Charlotte Tilbury Haul

Charlotte Tilbury

I recently had my first purchase of Charlotte Tilbury products. I was at Nordstrom and noticed a new makeup counter. I have been dying to try some Charlotte Tilbury products so I had to go over and take a look. I started off simple and just got lip and cheek products this time. I am not a blush girl but while I was there the makeup artist working at the counter was dying to put this blush on me and ever since then I have been hooked. I am obsessed with this blush and the color of it. Then I wanted to find a perfect nude lipstick shade, I am so picky trying to find the right nude, and this one is the perfect shade for me. It also is such a great formula and feels so good on the lips. Then I told her that I was a gloss girl and she recommended two glosses for me, I love these glosses so much they are the perfect colors for me. I can not wait to try more Charlotte Tilbury products.

Blush: Ecstasy

Lipstick: Nude Kate

Lipgloss: Seduction & Ibiza Nights

MAC – Strobe Cream

MAC

Strobe Cream

This should be a staple item in everyone’s makeup collection! You can wear this either under makeup or without makeup and it will give your face the perfect glow. There are many products that do this, but so far this is the one I found to give the most noticeable glow on your skin.

October Favorites

October Favorites

October has been so much fun. I went to New York City many times this month, for day trips and concerts. Many times to the city means many adventures. These are some of my favorite things I picked up this month. Besides that, nothing else exciting happened this month, I have been busy with back to school.

Apparal

Doc Martens – Magdalena

These shoes are perfect. Comfortable. Just enough of a heel to give a bit of height. They look sleek but still a bit grungy. So many good things to say about these.

Topman x Nick Grimshaw

Love this shirt is is so soft. I love Nick Grimshaw, I wanted to get many things from his collection with Topman but this was my my favorite piece from the collection.

Halsey Tour Shirt

Makeup

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – Moonstone

The perfect shade for my skin tone, I don’t know why I did not own this before now.

Kat Von D – Ink Liner

Same thing with this liner, I don’t know why I did not own this before now. This liner is so black and glides on so easily. I don’t think I will ever use anything else ever again for a wing liner.

Music

5 Seconds Of Summer – Sounds Good Feels Good

Yes, I am a fan of 5SOS.. they went on tour with One Direction for two years so seeing them all the time made me start to like them. I liked their last album and I like this album too, don’t know what one I like better yet. I love a song off this album that is a target edition bonus track “The Story Of Another Us”. Besides that my top five off this album are “Jet Black Heart”. “Waste The Night”, “Castaway”, “Vapor”, & “Permanent Vacation”.

Events

IMG_2238

My best friend and I are very much obsessed with Halsey. We went to her show at Webster Hall. Not only is she beyond talented, she is such a genuine person and you can really tell that she cares about her fans. She put all of herself into her music and performing and you can tell that by watching one of her concerts. Anddd, she liked my picture I posted on Instagram from that night, so she made my year;). I can not wait to see her at Madison Square Garden next year.

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Champagne Glow Palette

BECCA
Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Champagne Glow Palette

Featuring Champagne Pop x Jaclyn Hill

Pearl

Champagne Pop

Blushed Copper

Purchase Pallet Here!

It’s no secret that that BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed is my favorite makeup product ever. Hilighters are my favorite makeup product, and the formula of the BECCA Pressed Powder is my favorite formula of any makeup product that I have used so far. So put those two things together and we have my favorite product on the market right now. So to hear that they were coming out with a holiday pallet with a new shade and two limited edition shades made me beyond excited. All of the shades are gorgeous and unique. The new shade Pearl may be my new favorite shade, I am very pale so I was happy to see a stark white shade. It will be perfect for the holiday season, just looking at the shade and swatching it instantly reminds me of an Ice Princesses. I want to buy a full powder of this but then only have it in the Poured version right now. Champaign Pop, the limited edition shade that Jaclyn Hill created is the perfect shade for all skin tones. I wrote a post about it when it came out here. Blushed Copper, the other limited edition shade is gorgeous. Being a very pale girl I can not wear this as a hilighter, it will look beautiful on darker skin tones, but I will definitely wear this shade as an eyeshadow. I am very happy with this pallet and I think it would be a perfect gift for any makeup lover for the holiday season. Get them quick before they run out, it is a limited edition pallet.

Too Faced – Soleil Matte Bronzer

Soleil Matte Bronzer

Milk Chocolate

Purchase here!

I am not much of a bronzer girl, I am very pale and never had a use for bronzer in my makeup collection. But, I love this bronzer (I mean personally don’t use it as a bronzer) but I love this product. I use it more as a contour because it is a matte shade. Also, of course the smell, it smells so good (like chocolate) when you open it, the smell doesn’t stay on the face so no worries you won’t go around smelling like chocolate.

MAC – Studio Waterweight Foundation

MAC

Studio Waterweight Foundation

Purchase here!

There is a reason MAC is my favorite brand, I am never disappointed with the products they release. I am completely obsessed with this new foundation that they just released. As soon as you put it on your skin you immediately feel that it is so creamy and feels so moisturizing. It skinks into the skin very well and it looks like the foundation is not even there and leaves beautiful natural glow to the skin. This foundation is definitely in trend for the “strobing” “glowing” and “natural look” makeup that is happening at the moment. Everyone who loves a natural light look for foundation needs to get their hands on this foundation. This bottle is also very nice with a easy to use eye-dropper feature. (My shade is NW13)

Vamplify Collection

Hyper-Fabulous

Purchase here!

I loveeee this product and was so excited when I saw that this collection was coming out. I saw it online and it said it was a high pigment gloss and that is exactly what it is. I have been dying to find a high pigment, thick, glossy gloss. Wouldn’t I love to get this in every color… but I picked this shade I love it, perfect for fall (now sold out but they have many more options). You can see in the pictures below how it is super glossy, so if you are looking for that, this is the lipgloss for you.

February Favorites

IMG_1826

WOW! I can’t believe that it is already the end of February. That went by so fast. I have been extremely busy with school this month because I had my midterm week and all my classes announced a final paper. So, I have not purchased that much this month. I went to the drug store once, I got my hair done, got those boots online on a good boots sale and the sweater is from H&M. I have really been into writing this month so a personal essay may be coming soon.


Beauty

| 1 | L’Oréal Infallible Series

Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray

Pro-Matte Foundation (Mine is in Classic Ivory)

Pro-Matte Powder (Mine is in Porcelain)

I usually don’t buy drug store products because my skins is super sensitive and oily, so my face and drug store products always become an issue.. but this line is amazing. It is definitely high quality, the setting spray, the foundation and the powder is as good as my high end products. Would definitely re-purchase.

Skin Care

| 2 | Aveda

Botanical Kinetics Energizing Eye Cream

Hand Relief Moisturizing Cream

This is a high end product but it is so worth it. I got them at my local hair salon that I go to. The eye cream I just got a few days ago so I will let you know how it is, but I can already tell so far so good. The hand cream on the other hand I have used every single day this month. It is so worth it if you have dry hands from the winter. It is perfection, I can not say enough good things about this hand cream.

Apparel

| 3 | Boohoo – Pointed Chelsea Boots

Chelsea boots are my favorite style of boots and I have been wanted one with a pointed toe. I received an email that there was a sale on shoes on boohoo. I got them. Love them. So Much. Wear them all the time.

| 4 | H&M+ V-Neck Sweater

I saw this sweater on tumblr last month and had to find it. It is H&M+ so it was perfect for me. It is such a classic sweater and so big and comfy.

Music

I did not buy the actual cd yet, but I got it on iTunes.. Reflection by Fifth Harmony!! This album is so fun, that is the only way that I can describe it. Every single song I want to dance around my room and pretend that it’s now Sixth Harmony because I obviously think I have joined the group.

Another album that came out recently was Leave Your Love – EP by Tyler Carter. I love it so much. Love him so much.

Also, I went to a Chris Brown and Trey Songz concert this past weekend so I have been listening to them non-stop.

Songs

I have been listening to this cover ever since it has come out. Everything Ed touches turns into gold.
