Mermaids. Ocean waves. Sparkle. These are a few of my favorite things! One of my absolute favorites in 2016 from any brand is this palette right here (see my swatches & review here!). I’ve already done one look using it- a pinky/orange warm sparkle (see it here!) but I honestly reach for this green just as much!

It is truly the most wonderful time of year: Favorites from 2014. I break these up into categories so today my post is entirely dedicated to eye products…beautiful, stunning, must-have, necessary, eye products.

Check out my absolute must-haves from the entire year & a video to go with it! [Read more…]
Tis the season to buy gifts! Frankly many of them are for myself but we don’t need to go there, right? Estee Lauder is a brand I tend to play around in when I go to certain stores but like many other similar brands I try to wait for a great deal. When I know a brand will put out an awesome holiday set I try to hold out as long as possible for hope’s sake that something I’ve been eyeing will be included. Without further chatter- here’s what is in this month’s holiday set!
This box is pretty gigantic & so is the case which I don’t mind at all. The packaging looks like a gift- who doesn’t love gifts? I found mine at my local BX but & actually don’t see it listed online anywhere yet…more on that below. [Read more…]
Today I bring you a post I’ve been beyond excited about writing. A tale of dupes…a story of matte…& an eye look I’m in love with. On top of all that I’m talking about a bargain! If you love neutrals & snagging a great deal then you’re in the right spot!

When it comes to neutral palettes Urban Decay is still likely the most well-known popular brand. From their trio of Naked palettes to the ever popular Naked Basics…Urban Decay is pretty much a no-brainer. I stumbled upon a few palettes at Beauty Brands recently on display & immediately saw some serious similarities. I picked up the Beauty Brands Matte Mini Color Collection & the Beauty Brands Neutral Mini Color Collection. There was also two other palettes which I’ll discuss below! [Read more…]
Notice I haven’t shared any Glamour Doll Eyes looks last month? Well- time to get back into it! Because I didn’t have a package last month I will also be sharing eyeshadow posts from wayyy back in June! Keep reading to check it all out!
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…]
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!

Recently I asked on my facebook page what kind of tutorials you guys would most like to see & I got some pretty unexpected answers! Two that really caught my eye were work appropriate & something for those with arthritic hands. You may be thinking those don’t go together but I thought I could make it work! I wanted to come up with something really effortless that wouldn’t require a lot of blending or work in general. The Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colours are perfect for this!

When it comes to limited edition lip products Maybelline Baby Lips are some of the few I really look forward to. This collection is called Pink’ed & contains- you guessed it- pink shades. There are 5 in total but #105 Blush Burst looked either super sheer or completely clear to me so I passed. I should have actually passed on another shade in this collection as well- keep reading to see which one & view my quick video breaking down my thoughts! [Read more…]
