Hi everyone! I know I’m really late on the band wagon, but I finally got my hands on the Naked 2 palette after enjoying the Naked 1 so much! At first I wasn’t sure if I would get use any out of it, but the more I swatched, the more workable the shadows became! The shades are definitely more cool toned than the Naked1, and the packaging has been upgraded to a metal case instead of cardboard one. I actually really like the shades in here, especially all the taupey shades and the darker shades. I think this palette is really great for someone who doesn’t like a lot of fuss or wants to invest in single eyeshadows. Have you guys tried this palette? :)

This post has been a long time coming, but I wanted to show you guys the Loreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipsticks! These little beauties have been on sale a lot recently, they come in a bunch of colors and really cute gold packaging! They are usually around $9, but I have seen them on clearance for around $3, the formula is super comfortable, light weight, and glossy. I really like these for on the go days when I don’t want to bother with lipstick. You do have to re-apply throughout the day if you want to keep the color on your lips, but overall, a couple of these in your collection is warranted. The shades: Merino Mauve, Sunset Angora, and Fiery Veil.

UK Beauty Lust List



Hi everyone! The UK has been one of those place I’ve been dying to visit, just because they have such a great selection of drugstore beauty brands. I really do think that their drugstore or “high street” products are much better than what the US has to offer, even though they do carry some of our brands. I heard a lot about all these products from some of my most loved UK beauty bloggers and YouTubers, so I’ve been slowly collecting a little list. <3 The lust list: Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer, Topshop Bronzer, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets, Bourjois CC Cream, Bourjois BB Bronzing Primer, Barry M Nail Paints, and the Bourjois Intense Eyeshadows. Let me know what you guys think! 

Mini Drugstore Haul!

I was driving to work and spotted a Shopper’s Drug Mart which I had never been to so I decided to pop in, and I’m so glad I did! They carried all the name brands as well as Prestige! I absolutely love Prestige, and in my opinion one of the better drugstore brands. The True Metal eyeshadow is SO pigmented, it’s crazy. I highly recommend it, as well as the mascara and eyeliners. The Orange Color tattoo is really fun, a really bright matte formula.The Rimmel lipstick was on clearance so I decided to try it, it’s ok. It feels comfortable on the lips, but it settles in fine lines and dry patches.Here is a full list of what I got: Prestige Total Intensity Automatic Eyeliner in Espresso and Black, Prestige Total Intensity Beyond Lashes Mascara in Jet Black, Prestige Total Intensity Dual Pencil Sharpener, Prestige Total Intensity True Metal Eyeshadow in Copper, Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight, and the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Fierce and Tangy.

Ok, this palette is gorgeous. I was able to find this on Ebay, where I like to shop around for all the older limited edition makeup items, and I was so pleased that I could pick this up! This collection was actually part of their Holiday 2013 Nars Loves Miami Collection, and originally came in a gift set. It has the Laguna bronzer and Orgasm blush which is awesome, and 4 shades of eyeshadow. I absolutely love the eyeshadow shades, really easy to wear, especially loving the bright purple, which I don;t really have in my collection. The look is amazing! Sorry I couldn’t post, I was having issues with the swatches. What do you guys think? <3

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Punjab

20140714_175243 copy20140714_175251 copy20140714_175307 copy20140714_175334 copyHi everyone! <3 I wanted to do a quick review on my newest foundation, the Nars Sheer Glow foundation in Punjab. This foundation is fabulous, it’s very dewy and natural looking, while still having buildable coverage. This shade is really dead on for me right now especially because I have a bit of a tan, and with bronzer it’s really quite flattering. What I love about this is that it really sets in a nice way. It doesn’t stay sticky or wet feeling on the face, like most dewy foundations, and it doesn’t make me break out! I do still set it with a translucent powder, but it could go without it. It really conceals all my discoloration and evens out my skin tone really well! Highly recommend!

I feel like I’m always on the run, and the two things I always need handy is concealer and lipstick. These are what I carry around with me if I don’t have my full makeup bad with me: Sheercover Duo Concealer in light/medium, MAC Flair for Finery, MAC Blankety, and MAC Modesty. I use my Rebecca Minkoff Cory Pouch, which I absolutely love! It’s really nice high quality, thick leather with gold detailing. MAC lipsticks are one of my all time favorite formulas, especially the creamsheen formula. Flair for Finery was a limited edition shade from the last holiday season, but it is a really nice light nude shade. MAC Blankety is all ALL TIME favorite nude lipstick. It is super pigmented and it really flattering on the lips. The Sheer Cover concealer I got in one of my first Ipsy bags and I’ve been really loving it since. Super creamy and blendable, and looks like skin. What do you guys have in your bag on to go?

Staple Jewelry Round Up

I love jewelry, I usually wear one or two of my staple pieces on the daily. I absolutely love gold toned jewelry, because I think it just works with my skin tone. I find my jewelry from different places, of course I hunt around in H&M and Franchesca’s , but I really love finding unique vintage style pieces from antique shops, boutiques, thrift stores, and pawn shops. Ebay is another great place to find great jewelry for a great price. My newest edition was the crystal pendant, it’s dainty and matches with nearly everything. Another fav at the moment is my Kenneth Cole watch. I love the white leather and the mirrored face, super summery and stylish. A statement ring is always my go to grab before running out the door. What are some of you favorite pieces?

They are already pretty affordable $2.80 each, so I decided to pick up a few. I was really drawn to the creamy pastels and the speckled polishes. I got 4 cream shades and 2 speckled shades, the formula of these I actually like. They take about 2 coats to be opaque, but they are really awesome for the price. Have you tried these?
