April Favorites

Happy May! April is out of here but here is what I was loving all month long!

  • Formula No. 45 Coffee Scrub: bought at World Market. Amazing! Exfoliating and leaves you soft and smooth, plus the vanilla makes it smell great!
  • Gucci Guilty Black: rediscovered this month. It’s an oldie but a goodie!
  • Naked Petite Heat: been loving this palette since I bought it! The colors are perfectly pigmented and gorgeous. They blend well and this palette is extremely versatile!
  • The Ordinary the Buffet: I can’t say enough good things about this product. See my post on The Ordinary for deets.
  • Cover FX highlighter drops: these are insane! A little goes a long way! If you are a highlighter person these are for you. High shine!
  • Naked Skin Concealer: lightweight but does the job and has a highlighting effect. Love!
  • Morphe blending brush: the only eye brush I’ve been using! Blends shadows to perfection! Fluffy and feels good, can’t beat the price either.
  • Fenty Beauty matte lipstick in freakle fiesta. Great color, love the finish, goes great with the Naked Petite Heat!

What were your April favs?

Live it. Love it. Style it.

I found some amazing coffee table books that I will read not just display! Also a major bowl for soup, cereal, noodles, just about anything! I love big bowls to eat out of! And lastly a new piece for my almost bar cart (inside joke see my bar cart post) and a few decorative knick knacks.

I was very happy with my finds!

Do you have any good hauls?

Live it. Love it. Style it.

Mid Week Haul #2

Bringing you a mini haul this hump day. I was shopping for birthday gifts and I stumbled on a few things for me too!

I just received my Ulta catalog and there were a few items I had to check out.

I ended up purchasing the Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat (I’m in love with this palette!), a backup Perversion Mascara, Morphe blending brush, and ELF highlighter brush. The Vice lipstick was a freebie for purchasing a certain amount in Urban Decay products.

Products I Regret Buying

Happy March! I’m kicking off the month with products I regret buying. These are all beauty items and in some way shape or form they just didn’t work for me.

Now, don’t get me wrong I have tried a variety of products from these brands and they are all amazing, these particular products just didn’t do it for me.

Everybody takes an L every now and then and these are losers for me:

  1. Shea Moisture Mattifying Primer: not mattifying, too thick, it’s like face lotion (not good)
  2. Boscia White Charcoal Mattifying Makeup Setting Spray: you end of with white specks on your face and if they get on your lashes and eyebrows you can hang it up.
  3. Urban Decay Naked Smoky: I was being bougie and wanted the next installment in the Naked palette series. This palette is fine but the colors are not regulars for me. I don’t reach for this palette often.
  4. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush: Again I was jumping on the bandwagon and this blush is not one I reach for often. The color payoff is a little chalky for my taste.
  5. Dose of Colors liquid lipstick in Merlot and Berry Me: these get very drying as you wear them. The color payoff is nice but the product doesn’t last long these broke down relatively quick, however, I think Dose of Colors have reformulated since I bought these.
