What is Rainbow Masking?! MemeBox BonVivant Jelly Clay Mask Review

It’s been a while since I reviewed a new beauty product, so I figured it would be the perfect time to introduce this new trend of “Rainbow Masking.”   I’ve come to recognize that a one-mask-fits-all approach isn’t really working for me anymore.  I would end up spot treating my oil zones only to have to follow up with a sheet mask for my dry areas, doubling the amount of time

My Hair Transformation with Keratip Extensions (& Everything You Need to Know)

Amongst a sea of clip-ins, tape-ins, and even micro-bead individuals, keratip extensions reign supreme.  If you’ve followed me for a while you might remember that I’ve gone through quite a few crazy hair transformations in the past– barbie blonde, bubblegum pink, etc.– which left my hair pretty damaged.  I had crazy breakage and my hair wouldn’t hold evenly to color, leaving me with a splotchy, mousy shade of brown.  I

How to Give Yourself a Microdermabrasion Facial at Home

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that exfoliates and removes the topmost layer of dry, dead skin cells by use of tiny crystals.  The general idea is that once the stratum corneum (that topmost layer) is removed, the body interprets the exfoliation as a mild injury and rushes to replace the lost skin cells with new and healthy ones.  The skin’s surface is left improved, soft, glowing, and sans blemishes, fine lines, and

Borghese Classic Italian Beauty

I think we all get caught up in routine from time to time.  Personally, I get comfortable with wearing a “natural look” for weeks on end (read as: swipes of mascara with lazily blended concealer and chapstick).  Enter Borghese, a company that “combines classic Italian beauty and modern sensibility,” to remind me that getting dolled up once in a while isn’t a crime. Borghese Beauty was kind enough to send me enough product to

Battle of the Lip Balms

Lip balms don’t get enough credit.  They may not be able to create a vampy attitude like our favorite dark red lipstick or add that pop of shimmer like our can’t-live-without lip gloss, but without lip balm a perfect pout would never be possible.  Here are the products that have the ability to soothe and nourish even the dryest, most chapped of Winter lips as we transition into dewy, Spring beauty.

Lust List: Dripping in Gold

If there is ever a time when dripping in gold shimmer and sheen is appropriate, that time is now.  Late Summer is all about skin with a golden bronze glow; the only instance when gilded works as a neutral.  Here are my favorite bronzed buys of the moment. BLUSH Becca, Limited Edition Shimmering Skin Perfecter Pressed Powder in Blushed Copper SHADOW STICK Laura Mercier, Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Metallic

Soft Matte Ulta Haul

Which beauty store do you prefer, Ulta or Sephora?  I think they counter each other in different ways, but I do have to admit that Ulta consistently has the best sales.  I stopped by Ulta innocently looking for a dry shampoo, but once I realized the sale my will power was a wrap.  Here’s a little more on my newest of the new…
