Yes To Tomatoes


Skin care is an important part of my makeup routine. Without a clear clean face, my makeup would look blotchy and my skin would look dry no matter the cost. Face washes along with skin moisturizers go a long way in making sure my skin stays smooth and glowing for perfect makeup application. This product isn’t only for women. My husband uses this product regularly along with me. Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask helps in clearing up acne and blemishes as well as removing impurities from deep in the skin and pores. The instructions state to spread a generous amount of this product on your face while avoiding the eyes and mouth. After leaving the mud mask on for about 15-20 minutes, you simply rinse off all of the residues until you have a nice clean refreshing face. The biggest pro to this product is that it claims to be made out of 100% all natural ingredients. You know what is going on your face and you feel good about it!

Sephora Collection Eyeshadow Palette ~ Limited Edition


When it comes to my makeup, I try to keep it as simple as possible. I rarely go for colors that really stand out so eyeshadow palettes aren’t in my normal makeup repertoire. When I received this palette, the first thing that was very clear was that amount of colors available. One side of the palette caters to the more neutral tones that I am more drawn to. The other half caters to bolder colored tones for that pop of color type look. Apprehensive of this palette, I decided to jump in and see what the quality was like. I can tell you that this palette is really great! The eyeshadows go on smoothly and blend out so neatly. You can tell it is a high-quality product right away and it inspires me to experiment more with all of the colors now available to me. It also includes a really nice eyeshadow brush and two eyeliner pencils.

Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette


Cleaning your makeup brushes is an absolute must that should always be incorporated into a makeup routine. The product goes on your brushes and the brushes go on your face. No matter how clean you think you may be, having brushes fester for weeks without washings regularly can lead to bacteria build ups. Yucky stuff that you just don’t want to put on your face. I have been actually using this for several months to clean my Sephora Makeup Brush Set. This brush cleanser fits in the palm of my hand and allows me to have an easy grip to clean my brushes efficiently. The bumped ridges on the cleansing palette are designed to clean all different sized brushes. Just add any makeup cleansing liquid and scrub away. Soap and water work fine too but this palette is useful to really dig deep into the pores of the brush bristles. I have enjoyed this product and would highly recommend it.

City Color Cosmetics Contour Effects Palette


I have several contour palettes or bronzers and blushes that I use regularly. If you want to find a very affordable product but want to achieve the same look as those high-end items,  this contour palette does the trick. I have used this brand for a while and specifically use the contour and bronzer sections because they go well with my skin tone. My favorite part about this palette is that it’s in a powder form so it really allows you to be able to blend in effortlessly. It goes on smoothly for my skin and has been dubbed a favorite in my book.

Grande Lips Lip Plumper


I was always hesitant about the word “lip pumper”. My natural lips are already pouty so I have always avoided the lip plumper because I felt like it may have been redundant. I still feel this way about this type of product but after trying this for about two months, I really like it. There’s a hydrating lip plumper in this brand that helps me with dry lips, and a tingly minty feel to the lips that don’t feel like it burns like other ordinary plumps. It also doesn’t give me a swollen lip look so I apply it, leave it on for a minute or so, and then remove it before I apply my lip balm. I have enjoyed it so much that I have actually started to incorporate it into my everyday routine.

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Moisturizing Lip Balm


This one is a simple one for me. I have tried so many lip balms over the years and Burt’s Bees has always been the best product by far. I love everything about this brand. From it being a mostly natural product to the smell and longevity of its duration. It’s all a plus for me. If you generally have dry chapped lips, use some Burt’s Bees regularly and it will really help.

Wander Beauty Carryon Lip


The crayon lip. I love this product so much. I use the color Pink City and it looks like a more enhanced natural lip color. I am not generally a pink makeup kind of gal so this one really surprised me. It feels light weight and looks great. I wish it lasted longer like the ever popular liquid lipsticks but this is one of those products that I do not mind applying again and again. According to the brand, this crayon can also be used as a cheek application to be put in place of a blush. This line come is more rosy colors and has a dual purpose. I have only tried one color but it does peak my interest to try more of this brand!
