Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Samantha: Review

Is anyone else familiar with Jaclyn Hill? Well, her make-up tutorials and beauty advice are fantastic and she posts on YouTube fairly regularly. Whenever a new video of hers pops up in my subscription box, I drop whatever it is I’m doing and watch. ALL of the products I’ve purchased that she has recommended have been exactly as amazing as she described. From her most recent video I purchased nearly everything she mentioned during my latest trip to Sephora.  One of my favorite items I’ve purchased {due to her recommendation} is the Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Samantha.

Dior Mystic Metallics Bonne Etoile Eyeshadow: Review + Swatches

As soon as I saw this new Dior palette for fall, I knew I had to have it. The palette features five eyeshadows, four of which have a star print design on them (COME on, how perfect). I’ve never purchased a Dior palette before and I was excited to see how well the eyeshadows performed. Quite honestly I do not own many Dior products in general. I wish I owned more, but the price tags tend to make me second guess how much I truly need more make-up. This time, Dior won!  The palette well exceeded my expectations! The shades…
