My name is Miss Noela,
I’ve attempted writing blogs several times in the past but I’ve finally decided to shop around for a cool blogging site page to share my love for makeup, journaling, notebook fun, and the study of Wicca which includes tons of amazing self help inspiration; along with other random things that inspire me.
✨ red clutch embossed with a masquerade mask. I think the bag is adorable. Especially for October. It feels nice and sturdy too. I am going to put my top x lippies in this bag.
What are you going to use this bag for?
🖤 First item…
Some blush! And I would never lie on my reviews, you will see below, but this has become my go-to blush! The color on my skin tone matches so beautifully and the texture of this formula feels softer then any powdered blush I’ve felt.
The coolest thing about any subscription plan is getting stuff you normally would never buy or being introduced to brands you never heard of. After finding Space Case (thru Ipsy) I want to explore what other stuff they might have.
Like the website says: We can’t stop touching this light-as-a-cloud blush. It feels so pillowy soft on our skin and goes on *so* smooth.
🖤 Second item… Naked Cosmetics loose pigment in Rain Forest, a gorgeous olive green eyeshadow.
Honestly it’s not the best, I was expecting something much more noticeable and out there. If you’re wearing an already dull green or black shadow then put this on top then it’s well worth it, but applying this on its own doesn’t do much, unless of course you want a very quick, simple, put it on with some lashes and go – type of look then this is perfect.
🖤 Third item… IBY highlighter in Prosecco
Another one of my fav highlighters! You will love it, if you’re obsessed with a bright beautiful glow! It’s buildable so it’s up to you if you want a subtle glow or a bright highlight.
🖤 Fourth and fifth item…
Little Lipglass in Love Child – an extremely glossy shimmery coppered plum. It’s so amazing I’m going to purchase the nude shades.
Lip Balm in Strawberry Peppermint – as you can tell this item has never been opened which means I can not review it, I may be prejudging but lip balms that are a. Tinted and b. Super thick and sticky looking is something I rather stay clear of. Especially since the reviews were all bad I am going to assume I am right about this.
Hope you enjoyed! If you received an October glam bag what items did you receive, which was your favorite and which ones did you not enjoy?
November Ipsy glam bag coming next month…. this series will cont. for as long as my subscription continues so please send suggestions to make this more exciting or informative. What do you want me to include in my November’s glam bag blog post?
- Reviews from other people
Come up with whatever and comment it below I love hearing new suggestions it keeps me motivated and inspired to do something I love so much… blog 🗳📚
I want to do a quick pictorial haul/review on all the items purchased from Shopmissa, enjoy beautiful people!
Side note: What the emojis mean –
✨ Introducing a new item
💻 Screenshot from the actual website shopmissa.com
🖋 My review
It does take 30days minimum to receive in the mail. (Of course it is different for everybody, I live in CA.)
✨ AOA eyebrow gel
🖋 I give this 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 a big no! After taking that photo it went straight into the bin. The picture describes it all. That is not something I would ever put on my eyebrows.
✨ Card holder
🖋 I think it’s cute for being only one dollar, but it’s something that I’m probably never going to use and it will just end up in the goodwill pile very shortly.
✨ all the earrings! Note: I won’t be adding every screenshot from the website just because I want to keep the blog short, simple and quicker to download. Everything listed below is from https://www.shopmissa.com and it all cost $1 each
👇🏼These pink bears are freaking adorable. They also come in dark blue, light blue and clear. Unfortunately the clear was sold out, but the pink is perfect for supporting October’s breast cancer awareness month.
👍🏼 VERY NICE! Very comfortable, for being $1 this was a great pair to add to my ear rack on display and not in my earring drawer.
👍🏼 VERY NICE! Beautiful colors! They are a bit heavy so if that is an issue for you I don’t recommend them, but overall this is a complete steal for the price and quality.
👍🏼 VERY NICE! I have not worn these yet, but I don’t see any visible issues.
👍🏼 VERY NICE! Again, I have not worn these yet, but I don’t see any visible issues.
🖋 I give this 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 a big fat THUMBS DOWN. This is extremely uncomfortable. The cuff is very weak and hard to stretch it open wide enough to put your ear in it then it was extremely impossible to tighten back, which made it slip. I hope that makes a little bit of sense.
👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 Another big no for me. Fortunately this one preference unlike the ear cuff above that one hurt.
I thought I was getting a simple big hoop but these aren’t big… they are MASSIVE, HUGE, HUGE hoops. These hoops are so big when they are in I feel them sitting on my shoulder. The two little studs are also extremely cheap and dull when the ring lights not shinning on them.
🖋 I have tried several eyelashes from shopmissa.com and every time I’ve been slightly to fully disappointed. Right now I can’t review these specific lashes simply because I have yet to try them. So this will have its own separate review… maybe I can come out with an eyelash haul/review bought from different places, who would enjoy that?
✨ To hurry this haul up I decided to make a collage out of everything I got for October’s breast cancer awareness month!
🖋 Everything you see here is also a dollar. I give everything except for the bracelet a big thumbs up. The bandana I have not worn yet simply because I haven’t washes it yet, so hopefully it’ll be just a regular easy to tie around my head bandana. I usually buy the red and black ones from Walmart and they’re also just one dollar so I’m hoping this won’t be any different.
✨ And last I wanted to show you all the eyeshadow I received, again to make this blog not so long I created a collage and added a fun swatch in there for you as well
🖋 as you can see the swatches really aren’t half bad, but I haven’t put them to the test just yet. I did use that brown shade for my brows and that turned out fine. Let me be fully honest though, I will not purchase any of these again except for the loose powder if they come out with a shade I really desire. Because there are other options
✨ A coin purse and a makeup bag
Conclusion and sneak peek into my next blog post 👇🏼
🚨 I want to end the post by saying the day after I organized all the new goodies I got I made a pile of the stuff I didn’t ended up liking, somethings I didn’t even have to take out of the bag to know it wasn’t for me. Later that day I organized the heck out of my closet and ended up tossing three huge bag fulls of stuff I no longer wanted. I then started to research how to live more like a minimalist and that’s going to be my next post. Because let me tell you it felt SO GOOD getting rid of all that stuff. It was like I finally got rid of some emotional baggage by doing so. I made it a point not to go thru everything I put in my giveaway pile because I didn’t want to syke myself out. Once it hit the giveaway pile I knew I no longer wanted nor needed it and off it went.
This is going to be a short, fun, simple post. Its not to be taken serious. It’s not shade. Please enjoy….
Jeffree Star is finally saying bye to the 90s style. I don’t know if that is going to be such a smart move for his business, because his entire esthetic is hot pink and fun girlie things like cupcakes and bright colors mixed with sharp knives and horror movies.
Check out his regular packaging compared to his newest packaging… I don’t know about you, but that does not give me Jeffree Star vibes.
Is this not giving you Kim K. Vibes?
Looks like she has a massive influence on everybody.
I understand everybody grows up, they mature and they change (appearance wise) I know I for sure have. That’s why I’m not mentioning his personal changes I’m specifically pointing out his cosmetic differences. His brand if you will. And please don’t assume this is an attack because I’d rather watch 🖥 a Jeffree Star YouTube video over Keeping up with the Kardashian’s any day. I just happened to notice a change in his packaging and personally if you have such an intensely known look as is then you shouldn’t change it up randomly by doing something that’s so opposite.
I wonder if he’s going to continue this new look or quickly go back to hot pink and fun bright colors. 🤔
What do you guys think of the packaging? Comment below 👇🏼
I grabbed this tag from one of our fellow wordpress bloggers emmakernstein. I still don’t know how to tag people’s pages, comment below if someone wants to teach me. Anyways let’s just jump right into the tag shall we?
1. What is the very next makeup item you’re planning on buying?
💡 Dose of Colors Friendcation
Like hello are you kidding me? This palette looks so f***ing beautiful! I don’t care for the name of the palette, then again I’m glad it’s nothing like “Wild party.” “Tasty.” “As if.” You know those names older people think are trendy but in actual reality are just annoying. I do have a confession… I’ve never touched a Dose of Colors product before 🙄😱 so I am not sure if I even like the formula. But the shades of this palette are seriously screaming my name. Let’s just pray it’s not the Jeffree Star Thirsty palette situation. I spent an arm and leg for that palette just to find out the shadows, low key, are disappointing AF. Just by looking at this palette (see pic below) I’ve already created several looks.
You can pull off a simple cute Barbie inspo look to a grungy rock n roll babe look.
What are your opinions on this palette? Comment below 👇🏼
2. If you could walk into Sephora TODAY and buy any one item (regardless of budget), what would it be?
💡 The entire Jaclyn Hill x Morphe brush set and all the bags included.
For the obvious reasoning of course! Duh. Good quality brushes with an amazing amount of my favorite type of brush… the blending brushes. I am highly disappointed with the pricing. With this set you are literally paying extra for a persons name (Jaclyn Hill). A person that said it’s not about earning money, yet agrees to up the price tremendously is not a good quality when you don’t have your own makeup company. She’s a talented makeup artist turned YouTube creator/influencer. She should want her fans to be able to enjoy her collaborations and not make them spend their rent money just so she can add an extra huge closet to her mansion. Just my opinion.
3. What is the oldest item on your Sephora Loves List?
💡 The OG porefessional face primer by Benefit
Because it really does fill in your pores (and if this product can minimize MY pores then it’s good because I have terribly large pores) it also leaves your skin blurred.
4. What is the newest item on your Drug store Loves List?
💡 Maybelline Fit me loose finishing powder in fair light
This really is the closest dupe I’ve tried for Laura Mercia. It makes my skin so airbrushed, there is zero flashback and the reason I prefer to get it in the shade Light is because I’m obsessed with the brightening affect. It’s not cakey’ either so you don’t need to over spray your setting spray at the end.
5. What Perfume is on the top of your wishlist?
💡 KKW Fragrance crystal
To be honest with you, I want to buy this because I am so completely obsessed with the crystal. It’s gorgeous!
6. What is the new release you’re looking most forward to?
💡 Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette – Precious Stones Collection in Amethyst
Although I’ve never tried Huda Beauty products I have been wanting a true purple eyeshadow palette. It will be fun to see how her eyeshadow formulas are and it’s only $27.
7. Are there any drugstore products you want but haven’t yet pulled the trigger on?
💡 Yes, my list for drug store items is much longer then my list for high end products.
The Revolution concealer, Setz on the go blotting powder, and e.l.f brush cleanser wipes.
The list continues, I need to write a blog specifically dedicated on my opinions between drug store and high end makeup. Get my research on and maybe conduct some interviews.
8. The eyeshadow palette you’re lusting over the most.
💡 It has to be Dose of Colors Friendcation (also mentioned above)
9. Product you’re waiting for your next birthday/Christmas to ask for.
💡 By far benefit brow contour pro in dark brown
10. What is the item that you’re dying to have that is not available in your country/area?
💡 bounce up pact prime
11. What is the thing that you really want but you’ll never buy because its “too expensive”?
💡 I love highlighters and bronzers. Ofra has amazing highlighters! But I would never spend $110 on this palette, because you can find just as amazing highlighters for much much cheaper. Plus I’d rather drop $110 on a basket full of makeup or clothes .
12. If there was a beauty product Genie who could grant you one wish, what would you wish for?
💡 I would wish for an unlimited budget on every beauty, hair, skin, makeup, etc. items I want.
I want to nominate everyone who read this post and to tag people you think may also enjoy this. Please be sure to tag me in your post, I can’t wait to read everyone’s answers!
Comment below if you agree with any of my answers! 👇🏼 I’d love too start communicating with other bloggers 👩🏼💻
This is what I got in my September Ipsy glam bag! ✨
The infamous Ipsy bag! I was so excited about this bag because I love black makeup bags, lashes and gold! I used my August glam bag for all my black eyeliners to go into, but I’ve switched them over to this bag because of the lashes. Lashes = eyes = eyeliner 👌🏼 how perfect is that?
Q: What do you use your Ipsy bags for? Comment below 👇🏼
My August glam bag will be used for any go-to lip goodies 👄
What’s in the September bag?
First we have a LUXIE BEAUTY Harley Quinn Detail Flat Definer 110
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I definitely give it five stars because hello Suicide Squad character Harley Quinn-inspired makeup brush, must I say more?!
It truly has soft bristles and you can use this brush in several different ways. 1. blending out your concealer 2. Applying eye primer 3. Setting your eye primer 4. Baking the sides of your nose when contouring. The size of the brush is perfect for doing all those things meanwhile not wasting any product.
Q: How do you use flat definer brushes? Comment below 👇🏼
Next we have…
Insanely Intense Mini Tattooed Eyeliner in Jet Black
Again I give this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ five stars, because let’s face it you can never go wrong with black eyeliner! It applies nicely over eyeshadow, it dries quickly and you can make a dramatic cat eye without having to shake the pen over and over again. You know what I’m talking about right?
A closer look at the tip in case your curious. This is also waterproof and smudge-proof.
There was a full face in this glam bag which is why this months been my favorite so far….
Berry Lip Fix
⭐️⭐️⭐️ Three stars because lip treatments tend to make my lips more chapped, but I do love how it gives me a glossy affect which makes my lips appear fuller and less damaged. I also like that the berry flavor is extremely mild, I prefer scent less, tasteless lip products.
A few different ways to apply this Moisture-Boosting Balm
1. Swipe on bare lips
2. Apply as a primer for matte shades, so the color goes on nice and smooth.
3. Make lip stain: Using your finger, mix with your fave lip color and dab on lips for a subtle flush of color
Resources: Ipsy app
The 4th product is….
MEECH AND MIA
Pressed Eyeshadow in Gunmetal
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Yes please! Getting eyeshadow is my ultimate favorite surprise to get in the Ipsy glam bag and just like black liner you can’t go wrong with black shadow. Simply because this could match with ANY shade, you could apply it on the lid alone pop on some lashes and literally call it a day and look fabulous. Or you could apply any shade on the lid, this black shadow in the outer V blending both colors into the crease and just like that you have a fun Smokey eye. And last you can simply use this as eyeliner which would be so sexy looking with the glitter!
Ps. I am aware gunmetal has hints of gray and most beauty gurus wouldn’t call this black, but since it’s in the black shade family, personally I see it more as a black rather then a dark gray.
Q: How do you feel about shimmery black shades? Comment below 👇🏼
Okay the last product from the September Ipsy glam bag is… 🥁
Around-The-World Light Infusion Highlighting Blush in Positano Sunrise
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Who doesn’t love a versatile makeup product as beautiful as this? Personally it’s too pink, for me, to use this as a highlighter unless it’s an inner tear duct highlighter. And since I’m not a fan of a shimmery blush I plan on using this as an eyeshadow.
Fun fact: The powder is infused with sunflower seed oil to soften and moisturize.
That’s it! This fun glam bag consists of a fun look that anybody can put together in no time and still look as if it took you an hour to get ready! Apply your favorite concealer with the LUXIE BEAUTY Harley Quinn Detail Flat Definer 110 apply NOMAD COSMETICS Around-The-World Light Infusion Highlighting Blush in Positano Sunrise to your eye lids. Sweep MEECH AND MIA Pressed Eyeshadow in Gunmetal in the outer Vs of your eyes and blend the two shades into your crease. Go ahead and sweep that shade on your bottom lash line as well then create a dramatic wing with your SKONE COSMETICS Insanely Intense Mini Tattooed Eyeliner in Jet Black. Apply some false lashes, I suggest Demi whispers something more natural when you are doing a bold eye look. If you want to be extra tonight go back to your NOMAD COSMETICS Around-The-World Light Infusion Highlighting Blush in Positano Sunrise and apply it to the apple of your cheeks and your inner tear duct as a blush/highlight duo. Tip: apply your go-to blush first then apply the NOMAD blush on top for a rosier glow! And to top off the entire look pucker up and apply your new SKYN ICELAND Berry Lip Fix all over the lips alone or on top of a nude brown lip liner.
Your ready to hit the town. Toss everything back into your glam bag along with your phone, ID and some cash ✨

Hello my beautiful wicked queens and kings!
I am currently in the process of starting my own YouTube channel!
I wanted to blog about it just a little bit.
Why it’s taking so long
At the moment I am slowly but surely gathering the things I need to start a “high end” looking YouTube channel. I’ve posted on 3 of my social accounts that I’m looking to hirer an editor to help me edit my videos. Unfortunately I’ve had no responses therefore I’ve done a lot of studying on how to edit my own videos on an iPad mini 4 by Apple. I downloaded editing apps and have been playing around with them, but the truth is I just can’t get the hang of it. That’s my number one reason why I haven’t uploaded.
The second reason I haven’t uploaded is cost. You know the saying “it takes money to make money” and let me tell you the equipment is not cheap. Let me give you a quick list of the things I need and want to buy before filming my first legitimate video.
A microphone (specifically for an iPad mini 4) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074KJ1N3D/ref=ox_sc_act_title_6?smid=A3PXMTM90WA2LD&psc=1 $10.99
A table to put my camera & makeup on (the office table) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NIYX9LC/?coliid=IEQMZVDK4ZX5V&colid=1JS789LW54XDN&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it $26.51
A vanity mirror with lights https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MG8X4QS/?coliid=I3SFDYG4PRMLGJ&colid=1JS789LW54XDN&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it $21.99
Backdrop support system https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E6GRHBO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=APGNKGIBL58YH&psc=1 $32.00
A beautiful backdrop https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077Z55T65/?coliid=I31SXTLH3U0RXK&colid=1JS789LW54XDN&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it $17.21
The third and final reason I have yet to upload is my planning, organization, making sure everything is perfect OCD. I want my first video to not be embarrassing, I don’t know how to just have a conversation into a camera especially being bran new I don’t have followers to talk to specifically. And even though I’m not doing this for followers, which I’ll get into later in this blog, I still don’t want to post a video thinking no body is going to see it and end up regretting it later. So right now as I continue to get my equipment I have been recording practice videos.
Why I want to start a YouTube channel
- Because makeup is my passion and my ultimate hobby. Where ever I am at any time I am doing something makeup related. From watching makeup tutorials, writing a review on a product I tried, taking pics of a sunset cut crease to turn it into a pictorial or simply flipping thru Instagram or Pinterest for inspiration. I am constantly focused on beauty. #makeupaddict
- I live a very abnormally regular life (that’s a long story I will explain on another blog) overall I feel like when I sit down and begin recording myself doing my makeup I am escaping from the everyday routine. It’s just the camera, me and my biggest hobby. It’s very relaxing and calming for me. That being said I want to get out of my comfort zone and post my videos for the world to see. Putting a photo of yourself on the internet isn’t nerve racking to me because I get to choose my best angle, my best lightening, etc. but a video is more raw. Just knowing I will have a handful of friends and family watch one of my videos is a scary thought because it’s out of my norm to do.
This was just a fun, simple blog to let people know that there’s going to be yet another makeup enthusiast creator on YouTube 🎥 👩🏼💻👩🏼🎨💋
I got this from @beauty and the ballroom, which she got from someone so too who ever created the tag and those who have done the tag thank you! I invite everyone and any one who wants to participate.
Do you remember your first makeup item?
I remember always having makeup, my mom was very stylish she loved fashion and beauty. But something I remember in particular is when I was having really bad cramps… so bad I was in tears I called my mom at work and told her. She left early, stopped at the store and came home after taking care of me she gave me a goodie bag. It had a bunch of amazing things, but this one item that stood out was an eye lash curler. Not the regular kind either. It looked like the one posted below but it was from Laura Mercier.
What kind of coverage do you prefer from a foundation?
Medium to full coverage. Never sheer. And you’ll never see me buying any B.B. creams or tinted moisturizers.
Favorite high-end brand?
Urban Decay because they are bold and edgy, but also cover the neutrals. The All-Nighter Setting Spray is my holy grail because it really is the best setting spray for oily skin. There eyeshadows are super buttery and pigmented and they come in every shade you can possibly think of. I love there 24/7 glide on eye pencils more then any pencil on the market. Although there are amazing cheaper dupes for these – Maybelline Lasting Drama 👍🏼
What cosmetics brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
Fenty, Milk Makeup, Flower, Buxom, Melt Cosmetics and Sugar Pill.
Favorite drugstore brand?
Colour pop, NYX, Morphe, Maybelline, Ardell and Kiss
Do you wear false lashes?
Yes!! They complete your look. My ultimate favorite are Kiss lash couture in Corset. In every way you can think of a great lash these are them.
Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
Honestly no. I leave the house all the time completely bare face. But I do always have swatches on my hand.
What is your most cherished beauty product?
Jaclyn Hill x Morphe eyeshadow palette, simply because it’s the best shadows I own and first Morphe product and first product from a YouTuber.
How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there, or get lots of goodies at once?
Both! On payday I like to get the things I’ve been wanting or needing. Then for those two weeks until next payday I buy what is affordable usually lashes and nails stuff like that.
Do you have a “beauty budget” or do you spend freely?
I spend freely. Yes that needs to change.
Do you utilize coupons, reward cards, and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
Of course! Who doesn’t love a good sale!
What type of product do you buy the most of?
The necessity’s lashes, lash glue, glue-on nails, and mascara.
Is there a brand you absolutely can’t stand?
Kylie Cosmetics. Because she makes the products for herself, the entire empire was created from a spoiled and selfish person that “got lucky”. Sorry if that offends anybody, it’s just my personal opinion. Opinions can change.
Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?
Ulta Beauty. It’s not at busy compared to Sephora, plus the best part it has everything from high end to drugstore brands.
Do you like trying new skin care products or do you keep a certain routine?
I love trying new skin care because I don’t have any holy grail skin care products yet.
What brand do you think has the best packaging?
Sugar pill is pretty adorable.
Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
Does Ipsy count?
Favorite beauty gurus?
Oh there are so many – Jaclyn Hill, Lauren Curtis, Niki Tutorials, Tati, Jordi, the list goes on.
Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
Two. But when I get out of the shower I use 4. Because I have bleached hair and I’m obsessed with spray leave-in conditioners and anything with coconut.
What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
Would you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Yes, I am going to have my certificate next year.
What do you love about makeup?
How it makes you feel. It gives you confidence also it’s more then just applying lipstick it’s my passion, my hobby, everything I do is based around beauty and makeup. Blogging, instagram, videos, etc.
Okay, I hope you enjoyed. Tell me if you agree or disagree with anything I’ve answered.
I wanted to write a list of the majority of makeup products that I want to try and need in my collection. I say majority because this page couldn’t be long enough for my entire wish list. So I decided to make a series and in each series I will feature 5 products.
Let’s begin shall we…
Grease eyeshadow palette
This is a collectors item. I do love that they incorporated a transition shade and highlight shade.
Every palette has that one shade that catches your eye in this palette it’s Electrifyin’. Which shade catch’s your eye? Do you agree with me? Are there any shades you dislike? There should have been a black shade I mean hello John Travolta rocks that all black style. And they could call “T birds”.
This is in no particular order because I plan on buying this when it releases August 14th! The Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault eyeshadow collection!
As much as my little heart would love to buy the collection I’m going to save that coin and just buy the red palette.
The red palette Ring the Alarm is a 10 pan shadow collection from metallics to mattes. If you love a great warm tone, or like me, don’t have much of them in your collection then this one is for you too.
The shade that catches my eye is “Bomb Ass” rub that on my lid, sweep “Alert” in my crease then winged liner and false lashes and call it a day. People will look at you and assume you took hours in front of the mirror getting ready.
Should I continue with eyeshadows or just make this wish list completely chaotic? Chaotic! Good choice!
Fit me loose setting powder!
I keep hearing amazing reviews about this powder and my holy grail, ride or die fit me foundation I use every day! I use a lighter shade under my eyes and on my chin. I no longer add it to the middle of the forehead. Then with a skin tone powder and a large fluffy brush I set the rest of my face and neck. Lately I’ve been setting my eyebrows with pressed powder because they like to melt away in this heat. Right now I’m using the cover girl loose setting powder and it’s very brightening and very powdery. It’s impossible to use it without getting powder every where.
Another fun little item is the…
beauty blender Blotterazzi!
A beauty blender Blotterazzi is a reusable oil blotting sponge. This doesn’t have the annoying, useless corners like the traditional blotting papers. This two blotting cushions for beauty touch ups for on the go come in a chic mirrored compact. The bottom of the compact has vents built in which will help sponges dry after each use. Along with clear, hygienic separator which ensures sponge freshness.
You use this dry and to clean wash with liquid blender cleanser and dry in a well ventilated room.
It would be adorable to add to my purse essentials the mirror comes in handy. And since I get very sweaty and am very oily this will be a fun, easy, quick touch up moment anywhere I’m at.
It’s easy to use, if you’ve ever used regular blotting papers then you already know how. Use this dry, dab it down all over your sweaty spots and put it back in the case to later clean. It will save you money by not repurchasing papers, it’s safer for the earth, not tossing the papers away. It not only wipes the sweat but it helps keep your foundation looking fresh and streak free. I’ve never used it and that’s why it’s on my wish list, but it all sounds so practical and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
And last my #5 Wet n Wild mega cushion contour!
This one and done contour cushion by wet n wild! I need this now!
It looks like it would be super simple and the packaging is so cute I’m dead. You can build it up and it seems almost impossible to get harsh edges using this. Dip your beauty sponge or foun brush and bounce it in all your regular contour areas.
Conclusion….. my beautiful wicked queens.
If you made it this far you are amazing and I’d love you to ask a few questions.
1) out of the 5 items which one would you want to add to your own wish list? If you were too only choose one!

Beauty is within
