Last chance to get October LiveGlam Lippies and MorpheMe brushes for October. It would be really nice if you used my referral link. You will get a free brush if you do but of course, you don’t have to.

 

 

Here is what is up for November. Again I would love it if you used my referral link when you sign up or make a purchase. Thanks so much <3!

Today I received the 2.5ml Changeling Topcoat in the shade Phantom. Wow! It’s really pretty and I like it. Before you apply it you need to shake it. It almost feels like the Ciaté London GlitterFlip Liquid Lipsticks lol because it changes the look of your lipstick from ordinary to metallic. At least that is how I interpret it regardless of not having even tried GlitterFlips, but you know what I mean? The concept is similar and I am totally down with that. It’s also a very pretty light pink and feels really nice on your lips. It is very moisturizing.

I think I am becoming more and more fascinated with Halloween makeup, honestly. It’s kind of creepy yet personally satisfying. I wonder if I am secretly Goth…I would totally be cool with that.

I got another loose pigment powder in Notoriously Morbids The Ghouls Are All Here advent Halloween calendar today. I think I’m going to have to start pressing my loose eyeshadow powder so that I can keep them in one palette because my collection is getting bigger and it’s tidier IMO.

Scarecrow.

It is a light matte gray. It doesn’t swatch very well unless you add setting spray or some type of liquid but I like it. I want to press these shadows into their own pans but I don’t want to use alcohol. Any idea how to do this?

Anyway… find out what tomorrow will bring in the countdown to Halloween calendar.

 

 

This…Lip Balm is the Bomb!

 

Today, I got a little black tube of Lip Balm from The Ghouls Are All Here Advent Calendar. But they didn’t tell us the flavor! I liked how moist and hydrated it made my lips feel and even though it tastes great, I can’t decipher what it is, but I think it is a perfect little moisturizer. I want to order more of them. I’m guessing this Night Kiss Lip Balm is Sinister Sprite or Black Knight. It says so on the tube, but whatever it is, it’s perfect. Find out more about Night Kiss Lip Balm on their website.

Today I received Notoriously Morbids First Halloween Calendar. 

The Ghouls Are All Here Advent Calendar (NOT an affiliate link) and not a day too soon. The countdown starts today, October 19th through the 31st. I’d love to show you guys in a video of what I received but I can’t without a proper video camera. Regardless I got the mini-sized version because I didn’t want to pay for the full size.

I was somewhat disappointed at first glance. It was a let down to see all of the products loosely wrapped in a box. I was expecting a real quality Advent Calendar with little windows you can punch out :/ You know, a bit more fancy for the price I paid. $50. I just thought they could’ve made it more presentable, resembling an actual calendar. They just threw everything together in a shipping box and slapped a number sticker with a date on the products which you absolutely can guess what they are. I mean really? I was a little disappointed; not gonna lie.

The shadow of the day for October 19 is Ghost Clown.(pictured above) I might have spilled it all over the table. OOPS. I Love the color. It’s a shimmery orange and gold, but you can tell there is a green hue to it, almost ghostly. I only wish I could transform myself into my own version of the clown ‘IT ‘ for Halloween by using the product. *sigh

Notoriously Morbid Advent Calendar is a good idea, and so far the products seem pretty good, and if you can’t tell, the theme is Scooby Doo and the Gang. They just need to work on a better delivery and give us our money’s worth.

I also bought a full sized pumpkin halo eyeshadow, (pictured below) but the full-size product seems small to me. It is the same size as ghost clown who is supposed to be a sample size!

Pumpkin Halo Shadow

Do I think it is worth $50? No. I honestly like Ghost Clown and Pumpkin Halo though.  I look forward to using them because they are festive and fun. I wish I had gotten the full sized box. I will definitely buy the full-size next year.

Hi Guys, I just wanted to share my new Morphe brush collection. When I signed up to the MorpheMe Brush Club in August, I got 3 brushes in the mail! If you haven’t joined the MorpheMe brush club yet— you can check it out now! It’s the world’s first monthly makeup brush subscription, and you get $30+ of brushes every month for $19.99. If you use my referral link, you’ll get a free brush. I am so happy and excited for this makeup brush subscription, but unfortunately, you won’t see me do a Jaclyn Hill inspired look from her palette because I didn’t buy it and it sold out quickly.

For September I received these 4 beautiful brushes.

The Morphe E6 Flat buffer, the M576 Pointed Blender, M577 Jumbo Crease, and the M578 Pencil Crease.

In October we will receive 5 brushes.

I am so excited, I can’t wait to add these beauties to my collection. This limited edition EXCLUSIVE PINK Morphe Brush set is to bring awareness to breast cancer research!

…from someone who knows what they’re talking about and how to apply makeup correctly. As for myself, I love the palette, and I couldn’t believe what everyone else was saying about it. It was like seeing a bunch of 2-year-olds complain about what they didn’t understand! Even I am not a makeup artist, and from just looking at the palette I knew these were pigmented shadows that all you need to do is to pat that shit on your lid lightly and are ready to go. There is nothing wrong with the palette, but it is in the application and technique. I hope people will learn, finally, by watching this guy preach it. I think these shadows are beautiful fall colors and I definitely will wear them more. We all need some ABH in our life 🙂

The Daily Prompt word of the day is: Magnetic

Pürs fully charged mascara is AWFUL! I don’t understand the concept. Why would you need magnetic mascara? I mean unless it really is magnetic it would only make sense to use it with OneTwo magnetic lashes. Moreover, I don’t want a mascara to stick to my lashes that way.

Description from their website:

Opposites attract with this anti-aging mascara that has a “magnetic” polymer matrix that wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to instantly lift, separate and define each lash for long-lasting performance.

I wanted to see if there were any ingredients that were on the bad list but I wouldn’t know. It just seems to me that the technology is completely unnecessary.

When I applied this mascara, because my lashes are so short, it didn’t roll on smooth at all. It clumps and makes my lashes look like shit. I’m sorry, but it’s true. It also has’fall out’! If you can imagine. The more you swipe your eyelashes with this product, the more you will understand that the black stuff falls all over your face. I am not even kidding. It looks ugly, and I can’t believe they even sell this stuff to people. Suffice it to say, I did not like this mascara.

I received my bag with five beauty products in a Good Vibes Only pink glam bag. I will definitely be using all the makeup and skincare. I am all about anti-aging, and my skin is sensitive. I typically wear light shades and have cool toned skin.

 

I got a face cleanser from First Aid Beauty. The anti-aging property is rosemary oil and is made for sensitive skin. It’s ok even though it doesn’t have a lot of hydrating ingredients. I don’t love it because it doesn’t provide a lot of hydration or moisture which I prefer. It tightens and cleans.

Glamour Dolls Romantic Rose Blending Brush
This brush is soft, and it will blend in the creases of my lids without a scratch. I need a lot of makeup brushes, so I’m happy with Ipsy for sending me this brush!

AURORA Pro Color Corrector in Pistachio
This is a new brand I’ve never heard of before. I am eager to try new makeup products. I love the color pistachio, and I hope this will conceal and cover the redness.

Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo
I have a hard time finding a blush that I like. I don’t think I will reach for this very often as I wasn’t that impressed with the way it looked on my skin.

TheBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow
I have the Kuwakaribisha light eye shadow, and you can’t go wrong with that. It works great and looks good in the inner corners of my eye and under the browbone! It feels smooth, silky and moist.
