Stila Shine Fever Lip Vinyl Review & Swatches

Stila shoots and scores again with the introduce of Shine Fever Lip Vinyl! Stila Shine Fever Lip Vinyl ($24) is a new, permanent range of glossy liquid lipsticks available in 14 shade selections that launched for Spring 2020. Stila Beauty Boss Lip Gloss launched last Spring and at best I thought they’d do some new shades for Spring 2020 but nope, they went all in and launched an entirely different lip product that’s bloody fabulous! I’m happy that Spring is bringing so many shiny lip options be...

Sephora Curl Cream Eases Frizzes, Doesn’t Weight Hair Down, Will Likely Be Discontinued

I picked up the new Sephora Curl Cream from the Sephora Collection for $14 bucks recently and it does a fine job of easing my frizz without weighting my hair down but I bet it’ll be discontinued because that’s what happens with Sephora product launches I like. I mean, who remembers the Sephora Wonderful Cushion Foundation? That stuff was amazing and of course, they discontinued it. There’s not a lot of rum for sustainability in the Sephora Collection! Stuff comes and goes really, really qui...

Bath and Body Works Christmas Cocoa & Mint Is Getting Poor Reviews But My Review Is All Good

Bath and Body Works Christmas Cocoa & Mint is a new fragrance that launched for Holiday 2019 during the first annual Body Care Day where all body care and fragrances mists were $4.95 each. Bath & Body Works went live on Instagram with Santa to introduce Body Care Day which is bound to become a Holiday tradition like Candy Day and during that introduction they said they’d have a new fragrance available which was Christmas Cocoa & Mint. I probably heard incorrectly but I thought they said the f...

I Paid $50 For This Shampoo and Conditioner Duo and I Don’t Regret It

I did it. I purchased the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Joia Strengthening + Smoothing Shampoo and Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Joia Strengthening + Smoothing Conditioner and I don’t regret it at all. Each bottle is $25 each and holds nearly 10 ounces of product. I typically don’t go gaga over hair care! I do love my Lush products and of course, my Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo but I’m not one to go to gaga over hair care. However, when I heard Sol De Janeiro...

Bath & Body Works Christmas Cookies Fine Fragrance Mist Review

Bath & Body Works Christmas Cookie is yet another limited edition Holiday 2019 fragrance that launched with the Bath & Body Works Sweet Shop Collection. I have to admit I’m really loving some of these scents and I’m happy I grabbed them! By the way, it’s not yet listed but it’s been leaked they’ll be a Mint Cookie scent launching soon! Perhaps for Black Friday or Cyber Monday? Anyway, I did purchase Christmas Cookie as soon as it launched on site and I couldn’t be happier I grabbed it. Here’...

Bath & Body Works Bright Lemon Snowdrop Brings Hello Sugar Vibrations

Bath & Body Works Bright Lemon Snowdrop is one of the new, limited edition Sweet Shop Fragrances available for Holiday 2019. I hauled all the fragrance mists last week when they had a sale for $4.95 and I had a coupon plus a buy 3, get 3 sale option so I also got the body lotions as well. Today both the Fine Fragrance Mists and the Body Lotions are $6 so, if these interest you today might be a good day to haul them. I kind of sort of quick on Bath & Body Works because of two reasons one of wh...

Colourpop Call Me On My Shellphone Review & Swatches

I picked up the new Colourpop Call Me On My Shellphone Super Shock Shadow Trio ($15) because I’m slowly become re-addicted to Colourpop. For a while, I was like, “New Colourpop? Meh!” now when they do new collections I’m the first in line to buy all the new, shiny things. I’m not yet tired of their overwhelming amount of releases. I mean, they are doing a total Too Faced/Tarte thing at the moment where they have new eyeshadow palette coming out three to four times a month. It’s a pretty insane ...

Lush Once Upon a Time Body Lotion Smells Like Fairy Tales

Lush Once Upon a Time Body Lotion is a new, lightweight body lotion that launched with the Lush Christmas 2019 Collection and fans of So White are going to be quite happy about this one! I was disappointed with Snowflake Body Lotion but Lush Once Upon a Time Body Lotion gets a Muse Approval! It’s gorgeous. Lush’s Christmas Collection has some keepers this year! But that sucks because it makes you want to stock up on all your favorites so you’ll never be without them! But the problem is that...

Huda Beauty Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

I did indeed purchase two of the three new Huda Beauty Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes ($29) and I’m here to review them today for you! I absolutely love these to death and I will say you need them for your very own. I am still enjoying Fall and I’m burying my head in the sand about Christmas coming! Let me hold on to the season just a little while longer! The Huda Beauty Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette shades I picked sure are helping me do that. Ok, full disclosure, you probably don’t ne...

Florence by Mills Get Glossed Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Ladies and Gentlemen we have another great pick from Florence by Mills for review today! Florence by Mills Get Glossed Lipgloss is a new, vegan-friendly, cruel-free lipgloss created in collaboration by Millie Bobby Brown. Yes, I know, I had the same thoughts you’re having at the moments. The ones where you’re all, “How can I relate to a makeup line created by a Gen Zer?” I know, I’ve had these thoughts myself. As cute as a button Millie is I wasn’t sure I could relate to a makeup collection cre...

Colourpop Drop of a Hat Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Colourpop Drop of a Hat Super Shock Cheek is one of six new blushes that launched with the Colourpop Whatever Eyeshadow Palette. I got all six shades of the blush when I purchased the Call It Whatever Vault and I don’t regret the purchase at all! These are so my shades and they feel so very Fall which I’ve really been missing with all these Holiday releases that skipped right over the Fall season!

Lush Hair Custard Smells Like Dessert

Lush Hair Custard is a gorgeous vanilla and toffee scented hair dressing that smells like dessert for your hair. I never tried this until recently even though it released a few years ago! But on a whim I picked up a bottle. I think in the past I wasn’t loving the fact it was in a pot but now that its in a squeeze bottle I thought it was time to try it out. Now it deserves to be mentioned people are ripping this apart in reviews because it appears with the new packaging there’s now a new form...

These are extremely affordable little eyeshadow palettes that are $15 each. Ulta got two of the palettes and the remaining four are available on Lorac’s website.

Lush Boo! Shower Slime Review

Lush Boo! Shower Slime ($18.95) is a new, limited edition exfoliating shower jelly that released with the Lush Halloween 2019 Collection. I remember when Lush Halloween consisted of two or three items one of which was Ghost Shower Gel which I so dearly loved. Halloween has become a major deal for Lush and the collection is a lot larger in recent years. I love Halloween so of course, I look forward to their launches around this time of the year. Something I do not like is Lush Shower Jelly. I th...

Natasha Denona Mini Gold Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Natasha Denona Mini Gold Eyeshadow Palette ($25) is a new, limited edition Holiday 2019 5-pan eyeshadow palette which is exclusively available at Sephora. I purchased this the day it came out because I love a good olive green palette. Greens just look great on my big brown eyes. But this is sort of another case of Fall 2019 merging into Holiday 2019 because I swear this feels way more Fall in tone than it does Holiday. We’re seeing a lot of this happen across many brands! Too Faced Extra Spicy ...

Charlotte Tilbury Palette of Pops Luxury Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Charlotte Tilbury Palette of Pops Luxury Eyeshadow Palette ($53) is a new, limited edition that contains four sparkling, sheer eyeshadow toppers inspired by the original and bestselling Pillow Talk Luxury Eyeshadow Palette. The palette was created as a companion piece of sorts to work with the original palette which I loved the idea of as the original palette is lovely but subtle and I wasn’t averse to add a bit more “pop” the look that Pillow Talk creates. I was very, very surprised that the p...

Tarte Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick Might Convince Me I Like Matte Liquid Lipsitck

Tarte Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick ($15) is a new liquid lipstick formula that launched with the Tarte Sugar Rush Collection in four shades. I’m not a big fan of matte, long-wearing lipsticks as we all know since I tell you this daily and I’m starting to sound like a broken record. But from time to time a formula will come out and make me change my mind. I have to admit that formula might be Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick! It’s lightweight, non-drying, and fairly priced. And the Tart...

Pat Mcgrath Labs Mini LUST Gloss Trio Gets You Not One but Three Great Lipglosses at a Great Price

Pat Mcgrath Labs Mini LUST Gloss Trio ($25) is a trio of mini Lust Lipgloss shades that’s available in a warm and cool shade selections. It’s a rather nice way to try out the Lust Lipgloss formula without spending $28 on a single shade. Don’t get me wrong, Lust Lipgloss is totally worth the $28 price tag but it’s always nice to get three mini shades to check out, try out, and play with before indulging on one full-size shade. I own both the cooler and the warmer shade range in this set but ...

Tarte Adelaine Morin Eye & Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Tarte Adelaine Morin Eye & Cheek Palette ($39) launched a few short weeks ago and was created in collaboration with youTuber Adelaine Morin. Yes, I’m old and had to Google who she was because I was all: Ok, so, here’s the thing. I’m either not watching enough youTube, I’m too old, I may live under a rock, or Tarte selects youTubers no one ever heard of to do collaborations with. I’ll feel a lot better if someone steps in here and says they don’t know who Adelaine is either. Had the same issue ...

Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture So Extra Drenched Hydration Buttery Conditioner Review

Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture So Extra Drenched Hydration Buttery Conditioner ($22) is a new deep conditioner that I recently purchased at Sephora. The name drew me in because when I was like 12 I wrote an essay on Madam C.J. Walker. See? Even way back I was obsessed with beauty! Madam C.J. Walker was a political and social activist but also, an African American business woman who sold developed and sold her own line of hair care in the 1900s. Now, Madam Walker has long since left us bu...

Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Color Review & Swatches

I picked up a few shades of the new Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Color Lipstick ($3.99) that launched a several weeks ago on the brand’s website. At $3.99 each these seemed like a good pick up as the creamy, lightweight formula that Wet n Wild promised sounded like something I’d love. Not to mention they tempted me with a creamy texture that had hydrating ingredients like Murumuru Seed Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, Argan Oil, and Macadamia Oil. As someone with drier lips they sounded great! Th...

It’s been a while since any mid or high-range lipglosses caught my eye but this formula is divine!

Natasha Denona Duo Glow ($38) in Alba has been on my wish list a while as I do love golden coral shades! Since Summer is going to get here eventually I decided to purchase this during the Sephora Sales Event at 20% off. I could be delirious here but $38 wasn’t too bad a price to pay at retail as Natasha’s line is marked up pretty heavily and I was like hmm this is twice the size as NARS Orgasm for $8 more. NARS Orgasm is 0.16 oz and $30 where as Natasha Denona Duo Glow is 0.35 oz and $38. So, i...
