One of the many upsides to being a makeup blogger (and junkie) is that I get to try a lot of different new products quite often. Most times, I purchase them myself which makes my wallet a little sad but my face very happy when I pick products that turn out to be amazing. May was a super long month filled with a lot of sales and great collections that I needed in my life so I ended up hauling lots of new makeup that caught my eye. Was it a little expensive? Yes. Do I regret it? Nope! Most of the new goodies I picked up turned out to be some of the best products I’ve ever tried. In fact, a few of them ended up being in heavy rotation from the moment I picked them up. Score!

Love makeup but hate paying the big bucks for the good stuff? Then you need to check out Makeup Revolution at Ulta because their products are amazing quality at super affordable prices. With blushes and highlighters at just $6 and lipsticks and glosses at $3 it can be hard to believe that it’s all good quality. But trust me. Makeup Revolution is all good! I’ve been wearing my Golden Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter and Nude Matte Blush daily since I picked them up during the BOGO sale at Ulta and I couldn’t be more impressed with the quality of them. In fact, I love them so much that I doubled back and picked up a handful more Makeup Revolution while they were still on sale. There was no way I could resist grabbing more when the quality and the prices are this good. It’s only right!

Still Obsessing Over the MAC Chris Chang Collection

MAC Chris Chang Collection for Summer 2016

Anyone else still drooling over the MAC Chris Chang Collection? I know I’m not alone here! Initially, I purchased a few products from the collection solely because the packaging is beyond gorgeous and I had a $10 off discount code. Once I finally got my hands on my new Chris Chang goodies I developed such a strong love for the collection. Not just because the packaging is amazing but also because the actual products turned out wonderfully too. I don’t have a bright yellow matte shadow in my collection so I jumped at the chance to bring home Royal Woo Eyeshadow which I knew would be a great lid color for spring and summer. Rich Coral Cream Colour Base can easily be duped in my collection but orange blushes are so easy for me to wear so I went ahead and tossed it in my cart too. It’s a bit sheer but I like that I can easily build up Rich Coral for a soft, natural flush of orange that warms up my complexion and gives me a nice luminous glow too.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Bobbi Brown Desert Pink Blush + Sunset Pink Shimmer Brick

Ready for some pink? Of course you are you girly girl you! I don’t know about you but I could wear pink all the time. Pink makeup makes me feel so feminine and flirty. Or bold and fun. Whatever I’m in the mood for. Pink is an incredibly versatile color that anyone can pull off whether it’s on the lips, nails, or cheeks. This week, I decided to celebrate my love for pink with a killer pink cheek combo that’s perfect for spring and summer.

NARS Lovejoy Blush Review

NARS Lovejoy Blush

Most hardcore makeup lovers can’t get enough of blush but it seems that a lot of dark skin divas aren’t convinced that blush is where it’s at. I get it. Finding the perfect blush to compliment brown skin can be tricky. A lot of brands cater to lighter skin tones with pale pinks and corals that look ashy and washed out on brown skin. All hope isn’t lost though! Some brands create blushes with all skin tones in mind. Like NARS. NARS is king when it comes to high end blushes for brown skin because there’s a huge color range with shades that are designed to give us brown skin beauties the perfect flush.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Too Faced Melted Metallic Dream House Lipstick + Something About Berry Sweetheart Blush

What’s better than pink? Glitter! Glitter is one of the few things that I love more than pink so when you combine the two together it’s pure magic for me. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only girly girl that lives for pink and glitter though so I pulled out a matching shimmering pink lip and cheek duo to spread the love for Pink Wednesday. ‘Cause you can’t have a poppin’ shimmering pink lip without a matching blush. In the words of Tamar, “That ain’t hot!”

Happy hump day girlies! Spring is finally here so you know I’m all about adding an extra touch of pink here and there to brighten my face and my days even more. Nothing says spring like a fresh, natural pink lip and cheek combo to add a little flush of color and girly flair. Lately, I’ve been spending almost all my money in the Prestige department at Ulta but I recently came across some of my NYX goodies that were in need of a little love and perfect for a Pink Wednesday highlight.

Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette Swatches

Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette

Did I mention that Tarte has really been catching my eye lately? Every time I turn around, Tarte is coming up with something new to add to my ever expanding list. One of their latest releases is a limited edition blush palette for Summer 2016 featuring 4 blushes in Tarte’s iconic Amazonian Clay formula. The packaging looks a lot like my dear Tartelette in Bloom Palette with vibrant bursts of pink, purple and white which leaves me to believe it’s going to be a fabulous extension to my Tartelette Palettes for a full face look.

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette Swatches

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette

Nothing warms a makeup junkie’s heart more than seeing limited edition palettes go on sale. It’s just magical! Last week, Ulta decided to close out 21 Days of Beauty with a bang by adding the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette as a Hot Buy for half off. For just $22.50, many of us were able to get our hands on Gwen Stefani’s personalized limited edition blush palette online and in stores at Ulta. Of course, it sold like hot cakes so everyone wasn’t able to catch such a great deal before it disappered. However, Sephora has decided to join in on the fun by marking down the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette to just $30. Yay!
