MAC Haul

Matchmaster Foundation 1.0 | Mineralize Skinfinish - Lightscapade | Springhseen Blush

Hey everyone! Here I've got a little mini MAC haul, but not really a haul... I received these things from my fabulous friend Lisa, whose Mom (funniest woman ever) works for MAC so she gets the huge discount and I try and do all my shopping through her-unless its LE Collections. So I gave her a wishlist at my birthday of things I love / want from MAC and she SAVED it! And got me some more for Christmas- so shoutout to Lisa #youdarealmvp

MAC Matchmaster Foundation 1.0 - I adore this MAC foundation, I tried it at a friends house and 1.0, the lightest shade, matches my ghostly self in the winter. It looks a lot darker against the white paper, but sitting next to all my other foundations it looks like a cream toned white-like when you're shopping for paint swatches, this would be like Ecru or some kind of creamy white. This foundation blends so nicely into the skin, has SUCH good coverage and I know usually the claims foundations make of "special technology etc etc" are almost never true, but this one actually does somehow match and blend into your real skin and you cannot tell where your foundation ends and uncovered skin starts.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish - Lightscapade - I have the MSF in Soft and Gentle which is really fantastic in the summer because it's a peachier pink, but all my pale friends will know that even highlighters can be too dark sometimes and this is a lighter highlighter that has violet and green veining running through it and it doesn't come off ashy or too frosty on the skin and would really work on everyone, it isn't as intense as Soft & Gentle with the intense shimmer and actual glitter, there isn't any glitter in this one. There's a soft shimmer and sheen to it and it applies with almost no color and is just completely perfect and I'm in love with it.

MAC Springhseen Blush - This I had to get basically because it has such a cult following and I wanted to see what all the hype was about. I do adore peachy pink blushes so this one fits perfectly into my little makeup collection. I do love this blush more for spring and summer (hence the name I'm assuming) and I can tell this is going to get a LOT of use once spring hits.

Thanks so much for reading guys and I hope you enjoyed this mini haul- most people will have like six or seven things, and this was three but hey MAC is expensive, Lisa totally hooked me up, and you guys got mini reviews at the same time! If there are any types of posts you really like or would like me to do more of or at all please let me know below, and do comment! I LOVE talking to you guys in the comments, I have replied to every single comment ever on my blog (I'm not joking).

Pretty Smart - The Balm | Review

 Snap! Pretty Smart Lipgloss - The Balm $15.00 *

Hey everyone!!! Normally I am the furthest thing from a lipgloss fan, it's sticky, gloopy, it gathers into this weird line on my lips because I talk too much, and there are a select very few brands (i.e. NARS) that make formulas I can tolerate and wear because they look so beautiful. The Balm has now become one of those brands.

So Rad | Dentz Denim

Hey everyone! Today's fashion post is a little different than the normal. I did a post with Dentz Denim in the past you can find here in the summer about their fab high waisted shorts that they custom make specifically to you- you send them your measurements, choose a style, and they make them to specifically fit you. Stay tuned to the end (or scroll to the end) for a MEGA discount code.

They ALSO make custom sweaters/sweatshirts, tee shirts, tank tops, and "ugly" holiday sweaters that are hilarious and cute - and they make them for literally every holiday, they're making em for St. Patricks day coming up and they're hilarious! So they sent me two of their slouchy off the shoulder sweaters which I am head over heels in love with and want at least five more from their site and instead of doing a typical "fashion blogger" post I figured I'd show you what I actually look like blogging and browsing the internet or studying...because I have basically been living in these (separate post coming on the other sweatshirt)

Kebelo Velvet Curls | Review

Hey guys! For all you curly girls out there this post is for you (but if you have any other hair types stay tuned or just flip to the end of the post). I recently had the opportunity to try out the Kebelo Velvet Curls line which included a shampoo and conditioner, clarifying shampoo, and curl defining cream. One of my best friends Kayla (who I know doesn't read my blog- side eye) and she has always stressed the importance of using a good shampoo and conditioner. Myself, being cheap and lazy just thought's all in the aftercare so I'll just spend my money on the aftercare.

Well my friends Kayla was right. The shampoo and conditioner DO count and it is proven by this fantastic line.

MAC See Sheer | Dupe Alert

See Sheer - MAC  $16.00

Hey everyone! Today I have one of everyone's seemingly favorite posts- a dupe post!! Now when I dupe a lipstick, I put it through every single gets possible- exact color match, exact undertones, does or if it pulls the same color on my skin, if it has a sheen to it how smoothly it applies, the wear get the point. I basically put them through hell and back.

Well happily today I have found a dupe for one of my favorite transitioning lipsticks (fall/spring) and good all-rounder that basically goes with everything and looks good on so many skin tones, MAC See Sheer. If you watch Essie Button or read her blog she has DEFINITELY mentioned this lipstick quite a few times as being one of her favorites as well.

Casual Comfort & Unicorn Sweaters

Hey everyone! Today I've got another fashion post centered around my daily attire. You can't even imagine the countless flannels I have in my closet, probably half of my closet... and I was sent this super cute unicorn sweatshirt by Fecbek which is a super cool website that I was contacted by, and it was even harder deciding what item to choose from their site!

But, being me, I decided to go with something I'd wear often- a pastel unicorn sweatshirt (my fashion choices are boundless), and I just wanted to show you how I style things like this. I've said it before and I'll say it again, my style is casual comfy "chic" I use the term chic loosely, as in I don't look like a bum and look semi put together but I don't have to put real pants on...

#LFBeautyBox January | Review

Hey guys! Sorry this post is super late, as this is the JANUARY Look Fantastic beauty box (the flu is such a downer! But better late than never?) I'd rather post this late because it still shows the quality of these boxes and how they give you such amazing products!

The products are always HUGE, they're that size that isn't in the travel sized section of the store, but not quite full sized. If you get a shampoo or a body wash you can use it more than one time- which is always nice because then you can really get a good idea of if you want to actually buy the product (and you can take them on vacation and not have to take ten travel sized things to last you since this is the bigger size, positives all around!).

Vintage, Edgy, & Chic

Hey everyone! I think everyone here can say that they're a fan of a good versatile online shopping site that won't break the bank, and with the seasons changing soon I thought now would be a PERFECT time to compile a little collage of some fabulous outfits I would wear.

My style, if you didn't know is comfy, casual, chic. Basically all winter I've been rocking thick leggings, tall boots, big thick knit sweaters or flannel shirts (my favorites), scarves, and beanies-all comfy clothes but when you put them all together they make a cute coherent outfit. So for some inspiration if you're like me and would rather dress like a bum than be the biggest fashionista on the block, I'm here to help! 

Here are some super simple ways to be cute and comfy no matter what the occasion, from super casual, to more dressy events I've got you covered. I wish I owned everything in my collage, especially that PU leather jacket-it's the most beautiful leather jacket I've ever seen-I need a moment.

Benefit Gimme Brow | Dupe

Hey everyone! I've got another dupe post coming at you today and this one is for the most beloved Benefit Gimme Brow! Basically, this is the lazy girl's dream product, it's an all in one brow tint, brow gel, and has tiny brow fibers that are supposed to make your brows look fuller all in one swoop.

However the tube is TINY at $22, I expected even a SLIGHTLY bigger tube. Don't get my wrong, I think the tiny brush is cute and good for getting into the little spaces on your brows, but it is such an expensive product. Before, it was the only type of product on the market that did all those jobs in one product- so it seemed justifiable to pay for it because you were buying three products in one, which you probably would have paid more than $22 if you bought a pencil/powder, brow gel, and brow tint/fibers to make your brows look fuller. That is this was the only product on the market until recently.
