Mani Mondays | Cinderella 2015

 
Happy Monday! A week ago, I went to see the new Cinderella movie starring Lily James as Cinderella and Richard Madden as Prince Charming. If you haven't seen the movie, I advise you check it out!
Moving onto the nails, I wanted to do something that somewhat mimicked the colorings of Cinderella, so I used the new China Glaze Ever Glaze in Breath of Fresh Air (I will do a review on this later), and on my accent nail used Julep Zelda.

BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé | Watermelon/Moonstone

 Hello everyone! It is now spring 2015, and this year has flown by so fast. Just recently I've gotten into BECCA products and have fallen in love with the BECCA Blotting Powder Perfector and the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Moonstone. I also got a sample of their Ultimate-Coverage foundation, but I'm still playing with that.

I remember swatching these a couple months ago and not really finding anything great about them. However, recently, Ulta brought out a BECCA "Best of BECCA collection" set for their 21 Days of Beauty (unfortunately no longer available online but you may see it at an Ulta store) that retailed for $34.50 and contained a full-size beach tint shimmer soufflé, deluxe size shimmering skin perfector pressed, a deluxe size shimmering skin perfector, and a full size beach tint. 

The BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé is 0.20 ounces and retails for $27, and six shades are currently available. They can be found at Ulta and Sephora.com. Since the whole set I got at Ulta was $34.50 for two full size items and 2 deluxe size items, I went for it. And I'm so glad I did because this shimmer soufflé is SO gorgeous!

These Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés claim to be water-resistant and oil free, talc free and paraben free. Each pot is a combination of their top-selling beach tint mixed in with a shimmering skin perfector. The one I have, Watermelon/Moonstone mixes Watermelon beach tint and Moonstone shimmering skin perfector for a gorgeous coral red infused with pale gold.

 The formula has an air-whipped gel like, cushiony consistency that provides buildable color with some natural looking radiance. With this, you will have beautiful radiant skin, and not look oily at all. As you can see in the picture above, the colors do eventually blend together, and possibly later down the road, more of the pale gold will incorporate into the coral red color.

I applied it with my e.l.f. Stippling brush and it applied so flawlessly. I absolutely love the finish and how beautiful this coral red with pale gold is on me. I may check out more of them!

Have you tried any products from BECCA?

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash | Demo

Hey guys! I got a deluxe sample of the new Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash mascara. It comes out February 27, 2015 and can be purchased at Sephora, Ulta, and Benefit Cosmetics. This mascara retails for $24 and claims to give length, volume, curl, lasting power, ink black color, and lash conditioning ingredients. 
I personally love this mascara waaaayyyy better than Benefit They're Real. I wasn't too huge of a fan of that one. So if They're Real didn't really cut it for you either, try out this one! I most likely won't be purchasing the full size one as of yet. Depends on how the life of the deluxe sample goes. If I really like it after the sample, I will purchase it. If not, then my search for my perfect mascara will continue!

Three Steps for Soft Lips

It's so important to take care of your lips, no matter what season we are in. These three easy steps will keep your lips looking soft and healthy!

Step 1: Exfoliate
I like to use LUSH Mint Julep lip scrub or The Kiss (LE for Valentine's Day). You can also use a toothbrush in you are in a rush.
Step 2: Moisturize
I have two favorites right now: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask and Neosporin Overnight Renewal Therapy.
Step 3: Hydrate
Drink LOTS of water. Not only will it help your lips, but it will be beneficial to your skin as well!
