Every time It Cosmetics launches something new, I immediately scramble to get my hands on it. I’d say as far as brands go- I have the highest success rate with It Cosmetics when trying any products. From skincare to makeup to tools…they just have it down. I recently reviewed all of the new holiday sets coming to ULTA (check out my post here!) but now I’m thrilled to bring you some of the top products now available at Sephora! It Cosmetics has come so far. I began blogging about their products back when they were QVC exclusive– so this was just so exciting for me as both a consumer & a fan! [Read more…]
When a new season comes around the bend, most people change things up. Lip colors for summer? Bright & warm! Fall lip colors? Vampy & sultry! Now I’m not saying you have to go with the crowd because if you feel like rocking a coral blush in the middle of autumn- have at it! What I will say is it isn’t only my color cosmetics I switch out- it is everything! My skincare, hair care, foundations, & concealers all get a new blend as well. For autumn I tend to go for a lighter shade (goodbye self tanner!) & something a bit more comfortable. Keep reading to check out my picks & how I use them! [Read more…]
It seems like every year or so everyone all of a sudden has the same holy grail concealer & I am always on the fence of purchasing. After returning the famous NARS concealer (it was too close to a drugstore option!) last year, I thought it was time to give another high-end concealer a shot. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer immediately caught my eye for two reasons- Urban Decay actually makes shades light enough for my skin & I love a full coverage concealer.

Pixi is one of those brands I recommend to everyone. You can pick it up at Target, it is affordable, & it tends to perform like something you’d buy at a high-end store. From the cute but functional packaging to innovative products most people can afford, Pixi tends to really impress me. Check out some new-to-me products from Pixi including the nail polish shade Gilded Garnet, Correction Concealer in Brightening Peach, & more! [Read more…]
To follow up my prior favorite post…we now come to face products. I really only chose my best of the best- the products I reached for time & time again. I’m currently across the US in California for IMATS LA 2015 & to visit my family- & a solid chunk of these are sitting in my travel bags right now because they’re just above & beyond fantastic! Check out my top picks from 2015 below! [Read more…]
I have been having a semi-public battle with my brows long before blogging. I really fight to find that perfect brow balance…& with my personal eyebrows it tends to be tough. How much plucking is too much? Why are my brows so thin there? Geez- is that really the right color? I’ve been using the Milani Brow Fix Brow Kit in Light for years now- & here are two more products to add to my arsenal. Keep reading to see how these Milani products have helped to shape my difficult brows! [Read more…]
Ever fallen in love with a look so hard that you just repeat it over & over? I have been absolutely obsessed with the look & color combo so don’t be surprised if you see it in upcoming videos & such. With the humidity completely settled in & here to stay I’ve been looking at more comfortable/effortless skin & long wearing, comfortable makeup on the rest of my face. Keep reading to see how Laura Mercier makes this look possible! [Read more…]
