DAY & NIGHT

Lately I have been trying out a lot of different lip combos AKA different variations of Nudes and Mauves but have been desperately wanting to start wearing a red lip more often. My favorite person in the world (Kahlana Barfield Brown) wears a red lip all the time, it’s her signature and because I aspire to be her / have a similar skin complexion, I started to get it out of my head that a red lip doesn’t look good on me.

SKINCARE EMPTIES

 

Winter is here and my skin has been going through it! I moved to a new state not long ago and while my skin is typically it’s best in the winter, this year that hasn’t been the case. I’ve been experiencing dehydration, flakiness and breakouts and it’s annoying!

But before winter hit, there were a few products I was using that became some of my favs, are now empty and that I need so desperately to repurchase.

RECENT SEPHORA AND ULTA BUYS + THE THINGS I WENT BACK FOR

recent-sephora-ulta-buys

So I’ve been slacking lately, but for very good reason. In a matter of a month (actually a little less than that) I accepted a new job, put in my two-weeks notice (which happened to actually be one week), packed up and moved from Maryland the Texas. So, needless to say, it’s been a stressful few weeks and I hadn’t had time to buy much let alone blog about it.

RECENT BEAUTY BUYS

Recent_Beauty_Buys

It’s been a while since I have posted here, but I’m back! I’ve been on a bit of a spending fast (which went pretty terribly) so I was trying my hardest not to purchase much in the month of September. I recently went to one of my favorite stores (Sephora), to pick up some things and I also recently got some orders in from Amazon. Perfect timing for a post!

I know you see the Fenty Beauty products front and center so lets start there! Because I hate going into stores when they are super packed, I waited until the week after the Fenty Beauty launch to stop in Sephora and pick up somethings that I saw in the 100+ tutorials I watched beforehand. Just my luck however, the darker shades were sold out at two locations but I was still able to get IQ matched so when the foundation is restocked, I will be able to purchase. I did get a sample and let me tell you… best foundation I have EVER used… EVER! I will talk more about it when I am able to purchase it and wear it more often, but all I can say is it really does look like skin.

THE BODY SHOP ETHIOPIAN HONEY MASK

Ok, so let’s talk about this mask!

I purchased this sample sized mask sometime in June or July when I was in NJ/NY along with a few other sample sized masks The Body Shop was offering. I have soooo many masks so a lot of them tend to sit until I want want to try something new or my skin is having a fit and I need something really specific.

CURRENT BEAUTY FAVS

 

For the past year I have been really focused on improving my skin, getting a regimen down and also finding products that will be staples in my collection. I’m not really the type of person that likes to use A LOT of different products, mainly because I breakout in hives really easy so I don’t want to test a lot of things at once and not know exactly what’s causing me to breakout. I try to test a product for at least 6 months before I say if I love it or hate it. A lot of the products above I’ve been using for moooonths and they haven’t let me down so I wanted to share with you all some of my current beauty favorites and products I will always reach for!

This is going to be a long one friends, so grab a snack… or two!

DRIVE THRUS AND BODEGAS

My only thought after this Chipotle run was that Maryland could really benefit from drive-thrus and bodegas. Super random I know… anyways, people are always asking me about this shirt I’m wearing here. I’m a late 80s baby and the first wave of kids that got to experience the greatness that was AOL, so when I saw it I knew I had to have it. If you don’t know what a/s/l means then you’re not old enough to be friends.
