    Sephora VIB Holiday Sale Haul

    When Sephora has their VIB Rouge/VIB/Beauty Insider sales I take advantage. Beauty products are so expensive so when I can get them on sale it’s a huge plus. When the Sephora sales roll around I like to restock on some items and sometimes (often) try out some new products too. Since I am in the thick of moving, renovations, furniture buying etc. I kept my haul to 5 items. Sure, I could’ve skipped the sale, but where’s the fun in that? I restocked on Caudalie Grape Water which I aways keep stocked. I bought the smaller size this time around. I also picked up another tube of my all-time favorite mascara, Diorshow…

    Shopping My Beauty Stash

    Holiday beauty items are upon us and I am a big fan of all the cute and beautiful limited edition holiday items. But before we go all crazy with holiday beauty, I thought I’d “shop my stash”. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, it’s when you use items you already own and haven’t used in a while so it’s like you’re shopping your own stash. In the early days of the blog I used to share my makeup basket of the week. If you’ve been following me on here for that long you may remember. I would share at the start of each week (along with an ootd) what items…

    Clinique Even Better Foundation

    Why is it Sunday already? I hate how fast weekends go by! Hopefully your weekend has been good so far and you’re off to a great Sunday as well. My day yesterday was a mix of relaxing and running around getting stuff done/browsing at things for my new place and then meeting up with an old friend to catch up. On to today’s post. I love trying out all different foundations. I’ve worn Clinique foundation before, but this is the first time I’ve tried the Even Better Foundation and like the other ones I’ve tried – I love it! The foundation feels light, but gives really good coverage. I’m wearing…

    Huda Beauty – New Nude Palette

    An update to my post yesterday – my closing on my condo went through! It was very stressful and basically everything that could go wrong along the way, did. But it worked out in the end and now it’s on to getting all the renovations done that I want to get done before I officially move in! Will keep you all posted as things progress and do some home posts. Anyway, years ago I used to be an eye palette addict. Whenever I saw a new palette come out from a popular brand and I liked the colors I would get it – especially those limited edition and holiday ones!…

    No Makeup Bronzer

    I have heard about Perricone MD’s No Makeup Bronzer for years along with the foundation. I picked up both during the Sephora VIB sale but haven’t tried the foundation yet. The bronzer though, I have been using for a few weeks now and I love it! I’m not crazy in to bronzing up my face or contouring – I do it lightly just to add some color to my face. The reason I bought the No Makeup Bronzer is because the foundation I’m currently using is a bit light for me at the moment. When I first heard about this liquid bronzer years ago, the YouTubers I had seen rave about it…

    Sephora VIB Haul

    Did you take advantage of the Sephora sale last week? Sephora only has these big sales, I think, twice a year so it’s a great time to stock up and/or try out some of the pricier items you’ve had your eye on. I’m a VIB level member so I wanted to make good use of my 15% off and get a few things. My haul this time around is pretty small, but I thought I’d share anyway. I stocked up on a few items and a few of the items are new/kind of new to me (I’ll explain what I mean by that a little further on in this post!)…

    The Emily Edit – The Wants Palette

    Have you ever watched Emily Noel’s YouTube channel – Beauty Broadcast? I used to watch her beauty videos all the time, but in the past 1-2 years I haven’t had time to watch YouTube like I used to! So it’s been quite a while since I’ve watched any of her videos, but I do follow her on social media still and she’s still one of my favorite beauty blogger/YouTubers. Well, she used to blog, I don’t know if she still updates that since she is most known for her YouTube channel. But anyway, the point of this post is that I got her eyeshadow palette – The Emily Edit –…

    Kylie Lip Kit – Candy K

    The Kylie Jenner Lip Kits exploded in the beauty world a couple years ago and I remember when they first came out they were constantly out of stock – they were that popular. I was intrigued, but not enough to sign up for restock alerts, stalk the website, or anything like that. In recent years I’ve also grown super tired of all things Kardashian so I wasn’t dying to get my hands on a lip kit. Nonetheless, I wouldn’t turn down a lip kit since people rave about them. So when my friend got me a kit in the shade “Candy K” for Christmas, I was excited to finally try…

    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…
