OOTD/FOTD Vegas Edition

Why hello ladies and gentleman!

I had a nice time in Las Vegas over the weekend. If you read my last post then you know that my reason for being in “Sin City” was for an European Car Festival (Wuste).

It was was definitely hot and the wind was crazy, but I had a nice time seeing people that I don’t get to see very often! I also met a bunch of awesome people as well. My boyfriend, Todd, and I always enjoy going to these events together. Our friend also drove down from Sacramento, so it was awesome to see him as well!

Let’s jump to the things that you guys care about!

This was my outfit for main day of the festival, Saturday. I wanted my skirt to be tight fitting because of how windy it was!!

  • Blouse: H&M (Gift from the lovely Todd)
  • Belt: Forever 21
  • Skirt: Forever 21
  • Wedges: Urban Outfitters

I wanted to keep it simple, and I actually got a lot of compliments from random people! Yay!

Now, my makeup:

I decided to skip the BB cream so that I could reapply my sunscreen as needed. I learned that matte lip products are not the best things for 20+ mph winds, but I managed! Ok, it was so windy that I thought that my false eyelashes were going to just fly right off of my face! They lasted throughout the day though! It was my first time wearing them in public, and I felt fabulous. I ended up cutting my Callas lashes and only putting them on the outer corner of my eye. They were a lot easier to apply that way (great for beginners like me!).

Clinique Cheek Pop: Peach Pop Review

_IGP9827 _IGP9828

Finals have came to an end, and I cannot express how happy I am that it is OVER! I haven’t posted in a while, and I would like to apologize. I had to give 100% of my focus on school, and I will definitely mention that it payed off! I have one more class until I receive my AA, and I am planning on transferring for further education! I haven’t decided my major yet, but I am going to be thinking about that A LOT this summer!

I made a friend in my history class this semester, and he surprised me with this blush a few weeks ago!! I helped him pick out a Mother’s Day gift and sent him my notes on a few occasions, so this was his way of saying thank you!! It has been hard making friends since I moved across state, but I found a few great ones this semester!

I was expecting this blush to be a tad larger than it actually is, but I know it will last. The packing is solid, and the pigmentation is decent. The best part is the daisy!! I LOVE DAISIES! If you haven’t figured that out by now ;). I would say that the finish is more natural, and the color can definitely be built up! It leans more towards the pink side compared to Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy. I love both products, and I definitely want more colors from each line.

You can see above that this is a sheer blush. You can definitely pack it on more heavily than this though. If you are interested in a natural flush, then this product is definitely for you! I think that this is great for a no makeup-makeup look for spring/summer.

This product comes in three other shades, and runs for $21/0.12 oz at Sephora. That is $175 per oz, and Tarte’s blush is $130/oz. I am very happy to have a cheek pop because of the novelty of having a literal blushing daisy! After doing the math,  I would rather have the Tarte blush. Tipsy is more pigmented, and the cheek pop doesn’t come with a mirror. I do want more of these because of how pretty they are, but I would buy the rest of the colors that I want from Tarte beforehand.

Pros:

  • It makes you happy looking at it! (:
  • Build-able
  • Natural finish
  • Long lasting (It lasted all day on me with no primer!)
  • Luminous coral sheen

Cons:

  • Sheer (if you like vibrant colors)
  • More expensive per oz compared to Tarte’s 12-hour blush
  • No mirror

Blushing Daisy Score: 9/10

I do really like this blush, and I really appreciate the kind gesture of my friend surprising me with it! Thank you Chris if you are reading this!

This is definitely a blush that I do want in my arsenal, and I have used it a lot since it was given to me! My review might sound negative, but it is not!! I think it’s a nice blush to own.

Do you own any cheek pops? What do you think of them?
