Hi lovelies! I’ve missed you for about 4 months (good god!) because of the start of school (start of uniforms), much more homework in this grade, and just learning how to balance it all! I’ve missed you guys so much and I hope you feel the same! My friend (Initials MM 😉 helped me get motivated to start up again, so I’m really excited! My new theme is to post everyday under the theme…..drumroll please…..13 days till Christmas! Everyday I’ll post something that I either want for Christmas or something I bought around the season, the segment will finish off on Christmas Day with a huge Christmas Haul! So…..
On the 13th day of Christmas my followers gave to me 13 flawless lashes! Mascara of course!
My new favorite mascara (of all time) is Benefit They’re Real mascara ($23.00), and the name surely lives up to the results! I should’ve know it was great when all the workers in Sephora stopped me and told me I’d fall in love with it, and I guess they were right! I’ve never received so many mascara compliments in one day, and I’ve never felt so satisfied with a mascara purchase. It lengthens and volumizes making it a double threat that can’t be beat. Sadly I don’t have time to review tonight, but I will make sure to post one soon!
This mascara is amazing and I’d be so happy if just a few of you guys tried it! If you do tell me what you think (be honest)! Well until tomorrow….
Ok I decided to do another favorite of mines, a makeup review! I got this palette as a present from my parents and I don’t use it very it very often but I plan to now after discovering how much I enjoy the shadows! Here we go!
Casing: A cute thin pouch, easy to use zipper, quick and easy access to the shadows!
Pricing: Not exactly sure what the price was since it was a present, but currently at Sephora a similar palate is $36.00 (Yikes! Hope they got it for less!)
It even comes with a really cute lip gloss!
Product: Overall I am pleased with this palate, although the colors are not very easy to wear on any ordinary day. But the quality and look of each of the shadows is great.
Maui Wowie: Glittery, thick, and pops. I feel like I could combine this eye shadow with any of the other colors in the palette. It blends nicely and is one of my favorite in the palette.
Deep End: Bright, different, and sheer. This eyeshadow is very out there so make sure to blend and pair it up wisely so one does not get the clown effect (haha).
Sellout: white, light, and nude. Sellout is a very white eyeshadow, or it could also be considered nude. I don’t favor it very much because of its lack of blending and the way that it is on my skin.
Fishnet: metallic, glittery, sheer. Fishnet is a more sheer version of the Freakshow shadow. It also has more of a glitter than Freakshow. I wouldn’t use this color very often because of personal preferences.
Stray Dog: natural, matte, muted. This shadow is my favorite out of the whole palette. Its the most natural and I have a greater chance of wearing this shadow. I love how it looks once applied, and it would go great with any liner.
Freakshow: metallic, bright, retro. Freakshow is a very metallic color that lays on thick. Its not a sheer shadow at all. This one also pops so watch how you apply it and how you compliment it.

Overall: This is a great palette but you have to know what looks good on your skin and complexion. The only reason I wouldn’t have bought this palette myself is because of the colors. I favor natural shadows more. But other than that they are all great shadows! I would recommend this to a friend!
Please leave you comments on this review and if you think you’d purchase it! I’d also love it if you would request more reviews and post ideas for the future! Thanks!
I went to the mall last weekend and I meant to buy outfits, but I literally couldn’t find anything, so I went into Sephora and I spent around an hour in there and bought one product….Yea I’m a little shopping challenged. Well anyway I went in looking for a product that I could put over my whole face that would give my skin a glow, and I found just that! Lets get to the review!
Casing: The holder is easy to open and close, light, simple, and basic.
Price: $12.95, a price I was willing to pay for hoping I’d use it everyday, and since the product is coming from Sephora
Product: I absolutely love this product! It does exactly what I wanted it to do! It covers my skin smoothly and it’s even. Although there is some glitter in it, it spreads well so you don’t have spots of glitter. Its very sheer, light, and casual, and I would recommend it as something you put on daily to to finish any look! As you can see in the two picture of my hand, its very natural and good for any casual or extravagant look.
Main Point: I would reccomend this to a friend, and I will most likely be buying another once I use this one.
Thanks for reading, and please comment any of your thoughts!
