MAC Viva Glam: Miley + Demo

Purchased.
As soon as I saw Miley's Viva Glam shade I knew I had to have it! I love this color! It's beyond beautiful! Check out my video to see how lovely this shade really is! Also listen in to hear about wear time, and the feel!

Check out my Live Demo of MAC's Viva Glam Miley lipstick: 


I have to say this lipstick applies so smooth! Not tugging here! It lasts about 4 to 5 hours with light eating and drinking. I have to say it stains your lips - which I LOVE! It helps it last a bit longer between touch ups.

 I have to say this is an extremely hard lipstick to capture it's true color! I did both flash and no flash to help you get a better idea of how it looks. I also included lip swatches so you can truly see how it looks on my skin tone. I love this creme finish with just a slight shine to it. Not glitter - thank god!

I don't think I said it enough in the video but this is the most perfect summer pink shade! I'm warning you now there will be tons of photos of this lipstick in the summer!! 

A note to make I would not wear this with heavy eye makeup nor a blush. This lipstick is very busy.

WEN Hair Care Range Overview + Video Review

I've done a lot of reviews of Wen over the years. Everyone who reads my blog knows I love me some Wen cleansing conditioners. After going from blood red hair to bleach blonde well, it was going to take the big guns to save my poor fried and fragile hair.
2014 wen fall scent, damaged hair wen, fine hair wen, fine hair wen, wen cleansing conditioner, wen range overview, Wen 6 13, wen bamboo green tea reivew, gluten free cleansing conditioner

I can not praise Wen enough it truly has made my hair become healthy again and grow. Chaz Dean the creator is also a very lovely man. His products never test on animals. All his products use very natural oils and good for you products.

I will also be the first to a admit Wen is expensive as hell. I really have to budget it into my spending. That being said it you can only get one product I would say spend it on the Cleansing Conditioners. They are the key to lovely hair.

I have used the styling cremes, hair oils, and replenishing mists. I do love them all but they're so expensive for me. I can only afford them when they come in sets and TSV on QVC.
Below is my YouTube overview of the WEN Range:


Check out my other Wen review to find the best pick for you! 
Fall Apple Spice  Cleansing Conditioner- This has my review, Before and After photos. My Friend's Before and After photos as well.


So in a nutshell I 100% suggest giving WEN a try! Just remember don't skimp. You won't see results if you don't properly use Wen. I can't tell you how often I notice people who say they don't like Wen they don't use the proper amount for their hair.  Now I do understand even using the proper amount you might still hate it, and that's fine.

Sephora VIB member Finally!

I literally made a purchase on December 30th of $65 just to push me over the edge to become a Sephora V.I.B. member! Which by the way is an awesome perk! In my welcome pack down below I got a free makeover, 10% off my next purchase and free shipping coupons! How cool is that?!
Sephora, Sephora vib member, sephora vib perks, sephora haul, clinique superprimer dullness, lacome dramtic duo review, mascara primer,
I bought the Clinique Superprimer Face Primer colour corrects dullness - What a mouth full! I've been trying to find a brightening primer and I know clinique usually doesn't break me out so I wanted to give this a try!

I also have been looking for a good eye lash primer to make my lashes more impressive without falsies! I read a lot of the Sephora reviews on the Lancôme Dramatic Duo mascara and primer duo so I decided to give it a whirl! So far so good with this one! I love it! Review coming soon!

I was only $3 away from making the $68 I needed to become a V.I.B. so I picked up 3 of the Sephora twist tie hair bands. That I use all the time.

I also picked up a sample of the Tarte BB primer in Fair with a coupon code. I can't wait to compare the two primers I got!

All in All I have to say this was a great haul! I can't wait to grab all the goodies on my Wishlist now that I have a 10% off coupon to use! Yay!! Did you ladies make any last minute Sephora hauls to push you over? Anyone have primer suggestions for brightening?

What I got for Christmas/My Birthday!

As part of my 2015 goals is to actually blog on more of the items I get, even if it's a bit late! Better late than never right!! 

I have to say I am truly humbled by how much love is within my family, and soon to be family. Since my birthday is December 25th it can be hard sometimes to feel special on such a holiday, yet my family makes it feel like it's my birthday not Christmas. Which is such a special feeling. I also have to say that I did get everything I was hopping for and more this year! The only thing that was missing was a new pair of running shoes but I'll be picking up a new pair myself soon!

For Christmas my big beauty wish was to get that Tarte kit that was a TSV on QVC, which my Fiancé's mom actually bought me for Christmas!! This kit is just a beautiful sight to look at! I mean look at the gold packaging! It's perfect! As well as all the goodies in the boxes! 


I also got a lot of mini beauty goodies in my stocking from my fiancé!! Some nail art goodies and this super cute brush set! 



Which I am beyond thrilled with how soft the bristles are!  

My mom got me the Hair Dryer that I've been eyeing for months!! Which I love by the way! I dry my hair on the cool setting so I don't fry it! Then style on the warm setting! 


Things not pictured are actually my Birthday gifts. I got a new Cannon PowerShot camera! As you can tell from the photo's the quality is astounding! I also got a new LED Gel light to cure my gel manicures! It fights my full hand and has a timer! I'm in love!!

Review for the LED light coming super soon!! I had a truly amazing Christmas/Birthday thanks to my family and friends! I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas and a great New Year! 

What was your favorite Christmas gift this year??

Hello 2015 and Thanks for a great 2014!!

I have to admit I've been a bad blogger lately. I have been neglecting my blog which makes me super sad, but life gets busy so what can you do.

I want to thank everyone who continues to read my blog and comments on my posts. It keeps me going with this blog! It also makes me feel less like I'm talking to a wall!

I grew a lot with my blog, even if I ended up lagging in the last few months. Lots of exciting things happened this year for me! This year I'm revving up to finish my last semester of college! I might not graduate with the highest GPA, so far just a 2.9 but who else can say they held down two different jobs (more than a 40 hour week) and college at the same time? Not many, and I'm damn proud of myself. Honestly I feel like I would have done a lot better if I wasn't forced to take any Calc or Stat classes. Those Math class just killed my GPA!! 

I have to say I am beyond happy and blessed to have found the one I want to spend the rest of my life with. Mr. J and I got engaged back in July. It was an extremely private moment and I will cherish it for the rest of my life. I hope 2015 is just as good to us as 2014 was!

I have just a few goals this 2015, and pretty attainable in my eyes. 

Goals for 2015

  • Shed 10 minutes off my 3k Mud Run time (current time is 50 minutes) 
  • Find a Big Girl job once I graduate college, so I can finally achieve my dream of only having 1 job! 
  • Upload 4 videos a month on my youtube Channel - I got a new camera for Christmas!! - here
  • Actually Review all the products I use! 
  • Save more money! 
  • Do MUA Jobs 
  • Reach my Goal weight of 150 pounds (CW:187lbs)
I know that's a pretty long Goal list for 2015 but all totally achievable in my books, I hope! What are everyone else's goals?
