Walgreens Disney Vixen’s Kiss Lip Color Set Review

Disney Maleficent Vixen's Kiss Lip Color Set

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably thinking, “This Walgreens Disney Villains Collection is just too cute to use!” The packaging may feel cheap but the novelty of the our favorite villains plastered on every piece will probably never wear off. I’ve already cracked open the lipsticks yet I’ve still found a way to let them sit pretty on my vanity for a few more days. I’ll probably end up doing the same with Maleficent’s Vixen’s Kiss Lip Color Set too because these chubby lipstick pencils are both functional and adorable.

Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil Review

Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil

Oils are a miracle when it comes to makeup and skincare. Some can easily melt makeup while others can do more complex things like condition and renew skin. There’s even oils out there that can soothe and cleanse skin, too. Like Bobbi Brown’s Soothing Cleansing Oil.

The Soothing Cleansing Oil is basically an oil based makeup remover and cleanser in one that’s suitable for all skin types. Even oily. It’s formulated with a blend of Jasmine flower extract and botanical oils to dissolve makeup and impurities without disrupting your skin’s natural balance.

L’Oreal Rose True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator Review

L'Oreal Rose True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator

Rose gold glow? Yes please! There’s been a wave of rose gold highlights over the last year and I’m loving it. It just looks so good! Especially when on WOC. I’ve always been a sucker for golden highlights but I’ve come close to kicking them to the curb for that dazzling rose gold glow that makes my face dance in the light.

Kerastase Vox Box First Impressions

Kerastase Resistance Bain Therapiste Shampoo, Soin Premier Therapiste

It’s always a good day when I receive a Vox Box from Influenster! Most times, I receive goodies from brands I’m familiar with (and usually love) but every now and then I get to try something different. Which is the real treat. I’ve ended up trying some really great products that I probably wouldn’t have tried otherwise.

This time around I received some haircare goodies from Kerastase that I’m positive I would have walked right past if I spotted them out while shopping. My hair is pretty thick and curly so I tend to stick to the ethnic section of haircare aisles plus I prefer products that I can actually pronounce LOL. However, the Kerastase Vox Box has turned out to be a pretty good thing!

L’Oreal Golden True Match Lumi Powder Illuminator Review

L'Oreal Golden True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator

Summer is over but that doesn’t mean you can’t glow this fall! I’m not the only the one who thinks so either. Everywhere you turn, there’s a shimmering new highlighter on the horizon (cough, Becca, cough) somewhere. Not too long ago, L’Oreal released a collection of illuminators to help you shimmer and sheen your way through the year and I think they’re pretty nice.

Here’s 3 Pixi Products You Need To Try..

Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist, Glow Mist, Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner

Having an Instagram account can be bittersweet at times. I love being able to connect with other makeup junkies and drool over all that luscious makeup porn. But the enabling that comes with it? Insane! I’ve lost count how many times I’ve ran out to buy something after seeing it on Instagram. It’s a seriously dangerous place!

I recently fell victim to all the Pixi porn on Instagram and ended up running to Target to grab 3 of Pixi’s hottest products: the Makeup Fixing Mist, Glow Mist and Glow Tonic. I’ve been using them for a couple of weeks now and I have to admit that I’m glad I let Instagram enable me one last time.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Forever 21 Love & Beauty Cosmetic Sponges

Happy Pink Wednesday! It’s Breast Cancer Awareness month so it’s important to make sure we pink it up every chance we get in support of our loved ones. This week, I thought it would be cool to share a little Breast Cancer Awareness love with pink budget beauty buy. I actually found this pack of pink heart shaped makeup sponges months ago at Forever 21 but when I spotted them again recently I knew it was time to share them.

Even More ColourPop Goodies!

Oh Snap Lippie Stix, Kapow Ultra Matte Lipstick, Chilly Chili Ultra Matte Lipstick, So Quiche Super Shock Shadow, Monster Super Shock Cheek, Most Necessary Super Shock Cheek, Sticky Sweet Super Shock Cheek, Highly Waisted Super Shock Cheek

Because I can’t go too long without finding myself on ColourPop adding more goodies to my cart. I just can’t help myself! When everything is excellent quality and under $10 how do you resist? The answer is you don’t. You buy it all until there’s nothing left on your list. Like I’m over here doing LOL.

ColourPop is still a pretty new brand but I was one of the last ones on the bandwagon so I’ve managed to whip an extensive list of “must-haves” in the last few months. There’s basically everything on it including lipsticks, shadows, blushes and now eyeliners. My first and second orders were mostly all about the lippies but my latest haul is all about cheeks.
