bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Light It Up! Lip swatches, photos & review

💮Hey everyone I have found this amazing lipstick I wanted to share. For anyone who wants to rock Orange Lipstick, this shade is that perfect color. Also, I feel like I always see this similar shade on celebrities. 

☆This is the bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in Light It Up.

¤This is an orange lipstick that is a little more wearable than lets say a shade like MAC Morange.
Its bright but not too in your face. This shade would go with so many skin tones.
I think this would look great on everyone. 

¤Orange lipsticks can be hard to wear sometimes because I think they can wash you out a bit, so if you want,  try bronzing up your skin some because this would look great with a nice little tan or just make sure you put color back into your skin with some light peach blush or just a bronzer on the cheeks.
This Lipstick could also look good with keeping the eyes simple with lots of lashes!

¤The texture of this lipstick is so smooth Its moisturizing but at the same time stays on long.

¤The Packaging is so nice. I love the shape of the tube and the metal clamp you push up and it opens the Lipstick.

¤The Price is $18. Which may seem a little high, but I thought it was going to cost way more. I buy MAC lipsticks all the time for $15 a piece and I love them and I love these just as much and they have high end looking packaging. I think they are definitely worth the price. Plus you can try it on before you buy and if you find a shade you love, its worth it in my opinion.

I hope ive covered everything in my review, If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Check out how I Won this Free Physicians Forumula BB Bronze Booster Bronzer!

Hey Dolls!

If you go to: and sign up for their email and site then you will be entered for chances to win products from their makeup line.
All I did was check my email and hit the enter competition button and I won!! How awesome!

**They didn't ask me to blog or share this either, I just wanted to share how to get free makeup plus give a review on this amazing bronzer.

This bronzer is the perfect shade. I will add photos of how I achieve a bronzey glow with it. I love the NYC Sunny Bronzer which is way cheaper but I love this one even better because, I think its worth the extra bucks (even tho I got it for free).
The packing is very nice. It looks high end. It comes with a brush that would be good for contouring, because its rectangular but I like to use a big round brush and do the outside perimeter of my face with it for that natural bronzing look. This bronzer has shimmer but,  i love that its more like a glow instead of glitter. It looks natural.

Its also healthy for you which is great. It has Beauty Balm Properties like spf, smoothes lines, mouisterizes your skin to keep it healthy looking but also powders so your not oily.

I am in love with this bronzer. Its has a  beautiful glow and i would highly recommend it. You can buy this at Walmart and Target.

Check out the photos and let me know what you think or if you have any questions!

Maybelline 870 Shocking Coral Lipstick | Dupe for MAC Chatterbox

This is Maybelline the Vivids. In the shade Shocking Coral. It looks so much like MAC Chatterbox but its way cheaper. It also looks like MAC Impassioned lipstick. So its a great dupe for both of those MAC lipsticks.  Maybelline lipstick costs around $5 and MAC lipstick costs $15.

You can buy Shocking Coral at Walmart or Target.

This Maybelline lipstick lasts long on the lips. Its creamy but stays put for hours. It is a pink color with a hint of orange.

I took some pictures of the lipstick swatched and lip swatches. In the photo I am wearing Benefit Bella Bamba Blush, these 2 colors go great together. It matches the lipstick really well.

Check out the photos and let me know what you think!
If you have any questions about the lipstick feel free to ask!

Nails Of The Day! Purple Flowers!

I painted all but my accent nails purple.
I painted the accent nails white and put dots on then of a darker purple polish. Then used a toothpick and mixed white in the center of the circles to make the flowers.
I used a toothpick to create dark green leaves. Then a light green polish with a toothpick to give it dimension.

Hope you like it!

Easiest Way To Make Iced Coffee At Home! Step by Step! DIY!!

Here I will show you how to make your own iced coffee. You can skip to the photos for the pictorial if you want.

I think it tastes just like the iced coffee you get at Wendy's or McDonald's.

So this is a money saving way you can make this at home and you should already have the Ingredients in your house.
You will need: Milk, A Mug, Instant coffee (I like Folders), but whatever coffee u prefer i say instant because its the fastest. Microwave,coffee maker or boiled water, vanilla extract, sugar or sweetener and Ice.

⚠ I will say I used a plastic cup to do this, definitely dont use glass because you can break your cup. My plastic cup was a see through cup that actually ended up cracking a little bit at the top, but a glass cup will just shatter because you cant pour hot and cold into the same cup all at once. So make sure you use a mug or a thermal cup for this. I learned this the hard way, bc i usually use a mug, but luckily it just cracked the top so I can still drink it fine.

You can obviously change this to suit what you like. Example: I used instant coffee because its the fastest, but you can use whatever coffee you want.

Anyway look at the pictures below for the directions. I also put the pictorial upon my youtube channel if you wanna check that out:

I hope this saves you money and you love them as much as I do.

VowVoxBox Sent free from Influenster to test and share with my social networks.

This is a wedding VoxBox.

I recieved the Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Prefecting cream. 
-This cream is amazing. I have dull skin and ive never seen a moisturizer with luminosity.  Its great for brides because it does so many things in one for your skin. It evens skin tone and erases dark spots. Its oil free so great for all skin types. It is $30 so kind of expensive for drugstore but it is well worth it because it does so much for your skin.

I recieved the tide to go stain stick.
-This is perfect for brides beacuse if you get a stain it will take it right away. Its a must have for all couples getting married and it works like a charm.

I recieved the Sally Hansen Complete Manicure nail polish.
-This is perfect for brides beacuse you dont have to worry about it chipping or comming off. This lasts for 7 to 10 days on me without chipping at all. Its amazing.

I recieved Pure Silk shaving cream. 
- This has always been my favorite shaving cream. It leaves my legs smoothe and touchable. Perfect for your wedding day.

I recieved Ecotools Pure complexion sponge.
-This sponge is great because it is shaped with a pointed tip.So i can use this around my eyes without getting cleanser in my eyes. It really gets all dirt and oil to keep your face clear for your big day and it rinses your face so no messy splashing your face to rinse it.

I recieved a Riley & Grey card.

Stila is one of my favorite brands

This blush/lip cream is amazing. It is like a cream blush but more dewy and it lasts great on the lips and cheeks.

I love this color fuchsia.  It it bright but you can tone it down if you want. It just depends how much you put on.

I like to dap some on my finger and make a couple of circle on my cheek then blend it in in circular motions, then use clean fingers to blend the edges.

You can purchase this on:

MAC Paint Pots in Bare Study & Groundwork | Photos&Review

Paint Pots Can be wore alone or as a primer under your eyeshadow to make it stay all day. They are pretty much a cream eyeshadow but they set really well so thats why they make a good base.

Here im going to show you my 2 favoirte MAC paint pots.
The first paint pot I ever bought was the lightest shade called Bare Study. It is a champagne color that is shimmery but when you wear it alone its not too shimmery. It lets your eye come through so it actually looks kind of sheer wore alone, but it is beautiful. I love wearing this alone when im in a hurry. I like to use it as a primer most of the time, I feel like every eyeshadow I put on top, Bare Study just makes the color pop out more and makes it more pretty.
I bought this paint pot 2 years ago and if you look at the photos below I've only used half the pot, if that, and I use it at least 3 times a week. 

They cost $20 but they are well worth the money. You can purchase them here:

The second paint pot I have is called Groundwork. This is a makeup artist must have because it works on Everyone.  Its a taupe brown shade. Its so easy to apply. You can just apply with fingers then blended the top line out with a clean finger. This is gorgeous by itself. I usually wear this by itself and it gorgeous on any age skin. It just works really well with everyone. You can also use it as a primer which is nice, like all the paint pots.

I hope this was helpful if you are trying to buy one but wanted a review first. I know I always look at reviews be for I purchase something.
Thanks for reading and if you have any questions or need some tips just ask!

《Disclaimer: I bought these myself and im not getting anything from MAC to review them. 》

Ciaté Corrupted Neon Manicure Nail Kit Review | Photos & Nail Looks!

Im in love with these Ciaté nailpolishes. The kit Im goong to be talking about comes with 3 bottles. 
-The first one is a pink neon polish that glows under UV lights/Blacklights.
-The second bottle is neon glitter. You can dust some on top of whichever nails you want. I just did the ring finger for an accent nail.
The last bottle is a top coat. It seals everything into place. It lets the neon and glow shine through if you are going anywhere with a blacklight that would be fun, but it also looks amazing on its own without glowing.   

I love the packaging and they last amazing. I put the topcoat over the glitter, but if you want the glitter to be more noticable than dont. Just make sure your nails are wet so it sticks well. I find when I add the top coat it really takes away from how pretty the glitter is.

This kit is sold at Sephora and its around $25 but I got mine at a Cosmoprof store for $10. If you dont know what Cosmoprof is, its a store that sales nail and hair products for cheaper, but you will need someone with a cosmetology license to get you in.

Thanks for reading and if you have any questions please ask. Go have a look at my pictures I used with these nail polishes!

Let me know what you think!
