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.

Make sure to follow her on snapchat Jaclynrhill, to see swatches and hear more information about their new collaboration!

Tahoe Born Hair Products Review

Fresh, natural, and unique are the three words that come to mind when I think of Tahoe Born Brand. Hairdresser and cosmetic chemist Nicholaus Augustine has taken hair and skin care products to the next level. Each product is versatile and contains organic ingredients to keep your hair healthy and easy to manage. Below you’ll find a review of some of the products I’ve tried so far.

Calypso Sea Salt + Dry Shampoo:

Talk about volume! I’ve tried many sea salt sprays in the past and most just leave my hair dry and sticky, but Calypso does just the opposite. It smells so fresh and truly gives that “just left the beach” feel. My favorite way to use this product is on damp hair. Just a few sprits and then i’ll scrunch it with my hands to give it some volume and wave. 

Calypso Sea Salt Texture Cream & Cleansing Cream:

These two have the same fresh scent as the Sea Salt + Dry Shampoo and help give my hair some texture and volume. Pair it with the Sea Salt + Dry Shampoo for the perfect hair cocktail. 

Ylang, Shea, Coconut Smoothing Cleanser and Smoothing Oil:

These two products are great for helping me tame this frizz from all this Texas humidity. It helps smooth my hair and prevents me from needing to straighten it some days. 

Sunday Morning Rebalance Cleanser:

The Sunday Morning Cleanser is a definite fave! Normally I’m not a fan of 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioners because they leave my hair feeling dry and super tangled… but not this one! The Sunday Morning Cleanser is perfect for stripping all of the dry shampoo and other hair products left over from a couple days before. It is a tad bit watery compared to most shampoo’s and conditioners, but I don’t mind it. My favorite time to use it is actually on Monday morning’s when I’m running late. Having only one product to wash & rinse saves me a lot of time and it has a citrusy smell to it that’s perfect for waking you up and getting your day started!  I’ve never used a 2 in 1 that makes my hair feel so clean, refreshed, and soft! 

Silk Hydrate Hair + Skin Serum:

Talk about obsessed! I’ve already gone through half of my bottle and I’ve had it less than a month. This product is extremely versatile and can be used on wet or dry hair to help smooth hair, or apply it your skin to help tighten and moisturize. It smells so amazing and unlike anything I’ve ever smelt before. The serum starts off really silky and then dries quickly without feeling sticky or heavy. My favorite time to use it is when I get out of the shower when my skin feels the most dry, or on the ends of my hair while it’s still damp.

Tori Kelly & THIRDSTORY | Unbreakable Smile Tour 2016

tori kelly, unbreakable smile, third story, tour, houston, texas, concert, live, 2016

Last week I got the chance to see one of my favorite artists, Tori Kelly in concert for the second time. I’ve been a huge fan of her since she was posting cover videos on YouTube and singing at small coffee shops in California, so you can only imagine my excitement to be able to see her career grow into what it is now. The last time I saw her was back in 2012, and since then she’s released her first album Unbreakable Smile, opened for Ed Sheehan’s sold out show at Madison Square Garden, and was even nominated for a Grammy. The concert was absolutely amazing and so different from her first show I saw. This time she came fully equipped with a band and a lot more frills than the first show which was basically just her and a guitar.

If you know me at all then you know I love music and finding new artists so I was super stoked about her new opening act called ThirdStory. These guys are pretty much my new obsession! They harmonize like nobody’s business, and have such a unique look and sound. I had never heard of them before her show, and was extremely impressed. I attached a video below of one of their original songs (not sure the name of it though) if you want to check them out. I’m also glad I hit record when I did because after coming home and searching all over YouTube, Google, and iTunes I sadly could not find any of their original music. If you watch/listen and are new fans of ThirdStory, then go Like & Share the video to help give these guys the recognition they deserve! 

ColourPop Lippie Stix | Review & Swatches

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰
LBB – Plum/Wine in a matte finish, created by the blogger LittleBlackBoots.
