Autumn Glam Makeup

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone is doing well. I haven't done a tutorial in awhile and I wanted to do another Fall look, but with a hint of glam. To me glitter is glam lol. I decided to add some gold glitter to the look. This can be worn to dinner parties or on a night out during the Fall. I hope you enjoy this quick and simple tutorial. :)

#3 Outer or outer corner.
#4 Brow bone
Add your favorite Black Liquid eyeliner.
Above the black eyeliner add any gold eyeliner.
Use black mascara for your lashes.

#2.Mid Lower lash line.
#4 Inner Tear duct.
Add your favorite black or brown eyeliner to you waterline and you are done. :)

Review-Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm In Sultry

Hello lovelies!! I am excited to bring you this new lip product called Revlon Colorburst Matte Lip Balm. I picked it up few weekends ago at Target. Revlon also has a Colorburst Lacquer Balm line as well. I decided to buy the Revlon Colorburst Matte Lip Balm instead because I have been really into matte lipsticks lately.I really enjoy Revlon's lip products and was excited when I saw this.

The Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm retails at $6.49-$8.99.

 Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in the shade Sultry.
This color is a mauvey soft burgundy color. At least that is how it looks on my lips. The color is not too bright or dark. I think this color is gorgeous and great is for every day wear. It would also look great on any skin tone.

                                                                 Very Pigmented
                                                                 Buttery Texture


Over all, I am in love with the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm. It applies on evenly and smoothly and has a minty smell and tingle to when you apply it.  It also has a buttery texture and is light weight on the lips. The pigmentation of the lip product is rich like that of a lipstick.I think Revlon should have called this product Revlon Colorburst Matte Lip Crayon. Usually with Matte lipsticks it feels drying on the lips,but not with the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm. Even after a few hours it still felt moisturizing and not too dry.As far as the staying power, I was surprised that I still had a decent amount of product after I ate my lunch. I am in love with this product. I love how it has the moisture of a balm but the pigmentation of a lipstick. This product is a win. Revlon never disappoints when it comes to their lip products. I am defiantly going to purchase more and will have a review on those. 

You can purchase this product at your local drugstores,Target,Walmart,Ulta, and Drugstore.com.

 Hope you enjoyed this review and see you in my next blogpost lovelies!

Review The Nyx Runway Collection 10 Eyeshadow Palette In Secret World

As salaamu alaykum(peace be upon you) and hello  lovelies! I was looking through my makeup and stumbled upon this palette. When I opened it, this palette screamed Fall inspired eyeshadows. I should have included this palette in my Fall inspired eyeshadows blog post which you can view here. I was happy that I rediscovered Nyx's 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette The Run Way Collection in Secret World. Let's jump into the review.

 Nyx's 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette The Run Way Collection in Secret World Retails between $8-$10.(0.49oz). The palette contains 10 eyeshadows that have earth toned colors and come in a mix of finishes from frosty to glitter eyeshadows.The colors in this palette are perfect colors to wear for the Fall season.

Blends very well

Glitter fall out


I applied these eyeshadows without a base. As you can see the pigmentation is great.

Perfect eyeshadow palette for the Fall .

Over all, I fell in love all over again with  Nyx's 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette The Run Way Collection in Secret World. The pigmentation is insane for the price of the palette. The eyeshadows feel buttery soft and blend very well. My only complaint is that the eyeshadows that contain the glitter has a bit of a fall out, but nothing like a baby wipe or a quick dusting off your cheeks with a highlighter brush can't fix. This palette is a rediscovered gem and I highly recommend this palette. I plan on purchasing other palettes from this line.

Hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful.

You can purchase this product at drugstore.com ,cherryculture.com, and amazon.com.

Thanks for taking time to read my blog. See you in my next blog post lovelies!

An Autumn Day At The Park

     As salaamu alaykum (peace be upon you) and hello lovelies!!! I feel like it has been forever since i last blogged. I have been so busy. I will leave that subject for another blog post. I wanted to share with you my Autumn day at the park. As some of you some of you may know,I love the Fall. I went to the park a few weeks ago with my husband,brother and my kids.(I didn't post pics of them for privacy reasons.) The weather was beautiful that day.During the Fall season in New Jersey the trees are just so beautiful. It is like someone painted the leaves with different colors. I wanted to capture Autumn from where I live and share them with you guys.Hope you enjoy lovelies! :) I highly recommend to view these photos in full screen.

The sky sky was so blue and the clouds looked so fluffy that day.

I took this pic while standing under the tree looking up. It was absolutely more beautiful in person.

Yellow sleeping willow tree. Gorgeous.

I loved the branches of this tree.

I took this pic standing behind the leaves. :)

    Yellow sleeping willow.. 

 I call this pic the lonely Autumn tree :)

Macro shot of the leaves...

This pic I took before we left. It was about to rain and I wanted to capture the grey clouds while it was sunny... I thought this shot came out really cool.

There is something about being around nature that is so serene and peaceful. I really enjoyed all the beautiful colorful trees.Sometimes we take for granted how beautiful the park really is. Hope you enjoyed this blog post! 

If you made a blog post taking pictures of Autumn this year I would love to see them. Leave your link in the comments section below.

As Always it has been a pleasure blogging guys. See you in my next blog post!

Stay Safe and warm!
