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…]
Is it just me or are contouring/highlighting palettes the “in” thing right now? Or maybe it is palettes in general? I’ve seen a ton of brands coming out with more & more palettes…which I’m definitely not complaining about. I am a palette girl at heart- give me everything from blush to eyeshadow to concealer & stick them in a palette! The only thing I haven’t fallen in love with is lip palettes…but there’s still time for that! Today I’m talking about the first contouring palette I really saw hit my radar many years ago- the It Cosmetics My Sculpted Face Palette! Check out all the details below!
We need to have a talk about lipliner. I feel like this can be a polarizing topic in the beauty world- either you swear by it or you totally don’t get or want it. I go through phases with lip liners but that’s because I’m picky. I admit it- no shame here. For me to say that for a year I’ve had the same favorite line for the formula, color, & longevity is a huge deal for someone finicky like me. You’ve got to keep reading to see swatches & review of the must-have It Cosmetics Your Lips But Better Waterproof Lip Liner Stains! [Read more…]

Nothing hurts worse then throwing away money on something you just couldn’t get to be a favorite.Now you won’t have to! Keep reading to see my top picks! [Read more…]

March is basically over? Apparently? I’m not exactly sure how that happened since these 31-day months usually feel like they take forever! Either way, I’m happy about it! April is my month since it is my birthday, my mom’s birthday, & when I tend to put away the heavy snow gear. Because this is likely our last winter with legitimate snow since we move back to Las Vegas in a few month. Basically we’re jumping for joy- not snow people we quickly learned. So that’s also a favorite!
Whew! Okay back on topic! I skipped last month in my favorites rotation because I honestly didn’t have anything new or that I’d been using enough to count. I’m picky when it comes to favorites! This month I have some older favorites & quite a few new ones! I have all beauty favorites but I’ve been toying with the idea of doing lifestyle favorites on my other blog Home in High Heels…would you guys be interested in that? [Read more…]
It Cosmetics is one of those brands that just gets me. They put amazing ingredients into their products that somehow magically make me feel more confident with what I see in the mirror. & even though I didn’t think they could possibly improve upon their original CC+ cream which I link to below- they came out with a new Illumination version that is seriously rocking my world! Check out my thoughts on the entire kit including the It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical SPF 50 CC+ Cream Illumination, Anti-Aging Vitality Face Disc, Luxe High-Performance Anti-Aging Eye Shadow Trio in Pretty In Spring, & new brushes!

In case you’re completely new around here…I’m pretty obsessed with It Cosmetics. Somewhat recently It Cosmetics came out with over 60 brushes & they’re currently being sold in ULTA stores & on the website. That’s a ton of brushes!

Today I’m going to show you some of my absolute favorites from all three! Check them out in-detail below! [Read more…]
Each year when I pull together my January Beauty Favorites they are mainly about ease of use. Because IMATS LA has been in January the past few years most of my products are geared towards travel! This year, however, I spent half my month there & nearly half my January back here at home. Sick as a dog. Like so sick. It was awful. So prepare yourself for a mix of travel-friendly items & I’m-so-sick-why-is-this-happening products as well! [Read more…]
Have brow problems? Me too. It is a sad fact but I try to be as upfront about it as I can on the blog especially. Because you guys understand me. I’ve tried & reviewed so many brow products recently (check out a bunch here) but I seem to be always on the lookout for the very best. & when it comes it beauty I always recommend It Cosmetics. As a brand It Cosmetics is a league of beautifying scientific geniuses so when I had the opportunity to check out the new-ish It Cosmetics Build-A-Brow Waterproof 5-in-1 Micro-Fiber Creme Gel Stain & It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Build-A-Brow Brush #12 I was all about that eyebrow life.
