As soon as I filmed and edited my Causebox in my Ads Made Me Buy It video, my fall Causebox arrived!  Let's take a look at what's inside. https://youtu.be/hwUsCZUHM78 So far, I've been consistently impressed by the value and variety in these boxes. I've never been interested in subscription boxes, but this one provides useful items that give back.  I know I keep saying this in my videos, too, but the items in these boxes are so nice that any items you don't want would make a great gift for someone else. Everything is full size and good quality. I'm already looking forward to my winter box. If you want to see it, comment below or like the video to let me know!

Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions Palette

I'm finally coming at you with another review, this time for the Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions palette. There are four different Obsessions palettes, but this one stood out to me because it has a great variety of colors and is closest to what I normally like to wear. The Details Retails for $27 at Sephora and Huda Beauty's website 9 x 1.3g (0.05 oz) eyeshadows Cruelty-free (and after some digging, I found that the company responded to someone's comment on their website about the Obsession palettes being vegan, but take that as you wish) Here's what Huda Beauty says about this line of mini palettes: A range of compact eyeshadow palettes, expertly curated by Huda herself, offering beauty lovers a complete day-to-night eye color wardrobe. Each Huda Beauty Obsessions…

It's been a long time since I've done a two-minute transformation, so I thought it would be fun to do another one with fall colors. By coincidence, I ended up using all matte eyeshadows. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKJhPuHlJd0 The music in this video is by an awesome independent artist named Jasper Sawyer. Check out his YouTube page for all his music! I've linked to his channel in the video description. As for the products, well, I used quite a few: Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation in Ivory Nude NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Light 2 Vanilla beautyblender Anastasia Brow Pomade in Soft Brown Hourglass Ambient Lightning Powder in Dim Light Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer Milani Coming Up Roses Blush in Awakening Rose Becca Highlighter in…

Cheap + Easy Glitter Lips for Halloween

Cheap + Easy Glitter Lips for Halloween

Wow, Colleen's doing a Halloween post? Well, kinda... I've never really gotten into Halloween, except for the candy when I was a kid. Now, I supposed I'd be excited for a costume party just for the fun makeup. So today's post and video are about getting awesome glittery lips without the mess and expense of glitter glue and loose glitter. Does it look exactly the same as if you went through all that trouble? Not completely. But does it still look cool? Yep. I got these glitter singles from Wet 'n Wild a while ago and used them on my eyes a couple times (including in my first 2-minute transformation video). But being the lipstick-lover I am, I naturally began to wonder how these would work on the lips. The…

Wet 'n Wild Limited Edition Lipsticks (Fall 2014)

Wet 'n Wild Limited Edition Lipsticks (Fall 2014)

Comparisons, Fall, Lips, Product reviews, Seasonal, Videos
Hey, guys! Today I have a video with lip swatches and a review of the ten lipsticks from the Wet 'n Wild Limited Edition Fall and Halloween Collections. I wanted to start with just the lipsticks from both of these collections because I already love the original line of these matte lipsticks, so I knew I'd be able to give a thorough review on any changes to the formula and packaging (spoiler: there are changes to both!). The Fall Collection can be found at any drugstore on a display, probably near the front of the beauty section or on an end cap. There are also some 5-pan eyeshadow palettes and "matte" nail polishes. The lipsticks from this collection are: Sweet Cream - Nude with a hint of pink Sunset Siren…

Hey, all! I'm going to close out what turned into a fall mini-series, with what got me interested in beauty in the first place: nail polish! I love how great I feel when I have freshly-painted nails. It can make something a mundane as holding a pen feel more exciting. I love digging out my fall colors because it gets me so inspired and excited for fall weather and outfits! Hopefully this will give you a little inspiration, too :) Fall Colors with a Cream Finish Cooler weather doesn't mean you have to suck the color out of everything! Fall is the most colorful time of year, and you can draw from those colors to bring some life to your nails. https://flic.kr/p/qb5idL Colors shown: Revlon Top Speed in Vintage -…

Hi, everyone! Since you guys seemed to like my fall lips post, I thought I'd do the same thing for blushes and nail colors, too! So look out tomorrow for the nail colors. Let's get to the blushes... The "goes with everything" neutral https://flic.kr/p/qbcvEM I wrote a post about this Milani blush because I love the color, texture, and packaging of it! A mauve blush is great for fall because they're usually not necessarily warm- or cool-toned, so you can reach for it any morning knowing it will look great. I also love this brownish blush, NYX in Cocoa. It gives the cheeks a little color but can look much more toned down than a bright color. A natural pink https://flic.kr/p/qb6bgj Some might argue that there's no room for pink…

Fall Lipsticks

Fall Lipsticks

Hi! As the weather cools down, it seems like everyone's pulling out their "fall lipsticks," but what kinds of shades count as in season, and what if the typical fall shades don't seem to suit you? Well it turns out "fall lipsticks" can cover a lot of ground when it comes to shade selection, so I've chosen what I think are some basic color categories that will look great this season. Deep berry I feel like this color is what comes to mind first for a lot of girls when they think "fall lipstick." This kind of shade can flatter many different skin tones and look great during the cold weather months. My favorite deep berry is MAC's Rebel, but I'll go for the Maybelline Color Whisper in Berry Ready…

Hi everyone, Autumn is taking a while to arrive in Pittsburgh, which is kind of nice compared to last year when it felt like we just went straight to winter. But in between heat waves I've gotten to experience a little bit of fall, so even though I'm typing this post wearing shorts, I'll be looking back to the last couple weeks for my responses! I was tagged to do this post by Tori from Notorious Beauty Blog. You should definitely check out her blog and YouTube channel! She's really sweet and gives such genuine reviews. Also, Tori: You mentioned in your tag that you're in SoCal for school...I'm from the Bay Area, so even though that's pretty far away it made me really happy. Now for the questions: 1)…
