Milani has easily been one of my favorite drugstore brands since I discovered their baked blushes. For drugstore prices, they deliver high-quality products with an extensive color range and high-end packaging. I was beyond thrilled when I found out they were releasing a collection of individual eyeshadows. The collection, Bella Eyes, is a line of thirty gel powder eyeshadows. I’ve never heard of gel powder eyeshadows before so I was obviously intrigued. What that means is the shadows were originally formulated as gels but then transformed into powder. This unique formula makes for weightless, vibrant eyeshadows that can be used…

Laqa & Co. Lip Lube Pencils

I think by now my readers know what a huge fan I am of the brand, Laqa & Co. This week I am taking over their Instagram page, and I’ve had the opportunity to try their new Lip Lube Pencils.

Breaking news: I now have ombre hair! My cousin and fabulous hairstylist did an amazing job and I seriously have never been more in love with my own hair. My hair is pretty unruly and I tend to just throw it up in a messy bun, but I love the ombre so much I’ve been putting more effort into styling it everyday.

I spend an awful lot of time outdoors during the…

Top Five Favorite Essie Polishes

I’ll never forget the first time I ever tried Essie Nail Polish; I was young girl at the nail salon with my mom about to get one of my first manicures for a family wedding. The salon we went to had a giant wall filled with every Essie polish you could imagine and I was in complete awe. As a little girl and even now, Essie is my go-to brand for nail polish. They have one of the most extensive ranges of polish imaginable and for about $8 a bottle you get high-end quality for a drugstore price. Narrowing my…
