    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…

    Rediscovered: bareMinerals California Bronze

    Although we’re now past Labor Day Weekend, which is the unofficial end of summer, I’m sharing a very summery beauty rediscovery. I was going through some of my makeup, because I like to dig through and see what I haven’t been using lately to make use of it and I completely forgot about this bareMinerals bronze and highlight palette, California Bronze, that I used to love. I’ve been using it for the past week and it’s been a nice rediscovery! It comes with a highlight and 2 bronzers which are perfect for either a contour or a nice bronze glow to the face for that summer glow. I used all…

    Lorac Evening Soiree

    I hope you all had a nice weekend and are ready to start off the new week. Today’s post is about the Lorac holiday duo – “Evening Soiree” which is a blush and highlight duo. This particular duo came out exclusively to Kohl’s during the holidays so unfortunately it’s not available any more. I know, I know – why am I sharing it if it’s not available anymore? I’m sharing it because the quality is so good, as I expected since I’ve yet to be disappointed by a Lorac product. Even though this duo isn’t available anymore, Lorac still has a variety of blush and cheek products in their permanent…

    bareMinerals Invisible Light

    I have been using bareMinerals for years and years – a little less these days but it’s still a reliable brand after all these years in my opinion. I started using their powder foundation back when I was in high school. We don’t need to talk about how many years ago that was. My mom had ordered it for me through QVC on an automated delivery schedule so it would get sent to me monthly and that’s basically all I wore in terms of makeup for years. Those were the days when all bareMinerals products were loose mineral powders. Remember back when the only eyeshadows they sold were loose powders? It…

    NYX Highlight & Contour Palette

    Last year saw the craze of highlighting and contouring, which frankly have been around for ages but for some reason people went absolutely crazy for it in 2015. On a day-to-day basis I do some light highlighting and contouring to add some dimension to my face but nothing too glowy or chiseled. Actually, it’s more of a bronzing up than a contouring. There have been loads of highlight and contour palettes that have come out in the past year alone. Seriously, so many to choose from at all different price points! Since I only seriously highlight and contour it up for nights out or special occasions, I decided to go with a middle…

    Winter Glow

    Winter Glow by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring highlight makeup It’s freezing today! So windy and cold and tonight the real feel (factoring in wind chill etc.) is supposed to be -20 degrees fahrenheit! You read that right, negative 20! This cold snap is no joke! It’s supposed to warm up a bit by the weekend, but for now I’m absolutely freezing. Moving on, sometimes when you come in from the cold, your cheeks are rosy and you have this glowing, fresh look to you. Sometimes. Other times you’re shivering and the wind’s been having a field day with your hair and there are times when it’s so cold out that you don’t even know…

    Urban Decay Haul

    There are so many holiday releases that have come out recently and more on the way, however Urban Decay was not on my list of things I just have to have. Of course, that changed. I got the email that they were having their Friends & Family sale, which offers 20% off your order for a limited time. You can’t be offered 20% off and not take it right?! At least, that’s how I justify it to myself. So, I decided to order a few things I’ve had my eye on for a while and have been on my wish list. My wish list is an ongoing and ever-changing list…
