I’m going, to be honest with you, the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette was in my Ulta cart when it came out and right before I purchased it, I received this in my mailbox. I was NOT expecting Urban Decay to send me a PR package of their Naked Heat Collection. I literally screamed like a little girl when I opened the package. Of course, I had to play around with this palette for a while before sharing my input on this palette because there have been SO MANY mixed reviews out there but I wanted to share my opinion.
This post has been a long time coming. I received the Soiree Diaries palette from PUR Cosmetics a few weeks ago and I was extremely in love the packaging. I mean how cute is this marble packaging with the rose gold lettering. Two of my favorite things. Besides the packaging being so pretty, so are the colors inside. I’m a huge fan of dark and warm tone shades. And that’s what this palette has.
As a mom and full-time blogger, things can get hectic throughout the day. Especially during the times, my kids are in school. I’ve talked about how important it is for me (or any parent) to spend time for themselves before. It’s seriously the best way to recharge, unwind, and keep your sanity. I love sharing with you ways how I do me time as a mom because there are so many things you can do but the following are my favorite ways to have a moment for me.
Do you guys remember a while back when I was sent the HAIRFINITY products? Well, when I got my first package from them I was so curious to see if these products truly helped with reducing hair breakage and strengthening your hair. Let me tell you something first, I don’t promote anything that I don’t think actually works and with these types of products that claim to do something, it’s really hard to prove to someone that it can because products may or may not work for you.
A few weeks ago I had received the Colorescience Beauty On The Go palette. I was so starstruck by the colors of the shades in the palette but even more surprised by how versatile this palette is. I’ve never tried mineral formula products before, especially eyeshadows. I’ve used a few Colorescience products such as their bronze primer, whipped mineral sunscreen, sunforgettable brush on sunscreen, and tint du Soleil whipped sunscreen. What I love about Colorescience is that their products are meant to protect our skin from the sun’s UV rays.

I have wavy thick hair, so when it comes to straightening my hair I like to make sure I use tools and products that help with straightening my hair fast and easy. Now that I have short hair, it makes things a lot easier for me. I’ve always used flat irons to straighten my hair but when I saw the HerStyler Straight Brush Pro, I knew I had to try it out. I’ve always been curious to see how good these straightening brushes worked.
A few weeks ago I bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette because EVERYONE was raving about it. And let me tell you, I know why. This palette has been my go-to palette for everyday looks because of the warm tone colors. These colors are so pigmented. I’ve used almost every color in this palette in some sort of way and no fall outs, which is a YAY in my book because I can’t stand when eyeshadows cause fall out.
How many of you wear fake lashes? You guys already know that I do. Well, whenever I do client’s makeup or friends they always ask me how I keep my lashes looking great considering they’re fake lashes. Fake lashes are either cheap or expensive depending on where you get them or brand you get. Because I like to wear falsies, I always make sure that I treat them well and maintain them clean.
This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own. Growing up I never struggled with acne. But once I got pregnant and gave birth to my boys my hormones caused some breakouts on my face. Especially when I started to wear more makeup. When I noticed my skin acting out I knew that I had to get it under control. It’s one thing having acne as a kid but as an adult, it’s not fun. No matter how many times I washed my face, I would still get those occasional breakouts especially when Aunt Flo comes to visit.
How many of you are oily skin gals like myself? When you have oily skin it’s really hard to find makeup products that are going to stay matte on your skin for a few hours. I’ve tried so many products and these are my go-to and holy grails when it comes to primers, foundation, concealers, setting powders and setting spray.
