BEAUTE ESSENTIELLE - COCONUT WATER MAKEUP REMOVING FACIAL CLEANSING WIPES (HYDRATE)!!! I found these Makeup remover wipes at one of my fav stores, Tj Maxx! They always have the coolest beauty products, Makeup & beauty tools! The Beaute Essentielle - Coconut Water Makeup Removing Facial Cleansing Wipes (Hydrate) were $3.99 for 60 wipes (not band huh?!?) They come in a really pretty package (similar to what baby wipes come housed in) & the packaging has a plastic area that pops up where you can easily pull your wipes out of the package. Now I have extremely sensitive skin so I have to be very careful what I use on my skin & these wipes are great because they have NOT broken me out or messed w/my skin at all. In fact these wipes are very hydrating! They're rather large, which is great so you don't need "as many" wipes to remove your makeup. They're soft (they don't feel cheap-y like the makeup wipes that are sold at most dollar stores.) These wipes are nice & thick & they can withstand tugging & rubbing makeup off of your face, they don't rip or tear like cheap makeup wipes. THE SMELL - They smell yummy! Like Coconuts (I love anything that smells like coconuts!) It's a fav scent of mine! & it reminds me of Summers at the beaches in Cali, going on vacation or just summertime in general! These really do smell wonderful! Honestly they're great makeup wipes & if you see them at Tj Max, don't hesitate - buy em! You won't revert it 😉😘 I hope you enjoyed this review of The Beaute Essentielle - Coconut Water Makeup Removing Facial Cleansing Wipes (Hydrate!) Stay tuned for more reviews & everything & anything makeup & beauty!!!

REAL TECHNIQUES - MIRACLE COMPLEXION SPONGE! I know that I've reviewed the Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge before (it was a while back) but this beauty sponge STILL continues to be my favorite beauty blending sponge (& trust me I've tried them all, INCLUDING the Beauty blender.) The Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge is $6.99 a pop, it's highly affordable & that's definitely a plus, especially compared to the Beauty Blender which is $20.00 a pop!!! Let's take a look at what Real Technique's has to say about the Miracle Complexion Sponge on Ulta's online website - "It's a 3-in-1 multi-functional makeup sponge by Real Techniques. The rounded side blends larger areas of the face. The precision tip covers blemishes/imperfections & the flat edge contours around the eyes & the nose, leaving you with a complexion that's smooth, enhanced & gorgeous! Optimize your beauty routine with this 3-in-1 multi-functional sponge from Real Techniques." Let's talk about packaging - The Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge comes packaged in a hard plastic transparent box (just like the other Real Techniques makeup brushes.) It has a small plastic holder on which the sponge rests. EVERYONE knows that the Beauty blender took the Makeup & Beauty world by STORM; however, because it's $20 a pop, the price did deter quite a few people from actually buying it. So when Real Techniques came out w/the Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge, I thought to myself "Why not just try it, it's affordable & who knows you may like it!" To be honest I was never really into makeup sponges UNTIL I picked up the beauty blender, so finding a cheaper alternative was definitely cool with me, because $20 a pop gets a tad expensive after a while. Let's talk about the color of the sponge! The sponge is bright orange in color & it's shaped similar to the beauty blender except for the fact that Samantha has given it a cut providing it with a flat surface as well which allows for smooth application over larger areas more quickly (refer to the pics because its difficult to explain the shape in words.) The sponge can be used for: •Foundations (all types – liquid, cream or powder.)

URBAN DECAY - ALL NIGHTER FOUNDATION (IN SHADE 3.25!) Up until about a week or 2 ago I was using the 'Kat Von D - Lock it foundation.' Which is a foundation that I really do love. I like medium - full coverage & the Kat Von D - Lock it foundation definitely gives you full coverage. But I wanted a change for the summertime. A foundation that gives full coverage but isn't as thick as the Kat Von D foundation & that just happened to be the 'Urban Decay - All Nighter Foundation!' The Urban Decay - All Nighter Foundation is $40.00 a pop for 1.0 oz of product. Let's read what Urban Decay has to say about their All Nighter Foundation on Ulta's online website - "All Nighter Liquid Foundation by Urban Decay provides full coverage with a modern matte finish that never looks overdone. Get all-night wear & a blown-out effect you never thought was possible for a flawless-looking complexion that looks amazing & stays that way. Perfect for all-night affairs & other scandalous activities, this revolutionary formula is also comfortable enough to wear every day. While Naked Skin complexion products are demi-matte, All Nighter Liquid Foundation is completely matte - but never flat (& it's oil-free!) Urban Decay loaded this formula with an insane amount of pigment (about three times as much as Naked Skin Liquid Makeup) so a little goes a long way. There's no need to build coverage or apply multiple layers. This waterproof, paraben-free formula diffuses light to blur flaws for beautifully perfected skin as it mattifies & absorbs oil to reduce the appearance of shine. With a wide range of meticulously calibrated shades that match UD's existing Naked Skin Liquid Makeup shades, it's easy to find your perfect match. All Nighter Liquid Foundation comes in a sleek, edgy bottle that has a luxurious, highly metallized gunmetal effect with asymmetric cutouts. As cool as it looks, it's also practical; the shade is clearly visible, but the bottle never looks messy. It's also equipped with an airless pump - so it's easy to get out every last bit of product." What a brand description huh?!?! I bought the Urban Decay - All Nighter Foundation in shade '3.25,' so that's the shade that I'll be

URBAN DECAY - NAKED BASICS PALETTE! I'm pretty sure that I've done a review on the 'Urban decay - Naked Basics Palette' in the past (like wayyy back in the day.) But since it's now one of my most favorite & most used eyeshadow palettes, I'm going to review it again (after using this palette for the past 5 years I have a lot to say about it 😉) The Urban decay - Naked Basics Palette is $29.00 a pop for 6 eyeshadows (& each eyeshadow pan contains 0.05 oz each of product.) Let's read what Urban Decay has to say about the Urban decay - Naked Basics Palette - "Richer than other mattes, the color goes on with a smooth, luxe finish (never chalky or powdery.) There's even one demi-matte shade, Venus, which has the tiniest touch of satin - perfect for highlighting & adding dimension. While this palette is small, Urban Decay loaded it with full-size shadow pans, just like their other Naked palettes. Every shade features their Pigment Infusion System, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment & gives the formula its glide. The proprietary blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the eye shadow formula. What does all that mean? Insane color payout. Color that stays on your lids. Sparkle that doesn't fall. And velvety, suede-like smoothness & blendability. It all comes in a sleek compact (embossed with a pretty, metallic "NAKED" on the front) that has a slight sheen & a suede-like feel that practically begs to be touched. (Hello... how gorgeous will THAT look coming out of your bag?!?!?) Best of all, the slim design is perfect for travel - so you'll never have to be without these must-have shades." I absolutely love this eyeshadow palette! The Urban decay - Naked Basics Palette is a matte palette that contains neutral shades. This palette is designed to compliment all of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. Again, the Naked Basics palette includes 6 FULL-SIZED shadows with four new shades that include: •Venus: a soft off-white demi-matte color. Venus is a white-shimmery creamy-white shade. It's definitely not a full-on frost color, it doesn't have that frosty finish (thankfully, Lol.) It wore more than a satin finish on me though. When I used this on my

EVIAN - NATURAL MINERAL WATER (BRUMISATEUR) FACIAL SPRAY! If you know me than you know that I love trying new beauty products & I'll usually try anything (at least once, lol.) You may be asking yourself "Why does she need Evian - Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray?!? What is it?!?! Well... It's pretty much what it sounds like - Canned water. To be more specific, it's canned water with a little spray top (similar to a hairspray can.) that is used to hydrate & refresh your skin. SOO, Who actually needs water in a spray can?!?! I DO! I DO! & I'll explain why down below. I usually buy the 2 pack of the Evian - Natural Mineral Water (Brumisateur) Facial Spray, they cost $15.00 a pop & you get 1.07 oz of water per can. They also sell a couple other sizes. There's the 3 pack, that cost's $21.00 a pop & you get 1.07 oz of water per can. There's the 5.0 oz sized can & it cost's $12.50 & than there's the 10.1 oz spray & it cost's $18.00. Let's talk about what Evian has to say about their Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray on Ulta's website - "Evian's spray is the perfect size for convenient, portable, non-leaking, pure water cleansing. Evian also removes harmful ocean water, pool water chlorine, & perspiration salt. Evian water contains very few mineral salts & has a mineral content that is primarily calcium & magnesium in balanced proportions. Every drop of Evian is packaged at the source in Evian-les-bains, France in a state-of-the-art facility. Each canister is leakproof & sealed & therefore, cannot be contaminated. You can feel confident keeping one in your purse, sport bag or diaper bag." SOO what is it really?!?! It's a hydrating facial spray that delivers powered micro-droplets of pure evian natural spring water in a leak-proof canister. What is it formulated to do?!? With its powerful micro-droplet mist, evian Brumisateur hydrates, tones, & refreshes skin throughout the day. It's a favorite of skin care professionals, hypo-allergenic evian Facial Spray with a neutral 7.2 pH is compatible with all skin types & it enhances all skin care regimes. Spray a light mist right over makeup to revive color throughout the day. It can also help remove perspiration, ocean salt

FIRST AID BEAUTY - ULTRA REPAIR HYDRATING SERUM! This is a product that I've used for about 8 months now & I absolutely love it - it's definitely a MUST HAVE holy-grail product of mine, I don't know what I'd do without it! It's a permanent fixture in my skin-care prepping & beauty regimen now. I originally bought the 'First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum' at Sephora, but they sell it at Ulta as well. The First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum is $36.00 a pop & it contains 1.0 oz of product. Let's say what First Aid Beauty has to say about their 'Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum,' this is the description that's on Ulta's online website - "First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum is a water-based gel absorbs immediately into the skin leaving behind an invisible shield that helps to seal in hydration. Its lightweight texture makes it perfect for layering under your favorite A.M. and P.M. moisturizers. Hyaluronic acid-a moisture-locking agent-helps hydrate, plump & nourish. Anti-aging peptides help minimize the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, while collagen helps skin appear more plump & replenished with an improved-looking texture. Colloidal oatmeal, along with aloe leaf juice, help calm & soothe irritated skin for an allover healthy-looking & feeling complexion." The directions for use with the First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum is - "Apply one-to-two pumps of serum morning &/or evening after cleansing the face, neck & chest. Wait until completely absorbed before following with moisturizer." I don't necessarily use it that way, I usually wash my face (let dry) than I apply the First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum before I apply my 'Makeup Forever Hydrating primer.' So I actually use this product as my moisturizer & it honestly works better than ANY moisturizer I've ever used.

TARTE - MANEATER LIQUID EYELINER IN 'BLACK!' When I was browsing through Ulta a cpl. weeks ago & spotted the adorable packaging of the Tarte - Maneater line, I picked up not only the Maneater mascara but the Tarte - Maneater liquid eyeliner in 'black' as well. I've been on the search for the PERFECT liquid eyeliner for years, up until now I was using the Revlon - colorstay Liquid Eye Pen (it's a great liquid eyeliner, but it seems like the actual product dries out to fast. I have to buy a new one every 3 weeks.) So I figured I'd try this one out. The Tarte - Maneater liquid eyeliner in 'black' is $20.00 a pop & it contains 0.035 oz of product. Let's take a look at Tarte's description of the Maneater liquid eyeliner on Ulta's website - "This vegan, quick-drying liquid eyeliner features intense black, lash-enhancing pigment spheres & a waterproof formula to ensure tonight's eyeliner won't turn into tomorrow's smoky eye. The micro brush tip glides on smoothly to create precise definition or drama where you want it & moves with the contours of your lashline for the perfect, one-swipe application. You can use it to sculpt & fill in spaces between lashes for an ultra-black boost in volume or extend it out to a sexy #maneater wing." Now let's take a look at the Tarte's claims of the Maneater liquid eyeliner - It's Vegan, Has the Tarte 12-hour power, it's Waterproof, it's Ophthalmologist tested, it's Safe for contact lens wearers & it's Dermatologist tested. I'm liking the claims & the fact that it is Ophthalmologist tested, Safe for contact lens wearers & it's Dermatologist tested (because I wear contacts & I have sensitive skin!) This liquid eyeliner is FANTASTIC! It's extremely long-lasting (it doesn't budge for at least UP TO 12 hours) but when I've worn it, it's lasted all day long & until I wash it off. The Tarte - Maneater liquid eyeliner has a precise brush-like applicator (not a felt-tip) which allows you to create a classic cat eye liner, a bold winged liner or even bold dots in only seconds!!! I really like the brush tip, it glides gently over the skin & it moves more freely than a felt tip. What's even more awesome than that is that the

TARTE - MANEATER VOLUPTUOUS MASCARA IN 'BLACK!' I was browsing through Ulta a cpl. weeks ago & I spotted the adorable packaging of the Tarte - Maneater Voluptuous mascara in black (I'm pretty sure that it's exclusively sold at Ulta.) It caught my eye, so I checked it out & thought "I mine as well try it!" I've been using the Benefit - They're real mascara & I like it, but I wanted to try something new. The Benefit - They're real mascara is nice, but I'm not gonna lie, it's a bitch to remove & sometimes it just clumps up & I don't like that. It's almost to heavy... SOO, let's talk about Tarte's - Maneater Voluptuous mascara (in black.) Tarte's - Maneater Voluptuous mascara is $23.00 a pop & it contains 0.3 oz of product. Tarte's description of the new mascara on Ulta's website is this - "Dress your lashes like you style your hair with this lengthening, curling & volumizing mascara. With a soft-flex brush & lightweight triple-black formula, it lifts lashes at the root, styles & fans them out to create amped-up fluttery fullness with no flaking or clumping. The custom molded brush features hundreds of flexible bristles to curl & coat lashes with even, intense pigment for 23x more volume powered by lash-strengthening jojoba & carnauba wax." The "claims" of Tarte's new Maneater Voluptuous mascara are: Slick, triple-black mascara, delivers 23x increase in lash volume in just two coats, soft bristle, flexible brush, creates curvaceous - fanned out lashes, the formula is infused with jojoba & it conditions, strengthens & protects lashes. This new(er) mascara is ALSO "Ophthalmologist tested. Safe for contact lens wearers & Dermatologist tested." ALL THAT in one mascara, really?!? That's pretty nifty if ya ask me! I'm a fan of Tarte cosmetics, although they're one of the cosmetic brands that I own the least amount of products (I'm not really sure why, because I do like their products.) The packaging is really cute, it's a hold tube covered in leopard print (everyone knows that I LOVE leopard print!) It feels like sturdy & stable tube/packaging that will hold up when being thrown around in a makeup bag or purse. Let's talk about the brush-tip of this mascara wand. The

BUXOM - FULL ON LIP POLISH IN 'DOLLY!' I received a deluxe sample of the Buxom - Full On Lip Polish in 'Dolly' the last time I shopped at Ulta, so I thought "Eh! I mine as well review it!" So that's what I'm gonna do 😝 The Buxom Full On Lip Polish in Dolly deluxe sample is actually a good sized sample, it contains 1.5 ml / 0.05 fl. oz. of product. Nice sized sample huh?!? Let's hear what Buxom has to say about their Full On Lip Polish's on Ulta's website - "A bestselling, plumping lip gloss with shimmering, tingling shine. Plump up the volume with this bestselling sheer, shimmering lip polish that makes lips look fuller & more voluptuous in 100 plumping babe shades. Vitamins A & E help keep lips soft, smooth & protected with a refreshing tingling sensation that you won't be able to get enough of." The full sized Buxom - Full On Lip Polish in 'Dolly' is $20.00 a pop & it contains 0.15 oz of product. 'Dolly' is described as a "shimmering sultry mauve." I'd describe it as a sheer medium, pinky-plum with fine gold shimmer. The formula is supposed to be a "sheer, shimmering, hydrating gloss with a no-tingle plumping effect" & that's exactly what it is (except it definitely tingles while it plumps your lips) it has sheer color payoff, yet a noticeable color payoff & a shimmer/glitter finish. Your natural lip color will peak through a bit, but the color is still gorgeous-sheerness! The gold shimmer that you see in the tube translates to a really pretty shine on your mouth. It feels smooth, tingly & cooling on the lips, almost to the point where your lips feel a little numb 😉 (so if you don't like lip plumping products, this may not be the lipgloss for you.) I'd say that the formula is non-sticky, it's hydrating & it feels nice & smooth on the lips. The consistency is lightweight, comfortable to wear & it doesn't settle into all the lip lines. This color is just enough to play up any natural Pinky hue in the lips, leaving them shiny & luscious looking. Dolly is definitely a "your-lips-but-better" color! I love it! Again the formula of this gloss isn't sticky. Again... beware - there's an actual plumping effect in this gloss, so your lips will tingle long after

MAKEUP REVOLUTION - VIVID BAKED HIGHLIGHTER IN: 'GOLDEN LIGHTS!' I thought I'd throw this one in there for good measure, it is one of my FAV & most used highlighters (especially during the 2017 winter months.) The Revolution - Vivid Baked Highlighters In 'Golden Lights' is actually the very 1'st highlighter by Makeup Revolution that I ever bought about 7 months ago. I was so excited to see the Makeup Revolution brand being sold at Ulta, because I had seen a review on YouTube of the Revolution - Vivid Baked Highlighters 'Golden Lights' & I fell in love after watching that review & I wanted to buy it SOO very bad, but it was a UK brand & not easily acquired. So the 1'st thing I did when I seen the Makeup Revolution display at Ulta is grab this bad boy! The Revolution - Vivid Baked Highlighters in 'Golden Lights' (& the whole line of vivid baked highlighters) are $6.00 a pop & they contain 0.26 oz / 7.5 grams of product. I remember being a tad blown away at the size of the highlighter for only $6 - it's definitely a steal! Makeup Revolution has this to say on the Ulta website about the Revolution's Vivid Baked Highlighters in 'Golden Lights' - "Create the beautiful radiant look with Makeup Revolution's Vivid Baked Highlighters - a light powder that can be used to define & highlight the key areas of the face. Golden Lights: You're golden, as long as you have this powder on your side. With a yellow-gold sheen, this highlighter is ideal for medium to deep skin tones." There's 5 shades in the Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter line, they consist of: Golden lights, Radiant lights, Peach lights, Rose Gold lights & Matte lights. Again, I'll be reviewing 'Golden Lights' today. 'Golden Lights' is a pale yel­low shade - more of a White gold with yellow gold shimmering reflects. It does look great on warmer skin tones, but this shade will work with a plethora of skin tones. It gives a gorgeous golden glow & luminescence to the skin (This one is definitely perfect for any skin tone. It gives the most amazing & beautiful glow!) Honestly, Revolution's - Vivid Baked Highlighters in 'Golden Lights' has a lovely pearlescent-like reflective fin­ish that catches the light just right.

BECCA - SHIMMERING SKIN PERFECTER IN 'OPAL!' I received the Becca - Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in 'Opal' as a sample last time I went shopping at Ulta, so I thought in sticking w/the theme of reviewing highlighters this week, that I'd review this as well (lol.) The Becca - Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in 'Opal' contains 1.7 oz of product & the regular sized product is priced at $41.00. Becca describes it as - "Achieve a subtle luminosity. This formula features ultrafine light-reflecting pearls that melt into your skin for polished, natural-looking radiance. Water-light & sheer, it has a prismatic effect that allows it to adjust in any light, so your refined glow is never lost. This product has been dermatologically tested." The Becca -Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in 'Opal' is described as a "golden opal pearl." I'd describe it more as a soft, light-medium gold with warmer undertones & a soft, golden shimmer. I'd also describe this product as a sheer cream-liquid that (when applied properly) gives a softer & more natural glow & luminescence to the skin. It has a "water-light" texture to it (a little goes a long way - trust me! I learned this the hard way when swatching it for this review! lol.) I'll be honest here, I've never been a huge fan of liquid highlighters (creams & powders most definitely) but liquid highlighters just aren't my thing, but just because I'm not a fan doesn't make this product not a great product. I do think it's a nice liquid highlighter, just not for me. Let's talk about the pro's of a liquid highlighter. Liquid highlighters are a great option for someone who likes a more multi-type task highlighter, they're great for someone who likes a more sheer/subtle glow to their skin, because when applied they tend to sheer out as you blend them. Even though a little goes a long way with the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid's - the formula is designed to be a tad more subtle than let's say cream & powder highlighters. I'd say that this liquid highlighter is meant to be applied using a light hand & using minimal product. The cool thing about liquid highlighters is that they can be mixed in with other products, such as: liquid
