Are Expensive Lip Scrubs Better than DIYs?

"Beauty, Lips, Makeup, Uncategorized"

[gallery ids="878,879" type="square" columns="2"] As someone who has chronically chapped lips, I was extremely excited to try this lip scrub! I was really hoping this would be my lip-saver. This lip scrub is from fresh and it is called Sugar Lip Polish ($24). The directions say to massage a small amount onto the lips and then wipe it off with a damp washcloth. It can be used 2-3x a week. Here are my opinions on this product: I like that it makes my lips feel smooth afterwards. It also makes my lips plump (but that's expected because of the exfoliation). I don't like that it doesn't get all of the dead skin off of my lips. There is still some flakiness afterwards. Also, while it does feel smooth, it doesn't feel moisturized. Overall, I…

Blogger Recognition Award

"Uncategorized"

Thank you to BeautyMommies for nominating me for this award. Their blog has some cool posts so make sure to click this link and check them out! How I Started: I've wanted to have my own beauty and fashion blog for years but I was scared of what people would say. When I started grad school I decided to make my blog because I got a fresh start with new people so I didn't really care what anyone had to say about me. I got over the fear of other people's opinions. My best friend also supported me a lot and encouraged me and motivated me to do it. He comments on all my blogs as Superman <3 haha. Advice to Other Bloggers: Consistency is key. Blog about what you love and are passionate…

The Hunt for the Best Dry Shampoo

"Beauty, hair, Uncategorized"

Dry shampoo is a must-have if you're someone like me who washes their hair every 2-3 days. Initially I thought dry shampoo was a myth until I finally tried it for myself and realized what a staple it is. I'm still looking for my favorite one, but here are my thoughts on the ones that I've tried so far. 1) Loreal Paris EverStyle Dry Shampoo Out of the three that I've tried, this was my least favorite. This works for like 3 minutes and then my hair is greasy again. 2) Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo This product is great for absorbing excess oil and adding volume to the hair. It's also super long lasting. This is my favorite out of the three. 3) TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo My hair…

Gerard Cosmetics-Mini Haul & Review

"Beauty, Makeup, Uncategorized"

Gerard Cosmetics is one of the online makeup brands that I absolutely love and adore! Their products are truly amazing and they always have some sort of sale going on! During their Black Friday sale I got some lipsticks, lip glosses, and a hydra-matte liquid lipstick. The one thing I hate about online shopping is choosing a color based off of their swatches. They always use fairer skinned models, so it's hard for someone darker to choose. Soooo... here are my swatches of the colors I got! From top to bottom: Rodeo Drive Lipstick Vintage Rose Lipstick Electric Rose Supreme Lip Creme Destiny Supreme Lip Creme Crystal Lipgloss Ruby Slipper Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick Lipsticks: The formula is creamy, pigmented, long-wearing, and not drying at all.. basically everything you want out of a lipstick.…

The Secret to Soft Lips with Matte Lipsticks

"Beauty, Makeup, Uncategorized"

Happy Holidays everyone! I'm posting this week's blog a little early because I'm going out of town this week. I might put some pics of my trip on my instagram so you guys can check them out if you'd like. Anyways, I swear by the product I'm about to mention!! I have super dry lips but this secret keeps them hydrated: Line lips with lip liner and fill them in if you'd like. Apply Nivea's Lip Butter all over. It's important to line your lips first because lip liner will be hard to apply after putting on this product.  Apply Matte lipstick. It's as simple as that! I've tried using regular chapstick first but my lips get super dry still. However, with this lip butter by Nivea my lips feel super soft and supple…
