My Newest Obsession

MQ_lipsense1Screen Shot 2017-04-09 at 3.40.23 PM^ 1 layer Hazelunut + 1 layer Caramel Latte + Glossy Gloss

I’ve heard about LipSense awhile ago. I’ve seen videos of women wearing their products and rubbing their lips to prove that their lip color won’t smudge and will stay on. I mean it looked legit so I’ve been really wanting to try it out! I was so excited that Chante Fox from My Kiss & Tell sent me a lip color and gloss to try.

I started off Caramel Latte and Glossy Gloss and after one day of trying it, I had to get more so I got Hazelnut, Raisin and Matte Gloss. Honestly, I think I made a great selection because I’ve been mixing those 3 colors for a couple months and I’m still loving what I come up with 🙂 It’s so awesome that you are able to mix colors, especially when you’re just wanting a tint of a certain color.

I work full-time so it’s nice to put on my lip color in the morning before work and then… well, that’s it actually. Lol. I only have to put it on once a day. After that, you just apply the gloss throughout the day to keep your lips moisturized. I’m obsessed and I literally have been neglecting all my other lipsticks. You know I’m a fan if my MAC lipsticks are collecting dust, haha. I can’t wait to add to my LipSense collection!

If you’re dying to try it out, reach out to Chante Fox from My Kiss & Tell and let her know I sent you!

P.S. When you want to go for a matte look and use the Matte Gloss, you have to put on the Glossy Gloss FIRST for moisture then after a little while, put on the Matte. I didn’t know this at first and I put the Matte Gloss right on top of the lip color and let me just tell you… not cute.

Ipsy March 2017 Glam Bag Review

MQ_ipsymarch1What’s in the March 2017 “Tres Jolie” Glam Bag?

  1. INT Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Goddess Gold
  2. JeNu High Tech Beauty Marine Collagen Mineral Gel
  3. OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush
  4. Chella Tweezers
  5. ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black

MQ_ipsymarch5INT Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Goddess Gold

This shade is so pretty! This is the type of color that I typically wear when I want a more natural eyeshadow look. I like to wear it on my lids with a darker shade on my creases. It’s the perfect amount of shimmer! If you apply it with a wet brush, the color will show up a lot more.

MQ_ipsymarch3JeNu High Tech Beauty Marine Collagen Mineral Gel

 I love how this product comes with a dropper applicator. I tried this mineral gel on my face a couple times and you definitely get that instant gratification… my skin felt smoother and firmer. I’ll probably continue to use it a couple times a week since they claim to get rid of or prevent wrinkles! So far, so good.

MQ_ipsymarch6OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush

I normally wear pink blushes because I think that they look better on my skin tone. I’ve received other products from this brand a few times and they’re great! The products are pigmented and last awhile. This shade is so pretty and I actually ended up liking it 0n me. It’s perfect for summer. I’ll be switching off between my normal blush and this one for sure.

MQ_ipsymarch2Chella Tweezers

I don’t know about you but I always misplace my tweezers! And of course when I need them the most, they are all no where to be found lol. I was so excited to get this one by Chella because 1) the handle is super comfortable to hold and 2) it’s red (meaning I should be able to easily spot it in my over stuffed make-up bag haha. Not to mention, these work well too!

MQ_ipsymarch4ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black

Yay eyeliner! I know we get eyeliners in our glam bags often but I love it when we do because I mean, I can’t get enough of them! It’s actually perfect timing again because I lost the one I’ve been using… oops. This one by ModelCo glides on perfectly and is super pigmented which I love. It’s also the type of eyeliner that you don’t need to sharpen and just have to twist… my fave! I love that they sent the full size too which retails $14.

So this is the first bag in probably a year that I actually LOVE the bag it came in! It has such a chic look and I’d totally use it regularly. The blush color is perfection too! Back to the products though… which one is my fave?! Hm… I’d have to go with the tweezers then the eyeliner 🙂 Click here if you want to get Ipsy for only $10/month! The tweezers and eyeliner alone are $24! So worth it…

Products for Both Mama and Baby

IMG_6396MQ_babo4

I’m seriously known as the “bag lady,” even before kids I always had a ton of bags of literally everything I “might” need lol. Anyone else like me?! Haha. My family always gets annoyed of me when I go with them on a trip cause they already know to expect that I’ll have a ton of things with me. Now with 2 kids (well, soon it’ll be 3)… it’s been taken to the extreme. Obviously, clothes are a given but as far as health and beauty products, there’s always one for me and one for the babies.

I’m so glad Babo Botanicals sent me their natural and hypoallergenic lotion and 3-in-1 wipes that are for both mamas and babies. They smell AMAZING too! I spend so much money on baby hand & face wipes, as well as wipes for me, so this is a lifesaver. A major plus is knowing that there aren’t a ton of chemicals in them that could be harmful to little ones and knowing that the products I’m using on myself are safe enough for babies.

I’ve been using the lotion on Scarlett and Landon right after I bathe them and it leaves their skin feeling silky smooth. I give them baths in the evening before bedtime so the lavender scent is perfect for calming them (and myself) down lol. If you’re like me and every outing with the kids looks like you’re going on a mini vacation OR just looking for amazing new products for you and/or your little one, check Babo Botanicals out! They have  a ton of awesome products that I’ll have to try 🙂
