March Birchbox

Hey guys!!!!

I got my Birchbox this weekend and I like it better than the Myglam bag for this month. At least this one has things I will use, even though it is mostly samples.

Color Club Nail Lacquer in Age of Aquarius: I have not used it yet but I love the color and can't wait to try it. 

Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Cleanser: I am super excited about this. My skin care routine works great right now but I always want to try new things. I hope it does erase some of the blemishes I have. It is eco-friendly and it uses botanical ingredients. 

Lulu organics Lavender + Clary Sage hair powder: I don't really use dry shampoos mainly because some of the ones I have used do not work that well but I will try this. If it works I will let you guys know. 

Stila Smokey Eye Card: I love the colors, too bad it was such a small sample. I have kitten but I am thinking about buying the other ones. It came with Kitten, Ebody and Diamond lil. Bellow is a the look I got with it.

March Myglam bag

Hey guys!!!!

I got my Myglam bag and I am very disapointed, It is becoming a birch box. Actually, my birch boxes have been getting better, lets see what this month's one holds haha. Myglam started great, with full size products and pretty nice ones. This month, it was all samples except two things.

It came with

Pur-lisse Pur protect SPF 30 daily Moisturizer, Murad eye lift Perfector, and Dermstore $25 gift card : The moisturizer and eye lift are very small  samples. They are so small that I won't even be able to decide if I like them or not. I will only be able to use it once or twice. The gift card is nice if you use Dermstore, I will probably never use it.

Pur-lisse Pur-lip comfort daily lip nourisher: This works ok and it is too oily. It also tastes and smells weird to me. After applying it I got a weird taste in my mouth. It did make my lips feel better though but then it kinda dried off. You could have also got a Murad absolute bronszing boost or a 3Lab perfect cleasing foam. I wish I had gotten any of those other two because I would have used it more than the lip nourisher.

Keracolor Color enhancing Leave in Treatment: Again, this is very small. I will be able to use it one time because my hair is so thick. It also gives you a "Myglam exclusive deal" of $8 dollars off and free shipping.

Myglam brush: It is a blending brush and I am all for trying new brushes so I will give it a try. It does smell really weird, I don't know why.

If they are going to give people all these "gift cards" or deals so we would buy their products they should at least give bigger samples. How am I going to know I have liked something if I have only used it once or twice? Myglam started so great but I feel like it is going down hill and it started with last month's bag. We shall see what happens next month :)

Nyx Glitter liner

Hey Guys!!!!!!!

Last week I went to Sephora and asked one of my friends which liner she was using because it looked so bright and sparkly. Usually when I put my glitter liner on it does not look as glittery as I want it to. She told me what she did to make it that way so I will teach you guys cause it helped me a lot.

  • Prime your eyes
  • On my lid I have Urban Decay's Verve eye shadow and on my brow bone I have Sin.
  • First you line your lid and make the wing. I used a Maybelline's Master Drama vibrant violet liner. The reason I used purple is because my friend had purple glitter on and I wanted to use purple under with a silver glitter over to see how it looked. I thought it was going to look more purple than it did. 
  • Then on top of that liner I used Urban Decay's twisted sister ( metallic purple shadow)
  • On top of that I used my Nyx candy glitter liner in silver. 
  • I also lined my upper and lower water line to make that silver pop out even more
It turned out really good, a bright glittery silver. It lasted all day long and it looked just like it did when I put it on. If you use a silver liner and shadow it should turn out the same as mine did :)

I hope you liked it

MAC Pigments

Hey guys!!!!

I feel like I have not written in so long. I have been so busy lately. I went to the MAC store and saw this set of 4 pigments they had and I decided to buy it to try it out and see how good it is. I also got one of their new lipsticks in an orange color because it looked so pretty.

Here is the look

This look is really simple and easy because I wanted to focus on the liner.

  • First I primed my lids with my Urban Decay primer. 
  • Then I got MAC's pigment in Star Chrystal and put it all over my lid up to the crease
  • On my crease I used MAC's Rose Light pigment 
  • Then I used BH Cosmetics liquid liner in black on my upper lash line. I got this free with a recent purchase and I really like it so far. It feels I am drawing on my lid with a sharpie. The end result is really nice, bold and even. It stays there all day and it is pretty easy to remove it with makeup remover. 
  • On the wing part of the liner I put some white liner on top and side. 
  • I lined my upper and lower lid with UD's 24/7 eyeliner in zero and used UD's 24/7 liner in Whiskey (brown) on my lower lash line.
  • Don't forget mascara 
On my lips I used MAC's Sheen supreme lipstick in Korean Candy. I really like this lipstick. It looks so shiny and it is also pretty hydrating. It does not make my lips dry for a while (unlike some lipsticks do). I also don't feel the need to put a gloss or a lip balm on top to make it not dry out. It has the texture of a lip gloss, except it is not stick at all. 

I hope you liked it
