Review Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F80

Hello all you beauties! Ok So I need to do a review on my lovely Sigma F80 Kabuki brush. I did in fact get it for free for being in the affiliate program! But this is my honest opinion about the brush. 

I got this brush a little over 2 months ago, and have had more than enough time to decide weather I like it or not. And let me say, I don't just like it..I LOVE it! Seriously! I have been using it to apply my face primer as well as my foundation. It blends my foundation excellently and give my face an all over smooth and flawless look. I don't have to worry about going over areas to re-blend. I even use it to help blend in my concealer. It buffers the product right in and my skin looks so beautiful and flawless after using it. The handle is long but comfortable to use. The bristles are really soft and are thick and dense. It is very easy to clean, but seems to take a little longer to dry. I usually wash my brushes out at night and with in a few hours or the next morning they are dry. Because the bristles are so thick, it does take  a little longer to dry. So when I need it to dry quicker, I simply rub it in a circular motion on a towel to help speed the drying process, and this usually does the trick! The softness of the bristles is important to me, because I don't want to my brush to be scratching my face! These bristles are so soft, it kind of reminds me a little bunny tail! hehe =) Another great thing about this brush...It doesn't shed!! Even after washing, I haven't had one bristle fall out! No bristles on my face, or in my sink=two thumbs up! Over all this brush is great for applying liquid products, especially foundation! If you want a flawless, all over smooth and even application, then you have to get this brush! It's a steal at only $16! You can get it for yourself, or even as a gift for someone else! Click the link below to check it out for yourself!
I love all of my sigma brushes and I just know you will love them too! ! can't wait to get more brushes and build my collection!  

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed!

Sephora haul and quick review!

Hi beauties!! Ok so I haven't splurged on makeup in awhile so I took the plunge yesterday! I needed to pick up a couple staple items and also decided to grab a little more! 
So heres what I got! 
UD All nighter spray, UD Check tint in Flesh, UD 25/7 glide eyeliner in Zero, Kat Von D Truth palette, Kat Von D tattoo concealer

The all nighter spray and eyeliner were my staples which I just needed to get again, so I won't be posting pics on them. I will say that I love my UD all nighter spray! It really helps my makeup last all day/ and night. Well at least up to about 16 hours, like stated on the bottle! =)
So the other products were all new for me,so let me introduce you to them! 

This is the UD Cheek ting, in Fetish. Sorry I don't have a swatch! But it's a very sheer light rosey pink. It's very pretty and not to drastic!
Kat Von D Truth Palette. I love the look of this palette! 

The colors are gorgeous! And this seems to be the only palette without leather in it!! lol Again sorry no swatches!  
Kat Von D Tattoo concealer

I chose the color almond for my skin tone
Now I literally did buy this concealer to test it out on a tattoo and see how well it concealed it. The formular is pretty thick, so a little does go a long way. Some may need to apply more if needed. It is also water proof, so no smudging on your clothes! 
Ok here I am before my application. I wanted to test it out on my Puerto Rican lips tattoo

And Here I am after!
Now you can't really see my tattoo too much, but it's not completely covered. It's still some what visible, maybe not as much, but you can see it. So after a few layers of this stuff I was quite disappointed. So I went to good ol Youtube and looked for any videos on it. Come to find out, I was totally missing a step! oh just my luck!! Apparently there is a pencil called the Tattoo eraser, also by Kat Von D, which is used to outline your tattoo prior to your concealer application to help neutralize the blue and purple hues on tattoos. No wonder it didn't cover it so great! lol And one of the girls that did a vid, also suggested using a color one shade lighter than your own. hmmmm? Never thought about that. I kinda think the color I chose might have been a shade too dark for me actually! lol
So at first my review of this product, was ehhh it's alright, but I'm not sure I can stick with that same opinion, since I totally missed a step! So I actually will be returning the concealer to Sephora. I didn't really need it, I just wanted to see if it would really work. If it did, then I would keep it. Now If I do need it later on down the line,say for work or something, then I will repurchase it, ALONG with the tattoo eraser pencil! I'll give it another shot!!  haha 

I'm trying to keep up with my post as much as I can! I start school next week Monday, so I hope I can still manage to keep up! Thanks for reading!

Hi Dolls! As promised here is a new makeup post!! I titled this blog giraffe because the colors I used remind me of one! lol Take a look for yourself!! 

For this look I used MAC chrome yellow, and from my Kat Von D Ludwig palette I used Leather on the outer edge of my eye, clay for my crease, and tequila to highlight 

I  believe I used Kat Von D's Cathedral lipstick for my lip color with a light coat of clear lip gloss

I don't remember which blush I used...maybe Nyx Desert Rose..?  lol sorry!


I did this look quite some time ago I kind of forgot what I used! I think I pretty much got it all correct! hehe

Well I'm glad I got to update with new look! Hope you all enjoyed it!! 

**And in case any of you were wondering about how my meeting went yesterday in regards to my went well! I got some good news and have some open opportunities to look forward to! I still have some waiting to do for everything to be confirmed, but should hopefully have the full results by next week Monday! yaaay! phew! At least some of that stressed has been lifted! 

Thanks for reading!  xoxox

I've been MIA..sorry!

Hi loves! I know know, I've been MIA for quite some time now! I'm soooo sorry! After my V-day post, I got so busy with work and then preparing for my Miami trip, that I just didn't get a chance to post anything! I have quite a few things I need to blog about! Got a couple looks, a new brush to review, Birchbox review, and I want show off a few pics from Miami! Oh! It was soooooooo fun! I miss it already!! lol

I hope everyone is doing well! Hello to my new followers!! If you recently followed me, let me know so I can be sure to follow you back! =)

I recently did makeup for sis-n-laws photo shoot! It was a great success! She is absolutely beautiful! It was her fist time doing any modeling, and she took to it like a champ! I will also have a few pics to show you from the shoot!  And since the shoot, I  made a Model Mayhem page, and I'm just waiting for them to approve it!

I start Cosmo school in two weeks! I'm excited, nervous, and anxious!! I'm also quite nervous about my current job. I am currently a manager, but am having to demote myself because of my availability with school. I was totally aware of this when I let them know of my change. The company really wants to keep me aboard some how even if it's part time. Which I am cool with! I don't mind not being a manger any more..kinda happy to give up that responsibility! I have something more important to focus on now! so yea, they want to keep me, but they don't know where to put me! Theres no open positions for me to take, and apparently no one within the company has applied or wants to fill my position. If someone did, then I would probably have somewhere to transfer to! But nope...Idk where I'm going or whats going to happen. Well not yet any ways. I have a meeting with my manger today, and shes going to update me. I pray it's good news!
Another thing I have to factorin  is....are they going to give me good enough compensation that I will want to stay? I do have a new car and other bills to pay for! Well in the mean time I've been looking for other jobs for over 3 months now. But I'm not getting many calls. This economy sucks man! I guess I just have to leave it in Gods hands, and trust that he has something great planned for me. He always does..but I don't like all this waiting! lol

Well dolls, I will most likely put a new beauty post either later tonight or tomorrow. I WILL! I PROMISE!!! And I still want to do a give away! oh my! So much to do!! Thanks for being patient with me! I will leave you with one of my favorite pictures from my Miami trip!!

My new pet! lmao

This is the box the mirror came in

The front of the mirror
Super cute bow clutch! I ♥ bows! It's a beautiful metallic  sliver! And theres a cute bow zip pull! There is another clutch in this collection, but I liked this one best, because it's some what dressy and I want to use it when I go out 

The inside is lined with a silk like material. Its very soft! It's big enough for just the essentials when going out! lip gloss/lipstick,a small mirror, money, ID/credit cards, and phone!

elf Makeup remover cleansing cloths

Hello all! I wanted to rave about my current favorite makeup remover cloths! 

I got these elf makeup remover cleansing cloths sometime last year, when they were having a half off sale. It normally only cost $3,  but heck at $1.50 I couldn't resist! So I purchased just one so that I could try it out. My first impression: wow these things are pretty good!!! 

It comes in a foil like packaging and the opening flap is plastic and clasps closed which helps keep them sealed in so they don't dry up. It's pretty much similar to Macs makeup remover cloths. There are 20 cloths in one package. I feel as though they should give you a bit more in the package, say maybe 30? But again, for $3 I can't really complain! lol 
These lovely pre moisturized cloths really do get off all your makeup. I do have to rub a little extra hard when it comes to my mascara, as I always wear water proof mascara. But with a little effort, it does comes off. They are even infused with aloe Vera extract to help moisturize your skin!

click to see larger view

The directions on the back suggest rinsing with warm water after use. I recommended this as well, or simply follow with your daily face wash routine.. These really don't leave your face feeling greasy, so if you don't rinse you will still be fine.

Over all I really do love these very much! I love them so much, the last time I ordered them, I order 3 packs of em! I am now on my last one and will diffidently be ordering more soon! Go check them out here
Be aware: last time I checked, they were sold out of them! That's just how popular they are! So hurry and get yours! You have no excuse! They only cost $3! 

Thanks for reading everyone!
