• Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette Review

    Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite eye shadow palettes, the Too Faced Chocolate Gold palette. It never really got much hype, even during it’s release. It has some of the best metallic shadows I’ve ever tried! I’m actually quite surprised that it hasn’t gotten much hype. If you couldn’t already tell, I kinda love the palette. So let’s jump into the swatches and how the other shadows preformed. According to the Too Faced website: Take decadence to the next level with a luxurious gold and cocoa powder-infused eye shadow palette that smells as good as it looks. Have a major metallic moment with foiled shadows that…

  • MAC x Patrickstarrr Floral Realness Collection Review

    Hello everyone! Today I’ll be reviewing the Spring MAC Cosmetics x Patrickstarrr Floral Realness Collection! I decided to purchase the Me So Chic kit because I work in a pretty traditional office setting so I like to keep things on the more neutral side. The Me So Chic kit is perfect for adding a pop of color while still having the option to create neutral looks. The kit retails for $49.50 + tax and includes $97 worth of product. On the MAC website, the collection is described as: PATRICKSTARRR is back to make your beauty dreams blossom with his new floral inspired M·A·C full face kits. This collection is all you…

  • Beautylish Lucky Bag 2018

    Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing what I got in the Beautylish Lucky Bag I was able to get this year! I first heard about this item from Bunny (Grav3yardgirl) when she shared her 2017 Lucky Bag. I was immediately intrigued and knew I had to get one in 2018 if I could. However, I actually ended up forgetting about it and later in the year signed up for the Beautylish email list to track other product launches. Fortunately I did because December came around and I got a few emails about the 2018 Lucky Bag which reminded me of the awesome opportunity! I placed my order on December 26th with the hopes of…

  • IMATS LA 2018 Haul

    Hello everyone! Last weekend I attended IMATS in Pasadena, CA with my sister and best friend. This was my third time attending and it is always so much fun! If you haven’t heard of this convention, IMATS stands for International Makeup Artist Trade Show. For a small ticket fee, you get access to a whole convention center full of discounted makeup, a magical place for any makeup lover! Because I spent my weekend away and wasn’t able to work on a more involved post, this week I’ll be sharing what I purchased while at the convention. Let’s jump in! The first thing everyone who attended got was a free sample size lippie…

  • Maybelline x Gigi Hadid Review

    Hello everyone! Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the new Maybelline x Gigi Hadid collection. Since I was a little late to purchase the collection, not everything was in stock but I was still able to purchase the items I wanted from both the east and west coast collections. On the Maybelline website, this collection is described as follows: From her home base in NYC to her hometown in LA, the design and details of these three Maybelline makeup collections reveal the story of Gigi Hadid’s life as she sees it, one shade name at a time. I tried not to watch or read any reviews of the collection…

  • Colourpop Haul

    Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing the items I picked up during the Colourpop Black Friday/ Cyber Monday sale. Prior to this order, I hadn’t tried anything from Colourpop. I’ve heard so many great things about the brand but I have a hard time convincing myself to blindly buy cosmetics online without seeing the product in person. Even though the brand has amazingly low prices, I decided to purchase one palette on sale in addition to the entire Colourpop x Laura Lee x No Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) collection. I’m a huge animal lover and spent a lot of time in high school volunteering at my local animal shelter so when…

  • 5-Star Products Under $10 at Ulta

    Hello everyone! Today I have an Ulta haul/ first impressions! I challenged myself to find 5 star rated products under $5. This proved more challenging than I thought it would be but I ended up with 4 products under $5 and one product under $10. I couldn’t find a mascara $5 or under with a 5-star rating so that’s why this blog post is titled “5-Star Products Under $10 at Ulta.” 😜 Also, as a reminder, ratings are forever fluctuating. These items were are 5-star products when I purchased them but they could have changed slightly since then. Now let’s jump-in to my haul/ first impressions! The first thing I found…

  • Kylie Cosmetics Purple Palette vs. Wet N Wild Petal Pusher Palette

    Hello everyone! This week I’m comparing the Kylie Cosmetics Kyshadow Purple Palette and the Wet N Wild Petal Pusher Palette. After I ordered my Kyshadow Palette, I was in CVS and saw the Wet N Wild palette. I thought, Omg! Some of those shades look really similar to the Kylie Purple Palette!” To be clear, I’ll only be comparing some of the shade I thought looked similar to test whether or not they are dupes. I can do a full review of these palettes if you are curious, let me know! 😊 The Wet N Wild palette is an all shimmer palette, meaning none of the shades are matte. The Kylie palette, on the…

  • Sephora Haul

    Hello everyone! This week I have a Sephora Haul for you! Please excuse the terrible photo lighting. I didn’t account for the lighting changes that occur just before Daylight Savings Times. Needless to say, I’ll probably need to invest in some good lighting now that I don’t live in Orange County and there are actually seasons where I live. This is going to be a quick haul because the only things I purchased were the two editions of the PLAY! by Sephora The Beauty Remedy boxes. I’ve previously missed all the other luxury PLAY! boxes so when the had a presale for VIB Rouge members, I decided to get both options. Each version of the box came with 6 deluxe samples of luxury skincare and makeup products. Even…

  • Kylie Cosmetics 2017 Birthday Collection Haul

    Hello everyone! This week I’m sharing what I purchased from this years’ Kylie Cosmetics Birthday collection. I had planned to post this last week but I placed two separate orders and one of the orders didn’t come in time. So I pushed it to this week! 😜 This years’ collection didn’t wow me like last years’ did. It reminded me a lot of the Valentines Day collection from earlier this year so I wasn’t really drawn to many items. My favorite item from the collection was the bedazzled Candy K matte liquid lipstick but I couldn’t justify spending $60 on a lipstick that didn’t even come with a liner. Here’s what…
