Hey Beauties!! I was nominated by Glamorous_etoiles to answer these questions. Thank you so much for keeping me in mind.❤️ So basically how it works: You get nominated by a blogger. Mention you were nominated, and by who. Answer the 10 questions. Nominate 10 Bloggers to do this What is the one makeup product you can’t live without? Only one?! That’s way to hard to choose. Hmmmm… It would probably have to be the Urban Decay 24/7 waterproof eyeliners. Definitely doesn’t budge ❤️ What is your favorite makeup brand? My favorite makeup brand would have to be IT cosmetics. Great ingredients, great products and treats while covering imperfections which is always a plus. Lipstick or lip gloss? Definitely Lipstick. I love glosses over lipsticks if I want a little shine. How long have you been blogging? I’ve been blogging for only a month now and I absolutely love it. I’ve been reviewing on my Instagram for quite some time, but never officially “blogging”. What’s your favorite drugstore makeup item? Definitely ELF’s liquid eyeliner in black. I’ve been using this since high school and it’s great!! I absolutely love the brush and formula. To top it off, it’s only $1.00!!! Favorite method to apply foundation? I love using a stippling brush to pat on the formula evenly and I blend with a flat top foundation brush. I find this method to give a nice even finish without looking cakey! What is […]
Good evening Beauties!! Today I’m back with a post that’s a little different, but it still has to do with beauty. Makeup can definitely mask imperfections, but if you don’t feel good on the inside it won’t show on the outside. A healthy lifestyle is the way to go. I have been off and on in trying to workout, but I have finally found some motivation deep within me to continue and stay dedicated. I would appreciate if you guys share any tips and tricks or any workouts etc… That could make my workout journey a little better. Thank you in advance. If you guys are also in the same boat with me please feel free to let me know and we can learn together and come up with an easy workout routine. I will be sharing some tips with you all as soon as I find some.
Good evening Beauties!! Happy Saturday. I hope you all are enjoying your day off. I’m back again with another review. This eyeshadow palette was purchased on Amazon. It was a total of $5.22 including shipping. I figured since I was venturing out to different brands with makeup brushes, I’d give some eyeshadow palettes a try! The packaging is sleek and simple. It’s all black with “Anself” written on the front. The palette came in excellent condition! 😀 No broken eyeshadows are always a plus. I swatched each color and the pigmentation was not bad for the price. I personally always use an eyeshadow primer, so I wouldn’t have a problem. If you purchase this palette I would definitely recommend an eyeshadow primer. It’ll give the eyeshadows a more rich color. Like all palettes, I loved some colors and didn’t care for others. I do believe I’ll be using this palette a lot though as there are a lot of neutral colors that would be great for blending other colors out.

Hey there Beauties!! I’m back with another review!! I received my Kingmas Oval Makeup Brush. If you’ve seen the weird, but cool oval makeup brushes that resemble spoons then this is basically a dupe. They do come in different sizes, but this is the one I chose. I paid $5 for this on Amazon and I wasn’t expecting anything great, but I have to say the overall hairs of the brush and so soft and dense just like the other set of brushes I’ve purchased! I’m not very big on having higher named products because there are always dupes that are just about the same, but some products I have to get because of the quality difference. I honestly don’t like the look of the handle of the brush because of the color. I absolutely love the Artis silver awesome handles, but hey, once the quality of the hairs are awesome then I can’t complain. It definitely picks up a good amount of products and it doesn’t leave my foundation looking streaky! Great coverage and doesn’t suck up my foundation! You guys should definitely purchase this product. It came with free shipping and didn’t take ridiculously long. I believe it only took 3 days which is awesome. 😊 Comment below and let me know if you’ve ever tried this brush. I’d love to hear your feedback!
Hey beauties!! Hope everyone is having an amazing Thursday! So today my little princess and I had an “us” day. We woke up at 7 and had scrambled eggs and toast. Then we took a nice stroll. I live in Florida so the weather was PERFECT, the wind was just right (not to hot or cold.) We then came back inside and she instantly fell asleep after her bottle. I couldn’t sleep after I gained so much energy so I decided to paint my daughters toes!! 😉 I painted her toes pink once before in October for Breast Cancer Awareness and I haven’t done it since. Since she’s walking now, I figured I’d do something cute for her! Many people are against nail polish on little ones, but I personally think it looks adorable. So anyways, here’s the picture: *The two little feet on the left is hers and the right is mine😂 I had to quickly share with you guys before we continue our “us” day!! I mean come on, who doesn’t love little chunky painted toes!! Comment and let me know what your favorite shade of polish is! Jamila and I would love to know💕
Good afternoon Beauties!! This evening I’m back with a review on these BS-Mall brush set in black and gold!! I did a little online shopping on Amazon this past weekend and I decided to try out some new brush set. As you all know I’m OBSESSED with the IT brushes and I did say I’d be open to brush reccomendations. This set was one that was recommended. So here we go with the review!! 🙃 This particular set comes with 10 brushes!! There are supposed to be 9 face brushes and 1 eye brush. I will probably use some of the face brushes for eyeshadow and see what works for me. The color I chose was the black and gold brushes because I don’t have any brushes with gold in it. They are synthetic brushes. When I opened the package, I did notice a strong smell of paint. I read on the little paper that was sent along with the brushes the solution was to wash the brushes. I thought I’d just take them out of the package and let them sit on my dresser for a couple minutes and it sure did the trick. The softness of the brushes are AMAZING as well as the density of the brushes which is definitely a plus in my opinion. I haven’t tried out the brushes yet, but I will be doing another review after I’ve given them a try. The overall […]
Hey there Beauties!! I don’t know about you guys, but after a long day I love relaxing after I put little Jamila into bed (my 9 month old daughter). No matter how busy we are, we should take at least 10-15 minutes for ourselves. Some of my essentials in my nightly routine are: Pampers sensitive wipes (I gave up makeup wipes when I become a mom and tried one of these out) 😂 Body shops shower gel and body butter in “raspberry” (I stocked up on it when they first came out with it) you can probably find it in some Marshalls. Hope in a jar night cream by Philosphy Victoria Secrets body mist in “Mango temptation” EOS in “blackberry” (how could I have missed that??) Green tea with a little milk and sugar 🙃 With that being said, I hope all of you have a relaxing evening. Go ahead and treat yourselves to some “Me Time” you guys deserve it. 💕 In the comments, let me know what your #1 nightly essential is.

Hello Beauties!! So since we’re all going to go through this journey together, I figured it would only be right to give you a background of myself. Well, I was born in “The city that never sleeps” and absolutely loved it. My parents moved to “The Sunshine State” when I was a little over 7. Growing up I absolutely loved makeup, beauty and pretty much anything girly. After all I did grow up with two brothers, so any chance I got to be girly, I took advantage. I got married when I was 18 to my high school sweetheart and in April I gave birth to a beautiful little girl. I guess you can say I settled down pretty fast, but that just gives me a chance to enjoy my daughter and husband a little longer. I can’t wait to hear all of your stories!! I’d love to know where each one of you are from so make sure to comment it below💕
Good evening Beauties!! Ok, so I’ve tried a lot of brushes and many of them suck! I think we can all agree on that. The face brushes either leave your foundation streaky, don’t pick up enough product or feels rough on your face. Same goes for the eye brushes. Well, I don’t know if you guys are familiar with IT cosmetics. Yes, IT cosmetics. Haha. This is not a typo. It’s such an amazing brand. I absolutely love every single product in their line. Especially the brushes!!! These are the SOFTEST brushes ever and they don’t leave your foundation looking streaky. They pick up just the right amount of product and they are oh-so-soft! I absolutely love it. They have different lines of brushes. So make sure you check them out! What makes it even better is it’s great for beginners coming into makeup because they have essential sets. So, instead of having to go through a million brushes and getting frustrated, all you have to do is just buy a set. Also, sometimes the IT cosmetics website runs a family and friends discount. It’s about 20-25%!! Which is even more better! That’s when I got mine and they were and awesome buy! I’ve been using it for about 2 years and more and still they’re my go to set! Comment with your favorite brush line. I’d love to try them out. 💕
