Review: Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Palette

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow palette that I picked up a month or so ago. Sephora now has these "Weekly Wows" deals where products are 50% off. This palette was included on one of those weekly deals. Normally its $45 and I got it for $22.50! It was such an amazing deal that I couldn't pass it up. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on this highlighting/contouring palette and to see swatches!

Review: Stitch Fix Unboxing #17



Hey Guys,

I'm back with another Stitch Fix unboxing! For those of you unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it is a personal styling subscription service. You can learn more about Stitch Fix and see my previous fixes on my Subscription Reviews page.  It's been quite a while so I decided to get another box. I am a Stitch Fix affiliate and they waived our styling fee for the holidays. That means I can try out boxes without having to pay the styling fee. They also waived the styling fee for you guys too! That means you get a complimentary box only for a limited time (fixes scheduled up till 12/25/17). You can try Stitch Fix for free!  I suggest you take advantage of this offer.  Normally, you have to pay a $20 styling fee. The fee gets applied as a credit towards any items you decide to purchase. However, if you don't purchase anything, the $20 fee stays as is. Check out my video below to see what I got in my box!

Review: Tarte Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette

Hey Guys,
Today I'm finally going to share my thoughts on the Tarte Tarteist Pro Palette that I picked up at Gen Beauty NYC. Several people asked me to review this product. As you guys  know, I'm a huge fan of Tarte products in general. When this palette first came out I didn't feel the urge to buy it. However, after seeing it in person at Gen Beauty I decided to pick it up. Tarte was offering their products at a discount priced and I thought it was a great deal. I have filmed two tutorials using this palette. You can check out the first one HERE. Stay tuned for the second one in the next couple weeks. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on this palette and to see some swatches!

"Take a makeup artist home with this high-performance PRO palette for Instagram-worthy looks powered by healthy ingredients.

Deeply concentrated mineral pigments and a new smart-blend technology give you the best in even, intense payoff in a range of natural artistry, neutral-to-bold shades for all skin tones and skill levels."

Review: ColourPop NKLA x Laura Lee Los Angeles Collection

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share ColourPop's new Laura Lee x NKLA collection! This is the 3rd year that ColourPop has come out with a limited edition item in collab with No Kill LA & Best Friends Animal Society. 100% of the net proceeds are donated to this effort to stop euthanasia in animal shelters. You can see my review of their first shadow for this cause called Puppy Love HERE. Last year they came out with a shadow called Cat Nip. Both shadows as well as this collection are available right now on ColourPop's site! Each year I purchase for this cause since it is so near and dear to my heart. As soon as I found out they were doing it again this year, I knew I was going to get it regardless of what it looked like. I had mixed feelings about this collection. Keep reading to hear my thoughts, see swatches, and see a look that I created. 

ColourPop NKLA x Laura Lee Los Angeles Collection
All of the items in the collection can be purchased on their own or as a bundle. I purchased both the lip bundle and the shadow quad bundle. The super shock shadows are $5.00 each and the lip products are $6.00 each.

Review: Pinkie Swear Clip Paints

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on a new beauty brand, Pinkie Swear Cosmetics! Prior to going to Gen Beauty NYC I had never heard of this brand. At Julia Salvia's Gen Beauty dinner I had the pleasure of meeting the Pinkie Swear team and learning about the brand. Their first beauty products are called Clip Paints. We recieved a gift bag at Julia's dinner and these Clip Paints were included! Keep reading to hear more about Pinkie Swear and their Clip Paints!
Pinkie Swear Clip Paints
Here is a little info about Pinkie Swear taken directly off their site:
"Pinkie Swear is makeup collective for dreamers, magic makers, and misfits. Our products are based on style, not skin tones, so you can pick colors based on what’s real, not what’s “right.”

Review: Derma E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water & Radiance Toner

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on some Derma E products. While I was at Gen Beauty NYC I went over to the Derma E booth and introduced myself since I had worked with them in the past. I got to meet one of the PR reps for the brand and she was super sweet. She gifted me with an influencer goody bag which contained the two products that I will be discussing in this post. For those of you unfamiliar with Derma E, All of their products are natural, cruelty free, and 100% vegan. Derma E is now found at Target, Ulta, Whole Foods, and on their website.  I first discovered Derma E back when I was subscribed to Ipsy. I recieved a jar of the Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub in one one my bags and to this day its one of my favorites. I reviewed a bunch of their other products which you can check out HERE. Keep reading to hear about their Vitamin C Micellar Water and Radiance Toner!
Derma E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water & Radiance Toner

Derma E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water & Radiance Toner
Here is what is said about this product on the Derma E site:
"This refreshing Vitamin C cleansing water dissolves long-lasting makeup and impurities, while improving the appearance of skin’s texture and promoting healthy collagen. Micellar technology gently lifts off dirt without rinsing, while maintaining skin’s proper balance. Anti-aging Probiotics and antioxidant-rich Rooibos help skin to appear brighter and replenished.
We use a stable form of Vitamin C that won’t evaporate or alter before absorbing into your skin, to work better for you, naturally."
Ingredients:
Purified Water, Propanediol (Vegetable Derived), Sorbitan Oleate Decylglucoside Crosspolymer (Plant Derived), Polysorbate 20, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C, Stay-C® 50), Phytic Acid, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide (Vegetable Derived), Polymnia Sonchifolia (Yac√≥n) Root Juice, Maltodextrin, Lactobacillus (Probiotic), Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos) Leaf Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Natural Fragrance Oils.

Previous to this, I have never tried any Micellar Waters before. I was really excited to give this a try. I have been using both this Micellar Water and the Radiance Toner for about 3-4 weeks. For the most part, I have been using them together both AM and PM. However, once or twice a week I switch things up and use other products. When It comes to the Micellar Water, I think its great as an added product to cleanse your face. I wouldn't use this in place of a makeup remover but instead use it AFTER washing off your making and cleansing your face. It will get any extra dirt or makeup that a cleanser or makeup remover has missed. It has a very subtle citrus scent and feels nice on the face. I do feel that my face feels refreshed after using it and I love that it contains anti aging probiotics and antioxidants. I love using this in the AM when I wake up. Because I shower at night, I remove all my makeup, cleanse my face, and do a whole skincare routine before bed. When I wake up in the AM my face isn't DIRTY. Therefore, I just splash some water on my face and use the Micellar Water as a refresher. I also think its great to use after working out.

Tutorial: Fall Inspired Makeup Look

Hey Guys,
This look was supposed to be featured in a Fall look book with some other bloggers but the plans fell through. I would normally do a makeup tutorial video but since I already created this look, took pics, and wrote out a tutorial, you are going to get an old fashioned step by step tutorial this time around!

I wanted to create a look that screams fall. I love warm tones and orange/reds remind me of the leaves changing color in the fall. I decided to use the  MorphexJaclyn Hill Palette because there are tons of colors in this palette that give me inspiration for this look. Another great palette that you could to create a similar look is the Morphe 35O Nature Glow Palette.

Stash Jewelry

Hey Guys, 
Today I'm going to share some products from Stash Jewelry. For those of you unfamiliar with this brand, Stash is a MA based jewelry brand that was created by former boutique owner and jewelry designer, Meredith Fruzzetti. She is the owner of the company and makes all of the items by hand.  I met Meredith back in 2008 when she first opened her boutique. I frequently shopped at her store and was a regular customer. She was always super cheerful and happy to see me visit her store; always making you feel welcome. We chatted often about life in general. That really stuck out to me and made me want to continue to give her my business. It's not everyday you get that type of personalized customer service. While I was sad to see her boutique close, I was super excited to hear that she was starting her own jewelry business. It has been really nice to see her business grow and expand. Not only is Stash Jewelry sold online, but it is also carried at many local salons and boutiques throughout MA, RI, CT, & NH. 

Stash Jewelry

Stash specializes in jewelry made with genuine Swarovski crystals and semi-precious gemstones. All metals and components are 14kt or sterling silver plated. Stash Jewelry includes everything from Swarovski crystal stud earrings (in 2 sizes), bracelets, birthstone jewelry, chokers, and more! All items are nickel-free and come in an assortment of colors.

Many of Stash's necklaces and bracelets can be worn alone or stacked and layered.

OOTD: Leather & Liquor

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share an outfit of the day look from a few weeks ago when I visited Hingham Launch. We went to lunch at Whalberger's which is a burger joint owned by Mark & Donnie Whalberg as well as their brother Paul. The food is great and their alcoholic milkshakes are out of this world. Anyways, Hingham Launch is a shopping area right by the water at the shipyard. I figured it would be a nice place to take pics. It was a bit windy but I think they came out alright. I listed all the items I was wearing below and also found some similar items as well since not every item is still available. A few items were from Primark which is hard to find the exact items online. They have a limited shop site so and its euros so I also found some similar style items elsewhere.

Essence Makeup Favorite Brow & Eye Products*

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my final Essence Makeup favorites post. I will be sharing my favorite eye and brow products from a bunch of goodies that I received from Essence over the past few months. You can check out my favorite lip products HERE and face product HERE. If you want to check out their new Fall/Winter 2017 Collections you can see them HERE and HERE. Keep reading to check out the eye and brow products that were a hit for me!

Essence Makeup Favorite Brow & Eye Products*
I don't know about you but tiny things fascinate me. This kit is super cute but more importantly it is convenient, travel friendly, and is actually a good little brow kit.
Essence Makeup Favorite Brow & Eye Products*
This kit comes with 3 items for grooming your brows. Tweezers for shaping, an angled brow brush for contouring, and a spoolie for sculpting. I think all 3 little tools work very well. The tweezers surprised me especially. They do a great job at grasping on to hairs that allows you to pluck the hairs easily. I have had many full sized tweezers that just can't get a good grip on the hair. I think this kit is great for throwing in your purse for touch ups throughout the day. There have been times I've been in my car in the sunlight and I see a stray hair I need to pluck or an eyebrow that needs to be brushed back in place. Not everyone may like the tiny size. However, they are meant to be travel friendly.

Review: Nyx Luv Out Loud Liquid Lipsticks*

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on the new Nyx Luv Out Loud Liquid Lipsticks. I was so excited when Nyx reached about sending these new lipsticks out for me to try. For those of you that have followed my blog since the very beginning, you might remember that some of my earlier blog posts were reviews of some of their other lip products. I have been a Nyx customer for many years and some of their products are holy grail status for me like my beloved Micro Brow. I couldn't wait to give these a try!

Top 5 Favorite Foundations for Combo/Oily Skin

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my top 5 favorite foundation for combo/oily skin. I have a mix of both drug store and high end brands. The video is a little choppy at times so I apologize for that in advance. I say um WAY too much and need to learn to just stop talking when I am trying to gather my thoughts. I had to edit it out may times which resulted in the choppiness. Regardless, I spent hours editing it so I decided not to delete it. We all learn from our mistakes and hopefully next time I won't have to do as much editing. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy the video!

Essence Makeup Favorite Face Products

Hey Guys,
To continue on with my Essence Makeup favorites, today I am going to share face products. I will be discussing some of my favorite bronzers, highlighters, and blushes. You can check out my favorite lip products post HERE. Keep reading to hear about the face products!

Essence Makeup Favorite Face Products

Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder in Lighter Skin $4.99
Essence Makeup Favorite Face Products
 Here is what is said about this product on the Ulta site:
"For a sun-kissed, natural complexion! The Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder conjures up an irresistible natural-looking tan and has a great mattifying effect at the same time!"
Essence Makeup Favorite Face Products
On to my thoughts:
At first glance, this bronzer is giant! I also love that it is matte. I prefer matte bronzer over shimmers any day. I think it looks more natural. In the swatches above this looks a little on the orange side but on my face it doesn't look orange at all. I use this on  my cheeks and around my forhead and such. I think it will be best for my skin once I am lighter. The darker shade would definitely work better for medium skin tones. That being said, its a for an everyday natural bronze look to warm up your face.

August Favorites

Hey Guys,
I can't believe that the summer is coming to an end. The temperature is starting to get a little cooler and before we know it, Fall will be in full swing. Though I am really sad to see another summer end, I am SUPER excited for Gen Beauty NY at the end of of September. I feel like this is going to be the highlight of 2017 for me. I've never traveled alone so I feel a little sense of independence but more importantly, I get to meet a bunch of wonderful beauty influencers that support me (and vice versa) on a daily basis in our engagement pods. I also extremely excited about the whole Gen Beauty experience itself and the potential to network with brands. I don't want my expectations to be too high as there will be thousands of people there. At the very minimum, I will get to hang out out with a bunch of amazing women and get some free beauty products. I am going to do my very best to try to talk to as many brands as I can but I do understand that there are going to be hundreds of people trying to do the same thing. That being said, lets get into my favorites for this month. As you may have noticed, I have been trying out a ton of Essence Makeup products that they so generously sent to me. I have a bunch that I was especially loving this month. Stay tuned for more reviews of my Essence Favorites. Check out my video below to see what I was loving this month!

OOTD: Summer Lovin' at Plymouth Waterfront


Hey Guys,
As summer comes to an end I wanted to not only get an OOTD post up (since I said I wanted to do these more often and my last one was May) but also wanted to take the time to visit Plymouth. For those of you unfamiliar with Plymouth, it is where the first pilgrims in the Mayflower landed. Plymouth Rock isn't that exciting but its a huge historical site. Plymouth itself is very beautiful and there are tons of great restaurants and shops to visit. They also have Plymouth Bay Winery which is great if you are local and never been. The wines are very unique and fruity tasting. This past weekend they had their yearly Plymouth Waterfront Festival where that had tons of local crafts/small business owners, food trucks and food stands, entertainment, and fun activities for kids. I decided to head to the festival with Colin and met my parents there. 

OOTD: Summer Lovin' at Plymouth WaterfrontIt was a beautiful day and not too hot. I wanted to make sure to get some outfit of the day shots before I started walking around and eating everything in site! Lol Keep scrolling to see the outfit I chose to wear to the festival!

Review: BoxyCharm August 2017

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my BoxyCharm for August! I was super excited when the CEO Yosef announced that we would be getting a Tarte palette in our box. I am part of a group called Boxy Babes on Facebook and the CEO of BoxyCharm frequently comments on there and gives us spoilers for upcoming boxes. Aside from the makeup, one thing I REALLY like about BoxyCharm is their customer service excellence. Also that their CEO truly cares about his customers. I don't know any other company where they have their CEO interacting with customers like that. I think that is really cool. For those of you unfamiliar with BoxyCharm, it is a monthly beauty subscription box. You receive 4-5 FULL SIZED products each month. The subscription is $21.00 a month and usually has a theme. The theme for the month of August was "Beach Please". Keep reading below to hear my thoughts on each product and to check out the featured brand discount codes this month.

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on the new Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Long Wear Foundation. I was lucky enough to receive it for free from Influenster for testing and review purposes. I was also sent a full size of the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder which I am already a huge fan of. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on the foundation!

Review: ColourPop Yes Please Palette

Hey Guys,
Today I am gong to share my thoughts on the ColourPop Yes, Please! Palette. This is ColourPop's first 12 pan palette. It has been selling like hot cakes and it has been restocked 3 times so far. It will be restocked for a 4th time today August 10th at 10 a.m./P.S.T. (1 p.m./E.S.T.). I believe this palette is limited edition and not sure how much longer it will be available. Keep reading to hear my thoughts, see swatches, and a look that I created using this palette!

This palette contains 12 shadows. It includes 8 matte shadows and 4 metallic shadows. The shadow is full of warm orange and gold tones that were inspired by "Golden Hour" as the ColourPop site mentions.
