OOTD: Hello Spring! (Featuring Justfab!)

Warmer Weather = :-)

Justfab
Spring is here! I'm so excited to start wearing less layers & bright colors! It's been pretty warm during the day and a little chilly at night so cut out booties are a must right now. I'm pretty obsessed with the "Kadence" style at the moment! They are so easy to throw on and go and they look amazing with anything. I love the Cognac color, perfect for spring and a nice change from all the black booties I own haha. The cut out detail is gorgeous and helps prevents your feet from getting sweaty. If comfort is what you're looking for these booties are the ones to get! :-)

What I Wore:
Top- Kohl's (can't find it online, on clearance in-store!)
Jeans- AE
Booties- Justfab

I love JustFab and can't begin to tell you how many awesome sales I've taken advantage of! The prices are great and the quality even better!

Cranberry-Mauve Look using NEW Drugstore Makeup! (+ Mini Reviews!)

New at the Drugstore!

Cranberry-Mauve Look using NEW Drugstore Makeup
Hi everyone! I'm back with a bunch of new drugstore products and some mini reviews! I tried out all the products you see above and I'm super excited to share my thoughts. In the midst of trying them I came up with this cranberry-mauve look and I really like how it turned out. Without delay lets get into the mini reviews, shall we? :-)

Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation
*Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation in 30 Warm Nude($16)- I really like this foundation! I completely agree with the "fresh face" claim, it's luminous but not too much. I personally prefer matte foundations but now that Spring is coming along and the weather is warming up it tends to be too heavy for me. This is perfect because it's lightweight but still provides great coverage leaving your skin looking youthful! It does come with a sponge applicator which I didn't end up liking, I felt like it made the foundation sit on my face and didn't blend it in. I use my Beauty Blender instead and it gets the job done beautifully.

New at the drugstore
*CoverGirl Outlast All Day Soft Touch Concealer in 830 light/medium($12)-  This concealer is great for everyday but not my favorite for a full face of makeup. CoverGirl claims that this concealer instantly erases your dark circles which I disagree with. I end up having to layer this concealer because the coverage is pretty light. I don't mind lighter coverage for work or for running errands but for a full face of makeup I wouldn't reach for this one. I really like the sponge applicator, it's perfect for such a sensitive area so kudos to that!

*CoverGirl Outlast Matte Finishing Powder in 830 light to medium($13)- This is a great powder! I really love it for touch ups because it instantly makes my face matte and we all know I love a matte face haha. The foundation doesn't need to be set but out of habit I did it anyway (just my t-zone) and I loved it. I would highly stay away from using it alone as CoverGirl suggest because it made my skin feel so dry! But over foundation and for touch ups it was awesome.

*ULTA Matte Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette($20)- I purchased this palette on a great deal and it was totally worth it! The shadows are buttery, smooth and beautiful colors. They are powdery but they blend so well so I'm OK with that. After comparing it to another higher end all matte palette I found that they have very similar colors so stay tuned for a possible dupe post very soon! ;-)

*Maybelline Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes Lipstick in Brown Blush($8)- Maybelline makes my favorite drugstore lipsticks and this new collection is...so good! The collection is the same formula as their creamy mattes, just warmer nudes that are made for different skintones. The lipstick is super comfy, pigmented and smooth and on top of that it's a mauve-brown... need I say anymore?! Definitely check out this collection if your a fan of Maybelline lipsticks!

Alright, that's all I have for you today! I hope these mini reviews were helpful and stay tuned for some more posts in the near future! :-)

Review: Flower Beauty Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette! (Swatches + Look!)

Drugstore Highlighting Palette!

Flower Beauty Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette
I saw a few of my favorite influencers rave about the Flower Beauty Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette so I went to my local Walmart to snag it up! I mean... when you spot a highlighting palette at the drugstore for only $13 you gotta get it, right? haha. For the price you get three highlighting shades and a brush, all in beautiful white and rose gold packaging...sold!

The formula is so silky! They actually remind me of the metallic/shimmer shadows in the Covergirl TruNaked Palettes, really smooth, thin feeling but lots of sheen. I love the different shades they included because they're suitable for most if not all skintones. They apply great dry but it you want to blind a friend or two definitely apply them wet! What I appreciate the most is how long they last! I've used this palette early in the morning and by the end of the day the highlight is still pretty noticeable.

Here are the swatches! I wanted to show you how they looked in natural light vs with flash. With flash you can tell the level of shine it has on the skin, so beautiful! I'm wearing a mix of the champagne shade + the golden one in the picture below. I love how it looks on the skin, it melts into your makeup instead of just awkwardly sitting on top.

Bottom line: I'm a huge fan of this palette! I like the variety in the shades and how you can mix and match them to create your perfect highlight. It's a perfect travel palette too! I'm really impressed with the formula and the price is amazing too. Check it out on your next Walmart trip! :-)
