| WORTH IT WEDNESDAY | L.A. Colors Contour Sticks | CONTOUR YOUR WHOLE FACE FOR $4?!




Everyone's contouring their face nowadays. Not only is it super popular but it's also a fairly easy way to highlight and define certain features of your face. Some contouring palettes can be expensive, like the one I mentioned in my Beauty Wishlist post, making it hard for beginners and people on a budget to get on this trend. Now, the other day at my local dollar store I found contour sticks for a $1 each, there were four different types, meaning $4 total. Imagine being able to contour your whole face for under $5? I couldn't pass up giving these a try. 
For this week's Worth It Wednesday, I'm going to be reviewing the L.A. Colors Contour Sticks. I hauled these a while ago in my Dollar Store Haul post and I said I was going to let you know what I think of them.So today I'm going to be letting you know everything you need to know about this product before you can decide for yourself if you want to try it or not. At the end I'll let you know if I think it's worth it or not! Enjoy!
Each of the L.A. Colors Contour Sticks costs $1. There are four in total in the collection; Light to Brighten, Medium to Contour, Highlighter, and Bronzer (I couldn't find a link for the bronzer stick, sorry!)


So do these actually work?

Some do, some don't, let me explain what I liked and disliked about each individual stick and then I'll review the line as a whole.

I was totally unimpressed with the Light to Brighten stick. The color was a little yellow, but worked alright on my skin tone, but others with very fair or very dark skin wouldn't be able to use it at all. The color is very specific and that sucks. It was also not very creamy. It was tough to put on, especially under my eyes where the skin is much thinner. It actually hurt me when I was trying to apply it there. You also have to use a good amount to develop a color and it was pretty hard to blend out. This one also faded the fastest, it barely lasted at all.

The Medium to Contour stick was the opposite. It was kind of a universal contour color, but once again wouldn't work on very dark skin tones unfortunately, but that's the only downside. It was really creamy and easy to blend and it turned out really nice. This one is my favorite out of the collection and the only one to actually last a good amount of time.

The Highlighter was alright. The color was gorgeous, which makes me sad that it didn't work out better. The stick isn't as creamy as it should be so you kind of have to draw multiple strokes in the same area to develop pigment, then blend it in a little, I liked using my fingers to do that. It's also a pretty weak highlighter, you only see it in direct light, it looks like you have nothing on unless you're shining a light directly on it about two inches from your face. I wish this worked better, because I love the color so much!

The Bronzer was great. I loved the color and it had just the right amount of shimmer in it, I hate super shimmery bronzers but I also hate super dull ones too. It blended nicely and lasted long too!

All in all the entire collection is alright. It's not great, but it's not the worst contouring products I've tried.



So...is this product worth it?

It depends. I think it's worth it for someone who is just starting out with makeup and doesn't feel comfortable spending a lot of money on something that takes practice, like contouring. I personally wouldn't want to spend $50 on a contouring palette just to waste it on practicing my technique. I'd rather play around with something cheap that I could care less if I wiped it off right after, I wouldn't feel like I'm wasting money that way.
It's also great for someone on a budget. Just because you don't have as much money to spend on makeup, doesn't mean you can't play around with contouring too. I would only recommend the Bronzer and the Medium to Contour sticks though, I was pretty disappointed in the other two. You can even find better drugstore highlighters and a good concealer to create your own contour collection.
If you're someone who's used to contouring with high-end products, this probably wouldn't be worth it to you. There are so many better products out there that are easier to use and way more pigmented. 

Unfortunately I wasn't very impressed with the L.A. Colors Contour Sticks overall. Two of the sticks are great, one is alright, and the other is horrible. I was excited to try them out because, being able to contour your whole face for under $5 sounded like a dream come true to any beauty lover on a budget but I guess it was just too good to be true. 

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed my review on the L.A. Color Contour Sticks. Let me know what you think in the comments! Have you ever tried any of these out? Did you like them or were you unimpressed like me? I would love to hear if these worked on anyone else or not!

| TEACHING TUESDAY | Super Easy Flipped Side Ponytail! | No Heat Summer Hairstyle




Hey guys! For today's Teaching Tuesday I decided to show you a really easy but also super cute no heat summer hairstyle. I feel like I rarely use any heat on my hair during the summer because, well one, it's way too hot for me to even think about it and two, due to humidity I might end up with my hair becoming a giant frizz ball or just falling flat afterwards. 
This hairstyle is perfect for summer because it gets your hair off your face and off your neck. It's also one of my favorites because you can dress it down or up, it's very versatile. This hairstyle works on any hair length, although it's probably easier for medium to long hair.

Steps: Flipped Side Ponytail



1. Starting with dry hair, brush your hair making sure to get out any knots or tangles. Brush all of your hair to either your left or right side, whichever you prefer. I like using my right side!

2. Grab a hair tie. I like to use one that matches my hair color that way it's more "invisible", but you can use any kind. Secure the hair tie around your hair right under your chin, creating a side ponytail, wrap the hair tie around a few times making sure it's secure but not too tight. Do not tighten it.

3. Take the part of your hair above the ponytail and separate the sections of hair evenly, making a hole in your hair. Make sure the hole is large enough so that the ponytail will be able to go through.

4. Hold your ponytail up and out and start feeding the end of your ponytail into the hole until the whole ponytail has gone through. Now you should see that your ponytail has been flipped.

5. If you can still see the hole that your ponytail went through loosen your hair a little and play around with it until the hole disappears. From the front of your hair, you can pull a few strands out like you would any ponytail if you want. 

6. You don't have to do this step but if you want to make your ponytail a little neater you can hide your hair tie. Taking a small section of hair from your ponytail, wrap it around the hair tie and secure it underneath with a bobby pin.

Now you have a flipped side ponytail! 
This is a great hairstyle not only for summer, but also for school or work, it takes less than five minutes to do!

I hope you enjoyed my flipped side ponytail tutorial! Let me know in the comments if you tried this out and if you liked the hairstyle or not!

Thanks for reading!

| MAKEUP MONDAY | My Beauty Wishlist | 15 Makeup Items I Want!



Hey everyone! I'm extremely sorry I haven't posted at all this week. I had a lot going on with my family and I also ended up getting sick! I've actually been sick all weekend, which sucks, who gets sick in the summer? I'm so sorry I wasn't able to post!

For this weeks Makeup Monday post I'm actually doing something a little different. With me being sick and all, I spent a lot of time online shopping, and by online shopping I mean adding things I want into the cart and not buying them. Let me know in the comments if you do that too, because, really, who doesn't? 
Anyway, I realized there are so many beauty items I want, badly. Most of the items I want are higher-end, so I'm definitely going to have to save up a little before I can purchase them!
This is a list of 15 beauty items I want. This isn't everything on my wishlist at the moment but a few of the products I want badly. I also tried to only include one for each category, (ex. face, eyes, lips, etc...), that way this list isn't a thousand pages long!
Hopefully you guys can check out this list and if you have or used any of the items, you can let me know what you think and if it's worth it or not!

Here's 15 beauty items I want! 
[Obviously there's no photos for this post, because I don't currently own any of the products listed, but you can click on the name of the product and a new link will open in a new tab to Sephora.com where you can view the item, sorry for any inconvenience!]

1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit: $40.00 

I have been seeing this everywhere! Every one is buying this and I'm totally jealous. It looks like the most beautiful highlight palette ever. $40.00 seems like a lot but it looks like you get a lot of product for the price, so it might be worth it.

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit: $40.00

Another ABH product, but from what I've heard this cream contour kit is amazing. I've been really into contouring and now that I have some practice I think I can now play around with a more expensive palette. 

3. Kate Somerville Somerville 360 Tanning Towelettes: $48.00 for a box of 8

This product is super expensive. Nearly $50 for 8 towelettes?! Now usually I would laugh at that price, but I had a sample of this and let me tell you, one of the most amazing at home self tanners out there. One wipe is large enough to tan my whole body, the color shows up in a few hours, and lasts a few days. So 8 could probably last a few weeks. I loved it, and I want to get myself a box, like now!

4. BareMinerals Original Foundation: $28.50

My all time favorite foundation ever. I have a little bit of this stuff left and I need to get myself some more. I just wish it wasn't so expensive, it does last a while though so it kind of evens out. 

5. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation: $43.00

I'm always looking for a good foundation and this is the one I see raved about everywhere. I really wonder if its worth the hype though, I mean for $43 it better make me look flawless. 

6. Beauty Blender Two.BB.Clean: $40.00

So this is a set that I saw on Sephora and it comes with two Beauty Blenders and the Beauty Blender cleaner. It's a great deal because one costs $20 and you're getting two, plus the cleaner. I have yet to try the Beauty Blender but everyone swears by it.

7. Smashbox Try It Kit Primer Authority: $28.00

Another little set I found on Sephora, it comes with 4 trial size versions of some of the Smashbox primers. I have the Photo Finish Primer and I love it so I'd love to give some of these other products a try.

8. Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto Perfume: $102 for 3oz

My boyfriend got this for me two years ago for Christmas and I loved it. I wore it everyday, it's one of my favorite scents. It's just so expensive!

9. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner: $19.00

The least expensive item on the list, but I have never spent more than $10 on an eyeliner before. So many people say this is their favorite and I've been dying to try it!

10. Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder: $35.00

I'm not a very big translucent setting powder kind of girl, I usually opt for a pressed powder for more coverage but for $35 this stuff probably works like magic.

11. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: $23.00

Another favorite among many. I always love trying out new mascaras, and everyone who has used this says it's one of the best.

12. Urban Decay Primer Potion: $20.00

I hate it when my eye shadow doesn't stay all day and most drugstore primers just don't work that well. I really want to give this a try and see if it's all the rage.

13. Urban Decay Vice Lipstick: $17.00

I'm not a huge lipstick person but these look amazing. So many colors, literally 100, to choose from and they all look so pretty!

14. Tarte Tartlette in Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette: $45.00

This palette has every color I usually use so I can see myself getting plenty of use out of it. It's also been highly rated.

15. BECCA Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection: $52.00

Who doesn't want this? I've never seen anything more hyped before, and I need to try it. It's currently sold out on Sephora though!


I hope you enjoyed My Beauty Wishlist. That was just 15 of the many items I'm currently lusting over. Let me know if you've ever tried any of them? I want to hear your honest thoughts on these products so I know if I should get them or not!

| TEACHING TUESDAY | How To Take Care Of Your Skin | AFFORDABLE Nighttime Skin Care Routine!







Everyone knows that makeup can make you look good and feel good. It enhances your features and hides some things that you'd rather not show the world, but did you know that the secret to looking flawless is about way more than just the perfect contour and winged eyeliner? 
The one thing almost every beauty lover agrees on is that it doesn't matter how much makeup you put on your face, if you're not taking proper care of your skin. It's so important to make sure your skin is being treated correctly. Just like brushing your teeth, taking care of  your skin should be something that is done twice a day, once in the morning when you wake up before applying any makeup and once at the end of the day to thoroughly remove any dirt or makeup.

For this weeks TEACHING TUESDAY post, I'm going to be showing you an awesome routine for taking care of your face. This routine will mainly include affordable drugstore products, so even if you're on a budget you'll still be able to afford to take care of your skin. This is also my nighttime skin care routine that I basically do every night, so I'll list the product, the benefits of using it, and when and how I use it. 

Now without any further hesitation, let's finally get into my Nighttime Skin Care Routine!
I hope you enjoy!

*Everything I use is $10 or under except for two products. Those two products have cheaper alternatives listed though.*

1. Makeup Remover

So first things first, I remove all of the makeup off my face, which is the most vital step. You can't take care of your skin if you have makeup sitting on it. I actually switch between using makeup removing wipes and a liquid makeup remover. 
My all time favorite makeup removing wipes are the Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Wipes. These wipes do a great job at removing all of my makeup plus they have no dyes or harsh irritants in them, making them very suitable for sensitive skin. They also don't irritate your eyes which is good because I've used some makeup removing wipes that made my eyes burn before. 
If I'm lazy and I forget to remove my makeup before hoping in the shower at the end of the day or if I'm looking to thoroughly remove my makeup well, I use the Purity Made Simple One Step Facial Cleanser . This is actually one of the most expensive product in my routine, ($24), but It's so amazing I just had to include it. I've been using this stuff since I was a freshman in high school and it's one of the products I couldn't live without. I just pour a small amount in my hands, while in the shower, and rub it all over my face and eyes. It removes your makeup so effortlessly. And it's another great product for sensitive skin. If you're going to spend a lot of money on a makeup remover, I highly recommend this one!

2. Cleanser

Next step is cleansing. So I basically use a cleanser after I use the makeup removing wipes to ensure I've gotten all of the dirt, oils, and makeup off of my face. I want to make sure there's nothing clogging my pores! I love using the Simple Facial Foaming Cleanser. [No, this is not a sponsored post, I just love this brand so much!] Many makeup removers double as a cleanser but if the one you're using doesn't, make sure you're cleansing your face as well.

3. Exfoliate

I exfoliate the skin on my face everyday.  Exfoliating is important because it removes all of the dead skin cells off your face and makes your face smoother! Depending on your skin type, you may or may not want to exfoliate everyday. If your skin is dry, you need to be careful about what type of exfoliating scrub you're using and how often you're using it. My skin is relatively oily so it doesn't irritate my skin as much as it would for someone with dry skin, so I do exfoliate everyday.
I actually switch between two different types. I use the Simple Smoothing Face Scrub and the St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub. The Simple exfoliating scrub is a more mild scrub, so it's much better for sensitive or dry skin. I use this one 4-5 days a week and I use the St. Ives, which is much rougher and not recommended for dry skin, 2-3 times a week.

4. Acne Spot Treatment

So this one really depends on whether I'm dealing with breakouts at the moment or not. If I have a pimple or feel one coming I take a small amount of the Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment and rub some on. It works overnight to dry out the pimple and bring the redness and size down.

5. Moisturize

Final Step is to moisturize. A common misconception is that you shouldn't put a moisturizer on if you have oily skin. Everyone should be using a moisturizer at night and in the morning. Moisturizing daily can actually help control the amount of oil on your face. If you're really concerned about your skin being too oily, look for a moisturizer with oil control, that's oil-free, or one that's specifically for oily skin. 
I actually like to use the CVS Oil-Free Moisturizer, it works great. I also use the Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral Enriched Renewal Cream. Not only was that a mouthful it's also pretty expensive ($43!), but once again I love this and if you're looking to spend a lot on a moisturizer I recommend this one. It's great for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

That's my nighttime skin care routine. I hope you enjoyed. I also hope I helped you find some awesome affordable skin care products!
Just remember, what works for me might not work for you. Don't use a product just because I say it was a good match for my sensitive skin, everyone is different. Test a small amount on your skin first or use the product on a night when you know you won't have to go anywhere the next day in case of breakouts. Also, be sure to check with your dermatologist before using any new products on your skin if you know you have bad reactions to certain things. Be sure to check all products for ingredients as well.

| REVIEW! |Revlon ColorStay Foundation & Pressed Powder

Hey everyone! I'm so happy to be back from my week off from writing. Once again, I'm sorry I didn't post at all last week. I was super busy with my job and I just needed to take a short break. Thanks for understanding!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------





Today I'm going to be reviewing the Revlon Colorstay Foundation and Pressed Powder. This isn't a new product at the drugstore but I had never used it before and I told you in my CVS Drugstore Makeup Haul post that I would give you guys a review on what I think of it after I give it a try. I've been using it on and off for the past two weeks and I can finally give an honest review on it. 

Let's get into this review!

My skin type ranges from combination to oily depending on the time of year and the weather and such. It's not all over oily just mainly my T-zone but it's been really hard for me lately to find a foundation that stays for an entire work day, (8 hours or more). I usually have to reapply some powder to make myself look less oily after about 6 hours. While in CVS I had a coupon for Revlon Cosmetics and they were doing a buy one get one 50% off sale on all Revlon so I decided to try out their foundation. I wouldn't usually buy a foundation that costs almost $15 for everyday wear just because for me, that's pretty expensive. I usually spend $8 on foundation and about $6-7 on a pressed powder. The Revlon Colorstay pressed powder is usually almost $12, (I got it for $6 with my coupons and the sale), which is also kind of expensive. I had pretty high expectations for these two products already just because of the price.

The foundation has a pump which is awesome because you can have more control over how much product comes out. I hate when I accidentally pour out too much because that's just a waste, so this was definitely a plus. This foundation is also build able to full coverage, it goes on very smoothly, and it blends out nicely. The only downside is it definitely oxidizes on the skin, after a little while it turns to a more orange color. It boasts that it will last 24 hours but that sounds like an exaggeration to me. It does however, last very long. I can wear it all day at work and not have to retouch it once.
This foundation comes in 18 shades and comes in 2 different skin types; normal/dry and combination/oily. (I use combination/oily.)

The pressed powder is actually one of my favorite pressed powders now. It matches the foundation shade perfectly and it goes on very smoothly. It also doesn't look cakey, it just gives a very natural finish. It actually tones down the orange from the foundation a little bit. 
This pressed powder also lasts a full work day for me.
It comes in 6 shades including a translucent finishing powder.




All in all I actually really like the foundation and the pressed powder. I'm happy they worked on my skin because finding a great foundation and powder that doesn't wear off after a few hours is hard for me. I won't be purchasing them as my regular drugstore foundation products just because they're a little more expensive than some other great drugstore foundations but if they were on sale or something like that I will definitely be buying them again!

Just remember, what works for me might not work for you. Everyone is different and that's whats so great about makeup, it caters it everyone's needs and preferences. 

Thanks for reading this review on the Revlon Colorstay Foundation and Pressed Powder. Below you will find my official review system, and the final score for these products. I will also leave links to these products so you can try them out for yourself if you want. Don't forget to leave me a comment below and let me know what you think of these products.

| 50 TMI QUESTIONS! | Get To Know Me!

I said I'd be back Friday night and here I am! It was actually really hard for me not to write any posts for the past week, I was itching to get at least one post done but in all honesty I'm glad I took the week off. I was so busy with work and this week would have been a lot harder if I had been writing every day as well. 
One good thing did come out of not posting for a week and that is that I have a huge list of new post ideas! I can't wait to start posting regularly again and I hope you're excited too!

Tonight's post isn't something I usually post but I figured a good way to come back is to do a 50 TMI Questions Tag! Enjoy!

Philosophically speaking: being able to view the world in an innocent way, as you grow older you start to see the world as it is instead of how it should be and it's a little scary.

12. Favorite song?
How can anyone have one single favorite song!? Let's just say favorite song on the radio right now, which would probably have to be surprisingly Work From Home by Fifth Harmony. I'm not really into them but whenever this song does come on I listen to it haha.

This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”

Everyone who reads this post, if ya want!

I thought this would be a fun and interesting post that took like no effort to do. You also got the chance to learn a little more about me. I found these questions here. They have so many prompts and questions, it's a great site. I did change a few questions so they would be more tailored to me. (Instead of YouTube, I wrote blog, etc...)
I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little more!
Let me know if you want me to do more of these posts!

| NEW ANNOUNCEMENT! | MUST READ!

Hey everyone! So this week is crazy busy for me with my job and such. I'm going to be working really late for the rest of the week. I was also at work late Monday and today. Unfortunately, this blog doesn't quite pay the bills so I do have to focus on my job at the moment. 
I won't be posting at all this week. I'm really not happy at all about it but I'm very stressed right now and I feel like I won't be posting high quality content for my readers if I'm not 100% focused on this. I don't believe in giving you guys low quality content if I know I can do better, so I won't post just to keep posting, ya feel me?
BUT I will be back this weekend, maybe even late Friday night if possible. Then, I will be back in full swing next week.

I made a few changes to the posting schedule as well. Here is the revised version:

Make Up Mondays
Teaching Tuesday
Worth It Wednesday
Throwback Thursday

I eliminated free choice Fridays. I felt the theme was a little pointless and by Friday I'm pretty much pooped from work and it was always hard to post something in time. However, I will always post at least once during the weekend and occasionally on Friday. There will be no theme to these weekend posts, they can pretty much be about anything and everything.

I really wish I could write on here full time. I love it so much and I've been having so much fun! I just wanted to say thank you to every single person that has come to this page! It makes me so happy to see that people read what I post. Please continue to read and don't forget to comment, like, and share!

I've also been thinking about doing a giveaway. It would be for followers only. So you would have to be following me on Twitter or on Bloglovin' I haven't decided when to have the giveaway but it should be within the next few weeks hopefully.

Follow me on Bloglovin' by clicking on the Bloglovin' button on my home page right above the About Me or just click here!

Also, follow me on Twitter here! I actually follow back everyone who follows me, so let's be friends!

Following me on Twitter and Bloglovin are the best ways to make sure you never miss out on any new posts.

Thank you again everyone! So much love to all of you!
