Battle of the Cleansing Sticks | Tarte, Boscia & Belif

 

Cleansing in Stick form? I was more than just a little intrigued by the presumed convenience of it all. Being a new mommy, I’ve grown to appreciate products that can potentially simplify my beauty routine. And since it’s been a while since I’ve done a “Battle of…”, I decided to purchase a few to compare. This Battle of the Cleansing Sticks includes: the Tarte Frxxxtion Stick Exfoliating Cleanser, Belif The True Tincture Cleansing Stick Chamomile and Boscia Charcoal Deep-Pore Cleansing Stick Treatment.

Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations & Wishlist

 

It’s that again. You know…that time of year all of us beauty junkies marked on our calendars last year and have been anticipating ever since: the Sephora VIB Sale (Beauty Insider). It’s the big one. And although many other beauty retailers hold sales throughout the year, there’s something about this one that gets us all hot and bothered. In nearly two and a half years of blogging, I’ve never actually done a post about the sale. As a change of pace from my usual reviews, I thought it might be fun to share with you guys my Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations along with my personal wishlist. Sephora’s annual holiday shopping event is scheduled online and in-stores for 4th – 7th November, 2016 for Rouges and 11th – 14th for VIB’s. (VIB Rouges will get 20% off with code 20ROUGE and VIBs will receive 20% off their orders with code 20VIB).

Bobbi Brown To Glow Shimmer Brick Palette Trio Review | Holiday 2016

 

Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Bricks have been a long-standing beauty lover favorite. In fact, the brand refers to their much adored highlighters as iconic. Despite this coveted status, in all my years experimenting with makeup, I’d never actually tried one. But what are holiday collections good for if not to get you to try new things? Notwithstanding the sometimes gimmicky, consumerisn driven madness…I really enjoy the options offered by holiday sets, kits and palettes. And of all the releases we’ve been bombarded with this year, the Bobbi Brown To Glow Shimmer Brick Palette made it to the top of my shopping list.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks Mini Set | Holiday 2016

 

Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage for some time now and one of the formulas that’s lead the way is Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. Despite their huge popularity, I’d never actually tried them. Why so late to the party? I’m not sure…especially considering that I am a fan of KVD’s beauty line. Her Lock It setting spray (please come back) is my Holy Grail and I love her complexion products as well. Perhaps my tardiness is due in part to the fact that it’s taken me a while to warm up to liquid lipsticks in general. Whatever the reason, I went all in with the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks Mini Set that was released for the holidays.

Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette Review | Holiday 2016

 

Let’s talk holidays! With it being October and all, I feel a little less obnoxious featuring Holiday 2016 beauty releases. When Sephora sent VIB Rouge’s the email about the Holiday First Access event (10th September), I tried to resist the temptation. Besides, I knew I wouldn’t be able to attend anyway. When I discovered that the products were also available online, however, all bets were off. I didn’t go crazy though – just ordered a couple things. One of which is the Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Collection Palette. Well, if you’ve seen Monday’s post (hint: giveaway) then you know I actually got two!

This time there was a clear winner…the Laura Mercier Palette! It’s so beautiful, I couldn’t resist picking up one for myself as well (review coming up soon).
