Happy New Year! Another year in beauty has come and gone. It’s now time to take stock and reflect on the past year. This year has been full of amazing product launches and releases, and I will be saving my top beauty favorites in skincare and beauty for another post. Today I want to share my top 5 beauty resolutions for 2017. I originally thought of at least 10, but narrowed it down to five, because I know I need to keep it attainable and realistic.
Tis the season for Holiday Lips! Today I’m compiling a list of some luxury beauty holiday lipsticks I recently picked up. I was really impressed this year with the limited edition releases and the limited edition packaging that came along with these releases as well. I’m a huge sucker for packaging. It gets me almost everytime! Today I will be sharing swatches of these beauties for your reference. There’s some red, some nude shades, and even a deeper and bold holiday hue that you can find in Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Bad Behavior. Scroll below for details and swatches.
Today I wanted to share a few beauty discoveries I recently I had the opportunity to test out. These items are from the beauty categories of: fragrance, skincare, makeup and beauty tools and today I’m here to share with you my experience with each product as well as my recommendations. There were some products that I absolutely fell in love with! Kindly scroll below for details.
Another holiday launch that I picked up during early holiday access from the Beauty Insider Appreciation event is Stila’s Starlight, Starbright Highlighting Palette. It’s a limited edition palette that houses a trio of three shades to illuminate and enhance the skin.
The entire Jouer Fall Collection is now available online. A couple of weeks ago, I shared a preview of four new lip creme shades and today I will be sharing an overview of the entire Jouer Fall Collection, complete with swatches. There are are total of 10 new shades of their popular Long Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipsticks, along with three new powder highlighters, and a stunning new lip topper.

The palettes are exclusively available at Muse Beauty Pro and retail for $80 each for 0.84 oz.
Christian Louboutin’s latest beauty creation draws inspiration from his long-standing love affair with lacquer. Introducing Loubilaque ($85), a high coverage, highly pigmented lip lacquer that combines intense color and shine in a liquid formula. There are eight shades available ranging from nudes to brights including the brand’s iconic Rouge Louboutin. I was very pleased with my purchase of the Louboutin Rouge Louboutin Lipsticks in the matte and silky stain formula, reviewed here, and picked up a total of three Loubilaque shades that I will be sharing with you today.
One way to combat complexion concerns is the use of concealers or color correctors. Enter in Marc Jacobs Beauty Covert Sticks*, a set of three marbleized hues to treat, conceal, and target skin imperfections such as redness, dullness, and hyperpigmentation.
Alas, the end of June has arrived. I know this sounds so cliche, but this month really flew by quickly, maybe a little too quickly. The arrival of summer to me means bronzed skin and a luminous, glowing complexion and my beauty favorites this month certainly reflects that. Here’s a round up of the products I really loved this month.
Benefit Cosmetics recently got a huge makeover of their brow collection, boasting a total of 9 new or relaunched brow products. During an exclusive one day pre-launch on Sephora’s website for VIB Rouge members, I picked up the KA Brow! Cream Gel Eyebrow Color in #3, Medium.
I have been a fan of Viseart products since my first introduction to their line about a year ago. I have two of their 12 pan palettes in Neutral Matte and Dark Matte and these shadows do not disappoint. Effortlessly wearable, and exceptionally pigmented, I have found them to perform quite well. Upon visiting The Makeup Show last month in LA, I had the opportunity to swatch and play with the new Theory Palettes that recently launched and today I have the Viseart Theory Palette 02 in Minx to share with you. Kindly scroll below for more details.
Although it is not yet officially Spring, Summer 2016 makeup releases are now surfacing. Too Faced will be launching their Summer 2016 collection on March 17th, which includes their highly anticipated Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette, the Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush and Sweethearts Bronzer along with a new waterproof version of their best selling Better than Sex mascara. In addition to these items, Too Faced recently launched their La Matte Color Drenched lipsticks; available in 10 shade selections, and picked up three of them to share with you today.
Hello Everyone! Generation Beauty LA recently wrapped in late January. I am so glad that I was able attend this year. If you aren’t aware of #GenBeauty, it is a unique event that brings together the leading online beauty, fashion an lifestyle gurus for a weekend of meet and greets, networking and fun. In addition to that, you get the opportunity to receive goods from sponsored brands in a delightful confection of products ranging from makeup, skincare and hair care.

Recently, I switched up my night time skincare regimen to include the method of double cleansing, using products from Kaplan MD’s Double Cleansing Kit. What is Double cleansing? It is two step process and a way to thoroughly cleanse the skin. By purifying the surface of the skin, it allows you to unclog pores and get rid of any residue left behind. When skin is properly cleansed and detoxified, it leaves a layer of fresh, young skin cells that is ready to absorb the nutrients from moisturizers and serums that follow. I have been putting the items to the test for the past few weeks now and I have some thoughts and first impressions to share with you today.
