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!

Haute or hype minute review: benefit’s They’re Real mascara

Haute or Hype Product : They’re Real mascara by benefit

Price: $24.00

Can be purchased at: Your local department store, Sephora, online.

Product Claims: To Create volume, Curl, lenghthen and separate eyelashes. This mascara claims to give the appearance of false eylashes on your own natural lashes. (benefit claims)

Haute or hype/review: This product is HAUTE!!! I love this mascara. I already have pretty long lashes but they are very straight. Many other mascaras do not lengthen or curl my lashes. I usualy had to use a curler but honey, not with Benefits They’re Real!!! I applied this mascara on only one of my eyes and let me tell you, the wind blew with every blink. The claims that it lengthens and curls lashes is fact. I did not have to use a curler at all. The only problem is that it can clump easily but for me, that adds volume to my lashes!! I ADORE AND RECOMMED THIS PRODUCT! I assure you, you will love it. It even comes with instructions on how to apply (from lid to end apply horizontaly and wiggle). The packaging is cute, the product is amazing, GO GET IT NOW!!!

Awesome Eye Cleanser Review!!

So, we all know my obsession with makeup right? My least favorite thing about applying makeup is the removal of the makeup. First off, if I love my look, I want to leave it on as much as possible (Who wants to erase their work of art)? My next problem is, I have such sensitive skin, especially around my eye area. It is such a pain in the butt to remove my eye makeup.  If I buy a makeup remover that totally removes my eye makeup, it burns all around my eyes and makes me tear up.  I look like I cried for days! If I buy a sensitve makeup remover, It doesnt hurt but barely removes anything so I have to continue wiping and wiping off makeup in order to completely remove they eye makeup and I still end up looking like I cried my eyes out.

Its been totally frustrating for me but I needed to find something to remove my make up and not make me look beat up in the process. I decided to go to my trusty Duane Reade. I was looking for my normal cleanser (which shall remain nameless), and one of the associates at their cosmetics counters told me they were sold out.  I explained my issues to her and she said she had a product she wanted me to try.  I am a bit of a skeptic but I told myself, what the heck lets try this.  She had me try the Lierac Paris gentle cleanser cleansing water. I sampled it on my hand and it felt so light weight and airy. It smelled fresh but not strong. It was around 22 or 24 dollars which for a drugstore product was a little pricey, but not too bad so I took it home. So that night, kind of wearily, I tried the cleanser. I used a cotton ball to wipe off the eye makeup and it removed EVERYTHING! I was shocked, but being the skeptic that I am, I thought, “oh man, now my eyes will burn tomorrow morning”. Let me tell you, to my own surprise, this stuff WORKED. I am in LOVE with this product. It only takes a little to remove all of your eye makeup and does not hurt! I did not look beat up the next day. You get ALOT of product that will last for a while because a little goes a long way with this product. I highly recommend this product for people with the same problem that I have!

If you guys have any other recommendations or products you would like for me to try out and give you a review on, please write a comment below and I will try my best to test out the product and give you a good review!!

Until we meet again,
