H&M is stepping up its beauty game come Fall 2015 as they release a brand new selection of H&M Makeup come Fall ranging in prices from $2.99 to $24.99. But wait, this isn’t all about beauty as H&M will also have haircare, body care, and even beauty tools coming to H&M stores.
Hi everyone! ❤ I was perusing through the drugstore and stumbled across these beauties!! These are from Wet N’ Wild’s 2014 Limiited Edition Fall Collection, the Color Icon palettes $3.99 and the Megalast Matte Lipsticks $1.99! These are seriously gorgeous, and great quality for the price. I picked up 2 color icon palettes in Melrose at Night and Smoke and Melrose. They are beautiful satin-shimmer shadows that are mauvey neutrals. They are super buttery and creamy. The Megalast Matte Lipstick I believe are a new formula and come in rubberized packaging which I like, they remind me of the Bite lipsticks. These lipsticks are a must have. They are super creamy and pigmented and apply smooth and velvety. My favorite had to be the deep red color! The lip shades: Sweet Cream, Urban Night and Bordeaux Boulevard. Pick these up NOW!
Hi everyone! ❤ Fall is officially here and that means re-vamping my beauty staples. Lots of new goodies have been popping up lately, here are the items that made the list! What are your current or new fall beauty favs? My wish list: Bobbi Brown Nude on Nude Palette, Agave Lip Mask Champagne, NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow, Sephora Colorful Lace Eyeshadow, Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Body Butter Cream, and YSL Fusion Ink Foundation.
Hi everyone! ❤ I wanted to share some new lippies I picked up yesterday! They are the Flower Kiss Stick High-Shine Lipstick luxury Lipsticks. I am a HUGE fan of these lipsticks. Love the formula, packaging, price and scent. For drugstore, these are great quality and look really nice on my vanity. 🙂 These are really hydrating and glossy on the lips with intense pigment. The scent is slightly floral but nothing over powering, and I love how creamy and smooth they apply. The line was originally created by Drew Barrymore and what’s unique about the brand is that it is cruelty free, made in the USA, and formulated with high end ingredients. They are able to offer such great products for a low price because they take pride in not doing any paid advertising. I got: Apricot Blossom, Baby Buttercup and Berry Bloom.
Hi all! ❤ Fall is all about effortless luxe. I’m loving the thick, groomed brows and the brown, gilded smokey eyes. A soft, satiny lit from within face with a nude or dark berry lip. Love it! For hair, sleek and primped and a loose effortless up do is a must! Love the look on Cara Delevigne. Which trends will you be sporting this season? 🙂
Hi everyone! ❤ I’ve been hunting through Sephora and saw some interesting little tid bits that peaked my interest! Fall is right around the corner and that means switching up my beauty routine. Of course hydrated skin and a great bold eyeliner is always a must, but I’ve also been liking a hydrated tinted lip and bold lashes for fall. The new Nirvana Black perfume is a nice warm sultry scent, and the Drybar spray would be perfect for those effortless 2nd day waves! The list: Glamglow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment, Dior Addict Fluid Stick, Hourglass 1.5MM Mechanical Gel Eye Liner, Lancome Grandiose Mascara, Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 Spray, and Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black .
Fall is right around the corner and that means refreshing your wardrobe. Whether it’s going out and buying some new pieces or pulling out some oldies but goodies! I always find myself getting a great deal on last seasons fall/winter items during the summer, and wearing them that coming season. This fall, I’ve been super into layers, cozy cardigans with bold prints and luxe materials. Also, faux leather and black and grey tones have been really standing out to me. Digging around in stores like Forever21, H&M, Nordstrom Rack and other stores have really upped my arsenal without breaking my budget! Also check out their websites to check in for for more deals!
Hi everyone! Just wanted to quickly share Zoya’s new Fall Collection Entice Ignite! ❤ “Inspired by the classic wools, textured brocades and metallic accents of the season, Zoya’s new ENTICE & IGNITE collections create a palette of lush, deep color including wines, browns, navies and greys.” Just have to point out that there is a SANSA shade!!
“A bold, yet tender palette, dramatic enough to seduce the darkest hour – NARS Cosmetics introduces the captivating scene of the Fall 2014 Color Collection and the new Night Series Eyeliners. Eyes shine in amethyst and quartz shadows while intense black liners flecked with rich purple, gold, and green pearl provide intriguing depth. Lips smolder in warm reds and cheeks are softened with a wash of glistening pink. The Night Series eyeliners glide on smooth with ultra-saturated color in a single swipe while luminous micro-pearls set in jet black color light up the night.”
Soooooo I decided to resubscribe to Julep this month, annndd I’m kind of glad I did!!! I loved the galaxy mystery box they recently had, and am LOVING the October box! This month’s theme was The Rebel Set “A Collection to Light Up your Dark Side.”, and all the colors were really vampy and edgy, which is right up my ally! There was candy corn of course, which I think they had in last year’s October box, hopefully they are not left overs! 😄
These are the 4 polishes I got, three of them were part of the It Girl selections, and I decided to get an Add On because the shade was absolutely gorgeous. I LOVE all of these!!! I’m a sucker for deep unique metallic duochromey shades. The one all the way on the right was the Add On, and I LOVE it.
Here are the names from L to R: Missy, Valerie, Kendra, and Ciara.
Missy: Metallic light titanium silver
Valerie: Teal with iridescent microglitter
Kendra: Army green frost
Ciara: Vampy magenta with teal microglitter
What do you guys think!? 😀
Hello Everyone!! SO excited to share with you my October Julep Maven box! This one is in Classic with a Twist, but there are so many others that you can choose from! The box is really fun and Halloween themed, love the orange and black packaging. Of course there are the cards that explain your products and some extra info. Excited to see what I received!
The first thing I pull out is the little packet of candy corn!! Yum, so fun! I’m happy that they include little extras like this to make each box fun and unique. I personally love fall and Halloween, so this little goodie was handsomely welcomed! 🙂
Another couple goodies I found in my box were these little glitters! One orange and one black, again going along with the Halloween theme, and it seems like these are for nail art! Yay! They are so cute, I don’t even want to open them!
Now for the grand surprise. I had high hopes for this box, because they had some new polishes they were releasing for fall, and also some nail care items.
AHH!!! So HAPPY that I got this! This is the Julep Quick Dry Polish Drops with vitamin e and lavender, you use them on top of your finished nail to make them dry faster. I can’t wait to try this! 🙂
The two polishes I received were Boris and Nicole, and Gweneth. A lot of the boxes this month had crackle polishes, but I was actually happy to get these instead. I’m not a huge fan of the crackle effect on me personally, but these make up for it for sure! Boris and Nicole is a deep russet bronze color, and Gweneth is a very sheer pink jelly. Julep polishes are great quality, 4 Free, and don’t chip! I was a little worried about the bronze color when I saw it on screen, but it is so much gorgeous in person. So happy with it!
Here are the bottom of the polishes so you can see the names.
Swatches: Boris and Nicole, and Gweneth

Hi everyone, I went to Target today and picked up some new goodies that I have been eyeing for a while, and also some that just released!!
This is the Sonia Kashuk Eye Makeup Remover, I have been wanting to try this for MONTHS but couldn’t justify buying it because A. I have plenty of makeup remover, and B. it’s $10 price tag. :p I’m so glad I got this today though because I LOVE it SO much. I’ve been using a Lancome and Estee Lauder makeup remover which are even more expensive, and this is actually a good comparison. If I didn’t have the others, this would be my staple.
The liquid if a soft light lavender color and at first the bottle has 2 layers in it that you shake up. It smells light and fresh, not offensive at all, and it feels incredibly gentle and smooth on the skin. This stuff is VERY effective, and doesn’t leave my face feeling greasy. It removes all my eye, lip, and face makeup with ease and does not sting. It even removes my long-wearing and highly pigmented makeup products as well!! A+!
Next are these two ELF nail polishes that just released this fall I got for $2 each! I love what they did with the packaging and the colors in this range were gorgeous. I also noticed that the formula for these are definitely improved. How lovely are these deep plum shades!?
They both didn’t have any names, but they do have the numbers 23 and 24 on the bottom of the bottles. The left shade is a deep medium berry creme shade, so, so pretty. The right is a dark blue/purple shade with tiny blue and purple glitters. It reminds me of a discontinued MAC nail polish I have, can’t wait to wear these!
Swatches: 24 and 23
I also picked up this deep plum snakeskin emery board from ELF since it was just $1 and I actually needed one of these. I really like the pattern!
Lastly is another item that I have been eyeing for months. It’s the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Berry Haute. I’ve been so curious about this lipstick, and since you can’t try before you buy in drugstores, I’ve always given this a pass in the past. In the tube it looks like a very cool-toned medium berry color. I’ve hear this is a dupe for MAC’s Up The Amp, and it is actually quite similar!
Here’s the bottom of the lipstick so you can see the name. The texture is very creamy and easy to apply. The color is rich and very pigmented and lasts a long time on the lips! Be careful, because if you pile it on, it gives a more bright fucshia-y color and can pop more than you like! (unless you like that look!)
Swatch: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Berry Haute
Here I am wearing it, what do you guys think!?
