Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick: My New Holy Grail Lip Product

Put down the lipstick! Drop the balm! Don’t touch the lip tint! Run don’t walk to your nearest makeup retailer, you have to try this! I may be a little late to this party, but better late than never am I right!? I picked up 2 of the Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipsticks during the November Sephora Sale, and while I was excited to try them, I had no idea they would quickly replace all my other lippies. In Demand and Stepping Out were my picks, because I’m a sucker for a good nude…

Boudoir, Body Confidence and Homebody Photo

The relationship I have with myself has always been a complicated one. I’m an over thinker, a people pleaser, a plan ahead-er, and I hold myself to standards that are usually unattainable. You can imagine the impact these self-proclaimed traits have had on my physical self-perception. It’s been a life-long, up hill battle to truly love myself, my body, and the reflection that looks back at me from the mirror.

Sephora VIB Sale Picks and Recent Purchase Reviews

I remember the day the Sephora employee handed me my shiny, ruby red card. I was both slightly embarrassed, and weirdly proud: I was a VIB Rouge!

My Flawless Foundation Routine

I’m going to try and keep this introduction short and sweet, so I can get to the good stuff! (Because I’m telling you, I’ve got a flawless, fool proof routine you have to know about) I’ve been fascinated by makeup for as long as I can remember. I would watch my mom apply colored shadows to her lids, and swipe creamy lipsticks across her mouth, and I was just hooked. Blush, and lipstick, and trying new eye shadow looks used to be my favorite parts of my makeup routine, but recently it…

Sephora Haul: March 2017

This week I found myself at my makeup shopping Mecca: Sephora. I had 2 gift cards, was already planning to be at the mall, and I was running low on some face products. It was a perfect storm! Of course, promising myself I would only buy what I needed led to talking myself into buying 3 new products, but I mean…I had gift cards! (I have a problem!) Anyways, I wanted to share what I picked up, in case any of my fellow makeup addicts were interested! Re-purchases (What I actually went for): Kat Von D Lock…
