Anastasia Beverly Hills That Glow Glow Kit Review

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in That Glow

Anastasia Beverly Hills isn’t just the queen of brows anymore. She’s slowly but surely becoming the queen of highlighters too. The saga first began with her beautiful line of Illuminators. Now, she’s kicked it up a notch with her iconic Glow Kits which I think every makeup junkie needs to have in her stash. If not both, at least one! I just knew That Glow would be mine until I laid eyes on Gleam and realized how amazing it looks on my brown skin. I ended up adding Gleam to my collection first in hopes of skipping That Glow since I have so many gold highlighters. But there was no way I could resist That Glow for long. It’s too superb!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits for Fall 2016

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits for Fall 2016

Glowing skin isn’t just for summer! Anastasia Beverly Hills is bringing the glow all year round by adding 2 new additions to the Glow Kit collection. Moonchild and Sweets will be lighting up cheeks this fall in unique shades of pinks and blues as an exclusive ABH release. I’m a little disappointed that we can only snag the new Glow Kits online but I have my fingers crossed that Anastasia will spread the love and eventually let these beauties run free at Macy’s, Ulta and Sephora too. A girl can dream, right?

More Becca x Jaclyn Goodies on the Way!

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Collection for Summer 2016

Just when you thought the Becca x Jaclyn Hill saga was over Becca pulls more tricks out of their bag. And I’m loving it! Because a girl can never have too many highlighters (or blush), Becca decided to follow up the insanely popular Champagne Collection Face Palette with a new lineup of Champagne Splits–a highlight and blush duo compact. As if that wasn’t mind blowing enough, Becca is also taking a new spin on their iconic Shimmering Skin Perfectors by making them into travel-friendly cream pencils that can be used on the face, eyes and lips for a summer ready an all over glow. I’m not going to lie. I’m beyond overloaded on highlighter and blush for the next 2 lifetimes but these glow goodies look absolutely gorgeous!

CoverGirl Queen Collection Ebony Bronze Natural Hue Bronzer Review

CoverGirl Queen Collection Ebony Bronze Natural Hue Bronzer

There’s always that one beauty product that tons of people rave about all over but is incredibly hard to find. The CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer is definitely one of them! If you do a quick Google search, you’ll find tons of good reviews on it and even a few places to order it online. But finding it in stores? Needle in a haystack. The CoverGirl Queen Collection isn’t available in all stores so I really had to dig to find it. After lots of searching, I lucked up and came across it at my local Target. It took a lot of effort to get my hands on the CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer but I don’t regret it at all. It’s such a wonderful bronzer!

3 Bronzers for Brown Skin

3 Bronzers for Brown Skin

When you already have a rich, deep skin tone finding a bronzer is tough work. Most bronzers are a pale golden tan or barely there bronze that only work for light to medium complexions. It’s not too often that you see an actual bronzer (not a highlighter) designed to add warmth and subtle definition to brown skin. Which is a bummer because even us dark skin divas like to look warmed up and kissed by the sun too. Thankfully, a handful of makeup brands realized brown skin could use a little bronzer too and created bronzers deep enough for us gals on the darker side of the spectrum to use. Finding the perfect bronzer for brown skin can still be a bit tricky because everyone hasn’t hopped on board yet so I’ve decided to share my top 3 bronzer choices that work like a charm for my deep brown skin.

MAC Otherearthly Mineralize Skinfinish Review

MAC Otherearthly Mineralize Skinfinish

There was once a time when limited edition MAC products would fly off the shelves in the blink of an eye. Literally the second a limited edition collection went live half of it was out of stock before MAC could even send out an email or text message. Now a days, it seems that MAC has learned their lesson and upped their limited edition inventory. Or people just got tired of the rat race. Either way, it’s a great thing that limited edition MAC products remain in stock a lot longer now because everyone can get a chance to enjoy them. A few months ago, MAC whipped up the Future MAC Collection which featured funky shades and futuristic designs to help you channel your inner time warrior. The star of the show was the Otherearthly Mineralize Skinfinish with its out of this world orb-like design that houses 3 sparkling highlighters all in one sleek black compact.

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette Swatches

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette

When Becca and Jaclyn Hill announced that they were releasing an entire collection based around her famous limited edition Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector they practically broke the internet. Everyone went nuts! I’m not gonna lie. I got a little excited myself because Champagne Glow is beautiful and Becca really knows how to whip up a perfect cheek palette. However, I kept telling myself that I didn’t need it because I’ve been buying a ton of highlighters lately and I already own the Champagne Glow Palette and Afterglow Palette from Becca’s holiday collection. But you know me. The more pictures and swatches I seen of the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette pushed me to want it more and more. It’s just looked so beautiful!

Well, Hello Smashbox!

Well, Hello Smashbox!

Don’t you just love trying out new brands? I do too! There are certain brands that’ll always be my go to for certain products like Too Faced for eyeshadow, Anastasia (or Becca) for highlighters and ColourPop for lipsticks. Every now and then, I like to branch out and see what other fish are in the sea. Just for a little more variety, you know? After months of playing and swatching Smashbox products here and there I finally got a chance to get my hands on a few products and I’m pretty happy that I gave them a chance.

Happy hump day! I hope you guys have been enjoying your week so far. If not, I’ve got the perfect pink pick me up to help you get through the rest of it.
