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.

Wet N Wild’s Rosé in the Air Palette | Review and Comparison to ABH Modern Renaissance

Creating a stunning makeup look doesn’t have to break the bank and Wet N Wild proved that yet again with their new and improved formula of their Color Icon shadows! I was so excited when these launched – the palettes looked beautiful in photos and from what I saw in reviews. I was especially curious and excited about Rosé in the Air because it looked SO similar to Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette, which is a staple for so many of us beauty lovers!

Three Ways To Achieve Clear and Healthy Skin

Let’s chat skin! I’ve been obsessed with skin care for as long as I can remember. I was that teen with horrible acne and picked literally every single zit and blackhead that popped up on my body, leaving me with HORRIBLE acne scars, some of which I’m still working to get rid of today. Because of what my skin went through in the past, I often have people ask me what I did to get my skin more clear and healthy.

3 Ways To Achieve Clear and Healthy Skin

I’ll be sharing three ways that help me achieve the clear, healthy skin I desire. Do keep in mind though, everyone has unique skin and what works for me may not work for you.

Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation | Full Review

Happy Foundation Friday! Today, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on a foundation I have not been able to put down – the Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation.

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.
