This post is going to be a little bit different. It’s not beauty related at all, but just more so a post, asking you guys for some help. So, when I started my blog last October, I didn’t know anything about self hosted websites or any of that. I still don’t really, lol that’s why I’m making this post.
I’ve been really curious about it for a while because, while I love WordPress.. I’m restricted to having a great layout that I want, like how I see other blogs have these really amazing layouts. I mean, that’s pretty much my main concern. I’ve had to use a basic one that came with my WordPress plan. I want ones that I can buy and install and those ones won’t allow it on here.
I love makeup. It’s pretty obvious. Since I was in middle school, my favorite makeup products to collect were lipsticks. The same is true to this day. I still love to wear and collect all kinds of lipstick, lipgloss, lip products in general.
My second favorite makeup products to collect are – highlighters. (Throw blush right beside that as well) I love a good blinding highlighter! Is there anything better? A blinding strobe of color illuminating your face, body, or wherever you chose to accentuate?
Pink is my favorite color… however, I realized I hardly do many nail designs (or wear many fashion pink colored items) weird. I think when it comes to my nails, I love pink and how girly it is, but I like to experiment with color and fun designs. Pink is girly, but I don’t always want “girly” when it comes to my nails. Sometimes I like to be edgy.
Apparently, this month, I was going for the pink “girly” vibe. 🙂 I say this every time I get my nails done… but… I. Am. Obsessed.
How soft and gorgeous these are in person is so amazing. Not to mention how SPARKLY! A picture doesn’t do them justice.
If you know me, you know I love my glitter! I love sparkles, I love shiny things, My highlighter has to be seen from space. I like to shine!! My nails are no different.
Hi, I’m like a cat and my attention is immediately drawn to anything glittery or sparkly. I catch myself staring at my nails and the pretty sparkles all the time! 🙂
With so many new products and new releases coming out regularly… it’s almost impossible to keep up and buy it all. I mean, we all want it all.. but unless you have unlimited funds, you’ve sorta gotta pick and choose, decide what you can buy.
I did one of these “Beauty Wishlist” posts around the holidays. It’s just something for me to look at and figure out what I really need… well… really want to buy. Of course I’d love every single new collection, product, you name it. Unfortunately, I’m no Kylie Jenner. My bank account doesn’t allow me to buy everything my heart desires all the time.

I don’t know about you… but Colourpop’s Yes, Please! eyeshadow palette screams summer vibes to me! The colors with this palette caught my eye right away. I mostly wanted to get my hands on that stunning red (Spoiled) and yellow (Mischief) color. I mean, the whole palette had some pretty fun colors in it. All the swatches they showed looked insane! I needed it… and I needed the Gimme More highlighter palette. Well, you know I didn’t need more highlighters… but I can’t stop buying them. I’m like a cat, I guess. I see shiny & bright and I lose my mind.
This palette released just in time for those sizzling hot days of summer. I feel like I need to be in Miami sipping on frozen margaritas by the beach with this one. This warm toned palette looks very fiery… Very hot. With that said, it also reminds me of the cool crisp days of the fall. The colors in the palette are very versatile, and, I think, perfect for both seasons.
The palette includes twelve shades and retails for $54. These shadows are all highly pigmented, bold, and stunning colors. The shadows range from mattes and shimmers with warmer orange and red toned hues. I think the packaging for this palette really suits and sums up what you expect the inside shadows to look like. This isn’t your “typical” Naked palette.
I’ve had both of these palette’s for a little while now & have been meaning to let you guys know what my thoughts are on them. *insert face palm emoji here* Better late than never, right?
I’m not one to purchase a lot of drugstore makeup. It’s just a personal preference and I don’t find many brands that I like, or blow me away as I do with high end products. However, I do have a couple of brands I really do enjoy and buy products from: Milani, NYX, and more recently, Makeup Revolution.
Makeup Revolution is still pretty new to me. I think I “discovered” them a couple of months ago when I saw someone tag them in these gorgeous highlighters (Skin Kiss ones) on Instagram. I remember thinking the highlighters looked so good, the swatches I saw were so pigmented, so perfect. I ended up buying them… although, in the back of my mind I kept thinking, “How good could these really be?” I didn’t have high hopes.
I am obsessed with scents. I love things that smell great, candles, fragrances, you name it. I don’t know about you, but whenever I go into a Sephora, or Ulta, or any kind of store that sells perfume or fragrances… I always end up leaving smelling like a million different scents because I just can’t help myself and need to sample EVERYTHING.
I’m always looking for new fragrances that I’ll love. (Lots of times I find them just by getting those sample cards that come inside magazines) Sometimes I end up finding a scent just because I like the look of the bottle or the packaging looks nice. (I know, crazy… luckily I haven’t bought one yet that was a complete fail)
I was really excited to try Jouer Cosmetics highlighters. As you know, highlighters (lipstick & blush) are my obsession at the moment. Before I placed my order, I originally just had my eye on the new ‘Skinny Dip’ lip topper.
The pictures of that lip topper looked stunning! I own two other lip toppers from them and wanted to get Skinny Dip to add to my collection.
I think because I wanted the lip topper, I wanted to add the highlighter as well. I decided to go with an additional highlighter… well, because it was hard not to pick more than just one. 🙂
