Too Faced Love Flush Blush in I Will Always Love You



Hi loves, I must say it is one of my favorite time of the year when Ulta has their 21 Days of Beauty, and of course I have been taking advantage of the sale! I was able to pick up one of the Too Faced Love Flush blushes, and I was able to get it for half off. I ended up getting the shade I Will Always Love You which is a beautiful peachy blush which I thought would be perfect for when the weather gets a little warmer where I am located. I have never tried this formula before and I wish I would have picked up all of the shades because I am so in love. 

One thing I love about the blush is the packaging. Too Faced comes out with some of the best packaging when it comes to their products. I love the heart shape and also the detail that is on the actual blush. These blushes are much thinner compared to their Sweetheart Perfect Flush blushes. They do not take up as much space and are perfect for traveling.

I Will Always Love You is just a great everyday summer shade. The formula is is very buttery. They have amazing pigmentation and apply so easily to the cheeks. I also noticed that the blush blends out like a dream. It is basically everything I look for when it comes to a blush. 

Sadly the half off sale for this product was only for one day, but I honestly think it is worth the full price! Let me know if you have any of these blushes! I have my eye on Baby Love next! That shade looks stunning!

NEW Ulta Single Eyeshadows Swatches & Review


Anyone else have a love for single eye shadows? I know I do and I always get suckered in. Ulta recently released tons of new single eyeshadows that pop out of its packaging and can be placed into either a Z Palette or an Ulta Palette. They currently have 36 different shades to choose from. When I ordered these, they were having an amazing deal where when you buy four single shadows you got four for free. And on top of it, I got the free 8 pan palette to go with it! As you can tell when it came to picking my shades, I stuck with my neutrals. I picked out a few matte shades as well as a few shimmery shades. 

The 8 shades I went with are: Coconut which is a light yellow matte beige, Whatevs which is a light creamy shimmery beige, Petite which is a light pink matte beige, Desire which is a medium matte brown, Pin-Up Girl which is a light pinkish shimmery taupe, Suede which is a deep matte taupe, Italian Espresso which is a deep brown shade that comes with gold and pink micro glitter and Coffee Bean which is a deep matte brown. 

Which the matte shades I thought the texture was buttery but they did apply a little chalky. They blended out nicely but with the darker shades you really have to pack on the shades to get a good color pay off. The shimmery shades were not as pigmented either. I had to add a lot of product to get good color pay off. 

The single shadows retail for $8.50 each and I think they are good beginner eye shadows, but you can find a lot better shadows for a lot less. MAC shadows are only $6.00 and I find them to be a lot better quailty then the Ulta shades. And the 8 pan palette retails for $12.50. I am not sure if the shades I picked were just duds, but I still may pick up a few more shades to try. I thought the shades we were pretty but wish they had better pigmentation. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried these yet and if so, what did you think of the quailty?

You can purchase these shadows at www.ulta.com. If you are looking to purchase them, I would wait for them to have a sale. When I purchased mine I got four shades for free, plus the palette for free so I had saved a lot of money. I do not think they are worth $8.50 each.

LORAC California Dreaming Eye Shadow Palette Swatches & Review



I am so excited to share with you guys my thoughts and swatches on the new LORAC California Dreaming Eye Shadow Palette. I haven't purchased an eye shadow palette in such a long time, but once I laid eyes on this palette, I knew I needed it in my collection. It comes with 12 beautiful shades with a mixture of mattes and shimmers. LORAC also came out with a blush palette part of this collection and its stunning as well. But of course the eye shadow palette was calling my name. I thought the shades in this palette would be a great go to palette for Spring and Summer. 

The packaging of this palette is so cute. The palette its self is white and tons of cute little symbols on it. It has butterflies, cats, shells etc. It basically screams beach to me. Even though not all the items on the palette are from the beach. (LOL) 

I found the shades to be extremely buttery. The texture reminds me a lot of their pro palette eye shadows. They did have some fall out since they are so buttery and smooth. However they do blend out really nicely and have really good color pay off. Onto the shade names:
  • Sand Castle is a white highlight shade that is perfect for the brow bone and inner corner.
  • Button is a pretty tan matte shade that is perfect for a transition shade.
  • Overcast is a matte lilac purple shade.
  • Bonfire is a very light pink matte shade.
  • Hot Toddy is a almost like a coral pink/red, this shade is also matte. I did have a little bit of a hard time blending this shade out. 
  • Starfish is a stunning medium orange shade.
  • Seaside is one of my favorites in this palette. It is a beautiful shimmery deep green. 
  • Cable Knit is a beautiful brown with a little bit of a red undertone.
  • Cozy is the perfect highlight shade. It is a matte cream. 
  • Boots is a pretty shimmery gun metal shade.
  • Kitty Cat is seriously the start of the whole entire palette. It is a beautiful shimmery champagne taupe shade. I seriously recommend picking up this palette just for this shade! It is a stunning color. 
  • 65 Degree's is a light shimmery pink/cream shade.
I cannot get enough of Kitty Cat. It is seriously one of my new favorite eye shadows. I am also loving all of the shades in this palette. It comes with a good variety to create many looks. With the mattes and shimmers and light to dark shades, it is the perfect overall palette!

You can purchase this palette at www.ulta.com for only $30.00.
