Swatched: Tarte 12-hour Amazonian Clay Blush

 Hey adventurers! I picked this blush up a few months ago actually at Sephora when I dropped in there to get something and I just recently discovered it--still in the packaging >.<. It's not a fall color, it's more of a summer color. It's called Tipsy. It's a coral shade that is more orange than anything.

The pigmentation is completely there. Very pigmented blush this was one swipe on the back of my hand. I've heard that these were very pigmented and they are. It got a little splotchy near the end of the swatch as it trailed off.

I haven't got to wear this blush yet as I mentioned I found it in the back of my collection. But I'll bust it out on one of the nice days if I think about it. I'll test it out and write a review of the wear, watch out for that.

Have you tried these? If so, did you like them?

Do you watch YouTube video's?

September beauty wish list!

Hey adventures! Today's my wishlist for the month, I'm trying out this "collage" look, tell me if you like this way or last months way(linked here) On to the list!

1. Diesel Loverdose perfume- I chose this just for the packaging, I haven't ever smelled this perfume I just love the packaging and have heard some raves about it and would love to try it out. Yes, I would smell it to make sure I'd like it first before I purchased it, but I think it would look good in my perfume collection! 

2. Clinique even better dark circle eraser- I have such a bag problem with under eye circles and I want to solve it. The quicker the better, I've heard a lot about clinique products and have a few, but haven't heard much about this. Just the commercials. I just need something that will make my under eye circles disappear rather than concealer which doesn't change anything. 

3. Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Toasted- I love this shade. It's my most used shade in the Naked palette as it is my go to one color look, just blend it out on the lid and it looks amazing. I wear it a lot when I'm just going out to chill or just hanging out at home. I love this shade. I'm not sure of the new formula which is another reason I'd like to try it. In case you don't know, Urban Decay just reformulated all of their eyeshadows so it might not necessarily be as good or much better I don't know. But would like to find out!

4. Dolce And Gabana Light blue- I love this fragrance, I've had only the sample size, but I used it up way too quickly. I LOVED it. This is a lot of peoples favorites as well and I would love to own the full size. This perfume is light and airy and perfect for everyday wear.

5. OCC Lip Tar- Do I even have to say why it's on here? I've heard AMAZING things about the OCC lip tars. I'm definitely going to try these out. On downside is that Sephora only carries 1 color on the website.

6. Sephora Blending brush- I need a higher quality blending brush. Nothing too special about it here. It's a 15 dollar brush, which is expensive for me; but I need something higher quality than the MyGlam one.

7. Tarte Lipsticks- Tarte just came out with new lipsticks and I'd love to try them as Lipstick and lip products in general are my absolute favorite things ever.

Review: Formula 10.0.6 Keep Me Clean Facial Wipes

Hey adventurers! Today we have another review, this time of my favorite facial wipes! If you watch me on YouTube you'd be very familiar with these, I mentioned these a lot on my channel. I love these wipes, they take the makeup off with ease! It comes with 25 wipes and a price tag of around 5 dollars. I'm not sure where to find these because I get them from the NEX and I haven't seen the brand anywhere else as far as I remember right now. (Target MIGHT have the brand, but I'm not 100% on that)

These wipes are super moist, they are probably the wettest wipes I've used ever, I do store them upside down, but they seem to just come more moist than others I've tried. When removing my makeup, it comes off with ease, I use one of these wipes and follow up with my MAC makeup remover--the name is escaping me right now-- and then my formula 10.0.6 facial cleanser and the MAC doesn't really get anything else more off but the facial cleanser will alway get more off.

I find that mascara is no problem with these wipes, I don't use any waterproof mascara so I can't put in my say on that but my regular mascara it comes off with no problem. Eyeshadow--one swipe and its gone. I love these wipes. Love them! If you have seen them in your area I highly recommend these!

I have repurchased them over and over again. I seriously recommend them.

Memoire Liquid: Amour Liquide Body Cream.

     Hey guys! I haven't been as up-to-date on this blog as I wanted to be, but I'm back for a review on another item I got from my NewBeauty Test Tube. It's Memoire Liquide Amour Liquide; and it's a body cream. I also got two perfume samples of the same 'memoir liquide' brand. The scent is a light but very sweet kind of cotton candy-esque. The cream itself is very thick, it's a kind of thick that when you stop squeezing the tube a little bit gets sucked back into it. The color is an off white and it's extremely moisturizing.
     When applying it doesn't feel greasy and a little goes a long way with this cream. The scent lingers a long while. All in All I'm very happy with getting this product. I didn't think that I was going to use it when I got it, but it's very nice. Makes the skin very soft and smell good. It's the 5.1 oz bottle and I think it's going to take a long while to get through.

Sorry it's such a short post, I was lucky to get these few minutes to type this out. Luckily they're distracted with the pictures we had all taken.

Thanks so much for reading!

Have you tried this cream? interested in it?

NOTD: Sally Hansen's Black out & Color Club's Hot couture

Hey adventurers! Today's post is another nail of the day. I just took smoldering off today and it was kind of overdue but I wanted my black nail back. I don't know about you, but there is something so sleek about black nails. I have only been painting my nails continuously since about March when I took  my fake nails off and so I'm no pro at painting my nails as you can probably tell.

Black out by Sally hansen's Xtreme wear line has always been a favorite of mine because it's so black and smooth and dries fast. I just purchased Color Club's Hot couture from Bed Bath and beyond and this one surprised me actually; in the bottle it's pink, but on the nails I really see blue sparkles. It may be because of the dark color it's on top of but I still think it's a gorgeous top coat. I personally I love black with sparkles on the nails so I'm in love. :)

This is the order of which I did them, Nutra Nail strengthener, black out, hot couture, and my top coat that I chose is Insta dri!

Hello Adventerers! I'm a little aggravated right now, I took tons of pictures of my birchbox (ie. opening it, each layer, how it's packaged) and I just checked right now and about 50% of the photos are corrupted soooo just deal with me, haha. I just literally deleted all the photos off my camera about 20 minutes ago because I usually check cause my iPhoto has been known to do that. Butttt I didn't check these. :( But anyways August's birchbox was "Beauty School Supply Kit" the box it came in was yellow this month instead of the usual pink and I guess they just took the extra bits that they had from the previous year and threw them into a box and named it Beauty school...

So here are the contents of my box, this was rumored to be one of the better boxes which I guess I'm glad about cause if you've been watching my youtube video's you'd know I kind of get the short end of the stick a bit. The items I got were the shick razor, a pixie lip color, a stretch silkening creme which is actually for your hair, a little sample of yu-be cream, and a sample of viva la juicy la flour--which in my opinion has the cutest bottle ever! The La Fleur doesn't really smell different to me because I own the full size of the regular viva la juicy and so I can say that. 

Overall I'm ehh about the box. I don't really expect much from Birchbox any more though. I'm debating about canceling it to be honest. What do you think? Should I cancel it? or no? Did you cancel your subscription? if so, why? if not, are you thinking about it?
