  • Gift Guide: Tarte

    Continuing my holiday gift guide, this year’s offerings from tarte are a nice mix. I was sent the blush palette a few months ago and I’ve been absolutely loving it. I love when my favorite products get put into one palette of goodness–and the tarte Amazonian Clay blushes are probably my favorite formulation of blush ever. Super long lasting, the perfect amount of pigmentation, great colors…what’s there not to love?

    November Favorites

    This month’s favorites was kind of all over the place–likely because, indeed I myself was all over the place. It was quite the busy month, consisting of obstetric anesthesia day in and day out. I was in the hospital on Thanksgiving day for 24 hours. Cray! Despite the hectic schedule, I managed to have a good amount of favorites for you guys!

    What’s in My Bag & Makeup Bag

    Every so often here on my blog and my YouTube channel, you’ll find that I share the contents of my handbag. This time of year it’s no different, and I am excited to share that this video was filmed to be interactive – you can click through the video to see what’s in my makeup bag as well! If you’re on a mobile device it won’t be interactive, so for your convenience I’ve included the makeup bag video below.

    NARS Audacious & Hardwired Holiday Collection

    I have had the incredible pleasure of trying some more of the NARS Audacious lipsticks (in Barbara, Vera, and Vivien) and am oohing and aahing over the packaging for the Holiday 2014 “Hardwired” color collection. There’s a gorgeous fall-appropriate blush called Almería (a tan rose color appropriate for most skin tones). There’s also an amazing glittering dark green eyeshadow flecked with gold and light green glitter called Gabon.

    My Holiday Wishlist

    I’ll be the first to admit, my Christmas lists since I was twelve read more like the table of contents of Robb Report. I’ve always been a girl with caviar dreams, but that doesn’t discourage me from admiring–or coveting. In fact, I think of it as aspirational–motivation to succeed! The carrot at the end of the stick!

    Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon

    Can you tell I’ve been obsessed with lips lately? In case you’ve been under a rock, check out this post and this post (and then come back here, ‘kay?). I featured this amazing matte lip crayon in my October favorites, but I thought it deserved its own moment in the spotlight. This is such a lightweight, non-drying (hallelujah) matte lip color. Creamier than a lip pencil, and only slightly less long-wearing, this is a new favorite matte formulation for me. I especially…
