Helpful Hint: Contact Solution

So you all know that you use contact solution for contacts, but did you know you can also use it to remove your eye makeup. It works great if you want to just remove a little bit without smearing all your makeup. All you have to do is put some on a q tip. If you want to remove makeup from your whole eye just use a cotton ball with it. Hope you enjoyed this helpful hint!

Fall Shoes

YAY! I'm going to Forever 21 on Sunday and I will be looking for some stuff that is in fashion for fall. Here are some shoes I will def be looking for.

I always need some new flats for fall! I think these would look so cute with a simple tank, sweater and skirt combo. $14.80

These would be great for the whole equestrian trend. I would pair these with a button down shirt (add a belt in the bettle for super cuteness.) and a ruffled skirt. $34.80

Simple sandals look great with jeans and a blouse. You can also hit the camel trend since these are camel colored. $18.80

If you guys want me to do a forever 21 haul of what I get from there just comment.

Target Makeup Haul

Elf Complexion Brush, Maybelline Falsies Mascara, Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer, Elf  Shimmering Facial Whip, Pixi Lip Booster, Elf Fan Brush. 

When a went to Target with my mom, I picked a few things that I had been wanting. If you'd like a review on anything just leave a comment or send me a message. Enjoy!

1. Elf Studio Complexion Brush $3- OMG! I love this, it's so soft. I hate me regular elf face brushes, so I wasn't going to get this. But I am sooo glad I did. The studio line seems much better, and I will def be buying more of their studio brushes. 10/10

2. Maybelline "The Falsies Volum' Express" Mascara $5.66- I really like this, the brush has a different cool shape. I got it in the shade Brownish Black and Waterproof. I don't think it's amazing but I really like it. 8/10

3. Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer $5.84- I like this but I think it's better using it on larger spaces, rather then small blemishes because it makes them look a little puffy. I got this in shade cream light 4-5 7/10

4. Elf Shimmering Facial Whip $1- On the back it says it can be used on lips, eyes and face highlighting. I love this for my lips because it doesn't give you the stickiness of lip gloss (you can't feel it on your lips) because it's a stainish type thing. It has a citrusy smell and taste. I got this in the shade Lilac Petal. 9/10

5. Pixi Lip Booster $4 (clearance from $16)- This is a really nice lip gloss that you pump up. I guess it's a lip booster too. I got this in shade Theena. Check your clearance bins at Target for clearance makeup. 9/10

6. Elf Fan Brush $3- This is another Elf Studio Brush. I don't like this one as well as The Complexion Brush, but it is still nice. It is a little to flimsy, it needs to be thicker. 7/10

Hope you enjoyed the haul! Again if you want a review on anything just comment. +Also thank you so Hannah Griffiths for subscribing! Even if I only have 1 subscriber I will keep posting, because I know at least one person finds me useful.

Review: Palladios Herbel Eyeshadow Primer

Review: Palladios Herbel Eyeshadow Primer
Price- $8
Pros- Cheap, Keeps eyeshadows lasting all day
Cons- Can't think of any!
Where to buy- Ulta

The only eyeshadow primer that I ever hear people hype about is Urban Decays Primer Potion. I have never tried it but I've been told that this compares to it. I much rather pay $8 than $18 (price of primer potion). This works great and will make your eyeshadow last all day, maybe I will take pics of how my eye makeup look in the morning and then again in the evening.

10/10 A must buy!

Save or Splurge: Clinique's Tinted Moisturizer vs. Covergirl Aqua Smoothers

Top- Covergirl  Bottom- Clinique
Save or Splurge: Clinique's Mositure Sheer Tint vs. Covergirl Aqua Smoothers (tinted moisturizers)
Price- Clinique = $27 Covergirl  = $6.79
Pros- Clinique=Nice light weight feel, SPF 15  Covergirl= Nice price SPF 15
Cons- Clinique= Pricey, comes in only 3 shades. Covergirl- A bit watery
Should you save or splurge on tinted moisturizer? I thought that Cliniques was very nice and light weight. The only thing that threw me off was the color selection, it only comes in 3 shades! The shades are Fair, Neutral and Beige. I purshased Fair (lightest color) which as you can see the picture is i'm not really fair. So any girls that have light skin tones then me could not get this. They also don't have any shades for darker skin tones. The shade selection really disapointed me. Covergirl's was a bit watery and did not apply as well as Clinique's. But atleast they had a few more shades than Clinique. (I am shade light to medium) They carry shades for light, medium and dark skin tones. The price is also amazing!

I would pick Clinique if one of the three colors matches your skin, annd you cann afford the hefty price.
If your skin doesn't match or you don't want to spend alot of $$$ then Aqua Smoothers will work.

Clinique- 9/10
Covergirl- 7/10

Review For: Yoyo Lipgloss

Review For: Yo Yo Lipgloss
Price- $3.49 each
Pros- Cute rectractable cord, Good taste
Cons- A little sticky
I was sent these lip glosses on my old blog which was canceled and I never got to do a review on them so I'm doing one now. These glosses are definitely aimed toward the younger crowd (10 and under). They come in cute names like Cha-Cha Chocolate, Big Bounce Bubble Gum, Girly Green Apple, and Kissable Kiwi. I was sent them all but since I was sent them a while ago I misplaced two. The white one in the pic is Big Bounce Bubble Gum and the Pink one is Kissable Kiwi. The retractable string is really cool. But the glosses are a bit to sticky for me. I would recommend these for maybe like a younger kids goody bag or you could get them as a nice gift for a younger sister!
