Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone had a great weekend and Father’s Day, my weekend was great and somewhat relaxing. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a review on how I feel about Milk Makeup hydro grip primer I got. I got a good feel on it and got time to gather my thoughts about this product and wanted to share just in case anyone looking to try it out.

So I purchased this primer not to long ago, I was looking to try out a new primer because for a good two to three years now I’ve been using the becca matte primer and I’ve been sticking to it. And I wanted to look for a primer that can hold my makeup and not make my face look or feel dry, because the becca primer is matte but sadly it leaves a white consistency on my face. I wanted to try the hydro primer at first I was unsure about it because how the consistency looked and it looked like it would leave a sticky feeling afterwards but I decided to give it a try because I needed a primer and I had no second choice to try to be honest lol.

The hydro grip primer is a hydrating gripping primer, this product carries cannabis seed extract and blue agave extract for all day hydration. One of the things i love about the product is it has aloe water in it and it blends clear to work with all skin types. For product to work best is to apply product over clean skin, pump one to two shots apply product and let sit for one minute to activate grip. You can also wear this primer alone if you just want an no make up day and have glowy looking skin. After using this product it does what it says my face felt 100% hydrated. I did not get a sticky greasy feeling after application even a few minutes after applying the product, and a little goes a long way with this product which i love because i honestly rather buy products that can last me awhile. After applying my foundation on it blended well with no issues my foundation looked smooth and blended in well with the primer. The only thing I didn’t get to test was the length of time it holds up I didn’t have mt foundation on long enough to see how my foundation looked hours later. But I cant honestly talk about that and give results because we all have different skin types and how my make up may look hours later yours may look different so it all varies. My skin is only oily in my T zone and chin so usually hours later it only gets oily there but hopefully this product helps with that issue.

If I had to rate this product out of 10 id give a 7 just because I still need to wear the product more and get more of a feel out of it and wear it for a good couple of hours and see how my foundation holds up. But overall I love the product it was worth the buy and I honestly cant complain. If any of you have tried it what are your thoughts? Or is anyone going to try it out? Let me know in the comments I always love to hear from you all, and ill talk to you all in the next blog!

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Wednesday! I hope you all are having a great week. It’s the 5th of June and I am just now writing my June goals for the month, I have realized that I probably won’t have high expectations this month because of a lot going on. This month I am doing a lot of packing because I am getting ready to move, I am super excited for this move I am so ready to be leaving my apartment. I am ready to start a new chapter in my family life, also after this move I will be putting up more content and be even more consistent with my blog.

One of my goals are to consistently at least on my social media platforms. Especially Twitter and Instagram I want to increase my followings, be more engaging with my followers because before increasing numbers I at least want connections with my followers. My second goal is pretty similar to the first, I want to continue to improve my content with Instagram. I am always trying to put up the best quality of pictures on my instagram; one thing I believe in is if you don’t put out the best or least quality it can always lead to lack of following and engagement. I am always hearing this consistently when doing my research on social media containing being a blogger. My third and last goal is to work hard and increase my views on my blog, I feel like this will always be a goal every month for most bloggers I mean even if you got a thousand every month you want to push for two. Sometimes I feel like giving up on blogging but I remember it’s not about the numbers I started all this because I love it. Soon enough my numbers will grow, heck today I made it to more views ! I am getting somewhere and I feel proud of it.

And there you have it three of my big goals for the month of June, its always hard to keep up with blogging especially being a mom and a wife but I feel like setting goals for yourself every month helps motivate you even more. I hope this blog helps in some way, thank you all for reading, sorry if my blogs seem short I am trying to put out posts while dealing with a move and kids running around. There will be a post up Friday morning at 9am EST standard time so look out for that! Remember to like & comment I always love to hear from you !

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post! Happy Tuesday I hope everyone weekend went well? I sadly had to schedule Monday post for today because of mom life taking over on Sunday, that I honestly forgot to plan and schedule my post. Sunday was simply not my dad it was super busy, but I am happy I got it up now. For today’s blog post I wanted to do an review on the Fenty foundation. I wanted to give my honest opinion on the product since I’ve got to use it a couple times now.

Awhile back I purchased the Fenty Beauty pro filter soft matte long wear foundation, it’s known for a soft matte build-able coverage. Also comes in 50 shades, I have purchased the colour 410. I wanted to give this foundation a try due to me loving the Fenty glosses and the foundation seemed light, also this foundation was matte and am a sucker for matte foundations. I also saw how it was for combination skin types which I am so I decided why not? I purchased the colour in 410 because my skin number I got matched with matched me with that and I saw it somewhat matched my skin tone. Despite it chose that colour I feel like it’s not exactly my skin shade to get it to blend well I have to buff it out a couple times. I also found the shade really bright and comes off really yellow and to tell you the truth I hate foundations that come off with a strong yellow undertone, I find those are the ones that leave you with the “mask” look. The foundation felt light and I found it did give a matte finish, and little goes a long way. I overall ended up somewhat disliking but I feel it was more to Sephora recommending the wrong shade but I feel like it’s because it’s the closest shade to me. I usually use to highlight areas on my face, other then that it’s pretty much less used. I wouldn’t say the foundation is awful but I am currently not loving how this shade blends with me, if this is the only shade for me I don’t see myself using this foundation.

Thanks for reading my review, if you’ve have purchased this foundation what are your thoughts on it? Is it your fav? I love to hear your thoughts, next planned blog post will be up Wednesday at 9am EST!

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday! I am so happy I will get this week to have a bit of relaxation due to my daughter being on spring break. This gives me more time to work on my blog and do more Pinterest, I am officially on the Pinterest obsession. For today’s blog post I am finally doing my review for my Huda beauty foundation and the Morphe palette I got awhile back. I wanted to use these products a couple times before having my thought on these products.

So I got the Huda beauty faux filter foundation, I have been dying to try this foundation out. I have heard really good things about this product and also all the tutorial video have pulled me in. This foundation is full coverage foundation, it has 30 shades it’s a natural finish and this foundation is for combination to oily skin type. I so far absolutely love this foundation it is now my top foundation, I have been using it every time I been doing my make up. It does what it says it has the best coverage and it feels hydrating on my skin, it blends in so well. I love how gives off a smooth silky look and I find it holds up a good time throughout the day. I would honestly purchase this again and again, the first time I used this foundation I did end up breaking out but I would not say maybe it was the foundation I honestly do not know if it was but I still would purchase this. I would love to try the primer with this product, I might just end up giving it a try and see how well they work together. Overall this was a well worth buy, I would consider you all giving this product a try if you haven’t!

The next product I got was the Morphe (just noticed I have totally been spelling the name wrong) 9B bronzed babe eye shadow palette. I am not a person to wear eye shadow but I automatically fell in love with this palette as son as I seen it on Sephora. This palette has nine creamy shimmering shades, it has very pigmented shades which is what made me party fall in love with this product. Most palettes I have used over the years the colours haven’t been very pigmented and that is one of the biggest disappointments. So far using the palette I have nothing bad to say, the colours show up well and blend well also. I know one of the hardest problems for me was finding palettes that have a good amount of shades that will look good with my tone of skin and this does the job! I honestly love a good neutral tones and bronze tones anything that is more in the fall scheme which this palette is. 

 

If I had to purchase this product again I would honestly purchase it again, it is the first palette I dont regret purchasing. The colours are true to tone as online, and I also love the packaging also. I was not disappointed in this shopping trip, I would recommend you all to go check that palette out. And that is my honest review on these products, thanks to you all for taking time for reading my thoughts. I hope this review helped on your thoughts on these products or even brand, look out for my next post which will be up Wednesday at 9am EST time.

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Tuesday I hope everyone had a great weekend, mine was super busy but at least has Sunday to relax a bit and unwind. Its a full busy week for me though hopefully I can get everything needed done. I wanted to start the week off with a current “whats in my makeup bag” post, I have done one a while back and wanted to do an updated one as because a makeup bag never stays the same am I right?

So one thing I have realised is I carry so much more in my makeup bag then before. I believe because of current product obsession and also maybe because of the current season? I live in Toronto, ON so it is currently winter so every season I only carry around products I need or currently need that specific day.

Whats in my makeup bag? So first thing I absolutely need always when am out is the current lipstick or gloss I am wearing that day of course in case I need to reapply. Also what I always need next is sometimes I carry around tissue, the reason is to blot, throughout the day I sometimes get a bit oily around my T zone and chin area and I hate walking around without touching up my face. Another top need is my lash glue, I now wear lashes every time I do a full on face or even if i just do my brows I have to have lashes on. In case a lash pops off I always make sure to have my lash glue. Those are all my top beauty must haves in my make up bag that has to always be there no matter what season, I even keep a lip balm in my bag for dry lips to apply before my lipstick or even if though out the day I dont want lipstick on anymore and just a balm its there. That should be in every beauty bag especially in the winter.

For the other beauty products I have that usually do change related to season, is I always have different primers in my make up bag. This is usually a change for me on mood, if I feel like using one primer I haven’t to in awhile id use it also it depends how my skin is feeling. But the top primer I usually use 90% of the time is the Becca matte primer, this helps me not get a oily face though out the day. So in my beauty bag I also usually have my brow essentials laying in there that isn’t a beauty must I need through out the day but I usually say to myself ” What if I need to fix my brows?” and so because of that I walk around with that also. But to be honest I do carry around a bunch of random things in my beauty bag I dont really need. When I am applying make up I sometimes use products and just then dump it into my bag and I then just leave it and because of this when I do carry around my bag its just packed with some products I dont even need or least at the time. One of the things I noticed I have a lot in my beauty bag is moisturiser I carry around different kinds and this is because of what I just explained, at this time its not so much a bad thing because its currently winter here in Toronto, ON and its pretty bad at the moment and its always good to keep moisturised.


I always love keeping a good mascara in my bag also, and I honestly dont need that around but I love collecting beauty samples from Sephora and I love trying out new mascaras am currently loving the Marc Jacobs one. And I always just throw them into my make up bag as a current habit. A non beauty item I love keeping is a good hair tie, yes I carry around a hair tie this is because anytime I am out and am annoyed of my hair or I need to tie it up I always got one on me. And I know id end up needing one because there has been a couple times when it came in handy. Well ! that is pretty much it for whats in my make up bag, its not a big bag so I do not keep that much in there but hopefully what I may keep in there could help one of you with yours! Also I know again I have been late with Monday post due to being a mom and being sleep deprived hopefully I can get back on track and get my blog posts done by Sunday I hope everyone understands. I hope you guys have a great rest of your Tuesday !
