Collective October Haul

Hi everyone! I know I have been a bit busy lately but I am trying to post more on my YouTube channel. I already have a few videos set up so I will try to post them here as well since I haven't been as active on my blog as when I first started. I still have a ton of pictures saved up. All I have to do is type up the posts to go along with my pictures. 

Hopefully you guys will enjoy watching my haul video. I did have a couple of bloopers in there but lets see if you guys can find them. Haha. I had fun filming and hopefully you guys had fun watching my video. As always, thank you for watching and reading my blog. If you haven't already, please like and subscribe to both my blog and YouTube channel. :)

Swatches: ELF Studio Blush "Pink Passion"

Hi everyone! I was going through my makeup collection and noticed that I had an ELF Studio blush that was wedged all the way in the back of one of my drawers. It did take me a while to get it out because I had to take some items out before I could reach it. Since I have had this blush for a while, I decided to finally take it out of its box and swatch it. I was surprised that I had never used it before I love ELF Studio blushes. I already own a few of them and I love the ones that I have.

At first, when I saw how vibrant this blush was in the pan, I was a bit scared to wear it. Maybe that was why it was "hidden" in the back of my makeup collection. Some people would be intimidated to wear this, much less swatch it because of how bold it is. Plus it looks like a barbie pink in the pan.

When swatched, Pink Passion is actually a gorgeous pink. It isn't too vibrant making you look like are wearing too much blush. This is a blush that you can wear to brighten up your cheeks. It is definitely a wearable blush - one that I can see myself wearing all year around. If you are a fan of matte blushes, this one would be one that you would love. Just make sure not to use a heavy hand with this when packing it on.

I was actually surprised with how gorgeous this blush one once I tried it on my cheeks. This is great for those who are on budget because it retails for $3 and you can find it at your local Target, Walmart, and other select stores. If you are someone who wants to try out different blush shades and are on a budget, I would definitely recommend this.

Review & Swatches: Anastasia Bold Brow Kit “Dark Brown”

Hi everyone! I have been meaning to do this review ever since I bought this kit from Ulta. I have always wanted to try Anastasia brow products and when I saw this kit, I knew that it was such a great deal. All the products in this set are full size and this kit retails for $36 plus tax. I think the duo brow powder alone retails for $28 and for a few extra bucks, you get a full size brow gel. As far as I know, the kit comes in three shades: Taupe, Medium Brown and Dark Brown. I decided to go with Dark Brown but next time I will probably go with Medium Brown. The kit also comes with a dual ended brow brush, which I use every day. It is definitely one of my favorite brow products.

Besides the brow brush being my favorite thing in this set, it is the Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in “Dark Brown.” It comes with two shades in one compact. You can either mix the two shades together or use the dark shade for the ends of your brows and use the lighter shade for the front part of your brows. I would generally mix the two shades together for the ends of my brows and the lighter shade for the beginning of my brows. The brow powder lasts all day on my brows, even after a long day of hiking and even after working. It doesn't come off until I remove it from my brows with cleanser or with a makeup remover wipe.

The clear brow gel is quite nice too but not really a necessity for me. I could go without it. I did end up using it all up. I was tempted to buy another one but realized that my brows didn't need it. The clear brow gel does give your brows that shiny finished look, which I didn't like sometimes because it would look unnatural for me.

Ever since I started wearing the brow powder on my brows, I have been getting compliments on my brows. Brows are important and they can either improve your face or make it look wrong. With this brow powder, you can either go natural or have that dark eyebrow look. I have tried both. Whenever I decide to go a bit deep on my brows, people have asked if I had done permanent makeup on my brows. LOL

Anyways, this is a great kit and if you have wanted to try some of Anastasia’s brow products, you should definitely give this kit a try. Plus you get more bang for your buck with this. Let me know what products you use for your brows and if you have tried any of these products before. I would love to hear your opinions. As always, thank you for reading!
