Friday Favorite: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation


Hey guys! This week’s Friday Favorite is Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua foundation. Now, I am not the type of person to spend a lot of money on high end makeup products. Ok, maybe sometimes. But, it KILLED me to spend this much on a foundation, when there are so many drugstore options. I bought this foundation about a year ago, last summer. I bought it with some money I got for my birthday, and decided to splurge. I had heard a ton of reviews on it, and I decided to try it out.


The product comes in a plastic bottle with a squeeze top. The consistency of this foundation is very liquid-y. It is a water based foundation, so it is really easy to blend. So last summer, when I bought this, I had the lady at the counter color match me, and she said I was in the shade 20 BEIGE, which I kind of already knew, because I had looked at the website for months deciding whether or not to buy this.


Since I used this foundation last summer, I hadn’t been able to wear it until now, because it was too dark for me, but since now I have a tan, I started using it again. Before you apply it, make sure to shake it up. I apply it using my fingers…that is the best way because if you use a brush or a sponge, it will soak up all of the product because it is very runny. I use about a dime size amount, and dot it all over my face and blend it in.


It has a really strong perfume scent, which doesn’t bother me, but if you are sensitive to scent, you wont like this. Once its all blended in, my face looks absolutely flawless. It doesn’t quite have full coverage, but it covers really well. I barely have to use any concealer on this and it just looks and feels so good. it doesn’t even feel like I have makeup on. It also contains SPF 15.


I have tried a lot of foundations, and this is the best one I have found yet. It is $45, yes, but I have had it for a year now, and there is still a lot left. It is Chanel, and there is a reason its so expensive. Its cause its awesome and its totally worth the money.

The drugstore foundation that reminds me of this foundation is Loreal’s True Match Lumi foundation. That one is very runny, and seems to be water based also. It is very easy to blend, but still does not give the coverage that the Chanel does. It is a good foundation, but it doesn’t compare to this one. I dont know what is in this foundation, but it is amazing. I recommend this to everyone I know. I just notice such a difference when I wear this compared to other foundations. It lasts all day too. Its just magic.

Go on over to the Chanel counter the next time you’re at the mall and they will give you a sample. A warning though, you WILL want to buy this when you try it! But, just remember, it will last you forever!

Let me know if you try this out! Thanks for reading!

Top 5 Summer Lip Colors


Hi guys! Today’s post is my top 5 favorite summer lip colors/glosses! I am loving wearing bright colors on my lips recently and I hope you guys like these!

1. Maybelline Colorsensational Pink Collection Lipstick in Make Me Pink ($6, drugstores)


Maybelline just released this new collection, and all of the shades are gorgeous! I picked up this one in Make Me Pink, and it is such a pretty pink color, and it has a hint of purple to it. These lipsticks are very moisturizing and have good lasting power.

2. Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake ($5, drugstores)


These Revlon Lip Butters are very moisturizing and are more like a balm. They are very sheer, and you have to build up the color to make it as opaque as this swatch. This is a blue based pink color that is very shiny and great for summer.

3. Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Flamingo Pose ($6, drugstores)


I have been loving Milani lately! I love their blushes, and this line of lipsticks is sooo pretty! The gold packaging is fab, and the colors are really nice. This color here is picking up really orange on camera, but in person it is the perfect pink-y orange coral. It is very opaque, so I use a very light hand and sheer this color out so it is wearable. These lipsticks smell like watermelon and are very soft.

4. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Cherish ($7, drugstores)


I own 5 of these balm stains, and I love them. They are like a tinted lip balm, but you can build up the color and they will stain your lips. This color here is very similar to the Revlon Lip Butter I mentioned, but this one has more purple to it and it is a stain, so it wears longer. These smell minty and the packaging is like a twist-up crayon.

5. MAC Lipglass in Pink Lemonade ($15, MAC stores)


I had to mention a lipgloss! This is the first lipgloss I ever bought from MAC. It is a pretty coral color that can be worn alone, or with just about any pink lipstick. It has that signature vanilla scent that all of the MAC lipsticks have, and its not sticky.

Hope you guys liked this post, let me know what lip colors yall have been loving for the summertime in the comments section! Have a great day, and thanks for reading!

Best Online Shopping Websites

Hi Guys! Although I LOVE going shopping…I mean, who doesn’t? The bright lights, the new freshly folded clothes, the mannequins dressed perfectly, and the thrill of walking out with that brand new shopping bag full of goodies…its pretty amazing. LOL. But, sometimes I like to shop online too! I have come up with my TOP 5 most favorite places to shop online. Enjoy!



This is my favorite shop of all. This is is a Flash-sale site, so they have different events every day. I am in Texas, so the events start at 10 am here. You can view upcoming events by brand, so you can set your alarm to remind you to get on if there is something you want. You have to get on the website early because things sell out fast. I have gotten some great deals on this website. They are owned by Nordstrom, so most of what they have are Nordstrom brands. They have everything from clothing, accessories, home goods, shoes, and beauty products, and they even have clothes and things for men and kids. They have great customer service, and they have an app for ipad and iphone. Check it out!



This website shows a different completed outfit everyday, and you can buy the entire outfit, or you can just buy the certain pieces that you like separately. I like this website because it is reasonably priced, and it gives me ideas for outfits. They always have the latest trends, and the outfits are adorable.



This place is THE BEST for accessories. They have jewelry, scarves, sunglasses, hats, belts, bags…anything you need to complete an outfit. Everything is super cheap too!



Do I really need to explain here? You know you love Forever21. The website has everything that the stores have, without the clutter! The shipping is really fast, too.



I love this website. First off, free shipping. On anything, all the time. Most of the time, its next day shipping too! They have clothes, shoes, bags..and they have men and kids stuff too. You can find some really great deals.

Where do you guys like to shop? Let me know!

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

Friday Favorite – Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink

Hey Guys, HAPPY FRIDAY! Hope everyone had a great week. Today’s Friday Favorite is Milani’s Baked Blush in Dolce Pink!


This blush is so freakin pretty! It is this beautiful pink color swirled with a golden shimmer. I have been trying to get my hands on these blushes for so long, why are they so hard to find?! The only place around me that carries them is Wal Mart, but I think CVS carries them too. Anyway, Wal Mart never had them stocked, I would check every time, and finally a couple of days ago, I checked and they had every color except Luminoso, which is the one I really wanted.

Honestly, I want all of them. I really couldn’t decide which one to get. I really like pink, so I decided to go with this one. First off, the packaging is pretty cute, I like the flip top lid. It also can flip up on the bottom, and it has a mirror and a little brush under there.


I paid $6.97 for this blush, and I think that’s a pretty good deal for a blush this good. It is so pigmented, you only need a little on your brush. It has a golden shimmer that gives a pretty glow to the cheeks, and you don’t even need to use a highlight!



Have you guys tried these blushes? What do you all think of them?

Thanks for reading, have a great weekend! 🙂
