Let’s take a quick break from all these incredibly tempting new fall and holiday collections. Shall we? I don’t know about you but my head is spinning from all the newness in the beauty world right now. It’s so overwhelming! Lately, I’ve been finding myself spending and spending on more and more makeup that I don’t need. But I love shiny new things so I can never quite help myself.

I’ve been trying to keep myself a little grounded a little bit by exploring some old goodies in my collection and showing lots of love to the newer stuff that I’ve been buying and it’s been helping. Somewhat. Last month, I found myself reaching for a few of the same products every time I did my makeup. Which is nice because I got a chance to really appreciate some products that deserved lots of love and attention.

Ipsy Gen Beauty NY Swag Bag & Haul Part Two

Leaders 7 Wonders Amazonian Acari Anti-Pollution Mask, Pur-lisse Blue Lotus + Seaweed Treatment Sheet Mask, Befine Skincare, Josie Maran Argan Balm, Skinfix Foaming Oil Cleanser, Make Beauty Dual Phase Eye Makeup Remover, Derma E Overnight Peel, Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub

You didn’t think I forgot about showing you day 2 of Ipsy’s Gen Beauty NY? I wouldn’t do you like that, girl! It’s been a busy week trying to catch up on some much needed rest after spending the weekend in the city that never sleeps. But my tired body is finally coming around and recuperating from all the excitement Gen Beauty had to offer. The first day was pretty insane and incredibly overwhelming considering it was my only my second time going. Not to mention braving all those large crowds and massive brands on my own. Gen Beauty was still a magical experience though that may have initially left me drained but ultimately inspired.

You guys have no idea how much I’d love to spend every waking moment creating new content, looks and (in the future!) videos to share with my all time favorite people. There’s nothing in the world more inspiring and motivating than knowing that there’s other makeup junkies and divas who appreciate and can relate to my passion for beauty.

It seems like summer just started and then bam! It’s September. Now we’re pushing into fall and getting ready to switch out our glossy bold lips for something a little more sexy. Like vampy mattes. I’m never ready for the colder weather but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love fall makeup. I love the sultry, smokey vibes and rich earth tones that come with fall. I love it just as much as I love the more fun releases we see in the summer. Even though I’m ready for fall makeup I know I’m going to have a hard time kissing some of my summer faves goodbye. Lucky for me, some of my recent faves can easily transition into fall. Which is a huge plus because I seriously fell in love with some new products in August that I’m not ready to let go at all.

Make Your Imperfections Vanish with Hourglass

Influenster Hourglass Vanish Vox Box

It’s always a pleasant surprise when I receive random goodies in the mail from Influenster but the latest Hourglass Vanish Vox Box is the best one yet. This Vox Box is bomb! Hourglass recently released a new line of foundation sticks and Influenster sent me one along with the coordinating foundation brush to review for you guys. I don’t usually reach for foundation sticks but I was still beyond excited to get my hands on the new Hourglass Vanish Foundation Stick because it’s been receiving glowing reviews since it released and Hourglass makes some seriously nice, luxury makeup.

Bask in the Light of the Hourglass Luminous Light Palette

Hourglass Ambient Luminous Light Palette

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a wonderful time of year when new fall collections and limited edition beauty products hit the market at crazy good prices for just a limited time. It’s pretty much like Christmas in July as you get to save big bucks on your favorite brands from Diane von Furstenburg to NARS. I love how Nordstrom likes to let us grab the new fall trends first at a great price but I’m always super excited about the exclusive limited edition beauty goodies that brands create especially for Nordstrom. I’m usually wooed by the MAC and NARS offerings but this year Hourglass stole the show with the new, limited edition Luminous Light Palette.

Sephora Holiday Reward Card Haul

Sephora Reward Card Haul

Has anyone else been having way too much fun holiday shopping this year? For some reason, I’m feeling extra jolly and in a mood to treat myself this Christmas. Work hard, play hard right?

This year, the holiday collections and new releases have been really good so I’ve been indulging in just about every sale I can crash in time. Including Sephora’s annual holiday reward card event where Beauty Insiders can save up to $25 off their purchase of $50. I’m just a regular ol’ Beauty Insider this year so I scored just $15 off my order but I’m not complaining.
