AVENE THERMAL SPRING WATER SPRAY

Hello lovelies! Today I will be reviewing a staple in my skin care routine. It's Avene's Thermal Water Spray and it's truly an amazing product. I have been using this spray for years and can't be without it! It's the perfect pick me up for tired lack luster skin and it feels so refreshing...especially in warmer weather. I use it day and night and love the way it makes my skin feel.
So let's take a closer look at this wonderful product!

AVENE THERMAL SPRING WATER SPRAY
When I first saw this product years ago...I thought it was a complete waste of money. Water in a can? How silly! How wrong I was! I remember getting a small can as a gift with purchase shortly after and immediately after the first use...fell in love! I have been using it religiously ever since. I cannot be without this spray. It is so versatile and makes my skin look more healthy and radiant.
Avene's Thermal Spring Water Spray is infused with trace elements and silicates creating a perfect bal…

MARC JACOBS LOVEMARC LIP GEL - Role Play

Hello everyone! Hope you are all well! Today I wanted to review a new lippie that I picked up the other day. It's the lovely "Role Play" Lip Gel from Marc Jacobs and it has quickly become my perfect "go to" shade for effortless chic everyday wear. This lipstick is absolute perfection...everything from the packaging...formulation to the shade. I'm loving it!
So let's take a closer look at this little lovely!

MARC JACOBS LOVEMARC LIP GEL ~ ROLE PLAY
So let's start with the packaging. It's sleek and minimal which I really like. It has a nice weight to it and feels substantial in the hand. The neat thing about the case is that it has a magnetized closure so when you put the cap on it snaps into place and feels quite secure.

The formula is not like a traditional lipstick. It's a lip "gel" which has a cushy/jelly cream consistency that is really comfortable on. It feels plush, silky and lightweight and is quite moisturizing as well.

I wo…

MAC "VEGAS VOLT" LIPSTICK - Amplified

Hello beauties! Hope you are all well! Today I wanted to review a super fun and playful lipstick that I purchased a while ago and have just recently been really enjoying and using quite a bit. It's MAC's Vegas Volt and it's such a lovely bright pop of color...perfect for Spring/Summer time wear!
So let's take a closer look at this bright beauty!

MAC VEGAS VOLT LIPSTICK ~ Amplified
Vegas Volt comes in an "Amplified" finish which has a creamy and smooth feel when applied. It hugs the lips with creamy comfort and I find it doesn't dry out my lips. It also wears well...I can get approximately 3-4 hours before I feel the need to re-apply.

As you can see in the swatch pictures above...this lippie is very opaque and has great pigmentation. With just one swipe it gives amazing vibrancy and creamy even coverage.

I love this shade because it's very versatile. I find that if applied lightly it has a beautiful soft coral quality and when applied full on you get t…

BOOTS N0 7 BEAUTIFUL SKIN FOAMING CLEANSER

Hello lovelies! Today I will be reviewing a lovely cleanser I've been using recently with great results. It's the Boots N0 7 Beautiful Skin Foaming Cleanser for normal to oily skins and it has really become a favorite especially for Spring/Summer when my skin is especially oily. 
As I mentioned above...my skin is quite oily and I'm always on the look out for something that will cleanse thoroughly without stripping or making my skin feel dry. Allot of "oily skin" cleansing products that I have used in the past have always been too harsh and leave my skin feeling uncomfortable and tight. This cleanser has been working wonderfully...it's super gentle but very effective!
So let's take a closer look!


N0 7 BEAUTIFUL SKIN FOAMING CLEANSER ~ For Normal To Oily Skin
This cleanser has a gentle soap free formula that is formulated to gently cleanse and purify normal to oily complexions. It removes make up, dirt, oil and grime without stripping the skin or leaving an…

MAC "CREME IN YOUR COFFEE" LIPSTICK - Cremesheen

Hello beauties! Hope you are all feeling fabulous! Today I have lipstick review for you and it's on another great color that I recently got from the "Back To MAC" recycling program. If your not familiar with their recycling program...you bring in 6 empties and get to pick out a lipstick! How great is that?! 
The lipstick I chose was "Creme In Your Coffee" which is a beautiful, sultry, versatile and wearable shade that I've had my eye on for awhile. It's perfect for everyday or evening wear and because of it's creamy finish it's a delight to wear!
So let's take a closer look at this lovely lippie!

MAC "CREME IN YOUR COFFEE" LIPSTICK (cremesheen)
"Creme In Your Coffee" comes in MAC's signature black and silver lipstick bullet style tube which is sleek and sturdy. It also has the signature MAC "vanilla" scent.

The finish of this lipstick is a cremesheen. Which has a rich and creamy and very smooth consistency. …

MAC STUDIO FIX POWDER FOUNDATION

Hello everyone! Hope you are all well! Today I will be talking about a powder foundation that I have been really loving lately. It's MAC's Studio Fix Powder Foundation and it's such a great product...especially if you don't like to use liquid bases or you're looking for something that feels lightweight but gives great coverage.
I have super oily skin that is really hard to control especially in the hot weather...so I tend to gravitate more towards powders rather than liquids in the summer time. This powder is really effective as it gives decent coverage...helps control oil and gives the skin a flawless look without much effort.
So let's take a closer look!

MAC STUDIO FIX POWDER FOUNDATION (NW30)
This powder comes in the signature sleek and sturdy MAC compact that houses a good sized mirror which makes touch ups easy. It also comes with an application sponge that is in a compartment underneath the foundation.

As you can see this powder is well loved! I've be…

YSL ROUGE VOLUPTE - Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick #3 Ultimate Beige

Hello beauties! Hope you are all feeling fabulous! Okay...so I have yet another lipstick review for you today...seriously I have a problem! Haha! I have been on a lippie binge lately and have a few more fabulous shades that I want to share with you so hopefully you're not too sick of seeing them!
Today I will be talking about the most gorgeous lipstick I have ever seen or owned! It's the utterly luxurious YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick and it looks like a piece of exquisite jewelry...its just so beautiful! 
I've been dying to get one of these but I was never 100% sure about which color to go for (ordering online) and because they are more on the pricey side I didn't want to choose something that wouldn't look good on me. So now that we have a Sephora nearby (YAY!!!!) I was able to go and see first hand which colors were more flattering for my skin tone...which was so much fun!
So let's take a closer look at this amazing lipstick!

YSL ROUGE VOLUPTE SILKY SENSUAL RAD…

MAC "TWIG" LIPSTICK - Satin Finish

Hello lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Today I have another lipstick review for you...can you tell I have a slight obsession with lip products? Ha! I've really been into lipsticks lately and have been trying to chose shades that are classic and wearable and that really flatter my skin tone. Twig is definitely one of those shades! 
Whenever I think of a great shade for everyday wear I always think of pink-y brown colors...I just think they are super flattering and so easy to wear for so many skin tones! 
So let's take a closer look at Twig!

MAC "TWIG" LIPSTICK (satin finish)
Twig is described as a soft muted brownish-pink and is in a satin finish. The satin finish gives this lippie more staying power in my opinion. I can get approximately 4-5 hours wear before I feel the need to reapply. It's quite opaque and really wraps your lips in super rich highly pigmented color. 
It can feel a tad drying as the day goes on...I would recommend using a lip balm …

NARS - Dolce Vita Blush

Hello beauties! Hope you are all well! Today I will be talking about a lovely new addition to my make up family! It's my very first NARS blush and I have to say...WOW!!! 
I was so excited when I heard that a Sephora was opening nearby and I very anxiously awaited it's arrival. Finally opening day came and I was instantly transported to cosmetic heaven! So many beautiful things to look at...it was slightly overwhelming and a total thrill for this beauty junkie! With all the temptations I was actually quite conservative with my shopping and only came out with 2 products. One of those products was this amazing blush!
So let's take a closer look!

NARS DOLCE VITA BLUSH
So let's start with the packaging. It's sleek and minimal and the case has a matte finish.

The color is gorgeous. I would describe it as a muted reddish/berry/rose that looks like the natural flush you get in your cheeks after being outside on a windy day or after exercising. It's also the kind of col…

ARGAN MAGIC - Nourishing Hair Cream

Hello lovelies! Today I wanted to talk to you about a hair product that I picked up from Winner's the other day. It's a hair cream that contains Argan oil and claims to eliminate frizz and define curls while making hair shiny and healthy looking. I saw that and thought that sounded amazing...especially for my frizzy wild & wavy hair! So does this stuff really work???
Let's take a closer look!

ARGAN MAGIC NOURISHING HAIR CREAM


As mentioned above...I have very wild naturally wavy hair that is very frizzy...has a coarse texture and is very hard to manage. I find dry oils, serums and styling creams work best with my hair texture...especially in hot humid weather.
What attracted me to this hair cream initially was that it contained Argan Oil...which I have a slight obsession with lately! Argan Oil is high in essential fatty acids and is very nourishing for the hair. It adds allot of moisture and shine and penetrates the hair giving it a healthy look and feel.
This hair crea…

MAC "COSMO" LIPSTICK - Amplified Creme

Hello beauties! Hope you are all well! So I finally took advantage of the "Back To MAC" recycling program the other day and picked up a lipstick that I have been wanting for awhile. If you're not familiar with MAC's recycling program...you bring in 6 empties and then get to pick out a lipstick. Pretty cool! It's a good thing I never throw anything away! Ha! 
"Cosmo" is the lipstick that I chose and it's such a lovely color! I've been looking for a color that would work well for everyday wear and be flattering on my skin tone and this lippie is exactly what I was looking for!
So let's take a closer look!

MAC "COSMO" LIPSTICK (amplified creme finish)
I would describe Cosmo as a warm mid tone rose-y/pink that is almost a "my lips but better" shade. It really enhances my lips by adding just the right amount of color. It's the perfect tone for everyday wear if you want something that will add a nice flush but still look na…
