The System

Saturday, November 15, 2014

Everyone has that one thing they love to do in their downtime. Mine happens to be painting my nails, which I end up doing pretty much all the time. Taking care of my nails is important, too; no one likes yellow residue from their favorite buttercup yellow polish, do they? I sure don’t. Sephora came out with its own nail range last year called Formula X. Along with a ton of polish color options, they have a nail care system. This three-step system is a routine of mine before putting the actual color on my nails.

The Primer that Makes You "That Gal"

Friday, November 14, 2014

Primers are like the glue that holds everything together – in terms of my face, that is. I swear by Urban Decay’s for my eyes and I’ve recently switched to Benefit’s “That Gal” brightening face primer for my foundation.

Victoria's Secret Hair

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Victoria’s Secret is a store that doesn’t typically have a wide range of perfumes, body care, or even hair care. But with a new look and formula, the Victoria’s Secret Hair line features [insert number of shampoo/conditioners] and [other types of hair care]. I tried out the Major Volume shampoo and ended up using about an Oreo-cookie size of the shampoo. I’m accustomed to more concentrated shampoo, so this was a bit of a let down for me. But the shampoo did get quite sudsy and lathered really well once in my hair. It also smells like the Body by Victoria scent, which is a very nice, clean, shampoo-appropriate scent. This hair care line is definitely worth a try if you’re into trying new things on your hair – and it’s almost always on a promo deal!

Benefit Majorette Blush

Monday, November 10, 2014

Lately I have been into a lot of Benefit’s products. From the They’re Real! Push-up Liner to “That Gal” Primer, I am all wrapped up in Benefit goodness. Another addition to my collection is the Majorette blush. With the product housed in an adorable round compact, this blush adds a pop of color to anyone’s cheeks. Made with pomegranate oil, it smells faintly sweet and is good for layering under other blush colors.

Majorette is also a cream to powder blush, which works as the perfect color booster on skin. I love the peachy-pink shade of this blush and I think it could work on anyone. Benefit’s website recommends applying it with the fingertips but I prefer to use a blush brush from Sonia Khusk at Target. I’ve applied it to the apples of my cheeks alone, but I may try out layering it with my Orgasm blush from NARS or my illuminating powder from Milani.
