Yesterday I went to Sephora specifically for a foundation I’ve been wanting to try. Of course, that’s not the only thing I ended up buying – all willpower is gone the minute I step into Sephora (and ULTA and Nordstrom)! I tried.

The Make Up Forever foundation was what originally brought me to the store. Because I’ve been needing a medium coverage foundation, I decided to give it a shot. I’ve heard lots of good things about this brand and this foundation- I’ll let you know how it goes.

Another product I’ve been longing to try is the Hourglass Lighting Powder. It’s used for highlighting the cheekbone and other areas of the face you want to bring out. When I swatched the ‘Dim Light’ in the store, I loved the subtle lit-from-within appearance it gave me. Perfect for my olive complexion. And FYI It has not glitter or shimmer.

When I tested the Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil on my hand yesterday, I really enjoyed how nicely it absorbed into my skin, and best of all, how smooth and dewy my hand looked as well! That’s why I purchased it. I used it once last night and this morning already + it’s incredible so far.

Too Faced Lipstick Swatch

I just couldn’t pass up on these creamy lip colors by Too Faced. The color swatch above does not do these justice! The colors are so pigmented + beautiful. The formula is so creamy + hydrating. I’m going to enjoy playing with these!

This is the Perfect Lips lip liner also by Too Faced. I’ve needed a nude-rose shade liner for a long time to pair with my nude + pink lipsticks.

 

Thanks for reading + have a great weekend!

Beauty Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Beauty Stocking Suffers

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 

Eyes, lips, cheeks, face, body…There’s a little stocking stuffer for every girl in your life » perfect for mom, your besties, or your sister! I personally have tried all but one product above. That’s why I carefully chose these products for the fabulous gals in your life!

1| Benefit’s luminous highlighter:  This is my go-to for adding that soft glow on my face in the evening (date night, parties, dinner). Perfect for this time of the season too with all the festivities going on. Don’t worry, it has no glitter. It just highlights your features with a soft sheen.

2| My favorite eyeliner:  Mally knows how to do eyeliner! If you’ve given up on eyeliner like I did (before trying this one)… WAIT!! This Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner will convert you, honey! Gift this to your besties, they will ♥ you (even more)! This liner IS waterproof BUT, so creamy and easy to apply. And the colors are beautiful!

3| Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blush:  My favorite good-for-your-skin long-lasting blush! I have 5 beautiful clay blushes by Tarte (+ many more products from this line). It truly is long-wearing blush, formulated without any junk + has so many shades to choose from, great for any skin tone. That’s why this is another perfect stocking stuffer!

4| This eyeshadow palette ♥♥♥:  Urban Decay‘s Naked 3 Palette, is every beauty junkies favorite! What’s NOT to love? » it’s UD’s newest Naked palette (all are extremely popular BTW), it has 12 beautiful shades, it’s convenient, it has shimmer, glitter + matte shades – versatile going from day-to-night, + it just wears + looks good on!

5| EOS A Ray of Holiday Sunshine Rachel Roy 3 PK:  Who doesn’t love EOS? The cute spheres feature Rachel Roy’s signature wing design.
Of course, I love that EOS is 100% Natural, USDA-Certified Organic! This limited-edition pack makes a great stocking stuffer… or split them up!

6| Sugar Shine Lip Treatment: Fresh Sugar lip products are amazing! I’ve been a fan of their Sugar Lip Treatment for years! And now there’s Sugar Shine, Sugar Lips ‘big sister,’ as I like to say! She’s high-shine, which makes her perfect for the Holidays!!

7| Essie Winter Mini Nail Polish Collection:  I own 3 colors from this collection. My favorite for the season has to be ‘Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low.’ It’s gold and silver and sparkly! This mini collection is perfect to gift, so she can try them all! » (See ‘Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low’ on my nails here)

8| Winter Dreams Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter Duo (Limited Edition):  If you haven’t tried Josie Maran‘s Argan Oil products, you’re missing out on something truly luxurious! Her whipped body butter is the best organic moisturizer out there. Ultra hydration, non-greasy, + leaves your skin glowing! It is especially great for these winter months. Gift this duo, and she’ll know what I mean! Purchase the cult classic here.

9| NuFace Mini:  This at-home facial toning device is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand (hence, a stocking stuffer idea). This is the only product I haven’t tried. But I would say, this is a great gift for the gal who’s looking for a mini ‘face-lift!’ The NuFace mini is affordable, portable + has been known to really give results!
