Shop My Stash April 2019 Results and Monthly Empties

IMG_0349

Hi All!¬† I’m back with my April Shop My Stash results!¬† I enjoy dipping into my collection and using products I haven’t used in a long time, or just haven’t given much of a chance.

My rule with this is if I don’t like the item after the month, I will move it out of my collection to make some room and let someone else enjoy it!

You can check out my first Shop My Stash post for April. Here’s a photo with the palettes open:

IMG_0350

As I’ve been saying this week, I’ve been suffering severe allergies in April, so I didn’t wear as much makeup as I had hoped.¬† I do have to say that when I did do my makeup, I tried to use the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette and the Cover FX face palette.¬† They were my most used this month.

The Violet Voss palette is so beautiful!¬† It’s perfect for warm toned, neutral looks.¬† I mostly used the browns and bronzes and really loved them.¬† I tried to dip into most of the shades.¬† I will definitely be keeping this beauty!

The Cover FX All in One Perfector Face Palette is really nice.  I love bronzing and contouring with the same powder, but this contour is too cool for me to do that.  So I just used it in the hollows of my cheeks and my nose.  I had to use a different bronzer for the rest of my face.  The blush is nice, but a bit too bright for me.  I did really love the highlighters, brightener and finishing powder.  I will keep this and probably use it more in the summer.

The Rimmel London MAGNIF’EYES Eyeshadow Palette in Electric Violet is so pretty.¬† The mattes are very easy to blend.¬† The shimmers are nice, but you need to wet them to get any metallic payoff. My favorite shade is the second from the left.¬† It’s a nice transition shade.¬† I also love the lighter purple shimmers.¬† I didn’t use this too much, but I did get a chance to try most of the shades.¬† I will keep this because of the few shades I love. I also have a few of these palettes and am starting a little collection of them!

The bareMineral Gen Nude Patent Lip Lacquer in Can’t Even and Bae are such great spring colors.¬† They are a bit sticky, which I didn’t realize before.¬† I will continue to use them because I like the shades, but I don’t know if I would purchase more.

So I’m keeping everything!¬† What a successful month!

It’s on to my April Empties:

IMG_0636

I had six this month!¬† I think this is the most I’ve had this year.¬† Last year I did Project Pan’s instead of Shop My Stash, and I definitely haven’t been going through as many products this year.¬† But I’m proud of myself this month.¬† And I hopefully will have as many next month, too.

Of course, it’s mostly skincare.¬† I used up the H2O+ Elements Jelly Cleanser, The Higher Education Easy A Gentle Resurfacing Pads, The Reclaim Botanical Radiant Recovery Smooth Skin Scrub and the Radiant Recovery Day Cream, Pixi Beauty Rose Ceramide Cream, and the Tarte Maneater Mascara. I liked all of these, but the one I would probably repurchase is the Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream.¬† It’s so gentle and hydrating!¬† But I have lots of skincare to go through before I purchase anything new!

Are you doing a Shop Your Stash or Project Pan this year?¬† How’s it going?

Rimmel London Stay Matte Products and Natural Shades For a Flawless Spring!

Hi all! I hope you’re spring is bright and sunny!¬† It’s been pretty nice in Kansas City and is getting warmer!

I received some fun Rimmel London products to create spring looks with.¬† ¬†The Stay Matte Line has a new concealer I’m excited to be trying and Rimmel has beautiful neutral and coral makeup that’s perfect for spring.¬† Here are the products I received for my honest review:

IMG_0384

Scandal’eyes WOW Wings Mascara ($6.99 USD at Walgreens)
Stay Matte Concealer ($5.49 USD at Walgreens)
Stay Matte Foundation ($5.49 USD at CVS)

IMG_0385

I received 001 Fair Porcelain in the foundation and 011 Porcelain in the concealer.¬† The foundation is a little light for me, but I still tried it out.¬† It has a mousse-like texture, but it feels really light when blended out.¬† I’d say it’s a medium coverage. And, I get more coverage with a brush than a sponge.The finish is soft matte.¬† It does not completely dry down and it’s so comfortable on.¬† I have combination, aging skin, but it does tend to get oily as the weather gets warmer.¬† I think this will be nice when my skin is oily, because it stays looking fresh all day, and not shiny.

The concealer is new. I’d say it’s also medium coverage.¬† It’s thick and just a bit dry, so I make sure to blend it out quickly.¬† But I have to say it stays on all day, and I didn’t see much creasing, which is really nice.¬† The shade I received is good on me now, but if I tan, it might be a bit light.

IMG_0391

Sorry this is so blurry!  But the swatch on the left is the foundation and theswatch on the right is the concealer.  They are both creamy, with a soft matte finish. 

IMG_0386

Maxi Blush in 004 Sweet Cheeks and Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color in Be My Baby.

This is a buildable cheek color that lasts all day.¬† It has a velvety matte finish and blends really nicely.¬†The color Sweet Cheeks is a soft coral-orange shade. It’s perfect for spring.

This matte lipstick is one of my favorite formulas.  It is very matte, so I love it with a light gloss over it.  It stays on so long!

img_0501.jpg

These products really define the eyes.¬† The mascara has a winged wand that flares out corner lashes for a perfect winged out look. It also lifts lashes and gives lots of volume. I really like that it doesn’t flake or smudge.¬† Rimmel makes such nice mascaras.

I don’t usually wear eyeliner.¬† I usually use eyeshadow as liner, but I do like liner for tightlining.¬† I’ve used this to tightline my upper lashes and placed it in my waterlines. It’s very soft and creamy and easy to blend, but it does also break easily because it is so soft.¬† It is waterproof and stays all day.

IMG_0388IMG_0389

I’m a big fan of the¬†Rimmel London Magnif‚ÄôEyes Eyeshadow Palettes.¬† I have been enjoying the Nude Edition.¬† It’s a mostly cool toned palette, with a few warm tones lighter shades.

IMG_0503

Here’s swatches from the palette.¬† It has a good selection of mattes and shimmers, and I can create a good smoky eye if I want.¬† I normally do a more natural look, and this gives a good day look, too. The shadows are very easy to blend.¬† The mattes are a little powdery and there’s a bit of kick up in the pan, but not a lot.¬† The shimmers are very creamy.¬† I’m looking forward to playing with it more!

Shop My Stash — April 2019

IMG_0349

Hi all! It’s time for my April Shop My Stash!¬† I love the beginning of the month when I choose new products from my stash to use.¬† My goal is to get more use out of the products I have and to see if they are something I want to keep.

img_0350.jpg

I think my choices for April are so pretty!  And they all look new, so I need to give them some love and mess them up a bit!

Here are close ups of the products:

IMG_0356IMG_0355

I received this Violet Voss Pro HG palette in my December BoxyLuxe — and it’s really gorgeous!¬† I have only used it a few times, so I am excited to focus more on it this month.¬† I will be able to do neutral brown looks and more warm/coral looks for spring.¬† The metallics in these are gorgeous!¬† I haven’t reviewed it yet — and I will try to do it this month.¬† I say that every month with my palettes, and haven’t done it yet, but hopefully soon I will start reviewing my palettes!

IMG_0354IMG_0353¬†This is the Rimmel London¬†MAGNIF’EYES Eyeshadow Palette in Electric Violet.¬† It is so pretty!¬† I have been choosing more neutral palettes so far this year in my Shop My Stashes, so I decided I needed a colorful one in this month!¬† I’m going to try to add a palette with color through spring and summer — it’s definitely the season for fun eye looks!¬† I haven’t played with this one yet, but it swatches so nicely, so I’m excited! And, I love purple!

IMG_0352IMG_0351

I received this CoverFX All in One Perfector Face Palette in my March BoxyLuxe.  I love that it takes care of my face color cosmetics in just one palette.  This will be nice if I travel this year, too.  This is the lighter palette and it works perfectly for my skin tone.

IMG_0357IMG_0358

These are the BareMinerals Gen Nude Patent Lip Lacquer in Can’t Even and Bae.¬† This is a high gloss liquid lipstick.¬† I received these lasts fall for review, and I thought these would be perfect in spring.¬† And they are!¬† I’m excited to wear them alone, over a lip liner or over a lipstick.

I am so excited to play with these product! Have you tried any of them? What do you think of them?

 

 

 

 

Switch Up Your Look With Affordable Makeup From Rimmel London

Hi All! It is cold and snowy in Kansas City today!  To get out of the winter doldrums, I have been playing around with my brighter makeup.

I’ve received some fun Rimmel London color cosmetics for my honest review. I love the quality and affordability of this brand.

As we’re gearing up for the new year, what better way is there to go into it being¬†bold, creative and colorful? Create a masterpiece on your eyes with the Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Palette ($8.99 USD)!¬†Each palette comes with a mix of 12 super pigmented high-shimmer and matte shades that are crease-proof, smear-proof and has some serious staying power. Available in 5 palettes: Spice, Crimson, Colour, Electric Violet and Jewel Rocks.
What I think: I have these palettes in Crimson (reviewed here) and I have just received Electric Violet.¬† If you’re looking for a really purple palette, this is a good one.¬† The eye shadows are nicely pigmented. I love that this is very cool toned and that there are some neutral colors as well as purples for a complete look. And I love how affordable it is for 12 shadows!

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick
You know what they say: you can never have enough lipsticks.¬†Rimmel London’s Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick ($4.99) has a wide range of gorgeous shades, from subtle to very bold!¬†These velvety, 12-hour wear liquid lippies will top of any look imaginable all while staying put all day long.
What I think: I am not the biggest fan of liquid lipsticks, but I do love these. These are very creamy when applied and are not sticky, even when drying down.¬† Once dried down, they are dry, but not uncomfortable.¬† I always apply a lip balm first and usually wear a gloss over (I love gloss). They do wear all day!¬† For the shades I love, they are usually nudes an pinks — 110 Blush, 200 Pink Blink, 707 Raw Kiss and 709 Strapless.¬† Some of the bolder shades I like for a night out are — 800 Midnight, 810 Plum the Show, and 820 Heartbeat. Do you want a wilder shade?¬† How about 830 Blue Iris, 850 Shadow or 840 Pitch Black?¬† There are also bright pinks, reds and lots of ranges of nudes!
They also have a satin formula, and I am hoping to try that this year.
Purchase at Target, Walmart, and Walgreens

Rimmel London Magnif‚ÄôEyes Products For Rich Fall Looks

IMG_2159.JPG

Hi all! I hope your October is going well! I recently received some fun Rimmel London eye products to test and review.  They are the Magnif’Eyes Palette Crimson Edition and the Magnif’Eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner.  These are both great for creating fun fall looks!

IMG_2160IMG_2161

This gorgeous palette retails for under $8! It is really pigmented and the colors are very on trend! Rimmel has actually extended their popular 12 pan Magnif’Eyes Palette Collection with 4 NEW styles. They are Crimson, Electric Violet, Jewel Rocks and Wow. The full range of Magnif’Eyes Palettes has 9 different styles to craft endless looks.

 

IMG_2170
Here are my swatches.  They  swatch nicely and perform well on the eyes. You can make a complete pink, red or brown look with this, or mix and match the shades. I do have a lot of palettes in this shade range, but I like that this is affordable.

I also find the mattes really blendable, which is nice.  The shimmers need to be wettened by setting spray to really show up on the eyes.  You can also use your fingers.

IMG_2171.JPG

These are the Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner.  This retails for around $6.50. You can create an easy look by using the line end to line your waterline and shape your eye.  Second, shade in the shadow all over lid and smudge out using your finger. The long lasting formula claims to be waterproof, crease proof and transfer proof.

IMG_2172

The shades I have left to right is Pink and Purple Rain, Kissed by a Rose Gold and Dark Side of Blue.

I am in LOVE with the first two shades!¬† The shadows dry down really fast and do not budge!¬† The liners take a little more time to dry, but they dry down completely, too. I don’t wear a ton of eyeliner, so a lot of times I like to use the shadow to add shimmer to an eye look.¬† I dab it on my eye and lightly tap it in.¬† You can make a fast faux halo or cut crease with these, because they are so opaque.

I do recommend both of these Rimmel London products.  They are affordable and are of great quality!

Availability: Mass retailers and drugstores

Project Pan August-September 2018 — First Update

 

IMG_1925.JPG

Hi All!¬† I’m back with my first check in for my third quarter project pan in 2018.¬† This one is only two months long, because I took July off.¬†You can see my first post with the products listed here.

This has been going pretty well as I have already panned three products:

IMG_1924

Sorry this is so dark!¬† The products I’ve panned are PUR No Filter Primer, Pacifica Crystal Power Hydro Mist and Reclaim Botanical Serum. I love all three of these products, but won’t be repurchasing them this year.¬† I have so much makeup and skincare and it will last me through the end of the year.

Here’s what I have left:

IMG_1921

Philosophy Hope in a Jar — I have about a 3rd of this left

Yes to Superblueberries Skin Recharging Yogurt Scrub and Mask — I have about a 4th of this left.

Reclaim Botanical Eye Cream — This is almost done, maybe a few more uses are left.

Botanics¬†100% Organic Refreshing Toning Spritz — I have about a week of this left.¬† I really love this spray!¬† It has a rosy-floral scent.

IMG_1923.JPG

Rimmel London¬†Lasting Finish 25HR Breathable Foundation in 01 Classic Ivory — It’s really hard to tell on this one.¬† It could have a 3rd or 4th left in it, it’s hard to tell.

The Lavanila The Healthy Body Butter in Vanilla Grapefruit has just a few more uses in it.

The Tigi Bed Head After-Party still has a couple of weeks in it I think.

I will update again at the end of September and hopefully it will all be used up.  Wish me luck!

Have you done a project pan before?  How did it go?

 

Project Pan August-September 2018

Hey all! I’m back with my third project pan of the year! I’ve been doing quarterly pans, but I took a month off.¬† So this third pan is only two months.

The products below are mostly skincare, with some makeup and other products thrown in!

IMG_1749

I have chosen 10 products for my 2 month pan.  Most of these are at least half way full, so I should be able get through most of them!

Here is a description of each product and what I think of it.  Buckle up, this is going to be a long one!

img_1752-e1533689625959.jpg

Both of these are from Victoria Principal’s natural skincare line¬†Principal Secret Reclaim Botanical.¬† I have been loving products from this line.¬† So great for aging skin and I love that they are good for me! They are almost used up so they should be empty by the end of the pan.

Synant Peptide — gives skin a botanically based serum specially infused with exclusive Synant Peptide. This formula helps improve the appearance of skin elasticity, hydration and radiance while visibly minimizing fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.

Principal Secret Reclaim Botanical Radiant Recovery¬†Fluid Eye Cream —¬†This botanically based eye formula is designed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and undereye puffiness. Superior botanicals from the Brazilian Rain Forest work alongside scientifically advanced ingredients plus a special light refractor to operate as an instant concealer that visibly diminish imperfections.

yes to superblueberries RECHARGING GREEK YOGURT &¬†PROBIOTICS 3-IN-1 MASK, SCRUB & CLEANSER —¬†Cleanse, exfoliate and treat your skin with this supercharged 3-in-1 Mask, Scrub & Cleanser. Formulated for stressed skin, this rich, creamy formula provides customized use‚Ķcan be used as a mask, scrub or cleanser separately or all together to recharge and rebalance skin.¬†

I have had the¬† the hope in a jar for a while now and need to use it up.¬† It looks thick, but turns into a lighter cream once applied.¬† It’s really nice for the summer.¬† This jar is pretty full (as is the Yes to mask) so I need to make an effort to use it up.

The yes to superblueberries mask/scrub/cleanser is really creamy and sticks to my skin, so it works best as a mask, then wiped off with a damp towel.  It leaves my skin so soft and glowy!

IMG_1753

Botanics¬†100% Organic Refreshing Toning Spritz —¬†Botanics 100% Organic Refreshing Toning Spritz, a generous spritz of this organic rose-water toner purifies and refreshes skin after cleansing, as it delicately yet effectively removes traces of make-up, leaving the skin feeling revitalized.

Pacifcia¬†Crystal Power Hydro Mist —¬†Your skin will look amazing and your soul will love the aromapowers. Watermelon, lemongrass and rose crystal extracts unite with aloe to bring you hydration and a refreshing boost with Pacifica’s Crystal Power Hydro Mist. This is your moment to shine bright.

I love both of these mists, but I have SO many mists right now, I need to use some up!  I use the Botanics mist (which smells like rose) after I wash my face and before my skincare, and the Pacifica mist (which smells like watermelon) before and after applying makeup.  They smell amazing and are so refreshing!

Both of these are available at Ulta.

IMG_1750.JPG

P√úR¬†No Filter Blurring Photography Primer —¬†P√úR’s unique primer with prismatic blurring micro-pearls helps to color correct while age-defying skin care ingredients nourishes the skin and a vitamin-rich Energy Complex with moisturizing agave and essential fatty acids prep the skin for makeup application.¬†

The primer is looks shimmery first, but when applied well, it blurs all imperfections and skin looks so smooth! It’s really hydrating, too.

The foundation is a medium coverage which I love for everyday. It’s a little glowy and hydrating, which I need right now.¬† My skin is a little dry.

IMG_1754

Lavanila The Healthy Body Butter in Vanilla Grapefruit —¬† A crisp blend of sparkling grapefruit and vanilla softly scents skin. This super soft, all-natural body butter absorbs instantly for deeply hydrated, luxuriously soft skin. 100% pure Shea & Cocoa Butters blend with powerful antioxidants and essential oils for long-lasting hydration.

Tigi Bed Head After-Party —¬†The perfect party favor for TIGI’s frizz prone friends. After-Party hair creme for silky, smooth, shiny, healthy looking hair. Control the funky fly-aways and silk-ify your hair.
I love Lavanila Body Butter.  It is super hydrating and always smells amazing. This is about half full.
The Tigi hair cream is so good on my frizzy hair! It also makes my hair soft and shiny. I have been using this for a while, and there isn’t a lot left.
So there are my products for my third Project Pan of 2018.  I have less than two months to use these up.  I should be able to do it!
Are you doing project pans this year?¬† How’s it going?

 

 

 

 

Gorgeous Glowing Summer Products!

IMG_1699.JPG

Hi All!¬† August is here and summer is still going strong. I’m not a big fan of the heat and humidity, but I do like the glow of summer makeup and fun colors on my eyes and nails.

Here are some of the products I have been enjoying using:

Rimmel London Wonder Wing Eyeliner Stamp ($6.99 USD) — I have not mastered winged eyeliner.¬† In fact, I’m pretty terrible at it.¬† That’s why I was excited to try this liner. The end of the liner has a long triangle shape to stamp a wing.¬† And that does work, but it takes practice. There is a point at the end to use it as a liner, but it bleeds onto my eye.¬† My trick is to use the stamp for the wing and connect it with a gel pen or eyeliner pencil.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Summer Solstice Collection features 8 new, exotic shades.¬† Plus, it’s great to wear on vacation and it lasts and lasts.¬† Here are the shades:
‚󏬆¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†After Altar¬†Take it to the dancefloor post-vows in a soft & subtle light nude
‚󏬆¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Forever Together¬†It‚Äôs fate! Raise a glass to a go-with-anything dusty purple
‚󏬆¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Golden Glow¬†Extend your summer glow with this metallic gold
‚󏬆¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†I Lava You¬†Whisper sweet nothings donning a perfectly pearly pink (available in a duo pack with Miracle Gel‚ĄĘ¬†Top Coat)
‚󏬆¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Just Wanna Have Sun¬†Enjoy bright, sunny days in a red-orange tint that evokes a tropical sunset (available in a duo pack with Miracle Gel‚ĄĘ¬†Top Coat)
‚󏬆¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Koi Coral¬†Spend days snorkeling in a cool coral shade
‚󏬆¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Ocean Daze¬†Pick a marital-minded mint cr√®me shade for your seaside escape
‚󏬆¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Sea Gals¬†Make it a magical mermaid moment in this shimmery aqua blue
I have the shades Golden Glow, Koi Coral, and Sea Gals. They are all gorgeous on! The Sally Hansen Summer Solstice Collection Retails for $9.99 each and is available at Walgreens.
Jergens¬†Instant Sun Sunless Tanning¬†Mousse ($11.99 USD) —¬† I love this easy to use self tanner! Just apply this mousse to the body and let dry.¬† Then you can dress and go.¬†¬†
Color will develop instantly and deepen over the next several hours. Use once for natural-looking color and repeat the next day if deeper color is desired. Availalbe in two shades — Light Bronze and Deep Bronze.
WUNDER2 Perfect Selfie HD Photo Finishing Powder ($22 USD) — I have this powder in the¬†Bronzing¬†Veil.¬† It is a buildable finish that smooths the skin and has a nice warm tone.¬† Perfect for a summer glow.¬† This is also available in a Translucent finishing powder.

WUNDER2¬†Super-Stay Liquid Eyeliner¬†($15.95 USD) — This liquid liner is so easy to use.¬† Waterproof and smudge-proof, the highly pigmented¬†liquid eyeliner has a precision tip to create ultra-thin lines.¬† It comes in 6 fun shades.¬† The shades I have are Gold Mine, Red Velvet, Orange Pop and Electric Blue.
