Black Friday Beauty Deals (and Cyber Monday)


It’s that time again…when all of us shopaholics rejoice and consumerism reaches new heights: BLACK FRIDAY! With the biggest shopping day of the year right around the corner, I will admit that I’m not one to brave the madness of actually physically going out and shopping. No. I much prefer to take advantage of the plethora of online deals (which are just as good anyway). So I thought I’d share with you guys some of my favorite Black Friday beauty deals (and Cyber Monday deals) as well as others I’ve coming across over the past week. Happy Shopping (or not) everyone!

Kat Von D Metal Matte Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


Back with more from Kat Von D! While I enjoy almost every product I’ve tried from Kat’s beauty line, I’d never actually purchased one of her eye shadow palettes. When she released her Metal Crush eye shadows last year I was really tempted, especially after all of the stellar reviews. But I held back because I don’t typically purchase many eye shadow singles. When the Kat Von D Metal Matte Eyeshadow Palette, therefore, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to take the plunge…

Cleansing in Stick form? I was more than just a little intrigued by the presumed convenience of it all.

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.
