Review: NYC New York Color Liquid Lip Shine

Review: NYC New York Color Liquid Lip Shine

I’m sure all of us makeup junkies have tried an NYC product at least once in our lives, right? It’s one of the most affordable cosmetic lines at your local drugstore. And most of the time, their products are very comparable to some high-end lines. I can count at least 10 of my friends who swear by NYC Sunny Bronzer (you probably can too!).

Laura Geller All-Stars Collection

Laura Geller All-Stars Collection

Guess who picked up another makeup collection on QVC? Yeah.. this girl. It’s becoming a problem honestly lol. But to be fair, I did need to get a Balance N’ Brighten foundation in Fair, because the only shade I currently have is Porcelain and it’s waaaay to white for me nowadays. I guess I’m not the same pasty chick that I used to be ;) Plus, it’s just plain hard to turn down a Laura Geller collection under $50.

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

This was my first time trying out anything from the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics line. I have been dabbling back into the mineral makeup scene quite a bit lately, so I was excited to try an established mineral brand that was new to me. I’ve seen Youngblood products around youtube and a few of my friends rave about their foundations. Pretty sure I’ve also seen them mentioned in a few of my Allure mags.

Beauty Storage & Makeup Collection!

Beauty Storage & Makeup Collection!

When I first moved into my house, I really struggled with storage options for my beauty products. I’m still not completely satisfied with what I’ve come up with, but it works for now. I converted the 10ft long shelf of my closet into my very own “Beauty Buffet” lol. I’ve setup four beauty stations: Skin, Hair, Makeup, Lotions/Perfumes. Eventually I will buy one of those tall multi-drawer units, but for now, this is what I’m working with.

Review & Swatches: Josie Maran Natural Beauty 6-piece Argan Oil Collection

I’ve admitted this in previous posts, but I’m a hardcore QVC Today’s Special Value junkie. Whenever there is a beauty-related TSV up for grabs, I’m all over that ish. I was super excited to pick up this Josie Maran TSV because I’ve never tried any of her products and this collection had a bunch of Argan Oil-packed goodies to play with.

Review and Swatches: Laura Geller Vanilla Nudes Baked Collection

I lovvvve me some QVC. I can hardley ever turn down a Today’s Special Value when it’s a Laura Geller collection. I adore her products! However, I’m super duper fair and Laura’s Balance-N-Brighten shade in “fair” was just too dark for me. So I was completely thrilled to pickup this Vanilla Nudes Collection which features Laura’s fabulous brand new Balance-N-Brighten Foundation shade.. PORCELAIN!

Review: Covergirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara

I have been seeing this mascara getting reviewed all around the beauty blogosphere. So when I saw it on sale at CVS today ($5.58!) I nabbed a couple. One for myself and one for a future giveaway (keep your eyes peeled). This mascara claims to add volume AND length. Let’s see, shall we?
