I feel like there are a little over a million neutral eye palettes out there now- but I had to pick this one up. I have a few Kat Von D palettes that I love (planning to review them soon!) because the texture & colors are all so lovely. This palette isn’t like the others, however, because it is both neutral & matte. Think you have enough matte neutrals? Well the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette is unique to my collection which is vast…so I advise you keep reading to see if it would be a good fit for you too! [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…]
Last week was definitely a struggle- just one of those weeks where nothing seemed to go right. I was still swollen from dental surgery, tired, & just generally blah. That’s when you need an effortless palette like the Tarte Poppy Picnic Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette to do all the heavy lifting. No muss or fuss & you’re left with an uncomplicated eyeshadow look? Sign me up! I’ve also been trying out the Tarte Precision Longwear Eyeliner in Brown which fits in perfectly- check out my thoughts, swatches, & finished look below! [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…]
Spring is the time of year when I actually go outside. This might sound strange to you but I’m actually being serious. Winter is cold. Summer is hot. Spring is that sweet season in between where I actually like to go out & enjoy the sunshine. During spring I really like to reach for products that look naturally beautiful but also some multi-tasking. Check out my look & ideas using Glo Minerals here!
Maybelline has long been a go-to brand for me when seeking out drugstore lipsticks. I have 7 of the 10 shades to share with you today & I’ve been wearing them for months. When they first came out there was an intense craze (myself included) & I picked up the shades I thought were either most original or that I figured I’d wear the most. Craving Coral, Ravishing Rose, & Nude Embrace were the shades that didn’t make the cut. Without further interruption I give you my thoughts & swatches of the Maybelline Creamy Matte Sensational Lip Colors in Daringly Nude, Touch of Spice, Lust for Blush, Faint for Fuchsia, Mesmerizing Magenta, Siren in Scarlet, & Divine Wine.

I am still incredibly in love with my Lorac Pro Palette (full review here!). It made my yearly favorites (check them out here!) but it is so much more than that. Many of my go-to shades are in this palette & they really work for me. When the 2nd palette came out I was also immensely excited. Like more than a normal person should be about a palette? I picked this up quite awhile ago but I really wanted to use the heck out of it before reviewing…& now I have! Get ready because my Lorac Pro 2 Eyeshadow Palette review is right here right now!

This is a post that has been quite anticipated! Sleek came on my radar quite awhile ago- long before their shipping became more affordable & before they jumped on Amazon. While I initially was drawn to the eyeshadow palettes which I’ll be reviewing later on…these blush trios are heavy hitters. You may have caught my review of the Sleek Face Form Countouring Trio then you already know I like the formula of the face products. What you didn’t get to see was how absolutely STUNNING some of my favorite Sleek blush shades are…so I’m thrilled to show them to you today! [Read more…]
I am a self-proclaimed blush addict…& will never ever stop sharing my favorites! I feel deep in love with an Eddie Funkhouser blush (review here) & now I own all 4…which are basically perfect in every way. Jealous? Well pump those brakes because Eddie Funkhouser himself has graciously gave me the go-ahead to give away the same set including his new Pro Blush Brush which is truly a dream. Excited? Me too!

Today I wanted to take a break from holiday posts just for a moment to bring in a post I’ve had waiting in the wings since before I even cut my hair. I took these photos when I realized I was using some of my favorite products in my collection & realized this would probably be helpful to share. My collection is pretty vast so the go-to items are really important to me. & some have been around for ages. I just love favorites don’t you?
Have you ever picked up a lipstick & thought “I could wear this with everything…”? It is rare for me. I really do switch out lip colors seasonally & quite often so it is a pretty big deal. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile now then you likely know I grew up raiding my mother’s Lancome stash. It was a pretty big deal. Although I know for a fact I’ve been using this lipstick for 5 years at a minimum…it is likely more like 10. I think it was 3-5 years ago that my mom & I randomly started a conversation talking about our favorite purse lipstick…& it was the same one. The one I’m wearing above is Lancome Color Design Lipstick in Love It! which is probably the best thing ever. I mean- that name? Was it not meant to be a favorite? This is the perfect, creamy pink & you’ll find it in my purse at all times. [Read more…]
