Happy New Year BABES!!

The contest IS CLOSED and to be in the holiday spirit, I chose 2 people to win. I’ll tell the details on how it was random below, but for the holiday season I decided to give a favorites list of about 5 things that I have been using frequently recently and love!

1. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

I just found this product and I don’t know what I was missing in my life! I use this under the eyes and if you know me, you know that under the eyes I tend to go for something medium to full coverage. With a lot of concealers, I often find myself not being able to go that full without getting completely cakey and looking like a creased monster under the eyes. NOT WITH THIS ONE! This concealer is like something that I would have come across in a dream of mine! It’s literally amazing to work with and the undertones are perfect! I’m in the shade Amande for a shade that matches my skin tone perfectly! (If I want a really stark highlight I go for Caramel). It dries to a demi matte on my skin, but even when my skin becomes an oily nightmare, without powder, she still stands her own and it’s AMAZING! This is beautiful covering blemishes and dark circles, because it looks so much like skin! It glows and as far as I know, reacts well with flash (I HAVE NOT TESTED WITH HD THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE IN THE NEAR FUTURE). And for someone like me in high school, when my friends that don’t wear makeup come to me for makeup advice, I always tell them to pick this up. The shades really adjust to skin tone with hardly any blending and can take on any beautiful flaw you through at her!

Rate: 100/10!

2. Midnight Fantasy By Britney Spears

Know, though I am someone big in fragrances, I have nothing against celebrity fragrances as some people who are into fragrances may be. I obviously know the difference between fragrance quality, but if I find a scent that I love, I’m not going to feel bad for liking it “just because it’s a celebrity fragrance”. That’s ridiculous.

So as I’m walking through the mall with my little grandmother on Black Friday, I see one of those famous perfume carts outside of Hot Topic. This one I know well, since the lady has been trying to get me to buy something from her for years. This time though, I caved in because I was looking for Midnight Fantasy for a deal since no place near me had this on sale and the only one I could find was a .5 oz. I ask the small, indian (not being racist or mean in any way shape or form, I’m simply setting the scene) woman if she had Midnight and she directs me to one of the sides of the cart and pulls out that blue box that I’m oh so familiar with. “$35,” she says. Now I’m like woo there! I don’t even know how many ounces this is and proving by the dust on the plastic, I wasn’t sure about sinking myself in on a perfume like this I can go hunt for cheaper on. “Hold on there, little lady,” I say making her giggle and blush “How many ounces?” “1.7,” she says casually. Hmm, she may have muzzled her way into me making a deal. So after bargaining with her, I got a 1 oz of Fantasy and a 1.7 oz of Midnight Fantasy for $45. Steal right!

 
Now, while we’re talking about fragrances, it really bugs me when people take other fragrances and try to rebottle it and claim it as their own. Like how the new Killer Queen smells like a cheap version of the classic Flowerbomb that I reviewed, but someone deleted when I got hacked. It really does smell like a cheap version of it and it’s not a good dupe for the classic. It’s actually somewhat insulting. 

3. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

This little product is something really unusual. If you don’t read the box and you just tear it open your sure to be shocked. This product isn’t the gel like facial cleanser that a lot of people are used to, it actually comes in a powder! The directions say to wet your hands and your face and work the powder into a lather. I actually do think that this product works and that it’s actually a really good product. It works all the makeup off of your face, but I don’t think that I would recommend it for dry skin, without some type of moisturizer or oil afterwards. It does give a very dry, tight feel to the face so if your skin is dry don’t do this alone.

4. Rembrandt Flouride Mouthwash

This mouthwash has been with me all year and I defiantly see the difference! It protects the enamel of your teeth, while whitening. The only thing is I wouldn’t say to do this while your thirsty, seeming as it says that you can’t drink within 30 minutes of doing this. To people that suggest the natural route, next year (basically tomorrow) I will be doing the oil pulling method and I am very excited about it!

5. Lancome Definicils Mascara

This mascara works wonders! I use this other some type of other waterproof mascara and the length is literally incredible seeming as I had really short lashes before. As for the growing effects, this really does help your lashes grow! It’s incredible how long my lashes have gotten! I didn’t take any before and after pictures, but I would say that it has added a few millimeters to lashes! Incredible right!

6. Minajesty and Pink Friday Special Edition

You guys already know how I feel about that. I absolutely love it!

7. And of course, my favorite Flowerbomb and all her little sisters!

Welp now that that’s over, everyone stay safe, and tell me what’s your new year’s resolution?

So those are 7 little products that have gotten me through the year and will defiantly come with me to the new year. This new year I do have a few resolutions, but mostly I think I’m ready to find love or some type of interest. A large part of my life I gave advice and didn’t have anyone. This was partly due to my self consciousness and lack of self esteem. I knew people liked me, but I never took on those advances, because I didn’t want to believe it. I didn’t want to believe that someone liked me when I barely even liked myself.

I Love You, My Babies,

Seanie

Happy Birthday to me! Right now I am celebrating one rocky, unstable, but beautiful year. Some of you know why I say unstable and others may be like, “What the hell is he talking about,” But just know, I see everyone of you as beautiful and valuable to me. To be honest I didn’t know it was BeautyBySeanie’s birthday. I was planning on making a post which I am now and as I logged in to give you a much wanted mascara review, I see that it’s my first birthday! My birthday! My birthday! My birthday! So on to other news, I am hereby making it a commitment that you all will have, some type of material, at least once every two (I feel like typing it out makes you seem smarter :3) weeks. I love you and here is the review on *drum roll* ‘Maybelline’s One By One Mascara’! To the review!:
Now I know this looks very creepy, but disregard the creep factor for just one moment. Here are my eyelahes, with no mascara:

As you can see my eyelashes are nothing long, and very short. They are pretty thick though and they are strong, because I don’t every notice any falling out too often.

Now with one coat of this mascara:

Review:
Now I know that these pictures aren’t that HD, and they are not doing this mascara justice, but this mascara is amazing! It comes in both the waterproof and washable formula and I always favor waterproof formulas. It goes on so smooth and as you can see, even with 2 coats it still gives amazing length. I’ve had the washable formula before and if that’s what you favor, it’s still amazing. It doesn’t flake off, it just comes off when your ready for it to… Or when you cry. Either way, this mascara’s amazing if your looking for length. If volume’s what you favor, this isn’t the one.

Anyway, love you and this year will be amazing,
Seanie
