My life CHANGING skin care routine

Hey guys, so this is a super exciting post for me because these products have most defiantly changed my life. Ok, so if you've been here a while you already know I'm super oily ( by oily I mean essential oils). If you're new here, stick around you'll see just how oily I am... Acne has never really been a problem for my I mean I would get the occasional hormonal chin breakout but that was about as far as it went, other then when I was pregnant with my first daughter, that ish was crazy! Fast forward to me turning 30, it's like world war 3 broke out on my face.... Seriously, everyday I'd wake up and it was like I'd easily have 1-2 new breakouts, I should also mention that I have PCOS so this crap would be cystic. Like hello we gave you a break having a pretty blemish free teenage years face now we're gonna getcha!!!

 When I got my young living starter kit little did I know I was entering this village of amazing people, I am a part of the Happy Oilers. #proudho It's the greatest group of people who genuinely care about you and we all share these amazing oily things that are working for us. Long story short I was in one of our groups about two months back and this wonder woman posts a picture of Young Living's Orange Blossom Face Wash and ART Skin Toner and is beaming about wearing no face makeup. She goes on to tell us how she has never had skin this great & how she get cystic acne and oh yeah, she has PCOS... I mean I'll try anything at this point and I also feel like I pretty much have tried any & everything. I mean I don't think Sephora stocks something that I haven't tried! So what the heck I'll add it to my monthly box of awesome I get from YL right?!?!

I give this a try guys, really and truly I'm so amazed! I mean this has rocked my world almost like progessance plus did! #crazytalkright I'm here to tell you in the month I have used it, I mean I'm not  going to say I haven't had any new breakouts at all but I would say it's less the 1/4 of what I was getting before, much less and they also seem to heal so much faster! I can't get enough of this stuff and I will NEVER RUN OUT!!!!!! #BESTTHINGSINCESLICEDBREAD All joking aside though, if you have problem skin you need to give this a try. My member # is 2573746 if you want to order some, or if you want to grab your kit and be on your way to the oily life you can do that HERE.

So what I do is wash my face with the orange blossom once sometimes twice per day (usually only twice if i wear makeup) I love pairing it with my clarisonic then I follow that up with the ART toner. I have found that a very little goes a long way with both of these. I usually only use the toner once per day and if I do run it a second time it's only on the problem areas like my chin and jawline.

Now there's just one last thing I added to this mix... It's the young living satin mint facial scrub, I love this because of said acne...! I mean we all need a good face polish right?!?! I like to exfoliate those dull and dark spots!!! The smell and feel of this stuff is great, it's not super rough on your skin but you wouldn't even realize that if you did a before and after of your pores!! Seriously guys this stuff is next level...

If you have any questions feel free to leave me a comment or shoot me an email I would be happy to help.

beauty bakerie cosmetics lip whips

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

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!!!!!
