Smashbox Product Roundup #2

Hey everyone!

As you all know by now, I love Smashbox Cosmetics! Their items always deliver, and they have some of the prettiest colors out there in the beauty world! Recently, I was sent a couple items to try and review for you all, so let's get started!

Smashbox Cosmetics' Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss in Infinite - $22.00

This lip gloss is a gorgeous golden nude shade that looks beautiful over any lipstick or by itself. The formulation is a tad sticky, but that just means it lasts on your lips a lot longer. There's no rule that says you have to wear darker shades just because its the fall season!

Here is what Smashbox has to say:

Get gorgeous color and shine for up to 6 hours with this super silky lip gloss! The contoured wand hugs lips for a comfortable one coat application.

Beauty Tip:

Generously apply on bare lips for gorgeous color and shine that lasts.

Smashbox Cosmetics' 15 Hour Wear Cream Shadow in Quartz - $20.00

 I have started a love affair with cream eye shadows lately, so I was extremely happy to try out one from Smashbox! This eye shadow glides on with ease, sets within a minute, and stays put all day! I love to wear Quartz alone for a hint of sparkle, or layer a matching eye shadow on top to really jazz it up.

Here is what Smashbox has to say:

Developed in our studios to take long-wearing color to the next level! These super luxe, super saturated shadows glide on and stay put, even through the longest photo shoots.

Beauty Tip:

Try layering darker shades over lighter ones to build definition and depth for a subtle, yet smoldering stare.

Soap & Paper Factory Presents: The Bella Collection‏

Hey everyone!

For Soap & Paper Factory, inspiration for scents in the Bella Collection came from loved ones and loved places.  Bella, a scent that combines Bergamot, Grapefruit and Black Pepper creates a citrus-flavored explosion with a bit of sass.  The scent Midnight uses Jasmine, Tuberose and Citrus aromas.  Finally, Close, a grounded and well-balanced scent features Sandalwood, Vetiver, and Oakmoss.  

I received a sample of their bar soap in Midnight, and I must say, this scent is delicious! It has a rich, dark aroma that is balanced out by sweet citrus. Perfect for the fall and winter seasons!

The collection includes products for the body and the home such as Candles ($18) and Solid Perfumes ($18). These products are natural, beautiful, recyclable, reusable, and are available on

Hey everyone!

Last night, Hailee Steinfeld walked the red carpet at the premiere of her latest film Ender’s Game. Hailee looked as glamorous as ever with help from Celebrity Makeup Artist Steven Sollitto. The Oscar nominee sported a fantastic, white sequined Yves Saint Laurent top with playful red lips, paired with tailored black pants for a polished, stunning look. 

“Nothing can be taken for granted on such a big night,” Steven explains. “So, to make sure Hailee's skin looked its best we started by using Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub to exfoliate and refine the skin. I can't express how important a clean healthy canvas is for makeup. The Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub feels fresh, lathers beautifully, and smells clean. A little attention to your skin before a big night goes a long way.”

Here are Steven’s tips for creating the look:

To make sure Hailee's skin looked its best, we started by using Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub to exfoliate and refine the skin. I can't express how important a clean healthy canvas is for makeup. The Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub feels fresh, lathers beautifully and smells clean. A little attention to your skin before a big night goes a long way. 

For moisturizer I used a Light Cream before applying a MAC Face and Body foundation, which I find works well on most women. Plus, this foundation allows me to go light or heavy depending on the area of the face. 

Originally we were going to do a wet glossy red lip to match the top. We all loved it but then thought about the longevity of the look. I didn't want her worried about her lips as she was doing interview after interview, so we used the Jouer Riviera Gloss to help mimic the sequins of her top. 

To highlight the eyes, I used purples hues to bring out the gold in her eyes. To start her eye, I brushed shadow a bronze all across her lids and underneath her bottom lashes from Votre Vu called Copper Suede. Then, in order to give her some definition at her lashes, I used NARS Gel Liner in Tatar (this is a purple that reads black to most people, but it is softer) as well as MAC's Strong Willed Pencil, which I smudged back and forth for a softer look. Next, I took a small but wide eye shadow brush and swept MAC Red Violet under her lashes and out at the corners of her eyes. I lined her inner bottom lids with Laura Mercier's Violet Pencil. Two Coats of Benefit Bad Gal Lash in Black and her eyes were ready for those flashes on the red carpet. 

On Hailee's cheeks, I can't help but use Laura Mercier's Praline Creme Cheek Blush - I just love the color. A very up-to-date choice in all its peachy apricot.

Clinique Pink with a Purpose Limited Edition Almost Lipstick Gift Set

Hey everyone!

My Sephora order just arrived today, and inside was the new Clinique With a Purpose Limited Edition Almost Lipstick Gift Set in the shade Pink Ribbon Honey! I have been waiting almost a week for this little set to get to me, and it was totally worth it! Each set cost $15.00, and $3.00 of that price went to aid breast cancer research. I think this is a great way to donate to charity.

I love the shade of this lipstick, because it works with everyone's lip color to give you a custom shade that looks natural. It's a your lips but better type of product for sure! The little cosmetic bag that is include is very nice, and would work perfectly as a mini makeup bag for any size purse. I am currently using mine as a change purse!

I am so happy that I decided to purchase two of these sets, since this product seemed like one I would love! This set would make a great birthday gift, or stocking stuffer for the holiday season. I think this set is currently sold out on Sephora's website, but keep checking to see if you can get your hands on it!


Note: I purchased this product with my own money.

NYC Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss

Hey everyone!

I'm the self proclaimed lipstick princess (I would say queen, but princess is just much more fun!). I don't have a lot of lip glosses in my collection, but I am always looking to expand upon that fact. Recently, I was sent some of NYC's Big Bold Plumping Glosses to try and review for you all.

Shades from left to right:
~Extra Large Latte
~Coral to the Max
~Voluminous Peach
~Magnified Mauve

The first thing you'll notice about these glosses is their huge sponge tip applicator! I mean it's twice the size of a regular gloss applicator, and I love it! I find it makes applying the gloss super easy and quick. The pigmentation on these glosses is very nice, and they can be easily worn alone or over a matching lipstick. I find the formulation to be thinner than your average gloss, and it does have a moderate tingling sensation once applied. Overall, I definitely recommend giving these glosses a try, and I think they would be perfect if you have a teen in your house that loves makeup.

These glosses retail for $3.99 each, and can be purchased at a wide variety of retailers.

Hey everyone!

On a recent trip to the grocery store, I saw these Softsoap Foaming Halloween Hand Soaps sitting all by their little lonesome. So, of course I had to take them home with me! These are the same designs they had last year, but I still think they're super cute! Plus, they glow in the dark!

What do you think of these festive soaps?

Bath & Body Works Fall 2013 Hand Soap Haul
