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!

Lady Burgundy Matte Lip Creams | First Impressions and Swatches

Liquid lipsticks are one of my favorite beauty products, I have hundreds and will definitely own hundreds more. So naturally, when Lady Burgundy came out with their new line of Matte Lip Creams, I was beyond ecstatic!

Lady Burgundy started off as a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle blog several years ago and since then has created their own line of cosmetics. These lip creams have been in the making for two years and are created with quality ingredients and are home made in Canada. Plus, these babies are cruelty free, always a plus in my book!

If you're looking for POC friendly and incredibly comfortable liquid matte lipsticks with stunning packaging, Lady Burgundy is for you!

Disclaimer: I was sent these lip creams free of charge. This post is not sponsored and there are no referral/affiliate links. As always, all opinions are 100% mine.

Sephora VIB Rouge Sale Haul | Spring 2017

Sephora recently had their Spring Beauty Insider sale where VIB and Rouge members received 15% off their purchases while Beauty Insiders received 10% off their purchases. I usually try to wait to do my biggest hauls in the Fall/Winter when Sephora has this same sale, except 20% off for VIB and Rouge members and 15% off for Beauty Insiders. Moreover, they usually send a $10, $15, or $20 off $50+ purchase coupon in December.

This time, however, I couldn’t resist on certain products and did splurge after splurge in store and online.

Walmart Beauty Box Review | Spring 2017

My Spring Walmart Beauty Box  arrived this week and I have to say I am impressed! For $5 a box, you can’t really expect a whole lot but this season’s box was jam packed full of goodies.

The Walmart Beauty Box  is a quarterly subscription service that provides full and sample size beauty products and coupons. All you pay is a $5 shipping charge and you get a box full of goodies delivered straight to your doorstep! This subscription is available to US residents only.

Spring 2017 Walmart Beauty Box

This service isn’t fully customizable like other beauty boxes. There are two different curated boxes each season and the one you get depends on your age. Subscribers under the age of 35 will receive the “Trendsetter” box and those 35+ will receive the “Classic” box.

Something different did occur this season, however. I received an email about two weeks ago asking if I wanted to opt in for their first themed box, the theme being “Me Moment”, which I did.  After browsing Instagram and My Subscription Addiction – I noticed this themed box was a mixture of the Trendsetter and Classic boxes minus a couple products.
