Recent Beauty Favorites


I really love the idea of rocking orange lips this Spring!  Maybe its my bright new highlights, or perhaps I’ve gotten too comfortable with reds, pinks, and burgundies… but I really think a vivid orange lip will look gorgeous with a bit of a bronzy glow and warm Spring weather.  Some to try from Maybelline and MAC.

This highlighter is a new favorite… Apply the stick to your brow bone / areas you want to sparkle, and blend with the soft sponge on the other side.  Benefit has such a knack for clever but useful packaging… this one is a new favorite serious obsession.

I haven’t even tried it yet but I’m already so excited about Marni’s new fragrance.  You just know it’s going to smell amazing.  How cute is the purse spray + huggy doll set!?

Birchbox has done it again… this box has all of my favorites… I’m strongly considering buying a few as gifts – would be the perfect present for girlfriends or to give as a hostess gift!

PS – I’m guest posting on one of my favorite blogs today… head on over to Coco + Kelley to see my Vday wish list!

    The new marni fragrance is great powdery and a bit peppery! Also lobe the orange lip I wear this shade year round:)

    I love orange-y lips, too! I have Revlon’s “Siren”, just waiting for spring to come around so I can wear it!

      Agreed! Orange/Tangerine lips are great for spring! Complete pop of color.

    I may have to splurge on this as well – especially if you endorse it! I do love that dry shampoo…

  5. Tiffany says 2.12.13

    I like the idea of orange lips but I’m a little bit afraid to try it out! Might have to make the leap.

  6. Alyssa says 2.12.13

    I’m super into tangerine lips lately too–I’ve stocked up on a few colors that I’m just dying to wear once spring hits!

  7. Kory says 2.12.13

    I completely agree with you about orange lips! I’m trying to get over my fear of bright lipstick, and tangerine lipstick might be just the thing to do it for me.

  8. Sarah says 2.12.13

    I will definitely have to check out that highlighter! My recent cosmetics obsession has been the whole Tarte cosmetics line

  9. Carly says 2.12.13

    I really need to go hit up the Benefit Counter for some of their new products and the Watts Up will be on my list!

    OOh I want to try the Watts Up!! Benefit always makes cool highlighters like High Beam..but this looks even easier to use! OK one of my New Year’s resolutions was to be bolder and I still have been to scared to wear color on my lips. I’ve got to try a pink or maybe an orange!! xo

  14. Jessie Springer says 2.12.13

    I can’t wait to try an orange lip this spring either! I’ve gotten comfortable with coral so it’s about time to experiment with orange! 🙂

    Great post, thanks for sharing!

    No you should! My sister got orange lipstick from MAC last time she was out here visiting and it looks amazefest on her! I haven’t donned the orange yet, but my new lipstick obsessions is starting to build up. I used to never ever wear it and now I can’t leave the house without it!

  16. Erica says 2.12.13

    Love some of those! Sadly the BirchBox goodies are sold out! BTW- Congratulations on the great Lucky Mag feature- I’ve added that Josie Maran oil to my must-get list!

  17. Ashley says 2.12.13

    I haven’t tried an orange lip but I want to! Hopefully it suits me

    Part of me just wants to get the perfume because the packaging is just so darn cute!

    And so far, I’ve only tried orangey-reds, but I do love the way orange looks on everyone else. 🙂
