I am starting to get very excited for fall! I used to dread the fall (probably because it made me think of going back to school) but now its my favorite season! So of course, I had to put together a wishlist for fall goodies!
This is definitely one of my favorite kinds of posts, simply because I am a nailpolish hoarder. So when it comes to picking out my favorite shades for a season, I generally gravitate towards whatever was just released. But there are a few oldies that I just absolutely love so keep an eye out for part two!
|L to R: Find Me An Oasis, Go Ginza, Romper Room, Cocktails & Coconuts, Spin The Bottle, Cute As A Button, Snap Happy|
I love pastels in the spring and summer (as I'm sure you could probably tell) but I also love bright and bold! And Cute As A Button is definitely within my top 5 favorite Essie shades...ever! Such a pretty shade.
Do you have favorite shades for a season? Are any of these included in your picks?
It’s hard to believe that it is already the end of April! Time has been flying!
Josie Maran Argan Oil
I have been using this stuff religiously this entire month and I absolutely love it, as you can see from my review. My favorite thing about this stuff is that my skin soaks it up so quickly, I can quickly jump into bed without worrying if it will spread. And the glow that it gives me the next morning is so wonderful, my skin no longer looks dull and dry. I’m only hoping that as I switch up my skincare routine that this will still remain one of my favorites!
Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eyeshadow Palette
I've been reaching for this palette much more than I originally thought I would. It features neutral shades, which are great for daytime but can be layered on to create a smokey look for going out at night. And its small enough that I can throw it my purse if I need to! You can see my full review here.
Laura Mercier Lip Glace
Now that it is finally not freezing, my lips don’t need the TLC that they so often crave in the winter. Which means I can easily reach for a lipgloss, ANY lipgloss for that matter! But this glossy pink has been my go-to this past month.
For the past couple months I have found myself reaching for the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb rollerball every single day. But now I am finally going back to my old favorite – the YSL rollerball that I absolutely love. There is something about this scent that reminds me of summer (probably because it was all I wore last summer) and I just love it!
This month has been an incredibly busy one for work and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t happy it was over. I have spent many countless hours working and it has been pretty obvious in my appearance. This stuff hasn’t solved all my problems but I definitely think it’s made a difference after having one of those long nights.
Now if there is one thing I need after a long night - it's this! Not only has this helped with my random skin problems (seriously, my skin has been acting up so bad this month) but its helped conceal the dark circles under my eyes perfectly. You can read the full review here.

Another day, another Urban palette review. Who can resist?
When I first laid eyes on this palette, I knew I had to have it. And I went out and bought it days after it was restocked at Sephora (of course it sold out within hours of its release)! But I have to admit, the reason I haven't reviewed it sooner is because I’m not that impressed with it.
In pictures, these colors are gorgeous! And they are great colors, with the usual UD pigmentation which makes for a perfect eyeshadow. Unfortunately, I just don’t think these colors are suitable for me. I use the same 2 colors every time I use this palette, but I never get much use out of the remaining shades.
With the said – I do think this palette is great for someone with darker skin than mine. But I don’t think these rose gold tones suit my already pale, pink skintone (at least not until I get a bit more of a tan). Of course, I'm sure I can always find a way to use the other shades, but for the cost of this palette...I'm not sure $52 was worth it for only two shades of daily use.
Below is the look I usually create using this palette. Its my two favorite shades: Liar & Factory.
Do you have this UD palette? Which one do you like the most?
