Review: Clinque Dramaticly Different Moisturizing Gel (oily skin) $20.00

the product

I use this product morning and night after washing my face 
it does not give my skin to much moisture nor to little its just right for my oily skin
This moisturizer has yet to break my face out most moisturizers I've tried have broken me out and made my face nothing but a grease ball .It comes in a big bottle im comming up on a year with this bottle as you can see i have barely put a dent in the bottle!

Review: Prime Time Oil control Foundation Primer By; Bare Minerals ($21.00)

This primer is for people with oily skin.
While you wear it,it controls you oils quite nicely 
I wear my makeup from the time I put it on to the time I get home which can be 8-14 hrs 
and I have yet to not have any foundation left when I got home of course
it doesn't look like it been freshly done but it still looks descent.
I tried smashbox photofinish lite and honestly i hated it it made my face oily and gross feeling
this primer is not that good for feeling in pores but the product doesnt say anything about feeling pores in.. i plan to do a review on a good pore filler as soon as i find one!
The product is a clear gel

Otter Box Phone cases

I wanted to make a post about OTTER BOX phone cases/customer service
The best case in the world! I will not use another case! They really do protect your phone 
my 2 year old is constantly getting our phones and doing something like droping or throwing them or even putting them in dogbowls, So they really do keep you phone protected
As we all know u can get solid colors (like the picture above) from or Walmart and instead of solid colors you can get them mixed with either a black rubber case or for the white you get a black plastic case inside from your phone carrier.
Well my husband and I went to AT&T to get ours pictures below
The case i bought

the case my husband got

Well we got this good idea to switch the rubber pieces so he has a solid black casing now and i have white rubber case with a pink inside neat idea uhh.. so when my case cracked and rubber split i was like oh no Im not going to be able to get a new one because ive switched... WRONG!
Last week i believe Friday i got an email back from Otter Box stating I could get a new case for no CHARGE
All i had to was send pictures with my mailing address and name all that sha-bang
Well i got my package today and this is what was in it
as u see instead of being cheap they sent me the solid pink case and threw in my white rubber case!


Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer palette(honest & truthful)

This palette has the best of both worlds you can go from smokey eye to colorful, fun, flirty, to neutral eye shadow. So, let me start by saying that they really need to use a tougher glue or something because the eyeshadow fall out easy! They're very pigmented but you can smell nothing but a paint odor. The glitter is chunky and you gave severe fall out while applying it! I finally just got tired of having to to pick eyeshadow pans up and to clean eye shadow off my floor every time I opened it that i just threw the palette away!
The palette open

upclose so you can see the pigmentation

This is the top of the palette when its closed

a quick swatch i plan to do alot more

Bare Escentuals Faux Tan Sunless Tanner & Faux Tan Moisturizer

This is what the website says
Sunless Tanner:Wish you could look like you spent a day at the beach? Thankfully you can get a safe, all-over tan in a bottle. This luminous warmth is easy to apply to your whole body and works on even the most sensitive skin — leaving you soft and glowing.

Both products


  • Say goodbye to streaks: you see the color as you're applying it, so you'll know exactly where to put more or if you've missed a spot
  • Works within hours of applying and lasts for 5-7 days
  • Natural-based formula moisturizes, hydrates and protects the skin with aloe vera and vegetable-derived emollients
  • Doesn't clog the pores or irritate sensitive skin  
 MY thoughts:All of the things it says are true is does last for up to 7 days i love it i buy a bottle every summer and it lasts me all summer!
The product is not streaky and you can see it as you apply so its pretty much dumby proof.
You should definitely  exfoliate your skin before you use any sunless tanner but it works even on the palest like myself well worth the money

What the website says

Moisturizer:Turn a daily routine into a golden opportunity. This nourishing moisturizer has a touch of sunless tanner, so it gives you super soft skin with a gradual, streak-free tan. Why not keep that natural, warm glow all year long?
  • Enriched with vitamin E, mango extract and shea butter for deep moisturization
  • Subtle color will develop within a week
  • Not streaky or blotchy — make sure to wash your hands after using
  • Lightly coconut-scented for that beachy feeling
My Thoughts: I buy them both at the same time because what I'm told is the moisturizer keeps the tan last a little longer which it seems to work! I love the products together and separately. its so creamy and rich kinda of like a body butter it lasts forever!

My Top 3 Mascara's

These are my top 3 mascara's 
there all from the drugstore for all you budget shoppers out there
From left to right: Maybelline Colossal ($6.00), Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion ($8.29), Maybelline Pulse Perfection($9.99)
These prices are based off of

The Colossal: This one gives you long full lashes doesnt make them clumpy the formulation is prefect even if you use it right after you open it! Gets better as each day goes by.This mascara is quite like lash blast fusion except for in my opinion lash blast gives you more of a longer lash effect

Lash Blast Fusion: This is my favorite out of the bunch! It never lets me down it lengthens separates and gives you fuller none clumping or cakey looking lashes! This one gives you thick lashes but not overly thick disgusting looking lashes! I dont even have to use a eye lash curler when I use this one

Pulse Perfection: This is a great buy if you dont want to pay the $30 or $40 dollars for the lancome version of this! This mascara has a really good formulation best to wait till you use it. I dont really care for the formulation as soon as I opened it. Fabulous after a couple of weeks of sitting in the drawer It gives you longer lashes if thats what you are looking for then this is a perfect mascara for you.

Benefit Box Powder (Coralista & Sugarbomb)

Left: Coralista Right: Sugarbomb

Theses were my first two box powders from Benefit
and i have to say i want every single one of them
this is one of my favorite things by Benefit I bought the confession of a ceoncealoholic to try everything out honestly not loving it! The box powders are great i love them great pigmentation and they all have there own unique smell which i love Sugarbomb smells like candy 
and Coralista has a perfume smell but a fab. smell not to strong just enough for you to smell it in the box and that's it.There worth every penny their not extreme shimmer/glitter nor is the shimmer chunky it has just enough shimmer in it for everyone.I use them together all the everyday!

same as above

Two Faced Absolitely Invisible Candlelight (retails for $25)

I have had this product since April so, Ive had enough time to do a complete review on it.
Two Faced describes it as a softly illuminating translucent powder
It is a translucent powder with gold flecks
works really well for a highlight which i have oily skin so, I don't like to much shimmer it's perfect not chunky flecks its finely milled.
The packaging is nice not hard to open nor close with a nice size mirror. It doesn't have a foul odor has a makeup smell to it not perfumey or anything
i have sensitive skin and has yet to break me out.
You can use this anywhere you like/want shimmer
This is what it looks like opened
And closed

Review on Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette - Ludwig $34

I have had this palette for about 3 to 4 months now.
I must say it has really good pigment I use about 2 swipes out of the pan to do each eye
depending on what I'm doing with the color. If everyone of her palettes were colors I would use on a daily basis id buy them all! The empty pan you see in the pictures was the matte black but it cracked and kept getting everywhere so I dumped in the trash! BOOOO
