Review & Swatches: Melt Cosmetics She's in Parties Eyeshadow Stack

I'm such a massive fan of the Melt Cosmetics eyeshadows that I couldn't resist getting the She's in Parties Eyeshadow Stack. I've also been trying to get into purples and this fit perfectly into what I wanted. The stack comes with two mattes and two "dimensional foil" shades that compliment each other so well. This stack contains 13.85 grams / 0.48 ounces of product and retails for $48 on the Melt Cosmetics website here.

My Kind of Nude Lipsticks

I've never really been a nude lipstick person until maybe 2 years ago? Even now when looking at my nude or MLBB choices, they're darker than the typical skin tone lipstick. Light nudes or the ones that match my skin tone make me look really washed out and so I gravitate towards darker non-beige based nude lipsticks. 

I personally categorize all of these shades as part of my nude lipstick collection but they also fall under the brown, mauve, or orange categories as well.

What's In My Travel Makeup Bag!

For Thanksgiving, I'll be out of town for about a week and so I'm trying to make sure that I bring enough makeup for most occasions but I'm also trying not to bring my whole collection. I'm planning this post ahead of time and so there's probably a 80% chance that I'll bring more things than what I've listed.

My absolute must have favorites for every occasion are unsurprising - Glossier Stretch Concealer in Medium and Boy Brow in Brown, Pony Sharping Brown Definer, and Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Waterproof Mascara in Very Black. If you follow my Instagram page, I post a lot of eye looks and these four products are in almost all of them. Since I do mention these products a lot, I'm not going to expand on them in this post since it's already a super long one.

I also use the Glossier products so much that I was invited to be a Glossier Rep (smooooooth transition, Hao). If you would like to support me by using my affiliate rep link, please click here! You can get 20% off your first purchase as well as free shipping with orders including 2 or more products.

[GIVEAWAY] Red Lip Picks ft. Bobbi Brown, Pony Effect, and Bite Beauty

As repeatedly stated, I'm a huge red lipstick lover. I also feel like I annually put out a red lipstick post as well but this time, I'm focusing on three formulas I've really enjoyed throughout this year with a bonus giveaway! I photographed using my own products, but the products in the giveaway are brand new.

Shining Brightly With The Maybelline Matte Metallics

I recently received the Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipsticks in Smoked Silver and Molten Bronze* for free from Influenster and I tried so hard to be creative and fun with them, but I ended up with basic full face swatches. I'm going to be doing a mini review at the end of this post, but I'm not really a fan of this formula. They do retail for about $7 and so they're affordable and easy to play with, but I don't plan on using them a lot outside of fun makeup looks at home.

Feeling Minnie and Cute with The Saem

So, I went a bit crazy when the Disney x The Saem collection came out with all of their Mickey and Minnie Mouse products. Some items were new, but a lot of them were repackaged with the special packaging. Considering that I have a very weak spot for Mickey and Minnie Mouse and don't have a lot of The Saem products, I very happily loaded up my shopping cart on Jolse. This post is just going to include my haul and first impressions but let me know if you want a full review of any of these products!

Review & Swatches: Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Starstruck and Trippin

Fenty Beauty is probably the brand I've been the most excited about in years. Rihanna's IDGAF attitude is something I aspire to have one day and I absolutely love her makeup and fashion choices. They might not always be for me, but she always looks so beautiful. Once she announced her makeup line, I knew I definitely wanted to pick up some things no matter what they were. 

I originally picked up the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Starstruck and trio in Medium (Bamboo, Mocha, and Trippin) but ended up returning the trio and getting Trippin just by itself. Each Match Stix contains 0.25 ounches / 7.10 grams of product and retails for $25 on the Sephora website here.

Worn In Perfection ft. The Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colors

One of my newest and favorite discoveries is the Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colors. While I like a full opaque lip color, I'm also really into the worn / lived in lipstick look as well. When this new formula was released, I was so excited and immediately went to swatch every single color. I really had to hold myself back from buying all of my favorites. Bobbi Brown describes the Crushed Lip Colors as the ultimate swipe and go formula with the feel of a balm and I got to say - I agree wholeheartedly! The full sized lip stick contains 3.4 grams / 0.12 ounces of product and retails for $29 from the below websites -
