Wednesday’s aren’t just for pink! They’re for glitter too! You may not have noticed but glitter is the next big trend this season and it’s making waves in a fierce way. From glittery eyes to glittery lips, everyone is jumping on the glitter craze and pumping out fun new products for us to sparkle and shine like a diamond princess all spring and summer. Including Stila. Stila jumped in feet first with the new Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows that are so mystical and magical that it’s hard for stores to keep them in stock.

Happy New Year! Is it just me or is anyone else glad that the holiday season is finally over? When you work in retail the holiday season feels like a rollercoaster. As Thanksgiving approaches, it’s like you’re slowly chugging up that massive hill preparing for that stomach wrenching drop. Once Thanksgiving finally rears its head, you’re at the top of the hill and it’s starting to drop down at the speed at light. That’s exactly how this past holiday season felt. A long, crazy paced, never-ending rollercoaster. I’m exhausted!

Believe it or not, I’m just now getting a chance to slow down and round up my 2016 faves and my Christmas gifts to share with you. It’s crazy how much I missed you guys! Work has been kicking my butt but one of my goals for the new year is to be more engaged with you and to give you more quality content than you can handle. So the show must go on!

Stila Stay All Day, Sparkle All Night Liquid Lipstick Set is Glitter Heaven! 

Stila Stay All Day Sparkle All Night Liquid Lipstick Set Swatches on Dark Skin

There are a few things I look forward to every holiday season: sweet potato pie, comfy scarves and Stila’s liquid lipstick sets. Every year, Stila releases a Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick set or two and I make it my duty to grab one. The Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks really do stay all day and aren’t too drying either. Which is a huge plus when it comes to matte liquid lipsticks. They’re a little pricey though at $24 a pop so I like to snag them in holiday sets where I can get the most bang for my buck.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

You thought I forgot about Pink Wednesday didn’t you? Nope, girl! I’ve been a little busier than normal but we all need a little pink pick me up from time to time. This week’s pink pick features a few cute goodies from Stila that I received as gratis. I loved how Stila coordinated the pinks all together because I love pink and everything is so girly and cute. Plus who couldn’t use some pink lipstick and blush?

There’s a ton of reasons to make all of your beauty purchases at Ulta but the best one is the rewards program. Hands down! Racking up points at Ulta doesn’t just get you deluxe samples or impossibly hard to get mega sets. Shade but no shade. Sorry Sephora. I’ma let you finish but Ulta has the best rewards program around! Instead of getting deluxe samples of goodies you’d essentially receive for free elsewhere Ulta rewards you with dollars off your next purchase. The more points you have the better!

I’ve been spending up a storm over the last few months at Ulta but it’s all paid off because I was able to score almost all of the new limited edition holiday sets and palettes on my list without breaking the bank. I let my points stack up to 2,300 and redeemed them for $133 off. Talk about win! I couldn’t wait to grab a grey bag and fill it up with my top holiday picks so far this year.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Review

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

Makeup is all about being creative and having fun but there’s a few products that should definitely be taken seriously–like liquid eyeliner. Like animals, liquid eyeliner can smell fear and intimidation. It just seems to prey on the meek and innocent leaving crooked lines and black smears all over the place. Liquid eyeliners can be dangerous! Well, sometimes. The liquid eyeliners that come with those little flimsy brushes that require a steady, experienced painting hand are definitely dangerous. However, the felt tip marker liquid eyeliners are a lot less intimidating and dangerous. After years of despising liquid liners, I’ve kinda grown a liking to Sharpie-esque liquid liners. They’re so much easier to use and control–even with a shaky hand.


The Best Eyeliners That Just Won’t Quit

The Best Eyeliners

Finding a good quality eyeliner that lasts all day can be a bit of a struggle. Especially if you have oily lids or watery eyes. Nothing helps to make eyes stand out better than eyeliner so it’s important to make sure you find the right formula to help you line and define your eyes with ease and assurance that it’ll last throughout the day. Unfortunately, everyone doesn’t have the pleasure, time or funds to buy every popular eyeliner on the market and personally test drive it to see how it really holds up. Lucky for us, my pals over at Reviews.com has put in quite a bit of research to help us pick the best eyeliners that’ll last and last. Some of their top picks are also some of my favorites so I figured I’d share the article with you guys to make your lives a little easier and help your makeup be point for life.

New Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Shades!

Stila Ricco, Beso, Baci Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

Holiday collections get me every time. The sets and palettes are always super cute and come with amazing prices. The only thing I don’t like is that all of the good stuff is usually limited edition. Never to be seen again. I branched out a lot over the holidays and tried a couple of new brands including Stila. I’ve never tried any Stila products before but when they released 2 limited edition mini liquid lipstick sets I knew it was the perfect time to jump on board.


Stila Eternal Love Liquid Lipstick Set Swatches

Liquid lipsticks have become my weakness so you know I was all over the new Stila sets for holiday. They’re just too cute! There’s 2 sets: Eternally Yours, which contains 6 deluxe mini lipsticks, and Eternal Love, which contains 3 deluxe mini lipsticks. I just had to snatch up Eternal Love after swatching it because the colors looked beautiful against my complexion. It was game on!


Ulta Black Friday Haul

If there’s one time of year where I’m likely to lose all control it’s hands down Black Friday. It’s virtually impossible for me to have any self control when there’s sales everywhere. At first, I thought I’d manage to be a good girl because nothing was really catching my eye.

“I can do this!”

Once Black Friday finally arrived, I popped a single Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick into my cart and thought I would call it a day. “I don’t need any of those door busters from work,” I kept telling myself. Then I clocked in and started feeling that Black Friday spirit. Immediately, I began plotting on like 5 sets but I managed to talk myself down to just 2 with a bonus goodie.
