Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all have had great week.  I am linking up with Amanda today and sharing my latest favorites.

  1. This cozy turtleneck sweater would be perfect to wear with leggings or jeans. That color also goes with anything which is great.
  2. This ruffle top is pretty and perfect for either day or night.
  3. These sneakers are  SO cute and perfect for the holiday season.
  4. My mom gave me two Chanel eyeshadow palettes that I have been using almost every day.  Thanks Mom! 🙂 Unfortunately I can’t find the exact ones that she gave me online.  They are available in a lot of pretty color combos though and this one is my favorite.
  5.  These leggings. They are officially my favorite leggings ever. They are thicker, have a higher rise, and they are soft. The price is also great.

Makeup Review

Hello and Happy Wednesday!!

Last week when I went to Sephora to pick up a few things, I only ended up walking out with two full-sized items and a ton of samples. Today I wanted to share a review on the samples that I did try as well as the two new items that I bought.


Tarte Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit  

I am not really a lip gloss person because I don’t like how lip gloss can be sticky. This has a matte formula though and feels more like a lipstick to me. The color is a neutral/nude color and a good one to wear year-round.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paarty 

I have heard a lot of bloggers talk about this blush so I was excited to try it. The color is pretty and it really does stay on for 12 hours which is great.

Makeup Forever Aqua XL Color Paint Eye Shadow in Iridescent Warm Beige 

LOVE this stuff!!! The color is a pretty shimmer-y gold and it worked really well with my eyeshadow primer. I felt like it stayed perfect all day and all night. I am definitely buying this again.

Makeup Forever Matte Finish Primer 

This primer felt great going on and it worked with my foundation. I did feel like my makeup looked perfect all day and all night too. The only thing that I don’t like about it is that it has a fragrance. After a while I felt like it was giving me a headache so unfortunately I will not be buying this.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel 

I bought this because I was tired of my brows not staying in place all day. This stuff is amazing and I will keep using this.

Hourglass GIRL Lip Stylo in Achiever 

I mentioned this lipstick last week and how much I love it. The formula is great, it stays on for hours, and they have a lot of great colors. Definitely going to keep using this.

Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Bare 

After trying this lipstick and loving it, I wanted to try this one. I think that this one has much better staying power.  It also comes in a ton of beautiful colors and I will definitely be purchasing this again.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a great day! 🙂

 

Makeup Review

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. Today I wanted to share a review of some makeup that I have recently tried.

  1. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer    

I have used a few of her other primers except for this one. I think that this one works the best.  My makeup stays put and it actually feels nice when you apply it.

2. Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation in 1 2 Vanille 

I wanted to try a long-wear foundation and decided to try this one. It lasts for 16 hours and it is great. It works well with the primer and I love it. It does not feel heavy at all. Definitely going to keep using this!

 

3. Diorshow Mascara in Pro Black  

This mascara has been on my list for years. I decided to finally give it a try. I love it. It is pricey, but it does make my lashes look amazing.

4. YSL Tint in Balm in Flirt Me Coral 

I bought this because I wanted a subtle lipstick/lip balm for the summer. It is more on the sheer side but it does provide just the right amount of color. It is also really hydrating. I will probably get another one for fall or winter.

5. Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer 

I bought this after reading some reviews.This is a great long-wear primer. My makeup stays close to perfect for hours whenever I use this primer.  If you have dry skin though I would not recommend this primer. It works well though if you have combination or oily skin.

6. Hourglass GIRL Lipstick in Peacemaker

I got this as a sample from Sephora. It is a perfect natural nude color that you could wear year round. I also think that it has pretty good staying power and it did not dry out my lips, I would definitely purchase one.

 

Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a fabulous day! ❤

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all had a great week. I’m linking up with Amanda today to share some my latest favorites. 🙂

  1. This top.  I love the print. It also comes in other pretty colors.  If it goes on sale next week during the Anniversary sale, I may scoop it up.
  2. Peep Toe Booties. These are currently on sale and in my shopping cart. I have wanted peep toe booties forever too. I love the color and these would be great to wear during the summer, early fall, and spring.
  3. Bag. LOVE. I love the color and the chain. This would be a fun evening bag. I bought this tote in March for work and absolutely love it. The quality is wonderful and I can fit everything that I need into it. I also have some of their clothes on my wish list too. 🙂
  4. Necklace. This is the perfect summer statement necklace.
  5.  Lipstick I wanted a sheer lipstick/lip balm and decided to try it. I love it. I wear it every day and I love the coral color for summer. It is also very hydrating. I am definitely buying another shade for fall and winter.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend! ❤

Latest Beauty Favorites

Hi Everyone!

I know that it has been a long time since I’ve posted. I decided to take a little break from blogging. I hope to be back to regular posting schedule soon though! Anyway, today I thought that I’d tell you about some beauty products that I’ve tried recently.

  1. Batiste Original Clean Dry Shampoo –         wanted to give this a try in between hair washes and I like it a lot. It gives my hair some volume and it smells nice.
  2. MAC Cremesheen Lipgloss in Deelight  – I won this as a prize at work. It is the perfect neutral color. I have been using it every day. 🙂
  3.  NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Sugarland  –        The colors are so pretty and the staying power is great.
  4.  L’Oreal Voluminous Primer    I have Biana to thank for this one. After she shared how much she liked this product I decided to give it a try. It is amazing!! My mascara stays perfect all day and all night. Seriously.
  5.   Essie Polish in E-Nuff Is E-Nuff – I love a good coral nail color during the summer months and this one is my new favorite.
  6. Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream –  Since my original go-to eye cream disappeared and the new version I didn’t like I had to find a new one. I have been using this for a month and I love it. It is the only eye cream that I’ve tried that does not make my eyes itch or burn.

Recent Beauty and Fashion Purchases

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you are all doing well.  Today I wanted to share my reviews on some recent beauty and fashion purchases.

  1. Tory Burch Minnie Ballet Flat in Light Oak – I bought these to replace a pair of ballet flats that I had for a few years and that were literally falling apart. I tried these on while I was visiting the Tory Burch store and ended up buying them. They are SO comfortable and soft.  They are a million times better than the Reva flats. I do a lot of walking in this city and they do not hurt my feet at all. 
  2. Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream –  I wanted to try a new eye cream and decided to give this one a try. I really like it so far and it seems to be working.
  3. Women’s Favorite Cardigan by Merona in Gray – I wanted a new gray cardigan so I bought this at Target. The price was great and it is pretty comfortable. I wear it on the weekends and also to work sometimes.
  4. Chapstick 100% Natural Lip Butter Pink Grapefruit – This might just be the best chapstick that I’ve ever tried. It works well and it smells amazing.
  5. Essie Nail Polish in Skinny Dip –  While I do love bright colors in the spring and summer, I have been loving neutral shades too. It is my new neutral go-to color. 🙂
