Humble Beauty Opinion #57 :: Aug 2018

Last Saturday of the month = my monthly offering of my humblest beauty opinions!  
Let's start with my monthly subscriptions.

This month Ipsy was a pretty good one:
I like the Pixi blush, love the Ouai Volume Spray, haven't tried the Coola BB+ cream yet, 
the bang beauty quad is pretty nice, packaging is a little weird 
so I popped some magnets on the back and put it in my Z- Palettes. 
I was excited to try the Make Up For Ever pencil but my god is this HARD, I hate it. 
These types of pencils hurt! 

Also in this month's Ipsy I redeemed some points 
& got a little CrabTree & Evelyn "Gardeners Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy", 
love this stuff and with winter coming, Imma need some moisture!

I am also happy with this month's Sephora Play bag!
I needed a brow gel so I am happy to have the Anastasia Beverly Hills one- this stuff is very strong, I am having issues getting just a little bit on the brows. 
Otherwise my brows are so stiff and I end up looking like 😟

I already know I love the Hoola bronzer and the Living Proof styling cream,
the Make Up Forever lipstick in C211 is so smooth and such a pretty color! 
Still have to try the other products:

Since I have been a subscriber for 6 months, apparently I get a free custom makeover,
I am kinda curious to try this service, has anyone tried it & what did you think?!

Also this week is the BeautyInsider Appreciation Event at Sephora:

I picked up two skin care products from Trader Joe's this month,
Rose Water Facial Toner & Jojoba Oil.
The Rose Water Facial Toner is new to me but I am LOVING it! 
So refreshing and smells wonderful!
I already know I love the Jojoba Oil- I use this after taking my makeup off at night 
and have really enjoyed how it makes my skin feel/look.

I mentioned last month that I picked up the Kathleen Lights x ColourPop The Zodiac Palette,
and OMG. 
It is so good, I am obsessed. 
I have created so many looks with it and find myself using it daily!
& the "Scorpio Moon" lipstick is AMAZING. 
Definitely one of my all time favorite lipsticks, 
I want to get the other color from the collection, Whats Your Sign, ASAP!

Which leads me to my...

With the change of the release date of the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection
I knew the timing wouldn't be right for me to drop $50 on more palettes, 
so I missed the first release.
I would like to pick it up in the rerelease on Tuesday Aug 28th, 
but we will see if I end up pulling the trigger...

I mean these looks on morphebrushes on Instagram are AMAZING 
from angelabright on Instagram, I would love to try and recreate each one! 

 Jaclyn Hill x Morphe is also releasing a huge brush collection next week,
I am currently satisfied with my brush collection,
 so I don't think I will be picking up any of these, 
but the promo is SO BEAUTIFUL!

In other YouTube makeup news,
I am so excited for EmilyNoel83 & her Makeup Revolution collaboration! 
I think I might be picking up "The Wants" later today at Ulta
it looks so pretty and fun! 

Trendmood1 also posted on Instagram a look at the latest collab between 
Ofra Cosmetics x NikkieTutorials, this highlight is called "Space Baby" 
& this looks exactly like the kind of highlight I LOVE! 

One of my first and favorite blue duo chrome highlighters was the "Daydream" from LoveLuxeBeauty, it broke on vacation and I was so sad. 
Then it was discontinued / reformulated but has apparently recently been re-released.
"Icing on the cake" also looks amazing! 
May be time to place an order on LoveLuxeBeauty:

I feel like Wet n Wild posts a new collection like every week, 
this one is Fire Dragon Vs Ice Dragon 
{very Game of Thrones inspired}
Out of the whole collection, I want to try the teal and blue duo chrome highlights:
"Winter Falls in LA" & "Halo Walkers"

& that purple shade in the "Mythical Creatures" palette looks awesome too!

Fell in love with this "Satellite" pigment in this look by makeupbyanaiz on Instagram

Also loving/wanting these two shades from Makeup Geek:

& Vivid Pigment Singles, 
now I am thinking about getting that "Lemon Drop" shade from Coloured Raine
what a beautiful yellow! 

 If I got all the single shadows that are on my wishlist, 
I think I need this MASSIVE palette from Give Me Glow Cosmetics:

Colourpop Cosmetics also released new "Jelly Much" shadows & they look fun!
{blogged/worn HERE!}
& the "Half Moon" shade may be a much cheaper alternative!

I spotted these Odeme polishes in JCrew and I love the shape of these bottles and these colors, 
I wonder if they are any good?!

This month's empties, what I used up, loved, hated 
& all my humble opinions in between:
beauty empties: Maybelline Age Rewind in "Light"- I love and miss this stuff, need a new one ASAP / GlamGlow "Glowstarter" Illuminating Moisturizer- I liked this, with the exception of the extremely sweet smell that seems to linger too long, I ended up adding it to my foundation / Smashbox "Photo Finish Lid Primer" in "Light"- I did not like this stuff, I don't think it worked and I could hardly get any out of the packaging / be a bombshell "french kiss" I like this pink chapstick but the top kept falling off which resulted in it being gross and getting all over everything / Cetaphil "Gentle Skin Cleansing Clothes"- these were okay, not a favorite but a good travel size / Ipsy bag- I LOVED this pattern and bag for carrying all my phone chargers, external batteries, etc. I am so sad that the snap broke apart and it has faded over time, time to let her go... 

bath empties: Scentsy "Sea Salt & Avocado" bar- I like this scent a lot, need to get more! / SW Basics Cream- I have had this FOREVER, this is super moisturizing but can sometimes be a little oily, I found that it was great for healing tattoos! / Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter- I love this lotion, smells wonderful and super moisturizing! Have re-purchased many times! / beauty360 from CVS "Extra Dry Skin Moisturizing Lotion"- I like this lotion, smells a little sweeter than the other ones I've used but I like it / Scotch "Jumbo Lint Roller"- any dog moms know these are completely necessary, especially with a job that requires you to wear black... these are super sticky and work well / Completely Bare "Completely Smooth" moisturizing No-Bump Shave Gel- I liked this sample and would consider purchasing it / Rich Radiance "Cocoa Butter Cleansing Wipes" not a fan of these or their smell, do not recommend / Watson's "Black Pearl" face mask from Thailand- I liked this one, so far all of these have been awesome! / Watson's "Rice Yeast"- another good one from Thailand! / Revlon Colorsilk "Burgundy" x 2- one of my go-to hair colors! / Summer's Eve "Sheer Floral Cleansing Cloths"- these are a must have! Need to repurchase both the travel ones and the packs / Briogeo "Scalp Revival" conditioner- I liked this, it smells nice and feels tingly wish it was a bigger sample to really get a feel for it  

👇🏻 this is me for sure...
