Make Up For Ever Artist Eyeshadow Palette Vol 3. Florals on Medium Brown Skin

I think it goes without saying that I am a huge Make Up For Ever Fan. The Artist Eyeshadows while a tad bit pricey are to die for. I honestly think I own maybe two-thirds of the entire collection thanks to picking up both the 30th Anniversary Palette and the Cyber Monday Artist Eyeshadow Collectors Palette.  These items were limited edition collections so if you missed out on them don’t worry because Make Up For Ever has come out with three personal sized palettes containing a curated collection of Artist Eyeshadows featuring Nudes, Artistic, and the new Floral Shades pictured  below. … View Post

Pur Cosmetics Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation

So last week I shared with you swatches and thoughts on the Pur Cosmetics Cameo Contour Dual-ended Contour sticks and this week I’m bringing you even more Pur Cosmetics goodness in the form of their new Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation. Hydration is one of the top beauty trends for Spring 2016, think soft dewy skin that is usually a must on the fashion runways.   The thing that makes this foundation different from other water based foundations on the market is the fact that delivers Swiss Alps-sourced glacier water (fancy huh?) deep into the skin for optimal hydration. The Hydrafluid Water… View Post

Pur Cosmetics Cameo Contour Sticks on Medium Brown Skin

I’m always intrigued by products that come out strictly for highlighting and contouring. There are so many degrees to mastering this technique and most of it depends on the type of product you use. I typically highlight and contour with powder products because I tend to not like to use products that are super heavy, but when I’m going out for a date night with the hubs or hanging with my friends I like to use products that are a bit denser. Kind of like these Cameo Contour Dual-ended Contour Sticks by Pur Cosmetics.   Dual-ended Contour Sticks aren’t new… View Post

I am a huge fan of Nars foundations, you can check out my video review of their All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation here  so I when I received the press release that there was a new skin tint being released I jumped for joy.

So without further ado let me introduce to you to Nars VELVET MATTE SKIN TINT SPF 30 1.7oz $44 The NARS description… View Post

2016 Beauty, Fashion, and Lifestyle Goals

Okay, so you guys now  had to do an obligatory New Years Resolution Post. Last year my main resolution was to step out on faith and turn my blog into more of a lifestyle blog. I succeeded in this and had so many amazing opportunities come my way. I traveled to New Orleans, worked with some amazing brands, and even started a business called Broke on Purpose.  So, now that I’ve basically recapped 2015 let’s talk about my goals for 2016. I’m calling them goals instead of resolutions because to me the word “goals” holds more power. I’m a firm… View Post
