Every time I do one of these posts, I always feel like I’m leaving something out. I most likely am forgetting some things that I’ve been loving. That’s just how it goes with me… Anyway, can’t believe it’s already another new month – and November at that! Hello, holidays that are lurking around the corner. I also can’t believe how long it’s been since I did a monthly favorites post. My bad. Continue reading
I am late to the game when it comes to this palette. If I’m being honest, I was going to pass this palette up when it first came out. I loved the shades in this palette… however, I didn’t think they were my kind of shades. I was unsure if I would get a lot of use out of this palette, so I decided to skip it.
Fast forward to all the drama that started to surround this palette. Yikes! I watched a lot of youtube videos, (mostly negative) reviews… it seemed like no one liked this palette, found it hard to work with, hard to blend, the kick up was insane, fallout was terrible, the shades oxidized, you name it. The way this palette was being talked about, you’d think they were talking about a cheap drugstore brand palette.
The other day, L’oreal sent over a package of some of their products for me to try out. I own a couple of their lipsticks, but other than that I don’t own much. I am very excited to try out these products! I would just like to thank L’oreal so much for the kind gift and opportunity to give these a try. Continue reading
Anastasia Beverly Hills released their matte lipsticks at the end of July, I believe. They’re a smooth, ultra matte finish, with 30 shades to choose from in this collection. They retail for $18 each and can be purchased at Ulta, Sephora, and online at ABH website.
I’ve been eyeing these since they were first released. I’m more into liquid lipstick, but do love a good ole’ regular lipstick every now and then. I’m a lipstick junkie, so really, I love them all! 🙂
I am totally late on the Huda Beauty train. For some time now, I have been eying her products. Finally, finally, I decided to buy this limited edition highlighter palette. I was seeing gorgeous pictures of it everywhere! I wasn’t sure when it was going to be discontinued, so I went to one of my Sephora stores and grabbed it.
You guys! So, I said back in April that I probably wouldn’t be reviewing another Too Faced eyeshadow palette, after that whole experience with the Natural Love palette. I told myself I wasn’t going to purchase anymore Too Faced shadows, as I feel, from my own experience, they just don’t work so well… for me.
Yet, here we are again.
I saw this collection and I just had to have some things from it. One of those things was… the Just Peachy Mattes eyeshadow palette. When I tell you I sat for days, debating, going back and forth over buying this palette, that’s no lie.
When I also tell you I kept my Sephora receipt handy, expecting to return this palette… that’s also no lie.
NYX Cosmetics launched their limited edition Luv Out Loud liquid lipsticks. The collection features six new different shades, each celebrating individuality, beauty, and artistry for all.
Each shade name is a representation of the qualities that make a person beautiful.
Which one are you?
I can honestly say, Pixi Beauty has fast become one of my favorite drugstore brands. With every new product I try, I love more and more. I really feel like the quality of some of these products, are sometimes, almost too good to be drugstore. Do you know what I mean? Maybe that’s just me…
You guys know I’m more of a high end brand kind of gal, however, I do have a select handful of drugstore brands I love and enjoy and Pixi is definitely one of them. When I saw they had this eyeshadow palette, I was more than curious to see how it would perform. If you don’t know, I’m pretty picky when it comes to my shadows. Lip products, blushes, even some foundation, I can let slide and will overlook some of the cons that, maybe, most wouldn’t let slide. When it comes to shadows though… I tend to get a bit picky and know what I like in shadow performance. With that said, it’s what I like and what works for me. It might not be what works for everyone else.
I love makeup. It’s pretty obvious. Since I was in middle school, my favorite makeup products to collect were lipsticks. The same is true to this day. I still love to wear and collect all kinds of lipstick, lipgloss, lip products in general.
My second favorite makeup products to collect are – highlighters. (Throw blush right beside that as well) I love a good blinding highlighter! Is there anything better? A blinding strobe of color illuminating your face, body, or wherever you chose to accentuate?
With so many new products and new releases coming out regularly… it’s almost impossible to keep up and buy it all. I mean, we all want it all.. but unless you have unlimited funds, you’ve sorta gotta pick and choose, decide what you can buy.
I did one of these “Beauty Wishlist” posts around the holidays. It’s just something for me to look at and figure out what I really need… well… really want to buy. Of course I’d love every single new collection, product, you name it. Unfortunately, I’m no Kylie Jenner. My bank account doesn’t allow me to buy everything my heart desires all the time.
