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

Maybelline Nude Airfoam Review

Hello!
I hope all is going well! Today I have a review on the Maybelline Nude Airfoam foundation.
Look:

Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam

When you first get the foundation, it comes in a can-like bottle, with a pump and cover on the top. I feel as if this is very convenient because of how small it is and slim to fit in a bag or other area comfortably. When pumped out it looks and feels JUST like a hair mousse!
Coverage:
This foundation has the name “Nude” in it, so you know that with this your going to be looking at a light to medium coverage, however I find that in the right hands this can hold a buildable coverage. Notice that I said in the right hands. If you are a beginner then I would advice that you use this lightly. Also this is intended for “normal skin” meaning in between dry and oily. If you want to use this foundation, and you aren’t normal skin, then for oily I would use some milk of magnesia or for dry an oil based moisturizer.
Shades:
I would like to say that this foundation has a wide variety of shades, but I would be lying to myself and you. This has a wide variety of shades for more fair to medium shades, but that’s about it. For my darker sistas we have about 3 shades for us (Caramel, Light Cocoa, Cocoa) and that’s about it. I would say that the can for these products are a little misleading, and I would suggest that you buy it, rather than putting your hand up to the can to test your shade. I myself bought the Light Cocoa and Cocoa shades, and have only used the Light Cocoa as a highlighter and have yet to use the Cocoa like I thought I would.

Final Thoughts:

This is perfect for people who want a “nude” look, so light coverage. If you are having trouble acne or blisters I would say to pass this. Also if you have extremely oily skin, as it will slip and slide on its own.
Thanks for reading!

I never knew. I never knew that 1 day would turn into a week, then a week into 3 months. From the post on October 23rd my life took drastic changes and things began to require more and more of my time. To be honest I feel like I have abandoned you all. But the thing is, since I’ve come back, I looked at my views and some of you have been faithfully checking the blog for 3 months looking for your well deserved post. Some of you just gave up, but how could I blame you? So here you go!

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lashes:

I have to say I really LOVE these lashes. They aren’t at all natural, because if the length and volume, but they aren’t too over the top. The lash is kind of thick to the touch of it, but it’s very moveable.  Now I know that the Marilyn Monroe Collection has been moved out from MAC, but these lashes are still available because they weren’t with the collection. They are the 35 Lash that many people have been seen wearing. Even Katy Perry!

For a little information on MAC, the next collection is ARCHIE’S GIRLS! I’m so excited for it!

For the surprise, it is a review for the Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation:

Size: 1 oz

Coverage: Medium – Full Buildable

Finish: Natural, Semi-Matte

What It Claims:

15-hour staying power. Flawless all day. This worry-free, long-wearing makeup stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity, nonstop activity. Won’t change color, smudge or come off on clothes. Feels lightweight and comfortable. Now the flawless look you see in the morning is the look you keep all day.

What I Think: I must start off by saying that this is the newer formula that I’m reviewing and it’s not the original. Now on the website customer reviews many people are being very rude to the new product and way too harsh. The product isn’t what it used to be and I’m defiantly not saying that it is, but its a good product. Better then some other products I’ve tried, that’s for sure.

So as you pump it out, the first thing you notice is that it’s defiantly thinner than it used to be, but a great consistency. It’s a little thinner than the MUFE HD Foundation. As you apply it, it blends out very well and silky. In this Winter weather down here in Maryland, you DON’T have to powder this and I have very oily skin. This is water resistant, but not completely waterproof. I say this, because with a finger drenched in water I rubbed my face and I saw no foundation come out on my finger. When I stepped out of the shower it was still their, but a very small amount that eventually came off with the swipe of my towel.

Final Thoughts: I defiantly think that you should give it a try, if your not finding something that is more natural with a light feel. It does give coverage and it can be built up, with a natural glowing look. This can be used in the winter and summer and applied with a domed, foundation, or concealer brush or a sponge.

Aside from everything else I would really love to say that you for these amazing views recently. WordPress just added a feature where you can see where your views are and from what country and I want to thank you :).
