20 Gorgeous Purple Makeup Products for Fall

It should come as no surprise that I’m in the midst of a lifelong love affair with all shades of purple. Lavender, orchid, lilac, mauve, plum, blackberry, and violet are music to my ears…or rather candy to my eyes. You might shy away from purple when it comes to makeup, but I’ve been searching for […] Read more…

October Julep Maven Box!

I always get so excited when I see that magenta Julep box in my mailbox each month! This time I got two 5-free vegan nail polishes in Logan and Briana, and their lip gloss in Polished. I’d been really curious to try their lip gloss since it is paraben and sulfate-free. I absolutely love the […] Read more…

Why I Love Cream Blush + Five Brands I’d Recommend

I don’t think I’d ever even used a cream blush until last year. It just never occurred to me that it was something I needed in my life. But now that I’ve tried them, I would really rather not live without them. There are still many cream blushes I have yet to try, but so […] Read more…

I first became a fan of Pacifica from falling in love with their roll-on perfumes about a year and a half ago, and over the past year they’ve been coming out with some amazing makeup products also. They’ve added quite a few products to their makeup line in the last few months actually. It’s been […] Read more…

Lately I’m loving indigo in my hand and body lotion. Tatcha (the luxury Japanese skincare company inspired by Geisha beauty rituals) makes a trio of products with this unique botanical extract. I’ve tried two of them over the past month (the Soothing Silk Body Butter and the Soothing Silk Hand Cream) and have completely fallen […] Read more…

Review: Antonym Ecocert Certified Organic Baked Blush + Eye Pencil

I’ve recently tried a few things from the new (in the last few years anyway) brand Antonym Cosmetics. Their bamboo containers were what first caught my eye, but when I found out their entire makeup line is Ecocert certified I was more than intrigued. As far as I know they are the only Ecocert certified […] Read more…

hey babe, meet frank. coffee scrub review.

Let’s get one thing straight, frank is a major flirt. As soon as I heard about this coffee scrub (which originated in Australia and is now available in the United States) I knew I had to try it because 1) I love the smell of coffee (even though I prefer tea) and 2) I love a good […] Read more…
