Review + Swatches: LA Colors Eyeshadow Pots

Ok so next up in my reviews is the LA Colors Eyeshadow Pot. I also got these for $1 at one of my local dollar store. I am missing a few colors because there are 24 in total so when I get the rest I will do another post to show the rest of the colors. 
I love these eyeshadows! They have a nice texture and they blend really easily. They also have different finishes such as matte and satin which I think are the only two finishes these come in. I really have nothing bad to say because these eyeshadows are pretty decent for only being $1 each. But like I have said, LA Colors is a awesome brand that offers awesome products at amazing prices. 
Onto pics and swatches! 

Tiop L-R: Brownie (matte), Deep Amethyst (matte) and Bare Mauve (matte)
Bottom L-R: Sunshine (matte), Morning Dew (matte) and Periwinkle (matte)
Top L-R: Bare (matte), Ebony (matte) and Fabulous Teal (satin)
Bottom L-R: Ballerina (satin), Vanilla (matte) and Sterling (satin)
Top L-R: Jaded (satin), Just Peachy (matte) and Vibrant Viola (matte)
Bottom L-R: Fuchsia (matte), Electric Blue (matte) and Charcoal Gray (satin)

I hope you guys enjoyed this and it helps in deciding color choices or if these are worth a try, which I think they are. 
Thank you so much for reading!

Review + Swatches: LA Colors Jumbo Eye Pencils

Ok so I haul and haul stuff and never do a review or pretty good swatches of what I buy so I decided to do some swatches and reviews! The first few I have lined up are from LA Colors. So the first one I have is for the Jumbo Eye Pencil. 
I LOVE these pencils!! They compare to the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils and I feel that these are creamier than those and half the price! I got mine at a local dollar store for $1 each but you can find various sites that have them from $1.29-$1.45. These make for awesome bases for your eyeshadow and I have not used them for anything else. Because they are so creamy you have to be careful not to add to much and blend it out or you will get creasing. I highly recommend these pencils because you can't beat the price and like other LA Colors  products these are pigmented and amazing! 
Now onto pictures and swatches!
P.S. I am missing one in Pool Party.

L-R: Spring, Saltwater, Pretty in Pink, Desert Sun, Sand Castles and Relaxation

L-R: Sweet Wishes, Popsicle, Summer Love, Cherry Blossom and Bikini Time

L-R: Summer Time, Sun Kissed, Beach Resort, Iridescent Light, Limeade and Caribbean

Tropical Bliss, Vacation, Waves, Sea Shells, Bronze Shimmer and Sunglasses

I hope you guys enjoyed these swatches and it helps you in buying these if you decide to buy them!

FOTD: Pop of Color!

So I haven't done a FOTD in a while so I thought eh why not? So here it is! It's pretty simple but in person it  looks so much better! I love doing a neutral eye with a pop of color on the lower lash line! It adds a little something to a neutral everyday eye look. I had just gotten these LA Colors single eyeshadows about two weekends ago so I have a bit of an overdue haul that will be coming up soon. But for right now I decided to post this eyeshadow look. So on to what I used! 

I applied a bit of Popsicle Jumbo Eye Pencil from LA Colors on the inner 1/2 of my lid as a base and blended that out. 
I then added Bare Mauve eyeshadow pot from LA Colors on my crease as a transition color.
I then applied Just Peachy eyeshadow pot from LA Colors on the part where I applied the eye pencil.
After that I used the dark brown above the black in the 72 eyeshadow double stack palette to darken my crease a bit.
I then applied Fabulous Teal eyeshadow pot from LA Colors on my lower lashline to add a bit of some color to the look so it wouldn't be as bland. 
After taht I used Jane Black gel liner to line my top lash line and winged it out a bit. 
I applied Bare Naturale mascara from L'Oreal.
I applied a bit of some shimmery white eyeshadow from a Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Present to my inner corner.
I then applied Peacock glitter liner to my lower lash line and then went over it with Lime Light glitter liner to add a little bit of something else.
For the rest of my face:
ELF Eyebrow Kit in Medium
ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzer in St. Lucia
Wet n Wild CoverAll Face Powder (Forgot the name and I don't have it near me)
Foundation I think I used Rimmel 100% Poreless also forgot which shade
Fergie for Wet n Wild V.I.Pink

Thank you so much for reading! Oh and btw the LA Colors eyeshadow pots I got at a local dollar store and I might go back this weekend to get some more because I LOVE them! Well I love LA Color in general! Have an awesome night!

Collective MUA Haul! :)

Ok so I've placed a total of three orders with MUA and I was so happy when I got my first order I went ahead and ordered again and after a few weeks they had another promotion and I thought eh why not so I placed a third order. I am SO disappointed with the second order I can't even begin to say. They package their stuff in a little mailing envelope that has that thin line of bubble wrap in the inside. And two of my palettes were broken. The one that I was most excited about was missing three colors and two were cracked. When I say missing the colors I mean that the shadows were completely broken and as I was unwrapping my palettes I noticed that the dang powder was EVERYWHERE!! I wanted to cry because they take so long to ship and you pay how much ever you pay which I mean their prices are pretty good but still you are paying for something to get to you in a nice condition and they are a pretty well known company so I would expect them to put a bit into their packaging to make sure you get your things right. But they wrap everything like that and I guess the person that wrapped my third package was either very careful or I got lucky because I had 3 or 4 palettes in my third order and nothing broke.

E.L.F. 14 Nailpolish Cube

A few weeks ago I got this 14 piece nailpolish cube, well actually my cousin brought it to me from where she's at college because I couldn't find it anywhere around me so here it is! A bit overdue but hey at least I'm putting it up now. I believe she got it at Target. It retails for $10 and the polishes are small, maybe a typical mini size. They do take a while to dry though and maybe that is the problem with all ELF nailpolishes as these are the first nailpolishes I try from ELF. I have tried almost everything else from them but never got around to trying the nailpolishes and they are pretty and you get good coverage so that's a plus there! So onto the pictures. Sorry I didn't do swatches. 

Top L-R: Chic Confetti, Violet Velvet, Red-y or Not, Green Machine, Misty Haze, Sea Escape and Dazzle Diva
Bottom L-R: Gold Star, Cherry Bomb, Taupe Of The World, Smokey Brown, Desert Haze, Glamour Girl and Blushing Beauty.
