Great Highlighters under $8!

Everyone loves a great find and I think these highlighters not only look great but have been getting good reviews and even better are super affordable!

You probably might have seen this one all over social media and them selling like hot cakes on Amazon but it is looking like Maybelline’s Master Chrome in “Molten Gold” is worth it! It is actually infused with reflective pigments that give a bold glow in a soft powder formula. Just look at the swatches for yourself: (check out my fashion IG too please and thank you- 😉 @mosquerastylesyou)

I do not know if you have heard or actually even tried e.l.f. cosmetics but if you have only seen them but not tried them you have to give them a try! I know their price tags for some may make you skeptical but there quality is actually good and some products can even be compared to more expensive brands for just about the same quality. That being said I am not completely surprised but pleasantly impressed to see their new highlighter (yes it has taken awhile since their last highlighter but it looks like its definitely worth the wait): the latest “Baked Highlighter” : “Apricot Glow” This peach color looks gorgeous and at this price of just $4 I just have to try it myself as well!

#FF 90s Nostalgia

I am sure you have noticed by now that the 90s is making a comeback, from the sweaters and sweatsuits to the shoes, the 90s are definitely back! With that being said, of course a bunch of companies will be making some of their own products to stay in the know. Guess, Reebok, and Champion have all already been making it especially with the help of promoting by top celebrities.

Esprit, a brand that you may have overlooked at one point is definitely one to watch now:

Definitely loving the pastel colors and the stripes! How about you guys? What are your favorites?

#MM New Highlighter Alert!

There have been rumors of Rihanna coming out with her very own makeup! Well just recently she was seen wearing it for the first time, in this pic below during the Fenty Puma pop up shop event in LA this past week! She herself said that “It’s mine, it’s a secret until September!” when asked which highlighter she was wearing. (Please check my fashion & beauty Instagram for the video!)

Newest Swimwear Collection

Not sure if the brand, Reformation, is in your radar but it should be now and I am sure you’re going to see more of it soon with their first swimwear collection release! This LA label has been in the game since 2009 and is known to be eco-friendly. Who wouldn’t like that right? They are also known for their cute and fairly affordable summer pieces but now, for the first time, they have added swimwear and I am loving it. In the same way they have made their summer pieces they are doing the same with their swimwear in that they are made out from actual recycled fabrics. Another thing I adore, the retro feel to their pieces!

Believe me if I could be able to afford it, I would want to have a-whole-nother wardrobe just for vintage clothing!! But for now I have collected some timeless pieces here and there. I even have a black and white polka dot high-waisted bikini with the top resembling how they used to wear it back in the day! I would love to add a couple of Reformation’s pieces to my collection as well!

Prices: The collection as a whole ranges from $78 to $148. You can order your favorite pieces on their site here

#TBT Guess what sandals are coming back?!

Just in time for #ThrowbackThursdays Steve Madden has announced that they are bringing back a pair of sandals that I am sure we all have had at one point. If you were into platforms back then, you must have had these. But honestly even if you’re not into platforms like that, look at how cute and minimalistic these are?!

Steve Madden calls these the “Slinky” sandals. As of right now they only have them in Black with a 2.25 inch heel height + 1.25 inch platform with a comfortable stretchy material on top. These will go great with the already trending tinted glasses and stretchy dresses that bring back the 90s! The price: $69.95. Even though I am finding out about these right now, they will not be releasing them until July! Howeverr you can preorder them here!

#MM 3D Highlighter Palette!

I first learned about Huda Beauty through my obsession with matte liquid lipsticks. They have a great collection of liquid lipsticks (each for $20)! They are also famous for their Textured Shadows palette Rose Gold Edition which you may have seen all over Instagram! Now she has added highlighters to her line but not just any highlighter, 3D  highlighter, that actually comes with steps!

Before I get into the steps I wanted to explain how there are two editions: The Gold Sands Edition and the Pink Sands Edition.

Fun Fact: Each shade name was inspired by beaches from all over the world!

The Pink Sands Edition is for fair to medium complexions with the names: Capri, Santorini, Azores, and Ibiza. The Golden Sands Edition is for medium to dark complexions with the names: Fiji, Seychelles, Tahiti, and Zanzibar. Below are the swatches on different shades of skin:

swatches

Application Steps:

1. First, you will need to Prep by applying from the top left corner of palette “Melted Strobe” to your cheekbones. This “melted strobe” creates a smooth base and is made with creamy shea butter and pearlescent finish.

2. Second, apply the lightest on your cheeks as your bonus glow.

3. Next, you can sculpt by taking the darkest shade and swiping it blow your cheekbone as if contouring.

4. Lastly, you can finish your look by sweeping the blush colored shade on line where your light and dark shades meet and blend it all together.

Isn’t this genius?  Not only does this palette seem to blind with its highlights but it also contours! This palette is priced at $45 and I honestly think it is worth it for what it does! You can find buy it here from their website directly.
