Loreal Colour Riche Balm in Heavenly Berry

I really like these Loreal balms, as they are quite sheer but add a hint of color and shine to the lips. This one is especially pretty over a berry colored lip stick or stain!

Maybelline Color Whisper in Berry Ready

As you can tell, I’ve been on a Berry kick this past month! This Color Whisper is extremely pigmented. I’ve never seen a “balm” from the drugstore with this much color payoff. The balm is very lightweight and lasts a while without having to reapply!

NYC Liquid Lipshine in Rivington Rose

I’ve never used NYC’s products before, for fear that they’re cheaply made and poor quality. I was wrong! I used this lipgloss on a flower girl I made up for a wedding, recently. The color is gorgeous and isn’t sticky at all. There isn’t any sparkle to it, which is lovely for layering.

Benefit Girl Meets Pearl

I’m not the biggest fan of liquid highlighters, but I really love this one from Benefit! I’ve been mixing the tiniest drop of it with my foundation for an all over glow. It looks amazing on camera on the tops of the cheekbones as well. It looks glowy and never greasy, which is a major plus!

Benefit World Famous Neutrals Sexiest Nudes Palette

 I did a review on this a couple days ago with swatches! The eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented and are wonderful to buy if you haven’t tried Benefit eyeshadows before!

NYC Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara

Another surprising product from NYC! I never really stray away from my Covergirl Clump Crusher, but I needed a mascara to use on the flowergirls and bridesmaids I made up for a wedding. This mascara is amazing! I can’t say enough about the brush, the lack of clumps, and the overall falsh lash effect it gives. For $2, this is an absolutely amazing buy!

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl Kajal Liner in Brown

I really love these Rimmel Kohl liners. They are a complete dupe for the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On pencils, and they are incredible! I like to put this brown liner on my top lash line and smudge it out for a smokey effect. This is another wonderful drugstore buy for only $4!


Victoria’s Secret Mist in Dream Angels Kiss

I never really use the Victoria’s Secret perfumes, but I’ve always heard good things about them. A friend recently gave this to me and I’ve been using it everyday ever since! The scent is gorgeous and lasts all day! The top notes are very floral and feminine.
