Friday Fave #2


It's time for another Friday Fave post!

I'll be honest, I wasn't at all interested in the essence Sheer & Shine lipsticks when I first saw them: they're everything I normally avoid in a lipstick. But after using them for a little while? I'm definitely in love!

essence Contour Powder Palettes Review & Swatches


*This post contains PR samples.

Happy June! Now that it's really supposed to be summer, why not start the month off with bronzers? I wasn't going to review these releases from essence at all, but I've noticed that I've reached for them a lot over the past month. If that's not a sign I like something, then I don't know what is!

Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer Review


I'm a huge matte lipstick lover, and I tend to wear that finish over nearly everything else. But I've got a huge collection of cream lipsticks that just don't get the love they deserve because I find them too glossy. So recently, Smashbox released a product that's designed to get you twice as much use out of your existing lipstick collection.

Summer Smoochin'


So I'm a sucker for alliteration. Today's post is all about my fave summertime lippies that I'll be pulling out all season long. Chances are I won't be doing a lot of smooching since lipstick makes my boyfriend dodge me like I'm infectuous, but that doesn't stop me from trying!

Summer Mani Go-To's


Sunshine seems to make me want to bust out all my nail polishes and start doing at-home mani-pedis again. I haven't done my nails regularly since September, but the idea of wearing sandals again makes me want to get right back into it! So today I'm sharing my top nail polish picks for this summer. I know I'll be wearing these four over and over again all season!

Empties: Jan–May 2016


I'm not going to pretend it isn't weird that I keep my trash just so I can take pictures of it so I can then talk about it ~on the blog~. But empties posts are like mini reviews, except that mine are long AF because I don't understand how to batch them yet. This time around, I just started collecting stuff at the beginning of the year and waited til the David's Tea bag I was using got waaaay too full and I couldn't fit anything else in.

So let's take a gander at what has (finally) ended up in the trash!

Stila Eyes Are the Window to the Spirit Review & Swatches


In the world of pretty palette packaging, I really think that Stila's Eyes Are the Window palettes are some of the best. The palette comes in four options, and I picked up the Eyes Are the Window to the Spirit palette, which is their warm neutral shade selection.

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Spray&Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray Review


In the pursuit of prolonging my makeup on my makeup-dissolving face, I've been trying out a few different things lately. When L'Oreal released the Infallible Pro-Matte foundation that I'm still totally in love with, they also released the Infallible Pro-Spray&Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray. By god, that's a long name. So since I bought it, I've been using it and testing it out to see if it really works.

Matte Liquid Lipstick Comparisons: Stila vs Kat Von D vs Anastasia



This post is definitely a long time coming! I've been wanting to seriously compare some of the most popular big-name matte liquid lipsticks on the market, and I think it's time.

I'll be comparing the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick, the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick.
