Ulta Sale Mini Haul

As you may or may not know recently Ulta had a sale on many of their brands products. I couldn’t resist to pop in and see what I could find. I thought I would share my finds.

1. Ulta Mineral Foundation
I don’t ever use mineral foundation on myself but I thought I would try it over my normal foundation. I love foundations. It’s my obsession so I’m super excited to try this.

2. Ulta Eyeliners
These eyeliners were literally one dollar and I thought that was awesome so I bought them both. One in black and one in brown.

3. Ulta Single Eyeshadow
I have used these before and really like them. I picked up the color Organza which is like a brownish purple. Probably a horrible description but you get the picture. This was only $2!

Drugstore Haul

Sometimes when I’m a little stressed I have a really bad habit of buying more makeup. I know it’s not healthy but it makes me feel better. The other day I had one of those moments so I popped into Walgreens to check out the makeup section and ended up coming out with more than I planned. Although some of the purchases I’ve been wanting to try for a while. I hope you enjoy.

1. Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
I have been wanting to try this concealer for a while but haven’t because I really love my NYX concealer. But this concealer is highly recommended by Essiebutton and a bunch of other YouTubers so I really wanted to try this. Maybe I’ll do a review on it soon!

2. Jordanna Eyeliner in White
I’ve seen some really cute makeup looks using white eyeliner and while in Walgreens I thought hey why not try one. So this was bought.

3. Maybelline Color Elixer
This is another Essiebutton recommendation. (can you tell who my favorite YouTuber is) I bought the color Captivating Carnation. Its a dark shade of pink and I think it’s just so pretty. It was hard to choose just one color but I really love this one.

4. Andrea Individual Lashes
Just your normal everyday individual lashes. This is just a repurchase but I really love this kind and they are semi permanent so can last up to 3 weeks.

5. Rimmel Lip Pencils
Is it weird that until now I’ve never owned any lip pencils. I have really thin lips and someone suggested I try these to give my lips a fuller effect. I bought the colors Eastend Snob and Indian pink.

Hope you enjoyed! What your favorite drugstore product? XOXO

Made in the U.S.A🇺🇸

Happy July 4th! I hope everyone is having a lovely day. I thought I would share my outfit with all of you real quick. My shirt is from Brandy Mellville, jeans Forever 21, and shoes from Target. Also my bracelet is actually something from my grandmas closet so I’m not sure where it’s from. I hope everyone who celebrates it had a wonderful 4th of July!

Summer Skincare Series: Toner

This week let’s talk Toner. I’ve only been using Toner for maybe 4 months because I never knew the why I needed it in my routine. So today I will share the benefits of it and my experience with the one I use which is the Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner. Let’s get started!

Toner comes after cleanser. Sometimes right after you cleanse your face still feels oily or unclean. That’s where toner comes in. Toner restores the PH balance in your face. It immediately helps clear and brighten your face.

I have been using the Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner. I like this because it doesn’t strip my face or make it dry and tight. When choosing a toner always make sure it’s alcohol free. Toners with alcohol strip your face and that’s not good. You need some of the natural oils on your face. Hope you enjoyed! What’s your favorite toner? XOXO

Hair Product Review: Kimble Beauty Shine Serum and Silk ELastics.

I recently have started using this Shine Serum by Kimble beauty and I can honestly say that I love it. Sometimes my hair can be very dry and lack any luster at all and this stuff instantly brought my hair back to life. So I figured that I should let all of you beautiful people know about this product. So lets get started!

What it claims: They claim that this is the secret to beautiful and glamorous hair and to add shine without making your hair look oily or greasy.It is also supposed to prevent frizz and fly always.

My Take: I think that it holds up to what it claims to do. Since I live in such a hot state its easy to get oily at the roots and sometimes adding serum like this can make it worse even if you have dry hair. But the Kimble Beauty Shine Serum is perfect. I have worn it out all day and there has been no signs of oiliness or frizz. I also wanted to comment on how great this stuff smells. It is infused with Brazilian nut and acai berries which im not sure if that is what makes it smell so great or not. Overall I highly suggest this awesome serum.

The next thing that I wanted to talk about is the Kimble Beauty Silk Elastics. I have literally not used anything else because I love these so much! They don’t get tangled in my hair and are extremely sturdy. So if you need new elastic check these out. XOXO

Summer Skincare Series: Cleanser

I’ve decided to do a series of post that have to do with skincare. I will post these once a week. I’m really excited for this because I love skincare almost as much as makeup. This is because I believe skincare is so important. I think it sets the tone for your makeup. I always change up my skincare for the summer. So recently I did just that.

Today we will start with Cleanser. Cleanser is super important. It helps prevent bacteria, dirt and pollutants from entering your body. A good cleanser should clear all of the dirt out without stripping your face.

Now on to choosing a cleanser. For me I like something smooth with almost a milky consistency that turns into a foam. I find that it leaves my skin really moisturized after. When choosing a cleanser make sure you choose one that won’t strip the skin. This is because some oils are healthy for your skin.

Lastly is the cleanser I have started using during the summer time. Like I said I always change my skincare routine for summer because my skin varies from season to season. Recently I really needed to because my skin was just horrible. On recommendation from a friend of mine I have been using Boots Botanic Gentle Cleansing Cream. I love this stuff. It removes the oils without leaving my skin stripped. It’s also a brightener and can help bring dull skin back to life. Boots is actually a British brand but for all us American gals we can purchase this at Target for $7.99. Which is a great price to me. I hope you enjoyed! Let me know your favorite cleanser! XOXO

Spotlight Review: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation

I recently did a summertime favorites and mentioned the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in my post. In all honesty that post didn’t do it any justice because this stuff is amazing.

The Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation makes you feel like your not wearing any foundation at all. It’s so light and smooth. I adore it on these hot Florida days. I rarely ever have to touch it up and if I do it’s minimal. I have naturally pale skin and this foundation has SPF which I do like in some cases especially if I know that I’ll be spending long periods of time outside.

Let’s talk coverage. I would say this foundation is light to medium and is build able. Most people don’t need full coverage anyways. I’ve noticed it covers all my redness which is something I struggle with. As for blemishes it does cover but I touch it up with concealer.

Overall the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation is great. It can be a little pricy at 48 dollars but I think it’s worth the money. Bobbi Brown is my favorite makeup artist and she creates some of my favorite products. I’m such a huge fan! Even if you’re not looking for a foundation try out some other Bobbi Brown product and I promise you won’t be disappointed. What is your favorite foundation? Hope you enjoyed! XOXO- Jessica
