Current Beauty Tryouts #2 | Morphe MB Brushes, 15CON, 9BZ and 35N Palettes*

Hello lovelies! I am back today with another 'Currently Trying' post. I love doing these posts because I can share with you guys my thoughts on products I am currently trying, just in case they never make it to a review or favorites post. Today, I am sharing with you some products I received from Morphe to try. If you've been reading my blog for a while, then you know I love Morphe's products. I did a post about their brushes, and I also did a full review on their famous 35O palette. So far I have loved everything I've tried so I was very excited to try out these new products! Although I appreciate that Morphe sent me all these products, my thoughts on these products are my own and totally unbiased. So let's begin!

As a beauty blogger, there are many products I talk about on my blog, some of them I hate, and others I love. Also as a reader, many bloggers talk about new and old makeup products. There are so many amazing products are there, and a lot of them get very hyped up, whether it's on a blog or on YouTube. Today, I'm sharing my personal high-end products that I think are worth the hype. These are products that are very hyped up on the internet, but for good reason. I love all of these products and if I ever finish them, I will be very quick to run out and repurchase it.

I shared on Instagram last week that I received my Sephora Play Box this month, and now I'm going to share what I got inside! The Sephora Play Box is a subscription service from Sephora for $10 a month, and you get 5-7 deluxe samples, a cute drawstring bag and an insert telling you all about the products inside. I love this month's bag! The wink is super cute and I will definitely find a use for this.

Current Primer Rotation

I think primers make a huge difference in the way my makeup looks, feels and applies on the skin. I feel like a few years ago primer wasn't even a 'thing', but here we are with so many different types of primers that do so many things. Currently in my collection I have high-end and drugstore primers, that range from smoothing, to mattifying to pore minimizing. I have oily skin and large pores, so you won't be seeing any hydrating products in my collection. I mostly need a primer to help keep my matte and help my makeup stay on all day. Please let me know in the comments what your favorites primers are so I can check them out!

The Best Travel Palettes

Happy Sunday everyone! The weekend is here, and I love going on road trips and traveling to friends and family on the weekend. One of the struggles of traveling for a makeup addict like myself is packing all the makeup I need, but with the least amount of products. For that, I have my go-to travel palettes, whether it's an all-in-one eyeshadow palette, a complete face palette, or a face/eye palette to really get the job done.

So if you're like me and can't/do not want to buy a real camera, I have some great tips for you on how you can beautiful pictures for your blog on your phone.

I'm sure, like many of you, I have so many mascaras opened at the same time. In my opinion, mascaras are the products that go the fastest. So I am constantly opening and trying new mascaras. Currently, in my opened-mascara-collection, I have a mix of high end and drugstore mascaras, and I also have some primers/top coats I am currently using. I also thought I would mix up this post a little and divide the mascaras by the Good, Bad and Ugly. Some of these mascaras are my holy grail, while others I will definitely be trashing after writing this post. Keep reading for all the details!

Everyday Summer Makeup Look | Long Wearing + Sweatproof

Everyday Summer Makeup Look | Long Wearing + Sweatproof
Happy Sunday everyone! With the summer coming to an end (sadly!), I wanted to share my sweatproof makeup look. Now, this isn't a look to wear to the beach or the pool. But if you're going somewhere on a hot summer day or night, these are products you can trust to last. I tend to have oily skin, and when it's hot, I sweat like no other, so these are products are 'tried and true' that work for my skin.

Nordstrom Sale Haul | Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel and MAC 'Look in a Box- Sunblessed' | #NSale

Hello all! I posted a couple of weeks ago some upcoming deals for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and today I wanted to share with you a mini haul! In that post, I mentioned many items on my wishlist, and also some of my personal recommendations. I actually picked up one item from each of those lists, and I've very excited to tell you about them!

I don't shop much as Nordstrom, but I love that they have free shipping on every order. Also, since I signed up for their Nordstrom rewards program before July 10th, I was able to get a $10 off coupon to use during the sale. I also built up points on this purchase, which will go towards another $20 coupon when I reach 2,000 points.

Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in 'Fairy Floss' and 'Tight Fit' | Review + Swatches

Hello! I am back today to review the new Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lips (AKA lipglosses). Colourpop as a brand has been making a huge presence in the makeup community for the past year or so, and are constantly coming out with new products. Their products are so amazing and affordable that I always try to pick up some things when they release new products. I mentioned these new lip glosses on my Instagram when I first got the package in the mail- I couldn't contain my excitement! I've been trying these two shades for a week or so and I think I can safely say that I can give my thoughts.
