Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette | Review and Swatches

Urban Decay’s Naked line is one of my favorites whether we’re talking about foundations, concealers, eyeshadows, etc. They have proven to be reliable products for me since Day 1 of being a beauty junkie and the palettes especially are total classics. The Naked 3 was actually the first ever high end palette I bought! When I saw the Naked Heat come out last year, I knew I had to have it. I didn’t own many fiery, warm toned shadows until the day I got my hands on Naked Heat.

I’m not sure if you remember but the first sneak peek of the swatches that came out were a HUGE letdown. Judging from that photo alone, I didn’t have the highest of hopes. Thankfully though, tons of influencers came out with helpful reviews soon after – many of which showed that this palette truly has the amazing formula as the other Naked palettes.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette | Review and Swatches

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam was on my “Must Have” list as soon as I saw Norvina share pictures of it. It’s a softer version of Modern Renaissance and full of beautiful shades that are perfect for day to day and evening looks.

ColourPop Lux Lipsticks | Swatches and Review

ColourPop is a brand I have a special place for in my heart. In fact, I’d say nearly half my makeup collection is comprised of their products! When they announced they were releasing their Lux Lipsticks, I knew I had to have the entire collection because lipsticks are my FAVORITE beauty product..well lipsticks and highlighters. PS: Code Priyanka5 will take $5 off your order!

ColourPop Lux Lipsticks | Swatches and Review

I didn’t have much hesitation purchasing the whole bundle..I had a feeling they’d do these lipsticks justice like they did with their other lip products – which I’m a HUGE fan of, especially their Ultra Matte Lips, Ultra Satin Lips, and Lippie Stix. After playing with these for the last week and swatching all 24 shades on my arm and lips, it’s time to give you my full thoughts.

Winter Lips Savior | Herpecin L 30 Lip Protectant

Winter is amongst us which means my lips are more chapped than usual. I am always on the search for a product that will moisturize and protect my lips without leaving a greasy residue. When  I heard of Herpecin L’s Lip Balm, I was immediately intrigued by the claims. It claims to provide REAL relief with REAL ingredients from cold sores, dry and chapped lips, as well as an SPF 30.

Herpecin L Lip Protectant

Let me start off by saying I seem to always have cracked and chapped lips. I feel like I’ve  used almost every lip balm on the planet, drugstore and high end, but I haven’t been extremely satisfied with my experiences. I am also super picky when it comes to anything skincare related, I don’t settle for average results.

Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector

Alright beauties, this is a long overdue review. I mean..I’ve used up 3 of these Urban Decay Naked Skin One and Done Hybrid Complexion Perfectors (my god this is a mouthful!) already and am well onto finishing up my fourth bottle. So yes, it’s about darn time I reviewed this product!

I had been using Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Ultra Definition Liquid Foundation before I saw this hit the shelves and did enjoy it but somedays I found it leaving my skin a tad bit oily. That didn’t stop me from using 2 whole bottles though! Fast forward to when this particular product hit the shelves. I was so intrigued because it stated it was a skin treatment that provided the effects of a sheer foundation. It’s also meant to blur imperfections, even skin tone, and be a long lasting – all day wear.

I’ve tried dozens and dozens of foundations and I always rely on this one for daily wear. Why? Because it does exactly what it’s meant to do.

Storybook Cosmetics Wizardry and Witchcraft Palette | Review

A full makeup line of products inspired by our favorite stories? Now that is a major dream come true for me! I’m a huge bookworm so when I saw Storybook Cosmetics announce they had big plans with collabs and products, I constantly stalked their Instagram account. They first launched a set of wand shaped makeup brushes which I was lucky to grab in the first release. Then they announced they were working on this palette that I’m about to review for you all! I was so happy to preorder and although shipping commenced a few months after preordered, it was well worth the wait!
