What's In My Bag!? - #TheMakeupShowNYC Edition

On May 1st, 2016.... Something very, very special happened to me....

I was on the train heading to New York City to attend The Makeup Show NYC thanks to Influenster choosing me as their winner for #TheMakeupShowNYC Ticket Giveaway!!!!

Let's get to THE HAUL:

The Makeup Show NYC HAUL!!!!

Amika: Perk Up Dry Shampoo & Amika: Silken Up Dry Conditioner

Amika: is one of my favorites because not only are the reps nice, but their products are true quality - Don't forget, CUTE! I have fine, yet dense natural hair that I do not wash every single day, so this dry shampoo along with the conditioner (which is a genius idea), keeps my hair and scalp feeling super clean! Make sure to wash your hair after a few days of using this product to avoid build up. P.S. They also hooked me up with Tote bags and samples!!

Lashes in a Box - E1 ✨#TheMakeupShowNYC Exclusive✨ (Available November 2016)

I felt super special about this product because I had access to The Makeup Show "only" exclusive items such as these beautiful 10 pair sat of handmade lashes by LASHES IN A BOX! They will not be available to the public until November 2016, so I've been making these babies last!!

Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

This palette is a DREAM! Every color you could ever want or need is in this very palette. I had to snatch it up since we had a beautiful discount!! Plus, NYX was also giving away complimentary brushes with every purchase (you know I couldn't resist)!!!!

 

Full Throttle Lipstick - Trickster

NYX Full Throttle Lipstick - Trickster

It's matte; It's waterproof. It's vibrant with color. What more could you want? I was skeptical at first of this lipstick because of the cheap price, but I am so glad I was proved wrong. I prefer this brand over my other upscale lipsticks (and that's saying A Lot). Another thing is the bright purple: I'm not one to venture out on colors, especially unnatural ones such as "Trickster," but I found that it fits me. The goal is: "Wear the lipstick, but don't let the lipstick wear you."

Matte Setting Spray

NYX Matte Setting Spray

Nobody better EVER walk out of their house without setting their makeup. If you do, I WILL FIND YOU & I WILL SPRAY YOU... This particular spray lets your makeup last all day/night without any shine (this is for all you matte finish lovers our there).

 

 

 

OCC - Amber

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Eyeshadow Glitter - Amber

This is one of the first products I got to see walking into The Makeup Show, so I obviously had to check it out! (I'm a sucker for glitter)! As a beauty blogger, I cannot believe (and am embarrassed to say) that I haven't done a makeup tutorial with this yet, but Stay Tuned because that is sure to change!!

 

 

 

 

 

The Matte

The Matte!!!!

The Matte!!!!

Last but not least, The Matte has to be one of my most interesting finds. The owner was recently on the Today Show and talked about this new invention she came up with for women who didn't have vanities and needed a place to hold all of their makeup (besides the sink itself). I had to get this for the bathroom; and when I say it works, it works!! (Check out my Video Review ABOVE⬆️⬆️)!!

Until Next Time...

No More Falsies!?

I am very late on post this review (Sowwy), but it is here, nonetheless! 

I recently tried out Lash Factory's 300x 3D Fiber Lash Mascara, and I wanted to share my experience with you all on how it went. Below I have provided before/after photos and my YouTube Review of it, so you can see how to apply the mascara, etc.

Here's the kit!! It comes with clean mascara wands to separate your lashes and keep them from clumping.

Here's this inside look on the 300x Fiber Mascara! - Sleek, I know.

Here's me applying it like a crazy person.... Yes, I look crazy. DON'T JUDGE!

This is the result of one of my eyes using 3 coats of the holding gel and 2 coats fibers.

Here's the VIDEO of the entire review from Start to Finish!

NOTE: I do make a slight mess in the video with the fibers on my face lol! I would suggest doing the fiber mascara BEFORE applying foundation because it WILL STICK.

 

In my honest opinion, this mascara is really good! I feel that my lashes have gotten short (Too many falsies & glue, I must admit), so I'm not getting the results I'm truly looking for right now that I've gotten in the past with 3D Fiber Lash mascaras before wearing false eyelashes, so I am currently using a serum to regrow my lashes (which I will talk about later), so that this mascara will have an even more dramatic effect on my lashes! I have also seen this on other people, and it definitely has the potential to very dramatic and really make your eyes POP!! I look forward to doing my full makeup with this mascara in the future!

Make sure to check out all of there other products HERE!

Note: I did received this product complimentary int return for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

 

Have you ever tried any 3D Fiber Lash Mascaras?

If so, which ones were your favorites? 

Let me know your thoughts in the comment section!

 

Until Next time...
