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:

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.

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 Shalunya! You should definitely try a BH pallet and its best to catch them on sale!

  2. Great picks Andrea! MAC shadows and paint pots are awesome! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for stopping Tanya! They sure are awesome, just love them!

  3. So many great things Andrea!!! I love Essie polishes, and Carry On is gorgeous, I'll have to keep an eye for it!!


    1. Thank Lilly! I love Essie polishes too, hope to get some more soon!

  4. Gahh! So many pretty items! Where do I start? That polish is so pretty. It kinda reminds me of Essie's Jamaica Me Crazy. I love that BH palette! How is the and lasting power of the shadows? Do they blend easily? I want all your pressed shadows! Lol Love it

    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 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.

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid. 

(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh! 

You guys may see another appearance from my son, he is so silly and full of energy lol! I think I forgot to mention some favorites but you'll see them next month. What products have you tried? What were your thoughts? See you guys Thursday!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
