With the holidays coming up, I got gold sparkles and metallics on my mind. Normally I go for the shimmer on my eyes and not on my lips, but I was very intrigued when I received the new Maybelline Matte Metallics Lipsticks from Influenster to try. Personally, I find metallic lips a little intimidating, so I was excited to try a lipstick version since most of the metallic lipsticks on the market are liquid. There are a total of ten jewel-toned lipsticks in the collection. Maybelline claims that these lipsticks have a “Sophisticated brushed metal texture,” which I agree with. These lipsticks aren’t blinding metallics and certainly don’t give off any glitter, but they do have a very pretty shimmery finish that is still comfortable…

It’s tough to say if I get more excited about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale or the Sephora VIB Sale, but I have to say, I’m pretty pumped about the VIB Sale this year. I always take this opportunity to stock up on my staples like hairspray, brow pencils, setting spray and other products I use consistently use throughout the year.

I’ll have a makeup and beauty gift guide up next week as…

While it may feel too early to talk about holiday shopping, October is my favorite time to start shopping for Christmas gifts. Summer items are on super clearance and fall items are marked down to make way for holiday products. If you can wrap your head around there being only two months left in 2017, the Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale is a great time to stock up (hello, $25 cardholder stocking stuffers). Yes, I did indeed get two of the same sweater, because I’m that person. It’s super soft and has the cutest side slits. It runs large, so I got an XS. I’ll probably style mine with a long tank underneath and skinny jeans with boots. The Rebecca Minkoff store in Chicago on Oak…

Neutrogena has always been one of my favorite brands for both skincare and makeup. I partnered with Neutrogena to bring you some fall makeup inspo and swatch out some shades from their Skin Clearing Makeup line. I’ve used the Healthy Skin foundation in the past and it’s one of my favorite drugstore foundations. If you have fair skin like me and struggle finding a foundation that isn’t too dark, too pink or too yellow, hopefully these swatches will help you choose the perfect shade: I’m wearing the Skin Clearing Foundation in the shade Classic Ivory with a touch of the Healthy Skin Foundation in the shade Natural Ivory mixed in. Classic Ivory runs a bit yellow, so mixing it with the Natural Ivory helped balance…
