On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Becca Afterglow Palette

Oh, Becca. You sure know how to make a girl glow! There were a lot of holiday collections that caught my eye last year but Becca took the gold. Hands down. I ended up with pretty much her entire holiday collection because it was oh so beautiful and I’m a complete highlight freak. That’s why I ended up grabbing the Afterglow Palette before it disappeared from my local Ulta. It’s a lovely cheek palette that features 3 Shimmering Skin Perfectors and 2 Mineral Blushes all wrapped in pretty pink metallic packaging. Perfect for Pink Wednesday!

Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate Review

Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate

Before turning 25, my skincare routine was super simple. Just cleanser and moisturizer. Now I use everything under the kitchen sink because my skin doesn’t bounce back as easily as it used to. I could repeatedly fall asleep in my makeup without my face falling off the next day. Or spend days chilling in the sun without sunscreen (the horror!) or a care in the world about dark spots, fine lines or wrinkles. Long gone are those days. Sigh.

Now, I have a complex skincare routine that includes everything from masks to eye cream and even serum. Yes serum. Although I still look like a baby my dry skin is already starting to show some slight (yet majorly annoying) signs of aging like increased dryness and fine lines.

New Prestige Releases at Ulta

There’s tons of things to love about working in the world of beauty but one of the best perks is all of the free goodies to play with. Hands down! Being a Prestige Manager at Ulta is a lot of hard work but receiving gratis goodie bags always makes it worth it. Especially when I get to try some of the hottest new products on the block!

January was all about glowing skin so I got to try a ton of new skincare goodies but this month is back to the makeup with tons of new releases for spring. There’s a new collection or product (or two or three) popping up every week this month so there’s lots of fun to be had in the Prestige department and you certainly don’t want to miss out!

Estee Lauder 410 Shameless Violet Pure Color Envy Matte Lipstick Review

Estee Lauder 410 Shameless Violet Pure Color Envy Matte Lipstick

It can be easy to write off a line thanks to one bad apple but sometimes it’s important not to judge so quickly. Last fall, I picked up 2 of the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Lipsticks and one of them, Extrovert, turned out to be a little rough. While I loved the color, the formula took a little bit of work to look its best. Which isn’t out of the norm for most vampy mattes but it was a little more than I bargained for at a $30 price tag.

Maybelline Spring 2016 at Ulta

It’s raining new products at Ulta and I’m going broke because of it! LOL I’m kidding. But I’ve definitely been hauling my butt off lately. Between all the new drugstore and prestige releases that have been coming back to back I’ve been losing my mind. It’s like I can’t catch up! The latest spring collection to catch my attention comes from Maybelline. Like NYX, Maybelline has whipped up a lot of new products. And they’re looking mighty nice!

NYX Cinnamon Roll Intense Butter Gloss Review

The creators of NYX have been working overdrive this spring with all these new releases and I just can’t get enough of it! From lippies to foundation to blush, NYX has been changing the game going from your everyday drugstore brand to professional makeup artistry overnight. I was quite impressed with their new contouring products and now I’m falling in love with their new lippies. Especially the new shades of Intense Butter Glosses. OMG I want them all!

Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots Review

Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots

Sundays are all about skincare and Peter Thomas Roth is giving me the skin fix of a lifetime. After a fun weekend in LA, my skin was beginning to suffer a bit. Nothing too major. Just the annoying rash of tiny bumps all over–like an allergic reaction or something. I haven’t been using anything new lately but I drank a lot more alcohol and indulged in a ton of greasy food and loads of carbs everyday while on vacation and I think my skin is starting to feel the effects of it. Don’t you hate that?

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette

Who loves chocolate? Fancie loves chocolate! I do, I do, I dooooo! After last year’s holiday season, the last thing I needed was more eyeshadow but Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar Collection is so delectably delicious that there was no way I could deny the new Chocolate Bon Bons Palette for spring. Not only does it smell like chocolate but it’s also covered in pink and features cute heart shaped pans. Could you imagine me not buying it? Nah.
