January Empties! 

It Cosmetics No. 50 Serum Anti-Aging Collagen Primer, Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Turbo Face Serum, Prada Candy Eau de Parfum, Clinique All About Eyes Eye Cream, Bare Minerals Skin Longevity Vital Power Infusion

Let’s take a quick break from Project BOMB, shall we? You’ve probably noticed that I’ve picked up a ton of new goodies in the last few months but what you probably didn’t know is that I’ve also been determined to start using what’s already in my stash more. Whether you’re a beauty blogger or beauty enthusiast, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype of the hottest shiny new product but what really matters is actually using the stuff. No sense in wasting money on things you won’t use, right?

With this logic in mind, I decided to start going hard with a few products that I knew I could finish up with a little consistency and determination. In just a few months, I managed to finish up a handful of beauty products. Woo hoo! Most of it was skincare, of course, but I’m still pretty impressed that I was able to stick with these products for so long. Here’s a rundown of my January empties:

Ipsy Gen Beauty NY Swag Bag & Haul Part One

Ipsy Gen Beauty NY Haul & Goodies

For the past week, I’ve been working on sharing my experience and goodies from Ipsy’s Generation Beauty New York but I’ve been so tired! Not just because I spent hours walking around mingling with other beauty bloggers and waiting in line to meet amazing brand reps. It’s mostly because I spent the majority of my weekend exploring New York (on foot ?) and partying with my best friends who are avid members of #teamnosleep on vacation. In between mixing and mingling at Gen Beauty, I was up until around 5 a.m. (or later) soaking in the city and partying with my favorite girls in the world. I had a blast! However, I’m still incredibly tired an entire week later. I could absolutely go for some hibernation right now. LOL!

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty: Day 2 Haul

Becca Lantana Mineral Blush, Flowerchild Mineral Blush, Opal Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured, Bare Minerals Bare Skin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer in Dark to Deep

There’s been a lot of exciting things happening in the beauty community these days but the most epic has to be Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty event. It’s rare to catch a discount on Prestige brands of makeup and skincare from any retailer. But I think it’s especially hard to do at Ulta because 99% of their coupons exclude the higher end brands. However, Ulta makes it up to us twice a year by giving us some pretty steep discounts on certain brands and products during 21 Days of Beauty.


Steals, Deals & New Releases at Ulta!

Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks + Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil Now Available!

Today is a great day to be an Ulta Beauty Platinum Member! The Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks (yes all 100 shades) are now available online today only for Platinum Ultamate Rewards Members. That’s right, you get early access for being such a loyal shopper. Yay! Benefit is also joining the early access party with the new Goof Proof Brow Pencil that’s also available online today only for Platinum Members. Not Platinum yet? No problem! You’ll be able to get your hands on the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks on June 11th online or June 16th in store and the new Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil on June 24th. Sadly, I can’t use my discount online so I’ll be waiting until the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks hit stores. I seriously can’t wait to experience the greatness of all 100 shades!

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss Swatches

Bare Minerals Punchy Melons Marvelous Moxie Buttercream, Tantalizing Honey Marvelous Moxie Buttercream, Cha-Ching Cherry Marvelous Moxie Buttercream, Daredevil Marvelous Moxie Gloss

Don’t you just love holiday sets? I know I do! Not only are they a great value but they also make great gifts. For Christmas, I bought my bffs a handful of makeup goodies including the Bare Minerals Lovely Lips Unlocked Moxie Lip Gloss set. The set was limited edition for holiday, of course, and included 10 mini Marvelous Moxie and Buttercream glosses for $46. I decided to split up the set between the two of them as gifts. But not before pulling out a few shades for myself.


Prestige Skincare Now Available at CVS!

CVS Prestige Skincare: Murad, Peter Thomas Roth, Dermalogica, Bare Minerals, Bliss, Philosophy

I used to live at CVS last year when I discovered all of the perks (and coupons) of joining their Beauty Club. Then I started working for Bobbi Brown and found myself binging on all of the high end beauty I was surrounded by 5 days a week. I still like to pop into to CVS every once in a while though and during my latest trip I was left with my mouth hanging open when I walked through the skincare aisle.


Merry Christmas!

NARS Fantascene Despair Cheek Palette, Urban Decay Vice4 Palette, MAC Pearl Sunshine Beauty Powder, MAC Cheek Pollen Blush

Merry Christmas loves! I hope all of you are enjoying the holiday just as much as I am this year. For some reason, it’s still unseasonably warm here in Michigan (around 50º) and I’ve been showering myself with presents all month. Plus, my family is all together today sharing lots of food, laughs and love. And, of course, more gifts!

November Glam Bag

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

I’ve received my second Ipsy Glam bag and I’m proud to say the love is still here! This month’s theme was Party Perfect and I definitely feel party ready with these goodies. I’ll be honest though. I was a little upset that only the newbies received the Benefit They’re Real mascara mini. I got SOO excited when I received an email about my all time favorite mascara being included in this month’s bag only to be disappointed by a brow gel. I barely have brows. What the hell am I supposed to do with this?? Anywho!
