I have still kept up to my new upload schedule and I'm loving it more that ever! February was a great month from me! Here are my favorite things from February!

New Makeup Obsessions

February 25, 2017

I have some beauty products in my life that I am obsessing over recently and I need to talk about them. I'm doing a February favorites on the 27th and these will be included but I feel they needed a post of there own too.

I am currently loving these products so much that just putting them in my favorites with everything else isn't enough. I wanted to highlight these before I upload my favorites. I just love them so much I could explode!

So let's talk about some great products.

Real Techniques Starter Set | Review

February 23, 2017

Real Techniques Starter Set
On the Real Techniques website, they promise that these brushes are ultra soft, easy to clean and are long-lasting. They also say that there will be no product build up in the brushes and that they apply makeup with no streaks and leave a flawless finish.

These brushes have 100% synthetic bristles so these brushes are 100% cruelty-free. The brush handles are made of aluminum and are color coded, gold for face, pink for cheeks, and purple for eyes. The Handles also have the brush names on the back.

Ulta has stopped caring the starter set but you can still find it for $13.19 at Target and $17.98 at Walmart. And you can find it for $18 on the Real Techniques website. It's also available for £21.99 at Boots.  

Here is my experience with the Real Techniques Starter Set.

Beauty Comfort Zones

25 Facts About Me

February 19, 2017

So today I thought I would tell you all 25 facts about me so you could get to know me a little better. I've been writing this blog for almost 2 years and have only done the Get To Know Me Tag. I haven't told you much about myself. So I thought today I'd share a little more about me.

I figured that listing out 25 facts about me would be a good place to start. I didn't realize this would one of the hardest posts to write. It is really hard to think of facts about yourself. I've been writing down facts for months to make this post.

I've never done a post about my current makeup. I thought that today I should change that. So I decided that today I'd show you guys what products I'm currently loving.

This might be a long one so grab a cup of tea and settle in. All the products mentioned will be listed at the bottom of the posts.

The Geeky Girl Tag

February 11, 2017

I always wanted to come across as the nerdy gamer girl with a makeup obsession. When I started this blog I was planing in doing a bunch of geeky posts along with the beauty posts but I've never done it.

I got carried away with beauty posts and never got to the geek posts. It's time to change that today and start the geeky posts with the geeky girl tag! 

In my usual style I've added a question. I can never just do a tag without added questions or mashing two tags together.

I'm planning on a ton more geeky posts this year so get ready! Here's the geeky girl tag!

A Few Little Rants | I'm NOT a Mom Blogger | Also ft rants about Improper Grammar & Bought Followers

February 05, 2017

Ok so the title of this post may seem a bit strange. It's pretty obvious I'm not a mom blogger. I post beauty & lifestyle content. I'm 19 and have no kids. But for some reason BlogLovin' Activate thinks I'm a mom blogger. (I'm not saying that you can't have kids at 19 it's just that most 19 year old bloggers aren't mom bloggers.)

Recently I've also had some issues with how people use social media and I'm a huge grammar cop. I need to vent. So if you don't like rants that's ok. I'll see you next time. Come back on Tuesday. I'll be posting a new beauty review.

Lippies I'm Dying to Try | ft Lorac, Too Faced, YSL, Tom Ford, Bite Beauty, Charlotte Tilbury, Jeffree Star +More!

February 03, 2017

In my last post I listed out a ton of beauty products I wanted to try. I had so many lippies in it and I left so many out that I decided to do a post all about the lippies I want to try.

I'm a 100% a lip product addict. I can't got to Ulta or Sephora without getting a lipstick. I have such a long list of lippies I want that it was really hard to choose what to include in my beauty wish list post.

I love matte lip products so much I can't even tell you! It say I'm an addict or have a lip product obsession is an understatement. 

All products will be listed and linked at the end of the posts.

My Beauty Product Wish List | ft LORAC, Urban Decay, Smashbox, Too Faced, Benefit +More!

February 01, 2017

Before we start I'd just like to say that this is my 100th blog post! I can't believe I've done so many! It seems like I wrote that first post not so long ago but it has been a year and 9 months. I'm so happy to have hit 100 posts! Here's to the new 100! Now on to your regularly scheduled post.

I thought it was about time I did a post about products I'm dying to try. Everyone who loves makeup and beauty products has a wish list. My list is insanely long. I'd buy all of Ulta and Sephora if I could.

Today I'm going to list some of my most wanted products. I products I need in my life. I'm limiting this list about 30 products as if I don't limit it this post would be insanely long. I still think that is insane amount but It's the shortest list I could come up with.

All products will be listed and linked at the bottom of this post.
