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
I 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. 🙂
Milani is a brand I really do enjoy. The first products I ever tried from them were the Amore Matte Metallic Liquid Lipsticks. (which, btw, are amazing!) after that, I was a fan. At least when it came to their liquid lipsticks. Eventually I branched out and tried other products from them.
I adore their baked blushes and Rose Powder Blushes. (how pretty, right?!) I find that they perform quite well and provide a good amount of color, especially for drug store quality.
So I knew, once I saw these blushes had been released… I needed them! They’re so pretty! We know what a sucker I am for packaging! 🙂 They really are pretty though! Continue reading
I’m a little late with my April Favorites, but here they are nonetheless. All my favorites are things that I’ve been loving so much! I mean, of course, monthly favorites are products or items you’re loving for that month… I’m just really excited and loving them more so than maybe past months favorites. LOL.
Ahh! You guys! I hit 1k followers! What?!? I still find that a little crazy to me. When I started my blog back in October of 2016, I didn’t really know what to expect. I didn’t think anyone would read it! Never did I imagine that today, I’d have 1,000 followers!
I’m so grateful to each and everyone of you who has decided to follow me, like my posts, comment, etc. I’ve met some really great people over here and this little blogging community is so kind and wonderful. I’m so happy to have each and everyone of you!
This means so much. I love all my followers on Instagram and Twitter, don’t get me wrong. This little space I have on here is different. I’m not just posting pics or writing (most of the time on Twitter lol) nonsense. You guys are actually reading what I’m writing and getting something out of that. You are listening to what I have to say and deciding to follow me. That’s why with every follower I get on here, it means a lot. (Again, I love every follower I get on all my other social media pages. I just think this one is a little bit more personal.) Hopefully you understand what I’m trying to explain. 🙂
I’ve been tossing around the idea of having some kind of giveaway on here. I wanted to do something when I hit 1k. I’m just not sure how to go about doing it just yet. I’ve never done one and I’m trying to figure out how I’d like to go about doing this. I’ll keep you guys updated on that.
I just want to thank you all once again. Thank you for deciding to follow me (or stick with me if you’ve been here since the beginning) I’m glad you guys enjoy my posts and I love connecting with you all. Every like and comment you give me means so much and makes me so happy.
THANK YOU!!! 🙂
Please feel free to connect with me over on my Instagram or Twitter – ThattgirlJenn just let me know your handle so I can add you back! I also have reviews I do on my Instagram that I don’t always post on here. I’d love to be able to connect over there as well.
Thanks for reading! 🙂
