An Almost Full Face of Honest Beauty

My classes got cancelled today so I decided to do a full face of Honest Beauty! Well, an almost full face.

Everything Primer Matte $22.99

I started with the Honest Beauty Everything Primer in Matte. I use this primer all the time. It’s a lotiony texture and leaves my skin feeling hydrated, but not looking greasy.

The Everything Cream Foundation in Snow $21.99

This is a foundation I have raved about before and still love it. It can be used with out a concealer because it builds up so easily without looking cakey.

Snow is the perfect match for my light skin and I will continue to use and love it.

Get it Together Eyeshadow Palette $22.99

I have used this palette a few times and it isn’t the best I’ve ever used, but it also isn’t the worst.

None of the shades are particularly creamy and the pigmentation is okay. They do look very pretty on the eyes. I used the first three shades and the cream shade to do more of a romantic look today

Dusk Reflection Illuminizing Glow Powder $19.99

Dusk Reflection is the darker shade and I use it as bronzer. I love this stuff. I use it all the time. It sinks into the skin so well and doesn’t look like too much.

Midnight Reflection Illuminizing Glow Powder $19.99

This is the lighter shade. It’s a great highlight! Not over the top, not to shimmery. It just looks like the light is hitting your face perfectly.

Cremé Cheek Blush in Rose Pink $12.99

I use this blush all the time. It sinks nicely into the skin and I love that it makes me look slightly sunburnt even though I never go outside.

It is a beautiful rosey color and works well on my skin tone.

Lip Crayon in Sheer Rose $12.99

I tend to reach for this lip crayon on no makeup days. It’s comfortable and gives your lips and really nice kiss of color!

I really love how this look turned out! I highly recommend checking out everything! Maybe not the eyeshadow palette, but it does create pretty looks.

What’s your favorite Honest Beauty product?

ELF Bite Sized Shadow in Pumpkin Pie

I have had a few of these quads just sitting around. I haven’t really been playing with makeup, but this morning I was watching Tati videos and got inspired. So I thought, “ let’s do an inexpensive fall look.”

This quad retails for only $3!!! Here ! Let’s get into swatches and the super quick and easy look.

My first comment is I wish the matte shades had one that was a bit more orange toned, but the mattes are still super pretty.

The mattes don’t swatch the best, but they do work very well. The metallics on the other hand swatch like a dream and work just as well.

I used a fluffy blending brush and used the lightest matte and went all through the crease. I used a more tapered blending brush and used the darker matte on the outer corner. On the outer portion of my lid I used the darker metallic and then the lighter one on the rest of my lid.

I am in love with the look that came out of this quad! Simple easy, so cheap and perfect for fall. Now I want every single one of the bite sized quads and no one will stop me from getting them. I feel an ELF hall coming on!!

Which bite sized quad is your favorite?

Zenpop Stationary Unboxing | September 2021

This months theme, chill study vibes

Zenpop Stationary box is $33 a month plus a small shipping fee. It’s packed full of fun Japanese stationary and sometimes a neat snack!

Food Washi (masking) Tape

I decorate everything with wash it tape. My planner, notebooks, and folders look like an explosion of washi tape went off. I am sure this food themed roll will come to good use.

Osampo Sticker Sheet

Dogs and food! I’m sure I’ll have these babies stuck every where by the end of the week.

Tenori Tape Glue Stamp

This came at the perfect time! I was just about to order one so I can use all my cute memo sheets more easily in my notebooks and planner. And I like the color green.

Mini Food Notebook

This is probably the only item I won’t use. But it is going in the donation bin of stuff to take to my local elementary school for their before and after school program.

Kokuyo Plastic Erasers

Comes in a set of two. I can never have enough erasers!

Midori Multiuser Ruler

Right into my backpack this goes. It’s cute and functional. I make a lot of study guides on printer paper and this will definitely come in handy.

Pentel PG Metal 0.5 Mechanical Pencil

I have one of these already and love it, so I know I’ll use this until it no longer functions.

Kokuyo Drawing Pen 0.5mm Sepia

I have some of these in other shades and I love them! I am excited to add this one in Sepia to my collection.

I also got a sticker and post card that was designed for the box by Tao.

I love this box and think this months was a hit!

Scribe Delivery | August 2021

Scribe delivery is around $25 a month and is full of high quality stationary. I am particularly happy with this months assortment.

Four super cute post cards! I want a pen pal so bad. Once I find one I will for sure be sending them these.

Zebra Sarasa Dry Pens in Black and Red

I already have some of these pens and I love them for note taking. I’m glad to finally have one in red and to have backups to my black one. The dry quickly and write very smooth. Highly recommend!

Rhoida Notebook

The paper quality feels incredible and I love how organized it is. I also really like that the cover is a basic black. I am definitely going to be using this for my Anatomy and Physiology 2 lab this coming semester.

Over all fantastic package! I recommend this box to any students or anyone as obsessed with stationary as I am.

BoxyCharm Premium| September 2020

BoxyCharm Premium is $35 a month with 5-6 full sized beauty products.

Firstly, I want to apologize for the lack of posts. I have been crazy busy with work and classes. I have had no down time. So I decided to start scheduling in posting sessions. Hopefully this works out.

Let’s hop into the box!

Eloise Beauty The Queen Eyeshadow Palette $46

This palette is beautiful. I love the color story and I can’t wait to see what looks I can create with it. This is a cruelty free brand!

Marc Jacobs Enamored High Shine Gloss “ch-ch changes” $29

This is not a gloss I’m going to use, so I’m going to pass it on to someone else. I am just not one for glitter on my lips.

Frank Body Coconut Coffee Scrub $18.95

I am excited about this. I have wanted to try one of their body scrubs, and not I finally get to. I am really glad that it is sensitive skin friendly. Hopefully that claim holds up! The brand is cruelty free, vegan friendly and 99% natural.

Kitsch Ice Roller $18

I wish this would have come a month or two sooner, because it is already starting to get chilly here and I’m not going to want to roll something freezing all over my face. But I will give it a try, maybe it will make a big difference.

Ole Henricksen Phat Glow Facial $50

This was the item I picked for my box this month. I have heard great things about it and really wanted to try it myself. Let’s see if it holds up to the hype!

Saturday Skin Pore Clarifying Toner $30

I need this so bad right now! Wearing a mask all the time has caused some bad break outs on my face, and my current skincare routine just isn’t cutting it. I really hope this helps.

That is it for my months box. I am really happy with everything besides the lip glass. My box came to a total of $192.95. An awesome value!
