Simple Fall Makeup Look

I loved my makeup so much the other day that I felt like dedicating an entire post to breakdown my look! I think it’s a very simple, but beautiful, fall look. In general, I like for my makeup to be very natural and I do not like to use a lot of cosmetic products on my face. Alright, let’s see what I used:

Face

Aquaphor to moisturize

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Amande under my eyes, around my nose, and around my mouth

Lorac TANtalizer Baked Bronzer on cheekbones

Brows

Ofra Cosmetics Universal Brow Pencil

Eyes

Je Beau International Cosmetics Review + Swatches

Recently, the founder of Je Beau International reached out to me and requested that I try out some of her company’s products. I happily obliged! I love trying new products, especially from brands that are not as mainstream, and introducing them to my followers!

-Je Beau International

In the look below, I tried out several products from Je Beau. I tried out their luxurious lipstick, mascara, and eyeliner. They also sent me a lip liner. I did not use it in this look because I didn’t want it to take away from the lipstick, but I did swatch it below. Scroll down below to read my review of each product.

Luxurious Lipstick in Legendary, $18.00

I really loved this lipstick. It is a red shade with a little shimmer to it. It is not a true red, at least not on my complexion. But, it is a very pretty red. It is like a coppery red. It’s a nice change up to my everyday red lipsticks. The lipstick applied very smooth and lasted for hours. It was very moisturizing, with a very satiny feel. The lip color was also very pigmented. I definitely look forward to trying some other lipstick shades. It comes in 13 other shades.

Cat Eye Liquid Eyeliner Pen, $18.00

If you keep up with my blog, you know how much I love eyeliners! This eyeliner has a black felt tip. It applies super smooth and easily. The thickness of the pen helped make the application easy. The line came out very smooth and dried a matte black. It created a perfect winged look. I will be adding this to my rotation for nighttime eyeliners.

Movie Eyes Mascara, $20.00

I do not wear mascara too often, but I did notice a difference in my lashes after applying this mascara. This mascara added a lot of volume and lengthened my lashes. It is a smudgeproof and waterproof formula, so I had to really scrub with my makeup remover wipes to remove it. It is also a sensitive eye formula, so it does not irritate your eyes the way other mascaras may.

Luxury Lip Liner in Vermouth, $16.00

I do not use colored lip liners very often, unless I am creating an ombre look. I mainly stick to clear lip liners. But, if you are a fan of colored lip liners, I think that this one is nice. It applied smoothly and the color payoff was great. It would look nice paired with the lipstick in this review. It is a pencil lip liner, so you will need a sharpener if you purchase. This lip liner comes in 3 other colors.


 

Overall, I am a fan of this brand. I do find some of their products to be a bit pricey. However, the quality is really good, which makes paying the additional money worth it. I would definitely recommend the lipstick and eyeliner, as they were my favorites. Head over to their website and check out all of the other amazing beauty products they offer! Also, like their Facebook page; follow them on Instagram; and follow them on Twitter.

ipsy Glam Bag Review + Swatches | January 2016

After seeing the December Glam Bag, I was super excited to resubscribe to ipsy! I was subscribed several months and received 3 or 4 bags, but I didn’t like the products I was receiving, so I cancelled the subscription.

After seeing the last two glam bags, I thought to myself that I should give it another shot. And for only $10 a month, what could it possibly hurt? I cannot say that I am glad I did at this point. This first bag was a little underwhelming to be honest. That’s probably only because I was hoping to get at least ONE lipstick and I didn’t get one. However, the bag itself was really cute! I loved the “All Eyes on Me” theme and the bag fit perfectly within that theme! The bag made me think Andy Warhol and pop art!

I will give it to ipsy. They introduced me to five brands that I have never heard of before this month, which I’m sure is a goal of theirs. All of the products were full size except for the cleansing cloths, which would make this bag worth $61.94. Awesome deal when I only paid $10 for the bag. Click here if you would like to subscribe to your own ipsy bag!

Well, let’s see what I received in my bag!

Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths | 30 ct, $15.00

First up were the cleansing cloths. The cloths did the job they were supposed to do…I was just kind of disappointed to receive these in my bag because there’s nothing exciting about cleansing cloths. LOL! And for the price, I can just stick to my Neutrogena makeup remover wipes that I have been using for years now. However, I will still use these until I run out. lol!

OFRA Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow Pencil | Full size, $13.00

Left: with eyebrow pencil; Right: without eyebrow pencil

This was my favorite product in the bag! I wasn’t really feeling it when I saw it in my bag because I have been using Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Gel, which I absolutely love. Click here for my review of it. But, this pencil really filled my eyebrows in beautifully! There was a distinct difference in my eyebrows, which you can see in the picture. Since this is a universal brow pencil, the color is buildable. The more you apply, the darker it gets. It truly works wonders. I would definitely recommend this pencil!

theBALM Cosmetics Mr. Write (Now) Eyeliner Pencil in Jack B. Bronze | Full size, $17.00


I only wear black eyeliner. But, this eyeliner will give me a chance to step out of my comfort zone. It is a bronze color, so I do not really know if it will show up well on my skin tone, because it barely showed up when I swatched it on my hand. As soon as I can figure out where I can wear this to, I will try it out.

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara | Full size, $21.95

I do not wear mascara often, but I do like to try out different brands just to see how they work. I feel like this mascara did not make a difference in the look of my lashes at all. They looked the exact same before and after, which means it is a pointless product. Lol! I also did not like that this product was not waterproof. My eyes watered a little and it smeared under my eyes…not a good look. I definitely will not be using this product.

J. Cat Beauty Blinkie Shimmer Eyeshadow in Tangerine Light (BES02) | Full size, $4.99

I really do not wear eyeshadow often. However, I really liked this color. It was very pretty and shimmery. I also liked how smooth the formula was. I swatched it on my hand and once I removed it, a little of the shimmer was left over. I will have to wear it to see if it stays put…I’ll keep you all posted on this!


Overall, I do have a couple of products that I can and will use in the future, including the wipes. I will stay subscribed and see how my next couple of bags are. If I am still somewhat disappointed, I will have to cancel this subscription again.
