I’m not one for super glossy lips (matte for me all day everyday thank you) but as a beauty blogger you’ve got to be willing to experiment and step out of your comfort zone often. So when I received the NYX Intense Butter Lip Gloss at the Lulu’s NYFW party I was hesitant but intrigued. I was worried it would be “super glossy”, a look that can be too much on my already full lips. However I decided to give one a whirl before heading out to a fashion show Tuesday morning.
Price: $5.99 NYX has a reputation of having quality products at prices that are cheaper than high end products.
Product Description: Like most lip glosses (more…)
Finally…Fall is nearly here! The best season of the year is back with a bang with the same annual (but amazing) dark lips and vampy eyes, but joining them are trends from flushed cheeks to bronze eyeshadows. Check out these trends that hit the latest New York Fashion Week.
For the Tome SS16 collection the models sported a classic nail with a modern twist. The look, named the “tricksy French manicure” was achieved by using the Zoya naked manicure collection. Zoya lead nail technician designed a look to give the affect of the models having naturally silver tipped fingers.

Recently I’ve been obsessed with better skin care and using facial masks. I’ve always struggled with trying to get rid of blackheads so when I came across the Blackhead Erasing Cleansing Mask I decided to give it a try (sounded promising and the price was right!)
September means the start of sweater weather, leather boots, and pumpkin spice everything. Although dark lipstick is all the rage during the Fall, during the day you can’t exactly show up to work with a full face of deep vampy lipstick. Instead why not try my simple signature everyday natural makeup look.
Nars is like that one kid everyone at recess wants on their team.. a star in the makeup game. Most of their products can be a bit on the pricey side but they are usually well worth it. Although I don’t own many of their products (nyc rent prices has a way of keeping my shopping habits in check) the ones that I do have are amazing! Nars recently came out with a new mascara as part of their “audacious” collection. Francois Nars, founder was quoted as saying about the collection “I like audacious things.. to me if your not audacious then you’re boring. Boring is not in my language.”
Price: $26 available at Sephora, Nars and Nordstrom
Product Description: The mascara comes in the classic matte black Nars packaging that’s become some what of a trademark for the brand. The audacious mascara has a special applicator brush that’s (more…)
Fall! My favorite season. Nothing compares to the smell of apple cider, the sound of a crackling wood fire, and the feel of a cool, frosty morning. OH, and of course the fashion/makeup aspect of the season, too. 😉 I’m here to share my top favorite nail polishes for this fall. Whether you’re rocking your manicure at a bonfire, while raking leafs, or scarfing down some pumpkin pie this fall, you’re sure to get compliments!
Living in the “Chipotle age” we’ve all grown accustomed to having things customized to be exactly how we like them. Luckily beauty products are starting to pick up on this. We’ve already been making our own perfect foundation with custom color drops and now the same is true for facial cleansers.
Powder cleansers have quietly been making their way on the scene for some time and it looks like their here to stay. These formulas start of as fine powder and transform into a liquid consistency once water is added. While I’m not one to follow every trend, this is actually one that I’m all for.
Easy to apply lip products are on every girl’s must have for summer and now OCC just provided another option. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) has had makeup wearers obsessed with their signature lip tars for years and now they’re even easier to love. Instead of their former tube style packaging, the lip tars now come in cylindrical tubes with a doe foot applicator for precise application. OCC launched their new user friendly packaging appropriately named “RTW” which stands for Ready to Wear. (more…)
