Jun/20/2017

This is a sweet mid toned pink with a cool undertone. I love theBalm blushes, the quality is always there. They are finely milled and have great staying power. I wore this blush a lot during this last spring. It goes well with any look, especially if you like to wear cool toned colors. The color was a little brighter than it looks online, so I have to use a lighter hand with it or I will look …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Alba Botanica - Fast Fix for Undereye Circles Vanishing Concealer

May/15/2017

I was surprised by how much I like this product. AB is not really known for makeup products but I was looking for something to combat dark circles and came across this. It actually acts as a color correcting concealer. It has a very yellow undertone but the consistency is thin enough that it blends out and counteracts under eye dark circles. I also feel like it has some anti inflammatory …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Lost My Bikini in Molokini

Apr/27/2017

This is just a great mid toned purple cream. I have been searching for a purple cream that is not too warm or cool leaning - this one fits the bill. It actually has a slightly dusty quality, like maybe just a drop or two of grey, which I wasn't expecting. But it totally works, and makes the color more unique. For reference, OPI A Grape Fit! is a little brighter but a similar shade and OPI …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Plush Gel lipstick

I purchased this in the color Dime Piece. It is a nice light peachy pink shade which works well with my very pale skin tone. I usually love NYX lip products, in fact they are my favorite drug store brand. This lipstick was just ok for me. First of all, I do like the packaging - it small enough for travel or in a purse. But I paid around $7 which I think is a bit much for a small drug store …Read more

Fragrances - Lavanila - Pure Vanilla

Jan/03/2017

I have wanted to try this fragrance for a long time, and finally bought the roller ball for myself for Christmas. I used to own the Vanilla Coconut from this brand and liked it ok, but it was just a bit too sweet for me. First off, Pure Vanilla is not your classic vanilla scent, despite the name. The ratings of this product reflect that, as the name is a bit misleading. It is not a …Read more

Lips - Burt's Bees - Tinted Lip Balm-Sweet Violet

Dec/28/2016

I've been obsessed with these tinted lip balms for awhile now. On no makeup days (which is the majority of the time) I will slap one of these on my lips for some color along with some sunscreen/moisturizer and call it good. They are so moisturizing and feel really nice on the lips, and give just the right amount of color. They also work well with other lip products (i.e. under lip gloss, or …Read more

Fragrances - Pacifica - Island Vanilla Perfume

Dec/08/2016

I have tried quite a few of the Pacifica fragrances and am a fan of them overall. I have to say that Island Vanilla is my favorite. I wouldn't say that this is a classic vanilla scent though. To me it smells like a caramelized vanilla, pretty sweet but not as sweet as say, Aquolina Pink Sugar. It smells like a caramel sundae in a waffle cone. Basically, it smells delicious (if you love …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Kerry Blossom

This is a very pretty plum polish from the OPI Washington DC collection (Fall 2016). It stood out to me among the colors in the collection. It has a crelly formula which is slightly runny and becomes opaque in 2-3 coats, depending on your application. I really like this polish and don't regret getting it, however it is not the most unique color - I know there are several near-dupes out …Read more

Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - Schmidt's Natural Deodorant - Lavender + Sage

Sep/27/2016

This is deoderant is amazing. I've looked for years for a natural (aluminum free) deoderant that actually works. This works like a regular deoderant for me. I can go at least 24 hours without any odor at all. The only exception is if I am exerting myself physically and sweating a lot more than usual. But even then it works for at least 8-12 hours; I just need to shower by the end of the day …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Vant to Bite my Neck?

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/27/2016

I have a number of deep purple polishes from OPI and this is my favorite one. It is the right balance (imo) of a cool/neutral undertone and it isn't so dark that it pulls black in certain lighting. The formula is a fantastic almost one-coater, opaque and creamy. It also lasts very well on me. For reference, OPI Viking in a Vinter Vonderland is darker and more of a crelly formula, and OPI …Read more
