Have Beauty, Will Travel.


I'm a product junky.  Between building up my makeup kit, testing out new products for the blog, and just general enthusiasm for beauty, I have a lot of products.  However, when I travel I like to pack light. Or at least my version of light.  To do that, I like to bring lots of multi-taskers with a few indulgence items mixed in.  It is for a vacation, after all.

Younique 3D Fiber Lash System - Yay or Nay?


Beauty forums, Instagram, and Facebook have been lighting up with people talking about Younique.  The main product people are discussing is the Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lash System.  One of their reps was nice enough to send me a sample to review.  I would classify this product as something you are either going to love or hate, but I will try to take an unbiased position for this review.  First, let's talk about how this mascara works.

Tarte Rainforest After Dark


Tarte is one of my favorite brands in the market place right now.  The quality of their products are fantastic, they apply with a gorgeous finish, and blend into the skin with great easy and beauty.  I created my own artist palette of colors I frequently use for bridal clients because of the staying power of the products plus how they photograph, both essentials in bridal makeup.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain


For the past couple of years, Revlon has been stepping up their lip game.  First it was the Lip Butter.  Then the Colorstay Balm Stains.  Now it is the Moisture Stain.  These gloss-like lip products are super hydrating, long lasting, and very pigmented.

Splurge vs Save - DIY Lip Scrub


I am a big believer in exfoliating.  I scrub my face, my body, my feet, and even my scalp.  Nothing makes my skin feel cleaner, smoother, and softer than a good scrub.  None is more true then when I scrub my lips.  Not only do my lips feel softer and smoother after a good lip exfoliation, but I find my lipstick looks much better and even lasts longer because my lips are in such good condition.

June Ipsy Glam Bag - Pretty in Paradise


It's officially summer time, and Ipsy is celebrating with colorful accents, light skin coverage, and soft waves for your hair.  I still get so excited every month when my glam bag arrives, and this month introduced me to a new favorite.  Plus, the official bag by Rebecca Minkoff is a super cute tropical floral print that is the perfect size for travel or your purse.  Let's review each product...

Sephora Color Anthology Eye Shadow Palette


I frequently browse the sale section of the Sephora mobile app (confession of a product junkie).  Most of the time, there are very few things I am interested in but occasionally there is a gem among the items.  This MEGA eye shadow palette for $20.00 definitely gave me pause not only because of the amount and variety of eye shadow colors, but because of the sleek packaging and very affordable price.
