The Best Makeup Mirror Ever


I spotted this iHome mirror at Bed Bath & Beyond a few months ago, and I knew that I needed it right away. My previous mirror was a plain, unlighted mirror that wasn’t quite tall enough or big enough. I needed an upgrade, so I threw this mirror on my wish list. I was thrilled to receive this gift on my birthday, and right away I was ready to use it to create some new beauty looks. Continue reading

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Voxbox

It’s that time again–Voxbox time! As always I was super thrilled when I received the email letting me know that I would be getting another Voxbox. Over the last year, I’ve been getting lots of Voxboxes from prestige cosmetic brands, and as far as prestige and tried and true brands go, Makeup Forever is one of the best.

Since I’m pale, most of my picks will be geared toward paler skin tones, but rest assured, any skin tone can find a perfect Nude. Brands like Buxom, Hourglass, and many other brands sell lines with nudes in several different shades. Other brands like MAC have nudes in every shade and tone, and you don’t have to look far to find them.

Too Faced has just released the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar to the general public as of December 15th, but I was able to get my hands on it a few days ago thanks to Sephora’s VIB Rouge program that allows Rouge members to buy special release products early.

I promised myself that I wasn’t going to go for it, but of course, I wasn’t able to resist when I saw the colors! I was worried at first glance that the colors would be too similar, but the second chocolate bar palette definitely brings something new to the table!
