Every summer & winter, many stores start to have beauty clearance. These are usually products that are being discontinued, getting new packaging, or whatever other reason. If you don't know what I'm referring to swing by a CVS on your way home from work. You'll see yellow clearance price tags, pink 50% off stickers on's like a beauty product heaven! And before I forget, Lumene BB Cream was on sale for $3.66!!! That's an $18 (awesome) product!

Loreal Colour Riche has several different lines, but the Caress is my most recent purchase...I'm actually only 4 shades away from having all 16, and I WANT every single one. 

From Left-Right: #172 Blushing Sequin, #173 Velvety Fuchsia, #176 Sunset Angora, #179 Cherry Tulle

From Left-Right: #169 Pink Plush, #170 Cotton Pink, #183 Pink Vinyl, #184 Merino Mauve

-Balm quality instead of a lipstick
-Last about 3 hours, so not like a stain or long lasting formula
-Goes on very smooth with a silky feel
-Doesn't dry out or get clumpy on the lips 

  I'm completely in love with these lippies! They have become my go to and I always have 1 or 2 shades in my purse. For a more subtle look I just swipe it back and forth on the lips 2 or 3 times, if I want more pigmentation then I go back and forth until the desired color is achieved. I would probably say the shades in the top picture are more pigmented than the pinks, but you can build upon that color. 

   Now I'm super excited to try more of the Loreal lippies and I'll probably pick some up at CVS since they offer such great deals on beauty products and many things are on clearance. What is your favorite drugstore lipstick?

E.L.F. Cosmetic Brushes...Fave or Fail?

Admittedly I've been using the same Mary Kay makeup brushes for a while now, along with a few other random brands thrown in. I was just satisfied with my MK brushes because they washed well and have help up for a really long time. But it was definitely time for a whole new set and I had trouble making up my mind on which makeup brushes to try. At first my plan was to snag a few from different companies to see what I liked best, but then E.L.F. Cosmetics had a 50% off sale with free shipping over $35. Naturally I had to give it a shot since I was getting so much bang for my buck. I already knew that I wasn't too fond of their cheaper $1 brushes so I opted for the Studio Line which ranges from $3-$10 and I'd heard great reviews. All together I got 15 brushes (1 didn't make it to the picture) for only $37, definitely a steal! Keep reading to find out if it was worth it. 

 I am extremely pleased with these E.L.F makeup brushes. The only one that I'm not too fond of woul…

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.

Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...

It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...

1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…
