The other night I got bored and was playing around with my NYX Love You So Mochi: Electric Pastels palette, which is one of my favorite shadow palettes. There is some fallout with this palette, but the colors are beautiful and well pigmented, which is why I love it so much. The colors also work very well together and blend nicely.
I did this look at night, so of course I didn’t have the benefit of natural light to truly capture it. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out though. After I do an eye look, sometimes I like to switch up the lips because it can really change the vibe of the look. The first lip color I started out with was NYX Cosmic Metals lip cream in shade Galactic. Then I switched to ColourPop Ultra Matte lip in shade Viper.
Which of these looks do you like the best? Make sure you let me know in the comments!

I was essentially just looking for some lip balms because I was almost out. The Jersey Shore Cosmetics balms are my absolute favorite, so I was going to buy some more of those. However, they are $10 a piece. I decided to look for some other balms where I could get more for my money. Not only did I find some new lip balms to try, but I ended up purchasing a few other items as well. I’ve now had a chance to try these out, so here are my thoughts.

This is my sixth VoxBox from Influenster, and I think this one might just be my favorite so far. I was so ecstatic when I received this! The packaging is wonderful, and it’s my favorite shade of pink! I know that how well a product works is more important than what it looks like, but having a product that is pretty to look at is a great bonus. I will give you the lowdown on the products I received in my box, how much it retails for, and my thoughts.

I got this Renew VoxBox last month from Influenster. I am really late getting this post up, but it arrived just a few days before I moved, so I was super busy doing last minute packing. Then of course I had to unpack and get settled, so I only recently tried out the products in this box within the past week.
I did not get any good photos of the box/products because I was dumb and decided to take the photos on my bed. It was later that I realized what a terrible idea that was. Kitty Cameron loves to lay on my bed, so his cat hair was pretty visible. I decided not to include the other photos for that reason.

I want to start by saying that this will be my last Ipsy glam bag post for at least three months. I’ve put my subscription on hold since I am supposed to be moving next month and I need to cut out some things to save money. I may end up canceling it for good, but I just put it on hold in the meantime since I haven’t actually decided what I want to do yet.
This is one of my favorite bag designs I’ve gotten from Ipsy thus far. I love the color of it, and the butterflies are really pretty.

I did a few pretty simple makeup looks this past week, all of which only took me about 5-10 minutes on average. I actually ended up really liking how they turned out, so I thought I would do a quick photo roundup of the looks. I’ve posted them on my instagram, so if you follow me there, you may have already seen them. I used a lot of the same products for these also. Make sure you let me know which one is your favorite in the comments!

Pastel looks are so much fun, and it’s the perfect time for one! It’s Easter, it’s Spring, and my once vibrant hair has also faded into a more pastel rose color. I love trying to get a little creative and use colors that I wouldn’t normally use in an everyday makeup look. Overall, I’m quite happy with this look. I really love how the colors just seem to blend really well together.
