The Makeup I left un-packed while in the moving process!

As you know, I have recently moved! Because of this my makeup collection was packed away a few days before moving, so I put some products me to use in my big travel makeup bag. Most of these are just products I am using up or ones that I am making myself get use out of. A few of them are ones I really love. I also want to note that I will not be including brushes. I have a post about the brush I always have to have, here.



  • Starting with the scented items. I am bringing my Pink body spray in “Fresh and Clean” and my Beauti Control “Island Sunset” lotion. I love the smell of the spray, but I am not the biggest fan of this lotion. My cousin sells this brand though, sort of like Avon, and it was a gift from her a long time ago so I don’t want to just toss it out.
  • I am also bringing my routine deodorant to finish up the sample, which some how still has a lot left.
  • I am bringing my almost done ELF Lip Scrub, Smith’s Rose Bud Salve (which has some big pan showing), and my Peek Natural Lip Plumper!
  • I am bringing my ELF Daily Moisturizer, to get a better opinion of it, and bringing the Maybelline Baby Skin primer to finish it off.
  • I also included the Too Faced Shadow Insurance in this category, but it could have also gone under the eye category. This is a sample I some how came to have and just want to use it up so I can use my actual full-size.
  • As my makeup remover I m keeping out the Estee Lauder Take It Away makeup remover. This came as a gift with purchase a long time ago, and I just need to finish it.



  • I am trying to use up my Rimmel Stay Matte and my Maybelline Fit Me powders. I know alot of the products mentioned are not cruelty free. I did’t want to just throw stuff away and waste my money. So if I couldn’t pass it on and it was a product I enjoyed, I am going to use it up.
  • I also have a L’oreal True Match concealer in a darker shade to cream contour with. Along with my Maybelline Dream Lumi and Fit Me in “15” to Highlight.
  • I am finishing up my Maybelline Age Rewind under the eyes. And the Fit Me Concealer in “10”.
  • I found that I had the Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation in my collection. It doesn’t have much left in it, so I figured I would try it out again and if I still like it try to find a cruelty free dupe.
  • I am keeping out my Milani baked blus in “Luminoso”, it is by far my favorite blush.
  • I am also keeping out my ELF contour kit and using it for, contour,bronzer, highlight,and under eye setting powder.



  • I am keeping out my L’oreal brow definer and plumper. They are both almost done!
  • My essence brow pencil is also coming, it is lighter than the brow definer and sometimes I just want my face caterpillars a little more natural.
  • I am using my NYX beyond coverage concealer and ELF concealer brush to carve out my brows.



  • Instead of keeping out my naked palette as I usually would I decided to keep out my Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette! I love this little fella, but really do not use it enough.
  • I have decided to keep out my NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk, it really makes a great base.
  • My Milani Brow and Eye highlighter is also staying out. It is a great multi-purpose product.
  • I am keeping out my favorite crease shade, MAC Cork. I really need to find a cruelty free dupe for this..
  • The Merle Norman shadow in Bare Necessities is also staying out, it is a nice blending shade that I want to dupe as well, but don’t use enough.
  • My liners are the Rimmel one in Nude, Maybelline Lasting Drama in Brown, Clinique’s Intense Ebony, and Maybelline Master Precise liner in black. I just need to use these up.
  • I am also trying to use up the Covergirl Clump Crusher and the L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascaras.



  • For some reason I was having a really hard time passing along my Rimmel Moisture Lock Lipsticks. I had only ever used one, but I think I was connected to the packaging. I decided to bring one “nude and the city” and try to see if I even like the product.
  • I am also bringing the Rimmel Lip liner in Spice, it needs to be used up.
  • I am bringing one of my favorite lip products right now, the Burt’s Bee’s Lip Stick in Russet River. It is beautiful!
  • I also forgot to mention that I am going to be using the Wet n Wild Setting Spray. It isn’t all that bad and I do not give it enough use.

Have you tried these products? Can you dupe the non cruelth free ones? What would you keep out for moving?

Spring Beauty Tag


1. Do you change up your makeup for the spring? If so, how?

I do in fact change up my makeup! I prefer for my foundation to be more light weight, for my lips to be in lighter colors, and my skin really bronze. My summer and spring makeup is essentially the same.

2. What is your favorite spring fragrance?


I LOVE how this stuff smells. Not only does it smell fantastic, the notes are supposed to be fresh apple and lily, but it also has aloe in it to moisturize your skin.

3. What will be your most worn accessory this spring?


I do not own much jewelry. My skin is extremely sensitive to nickel and other metals, so it is usually just a hassle to find pieces that won’t give me a reaction. I do, however, wear the same necklace everyday. It has a cross bow and a charm that say “Fight the dead fear the living.” I literally never take it off.

4. What will be your most worn clothing item?

I am not sure yet. I have yet to go shopping for new clothes, and nothing I have is really what I want to wear for spring.

5.What are your top 3 spring nail polishes?


Orly “Surfer Girl”

Essie ” Bikini so Teeny”

Wet n Wild ” Pardon my French”

6.Do you prefer pumps or sandals for the spring?

Sandals. I have a really messed up ankle of years of cheer leading and dace, as well as all the accidents that accompany them.

7. What is your favorite spring jacket?

Where I live it is either winter OR summer. It seems like spring and fall only stick around for a week. So I normally do not wear a jacket, I do however wear cardigans. As stated before I have not gone spring shopping yet.

8. What is your favorite flower?


I love Roses. They remind me of The Phantom of the Opera. Which is one of my favorite plays.

If you are reading this I tag you! ❤

Tartlet Tease: A springy look!


( the shades left to right: top; whisper, crush, heartbreaker
Bottom; wink, first kiss, bff)
I really haven’t had much experience with Tarte eye shadows. I do love many of their other products. So, I decided to try just a few of the shadows instead of buying a huge palette. I actually love this little palette. The shadows are pigmented, long wearing, and very easy to work with. I decided to seize this opportunity to play with a product new to my collection, and come up with a some what spring themed look. Continue reading “Tartlet Tease: A springy look!”

What’s in my everyday, stays in my purse, makeup bag?

I have one makeup bag that I always keep in my purse, with all the products that I think are touch up essential. ALSO, in the comments send me a likn to your everyday makeup bag!!<3

The Bag:


I just carry my essentials in an old Too Faced bag, I got in with a kit in the summer of 2014. It is nicely made, roomy, and really cute. It reminds me of something nautical- which I love. Continue reading “What’s in my everyday, stays in my purse, makeup bag?”
