ABH Modern Renaissance Look #1: Warmish Orangey Red

I Purchased This Affiliate Links Press Sample

Hey everyone!

I recently got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette (yeah look at me I got on the hype train can I call myself a true beauty blogger now) when I went to the grand opening party at Sephora Century City. 

Given how popular the palette is, I wanted to pretty extensively try it out before reviewing it on the blog. I figured I would share some of the different looks I am able to create from the palette and this is the first one. I'm so into warm orangey red lately so here is the first one I did.

Glossier Balm Dotcom in Original Review

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone! 

Today I have a review of the Glossier Balm Dotcom in Original. For a brand like Glossier, who markets that "effortless my skin is perfect so I don't need to use a lot of product but here's what you can use to get that I'm not trying that hard" vibe, it's not surprising that they have something like the Balm Dotcom in their range. It's marketed as a universal skin salve, something you can use all over for dry skin. They say you can use it on lips, cuticles, or any rough patches.

I'm personally someone who really really loves petroleum jelly based lip balms so even though it's $12.00 for 0.5 oz, I had to try it anyway. I'll also make a comparison of this lip balm to my current favorite lip balm later on in the review.

ULTA Juice Infused Lip Oil in Jojoba + Peach - Review

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review on the ULTA Juice Infused Lip Oil in Jojoba + Peach. These lip oils are an oil-infused gloss, so there's a lot of shine without it feeling greasy on your lips. This type of product also has the benefit of usually lasting much longer on your lips than the traditional lip oil (because it's got some weight).

The Juice Infused Lip Oil comes in six flavors/scents; each one has different added ingredients which are supposed to benefit your lips in different ways. The flavors/scents are:  Cranberry + Pomegranate, Black Raspberry, Jojoba + Peach, Sweet Rose, Coconut, and Green Tea + Avocado. All of the flavors/scents look slightly tinted but they all apply clear on the lips.

A Lipstick for a Good Cause: MAC Viva Glam II Lipstick - Swatch and Review

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone!

Today's post is about the MAC Viva Glam Lipstick in Viva Glam II. I went to the mall to get a few things from Target and of course I walked by MAC and walked out with the lipstick (after paying of course).

Maybe it's a reaction to the constant "must buy now" mentality of limited edition collections coming out each week, but I feel like I've been looking at staple or permanent products from a brand in a new light. I think it's cause it doesn't make me feel that "gotta have it now FOMO" rush so I don't put products up on a pedestal only for it to fail if it doesn't live up to the hype. Don't get me wrong, I will still purchase limited edition collections if they strike my fancy but is anyone else starting to feel this way about many limited collections?
