Best of Beauty 2016

It’s officially 2017! Which means Best of Beauty! Most of the things on this list were a no brainer, because they are things that I have gone through completely and had to repurchase, or things that I still use almost daily. A few things on this list I had to give a little thought to because they were things I mainly use during summer, so I haven’t touched them in awhile, but I still love them! If you’ve been following me for awhile, a lot of the things on this list will pretty obvious, because I’ve raved about them in so many posts.

Zoeva Haul and Review

Hey everyone! Hopefully you all had an amazing holiday season! Mine was super hectic. Between work, all the holiday festivities, and getting sick, I feel like I haven’t stopped in weeks! Anyways, I am back with yet another haul post!

zoeva-3

I’ve always wanted to try out products from Zoeva. So many people rave about their brushes and palettes because they are so cheap but still high quality. I could never bring myself to complete my order, though, because of how expensive shipping was. For Black Friday, they did their first ever sale, giving 20% off everything on the site. I knew I had to place an order, so I set my alarm for 6 am when the sale was starting (I got off work at 3 am). After an hour of the website continually crashing and reloading, I finally placed my order.

November 2016 Favorites

Favorites posts always get away from me. I feel like I never get them up on time, because something always comes up (this time it was work and finals), and next thing I know, the month is half over. But better late than never, right?  This month I have been loving a few new purchases from the Sephora VIB Sale, which I am so excited about! It’s primarily eyeshadows, but that is my makeup obsession, so it’s the thing I buy and use the most!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette Review

sweet-peach-5

So way back in March, Too Faced released their limited edition Sweet Peach palette. I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted it, and when I finally decided I did (literally at 5 pm of the launch day) it was out of stock everywhere. And I mean everywhere. I checked every website, Ulta, Sephora, and Sephora in JCPenney near me, and none of them had the palette. I was heartbroken. When I heard it was coming back in stock for Christmas, I knew I had to get it. Fast forward to December 2nd at 1 am, I’m glued to my computer anxiously trying to get the early release of the palette. After the website crashing multiple times, and my computer crashing, I finally get the palette, at 2:45 am (and thanks to my lovely boyfriend for buying me it as a Christmas gift). I thought that everything would be smooth sailing from there, but nope. A few days later, I see my palette was delivered to my school, but I never got a slip notifying me to pick up a package. I checked every day for the next five days, but never got a slip. I got fed up and asked if someone would check the mailroom, and sure enough, my package is sitting there, they just forgot to give me my slip.

Needless to say, getting this palette was probably one of the most difficult things ever, but I have it and it’s mine and I love it. So in honor of the launch tomorrow, I decided to post my review!

Sephora VIB Haul 2016

The Sephora VIB sale was about two weeks ago, which means 20% off everything in the store. I definitely bought more than I should have, but who can blame me?! I picked up a couple things in store, and then placed an online order for the things that were not available at my local Sephora. I meant to post this a week ago, but Black Friday happened and I ended up working about 40 hours, so the time escaped me! Apologies! But better late than never, right? Anyways, into the haul!

Makeup Geek and Ulta Haul

After what seems like an eternity, I finally got around to placing an order from Make Up Geek. I know, I know. I’m so far behind on this trend. I don’t know why it took me so long! I always told myself I would order, I’d fill up my cart, and then I’d exit out and tell myself tomorrow. Well, a couple days ago I got an email from Ulta saying that there was 20% off everything online, including prestige brands. So since I was already placing a huge makeup order, I decided it was time to finally order from Make Up Geek.

For those of you who aren’t sure what to get, I put together a list of a few of my favorite products that I definitely recommend!

October 2016 Favorites

I feel like I’m perpetually behind on favorites. Like every time I get one up, a week passes and I have to get another one up. Either that or time is just flying by and I can’t keep up. Anyways, time for another favorites! This month was definitely hard for me because, for the most part, I’ve been loving and using products from past favorites. I try to feature new items on each post, or at least things I haven’t talked about recently, to keep it from getting too repetitive. There have been a few stand out products this month, though, so those will be getting some love here!

Fall 2016 Makeup Routine

Fall is hands down my favorite season. I love the leaves changing and sweaters and warm Starbucks and boots and all the other cozy parts, I just wished it lasted more than three whole days. Although the weather here is in the 40s, it’s still technically fall, so you bet your bottom dollar that I’m still rocking fall makeup looks! I do change up my makeup most days, but there has been one look I’ve been favoring for this time of the year.
