Tarte Review

Tarte tarteist lash paint Mascara Review

Hey lovelies,

So over the holidays I wanted to splurge and get some new products, and have been eyeing this mascara for some time now. So as you may know I had reviewed the benefit mascara and was my go to mascara. It gave great length and volume without being clumpy, only problem I really had with it was that my lashes seemed dry after I put on a few coats and didn’t really like that.

But one of my friends suggested I try Tarte’s recent release of their tarteist mascara which, is similar to the benefit they’re real mascara but I believe its a better formula. So I decided to try it out and I feel in love. It has been the only thing I have been really wearing on a day-to-day basis. So I would highly suggest to try out this mascara if you’re needing to go back to the store and replenish or if you’re looking to try a new mascara. Its the same price as the they’re real mascara so definitely believe that its worth it ;).

Maybe ill do a side by side comparison if you guys want to see the difference, I would just need to go get another they’re real mascara. Let me know.

Thanks for reading, until next time

5 Tips For Shopping

  1. High End

Now we all know that brand names can be very expensive and out of the price range for many. Especially college students like myself. But when I am shopping at the mall, that doesn’t stop me from going into some of my favorite brand names stores. I thought I’d share with you a more recent experience. So I needed some new jeans, just because it was time for some new ones. So I went to the store most women my age go for some new jeans, Pacsun, Hollister, and American Eagle. All of which are some of my favorite places to shop but decided against buying jeans from them this time. So Finally before leaving I went into BeBe, one of my favorite brand name stores. Just my luck they were having a sale on jeans at 50%, so I was able to buy a pair of pants for the same price I was planning to pay for a pair of American Eagle. Which of course is preferred especially when you are talking about longevity and quality. To make a long story short, don’t be afraid to walk into some of your high end stores, because you may just find a fabulous deal.

 

 

  1. You don’t always need a Partner

I know we always tend to go shopping with someone, but I don’t always like it. Just for the simple fact sometimes I feel rushed, or if the person doesn’t like the stores that I enjoy shopping at, then I can be more “free” just to take my time going through stores and going to all of the places I enjoy going to. So occasionally I like to go shopping by myself, just because I can be able to take my time look around well.

 

  1. Try It On

I need to follow this advice more when I go shopping, as I am not a big fan of going in the dressing room to try on an outfit. Which has resulted in me buying something and it not fitting well or looking how I want it to when I get home. Save yourself the time and trip and try on whatever you are going to buy to make sure it looks good

 

  1. Keep An Open Mind

This is something I have more recently started doing, instead of going for styles or makeup colors I would normally get or makeup colors I have tried venturing from that. With wonderful result as well, being able to open yourself to new styles can open up variety and you can discover something that looks great that you would have never tried otherwise. So when I go shopping I try to pick up things that I have never worn before to see if I would like it or not.

  1. Coupons!

Nearly every time I go into the mall or a specific store, I check to see if they have any sales going on or if they have special coupons online. I create app that I use is called shopular, you can add most the store that you enjoy shopping at. One things that is helpful is that it sends you notifications only when you are near the store, if that store has a sale or coupons. So this helps save some dinero especially when shopping on a budget.

 

I hope that you enjoyed my article, so I haven’t posted in so long! Many new articles are in the works! Let me know some of your favorite stores or any shopping tips you may have!

Alice In Wonderland

Hey Hey My lovelies,

So I’ve decided that every once in awhile I am going to share some of my photo from shoots that I go on and talk about my experience and journey as an aspiring young model.

It’s something that I am absolutely in love with and would love to share it with you guys. Now, my last shoot was tons of fun! And something that I hadn’t done before. The theme of the shoot was an “Alice in Wonderland” themed shoot. Which I was excited about since I had that inspiration. Would love to hear you guys feedback on wether or not you would like to hear about my experiences and how you think my photos come out!

IMG_4678

The shoot took place on a hiking trail in a “forest”, not quite sure what to call it for sure as hiking and being in the set up is not something that I was too familiar with. Also to mention it was about 90 degrees and bugs are 10x worst when you’re in the trees “hiking, but I sucked it up for the photos. Which came out way better then expected.

I am going to keep it short and sweet, again I would love to hear everyone’s feedback on what they think!!

NYX Review!

Hey Hey!

SO Sorry its been a minute since I posted a beauty article ( school is finally over yay).

So I am here to share with you of course of lip products. So far some time matte lips are all about the rave, and I’m here to talk to you about some good and inexpensive lip creams by NYX. I had discovered them about a year ago, when I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and try a matte dark purple lip cream which is the one on the far left called Transylvania, and when I first tried it I feel in love!!

 

It compliments me so well, and I believe could go well with so many skin complexions, and I highly recommend them! So of course I had to try other lip creams in the matte collection, and this is when I picked up San Paulo which is the middle pink one, and Monte Carlo which is the far right red one. I love all of them and they last a few hours before you need to reapply.

I wear them out all the time and sometime get compliments ;). So if you’re in the market for a new matte lipgloss and want to try something different and not spend $20 on a lip stick. Check out NYX soft matte lip creams! With only $6 a piece. I do want to get more in the collection and also check out their NYX lingerie collection since I’ve heard good things!

Thanks so much for reading!! Tell me your experiences with NYX!

Promise you’ll hear from me soon!

Beauty Blogger Tag(YAY)

So I have recently got tagged by  BeautyByReeva who has a very lovely blog, I would suggest going to check her out since she is just starting up as well. And would love to thank her (thanks!)

Some Rules (of course)

Tag the blogger who nominated you.

Answer the questions.

Come up with questions of your own.

Nominate other bloggers and don’t forget to tell them.

Well Lets get started!!

-Why did you start your blog?

Well I started my blog because I have a deep passion for beauty, fashion, and the business world. I wanted to share what I know and discover others that have the same passion as I do. Which is always fun and such a learning experience.

-Fav makeup and fashion item?

Favorite makeup item would be mascara or eye liner, can’t make a choice. Every time I do my makeup 9/10 I have on either mascara, eyeliner, or both. As for fashion item, is something high waisted, either pants or shorts. It is so versatile and easy to pair with other items.

-Fav celebrity?

No brainer, Taylor Swift of course. (I actually have a post about one of her quotes)

-What do you enjoy doing when relaxing or having time to chill?

While relaxing I enjoy listening to music and discovering new songs, or binge watching on hulu or netflix ( currently obsessed with Sleepy Hollow)

-On a night out, heels or flats?

Depends, since I’m a bit taller I typically go for flats, but for special occasions I bring out the heels.

-If you had the opportunity to see what your life would be like for the next 2 years and couldn’t change it, would you still want to know what’s going to happen?

I probably wouldn’t want to know, I love the mystery and spontaneous things in life, and would prefer not to know things in the future.

-Your best friend tells you a lie, and you know what the truth is, would you call him or her out on it or let it slide?

No, I would definitely call them out and find out why they lied.

-Jeans or dress?

A Dress of course

-Long walks on the beach or rollercoaster rides?

Probably long walks on the beach, a bit more relaxing then a rollercoaster rides.

-Fav snack?

Sweet Potatoes Chip for the win.

Thanks so much for reading!! Now of course I am going to nominate a few of my favorite blogs
