Sonia Kashuk Eye Makeup Remover

Sonia Kashuk Eye Makeup Remover


Hands down my favorite eye make up remover! I cant say enough good things about this product. Ive tried other make up removers from brands like L'oreal and those always stung around my eye area. The Sonia Kashuk eye make up remover is silky smooth, very gentle, and does not burn or sting around your eyes. It separates so shake it before use. It retails for about $10 in Target. It seems like a lot of money but in my opinion it's worth it. Pus, the bottle lasts a long time.

Comments, Questions, and Requests are welcome :]

Maybelline : Color Tattoo Fierce & Tangy, Too Cool, Bad to the Bronze, and Tough as Taupe

Maybelline Color Tattoo 
Fierce & Tangy, Too Cool, Bad to the Bronze, and Tough as Taupe 

Left color: Fierce and Tangy
 Bottom color: Too Cool
 Right color: Bad to the Bronze 
Top color: Tough as Taupe

Fierce and Tangy: Bright orange color. Semi matte
Too Cool: White shimmer color. A little on the sheer side.
Bad to the Bronze: Beautiful bronze with shimmer. 
Tough as Taupe: A Taupe. Gray with purple undertones. Matte shade.  

Over All Thoughts : 

I love using these as a base for my eye shadow. They have never creased on me even after a long day. They stay put and are very long lasting. Retails around 6.99 USD depending on where you shop. Most stores have buy 1 get 1 50% off. They are worth it in my opinion. I plan on purchasing more in the future.

My mother has said that they don't glide on very well and tug at your lid. The matte shades are on the dry side but I just rub them around with my finger before applying - to warm it up. You can also stick them in the microwave for a few seconds. Though I haven't had much of an issue with application

 My favorite of the bunch is Bad to the Bronze. It feels the most creamy and easily glides onto my lid. The white shade (Too Cool) is great for highlighting. I use it to brighten up the center of my eyelid esp with darker looks. Tough as Taupe is a great all over the lid shade - Very beautiful for a subtle smoky eye. And fierce and Tangy I mainly use as a base. 

How do they compare to MAC Paint-Pots?

They are very similar. Both can act as a base. They both do what they are suppose to do. The shimmery Paint-Pots I own are not as shimmery as the Maybelline Color Tattoos. Each company has its own unique colors. I love both products but the Color Tattoos are much less expensive. If your looking to save money that's the way to go!

JewelMint : Take a Bow Ring

JewelMint's Take a Bow Ring

I received this ring free with a JewelMint purchase. I think this ring is adorable - I absolutely love bow rings. The quality though is not the greatest (hence why it was free). The rhinestones appear to be glued on the surface. The ring is white and looks like it has been dipped in a thick heavy paint. Its also a little wonky and not completely even on the backside. Its not worth the 29.99 but if you can get it for free I think its a fun piece for the right outfit. It really sparkles in the light :]

Jewelmint : Audrey Earrings

JewelMint's Audrey Earrings

The Holidays are here! I have my fingers crossed that JewelMint brings back the Audrey earrings! I need a back up. The quality is superb and they have a very nice weight. They are not so heavy that they become uncomfortable which is great. When the light catches them, they are absolutely stunning. I love studs. This is my favorite JewelMint piece I own and I always grab for these! Retails for 29.99 USD.

Favorite Gloss! NYX Round Lip Gloss!

NYXRound Lip Gloss

Hopefully this gives you a closer look at some of the selection available. These were purchased from beautyjoint for 2.25 USD.

Golden Prune : A purplish red with golden shimmer
Amethyst : Deep red pink with golden shimmer
Peach : Bright peach coral color with slight silver shimmer

Mauve : Dusty pink with no shimmer
Natural : Brownish pink with no shimmer
Whipped : Pinky nude with a hint of shimmer

Review and Thoughts

I prefer these to the NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss which has a very sharp cherry smell that reminds me of cough syrup. These round glosses however have virtually no smell. They are very creamy and glide on smooth. Not sticky at all. Color selection is great. I cant seem to find these in stores but easy to find online. I love Peach for the summertime! Natural and Whipped look awesome over nude lipsticks. These are pretty pigmented and can be wore by themselves. Highly recommended and looking forward to buying more in the future! Any questions? Feel free to ask!

Quenched : No color. Clear lip balm
Pink Punch : bright bubble gum pink. Most pigmented

Review and Thoughts:

When I used quenched (the clear regular lip balm) for my everyday chap stick I was a little disappointed.
It feels amazing on my lips when applied but after it wore away my lips felt dry and I would have to apply more. But everyone's lips are different so Id say give it a go!

Buuutttt I love my tinted Baby Lips! These too feel so soft and smooth on the lips.
But I'm not using them 24/7, just when I want a nice light wash of color. No mirror needed and easy application! I really enjoy grape vine. It looks scary in the tube but its a beautiful sheer purple wash on the lips. Also love pink punch! This is a great bright pink tinted balm for the summer. Defiantly would repurchase these two!

Each one has its own unique scent. Pink punch smells like fruit punch, quenched smells exactly like fruity pebbles, peach kiss has a fruity peachy smell, and grape vine smells like a grape lollipop :] They all smell so wonderful!

I love the packaging. I think its so much fun especially with spring approaching. Also love that these lip balms have an SPF of 20. Retails around 2.97 USD. I purchased mine at Walmart and Kmart.

Review and Thoughts

bought one then ended up buying 8 more! They don't leave my lips dry. I love the color selection. They have everyday colors to bright fun colors. They don't stay on too long but I don't mind reapplying because they feel so good on my lips :] I also love putting these over my lipsticks for more moisture. It works and looks great! And the packaging is lovely with the top matching the lip color.

I absolutely love creme brulee because its a perfect nude for everyday and easy to apply without a mirror. Peach Parfait, Sugar Plum, and Strawberry Shortcake could also be great everyday colors. Peach Parfait is another favorite. I love using Tutti Frutti and Sweet Tart to warm up and brighten lipstick colors. Lollipop is a bright fun color that I think would be great for a night out!

They are pretty pigmented some more so than others. I find Red Velvet, Lollipop, and Sweet Tart to be the most pigmented. They leave a nice stain on the lips after they have worn off which is a plus for me!

Overall I love these!

Retails around 6.49 USD. I found all mine at local drug stores, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Walmart, Taget, etc.
