100% Pure Cosmetics Review and Swatches

In love with this beautiful packaging!
They all came in cardboard container, and then these beautiful packages inside that so they were packed beautifully,and nothing was broken.

Swatches of the Pink Plum Blush and Cocoa Bronzer these blend out so beautiful and subtle.

I just cannot say enough about these beautiful products. The blush and bronzer are so amazingly pigmented. They were long lasting and I know for the fall these will be my go to items. This plum blush is the perfect flush of color for fall. I have hit pan on my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer and I know this will be replacing it. I love that it is all natural yet still feels so luxurious on the skin. You will have to use a light hand with these because they are so pigmented, but you can build easily if you just start out light. I cannot wait to try out more from this brand I have been on their website for 30 minutes looking at all the products.

The powder foundation is amazing, I have been using it with concealer. I apply the concealer where I need to correct and then spraying my brush with rose water to wet it and then get a dusting of this powder. It has such great coverage, and it isn't cakey or drying either. I have trouble skin, with discoloration and to be able to say that this offers me acceptable coverage is great. I have used it to set my liquid foundation on hot days, and it worked great for that as well. 

What are you favorite 100% Pure Cosmetics items? What should I try out next?

Be sure to check them out online, and get yourself some beautiful natural makeup!

    Wal Mart Fall Beauty Box-Opening

    L'oreal Glossy Balm $6.97
    Covergirl Glowing Nights Glosstini Polish $2.97
    Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant $7.92
    Travel Size Dove Shampoo and Conditioner $.99 each
    Travel Size Dry Oil $.89
    Samples of Nicki Minaj Pink Friday, L'oreal Pore Vanisher, and Neutrogena Longwear Foundation with a coupon!
    (all products that I have used before and really enjoy so love the samples too)

    That's a total of $20.73 and I payed $5.00 for the box. So much fun I have heard there are several different versions going around, which makes me wish I should have ordered 2 and got one for a friend. I personally do not mind travel size products because when the hubby and I go away it's usually for a concert. I take a bag full of makeup as is, so who needs full size hair products taking up space you could put an eyeshadow palette.  I have never tried the L'oreal Glossy Balms or the Covergirl Glowing Nights nail polish. I am excited, I will probably not use the deodorant. With it being fall I can start using my natural deodorant again. I will give it to a friend or donate it to a local women's shelter.

    Did you get the box? Let me know if you review it I am curious as to what everyone else is getting!

    I am not sure how long they will be doing the boxes but it is $5 4x's a year for each season. This is their fall box, then you will get a Winter,Spring and Summer. I think this is a fun idea and glad that I got it. 

    While they last get one at

    Beauty Box Five-September

    What I got in my  September Beauty Box Five

    Nicka K New York-Eyelight Crayon $4.49
    Natural Style by FUBU Deep Conditioner & Co Wash-12 oz $9.99
    Sally Hansen Toe Spacer-$1.99
    My Beauty Spot Nail Polish-(set of 6) $24.99
    Chrislie Formulations 3-1 Eye Bright-$40 0.5oz

    I haven't tried anything out yet, but I am excited to give this conditioner and co-wash a try. I wish they wouldn't send sample packets just a little bit more because I don't know if I will be able to notice a difference. I swatched the eye pencil and it's a beautiful deep shade of purple so I can't wait to see if it smudges or not. I will be doing a favorites at the end of the month, maybe you will see one or more of these items in it! 

    Have you tried BB5 out yet?

    5 Fall Must Haves in my Handbag

     *Post is sponsored by U by Kotex and Linqia. These are my honest opinions, as always!

    I have been ready for cold weather since the first day of Summer. I am one of those weirdo's who loves the snow,rain and cold weather. I live in the South, and when the leaves start turning shades of orange and red I know Fall is near. It is actually just a week away, so I am exciting to share a few of my Fall Must Haves-well 5 of them at least! These are also 5 things that I carry in my purse usually in a makeup bag.

    My 5 Must Have Items for Fall:
    1.The U by Kotex with 3D Capture Core-The packaging is adorable and even though these are overnight, they are very slim and don't take up any space in my purse. I can keep them in my backpack, or laptop bag too. I don't just use them for overnight but they work great for that too. 
    2.Flower brushes from Wal-Mart I just picked these up last week and have already been playing with them.They are soft,fluffy and actually great quality for a drugstore brush. These are a must have because who doesn't love affordable brushes hehe
    3.Kleenex Slim Pack-I always seem to get some type of bug when the weather changes.These are great to have with you at all times.
    4.Hard Candy blush in Spicy &Sweet gives such a fresh overall color to you cheeks, love it!
    5. The Maybelline Nudes palette has became a quick favorite of mine! So easy to just put on a nice natural smoky eye, or dramatic nighttime eye.

    This is the box of Ultra Thin pads that I buy and prefer, you can't even tell they are there.
    This is what the box will look like, but with a lot of different cute packages of Kleenex. So be sure to check out your local Wal-Mart to pick up this cute little set. They also have tampons that come with the Kleenex slim pack which I will pick up eventually too.

    What are you fall must haves? I obviously want everything Pumpkin Scented or flavored but those don't go in my purse just into my belly hehe. Thanks for stopping by be sure to get your coupons!

    Lorac Pro 1 & 2 Do You Need Both?

     Price: $42 each palette -16 shadows
    each palette comes with Mini Behind The Scenes Eye Primer (which is also amazing)
    Amazing Pigmentation and Staying Power
    Very Blendable
    Great range of shadows with different finishes!

    (top row original pro palette colors, bottom row pro palette 2 swatches)
     These swatches are without primer or base, and only 1 swipe out of the palette onto the back of my hand! That is amazing quality and pigmentation!

    I didn't swatch each palette in their entirety because there are a lot of matte shades which are great for blending and building a great eye look I just wanted to show you the pigmentation on some of my go to shades in each palette. I also wanted so show you how black the black shadow is in both palettes. You can use this as a liner,in the outer V it is a great black shade. 

    I am in love with both of these , I think everyone can benefit from these palettes and create great looks. So easy to take from day to night from natural to dramatic all in one palette. I have both of these palettes in my personal and professional collection. Great for bridal work, so if you are an aspiring artist I suggest you get both of these. Lorac is one of my go to brands as a makeup artist and beauty lover. Their foundations are my holy grail and after buying the Lorac Pro palette I knew I was hooked for life. 

    If you have a birthday coming up, or even for the Holidays I suggest you ask for both of these.It is not an option, you have to have both of these in your life! I have seen glimpses of a Lorac Mega Pro palette coming out soon. My heart just skipped a beat thinking about it again, I don't know if I am prepared for it or not! If I can get my hands on it I will, Lorac is by far one of the best brands out there!

    Thank you for stopping by, if you have any other questions about the palettes please ask!

    *These palettes were paid for with my husbands money, and my opinions are not influenced by him in any way hehe.
