Good Molecules eye gel

A while back Good Molecules gifted me a few of their most popular products and since then I’ve been interested in trying more products.

If you don’t know what Good Molecules is, it’s the affordable skincare brand sold on Beautylish.

They offer a nice variety of products to fit different skin concerns without being overwhelming.

Today I’m talking about the Yerba Mate Wake Up Eye Gel. (not gifted)

I was initiag surprised at this squeeze tube packaging. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an eye cream come in thus type of packaging but you know what? I like it! I like the idea of being able to squeeze out the very last bit of the product, haha.

Even though I knew it was a gel, the texture itself surprised me as well.

The only thing I can compare it to in looks and expectation is vasaline. But, it’s not actually anything like it.

The gel went on nice and smooth and quickly absorbed into my skin. The yerba mate is used to achieve more radiant, energized skin.

Like with all skin products, I’ll need to continue to use this to see the lasting effects but for now, at $6US, I would definitely recommend trying this eye gel.

WetNWild Incognito Concealer

I recently picked up the new Mega Last Incognito All-Day Full Coverage Concealer, available for $4.99US on their website, and I have been loving it!

Available here

It provides medium to full coverage, blends out smoothly and doesn’t make my under eyes look cakey.

It wears well under setting powder and really lasts all day.

Its available now in 21 shades.

KISS Lashes and Glue

I don’t wear lashes often because I’m not a fan of waiting for the glue to dry, or worse, you wait only to find out you didn’t shake well enough, or waited too long or it’s still too wet.

I used the KISS Felt Tip Glue Liner Lash Adhesive and the lashes were so easy to apply! My mom was wish me as I was using it for the first time and mentioned her friend uses the liner glue and had told her it was easy but I didn’t believe it. This felt like I touched the lashes down and they were on!



Since the glue is in black, all I had to do was apply where I would my liner and pop the lashes on! It was so easy and comfortable. The felt tip made the liner super easy to apply too.

Available at Ulta

The lashes I used are KISS My Lashes but better in Blessed. The band is clear and nice and flexible. They were easy to trim down, apply and remove and clean. They were very lightweight even though they added a nice amount of volume.

Available at Ulta

The only downside to the glue is that I applied my mascara first so applying liner after can clump up my lashes. To avoid this, I waited until the mascara was dry, applied the liner glue then ran a clean mascara brush through my lashes to seperate tnem

I would definitely recommend both these products!

Kiss Impress Press On Nails

In the past I’ve used press on nails with varying results.

In general, I don’t get my nails done but during lock down I started making time to paint my nails. The thing is, I hate the process of painting my nails, removing the nail polish and painting them again.

I’ve been toying with the idea of using press on nails again so when I received this package I was excited to see it came with a few options.

I thought about waiting until we get back from our vacation but I realized, this is when people get their nails done right? So here we go.

The pack comes with 30 indivual nails to help ensure you have nails that fit your own nails.

I went with the shorter dusty rose imPress nails. These come “pre-glued”, you pull the protective piece off the back of the nail and press onto your nail.

I was able to find nails that fit my own pretty easily and applying them was also easy. I should add, I clipped my nails short and I used the prep wipe provided in the pack.

I’m not 100% convinced the press glue will hold, and I’ll probably pack a backup glue and nail polish for emergencies.

My biggest concerns are index finger because my nails grow at a curve so there’s less surface area to grab onto.

One this I wish would be included with the pack is a way of filling the gaps between the press on nail and your own nail.

I’m not sure what this would be, maybe glue or something in a tube that could be applied between the gaps.

I used the mini file provided to file down the little tab that’s on the tips of some of the nails and to shape them more to my liking.

Overall I’m happy with the look of the nails and the application process.

I still try to provide an update here in the stories section and /or on my Instagram.

Colourpop Sandstone look

Sandstone is one of my favorite palettes despite having so many of the matte with tiny glitter shades.

I think the mattes with the glitter apply nicely and blend easily. If you tap your brush you can tap off most of the loose glitter. You can also apply the color with a brush then tap it on with your finger to apply/keep the glitter on. I wound also recommend using a glitter or loose pigment primer.

I love the metallics/shimmers in this palette and love this color story in general. Here is a step by step on this look.

The palette is currently on sale for $11 as part of Colourpop’s “last call” sale so if you’re interested, now’s the best time to buy!

Purple shimmer look

Recently I’ve gotten more into single shadows and depotting my palettes.

I love being able to see so many options to chose from.

Sydney Grace, Coloured Raine, Makeup Geek and Colourpop

Buying singles also gives me the opportunity to try more brands, especially indie brands that only sell single shadows.

This is also a great way to utilize more than one palette and brand.

For than look I used the following shadows:

  • Colourpop – Zested, West Side
  • Makeup Geek – Cocoa Bear, Steampunk
  • Sydney Grace – Golden Wheat, Aim High

To bring out a little more of the lilac I used Colourpop Piggy Bank gel liner.

I’d love to know what others think of using singles!

NYX Ultimate Utopia Vol II

In my previous post I mentioned a friend selected colors for my to use from the NYX Utopia palette and here is a second look from another suggestion

  • I used 1 to set my base, from my crease to my brow.
  • Applied 2 to the crease to deepen it
  • I applied 3 to the outer 1/3 of my lid
  • Applied NYX glitter primer to the rest of my lid and using my finger, applied 4
  • Used 5 in the center, over 4, to tone down the teal a little
  • Applied 6 all across the lower lash
  • Used 7 to darker the lower lash outer edge

I loved the way this look came out. I’ve really been enjoying using color stories suggested by others.

PS I tried the tiktok lip liner trick and…it’s not my thing. Lol!

NYX Ultimate Utopia

As soon as I saw this color story I was on love! Too bad regular price the palette is $35. I’m not sure why but to me that seems like too much to pay for a NYX palette despite the amount of shades offered

Purchase here

I ended up having to wait a few months for the palette to go on sale and when it finally did I paid about $25 for it, in case you’re like me and don’t want to pay the full price.

I do love the color story, and the products are easy to blend, durable and the metallics are gorgeous.

Here I went with something fast and simple but was about to make it exciting by using the lime green yellow

I started with 1 in my crease, softly blending it out and very lightly building it up until I achieved the color I wanted

I darker the outer V of my lid with 2 and lightly swept it into the crease

Then I applied NYX glitter primer in the remaining 2/3 of my lids and applied 3 to the center portion and 4 to the inner 1/3. I blended between the two to avoid a hard line.

I used a little bit of 5 to blend 3 into 2.

For my lower lash I used 6 so over the lower lash and 7 tight against my lash line.

I asked friends to select colors for me to use and this incorporated two options.

What do you think of this palette?

Are there any looks you’d like to see? Feel free to DM me on Instagram a screen shot selecting colors if it’s a palette without color names!

Colourpop Misunderstood Palette Look Vol III

This isn’t a palette that I look at and immediately have a look pop out at me but I’m always able to put together a look that I love.

This was a very simple look but the shimmers are so pretty and really pop.

I lightly packed Devious in the crease and blended up to the brow. I applied Sing to the outer V of my eyelid, Underworld to the center and Pain and Panic to the inner 1/3.

I used my fingers to apply the shimmers and then I took small brushes to softly blend the shimmers together.

I took a small fluffy brush and brushed back and forth in the crease, with no additional product, to blend the shimmers.

I went back and packed on a little more Devious to the outer V to bring back some depth.

What are your thoughts on this palette? What kind of look would you do or would you like to see next?
