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…)
Where has summer gone? It feels like classes were just let out and I’m already seeing back to school shopping commercials! Well, after stocking up on binders, folders, notebooks, pencils, and pens, head on over to the nearest beauty section and get back to school beauty shopping! There’s always a light at the end of the tunnel, right? Here are some of my must know back to school beauty tips. (more…)
Poshmark- Poshmark is an app where you can buy and/or sell fashion/beauty products. It’s great for trying out new products since products for sale are usually always below the face value and lets be real…who doesn’t like that?! I’ve bought a few things on Postmark and it was a pleasant experience every time.
Anti-aging and acne are two words you probably don’t expect to see in the same product. Usually when I think of acne I associate it with teenagers but more and more skincare companies are catering to “adult acne”. While I never really struggled with acne (I totally understand if you hate me now) I do have the occasional breakout, even as an adult.
Recently I had one of those rare really bad breakouts. About two weeks ago my face started losing its ish! I woke up with several small pimples and blemishes randomly around my face. Over the next two days I noticed my skin getting worse so I decided to try treatment. Luckily Murad had previously sent me over their anti-aging acne care line. The line has three steps: (more…)
I’m always excited when a drugstore product is on par with a prestige product. I recently got to try out some products from the NEW Skin+ Pharmacy Hydration Collection prior to its launch. As someone still in my twenty’s, I’m more concerned with preventive aging rather than trying to reverse the signs. I think it’s never to early to start taking care of your skin (although I am guilty of sometimes sleeping in my makeup). The line is designed to hydrate the skin while gently and effectively targeting the visible signs of aging.
The products feature hyaluronic acid and oligosaccharides, which is a gentle alternative to retinol. Interested in learning more? Keep reading to see details on each product in the new launch. (more…)
Makeup sponges. Makeup sponges are my holy grail for a flawless makeup application, but we all know how disgusting they can get after a few uses. Covered in flesh colored foundation, highlighting concealer, that little thing can get pretty nasty. (more…)
