February-April Empties!

February-April Empties!

Hey everyone! Here are my empties from February-April. Since I used up one thing in February and lately felt like these monthly empties posts were coming up way too soon, I decided to space this one out and let all of my empties pile up. I’ve been so ready to throw out my empties build-up in the corner of my room, so that was motivation to finally do this post and toss em! So…let’s get to it!

Mini Life Update: My Short Break, Why I Blog, Unicorn Frappucinos.

Hey Guys! I haven’t published a post in 10 11 days now which for me is a while. Give or take, I try to post once a week and if I’m really feelin’ it, twice a week. So I guess it hasn’t been been that long, but longer than usual for me. After getting some time away, I felt like doing a non-beauty post and just say what’s up.

Does It Work: Johnson’s Baby Wash for the Face?

Hey Everyone! Here I am today with another Does it Work hack report! I recently tried fixing broken makeup with rubbing alcohol, and now I want to share my experience using baby wash as as face wash- something I’ve been seeing around and was curious, albeit a bit uncertain. I don’t know about you, but any products meant for the body just seems off limits for the face. I have used Dove bar soap on my face at one point, but it wasn’t anything amazing and stopped there.

Now I think people actually use actual baby shampoo as a face wash as well which I haven’t really tried, so keep in mind that I used the head-to-toe wash and not their actual baby shampoo so I can’t make any claims on that.

Anyway, people have been using Johnson’s Head-to-Toe baby wash as a facial cleanser, claim it works really well and is supposed to be great for sensitive skin. I guess it would make sense-if it’s gentle enough to use on a baby’s sensitive skin, what harm could it do to an adult? Some have even said it changed their skin drastically. Again, stuff I was definitely skeptical about and I needed to have my own proof. Let’s get into some info!

On My Radar: Face Products!

Face products on my radar
Face Products On My Radar!

Hey everyone and happy April! I’m getting over a terrible cold I had for a week (bleh! What a way to finish out winter!) but I’m happy to say I’m almost back to my normal self.

My mind is a total sponge right now and I’m open to so many new (and not so new) products out there! I’m constantly looking at makeup and skincare on social media so this isn’t necessarily a conclusive list but rather a few things I’m definitely interested in trying at some point. Mostly face products this time around, but stuff I know I’d probably reach for regularly (if I end up liking them!).

I’m not one to impulse buy but if something is supposed to be good and I’m in that kinda mood, who knows what I’ll end up with! I’m definitely curious to see if these live up to the hype. While there are more products and brands I’d love to try, these face products are at the top of my list at the moment! So here they are in no particular order:

Now and again I like to add a touch of bold color to my lids via eyeliner or a hint of shadow. I think it breaks up the monotony of my typical browns, blacks or neutral liners and I just love playing around with different colors!

Makeup Revolution Iconic Lights & Contour Pro Palette

Makeup Revolution Iconic Lights & Contour Palette review
Makeup Revolution Iconic Lights & Contour Palette

Hey everyone! Today I’ll be reviewing the Makeup Revolution Iconic Lights & Contour Pro Palette (geez what a mouthful)! I’m assuming you know what contouring is but just in case-contouring is giving your face more dimension by receding areas with a darker shade (under cheekbones, under jaw etc.) while highlighting other parts of your face (cheekbones, bridge of nose etc.) with a lighter powder, concealer, or highlighter. There are different products you can use for this of course, but today is all about this palette!

This Time Next Year Tag and 2017 Goal Checkup

This Time Next Year Tag and 2017 Goal Checkup
This Time Next Year Tag and 2017 Goal Checkup
Welcome back! I was recently tagged to do the “This Time Next Year” post by one of my blogging pals, Nicky Ashleigh. And since March seems like a good time to revisit the goals I set for myself back in January, I thought why not combine the two? It’s been a while since I’ve done a tag post but I enjoy connecting with others through these posts. I’m not big on setting lots of crazy goals for myself but I think it’s healthy to think of things you want to change or do more (or less) of once in a while! I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about goals lately, so this couldn’t have come at a better time.

Product Toss/Declutter: Part 3

Product Declutter/Toss
Product Declutter

Greetings all! March is marching on as I like to say, and here I am back in toss-out mode! I have this endless fascination with decluttering or purging stuff. Last summer I did a major eyeshadow declutter and lip product declutter, and I’m at it again. I’m going through my house little by little and getting rid of stuff in different categories. It’s one of those things that’s an ongoing process- something I really like to do once in a while to keep things neat and updated.

I’ve definitely outgrown products and some are just no longer functional, and for me it’s just finding the time to sort everything out. Sometimes I’ll get rid of a bunch of things at once, other times it’s more spontaneous or random.  I always find it interesting that when it comes to some things, one moment it’s so hard to let go then all of a sudden you’re just ready and it needs to be out of your life. At least that’s how it is for me!

Recent Eyeshadow Palette Purchases and Thoughts

Recent Eyeshadow Palette Purchases
Hey there, Beauts! Happy MARCH! We (kinda) made it through winter and spring is sounding really good right now! Good thing it’s right around the corner.

In today’s post I want to share with you the neutral/nude palettes I ended up getting towards the end of last year. If you’ve been following my blog, you may remember that a few months ago I was trying to decide between a couple. I was looking to get some new palettes because I had a meh palette that was way old and I was over it basically, and I really didn’t have many others unless you count quads or duos. All the pretty new palettes were calling my name.

January 2017 Empties!

January Empties
January Empties
Hey Hey Beauts! Most of February has flown by and yes I’m putting up a January Empties post now- you didn’t think it would be up any sooner, right? LoL. Hope your February is going well!

I am a bit surprised at how many products I’ve been finishing up month by month, or why some months are full of so many and some so few but I guess that would make sense if you’re continually using stuff up at the same pace. Anything I can finish or get rid of always feels like an accomplishment, especially since I really want to downsize my products overall! I’ll always have a collection, but I welcome more space and less stuff I’m not in love with. So here are the empties!
