Top 6 Hot and Not Products

I debated doing a favourites type post as I haven’t done one for a while and I couldn’t seem to find enough products to makeup up a whole post’s worth, so I thought I’d try something a bit different. I’ve tried to keep things as all things that I’ve yet to review yet (bar one), […]

Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Stila Review

Stila Eye and Cheek Palette, Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Review

So over the holidays( I know it seems like forever ago) I was looking to get a new palette but something, not crazy expensive and I kinda didn’t want something that had strictly eye shadows, as I have a few eye shadow palettes that I’m still working through. So I came across a palette that stila had which was an eye and cheek palette that comes with 4 eye shadows, a highlight and blush which I thought was perfect!

They have 4 different palettes depending on your skin complexion. The one shown below as my cover image is the palette for medium/tan skin complexions.  Other options range from, Fair/light, Light/Medium Medium/ tan, and then Tan/Deep. I absolutely love the packaging which I also include a photo of below. I would def give this a try if you’re looking for a palette as your go to colors on a day to day basis. Honestly the past few weeks, i’d choose one of the colors to use as an all over eyelid color, and put some blush on and I’m good to go. Great palette for beginner I would say also. If you have tried out this palette let me know your thoughts! I included the link at the end of my post if you are interested in seeing the other palette choices.

As always thanks so much for reading, hope you enjoy!

until next time 😉 xoxo Faraji

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!

Hairfinity Review!

Hey Hey! So last summer, I cut my hair pretty short, and nearly freaked out because I’ve never cut my hair so short, it was in a pixie ish cut. But I learned to like it and live with it lol. But I wanted to grow my hair out happy and healthy, like anyone else wants to! But it is a lot of work. And it has almost been a year will be this coming August and I would say it grown quite a bit, but not as much as I would like. But a few month ago, probably in January or February my mom sent me a bottle of hair infinity (and a new hair dryer yay) and I was a bit excited to try them, because I had heard a lot about them on social media, especially pinterest. So I have been taking them pretty consistently for about 3 months and I do like the results I am seeing. My hair does seem stronger, and grow a little but faster, nothing crazy. But I have noticed some significant differences in the growth and strength in my nails. I’ve never really had a problem growing my nails; it was always maintaining them so that they don’t break. Ever since then my nails have been stronger and longer then ever! So far I am liking the results I am getting from taking them, may do an update with I finish the bottle or end up seeing other results. Hope you enjoyed reading! Thanks
