How I get defined faux micro-bladed Eyebrows || Benefit Cosmetics vs. Tarte cosmetics review

Happy Monday and great start to your week!!! This past weekend was sooo needed! I prioritized rest and unplugging on Saturday. It was soo good. I got some much needed one on one time time with my girl crew and even found out my dolly can sing 😳😍 it was sooo amazing!! Anywho, I have always had a love/ hate relationship with my brows ever since I over plucked them in High-school. (Major no-no) Im so thankful Ive been ablw to grow them a lot fuller then they were with my fave Lash serum However I love my brows to be super thick and Im only in the middle stage of my lash and brow journey so I love filling them in!

Ive been using the DIY detailing pen from Tarte for several months now and I absolutely love it. So much so that it is part of my My Holy Grail: Makeup Edition. When I looked thru the new products at Sephora at the beginning of the month and saw that Benefit cosmetics came out with a new Micro filling pen for brows I had to get it and try it out!

Benefit Cosmetics Brow Micro filling Pen
{deep brown used here}

Well I tried it out and love the fact that the microbladed look is made easy! It comes in 4 different shades. The pen creates the illusion of natural brow hair with three ultrafine lines in a single stroke. It is also designed to blend in with existing hairs, fill in gaps, and make brows appear where before there were none. This easy-to-apply formula looks natural and is waterproof, smudge-proof, and long-wearing! Such a great alternative right??? No pain, no commitment, no expensive price tag, just great brows.

Tarte Cosmetics DIY Detailing Pen
{dark brown used here}

Okay so This pen is the Tarte Cosmetics DIY detailing pen. It comes in 3 different shade that pretty much range from light, medium snd dark. It has a precision, angled brush tip that softly flicks on hair-like strokes with bristles that mimic real hair growth. It tints and fills in sparse areas to create the look of fuller brows while locking down for waterproof, sweatproof, and smudge-proof wear. It also includes a spoolie to comb through brows. As you can see there is a difference in shade color. I do think that it looks more natural to me. Which is why I would use this pen on a no makeup/ Fresh face type of day. Now when I wear My full face makep routine I would use the Micro filling eyebrow pen from Benefit to give my brows a more defined look.

Overall I give both of these pens a 10/10! It just depends on what specific look you ate going for. I also will incorporate both of the pens in my routine as I do love the way both look used together. ANOTHER ONE added to the Holy Grail🙌🏾

DRESS: Pink Lily {wearing M}

DEMIM JACKET: Pink Lily {wearing L}

BOOTIES: Red Dress

SNEAKERS: Shein

HAT: Amazon


Happy new week! Hope it’s a good one. I just love when you can take a staple piece and style it into multiple outfits. Today I took this super cute midi dress that comes in like four colors and dressed it up for a cute date night or it would also make a cute Valentine’s Day dress. You can make it more formal by adding heels or even pumps. I dressed it down by throwing on some cute sneakers that btw are the perfect dupe to the Steve Madden and Givenchy pair. I do love me a good dupe! I added a distressed white denim jacket which gave it the ultimate casual yet comfy look. I could definitely see me wearing this on a shopping trip to the mall followed by a good lunch with hubby.

I’ll be posting an actual try on video featuring both looks on my Instagram stories later, so make sure you’re following along!

Until next time…

Worth the hype or not: Barefoot Dreams blanket edition || & an amazing dupe

Happy Monday friends! Today I want to put into question what all the fuss is about over the ever so popular Nordstrom Barefoot Dreams blanket. For years now this blanket has been the most sought after, celebrity endorsing, blogger approved, rarely goes on sale but always sold out, not even cheaper on Amazon blanket that I personally have ever heard of… WHY???

Well as far as I went back on researching this I came to find out that this blanket was actually made popular by the Kardashians. Particularly Khloe Kardashian. She would be seen carrying the blanket in question alllll the time. In multiple scenes and pics. I don’t know if she was sponsored to or not but what I do know is that by looking at all the pics and videos it was all back when the Kardashians DID NOT look like the Kardashians that we know and see today. So that tells you without telling you lol😜

The blanket has also been approved by other celebrities like Christy Tiegen & Jennifer Garner just to name a few. But why is this blanket sooooo freakin popular when it’s just made of polyester??? Is it really worth all the hype? What is a good dupe for it?

Well of course I got the blanket from Nordstrom since I can’t give my real and honest review on it without actually having it. Personally I have used This blanket that my hubby legit fights me for (even tho it’s mine) for years now and it is the coziest most comfy and soft double Sherpa blanket that I literally take with me everywhere! It has been part of my holy grail for a while now & I was pretty happy with it and was not on the hunt for a replacement. Now with that being said, this is my job to try products and clothing items and in turn give my honest review and if along the way of trying those items I love it then they make the “holy grail” list. Just to give a lil clarity. I’m disclosing that because I will be comparing my current holy grail/fave blanket from VS Pink with the blanket in question BFDs along with the dupe option I’ve chosen from Pink Lily!

Ok so let’s start with a few specs of the blankets:

  • How big are the blankets:

BFDs- 54″ x 72″

VS Pink- 50″ x 60″

Pink Lily- 70″ x 44″

  • What are the blankets made of:

BFDs- 100% polyester microfiber

VS Pink- double sided Sherpa

Pink Lily – faux fur/ polyester

    How much are the blankets:
  • BFDs- $180.00
  • VS Pink- $59.95
  • Pink Lily- $94.00
    • Do they come in a variety of colors:

    BFDs- yes!

    VS Pink- No

    Pink Lily- yes!

    • How do they look:

    BFDs-

    VS Pink-

    Pink Lily-

    Click pic to shop!

    Ok so here’s what you came here for… my thoughts on the BFDs blanket is this: I can definitely see why and how everyone snd their mother really likes the blanket. Over all it is amazingly soft, It feels exactly like the Bare foot dreams cardigan (if you already have one for reference) all the designs are super cute and they have quite a bit to choose from! Honestly all 3 blankets feel pretty much the same. The only difference besides the size and physical appearance of the 3 were that the BFDs was literally a smidge bit thicker. I’m thinking of doing a fun lil test later today on my insta stories to see which blanket feels the best while blind folded that include hubby, Dolly , Anjee mama & my mommy dearest and see their picks! Follow me on Instagram Here to check it out!

    So my final thoughts on this overly coveted blanket is- Yes! It is super trendy but NO it is not worth the hype nor the high end price tag! Now please don’t get me wrong I do love the blanket a lot! So much so I am now using it as my permanent blanket. And if you are a person who doesn’t mind dropping 2 bills for a blanket and you really want to then yes! Do what makes you happy, especially if you can afford it. I can tell you won’t be disappointed. However there is absolutely no way that I would spend that much for a blanket outside of this review. So, If you are a person who loves a good dupe then the below blankets are perfect for you! They feel almost identical to the BFDs one but are a much reasonable price tag. Also hubby is obsessed with it. He ended up claiming for himself LOL! While Dolly took over my VS Pink one.

    Some of the options are actually on sale right now so it’s a great opportunity to take advantage. Click any pic to shop item:

    Here is another dupe option (also on sale) that I have not personally tried but have heard good things about. This was definitely fun to do above anything else. Looking forward to doing many more reviews. If you have a specific thing you would like me to review pleas let me know below! Until next time…
