Welcome back to my blog, I just decided to write my thoughts about a topic in the news right now, girls clothing store Justice, is currently under fire because of their highlighting powder formula containing asbestos! For those of you who don’t know, asbestos is mostly found in soils and rocks, but they can cause lung diseases as well as tumors and and other types of cancers.
I’ve read somewhere that this formula also contained toxic metals. I don’t know how true those articles are, but right now Justice is yanking all of the makeup items off of their shelves to properly be tested and cleared of any harmful ingredients!
I feel like I should post this because if there’s any aspiring beauty gurus who wanted to film a ‘full face of kids’ makeup video, just steer away from Justice, you can try Toys R Us, Amazon or Claire’s. I personally am super shocked to hear this news because when I was young, I used to shop at Justice. But, at the time they didn’t sell makeup, they sold clothes and maybe lotion.
What do you all think of this shocking headline? Tell me in the comments!

I am so sorry for not posting! It has been a crazy past couple of weeks, I’ve been sick for about three weeks, and my sister broke her leg and I have also been working on something super special that I will announce in a few days, but today I wanted to talk about this odd makeup trend that I’ve been seeing a lot of.
I know slime was a huge deal, everyone of all ages made slime and it was probably the weirdest trend because of how obsessive everyone was over it. I personally wasn’t a fan, but I know my younger sister loved it and still does.
I don’t know if this trend was seen by makeup companies and they decided to make putty makeup to try to appeal to a younger crowd or what but I decided I wanted to rant about this.
A few weeks ago, I saw Jeffree Star do a video on putty makeup and then I saw Tati on YouTube do a video on it as well, Jeffree Star mostly stayed on one product by Stila and talked about the Heaven’s Hue Highlighter which is a little gummy, I haven’t gotten the chance to go to Sephora to feel it for myself but from what I can see on the internet and through videos, it does look like a stunning highlighter. Personally, I am very fascinated with the fact that Stila as well as some other brands are stranding away from the traditional highlighting formula and they’re going for a more gummy consistency, I feel like as long as the product does what it’s supposed to, then it’s fine.
Next, I saw Tati’s video and she talked about two products from Elf cosmetics, which is their blush and bronzer duo, which often enough is considered a dupe for the Nars duo, and one of Elf’s newest launches, Ultra Pigment Cushion Eyeshadow Palette which retails for $12 and comes in two color options, Island Breeze which is more of a warm tone palette, including gold, browns and some burgundy colors. The other option is Cool Mist, which includes more blue and copper colors. I got the chance to swatch Cool Mist and to me it felt like a satin palette, definitely not gummy at all. But, when Tati posted her video, she was able to stick her fingerprint in there and it molded the pigments!
Like I said earlier in this entry, I don’t really care if the product is gummy or any other texture, as long as it’s a good product and does it’s job correctly than that’s all that matters. As someone who loves makeup and always wants to try something new, I say that this would be fun to try out because it isn’t your ordinary product and that’s something that makes these products so much more different. I wouldn’t be surprised if more companies will start taking part in this putty trend.
I am sorry for not posting, I am definitely getting back into the trend of things again!

Welcome back to my blog, I’m writing my first draft (which is what you’ll probably see) in my bath tub because I’m reviewing this bath bomb, this is my first impression!
I got this bath bomb, ‘twilight’ and I really thought it would be super cool, which it is. It started off baby pink, but soon it turned a dark purple, and the finished water doesn’t end the same as usual Lush bath products, you can still see through the water, usually the color is so rich you don’t even see through it.
It does take a long time to get the bomb to fully dissolve too, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, some bath bombs dissolve after five minutes, this took like 20 minutes to dissolve. The bath bomb does smell really good, but this is definitely unique for lush as it differs significantly from lush’s other bath bombs.
Overall, I have mixed feelings. Maybe I just got the weaker one of the batch. Or maybe it’s just something I have to expect when using other bath bombs I have never used before. I do recommend though, despite my expectations and experiences.
If any of you have used this product before and you’ve had other opinions or experiences, feel free to comment them, to give fellow readers other insight of what this product can be!

P.s. I decided to add this in after I got out of the bath and looked at my feet and bath tub and there is a ton of glitter, I didn’t know there was any until I got out, so if you don’t like glitter residue on your body or tub, don’t use this product!
Today I decided to write about this one hack I saw online that can help you with any occasion. I decided to write about broken nails because lately it’s been a trend to wear acrylic nails, so I figured it’ll be helpful for you guys to know about this hack.
Broken Fingernail? Follow these steps!
- Medium fine buffer the nail that is broken, do not rip the broken part off!
- Take some regular nail glue and apply some right around and on the tear.
- Next, just take a tiny piece of mesh or other stretchy material and use a tweezer to apply it on top of the tear.
- Using the tweezers, apply the material on top of the glue which should be on top of the tear.
- Apply more nail glue on top of the material, don’t be afraid of using too much.
- After the glue is dried completely, buff the material into shape with your fingernail.
- Next, using the same file you’ve been using to buff, file down the edges of your nail that may be sharp.
- Gently buff the material more until it starts to be smooth.
- The piece should be totally smooth and if it isn’t keep buffing it.
- After you’re done buffering, rinse the finger gently to help remove nail shavings that may be stuck in the material.
- Add a layer of nail glue on top and let it air dry.
- Buffer everything smooth and let the nail glue dry.
- After everything’s dry you’re safe to apply the top coat of nail polish and then paint them like always and no one will be able to know that your nail broke!

Welcome back to my blog. I’m sorry for not posting last week, I was busy and at a loss of post ideas. I do know prom season is finally here and in my area, most schools have already had their prom, but if you live in a different area or state or country and you still don’t know what to do for prom, then keep reading for simple makeup you can do at home!
Look #1: The Eyes that match the dress
This look mostly revolves around the eyes, you can do what ever else you want for this look. This is more of a last minute kind of eye look if you don’t really know what to do. If your dress is blue you can do an ombre blue eye look. This look is totally up to you and how you want to approach this eye look.
Look #2: The Photogenic Look
I recommend you use photogenic foundation, my favorite is from NYX but it is $17, if you can’t find or afford photogenic makeup, just try to find foundation that doesn’t have any SPF in it, because during your prom pictures you’ll get flash back and you don’t want that. I also recommend you avoid baking your face and avoid powder because that also causes flash back. However, if you want a glowy kind of look, use any kind of highlighter and apply a small amount on to your cheek bones, and also add some highlight to your arms so they look shiny (but not oily). Next, you just contour your cheeks like always using what ever bronzer/contour you want and if you want to, contour your arms so in your pictures they’ll look more muscular.
Look #3: The Nude Eyes
The final look for this entry- the safe look which is the nudes. Follow the same steps as Look #2 for the face, but for your eyelids, just apply some nude colors from your favorite nude palette, the shadows can be shimmery or matte, apply a nice thick wing to your eyeshadow, if you want to do something on your lower-lashline, I recommend you only use black eyeliner and do not use eyeshadow on the lower-lashline because in your pictures it can give the effect that you were crying and you definitely don’t want to cry on the night of prom.
There you guys go, my first and probably only prom entry. I hope you all have/had fun at prom! I hope you guys liked these look ideas, you can always use them for other events that involve pictures with flash being taken because you definitely don’t want flashback!

First of all, I do not own this palette, but I have swatched and applied the palette on while at Sephora and I have seen beauty gurus reviewing this product and decided to put my opinion out there as well. I am not saying my opinion is better or any of that, but this is another opinion for you all to read about before possibly purchasing this item.
I did like it as a highlighter, I used the purple color, and I used my finger to apply these items to my face and my finger didn’t have any other product on it beforehand. I put the green and other colors onto my lid and each color just looked white, they didn’t have anything super special about them. It looked like the white shadow I use for my inner corner highlight. The purple wasn’t purple either, however it was more silver and closer to holo than the other colors.
I definitely think that this palette isn’t holographic but I think it is more of a highlight palette than an eyeshadow/cheek palette. If you don’t know what holographic things are, I recommend you go to SimplyNailogical’s channel on youtube, she talks about holographic nail polish a lot on her channel and likes to play with those polishes on that channel.
But, I think this was actually the first product I haven’t liked and reviewed on this blog! But of course, make sure to go watch other beauty gurus on youtube and read more reviews on this palette and trust your judgement about if this product is worth your purchase or not.
