Shayla x Colourpop Perception Palette & C’mon Sis Lipstick

Recently Ive said that I would not buy another darn eyeshadow palette! I have so many palettes and I can admit that they all almost look the same! Yep, I said it! But when I saw the MakeupShayla and Colourpop collaboration, it was a no brainer! I knew it had to have it for a few reasons! 1, I wanted to see Shayla win and 2, the palette had all of my favorite colors in one palette!! It’s perfection! 

I honestly didnt expect these shadows to be soooo smooth and soft! They feel and perform like luxury shadows, such a pleasant surprise! Especially for the price point. This palette is only $23!

There are three lipsticks in the collaboration collection, I only purchased one. I purchased “C’mon Sis”, this lipstick was the right choice for me, as I love pinky nudes.

This is the look I created today using the palette and the lipstick! Nice wearable everyday look. Save $5 on your Order from Colourpop! https://www.talkable.com/x/JNCXWZ

Cut Crease Stamper!! Cut Crease in Seconds!!

Finally got my hands on the cutcrease stamping tool. I ordered it from Amazon.  https://amzn.to/2Lj3QB0

Its totally made of silicon for easy use and easy clean up! Using the tool is very easy, all you do is coat the tool with a full coverage concealer, position it on your eyelid, then press it firmly to your lid to ensure that the concealer transfers to your lid. I used LA Girl Pro Conceal concealer as my cutcrease base.

Once the concealer is on the lid, gently blend the edges… then apply lid color of your choice. Here is the result of my first time using this stamper.

Great for beginners who are not yet comfortable at creating a cutcrease using only brushes. Also good for client use as well, makes for a speedy application process and it still looks very skilled and neat!

Very easy to clean, just wipe it off with a makeup remover wipe or a form of wet wipe!

Covergirl 2018 Spring Collection

Im so excited to share this new products with you! Im so proud to be among the firsts to receive these new products. But let me start by saying that Covergirl is one of my favorite drugstore brands. Covergirl was the brand of my very first foundation, it was their Clean foundation in the color “Tawny”. I picked that color be thats the color that Tyra Banks would wear on the commercials and in Teen magazine!

This package was packed with all the new 2018 product launches. These liquid lipsticks are AMAZING! The coverage is very nice and they are super long lasting! They each retail for $6.99.

The Katy Kat Lipgloss packages are so cute!! Not to mention that the gloss is really nice! Drugstore makeup has really come along way!! These lipglosses are very comparable to highend department store glosses!!

“Back Talk” Eye & Face Palette – Urban Decay Cosmetics

So! Here’s whats new with Urban Decay Cosmetics! “BackTalk“!! 

Has there ever been a better or more important time to give some serious clapback? Show your unstoppable femme power with Backtalk Palette, a go-anywhere, do-anything kit inspired by Backtalk, our No. 1 selling, cult-favorite Vice Lipstick shade.

Like two palettes in one, this travel-ready case holds eight nude-mauve, soft berry and muted rose Eyeshadow shades on one side and four coordinating shades of blush and highlighter on the other. Forget about being a lady and give ’em what they deserve.

This trend has never been hotter, and these shades are universally flattering on all skin tones. Feeling pretty in pink? Add 3 Sheets, a satin pinky peach shade, to lids, while highlighting cheekbones with our crazy-shimmery highlighter, Party Foul. Or, get deep-blending Shade, a fuchsia satin, into the crease, and finish off your look with Cheap Shot, a medium pink-nude highlighter. No matter the vibe, Backtalk has your eyes and cheeks speaking volumes.

Backtalk Palette takes no prisoners—much like your attitude—and fits 12 gorgeous pigments into one sleek palette. A double-sided, removable mirror acts as a divider between the Eyeshadow shades and the blush and highlighter shades. Our shadows are just as advanced as the packaging: Every shade features our proprietary Pigment Infusion System™ for velvety pigments that blend easily, stay rich and last for hours. Now, go get ’em!

Shades included:

HI-FI SHINE LIP GLOSS Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss – Urban Decay

So here’s Whats NEW with Urban Decay Cosmetics!!

Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss is ultra-shiny, glides on cushiony-soft and provides long-lasting wear that’s comfortable, not tacky.

Laced with vitamin E and peppermint oil, our hydrating formula leaves lips feeling nourished, has an immediate plumping effect and comes in a yummy vanilla-mint flavor. And wait until you see our lineup; whatever gloss frequency you’re on, we’ve got you covered. Tune in to everything from blaring brights to soft neutrals in four different effects—metallic, holographic, cream and sheer cream.

Finally, a gloss that is sexy and comfy at the same time! Hi-Fi Shine Lip Gloss delivers ultra-shiny color that won’t feather or bleed and instantly makes lips look plumper. Our shade range is stacked with sheer, sparkly and pigment-rich options to amp up your look.

Our wide range of chart-topping shades includes everything from soft to loud. As expansive as this lineup is, the shades look great on every skin tone. We’re hooked on the holographic shades (like SPL and Snapped) and Naked (a must-have neutral). We’re also obsessed with Obsessed! It’s the perfect universal light pink.

The sleek, modern component is clear, so you can easily pick your shade out of a handbag. The iridescent, metallized frame makes the gloss look like it’s floating inside. Added bonus: Because the tube is flat, it fits perfectly in your pocket. The flexible, flocked-silicone paddle applicator is the newest technology and allows you to swipe on a generous, even layer of gloss. No need to double dip (but please do if you want!).

Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

Fill Weight: 7.0 ml / 0.23 fl oz

These retail for $20 each and can be purcahsed from Ulta and Sephora.
These are the prettiest glosses I’ve ever laid eyes on!! These are total must haves!!
 
Im wearing both “Fuel” & “Goldmine”.

My Current Favorite Eyelashes

False eyelashes are a MUST for me, I love the boost of glam that wearing lashes provides. They can make any makeup look way more put together. 

Im not sure if you noticed, but I love thick dramatic lashes! The lashes that I would prefer are on the pricier side and can hard on the budget at times. So, I have found alternatives to the voluminous luxe lashes that we love!

My favorite lash brands are Red Cherry, Ardell, and I love generic Mink Lashes from Amazon and eBay.
