• 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…

  • 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…

  • Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge: Influenster Voxbox

    Hello everyone! Today I’m reviewing the Clé de Peau Radiant Liquid Rouge. I received a full-size tube of this product from Influenster, complimentary for testing. This time, my box didn’t have any extra samples but that’s probably because it includes a full-size item from a luxury brand. This is how it was packaged and sent to me: This lipstick comes in 8 shades and retails for $48 USD. According to the Clé de Peau website, the key benefits of this lipstick are: Unique Tri-laminar technology separates color and shine into three layers for an unparalleled level of color saturation and captivating texture. Brilliant Color Powder creates bright rich color that appears to…

  • Arbonne Holiday Makeup Review

    Hi everyone! Today I’m reviewing two makeup products from the Arbonne 2017 Holiday collection. If you’re new to my blog or haven’t read my older posts, I’m actually an Arbonne Independent Consultant. I was introduced to this amazing company by a sorority sister while job searching after graduation. Arbonne International is a health and wellness company that is all natural, vegan, and follows European guidelines in product production. When I was introduced, I had been doing research on the harmful chemicals in health and wellness products that are sold by well-known companies such as Maybelline, Pantene, and Garnier. Unlike companies in the U.S., Arbonne follows European guidelines, which means that…

  • Covergirl Peacock Flare Mascara Review

    Hello everyone! Happy December! I can’t believe it’s the holiday season already. Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas has begun and the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping continues. Thankfully, I’ve completed all of my holiday shopping and I’m so glad I don’t have to deal with the crowds of shoppers! Today, I’m sharing my thoughts on the new Covergirl Peacock Flare Mascara. In my opinion, the newer Covergirl mascaras haven’t been that impressive. I feel like they keep releasing mascaras with crazy looking applicator wands that make applying mascara more difficult. For instance, the Total Tease Mascara, which I reviewed here, makes sense in theory but when it came time…

  • 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…

  • Fave Fall 2017 Makeup Trends

    Hello everyone! With the fall season in full swing, I wanted to share some of my favorite Fall 2017 Makeup Trends. Most of my research and information comes from this Good Housekeeping article. I found that this article actually lists the trends while other articles only list the looks each designer had on the runway. Without further ado, here’s my top 6 Fall 2017 Makeup Trends. Two Tone Lips: The bottom lip is subtly darker than the top lip. I just love how this looks. A while back, a more extreme version of this went viral but I couldn’t get behind it because it wasn’t practical for everyday life. The subtler…
