Urban Decay Naked HEAT Swatches & Review

URBAN DECAY dropped a bombshell on the beauty world not long ago by launching their newest “Naked” palette, part of the uber-popular Naked series of palettes, ironically, meant to be neutral or flesh-toned. It’s called the Urban Decay Naked HEAT palette, and it’s on fire. As the popularity of Naked 1 and 2 began to soar, however, the brand expanded the range to include much more than just flesh-toned pretties. Naked 3 was a rosey themed palette at the height…

My Umstead Spa Experience

About a week ago I had the most amazing spa experience of my life. ¬†I haven’t been one much for facials or spa treatments in the past, mostly because I couldn’t bear to spend that much money on myself. ¬†But when I was treated to a very generous gift card to the Umstead Spa from my CRNA’s at my place of work for Christmas, I browsed the treatment menu for months trying to decide which experience I would indulge in.…

The Most Finely Milled Bronzer?

I’m so impressed with this bronzer purchase. Lord knows I didn’t need another bronzer–after buying the Tom Ford bronzer I actually probably¬†should put it in my will to bequeath to offspring.

It turns out this bronzer, which comes in two shades (I chose the lightest), is super¬†super finely milled. It’s super powdery…

Clinique’s Winning Hybrid Foundation Brush

But I soon realized that these were organic, genuine reactions to a singular product. I had to see what the fuss¬†was about. A bit of a background, though: normally I don’t spend a lot of money on makeup brushes. I’ve been a believer for some time now that wallet-friendly products can do great things for…

My New Favorite Body Cream

Clinique snuck up on me with this one. As I was browsing the aisles of my local¬†Ulta¬†store, as you do, I was actually looking for the buff brush that so many bloggers have been raving about, when this little beauty caught my eye. The display held a trio of body souffl√©s¬†called Clinique Happy Gelato Cream for Body, and this was the first scent I picked up. It also happened to be the standout favorite of the three. The scent is…

Lush Halloween Collection

LUSH is a fantastic place to visit when it’s autumn because their Halloween (fall) special edition bath products are highly sought after and frequently sold out before All Hallow’s Eve. Luckily I got sent a few treats from LUSH and I’m excited to share them with you! This new bath bomb, called Monsters Ball, smells of fruity lime and neroli perfume, starts off tingeing your bath with pink froth then settling into deep murky blue below. Lord of Misrule is…
