Beauty Review: KKW x Mario Eyeshadow Palette.

IMG_8265

Hello everyone and welcome to my newest beauty review! So a few weeks ago, I was with baby, watching YouTube and I saw SO MANY tutorials and reviews on the KKW x Mario palette. I was super intrigued since this is my type of color palette, so I wanted to try it. My lovely husband Phil caught me talking about it and ordered it for me (shout out to you Phil, you are the real M.V.P.)!

While the baby was sleeping, I decided to create two looks for you guys to see the quality of the palette.  Now this palette has a beautiful mixture of warm neutrals with both shimmer and matte shades with a pop of color with a blue and plum shade. So far seems SUPER versatile. I decided to do a blue smokey eye and a neutral glitter crease eye.

These looks were easy to achieve as I only had 30 min of baby sleeping to create them lol. The pigment is great on most of the shadows but for me personally, I wish the blue was more pigmented. I really had to layer the blue to get the color payoff that I wanted. I still loved the outcome though.

The neutral glitter eye was super easy to do and I ADORE this look. It’s something I feel like I can easily do any day. I did not do my traditional liner, I used the blue shadow as liner and I believe you can see what I mean about the color payoff here. I know different techniques to make it more “POW” but for this review, I just wanted to try it as is. Since the pigments are amazing, there is one downfall…FALLOUT. This is the usual situation for smoothe pigments. I can easily clean up fall out so it’s not too much of an issue for me, but it can be troublesome for others so, beware of fallout!

I personally would recommend this palette to any makeup lover out there as it is a good staple piece to have in your kit or collection! (Please do not mind my phone photos, I wanted to quietly and quickly take these pics while baby was sleeping).

Where have I been?

Hello world!

It’s me, Yesie Marie and I am back again. I know, I know, I’ve been slacking a bit. Let me tell you, I have a good reason for it! Since the last time I posted, I have gotten married and had a beautiful baby girl. Yes, a whole new life now!

I am still majorly focused on beauty, skincare and fitness,  but now I can add wife and mother to my blogging experience! I figured there are a lot of people out there who have questions about weddings and babies, and I am more than happy to HONESTLY help you all out.

Let me tell you, there are A LOT of things that people do not honestly tell you when it comes to wedding planning or being pregnant. Yes, it is all personal experience but upon asking other wives and moms, I have found that they all have experienced similar things to what I have.  The only difference is they experienced it in secret because they believed they were the only ones!

I want to be your online confidant, for all things beauty, skincare, fitness, wife and mom related. I guess you can call me your friendly lifestyle blogger! I am on maternity leave for a bit, so what better time to restart this blog than while my daughter is sleeping on my chest and I am enjoying every second of her existence! And yes, babies really do smell like love, happiness and unicorn dreams, with just a hint of spit up.😍

Please comment and let me know what questions or topics you would like to discuss for future blog entries!! I love a good dialogue! Also, it would really help me out if you can subscribe, like and share my page!!

Haute or Hype: Minute Review on Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lipstick

Haute or Hype review: Ladies and gents, this product is Haute! I had the opportunity to play around with these products and create a fun and Legendary lip look. With all of the color choices and textures, creating a legendary lip look was easy! They are full colored glosses! Just one swipe and you can see more pigment than your traditional lip gloss. My only Hype factor is that the darker colors bleed unless properly lined, but that’s definitely something I’m willing to work with!

I love everything vibrant and unicorn-Ish so I created two looks with these lip colors that reflected my unicornality (unicorn personality). For the first look, I used Foiled Brat, a metallic burgundy, Space Case, a metallic Grey, and Iced out, a royal Blue with some glitter and gems to emphasize the juicy-ness of these glosses. I LOVED how these glosses photographed and felt. Iced out  did not last too long but I forgot to line (shame on me)!

When the Iced out faded, I decided to keep the Foiled Brat color but add a more neutral color like Petal Metal, a popular rose gold shade which I ADORE!!! I added some unicornaility to it by placing blue glitter dots and I must say I was OBSESSED with the outcome!!

IMG_9015If you if you haven’t done so by now after reading this review, I say go to Sephora and get these Be Legendary Liquid Lipsticks before they are sold out! They are totally worth it!

If you have any other products you want to find out if its haute or hype, please comment below!

This post is not sponsored, I reviewed this product on my own.

Yes I have a problem, no I do not want to fix it!

Ladies and Gents, I have to announce, I AM IN LOVE!! (and not just with Phil)! I just MUST tell you about this AH-MAZING shoe website! The name is Lola Shoetique (isnt the name the cutest)? Now being the skeptic that I am, especially when it comes to online shopping, I was nervous to try this web store. Everything seemed sooo cute but I was most concerned about the quality of the product. Then one day, one of my friends told me about these adorable shoes that she bought. She showed me these shoes and told me that they were super comfy and super affordable. I asked her where she had purchased these shoes and I was not shocked to hear that they were from the one and only Lolashoetique.com!

After my first encounter with these beautiful shoes, I dedided that I would go home and do some research (like I always do with online shopping). I love watching Carli Bybel’s videos on youtube and found out that she did a review on some Lola Shoetique products. She was just as enthusiastic as I was about how cute and fabulous these shoes were. All signs were pointing to me finally making my own purchase at Lola Shoetique (my inner shopaholic screamed FINALLY, YES)! So that night, I went online and bought not only one pair of shoes, but 5 PAIRS OF SHOES! What made me more excited was the fact that the total for all five pairs of shoes only came up to around $130!! FOR 5 PAIRS OF SHOES!! Thats AH-MAZING! Even Philip was amazed by my recent purchase!

I could not wait to recieve my shoes. Lola Shoetique is a family owned business from California that also sells wholesale shoes. Thier order response was SUPER speedy. I got my package about a week after I placed the online purchase. Thats totally amazing for standard shipping online order of shoes. When I got home from work and saw my GIANT package from Lola Shoetique, I SQUEALED in excitement. They have this amazingly cute sign on the package (picture above). The shoes were individually wrapped in this cute pink tulle bag with a cute thank you note and a business card. It felt like everything was done for me personally!

I am so in LOVE with everything about this online shop. I was like a little girl at her birthday party when I opened the box. The shoes looked just as cute in person as they did online. When you are ordering, they tell you about the fit for each shoe and for the most part, they are true to size. Only one pair were a little big but it was perfect for me because I like to put insoles in my super high heels.

I adore this website and intend on ordering more shoes for the fall/winter season ASAP! You can check them out at their website, Lolashoetique.com or their facebook and instagram Lola Shoetique. I promise you wont regret ordering from here. If you know of any other website or product you know of that is interesting and worth the value that you want me to do a review on, please let me know in the comments below. I hope you enjoy this review and spread the word!!!!

Until we meet again
