I've Missed You!!!

I've been out for a while, working hard as a Pediatric nurse and having fun in between!

Oh and my daughter got her first official haircut at the salon. At first I wanted her bangs trimmed but I decided it's time to get an all around haircut. So above is a picture of her getting her haircut into a super cute bob hairstyle.

After the haircut! My cute pie

So here's my latest haul from Hautelook. I've been buying online for the most part or I go to Kohls. We moved to a whole new city and the closest store is Kohls, which is fine but I still miss going to Marshals. 

I love The Balm cosmetics, so when it went on sale at Hautelook.com, I just had to get some items.

One of the things I bought is this palette called Nude'tude. Some of the eyeshadows are powdery but the color pay off is great.

Here are the eye shadows with just ONE swatch each.

I also bought this lip gloss, it's not sticky at all but it comes on very light so don't be fooled by the blood orange color in the tube. It also has SPF 17 and tastes and smells like bananas.

Here is the swatch of the lip gloss. It looks dark against my arm but trust me it comes on lighter on my lips. 

Another thing that I had to, had to get is Bahama Mama bronzer. It's a very nice bronzer, I have to admit!

This is how it looks like in the container.

Here's the swatch! It's a matte bronzer and it looks very natural. This would be perfect for contouring. I don't have any contouring powder so this is perfect!

Here are my blushes from The Balm that I previously bought from Hautelook.

DOWNBOY: this is a very pretty light pink blush. It's matte so it's perfect for an everyday blush. Out of all the blushes that I own, I feel like this is the most natural looking flush.

CABANABOY: This is a very pretty, glamorous type of blush. It's also matte but definitely gives a rosy glow. I would probably use this more for night time and for going out on date nights or something.

FRATBOY: Peachy, orange blush that is my current favorite. I think I reach for this more than any of my other blushes. This just gives me such a healthy flush. It's also a matte color so definitely great for the daytime. 

Now here is my "Go to work" makeup bag

  • Ardell Brow gel (it was clear but now it's brown from the brow powder transferring over), 
  • MAC brow shader duo powder in Maple/Soft Charcoal
  •  Costco duo ended brow brush/spooly, 
  • MAC brushes in 150 and 129, 
  • MAC MSF powder in Medium Plus, 
  • The Balm blushes, 
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, 
  • Sonia Kashuk eye lash curler, 
  • Cover Girl Lash Blast Waterproof mascara, 
  • Urban Decay De Slick oil free setting spray.

If you are looking to try a new foundation that stays on ALL DAY, I suggest Estee Lauder Double Wear. Running around as a Peds Nurse for straight 8 hrs without a break, means no time to do touch-ups so I was so happy to have found a foundation that can stay put all day and doesn't melt off my face. I bought this at the outlet mall, but it is still available at retail stores as well and for more color selection. The outlet only has it in three colors but for about $27. The regular price is $35. The color that I use is Fresco 01.

My current fragrance is Michael Kors Very Hollywood. This is such a sweet scent, very light. The liquid perfume is pink and the bottle is clear with gold sparkles. The scent is said to be "shimmering jewels of mandarin and iced bergamot."

So that is it for now, I will try to update as much as possible. I am actually just getting over some sort of stomach virus. I didn't go to work today because of it and even though my stomach is still sore, I decided to go ahead and take advantage of this free time and update you guys. Anyways, will be blogging again soon!

Take care!
