Review Time! Urban Decay Naked Foundation

Who's ready for this review?! Lol I've been using this foundation for about a month now and I have to say hands down I LOVE this foundation! It has replaced my MAC Matchmaster. 

Now Urban Decay says that this foundation is Weightless, and I definitely have to agree with them! I left behind wearing full on foundation because it felt way too heavy on my face sometimes so I switched over to a BB Cream. Then one day I was strolling through Sephora doing some birthday shopping and decided to try this out. It was one of my best purchases that day lol. It feels like you don't have any foundation on at all, yet still look pretty dang flawless. 

I love Urban Decay because they are cruelty free and every single product I have from them is amazing quality. I also got the Vice Palette which I will do a review on later down the line. This foundation is hands down my new holy grail foundation. I am shade 7.0 if anyone is wondering, I'm also an NC42 at MAC for any shade reference.

Overall Performance 5/5
Coverage 5/5
Weightless 5/5
Shade Range 4/5
Would I purchase again? Most definitely!

I highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a nice coverage foundation without that cakey feeling to it. Till next time, take care and thanks for taking the time to read^_^

Haul Time! Ross, Sally's, and Target!

So this afternoon I went a little cray cray with my shopping, but it's cool. It's that time to start getting some long sleeves and bulk sweaters! Why? Because I'm moving to Korea soon! Yup, my son and I get to go live with my hubby. Just waiting for some paperwork yay! Anyways, enough rambling onto what I got today!

First stop, Ross! I absolutely love shopping at Ross. Bargains are a mommy's best friend lol. I mean if you shop smart, you'll get the most out of your money. I can't imagine spending so much for just a shirt anymore.

I saw this shirt and fell in love with the color! Since Christmas is just around the corner, I'm starting to get into more reds, and greens! And I don't know why but I'm into the whole cross thing lately. I got this shirt for only $8.99 I think this would be great for a nice casual little outfit or even dress it up a bit. We'll see what I come up with in the future!

I am in LOVE with the whole hi-low trend in shirts. This is a sheer button up, so I pair it up with a black tank top. I love wearing these with a nice pair of skinny jeans and some boots or wedges! This was $13.99

I needed a new pair of skinny jeans because I've been finally losing weight! Yay! It's taken me almost 3 years to start shedding all the weight I gained during pregnancy. Anyways, I tried these on and their the type of jeans that fit like a glove lol. This was $13.99

Next up Target! My favorite place in the world to shop for clothes! I'm practically obsessed with the brand Mossimo. If you were to go through my closet that is practically what makes up 1/2 of my closet lol.

So this is my first ever infinity scarf. I rarely wore scarves but now that the girl in me is finally coming out I am starting to expand my wardrobe lol. This was $19.99

I love turtlenecks! They are just so comfy and keep me nice and toasty in cold weather lol. I chose a nice green color. I am starting to steer away from the normal black and gray colors. Gotta get some variety! This was $19.99 

Next is this comfy red basic pull over that is great to layer over a basic tank top. I have a gray one already so I thought I'd add another color. This was $17.99

I also got a regular basic long sleeve V-neck. You can never go wrong with the basics. With the right accessories and pairings you can always dress it up or down, depending on how you're feeling that day. This was $12.00

I got this nice slightly heavy pull over sweater. I don't own any heavy sweaters and this one is definitely comfy and cozy. It was $24.99

And of course my obsession with shoes took over and I couldn't resist when I saw these! My husband says I have a problem lol. But come on! Shoes are just so amazing! They can make an outfit complete! I don't own and flat boots so when I saw these I prayed they had my size and they did! They are super comfy and simple. This was $34.99

And last but certainly not least, Sally's Beauty Supply. 

First up is the Mane 'n Tail Shampoo and Conditioner. Now there's a good bit of people out there that think this is for horses, but I assure you they are not lol. Actually my brother recommended this to me. I'm trying to grow my hair out, and he says this definitely helped him. My brother's opinion is one I definitely trust so I thought I'd try it out. I will definitely let you know in a month how this works for me. Shampoo and Conditioner were $5.99 each.

Now, I have a HUGE obsession with polishes. I was going to get a full sized bottle of one of the red colors but when I was about to check out I saw the cute mini set of Orly Holiday Polishes and chose that instead! It was $15.99 for the set. Next I grabbed a new Seche Vite Topcoat since mine is getting low, this cost $6.99. I also had to grab a new nail buffer because mine met it's death by dog lol. This was $4.29. Lastly I got eyelash curler refill pads, this was $3.69.

Well that was my haul, I hope you enjoyed reading and get some ideas from my random fashion lol. Soon I plan on doing my updated collection storage of my makeup soon in installments, so look out for that. Until next time! Take care^_^

Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox!

So this past week, I have been trying out different products from the Beauty Blogger VoxBox. I am so happy that I got one! I love everything that came in the VoxBox, and I'll be doing some quick reviews on it all. So if you're interested in finding out what I got and my thoughts on them, then keep on reading....

First up is the Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit. It retails for $5.99 in stores, I think I've seen them at Walmart. I really did like this little kit. The plastic tweezers are definitely a big help. I always get scared I'm going to stab myself with my regular tweezers lol. When I tried the lashes out I barely felt like they were even there which is a huge plus. I know many people who enjoy using Kiss lash glue, it dries clear and really does keep those lashes on.

Next is the Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin. This retails for $7.29, and I know they sell them at Target for sure. I've seen the ads for these and always wanted to get them but was worried about how they'd do with medium length, layered hair. I can tell you now that they are awesome! I can finally put my hair up in a simple bun without the use of tons of bobby pins! Definitely recommend this to anyone.

Next, Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream. This retails for $6.00 for a full sized 4 oz. bottle. First off I love Not Your Mother's Hair care products! I have 2 of their hairsprays right now. When I got this I was thrilled because my hair tends to frizz a lot, no matter what the weather is like. Now after trying this I'd have to say it works great but after leaving it in while my hair dried it made it a bit crunchy until I brushed my hair out. I tried it with dry hair and it works great!

Bath and Body Works Mini Candles, retail for $3.50. I am in love with Bath & Body Works Candles hands down. When I got this, I burned it right away and my room was filled with pumpkin cupcake scent. Highly recommend to anyone who loves candles and Bath & Body Works.

NYC IndividualEyes Custom Compact, retail for $4.99 in stores. You can find NYC at almost any drugstore. The consistency of the shadows were nice, they have a good pigmentation. I didn't care to much for the primer though. It left my lids more oily than they already are.

EBOOST, retails for $28 for a box of 20, $39 for a box of 30, and $39 for a box of 12 shots. Now this I have yet to try but I do love Orange flavor. It says that it will boost your mood, focus, and immunity. I am always looking for new ways to boost myself up. This has natural ingredients and doesn't leave you with a crash at the end. 

All in all I really loved this box! You should check out the influenster site and definitely try out these products for yourself and let me know how you liked them! Till next time^_^
