Ardell Falsies 105 Review

You guys know I love me some lashes! Whenever I’m out and spot a nice pair I feel obligated to pick them up. It’s like second nature! One of my all time favorite falsies are the 120 style by Ardell (shame on me for not reviewing them yet!) so when I seen these at Walgreens I knew I had to have them! They’re very similar to my fave falsies except they have much less volume and seem to be more daytime appropriate.

Nars Multiple in Lamu Swatches & Review

The only thing I’m more addicted to buying other than lippies is highlighters! I will never get enough of the glow they give and the way they warm up my face. Finding a great highlighter is truly satisfying! And I’m completely glowing with satisfaction over this Nars multiple! At first, I was a little leery about trying one because the multiples are a bit pricey at $39 but I find them totally worth it! Some of the shades can be used as both a blush and highlighter but Lamu is more on the highlighter side. But it’s so darn beautiful I find myself skipping the blush when I wear this.

Coastal Scents 22 Brush Set Review Part One

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

I’ve had this brush set for quite some time now and I think I’m more than ready to give you guys the run down. If I had to sum up this set in just one word it would be: AMAZING! I was on the fence about purchasing this 22 brush set from Coastal Scents for a while because I wasn’t sure about the quality of their brushes but I couldn’t be happier with it. There’s a reason ladies rave about this set so much. It’s an investment! Not only do you get 22 lusciously soft brushes but they come packaged in a sturdy faux black leather case that holds more than enough brushes. You can even double the eye brushes in one slot and carry about 10-15 more slim brushes in the case with no extra bulk and no damage. The case itself is surprisingly pretty thin. Even with all 22 brushes inside it’s still a great size for travel and doesn’t take up a lot of space at all.

I know I’m super late but I’m still seriously enjoying my MAC Glamour Daze haul!

It was filled to the brim with delicious goodies for just about every beauty under the sun. One of my favorites of the collection was this bright magenta lipstick cleverly named Outrageously Fun. It’s the perfect bright fall lipstick!

I haven’t been wearing eyeshadow much but I was still pretty excited to try out the NYC Individual Eyes compact I received in my Influenster Beauty Blogger vox box. It was smokey just how I like it! The compact contains a mix of frosty smokey shades that looks like they’ll create the perfect smokey look. I’ve never tried any of NYC’s shadows but the compact looked pretty decent. Check it out!

Sleek Contour Kit Swatches & Review

I couldn’t resist buying this contour kit after seeing so many bloggers and gurus rave about it. I must say, this kit is totally worth the hype! I don’t know how I ever lived without it! It’s super easy to find a nice highlighter but finding a matte bronzer deep enough to contour with can be extremely difficult for us darker gals. Especially if you’re not looking to spend an arm and a leg. However, Sleek totally nailed it with this kit! Check it out!
