16CB3138-A8E4-49BB-A541-06B70F44B14D

Hello!! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We had a busy weekend🙈 Lib and I had a little girls night out with some friends and went to see Beauty and the Beast! She loved it and clapped after every act! It was so stinkin cute! We went to a bridal shower and to see the Easter Bunny on Sunday…. ummm let’s just say I refuse to ever see the Easter Bunny again… Bennett has never been fan… he freaks out every.single.time, but I guess I don’t blame him, but I had to get Jamison’s first Easter Bunny pics! Haha I had to sit by the bunny because that’s the only way Bennett would be by him🙈

So, before the Easter Bunny chaos, I made a mad dash in to Ulta to pick up a few things! My little family is heading to Florida next week because we are in a wedding! My sweet bestie since kindergarten is getting married!!! Our dresses are a beautiful vanilla color, so obviously I need a tan😳 I’ve heard great things about the St. Moriz instant self tanning mousse! I got the color “medium” and I really like it so far!! I’ll give you guys another update on it in a few weeks! I repurchased this IT Cosmetics “Superhero” mascara! I looooove this stuff!!! It is definitely worth the money!!!! I also love Tarte’s “Shape Tape” concealer! I just ran out and heard that Makeup Revolution’s “Conceal and Define” concealer was comparable, so I thought I would try it before repurchasing the Shape Tape! I bought the color “c10” and have only used it twice and am not quite sold on it yet… I’ll let ya guys know about this too in a few weeks! I picked up a few NYX lip pencils! They are buy one get one half off, so go get ya some!! I bought this plumping top coat and really like it! It is also on sale!! I’m OBSESSED with Bareminerals liquid matte lippies!! I just got “Smooch” and I have “Swag!” They are soooo long wearing and on sale as well! Let me know your faves and what I need to try!!

Sorry for the long post!!

Thanks for reading!

New Beauty Products

Hellooooo!! So, I haven’t done a post about beauty products in a while, so I thought I would update you guys on some of my new products! My sister is makeup obsessed and she is trying to convert me! I’m a clothes girl, but she says it is so worth it to splurge on good beauty products. I’m slowly purchasing a few new items here and there!

NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Palette: I love love this and highly recommend it! I’m not a contour pro yet, but I’m working on it! I don’t even use my other bronzers now! The palette is fab and so worth the money!

Make Up Forever Duo Matte Powder: I’m not completely sold on this. I have been using it for 6 weeks or so and feel like I can find something better! I hear their liquid foundation is fab, so maybe I’ll give that a try! My skin has gone cray cray since becoming pregnant.. I usually have pretty clear and smooth skin. My skin keeps producing little bumps(not pimples?) and is kind of dry and definitely not smooth. If you have any suggestions on products or cleansers let me know!
Maybelline a Dream Fresh BB Cream: So, this is my first ever BB cream… I know I know.. I need to get with it. I really do like it! I thought I would try a cheaper brand and see what the hype is about before I splurge. I use the color medium/deep. When I use this I don’t have to apply a moisturizer before applying my makeup. It has pretty good coverage, but I do feel like it makes me look a little oily throughout the day.

NYX Matte Black Liner: I love this eyeliner! I like liquid liner the best, but when I’m in a hurry this is definitely my go to liner!

Lancôme: I’m not sold on this just yet. I have read so many blog posts on how to get thicker lashes and a lot of girls recommend a lash primer/extender. I feel like it makes my lashes stick together after using it a few days in a row.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara: I like this mascara so for! I go between using this and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara! I will probably buy this product again!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I’m heading to Chicago to go see Taylor Swift with my sister! I’ll probably be the only pregnant girl, but I’m okay with that!

Xoxo,
Amanda
