Red Lipstick

I used to never wear red lipstick, I always kept one in my makeup collection just in case the mood would strike, but the poor lipstick would remain unused in the back of a drawer completely forgotten for months. You might be asking yourself why on earth would I own a red lipstick if I…

New Purchase: Makeup

Along with the many skincare products I purchased this past month I also bought a few makeup products. I bought myself an eyeshadow palette, mascara, setting spray, and received two lip pencils as a gift. I purchased yet another Tom Ford product while at the Cosmetic Company Store this month. I ended up getting the…

My Blush Collection

Blushes are a great way to change up the tone of your look, you can adjust them to the season and even to your mood. I tend to wear brighter shades in the daytime and during the spring/summer months, and darker shades when I go out at night and during the fall/winter months. My blush…

Favorite Lipsticks: Drugstore

I own so many lipsticks. Mostly because I love how much your makeup look changes when you switch up your lip color. I recently wrote about my favorite high end lipsticks (read here), and I thought I would share my favorite affordable lipsticks. I tend to buy drugstore lipsticks when I want to try out…

Favorite Highlighters

For the past few months I have been on a mission to find the best highlighter. I have been obsessed with dewy and highlight heavy makeup looks lately, and have been searching for the best product to maximize my skin’s glow. I find the additional highlight makes your skin look healthy, as though you eat all…

Favorite Lipsticks: High End

New Purchase: Tom Ford

I am in Gatlinburg, TN for the weekend, and whenever I’m in the area I go to the Tanger Outlet Mall. This time around I visited the Cosmetics Company Store and happened upon Tom Ford lipsticks. I swatched various shades and decided on Negligee. Normally Tom Ford Lipsticks retail for $50, but at this outlet store…

Favorite Foundation: Year Round

I have fairly oily and acne prone skin, and whenever I look for a foundation I feel like I’m in an endless search. Because of my oily skin I find it difficult to find a product that doesn’t melt off my face in an hour (especially during the summer) that doesn’t have a matte finish. I find…

New Purchase: Burberry

I have been in search of Burberry shadows (in store) for many months, but unfortunately the various department and Burberry retail stores near me never have them. Until today; I was visiting the Chicago area and happened to stop by the Oakbrook Mall and while walking through Nordstrom I happened to find the Burberry counter,…
