My Everyday Makeup Routine

Hey guys! For today’s post I thought it would be fun to share with you guys my everyday makeup routine.

This is actually the look that I did the other day when I went apple and pumpkin picking with Diego and our friends/family. It’s simple as heck but always still manages to make me feel pretty and “done-up.”

I’m going to be sharing with you guys the products I used and what I used to apply each of them. I also did my best to take certain pictures to show you guys the individual products on my face before taking pictures of the overall final product. Does that make sense? You’ll understand better as I actually move along lol.

Also, something to quickly mention before I start is that I’m obviously in no way, shape or form a makeup artist, nor am I trying to be. But, these are products that I’ve really been loving lately and are my typical go-to products whenever I want to do a nice, little calm beat and I just felt like sharing that with you guys, so that’s what I’m doing today ūüôā .

Lastly, I took all of these photos with my iPhone XS in my naturally lit room, so if the colors or lighting or any of that look off, that’s why!

* * * * * *

 So the first thing I do before anything is make sure that my face is nice and clean then put my moisturizer on. For my moisturizer, I more often than not reach for my Dermasil Dry Skin Treatment Original Lotion.


Honestly, there’s no particular reason why I reach for this one as opposed to any other one, other than the fact that I just generally like this one a lot.¬† And even when I don’t wear makeup, this tends to be my everyday moisturizer in the mornings and at night.

* * * * * *

The next thing I do after moisturizing my face, is put on primer. Now the primer that I’ve been using recently is fairly new to me still, but overall I’ve found that I like it A LOT and has been my go-to lately. The primer I’m talking about (which also doubles over as my setting spray after everything) is the Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer and Setting Spray.


At the moment I only have the ‘trial size’, but once this one is finished, I’ll probably end up getting the full-sized one. I originally got this as a trial size just to be able to test it out and now that I have for a while, I’ve realized that I really like it, which isn’t much of a surprise since I have the original Hangover Replenishing Face Primer and loved that one for a while too.

* * * * * *

This next step 2 steps kind of just always depends on how I’m feeling that day, because I’ll either do one or the other first, but regardless I do end up doing both and it always ends up working out. HOWEVER, for this look in particular and the day I did it, after priming my face, I went in with my foundation. The foundation I’ve really been reaching for lately is my Tarte Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation, in the shade Medium Neutral.


Just foundation on my face, at the moment.

I bought this foundation a couple of months ago when it first came out pretty much because of the concealer. I figure that I loved the concealer so much, so why not try the foundation too? And sure enough, I loved this as well, and ever since I’ve been using it like crazy. It has very quickly become a favorite of mine. To apply my foundation, I use the E.L.F. Cosmetics Ultimate Blending Brush.

* * * * * *

After my foundation is on I went in to do my brows. The only brow product I really ever tend to use is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in the shade Ebony.


Only foundation and brows on. I do usually tend to go in with concealer to clean and sculpt them out a little more, but I was sort of in a rush and didn’t have a chance to do that this day.

I have yet to find another brow product that does it for me the way that this one does. And don’t get me wrong, I’m open to trying anything new, ESPECIALLY if I’m going to end up loving it, it’s just that at the moment, I haven’t found anything that I’ve liked more than the Brow Wiz.

As for brow gel, I always go in with the ABH Clear Brow Gel, because it’s my favorite at the moment, and similar to the Brow Wiz, I have yet to find one that I love just as much.

* * * * * *

After I finish my foundation and brows, I go in with my concealer. Now, even for my everyday makeup looks, I don’t typically tend to use one specific concealer. Every time I do it, I’ll use a different one and there have been quite a few that I’ve REALLY been liking lately, but for this look in particular, I went in with the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in the shade Medium-Light Warm.


Like I said, there’s been quite a few different concealers that I’ve been really liking lately, but this one in particular tends to stand out THAT much more for some reason. It does a pretty good job at covering my dark circles, really doesn’t crease all that much (of course I have to set it a bit, but nonetheless), and blends pretty seamlessly with me. To blend out my concealer I actually use the Red Beauty Blender,¬†which I won’t show because it was kind of dirty….lol.

* * * * * *

I don’t typically set my entire face with powder, because I don’t usually need to. I don’t find that I get creasing on my forehead or smile lines or even around my nose (thankfully, not trying to brag about that). I find that although I have combination skin, it tends to be more on the oily side then on the dry side these days.

However, to set my under eyes a little bit, I went in with a BRAND NEW powder that I recently bought and just from using it that one time, I think it’s already going to end up becoming a go-to. The powder I’m talking about is the Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder.


Let’s keep in mind that it was only the first time that I had used it, BUT it did SUCH a good job at setting my under eyes and not having them crease up on me. I typically tend to struggle at finding a good under eye powder that helps me avoid creasing, so the fact that this actually was great at that, made me REALLY excited.

This day I had finished my makeup at about noon, and by the time I got home from everything I was doing and checked out how my eyes were doing, it was about 8pm and only then did I start to see minor creasing. That’s 8 hours..not too shabby if you ask me.

* * * * * *

After setting my under eyes, I go in with my bronzer. Now similar to concealer, I’ve actually been really liking and going between using about 2-3 different ones lately, but for this look in particular I went in using my Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in the shade Bronzer.¬†


Foundation, Brows, Concealer, Powder and Bronzer.

This is probably my FAVORITE drugstore bronzer of all time. I have yet to find one that tops this (which if you happen to have one you like and/or think is better, please free to share with me ūüôā ). It blends really easy, always looks pretty on the skin and smells AMAZING. I’m sure you guys have heard a zillion times that it’s like the ultimate smell of a tropical dream lol. SO good, and cheap at that too, so what could be better? I always use my Too Faced Mr. Right- The Perfect Powder Brush to blend this and any bronzer out really.

* * * * * *

*This is about the time when the pictures started going downhill and I stopped, because I was really rushing at this point lol.*

After my bronzer, I always apply my blush. I attempt to try new blushes every so often, but for the most part I almost always stick to this one in particular which is the Nars blush in Orgasm.


I have literally always loved this blush since the very first time I saw and used it more or less a year ago. I just think it’s the prettiest, perfect pinky blush for my skin tone and gives me a nice little flush to the cheeks. It’s definitely my favorite, although I have a few others that I don’t mind switching it up for every so often, I do almost always grab for this one. I always apply my blush with the Real Techniques Blush Brush.

* * * * * *

After my blush, I always curl my lashes and go in with my mascara. My eyelash curler is nothing special which is why I didn’t feel the need to take a picture of it and show it to you guys. Although, if I remember correctly, it’s from Revlon.


However, the mascara that I’ve been absolutely OBSESSED with recently is this Lancome Monsieur Big mascara. This mascara is probably the best mascara of all time (I’m aware at how bold of a statement that is, but it’s the truth!!). I naturally already have really long lashes, but this intensifies that SO much more in the best way possible, while also giving me really great volume. I literally cannot say enough good things about this product other than that it’s definitely a favorite.

* * * * * *

While I’m waiting for my mascara to dry is always when I take the opportunity to go in with whatever highlight it is I want to wear that day. For this look, I wanted something that would be subtle, but you would obviously still notice that it was there, so I went in with the Wet-n-Wild To Reflect Shimmer Palette in Boozy Brunch.¬†


Guys this highlight is SO pretty. It really gives such a beautifully subtle glow to the face. And personally, whenever I put it on, I can pretty much build it up as much as I want and it still doesn’t ever look too chunky on my skin or like it’s just sitting there you know? Definitely a great quality drugstore highlight. To apply my highlight I believe I used the Sigma F03 High Cheekbone Highlighting brush.

* * * * * *

And finally for my lip product. For this look originally I was really excited to try a new liquid lipstick that I had recently purchased, which was the Beauty Bakerie Matte Lip Whip in the shade¬†Gingersnap…..HOWEVER…..although I didn’t take a picture of it on my lips, after I put it on (literally like a minute or two later), it looked really weird and like patchy.


It was the weirdest thing and I have never really had that happen to me before with a lipstick. But it looked all broken up and transferred A LOT when I would purse my lips together like I would typically do after applying. I don’t know, all I had underneath was my usual lip balm that I literally ALWAYS wear under my lipsticks, so I doubt it was that. But it kind of (unfortunately) turned me off to it altogether. I have another shade from them that I’m going to test out before coming to a final conclusion about it, but yeah, so far I was really disappointed and it was a pretty bad first impression.

But, after I immediately removed THAT from my lips, I decided to go in with one of my FAVORITE liquid lipstick shades to wear around this time of year which is the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Lolita.


* * * * * *

Well that’s it guys, that’s my everyday makeup look. See the final product below. Thanks so much for reading and I hope you guys enjoyed it.

Sephora BeautyInsider Appreciation Event & Other Things Haul!

*Can you guys tell I’m the WORSE at titles/headings?!*¬†ūüėā

If you’re a dedicated makeup lover and follower of Sephora, you know that very rarely do they do any type of sales like this. In fact, they only really do it once a year around the holidays. So when word got out that they were doing this BeautyInsider appreciation sale, you know everyone (including myself) went nuts.

I typically don’t tend to participate in these things even though I am part of the rewards program, and have been at the VIB status for a while, because I almost always forget that it’s going on, and then by the time I actually remember, the sale is over ūü§¶ūüŹĽ‚Äć‚ôÄÔłŹ, since they usually only hold them for a short amount of time.

This year, however, I was fully aware of it and took full advantage of my 15% off everything discount (*which, fun fact, everything I ended up purchasing in the sale upgraded me to VIB Rouge status, which means that instead of having 15% off in the next event like this that happens, I’ll now have 20% off, among other cool benefits*).

With all of that being said, I thought it would be cool to share with you guys all of the products I picked up during the sale, as well as other general makeup products that I’ve bought recently outside of Sephora. I’m going to start off with the Sephora stuff, then move on to the other things.

* * * * * *

*Note: When I started going through everything I bought, and writing this post, I didn’t realize how many ‘mini’ versions of products I got. So this is a half full-sized products, and half mini/sample size kind of post!! ūüėā*

In no particular order:

  1. Marc Jacobs Beauty. I got 2 different lipglosses from this brand; 1 Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick in the shade P(r)each (the top one) and 1 Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in the shade 318 Pretty Thing (the bottom one).

I have heard SO many amazing things about these lipglosses from girls I know, beauty influencers, etc. so I figure it’s about time that I pick a few up to try them out myself. Both lipglosses are $28.



2. Jouer Cosmetics.¬†I got one of their Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipsticks in the shade Dulce de Leche. I’m a huge lipstick girl (liquid and otherwise), so I obviously had to make sure I picked up a few during this sale, and I had a ton of these sitting in my cart for the longest so I figure why not? Similar to the Marc Jacobs lipglosses, I’ve heard so many good things about this brand’s lipsticks; their formula, the way they wear, etc. so I’m definitely excited to try these out finally. These liquid lipsticks retail for $18.


3.¬†Kat Von D.¬†I picked up a mini version of the Lock-It Setting Powder from her brand because I’ve heard so many people rave about it, but most setting powders tend to be a miss for me. So, I figure I pick-up the mini version, see how I like it and if I do I’ll just buy the full-size version. This miniature version comes with 0.19 oz of product and retails for $15 (the full-size one is $30 in case anyone was wondering).


4.¬†Boscia.¬†I picked up one of the Boscia Cactus Water Moisturizers. One of my absolute favorite things to check out on the Sephora website is always the Skincare section, especially the ‘just arrived’ part of it. I’m always on the hunt for new and good products that are going to help, hydrate, and brighten my sensitive skin, so when I saw this and read the amazing reviews, I knew I HAD to get it.

The majority of the recent reviews I read on this were all super positive, especially for people with dry skin (which I tend to struggle with), so I’m really excited to try this and see what it does for me! This retails for $38.

5.¬†Anastasia Beverly Hills.¬†Of COURSE I had to run and pick-up the Norvina palette and I think it’s pretty self-explanatory why…I mean just look at it..take a second, I’ll wait……

Done? Okay, let’s talk about it. Just LOOK at this color range and how gorgeous it is. I feel like so many beautiful soft or smokey pinky, purply looks can be done with this palette. UGH it is beautiful. I’ll be honest, I only really watched two reviews on this palette from KathleenLights and Manny MUA, but regardless, they were both good and gave me the extra push to run out and buy it. I mean c’mon especially with the sale going on, I had to. The palette retails for $42.

6.¬†Too Faced.¬†I picked up one of the Too Faced Born This Way concealers in the shade Light Beige. I’ve literally been obsessed with finding the perfect concealer for my crazy, puffy, dark circles lately and have heard a lot of great things about these in particular so I’ve been itching to try it. These retail for $29.

7.¬†Hourglass.¬†Similar to the Kat Von D one, I picked up a mini-size of the Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder. I won’t really repeat why I got the mini because it’s pretty much the same reason I got the Lock-It setting powder (see number 3 for why).

I will say though that I’ve read and seen so many great reviews about this powder all over the internet, so I’m really hoping that it’ll work the same for me that it seems to be working for everyone else. It comes with 0.07 oz of product. This miniature version retails for $18 (and the full-size goes for $46).

8.¬†Laura Mercier.¬†I picked up one of the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Mini, in the shade Sand. I think the idea of being able to have a moisturizer like this and have it give people the impression that you have some type of makeup on when you really don’t, is so cool. And I’ve read that this is one of the best tinted moisturizers in Sephora, so I decided to give it a try and see how I end up feeling about it. This comes with 1 oz of product and retails for $24.

9.¬†Tarte.¬†I also picked up one of the Tarte Creaseless Under Eye Concealers in the shade Light Sand. Again, like the powders, I pretty much already explained my intention(s) for wanting to pick up another concealer (*see number 6*), so I won’t repeat the same thing again.

However, I will say that I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews on this, but one consistent comment and/or positive thing said about this is that it is AMAZING coverage for those with dry, dark circles, so that’s what really reeled me in and made me excited for it. So we’ll see how that goes!! This concealer retails for $26.

10.¬†Smashbox.¬†I picked up the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water Mini. This is something that I had in my cart and had been wanting to try for SUCH a long time, and now with this sale I was kind of just like “screw it, I’m getting it!” This comes with 1 oz of product and retails for $15.


11.¬†Sephora Favorites.¬†I got one of the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip gift sets. I always see these and think that they are so cute, especially with the products they carry. I had gotten one for my best friend last Christmas and had been wanting to try one for myself ever since, so I got this one because I LOVE my nudes…lol ūüėŹ

It comes with 3 sample sized lipsticks (a Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick in Beach Babe, a Make Up Forever Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick in 105, and a Buxom Lip Polish in Dolly) and 2 full-sized ones (a Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Carmello and a Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Trendsetter). This set retails for $28, but has a $72 value.

12.¬†Saturday Skin.¬†I got this Saturday Skin No Bad Days skincare set. I’ve literally never heard of this brand before, but when I was skimming through the skincare gift sets section I saw this, read the reviews (which the majority for the most part were really good), and decided to try it out.

It comes with a Rub-A-Dub Refining Peel Gel, a Daily Dew Hydrating Essence Mist, a Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream, and a Featherweight Daily Moisturizing Cream. This retails for $39, but is of a $69 value.

13.¬†Free Birthday Gift!! This is technically the last thing I got from Sephora, although I didn’t actually buy it, it’s free. If you’re apart of the BeautyInsider rewards program, I believe regardless of what status you’re at, every year you always get a little gift from Sephora for your birthday.

Every year they give people the option of 2 gifts to choose from and this year if I remember correctly, the options were either this Bite Beauty gift set (which has a Mini Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Chai, a¬†Mini Matte Cr√®me Lip Crayon in Glac√©, an¬†Agave Lip Balm, and an¬†Agave Sugar Lip Scrub), OR a little GlamGlow duo set (which has a SuperMud Clearing Treatment & a GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer). I figure I pick the one who’s brand I had never really tried products from before, so that’s what I did.


* * * * * *

Well that’s all of the products that I had bought from the BeautyInsider Appreciation Event at Sephora, but I also wanted to show you guys 4 makeup products that I got from a completely new and separate makeup company recently.

The brand I’m referring to is called Beauty Bakerie. I was actually first introduced to this brand when I was watching KathleenLights YouTube video (can you tell she’s one of my fav YouTubers?) all about her testing out their products to do a full-face of makeup with them. After seeing that video, I did my own research on the brand, and honestly guys if you haven’t checked them and their story out, I HIGHLY recommend that you do. I’ll leave their site linked¬†here¬†so that you can check them out.

ALL of their makeup products are cruelty free and based completely off baking and everything that entails that; all of their packaging, the names of their products, etc. and it is SO FREAKIN CUTE!!

So for right now, I only got 4 of their products which was a concealer, 2 lipsticks and a setting powder. I really wanted to try one of their foundations, but there’s always next time.

How CUTE is the packaging for all of these products btw?!

  1. The first thing I got was one of their Flour Setting Powders in Translucent, which retails for $24.

2. The next thing I got was 2 of their Matte Lip Whips, one in the shade Gingersnap, and the other in the shade Syruptitious, which retail for $20 each.

3. And the last thing I got was one of their Cake Face Concealers in the shade Love You Latte, even though it looks a little dark so I MIGHT have to return it and get a lighter shade, which retails for $24.


* * * * * *

Well guys that’s it for this post, that is all the makeup products that I’ve purchased recently. Let me know either in the comments or through social media whether or not you guys participated in the sale, and if you DID, what stuff did you guys pick up?! Similar products to mine? Completely different ones? Let me know! I’d love to hear from you guys about it.

Sorry that this post is SO long, but I really hope that you enjoyed it and I’ll see you guys in my next one! ūüôā

First Time Buying Any Beauty Related Products In About 6 Months…WHAT DID I BUY?!

If you haven’t already guessed from the title of this post, today I’m going to be doing a makeup haul! I have been SO good lately and haven’t bought any type of makeup, skincare, etc. because I’ve been really focused on wanting to pay my bills and save for things that I’ve got planned for myself in the future. So recently, I decided to splurge a bit.

Yes, I went a little crazy…but I haven’t bought a damn thing in about 6-7 months, what do you want from me?! Don’t judge me…

The stuff I bought is MAINLY from Sephora, but there are a few products that aren’t from there. Also, although I did buy a couple of actual makeup products, I think the majority of the stuff I bought this time around are actually skincare related products.

* * * * * * * *

When I’m on the Sephora app, I don’t typically tend to check out the ‘Just Arrived’ section, I almost always just go straight to the brands that I know and love. I also don’t tend to read a lot of reviews from people on the app about their experiences with particular products. I’ll watch YouTubers that I love do hauls and first impressions on products, but that’s about it.

This time around, however, it was entirely different. About half of the products I bought were from the ‘Just Arrived’ section, and I got a lot of them not only because they intrigued me obviously, but because of the amazing reviews they got from others on the app. The other half of the stuff I bought were either things that I had been wanting to try for like EVER but never got around to it, or things that I saw YouTubers use and thought I may like.

So, without further adieu, here is my first haul (in no particular order)!:

  1. IMG_9111

What is it: This is the Pearly Girl Vegan Teeth Whitening Pen by Tarte.

What it does: It says that it’s a bleach-free, vegan teeth whitening pen that’s supposed to help reveal visibly whiter teeth while protecting tooth enamel. It’s supposed to provide an instant brightening boost.

Why I bought it: I think this is one of the things that I saw on the ‘Just Arrived’ section a few weeks ago, I don’t completely remember though. BUT, based on the reviews, a LOT of people have said that they tried it and it actually works. Now, not to say or make it seem in any way like I’m dirty or don’t care about my hygiene, but I personally, have never focused too much on whether or not my teeth look super white. I could never really get into the craze of the 3D white strips, etc. (no shade to those of you that are into that). This however, intrigued me for some reason, I don’t know, maybe it’s because it’s through the brand Tarte which is one of my favorite makeup brands, but something really caught my eye about this and I can’t wait to actually try it out.

How much it is: It’s $22, and you get 0.135 oz of product in it.


What it is: This is the Glow Recipe Watermelon Set.

What it does: It’s a¬†hydrating duo that nourishes, brightens, and drenches skin in juicy, antioxidant-rich moisture day and night. The set contains a¬†Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer and a¬†Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask.

*I totally bought this after I bought the other full-sized Watermelon Pink Juice Moisturizer (which you’ll see a little later below). What had happened was….I bought the moisturizer and then I became like crazy buying skin care products and so I was going through the skincare section, came across this, and decided to just buy it. So now I have 2 of the moisturizers ūüôā ….. ENOUGH OF YOUR JUDGING, KEEP READING!!*

Why I got it: Ultimately, the the word ‘hydrating’ is what drew me in the most with these products. Although I do have combination skin, more often than not, my skin will be dry. So I’m down for anything that hydrates my skin, but doesn’t make me look like a greaseball afterwards, so we’ll see how I end up liking these!

How much it is: The set is $45, and I think it’s definitely worth it. You’re getting nearly a full-sized moisturizer and the mask which will last you probably 3-4 uses, if not more, depending how often you use it and how much of it you use when you do.

3. IMG_9125

What it is: This is the Tatcha Skincare For Makeup Lovers РInstant Dewy Glow Set; it comes with a Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, a Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil, and a Violet-C Radiance Mask.

What it does: It says that it’s a¬†set of essentials to leave skin softer, smoother, and glowing. The Dewy skin mist is¬†packed with 20 percent botanical oils and humectants which gives skin a boost of hydration and a dewy glow. The Cleansing Oil¬†is a lightweight, antioxidant-rich makeup remover and cleanser. Made of camellia and rice bran oils, it melts away impurities, and even waterproof eye makeup, leaving behind silky skin with no oily residue. And finally, the Radiance Mask is supposed to give an instant and lasting glow. The creamy, anti-aging mask is packed with brightening Japanese beautyberry, two types of vitamin C, and smoothing AHAs from seven fruits.

Why I got it: After the first like 2 skincare products I bought, I just decided to look through their entire skincare section on the app and I came across this bundle. Now, I’ve never used any Tatcha products before, but I’ve definitely heard about their dewy skin mist and how everybody RAVES about it. Then I started going through the reviews of the overall bundle and saw the great reviews on the other products as well, and I just needed to try it out. It really is a great little bundle if you think about it, so I definitely think it’s worth it, plus if I run out and end up LOVING the products, I could always just go and buy the full-sized ones.

How much it is: It’s $56 (but of a $78 value).

4. IMG_9138

What it is: This is the Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara

Why I got it: This is one of those products that I got because I saw KathleenLights RAVING about it in her videos. She’s one of my favorite YouTubers and she’s constantly using it to give her lashes this beautiful volume. I’ve already tried it about 2 times, and so far I really like it the way it leaves my lashes. So, so far, this is a goodie!

How much it is: The full-size one I got is $25, but they have a mini that you can try too for $12.



What it is: This is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel.

What it does: It’s a clear gel for all hair colors that sets, defined, and brows in place all day. It says that the soothing chamomile formula also conditions hair and offers a lustrous, natural look.

Why I got it: This is one of those products that I had been wanting to try for like EVER, but for one reason or another, just never got around to it. This is technically the first Brow gel I’ve ever tried, and I’m sure there are probably others out there that are just as good, if not BETTER, but I’ve used it like twice already and so far, no real complaints to be honest. It does what it has to do, and I’m happy with it.

How much it is: This goes for $22 in Sephora and has 0.28 Oz ig product in it.

6. img_9141.jpg

What it is: This is the Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer & Setting Spray.

What it does: It says that it’s a weightless, three-in-one coconut water-infused mist that primes, sets, and refreshes makeup while it helps keep skin hydrated.

Why I got it: I got this because I heard a ton of people raving about it on YouTube and on the reviews on the app/website. I also got it because I absolutely love the regular  Hangover Replenishing Face Primer, so I figure I try this one as well and see if I like it just as much.

How much it is: I got the smaller, travel size one which goes for $15 and has 1 oz of product in it. But the full-sized one is $32 and has 4 oz of product in it.

7. IMG_9142

What it is: This is the First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy Overnight Balm

What it does: It’s an overnight eye treatment that targets visible signs of aging for both the under-eye area and upper eyelid. It’s supposed to help with fine lines and wrinkles, dullness and uneven texture, and loss of firmness.

Why I got it: This is by no means a new product….I think, because most of the reviews were from like 2015-2016 lol, but I pretty much just stumbled upon this product while I was scrolling through the skincare section. Most of the reviews were pretty good, and I’m always down to try a new eye cream that’s going to help with these dark circles I have, ‘cuz mama got it bad…So I’m really looking forward to trying this and (hopefully) seeing a difference.

How much it is: This is super tiny, and I’m pretty sure there’s only one size of it. But it’s $38, and comes with 0.5 oz of product.

8. IMG_9144

What it is: This is the Dr. Brandt Skincare PoreDermabrasion Pore Perfecting Exfoliator.

What it does: It’s a unique professional-grade physical and chemical exfoliator and pore perfector in one. It’s supposed to help with your pores, oiliness, dullness and uneven texture.

Why I bought it: I got this because, the first time I got it, it was actually in a Boxycharm and I absolutely loved it. I used about half of it, and then I got Diego into it, and he ended up stealing it from me -_- lol. So, I decided to buy one for myself. The cooling sensation feels amazing on my skin, it made my pores disappear, and my face always feels SO clean and refreshed afterwards, not to mention smooth. There may obviously be just as good (if not better) exfoliators out there (and also probably cheaper), but at the moment, this is my absolute favorite.

How much it is: This is $58 for 2 oz of product.


What it is: This is the Amika Brooklyn Bombshell Blowout Volume Spray.

What it does: This is supposed to be a lightweight, volumizing blowout spray with heat protection for massive, long-lasting volume, body, and texture. It’s also supposed to return moisture to hair.

Why I bought it: This was one of the products that was on the ‘Just Arrived’ page. Now, I don’t typically like to use hair products in my hair, just because while I was growing up, my mom would use a lot of moose, gel, hair spray, etc. on me, and it just kind of turned me off to all of that stuff when I got older. BUT, if you know me, you know that my hair has ALWAYS lacked volume. Like it’s dead straight and it’s always so hard to trying doing stuff to it, and it has ALWAYS been like that. It’s something that’s always bothered me, but it just got to a point where I kind of accepted it and just moved on. So when I saw this, I was really interested in it and figure why not try it?

*PSA/MINOR FIRST IMPRESSION: I got really excited about wanting to try this out, and literally the only instructions it says on the bottle is to spray it on damp hair from root to tip then blow-dry your hair with it on. So that’s what I did, and I don’t know if I applied WAY too much, but it made my hair SUPER hard (like gel or moose) which I did NOT like. It also, made my hair super poofy, which I guess that would be the volume? But it looked really weird, and I didn’t really like it. I’m going to continue trying it out and maybe not spray all that much this time to see if I get better results that I actually like. I’m thinking maybe less is more with this product? And if the poofiness is always going to be my results with this, then it’s probably something I’ll just have to get used? I don’t know, but we’ll see.*

How much it is: This is $25, and comes with 6.7 oz of product.


What it is: This is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette from the Coconut Fantasy Collection.

Why I bought it: WHY WOULDN’T I BUY IT?! LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS!!!!!! No seriously, the packaging is BEAUTIFUL, and the shade range is literally right up my alley. I’ve never bought anything from this brand before because of how pricey they can be, BUT I’ve literally been eyeing this specific collection for MONTHS, since way before it even came out. And I caved, and bought it. I’m so excited to start using this it’s insane, but I almost don’t even want to touch it from how perfect it looks!! ūüė¶

*P.S.: I’m SO sad that I couldn’t get my hands on the Coconut Perfecting Tan-tastic Omega bronzer too ūüė• !*¬†

How much it is: This palette is $49.


What it is: This is from the Kylie Cosmetics collab that Kylie did with her mother Kris Jenner. It’s the Momager Mini Lip Kollection.

Why I got it: To be honest, not a lot of the products from her collections normally catch my eye anymore ASIDE from her lip products. So when I saw these mini lippies, I KNEW I had to have them! It comes with 8 different shades, and they are all absolutely gorgeous. Reds, nudes, mauves, purples, they’re all AMAZING.

How much it was: $42. I definitely think the price is high for 8 minis, but what do I know about how to run a business like that? And although the prices do tend to be a little crazy, she’s obviously doing something right, so who am I to judge?


What it is: This is the only ‘regular’ lipstick that was apart of the Kylie Cosmetics x Kris Jenner collection. The shade is called Give Me a Kiss, and it’s a creme lipstick.

Why I got it: I got this because I love nude shades, I’m a nude type of gal if you haven’t been able to tell. And this color is SO pretty. PLUS, the packaging is badass!! You can’t really tell in the picture because it was hard to capture it, but on the cap, there are middle fingers going all around it in silver, which I think is so funny and dope and made me want it even MORE lol.

How much it is: This is $17.

What it is: This is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlighter.

Why I got it: I’m SOOOO late to the party, but this was all the rage when it first came out in February. I had wanted it for a while from how beautiful it looked, but was on the fence because I saw a ton of mixed reviews on it. A few of my friends had also told me that if I had the Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop highlighter (which I do), it might be a waste because they’re EXTREMELY similar. But I was just kind of like screw it, a gal can never have too many beautiful highlighters, am I right? lol

How much it is: $28 (although I think it’s sold out now ūüė¶ ).

What it is: This is the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask.

What it’s supposed to do: It’s a¬†one-of-a-kind hydrating cream face mask featuring proven, skin-loving ingredients that deliver rich hydration and a radiant complexion in just one application. It’s supposed to be great for relatively ALL skin types, and help with dryness, dullness and uneven texture. It’s supposed to have¬†a rich combination of ceramides, vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory ingredients that help to combat puffy, inflamed, over-worked skin. It’s also free of¬†harmful ingredients such as artificial fragrance or color, harsh surfactants, petrolatum, GMOs, triclosan, hydrogen peroxide, EDTA‚Äôs, BHT or BHA, formaldehyde, or propylene glycol.

Why I got it: This is actually another one of the products I saw on the ‘Just Arrived’ section of Sephora. I’ve been OBSESSED with masks and skincare products in general lately, so when I saw this and read all the great reviews on it, I was pretty much sold.

How much it is:¬†It’s $48 and comes with 2.25 oz of product.

What is it: The Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

My shade: I got the shade Sahel (Medium 2.5), I haven’t gotten a chance to try it yet, so I’m not sure if it’s my right shade, and in the bottle it looks a little dark for my actual complexion, but I guess we’ll see when I actually try it! lol.

What it’s supposed to do: It’s a¬†foundation with medium build-able coverage, that’s supposed to last up to 16 hours. It’s lightweight, natural, fade-resistant wear, featuring full-powered radiance to smooth the look of skin.

Why I bought it: This isn’t at all a new makeup product at Sephora, but it’s a foundation that I’ve always kind of had my eye on, but was always skeptical about buying it for some reason. I’ve heard a lot of good reviews on it, so it’s not that I ever thought it was bad. I just think it’s because I’m the type of person that will really only stick to using 1 or 2 different foundations, especially if I love them, but I’m trying to get better at expanding my taste for foundation, and experimenting with them more, so I got one that I’ve had my eye on for some time now.

How much it is:¬†It’s $49 and comes with 1 fluid oz of product.

16. IMG_9174

What is it: This is the Becca First Light Priming Filter.

What it’s supposed to do: On the app it says that it’s a¬†hydrating, color-neutralizing primer that creates the look of healthy, even skin tone with a natural finish.

Why I got it: I got this because I saw a ton of great reviews on it on the app and from some of my favorite YouTubers. I also got it because I tend to have combination skin, but some days more than others, it’ll be dry, so who wouldn’t love a hydrating primer like this?

How much it is:¬†It’s $38 for 1 fluid oz.

What it is: This is the Glow Recipe Watermelon Pink Juice Moisturizer

What it does: It’s supposed to be a¬†lightweight moisturizer, ideal for oily to combination skin, that’s formulated with vitamin-rich watermelon extract, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and soothing botanicals to boost radiance and glow. It’s supposed to help with dryness, dullness, uneven texture, and uneven skin tone.

Why I got it: Like I’ve mentioned several times already, I’ve become obsessed with skincare, and I’ve been wanting to up my skincare routine so I saw this on the app, read a ton of great reviews on it, and figure why not try it? It smells AMAZING. The watermelon scent (to me) is strong in the sense that obviously you smell it right away, but it’s not super overpowering like lets say the peaches and cream collection by too-faced that a lot of people would complain about the scent. It’s definitely there, but within a few seconds of having it on my skin, you hardly smell it anymore. AND it left my skin super smooth, what more can I ask for?

How much it is: It’s $39 and comes with 2 oz of product.

18. IMG_9180

What it is: This is the Make Up Forever 276 Eyelash Comb & Brush.

What it does: It’s a¬†metal comb and brush that’s supposed to be good for separating lashes and removing excess mascara.

Why I got it: I remember watching a video by KathleenLights a few months ago, which I think was actually a haul, and she spoke about something like this. I actually think hers was from the brand Morphe, but I saw this on the Sephora app, remembered her video, and LOVED the concept of it so I got it. It’s especially good for those mascaras that you love, but are starting to get a little dried out and clumpy, so it’s the PERFECT thing to use to comb out those annoying little clumps of mascara that get stuck to your lashes.

How much it is: $28.

And finally the last thing I got….

What it is: This is the GlamGlow GRAVITYMUD Firming Treatment.

What it does: It’s a mud-based, peel-off face mask designed to tighten the appearance of skin. Its supposed to help with loss of firmness and elasticity.

Why I got it: I had gotten a sample I believe from a Boxycharm or something like that a while ago, and recently finally got around to trying it, and there was just something about it that I LOVED. So when I decided to place this Sephora order, I was like what the heck?! May as well go ahead and buy the full-size. Personally, I thought it was really good. I don’t REALLY think I have any loose skin on my face, so I didn’t notice much tightening other than when the mask was actually on my face, but it DID leave my face feeling super refreshed and smooth afterwards. So I think it was a win/win.

How much it is: It’s $59, and comes with 1.7 oz of product.
