Warby Parker |NEW COLLECTION EYEWEAR ’17 (Debut Feb 15)

Hi Lovelies.

Today I am super excited to show you the newest collection of eye wear by Warby Parker. As a fashion blogger, I love to try the latest in everything, and having the right shades have to be a must have accessory in the world of fashion.

“It turns out there was a simple explanation. The eyewear industry is dominated by a single company that has been able to keep prices artificially high while reaping huge profits from consumers who have no other options.

We started Warby Parker to create an alternative.

By circumventing traditional channels, designing glasses in-house, and engaging with customers directly, we’re able to provide higher-quality, better-looking prescription eyewear at a fraction of the going price.

We believe that buying glasses should be easy and fun. It should leave you happy and good-looking, with money in your pocket.

We also believe that everyone has the right to see.

Almost one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses, which means that 15% of the world’s population cannot effectively learn or work. To help address this problem, Warby Parker partners with non-profits like VisionSpring to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.

There’s nothing complicated about it. Good eyewear, good outcome”.

Warbys’ Spring collection of eye wear and shades have captivated the essence of femininity and metal, which is a trend that has been debuting in collections of both fashion and beauty, so eye wear is just a chic additive.

I love this company, Warby Parker, makes prescription glasses that has its own unique style and also have chic styling of no other eye wear. I am proud to be one of the few first to see the entire collection, and get to share it with you guys.

Here are just a few of my personal favorites from the collection:

Hi Lovelies,

I’m back with another beauty haul, today I am going to be reviewing 2 palettes of the Balm cosmetics, Guys! I don’t know how much I rave about this brand, probably a lot, but I was excited to try theBalmJovi palette and the Smoke palette. So, lets get into this review, SHALL WE.

lrm_export_20170211_2115361

 lrm_export_20170211_2140251

I am a huge “palette girl” I love a great drugstore brand palette, I mean I’m all for luxury brands, but I don’t like being completely broke. The Balm, if I haven’t said it before, this brand has great quality products for great prices.

Okay now for the palette, the Balm Jovi palette is a full face palette that comes with 12 eye shadows , highlighter, blush, and 2 lip shades. I never used a full face palette, I buy products individually, but I feel that this palette has its advantages, I mean you’re paying for a palette that comes literally with everything, and you’re saving a ton of money. This palette retails for $20, which is a great price for the entire palette.

This palette is so amazing the eye shadows have 4 metallic shades, 4 matte, and 4 shimmer shades. All the eye shadow shades are super pigmented, they are very creamy and I love how the shades vary they have light shades, transition shades, and dark shades also they have a few warm tone colors which I live for.

lrm_export_20170212_1133191

I swatched all the shades and I did have to prime my arm, I never had to do that BTW, but the shadows shows up as they do in the palette. Each swatch is 2 layers so they show up better. Okay, so the shades itself are super pigmented, they all show up nicely, they are not at all chalky, they apply very smooth, and even swatch super creamy. I like that that the palette had 3 different shade finishes ( metallic, matte, and shimmer).

The consistency of this palette is very nice I think the shades are lovely so the swatches are above. (left to right)

The first 4 are all metallic shades_

  • Metallica  ( white Metallic)
  • Iron Maiden ( Golden)
  • Led Zepplin ( Olive Green Metallic)
  • Alice Cooper (Brown w/Mauve undertone Metallic)

I really love these pigmented metallic shades, they are rich in color, and apply so creamy, I also like that they are grouped as heavy metal rock bands, all of whom I’ve listened to a billion times, these shades apply really nice with/out primer, there is a ton of fall out, but what eyeshadow doesn’t.

The MID – 4 Matte

  • Adagio ( very light brown w/white undertone)
  • Allegro (Taupe Brown)
  • Moderato ( Deep matte Purple)
  • Presto (Deep Brown)

So these 4 are all matte shades based on classical music, which is really great. I love the shades, they are very wearable warm tone shades. I like the deep purple that is in the mix. I think the shades are really pretty, the only thing is that these are best with a primer, otherwise they show up super light, barely visible with exception of the deep purple. Overall the classical shades are really nice, and  nice range of shades for the palette.

The last 4 – Shimmer shades

  • Blink 182 ( Nude Brown w/ pink undertone )
  • The Stroke ( Navy Blue)
  • Rem ( Lilac Purple)
  • Third Eye Blinded ( A fair Pink shimmer)

The last 4 are all shimmer shades, these shades are grouped based off popular rock bands. These shades have to be my favorite, they are super pigmented, and out of all the shades these 4 didn’t have as much fall out as the rest. These shades look really pretty with/without primer. The shimmer shades do have a ton of glitter, but I really like the shimmer on my eyes.

Overall the eye shades look really nice, the application of these shades all have a nice creamy consistency, I have to say the metallic shades have to be my favorite, they show up better on my eyes and the color range is wearable day or night.

lrm_export_20170210_1232041

Next is the Smoke Balm palette, this palette is a great palette for any day, they only contain 3 shades a shimmer black, a warm neutral shade, and a highlight shade. I really like the shades in this palette, the shades are not crazy shades, they are warm tone colors, which I appreciate.

The shades are:

  • Blaze ( shimmer Black)
  • Spark ( Matte taupe brown)
  • Flame ( highlight)

I really like this palette, Blaze and spark are my favorite, they are super pigmented and have a very rich consistency. The shades start off light, so they are buildable, the highlight shade is a little to light for my skin tone, it almost look chalky, but swatch wise its very beautiful, it looks like Ice, its kind of comparable to the champagne pop glow palette.

Here are the swatches of the smoke balm palette.

Face on Fleek (Beauty Spin Haul) #Summerslayin

2016-06-15-17-22-08

PR Samples are provided by Beautyspin, all opinions are my own.

Hi Loves,

IT’S FINALLY SUUMMMERRR!! Yasss goodbye sweater weather, Hello Mirrored sunnies and Shorts. I have been loving the weather, and with the weather changing, so is my makeup trends.

I know its visible that I have a slight obsession with Beautyspin, but I just can’t help myself, I mean great prices, quality products, & Makeup (I mean nuf’ said). I could go on & on about how much I love this site, but I want to keep this post short and sweet. Enjoy

So recently, I had the chance to review my newest picks of the month, and I wanted to pick brands I absolutely never try on the daily basis. Lets start with the eyes.

2016-06-15-17-27-52

If I’m not wearing a ton of makeup, you can bet I’ll have my eyebrows on fleek #browsonfleek, am I right. I got the Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil in the shade Dark Brown. I really love this product, and trust Mama don’t play about her brows. I am a strict nyx girl when it comes to my brows, but this worked really well. It wasn’t harsh on my brows, and glided during application, it wasn’t rought like other brow pencils. I think Rimmel London might be a new go to, oh! The price was $4 (I mean the price speaks for itself).

Next is another Rimmel London product, its the Rimmel London Lip Contouring pencil in Coffee Bean. I love a great Lip Liner, this is beyond the galaxy. Like I said I really don’t usually go for Rimmel London, (unless it’s a lipstick) but this lip contouring pencil works wonders, the shade is gorgeous, the pigmentation is amazing, & the formula is very velvet “like.”  I love using this, and I’ve seriously only been using it for like a week.. I know the Love game is strong.

Next, I got the Balm cosmetics, Meet Matt(e) Hughes lip shade in Charming. I have NEVER tried anything from the balm collection, so this was my first ever product. This lipstick is so gorgeous, and pigmented, this may be on the list of favorite matte lipsticks. The color is so riche and creamy, and its super matte, Like it takes seconds to dry. I really like the color, and formula of the lipstick, the application is very creamy, and drys to a smooth matte finish. I did swatch all the shades.👇👇👇

Lastly, I can thank my favorite Beauty Lover, Jeffree Star for this last product. I got me a setting spray and I used to didn’t really worry to much about my makeup, but it’s getting hot, and my makeup need to be on fleek. If Jeffree Star swears by it, it must be good. I’ve been using this Avon setting spray, and it works really good. When it comes to setting spray, it doesn’t have to be fancy, it simply has to work, and this does. I love it so much.

So one week its Lipsticks, now more beauty products(is it christmas again). Beautyspin sent me a few things to review and try out, well I got to take my pick, and it was so much fun to try out. Here’s my Beautyspin Haul.

2016-01-21-12-53-31

Kate Moss Rimmel London (Red 01)

2016-01-21-13-30-37

I’ve always wanted to try Rimmel London’s Kate collection, I really dont know what held me back, so I didn’t miss the opportunity to try it. At first, I thought the red was going to be like all the other reds’ I’ve purchased, but this red is more rosy than the others that I purchased.

I also got to try the Catrice Cosmetic Calligraph Ultra slim Eyeliner. I always love getting new eyeliners, and with it being such a variety of them, this one will be the last I purchase, for now.

2016-01-22-16-15-45

I love how slim and precise this eyeliner is, its like using a pen. Literally this is perfection in a thin tube. I guarantee this eyeliner does not dissapoint.

2016-01-21-13-29-21

Next, I got an OPI nail polish in the shade Expresso Lane. This color is legit one of my favorites from the Touring America Collection. I love this color, and the shade is amazing ( I’ll post pics to my Insta)- I’ll leave the link below.

This product I was excited to try. The L’Oreal Micellar Water is toner and makeup remover. This water is very much a cleanser, its super light weight and smells very clean. I’ve used it maybe 3 times since I’ve gotten it, and I can already tell the difference between this cleanser and my old makeup cleansers. Overall this is a good buy.

2016-01-22-13-21-28

The Valentino Body Milk and Glade candle I got was my best buys. The Valentino V( thats right Valentino)  body milk is devine, it feels it works best after I shower, but it moisturizes all day, leaving my skin smoothe and silky, especially during Winter Weather, which I dread. The Gladecozy moments” candle, smells like The holidays all over again. When I chose this product I could only think of my mom, and how she loves candles, so this was literally a gift to her. After smelling so many times I kinda want to keep it, but I think its best if I give it to her. The candle is packaged so good, but the holidays are definitely packed in that smell.

The Kallo Cosmetic line of Go go products, were really new to me. The Go go refreshing shower gel, is wonderful. The shower gel, is very smoothe and not gritty, you know when you purchase some gels and they seem to be gritty in the shower, this go go shower gel works wonderfully. This came as a free gift, and kind of glad they picked this as it.

What’ in the Bag??

Hi Lovelies,

I know I havent been consistent with posting these past few weeks, but I promise to make it up😊
I recently have been looking at numerous post I’ve done and some of my favorite bloggers, and noticed I haven’t posted any post about what I have in my bag, which Ive been seeing alot lately. Well, today wait no longer, because I will definitely be posting about that.

Well as you guys know, Spring is nearly over and its almost SUMMER TIME, you know the Sun, everythings hot, ice cream, shorts, the beach and all that good stuff. It seems though its Summer, its the busiest season of them all, and you might want to pack/ carry wherever you may be going the best products and reads.

During the summer, or any day I always carry some sort of magazine, and this month, I’ve really been in love with the Marie Claireissue on Rachel McAdams, they have a great spread on her from her days as a Mean Girl, to now, and its really great.
Nextt, Hand sanitizer is always a plus to take, because there are so many germs in the world, and during the Summer, I’m always prone to get sick so I carry 2 hand sanitizers with me. At Bath & Body Works there’s a 5 for $5 on hand sanitizers, and that is amazing because they have so many delicious smells, and if its one thing I like is delicious smelling sanitizers.

Dry Skin is a hazard, so its always good to take lotion, I prefer to take scented lotion, like the one shown in the pic above, I believe I got it from Bath & Body Works for $5.50, which is a great price, and its so cute to carry around.(Excuse my dramatics over cute pocket size items)😊😊

Niveais such a light weight moisturizer its filled with Vitamin E, and Shea Butter, which are magnificent ingredients for your skin. I suggest that everyone use this, because it gets the job done, and its not oily, super light weight, and a great natural scent to it.❤

Lastly, I love my lips, and its good that I keep them protected, I love creating the perfect pout, for those summer selfies, so I carry a lipgloss, and a lipstick. I carry both because the lipstick is for reapplying my color, and the gloss is for the pout. I have been in love with Elf cosmetics, they’re affordable, and gets the job done, I brought this lipgloss for $2, and that is way better than spending $18 on MAC lipgloss. I love lipgloss, and lipstains, but I love a great price even more

Here are some links to some of the products
