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 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!

Where have I been?!?

Hello world! I am back! I have missed you all terribly. Now, where have I been you ask? Well, the answer is, I have been totally OUT OF IT! A lot has happened since the last time we spoke. I went through some ups, and some downs that have kept me pre-occupied. One thing is for sure, I promise I have not abandoned you!

I have still been keeping up with my fitness habits, although I am still struggling. I work out and eat healthy. I have tons of new fitness tips to share with you all and I am still here for your support (as I hope you will continue to support me)!

I am still makeup obsessed. That is certainly one thing that will never change. I will continue to share my tricks of the trade with you and do a lot more beauty reviews.

Winter had kept me pretty busy! Holiday season was super crazy. Loads of working as well as loads of shopping! Here in New York we had TOO MUCH SNOW!

There was something pretty amazing that happened during my time off from blogging. PHIL AND I ARE ENGAGED! How stinking exciting?!? I am the happiest woman alive! Here’s how it happened; on the eve of our 8th anniversary, he took me out to dinner. That day 8 years before, Phil and I took a picture in front of the L.O.V.E. statue in the city. We call that the day we found love.

After dinner, we walked by the statue and he told me how much he loved me and that I was the only one for him. He handed me a ring pop and asked me to marry him. I laughed and said yes! As I laughed, he reached in his other pocket and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Words could not describe the shock and emotion I felt. I was for sure, the happiest woman alive! To my surprise, he had our best friends and his brother and fiancé watch and record the whole thing! It was THE perfect proposal! I know, I’m a lucky lady!

So now you get a drift of why I’ve been gone, but I’m back baby! I have lots of fun things to share with you, just keep coming back!

Until we meet again,

Yesie Marie ❤
