Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my April favorites. I am excited that the warm weather is one step closer here in Northern Virginia. As you can see a few of my favorite things have that warm weather in mind.

This month I was on a liquid lip kick and I am so excited about the new additions I have added to my makeup collection. They are definitely going to be a staple for the Summer months.

First off let me tell you about a new brush set collection that I picked up off a random app. I will be doing a full review on these + a giveaway. These brushes are too good to not gift them to one of my readers.

I finally switched up my concealers to something much more friendly to my wallet. Both of these drugstore concealers are the perfect mix to give me that “I slept 9+ hours last night” look. They aren’t drying or overly hydrating where they cause creasing.

I hit pan on my beloved Tarte bronzer and I needed to find a cheaper alternative. I stumbled upon this face powder from Black Radiance and it gives me that beautiful natural bronzy look without breaking the bank. The only down side is that you get so much fall out from this product.

I am obsessed with liquid lipsticks! I have already reviewed the Palladio X Case Holmes collection, which you can check out here. I will be reviewing the Jordana Sweet Cream Matte collection in the next week or so, but all I can say is that it is my new current favorite.

Last but not least it’s this intensive foot mask that was much needed. I don’t really have time to pamper myself, but I try and take at least 20 minutes twice a day to do something nice for myself. This month that has been a foot mask + a face mask simultaneously and a episode of my favorite TV show Cloud Nine.

What are some of your April Beauty Favorites? Anything in particular you suggest me trying out? 

Have a great day and I will see you on Wednesday.

2017 Beauty Favorites

IMG_0266

Happy Monday Everyone!

Happy 2018, I can’t believe that 2017 has come to a close and that we are starting a new year once again. I am excited for the plans I have for this year. I am also excited to see how my makeup routine evolves as this year goes on. In the last 12 months I have fallen in love with red lips, illuminated skin and glittery eye looks. I can honestly tell you that will not be the case come 2018. As humans we tend to switch things up based on where we are in life and how we want to feel.

With that being said here are 17 products I loved in 2017, enjoy!

Overall you can see that I stuck with quite a few things from the high-end side. I want to focus on more drugstore finds this year.

If you have any drugstore recommendations, please leave a comment below.

I hope you all are enjoying your New Year’s Day!

See you all on Wednesday.

Today I am sharing with you a Ulta beauty haul. I decided to take advantage of the fact that I had a $10 coupon + a free birthday gift from Ulta and decided to pick up a few things to test out. Let me know what you want me to review?

The NYX Birthday Palette was my free Birthday gift and I am beyond excited to try this out and create so many Fall looks with this palette. It has the perfect Burgundy/Orange tones.

What beauty items have you treated yourself to lately? Anything you would recommend? 

Have a great Weekend and I will see you on Monday!
