August Favorites

Oh my – so much goodness I found in the month of August. The list may not be long, but the love I have for these products runs deep.


1. I am in┬álove, love loving this Blue Ionic BlueWave NanoIonic Square/Round Brush. The squarish design gives you so much more traction on wet hair to dry faster and with less frustration. Since I bought it, it’s been my go-to hair brush. The extra-large is shown here at $28, so it’s not even that pricey of a brush. bioionic.com

2. NARS you keep breathing new life into my makeup game. Case in point; Rigel. This metallic Rose Gold eyeshadow is so gorgeous I could weep. Yes, it’s just that good. It’s gorgeously light and luminous when applied dry, but apply wet for MAJOR shadow drama. You will be lit from within! $29 narscosmetics.com

Those have been my new favorites in the month of August. Still going strong today. Don’t you love trying something new and realizing you’ve been missing it your entire adult life, but didn’t know until just now? Yeah, me too.


Dream in Full Color: New Giveaway!

Don’t you just love playing around with eye makeup and finding new looks? I do! That’s why I’m especially excited to share Stila’s holiday Dream in Full Color palette with you.

Check it out! This pretty round palette includes 29 eye shadow colors, and along the outside edge, 7 gorgeous cheek colors! Also included is the Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Stingray.

And this is no tiny palette – it’s about 5.5 inches wide, so there’s no shortage of colors and you will be able to create hundreds of looks with all of these colors. Of the 29 colors, only 4 are shimmer free, so your looks will really sparkle this season.

The cheek colors range from a light dusty pink to a deep mauve and will suit many different skin tones. Still unsure about which colors to use together, or what might look best on you? The great people at Stila thought of that, and included a 16 page lookbook with directions on how to put an eye together and even which blush works best with which eye. Genius!

At a $366 dollar value, I am happy to announce that I’ve been given an extra that I can now give away to a lucky reader!

What do you have to do to qualify to win? It’s simple! Sign up to follow my blog and leave me a comment anytime between now and November 28th! I will choose a winner than night who will receive their very own Stila Dream in Full Color Palette for the holidays!
