Milani recently came out with a new line of matte lipsticks- which I’m all about! Milani Color Statement Lipstick Moisture Matte comes in 8 runway inspired shades that have a cashmere matte finish and last for hours.

I was sent 4 shades to test out: Matte Naked, Matte Diva, Matte Passion, and Matte Glam. See how pigmented they are?

Side note: The 2 colors in Passion and Diva are pretty much dupes for MAC Lady Danger and Candy Yum Yum! Pretty impressive for a drugstore brand!

First off is my favorite of the bunch, Matte Naked! This shade is the ultimate “your lips but better” medium brown-nude shade. This is my perfect every day shade- I love how it looks on me!

Next is Matte Diva, a nearly neon blue toned bubblegum pink. This one is remarkably similar to MAC Candy Yum Yum, I’m impressed! Definitely going to get a lot of use this summer.

Matte Passion is a fiery orange-red that is a dupe for MAC Lady Danger. I think orange-reds are the most flattering on me, so I love it! I wish they came out with a regular orange though, that would be amazing.

Matte Glam is a grape purple shade that is definitely the least wearable, but it looks great on! I had trouble with this one not being able to stick in the center of my lip, though, and it’s probably the least pigmented of the bunch. Prone to streaks, but it’s a fun shade to say the least!

Overall I’m loving these lipsticks because the matte formula is great and pretty hard to find at drugstores. Also, they smell great, like vanilla frosting! And did I mention cruelty free? Milani Color Statement Matte Lipsticks can be found at CVS stores nationwide starting at $4.99.

ScentBird Fragrance Subscription Service Review (YSL Cinema) | Video

ScentBird Monthly Fragrance Subscription Service Review Yves Saint Laurent Cinema Perfume
ScentBird Fragrance Subscription

I recently had the opportunity to try out a perfume subscription service called Scentbird. I thought the idea was pretty smart, as I like wearing numerous scents rather than having a signature perfume. For $14.95 a month you get to pick a scent to try or choose one of the pre-selected scents determined by a little quiz. Watch my unboxing of my scent, Yves Saint Laurent Cinema, below!

Yves Saint Laurent Cinema is a somewhat seductively sweet scent. The notes include clementine, almond blossom, cyclamen, jasmine, peony, amaryllis, musk, and vanilla. Although it has a lot of floral notes, it doesn’t overwhelm or smell old lady-ish or powdery. I think it is a sophisticated scent and I enjoy it so far.

Overall I think the service is a great idea. I think there should be more scents to choose from- I think more niche or higher end brands such as Jo Malone or Penhaligon’s would be a great addition and make me want to subscribe myself. I was also a little confused because I didn’t get the traditional black case and velvet pouch that the vials usually come in, but I think that was an isolated error. And, like I mentioned in the video, having a card with information on the scent you’re being sent would be ideal so you don’t have to research that on the internet after the fact. Would you subscribe to a fragrance subscription like Scentbird? Let me know in the comments!

Kiko Cosmetics Eyebrow Marker Review

Kiko Cosmetics Eyebrow Marker 3 Strawberry Blondes and Redheads Review
Kiko Cosmetics Eyebrow Marker

When I was studying abroad in Italy, Kiko Cosmetics became both mine and my friend’s favorite place to shop. I made a few purchases at Kiko, but by far the best is the Kiko Cosmetics Eyebrow Marker in Shade 3 (€5,90).

I love the formula of this brow marker- it gets the perfect natural brow without any fuss. I haven’t been able to live without it since September! My first pen wore out after about 5 months, but I’m hoping I can last a while with this one. Apparently shade 3 is meant for blondes and redheads, but I think it suits me just fine. The marker is so easy to use to get the perfect brow look.

I wish I had all of the other shades to test in an unlimited supply, because this product is that good…BUT, there are no stores in California! Luckily there are a few stores in the U.S., but no online store. So, if you live in Miami, Connecticut, New Jersey, or New York, consider it your lucky day! Run, don’t walk, to pick up this brow marker & don’t forget to grab me one!

Tinder Stories

Today I’m switching things up and doing a more personal video- which I look forward to doing more of soon! I use Tinder a lot to meet guys and (hopefully) try to date. Not sure how it’s going to work out, but at least I get some funny messages to entertain the world with…

Sleep Solutions Featuring RESCUE Sleep Liquid Melts

Sleep Tips Solutions featuring Bach Rescue Sleep Liquid Melts Natural Sleep Aid

I, like many others have issues falling asleep. I think it’s due to the fact that I’m somewhat of a night owl and can’t seem to get off of my phone for a long period of time.

I was introduced to RESCUE Sleep Liquid Melts ($9.99) recently, and they have made falling asleep that much easier! These homeopathic melts were developed my a doctor to help you stress less and sleep easier. They also have RESCUE Pearls, Gum & Pastilles for natural stress relief. They are available at CVS, Walgreens, Whole Foods, and Sprouts in the U.S.- I couldn’t find the stress products, but I really want to try! The sleep melts really work- I took these at 8:30 and had to be in bed at 10:30- they work quicker than I thought!

But, for those of you that don’t want to use a product to help you sleep, here are a few of my tips to make falling asleep at night easier.

  • Use A Sleep Mask: If you need to be in pitch black like I do, a sleep mask helps a lot! I just bought a cheap one off of eBay because it was cute. But, there are more heavy-duty ones that will make it as pitch black as possible!
  • Avoid Caffeine: If you’re a soda, coffee, or tea lover- try using caffeine-free alternatives in the afternoon. That mid-day cup of coffee may be keeping you up at night!
  • Turn Off Technology: Try to tune out an hour or two before bed- the bright lights stimulate your brain. If you can’t live without your phone like I can, turn the brightness down a bit.
