It’s been a while since I’ve done beauty favorites. I wanted to start them back up because, to be honest, I love sharing with you guys which products were my favorite whether I purchased them or received them. Now these products I have here are products I have purchased with the exception of the Sigma Brushes. These products I have been using for more than a month so I can honestly say these are by far my favorite products.
You guys I’m so excited to be sharing with you something I’ve been using since I first received it. About a 2 months ago, I want to say – I received the Kaplan MD Perfect Pout Duo products. I’ve always wanted to get lip injections because I dislike my lips but guess what? I’m afraid of needles (even though I have tattoos). Plus I’ve seen some women get bad reactions to lip fillers and knowing myself because I’m like allergic to a lot of things, I didn’t want to take the risk.
I have another fun collaboration and it’s with my girlfriend Andrea from Glam Hungry Mom. We have been friends for a long time now it seems. Just like me, she also has two little boys and loves all things beauty. So we hit it off great. We wanted to create a makeup look using a palette we haven’t used but that included a pop of color. We both decided to use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made palette.
I’m so excited to be talking to you about a makeup brand that I’ve been testing out for a few weeks now. It’s called Nomad Cosmetics, they are a fairly new makeup brand. It was influenced by three core ideals: exploration for beauty, passion for experiences and desire for authenticity. Each of their shades is named after local landmarks and characteristics of their destinations.
I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not I wanted to write this post but I knew I had to share my thoughts on this topic. A few weeks ago I purchased the Instagram Decoded Guides from InstaReveleaed. I know that some of you have purchased these guides as well and have said so many good things about it, which is why I purchased myself. Now keep in mind this Instagram Decoded Guide(s) was $149.99. I wanted to learn more about how to grow my Instagram.
Today I’m collaborating with Kendra from Citizens of Beauty.We wanted to do 3 different eye looks using the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette. If you’re not sure who she is, well she’s a mom, makeup artist and beauty blogger. I’ve gotten to know Kendra through comment pods and I’m a huge fan of her work. I have, to be honest with you, I got this palette from my dad 2 Christmas ago and I haven’t used this palette as much as I would have loved to, so I’m really happy that we both agreed to use this palette. I’m a huge fan of smokey eye looks.
Back at it again with a skincare review, this time it’s all about rainbow masking. I have been trying these masks from Bonvivant Botanical Memebox for a while now and honestly before I received these I didn’t know what rainbow masking was. If you’re unfamiliar with rainbow masking it’s basically where you can apply 3 different types of masks on your face for different skincare reasons.
You know that saying “New Year, New Me”. Yeah no that’s not me but one thing I do want to change this year is the choices I make when it comes to eating. I have to be honest with you I hate working out because I can’t stand the feeling of sweating BUT that’s all changing this year. New Year, New Routine!
You guys one of my goals this year was to collaborate with many bloggers. Today I’m collaborating with Lindsay from Bourbon, Lipstick and Stilettos. I’ve been friends with Lindsay for a year now and I completely love her blog style and the fact that she’s beauty addict like myself. We wanted to create a makeup look today for you that was all DRUGSTORE! Yes you read that right. It’s an “all drugstore makeup look”.
During the month of festivities I will admit that I was eating a lot of food especially sweets and there were a few times where we had to eat fast food because we were so busy, so my skin decided to break out badly. Like I’m not use to having my skin breakout this bad. We usually don’t eat out because I prefer to cook and my skin definitely didn’t agree with it.
