Ultra Matte or Ultra Miss: Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips

The past year in beauty has been filled with new techniques, new trends, and most importantly- new products. I think we can all agree that the real stars of 2015 were the ever popular liquid lipsticks. This new take on long lasting lips took the beauty world by storm, due to their intense pigmentation, smooth application, and (most importantly) the fact that you can eat a big fat meal without having to touchup. This trend began in the high end realm of beauty, originating with brands such as Stila, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Lime Crime. But sure enough, the drugstore soon caught up with the trend and has been spewing out affordable versions of liquid lipsticks left and right. Another thing on trend in the year of 2015? Colourpop.

The Best and Worst of Beauty 2015 | What I Loved and Loathed This Year

Another year gone, another year of beauty hits and misses. If you’re like me and spend an unreasonable amount of time dedicated to makeup and beauty, then you will understand how it’s possible to have such an overflow of products by the time the new year arrives. But in a weird turn of events, the hits and even the misses come in handy for us beauty bloggers by helping to ebb away the inevitable writers block we all face at some point. Because I have a disturbing amount of makeup hoarded in my drawers, I decided to make the 2015 Beauty list a bit easier by choosing my favorite and least favorite products in each category. So get ready. You’re about to see the good, the bad, and the very ugly.

The Best Fall Nail Polish

It’s that time of year again! I REPEAT: IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN! And by that, I mean it’s time to break open the dark and warm nail polishes!

So if you’re interested in seeing my TOP 5 FAVORITE nail colors for fall, then please just keep on reading 🙂

A Face for the Fair | Makeup Products Great for the Ghostly

“I’ve never seen anyone so white before!” “How is it even possible to be that pale?” “It looks like your skin is made out of milk!” For anyone as pale as I am, I know you can sympathize with those statements that I get on the reg. My entire life I’ve dealt with being as ghostly as it gets. While I actually enjoy and embrace my pale complexion, the one downside to being this fair is finding makeup that works for my skin tone. It’s especially difficult when you’re as obsessed with makeup as me, yet the products that look amazing on the bronzed goddesses of the world just don’t work. So, in today’s post I thought I would put my years of trial and error to use and share with you the perfect products for the pasty.
