Toddler Makeup Life

Makeup Play

+ Disclosure – I received these products for review, all opinions are my own. + Every little kid loves to get into mommies personal things, am I right?  The vanity setup is just a playground for kids, & they will pull out every palette, brush, or lipstick that they can get their little hands on. After all, they just want to be like mommy, they just want to do EVERYTHING mommy does. But if you’re a mother like me, you don’t want your 4 year old child to be putting actual makeup on her face. (To each their own, this is just my decision.) I own a lot of makeup, and...

January IPSY bag Products & Review

This month’s Ipsy bag is all about refreshing and clean simple makeup. It is January of course, who doesn’t like a fresh start over on their face & makeup? The Products First of all I have to talk about the bag, it is one of my favorites. The simplicity of it’s design allows me to throw it in my purse, or take on travel. Don’t get me wrong, I love most of the bags but as far as ever really using them, if the design is a little out there I most likely won’t be putting it to everyday use. I love trying new brushes, and I really can’t have...

Maybelline Colossal Big Shot #LashlikeBoss

+ I received these products free or complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes Maybelline is one of my favorite go-to’s for drugstore brands. Their newest mascara, the Colossal Big Shot promises voluminous lashes in one coat . My lashes aren’t long to begin with and they don’t curl for anything, so I am constantly testing new mascaras to see how well they can enhance my lashes & how long lasting the mascara will be so when I received this I was anxious to try it out.             This mascara was easy to apply & I didn’t have to fix any clumping from the application. I ended...

December IPSY Bag

“A beauty trial for the girl on a budget.” I have been a part of IPSY since they first started out as GlamBag. For $10 you can get 5 full size/travel size testers of various products in a cute little bag each month. It is great for any makeup lover wanting to try some new products routinely. Upon sign up they give you a quiz, and try to personalize the samples the best they can which is pretty great because they are attempting to make an effort to please your makeup style. I received some pretty great items, & i’m going to talk about my favorites. I’ll start off with...

Tarte’s Sea Foundation

As some of you may have already heard, Tarte is coming out with a new water based foundation, Rainforest of the sea. It was available for pre-order over at QVC earlier last year & I’ve done a short review before it’s hitting stores & websites mid February – March (no exact date has been released yet.)   If you happened to have ordered it over at QVC, it also included a brush. Don’t worry too much if you don’t get the bonus brush, it was a bonus you can do without. I highly recommend if you purchase the foundation when it’s released, leave the brush behind. There are so many better quality brushes...
