Lifestyle Makeup : trèStiQue Review of Three Products

Chicks And Salsa is fortunate and have been on the radar for this brand for a while.  My little sister Shelly was sneaky and ‘borrowed’ my trèStiQue lipsticks on her last visit to Georgia, so I was grateful when I received some new goodies from the brand. (Check out all of our beauty posts here.)

trèStiQue is best known for making makeup that is easy to use and carry! For example, their eyeliner has a sharpener BUILT INTO the pencil, how convenient is that! I know that I have been frustrated by not having a sharpener when I needed it SO MANY TIMES.  It’s the double duty that all their products include that make them truly unique.

Check out my video review below or on YouTube.

“I created trèStiQue to solve a problem. In the midst of building a career, traveling and starting a family, my beauty routine just couldn’t keep up – my makeup bag was messy and heavy to carry, full of complicated products that didn’t perform the way I wanted them to. It was time to reevaluate the way we use, carry + apply makeup.”

– Jennifer Kapahi, Co-Founder of trèStiQue

The Look

Eye Crayon in Venetian Gold

Eye Pencil in Santorini Black

Lip Crayon in Tuscan Wine

All three of these products have a buttery soft application that required little to no pressure to apply. Its creamy texture makes it effortlessly fall onto the skin in a way that looks natural yet glamorous. The color of the lip crayon is STUNNING and, as you can see in the video, it is the red that dreams are made of.

I hope you enjoyed this review, I enjoy learning and sharing new beauty finds with you! Check out all of our beauty posts here.

Yay! Today is PRIME DAY! A day where we get to shop at our favorite one stop shop for things that we love FOR LESS!! I have rounded up some of my MUST HAVE beauty products. So if you are a junkie for beauty products, you have come to the right place!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Kabuki Brush $9.95

With over 11,000 reviews, you can’t go wrong with this foundation brush. I have not used my beauty blender (also on sale for $13.99 ) since discovering this brush. I find the way that this brush paints the foundation on is just perfect for the finish I crave. So if you use a foundation brush for your make up, scoop this up!

Revlon Volumizer Hot Brush $53.99

Unless you live under a rock, you have undoubtedly seen this brush all over social media. If you have hair that is chin length or longer, this brush can bring life to it within minutes! Combine it with my favorite Briogeo Volumizer and you are good to go!

Loreal Lash Paradise Mascara Set $10.44

This top rated masacara now comes in an adorable set (mascara + primer) that is perfect to keep or to give as a gift! I know Sonia and I use mascara every single day, so if you do too, this deal is for you!

Wet Hair Brushes $15.99

I have two daughters and starting off each and every day with hair care is a PAIN! Ever since discovering these brushes, there is less fuss in the mornings. Happy kids = happy mom right? I recommend these ten out of ten times. It is also perfect for throwing into your beach bag before your next vacay!

Stila Glitter and Glow Eyeshadow $24

I wear this with Indian clothes every single time, and each time I get so many compliments! This glitter and glow stick does not crease and makes quite the statement! Layer it over any eyeshadow color you want, you will love it!

Tweezerman Tweezers $13.77

Ladies, if you don’t keep this handy tweezer in your car for last minute touch ups, you are missing out! I have grabbed for my tweezers hundreds of times before running out of the car to pluck a stray eyebrow hair. This angled tweezer gets it every time ..THE FIRST TIME. You are welcome!

Benefit Bronzing Powder $24.25

For those of you who are new to contouring or worried about going overboard, a powdered bronzer is a great place to start! Run this lightly under your cheekbones for an angular look that is slimming!

Trestique – Everything is 30% OFF

I have shared my love for these multi-function make up finds before! And with the whole collection now on sale, I highly recommend grabbing one of their eye popping lipsticks or eyeliners!

Oval Brush Set $9.99

I use these brushes DAILY for contouring, they are soft and make the perfect line every time. The smaller ones are good for nose contouring and the wider ones work well for the forehead and cheekbones. Combine this with the Benefit bronzer and you are good to go!

Garnier Fructis Shampoo+Conditioner Set $15.19

If it is time to replenish your hair products at home, this is a good time to do it. You simply cannot beat the price of this set!

Hopefully you found some of these items to be useful additions to the products you have at home. Prime Day is always an exciting time to scoop up some new goodies for less! Also be sure to stop by our Amazon Store to see what is in our cart!!

Throwing the Party of the Lifetime (Literally!)

For two years I have been planning on throwing an epic “Decades Party” because so many loved ones in my family were born ten years apart.  This was the year to celebrate all my family members born in 1949, 1959, 1969, 1979, 1989, 1999, and 2009! What a great opportunity to get everyone together to celebrate life and love.

Celebrating 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and 70!

Last year we collaborated with the Odyssey and set off on a memorable lunch cruise.  After seeing the Amethyst Deck, I set my sights on Lake Michigan for the party.  Coordinating the details of the event was easy thanks to my events coordinator. As far as cost goes, the brunch cruise is a great deal for what you get – good food, amazing service, and the best view of the city from the water.

We ordered 5” cakes for each birthday which made for a fun centerpiece to the room.  I also ordered these printouts from Etsy along with these buttons.  Between all that and the décor of the room itself, it was a really beautiful celebration. 

Since time truly is the greatest gift, there was no better way for us to spend time together than on the Odyssey! No stress, no planning, no cleanup- it was a dream!

A very special thank you to the Odyssey staff for making this special occasion so memorable. We will be back!
