Avon Haul

Hello MJF stars,
I know its been a while since I did an Avon haul but I have not seen anything from Avon that I had to have but when I saw these items I had to get them. So lets get into what I got.


When I saw these Disney Villains items I had to get them because you know I love Disney and the villains. They also had the princess but I wanted the villains but I might get the Princesses items too.

Disney My Favorite Villains Night Shirt

So I got the Disney My Favorite Villains Night Shirt which was $19.99. I got the 2x/3x which I wear 3x in shirts so this nigh shirt was not as long as most but I was going to wear it as shirt with pants or short it just looks like a long shirt it comes couple inches above my knee if you are wondering. It is also light weight so it will be a good for the summer when its hot.


Disney Villains Watch
The last thing I got was the Disney Villains watch which was $24.99. I really love this watch its not to small for my wrist because I wear 7" to 7.5" bracelets. 

I really love these new Disney items they selling and I hope they get more Disney items.

If you like to order these items my Avon rep and I would really appreciate you go to the tab above and order from her.

Products I used:
Orly top2 bottom base Coat
Sally Hansen xtreme wear Breezy Blue, Blue Me Away! And Sea-ing Stars
Milani Quick Shine Top Coat

To get the marble/ water look I used the plastic bag method which was my first time trying it and I think it came out pretty good. If you like me to do a tutorial on how to do this let me know I can do one or you can just google it because I found it on the internet. I used breezy blue as my base color and then added blue me away which made a pretty marble or water look like in the ocean or a pool. To add the effect of  light shining off the water I put Sea-ing Stars which is a pretty glitter topper which made it even prettier. I'm really happy with this mani and I can't wait to try this method again with other colors.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks mani for Manicure Mondays.

First Eye Look: Makeup Revolution Mermaids Forever- Purple and blue look

Hello my MJF stars,
I'm here to show you my first eye look using the Mermaids Forever eyeshadow palette. When I saw the purples and the blues I wanted to do an eye look with them so this is the result. 


Products I used:
NYC City Proof eye primer Universal 
Makeup Revolution Mermaids Forever Palette:
Urchin: Above Crease and bottom lash
Waves: Crease and bottom lash
Splash: outer v
Myth: Eyelid and inner bottom lash
Forever: Brow Bones 
Klean Color Hardcore liquid eyeliner black 
Covergirl Plumpify Bastpro very Black Mascara 

When I saw Urchin which is a pretty purple blue matte that I thought would look really pretty with Waves which is pretty shimmery blue. Since I didn't want to do a full on blue eye look so I decided to put Myth on my lid which looks pretty with the purple and blue. I used splash to deepen the outer v. I really like how this eye look came out and can't wait to do another eye look with the mermaids forever eyeshadow palette.

Review: Makeup Revolution Mermaids Forever Ultra Eyeshadows Palette

Hello my MJF stars,
I here to give you my thoughts about the Mermaids Forever 32 ultra eyeshadows palette by Makeup Revolution.
I have been wanting to try Makeup Revolution products for awhile and my Ulta store finally got some of there products in. So lets get into what I thought right?!

Mermaids Forever Palette in box

Mermaids Forever out of box
I wish that the palette was the pretty metallic blue like the box and that they had the name of the palette on the side of the palette not just on the back but I can live it. 


Mermaids Forever Palette
As you can see there is a lot of eyeshadows which I thought would be a little bit bigger than they are because the picture on the back of the palette does not show the actual size and ulta did not have a the palette displayed like the nyx eyeshadows. They are about the size of a nickel.

Mermaids Forever close up of eyeshadows
Top with flash and bottom no flash
This palette is mostly shimmers than mattes in finishes which you know I love glitter/shimmery eyeshadows but there are few matte eyeshodows. So lets see the swatches right?! Oh I also have to say that some reason they did not put the names on the protective sheet like they do in the UK version so I had find it online. So I'm going to have to figure out how to put the names for the eyeshadows.

top to bottom from the left side first two columns


top to bottom and the next two columns

top to bottom next two columns

top to bottom last two columns

All of the swatches are swatched with out primer on bare skin. As you can see the matte colors are not to pigmented on bare skin which is a bummer but I did do an eye look with Urchin on an eye look that I'm will be post looked as pigmented as in the pan with an eye primer so I think the ones that did not look as pigmented on the swatches with look fine over primer. So I always recommended to use a base or primer with any eyeshadows. I really love all of the eyeshadows. I really love the blue and greens. I think this is a really nice palette and I think you can create colorful and neutral eye looks which is nice. I would recommended this palette because it a great price and you get a lot of different colors to work with. The textures of the eyeshadows are nice too. They are smooth and had minimal to no fall out.  I can't wait to try more of there products. 

Have you tried Makeup Revolution products? If so which ones would you recommend me to trying next?

Coat Couture Mani

Hello my MJF stars,
I have another mani for Manicure Mondays. I have been wanting to wear this nail polish since I saw it and bought it from grocery outlet. It was so pretty in the bottle and different from the rest of my collection.

outside lighting with flash

outside lighting no flash

Products I used:
Orly Top2 Bottom basecoat
Essie Coat Couture
Nail art purple glitter Flower
Milani Quick Shine Top Coat

As you can see its gray/purple with blue shimmer in it which is so pretty. I wish this was not a matte polish which you know I'm not a fan of. I know it was a matte polish when buying it but it was so pretty that I had to try it. It looks so pretty with a top coat which you know I always use a top coat. I also added a pretty purple flower that looked so pretty with this color. But I'm sad to say it chipped on my on the third day of wearing it. I don't know if it was the Orly top2 bottom basecoat or the Coat Couture. I will have to wear it again with a different base coat. 

I hope you enjoyed this weeks mani for manicure Monday's.
Do you own this polish? Does it chip fast on you? Let me now below.

Influenster Kiss Brand Challenge Prize

Hello my MJF stars,
Awhile ago I received a email that I'm the winner of the Kiss brand challenge from Influenster. If don't know what influenster is it is were you try products for free and give your thoughts about the products and also do brand challenges. So I received some Kiss products in the Holiday Jingle Voxbox and did the challenge which I was a winner of.

Here is me unboxing my winnings:



So I received all Kiss products because that is the brand challenge I won of course so lets see what I got. I got a pair of Kiss imPress Manicure in the design called So, So Stellar which is a nice gray/nude color and with skull nail art which you know I love skulls so I might have to put them on something else. I really don't wear press on nail so I might wear them on vacation or when I don't feel like painting my nails. I also got Kiss Waterless Tattoos in the design KaPow! which has rose and hearts which I love to wear tattoos on my nails and can't wait to try these. I got some Kiss EverEZLash Trio Short Combo which I'm excited to try because I never tried individual lashes and been wanting to try more fake lashes. The last thing I got was a surprise because it was not shown in the email which is the Kiss Strip Lash Adhesive Clear. I'm so happy to get this lash glue because I like the one I got in the holiday voxbox but I wanted to try a lash glue that clear and with brush. It might be easier to apply with a brush because the one I got in the voxbox was a squeeze tube. Also if I want to wear color eyeliner it be nice to use clear instead of black lash glue I got in the voxbox.

I'm so excited to try all these goodies thanks to Kiss and influenster.

If you like to join let me know and I can sent you a invite through email. You can dm me on instagram or private message me on blog or facebook so no one sends you spam.
