Merry Christmas- if you celebrate! If not…well check out a new favorite way to rock a red lip! I wore this look to our Vegas Lifestyle Influencers Christmas in Paris dinner at the Oh La La Bistro… & fell in love! Normally when I rock a red lip, I go more for a neutral or smoky eye…but I swung this burgundy base on a whim & I’ll be repeating this again for sure! I bought Makeup Geek eyeshadows AGES ago…do you guys want to see more using them? I don’t have any of their new releases so let me know if they’d even be of interest! Either way- this post is the first in a series I’m doing in 2018 with Home in High Heels. Keep reading to see more! [Read more…]
After reviewing the Gorgeous Cosmetics Seasonal Quad (see it here!) I knew I was pretty in love with the formula. Today I’m chatting about the 8-Pan Fashion Palette which is comprised of shades you can also buy in singles. For me personally, I’d describe the overall tone as wearable with richly pigmented bonuses. & one shade in here- oh baby. Keep reading to see all my thoughts & an eye look I keep repeating for date night! [Read more…]
After I posted about some of my absolute favorite hot tools yesterday here, I got quite a few compliments on my hair! What a lot of commenters didn’t know is that the majority of it was extensions. I chopped a good chunk of my hair off to donate awhile back & turn to extensions to play with long hair again. These are the Irresistible Me Silky Touch Clip-In Hair Extensions in Silky Rosewood…& I’m pretty much addicted! Keep reading to check them out! [Read more…]
When I was perusing the Colour Pop website for the first time all I knew is that I was in a buying mood. I bought a lot! The Colour Pop Fetch Please Collection is the only set I purchased though so I figured I’d start there! This set includes one matte single eyeshadow, a pressed pigment duo, an eyeshadow duo, & 3 matte lippie stix. Keep reading to see my thoughts, swatches, & an eye look! [Read more…]
I didn’t grow up on Clinique products but they have certainly grown on me over the years. Since finding my absolute favorite moisturizer in their brand I’ve started branching out through their skincare & into makeup. Slowly but surely I knew I would make my way to the cult favorite shade Black Honey in some form…& today I’m sharing with you quite a few! After reading a bit about the history of the specific shade I thought a linkup with other beauty lovers would be amazing- different looks & different ages all showing how we wear Clinique’s Black Honey. Since this shade is supposed to be flattering on everyone I thought we would put it to the test!
For a bit of background, Clinique’s Black Honey is their best selling shade of their Almost Lipstick line ever. In fact, Clinique ships one tube of this lipstick every 2 minutes. EVERY 2 minutes. There is a lot of history behind this shade but also a good bit of logical science. Black Honey has remained a best-selling shade for the past decade but was actually released first in 1971. The shade was added to the Clinique Almost Lipstick range in 1989 (the year I was born, were we meant to be or what?) & has spanned generations of women. The color itself is comprised of red, blue, yellow, & orange pigments that mix in a sheer base despite the deep shade you see in the tube. Each woman should have her very own custom color straight from the tube- for every age & ethnicity. With well over 1,000 reviews on Makeup Alley I just had to see why this shade has endured.

Have you ever picked up a palette & immediately thought of a certain season? The Smashbox Cherry Smoke Photo Op Eyeshadow Palette is limited edition for Fall 2014 which is just so fitting- this palette is so stunningly autumn. I wish I had reviewed it earlier since it is sold out at a lot of retailers- but I will list some it is still available at below. This palette is everything & I included my favorite eyeshadow look along with it! Keep reading to see swatches, my thoughts, & a truly easy fall look. [Read more…]
