New Beginnings / January Highlights

Hi Honeybees! It has been a hot second since I have posted here on my blog. I always have good intentions of posting, but YouTube takes so much of my time already, that I tend to not allot any time for my blog. BUT this is a new year and with that comes new goals and aspirations. I am going to try and commit to writing more, and also posting more on all social media as well as my blog.

2015 has gotten off to a great start for me, and I feel truly blessed! Last month was especially exciting..

+ Reached 25,000 subscribers on YouTube!

+ Went to IMATS LA and got to see so many wonderful friends and subscribers.


+ Had my photo featured in ShowSmart Magazine (Feb/March Issue p.63)


+ Went to the Pitbull & Enrique Iglesias Concert front row & got to touch Enrique! I am blushing just thinking about it lol.


+ Last but definitely not least, I was offered a brand ambassador position with the incredible brand Cover FX! I am 1 of 14 ambassadors, and words can not express how honored I am to be apart of such an amazing team. I am a big fan of the brand itself (especially love that they are cruelty free and care about what they put in their products), but also I have been using their products for years now and I cant wait to start sharing all the new innovative products they will have coming out this year!! I have already posted my first review on their newest product to launch, the Cream Contour Kits! Each kit has 2 highlights and 2 contour shades. They come in 6 global shades based on undertone, so everyone can find their perfect contour. Better yet they are the same great formula as their super blendable Total Cover Cream Foundation. If you would like to see a full review and demo of how I apply my highlight and contour, watch the video bellow: 


I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your year!

Prestige Cosmetics: Total Intensity



Prestige Cosmetics is adding to their Total Intensity line, new products will be hitting shelves this month! I was lucky enough to be sent a few products from the line to review. 



True Metal Eyeshadows
"Remarkable high-pigment, yet creamy formula designed with naturally occurring metallic colorants to deliver the true metallic finish."


I was sent the shades Gilded and Bronze. Both are beautifully pigmented and look gorgeous on the top of cream shadows and alone. They are creamy and blend wonderfully. 

Color Rush Eyeshadows
"Breakthrough color-matrix eyeshadow technology that traps pigments and provides a controlled and even pigment release during application. The more you rub, the more pigment it releases and more coverage is achieved."


I was not as impressed by the quality of these shadows. The blue shade, Out of the Blue, went on pretty patchy and not as pigmented as I would expect from such a bright shade. The brown shade, On the Prowl, had better pigmentation but was not as creamy as the metal shadows. 

Swatches from Left to Right: Gilded, Bronze, On The Prowl, Out of the Blue


Total Wear Eyeshadow Crayon
"The ultimate party -proof eyeshadow. Remarkably lightweight, long wearing, transfer-free, sweat-proof and crease-proof."


Great wear and color payoff! However, I do always use a primer under any cream product like this, so they may have assisted in the wear. 

Swatches from Left to Right: Meteorite, Desert Delusion, Purple Rain
Liquid Liner in Stalker

Total Intensity Eye Makeup Remover
"Enriched with green tea leaf extract to render anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and soothing benefits."

So far I have not experience any irritation from this makeup remover. It is a bit greasy feeling, but really does remove my waterproof mascara. 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes!

Hourglass has done it again! Ambient Lighting Blush! Gorgeous vivid cheek colors fused with my beloved Ambient Lighting Powders. The effect is a gorgeous 'glow from within' blush that gives depth and dimension. There are six shades total in the collection, I currently own three. All three give such a radiant finish without it being overly glowy or glittery. They each enhance my complexion, and I always get compliments when I wear them on their own, or over the top of another blush. A must buy!

Dim Infusion, Radiant Magenta, Mood Exposure 



Swatches from Left to Right: Dim Infusion, Radiant Magenta, Mood Exposure
