Beauty & Fashion Haul! Sephora, VS, ASOS, Old Navy | Video

This month I’ve started to prepare for my study abroad by purchasing some clothes and some makeup I thought I’d need! I only found a few things, but I thought they were worth haulin’! I am the type to wear the same outfits over and over again, so this haul was a bit overdue. But now I’m going to try to refrain from shopping since I’m saving up for a computer upgrade (from PC to MacBook!) before I leave in September! Watch the video to see what I picked up, and shop my haul with Chippmunk, which I’m just trying out for the first time! They have coupons for all of the places I shopped at!

Sephora:
Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Sample worth the mention: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso

Victoria’s Secret:

ASOS:

What was your fave thing I hauled? Comment below!

P.S. Sorry this is such a lackluster post…I’m writing it less than 12 hours before posting, and I just got back from a long video shoot that I can’t wait to share with you once it’s live within the next 2 months. But for now, my lips are sealed!

Orange You Glad Tangerine Tuesday Is Back?

Tangerine Tuesday Orange Lipstick Collection Olivia Frescura

Piles and piles of orange lip products

Today I have some exciting news (well, at least for me)- I’m bringing Tangerine Tuesday back! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve done a post on an orange makeup product. Which is a bummer, because orange is my trademark! Since I started rocking orange lips in late 2011 and started the series in May 2012, orange has become a much more popular makeup shade. YAY! More orange for me, more orange for you. Look out for more TT posts in the coming weeks, starting slow with some orange lipsticks, but I promise more is to come- the sky is the limit!

Share in the comments- what is your fave orange/coral makeup product?

NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte Review

NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte Review

NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte

I picked up NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte a few months ago at The Makeup Show LA. I wanted to have a brightening liner for my waterline to replace my Pixi Eye Bright Liner, and the cherry on top was that Miley Cyrus wore this to the 2014 Clive Davis Grammy Party. Bless Phillip Picardi at Teen Vogue for that reporting!

NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte Review (2)

NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte

Rue Bonaparte is described as a light almond. It’s a creamy nude with a yellow undertone, which I prefer for my skin tone! I wear this liner every day (at least every day that I wear makeup), and at first, I didn’t realize how long wearing it was since it was such a light shade. I find that after 4 hours I can still see it, which is pretty much unheard of for lining on the waterline! It’s super creamy and glides on like a dream, but then lasts ages. I’m so impressed with it. Although I don’t buy a lot of makeup products thanks to my blogging and YouTube, I’d repurchase this in a heartbeat!

I don’t wear a ton of eyeliner, so this nude shade is perfect for my waterline. I occasionally will add a darker liner underneath Rue Bonaparte to define my eyes a bit more, but that’s about as crazy as I get! It’s the perfect liner for every day, I adore it! It’s the perfect alternative to a white liner for brightening and widening your eyes to look more awake.

Pick this up at Sephora for $24, and it’s a lot of bang for your buck! I’ve seen the light and I’m never going back to sub-par eyeliner.

Messy Loose Curls w/ Cortex Curling Wand (How I Curl Short Hair) | Video

Messy Loose Curls Tutorial Cortex Curling Wand Pantene Batiste Jonathan Sexy Hair Video Tutorial

Curling my hair is pretty much my favorite way of styling my hair. But, I’m kind of lazy so I don’t make the time for it often. Although my hair is short, I have a ton of hair and it takes forever to curl. I like a more messy curl, like loose waves. The look is sophisticated and sassy at the same time, and is my event go-to style!

Hello Cheri Massage Candle & Oil Review | Fragrance Friday

Hello Cheri Massage Candle Hello Rendezvous Cologne Hello Amour Fig Massage Oil Fragrance Review

Hello Cheri Cologne Massage Candle & Fig Massage Oil

Today I have 2 products from a new brand called Hello Cheri, both designed for massage. I was a bit hesitant at first, as the site is focused towards all things intimate. But, I took a leap of faith since I enjoy candles and all things that smell nice. I was sent the Hello Rendezvous Cologne Massage Candle and Hello Amour Fig Massage Oil. Although these are both geared towards massage, since I am using them for myself, I can’t say I’ve used them in that manner. I just simply light the candle and let it fragrance my room with the scent of cologne. It’s very “single white female,” but I love the scent of cologne candles. The candle is made from soybean oil, which I thought was interesting. It has a nice clean burn and really fragrances my small room, even though it’s just a 4 oz candle. I can’t speak towards the massage part of the candle, as I am not a huge fan of massage candles because they’re too oily for me. I thought the Fig Massage Oil would be nice to use after the shower as a leg moisturizer. I liked how it made my legs feel, but it took forever to absorb into my skin. So, a preferred method is adding a few drops into a body butter or lotion, just to up the amp. I can’t say I love the scent of fig, but it’s a light enough scent that you can’t smell it once it’s on your body. The oil is a combination of jojoba, sweet almond, apricot, and sunflower oils.

The massage oil and candle come in an array of different scents. I think I’d like it better if the scents from the candle and oil matched, so they could be used in combination. The only “match” is their Sandalwood and Woods scents, so if you want a matching candle and oil, look for those scents. The candle costs $13.95 and the oil costs $16.95, which are not too pricey for what they’re being used for.
