February Birchbox

I am incredibly excited for my Birchbox this month because I have been dying to try out the Full Exposure palette by Smashbox but I have many nude shadows already so I have been hesitant to go buy more. I am still working on starting some picture tutorials (getting the right lighting etc.) so when I do that I will def do a post with these shadows. And maybe Jenna will want to do a post of the Color changing polish… yes color changing. It really did work, in the bottle at least. When I received the polish it was gold glitter and by the time I was taking the pictures outside it turned red, pretty neat! Oh and the puppys are my Aunts. Above is Button and below is Buddah and I could help but post the pics with them, they're just so cute!

If you would like to know more about Birchbox Check out my October Birchbox post I go into more detail explaining Birchbox. 

Have you tried any of these products? Do you have Birchbox or have any questions about Birchbox? Let me know in the comments below!

Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

This years Pantone Color is Radiant Orchid. So I thought I would share some Radiant Orchid makeup options. I'm pretty excited about this years color because I've always liked purple eyeshadow and just started to enjoy purple lipstick as well. I wanted to share some splurges and some steals. I just bought the Maybelline Brazen Berry lipstick and I am loving it. Hope you enjoy :)

Let me know if you have any favorite Radiant Orchid options that you've tried or want to try. Ciao!

Khroma Beauty and Sally Hansen Nails

Personally I hardly ever paint my nails. Nail Polish will not stay on my nails AT ALL, it chips no joke within a few hours. I don't know what it is! So I just stick with clear. My very good friend and roommate Jenna on the other hand LOVES nail polish so she will be doing the nail polish reviews :)

Jenna is on the right I am on the left 

Jenna has on Khroma Beauty polish in Edge and Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Nourishing Nail Color in Pure White Tip . Here is her review: The Khroma nail polish goes on smooth and dries super fast, you might want to put on a clear top coat because it tends to chip. The Sally Hansen has always been one of my favorite brands of polish. I chose this winter white as my accent color, it has vitamins in it to help your nails grow. It goes on a little thick, make sure you don't have too much polish on the brush and it takes longer to dry.

You can find the Sally Hansen on Amazon here. Jenna just bought the Khroma at CVS recently but for some reason I can only find it here and here. If you try these polishes out let me know what you think, or if you have any polishes you recommend let us know! Ciao!

January Birchbox

Today I will be sharing my January Birchbox! If you curious about Birchbox and how it works check out my first Birchbox post October Birchbox

The products that I am most excited to use are the Fekkai Glossing Creme, I have not found anything that really tames my frizzy curls. Olive oil is supposed to be very good for your hair and for taming frizz. And the Inkia Eyeshadow, I like green shadows and it is an organic natural pigment which excites me. 

I will keep you posted as I try certain things and let you know what I think. Let me know if you have Birchbox and what you think and if you have tried any of these products and what you think. Ciao!

Big Bold Brows

Who is into the bold eyebrow trend? I am!! I had some massive eyebrows growing up and unfortunately when I was in high school very thin eyebrows were in, so I took my tweezers and plucked away. I regret it now and have spent years trying to regrow them and fill them in with makeup.  I wanted to share some pictures with you of some of my favorite eyebrows.

Of course Cara Delevingne, she is the queen of eyebrows right now.

Lily Collins has the most amazing thick, dark, and perfectly arched brows.

And Kim Kardashian, well enough said right?

I will put up a post soon on my brow products (sneak peak: they're all Anastasia Beverly Hills!) and will try my first attempt on doing a picture tutorial. If that works I'll add that along with the review. Let me know what you think about big bold brows!

Garnier BB Cream

Hi! I'm back! :) My New Years resolution is to truly dedicate myself to this blog no more 2 1/2 month breaks! Without further ado let talk about BB Cream!

I love this for an everyday look. My skin is pretty good except for some redness in the cheeks and this takes care of that perfectly while still feeling nice and light on the skin. I have very dry skin so foundation usually clings to all my dry patches, this does not do that at all! This product has a nice creamy texture and goes on with a feel almost like moisturizer. I don't bother with brushes when using this, I blend it in with my fingers like you would to apply moisturizer. This is the "Classic" which is recommended for dry to normal skin, there are two other versions as well "Combination to Oily" and "Anti-Aging". It claims to: evens tone, hydrates, renewes, protects, brightens. 

The Garnier site says that it comes in light/medium and medium deep. But I bought fair/light a few months ago and one for my friend last month at Target. I don't know if they are discontinuing it but its on Amazon for $11.04,  Target for $10.19, and CVS for $12.99. I usually buy mine at my local CVS store. You can find reference for the other versions on the Garnier Site. I have recommended this to a few friends and they all really like it, if you try it please comment below and let me know what you think!
