Happy National Lipstick Day!!!!

29 Jul

Today is National Lipstick Day!!!!! Woooohooooo! A day to celebrate lipstick and all its glory! If you’re a lipstick loving girly girl Bravo to you, but I’m writing this post to encourage the NON lipstick wearing segment of the population to go out and BUY A LIPSTICK, even if it’s a nude! Go on! Treat yourself- if you’re feeling frisky buy a peach, red or pink! Do it C’mon! You can always count on lipstick to brighten up your entire look instantly.



If you follow me on Instagram, you”l see that I wore one of my favorite pinks by Mac called Girl about town. It’s pretty much the only pink I wear year round!  What lipstick will you wear today?


Marc Jacobs Beauty…Full Collection Available In Less Than 72 Hours!

6 Aug

A while back I did a post on the upcoming Marc Jacobs Beauty collection and the growing anticipation throughout the beauty industry and amongst makeup junkies alike.  Well, I’m back with an update of sorts!  The time has come people….in three days we can all get our hands on the entire 120 piece makeup collection that Jacobs has created and that will be sold exclusively at Sephora and select Marc Jacobs stores!!!!!  Jacobs has left no stone unturned with his debut brand. There will be products for eyes, lips and face including brushes!

Last month, Jacobs gave us a glimpse of what was to come when he released a sneak peek prelaunch of five products in sleek packaging on sephora.com.  Most items have since sold out and the reviews are amazing!

One product keeps coming up time and time again! I haven’t stopped hearing great things about his liquid eyeliner calligraphy style “pen” called the Magic Marc’er. Priced at $30 rumor has it, it’s worth every penny and unlike any other eyeliner on the market. The intense blacker than black formula dubbed Blaquer is waterproof, non- fading, non-transfering and provides a precise line everytime! The reviews speak for the product!  The collection debuts August 9!!!!!! Who else is excited!????!!!!

Lancome’s Latest Collaboration Lives Up To The Hype!

23 Jun

Paris fashion house Lanvin’s creative director Alber Elbaz has teamed up with lancome on a 9 piece collection that’s all about the eyes!  When this collaboration was announced earlier this year, makeup lovers went into a panic of sorts, just waiting to get their hands on the collection!  Months later, I’ve been able to try  these products and let me just say that they live up to the hype, namely the 4 eyeshadow palettes.  These palettes have such pretty hues and the color payoff is amazingly, pigment for days!  My favorite is the mint Jolie( a palette of gorgeous greens).  Also in the collection are false lashes and mascara as well.  The great news is the colors are here to stay although the special edition packaging is not, so if you’re a package junky, you may want to get your hands on this collection ASAP. Available Now at Lancome.

Fabulous Friday Finds- Beauty Edition ( nothing over $20)

8 Mar

Happy Friday Fashionistas!!!!!! Today’s FFF post is all about beauty and includes my favorite products that are $20 or less.  While I do have my pricier items that I can’t live without, most of my favorite beauty products are affordable and I’m going to share them with you today!  These products are available at your local Ulta beauty store or drugstores like Target, Rite Aid and CVS.  Happy shopping.

NYX Matte Bronzer $9

I love this product and use it to contour and add glow without shimmer!

matte bronzer

Aquaphor $4

This “vaseline like” stuff repairs most any dry skin including lips, cuticles, elbows, knees etc.  I use it on my lips every night before bed.


NYX matte lip cream $6

This is my go to lip color most days of the week, it’s matte and stains the lips perfectly without being sticky or drying out my lips.

Milani Crystal lipgloss $4

When I want slight shine, this lip gloss is perfect.  I usually take it out with me, it’s so tiny and fits in any clutch. My favorite color is whisper- a nice peachy pink.


Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 70. $10       Remember……you only get 1 face!  Protect it!!!!!

SPF 70 is what I use on my face every day whether or not I wear makeup it’s just a part of my daily routine.  I did however have a hard time finding sunscreen that I liked for my face because I have sensitive skin that breaks out easily with new products or greasy lotions.  This formula is very light and NOT STICKY!


Maybelline Falsies Mascara $7

This is my favorite mascara of all time (although clump crusher is close second now). I put 2 coats on my upper lashes and 1 coat on my lower and I’m good to go.  I don’t wear false lashes so this product is my “falsies”.


Urban Decay Primer Potion- eyeshadow primer $20

I don’t even attempt to wear eyeshadow without this miracle product!  It keeps my eye shadow crease free for hours upon hours and helps the color ‘pop’ as well!  I have tried all the primers on the market and this is by far my favorite, it’s the only one that works for me.


NYC Brow Kit $4

This is my favorite brow kit not only because it works great, but the price is incredible!!!!! I’m kind of obsessed with beautiful thick eyebrows and this kit helps me maintain mine!  I have never been a fan of eye brow pencils because in my experiences they always leave room for error- and by error I mean a drawn on clown eyebrow look- which is so not for me.  I’ve always preferred brush on powder and wax kits because they give a more natural look while still filling in brows flawlessly!  So if you want thick bold brows or just need a little help filling in, this product won’t let you down!
