I’ve seen this at my local drugstores and always wondered if it really worked.  e.l.f. recently had an online sale (FYI they have sales all the time) and I decided that for three bucks I should give this a whirl.  And… now I wonder why it took me so long to try this.  I’ve been using it every night before bed followed by a lip balm and my lips are in the best condition I think they’ve ever been.  For three dollars give this a try its awesome!!


e.l.f. says ::: Gently exfoliate lips to remove dry, chapped skin with our Lip Exfoliator! A sweet sugar and smoothing sensation, infused with Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Avocado, Grape and Jojoba Oils to nourish and protect.

With its sole focus on lips, Bite Beauty proves you don’t have to sacrifice performance for a product made from nature.


I picked up three of the available double ended lipsticks.


Now you are probably thinking that the top row looks very similar in color and tone.  I thought the same while swatching so I decided to put the colors I thought were similar side by side.


Latte is more brown compared to Café which has more of peachy tone.

Pepper is more brown toned compared to Cortado which looks more Mauve when compared side by side.

Latte and Pepper are very close in color and tone. Pepper is a little more of a deeper brown tone but they are super close. I don’t think you need both Latte/Cortado  and Pepper/Cafe since Latte and Pepper are so close you would just need to decide if you liked Cortdao or Cafe better.

These lipsticks are limited edition and can be found in store and online at Sephora for $14.00 

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer

Jergens Wet Skin moisturizer

I received the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer in an Influenster box about 4 or 5 months ago…. and I completely forgot about it until I was cleaning this past weekend and stumbled upon it.  There are three scents and I have the Nourishing Monoi Oil; this is what Jergins has to say….

“Step out of the shower and into a floral paradise with the nourishing, floral scent of monoi oil. JERGENS® Wet Skin Moisturizer contains a breakthrough new formula that blends with water when your skin is most receptive to moisture (right after bathing, when your pores are open). Simply rub in and pat dry. Enjoy the soft and smooth benefits of the monoi oil formula, wrap yourself in the scent of the Tahitian gardenia flower and get on with your day. ” 

First off the skin that is not on my face is fairly normal (face is super super oily).  I rarely get dry skin minus my elbows only in the dead of winter (which in Florida is like 5 days :) )  Because my skin is normal and doesn’t feel dry and tight I hardly ever use a moisturizer, body lotion or butter on my skin.  A lot of lotions and body butters are too thick and leave my skin feeling greasy and take a long time to soak in.

The first time I used this I wasn’t overly wowed.  And it is strange to use a lotion (albeit a very thin lotion) on your wet body.  It was ok but nothing that I felt was amazing.    I have used it four times now and I like it more every time! Don’t know what changed but my skin feels very soft after using and I like that I  don’t feel greasy.  If you have very dry skin this probably won’t do much for you.  But if you are like me and have normal to moderately dry skin I think you may like this.  This retails from $5.99–$7.99 so if you would like to give this a go you may want to shop around and make sure you are getting the best price.

Colourpop Fall 2015 Lippies

I’ve been a big fan of Colourpop since the company was started a little over a year ago.  When their Fall collection was released I took a peek and decided that I needed to pick up a few things.  Six Lippie Stix were released and I picked up two.

September Favorites



Its that time again… Monthly Favorites Time! 


New York Color Liquid Lipshine in Rivington Rose — $2-$4 depending on where you buy it

This is a great neutral mauve-y pink that goes with anything.  And it makes your lips look glossy without being sticky and you can’t beat the price!

e.lf. Studio Contour Palette — $6.00

PicMonkey Collage

This Contour Palette is the bomb dot com!  I absolutely love it.  All of the shades (two bronzer and two highlighters) are pigmented and blend really well.  The highlighters are not super shiny or glittery so if that’s what you like you will not be a fan of these, but if like me you like a little sheen and brightening you will love them.

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara — $ 6.99-7.99 depending where you buy.


This is one of those products that I’ve heard people rave about and I just never tried it.  Ulta had a sale on Covergirl so I decided to give this a whirl and I have to say I’m very impressed.  Definitely separates the lashes (no clumps duh!) but it still give volume and length.

theBalm CabanaBoy Blush — $21.00

PicMonkey Collage123

This blush is a dusty rose color with a plum overtone that is perfect for fall!  I think I wore it every day this week.  Also never pay full price for products from theBalm.  Their website has sales all the time and they are also on Hautelook quite a bit.  You might want to also check out your local Kohl’s their products can often be found there as well.

Orgins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores — $25.00


This mask features activated charcoal which acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers. It also has White China clay which absorbs environmental toxins, and lecithin dissolves impurities. Lots of fancy talk to say that this mask makes my skin feel amazing.  Very soft and smooth and the areas that get congested with grease and gunk (nose, cheeks and sometimes chin) feel cleaned and refreshed after using this!

L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eye Liner in True Teal –$7.99-8.99 Depending on where you buy it


I decided to try this eye liner after hearing one of favorite Youtubers Coffee Break with Dani  rave about it earlier this year.  I picked up True Teal for me and Black for my mom.  These eye liners are great for your water and tight line.  For the most part they don’t move and if they do fade I don’t get weird goop in the corner of my eyes like most eyeliners do to me.  When Ulta has a sale on L’oreal I will be picking up a few more of these!

Let me know what you enjoyed in the month of September and what you are looking forward to in October! 

Products I’ve Hit Pan On— Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer in Brightner


Umm, Yeah the title of this product is a mouthful, but I will show forgiveness because it is awesome!  If you are an avid reader of beauty blogs or watcher of beauty gurus on YouTube I’m sure this isn’t the first time you have heard of this product.  I’ve been using it for over a year now and I think this is the 2nd or 3rd tube I’ve gone through.  I used the ‘Brightner’ shade for concealing under my eyes and also as a highlighter on my forehead, down the middle of my nose, under my nose and on my chin.  If I set with a powder this stays in place all day. It is a light pink/salmon color which is great for color correcting dark circles.

Here is what Maybelline had to say about their product…

Micro-corrector applicator + super concentrated formula instantly creates a radiant, refreshed looking eye area. Super concentrated formula with goji berry + haloxyl helps to erase the appearance of dark circles and fine lines, while visibly diminishing the appearance of puffiness around the eyes.

I have already purchased a back up and will be breaking into it as soon as this is all used up! My only complaint (and its minor)  is that after a certain period of time, my sponge tip always seems to fall off.  I can still use it no problem so its not a big issue for me.
