Beauty Crown Awards~ Week 4~ Eyes & Misc Products








The Beauty Crown Awards are a yearly favorites collaborative effort including beauty bloggers around the globe. The Beauty Crown Awards were created by Lily from Beauty with Lily Liz from My Pretty Obsessions, Jackie from Five Two Certified, and Shalunya from Shalunya & Boyet. We felt that a collaborative effort from a large number of beauty bloggers would be much more interesting to our readers and would garner more attention. The Beauty Crown Awards are a 5 week event with each week covering types of products.

Week 1 - Personal Care Products - Dec 2 - Dec 8, 2013
Week 2 - Facial Products - Dec 9 - Dec 15, 2013
Week 3 - Lip & Nail Products - Dec 16 - Dec 22, 2013
Week 4 - Eye & Misc Products - Dec 23 - Dec 29, 2013
Week 5 - Facial Care Products & Tools - Dec 30 - Jan 4, 2014

Week 4 of the Beauty Crown Awards covers Eye & Misc Products. Below are my Week 4 selections:

EYES
Primer- MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork
I've seen a lot of makeup artists on You Tube using the paint pot as an eyeshadow base and I love it. My shadow stays put and it doesn't crease at all. This also doubles as a neutral shadow for me.

Pressed Shadows- MAC
This is just a fraction of the Mac eyeshadows I own, lol! I just love them so much! It sometimes gets overwhelming when I'm looking for a new color because they have so many pretty colors to choose from!

Pigments- MAC Pressed Pigment in Blonde Streak
This pigment is so pretty! I just love how it looks and how you can wear very lightly or pack it on heavy for extra shimmer!(Guess you can tell I love MAC, lol!)


Mascara- Tarte Lights Camera Lashes
This is the best mascara I have ever tried!! I just fell in love the first time I tried and haven't stopped using it since! I just love how full, long and just how amazing my lashes look. Sometimes I don't even have to wear false lashes because they look so good!

Eyeliner-Wet and Wild Cream Liner
This is my new favorite go to eyeliner. I just love how easy it is to apply and how dark it is. It stays on all day and doesn't smudge at all.

Cream Shadows- I don't own any cream shadows but welcome to suggestions on some good ones to try!!

Palette- BH Cosmetics
I have 3 of these pallets and I just love all the colors! There are so many colors to create endless looks with. Plus they are so pigmented, bright and just look so good!



Brow Kit- MAC Spiked Pencil and NYX Brow Kit
I normally just use Spiked pencil for my brows but I recently picked up this NYX Brow Kit and I love it. My brows look very natural and full when I use these two products together.


MISC
Beauty Magazine- Essence
Just love all the beauty and hair products they recommend to try out, tips from makeup artists and hairstylist and just anything that is in the magazine!

Beauty Subscription- Birchbox
I just love this box. I love the variety of products that I get to try every month. I get to try everything from facial care, perfume, makeup and I love when they throw treats in the box too, lol! I don't mind the sample size products because I like to try things out to see if I will like it before I purchase!

Beauty Product from Subscription- Essie Carry On
This was my first Essie polish that I got in a special Goop Birchbox sometime last year I think. I was so happy because I've been debating on spending the money to try Essie out and I got in my Birchbox! I love the Raisin color, its perfect for fall.

  1. Essie Carry On is a gorgeous color! I love MAC shadows too. I own plenty! But I don't own any BH palettes! I hear good things but I've just never taken the plunge. I haven't tried the WnW cream liner either, I should definitely try it! Great picks! Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. Thanks Rhondine! The shadows for BH cosmetics last a long time, they don't fade at all. They do blend pretty easy, I just love all the colors I can use!

  5. Thanks for the recommendations! I have wondered about that Tarte mascara...I love everything I've tried from them and have always been curious about their mascara:) I also love the wet n wild Fergie collection, but have so much gel liner that I didn't pick this one up...The Essie color is also perfect for Fall...my daughter is obsessed with Essie so I know she would love it!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Lucy! I was hearing so many things about Tarte mascara and it was on sale during Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty and I just love it so much! That liner is the only thing that I have from the Fergie collection but I would like to try out more.

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!



I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
