Easy DIY Lipstick Organization for Your Makeup Holder

You ever walk into a room and notice a mess and say to yourself ” I really need to clean that up.”? I do it almost daily, especially in my blogging room. I consider my blogging room this special room where when things are all over the place I know just where they are and as soon as I clean it up and have everything looking nice and neat I just can’t seem to find anything. Last week, I showed you all how I did a budget makeover on our living room which turned out absolutely amazing (pats myself on…

NARS Cosmetics WildFire Collection, Soft Matte Complete Concealers, and New Primers Reviews

This is going to be a rather picture heavy post, let me just warn you of that up front in case you’re all “dang Melody”. This post is going to encompass three separate collections that NARS Cosmetics released this winter. First up is the Spring 2017 Color Collection called Wildfire, followed by the Soft Matte Complete Concealer, and then the new Nars Primers!  WildFire Collection The NARS Spring 2017 Color Collection aptly named Wildfire brings us out of dreariness of winter into a world of beautiful color reminiscent of hues that remind me of subdued tropical florals. If anything is going to…

Living Room Make Over On a Budget with Target Style and H&M Home

After almost a two year hiatus the Home Decor bug has hit me again. There are sooo many things I’d love to be able to do to our home, you know like upgrading our 1950’s pink and black bathroom, but as we continue to tackle our student loans we just don’t have the additional $10K contractors are asking for to completely redo it.  We’ll see in theory we do, but I’d more rather be debt free than have a pretty bathroom to use. The first room I decided to do a mini makeover on was our living room because I…

Get LIP SCRUBTIOUS with MAC Cosmetics *Reveiw*

Is it wrong to say that I wasn’t interested in the MAC Lip Scrubtious when I first heard about it? I mean in my head I assumed it was just another sugar scrub and we’ve all seen plenty of Pinterest tutorials on how to make your own at home. To me, lip scrubs should be an essential part of any one’s beauty routine, especially if you plan on wearing a matte lipstick or during the winter months. Lip scrubs do more than just help to remove all that dead unflattering skin from the lips, but also add back in essential oils…

You Need to Add at Least One Mac Retro Matte Lipstick to Your Collection!

I honestly can’t believe I’m about to say this but er umm. I’m in love with these MAC Retro Matte lipsticks!! When Retro Matte was first released, I didn’t grab any because I’d drastically cut back on the amount on makeup I was purchasing and was more focused on skincare. Lucky for me MAC released twelve new Retro Matte lipsticks in an array of neutral shades that will either be screaming YESS or leave you questioning your color choices.  MAC sent over five shades of the Retro Matte lipsticks to Being Melody Headquarters for me to try out and I…

L’Oreal Infallible Paints Lip Color Review and Swatches on Medium Brown Skin

2017 is going to be a big year for me as I will finally be graduating with my doctorate. I don’t think it hit me until last Monday when I realized that it was all finally coming to an end and anxiety bomb rushed me. I feel like now I’m just a huge ball of “what next?”. I’m walking around with a fake smile on my face when I’m slowly dying inside with fear of the unknown.  Times like these I’m so glad I have Being Melody as an outlet to escape all that. It’s the little things that make…
