NuAcquaDerm Home Microdermabrasion My Thoughts & Results So Far

IMG_1350I was contacted here on my blog last week to see if I’d be interested in trying out the NuAcquaDerm Microdermabrasion at home kit.

I have never done microdermabrasion before so it wasn’t something I was familiar with. I had heard about it, I knew what it was. I had just never had it done on myself, nor ever used any kind of at home device before.

I was interested and curious to see what this product could do. I don’t have troubled skin, or a lot of acne, or problems. I get the occasional breakout, of course, but I’ve always been pretty fortunate when it comes to my skin. I also try and take good care of it, especially as I get older.

Too Faced Natural Love Palette Review

IMG_1135I wanted to love this palette. I really wanted to love this palette. When I first saw pictures of the palette floating around on my Instagram I instantly had heart eyes. I thought the colors in this palette were gorgeous!! Gorgeous!

I was so excited by this palette I *almost* almost ordered this online before it was released in stores. I held off until it was released and I could see it and swatch it in person.

Honestly I don’t even know what I was thinking. The swatches were meh… but still I had to buy this. Once again, I kept thinking… well, maybe I can make this work. Maybe it won’t be so bad when I get it home. Why am I trying to talk myself into buying a palette just because I think the color scheme is pretty??  Continue reading

Morphe Copper Dreams Brush Set – First Impression & Review

imageHello beauties! Well my Morphe brush set finally arrived sometime early last week. If you weren’t aware, I originally ordered for the first time from Morphe when they released their Copper Spice & Bronzed Mocha palettes. There was some kind of mixup on their part and I received the Copper Spice palette I ordered, however, my Copper Dreams brush set was missing. If you haven’t read about it, you can read it here if you’d like : First Time Ordering From Morphe (My Experience) & Copper Spice & Bronzed Mocha Palette

I was excited for this brush set to arrive. For one, I loved the look of this set. From the beautiful copper colored cylindrical tube it came in, to the white base and copper tipped brushes themselves. The look and packaging is what got me. It looks fancy, yet it’s affordable.

Previously, I’d never owned anything from Morphe. (brushes included) I’ve heard many mixed thoughts on their products as well as their brushes. As always, I like to try something out and form my own opinion. What works for someone else might not work for me and vice versa.  Continue reading

Tarteist Lip Paint & Gloss Review

imageIf you guys checked out my Ulta Black Friday Post, then you saw I picked these two Tarte lippies up. I’ve been wanting to try Tarte’s liquid lipsticks for a while now. I love Tarte! I have a few of their Amazonian Clay blushes, eyeshadow palette, concealer, and one of my favorite foundations- Tarte’s Rainforest Of The Sea. I’m familiar with this brand and it’s one I really like. I don’t know why it took me until now to finally try their lip products. (Blame it on the abundance of lippies I already own and if I stopped buying lipsticks tomorrow, would last me for a couple of years.) I guess you could say I’ve kinda always had my eye on Tarte’s liquid lipsticks. I’ve wanted to try the color Namaste for a while. I’ve noticed the color on a few girls on Instagram, and from the looks of it, it looked to be a color that was definitely for me. You guys know I love a good nude! Can you ever really have too many nude shades? 😉 Continue reading

Current Bath & Body Works Candles I’m Loving!

imageIt’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Bath & Body Works candles. I buy them whenever they’re on sale and burn them year round. I’ve been a fan of their candles for about five years now. Are they the perfect candle? Far from it. Do they have wick issues and the occasional non throw issues? Of course. I can get past it enough to continue buying them. Their fall and winter candles are my favorite! If you’re a Bath & Body Works candle fan (and you pay attention), you’ll often find lots of returning repackaged candles that are renamed something different. The candle still smells exactly the same… it’s just a completely different label and title. In some ways that’s a good thing. Say they’ve “discontinued” a candle you really loved, you might get lucky the following season with it returning- just named and repackaged something completely different. For example one of the candles I love currently, ‘Maple Cinnamon Pancakes’ is my favorite candle from a couple of years ago they discontinued- ‘Pumpkin Caramel Latte’ Completely different names, but exact same scent notes in each of them.

Kylie Cosmetics & KoKo Kollection First Impressions

imageI was finally able to get my hands on this collection during Kylie’s last restock. The first time she launched this, I was on the site at the exact moment it went live, added it to my cart, was placed in the “waiting area” to pay, only to be told it was “sold out” six minutes later. I was so disappointed! Luckily she decided to do one more restock because apparently that same situation I had happen to me… happened to many others. The next time she restocked, I was still a little anxious it would sell out again and what happened the first time to me would happen again. This time around it was a lot smoother and I think it sold out a couple of hours later. I really hate when products that a company knows are in high demand sell out in minutes. It can be really frustrating as a consumer, especially if it’s an item you’ve had your eye on and just want so badly. Continue reading

Current High End & Drugstore Brand Mascara

imageI’m kind of picky, or maybe snobby when it comes to mascara. It’s not necessarily the mascara itself, as it is the brush/ mascara wand.  I have a certain kind of wand I like using. I need it to be sturdy and not flimsy/ I’m going to flop around, break in your hand kind of wand. Plus I really focus on the size of the wand and how big the bristles are. I like a lot of volume and big, long, dramatic lashes. I like any kind of mascara that is going to give you both. My lashes naturally, unfortunately, are neither. Continue reading
