Tartelette eye shadow palette | Mally eyeliner { color: Gunmetal + Enchanted Violet } | Shiseido eyebrow pencil { natural black } | NARS matte lip pencil { Paimpol }| essie nail polish { east hampton cottage }| Borghese eye treatment

I bought these products just this week. I’ve tried a few products so far (the eye cream, matte lip pencil + nail polish), I’m excited to try the rest! I’ll let you know how it goes with a follow-up post…

Tartelette Amazonian clay matte paletteTartletteThe Amazonian clay matte palette was created for all the devoted ‘Tartelettes’ out there. Inspired by the many types of women who proudly wear Tarte products: the ‘fashionistas,’ the ‘super moms’ and ‘free spirits,’ just to name a few of the beautiful matte shades in this palette.

All 12 new matte shades are infused with Amazonian clay. Which means, this formula is actually hydrating + good for your skin. This palette was also designed so that you can use each row, from left to right, as an eye look — From your base color, lid, crease and liner. Or have fun with it and mix it up! I love a little sparkle like many girls do, but how pretty are these universal matte colors?! Every girl needs good (and good-for-you) matte shadows!

Mally Evercolor waterproof liner

I already own two of these liners + love them! When I saw they were offered at an Event Price on QVC – I had to get more!

Shiseido eyebrow pencil

I’m always willing to try a new brow pencil. What I need is to lightly fill in my brow, naturally. It’s SO IMPORTANT to fill them in ladies! No matter if yours are thin or thick – ya just gotta complete your face! This one seems like it could be good one for me…?

NARS matte lip pencil

I’m a fan of NARS lip products. I’ve never tried their lip pencils though, but when I saw this pretty color { paimpol } I thought I’d give it a shot! This lilac-pink shade will transition great into spring and summer too.

Essie nail polish

I love white nail polish. And after all the fun reds and festive colors I was using over the holidays, I was ready to tone it down a bit this week. This one happens to a pinky-white shade with a subtle shimmer. ♥

Borghese skin care products are available exclusively at Target, as part of their luxury line. Thought I’d give this a try. It’s affordable + this line has great reviews online.

What’s in my cosmetic case?

January 08, 2015

I’m constantly changing my cosmetic case and what’s in it. Currently, this is what I have inside…

Cosmetic Case

Petals and Pumps

Cosmetic case:  “In Case of Emergency, Put Mascara on Yourself Before Helping Others.” I received this case from a dear friend of mine, and it’s special to me! It fits a lot (as you can see) and it’s just so cute!

Business Cards:  Yes, there are business cards in my cosmetic case! I have business cards stashed in every handbag, clutch, diaper bag and cosmetic case I have…You never know when an opportunity arises. Gotta be prepared.

Lip balm:  Eos lip balm is a MUST! I can’t help myself. And neither can my son Liam, who’s 2. When he finds the colorful egg-shaped balm, he can’t keep his little hands off of it. The lip balm is moisturizing, natural, fruity + smells good.

{ that little hand in my shot, going for the Eos lip balm! :) }

Travel size cream:  There’s always some kind of travel cream in my bag. I wash my hands a billion times a day, and this ‘Ultra Repair Cream’ is perfect for nourishing my hands throughout the day.

Mally Beauty Evercolor Eye Liner:  I had given up on eyeliner until this one came into my life! The colors are beautiful. They are so creamy + easy to apply. They are truly bulletproof. And I’m starting to hoard these! » shown in “Lucky Penny.”

Amazonian Clay Blush:  Tarte is one of my favorite brands. And in my opinion, they have the best blush. This brand is built upon offering non-toxic, eco-friendly beauty products, that deliver! » shown in “Blissful.”

Chubby Shadow Stick:  Because you never know when you need a little touch-up! This one is neutral + has a little sparkle. So I can pop it on my lids anytime. » shown is “Bountiful Beige.”

Butter Gloss:  This lip gloss has been all over my instagram. It’s one of my new favorites, and is part of my December Beauty Round Up Series » see post here. » shown in “I Believe.”

Highlighter:  Obsessed with a couple of highlighters…this is one of them! This is what I love about it:  It’s soft glow, creamy texture + beautiful “dewy” appearance to the skin.

Marc Jacobs Spray Pen:  The perfect fragrance + size to pop into your bag. Because who doesn’t need an extra spray throughout the day?! ‘Daisy Eau So Fresh,’ is flirty, fruity, fresh + a little musky all at the same time. One of my faves!

Sample Size Mascara:  Admittedly, this is not my favorite mascara. But I keep little ones like this handy for touch-ups, or in case I left my house without mascara on. I hate when that happens.

Naked Lip gloss:  This is my first and only lip gloss by urban decay. But it won’t be my last! I really like the color + the way it looks and feels on my lips. It’s conditioning, long-wear formula is great. » shown in “Sesso.” a shimmery-rose shade. Part of the “On The Run” palette.

What’s all the Fuss About Argan Oil?

April 24, 2012

Argan Oil is extracted from a seed of the Argan tree, native to Morocco. This is an all natural, organic & chemical-free oil that can be used from head to toe, literally! Argan Oil, is high in vitamin C and essential fatty acids, light-weight, fast absorbing and non-greasy. Perrrrfect!

This powerhouse beauty product is great for:
Dry Skin & Cuticles
Healing Acne & Scars
Minimizing Fine Lines
Split Ends & Fly-Aways
ATTENTION: Moms-to-be…It can even be used during pregnancy to reduce the appearance of stretch marks! And on those precious baby bum’s too.

Told ya, it was a powerhouse beauty product, right?!

I first heard about this product from Supermodel, Josie Maran, while I was watching QVC.com (my trusty source for all things beauty). Then, I think, all the Argan Oil hype started. I see products and information about Argan Oil all over the place now. Maran, started her own cosmetic line called, Josie Maran Cosmetics. I really trust in Josie’s products & I really appreciate that everything she carries is made with Argan Oil and is natural, organic, and comes STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE! And with this product below, is how it all started…


 

This is an amazeing multi-tasking beauty product!
