My Honest Thoughts On Morphe And On The Morphe & Jaclyn Hill Palette

IMG_3513Hmm, where to start? Let’s first start with Morphe before I move onto reviewing their newest palette with Jaclyn Hill. Morphe is a brand, I’m sure, you’ve heard about if you’ve been following anything beauty or makeup related. They’re literally saturated all over Instagram & Youtube. Well known influencers are constantly telling us to “use their code to save some money” on the products. If you follow the makeup community, there’s no escaping the name, Morphe. We’ve all heard about this company. We either love Morphe. Or we don’t.

Less than a year ago, I was pretty adamant on the fact that I didn’t want to even try anything Morphe related. I had no desire to spend my money on “cheap” makeup. If you’ve been following my blog for a little while, you’ll know I don’t really buy drugstore products very often. I just find the quality is not there. I prefer high end makeup and brands. That’s just my opinion and my preference. (More recently, I’ve discovered and come to love a few drugstore brands that really deliver with the quality of their products.) Slowly my opinion is changing on some of these brands, as I find they’re starting to deliver in the quality department. Continue reading

Best Candle Of The Summer? Bath & Body Works Berry Waffle Cone

IMG_3452I’m always enthusiastic when I hear Bath & Body Works (Or Yankee Candle) has released a new bakery/ sweet/ foodie type of scented candle. After all, those are my kind of candles. Pretty much the only type of scents I tend to buy, with a few exceptions every now and then.

I’ll be honest, I’m pretty much out of the loop when it comes to B&BW or candles in general right now. I typically buy fall and winter candles. I’m not into spring, floral, heavy perfume scents, so I usually stay away.

I heard about this candle, you guessed it… on Instagram. It was floating around and many people were declaring this candle, “The best candle of the summer.” It is a bakery based candle and you know that caught my attention right away. Continue reading

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Palette & Blush Palette Queen

IMG_2726I’ve had both of these palette’s for a little while now & have been meaning to let you guys know what my thoughts are on them. *insert face palm emoji here* Better late than never, right?

I’m not one to purchase a lot of drugstore makeup. It’s just a personal preference and I don’t find many brands that I like, or blow me away as I do with high end products. However, I do have a couple of   brands I really do enjoy and buy products from: Milani, NYX, and more recently, Makeup Revolution.

Makeup Revolution is still pretty new to me. I think I “discovered” them a couple of months ago when I saw someone tag them in these gorgeous highlighters (Skin Kiss ones) on Instagram. I remember thinking the highlighters looked so good, the swatches I saw were so pigmented, so perfect. I ended up buying them… although, in the back of my mind I kept thinking, “How good could these really be?” I didn’t have high hopes.

Nails Of The Month For June

IMG_2812I am really slacking because I realized I never posted my nails from this month. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen them. If you read my last post, you got a sneak peak (ish) of them as a little bit of the design was shown while holding one of the products for that post.

Let me just say that the design I went with this month, was one I found from a nail tech on Instagram. He does amazing designs! Amy, (my nail tech) recreated the look perfectly. I am obsessed! Really, though, when am I not? 🙂 Continue reading

Let’s Talk Scents : (FragranceNet.com)

IMG_2868I am obsessed with scents. I love things that smell great, candles, fragrances, you name it. I don’t know about you, but whenever I go into a Sephora, or Ulta, or any kind of store that sells perfume or fragrances… I always end up leaving smelling like a million different scents because I just can’t help myself and need to sample EVERYTHING.

I’m always looking for new fragrances that I’ll love. (Lots of times I find them just by getting those sample cards that come inside magazines) Sometimes I end up finding a scent just because I like the look of the bottle or the packaging looks nice. (I know, crazy… luckily I haven’t bought one yet that was a complete fail)

Jouer Skinny Dip Lip Topper & Highlighters

IMG_2574I was really excited to try Jouer Cosmetics highlighters. As you know, highlighters (lipstick & blush) are my obsession at the moment. Before I placed my order, I originally just had my eye on the new ‘Skinny Dip’ lip topper.

The pictures of that lip topper looked stunning! I own two other lip toppers from them and wanted to get Skinny Dip to add to my collection.

I think because I wanted the lip topper, I wanted to add the highlighter as well. I decided to go with an additional highlighter… well, because it was hard not to pick more than just one. 🙂

Pixi Beauty Peel & Polish Review

IMG_2500I was pleasantly surprised when I received this package from Pixi Beauty, who very kindly sent this out for me to try.

Pixi is a new brand for me. I’ve noticed this brand maybe, two months ago? I was in Target and had my eye on their Hydrating Milky Mist and Glow Mist. I was hearing wonderful reviews on them and kept debating if I should pick them up to give them a try.

I ended up not getting them… but I’m heading to Target this week and I do have them on my list. With that said, after trying this product, I am now very eager and excited to try other products from this company. (Which is why I will be heading to Target to pick up those mists. ) Continue reading
