The Body Deli Purifying Facial Mini Kit and Jasmine Tuberose Body Cream Review

Hey everyone! During a little vacation I had to Palm Desert/Palm Springs, California area, I was lucky enough to come across a high quality superfood skincare brand, The Body Deli. As soon as I stepped inside their cute little shop, I knew I wanted to try so many things! So, I decided to start off buying a kit to try out some of the decadent products. What caught my eye first was the body care. Lots of natural soaps and body creams that smelled to die for. My favorite among them was Jasmine Tuberose, sooo devine! 
Once I found out they had facial care products, my ears perked up. I've been wanting to switch up my skincare routine and thought this was the perfect opportunity.

I picked up the Purifying kit, for oily acne prone skin since that is my skin type. This comes with their Sage and Grapefruit Cleanser, Light Facial Emulsion face lotion, Blueberry Fusion Scrub, and Glacial Mud Mask. 
I feel really good about putting these products on my face since they are actually really good for you! They do everything that it is intended to do. My favorite is the cleanser, which feels so luxurious on the skin with ingredients such as Manuka Honey, Salicylic Acid, and so much more. I could rub that on my face all day! I also see a huge difference every time I use the Blueberry Fusion Scrub. It's an exfoliant with lactic and fruit acids that you leave on your face for 2-3 mins. it is so good!! I really recommend this kit for acne prone skin, I've noticed great results! 

The Jasmine Tuberose body cream feels and smells insanely magnificent. It may be one of the most fabulous creams I've tried, perfect for dry legs and sinks in so quickly!

With that being said, definitely look this brand up, I have physically gone into the store and ordered online at Such an amazing little find! 

ps. They include three free samples of products in your order, just be sure to write in the notes section what you would like to try. 

Talk to you soon,

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick review

Greetings, from your lipstick junkie/makeup addict! I have been trying to get my hands on these brand new Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks for a few months now. And I am so happy they launched at Macy's today!!

I have purchased the colors Pure Hollywood, a prefect nude color, and Bambi, a bright cool toned pink.These are liquid lipsticks, so they go on super creamy and dry to a matte finish. I would say it took about 10 minutes for them to dry on the lips completely. They apply pretty evenly and precise with its doe foot applicator. Also, they have a pretty good lasting power, but not as long compared to my Lime Crime Velvetines. I prefer these from Anastasia Beverly Hills since they are more comfortable on the lips, and not as drying. 

$20 at select Macy's and also on Anastasia Beverly Hills website! 
I am so happy to add these to my liquid lipstick collection!

Happy lipstick shopping,

Makeup Forever Artist Shadows Review

Howdy everyone, I'm trying to get back into my beauty blog. I've taken some time off and boy do I have so many things to share with you.. I am still a huge makeup consumer so just be ready for more reviews to come!

Any who.. I ordered some Makeup Forever Artist shadows over the past week. Just received them in the mail and I am wearing them on my eyelids today! Beyond impressed!! Now, what's special about these shadows is they are the best ones on the market right now as far as pigmentation goes, these babes are 80% pigment. Woooah. They also have the best blend ability in a shadow because of the gel like formula and intense color payoff. These aren't just meant for eyes; these can be worn as blush, bronzer, or for whatever you like. There are over 100 shades to chose from and come in a few different finishes as well, so far in my little palette I picked out the mattes and diamond finishes since thats typically what I gravitate towards. 

Left to right
M-600 Pink Brown
D-826 Fig
D-320 Golden Khaki 

-Pink Brown is a warm pinky brown that is perfect for the crease or all over the lids.
-Fig is this super pretty purple cranberry shade with glitter.
-Golden Khaki is a olive green with gold glitter. 

I have a few more I want but they are sold out online and in until then I have these to hold me over, and I couldn't be happier with this trio. 
The shadow pan themselves cost $21 each at Sephora, but if you buy them in a customizable palette with 2 or 3 shadows it is a much better deal. 3 shadows with the palette comes up to $44, and you can pick whatever color you want. It's an awesome concept.

Happy Blending!

NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette Review

It's that time of the year for great makeup buys! The holidays bring around amazing gift sets and palettes..a weakness for me for sure! 

I might of went a little crazy this year at the Sephora VIB sale. I purchased products that I could get a lot of use out of. This NARS Virtual Domination palette was probably my favorite purchase. 
I'm glad I got my hands on this one, since last years NARS cheek palette sold out super fast! This one comes with 3 blushes, a highlight shade, and their famous Laguna bronzer. 

The first shade Miss Liberty, is a beautiful highlight if you're a fan of a really intense sheen! It is like straight glitter for your face, I think it looks beautiful on the cheeks. 
Next to that is Deep Throat, a permanent in the line, it is such a beautiful shimmery peachy color that really makes a nice pop. 
The lighter pink of the bunch is Sex Fantasy, a cool tone matte baby pink that is especially pretty on fair skintones. 
Final Cut is a matte true peach color, I've been mixing this one with Sex Fantasy and it gives me a really pretty custom shade! 
Last one is Laguna Bronzer, I was scared to try this one since I thought it to be a lot darker then it was, I have a really fair skintone and this bronzer still works for me! NARS is known for Laguna so I'd like to express that this one impressed me the most. 

Overall, if you can still get your hands on this please get it!! Amazing pigmentation and quality. It is a limited edition holiday palette, with a great value at $65. 

Happy Holidays!

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick Set Review

I have been dying to try out Kat Von D's lipsticks since they have become available at Sephora. As soon as I saw this set with cute minis, I knew I had to have it! This lipstick set comes with 9 beautiful shades, has an awesome color range, and of course I need to mention the chic-sleek packaging. 
This set has two different finishes, matte and a metallic, iridescent finish. Matte finish is my favorite when it comes to lip products and these are not drying at all. I was a little weary about trying the metallic shades but I have to say they look really cool on the lips. The formula with all the shades are comfortable, pigmented, and long lasting. Claims to be a 10 hour wear lipstick! 

Here's a close up of the shades:
Agatha: pale peachy nude
Lovecraft: (my favorite) mauve pink
Sexer: hot bright pink

Countess: bright orange red
Wonderchide: shimmery purple pink
Bachelorette: reddish pink

Adora: red with gold sheen
Hexagram: a blood red
Mötorhead: black cherry

I purchased these at Sephora for $39, great value for what you get!

Mac x RiRi Viva Glam Rihanna 2

I am reviewing this shade for multiple reasons: I have never seen a lipstick quite like this, I wanted to see how bad ass the shade looks on multiple skin tones, and because Rihanna has always rocked it with Mac Cosmetics collaborations. 

photo taken from NikkieTutorials

 This shade is described as a warm mauvey sliver frost. It is more like a very cool gray brown to me, and very frosty. Works really well with a mauve lipliner! Now, I had to try this out for all my fair-porcelain ladies like myself. It is a bit of a different color and can be hard to pull off. With the grunge trend happening, I think this is a perfect shade. With the right eye and cheek makeup, this can be done! And of course I have to mention how amazing this looks on the deepest of skin tones. Rihanna hit it out of the park with this one.
Purchased at the Mac Store for $16.00
