The Sale You Don’t Want to Miss | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Beauty, Nordstrom

What’s the Scoop:

Every summer, lo and behold, Nordstrom has their anniversary sale. Sadly, I’m not a cardholder, matter of fact, I don’t even have a credit card. I’m a huge believer of “if I don’t have the money, I’m not buying it!” So I’m an unlucky one who doesn’tย get to shop the sale early, but the world hasn’t stopped spinning right?ย This year, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale runs from July 13-July 20 for cardholders and runs from July 21-August 6, so make that money in the meantime.

Save or Toss? Make-Up Expirations Exposed

Beauty, Make-Up

Hi Everyone! Today’s post revolves around an infographic I created due to the amount of questions I receive from clients and my readers regarding makeup and how often products should be tossed and replaced. If you’re interested, please scroll and keep on reading ๐Ÿ™‚

If you haven’t cleaned out your make-up bag recently, it’s time to do some spring cleaning to make sure you’re not applying expired products on your face. When going through your makeup bag, or should I say makeup stash? I know many of you have drawers filled with products… I promise, I’m not judging since i’m definitely guilty of hoarding makeup.

Le Metier de Beaute Moisture Matte Lip Crรฉmes Review

Beauty, La Metier De Beaute, Make-Up

Hi Everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your holiday season & new year celebrations! I needed some time off after taking my finals — thankfully I graduate in May! So let’s just get straight into the review! Today’s post is all about lip cremes!

The lip crรฉmes launched some time ago & I believe they offer 12 shades. These are beautiful– I’m loving the formula, but I think the price tag is a little steep, however, this is a luxury brand being sold at Neiman Marcus. If you’ve ever purchased a product from this line, you know the performance is amazing, however, I can understand if that doesn’t justify the tag. To be honest, I’m a college student ballin’ on a budget & I wouldn’t spend $42 on a lip product (it’s pricy & I’d much rather splurge on skincare or a product for highlighting).

Master Palette by Mario- Photos & Review

Anastasia Beverly Hills, Beauty

Hey Everyone! Thank you for tuning in as always.ย Today’s post is another product review & I’m covering the newest & hottest Anastasia Beverly Hills release!ย It’s the Anastasia Beverly Hills collaboration with Mario Dedivanovic, many of you may know him as Kim Kardashian’s make-up artist! He has been working in the beauty industry for over a decade & I adore his effortlessly clean looks– so I purchased the palette as soon as it released because it is limited edition & I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity, plus it’s a stunning and extremely wearable palette!

img_7504This is a warm-toned palette including 12 eye shadows ranging from matte to shimmer & retails for $45.00. Each shadow pan has .02 oz of product so easily justified at $3.75 per eye shadow. However, you also get a dual-ended shadow brush & there is a mirror within the palette, so that’s an extra bonus. The packaging indicates that the shelf-life is only 6 months, so make note of that.ย  Continue Reading
