May Favorites
It's the end of the month and you know what time it is? It's May favorites time! This monthly favorites video is a bit different to the others I've recorded in the past. First of all, this video is part of a collab with four of my YouTube friends: Bon Parisien, Jonathan Curtis, Will Cook, and Sammee Jayne. Second, in this video I will be sharing some of my favorite natural and cruelty-free products. All but one product is cruelty-free and the majority of the products are incredibly affordable. If you're interested in seeing what I've been loving and all the other videos in the collab please keep reading.

May 2015 Ipsy Bag Opening

May 2015 Ipsy Bag Opening
I've you've seen my Ipsy bag openings, then you would know that I've always been very happy about the subscription services. There has been a few products that haven't worked out, but the bag as a whole has never disappointed me. This month's bag was by far the most exciting bag that I've ever received from Ipsy. I swear I felt like the Nintendo 64 kid as I was opening this bag, I just can't help but get a little too excited over makeup and skincare.

Chatty High-End Makeup Tutorial

Chatty High-End Makeup Tutorial
The chatty makeup tutorial is back and feeling very fancy! This time around I used a lot of the products that I bought during the Sephora VIB Sale. Many of you were curious to see some of the products I bought in action, so I'm going to show you how they apply and share my thoughts about them. This tutorial is by far my most high-end tutorial, but that doesn't mean that you can't recreate it with drugstore makeup products. Also, this video is a long one so make sure you grab yourself something to drink and a snack!

You've seen these glasses already in a few outfit of the day posts, Snapchat stories, and even in my vlogs. I reach for these glasses on a regular basis because they match everything in my wardrobe. Yes, everything! They're also quite big in size, and the gradient effect from black to clear is something that catches the attention of many people. I've probably passed on the website a good 20 times during work and a few more times online. These are one of my favorite glasses in my collection, and the best thing is that they're less than $50 with prescription. 

Review | Boxycharm

Boxycharm Review
Boxycharm is a subscription service that was first introduced to me thanks to KathleenLights. Unlike other subscription boxes, the majority of products sent by Boxycharm are full-sized products. Products included in this box range from high-end to affordable and they even include some vegan and cruelty-free options. This is one of the pricier beauty boxes I have seen, but I was still drawn to it because they send mostly full-sized products. In this review I will be unboxing their two most recent boxes, just so I can give you a better opinion about the service.

Review | CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara and Intensify! Me! Liquid Eyeliner

Review CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara and Intensify! Me! Liquid Eyeliner
Last week I received a nice little package from CoverGirl which included two of their newest releases: The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara and the Intensify! Me! by Lashblast Liquid Eyeliner. CoverGirl is one of those brands that nearly every girl buys when they're first trying to get into makeup. The original Lashblast Volume Mascara in the orange tube was one of the first mascaras that I tried that left me incredibly impressed with my lashes. And most recently the Full Lash Bloom Mascara became a big winner in my look, so you can imagine how excited I got when I saw a brand new CoverGirl mascara in the box. In this blog post you'll get to see a first impression review on both of the products, as well as a review that will talk about both the formula and longevity of each product. 

April 2015 Ipsy Bag Opening

April Ipsy Bag Opening
I skipped last month's Ipsy bag opening but I'm back with the April bag! This was one of my favorite bags that I've received from the subscription service. Not only was the physical bag very nice, but the products inside were also incredibly nice. I feel like subscription services have really stepped up their game in the last few months, and I have zero complaints about that.

April 2015 Favorites

April Favorites
Ahhhhhhh... It's gonna be May! Well it already technically is May, but I just felt like starting off a blog post with that because I'm a 90's kid for life. Before we begin a brand new month of beauty discoveries and rediscoveries, it is time to look back the my most-used products in the month of April. There's a good mix of new and familiar products, as well as drugstore and high-end makeup. And how pretty is the flower arrangement? An event planner dropped it off after an event finished up outside of work and now I get to use it to make my pictures much more springy.
