Hello, my pretties! ♥

I know I've said it before, but here goes again... I hate doing my nails. Correction. I used to hate doing my nails (you can see why here and here). But the Nail Gods have smiled upon me and while attending Tips & Sips 2015 this past July, I was fortunate enough to learn about an awesome brand of gel nail polish: ASP Nails.

Now, let me start by saying, I have never tried gel nail polish before and knew little about it. So, I ventured into it to see how things would turn out and well... this Soak Off Gel Polish Complete Starter Kit by ASP Nails has changed my life! It may sound a bit excessive to you but, believe me, I'm not exaggerating. Let me tell you why I love it so much, just in case you're thinking of getting your hands on this kit.

Hello, my pretties! ♥

Here's another awesome product find from Cosmoprof North America 2015 → LightStim.


LightStim is a non-invasive LED light therapy device that can be used at home. It emits and delivers UV-free light rays that stimulate our body's natural process to regenerate cells and proteins. There are three different types of LightStim: For Wrinkles, For Pain & For Acne. This time I will be talking about LightStim For Wrinkles.

Skinn Cosmetics Plasma Fusion Full Pigment Lipsticks {Review}

Hello, my pretties! ♥

While in Las Vegas for Cosmoprof North America 2015, there were several brands that really caught my attention - Skinn Cosmetics is one of them.

The whole concept behind Skinn Cosmetics is that instead of investing money into expensive packaging, advertising or celebrity endorsements, they take that money and invest it into the product inside of the jar. Pretty cool, huh? I will be talking about other Skinn products in the near future again because there is more to cover. This time, I will be telling you all about Skinn Cosmetics Plasma Fusion Full Pigment Lipsticks.

Star Wars + Covergirl Collaboration! ♥ {First Look | Press Release}

Hello, my pretties! ♥

Back in June 2015, Nerdist wrote an article about the new collaboration happening between Star Wars & Covergirl. Needless to say, my mind was lost. I didn't originally post anything because I was waiting for either one of these major companies to disclose something officially. Well, here it is! Covergirl has officially announced as of this morning they are creating a Limited Edition makeup collection for those of us who are absolutely in love with the Star Wars franchise.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens is set to be released on December 18, 2015. I don't know about you, but that is one freakin' awesome early Christmas gift (if you ask me!). This new collaboration collection will be released September 4, 2015. So, if you're interested, make sure to keep your eyes peeled because I'm 1000% sure it's gonna fly off the shelves as soon as it's out in the market.

Here's a first look at what the collection will look like:

Hello, my pretties!

In my last blog post, I shared with you my experience and thoughts on ColourPop Cosmetics. This time, I want to share with you all the products I used and how I used them to create this makeup look. I called it Classy Glam because that is exactly what it is! A classy makeup look that is perfect for times when you want to look a little more glamorous without feeling like you caked on piles of makeup. If you want to recreate this makeup look, just pull out your Super Shock Shadows & let's play! ♥

ColourPop Cosmetics {1st Impression, Review & Swatches}

DISCLAIMER: This is not a sponsored post.

Hello, my pretties! ♥

First of all, sorry for this super delayed review. It has basically been sitting in my drafts for several months and I kept postponing its release for one reason or another. Oopsies! *bad Liz, bad Liz...* 

After much thought and hearing a bunch of different bloggers & YTers rave about this brand, I ended up buying a small batch of products to check them out and see what all the hype was about. Sometimes, I take outrageous online claims with a grain of salt because products can be easily over-hyped by people who receive samples or get paid by companies for sponsorships → Just keeping it real here... And this time, it was no different. I kept waiting for the bad reviews, but they never came. So curiosity got the best of me (don't judge me, I'm a girl who likes makeup) and, finally, I bit the bullet and placed my 1st order of ColourPop Cosmetics to try out. Today, I'm sharing with you my 1st impression, full review & swatches. Enjoy!
