It’s happening again my beauties! Jaclyn Hill and Morphe Brushes announced today on social media that they have been working on a brand new eyeshadow palette coming soon in 2017. This palette has been in the works since February 2015 and will contain 35 shadows that Jaclyn helped personally create. Jaclyn mentioned that herself and Linda the owner of Morphe, had a vision to create a palette that had the best pigmentation and the best blendability for an affordable price, which hello what more could we ask for? The palette will include shades suitable for all skin tones, and will contain your neutral shades, cool tones, highlight shades, smokey shades, etc. Their goal was to create a product that had every shadow you need all in one palette.

The Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow palette will be launching on June 21st, 2017 and will retail for $38.
Hey guys, it’s been way too long, but I’m finally back with a new blog post. Through out the years I’ve tried countless skin care products and feel like some did more harm than good, so after years of disappointment and irritated skin I decided to visit a dermatologist. After briefly looking at my skin, she recommended the Oil- Free Acne Wash by Neutrogena and pairing it with the Clarisonic brush. I was kind of surprised and thought how can a drugstore face wash be the answer to my problem, but sure enough she was right! Using the Oil-Free Acne Wash with my Clarisonic feels like a mini facial and gets rid of all the excess makeup left behind even after using makeup remover. The two combined are a match made in heaven! I have combination skin, and sometimes the face wash can be drying (it is oil-free after all), so I like to follow up with the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer. They have several different ones depending on your skin type, but the one for combination skin is perfect at moisturizing my dry spots, without making my t-zone overly dewy! My husband loves the face wash as well, because it’s quick and gets the job done! They have a grapefruit scented one as well, but we prefer the original. Right now Neutrogena is having a Buy 2, Get 1 Free Summer Sale if you’re interested in trying anything! If you have any skin care routines or regimens you’re loving at the moment, please leave them in the comments below 🙂
Say hello to my new obsession! I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about the brand ColourPop lately so I decided to give them a try and they did not disappoint. These Lippie Stix are so amazing and for such a great price of only $5! They have an incredibly large selection of colors online and it took me quite a while to choose. I bought four to start with and decided to get two matte finishes and two satin finishes. The satin finishes are just slightly more moisturizing, which is to be expected. They are both extremely long wearing and super pigmented. I love that they don’t dry out your lips like a lot of long wearing lip products tend to do. I can’t wait to order more, and try out their blushes and eyeshadows next. If you’ve tried any of their products before please leave me a comment letting me know some of your faves!
Fetch – Mid tone Pink in a satin finish, great for spring!
Cookie – Nude/Beige in a matte finish, and the easiest to apply.
Frida – Mid tone Nude/Pink in a satin finish, and my personal favorite 😉
LBB – Plum/Wine in a matte finish, created by the blogger LittleBlackBoots.
One thing I love about the fall and winter months is the bold lip trend. I’ve picked my 5 favorite drugstore lipsticks that I have been wearing non-stop this fall! Below you’ll see swatches and a mini review on each lipstick. Make sure to comment below letting me know what your favorite drugstore lipsticks are 🙂 X Muah!
First up is Cabaret Blend by Milani. This is a deep red-berry color with a cream/satin finish. It’s the most moisturizing formula out of the 5 shown, but also the most difficult to apply because it’s so pigmented. I definitely recommend lining your lips before applying this lipstick.
Now for one of my absolute faves… Alabama by NYX. This is from their Matte collection and what I love most is the velvety formula. It’s everything I want in a matte lipstick; easy to apply, long wearing, and doesn’t dry out my lips. It truly feels like velvet on my lips and they are super pigmented as well. For only $6 I honestly could not ask for more!
Next is Touch of Spice by Maybelline. This one is the newest to my collection and I’ve worn it everyday since I purchased it. This long wearing lipstick is from their Color Sensational Creamy Mattes collection. I love the mauvey-brown color of this lipstick and it’s the creamiest matte formula I have ever used. I’m definitely going to have to go back and get more colors!
The second to last lipstick is Natural by NYX. This is also from their Matte collection and although it’s named Natural it’s much more of a Mauve color and has more pink in it, so it’s great for the day time when you don’t want to go too dark/bold.
Lastly is Bare It All by Wet n’ Wild. This is from their Mega Last Lip Color collection and for under $3 it’s a pretty good lipstick! I love the brownish-nude color of this one, and although you have to apply a few coats/layers, it’s pretty long wearing for the price! I would say this lipstick is in between a matte & cream finish.
There you have it! Happy fall y’all, and don’t forget to let me know what your favorite fall lipsticks are in the comments! 🙂
