Bobbi Brown Hot Pink Lip Gloss

Don’t feel like you can pull off a bright summer pink lip? No biggie girl. That’s what gloss is for! I know everyone isn’t super comfortable slipping on a poppin’ pink lipstick so this Pink Wednesday’s feature is just for you. Bobbi Brown has a beautifully perky Hot Pink Lip Gloss to help you rock a bright pink lip this summer in a more subtle, laid-back way. Bobbi’s Hot Pink Lip Gloss is a cute strawberry pink that’s mostly sheer so it isn’t overpowering or super vibrant. Instead, Hot Pink gives lips just the right amount of color to show off a little flirty pink flush while still allowing your natural lip color to peek through a bit.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Serum Review

Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Serum

Now that I’m getting older, I like to go the extra mile with my skincare routine to ensure my skin looks clear, radiant and healthy for as long as possible. Instead of just relying on cleanser and moisturizer I like to use more potent products like serum and eye cream to give my skin an extra boost to stay plump and youthful. After finishing my Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Serum, I was hooked on serums and itching to try another good one. I received the Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Serum as gratis a while back and decided to pull it out and see how it compares to my precious Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Serum.

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.

Clinique All About Eyes Review

Clinique All About Eyes

Dry eyes can be a huge pain in the butt. Especially if you wear makeup. Dry eyes can make concealer look cakey, crease and look, well, dry. I’ve struggled with my dry eyes quite a bit but things started to get better as I experimented with eye creams. I’ve only tried a couple of them so far with good results but it seems that I might have just found a new favorite in the Clinique All About Eyes eye cream. I’ve been using the Clinique All About Eyes cream for over a month now and I’m rather impressed with how well it hydrates and refreshes my parched eyes.

It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara Review

It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

Finding a good mascara can be a challenging feat but the new It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara is definitely making life a little easier for makeup junkies. I think we can all agree that long, luscious full lashes are every gal’s dream but that false lash effect isn’t always achievable without actually applying a glamorous pair of falsies. However, It Cosmetics is getting us one step closer to the lashes we dream about with the new Superhero Mascara formulated with Elastic Stretch Technology to boost volume, add length and condition lashes with every coat. Sounds fancy, right?

Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Perfume

Wednesday is all about feeling girly in pink here in Fancieland so this week I’m celebrating with one of my favorite pink perfumes: Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet. If the alluring Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet looks familiar to you it’s probably because I’ve featured it before for Pink Wednesday. I hate to be redundant when there’s so many different ways to rock pink but spritzing on a little Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is one of my favorite ways to celebrate pink during spring. Dior has done such a beautiful job creating Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet that I find myself whipping it out every year when spring rolls around.
