Stila Cosmetics Vivid & Vibrant Collection

Using-Stila-Cosmetics-Vivid-&-Vibrant-Makeup-Collection-final-look
This Vivid & Vibrant Collection from STILA COSMETICS is a tricky one. A lot of the items are filled with shimmer and glitter so I had to be choosy when it came to what I used for this look and take my time b/c I would have been easy to go overboard!

Click the link below the bottom pic to see what I used to get just the right amount of shimmery glow for this look!

Candy Club Is My Club for Candy

Disclosure: Sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

Checking-out-candy-from-Candy-Club-main
If there’s one thing I love almost as much as makeup, its candy! And what better way to receive it each month via subscription. Personally, I love anything via subscription. The products sent are usually a really great value and the fee is reasonable. That’s why when I heard about Candy Club, it was an easy, “Yes, I want to try it!”

This is how Candy Club works -

  1. Pick Your Plan
  2. Choose Your Candy Preferences
  3. Wait for the Shipment

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer

Charlotte-Tilbury-Magic-Away-Liquid-Concealer
Since my skin is quite dry under my eyes, I’m always on the hunt for a really good concealer that’s not going to sit in my fine lines. When I heard about CHARLOTTE TILBURY Magic Away Liquid Concealer ($32 @ charlottetilbury.com, net-a-porter.com), my ears perked up! She just came out with a new complexion collection and this one comes in 16 shades. Nice!

Ms. Tilbury claims she’s been working on creating a Holy Grail concealer for years and this is her throwing her hat in the ring. Key ingredients inside hers include Persian Silk Tree Extract, which give hers a unique elastic-stretch that’s allows it to hug curves, Palmitoyl Glycine is for anti-aging and the extract of wild indigo, an under eye brightener.

The applicator sponge is also unique. It’s called the Magic Miracle Precision beauty blender (arn’t those last two words trademarked?) and was designed to rollover and hug your skin. And the formula is housed in a click-pen, which I’m not a huge fan of since sometimes I’ve clicked and clicked and the product has never come out! But on the other side, it keeps the liquid bacteria-free. Love that.

So how did this one do? Click below to find out!

NYFW Inspiration from TRESemmé

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

NYFW may sound like it brings a lot of glamour (it does) and totally unwearable hair styles (some are, some are not) to the catwalk but you’d be surprised at how many are totally doable. So about 1 week after the shows are done, I look up some of the styles that were shown. Not only for the clothes but for the hair and makeup that goes with each outfit.

And this season, in partnership with TRESemmé, I’m creating one of the looks that inspired me and using TRESemmé products to do it. Don’t have to twist my arm!

Like makeup, a good base to your hair is important in order to be able to get the best style out of it, so I started with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Marula Oil Shampoo & Conditioner. The newly revamped twosome is now safe for color-treatment strands and is specially designed to fight frizz, detangle knots, boost shine and tame flyaways, all of which are problem now that temps are dropping! These help smooth out my hair, especially if I’m going for a sleek look. And I pick up all these products around the corner at my local CVS

Wet N Wild MegaCushion Foundation

Wet-N-Wild-MegaCushion-Foundation-main
It’s funny how I can buy a product, use it a few times, love it and then forget about it/misplace it. That’s exactly what happened with this WET N WILD MegaCushion Foundation SPF 15 ($8.99 @ walgreens.com, ulta.com target.com). Now cushion foundations are nothing new to the industry and I’ve tried and liked a few of them. I’m not really sure why though! I mean, it’s just liquid foundation in a sponge in an air-tight compact. Or is it?

Score a #PersonalCareWin with Unilever this Season

Dove Men+Care AXE Degree products at Target

I’ve pretty much avoided fall's college football season, but since my boyfriend and I moved in together, my house has become football central on Saturdays! And I must say, I don’t really mind it. Since my SO went to UCLA, the UCLA Bruins are our team. We’ve only gone to a few parties so far this fall but I feel like ours will be the best house parties out of our group of friends. We have a great space to entertain and I just love getting the house all ready for company.

Since I can only take so much viewing of the actual games, I look forward to spending some “me time” by heading over to Target to get my weekly shopping done or I just kick my feet up and shop @ target.com. Yes, girls, take advantage of getting some shopping done! Not only do we get our football food shopping done at Target when it’s our turn to host, but my boyfriend has been super open to me making suggestions in the grooming department.

It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40

It-Cosmetics-Your-Skin-But-Better-CC+-Oil-Free-Matte-SPF40-in-bag
One of my all-time favorite foundations is from the IT COSMETICS brand and it’s their Bye Bye Foundation in Medium. It just melts into my skin and makes my skin look like my skin but better. So as you can imagine, it was hard to move over to testing out their new Your Skin But Better CC+ Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40 ($38/1.08oz @ itcosmetics.com, sephora.com).

Now there are three different versions – the regular one for a natural finish, the CC+ Illumination for a radiant finish and now this matte one.
