Camila Cabello x L'Oréal Havana Collection: Review

Image
Camila Cabello is one of my favorite artists, so I was obviously very excited when she announced her collaboration with L'Oréal for a collection inspired by her hometown and hit song, Havana. In today's post I'm going to be sharing my thoughts on what I tried from the collection! Enjoy!

Single Eyeshadow // $9.99 each

When I first saw a picture of this collection, I was immediately drawn to the single eyeshadows. These are the first I've tried from the brand, but I've heard a lot of great things about L'Oréal's eyeshadow formula in the past. 

The rose gold/bronze shade is called "Oh-Na-Na" (I love that name!). The texture of the shadow feels almost like a hybrid between a cream and powder, even though it is technically marketed as a powder shadow. The formula actually reminds me a lot of Colourpop's Super Shock Shadows, which are my all-time favorite single shadows. 

"Oh-Na-Na" has a really vibrant metallic finish that stays on all day. I…

☆★WET N WILD ZODIAC COLLECTION: REVIEW☆★

Image
Today I'm going to be sharing my thoughts on a few products I tried from the new Wet n Wild Zodiac Collection. Enjoy!
MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder // $6.99

Out of the entire zodiac collection, this is the product I was first drawn to. I never tried a loose highlighter before, but I actually really like it more than I thought I would.  The product can get very messy if you aren't careful, but it's worth the extra precautions for the shine it gives. If you prefer to have a natural glow, this highlight probably isn't for you since it has such an icy finish with a strong champagne reflect. It also has visible flecks of glitter in it, which I personally love. I don't wet my brush either - it gives such a strong glittery metallic finish right away. 
I use the Real Techniques Setting Brush, which is my all-time favorite for highlighting. It picks up the perfect amount of the product and works great to blend out cream, liquid, powder, and now also loose powder formulas. 

BENEFIT PRECISELY MY BROW PENCIL: REVIEW

Image
In todays post, I'm going to be sharing my review on the Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil. I received this product courtesy of Influenster for reviewing purposes - this post is not sponsored and all opinions are my own, as always. Enjoy!

I have the shade 4.5 Medium, which matches me perfectly and is suitable for medium to dark hair with neutral undertones. This is one of the newest shades added to the range, along with 3.5 Neutral, which is best for medium to neutral toned hair. There is a shade for everyone ranging from platinum blonde to dark brown/black hair. 
I really don't do much with my brows on a daily basis, the most I use is a brow gel (my go-to is the Essence Make Me Brow Gel Mascara) or just a dark brown eyeshadow to fill in some sparse areas. I never used a brow pencil like this before, so I really didn't know how much practice it was going to take to figure out how to use it. 

Luckily, this product is actually very beginner friendly and was easy to use on the fi…

Happy National Lipstick Day! Today I'm going to be sharing an updated list of my favorite lipsticks! If you want to check out my post from last year's National Lipstick Day click here. - Enjoy!
High EndKylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick // $17.00
This is has been one of my most consistently-used lipsticks since I bought it almost 2 years ago. Candy K is the perfect everyday lip shade for me. I have actually used mine so much that it's almost empty! Once it completely runs out, I will definitely be repurchasing this shade and trying new ones!

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick // $24.00
Out of every lipstick I mention on this list, this one is the most long-wearing and budge-proof. It always lasts all day, no matter the circumstances. Since it is so long-wear and matte, it can make your lips feel dry, so I would recommend moisturizing your lips thoroughly before you apply and after you remove it at the end of the day. It also has an amazing applicato…

FLOWER BEAUTY: LIP PRODUCTS REVIEW

Image
In today's post I'm going to be sharing my review on 3 different lip products I've tried from Flower Beauty. Enjoy!

Petal Pout Lip Color // $8.99

I have tried so many different lipsticks through the years - especially from the drugstore - but this formula is one of my absolute favorites. It wears all day long, which can be hard to find with traditional lipstick bullet formulas. It has a matte finish, but is so comfortable on the lips. I would say its most comparable to an old favorite of mine, the Clinique Long Lasting Soft Matte Lipstick, which has a very similar formula and wear time (unfortunately Clinique discontinued this a few months ago). The shade I have is called Berry-More which is so cute since the brand was created by Drew Barrymore. 

The packaging also feels so much more luxurious and high-end than any other product from the same price range and above. This has been one of my most used lipsticks over the past few months!
