Peach Me, I’m Dreaming! 

Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection Swatches on Dark Skin

Just when you thought Too Faced couldn’t get any cuter, Jerrod turns around and whips up an entire Sweet Peach Collection filled with eyeshadow, lip gloss and more that all smell like freshly picked peaches. I’m dying! I’m a sucker for cute packaging and yummy smelling makeup so you know I was all over the Sweet Peach Collection. My obsession first started last year when Too Faced dropped the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette and set the makeup world (and my soul) on fire. Now, I’ve got an entire collection of Sweet Peach goodies to pair with it and I’m oh so giddy. Yay for peaches!

Fancie Faves

LORAC Mega Pro 3 Palette, Tarte Color Wheel Amazonian Clay Blush Palette, Tarte Rogue The Lip Sculptor Lipstick and Gloss, Becca Backlight Priming Filter, Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil, Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, MAC Copper Face Compact

No matter how much new makeup I buy I always find myself reaching for some of the same products over and over again. Of course, I like to switch a few things up from time to time but when it comes to certain products I like to just stick to what works. Especially when I’ve got a busy schedule ahead of me. That’s why I ended up keeping the same handful of products in rotation last month. Nothing’s better than a quick everyday beat with your faves!

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul: Day 6

Tarte The Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lip Gloss in Sass, Intoxicating and Rogue

Just when you thought you’ve seen the last of my Ulta 21 Days of Beauty hauls I unleash more. Don’t you just love it?? I wasn’t kidding at all when I told you guys that Ulta had me hooked almost everyday for the entire event. There were so many great beauty steals this time around that had me mapping out a budget and whipping out my trusty pink highlighter to strategize. It got real!

There were a few things here and there that I wasn’t quite interested in at first but there a lot more beauty steals that I knew I was going to end up indulging in. Like the Tarte Double Duty Beauty Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lip Gloss that went on sale for half off on Day 6. For just $12, you could grab up to 2 (or more if you cheat) of Tarte’s creamy, buttery smooth Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lip Gloss to tickle your fancy.

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.

The LORAC Alter Ego Dynamic Duo Sets Are a Steal!

LORAC Goddess & Secret Agent Alter Ego Dynamic Duo Set

Is it just me or are the holiday collections and sets coming much faster nowadays? We’ve barely made it halfway through September and we’re already starting to see limited edition palettes and value sets that are more geared towards the holidays. Crazy right? I’m not exactly complaining though because I love a good holiday palette and I can never pass up a good value set. But dang! Let a sista breathe and hold on to some coins!

Too Faced Lip Injection Power Plumping Lip Gloss Review

Too Faced Lip Injection Power Plumping Lip Gloss

When I was growing up, I used to be so self-conscious about my big, full lips. I was a very slim girl with a small face and small features. My ears and nose were tiny and cute. But my lips? They stood out like a sore thumb. I was teased a lot about my lips as a kid and as a I grew into a teen I began to hate them. I used to wish my lips were smaller and more dainty. Man, those days were rough!

Now, I look back and laugh because full lips are so in style that people are paying big bucks to have them. If I could go back in time and give my younger self a piece of advice I’d say, “Girl you better flaunt them lips!” Having big lips isn’t a flaw or imperfection. If anything, it’s a blessing because there’s more room for bomb lipsticks and glosses. Just look at Kylie Jenner. She got lip injections and bam! Now she’s a social media sensation with a successful makeup brand. The possibilities of big lips are endless!

KaePop Til You Drop!

ColourPop x Karreuche KaePop

Just when you thought the ColourPop x Karrueche Collection was coming to an end they keep the ball rolling. That’s so ColourPop! I honestly wasn’t expecting much from Karrueche’s first ColourPop collection because I’ve never really paid attention to her style and makeup. But you know me. I can’t resist anything shiny, new or ColourPop so I eventually ordered her limited edition Ultra Matte Lips and Super Shock Cheek highlighter and ended up loving every piece.

I went from: “I don’t know about your collection, girl”

To: “Okay, Karrueche! Come through boo!”

MAC Vamplify Gloss is Back!

MAC Vamplify Gloss is Back!

Last year, MAC released the Vamplify Collection featuring the most amazing line of lip glosses I’ve ever tried. I hated that they were limited edition because I really loved the formula and the colors that MAC whipped up were really something nice. Lucky for us, MAC doubled back on Vamplify collection and re-released it this summer including those beautiful Vamplify glosses that I just couldn’t stop wearing. Yaaaaas! Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who thought the Vamplify glosses were due for a comeback because MAC brought back a handful of last year’s shades plus some new ones to fall in love with. I couldn’t be happier!
