I will get back to blogging regularly, I promise! This semester has been nuts! I hardly have time to sleep but it’s almost over and I will make the time for it again (the sleep and the blogging).

If you remember, I signed up for Ipsy monthly glam bags back in August. When I had the time I was doing monthly reviews (which I will pick them up again) but I wanted to share with you a product haul I have accumulated over the past few months. This is part one of four!


AURORA Gel Effect Nail Polish in Inky Dinky

I love this deep purple color. I also love gel manicures but never go to the nail salon to get them done. This gel effect nail polish doesn’t need a UV lamp and comes off with regular nail polish. It dries in a short amount of time and is super durable.  Buy here.

theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick

This liquid lipstick has some serious long-lasting power! Even while drinking my coffee and snacking throughout the morning the color stayed on. I love this shade pinky nude because it looks good with my skin tone. It has a matte finish to it but doesn’t dry out your lips like most matte lipsticks. Buy here.

Dr. Brandt microdermabrasion skin exfoliant

This skin product gently exfoliates  by scrubbing away dead skin cells. It feels great on my skin! Dr. Brandt microdermabrasion is an at home substitute to a clinical treatment that dermatologists preform. The scrub brightens and smooths my complextion by diminishing the appearance of acne marks and discolorations. Buy here.

pur~lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF30

This is by far the best tinted cream I have ever used! Seriously, this stuff is amazing. It provides full coverage and sunscreen in a foundation and BB cream combo and glides on smooth to give you a glowing complexion. Great for all skin types. Featuring pur~lisse’s exclusive asian herb extracts complex, Chamomile & Artemisia soothes the skin and sugar maple improves skin’s appearance and retains moisture. Buy here.

Beauty Without Cruelty Fragrance Free Hand and Body Lotion

This lotion is fragrance free, vegan-vegetarian and great on your skin! Made with shea butter, jojoba and kukui nut oil and aloe vera it’s super gentle and moisturizing. Buy here.
