Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water Review

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

When I actually have enough time to sit in the mirror and lay out a full face of makeup it’s pure bliss! It’s just so much fun whipping up creative eye looks, highlighting and contouring, popping on a little blush and lots of highlight. It really puts me in the zone. Ironically, though, the best part about getting all dolled up is taking it all off at the end of the day and hopping in the sack. Ahhhh, sweet relief!


ColourPop Best O Creme Gel Liner Review

ColourPop Best O Creme Gel Liner

If I had a nickel for every ColourPop product I liked I would be broke. Not because I don’t like any of their products. I actually like them so much that I would collect all those nickels and place another order LOL! If you’re a regular here then you know just how ColourPop crazed I became after placing my first order. When you find good makeup for under 10 bucks that rivals department store quality it’s hard not to place order after order.


Iman Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick Review

Iman Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick

Spring is right around the corner but I’m not letting go of my edgy and vampy lipsticks until I see sunny skies and May flowers. I just can’t get enough of them right now! One of my new favorites is the Iman Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick from her fall Alter Ego Collection. I’ve been addicted to brown lips lately and Rebel is like the perfect 90s brown lip that’s a must have.

Iman Luxury Contour Trio Review

Iman Luxury Contour Trio

When you have dark skin it’s easy to get caught up on the idea that you need to spend the big bucks to find a decent contour. More brands have started hopping on board by adding deeper shades but they come with a hefty price tag that doesn’t always seem worth it if you’re just a beginner or don’t contour as often. Or just want options without breaking the bank. Leave it to Iman to know exactly how us dark skin divas are feeling and catering to our needs. You go, Iman!


Urban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion Review

Urban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion

Ahh, primer. I remember when I used to think that primer was completely unnecessary but now I can’t live without it. Whether you’re dry or oily, primer is an absolute must because it helps your makeup glide on like butter, last longer and just generally look better. There’s a lot of great primers out there but my current fave is theUrban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion.


Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Lipstick Swatches

Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Lipsticks: Chocolate Cherries, Chocolate Milkshake, Chocolate Honey, Metallic Chocolate Diamonds, Metallic Candy Bar, Metallic Frozen Hot Chocolate

The Too Faced Melted Chocolate Lipsticks are here! I need more liquid lipsticks like I need a hole in my head but Too Faced is making things really hard for me with their new round of Melted Chocolate Lipsticks. They’re just like the original Melted and Metallic Liquified Lipsticks except this time they’re dipped in chocolate and feature a yummy chocolate scent that makes them oh so hard to resist. I could easily buy them all!


New Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Shades!

Stila Ricco, Beso, Baci Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

Holiday collections get me every time. The sets and palettes are always super cute and come with amazing prices. The only thing I don’t like is that all of the good stuff is usually limited edition. Never to be seen again. I branched out a lot over the holidays and tried a couple of new brands including Stila. I’ve never tried any Stila products before but when they released 2 limited edition mini liquid lipstick sets I knew it was the perfect time to jump on board.


Everyday Cheeks with the MAC Faerie Whispers Collection

MAC Faerie Whispers Pearl Blossom Beauty Powder, Cheek Pollen Blush

I love a pop of color as much as the next girl but sometimes I just want to rock a natural look. Something quick and simple that won’t leave me in the mirror for 30+ minutes blending my little heart out until my arms get tired. That’s why I was excited to see the MAC Faerie Whispers Collection for holiday last year. Faerie Whispers was loaded with soft, shimmering neutrals that I knew would be perfect for my quick, everyday looks.


NYX Up the Bass & Goal Digger Matte Lipstick Review

NYX Goal Digger & Up the Bass Matte Lipstick

There’s a lot to love about working at Ulta and a lot to hate too. For instance, I love being the first makeup junkie to check out all of the new releases and receive tons of nice gratis. But the one thing I hate is that it’s incredibly tempting to be around all beauty all the time. Especially when the new releases roll around. I just have to have it all!

When my store received a handful of new NYX releases for Spring I was all over it. There were highlighting and contouring goodies, new glosses and even new Matte Lipstick shades. Now you know I love me some lipstick so I mad dashed for 2 of them that I just couldn’t live without: Up the Bass and Goal Digger.


L’Oreal 316 Statement Nude & 318 Bare Attraction Infallible Pro Matte Gloss Review

L'Oreal 316 Statement Nude, 318 Bare Attraction Infallible Pro Matte Gloss

Liquid lipsticks were all the rage in 2015 but it appears that lip gloss is making a comeback this year. After much anticipation, L’Oreal finally launched the Infallible Pro Matte Gloss here in the states and they’re already making a big splash. Naturally, curiosity got the best of me when I spotted a fresh display of them at my local Target so I picked up 2 nude shades to see if they were worth the hype.
