sunday funday + becca

ytw.jpgIt’s Sunday fun day! Except not really, because I have been sick all week long and all weekend, D: More like Sunday take-medicine-every-four-to-six-hours-day. Has a ring to it, I think. Head colds are the worst.

On a different sick note, does anyone else like the feeling of sneezing, or is that just me? Anyway..

First off, congrats to Ashley Bonniville, who was our Smile Brilliant winner! Thank you to everyone else who participated, it was a great turn out!

Today’s post will just be a quick little something, just so I don’t leave you guys hanging. I do have tons of stuff I bought over the holidays that I can’t wait to share with you.

So, I have heard so much hype for the Becca highlighters, so I thought it was time I tried it out. I will admit I was a little iffy because of the price for one single highlighter, but I think it was actually worth the money. Will I buy another single Becca highlighter for the same beccaamount? Probably not. But that doesn’t negate the quality, I just don’t think I need anymore highlighters anytime soon, lol.

I really like the packaging. It is cute but simple and not too crazy. I think that between the packaging and the quality of the product that the price is okay.

I decided to pick up the ‘Pearl’ highlighter. The product itself is really nice. It is super smooth and pigmented. I really like the shine and it can be nice and natural or you can build up without it looking cakey like a lot of highlighters do when built up.

handI will admit, while I really enjoy it a lot, I don’t see the hype. I mean I see the hype, but just not over other highlighters, you know what I mean? It’s nice but it doesn’t seem any better than some of the highlighters I already own. Which sucks, because I feel like I should be praising it with the attention from it, but I don’t have the need. However, I am not bashing it either because there are definitely worse highlighters out there. With that said, if you are willing to spend the money, then I think you should own at least one Becca highlighter.

What did you guys think about the Becca highlighters? Worth the hype or too hyped up?

 

 

Mini Colourpop Haul (+swatches)

SWATCH TIME!

ultramattelipWait, I got ahead of myself, first thing first; hi. I feel like I have been posting about palettes too much, so I bought some lippies into the mix!

If you don’t already know, I am a huge Colourpop fan. The lipsticks and highlighters are my absolute favourites things from Colourpop. ALSO; if you plan on making any purchases, I suggest you get them in today before the free domestic shipping ends.

With the change of seasons, Colourpop has released some new fall shades, that are just amazing. My favourite fall colour so far is ‘Times Square’. If I had to pick a colour to represent fall, that would be it. My second favourite is ‘Trap’. These lippes are pigmented and apply with no patches.

I do have more lippies that I forgot to dig out, but decided to just do some swatches with my recent ones.

Now I do know that a lot of people hate that these lippies are drying and to be honest, I agree. They can be drying, but that goes for any matte lippie. So be sure to moisturize before application. Just like you moisturize your face before make up application, you should do the same before you apply a lipstick.highlighter

Lippies aside, some pretty amazing highlighters come from Colourpop. At the moment, I only have a couple of highlighters, and ‘Stole the Show’ is my favourite. These highlighters are super pigmented and very smooth. They also blend well.

What are some of your favourite fall make up products? Favourite Colourpop products?

Marc Jacobs Glowstick!

Hello hello hello!IMG_7898

So as I’m sitting here watching Catfish, I realize I need to blog for the week! So here I am bringing you nonsense, again, not really, but probably 😛

Today I wanted to share my Marc Jacobs Glowstick  that was sent to me from @Influenster and @MarcBeauty; be sure to check them both out on Twitter and Instagram to stay updated on fun and new things!

Until this, I usually stuck with powder highlighters because I felt I could control it more. I do have a few liquids but I don’t use them, ever, to be honest, even though they are really nice. BUT this Glowstick is honestly so amazing. Its more of a cream than a liquid, so that’s a plus. This one is in “Spotlight” and I have to say I love it and have been using it a lot this summer. If you like cream highlighters, this is definitely one you should be trying out. Even if you don’t and are like me and like your powders, its a great product to step out of your comfort zone with.

IMG_7904The pigment and shimmer is AMAZING. It doesn’t take much and it goes on so beautifully. I just cant get over it!

I think this product is great for the hot summer I am having. It gives me more comfort because I feel that it stays better. It is just as vivid and pigmented by the time I take it off as when I put it on. Which says a lot because I have a few highlighters that dissipate by the end of the day.

Which do you guys prefer: liquids/cream or powdered highlighter? What is your favourite highlighter right now?

Don’t forget to follow me on social media! A lot of the times I post swatches that don’t end up on the blog. Twitter and IG links below.
