I know I am VERY late in getting my Best of Beauty 2017 post together…but better late than never, right? I was very picky with the products that I wanted to choose as my best in beauty. These are the makeup products that I’ve been reaching for ever since discovering them and just can’t seem to put down, even though new products are constantly being release. Curious to see why they stood out to me? 🙂
I’ve always been curious about lip plumping devices, but never enough to invest in one. I’ve always liked the size of my lips. Sure, if my top lip was a tad bigger it would be nice — but that’s not typically how lips are naturally. So why did I agree to test out the PMD Kiss Lip Plumping System? Well, just keep on reading to find out! 😉
I’ve always been a fan of the Wet n Wild Color Icon shadows — not only for how affordable they are, but also for the great quality of their shimmers. But I’ve always had to bring in other matte shadows from other palettes to make a complete look…but Wet n Wild has listened to our requests and just REVAMPED their whole Color Icon shadow line to include a few matte shadows in each! Without raising the price, I might add! But…are they still just as good as the old formula? And are the mattes any good? Let’s dive into the details!
Makeup brands collaborating with beauty youtubers has been a big trend lately…and Pixi Beauty decided to join the fun not with just one youtube collaboration…but four! Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know the youtubers before they collaborated with Pixi on these products…I was only familiar with two of the four! 😛 But anyways, were the products in the collab good? That’s what we are talking about today…plus, there is a bonus giveaway at the end! 😉
You guys know I am a self-declared makeup junkie…it’s obvious if you’ve seen any of my makeup declutter videos! But when it comes to being a beauty junkie on the go, I seriously fail at it! I hardly ever touch up my makeup, or remember to bring along a ‘lipstick of the day’ to reapply. Maybe it’s because I’m a mom and I always have a thousand other things on my mind when I am not at home…but to be honest, I was this way before Olivia came along. With all that said, though, there are a handful of things I DO keep — and use regularly — from my purse that I feel like any woman would benefit from having in their purse. Even if you’re not a makeup junkie — so take this list as tips for the more practical makeup addict. 🙂
The buzz surrounding the new formulation and addition of matte shades in Wet n Wild’s popular Color Icon line hit an all-time high when we saw their Rosé in the Air palette. Last year the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette basically revolutionized the beauty community for it’s fantastic formula and warm-toned reds and oranges, so of course everyone immediately saw the similarities between these palettes. And considering the price difference, everyone has been asking….”is it a dupe for Modern Renaissance??” Well, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty!
If you remember back in the middle of October I shared with you all 5 tips to keep in mind before you start using your PMD (Personal MicroDerm) for the first time — I titled it A REAL Beginners Guide to Using Your PMD MicroDerm because I felt like all 5 tips were things I hadn’t expected or wasn’t prepared for when I first started using this tool. So definitely catch up with that post if you haven’t already — but today I’m bringing you 5 benefits that I’ve experienced since I started using this tool. WITH Before/After pictures included!
