Philosophy Purity Cleaner to get rid of any of the dirt or oil that has built up overnight. I like to put a pump of Purity on my Clarisonic, wet my face and let the Clarisonic do its job. The Purity cleanser leaves my skin feeling super clean without leaving it with any of the tightness that you can get from some other cleanser.
As of late, my skin has been a little drier than normal that I have been using the Pacifica Coconut Essence Hydro Mist to give my skin a little shot of hydration. After I let that soak into my skin I like to hit with some more hydration with a moisturizer. As of lately, I have really been enjoying the Philosophy Purity Moisturizer it is super lightweight but lets my skin feeling hydrated all day long without feeling super greasy.
To finishes off my routine, I use an eye cream that helps with the really bad undereye circles that I got from my momma. (LOVE YOU MOM) You got to love genes. However, I have been using the Sunday Riley Auto Correct which I have honestly have seen a true difference in my undereye circles. All in all, I am really enjoying my skincare routine and my skin has been responded supremely well. My skin is looking the best it has looked in a long time.
Mascara is one of my favorite beauty products to use hands down. I am always so excited when it come to pick out a mascara that I want to wear for the day. When it comes to buying mascara I tend to stick with drugstore brands. Not only are they a great price but I feel that the formula is just as good or even better than some of the high-end brands. I really do have my favorite high-end mascaras but I tend to reach for a drugstore mascara more than the high-end one. I have narrow down my favorite to my top three that are totally worth buying from the drugstore.
When I first bought this mascara and used it I could totally see why there was so much hype about this product.It made my lashes look longer, fuller and it did not clump at all.Which is everything that I want in a mascara regardless if it high-end or drugstore. I have repurchased the Lash Sensatioanl mascara multiple times and will keep buying it. I will always have this on hand in my makeup bag as a trusty go to. Also, what makes this a great mascara is that no matter what kind of make up you are wearing for the day, it goes. This is also great for days when you don’t want to wear any other make up but mascara just to make yourself look a little more put together. Great for when you get done with the gym and have some errands to do.
This mascara has been out for a little bit now and I feel like everyone was talking about it in the beauty community. The L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise is hands down one of THE best mascaras that I have tried. I also agree with a lot of other beauty lover that this is a great dupe for the Too Faced BTS mascara ,you are getting the same great look without the higher price tag. It makes my lashes look fuller, super long , does not clump or flake off. I can wear this all day and it still looks as good as when I first put it on. Even when you put on more than one coat of the mascara on my lashes still look just as amazing and not clumply. I could go one talking about this mascara for days if I wanted to do but if I where you I would run to the closest drugstore and pick yourself up one of these quick. Seriously go get your hands on this now.
Physisans Formula is a brand that I feel that is not on a lot of peoples radars. They really have some great products like the Organic Wear Fake Out mascara. I love the way this mascara curls and adds volume to my lashes. Also, it has 100% natural ingredients which is a plus. The only thing that is a negitive for me was that it did not give me that “Fake ” lash look which I am okay with it,which is probabley why I love this mascara so much. It gives me a very natual looking lash would is great for daytime looks or when you dont want to wear a lot of make up. You really can’t go wrong with this mascara.
What is your favorite drugstore mascara ? Do you prefer drugstore or high-end mascara?
