Thursday Reviews: Setting Powders

Happy Thursday! Can you believe that September is here?? That means it's time for football, pumpkins, Fall makeup and fashion!! Today's review is going to be on a couple setting powders that I have been trying out. I never used to set my under eye concealer and with this craze of setting powders and highlighting, I couldn't resist!! Let's get into the reviews!

Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Banana

This is the most talked about setting powder! I have heard everyone and their mother talking about this! This was one of the first setting powders that I purchased. I got this the first year I went to The Makeup Show Holiday Pop Up. Funny thing is, this sat for a while before I picked it up and used it. I was a little afraid of using it and thought it was going to be too bright for me. I actually really liked this. I'm still getting used to the whole highlighted look but this is pretty good one. You just have to be careful of how much you use or it can be too bright.

Makeup Forever Micro HD Powder

I got this setting powder from Sephora after racking up 100 points. This was the first translucent powder I've tried out. This little jar has a lot of product and will last me for a while. This is my second favorite setting powder. I really like how subtle the highlight was and how well it set my concealer. I would most likely purchase the full size.

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder

This is my favorite setting powder that I've tried out so far. This has to be the second most talked about powder. I love how flawless and highlighted my under eye area looks and how my concealer doesn't crease at all. This setting powder is just amazing!!

I would like to try the Sasha Buttercup powder sometime soon because it is another one that is highly raved about.

So that is it for the review on setting powders. What is your favorite one? Have you tried any of the ones mentioned? Comment below and let me know. Hope you enjoy the holiday weekend and see you guys Sunday.

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…

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.
