Looxi Beauty Charmed Swatch!

Hi readers! This is going to be a quick post today because I finally hit 30! Happy birthday to me! I managed to grab Charmed when it was back in stock last week! This pan only cost $5 and is so versatile. Most people use this as a highlighter also! 

This is a pretty purple and duochrome into a greenish blue tint. This shade is super pretty and with it being vegan, it definitely appeals to me!

This is the card that came with the pan. The shade is in the middle of the card acting like one of the Os.
This is a beautiful closeup shot of Charmed. I really wanted to capture the shimmer and different colors in this pan.

For the swatch of this pretty shade, I did a finger and brush swatch! Enjoy!

I took the swatch with flash enabled so you can see the color shift. You can see how pretty the shift is with this eyeshadow.

There you guys go! I hope you love it as much as I have! Xo!

Pretty Vulgar On Point Liquid Eyeliner Review!

Hi friends! Today I’m going to review the Pretty Vulgar On Point liquid eyeliner. I got this eyeliner that usually retails for around $22 for $6. This was part of their 20K giveaway. The site was glitchy and was a terrible experience. The eyeliner came yesterday and this is the second time I’m using it and it seems like the pen is already dried out. I’m not too happy but I can’t always review things that I like and things don’t go as planned. 

I’m going to show you the box, the pen, and my waterproof test.

Here is the front of the package. The packaging is cute. It is 0.034 fluid ounces.

The back of the box states this is not to be applied on your waterline or your contact lenses. Wtf? It has the ingredient list and that this is shade #26, or Top Secret. This has the distribution information and that it is cruelty-free.

This is the top of the box. It describes the formula as a quick drying, smudge proof, and color rich formula. The website is located at the bottom of the paragraph.

This is the eyeliner pen. It has a pretty ink pen quality to it and the gold top comes off. This pen is all hard plastic and feels durable. 

This is the pen applicator. It is very flexible and has a nice felt quality. Be careful with how much this flexes because it can be problematic if you are just starting out with liquid eyeliner.

This is how the pen handles on my hand. It does have a nice color but as you can see, it isn’t a consistent pigment with the lines. There were also some hiccups and drag. 

The next thing up with this was the question of this being waterproof. It never stated it was but as a personal criteria, I need things to be waterproof! Below, is my waterproof test.

I took the eyeliner swatch from before and ran it under my sink. It didn’t fall apart under the water which was a good sign. 

After I took my hand out of the water and rubbed it with my finger…

This was the end result. As you can see, this just isn’t waterproof. It made me so sad. 

Okay readers, this eyeliner does the job. However, I feel this product could be so much better. It could have less drag, consistency in the pigment could be better. If this was waterproof, that would have made me a happier customer. Xo

Juvia’s Place The Zulu Palette Swatches!

Hi friends! Sorry I updated so late today! My birthday was on Thursday and my mom wanted to take my daughter and I out for the day. It was a blast 🙂 we just got back a bit ago and I made dinner and completely realized that I didn’t update this awesome palette on here today! This is the new Juvia’s Place The Zulu Eyeshadow palette. This palette was on sale for $17.99 which is a steal for these limited edition colors. Let’s have a closer look.

These palettes always have such a celebration of heritage and lovely design. The palette is pretty compact. 

The back of the palette is always blank and the information is on the boxes. This box has a small blurb celebrating the Ndebele people, the ingredients, company information and that this product is cruelty-free.

These are the shades! There are six bright matte shades and three shimmer shades. I am such a fan of bright colors I needed this in my collection. The one reason I didn’t jump on the Naked Heat palette by Urban Decay is because they didn’t include a yellow. I just wish the shades impressed me more.

For the swatches, I did them by row so there are three shades in each row.

This first row is all matte shades that are very pigmented. They didn’t have names so I’ll just describe them by sjade. The bright orange reminds me of Sugarpill’s Flamepoint but you can’t go wrong with so many oranges. The yellow is very vibrant and pigmented. Yet again, it reminds me of Buttercupcake by Sugarpill. This last shade is a burnt orange that is very pigmented and a nice shade to work wirh.

The middle row is my favorite in this palette. The first shade is a bright almost matte turquoise shade with a green tint to it. It blends very well and used it in a look on Saturday. The middle is a shimmery lime green with sparkle. As always, Juvia’s Place has amazing shimmer shades. The last shade reminds me of the ocean. It is a bright blue with silver sparkle. This is so bright and pretty. 

The last row has beautiful shades in it. The first one is a shimmer shade. It has a rose base with a lot of gold sparkle in it. The next shade is a bright matte red shade. I really enjoy the texture and shade of this usual red. It is bright. The last shade is a pretty matte purple that blends quite well. 

This palette is a steal for the price and the color pay out. The pans are a decent size and Juvia’s always delivers a decent product. Xo

Ipsy June Glambag! 

Hi friends! I hope you had a good weekend! Today I’m going to review my Ipsy Glambag for this month! 

The Glambag this month is a fabric bag with lips on it and a little card that focuses on how to make your looks bold and loud!

These are the five items that were sent to me this month. There’s an eyeliner, mascara, lip and cheek pigment, skin cleaner and eyeshadow. It was a nice mix that in a pinch I could make a look with.

The first product is from NYX.  This is their Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflé in shade Cocoa Bean. I did take an arm swatch and lip swatch for you of this. This is a nude brown that you can use for contouring or a light brown lip shade. 

Here is a quick shot of all the ingredients, shade name and where it was manufactured. 

This is how the applicator looks. It is a soft diamond shape that has a hold in the middle to evenly distribute product to your entire lip. This smells faintly of vanilla and is a very smooth formula.

This is the quick lip swatch of Cocoa Bean. It is a very warm brown that adds a subtle hint of color to your lips. I apologize for the look in this photo. It was pretty early and I wasn’t awake yet. 😂

This is the Maxlash Volumizer Mascara by Doucce. This mascara is a true black and the wand helps coat every lash that you have.

As you can see, there is a lot of texture to be had from the wand. It is pretty intense and I am digging this mascara so far. I have it on in my lip swatch picture of the NYX shade above.

The third item is an eyeshadow single from Luna in the shade Jace. This is a vegan and cruelty-free shade! Yay! I like how this actually comes in a box so it prevents being broken.

Here on the back of the box they have the website, shade name, distribution information, and ingredients. 

This is Jace out of the box looking completely pretty. This shade is a dusty rose shade that is matte and a light color. This would be nice for a soft summer look to add a pop of color. 

The back of the eyeshadow has the name of the shade and the website to grab more products from.

I’ve been using this Skyn Glacial Face Wash since Friday and I love it. This has white willow bark in it with a bunch of other ingredients to help purify, soothe and detoxify your pretty face. 

The back of the product has the ingredient list, a how-to use, and the company website.

The last product is from Makeup Forever. This is their Aqua XL Eye Pencil in M-10 Matte Black. 

The back of the product has a quick blurb about Makeup Forever and their mission statement, an ingredient list and where you can find this product. 

The inside of the sample pack has a preview of all 20 shades in the line, states that it is waterproof, ultra gliding and has an intense color. In my arm swatches, I did a swatch of this and it stayed on my arm, completely unsmudged from about 12:00 PM until the next morning at around 8:00 AM. They don’t lie about it being waterproof and smudgeproof!

The last picture is of my arm swatches. They are all labeled by what product they are and there is a finger and brush swatch of the Luna eyeshadow. Enjoy!

The top swatch was of the NYX Cocoa Bean shade. It is very subtle but totally can pass a bronzer. The next swatch is of Jace by Luna. I seriously love how subtle this shade is. The last is the Makeup Forever eyeliner. Look at how black this eyeliner is. 

There you have it loves! This is the June Glambag in all of its glory! Xo

Tarte and Sephora Birthday Exclusive Reward!

Hi friends! My birthday is in six days and then I kiss my 20s goodbye. When I did my last Sephora purchase I decided to cash in some points and grab my birthday gift. They had the Fresh skincare set, a Jack Black skincare set and this new Tarte blush and lipstick mini that I’ve never seen before. I was intrigued and chose this cute guy.

Look at how cute this little duo is! Both are very light shades that compliment every skin tone. 

I took a bunch of photos of this cute bundle and yes the shades are exclusive to the birthday set. 

The back of the box shows that this set is vegan and cruelty-free! Yay! It has an ingredient list of both the blush and the lipstick and their names!

This was a pretty shot of both products. My vanity is proving to be a nice place to take detailed photos. 

Now for the swatches. I did a brush and finger swatch of the blush and a lip swatch of the lipstick. Enjoy!

Here is the arm swatch of the blush. If you notice, it is very subtle when a brush is used. 

And now for the lip swatch!

Please excuse the discontent on my face. It was in the middle of a year wave and I wasn’t too happy. Haha. This shade is a darker nude that works great with my skin tone. 

There you all have it! I enjoyed both products and this nude lipstick actually doesn’t look awkward like some of them do on my skin. Xo!
