MORPHE BRUSHES EYESHADOW PALETTE HAUL AND REVIEW!

 

morphe-brushes8

If you spend any time on Instagram looking at makeup and beauty posts, then you have most likely heard of Morphe Brushes. They are well known for their makeup application tools, but it is their eyeshadows that caught my attention! I first heard about these shadows from Jaclyn Hill, and was lucky enough to be able to snag the Jaclyn Hill palette when it came out.  I loved the shadows in that limited edition release so much that I decided that I needed to get my hands on more palettes.

On this haul I picked up the Morphe 35O Palettes, both the shimmer and the matte, along with the 35F palette.  I love them.  The shadows are buttery and smooth, while very pigmented and consistent.  Some pots do have a more powdery texture, but it’s not a huge problem.  If you want to see my review, along with swatches, be sure to check out the video below!  Enjoy 🙂

The Best drugstore makeup products for lips, tried and true!

 

1.Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss

Available in an assortment of colors, this product is a solid gloss. The color payoff is great because it is strong enough to make an impression, but sheer enough to be versatile on a vast variety of skintones (hello hotpink).  It is not at all sticky, and I love the shea butter scent.  I have three colors, and I will definitely be purchasing more in the future.

L to R: Pink Pop (180), Peach Petal (150), and Coral Reef (170).

 

2. Wet’n’Wild Megalast Lipstick

These are literally amazing, and for 1.99$ a pop they have me leaving the store feeling guilty.  They are smooth and moisturizing, longwearing, and very pigmented.  They come in the most beautiful colors, often dupe-worthy to many of MAC’s most popular shades, and they just look absolutely beautiful.  I own almost ten of them, and I always have two of each of my favorite colors so I never have to go without.  In the coming Fall and Winter months, Vamp It Up and Cheery Bomb will be my go-to dramatic lip colors. I highly recommend you try these out.

L to R: Vamp it Up (919B) and Cherry Bomb (918D).

 

3. Revlon Lipstick

I own so many of these it’s amazing, but my three present favorites are Copperglow Berry, Cocoa Craving, and Iced Amethyst.

From L to R: Iced Amethyst, Cocoa Craving, and Copperglow Berry

 

The Revlon Lipstick line has countless shades to flatter a wide variety of skintones.  They are moisturizing, glide on smoothly, and wear long and well.  Even the matte shades wear comfortably all day!  If you need to reapply, these also work well when overlapped.  Revlon lipsticks have been called MAC dupes, and that’s not for no reason.  For half the price they are definitely worth picking up if you are a MAC girl.

 

4. Rimmel Lipstick

Close second to Revlon, and considerably less expensive.  Most of my Rimmel lipsticks are from the Kate collection, but I also have some in the Moisture Renew line.  My favorite Moisture Renew: Vintage Pink.

Rimmel Vintage Pink

 

It is highly moisturizing, with a great color payoff.  It is similar to MAC’s Up the Amp, but with more pink lilac undertones and I have never seen it look bad on anybody!   My favorites from the Kate line are 10 and 04.  They are pigmented and moisturizing with a beautiful natural shine.

L to R: Rimmel Kate 04 and Rimmel Kate 10

 

5. Revlon Lip Butters

I have yet to meet someone who didn’t absolutely love these! They are a universal favorite across a vast number of skintones, and they are a most-have for everyday moisturizing, buildable lip color.  See my in-depth review here.  Here are the swacthes again.

6. L’Oreal Infallible Lipstick

Another popular lipstick, this product’s best characteristic is its longevity.  It is seriously long wearing, with little transfer.  My favorite sets to a matte finish, but maintains a moisturizing feel on the lips all day.  This color is seriously beautiful for fall and I absolutely cannot wait to break it out soon!

Ahh, the drugstore.  I can never just go in and get out.  I always have to browse the makeup aisles, and it’s a good thing because I have found quite a few of my holy grail products at the drugstore.  Here is my “best drugstore makeup” list.

Eyes

 

1. Maybelling Color Tattoo If you pay any attention to the online beauty community, you already know about this product and know it is a favorite.  Why? It’s impressively long-wearing, lightweight, highly-pigmented and goes on like silk.  There are an assortment of colors, most of which are metallic.  They make excellent eye shadow base, but can also be worn alone in warm weather for gorgeous color that won’t budge.  You will love this all year round, but you’ll be especially grateful you have it during the sweltering summer months.

Maybelline Color Tattoo L to R: Pomegranate Punk and Bad to the Bronze

 

2. Maybelline Line Stiletto  Ok, again, another popular one.  What makes this little guy so impressive? The staying power.  I have literally done tests where I rub and rub at this and it’s the last to budge, even alongside some of my high end liners.  It has a pretty, satiny finish (somewhere between a matte finish and the high-shine finish of the Urban Decay liquid liner).  I have it in “Blackest Black,” and I am by no means disappointed in the color intensity.

3. Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara (Waterproof) One of my favorite mascaras by far.  It is great at lengthening, but without any of the clump.  It has a great formula that is not drying, but rather allows for very comfortable all-day wear.  It is very black, and has a really lightweight formula.

 

4. Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara (Waterproof) This mascara is one of the best lash extension mascaras I have come across.  Though it had a thick formula, it doesn’t leave my lashes looking clumpy or spidery in the way that many lash extension products do.  It gives a surprisingly comfortable all-day wear, and the lengthening is incredible! I usually use this on top of another mascara on days I do not use it on its own for its amazing lengthening abilities.  Very black color, and creates volume without looking spidery.

 

5. L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara (Waterproof) This mascara…speechless. This has to be my favorite mascara of all time.  It has all my favorite attributes of the perfect mascara, and is long wearing on top of that.  It is jet black, wet looking, and non-clumpy.  It has lengthening abilities for days, but is also volumizing.  On top of all that, it works amazing well on my top and bottom lashes while performing well on the hard-to-reach lashes near my tearduct.  Worth every penny, I will continue to repurchase this mascara as long as they manufacture it.

 

6. L’Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Liner Ok. Mind blown. It’s a pencil and a liquid all at once.  I didn’t believe it when I heard it, but it’s true.  Somehow.  This product has all the smoothness and intensity of a liquid, with the control and smudgeability of a pencil.  It is super soft and hyper-pigmented in a way that puts many high-end liners to shame. For roughly 8$ it is a must-have, a steal, and a holy grail product all at once.  I highly recommend this product for anyone with eyes.  But seriously, my eyeliner was always moving and running until I found this baby and now I am never going back.  On Saturday I was at an outdoor music festival until midnight in the sweltering heat, and when I got back my eyeliner had not budged.  Impressive is an understatement.

7. NYC Liquid Liner

This has to be one of my all time favorite liquid eyeliners.  Besides the fact that it is incredibly affordable, it has a great formula.  It is really thick, almost like a hybrid between gel liner and liquid liner.  It also has an intense, matte finish that only intensifies the black color of the liner.

Do you want to know how to get soft feet fast?

 

Literally overnight. I mean it.  I have a lot of experience with this because I use this method nightly to get soft, smooth feet after a long day.  Before I discovered this method, I had tried a number of different foot creams but could never get my feet to stay moisturized through the night.  Needless to say, this was a lifesaver!

 

What you will need

Thick socks

Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant Vitalizing Body Gel Oil

If you don’t have the gel oil, then Vaseline makes a suitable replacement

 

Method

This works best if you do it right after the shower when your skin is still wet, and therefore the most permeable.  Rub the gel oil into the skin, using a generous amount so that there is some excess oil on your feet.

Then put your socks on! Make sure you choose a pair that are loose fitting, but come up above your ankles and won’t slip off.  Continue your nighttime routine and then go to bed wearing your socks.  Your feet will thank you in the morning. That’s how to get soft feet fast!

 

P.S. Studies actually show that wearing socks to bed can help you sleep better! Now that’s what I call “beauty sleep.”
