Quite literally I am that; Freak obsessed. For those of my babies that live in the UK you are familiar with this scent, I am sure, if you are not, get familiar. As for my US babies, Illamasqua is not only one of the most amazing cosmetics lines (their pigments are to DIE for and I simply cannot WAIT to get my hands on their skin base foundation and their Hydra Veil) but their signature scent, FREAK, speaks volumes to me. The bottle is adorable and classy with the silver snail (I LIVE), the name is EVERYTHING, but the scent…..ohhhh the scent. It takes me ages to find perfume that I love and would wear every day, all day and now I have found a new one. It has finally come to the US at your local Sephora store. I URGE you to go check out the line and fall in love with it the way I have. Check it out at Sephora here and the site here. LIVE!
We all hate to frighten the one we love when we wake up bare faced and well, natural. Bare Minerals has come up with a solution; makeup to sleep in. Pure Transformation Night Treatment was formulated especially to sleep in with an “active soil complex” that is literally supposed to help us to wake up looking better than we did going to sleep! I would most definitely pay $60 for something that makes my skin brighter and the best part? Makes pores smaller. Yes, please! On the serious tip, you know the one you love, if they truly love you, doesn’t give two craps how you look in the morning 😉
Apparently Giselle Bundchen can’t get enough of the stuff and this little drink may explain why she looks like she’s made a deal with the devil. It’s called Pure Gold Collagen (clearly) and it costs 50 bucks for a 10 day supply. Check it here.
I am always on a continuous journey to use as many natural products in my beauty regime as I can. It used to be natural = shit but not anymore. I feel like Dr. Hauschka paved the way with super high quality natural skin care products and soooo many other have followed suit (thank GOD) and have hit the shelves. While I am a huge fan of the good Dr. Hauschka, there are others I wanna talk about. Specifically, Annemarie Borlind. This eye cream is everything. It’s $30, I use it for my night eye cream and let me tell you, a little goes a loooong way. 100% worth every stinkin’ penny. I got it at Sprouts but check it here. Can’t wait to try more from this line.
Candy lovers, this post is for you! If you love your candy but are trying to be more health conscious this may be your answer. Unreal Candy is everything you want in a candy without the junk. No corn syrup, No GMO’s, No partially hydrogenated oils to name a few of the aspects. It’s available pretty much everywhere these days, but it’s worth a shot, candy lovers. Check it here.
When I post about my love of juicing, inevitably I get emails or tweets from people asking about which juicer I use. I use a Green Star when I have the counter space, but it’s a big, heavy juicer with a big, heavy clean up. Therefore, I recently went on eBay and got a Breville Juice Fountain. I got it slightly used for less than 100 bucks and it’s changed my life. Not only does it have a huge opening (insert punchline here) for whole apples, etc., but it’s super easy to clean as well. My motto? Chew your fruit, drink your greens. Get one here.
I love love love plumping glosses but haaaate when it hurts (i’m side-eyeing you, Lip Venom and Lip Fusion XL). The best one that actually works? Soap & Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker. They had me at the name. I love when I get a product not knowing anything about it and it blows me away. I have told MANY a queen and lady about this gloss. They used to carry it at Target but now it’s at Sephora for $15. Check it here. GET SOME TODAY, you will looooove!
I am only sharing this with you because I love you all. This is the ONLY lip liner I will wear….EVER. Okay, when they discontinued it I just about went into panic mode, but Sephora did come through with a color very similar in their own brand for 7 bucks so i bought a few of them, but then MAC wised up and brought Stone lip liner back. You can only find it in stores (rather than counters at say Macy’s or Nordie’s) but I simply liiiive for this greyish neutral tone. With my uber light pink or nude middle, my lips always look like a medium well roast beef. If you can’t find it, NYX has a great dupe also called 1000 years. #Perfection
