fixate2.png

Glitter Fanatics! Like you I love e x t r a sparkle, and believe no look is complete without it, what if I told you, you can get great pigment for cheap. By now, I think every beauty brand, both luxe & Indie, have come out with a glitter formula that only seems to improve every time….So tell me beauty queens do you prefer loose or pressed?

I have had the pleasure of trying plenty of Indie brands, and now I can add Fixate to the mix. Fixate cosmetics blessed my makeup collection with some loose glitters and a really out of this world highlighter, and let’s just say I’m more than impressed with the pricing, and color pay off. After receiving my products, I did a little research on the site, watched Youtube, and after a days pass, I finally opened and tested the items I received.

Glitter Pots

Fixate cosmetics have a choice of 30 glitter pot shades ranging in both cool tone blues to fiery reds, to even a white glitter—Like, what? Each individual glitter, is $2 which compared to a lot of other companies, is not bad at all. I really like these glitter pots, because they can be used on your nails, eyes, and face glitter, so you can definitely get a variety of looks. The shades that I got that I received were Purple reign – ( which is a lilac purple), Black Goddess – (Black w/ hints of navy blue), & fairy dust- ( silver), the color payoff is immaculate, especially for the pricing- a lot of glitters that are normally this cheap are those horrible glitters with that sticky gel / vaseline, uhhh just thinking about gives me chills, but not these glitters, they pick up easily; and are build-able, with the use of a primer of course. You can use your finger, but it applies better with the use of a concealer brush, it picks up more product. I also pat the product in the area I want it, because who rubs in anything, dealing with beauty. I really enjoy the glitters, I’m pretty much a pro at using glitter, but you have to start somewhere, right? This is a great glitter for beginners, or if you’re looking to start doing makeup.

GLOW baked highlighter

When it comes to highlight, I’m pretty much obsessed, sometimes overly, but heyyy we all have our beauty obsessions. I’ve tried so many highlights, I probably could tell you the brand blindfolded— told you, obsessed— It’s just I know what I like & look for in a quality highlight. When I got my highlighter in the mail, I was so excited, and kind of had my thoughts planned as to what to expect. Fixate carries these Glow baked highlighters in shades Twilight, Opulence, & Baked. I received the Baked highlighter, which is a pretty golden shade w/ hints of champagne in it, retailing for $14. The highlighter is baked so you can expect a lot of fall out and tons of glitter, which I’m not mad about. When you swatch the shade it’s super light— almost like you’re swatching a marshmallow, is that a weird description, I can’t really describe it, I just know its soft and full of sparkle. When applying, with the swipe & flick of the wrist, be prepared to endure tons of fall out, but a ton of G L O WWhen applying this baked highlighter it’s best to spray some fix plus setting spray then apply it, this allows it to stay in position, and you can then manipulate the blending quality. Another way is to just wear it as a bronzer and shimmer affect, this option acts almost like the Fenty beauty fairy bomb glitter— and will look just as beautiful for a lot cheaper.

As first impressions go— the products did not disappoint. The glitters and highlighters turned out beautiful, and the brand offers quality beauty products, for a amazing price— Capital on the AH mazing— I will definitely be posting again about the products shown in this post.

Loves,

How much does your skincare change? With the difficulties of the weather, & seasons, I constantly change my routine, but its definitely time to say “Boy Bye” to the routine changes and find something more long lasting.

I have tried the Neutrogena hydogel mask, Brightening hydrogel mask, and the capsule sleeping mask, and here are my thoughts.

HYDROGEL MASK

hydroboost3

Neutrogena has developed a hydro-GEL mask, unlike no other, ridding dry skin, and enhancing the dull appearance of skin. This hydrogel masks nourishes the skin with seaweed extract, and water in the form of flexible gel. This gel mask is translucent, and unlike sheet masks that dry down, the gel masks are infused with nutrients that keep its moisture and doesn’t dry out. I have combination skin, so I have the result of both dry & oily skin. Using this mask, help to extract dirt and oil, but keep my moisture and natural oils in my skin, which does not give a total drying effect to the skin. What I love about the mask, is after using it for 15-20 min, you can refrigerate the mask, restoring a cooling effect that helps plump the skin, and helps with redness, the left over residue from the mask, can be rubbed into the skin as a moisturizer, leaving the skin soft & supple.

Radiance Boost brightening maskhydroboost2

The radiance boost brightening mask, contains Vitamin B-3, which boost the skins texture, and radiance. Skin that is dull & contains scarring; and redness, this is the mask for you. The skin mask fights against acne, while cooling the skin of redness, and dry; dull skin. The mask is only $2.99

Neutrogena capsule sleeping mask

This travel size sleeping mask, may be small; but packs a big punch. The sleeping mask, is a concentrated gel mask, infused with hyaluronic acids, meant to target all skin problems; dryness, acne, aging, etc. I got about 4 good uses out of it, putting a little on, after cleansing my face, felt very moisturizing and gave me supple; hydrated skin in the morning.

After reviewing all the mask received, I can say that they are all successful masks. The hydragel masks, contains 50% more moisture than the sheet mask, and you get more uses out of them, the infusion of enzymes, and vitamins boosts the skin appearance in minutes.

Besthairbuy| Extensions

Loves.

B E Y O N C E , L A D Y G A G A, R I H A N N A…anything comes to mind? Lets put aside the fact that they’re all Q U E E N S, and great performers. Well, being that this is about hair, these women are known for whipping hair, and being style icons.

Hair extensions are the rage of the hair world, besthairbuy hair extensions are not only a boost to play with length & volume, but if you’re into switching up your styles constantly, this is what you want to try. Hair extensions come in wavy, straight, or kinky; curly hair. This is Hair extensions 101.

Bonded Hair extensions, are strands that are bonded or fused w/ natural hair using heat. These hair bonds are detachable, and safe to use, the only thing is once taken out you’re not able to reuse them. 

Tape in Hair extensions, are wefts of hair attached to double sided tape, which is then attached to your natural hair. You’re able to part your hair, and place the tape wherever you want length, it is completely harmless to hair strands.

Sew in, this is the most popular styling of the hair extensions. Your natural hair is braided and the hair extensions are then, sewn into the braids. The braiding styles determine if you want a side part, or if you want the option of putting your in a ponytail. When getting a sew in you still have to wash it, because this is not a long lasting style. The sew in can last for a few months.

Besthairbuy hair extensions, should be cared for just as natural hair. Hair extensions keep your natural hair protected for heat, and environmental damages, but still if not cared for hair extensions can lead to hair shedding, thinning. Be as gentile as possible when styling weave, no pulling or tugging, because the hair can be tangled and cause slippage at the root.

Pricing varies to not only the style choice, but the type of hair you purchase, synthetic hair tends to be cheaper and tangle easily, but as for fun colors, or something temporary synthetic hair can be the better option, for all my unicorns this is for you. Human hair can cost hundreds of  $$$, but this is more natural looking, & last for a longer period of time.

Maybelline New York- BUYS

lipstickkk167

Hi Lovelies 

Maybelline New York, has to be one of the best makeup brands, like right?

I recently brought a few of their mattes and metallic shades from their Colorsensational line, here are some swatches for your enjoyment, because I will be back with many more.

lipstickkk11

Maybelline has always killed it, with the formulas for their products, and I admit they have improved 10 fold, since I purchased my first product from them. When it comes to lipstick I look at every detail there is, smell, is it worth my shmoney, packaging, how long will it last, can I eat pizza and not look like a gremlin after ( Hi, i’m a Virgo). OKAY ENOUGH RAMBLING!!

I recently purchased some of their lippies half metallic, half matte. When it comes to metallic lip products, sometimes the shades show up as iridescent rather than metallic, so I was a bit anxious of how they would look. I brought Copper Rose ( Deep Red-Orange), Molten Bronze ( Brown w/ green iridescent) and Hot Lava ( Bright Crimson Red w/ yellow shimmer). The shades are very gorgeous, when gliding it over my lips and swatching the shades, it doesn’t apply tacky, the application is very creamy and rich.

The next shades are the matte colors I purchased in Concrete Jungle ( Brick grey), Rebel Pink ( fuschia ), and Sapphire Siren ( Blue). I love a comfortable matte, which is why most of my makeup collection consist of liquid lipsticks, but some matte(s) can be rough and tug when applying. The 3 shades that I brought, apply nice, before application, I did a lip scrub and removed dead skin cells, so that the shades would not look rough, and it helped. The matte shades last for a while, I’m not going to exaggerate and say it last all day, but through a cup of coffee, until lunch it lasted, and even after left a stain, which wasn’t bad.

Overall, I loved the shades I purchased, they all have very great pigment, and apply without tugging and pulling on my lips. I think the metallic shades have better quality formula as far as, pigment and applying smoothly.

I hope my Lovelies, have enjoyed my quick review, if so “LIKE” this post and tell me what is better Liquid lipsticks or Classic lipstick? Let me know in the comments
