Maybelline Fit Me Concealer Review

I can’t believe I haven’t done a review on this product since I’ve been using it for quite a few months now. For the past few years I have been using the MAC Pro Longwear concealer, but every now and then I’ve tried some cheaper alternatives that didn’t quite compare. I love that the Pro Longwear has such high coverage and even though it’s a bit expensive it really does last for quite a while. One problem that I felt I was having with the Pro Longwear though was that it seemed to make my skin look oily at the end of the day. For that reason I was really considering trying more concealers. I knew I still wanted a high coverage concealer but I also wanted it to feel more lightweight than the Pro Longwear.

Morphe Brushes 350 Eye Shadow Palette Review

For the longest time I have wanted the 350 eye shadow palette from Morphe Brushes and I was finally able to purchase it a few weeks ago. This is probably the most talked about and showcased palette that I have seen around on social media for quite some time. In the past I have purchased quite a few of the single eye shadows from Morphe and fell in love with them. I had heard that the eye shadows in the palettes are even better so I’ve wanted to purchase one for quite some time and figured this palette would be the best. This palette has a wide variety of eye shadows; from light to dark, (mostly) warm to (some) cool tones, and matte to shimmer, while also having a great assortment of colors from a pale white to a vivid orange, a deep burgundy to a dark brown, and everything in between.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Sample Review Part 3

Today is my last post on reviewing some of the new Urban Decay Vice Lipstick colors that I received in a sample box a while ago. I have been trying out the different colors and formulas and I am so in love with these lipsticks. To see Part 1, click HERE, and to see Part 2, click HERE. The colors in today’s post are nudes, browns and pinks. I will definitely be purchasing quite a few of these colors in the future because I have been so impressed with how these feel on my lips and the colors themselves.  If you haven’t tried out these lipsticks yet then I highly recommend you do. Make sure you check out my other two posts to see the beautiful purple, pink, red and orange colors I tried out as well.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Sample Review Part 2

In last week’s post I mentioned about receiving a sample box with 24 colors from Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick range and did a review on the first eight colors in the box (click HERE). Today I’m going to be reviewing the next eight colors which are mostly red tones. I really loved the first colors I tried so I was super excited to try out even more. As I’ve mentioned before, this is my first time trying these lipsticks from Urban Decay and I have been so impressed with the colors as well as the different formulas. Next week I’ll be reviewing the last eight colors which are mostly nude and soft pink colors so make sure you check back for that review as well.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Sample Review Part 1

A few weeks ago I received a sample in the mail that has 24 of the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick colors. I was super excited to try them out because I’ve never tried the Urban Decay Lipsticks before. The sample box has a nice range of colors to try out which is great. There are purples, reds, pinks, oranges, nudes and everything in between. I figured I would try these colors out and do a review on the colors. For today’s post I’m reviewing the first 8 colors that came in the sample box. Next week I’ll do the second 8 and then the following week I’ll review the last 8 colors.

NYX Cosmetics! Part 4

A little while ago I purchased some more NYX products to add to my collection. NYX is a great affordable brand with great quality so I love purchasing products from them as often as I can. I’ve posted reviews on all the products I have so far which you can check out HERE, HERE and HERE if you’re interested. This time I picked up some eye liners, lip liners and their Whipped lip and cheek SoufflĂ©. As with the majority of their products, these did not disappoint.

BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Palette Review

In case you didn’t know, I have been a fan of the beauty Youtuber Shannon Harris, a.k.a. Shaaanxo, for quite a few years now.  I like to support her when I can by either purchasing brushes from her company XOBeauty or products from different brands/companies that she has collaborated with. I have done one review a while ago on the brushes I purchased (click HERE) and another on her lip gloss Candy Kiss (click HERE). When I found out she was creating a palette with BH Cosmetics I was super excited. I’ve purchased other products from BH Cosmetics before which are great quality and reasonably priced. Therefore, I knew I had to get my hands on the Shaaanxo palette as soon as it was released. If you’re curious about this palette or just looking for a great eyeshadow and lipstick palette for a good price then this post is for you!

Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment Review

A while ago I made a purchase on Sephora’s website and decided to redeem some of my reward points. I’ve tried the Josie Maran Argan Oil before and honestly, wasn’t super impressed. It wasn’t necessarily bad but I didn’t think it was as great as all the hype it was getting. Even so, I decided to go ahead and try this product out because I thought that maybe this would be different. This treatment is meant to penetrate “deeply and absorbs quickly to fortify and repair skin for instant, long-lasting hydration that produces a fresh, radiant glow. Purified water plumps and hydrates, while argan oil preserves and nourishes, locking moisture in and preserving skin's youthful cushion.”  To find out if this product really delivers just keep on reading….

Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation First Impression Review

A little while ago I received a sample of this foundation, so I thought it would be fun to do another first impression review. I did one a few weeks ago on the Becca Aqua Luminous foundation (click HERE) which is a pretty similar concept to this foundation. This Laura Mercier foundation is “a sheer-to-medium, buildable coverage foundation that creates a soft, candlelit glow on skin—day or night.” I’ve wanted to try more lightweight foundations recently so, just like with the Becca foundation, I was eager to try this out.

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Review

I’m not sure about you but I can have a real problem with dry lips sometimes. It can be really frustrating, especially since I always try to drink plenty of water, exfoliate and apply lip balm regularly. Sometimes it just seems like it’s never enough and no matter what I do, my lips just don’t look as healthy as I want them too. I’ve used some stuff in the past that has been really nice but I wanted to try something new. I came across this product online and saw that it’s a “soothing, leave-on mask meant to replenish moisture in lips”. This sounded pretty promising and the product had a lot of great reviews so I purchased it and have been using it for the past few months. I usually use the Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Quenched (I love that it has an SPF 20 to protect my lips) or the Nivea Lip Butter in Vanilla and Macadamia Kiss throughout the day. I love both these products because they do in fact help to moisturize my lips but I wanted something a little more heavy duty; a product that would penetrate deep into my skin and nourish my lips from the inside out. I had high hopes that this product would do just that and while it did have some nice qualities, I’m not so sure it’s really worth the hype that I read about.
