My MAC and Sigma Wish List!

Posted by FeelingBeautiful at 8:32 AM 2 comments

So for the past two months, I have been really loving these items from MAC and Sigma.  Money is a little hard for me right now, so these have been on my wish list for a bit.  I will one day have these items! MAC is an all time favorite brand of mine and Sigma brushes are a just must need right now for me since my brushes that I have are old and not so good.  

1.  MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in "Soft and Gentle"
I have heard so many people rave about this.  It is great for a highlight. I have seen many videos on YouTube of people using this product and it looks absolutely amazing! 

2.  MAC Prep & Prime Highlighter in "Light Boost" or "Radient Rose"
The Prep & Prime highlighter.  I believe this is on everyones wish list!  This is a must need if you a looking for a great highlighter to put on top of your concealer.  I use the MAC pro long wear concealer and I have seen Jaclyn Hill on YouTube use that concealer and put this on top of it, and it's flawless.  It gives such a nice bright under eye look.  This will be one of the top items I will be buying first on this wish list. 

3 & 6.  MAC eyeshadows in "Amber Lights" and "Coppering"
These colors together are absolutely beautiful and would look great with any eye color.  They are high pigmented.  I have seen these also used on Jaclyn Hill and it looks great! These also will be one of the items I buy first from MAC.  

4.  MAC Powder Blush in "Peaches"
I just love this color especially when I am contouring my face.  I feel it would look amazing with the contour.  It's not to red and not to pink, it's just a perfect peachy color.  Exactly what I want!  

5.  MAC Shaping Powder in "Emphasize"
I have not found a great under eye setting powder yet and I have used the Ben Nye Banana Powder and I have to say I am not a fan.  After I have seen Jaclyn Hill (yes, I watch her a lot on YouTube.  She is basically my idol. Haha) use this on top of the highlighting pen, it just finishes off that under eye highlighted look and it's flawless, and absolutely gorgeous!  This will be another item that I will be purchasing first when I get a chance.  

7 & 8.  Sigma Kabuki Brush Set & The Sigma F35 Tapered Highlighter Brush
So like I said before, I NEED NEW BRUSHES!  The Kabuki Brush Set would be great for blending, putting on my foundation, and putting on my concealer.  The F35 Tapered Highlighting Brush would be great to put on my setting powder for under my eyes and also to help put the highlighter on.  I have seen many YouTubers use these brushes and it looks beautiful and easy to use.  People have raved about these brushes.  

This is only my MAC and Sigma wish list.  I have many more other items that I would love to purchase from Benefit, Too Faced, Anastasia, and many others.  If you have any other recommendations that is a must have that I should take a look at, comment below.   I would love to check anything out!

Has anyone tried any of these items? What do you guys think of them? Also I would love to hear what is on your wish list.

Benefits Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer

This primer caught my eye when I went to the Sephora store because look at how cute the packaging is on it! It's adorable! It is very good to use also if you are traveling and it's a stick applicator also, so I thought I would give this a try.  With the light beige color which it applies transparent so it is great for all skin tones.  

I have been asked many times howI feel about this primer and also have seen forums about people asking about it before purchasing, which I should have done.  When I first applied this, it dried up quick on my face so I had to hurry to apply my foundation on top of it.  After I have applied all my makeup, after a few minutes I would check myself in the mirror and my makeup looked caking and not flawless.  I need my primer to not only prime my skin but to help keep my skin matte and hide imperfections which this does neither of that.  I also have normal to dry skin type, so if you have oily skin, I would not recommend this since you might look a little bit more oily and it may slide your makeup off and won't keep it on long.  

Benefit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer: $32.00

Have you tried this before? What did you think of it?

ipsy February 2014 Blam Bag!

Posted by FeelingBeautiful at 4:55 PM 0 comments
"The Look of Love"

ipsy's February glam bag!

Hey beauties!

ipsy is a beauty community where you can learn new beauty tricks from their beauty stylists from their looks every month.  If you subscribe to their glam bags, you will receive 4 to 5 samples or full-sized beauty products.  It's a great deal for only $10 a month or $110 for a full years subscription!! Shipping is also free in the US!! Shipping in Canada is $4.95 per month.

When you first sign up, they have you take a quiz and it asks you different questions of what you like and prefer with your beauty products and also asks questions about yourself.  Each glam bag is made just for YOU!

  • To sign up for yours, go too:

This months glam bag was called "The Look of Love" based on Valentines Day for the month of February.

In my glam bag based on what I chose in my quiz, and also what was made for me I ended up with:

POP Beauty
Plump Pout Mini

I can't even tell you how excited I was to get this color in my bag.  I usually only wear lip gloss on my everyday look. The color I received is called "Fuchsia Freesia".  This lip gloss does not even feel sticky on your mouth and that's a big thing for me.  If it's sticky, it's getting thrown away!  The only down side to this lip gloss was that it smelled funny.  The price for the lip gloss at POP beauty is $16.

*If you would like to take a look at more of POP beauties makeup, what colors they have in their lip glosses, and also interested in this lip gloss, go over to their website:

Tini Beauty
Eyetini Cordial Cream Shadow + Base in One

At first I wasn't sure how I was going to like this creme eyeshadow.  I love the color that I got, which is the color "Violette" which is a purpleish color, but I am not a fan of creme eyeshadow.  I gave it a try one day just to review it and it was easy to apply and went over my eye and was easy to blend well and it was a gorgeous color but if you went over it a little more, some of it would wipe off, so try not to go over it as much with your fingers especially.  It did stay on long though.  The price for this creme eyeshadow is $18.

These are swatches from both the POP beauty lip gloss and the Tini Beauties creme eyeshadow.  The pinky color on the bottom is the POP beauty lip gloss and on top of that is the Tini Beauty creme eyeshadow.  ( Sorry about the poor quality)

*If you would like to check out Tini Beauties website or would like to purchase this eye shadow, you can head over to their website:

Nail Polish

The color I received was "Dot".  I have never heard of Zoya before so I was not sure what to expect with this.  This nail polish is great and if I come across this brand again, I will make sure to definitely buy some other colors.  The price for this nail polish is $9.

This photo of the nail polish doesn't even do justice for how gorgeous this color is.  It is one of my new favorite spring nail polish colors!  I really recommend this to everyone!

*If you would like to see more about the brand Zoya or would like to purchase this nail polish color, visit their website:

J.Cat Beauty
Eyelashes + Eyelash Glue

I got these eyelashes in EL43.  I have yet to try these eyelashes out but I am so excited to try them out for a night.  I feel these are perfect for the night out.  This retails at $3.99.  I don't wear eyelashes, but I usually wear them on special occasions or if I am going out for the night with a bunch of friends.  

*If you want to view their website or purchase these beauties:

Fresh start Mask with Ice Age Mud

I do love to try out masks and I am so excited to try this one out.  You are only suppose to leave this one for 10 minutes and to do it once a week.  It re-texturizes your skin.  It is a detoxing and brightening mask.  There are two phases to this mask.  This mask retails at $39.00 for a full size but a little sample like this would come out to be $6.50.

*If you would like to check out skyn ICELAND website or purchase this mask:

All of my items came in this little makeup bag from ipsy which is such a great idea to store everything.

The value of this makeup bag came out to be $53.49! That is amazing for just spending $10 a month on a ipsy glam bag.  I would really recommend subscribing to ipsy if you really love your beauty products like I do!
