Sephora Beauty 101.

I am a total sucker for these little package sets that Sephora comes out with! For $32 you get a whole bunch of name brand products to try out without committing to the full size. (In my opinion this is totally worth the price because I honestly can’t even finish a full size of most any of my products before they go bad.)

So in this cool little makeup bag you get; 

Peter Thomas Roth acne face wash, Boscia blotting pads, The Righteous Body Butter by Soap & Glory, Too Faced chocolate soleil bronzer, Murad acne spot fix, Benefit’s they’re real mascara, Ole Henriksen makeup remover wipes, Bare Minerals moisturizer, Sephora and Buxom lip glosses, A Glamglow mask, Clean skin roller perfume, and a Strivectin moisturizer.

I’ve already used some of these products and so far I’m very happy with what I’ve tried out.

I’m completely obsessed and I want to buy some more of these little sets! 

To all my Disney obsessed beauties out there, check out these awesome Ariel sketch makeup bags for traveling and brushes!

They are out and available at Walgreens by the brand SOHO beauty, all three of these bags are under ten dollars too! I’m not aware if they are limited edition or not, but I am assuming so since the Villain cases they did last fall were, as well as the Snow White cases they just recently put out.

Anyhow, I definitely must pick up at least one of these bags, (even though I already have so many travel cases) but I am a sucker for anything Disney and I hope SOHO beauty continues to make more Disney themed makeup bags!

What Disney character would you like to see?

I’m excited for fall. 

It always means cute new warm clothes, candles, sweet scents, and great new makeup collections!

Keep a look out and stock up on the best top coat that is about to be discontinued! 
Revlon’s Colorstay nail enamel line is sadly being discontinued.. This includes the base coat and the top coat (that I rave about). I spotted all these clearance stickers at Target and some have been popping up at Walgreens as well. 
But with a door closing, a door always opens. The new Revlon Gel Envy polish is here to replace it and I have heard a lot of good things about it. I’ve yet to try it, and will be buying a bottle as soon as I get some coupons for it. It’s a gel like substance without the need of a UV lamp. It also has a built in base coat, and this new line will have a gel like top coat to go along with the polishes. The only bummer is that these gel like polishes are a little more expensive and have less of a color range.. But we shall see what will happen in the future!

Milani Gel Powder Eyeshadow- These little babies catch my eye everytime I walk into Walgreens. I haven’t been able to pick any up yet though because I haven’t seen enough reviews about them.
They look so velvety and have a very nice selection of colors to choose from.
My only question is, are they pigmented?

Loving this natural look for summer.

The "no makeup" makeup look can be so effortless on these hot days when you don’t feel like doing anything extreme.

BB Cream is great in the summer because it’s so light weight and covers any flaws, without clogging your pores. 

Waterproof mascara and brows are important for anyone who is afraid they will accidentally smudge makeup all over throughout the day. I especially love Makeup Forever’s “Aqua Brow” formula.

Top the look off with a little bit of bronzer in place of blush, for that summer glow, and a nude lip plumping gloss to show off the lips and really complete that natural beauty look. 

I wear this makeup look pretty often when I don’t feel like getting ready for the day, yet still want to look presentable. 

Send me your “no makeup” looks and I will feature them in this post!

Stay hydrated this summer, that is the most important beauty tip of all! 

Xoxo Glitzy.

Harsh chemicals found in makeup.

Lately I’ve been researching all of the negative and harsh chemicals that can be found in makeup, and I went and threw out a lot of products I didn’t agree with. Hopefully this will lead to less rash irritations on my skin and eye lids.

What skin friendly/natural makeup do you use?

Won’t Buy Wednesday! 

I feel like I haven’t done one of these in a while and when I saw this sitting on my makeup desk, I knew I had to write something about it.

This is a new liquid eyeliner from Revlon. It’s called “Skinny” in the color Black Out. It was $6 at Target and a complete waste of money, in my opinion.

I am very picky with eyeliner, I wear it everyday and I’m always on the hunt to find cheap alternatives seeing as how I go through it so often. This one claims to help you achieve the perfect cat eye with the skinny brush. The brush sucks, its one of those little bristle ones that just flops when you begin to apply it. The formula is not consistent, it’s too streaky and it does not make the perfect cat eye. I admit the color is a very true black, but only after one dip in the pot. The formula must have some sort of ingredient that makes my eyes allergic because my eyes watered and itched all day, and with the watery eyes came the smearing. 

I don’t know, I just didn’t like this at all. So far the only eyeliner that I will always re-purchase is Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner, but I want to find a cheaper drugstore liner. 

Any thoughts?

Check out some of these gorgeous lip swatches that Kat Von D posted on her Instagram earlier!

These swatches are from her new Studded Kiss Lipstick collection, available now at Sephora.
All together there are 30 shades to choose from and these puppies supposedly have 10 hour staying power.

Now I know this lipstick collection is going to be a problem for me because I literally like every single color I see.
Especially the royal blue on the right which is named after her cute cat “Poe”.

Would you try out these daring and crazy colors?
