Bobbi Brown recently released 14 brand new liquid lipsticks for Spring 2019. I wasn’t interested in picking them up until I came across a whole bunch of great reviews from my favorite YouTubers, beauty bloggers, and friends on Instagram. So, after buying one and using it, I now have 4 in my collection. I am so excited to review them for you! And, I may have just found their drugstore dupe!
This year, I decided to gift myself something for Valentines Day. After all, I deserve it, right?! We all do! I wasn’t sure what it would be until Natasha Denona revealed her new Spring 2019 Bloom Blush & Glow Palette. I watched every Insta Story: from her reveal to her mini tutorials and I knew this would be the gift I would give myself.
As soon as it was available on Sephora’s website, I placed an order for it and its actually been one of the fastest items shipped to me, ever! Since then, I have worn it a total of 4 times and I am ready to give you my thoughts on this palette.
Hello! I was recently contacted by a brand new (to the American market) makeup company called LINA CHOO. They asked if I would be willing to accept their Great Artist Matte Lipstick collection as a gift to which I excitedly agreed. After noticing only very few reviews on Instagram, YouTube, and blogs, I decided that I would review them here, in case you came across the brand and were interested in one of the lipsticks.
As you know, one of my favorite things to do is shop my stash. Seriously! I get so much joy out of picking different things to use each week. During one of my recent rotations I noticed that over the past year there’s been an increase in the amount of drugstore products I’ve been using. In fact, I’m not only rotating between more drugstore products, I am thoroughly enjoying them and find myself choosing them over some of my high end favorites.
Recently, Becca Cosmetics collaborated with Khloe Kardashian and her best friend Malika Haqq to make a collection of face palettes and lipsticks. I had no idea this was a thing until promo pictures were released and circulated the beauty world. After much thought and consideration, I decided to purchase the Made With Love by Malika face palette and nude lipstick in the shade Yours Truly. Eventually, I picked up the other face palette as well, but I will save that for another review.
Did you think I was done? If you read the first part of this series (you can read HERE), you will know that I did a “round-up” of my eyeshadow palette purchases from Sephora during 2018 and provided my thoughts on each palette, let you know how much use I truly got out of each one, which have been decluttered, etc. One day when I unexpectedly had the morning off from work (thanks horrible, cold, rainy weather), I went through all of my Ulta emails and decided I’d do a second part dedicated to my Ulta eyeshadow palette purchases.
I’m so excited to share the products I loved and reached for the month of January! I believe I stated in my Insta Stories that I would be shopping my stash quite differently this year. Last year, I forced myself to rotate things after a week, even if I was thoroughly enjoying them. This year, I decided not to rotate things I was truly enjoying so that I could use them as much as I needed before I swapped them out for something different. Continue reading
One of the things I told myself I would do in 2019 is shop my stash more and take a backseat to palette buying. As you might be able to tell from this blog and my Instagram page, I haven’t been doing that good of a job so far. However, when I saw Melt Cosmetics release the brand new Blueprint Stack, I immediately drooled over it. I knew this was something I really wanted. The swatches, the presentation of it, and the tutorials/looks I’ve seen on it so far have been beautiful. Personally, blue shadows aren’t shades that I reach for often, so I felt that shopping my stash for similar shades would be the better option for myself.
I might be in the minority when I tell you that when I saw the Lime Crime Venus XL II palette on Trendmood’s Instagram, I was immediately intrigued. The green colors, which I rarely reach for, called to me. So, I ordered! I have used this palette a few times and came up with 4 different looks, 2 of which I will show here. After using it for quite some time, I’m ready to give my thoughts on this palette.
I didn’t think I would review the NYX Swear By It palette, but after buying it and talking about it briefly on my Insta Stories , I had several questions on it and began to see it pop up on lots of YouTubers channels! YouTubers Tati and Allie Glines have recently reviewed/used this palette on their YouTube channel as well as a few others. The only person I had seen talk about this palette was Kathleen Lights, but this was back in July of 2018! Her makeup look definitely inspired this purchase. I cant wait to tell you all about it!
