I can't believe July is over! This month has really flown by, and with that, I have many favorites to share with you. July was really a great month because I got to do some traveling, it was my birthday month and I spent a lot of time with friends and family. Many of my favorites this month are basic products I use and love every day, but never seem to mention in any of my posts. Some of these products, as I will mention, are my holy grail products that I use every single time I do my makeup.

Best Drugstore Eyeshadow Palette? | Milani 'Must Have Naturals' Eyeshadow Palette Review

Best Drugstore Eyeshadow Palette? | Milani 'Must Have Naturals' Eyeshadow Palette Review
If you know me and my blog, then you know that I have very strong feelings towards drugstore eyeshadows. Probably 95% of my eyeshadows are high end because I feel like drugstore eyeshadows and palettes always disappoint me. But, surprisingly, the Milani 'Must Have Naturals' Eyeshadow Palette really impressed me. 

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush Duo | Prosecco Pop and Pamplemousse | Review + Swatches

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush Duo | Prosecco Pop and Pamplemousse | Review + Swatches
If you've been reading my blog for a while then you know that I am a huge Jaclyn Hill fan. When she came out with 'Champagne Pop' with Becca, I was obsessed. 'Champagne Pop' today is one of my all time favorite highlighters, and to be honest, I would buy almost anything with Jaclyn Hill's name on it. When Jaclyn came out with her collection with Becca, the face palette they created was not something I was ready to spend the money on. It was a gorgeous palette, but I didn't feel like I needed a huge palette for $52. But when they came out with the split pans, I was stoked! I really wanted to try 'Prosecco Pop' (the second highlighter Jaclyn created with Becca) and Becca's mineral blushes. Today, I will be reviewing the Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush Duo in 'Prosecco Pop' and 'Pamplemousse'.

Sephora Play Box | July 2016

Sephora Play Box | July 2016

If there is one beauty subscription I would recommend to all of you, it would be Sephora Play Box. For a flat fee of $10 a month, you will get five deluxe samples, plus a bonus fragrance sample. How could you possibly go wrong? It took a while for the Sephora Play Box subscription to open up to everyone, so July's box will be my third box, and I thought I would share with you what I got! For me, each month gets better and better, so this box is by far the best.

Mini Brows | Benefit Brow Collection Review | Worth The Hype?

Mini Brows | Benefit Brow Collection Review |  Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil  Benefit Browvo! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer  Benefit Ka-Brow! Eyebrow Cream-Gel Color
Hello everyone! I'm sure everyone and their mother has been hearing about Benefit's new brow products. In the past month or so Benefit has relaunched their entire brow line, and all beauty lovers have been going crazy over it.

Yes, the packaging is probably the cutest you can get with a brow product, but to me, there didn't seem to be anything revolutionary. Like many other makeup brands, they had brow pencils, tinted gels and a pomade.

Travel Essentials | Beauty and More

Travel Essentials | Beauty and More
Good day everyone!

I have come to hate traveling a little less the past few years. It's the worst when I have to travel alone, anyone else feel like this?? I think the reason why I don't mind traveling as much is because I have my set routine of how I pack and I know exactly what I'll need on the plane. I get to my seat, settle in, put on some music, and try to sleep as much as possible!

I am away traveling this week and in honor of that, I thought I would do a travel-themed post. This time around I will be flying and there are certain things I like to have with me when I fly. Of course this is not everything I have with me when I travel- I always overpack my carry on! But these are my essentials that I cannot travel without.

My Liquid Lipstick Collection

My favorite liquid lipsticks: Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in 'Child Star'  Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick in 'Iconic Iris'  Tarte Creamy Matte Lip Paint in 'Namaste'  Colourpop Matte Lip in 'Trap'  Colour Satin Lip in 'Littlestitious'  Colourpop Matte Lip in 'Midi'  NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in 'Lace Detail'  Revlon Ultra HD Matte in 'Seduction'
Let's face it, liquid lipstick has become a huge trend this year. As a result, I have built up quite a collection. Now it's all about the metallic lip, but I've yet to try any! I've been trying out many different formulas, so I thought I would share my thoughts on the ones I have in my collection.

P.S how is everyone feeling about my new photo background? I'm still working on the lighting and the product arrangement.

Review + Swatches | Lorac Pro 3 Palette

Review | Lorac Pro 3 Palette

Hello! If you love Lorac shadows, I hope you're excited to read this post! The Lorac Pro 3 palette is a new item out this month, and when I saw these shades, I knew I had to have it. The shades in the Lorac Pro 2 palette were not really up my ally, but I instantly fell in love with this palette when I saw it online. The Lorac Pro shadows have never disappointed me, and this one is no different.

The Esteé Edit | Influenster Unboxing*

The Esteé Edit | Influenster Unboxing: Flash Illuminator in 'Sun Light 04' Beam Team Hydrate + Glow The Barest Lip Color in 'Nude Mauve' Pore Vanishing Stick

I am so excited to be sharing this post with you guys today! I've been part of Influenster for a few months now and I never thought I would have the chance to receive a box like this. For those of you who don't know what Influenster is, it's a website where you fill out surveys about food, beauty and health. They then have different boxes/campaigns that they will send you for free to try if they think you are a good match. So when I saw I would be receiving a boxed filled with The Esteé Edit products by Esteé Lauder, I was ecstatic! This is my first time trying something from this line, and I can't wait to try more!
