Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Balm - Euphoria

No comments :
I picked this up the last time I went to Ulta because it looked like a great dupe for a cream highlighter that I used to love from Urban Decay. Coincidentally, ColourPop's Monster highlighter is pretty similar! This is around $9 at Ulta, depending on if there's a sale or not.

Updates, Life, Etc!

No comments :
It seems like I've been slacking on here lately, but I actually have really exciting news that I haven't mentioned on here yet! I have been super hard at work with not one but two Etsy shops, and they've been more successful than I ever expected so pretty much all my time has been consumed with creating things and shipping things to people! I figured I would give you guys a quick post about it, just because you were so used to seeing me post a few times a week and it's gone down a bit since I started all of this. 

I started a planner sticker shop called Stickin' Around as I have been absolutely obsessed with planning. I figured I could bring two things that I love together - stickers and art - and start making my own stickers and planning kits. That has gone really well so far (and I take requests as well!) Then I started a makeup shop, which is what I really should be talking about on here. It is called Pretties For Your Face and so far I have highlighters and eyeshadows but I am working on so much more! Makeup has obviously been a love of mine for a very long time, and I've always wanted to try and create my own. It's been a long time in the making but I've finally got some awesome stuff and am happy to share it with you all!

So that is why I have been MIA lately. I've been trying to find a good balance between the shops, the blog, and YouTube and I'm starting to get into a better schedule, so I'm figuring it all out! It's all new and exciting, and I appreciate everyone who has supported me in my new journey so far so, so much!!

Jeffree Star Beauty Killer Eyeshadow Palette

1 comment :
I'm torn on this palette guys, I really am. The way people were hyping it up, I found myself disappointed while swatching it. But this isn't ALL bad, I just want to get that out of the way first. It ended up performing on the eyes a lot better than what I initially thought when I swatched it.

Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Ice Cold

No comments :
When Jeffree Star announced that he was doing highlighters, I had high expectations because he is always so glowing and radiant! Ice Cold really spoke to me because it's straight up white, and that seemed like the end all be all for pale people highlighters haha! I made sure to grab this one as soon as they went on sale!

Catrice Highlighting Powder in Stardust

No comments :
I've become a big fan of Catrice's products over the past few months, especially since Ulta has started carrying them. I became aware of this highlighter by watching Tarababyz on YouTube, and I figured I'd better grab this one because it was cheap and looked gorgeous!
