Luxury lip products aren’t always perfect but I’ve come up with some of my absolute favorites that I think are definitely worth the splurge! As I’ve been going through my stash to move I’ve been coming up on some lippies that I love & others that just weren’t right for me. 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…]
Matte lip products are still having a serious moment. I’ve been promising a big matte lipstick post for some time now but I just wasn’t quite ready yet. & now I am! Basically I wanted this post to be BIG. I’m talking huge. Because I love me some matte lips! My lips tend to be more dry so the list I’ve compiled tends to have really comfortable, creamy, & gorgeous shades that don’t tug the lips. I’ve gathered up my absolute favorite formulas & brands here to share with you- keep reading to check them all out including both lipstick & lip cream options! [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…]
I know you’re probably seeing this a lot- but is it really 2015? I just broke out a crisp new planner & it really hit home! For the past few years, I’ve really enjoyed sharing my yearly favorites in various categories. This year you’ll be seeing quite a few & some will also have video components! To kick it off I had to start with polish- of course! So let’s take a look back at my favorite shades from 2014 by season- & then share yours with me below! [Read more…]
November was a pretty exciting month for me I must admit. We found out we finally get to move onto our next base- & it was one we wanted! I’m prepping to travel to California in January for both IMATS & quality family time. It has been bitterly cold but lacking snow- less work for us! I’ve also come upon some awesome new products, some older favorites, & just lots of beauty finds all around.
I’m a big fan of changing up my look which can be seen all over the blog. I tend to bounce from rainbow eyes to neutral & back again. Everything is pretty so why not give it a shot right? With the recent 20% off beauty sales & such I’ve also picked up some new items. & there are way more I haven’t even shared on the blog yet- so that is something to look forward to! Besides the lip colors, I wouldn’t say these items scream fall which is fine with me. [Read more…]
I’ve been on the hunt for new foundations for some time now. My skin changes pretty drastically season to season & more recently I’ve been dealing with some new issues. & not the fun ones. I’ve been getting awful dry patches, my eczema has been flaring something fierce, & on top of that my pores aren’t looking too hot. Not exactly a dream come true when combined with the whatever the heck it feels like weather going on around here lately either. Then in walks in the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation– & she has rocked my world.
Ever been on a trip & regretted forgetting something? I know I have. Here is a list of some of my favorite beauty items that help me make it more comfortably without a trip- without bringing out my entire stash. Because for some reason people think that’s illogical! This is a special list because it isn’t my basic favorites like certain palettes but usually multi-purpose beauty products I find handy on the go! Plus a look at my favorite new makeup bake from the Hold Me Company! It is pretty incredible! [Read more…]
Orange is the New Black is one of my favorite shows currently…so we quickly flew through the 2nd season. I’ll make sure not to reveal any major spoilers but this season was intense (which was expected) but also full of awesome twists. One of my favorite characters on the series (which is on Netflix for those who haven’t indulged yet!) is Nicky aka Nichols who is just a seriously awesome character. She’s rough one minute & understanding the next but always speaks her mind. In collaboration a few other vloggers & bloggers (linked below!) we sought to cover some of our favorite characters- keep reading to check out my look! [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…]
Laura from My Newest Addiction have been blogging friends a really long time so it only makes sense we decided to do our first video collab together! We wanted to both use the It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette because she is so stunning & versatile. When we came up with the Alter Ego Palette idea we thought it would make a great tag too!
How does it work? Pick one of your favorite palettes & zero in on shades you use the least then create a look!
