Make Beauty Review*

Happy Friday beauty lovers! I hope you have been enjoying Winter again lol! I hope Mother Nature gets it together soon lol. Today I am bringing you another review powered by BrandBacker! *I was sent these products for testing purposes and this is my opinion after using. Let's get into the reviews!

*Powered By BrandBacker*

I was pretty excited when I was picked for this campaign. I have tried a Make Beauty eyeshadow before and loved it. Honestly, I was expecting the samples to be a little bigger. I was a little disappointed in the lipstick sample, it was hard to use. It kept breaking when I was trying to apply it. Make Beauty is a very new company to me that I was introduced to through Birchbox.  They have just about everything from eyeshadows to contour kits. They also have a line for skincare as well.

Alabaster Eyeshadow

This shadow on the Make Beauty site is described as a soft eggshell with peach undertones. This shadow is a matte and can be used as a brow highlight or on the lid. I created a look using this shade on my lid. I love how smooth and pigmented the shadow is. It blends out well and stays put all day. I really liked the shadow.

Taffy Silk Cream Lipstick

The color of this lipstick is described as a medium pink with a purple undertone. It also doubles as a lip conditioner for your lips. This lipstick is pretty pigmented and has a pretty good wear time. It is not drying at all and comfortable on the lips. I really liked this lipstick and the formula.

The full size eyeshadows run for 25.00 and the lipsticks for 25.00 as well. Overall I really enjoyed using both products, not sure if I would purchase the full size but pretty curious about the other products the brand has. You can check out Make Beauty for yourself RIGHT HERE!!

Here are a couple pictures of the look I created using both products

So that is it for this Make Beauty review Have you tried any of these products before? Comment below and let me know. Have a great weekend again and see you Tuesday!!

Have you checked out my previous post on my Spring Walmart Beauty Box??


  1. The lipsticks looks a real pretty neutral -natural tone. Very pretty.

    1. Thank you Trina!! Sometimes I do like a neutral lip to wear.

  2. I love the color of the lipstick. However, it kind of looks like it's about to fall out of its packaging. :]

    1. I forgot to take pictures before using the lipstick lol! It was a little hard to work with but the color is so pretty! Thanks for stopping by Carmen!

  3. that sounds like a fun brand to try--lucky u!! love the lipstick color

    1. It was and I really like the lipstick color too! Thanks for reading Elle!!

  4. Gorgeous look! These products look and sound really nice! I love that shade of lipstick!

    1. Thanks Pilar!! I really like them, I love getting the chance to try new makeup brands! Thank for stopping by!

  5. Glad these colors worked for you. The lip color is pretty but that stinks it broke. I agree about the sample size. I received them but oped out of writing about them because I don't think they ever mentioned they were not normal sized products. "Samples"on brand backer are normally full sized products from what I have experienced.

    1. Yea I was expecting full size products as well. I didn't mind the eyeshadow but yea that lipstick lol!! Thanks for reading Tanya!!

  6. The lipstick looks pretty! It sucks they couldn't even send out full size products instead of sample size ones to get the full on experience of their products.

    1. Yea, if it had to be a sample size, I wish it was a little bigger. Thanks for reading Jackie!!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
