Christmas Dubsmash Compilation!

Hey guys!  As someone who usually LOVES all things Christmas, I just am not in the Christmas spirit this year.  I don't know if it's because the weather has been warmer or what, but it just hasn't hit me yet.  Soooooo, if you are feeling kind of Scrooge-ish this year too and need a little Christmas, then come and singalong with me!  We will be feeling merry in no time at all.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, peeps!


How To Paint Your Fingernails Like A Pro!

Hey guys!  Here's a video showing exactly how I paint my nails.  You truly can get a professional looking manicure in the comfort of your home.  Thanks for watching and let me know if you have any questions!



Too Faced Melted Kisses & Sweet Kisses

Hey guys!  Today I thought I would share with you a holiday set I recently picked up from Sephora, it's the Too Faced Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks gift set.  I don't really get into large palettes or anything that most of the beauty companies release this time of year, but I do get into things like this. Deluxe sizes of their normal, everyday products.  Sets like this allow you to sample several colors for less $, which I'm all about.

In this gift set (which retails for $36), you get 3 of the Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipsticks (Melted Nude, Melted Peony, Melted Fig), and 3 of their Love Flush Blushes (Love Hangover, Justify My Love, Your Love Is King).

Each lipstick came packaged with a corresponding blush.

These would make great stocking stuffers, or you could just keep them all like I am doing lol.

So pretty!  You get a great nude lipstick, pink lipstick, and rosy lipstick, and a peachy pink blush, a true pink blush, and a gorgeous plumy rose.  My favorite combo is the Melted Fig liquid lipstick and the Your Love is King blush. 

I used the promo code PARTYPICKS and got another one of Sephora's sample bags.  I chose the Late-Night Necessities bag which has 8 deluxe samples of some great products housed in a really cute black bag/clutch.

1.  Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black perfume

2.  Origins GinZing eye cream

3.  Sephora Waterproof eye makeup remover

4.  Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask

5.  Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion

6.  Kat Von D Ink Liner in Trooper

7.  Philosophy perfume duo

8.  Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in N9

Sorry so blurry!!!.....


Thanks for stopping by guys!  If you have this gift set let me know what you think and let me know which colors are your favorite <3


Sephora VIB Sale Haul!

Hey guys!  It's that wonderful time of year again....the VIB sale at Sephora!  Seeing as how things so rarely go on sale at Sephora, it is so exciting to get things you've been eyeballing at 20% off.  In years past I have made the mistake of buying big holiday palettes that I never use, but I have learned over time to stock up on basic necessities instead, which is totally what I did this time as well.  This haul below is actually 2 orders, as there was a promo code I really wanted to use, other than the 20% off one.  I figured I would just combine both orders and do one post.  I will start with the first order where I used the promo code PARTYFAVORS.

Kat Von D Lock 'N Load Makeup Setting Spray, $24
If you follow my blog at all then you have to be aware of my obsession with makeup setting sprays.  They really make a difference in your makeup, they keep everything from looking too cakey and powdery, and they really do help lock everything in place and keep your makeup on all day.  I think I have just about every brand Sephora sells, lol, and I really do like this one so far.

Sephora Nano Liner in Emerald Green, $3
I had to spend $25 in order to use my promo code, so I grabbed this eyeliner that was on clearance.  I thought Emerald Green might be nice to wear during the holidays.  I haven't tried this yet but it is your everyday basic pencil eyeliner.  Swatched on the back of my hand it did look pretty.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, 100 pt perk
I have the big bottle of this that I use every time I wash my hair here at home, so I always grab these deluxe size sample tubes for when I travel.  This is a leave-in product that gives both heat and UV protection to your hair, adds shine, all that jazz.  Love this stuff.

As I mentioned above, the promo code I used on this order was PARTY FAVORS.  After the VIB sale I noticed on their site that the promo code actually changed to PARTYPICKS.  I am pretty sure you can only use this coupon code once, so make sure to pick the sample bag you want the most!  I chose the Playful Prep bag.

Each bag comes with this really cute makeup bag/clutch and 8 beauty samples.  Here is what was in this one:

1.  Sephora Oil Infusion Color & Care in Bubbly Grenadine

2.  Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil

3.  Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

4.  Stella by Stella McCartney Eau de Parfum

7.  Jack Black Lip Balm

There were several little cards and extras in the box.


It was on the 2nd order that I used my 20% discount code.  I can't talk about some of the things I got, as they are Christmas gifts for family.  But, here's what I got!

Make Up For Ever Mattifying Primer, $36

This primer is costly, but it makes SUCH a difference with oily skin.  I have been using this for a few months now and I adore it.

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight 01- Golden Nude, $40

Shimmery highlights may be all the rage right now, but glowy highlights are more up my alley.  (Kevyn Aucoin, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, etc.).  This one is a perfect addition to my collection.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, $22.50

This powder has zero color, but it sets your makeup beautifully!

Bite Beauty Mix and Mingle Double-Ended Lipstick in Pomegranate/Palomino, $14

Bite lipsticks are some of the best you'll ever use, and I love how handy these double ended lipsticks are.  I always grab whatever colors they have!

Tory Burch Absolu Eau De Parfum, 250 pt perk

I collect 250 pt perk bottles of perfumes, I actually use them to decorate my vanity mirror.  This one was so pretty in the bottle, so I had to grab it.  Smells so nice too!


And that's it for now guys!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Let me know what goodies you picked up at the VIB sale and what you're loving!
