Greetings everyone. Each year I do a Valentine's Day gift guide for yourself, ideas for your significant other, or a galentine's gift for your friends. This year is going to be no different. I'm going to try and broaden the scope some and not talk about skincare and makeup only though. None of this is sponsored.
Alright guys, there's a new trend that is supposed to take over 2020 and concealers in general. It's basically moving away from really high matte coverage concealer into a more luminous look. So there's a lot of concealers that are "brightening" concealers coming out right now. I read about the "new trends for 2020" online and this one caught my eye. I personally would love to see people moving away from the really high coverage concealer and baking the face. It looks good in pictures but trust and believe in person it is too much for a lot of people. Plus it's a lot of work. I would love to see a more "fresh" look. So I picked up one that was mentioned in the article which is Tarte Shape Tape Glow Wand. This won't be the only concealer I try within this trend, it's just where I'm going to begin exploring this new move.
Alright, if you're like me you don't take part in the "January No Buy" because there's so many good holiday sets still available and some of them are on sale. My birthday is also in January (the 29th actually) so of course I look for those good deals, and also take the time to treat myself to something I've wanted for a long time. You may get gift cards, etc as well. So I've put together some things that I've gotten that I think are really amazing that might help you with ideas of what to get yourself.
Happy 2020 guys! It's been a while since my last blog post. As you know, I've been taking some time away from everything and just focused on the holidays and shutting everything off, in a way, to focus on family. I hope you guys had a great holiday season. I thought it'd be nice to kick off 2020 with a collective haul post, things I've picked up after the holidays that went on sale, and some brand new things for 2020. I cashed in my points with ULTA and took advantage of the Sephora sale on sale event.
Allure box for December is really good. It's another collab. They done this with Anastiasia Beverly Hills with the owner Anastasia Soare on the pamphlet. As you know I've discussed ABH products many times, they recently have started a new line or "brand within the brand" which is the Norvina line, who is Anastasia's daughter. I definitely enjoy 80% of their products there have been some flops for me but in general I've always been a fan. So, seeing this collab made me very happy. Although I have several of the products, that doesn't mean it's not a good box.
Alright guys. I'm now coming to you with some gift ideas that aren't dedicated to certain retailers and not fully beauty related. There will of course be some in this but I'm going to talk about other products as well, that make great gifts in my opinion. I've compiled my list after quite a long time thinking about it, also asking my friends for their thoughts on what would make a great gifts for them personally.
ULTA gift guide is up next. They're always having sales of course and marking items down. What I've really loved about them for the last 2 years or so, is that they're taking on more indie brands that are popular within the beauty community. They've stepped up in a major way, plus all your purchases give you points which convert to cash.
Alright guys. I'm coming at you with a Sephora buying guide in this post. I wanted to get these up before Black Friday but honestly I'm very sick, and also I don't really feel like the deals are going to be that much different this weekend as opposed to the remainder of the holidays.
Alright guys let's chat about some holiday shopping. I'm going to start with specific stores and then afterwards I'm going to give you just general gift ideas that aren't necessarily all beauty related. In other words quite a few posts are coming.
Starting with Beautylish. As you know I love them. I get sent products from them quite often. I also shop their site quite often. So this is going to be a straight to the point guide of what I think is really good.
Hey guys. Today I wanted to review the Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star Conspiracy Palette. I bought mine from Beautylish. It took less than a week to get here. As you know, I prefer to purchase from Beautylish just because you have installment payments if you want, and they normally handle big launch days better in my opinion for any brand. I knew this launch day in particular was going to be crazy. I managed to make the order in 11 minutes but I know some people who checked out on other sites had to wait up to 5 hours. This is the first Jeffree Star product I've ever had. I'm a big Shane Dawson fan. I've enjoyed the series. As a makeup lover, blogger, etc I like seeing the actual process of making products and I'm a sucker for formulating things.
I'm from Tennessee. I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
