NARS v. E.L.F. Cosmetics: Blush Dupe Guide

As I mentioned in many previous posts, I love a good make-up dupe or alternative! While my MAC Lipstick Dupe Guide is still in progress, I thought I’d take a break & round up some great alternatives for a few NARS blush favorites. NARS blushes have become a staple in my make-up collection, but E.L.F. has created pretty comparable versions. NARS blushes retail for $29, while E.L.F. blushes are only $3. It’s a great alternative for someone on a tighter budget, or just interested in trying a different line.  NARS Desire – E.L.F. Pink Passion; NARS Deep Throat – E.L.F. Candid…

Milani Baked Blushes: Review + Swatches

In May, I reviewed the Milani Baked Blushes, but I decided to do a new post to provide further details and better pictures. I loved them immediately, then became bored with them, and now recently re-discovered why I fell in love to begin with. As I mentioned previously, they are most comparable to MAC’s Mineralized Blushes, but at a more reasonable price point. In my opinion, I think they may even be more pigmented.  Luminoso appears as a light coral on the skin. There is so much hype surrounding this product and deservingly so! To me, it seems like luminoso is…

Allison Williams: Emmy’s Hair & Make-Up

I know the question on my mind today is what did Allison Williams do to achieve such a flawless look last night? The actress played up her natural beauty and looked absolutely stunning. Luckily, Hollywood Life had the opportunity to speak to both her hair stylist and make-up artist to find out exactly what products were used.  Products Used: 1. Dove Whipped Cream Mousse  2. Dove Extra Hold Hair Spray 3. Oribe Apres Beach 4. Sally Hershberger Glam Waves 5. Simple Skincare Hydrating Light Moisturizer 6. Cargo HD Picture Perfect Pore Refining Primer 7. Cargo HD Picture Perfect Eye Shadow…

ABCs of MAC Lipstick Dupes

Since my dupe series was such a hit, I decided to expand on the idea. Instead of simply providing you with random MAC dupes, I’ve decided to create an A-Z series of popular MAC lipsticks and alternatives/dupes for each. This series took a lot of research and patience, but I am so thrilled to share it with you. Rather than throw A-Z at you all at once, I’m going to post the graphics little by little. The first set of the series will be “A + B” (naturally). Stay tuned for the rest of the series! xo
