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.
How excited was I when this arrived the other day?! The Fem Rosa Collection from Colourpop is a collaboration with Karrueche Tran. The collection includes the She eyeshadow palette. The Her palette – A highlighter, blush, bronzer trio. Fem Rosa – two satin finish liquid lipsticks, and one gloss. The entire bundle retails for $40 (and is still currently available on Colourpop’s website.) *Each item can be purchased individually, however, I know the She palette is sold out currently at the moment.*
I don’t know about you… but Colourpop’s Yes, Please! eyeshadow palette screams summer vibes to me! The colors with this palette caught my eye right away. I mostly wanted to get my hands on that stunning red (Spoiled) and yellow (Mischief) color. I mean, the whole palette had some pretty fun colors in it. All the swatches they showed looked insane! I needed it… and I needed the Gimme More highlighter palette. Well, you know I didn’t need more highlighters… but I can’t stop buying them. I’m like a cat, I guess. I see shiny & bright and I lose my mind.
Hmm, 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
I’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
I 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
