Growing ….


Hey loves ! Long time no write 😊. So I have not posted something on here in such a long time , I think my last post was … well to be honest I really don’t remember . I have neglected my blog and I really want to start blogging more frequently . Like anything in life , change is sure to come . If your not changing your not growing right ? Looking back when I first started this blog I know I am a completely different person . So much has happened over the course of almost 4 years 


I don’t see things the way I use to , I don’t think in the manner that I use to . Like everyone , life has thrown my way challenge after challenge and has in most cases pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to grow even if it wasn’t imedately . It has slowly shaped me in to the women I am today good and some bad if I’m truly honest . 

Saying all that to say lol ( I don’t know where I was going with all of that ) I want my blog to have content represents all of me . I have been mostly beauty and fashion , but I would like to include some lifestyle (mommy stuff , home decor , planning ,etc.) and motivational/inspirational content.  I decided to implement a schedule – 

Monday : Motivationl / Inspirationl 

Wednesday : Lifestyle 

Friday: Beauty / Fashion 
I will eventually post something all three days , but for now even if it is once or twice a week I will only post on these days . I’m really excited and I’ll talk to you in another post ! 

xoxo, 

India ❤️

New Hair !!!


DSC_1419

 

I have to say that I forgot how much I love hair color ! I was in the need of a new hair style , I was experiencing a hair dead-end so to speak.  One of the ways that I express myself is through my makeup and hair . It lets my creativity soar . Picking a not so normal color has given me a new found freedom . Sure I have received a few side looks , but I truly don’t care because this makes me happy . I love stepping out of my box and trying new things . This will not be the last crazy color so to say that you will see from me 😉

My Top three high-end eyeshadow palettes 


Hey loves ! I was going through my palette collection and I wanted to share which palettes are my favorites at the moment . 

Lorac Pro Matte 


This little palette packs a lot of punch . What I love about it is that it’s all matte and neutral . The colors are so pigmented and it easy to go from day to night with this palette . 

Makeup by Mario (ABH) 


This is a beautiful warm tone palette . I love that the colors feel like butter . They blend so easily , and there is a very good color selection with palette . 

Tartelette in bloom 


This palette is another warm tone palette , I like the fact that there are not just Browns but some mauve /brown colors . They are pigmented and blend well  . Plus this palette smells like a dream . 
This is my short list of my high-end favorites , and to see what’s in my full eyeshadow collection click the link below 

Also let me know in the comments below what your favorite eyeshadow palette is .

Stila Magnificent Meatals Glitter Review 


Hey loves ! Today I wanted to talk about a product that I totally fell in love with . The Stila Magnificent metals Glitter & Glow  liquid . This product is fairly new and I have been loving them ! 

Product claims : 

• 11 Shades 

•Long wearing 

•Light-weight 

•Lots of sparkle 

•Minimal fallout 

•Reatils for $24.00

I personally own three shades from this collection . Smoldering satin , into the blue , and rose gold retro .


I love how glittery and pigmented they are . Out of the colors I have , all but one of the colors applied smoothly.


I have not  yet worn into the blue , but I noticed when I swatched it applied a little patchy . Which I was a little disappointed by because it’s such a beautiful color. I have to actually apply it to the lid to further test it out . 

I did find it to be long wearing with little fallout . To avoid the access glitter fallout I would suggest using a glitter glue and you will be good to go ! 


Besides the price point (I wish it was cheaper ) I have no complaints about this product , in fact I love this more than a loose glitter . 
I hope this reviewed helped , and please comment below if you have tried this product . Do you love it ? Do you hate it ??

Pixi X Its Judy Time Collab Palette Review and Swatches 


Hey guys ! So I just picked up the Its Judy Time palette with Pixi Cosmetics . Judy came out with an Eyeshadow palette as well as a lip palette . They are called its Eye time and its Lip time named after her popular YouTube channel Its Judy Time . 

The palette retails for 24.00 on Pixi. Com , Target.com , and Target stores . Each palette comes with 12 eyeshadow shades or Lip shades . 

The eyeshadow palette is a neutral everyday palette that can go from day to night easily . The colors blend well , and are pretty pigmented for an eyeshadow palette that is drugstore . The shimmer shades can easily be foiled with a makeup setting spray . The eyeshadows remind me of Lorac eyeshadows , they do have a lot of fall out once once you dip your brush in them , but they do not apply patchy or blotchy . I have been using this palette everyday ! In my honest opinion do you probably have these colors in your collection already ? Yea most likely . Do you need this palette in your life ? No you don’t , but if your a makeup collector and you are on the look out for an affordable alternative palette instead of spending 50 bucks this is for you . 


The lip palette is made up of mostly nude colors . It has a nice variety of pinks and browns . The last row of lip colors are made up of reds that range from cherry to berry red. The nude lip colors are lack luster . They are not the most pigmented . You have to swirl your finger around in the product a bit for them to show up . The reds are pretty pigmented . When I wear a lipstick that’s not a matte formula I look for it to be creamy and smooth . This lip product is not creamy , it’s actually very dry . I have tried to work with it because it was 24 bucks but I would not recommend this to anyone to buy . This is a miss for me . 


If you would like to see swatches of these products please fill free to click the link below :


As always I hope that this was helpful and comment below if you have either palette and if you like it or if you plan on getting it ! 
Thanks for reading and I’ll talk to you in another blog 😘

Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Review


maybelline-colossal-big-shot-thumbnail

 

Hey Guys ! I’m back with a mini review for you on this new product. There has been so much hyped buzzing around this mascara . The Maybelline Colossal Big shot mascara retails for $6.99 , I found mine at Target where they had a very large display . The packaging is too adorable for words . Metallic gold and purple (some of my favorite colors )  which is very eye catching .

I’m going to keep this short and sweet because I don’t have much to say . The brush is medium size which makes it difficult to apply to the bottom lash. The claims say that you achieve volume in one swipe , well that didn’t happen for me . In the picture above , that is the result of three coats with multiple strokes . The brush didn’t separate my lashes as well as I would have liked it to.  If I was planning on just wearing this mascara and not falsies , I would not apply anything less than three coats to make my lashes stand out.  After I applied the three coats I did notice length but not much volume.

I think this mascara is ok , and on a scale from 1 to 5 , I would give it a 3 . It’s not the worst but it’s not the best. It falls somewhere in the middle for me .   Please comment below if your thoughts , is it your new fave mascara ? Or is it not that special to you ? I would love to know what you all think 🙂
