What’s Up With Putty Makeup??

Hello everyone,

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!

Lush Cosmetics: Twilight Review 

Hi everyone,

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!

Thank you for reading,

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!

Review: ‘Earth Bomb’ from Da Bath Fizzers 

Hello everyone,

I’m actually writing from the bath today because it’s a review on a bath bomb. And I think it’s my new obsession.

I got this bath bomb from Target titled ‘Earth Bomb.’ I’ve never heard of the brand before but at the same time I love it. I went on the company’s website and each bath bomb is about $6.50 which is almost the same cost as one from Lush.

I got the bath bombs from Target where they are half priced like $3 as their set price. I love that they have fun colors and they do actually fizz. Another bonus to the bombs is that each bomb has a toy or surprise inside.

I got a whale in my earth bomb because all the proceeds they’re donating to clean the world’s oceans which I find super amazing that they’re doing that. I have some other bombs from this company but I haven’t had the time to use them yet but I definitely will soon.

I think it also is so amazing that the founders of the company are two teenage girls, which is amazing and they’re so successful. Make sure to check their company out!

Birthday Haul

Hey everyone,

I have so much fun writing about beauty hauls and I also find myself having fun watching youtubers do haul videos-whether it be clothes or makeup, it’s just so fun. So I decided to write about this birthday haul. I am not trying to brag in any way, I just figured that maybe you guys will be entertained by it? Maybe? I don’t know, let’s get into it!

**I’m also listing the websites of where I got each item so you can check out those items also!***

1.) Pink Torn Shorts from Charlotte Russe

I love this store’s shorts because for me it is hard to find shorts that fit my figure and I don’t know if it’s just me but I hate when the waistbands of my pants are big to the point someone can stick something down them, I know it’s weird. So, I decided to get this pair of shorts because I don’t really own a lot of ripped shorts and I really like that style of shorts.

2.) Denim Shorts from Charlotte Russe

I really love denim shorts because of the fact that they go with any top of any style and design. I especially love refuge’s shorts because they’re soft and they fit me right.

3.) Chocolate Bon Bons Palette from Sephora

I went to the store in the mall and I saw this palette and I wanted it but also didn’t want to spend the money, but I decided why not? I slowly am escalating my makeup collection from drugstore products to higher brand products- but I am not ditching elf. I love this product because the colors are super fun and they have nude colors as well as some highlight colors and some fun vibrant colors. Not to mention the color smells like chocolate.

4.) Tarte’s Tartiest PRO Amazonian Clay Palette from Ulta

I got this palette as a birthday present from my parents. I might’ve mentioned this on the blog before, but I have been wanting this palette since I first got into makeup but I knew I would never get it because it is $53. The closer it got to my birthday the more hints I got from my mom that she was going to get it, but I played it cool. I watched videos on YouTube about this palette and a lot of beauty gurus hated this palette because ‘the colors smushed together’ but doesn’t any color do that anyways if you use too much of different colors? Well, I went to the Ulta store purposely to sample this product as well as some other face products and I used I think 3 different colors on my eye and I immediately loved it, and not because I had been wanting this palette for so long. I will go into more detail when I use this palette.

5.) Free Birthday Gift from Sephora!
Since I am a part of their email list, I got the exclusive offer to choose between a Tarte travel pack (that they give you) or another item from a brand I had never heard of before. So obviously I went for tarte because lately I have been obsessed with Tarte. In this gift I got a miniature matte lip paint which is named ‘birthday suit’ and a small blush called ‘parrty’ (I will post swatches on our Instagram @complicatedfashionblog) So, if anyone from Sephora is reading this blog, a big thank you to you for even having this offer, not a lot of stores do this and I think I actually do like Sephora a lot more.

Lush Bath Bomb Review

Hey everyone,

Welcome to this week’s post on The Complicated Fashion. I am going to do a review on the amazing Lush store, make sure to go check out their website http://www.lush.com or visit them in store.

Today I’m going to review their bath bomb ‘Guardian of the Forest.’ I had bought this a while ago but I haven’t been able to use it as I didn’t have a lot of time to. In the water, you watch the bath bomb break into a skinny piece consisting of mint green, lime green and yellow and by the end of the fizzing time it is a very emerald green color with tiny pieces of glitter.

This bath bomb is probably my favorite to date because of it’s coloring, scent, and their element to just make me relax while being nervous. This bath bomb’s scent does have an indescribable scent, it smells like the Lush store overall. I really like this bath bomb, I just can’t say it enough times. It is a little bit more expensive, but definitely worth it. I know that’s a cliché thing for a customer to say but it is true because I do really like this bath bomb and I will definitely buy it again.

I also want to put this out there that Lush isn’t sponsoring this post, I didn’t get this bath bomb for free, I did pay for this and I really did like it. I feel like I just needed to put that out there for the universe to see.

I am sorry I didn’t have a lot of diverse things to say about this product, but I hope you guys enjoyed it. Make sure to like this post and if you have any recommendations please comment them below and tell me! Also make sure to subscribe to this blog down below, I will be writing new posts for every Wednesday!

Thank you all for the wonderful support that this blog has been getting. This makes me so happy and motivated to write more overall because I know someone reads these blog posts.

Review: Essie Matte About You top coat polish

Hey everyone!

I hope you’re all doing well this super bowl weekend. About an hour or two ago and I used this top coat that my sister bought at target for $8.99 and it works so well! The container is clear and the polish is a white-creamy color.

It goes on and it looks shiny but within five minutes your polished nails have a matte-finished look and it’s so smooth! The only problem I have experienced using this product is if you use it before your polish isn’t fully dry.

With me, my polish was almost dry and the polish smeared a little when I applied this top coat. I recommend to anyone who does nail art or just enjoys painting their nails.

I apologize for this short entry, I am super tired and just come up with this idea a few minutes ago. This polish overall goes on super nicely, it dries quickly and keeps the polish from chipping or getting destroyed in other ways.

Recent Makeup Haul!

Hey guys!

What’s up? Today I want to write about a recent makeup haul that I went on this past weekend. I went to an e.l.f. store! E.l.f. is my favorite makeup brand because it’s super cheap and their makeup is good quality. I finally got the chance to go to the store rather than their section in Target.

I spent $16.00 there and that actually isn’t a lot when we’re talking about makeup. So in this post I just wanted to talk about these products and review them in case any of you guys are interested.

Product #1- Powder Brush

This brush works very well when I use my powder veil (finishing powder). It is super soft and is a lot easier to use than some expensive brushes. Elf does make a more expensive powder brush that I think might be more expensive, I have the cheaper one that is all black and it definitely does the job.

Product #2- Liquid Highlighter

I tested this product in store and it is very sparkly. I had recently used this product as part of my everday makeup look and it made more oil in it than the highlighting formula. Putting it on my face made my face look very oily and greasy and I didn’t like it. But, I will continue to give it a try.

Product #3- Highlighting Brush

I have been in need of a highlighter brush, I wanted to get one from Elf because it is a lot cheaper. I used it on my powder highlighter and I was so surprised by how well it works. The glitter comes right off the brush and onto my face. It didn’t get stuck in the bristles.

Product #4- Eyeshadow Palette

This eyeshadow palette is a nice addition to the collection. I got this because I needed more nude colors rather than fun bright colors. This palette actually tells you where to put it on your lids. In each color it has a word carved on it ‘base, lid, crease, line’ I found it very helpful because I usually only use one color on my eyes at a time. The colors are VERY pigmented. Make sure to blend well!

That is my haul! Make sure to check out e.l.f.’s website to check out their products and their amazing prices! I am very happy with their products and I always have so much fun using them!
