STILA STAY ALL DAY 10-IN-1 HD BEAUTY BALM

Hello beautiful! Hope you are are well! Today I wanted to review one of my all time favorite BB Creams. It's Stila's "Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm" and it's really a lovely product if your looking for a base that delivers a beautiful lightweight natural finish and skincare benefits all in one!
So let's take a closer look at this little gem!

STILA STAY ALL DAY 10-IN-1 HD BEAUTY BALM
So let's start with the packaging. This BB cream comes in a sleek silver tube with black accents. The plastic tube is great for travel and makes it easy to dispense the product.
I love the concept of BB Creams but I've had a hard time finding one that works well with my oily/breakout prone skin. This one seems to be working well (this is my 3rd tube)...it provides a lovely lightweight coverage while minimizing and perfecting slight imperfections and unevenness without breaking me out. It's a great choice if you're not into wearing anything too heavy on your s…

CLARINS BEAUTY FLASH BALM

Hello everyone! Today I will be reviewing a product that I picked up super cheap at Winners not long ago and have become a huge fan of. It's Clarins Beauty Flash Balm and I have to say it's quite an amazing product! If you're looking for something that hydrates...smooths, brightens and tightens the skin than this product might be for you!
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm is a very versatile product. It can be worn alone to perfect the look of your skin...worn under make up as a "primer" or "base" or it can be used as a mask to deeply hydrate and repair dry skin. Sounds pretty great...right?
Let's take a closer look!

CLARINS BEAUTY FLASH BALM
Let's start off by talking about the ingredients. Beauty Flash Balm contains Witch Hazel & Olive Tree Extracts which help tighten the skin & promote radiance. It also contains Algae which has a revitalizing effect and Rice Starch which can help purify the skin.
The texture of this product is lightweight, sm…

MAC WOODWINKED EYE SHADOW

Hello lovelies! Hope you are having a fabulous day! Today I will be reviewing one of my favorite eye shadows. It's the popular "Woodwinked" from MAC and it's such a pretty color for Spring/Summer...or anytime of the year for that matter! 
I'm kind of a simple gal when it comes to eye make up...I tend to gravitate to the more neutral colors and I hardly ever do anything very elaborate. I like to keep it simple so I love finding shades that add flattering color and a little sparkle with little to no effort...and this little gem does that well!
So let's take a closer look!

MAC WOODWINKED (Veluxe Pearl)
So let's start with the packaging. It's the signature MAC plastic case/pot. I really like how minimal and sleek all MAC products look.

Now let's look at the actual product. The finish of this eye shadow is a Veluxe Pearl...which as you can see from the picture above it's quite shimmery...it almost has a metallic look to it. The "shimmer" …

MAC MATTE BLUSH IN MELBA

Hello beautiful! Today I will be reviewing one of my all time favorite blushes for Spring/Summer. It's a matte blush from MAC that is (in my opinion) the prettiest kiss of soft peachy/apricot color which looks incredibly natural on the cheeks. As soon as the warmer weather hits I find myself gravitating to this blush. I just love how fresh & youthful it looks!
So let's take a closer look!

MAC MATTE BLUSH IN MELBA
So let me start by saying I'm a huge fan of MAC's Matte Blushes and have been using them for years. I have fairly large pores on my cheeks so I prefer to use blushes that are matte to prevent accentuating those pesky pores with shimmer. The texture of these blushes are lovely & smooth and apply very evenly to the skin. They have great pigmentation and are very build-able if you want more of a dramatic look.

Now lets talk about the color. Melba is a pretty peachy/apricot shade that adds such a fresh and youthful look to the skin. As soon as I apply it I…

CLINIQUE CHUBBY STICK IN #02 WHOLE LOTTA HONEY

Hello lovelies! Today I wanted to review a product that has quickly become a "staple" lippie in my collection. It's the popular "Whole Lotta Honey" Chubby Stick from Clinique and I have to say I'm absolutely in love! For me it's the perfect combination of gorgeous color, comfortable wear, hydration & shine!
So let's take a closer look at this little lovely!

CLINIQUE CHUBBY STICK IN #02 WHOLE LOTTA HONEY
So let's start with the packaging. It comes in a fat "crayon" style tube with a plastic case that corresponds to the color hiding inside and silver accents. To reveal the product you simply twist the bottom...and up it comes! 
The actual product is (in my opinion) quite delightful! Let's start off with the color. "Whole Lotta Honey" is a gorgeous nude, caramel, honeyed brown that I think would be flattering on most skin tones. It's that perfect "my lips but better" shade that's so easy to wear. It enh…

BEAUTIFUL NAILS WITH ESSIE GROW STRONGER

Hello beautiful! Today I wanted to share with you my favorite nail strengthener that I have been having great results with lately. I have very...lets say "difficult" nails...they are close to impossible to grow! They peel & chip and break off as soon as they grow longer than my finger tips. I've tried many things with no luck until recently when I picked up this little gem!
So let's take a closer look!

ESSIE GROW STRONGER
I've been having great results with this products! It has really added allot of strength which has aided in the growth and health of my nails. I'm really hard on my hands and this formula really makes my nails more durable and less prone to breakage. It protects them from daily wear and tear while adding a shiny finish and beautiful sheer wash of soft pink color. I also love the fact that this formula is DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free! Bonus!

You can see from the pictures above just how lovely and delicate the soft sheer pink color o…

CHANEL ROUGE COCO SHINE #54 BOY

Hello again! So I have another review for you today on the popular and very lovely Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in #54 Boy. If you're looking for the perfect color for everyday wear than this shade might be for you! As the name suggest this product delivers beautiful shine with a gentle wash of color. It's great if lipstick isn't your thing and you're not a fan of gloss because it's more of a tinted balm type product that delivers a nice amount of moisture.
So let's take a closer look!

CHANEL ROUGE COCO SHINE #54 BOY
To begin we'll start with the packaging. As with all Chanel products the packaging is completely chic and utterly sophisticated. The tube is composed of metal (no cheap plastic here) and the cap snaps on & off securely. Of course it has the classic signature Chanel black & gold  finish...sheer luxury!

As you can see here the tube is more on the skinny side compared to a typical lipstick. It's quite sleek and slender and would fit nicely …
