Urban Decay x Game of Thrones Collection: Swatches and First Impressions

I was so excited to see that one of my long-time favorite brands – Urban Decay – was collaborating with one of the best tv shows ever – Game of Thrones – and they were coming out with a full collection of makeup! I was even more excited when a big box arrived at my door step and it was the entire collection gifted to me by Urban Decay. I did an immediate unboxing but decided to do a blog post dedicated to swatches and pictures of the products, plus a look I did.

March 2019 Anti Haul

I feel like it was time my blog had a brand spankin’ new anti haul post. Lately, brands seem to be pushing things out left and right. And while that can be exciting, it is equally as overwhelming. Aside from not having all the money in the world, I just literally cannot keep up. So, I thought I would share with you all the makeup/beauty purchases I know I won’t be buying.

Review: NARS Exposed Cheek Palette & Comparison to Hot Tryst

If there’s one thing that makes me weak at the knees, its a new NARS cheek palette. Seriously! No matter how much I resist, I cannot get away from them. Thus was the case with the new NARS Exposed cheek palette. I thought I could resist it since so many people said it was similar to the holiday Hot Tryst, but after seeing reviews and looks on it, I just could not pass it up.

Review: Natasha Denona Gold Palette

Today I’m here to provide you an extremely late review on the Natasha Denona Gold palette. Yes, I am very late to the party. This palette was released on October 2, 2018 (I went back to check), and I finally purchased this in January 2019. The reason it took me so long to buy it was that I decided to wait for reviews on it and wanted to get all of my holiday shopping / new house buying things out of the way first. I was also secretly hoping to receive gift cards for Christmas so that the price wouldn’t hurt my wallet as much. My family came through and I was finally able to buy it!

Review: Natasha Denona Bloom Blush & Glow Palette.

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.

Drugstore Products That Rival High End

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.
