brown copy

Since Fall is fast approaching I thought it was defiantly time to start covering the hottest fashion and beauty trends. Straight off the runway from Rochas, to Anthony Vaccarello, to Marc Jacobs and more all brown everything was a hot theme. This look is perfect for the Fall since brown matches the tones in which the trees will be turning, plus it matches the makeup trend of ultra smokey eyes. But who can afford such designers? I know I can’t, so let’s go to the next best thing, cheaper versions! That way no matter what your budget you too can fit the hottest new trends.

Beauty on a Budget: Wet n Wild Coverall Line

DSC_0425 (2) copy

Looking for a buildable full coverage foundation? Also low on cash? Well look no further! Today I am going to be giving you the full rundown on the Coverall Line from Wet n Wild.


The Coverall Line from Wet n Wild includes a primer base, liquid foundation, cream stick concealer, and pressed powder. The products I will be reviewing include the primer and foundation, mainly because the concealer and powder would be a skip in my book. To start things off the primer which is the hardest to find will set you back $5. I usually can only find the primer at Walmart and that is if they even have it in stock. The foundation which comes in 7 shades will set you back only $4! The shades that work best for my skin ton are a mix of 815 Fair and 816 Fair/Light. Keep reading for swatches and more!

Late Summer Nail Polish Roundup

Although it is late summer here in the States, we still have a full month left of the real heat! So why not share my top summer nail polishes that are super affordable and available in a variety of drugstore or high-end shades if my picks are no longer available.


The shades:

Egg yolk Orange – This shade flatters all skin tones and really draws attention to your nails. The bright orange is such a summer shade and can be easily pulled off. My polish is by wet n wild in their Wild Shine line in 405. The Wild Shine line ranges from 95c to $1.05 depending on where you buy it and is super rich when applied. No streaks and a one coat needed application. This is also my favorite line of nail polishes since they last a crazy long time on your nails even when working really hard day in and day out.

Any shade of White – Why white you ask? Well because it looks chic and with a variety of variants out there for shades anyone can pull this look off. The polish I have is Rimmel’s 60 Seconds polish in 703 White Hot Love. This particular shade is off white so it flatters my olive skin tone. This line ranges from 98c to $1.20 depending on where you buy. Because white is a tough shade for your nails usually you will need multiple coats. For this brand I find that 3 coats usually does it. The lasting power is also there for such a cheap nail polish.

For the longest time I was obsessed with others eyebrows and how perfect they could get them looking. After doing some research I found some alternatives to the expensive brow gels and creams (such as the $18 Anastasia Dip Brow) that work almost just as well!

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara: The first product I want to talk about is this brow mascara from NYX. It retails for $7 to $9 depending on where you buy. This mascara has a tiny brush which you just brush your brows into place. I have quite dark hair so my color is in Espresso. The brush is just under the size of a quarter which works well for your brows. When brushing into place you can go over in layers to achieve the correct shape and color. I usually go over twice since I sometimes miss spots. This product dries fairly quickly and will not budge until removed with makeup remover. The best part about this product is that if you make a mistake you have enough time to quickly smudge it away, so you can really get those flawless brows. This is my go to product on a daily basis since it takes two seconds to apply. Keep reading to find out about the eyebrow kit!

As part of my mini ULTA haul I had purchased one of NYX’s matte lip creams mainly out of curiosity. I knew of the Copenhagen shade that always blows up the internet in the Fall/Winter. So because of this, and the fact it was buy one NYX product get the other 50% off, I just had to try out a new shade. The shade I purchased is in the color San Paulo which is a bright fuchsia color. Without any special deals this product retails for $5.99.

Have you ever needed a product that can do more than just one thing? Well you’re in luck! Today I’ll be reviewing the E.L.F. Essential All Over Sticks that work as a 3 in 1 color for your eyes, lips, and or face! I currently own 4 of the shades, but sadly as I have put this post up I realized that E.L.F. had discontinued one of the shades I own. But knowing E.L.F. it could easily be back soon. This 3 in 1 stick costs only $1 and can be found on their website, or in most stores that carry E.L.F. products. Currently I know that most drugstores and major retailers carry E.L.F. cosmetics.
