P2 Glow Touch Compact Blush Touch of Peony

P2 Glow Touch Compact Blush Touch of Peony

When I was in Germany this summer I picked up two of the P2 Glow Touch Compact Blushes. They had always caught my eye and since P2 tends to change up their product line twice a year I decided to pick up two shades before they were potentially discontinued. Today’s shade is Touch of Peony, probably one of my favorite summer blushes. It may be fall, but I haf to share. Continue reading

Germany Haul (with tons of pictures!)

Germany Hau;

I am back! Or rather I have been back and quite busy. Today I have the first part of my Germany haul, some fun products and some boring products but exciting for me all the same as the German drugstore is where I got my start. Surprisingly I did not buy as much as I thought I would which prompted my boyfriend to ask if I had been taken over by an imposter. Anyway, can’t wait to catch up on everyone’s blog and here we go!

March Favorites

March Faves

Just like my Ipsy bags, I feel that my monthly favorites are inspired one month and tired the next.    This month was tiring and when I am tired and don’t want to think I rely on old, tried and true favorites. Still, there were a few products that stood out and proved themselves to be absolute necessities. Continue reading

Carli Bybel Palette x BH Cosmetics

BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette

Even though I had no clue who Carli Bybel was when this palette launched this fall I quickly fell into the hype. A custom palette from BH Cosmetics, one of my favorite brands, pretty swatches on Instagram, and affordable? I signed up on their waitlist immediately. After months of admiring it in my collection I finally put it to the test and here are my thoughts. Enjoy the swatch porn! Continue reading

My Morning Skincare Routine

morning skincare header

Happy Monday ladies and gents! Today I want to share with you my current skincare routine for mornings to change things up from posting nothing but reviews and reviews. Creating a skincare routine requires time, research, an understanding of your skin, and testing. Thus, after weeks of looking at different routines and slowly incorporating new products I have come up with the following simple morning routine. Later this week I will have my night time routine up as well.

Rave | L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

One year after its launch, or at least since it took over YouTube, the L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation has finally made its way into my makeup bag. And it is never leaving. This is a product that has me kicking myself for not joining the fan club sooner and on the verge of buying a lifetime supply.  Continue reading

Review | Manhattan Supersize False Lash Look Mascara

Manhattan Supersize False Lash Look Mascara

Even though mascara is and has long been my favorite makeup item, I realize I don’t try many of them. When I find one I like I hold on to it until the very last, almost dry, drop. Somehow I picked up this pink tube months ago and I intend to hold onto it until not even the cleverest of internet hacks can prolong its life.  Continue reading

Review | Hikari Lipgloss in Merlot

Hikari Lipgloss Merlot

Let’s talk lipgloss. Let’s take a break from my blush addiction and talk about the Hikari Lipgloss in the shade Merlot, after all it did arrive in my Ipsy bag way back in August. With the weather and the leaves changing, I’ve finally had a chance to wear this lipgloss and make up my mind about it. Continue reading

Review | E.L.F. Studio Blush Palette in Dark

E.L.F. Blush Palette in Dark

Blush is easily one of my favorite makeup items, my recent makeup count will attest to that, as it allows you to instantly change your look with just a swipe. Easier than eyeshadow, admit it. A dark mauve and you look like autumn, a fresh peachy-pink and you feel like spring, a hot pink and you’re ready to conquer Friday night. Hence blush palettes are becoming my go-to and I go to the E.L.F. Blush Palette most, sort of.
