VIDEO: Final Thoughts on Curly Hair Products, Skincare, Self Tanner & More!

Thursday, April 27, 2017




Each month I hang on to the products that I've used up so I can share my final thoughts on them, and if I plan to repurchase. I'm always in "declutter" mode because I have countless products but tend to stick to my favorites that I know work. These videos help motivate me to finally finish up products and share my final thoughts.

This month's video contains lots of hits and misses for various curly hair product lines I was testing from Kenra, Moroccan Oil, Living Proof and more. I also finished up some of my favorite skincare products (we'll see how long I can wait to repurchase until I use up my other stuff).

VIDEO: Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lipstick Swatches & Review

Sunday, April 23, 2017


The new Smashbox Be Legendary Lipsticks are described as for "Lips that get likes" and I couldn't agree more. These are ultra-pigmented liquid lipsticks that come in both cream and metallic finishes. They're thick, but not sticky, and go on smoothly in just one coat. They're somewhat long-wearing, but you will need to re-apply a few times a day.

A few downsides, in my opinion: The shade range is definitely broad for bold colors, but there are only a handful of "natural" shades. I would have loved to see some more nude tones. Also for the metallic shades, some were not as smooth to apply as the others and I found them getting patchy on the inner rims of my lips. However, this could be because I was applying them after wiping my lips with a makeup remover wipe which could have left a bit of residue. A tiny bit of foundation or concealer brushed over the lips prior to applying would ensure a smoother application.

Overall, I loved the formula and insane pigmentation. There's probably about 5 or so that I could see myself wearing on a daily basis.

VIDEO: How to Get White Teeth Fast! Bianco Smile Review & Results

Sunday, April 16, 2017

Being a huge coffee and wine lover, my teeth can get pretty stained if I don't maintain them often. I've always loved using at-home teeth whitening treatments because it's more affordable than going to a dentist. I've tried quite a few, and some take longer to work than others.


The Bianco Teeth Whitening Kit whitens your teeth in just 7 days. It's safe and effective, and does not cause any sensitivity like some whiteners can do. My favorite part is the self-molding mouth tray which contains the gel around your teeth and allows for more comfortable wear. It works in just 20-30 minutes, and you'll start to notice results after a couple uses.

Below are my results after 7 days.


Bianco Smile also donates a portion of proceeds to the Smile Train Foundation of Australia, that benefits those with oral impairments. Check out their site here for more information and to shop the 50% off + Free Shipping sale!

VIDEO: Practical Makeup for the Average Person

Sunday, April 02, 2017



Typical YouTube makeup tutorials are filled with chiseled contouring, highlighter, brows, smokey eyeshadow and more. Who has time for all that on a daily basis?! I'm sharing a minimal makeup look that the average person can achieve, whether it be for when you're rushed for work, school, or you just don't feel up to a 1000 step makeup look that requires endless products.

I created this "practical" makeup look using just a couple products and only 2 brushes. It's ideal for anyone from mature skin, teens, busy moms, etc!
