Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream + Sleeping Mask Giveaway!

Recently, Laneige launched in Target stores nationwide and I could not be more excited. I've loved this brand since I got my hands on it at the Amore store in queens. Not to mention, it is extremely high quality products for a reasonable price! 

The first product that I've been loving is the Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream. Generally, I don't like any types of cream facial moisturizer and I tend to go for gel bases because it leaves a thick film on my face that makes my skin greasy. This one has truly been an exception. It's thick, yet light weight… goes deep down into my skin without feeling sticky or greasy. What a lovely product!

The second product is the Water Sleeping Mask. I've loved this for years and apparently all around the world people do! It's actually my favorite product of their line! It's an extra hydration mask that helps revitalize and moisturize your skin as you sleep. This has been amazing for my skin during the colder weather when my skin is parched. It also has really helped to hydrate my eczema! I wake up feeling plump (haha my facial skin.. not my body) and hydrated! 

Here's your chance now to win both products! :D

Miranda Kerr sports Jouer at the Oscars party!!

Yesterday, Miranda Kerr sported ALL Jouer products at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscars Party. I saw the picture first at the Jouer cosmetics instagram site and was so excited. Celebrity Makeup Artist, Lisa Storey, was able to give us the rundown on how to achieve this gorgeous look!!!! Check it out!! 

 “To begin, I prepped the skin with Jouer Anti-Aging Moisture Primer followed by Luminizing Moisture Tint in Golden.  I applied Age-Repairing Perfecter no. 2 in Crème for more coverage where needed and Age-Repairing Brightener in Medium under the eye area.  

On Miranda’s eyes I applied Crème Eyeshadow Crayons in Rococo over the lid, blending the outer corner with Crème Eyeshadow in Baroque. I dusted Powder Eyeshadow in Walnut in the crease and blended upward and outward.  I lined the inner eye with Eye Definer in Chocolat, finishing her look with lashings of Everyday Effortless Mascara in Noir.

The brows were gently filled with Brow Definer in Cendre.

For cheeks I patted Tint in Poppy on the cheeks, then after a light dust of Mineral Face Powder in Perle Naturel, I applied Mineral Powder Blush in Peach Bouquet.  

I completed the look with Hydrating Lipstick in Grace.”  - Lisa Storey

Not gonna lie - I feel so glamorous knowing that Miranda Kerr and I sport the same two creme shadows, powder shadows and blush!!! Now I feel like I need to get the rest of these products to get the look!!! :P

Faux Leather + Cali Fun OOTD

Okay. Please don't judge me too harshly since I don't think I have the best style. But I had so much fun dressing myself up in California and finally wearing something that wasn't my huge winter coat and snow boots that I decided to do an OOTD :)

Growing up, I never wore anything that resembled leather because I always felt like only "skinny girls" that were badass could pull it off. I've really been wanting to step out of my comfort zone in my wardrobe and become a bit bolder. I really gravitated toward this faux leather vest because I felt like it gave me just the edge without giving me a complete complex that I looked terrible. I paired it with a t-shirt that says "love makes me high" because it was so fun - and lets be honest, I got it for $4 at loehmanns since it is (was?) closing!

Oh how I miss the gorgeous weather already!! :)

Top: Loehmann's Tshirt, H&M Cardigan, Echo Faux Leather Vest
Bottom: Guess by Marciano Jeans 
Shoes: Tesori 
Accessories: Lulifama Sunglasses, Kate Spade Watch, Ring from small boutique in LA!

Happy Valentine's Day! (well almost! :)

Brilliant Diamonds, which is an ethically sourced diamond website, recently contacted me to ask if I was interested in participating in their Create Little Love Campaign -- and to share a picture representing 'love' ---- so..

I'm doing a #tbt here! on the eve of valentine's day, I just wanted to let you all know how much I adore you all and love you all! I wasn't able to post a nail of the day for vday this year, but I wanted to reshare with you my 3d valentine's nail look from last year! :)

Valentine's day is my favorite day to share love with others. It was my mother's absolute favorite holiday. Growing up on that day, she would shower us with gifts and love and spend all her time doing special things for us. Even though we should share love every day, she said that having one special day to remind us all to celebrate this beautiful thing called love, was such a beautiful idea. So now it's become one of my favorite holidays. A holiday to spread love, to love deeper and for me, an extra special day to remember the greatest love of all - Jesus Christ who died on the cross for us.

So I hope you take this day to remember those around you that you love and remember how loved you are! who cares if you are single or not! you are soso loved by so many others <3 especially me! xoxo


Jouer Lip Glosses Swatches + Review

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love Jouer glosses. These have essentially taken over all my glosses and are now among the most used glosses that I have.

These are among some of the most moisturizing, non sticky, hydrating and plush lip glosses I own. They are packed with Vitamin E, jojoba seed oil and shea butter for this amazingly buttery, smooth pout.

I have these lip glosses in four different shades. Three of these glosses are a creamy milky finish and one of them is more of a jelly finish. I didn't choose any lip glosses with shimmer, but they do have a great range of shimmery glosses as well!
I love the sleek, simplistic packaging of these! L-R: Malibu, Divine, Peony, Wind
It has a standard doe foot applicator :) I do wish that each time I took it out, it packed more gloss on the applicator. Maybe this is because I want to douse my lips in the color, but I have to dip approximately 3 times to get the amount of gloss  I'd want!
Naked Lips. Oh. So DRYYYY! 
Malibu: It's a jelly-ish finish. Although the color in the tube is pretty 'hot pink' it only gives a lovely hint / wash of color. It almost looks like a glossy reddish pink stain.  

Peony: This has as nice creamy finish. I love this dreamy cool pink color. This looks great on its own, but looks SO nice layered on top of colors. This always just gives that perfect hint of pink.  
Wind: This also has as creamy, milky finish. This is literally for me, the perfect nude pink. It looks great layered, but gives enough color to wear on its own. I love how it has just the perfect amount of pink to not make me look dead! haha! 
Divine: This is such a lovely creamy color. They describe this as a creamy rose. It's such a perfect my lips but better color. It this neutral, slightly brown rose color. It looks SO effortless! This is probably my favorite of the bunch!  
Here are the swatches. Top to Bottom: Peony, Wind, Divine, Malibu
Overall, I am just so obsessed! I just wish that they had more retailers close to me so I can check out the colors before I purchase! All the colors I have purchased, I absolutely adore, so it may be worth the gamble! lol! :) 

You can purchase these lip glosses for $20 online at jouercosmetics, nordstrom, and at these retailers

Hourglass Ambient Powder Blush in Radiant Magenta

Hi dollfaces! So I ordered the Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush in Radiant Magenta when Sephora was doing an exclusive VIB sale. I debated getting the other ones, but I decided this one caught my eye the most.

Here is my pretty little blush in Radiant Magenta. The site described this color as a 'golden fuchsia' and its a gorgeous medium pink that leans warm (although it shows on my face as more of a cool pink). Although it has that beautiful golden veining, the shimmer is not overpowering… in fact it looks almost more like a satin finish blush rather than one that is very glittery.

These are very reminiscent of the Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Powders as they feel so soft and silky. They have very finely milled powders that go on effortlessly, blends easily and are very buildable.

To the left is the hourglass blush. I LOVE the packaging and everything about it! (although the font is eh!). To the right is the ambient powder just for comparison purposes :) Their blushes are .15oz and the powder is .35oz

The right side is just a slight wash of color and the left is the color built up. As you can see, you can make the color very natural or very pigmented depending on the look you are going for!

Overall, this blush is lovely. Although not entirely unique (as I have many blush colors in a similar shade!), the blendability and the way it performs is what makes this product worth checking out :)

You can purchase these blushes for $35 online at the hourglass website or at sephora on 2/21.
Will you be picking any up!??!
