Moodstruck Precision Pencil Lipliner and Precision Eyelash Curler

In this blog I will be talking to you about 2 (technically 6) Younique products.  I stayed off the Younique train for a really LONG time.  I won’t lie to you, I think the 9,000 Facebook parties and invites I got were what did me in!  I love makeup! I love makeup recommendations! I love trying new products! However, I don’t like new products shoved down my throat. And when someone tries to sell you something, because they 100% LOVE everything they sell, they are LYING! Let’s be honest, I know you all have another makeup brand swimming around your makeup drawer!  And I bet everyone has a Maybelline mascara hidden somewhere too! (Because who doesn’t own at least ONE Maybelline mascara?!)

Anyway, one of my dear friends, Jeanne, is a Younique Presenter and she has sold me on some of their products.  I love the way she runs her business and how she tells you the truth! (If you are interested in seeing what she has to offer, just click her name above!)


Welcome to the lovely land of AMAZING lip liners! I’m pretty new to the lip liner world.  It’s one of those makeup products that I stayed away from for FOREVER! For some reason I lived in a land where I thought lip liner and lipstick (or lip gloss) had to match…WRONG! Baby, I will slap 2 of the most bazaar colors on now! Sometimes I just wear lip liner… This stuff is amazing with lipstick, lip gloss, or just by itself!


They currently only have 5 colors, but I’m going to need them to come out with more!  Because, I need (Ok…really want) then ALLLLL!  Does anyone know why they all start with a P? (If you do, let me know in the comments!)


In case you didn’t believe me, here are my 5.  I got Posh, Pompous, and Pouty in November.


(Top to bottom: Pompous, Pouty, and Posh.)

Pompous is dark purple, almost like a dark red wine color.  This makes for a very dramatic evening looking lip. This lip liner is almost a little Gothic, without being all black for me.

Pouty is the perfect nude liner, with just a touch of pink.  This looks great under a pale nude lipstick or even a pale pink gloss.  It’s also great if you just wear the liner for a nude lip. Perfect for everyday use!  This lip liner screams responsible, big girl, and I don’t want everyone staring at my lips, but I want them to look GOOD!

Posh is just the right mixture of a purple with a hot pink! I thought this was my favorite till I tried Perky! I love this bright lip liner with a paler lipstick, so the liner really shines through.  Out of all my liners, this is the one I have had to sharpen the most. This lip liner says mature and responsible to me.



(Top to bottom: Perky and Primal.) I got these 2 in February.

I LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOVE Perky! I have recently become obsessed with bright pink lips!  I have no clue why.  I never wear bright lips to work, but I will rock them on the weekend. Anyway, this is my favorite!!!  Is it the most practical, definitely not.  I would say Posh and Pouty would win the practical, everyday award.  But, this is you clubbing sister, that only comes out on the weekends and she comes out STRONG!

Primal is the color I have used the least.  I HATE red lipstick with orange undertones.  So I am always looking for the perfect red lipstick (and lip liners) with more of a blue or purple undertone. While this product is good, I can’t say I use it often.  I just don’t wear red, unless it is clothing. When I wear a red lip 99% of the time, I feel like a clown or Miranda Sings. I don’t know why, I just do!  But, this lipstick definitely screams SEXY to me!


(This being Miranda Sings.)

I wanted to compared these Younique liners with my NYX liner.


NYX lipliner in SPL817 Hot Red is on top.

Younique lip liner in Primal is on bottom.

These were the 2 most similar colors that I had.


This is what happened when I rubbed the 2 colors.  The NYX smudged and faded, while the Younique stayed in place. So just imagine that happening on your lips!

Anyway, if you think you are interested, you should definitely check out Jeanne’s page or find a local Younique Presenter near you! Get all 5, or at least 1, and try them out! Do you have a favorite lip liner or brand? Let me know in the comments below!


Now on to the second, but technically sixth, product.

THIS!  I believe this was an add on product for purchases in January through Younique, it MAY have been December… I can’t remember.  Anyway, I could hardly find anything about it online or even in an image search.  BUT, I know that it will be available for purchase in March!

I have always hated eyelash curlers!  When going through my make up yesterday, I found 3.  I found a cheap one, a Revlon one, and one I bought at Ulta.  I thought this one would be something I would never get any use out of, but I was wrong.  I use this bad boy almost daily and I LOVE it!

While it is made extremely similar to all the ones I own, the major difference is it is spring loaded!  I don’t know if it is made different and I just can’t tell.  Maybe the padding is thicker.  BUT, I know the spring is different.  My other curlers don’t really do anything or very little to my lashes, but this does! It curls them all, it doesn’t pinch my eyelids, and it doesn’t leave that weird crimped mark in your lashes.  It is the perfect tool to add to your makeup drawer! I have no clue how much this will be when it’s available in March but, I’m assuming around $20.

If you want to try this curler or the lip liners check out Jeanne’s Younique page or find a local Presenter near you! I hope you all are having a great week!  I would to hear from you and your comments on the products above! Feel free to leave any questions you have below or e-mail me!



Nivea Shave Balm

So I am FINALLY back among the living with an internet connection!  Thanks AT&T for finally fixing that! I’m sure the data charges on my phone are going to be through the roof this month, oh well. Anyway, I haven’t posted a blog in forever because of my funky internet. I could have probably posted one off my phone, but that seems like a major pain in the BUTT!

Anyway, let’s get to today’s post! Sooo I’ve been on the hunt for a new foundation primer. I’ve been wearing the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer for MONTHS, maybe even a year. However, it’s started not really working for me.  I don’t know if it’s because my newest tube maybe has a different formula in it or even because I’ve switched foundations.  BUT, the foundation is just not staying like it should! This stuff is also $36 for 1oz. So when it stopped working, I was NOT a happy girl! If you want to check it out this is the link for it at Ulta.


So I’ve been looking for a new primer and all over social media and YouTube I have been hearing about this Nivea Post Shave Balm.  I know you are probably rolling your eyes, because I was too! I remember thinking, NO WAY! That stuff is not going to work! I don’t want to smell like a man!

But, I was strolling the aisles at Target, like all of us females do.  (I swear Target has something in the air that makes you want to just stroll around for a hour!) Anyway, during my stroll, I somehow ended up on the shaving aisle.  I saw this Nivea Post Shave Balm and I also noticed that it is $5.59 for 3.3oz.  I put that baby boy in my cart ASAP!

So the next morning when I was doing my makeup I decided to try it.


(Here’s my bottle, just in case you don’t really believe me.)

I did my eyes first, like I always do, and then I applied this.  It does smell like a man, I won’t lie, but it is a good smelling man smell. You want to rub it in, until it gets extremely tacky. The #2 ingredient in this is glyerian and glyerian is the super glue of the make up world. So once this stuff is good and sticky, apply your foundation! AND IT WORKS! My foundation has been staying like a pro! I touch my face 10,000 times a day.  I ruin my makeup more than probably anyone else.  My hands are always on my face and my eyes… It’s a horrible habit and I don’t even notice I’ve done it, until I look in a mirror.

I bought this in January and I’ve been wearing it for over 2 weeks, go buy it!  Go spend the less than $6 and thank me, because you will!

Now that my internet is up and going, I plan to have another blog up in the next few days.  I’m trying to stick to my 2 blog posts a week deal. Anyway, I hope you all are having a great presidents day! If you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them down below or email me at!

Top 6 of 2015 – Part 2

Here is the second part of my Top 6 of 2015! I’m doing this while attempting to paint my fingernails, so we shall see how this goes! (More like how the nails go…)


Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara


So I won’t lie, I was not on the Younique train for the longest time!  I avoided it. I thought it was a gimmick.  I thought it was stupid.  And I really found most of the presenters extremely annoying (Sorry!)  But, then my friend, Jeanne, turned me around.  She gave me one of the old formula duos and I was addicted, once I figured it out.  I won’t lie, applying these fibers and gel has a learning curve.  BUT, once you get the hang of it, watch out lashes! This duo will cost you $29, which is around the price of most high end mascaras. My lashes have never been so long and full!  Check out Jeanne’s Younique site and go buy some mascara!




Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo & Conditioner


I won’t lie, this shampoo and conditioner has changed my hair’s life! It has never been this shiny, healthy, and rich looking! It is a mixture of tea tree oil, lavender, and peppermint oil. It will leave you scalp tingling, literally! Sarah Ann, I should buy you some giant bottles just for suggesting this to me!

You have to check this shampoo and conditioner out!  There is a whole line of products on the Paul Mitchell website, but I’ve only tried the shampoo and conditioner.  I get mine at Ulta. One, because of the rewards system.  Two, because I’ve only ever bought it on sale.  Either buy 2, get 1 free or their liter sale. ***Ulta has their $33 liters on sale for $21.99 until January, 23.




Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

(That is a mouthful!)


Lets be honest, I know none of y’all are shocked that an Urban Decay product made this list.  I am a die hard Urban Decay junkie!  Their eye shadows are my favorite!  But, anyway, back to this amazing concealer.  This stuff is amazing! (Can I say amazing anymore?!)  At the end of the day my foundation may have rubbed off, but my concealer will still be going strong!  I wear Medium Light Neutral and it is the best!  Before, I tried this one I never like any concealer that I tried.  They would smear, ball up, or get all caked under my eye, but not this bad boy!!! I put it under my eyes, on the crease of my nose, and up the bridge of my nose and then I blend it out with a beauty blender. Try it!  You will not regret it!

You can get it at Urban Decay, Ulta, and Sephora.  It will cost you $28.  I bought some last March and just had to replace it in December, so it lasts!


I would love to know y’alls top 5, 6, or even 1 beauty product of 2015! Feel free to comment below or email me!

Top 6 of 2015

Soooooo this post started out as my Top 5 of 2015, except I got stuck.  I narrowed my list down to 6 and just could not delete it down anymore.  So y’all are getting a bonus item! *insert happy dance here* The items listed below are in no particular order.  Since I did not take a decent picture of them when purchasing the items, I am going to post pictures form the sellers websites and where you can purchase them. I know some of these items were not released in 2015, BUT 2015 is when I discovered them.  Consider that your disclaimer!

The Beauty Blender


NOW I know this sponge costs $20.  I know that is expensive for a sponge.  BUT, it is worth EVERY FREAKING penny!  I honestly would pay $40… I bought my first Beauty Blender in March or April of 2015.  Originally I was going to go with a cheaper one at Ulta and the girl told me to walk over to Sephora and buy the original.  When a salesperson tells you to go somewhere else to buy something, you listen! I know there are 10,000 knock offs, most have really crappy reviews, but I would maybe be willing to give some of them a shot.  (For the purposes of this blog and all that jazz.) Anyway, back to my thoughts, I bought my first blender last spring and I just recently trashed it.  It probably could have lasted longer, but I was pretty lazy with cleaning it, so that’s all my fault.  I got a new one for Christmas (Thanks Gee!) and decided I would start using it at the beginning of 2016, so we will see how long it lasts.  That is with frequent cleaning! This is where you can purchase your Beauty Blender! I know they come in black, pink, and white.  I have seen the minis in green, but I’ve never tried them.  Also, they had red, at one point in time. This sponge is great for apply foundation, BUT it is my go to for concealer. I will apply my concealer under my eyes, crease of my nose, up the middle of my nose, and draw a flower on my forehead and this baby pats it out sooooo evenly!  There are no lines, there are no creases, there is nothing, except beautifully even concealer.

Now if you want to try something similar and less expensive, Real Techniques has a Miracle Complexion Sponge for $6.99 at Ulta. *Currently they are buy 1, get 1 free on the Ulta website, just click the link above.



Champagne Pop


2015 was the year of highlighters! You highlight the tops of your cheeks, your nose, your cupid’s bow, you highlight everything! #highlightonfleek

Anyway, I was slow to get on the highlight train. I’ve highlighted for years, but I have always used a pale pink blush, not a champagne, gold, or even white color.  PEOPLE, what rock was I under?!?! This product is $38, and only sold at Sephora.  It was limited edition, but Becca just announced last week that it would not be going anywhere! *insert happy dance* I know this item is pricey, but it is near impossible to finish this container.  This compact will last you YEARS!


This is my compact of Champagne Pop, I’ve had it since the beginning of October and it looks like I’ve barely touched it. I apply it to the tops of my cheek bones, the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow, and right under my eyebrows.

Baby's got blue eyes

I don’t typically apply highlighter on my chin because it sticks out so far as it, but do as you please.  You can always ease into it!  Start with the top of your cheeks, until you feel comfortable, and then move on.

Becca has several amazing Shimmering Skin Perfectors (highlighters) on their website.

Moonstone – pale gold

Opal – golden opal gold

Topaz – golden bronze pearl

Champagne gold – soft warm gold

Rose gold – soft gold infused with rose tones

Now they have 2 highlighters I can on find at Sephora

Pearl – soft luminescent white

Champagne pop – soft white gold with pinky peach undertones

Try them out!  Let me know what you think about them in the comments below!






Anastasia Brow Powder Duo


I will be the first to tell you, I hate my eyebrows! They grow like a weed, they are bushy, and I could put Bert to shame with a uni brow in the matter of a week! BUT, this product has made me actually like my eyebrows!  Sometimes, miracles can really happen.

I got this at Sephora in Dallas.  I went in to purchase Champagne Pop and asked the girl what she would recommend for eyebrows, she suggested this and applied it.  I was instantly sold! It is $23, but my brows stay on alllllll damn day!

This is only the second product I’ve bought form Anastasia Beverly Hills, but I have been impressed so far.  This company seems to have really boomed in 2015!  They have good eye shadows, liquid lipsticks, but I think their brow products are the best.

They have 11 different shades, mine is in dark brown.  I won’t lie, I like the web site set up on Sephora way better than the actual company website.  Also, I apply the brow powder with a Sephora Pro Brow 20 brush.

Try it out and let me know what you think in the comments below!

***I know I said this would be 6 items, but since this post is going to be so long, I decided to post 3 today and then the rest tomorrow or early this week.  Happy blogging and if you have any questions leave them in the comments below or email me!
