My November Birchbox Products!

Birchbox is truly the easiest way to test out a variety of new beauty products and I highly recommend it for all beauty lovers. Here are my products for November! Clinique Cream Shaper For Eyes ($16.50) A.K.A. eyeliner, haha. I love when brands give a fancy name to very simple products. My phases with eyeliner go in and out, I’ll spend months not wearing it to achieve a more “fresh faced” look, and then I’ve have a phase where I’m…

MAC’s “Sin” Lipstick: The Perfect Transitional Lip Color for Fall

Its no secret that I love lipstick and will use any excuse to bust out a new shade. Since we’re transitioning (very quickly) through fall to winter its time for me to start rocking deeper hues. I recently stumbled across MAC’s “Sin” Lipstick ($17), which I am obsessed with. Sin offers just the right amount of vampy pigmentation to rock from day to night for an edgy look. It’s a deep dark blue-based red that goes well with my complexion.…

ARROW Hydrate Soothing Facial Mist

I really wish I had discovered this product sooner — I absolutely LOVE the ARROW Hydrate Soothing Facial Mist ($12). First off, ARROW is a brand created by Birchbox that specializes in lightweight, long-wearing makeup and skincare to accommodate an active lifestyle. The brand has makeup products like a cheek tint and color enhancing lip balm that actually stay on throughout a workout. I’ve never been the type to want to wear makeup to the gym, but this is very tempting!…

Recap: My Jamaican Vacation!

I’m back! So sorry for the long hiatus, I was on a beautiful vacation in my home island of Jamaica. I don’t believe I’ve mentioned this as of yet, but I was born there and moved to the U.S. when I was two years old —I actually have not been back since I was 5. So, this was a very overdue trip for me as an adult. I went away with my entire immediate family and we stayed at the…

A Case For Black Lipstick!

As you all know, I love experimenting with lip colors and textures–the bolder, the better. This time around I decided to take a new risk and venture off into the world of black lipstick. I know, super gothic and a little extreme, but I had to try it for myself. Also, I get that it’s the middle of summer, so I wouldn’t advise rocking it during the day, but it actually does give a very chic nighttime look. The black…

I Love My: Highlighter & Tinted Moisturizer

I love putting on a full face of makeup. I don’t care what anyone says or thinks, because it isn’t for them—to me its fun and part of my morning routine. I love foundation, a little concealer, blush, mascara and a bold lip or gloss. However, in the summer this is less realistic to actually last and stay as fresh as I’d like for an entire day. Therefore, I’ve been playing around with using fewer products and still am able…

Can Lip Gloss Make a Comeback?

In middle school, you couldn’t tell me nothin’ when it came to the amount of lip gloss I wore. I literally had tubes and tubes of clear Lip Smacker gloss, and I didn’t use it sparingly. Eventually (along with the hoop earrings) this started to fade out of my day-to-day look. Nowadays I prefer a bold lipstick, usually matte. However, I’ve been curious as of late to explore the realm of gloss once more. So, I decided to test out…

Beauty on a Budget: My Drugstore Favs

I am the first to admit, makeup is too damn expensive. Not that, that stops me from buying MAC or brands at Sephora, but it does add up. Believe it or not I really feel some drugstore brands are on par with their more expensive counterparts in terms of quality, and after all, buying products at the drugstore is where it all started for me at the beginning of college. Here are some favorites that are currently in my makeup…
