Ladies and gentlemen - this is the moment we've been saving our gift cards for! The Sephora Beauty Insider Spring Event is upon us, y'all.

Navigating the sale can be a little daunting. So many beauty products, so little time (and money), am I right? In this post, I'll be sharing with you what's in my cart as well as sharing which products I already own and use that I think you'd like! Let me know in the comments what you'll be snagging in the sale!

Beauty | ColourPop Lux Lipsticks - Swatches + Review

Hey babes! Ugh, guys. We have the cold from hell this week. It's legit kicking our butts so I apologize for not getting this up sooner.

Recently, I tried the new ColourPop Lux Lipsticks ($7) and I'll be honest, I wasn't sure if I was going to like them or not. I mean, their Lippie Stix are my favorite. How would these Lux Lipsticks compare? Let's find out!

Beauty | The Skincare Round Up

* Some products were sent for review.

Isn't it funny? When I was younger, I could give a crap less about skincare (like baking in the sun without sunscreen 😡- DO NOT RECOMMEND EVER!) and now that I'm turning thirty this year, I'm like, "GIMME ALL THE MOISTURE." But seriously. Taking care of my skin has become a high priority for me. I'm so thankful that I have had skincare sent to me in the past but I know it can be confusing as a reader, wondering if I'm still even using those products. I know I wonder when I'm reading other blogger's post too. So I figured I'd compile my absolute faves; the ones that I've been using for awhile now and share them with you!

Please note: My skin is normal with some dryness between the brows and around the nose. I wear contacts but do not have sensitive eyes. I have one facial piercing (a nose ring). I just like sharing those stats with you so if you have similar or different skin types, you can kind of gauge if you'd think the products would be right for you.

Beauty | Wild Orchid

Spring is here - kind of. I mean, it's still in the 40's here but apparently my mind has wishful thinking lately because I've been so inspired by bright "spring" colors!

Beauty | Deck of Scarlet No. 7 w/ Roxette Arisa - Swatches + Review

*Product sent by Deck of Scarlet for review.

Hey, hey, hey! How's it going, guys? If you caught my Instagram Stories from a few days ago, then you might recognize this pretty little palette. It's the Deck of Scarlet No.7 Palette with Roxette Arisa

What's Deck of Scarlett, you might ask? It's kind of like a subscription box where a new palette will be sent straight to your door but instead of every month, this one is sent every two months. Each palette is curated by a popular YouTuber and is $29.95. You can skip a month at any time. They are cruelty free, paraben free and made in the good ol' USA.

Beauty | Down and Dirty

* Affiliate links used.

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope y'all had a safe St. Patrick's Day, if you celebrate. We do so I definitely ate my share of corned beef. Yummmm. Anyway. So, guys. Anyone spring cleaning yet? I know it's not officially spring but I've been trying to clean up my makeup collection by going through all of it and either throwing things out that have expired/will never use or trying diving back into older products and bringing them out to play again. Like, for today's look I used the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I don't even know why I stopped using it in the first place because it's insanely gorgeous! Let's check it out.
