I bought this palette when Sephora was doing their 20% VIB sale ( November 2016 ) and when I first used it, I didn’t like it so I pushed it aside. A few months later I decided to give it another shot and was so glad that I did, this palette was absolutely beautiful. I know a lot of people had mixed reviews on it saying they were disappointed and they weren’t a fan of the quality, or it was too glittery; but a lot of people fail to realize that just because you don’t like a product doesn’t mean it’s bad. We are all different and may not like the same things, but you should never bash a product; simply say it wasn’t for you and move on. I actually enjoyed this product so much that I was looking for a backup and luckily I found one 40% off at Macy’s.
*This product was limited edition
Concealer is one of those products ( minus foundation ) that is so hard for me to fall in love with, but I’m so happy I finally found a concealer that does everything I want and works so well for me. This concealer is full coverage, and blends so well and I haven’t had any issues with it creasing.
I’ve tried so many different concealers this year and I’m always going back to this one. The only downside is that it’s an Ulta Exclusive product, so you won’t find it at Sephora.
For those who are interested, I use the shade Medium & Tan but not together ( well sometimes ). I prefer the shade tan for days when I want to look more natural-ish, and I reach for medium when I do a full face.
I’ve been wanting to try out this brand for the longest and as soon as I found out that Sephora was going to carry it online, I made sure to stay on top of it as soon as it was launched. There was a few other products I wanted to get my hands on, but they were sold out.
I’ll be trying these products out this week and either I’ll post a video reviewing it or make another blog post for you guys.
This has been hands down my most used/reached for palette for the year of 2017. I’m dissapointed that I didn’t purchase it sooner, but better late than never. The shadows are beautiful, the formula blends flawless and I really can’t say enough good things about it. It looks a bit intense, and I only took such a long time to get my hands on it because I hate spending money on things I won’t use and to my surprise I didn’t plan on falling in love with it. I’m glad this is part of Anastasia’s permanent line 😉
I was extremely late purchasing the latest MAC x Nicki Minaj lipstick collection, and honestly I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to. There was tons of mixed reviews and I decided to purchase last minute since they were on sale. I have yet to try them out, but as soon as I do I will give you all an update with pictures.

I believe I repurchased MAC’s Velvet Teddy at least 3 times last year. I’m a creature of habit and this has been a favorite of mine for the past 4 years, but I’m thinking going through 2-3 tubes of lipstick is a bit excessive… especially since that’s not the only lipstick I wore this year. I know a bunch of you have been asking what my favorite lipstick is and this is deff one of them ( I will post a video early this year sharing all my favorite nude combos ).
First let me start off by saying how much I adore Rihanna, and when I found out she was launching a beauty line; I was ecstatic. 40 different foundation shades right off the bat is unheard of!!!
I’m not one who orders foundations online, unless I know it’s my shade so I went in testing different shades and was a bit heartbroken that my perfect shade didn’t exist.
I first tested out 300, it was too dark and yellow for my skin and 290 was too light for my liking ( I also tried out 3 additional shades ). I know what you’re thinking, why not mix shades? I wasn’t trying the spend $70 to get my shade and the foundation is not full coverage, it’s more along the lines of medium ( If you don’t know, I prefer full coverage foundations ). Don’t get me wrong, the foundation is absolutely beautiful and if your shade exists I think you should try it out. It makes your skin look so healthy and if you get a little oily, blotting your face will make it look as if you freshly applied it on, instead of the foundation separating and your skin won’t look blotchy.
Aside from the foundation, I skipped out on a bunch of products because I wasn’t trying to spend unneccessary money. I did however pick up ‘Trophy Wife’ and oh my GOD.
This highlighter is on a whole other level of blinding, it has glitter in it, so if you’re not a fan of that then I would pass on wearing it as a highlight but it’s beautiful as an eyeshadow and to pop in your inner corners.
