Back to Blogging!

Well as you can see I haven't blogged since early June. I got really side tracked this summer with all these vacations I went on I didn't even remember to blog anything. Plus this summer I tried not to buy much new makeup, so I didn't really have much to blog about. And with all my vacations I wasn't really thinking about posting my outfits. But now I am back and it feels so good! I have bought so many new things recently that I am gong to be testing out so I will have some new makeup posts up here before you know it. 
And since it is almost fall, and fall is my favorite season, I will definitely be doing some fall outfit posts because I have bought some new fall clothes so I will definitely be sharing that with everyone! 
I also hope to be doing a small giveaway soon to thank everyone for not unfollowing my blog in my absent time. I will be buying some stuff soon for that and will have that up in the up coming months. I have school too so I won't be able to be blogging a ton, but I hope to be posting about once a week. 

Thanks for understanding!

Tuesday Tidbits: ELF Blush




I am sorry this post is late, I forgot it to post it on Tuesday! I have been on vacation so it has been throwing my days off.
This is the elf Studio Blush in the color 'Twinkle Pink'. This might be one of the first blushes I ever bought. It is a coral pink with glitter in it. In the pan it feels like it has big chunks of glitter because to the touch it is a rigid texture. But on the cheeks it doesn't come across too glittery. It does put some glitter on your cheeks so if you aren't into any glitter I wouldn't recommend this one to you. I love all things glittery and shimmery so this is right up my alley.
I love it because for only $3 it is so pigmented! It puts the cutest flush of coral pink across my cheeks. Almost every time I am in Sephora I swatch NARS 'Orgasm' and I always leave wishing I could buy it. To me, this color is pretty similar.  I wouldn't call it a dupe because I don't actually own the Orgasm blush to completely compare them side by side. But from my memory they seem pretty similar.
The bad thing about this blush is the fact that it has so much fallout. I don't think I have a heavy hand so I am amazed on how much product is wasted when I use this blush. I am glad it was only $3 because that is one thing that would make me not buy it if it was high end. I don't mind if products have some fallout because with powdery products it's unavoidable. This elf blush just has too much fallout.
Overall, I do like this blush because I can't expect it to have the best quality when I know I am not paying for quality. I still plan on using it a lot though because I love the color for my tanned skin.

What do you think of elf blushes?

Candy Candy






I have been eyeing up the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Palette for weeks now. When it first came out I didn't really want it, but after seeing multiple tutorials and reviews on the palette I began to want it. So after a brief scan of my makeup collection to see if I had anything remotely close to this palette in hopes of recreating a look I saw, I was happy to see that I had the Too Faced Bon Bon Palette. I got this palette last year for Christmas from one of my friends. I have been using this palette so much recently because I am on my 'no makeup buying' summer and have fallen back in love with this palette.
It seems to have a lot of colors that are very similar to some shades in the Chocolate Bar Palette.
This palette isn't ideal for traveling since it is big and bulky, but it can be brought with you if you're planning on going somewhere that isn't too far. Maybe if you were going on a road trip where space is more available then this would be good to bring. But if you are traveling by airplane and you are trying to be conservative with packing, this palette isn't the one.
It was limited edition, but I'm sure you could find it on Amazon or eBay. It came with an eyeshadow primer and a mascara, so that's an added bonus.
I think if you have this palette and you were thinking about getting the Chocolate Bar Palette I think you could skip out on it.
Hope this mini review helped!
