Beach Bag Must Haves

Hello Dumplings,

          Summer is almost here! I am not a big fan of the heat, but I love all the fun summer activities. I am putting together a grouping of things I am going to be putting in my beach bag this year. Some of them are my own creations from my store, and some are from other stores.

          The essential piece is the bag of course. I found this Bag at Old Navy. I love the bright colors against the clean white background. I also think the sequense are gonna look gorgeous in the sunlight.

         Of course we need a cute Beach Towel I think this one from Target is so adorable. I love the cute little gold fish and the cool blue background.

          It's really important to stay hydrated in the heat. This Water Bottle is from my store. It is made from recycled materials and is crack and freeze resistant. I picked the Daisy design, but we have other designs available This one was just so summery.


          Of course you gotta throw in some cute Sun Glasses. These not only keep the sun out of your eyes, they also help shield your eyes from sun damaging wrinkles. I think this pair is too cute. I love the shape and that cute little bow <3

          Speaking of sun protection lol. I love the Kiss My Face brand. It goes on smooth and creamy. It blends in easily. I t feels like a moisturizer. It is also cruelty free.

          Janson Sunscreen is what I use on my body. It smells really good, its all natural and of course cruelty free.

          I looked through a lot of different stores for a cute Cover Up. I liked this one from Walmart because it looks very flattering on lots of different shapes, and it covers pretty well for modesty.

        Nothing say's beach glamour like a Big Floppy Straw Hat. These literally help make my summers so much more pleasant. I always feel so feminine and glamorous when I wear them. I love the black rim. It just adds a cute touch.

          I think I'm going to do some beach themed videos for my channel. This vlog totally got me in the mood. I hope you all have a wonderful day <3

Dare Party Animal Nail Polish Set

Hello My dumplings,

          I got this fun set as a birthday present from my Mom and Dad. I was super excited because I have been wanting to get my hands (and nails) on some neon polish for the longest time. My Mom is psychic lol. I had never heard of this brand before so I was really curious to try them out.

            These polishes are sold exclusively at walmart. They are cruelty free and made in the U.S.A. They came packaged together as a set. I threw my packaging out, but I found this image on google :)

           As a whole the set is really cute. I love the packaging. I think it would be so much fun to use these colors for nail art designs. I normally don't do this in my reviews but I'm going to list pro's and con's.

They are very pigmented
They have a matte texture which gives you versatility
They dry completely in less than 60 seconds.
They are cruelty free.
They are inexpensive.

They go on splotchy.
You need 2 to 3 coats for the green to look decent.
The names aren't on the bottles.
They stain your nails.

         All in all I would say they are worth picking up. I think if you use a good base coat and apply them with thicker coats you'll be very happy. Here is a look at the individual shades.

Bold Move (neon pink)

Heating Up ( neon orange)

Social Magnet (neon green)

Natural Flirt (neon coral)

Social Magnet, Bold Move, Heating Up, Natural Flirt

With a glossy top coat

          I will most likely be creating some nail tutorials using these for my youtube channel. I hope you all have a wonderful day :) Don't forget to enter my Mega Beauty Giveaway!! I love you guys <3

Nyx Xtreme Lip Cream In Candy Land

Hello Dumplings,

          I purchased this product several months ago and sort of forgot about it. That tends to happen to me a lot lol. It is so much fun when you find a hidden treasure.

         I must say Nyx really knows there stuff when it comes to lip products. I have been really loving their stuff. The Xtreme Lip Cream is a glossy liquid lipstick. They come in 11 different shades and have a doe foot applicator. The texture is very smooth and creamy. They feel comfortable on the lips and last a few hours. The one I have has great pigmentation. They are available at Ulta for $5.99. I have already purchased another one in strawberry jam. I also have my eye on a few others :) They remind me a lot of the Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing lipstick. It's a similar formula and design. You can find them at Sephora for $16.

          Candy Land is a medium toned bright pink. It reminds me of summer and the beach. I have pale skin but I think it would look beautiful on anyone with a tan. It is an opaque color even with one coat. I've been wearing it like crazy.

          I hope you all have a wonderful day. if you would like to score some free Nyx products please enter my Mega Beauty Giveaway linked below. I love you guys :)

Spotlight Review Sigma P82 Small round top kabuki

Hello Dumplings,

          I recently received two sigma brushes for my birthday. I also purchased a set for myself. I am going to post a full blown review of all the brushes on my youtube channel in the future. For now I have been so so crazy about this particular brush.

          The P82 caught my eye originally because of it's shape and description of uses. I did not have anything like it in my collection already. It retails for $16.

          According to sigma this brush is intended to blend cream products such as primer, concealer, and cream eyeshadow.  I freaking love this brush so much. It works well. It's comfortable to hold, and it feels comfortable on the face.

          I used it for all of it's intended purposes and found it worked really well for everything.

Concealer- It blends like a dream and doesn't mess up the pigmentation of your concealer. The rounded shape makes it easy to get into odd corners around your eyes.

Eye Primer- I found that for primer application this brush makes the job a lot faster. I especially like it for thicker textures like Urban Decay's Eden.

Cream Shadows- Kind of like the concealer this brush distributes the product with out lessening the pigmentation. It gives a wonderful even coverage.

          So there you go lol. I have been using this brush everyday and I love it. It's everything I hoped it would be. I hope you all have a wonderful day:)
