MAC – Studio Waterweight Foundation



Studio Waterweight Foundation

Purchase here!

There is a reason MAC is my favorite brand, I am never disappointed with the products they release. I am completely obsessed with this new foundation that they just released. As soon as you put it on your skin you immediately feel that it is so creamy and feels so moisturizing. It skinks into the skin very well and it looks like the foundation is not even there and leaves beautiful natural glow to the skin. This foundation is definitely in trend for the “strobing” “glowing” and “natural look” makeup that is happening at the moment. Everyone who loves a natural light look for foundation needs to get their hands on this foundation. This bottle is also very nice with a easy to use eye-dropper feature. (My shade is NW13)

MAC – The Best Summer Foundations



The Best Summer Foundations

From one extreme to another, here are two foundations that are perfect for the summer. One is extremely lightweight and one is full coverage and will not move off your face.

Studio Face and Body Foundation

This is a completely lightweight foundation, it reminds me of my tinted moisturizers. It is water based giving you a very natural satin finish. It feels like nothing is on your face at all. I have been wearing it all summer.

Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

This is the complete opposite, this is a very full coverage. I wore this for a few sunny outdoor long day sweaty concerts and it did not move off my face. It really is waterproof and very full coverage. It says it lasts for 24 hours, I did’t wear it quite that long but I could easily believe that.

Laura Mercier – 500 Point Sephora Gift

500 Point Sephora Gift

Laura Mercier

About a month ago there was a Sephora 500 point gift from Laura Mercier. I love this brand, between Laura Mercier and MAC it is basically all I use. The box had five items in it and I only had used two out of the five products before, the tinted moisture and the lip gloss. So, I got to try out three new products that I will absolutely be repurchasing.


1. Flawless Skin Face Polish

This is my favorite out of the five, I love skin care products. It cleanses and exfoliates your skin, I love the way it feels, like you are really getting a good clean base for your face. I am absolutely going to purchase this in the full size.

2. Foundation Primer – Radiance Bronze

This is perfect for the summer. It comes out of the bottle very dark but once you work in a small amount on your face it leaves your face with a bronzed glow.

3. Tinted Moisturizer – Nude

I already had this product and my normal shade is Porcelain, but since it is summer and I am tan, the Nude matches my skin tone right now.

4. Matte Radiance Baked Powder – Bronze – 03

I really like this powder because it leaves a radiant finish. This is a very dark shade for me so I use a small amount as a contour.

5. Lip Glace – Nectar

I had a Lip Glace before and I loved it because of the smell, and this has the same smell. Also, I am in love with this color for the summer. I plan to purchase this shade in the full size as well.

Giorgio Armani ‘Luminous Silk’ Foundation

Giorgio Armani

‘Luminous Silk’ Foundation

No. 02

Well, here it is! The product everyone has been talking about. I now know why everyone has been talking about it. I have fallen in love with this foundation. It’s description says it is for all skin types (I have normal to oily skin) hydrating silky texture and buildable coverage and that is exactly what it is. I will not lie the first time I put it on I hated it but that is because I was not used to this type of texture in a foundation, I usually wear fully matte. The second time I used it, I applied it carefully and let it sink in and instantly I saw a difference. I now love it and find myself only using this foundation every morning. I am currently trying different combinations with and without primers. Right now I am loving the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer with it, who would have thought a drugstore primer paired with a high end foundation.

If you have seen this talked about as much as I have. I just made the plunge to buy it, you should too! I don’t want to get addicted to such a high end foundation, but that might be what’s going to happen.

February Favorites


WOW! I can’t believe that it is already the end of February. That went by so fast. I have been extremely busy with school this month because I had my midterm week and all my classes announced a final paper. So, I have not purchased that much this month. I went to the drug store once, I got my hair done, got those boots online on a good boots sale and the sweater is from H&M. I have really been into writing this month so a personal essay may be coming soon.


| 1 | L’Oréal Infallible Series

Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray

Pro-Matte Foundation (Mine is in Classic Ivory)

Pro-Matte Powder (Mine is in Porcelain)

I usually don’t buy drug store products because my skins is super sensitive and oily, so my face and drug store products always become an issue.. but this line is amazing. It is definitely high quality, the setting spray, the foundation and the powder is as good as my high end products. Would definitely re-purchase.

Skin Care

| 2 | Aveda

Botanical Kinetics Energizing Eye Cream

Hand Relief Moisturizing Cream

This is a high end product but it is so worth it. I got them at my local hair salon that I go to. The eye cream I just got a few days ago so I will let you know how it is, but I can already tell so far so good. The hand cream on the other hand I have used every single day this month. It is so worth it if you have dry hands from the winter. It is perfection, I can not say enough good things about this hand cream.


| 3 | Boohoo – Pointed Chelsea Boots

Chelsea boots are my favorite style of boots and I have been wanted one with a pointed toe. I received an email that there was a sale on shoes on boohoo. I got them. Love them. So Much. Wear them all the time.

| 4 | H&M+ V-Neck Sweater

I saw this sweater on tumblr last month and had to find it. It is H&M+ so it was perfect for me. It is such a classic sweater and so big and comfy.


I did not buy the actual cd yet, but I got it on iTunes.. Reflection by Fifth Harmony!! This album is so fun, that is the only way that I can describe it. Every single song I want to dance around my room and pretend that it’s now Sixth Harmony because I obviously think I have joined the group.

Another album that came out recently was Leave Your Love – EP by Tyler Carter. I love it so much. Love him so much.

Also, I went to a Chris Brown and Trey Songz concert this past weekend so I have been listening to them non-stop.



I have been listening to this cover ever since it has come out. Everything Ed touches turns into gold.
