My Favorites Lately – Makeup, Clothes and More!

It has been months since my last favorites post, and there has been various items I have been wanting to share, over the span of the last few months; so I will be sharing them in this one post.  To hear me talk about each feel free to watch the video below!

tarte flush3

I won this Tarte power pigment crayon, flush, from an instagram giveaway. I have been in love since I received it. To me it looks like a pinky, berry, red. It doesn’t dry out my lips and I really like how it looks on me.

butter london jaded jack cream eye shadow

I received many lovely things from my friend, Honey, for Christmas; one of which was this Butter London cream eye shadow in Jaded Jack. It is an exquisite shade, and I like how it looks on my lids. It is soft, and creamy. When I apply it, it feels wonderful!!

colour pop partridge

When I experimented with my Butter London cream shadow and Colour Pop’s stunning peacock green and brown shadow, in Partridge (from their Not A Box Of Chocolate’s set), I was amazed!!!  I applied Partridge over Jaded Jack, and the result was so beautiful.  The two complimented each other so well, and really made my green hazel eyes stand out.  I love wearing these two together!

Here are swatches of Tarte’s Flush Crayon, Butter London’s Jaded Jack, and Partridge.

pacifica mexican cocoa

One of the fragrances I have been enjoying as of late is Pacifica’s Mexican Cocoa perfume, that I had purchased several months ago from Pacifica’s website.  It smells of spice to me.  The notes for this fragrance are Mexican Chocolate, Cinnamon, Almond, Nutmeg, and Vanilla.  To read more about this fragrance and my thoughts, check out my review here.

marula oil

After I work my Marula oil (that I had won in an Ipsy glambag challenge) into my legs, after I have shaved, my legs feel so luxuriously soft!!  This oil is just wonderful, and I really enjoy using it.

softlips cube

On my instagram, I posted a small drugstore haul, a little over two weeks ago.  In that haul, was the softlips cube.  Since then, I have used up about half of it.  It tastes and smells so fruity, and feels smooth on my lips.  I will definitely be repurchasing this lip balm when I run out.

roses cross double ring

My mother-in-law said this cross double ring reminded her of me, when she gave it to me for Christmas.  I do love it! It’s just darling! I love roses and actually did not have a double ring before now.  I have seen them around, but just hadn’t picked one up yet.  This is lovely and a good fit for me.

off shoulder zulily

This off-shoulder grey top, I had ordered a while back from Zulily, has become a go to of mine. It is so warm and comfortable.  I really would like to get more in other colors eventually.

black jeanez ripped jeanez

About a month or two ago, I saw an infomercial on tv for a brand called Jeaneez.  They sell leggings with jean print on them. I saw Jeaneez had a buy one get two deal so I decided to make a purchase.  All three I enjoy wearing, but the black and the “ripped” printed ones are my favorites.

Cool Blues Makeup

Some weeks past, I ran into our neighbor lady and she saw my makeup and had asked if I had done a tutorial.  That day, I was just playing with some new Colour Pop shadows I had purchased.  I told her no, I had not.

I have been wanting to do something similar to share with everyone, as I also liked how it turned out.  To watch me create this icy, cool, blues makeup look, please feel free to watch the video below!

I think my favorite part in this look is how the Colour Pop’s eye shadow, Sugar, reflects and brightens off of Rex.  I really like how it all came together!

What kind of makeup looks to you like to put together? Feel free to comment with your thoughts!!

Colour Pop Haul – Not A Box of Chocolates Holiday Set

colourpop 3 Since this past summer, I have been most curious about the Colour Pop shadows upon first hearing about them on youtube.  Since then, my friend Honey from youtube, has done various posts about them, showcasing beautiful swatches and her thoughts.  The shades look gorgeous in her photos, and the soft creamy, texture she raved about had me very intrigued.

   A few weeks ago, a fellow youtuber, Mandy and I were discussing this brand.  She followed up our conversation and provided me a link, depicting some new holiday collections that were recently released.  One of the collections caught my eye, Not A Box of Chocolates, and I decided to purchase them.  colourpop 4

  For those who are reading this and do not already know, Colour Pop is a cosmetics company located here in the United States, their shadows are five dollars each (as are their lippie stixs and pencils), and animal cruelty free. Their products are sold on their website.

To watch my youtube video for this haul, click on the video below.  I will also be providing pictures of the shadows and swatches underneath the clip.

The texture of these shadows are so soft!! I am truly looking forward to playing with these shadows as well as others from a second order, I made not too long after this one.  This set is limited edition, so if any of my readers want to purchase it, at some point it will no longer be sold.

Have you tried Colour Pop? If so what are your favorite products from them? If not, what new products have you purchased or interested in?
