HUDA Beauty Palette Review

All over Instagram I have seen the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette. I was hesitant to get it because I wasn’t sure if the bold 3D metals would stay on my eyes. Well, I waited too long and the palette sold out before I could get it! I have been waiting to get the palette on the Sephora site for over a month but it has been sold out and not restocked!

I was about to order it on her personal site, but she is located in Dubai and the shipping was really expensive. I just so happened to walk into Sephora yesterday and decided to walk back to her display and see if it was in-stock. Well, it WAS! I was so excited I grabbed one before I could think and got it.

Today, I tried my first Huda look that I call the ‘Huda Rose Gold Effect Look.’ I used the 3D Rose Gold Medal along with Flamingo in the crease and Black Truffle on the outer corner. I have to say I LOVE IT! I didn’t use a primer and the shadows stayed in place all day. The one thing I will say, is the photo above didn’t do it justice. The colors really popped  when you see it in person and they have that bold lavish effect I absolutely love.
This palette is a definite 10 for me! See more on my INSTA @HeyitsCarlyRae

Ballet BABY

So a lot of you all of been writing in or snapping me asking me what I use on my eyes. Well, here’s a secret tip: I have been using the new Stila eyeshadow from Ulta. I saw it on display and I love anything that glitters or shimmers so I decided to give it a try.

I used it over a white base shadow and it went on smoothly and dried really fast, which I loved. It gave me a really nice shimmer and I got so many compliments on my makeup today when I wore this shadow. I was able to wear it all day without it moving or looking like it was ‘melting’ off.
I definitely love this new Stila product. I love the shimmer and I love the fact is act
ually dries and fast! When I do my makeup in the morning I usually only have 5-10 minutes and this is definitely a product ti”m going to keep using!
Have YOU tried this product? COMMENT below your favorite shimmer shadow you use!

Peak Cosmetics: 3D Fiber Lashes

I’ve had so many write-ins about what I use on my lashes. Well I usually can’t go anywhere without using my 3D Fiber Lash Kit from Peak Cosmetics. I was sent their lash kit as well as their amazing lip kits and I absolutely love their entire line!
The lash kit is one of my favorites because there are two steps. One is for a ‘base’ or Application Gel that basically adds a sticky coat and then there is a feather like finish known as the ‘Natural Fibers’ that you apply directly after and then again seal your lashes with the Application Gel.

At first I had no idea how it would but after I followed the steps the first time I found it super simple. The Natural Fibers is basically feathers that stick to your lashes. Think of fake lashes only easy to apply on your own lashes. It gives you the same kind of effect on your lashes that I absolutely love!
It really does make your lashes have that 3D effect that I love! This is definitely a mascara you guys want to check-out! 🙂

Comment below and let me know your favorite mascara and if you’ve tried their mascara yet!
Be sure to add me on SnapChat: HeyitsCarlyRae or Follow me on Instagram: HeyitsCarlyRae to WATCH me apply this mascara. I’m also featuring videos today!

Nail Polish: Habit Cosmetics

The best part about my Summer Gel Nails is the amazing Habit Cosmetics Nail Polish! It is gorgeous! The best part of the nail polish is it uses Myrrh extract and is the only nail polish brand that uses that which naturally strengthens your nails…. which we all know those of us that are nail polish fanatics (like me) that when we paint our nails so many times are nails start becoming weak.
