Hey ya’ll! I can’t believe Summer is over! I will say I love Fall and can’t wait bring on the boot and candy corn ! So in honor of this great season today’s post is all about my summer faves!

This season I had more skincare and hair care than last season! I have been trying out some more skincare products. I love been loving the Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner! It’s a toner and exfoliator all in one and I gotta say I love multipurpose products. My skin looks a little bit glowy I love this toner for the Summer time because my skins not as dry. In my Spring FabFitFun box I got the Dr. Brandt Microdermabasion Exfoliator and finally decided to crack it open! I had never tried a scrub like this before after I use it my skin looks great especially when my skin is very dry! It gets it all off and I have a clean , smooth canvas to do my makeup! I have a feeling I’m going to use this all fall and winter!! Now when I get home late on Saturday nights I hate fooling around with taking off my makeup ugh the struggle! When I get home use the Simple Micellar Water on a cotton round and wipe off my makeup. This takes off a lot of my makeup and a huge bonus is its for sensitive skin! My skin hasn’t been acting up as much in the summer so I haven’t had to cover myself in a thick lotion! Remember when I said I love multipurpose products? Well ladies .. and gentlemen I introduce you to the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer! This in shower moisturizer has been my bestfriend during the summer! It keeps my skin hydrated through out the day an sinks in pretty quickly. Now lets get into the hair care! First product I’ll get out of the way because I have talked about it before and reviewed it. You all know I LOVE the Batiste Dry Shampoo when I first started my blog that was my first review! I threw this one in here because of the smell! Plus I still can’t find a dry shampoo that is as good as this one! I got this Briogeo Leave-in Conditioner in my FabFitFun box for spring. I spray this in my ends after I get out of the shower to help detangle my hair a little bit. I love how good it smells. My hair is so soft and healthy looking after I use this! I have been using this Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves spray all summer! I don’t find it to weigh my hair down or leave it crunchy. Yay now onto the makeup I have been loving all summer! For eye primer I have been using the Milani Eyeshadow Primer it dose a good job of holding and making my shadows last! A little goes a long way. Recently I tried a new mascara and put my beloved CoverGirl lashBlast aside (review coming soon) and tried the L’oreal Voluminous mascara!! Oh boy do I love it!! I have not been able to put in down! Definitely look for a review on that! I featured the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in last seasons faves.Yep you know whats coming next the good ol Butter Blush! Another thing I couldn’t put down! I did a review on this as well. I need to get another shade! I also have fallen in love with the Mary-Lou Manizer from the  Manizer Sisters palette. This hightlight is perfect ( insert heart emojji here) I love it! I need to get a full size one! Now I saved the best for last! I am in love with this palette now I haven’t tried all of the shades in the Tarteist Pro! I promise you I am certainly working on it! They are so pigmented and blend like a dream! I’m not going to go on a rant because I am doing a full review on this! You will probably see this in my fall faves! I will say so far it has been worth every penny! Well you guys that’s all I have for my spring favorites for 2017! Who’s ready for fall!?!?!? I know I am!! What was your summer favorites?

MY BACK TO SCHOOL PICKS YOU NEED! 2017

*Disclaimer this post contains affiliate links if you chose to buy something through my link I may earn a small fee at no cost to you and keeps this blog running! Thank you for your support!*

Hey y’all! Back to school season is coming up so I thought I would do post of my favorite products! These are perfect for anyone that has a budget. I’m not in school anymore but I understand getting up early in the morning sucks! That’s why picks are great if you need something easy! If you already started school I hope you all had good first day back!

L’OREAL Pro Glow Foundation 

The reason I picked this is because it’s lightweight so your not uncomfortable. You can also build it up if you need some extra coverage. This blends good which is a must if your in a rush ( hitting snooze). I like this foundation if you want a little bit of glow this is good. It lasts a decent amount of time too.

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer 

I love this bronzer because it applies and blends like a dream! It smells like a tropical vacation! It goes on .. like butter! It lasts a long time! Also it is matte which is what I prefer. Now this brand is a bit pricey but you can always find coupons or BOGO deals! See my full review here 

Physicians Formula Butter Blush

Yes I picked this brand again. Just like the Butter Bronzer it is easy to applies and blends great! It has the same smell as the bronzer too.They have a few shades to choose from. I love that it’s pigmented just make sure to tap off your brush. See my full review here.  

Elf Baked Highlighter 

This one is great if your really on a budget! When I first got it I couldn’t get anything on my brush then I scraped off the top. It has worked every since! I love how it looks in the sun. It is easy to blend and doesn’t look chunky either. See my full review here.

CoverGirl LashBlash Volume Mascara 

I really love this mascara it gives me volume! I have never had it flake or clump on me. I use this one so much! I love the look it gives. I highly recommend this one!

Maybelline BabyLips Color Balm Crayon 

Again another must have for me! I don’t really wear too much lip product but I really like this it gives a nice color to your lips. A great on the go product the one down side is you will have to reapply it a lot. If you do not want to go all out with your makeup this is a great way to have a light makeup look.

L’OREAL Infallible Setting Spray 

With long early days you don’t want all of that hard work to go to waste! This setting spray is great! It helps hold your makeup in place all day! The smell is strong but goes away after a couple of minutes. It is a bit on the pricer side but I do like it for longer days. See my full review here.

So there you go there is my picks for back to school 2017! I hope y’all have a wonderful year!

PHYSICIANS FORMULA BUTTER BLUSH

*Disclaimer this post contains affiliate links if you chose to buy something through my link I may earn a small fee at no cost to you and keeps this blog running! Thank you for your support!*

Hey y’all! You kept hearing me rave about the Physicians Formula Butter Blush so I thought it’s time for a review. I’ve done a review on the Butter Bronzer which I loved! I was so happy when I heard they came out with this blush! It has the same smell as the the bronzer and pretty packaging! The name of this blush is perfect because it is like butter it’s easy to blend out. The pigmentation is great too just make sure to tap your brush . I found that just like the bronzer it can kick up a bit of powder but not too much. This blush is smaller in size but that’s makes it easier to travel with. I reach for it every time I do my makeup because it lasts long time.  The shade I have is in Vintage Rouge. I cant to try out more colors! Oh and a warning if you don’t like strong smells this may not be for you. Well there you go I finally did a review for this blush sorry it took so long! Scroll down for pics and see this weeks Instagram follow shout out!

I’m not the best at swatches lol

BLUSH COLLECTION + MINI REVIEWS 2017

Hey y’all I hope you have a good weekend! Today I thought I would share my (small) blush collection and some mini reviews. As I have mentioned before I am tight on space so I’m constantly decluttering stuff. I’m still on the hunt for my vanity then will be able to collect more stuff haha I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not! Anyway on to the good stuff! | Wetnwild Coloricon $3| This blush has a decent color payoff. It’s easy to blend. It doesn’t last as long as other but for the price I can’t beat it. Also Wetnwild is cruelty free which makes it even better! The color I have is in pearlescent. | CoverGirl Cheekers $4 | This one gives a nice light pink color the the cheeks. You can build it up. It blends nicely and last an okay amount of time. A great quick throw on lazy blush. The shade is in classic pink.
| NYC Cheek Glow $3 | I was disappointed by this one. I have a hard time picking up color on my brush. It didn’t last very long like within 2 hours it didn’t look like I put blush on! When I blended it the color kind of just disappeared. I’m not sure if maybe I needed a darker color or it wasn’t that good.  The shade is prospect park rose.
| Physicians Formula Butter Blush $13 | OMG! I love the smell an the packaging! I love that is smaller than the butter bronzer which is great for travel. It’s so soft and buttery. This pigmentation is great! Easy to blend out and but be careful it dose kick up powder because it’s soft. It lasts a long time too! The shade is vintage rouge.
| Physicians Formula Magic Mosaic $13 |I did a review on this already so I won’t go to much into this one. Basically I didn’t really like it. The color didn’t pick up at all it was too light for me. When I blended out again it disappeared. Maybe if you have a darker skin tone it might work. | Pacifica Sample $12 (full size) | I got this Sample in a Ipsy bag a while back. It has a decent pigmentation. I did have to build it up a bit. I haven’t used this in awhile I forgot I even had it. So I’ll have to use it next time and update you guys on the how long wearing it is. One good thing for sure is that this brand is vegan and cruelty free! So if you are looking for a brand like that try them out I haven’t tried their products before. I will have to try more out. The shade is wild rose. | City Color sample $4ea (full size) | Again I got this trio in a Ipsy bag . I thought these were so pretty. Now I’m a bit scared to use a purple blush lol. They have a good pigmentation. They can be built up too. They last an okay amount of time. I love how thin it is and great for travel! Also they are cruelty free! The shads are fresh melon, blackberry and guava. I was look for the blush to link for y’all and I found you can buy this trio here. | Clinique Chubby Stick $23 | My aunt gave this to me it was my first highend makeup product I have ever had. I love the color. It’s a cream blush and it goes on nicely. It’s easy to blend. I recommend useing a light hand or use the back of your hand and use a beauty blender to apply it. I only say this because it’s pigmented. It last a long time great for those hot summer nights. The shade is robust.
| The Balm Beach $21 | This one is new to me I’ve played around with it a couple of times and so far I like it. I plan to do a full review on it soon. I got it from Hautelook which was included in my haul.
So there is it my blush collection + Some mini reviews. Have you tried any of these blushes? If so let us know what you thought of them! See you next Wednesday for another post!

PHYSICIANS FORMULA BUTTER BRONZER

Hey y’all today is the long awaited review of the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer! I have talked a bit about it in other blog posts. I haven’t done a review on it until today. I know this has been out for a long time and I picked it up awhile ago. First let’s talk about of course the packaging I know such a big shocker right?! Hahah but really it’s so pretty and summery . Also it isn’t to bulky as others an can through it in my travel bag .It smells amazing basically a summer vacation in a bronzer! I have a light skin tone and I am not very good at applying bronzer. I have the light color , I feel like I don’t have to be as careful as if I were using a darker one. Besides the packaging and smell of the bronzer it blends like a dream! I reach for it every time I do my makeup. Now Physicians Formula is a bit pricey for drugstore but you can pretty much find them on sale anywhere. It has a nice sheen to it I’ll say it kicks up a small bit of powder but nothing you can’t deal with just a tap of your brush and you be good to go! Oh one thing I forgot to mention earlier in this post was that if you do not like strong smells stay away! It comes with a sponge like brush in the bottom to. I’m not a fan of it but just to let you know it dose come with one. I hope you enjoyed this review and sorry it so long to get this review up! I picked up the new Butter Blush I’m still trying it out but look out for a future review on that! Have you tried the Butter Bronzer do you like it? Let us know!
