Product Crush: High Shimmer Lip Gloss

My favorite lip gloss of the moment is Bobbi Brown's High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Oyster. It's a lovely, multifaceted shade that can be worn alone, or used to pump up the volume on your favorite lip colors! I especially love Oyster paired with MAC's Nearly Nude for a subtle look, or with Bobbi Brown's Cosmic Raspberry to make a serious statement! At less than $25, it's a total steal and an effortless way to change your look! Which are your favorite glosses? Do you use lip glosses to up the ante on your fave...

Summer is in full swing. That means it’s time to transition your nail polish shades. So, bring on the brights, because summer polish is all about making a statement with a pop of color. With that in mind, here are my top picks for polish shades I’ll be keeping on heavy rotation. 1. Bright pink: My friends and family know I’ve got a soft spot for a pink nail polish. There’s something about this vibrant shade that puts a smile on my face. It’s girly. It’s fun. Plus, there’s just something about this hue that’s quintessentially...

My Summer Beauty Routine

Here in Florida, summer-like weather starts WAY earlier than June when summer officially starts. So, while some of you are still playing in the snow, I'm starting my summer beauty regimen, whether it's officially summer or not. I'm by no means bragging. I would love to trade a couple of our HOT sweltering months for your cold ones.The grass is always greener right? Haha! Ok, back to my summer beauty routine. I typically turn my thick cream moisturizer in for a lighter weight lotion. Our beauty expert has been trying to sell me on trying out...

Product Crush: Eden Allure Argan Oil

Eden Allure sent over some of their products for us to try just in time for summer. I am always a sucker for trying new oils, especially Argan!

To restore moisture to your skin, apply 1-2 drops and smooth over face and neck at night. You can also use the oil on your cuticles, body, and hair! This is a product I’ll be adding to my travel beauty essentials list because it’s...

Product Crush: EnvyDerm Lip Volumizing and Conditioning Plumper

The wonderful people over at EnvyDerm Cosmetics sent us a few of their favorite lip gloss samples to experience. I was definitely intrigued by this product, which claims to plump your lips, boost collagen and restore softness. EnvyDerm has a variety of shades from very sheer ones such as Coco, to deeper pigmented shades such as Je T’Aime, which is my fave! I used the EnvyDerm Lip Volumizing and Conditioning Plumper for several weeks and noticed that my lips were less chapped, had more volume and felt smoother. I also love that it's long wearing, has...

Red Lips Fit for Going Out on the Town

I just love bold lips and giving myself ravishing red lips is often a beauty trick I turn to when I want to amp things up, especially in the fall! I’ve always enjoyed lipstick that brightens up my face, but it’s especially important these days… Since having my beautiful baby girl a few short months ago, I’ve had a tough time getting ready for events. That lil’ lady bean of mine is totally worth not being able to wear my post baby clothes for a while, but being limited to a smaller wardrobe means I have...

New Product Crushes

I've made it no secret that I struggle when it comes to makeup. Applying it is just not something I'm naturally good at, so I don't tend to put as much time into it as I probably should. Thanks to our lovely beauty editor's tips, I've been making more of an effort lately and two products have completely transformed my every day face. Concealer is a sleep deprived mama's best friend and I've totally fallen in love with YSL's Touche Eclat! It lightens up my under eye area and makes my raccoon eyes way less noticeable! I...
