I just have a few things this month so let’s get into it. I feel like July flew by. Maybelline 24hr color tattoo in bad to the bronze. I love this product.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains review +...
Wow that title was long! Alright lets get into it. I recently picked up 2 of the revlon balm stains because everyone has been talking about them. The first shade I picked up was Darling, for some reason I have been drawn to lilacs.However this is definitely on the pink side. I think it is a pretty color for everyday wear.

1. EOS lip balm sweet mint, love this stuff, I keep it in my bag at all times. 2. elf eyelid primer, I find that this $1 primer is a dupe for some of the more expensive eyelid primers out there. 3. Naked palettes, this month I’ve pretty much only used these two palettes. If you are a neutral eye fan, these palettes are worth the money. 4. elf flat liner brush, this brush was included...

1. Cetaphil lotion: I LOVE this stuff! I have very sensitive skin and this moisturizer has never irritated my skin in any way. I’ve been using it for a few years now and it never fails me. Lately I have been mixing some of my concealer with the lotion creating my own tinted moisturizer, which is great for summer. This lotion can be a little pricey around $15-20 depending on the size but to...
For this simple nail look I used three main colors:a basic black, sally hansen insta-dri in whirlwind wind as well as slick slate. For the in between colors I just mixed some of the grey color with the white and some black with the grey. I think its a simple way to make your nails pop! TinK xX

Jane Mojave shimmering bronzer: This bronzer is cool because you have all the different shades that can be...
Bath and Body Works Haul

Here are a few of my favorite products that I have used consistently this month: Aussie 3 minute miracle deep conditioner: I mentioned this item in my hair care routine and I love it! Seriously I underestimated this conditioner I just added some blonde highlights to my hair and despite how harsh bleach can be this conditioner left my hair silky smooth. I even skipped the $30 macademia repair...

Hair care routine
Hi guys, I wanted to do a quick post on my hair care routine. So here goes lets start with shampoo. Within the last month I have switched to Suave humectant moisture shampoo. I have highlighted my hair and it has definitely helped put some moisture back into my hair. Next I have already blogged about the macademia deep repair masque so I won’t go into depth about it, but just say that...
I ordered a few things from ELF last week and I wanted to share them. The first thing I ordered was the flawless finish foundation in sand. Which I have written about on here before. I absolutely love this foundation and have used it so much I needed to order another one. I tried using a maybelline foundation but its just not the same. I also love that it only costs $6. Next I really wanted to...
Macademia natural oil deep repair mask review
I just used this repair mask today for the first time. I have had my eye on it for a while but kept putting off buying it because of the price. It costs 30 dollars and to me that just seemed like too much. However I was able to find it on Amazon for $17 and I also had an amazon gift card so I figured I should finally go ahead and buy it. Recently I have started highlighting my hair and that...
A couple of reviews
Hi guys so I thought I would talk about two products I picked up. The first is the revlon lip butter in creme brulee. I really didn’t expect much out of this product. But I was surprised by how much I like it. Its very moisturizing, more so than maybellines baby lips. and gives you great color pay off. I really like this nude color, but I would like to try one of the pinks as well. ...
Lets talk rollers & L'oreal Elnett hair spray...
I have found myself addicted to rollers lately, I have a set of hot rollers and jumbo Velcro ones. I love the Velcro rollers because of the volume they give, but my hair is so straight and flat that I need a good amount of time to let them set. So when I’m in a hurry I use my trusty conair hot rollers. Today I used my rollers and thought I would share with you guys how I use them. ...
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Hi guys, so I know I’m really late on this but I just got the urban decay naked palette and will be getting the naked 2 soon. There are already so many reviews and tutorials with this palette. But I just wanted to come in quick and say a few things. I love that it comes with the priming potion (I’m not sure why the naked 2 doesn’t). The colors are all so gorgeous and pigmented....
it aint easy being green.
green is the new pink. i swear. or was it black? anywho. i, like the effervescent miss piggy, get a little warm and fuzzy over green so it stands to reason i would include it in all aspects of my life. including makeup. i went to mac (as per usual) and picked up a few grassy hues: pro longwear eyeshadow in fresh flare and eyeshadows in greensmoke and plumage (plumage is matte. only problem....
