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! Ready to see my results??
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a review of Sigma Beauty brushes, but today I am really excited to share with you my thoughts on the Sigma Beauty Ultimate Copper Eye Brush Set! I am a big fan of Sigma Beauty brushes — they’re really nice quality, hold up well with lots of uses and washes, and when you wait for a sale I personally don’t think they’re too expensive. For example, right now you can use code BRUSH30 to get 30% off your order! Score!
It’s no secret that IT Cosmetics is one of my all-time favorite brands. They’re one of the first highend brands I tried out when I started getting into makeup, and they’ve continued to impress me with the quality of their products. A few years ago I shared my Top 10 IT Cosmetics products and that post has continued to get a lot of love and traffic since then, but IT Cosmetics has been releasing a lot of awesome products since I shared those picks. And while all 10 of those products I mentioned are still fantastic…I have discovered new favorites! So I figured it was well overdue to do an updated Top favorites from IT Cosmetics!

Being an avid coffee drinker, I am always dealing with stained teeth. True, if I cut back I would probably not have such a big issue…but no way am I giving up the delicious taste of coffee or the wonderful effects of caffeine! But did you know that you can still enjoy your daily cup of coffee and achieve whiter teeth, naturally, with Tom’s of Maine Luminous White Toothpaste?
You guys know I am a huge fan of IT Cosmetics — not only have I done a Top 10 Favorites from the brand (that I am going to be updating very soon!), but I also love sharing whenever they have a special collection on QVC…like today! This week they unveiled their IT’s Your Top 5 Superstars and More, a 6-piece collection that’s valued at nearly $200! And right now they have it available on sale for under $60! 😮 I’ve tried 4 out of the 6 products, so trust me when I say….this is a deal you want to look hard at!
