I know, I know, that post never materialized, but you didn’t think I’d leave you hanging on the dresses?! Here’s my roundup of the celebrity fashion from the Golden Globes 2015.
From talking with people on Facebook last night, I know that some of my faves were not that popular, but, hey, this is my blog. 😉
Let’s start with the good:
To be honest, I didn’t even know who Julia Goldani Telles was, but I just knew that I ADORED the color of her dress. I felt like, overall, there was a lot of blahness on the red carpet, and this Carmen Marc Valvo grabbed me immediately. (more…)
I know. It happened ages ago. But I still wanted to share what I picked up in the Sephora VIB sale. Because of reasons.
Sick of autumn makeup looks? No? GOOD. Cause I’ve got an autumnal fotd for you, too. I actually stepped a little out of my comfort zone with this one, so hopefully it’ll meet your approval.
Requisite cheesy autumnal photo
Yes, you’re not seeing wrong. This is an actual blog post.* From moi. Because, you guys, I FINALLY HAVE A TOM FORD LIPSTICK OF MY VERY OWN!!! That’s definitely worth blogging about. So, behold: Tom Ford Matte Lipstick in Ruby Rush.
It’s SO HARD to mess up that monogram…ie, use it!!

I do have some new-ish purchases I’m getting ready to feature here, but the weather is not cooperating for photography. So I thought I may as well share my latest beauty lusts. We’ll see if they feature on here in the future, eh? 🙂
Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette in Couleurs 10
This may look like an odd choice, but do you see that muddy color up in the upper left hand corner? It’s muddy because it’s blue with golden shimmer and it’s BEE-YOO-TEE-FUL. You can see it better here and swatches here. I think my desire for the blue may stem from this photo of Valentine, though I’d be better off with a matte blue to recreate that look, and I’d probably pay less for it. At $60, I feel like YSL may have outpriced themselves with these new palettes. (Too bad, because it’s so prettttttty!!) (more…)

This is the week of haul follow-ups, it seems. And this time it’s the Make Up Store products that Karima was lovely enough to send to me. In particular, I wanted to highlight the Make Up Store Microshadow in Cashmere.
I’ve been on the hunt for my “holy grail” foundation, and because of all the raves it receives, I knew that Armani Lasting Silk Foundation HAD to be on the list.

I generally try to make beauty purchases based on my own personal wants (ha, no, not needs), and not on hype. Once in a while, I succumb—just as I did for Benefit’s new They’re Real Push-up Liner.
A couple of weeks ago, Birchbox, the monthly beauty box with the amazing points program,* hosted an event for their Birchbloggers at the Cynthia Rowley boutique. On display and for play was the Cynthia Rowley Spring Beauty Line. And I was one of the lucky few who won the entire collection to review.
(*In case you’re not familiar with it, Birchbox is a monthly subscription service where, for just $10 a month, you receive a box full of deluxe-sized and travel-sized samples. You receive Birchbox points for every purchase you make and every review your write, which can be redeemed in their store. For every 100 points you earn, you get $10 a full-sized product order. Get your own here.)
The road to the store looks like wonderland…

Today, I’m starting what I hope will be a new series on here, Comparatively Speaking. One of the things I find most valuable when buying new beauty products are swatches and color comparisons. Often, I can’t find comparisons of the specific products I’m looking for. Well, now, if you think like me and want to shop like me, it’s your lucky day, because I’m starting my own, and I’m starting with orange red lipsticks.
