    NARS Cheek Palette

    I have to preface this post by saying that sadly I don’t think this cheek palette is available anymore. I got it during the holidays but didn’t have a chance to share it before now. BUT, all the shades in it are staple NARS shades so you can easily buy them individually or in other cheek palettes in the future I’m sure since they are cult favorites. I mostly got this one just because I didn’t own these cult favorites on their own and the packaging was so cool! So I named this blog post “NARS Cheek Palette” because it’s really called NARS Orgasm Infatuation and I didn’t want that…

    L’Oreal Rouge Signature Matte Colored Ink

    If I had to choose between matte or glossy lip products, I almost always go with glossy. I like the look of gloss on my lips more than matte since most mattes are drying. With that being said, I still do like to try out matte lip products since they always look so good on others. Lucky for me L’Oreal and Influenster sent over some of the Rouge Signature Matte Colored Inks! I was sent 3 shades. From left to right: I Create, I Rule, and I Am Worth It. These lip inks are supposed to deliver a satin feel with the color impact of a liquid lipstick. They claim…

    Sinful Colors – Sinful Nudes Nail Polish

    You may remember back before Halloween Sinful Colors was kind enough to send me a big PR package with some decorative goodies as well as a bunch of polishes from their Conjured Color line. Well they recently sent me polishes from their upcoming line – Sinful Nudes! I was so excited to receive these nail polishes because I had no idea they were sending them to me. It was a pretty exciting surprise to receive! The shades all range from pinky, champagne polishes to dark browns. So far I have tried one of the shades with is a pink toned gold with a shimmery effect. It’s called “Tease”. I think…

    MAC Skinfinish -Snowflushed

    I’m a little late with this post on MAC’s holiday release Skinfinish – Shiny Pretty Things in the shade “Snowflushed”, but it’s on sale right now so maybe I’m actually right on time? I always love checking out the MAC holiday collection because there’s always so much to choose from and the theme and packaging are always so pretty. This year I only picked up one item from the collection and it was this Extra Dimension Skinfinish / Shiny Pretty Things in “Snowflushed”. The mirrored silver compact holds the product inside which is embossed with a bow – so seasonally appropriate. I’m not going to lie, I mostly got this…

    December 2018 Favorites + Looking Back on 2018

    Can you believe it’s the very last day of 2018?! I honestly can’t. This year went by in the blink of an eye and I need time to slow down. I thought about doing a 2018 recap and include some of my favorite posts from the year, but that would be very time consuming to go through the entire year to pick out my top posts. I used to do that but it would just take forever and I always felt like I wasn’t doing my recap justice nor paying proper homage to these favorite posts and moments. So I’ve decided not to do that this year, but I will…

    Kiss – Press On Nails

    It’s been a few years since I’ve had my nails professionally done. It’s a mix of not having time and not wanting to spend the money. So I have been painting my own nails for a while. However, if you’ve been following me for a while then you know my nail art skills have lots of room for improvement. So when I got a box of goodies sent to me from Influenster and Kiss, I was excited to see 2 packs of press-on-nails included. I was never one to get my nails done regularly at the salon but there was a stretch of time when I’d go a few times…

    Stocking Stuffer Ideas

    Who doesn’t love getting gifts in their stocking? Do you check your stocking first or last? I usually go to my stocking after I’ve finished opening up my gifts under the tree. Stocking stuffers are typically smaller gifts that can fit inside a stocking obviously, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are cheaper gifts. It just depends on what you and your family like to do. They can be small gifts that are also low in cost such as socks, or small in size only and be quite expensive like a nice pair of earrings. I don’t often do gift guides because I feel like most other bloggers out there do…

    Sinful Colors – Conjured Color

    If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I typically paint my own nails. It’s not that I don’t like going to the nail salon, but I don’t usually have the time and I’d rather save the money. So unless I’m treating myself to a mani/pedi or have somewhere special to go where I’d like to get my nails professionally done – I’ll do them myself. In fact this past summer when I had a marathon of weddings to go to within 1 month, I just did my own nails each time. Now, even though I do my own nails I am by no means an expert…

    October 2018 Favorites

    Happy Halloween! I can’t believe it’s already Halloween, the end of October, and that the holiday season is officially upon us. It’s crazy how fast this year has gone. Since it’s the end of October I’ve rounded up some things I loved this month as I do every month. First up, is the coffee table book I got – Florists to the Field . It’s so pretty and I love flipping through and looking at the gorgeous photos! The next few favorites are things I’ve been loving to wear/use. My black joggers with white stripes down the side are so soft and comfy! I love them. My favorite shoe this fall has…

    It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

    Quick beauty post for you! I love trying new mascaras and since I don’t wear false lashes I’m always looking for something that will volumize my lashes. Dior Overcurl has been my favorite for a long time, but it’s more expensive than the drugstore mascaras so I don’t buy it all the time. I had heard good things about the It Cosmetics mascara – Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara. It’s only a few dollars less than the Dior one but I wanted to try something new. The verdict? I love it! It’s definitely up there with  Dior Overcurl. Here’s how It Cosmetics describes it: “Imagine lashes so long and full,…
