Laura Geller Just Blushing Palette

It takes a lot to make me blush but Laura Geller has me blushing all over the place with her new Just Blushing Palette. From the moment my package arrived I’ve been Just Blushing around every time I flip it open. Who wouldn’t get a little cheeky looking at this beauty? It’s so pretty! There’s beautiful marbled baked blushes and even one with a kiss print. The Just Blushing Palette is a blush junkie’s dream and its got me swooning all over the place these days.

Laura Geller The Delectables Eyeshadow Palette Swatches

Laura Geller The Delectables Eyeshadow Palette

Brands like MAC, NARS and Urban Decay will always be popular but there’s plenty of other brands that deserve a little more love too. Like Laura Geller. Like many of us, I’ve been sleeping on Laura Geller but she has some pretty amazing products in her lineup. It took Gilded Honey becoming a social media sensation for me to take notice of Laura Geller but she’s more than just bomb highlighters. You can basically call Laura Geller the queen of baked (powders that is 🙈) because she’s got the game on lock. Her line mostly consists of baked highlights, blush, bronzer, foundation and more to get us all baked in style. ‘Cause we all like to get baked from time to time right? 😏

Tarte x MakeupShayla Tarteist Contour Palette Review

Tarte x MakeupShayla Tarteist Contour Palette

Everyone has a favorite YouTuber or two and one of mine is MakeupShayla. I don’t always have the time to watch her YouTube tutorials but I often live on her Snapchat when I’m on the go. Whether she’s getting ready for an event, showing us footage for an upcoming tutorial or just hanging on the scene with her friends I hear Beyonce’s Formation play in my head. Baby she slays! MakeupShayla slays everything that she does from her amazing style to her insanely gorgeous makeup looks and I’m obviously not the only one that noticed. Tarte (along with her thousands of subscribers and followers) also picked up on MakeupShayla’s unique brand of black girl magic and decided to collaborate with her to create a deeper version of Tarte’s original Tarteist Contour Palette. And, honey, it slays just as hard as MakeupShayla does!

ELF ILikeWeylie Face Palette Review

ELF ILikeWeylie Face Palette

When you’ve been wearing makeup for years, you start to get an idea of what colors, formulas and brands will work for you and the ones that don’t. But every now and then we get it wrong. I’m well aware that I have a warm undertone and a little extra melanin to spare so I like to opt for warm, rich colors that I know will show up on my skin tone. So I figured that the new limited edition ELF ILikeWeylie Face Palette would be a good option for me because it featured two orange-toned blushes, a champagne highlighter and a deep bronzer that all looked like it would work well for my brown skin. Boy I was wrong!

Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion Review

Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion

Dry skin is no fun but it doesn’t always have to be a pain in the butt. Not when you have the right tools! I always surprise people when I tell them my skin is seriously dry because I never walk out the door. But that’s only because I take moisturizing and exfoliating very seriously. Especially exfoliating. Some people are lucky enough to only have to focus on exfoliating once or twice a week but removing dead skin cells is a huge focus of mine. So much so, that I exfoliate daily. Yes daily. I can’t be walking around with dry, crusty skin under my makeup, girl!

MAC It’s a Strike Collection for Fall 2016

MAC It's a Strike Collection for Fall 2016

I would have never thought in a million years MAC would create a bowling inspired collection but I’m with it! My long manicured nails and bowling (or any sport for that matter) doesn’t mix so it’s not something I regularly enjoy but I’ve got a thing for cute limited edition collections and pretty compacts so I’m willing to let MAC tickle my fancy this fall with the upcoming It’s a Strike Collection for fall. There’s eyeshadow, blush, nail polish and even a fun bowling theme embossed face powder that I’m dying to get my hands on. I can’t bowl to save my life so why not add a cute bowling compact to my collection to get a little sports action in my life? Come on, I know you’ll want it too!
