Drugstore liquid lipsticks/ Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme

I cannot tell you how excited I was when I heard about these Milani liquid lipsticks. Milani lipsticks are some of my favorites from the drugstore and when I heard about these, I knew I had to get my hands on them.

Cheaper alternative to liquid lipstick?

Liquid Lipsticks have been all the rage lately. Every company has come out with their own version of liquid lipsticks, some high end and some low end.

DIY | My Hair Transformation

At Home Cut, Color, & Hair Treatment

It's been way too long but I'm back with a blog post that I'm so excited to share. As you can see in my before picture above, I've really been neglecting my hair for the past year or so. I can't even tell you what color that is and don't even get me started on the damage I've done to it. It's an absolute mess and anyone that knows me knows that I never really wore my hair down. It's always in a braid or a bun because I didn't want anyone to notice how dry and coarse it was.

Drugstore Alternatives to Mac lipstick in Twig

MAC's lipstick in Twig has been very popular this past year. I would describe it as a pink brown color. It doesn't lean too pink or too brown but depending on what color lip liner you pair this with you can choose to bring out more of the pink or the brown in it. Since it is a very popular color because of the whole 90's  mauve/ pink brown lipsticks coming back in style it seems to be sold out a lot. I decided to go through my drugstore makeup and see if I could find some colors that resembled Twig.

10 Minute Glowy Mom on the Go Makeup

As you may already know by now I have a 2 year old son and when he's ready to leave the house we need to be out the door. This leaves me with no time at all to look presentable on most days. I came up with this simple makeup look that makes me feel great and the best part is it takes 10 minutes or less. This is my go to look I've been wearing the past week that any one can do because it's simple, only requires a few products, and it's all drugstore.

Wet n Wild Smoke and Melrose and Melrose at Night

I've definitely been a fan of Wet n Wild for the past year. They've changed a lot for the better since the last time I used them many years ago. They always come out with limited edition palettes in colors that don't really interest me so I didn't realize how hard these 2 limited edition palettes would be to track down. They came out along with a few other palettes for Fall 2014 but these 2 were the only ones that attracted me because of the rose and taupe colors. I couldn't find them anywhere at any drugstores I went to and just when I gave up and got over it I finally found them.
