Is it worth it? Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

Full thoughts in video form here! swatches and summary of my thoughts below.

It has more of a muddy yellow undertone than orange!
Yummy yummy yummy! That right there sums up my love of this product right there! Who doesn't love smelling chocolate while applying their make-up!

Here are some detailed pictures and swatches of this product in the shade milk chocolate.
I built up the colour gradually form left to right

Retailed at sephora for 36$ alternatives range from $7-$20 so if you can find an alternative do it.

But! Alot of the drugstore bronzers are too orange for me personally, so because of that this product is worth it! If you have a bronzer you love already then stick with that. No need to spend more money just to smell like chocolate. If your feeling orange like me then most definitely try this product! It is the perfect shade for either a subtle contour or an all over sun kissed look!

Lots of love

Coral Shimmer

I am showing some love to the sunny shade of coral today! This beautiful colour has a shade for everyone and every shade is just as gorgeous as the last. I chose a golden coral infusion shadow for my eyes, urban decay "x". After an all over dose of that gorgeous colour, I used some "naked" shadow for a little bit of definition in my crease and on my lower lash line. With "x" being so shimmery I decided to make it pull double duty as my highlight as well.

Cheeks and lips I kept with the golden coral but went for colours that were more coral then golden. Nars "orgasm" for my cheeks, which has become my new multipurpose blush! Lips I used Maybeline "coral luster" lipstick and smashbox "boundless" longwear lipgloss.

This was a quick easy everyday look that I have been wearing alot this summer so far. Oh! I am also trying out maybeline's new B.B. cream with this look. A comparison review is on its way!

Lots of love

Is It Worth It? Nars Blush Orgasm

At $32 dollars I was very skeptical of the hype of this product!

But it's quality won me over. (that and the fact that the nyx and milani dupes were nowhere to be found for me! :O)

Here are some basic swatches of the product.

Drugstore Make-Up

Today's make-up look was all about my drugstore collection! I wanted something simple and sleek, that would travel well. By travel well I mean have as few items as possible. I have an upcoming road trip and need to start deciding what make-up needs to come with me!! Harder to do then I originally thought.

I only used one trio to get the desired look. I figured the fewer eyeshadow palettes I use the better. I just stuck with the suggested application for this trio. You know what I mean if it has crease pressed into the powder I did what it told me too. Applying some K.I.S.S. to this look. Here are the main items of this look ( I didn't include everything in this list because the other items I used are my few staple higher end products)

  • Wet n wild walkin on eggshells
  • Maybelline mega plush volume express mascara
  • Garnier skin renew bb cream light/medium
  • Covergirl blastlipstick duo in whisper
  • Maybelline bouncy blush in peach satin
  • *not in picture* Maybelline Drama eyeliner in brown

Hope you enjoyed this post! Have a great day.

Lots of love
