Makeup with Urban Decay Hatter and C-Note, Too Faced Melted Nude

For today’s look using Urban Decay Hatter and C-Note (from the Alice Through the Looking Glass and Vice 4 eyeshadow palettes, respectively), I’m venturing even farther away from neutral territory.

What’s In My Travel Bag: Makeup Edition

Press Sample buttonGood morning! This week, I’m talking about “What’s In My Travel Bag” since I’ll be traveling soon. Today I’m sharing with you what I consider to be my makeup essentials for traveling.

What's In My Makeup Travel Bag | Be Happy And Buy Polish

My requirements for what goes in my makeup bag: 1) it has to be something I will actually use, 2) no repeats (double blush, double bronzer, etc), ¬†3) it has to be a necessity, and 4) I can’t go buy something new just for the trip.

September Lip Factory Look

*Products/subscription box reviewed were self-purchased.*

Hello there! This is a follow-up post to the Lip Factory post of the other day.

I’ve used the following products to create today’s makeup look:

Skin79 SuperBB VIP Gold Collection
Skin79 Diamond BB UV Perfect BB Pact
Ulta Cheek Color in Sweet Cheeks
Benefit Watts Up Highlighter
Physicians Formula Sexy Glow Bronzer
-Sephora Arch It Brow Kit (no longer available)
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
JCat Eye Pencil in Charcoal
Studio277 eyeshadow in Kryptonite (received in previous LF box)
-Ulta eyeshadow in Grey Smoke (no longer available)
Manic Panic Creature of the Night mascara (received in previous LF box)

In the two following pictures, I have ModelCo lip gloss in StripTease on my lips:

I don’t really like the JCat eye pencil as an eye liner, but I think it will be a good “sticky” base underneath loose eyeshadow.

ModelCo lip gloss is a really really lovely nude lip gloss, and I’ve already used it several times since receiving the gloss.

The following picture, I’ve used Be a Bombshell Cosmetics lip gloss in Nude Beach on top of ModelCo Striptease:

The Bombshell lip gloss does add a bit of shimmer to the lips, without being overpowering.

I also did a comparison of the La Fresh makeup remover wipes to Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover:

You can’t really tell a difference in the pictures, but it did seem like the La Fresh remover wipes removed the eye makeup a bit easier – I didn’t feel like I had to scrub my eye as hard. It also seemed to remove the mascara way better. The only thing is that I wish the wipes were smaller! In the above picture, I only used half the wipe. I just feel like it’s wasteful. (I might just cut the wipes in half.)
