OOTD & Beauty Reviews!

Sooo I usually only do one product review or ootd at once, but I’m so jazzed about it all that I just can’t wait!

Let’s start with today’s ensemble :)
I’m a big fan of wearing comfy & casual clothing, but dressing it up. One of my favorite things to do lately is wear a loose-fitting, super soft top with my skinny jeans. Top it off with some awesome jewelry, and you have a stylish outfit!
Here’s what I put together…

Top, necklace, & earrings – Forever 21
Jeans – PacSun
Ring – Nordstrom
I’m also wearing some black gladiator sandals with gold accents that I didn’t get a picture of because I need a pedicure hehe
Btw I love this top! It’s so amazingly soft & comfy!

Now on to the makeup reviews!

The first product I would like to talk about is my new MAC lipstick. I have never owned a MAC lipstick before, but I was feeling daring & wanted to treat myself :) I wanted a shade that I could use for every occasion, and I FOUND IT! It’s called “Grande Dame” and it has a rosey pink, very feminine, but not crazy bright or dark color. I think this is the absolute perfect lip shade for me.

This lipstick also feels AMAZING on. Very silky & moisturizing. Not sticky or chalky at all. And I MUST mention the fact that the tube has a magnetic closure. Do all the MAC lipsticks have this?? Love it.

For my second & last product of the day (which I’m so excited about) I have Too Faced’s Chocolate Soleil bronzer. I was in Sephora, bought an eyeliner, had enough Beauty Insider points to get a delux sample, so I chose this one because I knew it was new. (And why not?!)
I was very impressed with this product. First of all, it smells like cocoa! This is of course because it’s infused with cocoa powder. SAY WHAT?! …yep. Pretty awesome. Love the shade & texture. Felt almost creamy when I put it on…. but not? It’s just very smooth haha A must-try!

Here’s a close-up of both of the products together…

Perfectly Posh Sample-fest | Part 1

Hello lovelies!
Yesterday, I received a nifty little package full of Perfectly Posh samples that I can try out just for all of you!!

20140528-114515-42315177.jpg

I got SO many that I can’t possibly review them all at once. So here’s Part 1 of my sample-fest from Perfectly Posh :)

So, I naturally went straight for whatever I could put on my lips. My first sample is called Make-out Magic. Intrigued? You should be.
Make-out Magic is a sugar lip scrub that smells fantastic. Almost like Orange Julius. You simply put a dab on your lips & then rub your lips together or massage your lips with your finger. It seriously has sugar in it, so you can just lick it off when you’re done or wipe it off with a tissue like I did (even tho it really was tasty). And BOOM! Soft lips, ready for the kissin’.

The next sample I picked up was for my hair. It’s called Stare At My Hair Argan Oil Smoothing Hair Serum with Anti-Frizz. Not sure if that is ALL in the actual name… That’s just what it says on the packaging. Looking at my hair, I thought it could use some nourishment. I had never used an Argan Oil before, but I really liked this one. The smell gives off a high-end, salon professional-ish scent. I really enjoyed that. It definitely smoothed my hair nicely, tamed my frizz, & left my hair shiny & soft. I only wish I had more of it!! Here’s a before & after:

I didn’t put any filters on this image so you can get the full effect. My hair is sleeker, the waves are more defined, & it looks healthier overall.

If you would like to buy any of these products or check out what else Perfectly Posh has to offer (which is a lot), follow this link. My Posh consultant, Brandie, really makes you feel special & puts some TLC in every package.

Enjoy until Part 2!!

Review: La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipe

La Fresh – Travel Lite
Makeup Remover Wipe

20140509-124859.jpg
I got this wipe in a beauty bag I ordered from Hautelook.com. I had just modeled in a fashion show and needed some serious bad makeup damage control, so I decided to give this wipe a test drive. This is what I looked like with all my makeup on (brace yourself)…

20140509-125143.jpg
Hope you’re not too scared to see more. It will get easier to watch. Here is after removing half of my makeup with the La Fresh wipe…

20140509-125332.jpg
Awesome, right?? Didn’t take long at all for the wipe to break down the makeup and leave my face nice & clean. Now, here’s after removing all makeup…

20140509-125514.jpg
20140509-125534.jpg
Back to normal!
This wipe didn’t leave any makeup behind, nor did I feel oily like some removers leave you. My skin felt soft and not like it was striping my face of moisture either. I even woke up with my skin feeling refreshed! I wish I would have had more than one! Definitely recommend for an on-the-go makeup remover! :)
