BATH AND BODY WORKS SEMI ANNUAL SALE HAUL 2015

It's been a long time since I've posted a Bath and Body Works Haul on here, but I really wanted to show you all the great deals I got this year at the Semi-Annual Sale! If you use B&BW products, be sure to check it out because their products are up to 75% off!




I got 6 shower gels from this sale because I go through them faster than the other products. I got Tea & Ginger, Peach Bellini, Juniper Breeze, 2 Pearberry, and Plumeria, and I paid $3.50-$4.00 for each!


The two lotions I got are Pearberry and Plumeria, which I paid $3.50 for, but currently on the website they are $4.00.


These hand soaps were only $3.25 and I got them in Perfect Beach Day and Seaside Sunset.


This fine fragrance mist was only $4.00 and I got the scent Peach Bellini.


And lastly, I got two wallflowers for $3.00 each in the scents Guava Colada and Georgia Peach, and I got this seashell shaped fragrance plug for $3.00.

Have you been to the Semi-Annual Sale? What deals did you get?

Colour Pop Cosmetics Haul!

It's about time I've done a post about these Colour Pop products that I've been trying! After months of hearing people rave about the affordable price, the shade selection, and the quality of Colour Pop products, I finally gave in and decided to try some of their cheek products.


Here are the cheek products I got:
Super Shock Cheek Matte in Happy Hour, Tonic, Rain, Swift
Super Shock Cheek Pearlized in Avalon

I'm extremely excited to try out Tonic (orange), and Rain (purple)!


  

And at the time of my order, they were giving away a free limited edition eyeshadow with every order called Birthday Girl.


I'll be reviewing all of these products individually, but I hope you enjoyed this short haul! Have you tried any products from Colour Pop?

2nd Love Cosmetics Plumeria Sheet Mask Review!

I recently tried another mask from 2nd Love Cosmetics called the Plumeria Facial Mask (see my last mask review here), which is a sheet mask with a refreshing Vitamin C and Vitamin E solution. It's only $2.99 and available here.


Sheet masks are pretty easy to use. All you have to do is unfold the mask and lay it on your face. This mask was very saturated with product, and felt extremely soothing when I placed it on my skin. It had a tropical scent that smelled great too! This is awesome for days that you want to pamper yourself at home.

And the best part about sheet masks is that you don't have to wash it off when you are finished using it. After twenty minutes pass, just massage the excess product into the skin.

After removal, my skin felt very soft and supple, and I noticed that my makeup went on smoother the next day. I have oily skin, yet I still felt like this moisturizing mask improved the texture of my skin. It does contain Vitamin C which helps with skin repair and dark spots, but I think I would have to use more of the masks on a regular basis to see a difference in dark spots.

This is a great mask, especially at the $2.99 price tag! I recommend trying it if you want a soothing, relaxing mask for at-home spa days. I will likely be repurchasing it!

Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer Review!

I can't even explain to you all how excited I was to finally try the Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer! I constantly see rave reviews for this product, so I was happy to put it to the test for the past few weeks! Did it live up to the hype? Keep reading to find out!


The Amazing Concealer is $42.00 for the full size (.5 fl. oz.) and $28.00 for the mini size (.2 fl. oz.). It's available here.



The first thing I noticed when researching this concealer is the huge shade selection! It comes in twenty shades. I wear the shade deep.

The versatility of this concealer is also notable. I can use this anywhere on my face. I use it on the dark circles underneath my eyes, and it also does a great job of covering any blemishes. To apply the product, I squeeze a tiny bit onto the back of my hand (a little bit goes a looong way), and I take a concealer brush or my finger and distribute and blend it onto the areas I want to cover.

The coverage is phenomenal! I think this is the highest coverage I have ever used. Yet my skin still looks natural when wearing this. I love using this concealer on its own with a little bit of powder on hot days when I don't want to have a ton of makeup. And it lasts,without smearing and fading throughout the day.

So as you can tell, this concealer definitely does live up to the hype that surrounds it! I can see why this is a holy grail concealer for a lot of people, and I love that I can make great use of it on heavy and light makeup days. And I'm happy to have a perfect shade match. The price is the one thing that I think might scare people away, but remember that a little bit of this goes an extremely long way! I highly recommend trying it out!

Adovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub

When the Adovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub arrived at my door a week ago, I was expecting it to be like any other body scrub that I've tried, however, this scrub is extremely unique! It is made with real dead sea salt and moisturizing oils to exfoliate and hydrate the skin. It is available HERE for $14.95.



This scrub is easy to use, just scoop it out and gently massage it onto the body. The whole process is very relaxing because it smells like the ocean. The salt pieces are pretty large, so they do a great job of exfoliating as well. This is great for a day you want to pamper yourself because it feels so nice massaging it into the skin.

After I finished rubbing this all over my body, I rinsed it off and I was completely shocked at how soft and moisturized my skin felt. I felt as though I had just applied body butter to my skin, when I had really just been in the shower. I've used moisturizing shower products before, but none of them come close to the smoothness and hydration that my skin felt after using this product.

This is a product that I highly recommend, and I am definitely repurchasing when I run out! This is the best body scrub I've tried.

It Cosmetics It's All About You Set | QVC Today's Special Value 6/8/15

The It Cosmetics It's All About You set is a four-piece collection including customer favorites. It is the Today's Special Value on QVC today, so if you want to take advantage of the exclusive launches included in this set, you have to act fast! It's available for $59.95! I've been trying all of the products in this set for a little over a week now, so read on to see all my thoughts on these products!



NEW Naturally Pretty Face Palette
This palette comes with the Hello Light Creme, the Vitality Matte Bronzer, the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder, and the worldwide launch of the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Blush.

I've been enjoying this palette because it includes all of the types of face products I like to use on a daily basis, and I've been looking for an all-in-one product like this for a while! The powder products have a silky smooth, finely-milled texture that feels weightless on the skin. And the cream highlighter blends into the skin effortlessly and gives off a natural sheen. Every day that I've worn these products, I've been impressed with the staying power.



Below (from top to bottom) are concentrated swatches of the Hello Light Creme, the Vitality Matte Bronzer, and the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Blush (the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder is translucent and won't show up in a swatch).


Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush
This double ended brush includes a fluffy foundation brush that works well with powder and liquid products, and a soft concealer brush for easy blending on those hard-to-reach areas.

I've been using this brush with the powder foundation and the concealer included in this set everyday, and I love the flawless finish it allows me to have. Double sided brushes like this are nice for travel too since you get two nice brushes in one!


NEW Celebration Foundation SPF 50
This powder foundation blurs imperfections and has a natural finish, and it now comes in SPF 50.

I've been wanting to try the Celebration Foundation for a little while now, and I am so excited that they've made a version with SPF 50! This powder gives me flawless, yet natural looking skin. You won't have to worry about cakiness when wearing this because of its smooth finish and finely milled texture. This powder also impressed me with the oil control! This is a must-try if you have oily skin! The only thing I will say is I wish the Celebration Foundation came in more darker shades, since the shade pictured, Rich, is the darkest shade.




Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer
Great coverage and anti-aging ingredients are included in this long lasting concealer.

Here I have the shade deep, and it is a perfect match for my skin tone. I use it to cover up the dark circles under my eyes, as well as conceal blemishes and dark spots on my face. I am very impressed with the creaminess and blendibility of this concealer. This is one of my favorite products of this set, and I can definitely see why people constantly rave about it!



Here are all of these products in action on my face! You can definitely see the glow that the blush and highlighter are giving me, and the flawless skin is all thanks to the concealer and powder foundation!



Visit qvc.com right now and click on Today's Special Value under the search bar to purchase this set! This will only be available until 11:59 (PT) on June 8th, 2015.

Electric Summer Eye Makeup Look

Since we're approaching the summer season, I've been using my Urban Decay Electric Palette a lot more to create bright looks. The look I'm sharing with you today features reddish orange shades with a pop of purple.



After applying an eyeshadow primer, I highlighted my brow bone with a cream colored eyeshadow and blended a medium brown shade into my crease. Then I took the bright orange and placed it on the inner and outer parts of my eye, leaving the center blank. I put a shimmery gold eyeshadow on the center of the eye lid, making sure all of the shades blend together nicely by going over all of the areas with a blending brush. Finally I placed a bright purple eyeshadow on the lower lash line, and I finished the look with eyeliner and mascara.





Products Used:
-Billion Dollar Brows Brow Duo Pencil
-Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil
-Benefit Stay Don't Stray
-Paula Dorf Aztec City Eyeshadow Palette (cream and brown colored eyeshadows)
-Urban Decay Electric Palette (Slowburn, Urban)
-Urban Decay Half Baked Eyeshadow
-Mary Kay Black Pencil Liner
-Maybelline Master Graphic Liquid Liner
-Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

I hope you all enjoyed this look! Have you been inspired by the warmer weather to change up your makeup looks?
