A tad bit hard to get the amount of product you want out
After watching so many Youtube gurus rave about the La Girl concealer, I gave in and started my hunt for these concealers. I contacted the La Girl Headquarters, so they could direct me to the stores that carry their products. To make a long story short, I drove 25-30 minutes to a local hair store, and was lucky enough to get these 3 concealers in my possession.I love using the concealers for a hight light and contoured look. I get a smooth application, with great coverage. I find using a damp beauty blender gives me an airbrushed, flawless finish. I can honestly say, these concealers are comparable to the MAC Prolong Concealer. I find these concealers work great as an everyday use, and perfect for travel when on the go. I would definitely re-purchase these concealers in more shades, once the hair store restocks. A new staple to my collection!
It’s incredulous how fast this year is going. May is here and before we know it, Summer will be in full swing. Lately, I’ve been trying to use up as many beauty products, ranging from 3-6 products a month. This has helped me rediscover some products in my kit, as well as make room for future purchases. In the month of April, I found myself reaching for some of my favorites that I would re-purchase, and others not so much. Below I listed my empties for the month of April.
Feel free to share your April empties!
Bath &Body Works Fragrance Mist in Paris Amour and Carried Away
Hi Dolls! After accumulating so many lipsticks over the years, I decided to make a lipstick palette. In the past, I found it too much of an annoyance to organize my lipsticks and make room for new ones. I tried the lipstick holder, and other containers, but I find de-potting them to be the most efficient method. In the past, I’ve used clear containers from JoAnne’s & Michael’s, but I prefer the MAC palettes, because their durable, sleek, and inexpensive. With that said, this is how I label and depot my lipsticks.
What You Need
Lipsticks of choice
Step 1: Place newspaper/paper towels down on desk, light your candle and place down onto the newspaper. This will limit a messy area.
Step 2: Select your lipstick, twist up, and cut the lipstick at the base with the spatula onto the spoon. Scoop the remaining lipstick thats at the bottom of the tube with the spatula.
Step 3: Hold spoon over candle until lipstick is thoroughly melted
Step 4: Pour lipstick into empty palette and let cool
Hi Dolls!!! I missed you all so much, it feels like I haven’t posted in forever! This post is long over due, since I took my trip to Atlanta, Georgia, the beginning of April, and it’s now May (covers face). I had an amazing time in Atlanta with my family! Not only did I stuff my face with food from some of the best restaurants ATL had to offer, but I visited places like The King Center ,The Aquarium, Lenox Square, and brought back some goodies that I wanted to show you all.

This is my first Illamasqua makeup purchase, aside from the nail lacquer I purchased months ago. I decided to pick this item up, because I’ve always heard great things about the brand especially their blushes. And since I received a Sephora gift card from my sister for Christmas, it only felt right to purchase some new items. This blush is gorgeous from the blush itself to the packaging: It has tiny gold sparkles in it, it’s really pigmented, and it gives this flush of healthy glow to the skin. I find that using this blush the best way is with a blush blush and a light hand. I got a lot of fallout when applying it onto the cheeks, but tapping the excess can keep the fallout to a minimal. Overall, I’m happy with the product and I know I’ll get a lot of use of it in the summer.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE ILLAMASQUA PRODUCTS?
I was a bit skeptical of this foundation at first, since I’ve never tried any Clinique products before, and I was afraid I would breakout, due to my sensitive skin. To my surprise my skin reacted well to this foundation. I wore it for 3 consecutive days for 8 hours, and not one pimple appeared. In addition, when wearing this foundation, my skin can still breath, and I didn’t have a tad bit of shine throughout the day. I have 2 shades pictured, because the woman at the Clinique counter didn’t match me correctly. The Spice shade was too red and dark for my complexion. So, I returned it and got the next shade lower from Spice, which is Golden. It’s a PERFECT MATCH! This foundation is suitable for those with oily/combination skin. I believe I’ve found my ultimate favorite foundation for everyday-wear. The best $23 spent!
