BA Star Natural Shadow Palette: Review, Swatches, & Face of the Day!

Hello, Friends! Long time no post. I've been studying for a huge test I'm taking next month, so I haven't been posting as regularly, and I apologize. Today, I have a review on a natural eyeshadow palette from BA Star cosmetics for you. The palette I tried is the "Natural Shadow Palette," and it features three shimmery neutral powder shadows and two glitter gels.

Manicure Monday: Butter London Knackered & Essie Stroke of Brilliance!

Today, I wanted to share this lovely blue/green/purple glitter duo-chrome from Butter London called Knackered! I love how this polish changes color at different angles and in different lighting! I paired it with some blue glitter on the accent nail using Essie's Stroke of Brilliance and e.l.f. Dream Maker for some extra glitz and glam.

Today's Nail of the Day is the nail art design I did for Valentine's Day. It features the pastel coral nail polish Gorgeous Gerbera from the new Flower Beauty cosmetics line by Drew Barrymore! I was inspired by a photo for this pink and black design, and love how it came out.

Sephora Haul: Benefit Upgrade to Gorgeous Set!

I purchased this set from Benefit at the end of the year and am just getting around to posting about it. What drew me to this set was the fact that it includes 2 full-sized products and a few other small freebies for the price of a little more than one of the full-sized items on its own! I love good deals especially this one since I've been wanting to try out the full-sized items included. 
The set comes with a full size boxed powder/blush in Sugarbomb, full size High Beam liquid highlighter, and minis of the POREfessional primer, They're Real mascara, and Laugh with Me Lee Lee fragrance.

Tonight's outfit is a little black number I wore to an engagement party. The simple black dress features a sophisticated one-shoulder ruffle detail, which I adore. I paired the dress with patterned tights, spike heels, smokey eyes and nude lips.

OOTD: Red & White Sparkle!

I celebrate Christmas on January 7th, and this is the outfit I wore to the church service the evening before. Although red and white are associated with the holidays and it's nearing the end of January, this color scheme could also work well for a Valentine's Day outfit!
