Ulta Haul! Products by Shea Moisture, Rimmel, Maybelline, Covergirl, Anastasia and Hot Tools [VIDEO]

Published in: Makeup, Makeup Tips/How To, Ulta, Video

GURL, you don’t even know. My usual plan of attack when I go to Ulta (or Sephora, or Target, or CVS, or any other place where I can physically pick up makeup and drop it into a basket or cart) goes like this: if I can’t carry it to the register with my own two hands, it’s not leaving the store with me.

This usually prevents the urge to keep throwing stuff (and by “stuff,” I mean everything and the kitchen sink) into my basket.


It didn’t work the last time I went to Ulta.

(Long story…)

Here are the products I picked up and which ones I’m loving (and not loving) from that visit.

As always, thank you again for watching!

P.S. Have you been to Ulta lately? What should I grab on my next trip?

MAC Mia Moretti Collection: First Impressions [VIDEO]

Published in: Collections, MAC Makeup, Video

Here’s the dealio: MAC and a DJ named Mia Moretti got together to spin some sweet tunes!

Yeah, I don’t know if that makes any sense. :) But they did get together to create the new MAC Mia Moretti collection.

I don’t know a lot about DJ-ing, but I do know a little about this launch. Lots of lovely creams, some warm summery colors and a slightly out-of-the-box lip palette. Three words: mint green lipstick.

If it was a little warmer, I would be next to the pool right now in Ray-Ban Aviators, a swimsuit, my beach towel, some magazines and this collection, because it makes me feel summery, casual and fun, like a poolside babe. :)

I’m still getting to know the pieces, but here are some initial first impressions/thoughts.

Published in: Face, Palettes, Too Faced, Video

But first, lemme take a selfie!


And put on some bronzer… I can do both with these new products from Too Faced.

One is a miniature version of their ginormous Little Black Book of Bronzers, and the other is a palette with three face powders designed to create different lighting effects (think the Hourglass Ambients).

Power to the palettes! — especially ones that help you look cute in selfies. :)

As always, thank you for watching.

Right now, the only thing I want on my lips more than these new NYX Intense Butter Glosses ($6 each) is actual whole cream butter.

Mmm, butter…

These are hands-down my favorite drugstore glosses of the moment. They’re a great deal for $6.

Just a quick Monday video. As always, thank you for watching.
