Morning Lovelies! Sorry for this super late July Favorites! I took a little week-long break from blogging to just relax, but now I'm back and ready to roll! There have been so many exciting things that I've been using this month, and I CAN'T WAIT to share them!!Read More
Good morning, Lovelies! I apologize for being a tad late on my Birchbox this month, finals is finally over, and I can resume my regular posting schedule. There were several gems in this month's box that I'm excited to share with you!Read More
Spring is in full swing! Or at least that's what I tell myself as I look at the rainy, 37 degree weather outside my window. Well, at least until it clears up, I can dream of swimsuits, beaches, glowy skin, and spring florals! This month's favorites centers around just that!Read More
Good morning, Lovelies! I got to go to a very exciting event this past Saturday, the launch of Glossier's Phase 2 makeup! For anyone who isn't familiar with Glossier, it's a skincare and makeup company started by Emily Weiss from Into The Gloss, which is an amazing blog if you don't already read it! We actually met Emily on our way up to the Glossier penthouse, and she was just as lovely and genuine as she comes across online!Read More
I was ecstatic when I opened this Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise on Christmas morning this year, and ever since then, it has become the perfect bag for everyday and for taking to my internship! Today, I thought I would give a little peek inside and tell y'all what's hiding in this little red gem. Watch the video for a full, unedited version (complete with random papers, metrocards, and way too many lip products) or just keep scrolling for my edited version!Read More
Due to limited space while packing for the holiday break, I had to pair down my makeup collection to just my favorites. Today I thought I would share which one's I picked and why!
This gem was part of my Best Drugstore Foundation Review, and to be honest, it's one of the only foundations that is light enough for my skin tone (I swear, I'm somehow getting paler). Besides that, it has great coverage, a good consistency and it LASTS.
This has been on my face daily for months. I just can't seem to find anything that measures up to it. The shade is beautiful on fair skin and the formula is long lasting and natural looking. These blushes are a cult item for a reason!
Another cult favorite. Every beauty blogger and their mother raves about this budget find. It has great coverage for both redness and those monster zits (we all get them, let's all admit it). The sponge tip is a little odd at first, but I promise you'll love it once you start using it!
Okay, so this one was a Christmas Present, but it's still taking over my makeup bag as my favorite product right now. The highlight shades are beautiful, and the contours are so pretty and natural. Watch out for a review/tutorial in the near future!
I absolutely love this mascara! My lashes are perpetually sticking straight out, but this makes them hold a curl SO much longer. Most people either love it or hate it, but mine is a LOVE.
This mascara is so good, Birchbox has a waiting list for it. (and I'm on it). seriously. I'm actually still trying to scrape the last bits from this sample size, but crossing my fingers that the list opens up soon and I can grab a full size!
At first, I wasn't a huge fan of this liner, I had heard it talked up by so many bloggers, and I was rather disappointed when it smudged right off from my lash curler. I revisited it a little while ago, and I found that if you A) Put it on over eyeshadow and B) Wait a few minutes before curling your lashes (I used to curl them RIGHT after) the liner will have time to set, and this stuff will stay dark and black all day long.
LORAC Skinny Palette in Black
I fell a little guilty putting this one, seeing as it was limited edition and is no longer available, but LORAC has so many similar palettes which are fabulous (I'm eyeing the Pro Mattes palette). LORAC shadows are buttery, pigmented, and long lasting. Some of the best I've ever used!

I'm always amazed every month when I realize how much time has past! I feel like I wrote my July Favorites yesterday!
August has been the month of illuminating skin, fun nails, and eye shadow palettes (I bought two in one month, that's a lot for me!)
I picked this one up at the beginning of August and have loved it ever since!! There's a great mix of matte and shimmer shadows, as well as several different choices for highlight-midtone-contour. I would call this one a pretty good drugstore dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette (which is my holy grail).
Best. Top. Coat. Ever. I've had a long standing addiction to Essie polishes but when It came to base/top coats, I was strictly a Sally Hansen girl. That was up until I grabbed this baby off the drugstore shelf (and never looked back!)
I have to admit, I was never a huge fan of cream or stick blushes until I got this little bit in my Birchbox! The color is gorgeous, it's very blendable as a blush, and SO pretty on the lips! Birchbox has a trio of these in a cute little clutch that I'm dying to pick up!
After a bit of resistance, I decided to jump on the highlight bandwagon. (and boy, am I so glad I did!) I've mixed it with my foundation for a gorgeous glow, and patted it on the very top of my cheekbones for a little added radiance.
HELLO NEW FAVORITE. I saw this pearly pink polish on the shelf and fell in love. It's almost as subtle as a nude, but just that little bit more interesting! I've worn it for about three weeks straight! (sorry, not sorry)
I picked this one up because I had heard several other bloggers raving about it, and I have to say, it lived up to the hype! My only issue is that the lightest color offered is still a tiny bit too dark for me #palegirlprobs
