Review: Tarte Tres Chic Park Ave Princess Contour Palette

I'm not sure if this is limited edition or if Tarte is going to make this part of their permanent collection. I've been seeing this on sale at both Ulta and Sephora... which hints to limited edition, yet I've seen this in stock pretty regularly. I would say if you're interested in this and if the price is right, go for it! Now is the time!


ipsy Glam Bag - December 2014

Last ipsy bag of the year and it's not bad. I haven't really got around to trying everything but initial impressions are good. The bag roughly values $50 in product. The Renewing Eye Cream isn't even on the market yet. Each item looks very promising and I already own the mascara and lip balm, which both preform well. 


Elf Holiday Haul!

Oh nelly, I went a little cray cray. Elf has a 50% off sale a couple weeks back... I finally got all the  goodies that I had been eying, also while stocking up on some favorites. One of the products I got unfortunately got damaged in the shipping process. I contacted Elf and they are replacing and shipping me a new one for free! Such wonderful customer service. Thanks Elf!


Haul/Review: EM Comestics

Cyber Monday EM Cosmetics had a 50% off sale. This is what finally temped me to try out EM Cosmetics. Michelle Phan created the makeup line and as intriguing as it was there were many reasons that stopped me from placing an order. Since it being an online store it requires you to read many reviews and taking that leap of faith.


Tarte: Chic to Cheek Deluxe Amazonian Clay Blush Set

I want to apolginze up front. I started this blog entry weeks back before finals. Coming back to this I've found that it seems this set is sold... You may be able to come across this at a Ulta store or it's possible Tarte.com will restock. Again, I'm sorry. I hate posting about items that you can't even get anymore. Bugs me when bloggers or vloggers do that! Since I did start this I do want to still finish posting it. I hope you'll understand. It's just so disappointing how this happens. Makeup companies will release their holiday sets/products as early September and then come time for holiday shopping its impossible to find or you have to pay hiked up prices on amazon/ebay. 


Review & Swatches: Too Faced - Melted Kisses

Too Faced - Melted Kisses $25
I just haven't really jumped on this liquid lipstick train yet. When I saw that Too Faced made this really adorable holiday set I decided to give it a try. I got my set from Sephora. I often see it go in and out of stock on the Sephora and Ulta website. I've often seen this in stock at my local Sephora. None of these shades are limited edition. They are all in the permanent line, so I linked to that above.


Review: NARS Almeria Blush

NARS Almerĺa Blush $30
This is one of those products I had no intention of purchasing until I swatched it in the store. And ahhhh my gawd, I fell in lurve. NARS describes this as "tan rose". It comes off as a browny-red with subtle shimmer. The packaging is effectively the same as every other NARS blush. The cover is accented with a special holiday design that resembles... spider webs or lace? Take your pick!


Review/Haul: Sonia Kashuk - Velvety Matte Lip Crayons & More

I saw a YouTuber review these and I knew I had to have them in my life! I never knew these Velvety Matte Lip Crayons existed. I really want to go back to Target and pick up all the shades! As you will see below, things got a little outta control. 6 lip products in one shopping trip? Yup, that just happened.
