Beauty Wishlist // August 2015

It's been awhile since I've posted here and it's been awhile since I've done a beauty wishlist post, so I thought I'd just do one for you guys today! I'm thinking about doing these monthly, so let me know if you guys would be interested in seeing a monthly beauty wishlist post. 


1. Morphe 350 Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette

We all know I'm like the queen of neutral eyeshadows, since I buy and own so many! But this palette is just screaming my name! It's so pretty and I'm obsessed with my Morphe eyeshadows. Next time I place an order with Morphe, this palette will definitely be purchased!

2. Becca Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfecector in Champagne Pop

At first, I wasn't going to splurge and get this but I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up splurging real soon like as soon as my Sephora gets it back in stock. It was in stock yesterday but then today it's not in stock. I couldn't get to Sephora yesterday so :( But anyways, this is such a pretty highlighter. I've seen so many swatches and it just looks gorgeous and I need it in my makeup collection!

3 & 4. Too Faced Melted Lipsticks in Chihuahua & Violet

I've been wanting these for awhile, but just haven't gotten around to getting them yet. I think Chihuahua is such a pretty color. I've also been into purple lips lately and Violet is the perfect purple lip color! 

5. Smashbox Primer Water

I've heard some YouTubers raving about this and I really want to get my hands on it and try it! I think instead of going with the full size, I'm going to get the baby travel size, just to see if I like it because even though people have been raving about it, I've also heard some not so good things about it. Have any of you guys tried it? Let me know what you think! 

6. Tarte Amazonia Clay Blush in Captivating

I've wanted this blush for a really long time now, and I've been to three different Sephora's and three different Ulta's and none of them have this blush! I'm probably going to have to order it online, which I hate ordering things online because I've had problems with things getting broken in the mail. :( But this is such a pretty color and I'd love to have it in my blush collection! 

7. Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette 

I was planning on getting this palette right when it came out, but then I didn't get it because I wasn't really sure if I needed it. And then I decided that since I have all of the other Naked palettes that I do in fact need this palette. I just haven't made it to Sephora to pick it up! Maybe once champagne pop gets back in stock I'll pick this up too! 

Alright, that's all for my beauty wishlist for August! Let me know what products are currently on your wishlist in the comments! :)

NYX Extra Creamy Lipstick in Thalia: Review & Swatch!

I am obsessed with neutral lipsticks. Especially the neutral lipsticks that are similar to what Kylie Jenner would wear. Her lipstick always looks flawless. When I saw the NYX Extra Creamy Lipstick in Thalia, I knew I had to pick it up because it looked like the perfect Kylie color. I know people hate when I describe lipsticks as a Kylie color, but this really looks like a Kylie Jenner lip color. 


Thalia is a super creamy brownish berry color. The formulation of this lipstick is really nice. It's super creamy and doesn't feel dry on my lips. This color wears really nicely too. I can get a few hours of wear before the color starts fading. 


Here's a swatch! 


I picked up this lipstick at Ulta for around $6.

My Morphe Brushes Eyeshadows: Review & Swatches!

I had been wanting to order from Morphe Brushes for a really long time, like ever since I first heard about them. But every time I would get ready to order, all of the eyeshadows I wanted were out of stock! Well, finally after waiting for a real long time, all of the eyeshadows I wanted were back in stock and I got to place an order! 




I picked up some of the eyeshadow refill pans, which are $2.29 a piece! How awesome is that price? I also picked up a palette so that I could have a safe place to store my eyeshadows. I really like the quality of the palette. It seems pretty sturdy. And it comes with a huge mirror, which is really nice! 



Quick review of the eyeshadows before we get into the closeup pictures and swatches! I am really impressed with overall quality of these eyeshadows. They're super pigmented, they all apply and blend really nicely. I was just really surprised because with the price of these eyeshadows, you wouldn't think they'd be as nice of quality as they are, but these really remind me of MAC eyeshadows. That's how good they are!

Now let's get into the closeups and swatches! 



Cream Puff


Glisten


Deep Skin


Caramelized

Mysterious


Marbleized

Over on my YouTube channel, I posted a video featuring my Morphe eyeshadows. It's a haul, makeup tutorial, and review all in one video. 


You can find the Morphe eyeshadows on their website for $2.29 a piece. They also have pre-made palettes and brushes that are super affordable. 

Have you guys tried any products from Morphe? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!

ELF Blush Palette in Light: Review & Swatches!

It's no secret that I have an obsession with blush. I have so many in my personal collection, which doesn't make sense to me because there's only so much blush I can use! And then since I'm building my makeup artist kit more and more each day, I have a whole bunch in my kit which makes more sense because I need different colors for different clients skin tones. Anyways, when I saw that ELF had blush palettes I was like "Ummm YES!" I ended up just getting the palette in Light because that's the colors that work best for my fair skin. There is a Dark palette, which I'm thinking about getting to put into my makeup artist kit, and if I do I'll post a review! 


It wouldn't be a normal Chelseamakeup14 review, if I didn't review the packaging. I really like this. I think it's a great size, especially for travel. The four colors in this palette would go with so many different eyeshadow looks, that you wouldn't need to pack any other blushes, just this palette. 

Like I said, this quad comes with four different blush colors. You get a bubblegum pink color, a darker bubblegum pink color, a peachy color with glitter, and a bronzy color (which would be great for sculpting your face!). These blushes are insanely pigmented! When applying these, I have to remember to use a light hand because it's easy to get too much product. I think these wear really nicely, and I can continue to see color on my cheeks throughout the day. 


Now here's a swatch of the blushes! 


I found this blush palette at Target for around $6. I've also seen it at Walmart. You can also find it on the ELF website

Have you tried the ELF blush palette? What do y'all think? Let me know in the comments below! :)
