Best of Beauty 2015

Hi friends! Look who’s finally written their 2015 best of beauty post! It only took a bajillion years…

Asking me to pick my favorite makeup products is like asking me to pick a favorite child—it just can’t be done. I love all of them for different reasons. (Er…most of them, anyway.) That’s why, initially, I wasn’t going to write a 2015 favorites post. January is almost over, everyone else has done it, and I worried no one would want to read it. But then, one of my friends asked me to write it, and here I am. I’ve caved. Not all of these were 2015 discoveries, but I definitely used the heck out of all of them last year! I decided to save my skincare favorites for a future post—I’m long overdo for an updated skincare routine anyhow!

Without further ado, here’s my 2015 All Star Lineup!

Haul: Sephora VIB Rouge Sale

00_Haul

This is a tale about what happens when you lack self control… I’ve been trying really hard not to splurge on makeup the last few months. I have so many products that I really don’t need any new ones. But what fun is that? Any progress I’d made in sticking to a budget went completely down the drain during Sephora’s VIB Rouge Sale last week.

I went to Sephora not once, but twice during the sale. (Whoops!) I thought I’d sit down and take the chance to share my purchases with you. In an effort to keep this short, I’ll keep the product descriptions brief, but please feel free to let me know if you’d like me to do a review of any of these items in the comments below!

High End vs. Drugstore (Part Two)

A higher price tag doesn’t always mean higher quality. In this mini series, I’m comparing some of my favorite high end products with their drugstore equivalents. Today, we’re on to the fun stuff: eyes and lips!

(And in case you missed it, be sure to check out part 1, where I reviewed some of my most-loved face products.)

August Favorites

August Favorites

I’m always excited for August to be over. It’s hot in Washington, DC, and I look forward to cooler autumn weather. Fall brings colorful leaves, oversized scarves and cozy nights in. That being said, August was pretty decent.

I went to a friend’s wedding in Gettysburg. There was Shark Week. I saw one of my favorite bands perform. Several of my friends moved to my neighborhood, which has meant lots of excuses for happy hour and margaritas. I bought some new artwork and spruced up my apartment. And best of all, I got the chance to see two of my very best friends while they were in town, albeit briefly.

Here are a few of my favorite things from the month.
