I recently purged a lot of my foundation collection. It sounds terrible to admit, but I was holding onto a lot of foundations that were either so completely not my shade, that I hated, and that were just too old to put on my face. Why let them take up precious space when there is a whole, wide world of better options. right? What am I getting at... Oh, right. The Revlon PhotoReady Candid Collection recently found its way to me, and I have to say, I've been incredibly happy with it.

Cool for the Summer | Sothys Summer Chill Collection Eyeshadow Palette

: : : press sample : : :

I've got a heap of summery products to get to. I'm trying to plan as many themed posts as possible to get everything in, but to get things started, I'm feeling a one product post. Does it get through the backlog? Not exactly, but sometimes it just feels right. Especially with the Sothy's Summer Chill Collection Eyeshadow Palette, as it's a little different for summer as it runs a little cool. Everyone has warm, bronzey shades for summer, so I was intrigued that this is something a little less typical.

Hair Helper | L'Oreal Magic Shampoo Invisible Dry Shampoo

: : : self-purchased / / affiliate links : : :

I think it's pretty safe to say dry shampoo is a must-have beauty item for, well, anyone with hair. It's just so convenient, since as we all know, washing hair is just more work. All that said, I do remember a time before dry shampoo was readily available (I know, dark times...) and when there really weren't many options at the drugstore level. Clearly, those days are behind us and it seems every brand has something to offer. I take that as a personal challenge, and am always up to try the newest offerings. Are they all winners though...

Summer days are trying to peek through, and I'm sure once they're here I'll regret saying that I'm actually ready for warmer days. Until the sun is officially here (it's still grey, overcast and just a bit rainy...) I'll be adding a few Almay products into my routine to get the summer vibes flowing.

nourish beauty box june 2019 (1): : : press sample : : :

I don't know how I've felt about blogging lately, perhaps a bit stagnant, but something that always works to perk me up (so to speak) is something new. A new product, or in the case today, a new (at least to me) subscription box. The team at Nourish Beauty Box reached out on Instagram, and I just had to see what they had to offer. I mean, who doesn't like a little box of surprise beauty goodies every now and then?

Lola's Secret Beauty Blog doesn’t ordinarily wax poetic about matte lipsticks, but Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Mega Matte in Oblivion is the most gorgeous, flattering and complex mauve-taupe.

The theme for June is “Weather” and Literary Lacquers will be making its debut to the Polish Pickup with her Shakespeare’s The Tempest inspired polish, Strange Bedfellows.
