March 2020 Beauty Favorites

Hi all! I hope you’re well and staying safe.

Below are my beauty faves for March.  As usual, If I have reviewed them before, I will include the link, if not, I will link to where you can purchase:

I had a pretty good mix of skincare and makeup this month — plus a perfume!

Here’s a close up of the eyeshadow and face palette:

IMG-3252

This is the Viseart Paris EDIT Eyeshadow Palette.  I picked this up at the beginning of the month and love it!  I can create cool and warm tone looks and every shade is stunning! This is my first Viseart palette and I am so impressed with the quality. It’s tiny, but I love that it has so many shade in it.  I will definitely be purchasing another palette from Viseart in the future.

IMG-3251

This is the Stay Naked Threesome Bronze, Blush and Highlighter Palette in Naked and it’s such a nice face palette.  It’s compact enough that it’s perfect to travel with (someday).  I love having my bronzer, blush and highlighter in the same palette.  So convenient!

IMG-3249

This is my current favorite skincare. The Derma E Vitamin C Gentle Daily Cleansing Paste helps to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone, revealing a radiant and beautiful complexion.  I also like using it as a mask.

The Tonymoly Vital Vita 12 Synergy Ampoule is infused with Niacinamide, Adenosine and the exclusive Vita-12 multi-vitamin compound that uses nanosome technology that provides 12 types of vitamins (A, B1, B3, B5, B6, B8, B12, C,E,F,H) combined to create a highly effective multi-vitamin blend. I use it in the morning to brighten my skin and love it!  It’s light and sinks right in.

I received the Nuria Defend Triple Action Eye Cream from an Allure box last year.  It’s very hydrating and feels nice on my eyes! It claims to remove the appearance of dark circles, reduce the look of puffiness, and improve fine lines.  The skin around my eyes do look nice and smooth.

The Pixi Collagen LipGloss is my current favorite lip balm. It is enriched with Botanical Collagen and Peptides and hydrates and softens while helping to create smoother, fuller looking lips. I like using this before I do my makeup so my lips are nice and hydrated when I apply lip products.

 

IMG-3250

I’ve had this since last year, but I’ve just really starting using the beautyblender RE-DEW Set & Refresh Spray. It’s such a cool product!  It refreshes makeup, extends wear and adds a boost of hydration. This has a very fine mist nozzle, and it doesn’t disturb makeup. I like how it blends my powders into my makeup so I look really natural.

And my last favorite of the month is a perfume!  It’s the Jennifer Lopez Promise Eau de Parfum.  I have been loving this fragrance.  It’s so nice for every day, plus it’s a little bit glamorous!

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul

Hi all! Happy Wednesday!  I hope your week is going well and that you are staying safe.

Today I have a little Ulta Haul.  I purchased a couple of things from the current 21 Days of Beauty sale and a few other fun products.  I’m not purchasing as much from the sale as I usually do.  It’s because honestly I don’t need a lot of makeup and I’m trying to use some up.

IMG-3181

I haven’t done a lot of hauls this year, so it’s exciting to get some new makeup!  Here’s more information on the items I picked up:

IMG-3188

From the sale I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown and the MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Face Powder in Light. I haven’t tried either of these before, so I’m excited to test them out!

Here’s a close up of the powder:

IMG-3195

This is a slow-baked domed face powder with low-level pearlized pigments that provide a dimensional yet natural-satin finish. Can be used to set foundation and to touch-up makeup throughout the day.

I’m really loving this so far. It sets my makeup without leaving my skin looking dry or cakey.

IMG-3183

I finally picked up a Elf Cosmetics Bite Size Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Water. These are so cute! I love the pink tones in this cute little guy.  Here’s swatches:

IMG-3193

I really like both shimmers.  The mattes are nice, too!  I want to pick up a couple more of these, but the shades I want are often out of stock.  I’ll wait — they are only $3 each!

IMG-3189

I saw that a YouTuber I like, Emily Noel, purchased the EcoTools Scented Soap Roses and they looked so pretty that I had to pick them up. They smell so nice!

IMG-3190

I am a big fan of the Yes To facial wipes, so I wanted to try out the Watermelon Super Fresh ones. They smell amazing, too!


Have you picked up anything from the sale or are you planning on getting anything?

Walmart Beauty Box Review — Winter 2020

IMG-3149 (1)

Hi all!  Happy Wednesday!

I’m here with a review of  the Walmart Beauty Box.  It’s a $5 quarterly subscription box. This review is of the Winter 2020 box.  Here’s what I received:

IMG-3140

Here are the products up close:

IMG-3147

I think it’s nice there’s a deodorant in the box.  This did work a little bit for me, but the spray made me cough, so I stopped using it.

The lotion is fine.  It just smells like lotion.  But it will be nice to take in my purse if I need it.

IMG-3145IMG-3146

This is an interesting duo.  It’s the same shade in different finishes — matte and metallic.  It’s a nude pink and is really pretty.  I tried the metallic on and it was nice!

IMG-3144

The polish is a pretty deep pink shade for spring.  And the single cleansing towelette will be nice to pop in my purse. I’m a big fan of Neutrogena wipes.

I think this is a pretty nice box.  It has some useful items and some fun ones to.  I do think they should put out the seasonal boxes at the beginning of the season instead of the end.


Do you get Walmart Beauty Box each quarter?  What did you get in your Winter box?

Viseart Paris EDIT Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hi all!  I hope your week has started off well and that you are safe!

I decided to share a recent purchase today. Viseart Paris EDIT Eyeshadow Palette. This is the first Viseart product I’ve bought.  The brand is a little expensive, but is supposed to be great quality and pigment.

IMG-3090

 

Such a gorgeous palette! Here’s more info about it from Sephora’s website:

Introducing the Paris EDIT Eyeshadow Palette from the EDIT collection, a romantic selection of 12 refined neutrals in matte, metallic, satin, and shimmer finishes. The palette draws inspiration from haute couture, Parisian sensibility, and the hues found in the full-size Paris Nudes and Grande Pro eyeshadow palettes.

Developed as a travel-friendly edition of Viseart’s full-size 12-pan eyeshadow palettes, the EDIT collection was designed with quick and easy go-to shadows in mind. Svelte and sophisticated, the innovative, convertible packaging houses 12 eyeshadows along with a mirror and removable magnetic pans.

IMG-3102IMG-3103IMG-3089

This is such a cute little palette!  The pans are pretty small, but my brushes fit into them just fine.  This will be perfect for when I travel in the future.  Plus, it has a mirror!

Swatches:

IMG-3101

This is the top row and first half of the second row.  The shades are listed on the back of the outer box.  They are Pétale (soft, dusty mauve with a matte finish), Champs-Elysées (light, gold champagne with a shimmer finish), Crème Brûlée (soft, light toffee with a matte finish), Fleur (medium, dusty plum with a matte finish), Opera (shimmering purple-pink with a shimmer finish), Beaux-Arts (glistening caramel brown with a satin finish).

These are the softest shades in the palette and I really like them for everyday wear.  I really love that I can create cool or warm looks. The metallics and shimmers or so bright and pretty on and the mattes blend really well!

IMG-3099

From left to right Tulle (light peach with a matte finish), Cerise (muted merlot with a satin finish), St. Germain (smoky purple with a shimmer finish), Marais (copper brown with a shimmer finish), Pirouette (rosy brown with a metallic finish) and Tuileries (medium-toned mauve purple with a shimmer finish).

The second half of the palette has deeper tones.  The last shade in the palette, Tuileries makes an amazing eyeliner shade.  The shimmer does show on the eye.


I am so happy I picked this palette up!  The formula is as amazing and I have heard.  Plus, I’ve already created so many different looks with it.

PÜR x TROLLS World Tour Collaboration Review

Hi all!  I hope you are having a nice Friday.  It’s almost the weekend, yay!

I thought it would be fun to share these products from the new PÜR x TROLLS World Tour Collaboration.  They are very cute compacts and the shades are beautiful.

IMG-3024

The products I received are two of the Travel-Sized Pressed Pigments Palettes.  The orange compact is Country and the purple is Funk.  There are four other eyeshadow palettes — Pop (pink), Techno (blue), Rock (gray) and Classical (nudes).

I also received the Top of the Charts Face Trio + Lip Gloss Kit.  All of these products are really fun and very pigmented!  Here’s a close up of the items:

IMG-3026

I love purple and was excited to receive this palette!  It’s a nice, small size and will be great for putting in my purse and if I go anywhere (later this year). The compact also has a very nice mirror.

Here are swatches of Funk:

IMG-3053

The shades from left to right (they are on the back of the palette) are Cooper, So Funky, Full of Soul, Happy-Go Lucky, Prince D and Let’s Groove (the middle shade).

I love this palette! I’ve already use it and it’s so pretty!  The lighter mattes Cooper and Full of Soul perform much better than they swatch.  You can create a lighter look with the first 3 shades or deepen it up with the other colors.

IMG-3028

This is such a beautiful warm toned palette — I love this one as well! It will be perfect if you love warm-toned looks.  You can make a lighter look for spring, and it will also be beautiful in the summer and fall!

Here are swatches of Country:

IMG-3049

From left to right — Burlap, Line Dance, Hickory, Lonesome Flats, Old Faithful and Delta Dawn (middle shade).

My fave shade is Hickory, it’s stunning all over the lid.  All of the mattes perform very well, too.

IMG-3030

This is another beautiful product! I have to admit, I am kind of surprised at the amazing quality of this collection!

Here are swatches of the gloss and the face palette:

IMG-3056

The gloss is called Sing-Along.  The face palette shades are LED-Lit, Cheery and Pretty Popular.

The lip gloss is hydrating, not sticky.  And the shade is just perfect for spring!  And as you can see, the highlighter is very intense.  It can be sheered out.  The blush is a little sparkly, too and the bronzer is more of a satin.  It’s a really nice palette to travel with as well because you have three face products and a mirror!

I recommend all of these products, if they are something you’re interested in.  The pigment and blendablity is great — and they are compact and fun!!


What do you think of the collection?  Are you picking any of these up?
