beauty bakerie cosmetics lip whips

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Hey loves, today I want to review this new liquid matte lipstick I grabbed up.... You might have heard of them by now as they are becoming instagram famous!! speaking of insta are you following me? If not you can do so here . So they call themselves the beauty bakerie and they're becoming wildly popular because of their lip whips... Being the avid liquid matte lover that I am I figured, why not?!?! I mean if they're supposed to be that good I really should get one, you know so I can review it for you guys!!! 

So I ordered one #yourewelcome!!! I have to say the staying power is next level, they actually have a lip whip remover! For example as I'm writing this I can still see hints of it and I applied it almost 24 hours ago, now that's just a hint of course. I would obviously reapply if I was going out... 

Lets talk about formula, its kinda sticky. It feels tacky at first and takes a while to dry, if you can live with that though you are in for a super long wearing lip...

I ordered the color Versailles, I know I know!!! What else do you expect from me! You know if they have a color similar to this, that's the one I'm going for. It's super amazing, matches my MAC whirl lip liner perfectly.
                                                                          No Flash

There is quite a few colors that I want to scoop but I think ginger snap is the next one that I have to get. There's a bunch of funky colors too if you're into that.

These retail for $20.00 and you can get them from the beauty bakerie website.

Stay tuned loves, I have a bunch more liquid hippies to review!!! 
Let me know, whats your favorite liquid lipstick brand?


Urban Decay naked ultimate basics

Friday, October 7, 2016

So I'm super excited about this palette!! It's an all matte palette and the packaging! O the packaging, seriously UD outdid themselves with this one!! Even if I didn't like the shadows I think I'd have to deem this a must for packaging alone! I know, I have issues  a problem....

This is apart of their 2016 holiday collection (I know it's crazy were already talking holiday's)  HAPPY HALLOTHANKSMAS!!!! 

Back to the packaging.... It's a rose gold compact with a sun burst design that has the Urban Decay logo. Inside there's a very huge mirror & a double-ended brush THROW THAT AWAY IMMEDIATELY  kidding, kinda...! I don't love it though! One side of the brush is a soft, densely packed eyeshadow brush I'm guessing they threw that in there for blending???!!!! The other side is a shorter bristled almost eyeliner brush, it can also be used to smoke out shadow on your lower or upper lash line. Just for sanity's sake get yourself MAC's 217 brush!!! The palette is a tad bit smaller than your average CD case. It holds a total of 12 eyeshadows that are 0.04 oz each.

The thing I love about the shades they picked is they aren't just "this seasons" shades. Think abh Modern Renaissance and carli bybel's bh palette.... Now those are both beautiful palettes but they are very 2016 and just to warm for me. These colors could go either way, there are a few I thought would be way to warm and they worked... You can use these for work, just a quick running around town look, use this for a girls night! You can really smoke this up with some eyeliner & a few coats of mascara!!!

I have seen a lot of people say that if you already have a ton of matte palettes you probably don't need this one. Well I actually don't have a ton of matte only palette's, in fact I only have the naked basics 2 palette. Now of course I have the lorac palette that are a mix of matte's and shimmers but as far as matte only this is only my second palette. So id my husband asks.... I really did need this one!!!! 

Even though this is a 2016 holiday piece, it will now be part of Urban Decay's permanent collection. The cost of this palette is $55.00!! Great Christmas wish list idea!!!!

All of these shades are up to par with UD's buttery soft formula and the color payoff is amaz!!! I actually was pleasantly surprised at how pigmented they were, in the pan they look a lot lighter. The staying power is also right on with what you would expect from UD. The reason this is worth mentioning is because some of the holiday palettes these companies bring out aren't the same formula's that they use all the time. It's like they're mass produced to get them out and the quality is lacking, that's not the case with this palette. 

Here are the shades
    • Blow — a light nude demi-matte (this one does have just a tiny bit of shimmer thats great for a highlight) 
    • Nudie — a soft pinkish nude matte
    • Commando — a light taupe-brown matte
    • Tempted — a pale brown matte
    • Instinct — a medium pink-taupe matte
    • Lethal — a reddish brown matte
    • Pre-Game — a pale yellow matte
    • Extra Bitter — a burnt orange matte
    • Faith — a medium warm brown matte
    • Lockout — a rich neutral brown matte
    • Magnet — a smoky gray matte
    • Blackjack — a warm black matte

I really really like this palette I've worn it for the past week straight, I gotta say, it's starting to feel like love!!!!!

What do you think? Is this something you will be scooping up? What are your favorite matte palettes? Don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss anything!!! 


Dose of colors matte liquid lipstick

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Hey everyone!! How's your week going?!? Busy busy for me... 
So, I wanted to do this review for you because I am going to go on kind of a liquid lipstick expose!

I have heard really good things about dose of colors and like most other Internet based companies it's super hard to find good swatches of the color you want. Sure the companies really true to give you what it looks like on lips but to be honest that's really no help because we all have different natural pigmentation in our lips. For example my sister and I are very similar (even skin color) but lipsticks look totally different on us...

Anyway I just went way off topic we are here to review the dose of colors liquid matte lippies. I bought both the colors stone & berry me. (they were having a labor day sale so I scooped up two)

Stone is totally one of those colors that I gravitate to naturally. Again though trying to distinguish this via instagram or google images was hard. Overall I'm super happy with me choice. It's a beautiful rosey nude color. 

Here I am wearing it (without lip liner) #don'tjudge

So totally a color that I am guaranteed to have at least 2-3 of in my makeup bag at all times, all while having about 37 others between my kit and my vanity!!! #sorrynotsorry

Then there's berry me also in my color wheel but not something I always grab for. I have to be in the mood and that mood usually hit around fall time.

Berry me is a perfect berry color, it's a plum color but on the brighter side. I do love a good berry lip for fall. Break out the pumpkin spice now!!! 

Here I am wearing berry me..

Honestly this picture doesn't do the color justice at all. It looks way more reddish then berry in the pic but it's that fabulous plum berry you've been searching for!!

Here is a picture of both without flash
 Berry Me on the left and Stone on the right.

Here's one with flash

It's worth mentioning that there are vegan, gluten & cruelty free.

Let's talk about texture because that's what you really want to know right?! If your lips are going to feel as though they are stiff and going to crack off or if they will feel like you are putting on a cream base...?
Well to answer, it really glides on pretty smooth. It's not runny, it didn't bleed as you can see with my lip liner free pics. It does take a while to dry completely, so not like all mattes on the market in that respect. I found that one swipe gave me full opacity.
The staying power is pretty great. It lasted for a full 7 hours on me and I had to scrub to completely get berry me off after only a few hours.
As far as price goes these are usually $18 which is pretty normal for a liquid matte, grabbing it with the labor day 20% off made the price so much sweeter.

What do you think? Have you tried dose of colors before? What is your favorite brand for liquid matte lippies? Don't forget to follow and leave me some love!!!


Permanent Eyebrows...!!! Wake up with Makeup by Debbie Flory

Sunday, September 18, 2016

Hey loves, this is going to be a lengthy one so lets dive in shall we? So for starter you've seen it, instagram is going crazy over it, it's on the forefront of every one's minds now... You know what I'm talking about, permanent eyebrows or semi permanent or microblading.... Everyone is talking about it and I have been considering it for a few years now. You all know how I feel about my eyebrows by now, seriously if it's a bad brow day don't even talk to me!!! lol joking, kinda! #sorrynotsorry 

Long story short, I wasn't really educated on microblading. I didn't realize that I would have to drop about $500 for it to last at the most a year just so that it would look like hair stokes (which I don't even love anyway!) Once I kinda figured that out I kinda gave up and figured I'd be living my life dip brow jar after dip brow jar, sure  #anastasiabeverlyhills would love me but it just gets old after a while ya know!?!?

Anyways, I was in Ulta Ocala a few weeks ago and I was looking at the new benefit brow kits and I hear these two girls talking about tattooed eyebrows.... I'm not joking I had to eavesdrop!!! So the one says to the other "I can't believe your eyebrows are tattooed" so I turn around, not really sure what I was expecting to see... Then she says "your mom really does good work, are hers the same?" So I have to walk over, I'm like I was listening to your conversation OMGoodness your eyebrows are tattooed? They look like they were the shape of the Anastasia beverly hills high arch stencil, I'm not joking!! I had to walk closer, I.WOULD.HAVE.NEVER.KNOWN! I swear her brows look like that of an instagram celebrity!!! She actually works at Ulta (well at benefits brow bar in Ulta) her name is Amanda, she's fabulous if you need a wax go see her.... So she gives me her Mom's card, I called that night for an appointment! I was not putting that off for one more day, her brows are that good! 

So let's get to the good stuff... Debbie is a makeup artist, she's been doing permanent makeup for 24 years now and she's a perfectionist. After all your face is like a walking business card for her, she wants your brows on point!!! She's even more passionate about brows then me and that's really saying something!!! 
So this is the what's what.. You go in, she draws on your brows and does nothing until you approve them. She drew my brows on so fast I was expecting to look in the mirror and not be happy. Boy was I wrong, she drew them on better then me and way faster! Wow, my brows had never been penciled in that good before! Here's a little before and after... You can also see more of her work here.

Now, that was immediately after and I actually love them.. She said they would shrink down and the best is yet to come. I want to go over the healing process with you. I took pics everyday of the initial healing process because I seriously looked and looked online but nobody broke it down for me. I'm very visual when it comes to things like this, so I decided to make my own. So I knew right off the bat because Debbie had told me they would be darker until they pealed and a little bigger for the first few days too. Oh and by the way this post will be the least makeup you have ever seen me wear, you're warned!!

Here's the day after we're going to call this day one.
So as you can see a little darker.. Let's move on to day two.
Still really dark but you can see them getting smaller. Here's day 3.

You can see they are starting to scab a bit, the scabs will be the most thick at the front because that's the biggest part. Here's day 4.

Up next is day 5 this is the first day a piece of the scab came off, so I have a few pics of this day. I should also mention when the scab comes off the color is lighter, the color it's supposed to be. It just looks different then the darker still scabbed parts.

Day 6 you can see a bit more peeling here.

Day 7 they look pretty good here.

Next up is day 8, they were probably the worst here. Again though, this is normal all part of the process to phenomenal brows.

Day 9 scab free, I think they are looking pretty good. I could wait any longer to tell you guys!!!

I can not tell you how happy it makes me to #wakeupwithmakeup. Not only that but I absolutely adore Debbie, she is one of the sweetest people I have ever meet. If you are in the area or even if your not, she's worth traveling for. Choosing someone to put something permanent on your face is huge, make your decision wisely. Actually 50% of her work are people who originally went to someone else and they were jacked up. She a color specialist. For me it was a million times worth it, I would do it again in a heartbeat. You might be wondering about the pain? She numbs you up really well and I didn't find it to be bad at all. I mean maybe a little uncomfortable but that's it. Her prices for this start at $250 and she runs a lot of specials. Really though, I spent that in brow products so again #worthit! Her favorite part is the touch up, she says they might come in as sisters but they will leave as twins. She likes to be a little more cautious when on your first visit until she sees how you heal and I for one really appreciate that. I go back in 6 weeks for the touch up! #excited They already look amazing though, in my opinion! You can go to her Facebook page here and check out more of her work.

Can't wait to show you my update! I will probably do that on youtube and link it here. Here's more pic's to give you a better comparison.

So happy and if you were even considering g doing this, my advice!?!? Go for it you won't regret it, just make sure you pick the right person (hint wake up with makeup by Debbie.) I will recommend her until i'm blue in the face, she's that good. Also if you were considering microblading make sure you research it. Debbie also has a good write up about it on her Facebook page so check that out. I'm so glad that I went into Ulta that day and saw Amanda because I can honestly it's changed my life and it's only been 10 days!
