I'm sure many of you own this product already, and for the longest time this item was on my wish list. When Sephora had their 20% off Friends and Family sale, I finally went ahead and picked it up.
Dior's Amber Diamond is such an amazing highlighting powder. It leaves the most beautiful, soft, and glowing sheen on the cheekbones or wherever it is applied. It's no wonder that so many people rave about this product, because it is every bit as wonderful, as people say it is.

The packaging is absolutely gorgeous, as Dior packaging always is.

Comes in a really cute velvet pouch with the Christian Dior initials on it. The overall packaging is a plus, especially the very convienent mirror inside. However, the product inside is the reason for purchasing.

Ultra Shimmering All Over Face Powder Description:
As sheer and shimmering as silk, the Diorskin Shimmer Star brightens the complexion with thousands of sparkles to a sea of finely milled shimmer. What is the secret of these unique reflections? Just the right amount of pearlescent particles and pigments designed to give the skin a beautiful sheen. The result: in just one step, your face radiates with a delicate halo of light.
This is by far the prettiest highlighting powder that I have ever used or have owned before. It truely does give such a glow to the skin, and for the quality, it's defiantly worth the splurge. It retails for $44, which is alot of money, however, if your looking to splurge on one beauty item, I would defiantly recommend this one. I hope you enjoyed reading, if you own any other Dior products that you are loving, please share them in the comment section below. Thankyou.

I own many amazing brushes, but I'm always on the look out for more. I have never tried any of Sonia Kashuk's makeup brushes before, but have always heard great reviews about them. I've been looking for a really great fluffy brush for applying powders and highlighters with, and I think i've found a wonderful one. It's called a "Small multipurpose powder brush" and it is amazing for applying powder under the eye. It's very universal, can be used for under the eye, on the lid for blending, or for precise areas such as highlighting the cheekbones. It really is so easy to use just one brush for different areas of the face, it really does save time. I think if your looking for a multipurpose brush, defiantly check this one out.
It's super soft, distributes the powder precisely in the areas you need it to, and it's extremely great for blending.
Overall, this is an outstanding makeup brush. It retails for $10, and I purchased mine at my local SuperTarget. I hope you enjoyed reading this quick & short brush review. Have you found any multipurpose brush, must-haves? Please share them in the comment section below. Thankyou.

As you all may already know, I love and adore lipsticks. I have probably may too many and really don't need any more. However when I come across a shade, texture, and/or quality of a lipstick that I just can't pass up, I will purchase it. I was watching one of my favorite beauty guru's on YouTube (Lisalisad1) and she was wearing such a beautiful color on her lips. She mentioned that the lipstick she was wearing was Tom Ford's new Private Blend Lipstick in the color "Blush Nude". I have heard many great things about Tom Ford's lipsticks, but have never tried or purchased any until now.

Unfortunately mine had a little accident, so please excuse the tiny dash on the left side. I did get a discount, so this minor damage didn't really bother me. Honestly, I can't believe I never tried any of these lipsticks sooner. Not only is the packaging gorgeous and ultra chic, but the quality and consistency are amazingly perfect. It's creamy, very moisturizing, and is extremely long wearing.

Tom Ford's "Blush Nude" is a light pinky nude shade with a hint of mauve. The color is just so pretty that it makes most of my other nude lipsticks look plain in comparison. Tom Ford Lipstick contains rare and exotic ingredients including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomile flower oil create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibily smooth application. Specially treated color pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.

In my honest opinion, overall this lipstick gets a ten. It delivers incredible color, has amazing texture, and lasts long on the lips. I can defiantly say that this lipstick is one worth having. Retails for $48, which is defiantly alot for just a small lipstick that only has 3g. of product, but if your looking to splurge on one beauty item and you love nude lipsticks, then defiantly check this one out. I really hope you enjoyed this post, I would love to know if you've tried any of Tom Ford's lipsticks, and if you have please share them in the comment section below. Thankyou:)

I know I recently just did a post on Revlon's lip butters, but I've came across a product that I just had to share with you guys. I know many of you probably have heard about this product already, or even own it by now. The product is FRESH'S Sugar Lip Treatment and it is the only one I have tried so far. There are many other tinted colors, but I mainly purchased the plain original one, for moisturizing purposes only.

I've used this lip treatment for 2 weeks and can already see a difference in my lips. They always feel soft and hydrated, and my lipstick goes on much more smoother and looks alot better on my lips. I love that I don't have to apply it so often as I would other lip balms and/or lip conditioners.

The lip treatment doesn't leave any color on the lips, which is perfect for when I put my lipstick on. The texture is very smooth, not sticky, and feels very silky on the lips.

I am defiantly hooked on this product and will defiantly repurchase. I absolutely love the packageing, very sleek. My favorite part is the twist screw closure.

I love that you can throw it in your purse and not worry about it opening and getting messed up. Overall this is a wonderful product. It retails at $22.50 and I purchased mine at Sephora during their 20% off Friends & Family Sale, so I did get it for a bit cheaper. I still highly recommend trying this lip treatment, right now Sephora has many holiday sets with these Fresh lip treatments, that are very great deals. If you haven't checked them out, defiantly do.
Thanks so much for reading, if you have tried this product or any of the other tinted ones, please let me know in the comment section below:)

MAC released their new holiday collection, which had three parts. The first part was their Glitter & Ice Collection, which is the only part I purchased any products from. I know i'm pretty late in posting this, but I still wanted to share with you the few products i purchased.
First and foremost, I have to say that the overall packaging for this collection is gorgeous, and in my opinion, defiantly the best I've seen in many past collections that MAC has released, with special packaging.
The white packaging is so sleek and beautiful, I absolutely love it! The three products I picked up from this collection were a lipstick, beauty powder, and a paint pot.

MAC's "Double Spin" lipstick is a light lavendar beige shade. It's absolutely gorgeous on the lips, very light and looks really pretty layered over other lipsticks. It is a cremesheen which I love, very creamy and smooth when applied. Defiantly make sure your lips are well hydrated, to achieve the perfect pout, since it's so creamy it can enhance lines on the lips. I think out of all the other lipsticks from this collection, this one is the most universal, I think it would look beautiful on any skin tone.


MAC's "SnowGlobe" Beauty Powder is a very light, glowy white powder. It can be used all over the face to give it a lovely glow, or it can be used as a highlight powder for on top of the cheek bones. I personally love using this as a highlighting powder, it gives my cheekbones a very light glowy sheen, that looks very natural and unintentional, which i love. I think if you like that subtle glow either all over the face or as a highlight, than this beauty powder is for you.


MAC's "Morning Frost" Paint Pot is a taupy, silvery white color. The only other paint pot I own from MAC, is Painterly, which I use every single day. I love the color payoff of Morning Frost, it does make every shadow I put over it pop! I will defiantly be using this paint pot alot, especially for this season, and maybe even post a makeup look using it.

I hope you enjoyed this very small MAC collection post, I know I am very late in posting this! I would love to know what you guys picked up from this collection, please share them in the comment section below, and thanks for reading:)

My favorite shades to wear this winter have been dark, muddy taupes and greys. One of my all time favorite colors to wear for winter is Essie's "Merino Cool".

Merino Cool is a dark muddy taupe color. This shade looks so pretty on the nails and is such a perfect color for winter. Looks great with all different outfits, "boots and sweaters".

If you haven't already, defiantly check this polish out. Thanks so much for reading, what's one of your faves for Fall & Winter? Please share them in the comment section below:)

Many of you may already know of All Cosmetic Wholesale's website, but until just recently, I wasn't aware of such a website, or that even one existed. I heard of this website through the beauty community and YouTube, for being a discounted cosmetic retailer and for being very reputable. I decided to check it out and was very pleased with the website and it's products. I went ahead and made my 1st All Cosmetic Wholesale purchase and wanted to share with you what I picked up. Now I did purchase these items about 2 months ago, but nontheless I still wanted to mention them to you.
I picked up four products that I have been wanting to try from NARS, Laura Mercier, Too Faced, and Revlon.


NARS "Nico" Blush is a very light cream shade with very fine shimmer. This blush is so light, that it wouldn't show up, even for a swatch. However, I do enjoy using it layered on top of other blushes to give them a more dimensional coloring. NARS blushes retail for $28, but through this website, I paid $22.


Laura Mercier's "Starlight" is a Mineral Illuminating Powder, that is designed to provide sheer coverage and a radiant soft-focus effect that perfects any look by imparting a natural, healthy glow. This powder gives a pretty golden nude radiance to the face when applied all over or just as a highlight. I have been using this powder quite often and really do enjoy it. This mineral powder retails for $32, but on this website, I paid $16.

I have been wanting to try this Too Faced Primed & Poreless face primer for awhile and so I picked up this trial size to try. I have been using it almost every day and have really enjoyed the way my foundation looks layered on top of it. It does give a smooth canvas to work with and really does make my makeup last all day.


Ever since Revlon released this limited edition lipstick shade in "Fashion's Night Pout" I have been looking everywhere to pick one up. When I saw that All Cosmetics Wholesale had it on their website, I got really excited. I am a fan of nude lipsticks, and this color is right up my alley. Now above I have it swatched on my lips just for reference of how the color would look, however I would not wear this color alone. I would pair this lipstick with a lipliner and a lipgloss.

I know many of you makeup lovers would love this website, and if you haven't checked it out yet, you really should. Here's the link: CLICK HERE
I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments below, if you have purchased from this website and what your thoughts are.

Revlon released a new line of lip products that have caused quite a buzz lately in the beauty community. They are called "Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters" and they come in a array of shades and variety. Theres no doubt that this line has a shade for everyone. I love Revlon's lip products, so I knew i just had to try these, so I went to my local CVS and picked two up.
What caught my eye first, was the packaging. They are similar to the line of Revlon's Colorburst lipsticks, that have the quilted design. I love the clear sheer caps and how  they correspond to the shade inside.
I also love the see-through tops, for easy accessing the shade you want.
The tube itself is very sleek and well made. The tube twists up and down smoothly and even clicks in place, when twisted all the way back down. With the overall packaging and design of this product, I am, very impressed.
The two lip butters I choose, were "Sugar Frosting" and "Gumdrop".
Sugar Frosting is a very sheer muted pink shade. It does have some fine glitter to it, but when applied to the lips appears more as a shimmery sheen.
Even though this lip butter has fine glitter, it does apply very smoothly to the lips. The color is sheer, but it still leaves just the right amount of soft tint.
Gumdrop is a light lavendar shade and out of the two, it's defiantly my favorite. I absolutely love the color, it leaves the perfect lavendar tint to my lips.
This lip butter appears more glossy on the lips than the other, which I really do enjoy. And it does apply very smoothly, just as the other one did.
I am completely blown away with how moisturizing and hydrating both of these lip products are. I love my Korres lip butters, but in all honesty, these Revlon ones are equally as good, if not better. And for me these are way more convenient and sanitary for traveling purposes, since they are in a tube. I have heard that these will become a permanent line for Revlon and will be available almost anywhere, but for now I've only seen them at Walgreens and CVS stores near me.

I hope you find this post interesting and hope if you haven't tried these yet, that you will. They are awesome! If you have tried these, let me know below which are your favorite shades:)
