Beauty Haul

Beauty Haul

Morning, Lovelies! I've done quite a bit of shopping lately and I thought I would give y'all a haul post today on the beauty items that have found their way into my collection lately! I'll report back most likely in my August Favorites on which ones we're outstanding, and I'm excited to try the majority of these while on vacation this week in Cancun, Mexico (don't worry, there will be one vlog at least, maybe two!) Tell me below any of these that you've tried, and your thoughts! Or If you have any recommendations, I would love to hear them!

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor Swatch Video + Review

There has been so much buzz about these little drugstore lippies that I had to see what all the hype was about. While running into walgreens (for one thing, and walking out with 7, as per usual) I spotted a display of these and grabbed two shades, Addiction and Devotion. After testing (and falling in love with) those two, I ran to ULTA for four more, picking more adventurous shades this time, and I was hooked

May Wishlist

May wishlist - Southern New Yorker - Tarte, J.Crew, Mark & Graham, sandlas, espadrilles, waterproof makeup, spring, summer, beach, blazers,

This next month is going to be insane! With finals, a wedding, moving home, starting my summer job, and settling back in, I'm excited to get going! Of course, I'll be hitting the beach (hopefully a lot) this summer, so sandals, a cute beach hat, and tote are a must! (Check out last months wishlist for swimsuits!) Plus, with J.Crew releasing so many gorgeous styles for Spring / Summer, I just have to grab a few! There goes my paycheck!

Sandals & Espadrilles 

Time to paint those toes, (might I suggest Essie's Tarte Deco?) and strap on something pretty! These jeweled sandals from J.Crew Factory and Espadrilles from Nordstrom are perfect for your spring and summer wardrobe!

Anything Mark & Graham

I may have left the south, but my love of monogramming will never die. Mark & Graham has a huge assortment of bags, apparel, accessories, and more that you can custom monogram to your hearts content! This hunter green plaid tote and scarf are too cute! A little wintery, yes, but they have tons of summertime items just waiting for that perfect circle script! 

Everything J.Crew

My love of J.Crew is absolutely no secret. Half of the time, I look like a walking advertisement for them. But this season, they've nailed the spring wardrobe. I mean, NAILED it. On my wish list: Teddie Pants in every color and pattern, an Uptown Tote, that gorgeous yellow off-the-shoulder top, and every shoe and accessory offered. (That may be overdoing it a little....or maybe not) 

Tarte Summer Makeup

Tarte Lights camera splashes waterproof mascara
Tarte waterproof cheek stain

Tarte has long been known for amazing, natural, waterproof makeup, and the release of their Rainforest of the Sea collection could not have come at a better time! Everything is geared towards that easy, flawless summer look that will keep you fresh and dewy without melting off your face in the heat or water! 

What's on your wishlist this month?

Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer

Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer - Southern New Yorker

I can't believe it's taken me this long to give these lipsticks their own post. I picked up my first Clinique Pop Lipstick, Poppy Pop, back in July and fell in love with it. Since then I've collected three more gorgeous shades, and I'm eyeing quite a few more (aka all of them)

Clinique Pop Lip color + primer - Southern New Yorker

Generally with lip products, there is some sort of tradeoff. Matte products have amazing color and staying power, but they are usually very drying on the lips. Hydrating lip products nourish lips, but color payoff is usually not great, and staying power is even worse. But with these Clinique Pop lip colors, you can have your cake and eat it too! (literally, you can eat with these on and they will. not. budge.) They have outstanding color, insane staying power, and they feel amazingly rich and moisturizing on the lips!

The four shades that I've snagged so far have been Love Pop, a gorgeous mauvey-purple, Cola Pop, a striking dark brown-red (right), Punch Pop, a bright fuchsia (left), and Poppy Pop, a fun orangy-red (center). 

Next up on my wishlist: Bare Pop, Fab Pop, and Passion Pop!

 

What shades are you eyeing? Let me know in the comments below!
