My Current Beauty WISHLIST!
Hey girls! ❤ I wanted to quickly share some beauty things I have been eyeing. Some are skincare and perfumes, but nonetheless, I need these in my collection! The Tom Ford Velvet Orchid Perfume I have sampled before, and absolutely loved it. It is a deep, sensual floral/woodsy scent, and lingers on the skin. The primer looks gorgeous and the other items are just must trys in my opinion. Here are the goods: Too Faced Born This Way Foundation, Becca Jaclyn Hill Champagne Shimmering Skin Perfector, YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer, Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer, Viseart Eyeshadow Palette, Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil, Tom Ford Velvet Orchid Perfume, and the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. Have you guys tried any of these ?
Stella by Stella McCartney
Hey girls! I hope everyone had a great holiday, I wanted to quickly share my new perfume staple that I received for my birthday, it’s the Stella by Stella McCartney. I absolutely love the bottle, I received the 1 oz size $50 at Sephora, which is a great size for my purse. The notes are: Rose, Peony Flower, Mandarin, Rose Absolute, and Amber. It’s definitely a feminine floral, but very rich, warm, and mysterious as well. I seriously love this scent. The concept of the Stella McCartney bath line is driven by a passion for ecological and organic cosmetology: selecting the best natural raw materials and capitalizing on vegetal extracts, organic agriculture, and extraction methods that respect and protect the natural life force of the plants. Love the concept behind this brand, learned something new after reading that description on the Sephora website. I highly recommend this fragrance for anyone looking for a new everyday floral staple.

Too Faced Everything Nice Holiday 2014 Palette
Hey lovelies! ❤ I just got my Too Faced Everything Nice Palette in the mail today! I’m so happy about it since I missed out on the big holiday palette they did last year, and I have to say, this is a real bang for your buck. It comes with a sparkly pink makeup case, 1 mini Better Than Sex Mascara, 3 mini brushes, 20 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, 1 highlighter, and 1 bronzer. This is a mega palette, and if you are planning on traveling anywhere, this would be an end all be all palette to bring with a couple other items. The eyeshadows are pretty good, love the color selection, and of course the bronzer and blushes are gorgeous. You are getting the chocolate soleil bronzer in here so the entire palette smells like chocolate! The little brushes are a nice extra, they could come in handy if you are in a pinch, overall I really like this palette, love the packaging, and can’t wait to use it more! This would make a great gift for the holidays!
Available for $56 at Sephora.
Hello Kitty 40th Anniversary Pop-Up Party Palette!
Hey beauties! 😀 This is the Hello Kitty 40th Anniversary Pop-Up Party Palette! It’s on sale now on Sephora for $26. Oh my goodness, I love this palette. At first I didn’t know what the quality was going to be like, but after swatching it in store, I knew I had to pick it up! The palette comes with a limited edition pop up case with a drawer with 20 eyeshadows. I absolutely love all the colors. I just wanted to give you a guys a quick sneak peek in case you wanted to pick one up for yourself! The drawer on mine was really hard to pull out, I felt like the drawer was too tightly in there, but with some gentle pulling you can get to the eyeshadows without damaging the box, The pop up portion is SUPER cute, serisouly a must have if you collect any hello kitty makeup. LOVE this! ❤
Georgio Armani Si Perfume Review!
Hi everyone! 😀 I wanted to review my current all time favorite perfume for you all. It’s the Georgio Armani Si Perfume. I absolutely love this perfume. It’s modern, feminine, floral, has a slight woodsy depth, and has a hint of warm sweetness. I would put it in the same scent family as the Chanel Mademoiselle and the Miss Dior perfumes, which are my other favorites. ‘Si is a tribute to modern femininity, an irresistible combination of grace, strength, and independent spirit. A modern chypre reinvented, Si opens with deep blackcurrant nectar that softly recedes to airy florals. A base of musky blond wood adds lightness while grounding the fragrance for a lingering, distinctive trail.’ Notes: Chypre, Blackcurrant Nectar, Airy Florals, Musky Blond Wood. I purchased mine at Sephora, they offer two sizes. I totally recommend this for the holidays especially in fall/winter. It’s an all around lovely perfume.
Holiday Beauty Gift Guide 2014
Hey gals! Sephora is having their 20% off VIB sale in store and online starting today through the 10th!!

The list: Benefit Cheeky Sweet Pot Box-O-Blushes, Sephora Superstars Set, Urban Decay VICE 3 Palette, Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume, Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonion Clay Blush Set, and the Smashbox Studio Case.
Custom Urban Decay 4 Palette
Hi everyone! ❤ I wanted to share I new item I put together at Sephora. I’ve walked passed the stall so many times because at first I wasn’t crazy about the packaging, but after a took a closer look, I decided to finally go for it. Urban Decay offers a build your own eyeshadow palette + 1 single shadow (Moonflower) for $18. On sale now for $12. The single shadows are $18, and you can pop them out of the packaging and place them in your palette! Overall, I think this is a really cute idea, I just wished the single shadows weren’t so expensive. They are great quality, and totally worth it, but I wish there were pan version for the palettes that were a bit less expensive. The eyeshadows swatch beautifully and look amazing on the eyes! The shades: YDK, Moonflower, Verve and Lost.

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 .
My Little Sephora haul! <3
(Sorry for the lighting, I was using my crappy camera at night) Woo! I got Sephora order in the mail! I decided to take a peek into the sale page and saw a few goodies that looked worthy of a try! Sephora brand makeup has been one of those things where I do occasionally find a great item! I do actually like most of the in house products and brushes so I decided to give some palettes a try. The Too Faced Mascara and Melted Lip Lacquer I got with my points! Yay! ❤ I got the Sephora It Palette in Color Spectrum $19 and the Sephora Moon Baked Eyeshadow Palette in In The Tropics $15. The moon baked palette was really shimmery/glittery but performed well when applied wet or with a base. The It palettes I really like, it comes with 12 eyeshadows, a dual brush and an eyeliner. The shadows are smooth and pigmented and I really like the fabric chevron case!
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Punjab
Hi everyone! ❤ 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!
Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black Perfume Review
Oooooh, perfume, another vice of mine of course. This is the Elizabeth & James Nirvana Back Rollerball Perfume that I got with my Sephora points! The brand was created with the Olsen twins and I would say this scent is sensual, warm, sophisticated, and edgy. ‘Nirvana Black is a woody fragrance, dark and somewhat masculine although intended for both genders.‘ Notes: Violet, Sandalwood, Vanilla. There is a definite masculine tone, but not overbearing at all. They also have a white version but I felt that one was way too floral. I absolutely love scents like these, highly recommend trying this out the next time you are in a Sephora!
Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow Review
Hi everyone! I recently hauled these awesome new Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadows from Sephora the other week. They are seriously gorgeous and good for your skin! ‘An innovative, bi-phase, liquid eye shadow formulated with coconut water for more hydrated, healthier-looking lids.’ They are little glass vials with a combo of pigments and liquids that you shake when you apply. You can wear these sheer built up. You do have to wait for them to set on the lids before you do anything or they will crease. They last a really long time and can wear them as a base. Really love these for everyday, and love that they condition the skin!
