  • Face Mask? Best secret beauty trick!  
    I want to talk about one of my favorite beauty tricks that while I don’t mind disclosing I don’t really talk about it often and I don’t think many others either know about it or talk about it.  It is my favorite trick for getting that super smooth foundation finish. Most people don’t want to […]
  • 2015 Beauty Favorites
      Foundation: Too Face Born This Way –  If I had to pick just one non-airbrush foundation it would have to be this one.   Concealer: MAC Pro Longwear –  I keep trying to find a replacement for this and it has just stayed my go to for years. Applicator: Beauty Blender – it just […]
  • Le Tote
    One of my favorite You Tubers mentioned this program on a video and I decided to give it a go.  The best way I can describe Le Tote is a Netflix type version for Clothing, kind of a blend between Rent The Runway & Netflix. You pay a monthly subscription and the send you clothing […]

I VERY rarely return products, does that mean I always purchase products that are absolute winners….no.  Most of the time when I buy something that I do not end up keep […]
  • Bite Lip Wipes
    I purchased these little babies fully expecting them to be a little gimmicky but thought it was worth a try.  After buying them I now think these are a must have for anyone the loves to wear bright, bold, or dark lipsticks!!!  I have already made a repurchase just to make sure I do not […]
  • Laura Mercier Undereye Concealer
    I wanted to so badly to have this be my all time favorite concealer that I bought it in two colors (winter & summer). However, my under eye is just way to dry for this concealer.  More than any other I have tried this is a very dry (but liquid/cream) product, which does in theory […]
