Beauty: Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee


Funny enough I am not a huge fan of creme blushes. I don’t know why honestly…since I love the look of dewy and plump skin. During one of my trips to Sephora I was gifted this Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee. I was not thrilled with it upon first glance/inspection and stored in away in my stash of samples. Over this past weekend I thought I would give it a try on top of my Chanel cc cream. Needless to say I am on my third day of wearing it and love it! I have been applying this gel product with my hands and that seems to work wonders. It blends nicely into the skin and lasts all day! The color looks a bit scary in the jar but not to worry it’s a beautiful flush tone pink. Josie Maran offers a pretty good selection of colors if pink is not your thing. I definitely wouldn’t be against picking up another color in the future.

Beauty: Bobbi Brown Blush in Desert Pink

I have always been a huge fan of Bobbi Brown…and not just her beauty products but her whole brand. She is a true lover beauty and making every woman feel and look her best.
I was totally excited about picking up this beautiful blush in Desert Pink a few weeks back. It is a perfect transition color from Winter to Spring and a gives the perfect splash of color to your cheeks. I have been enjoying this blush over my cc cream and a little mascara. I am thoroughly impressed with the blush as it is finely milled, has great color payoff, and provides a long-lasting color.  I also think it is fairly priced.
Have you ever tried Bobbi Brown’s Blush?

Beauty: Cheeky!

If I could paint the world pink I would…so why not “paint” my cheeks pink everyday?! I say yes! I heart blush. I think blush makes your face come alive and adds a nice pop of color to your skin. My all time favorite blush has to be Givenchy Le Prisme in 24 It Girl. No the picture above does not do it justice (apologize for the blended look of colors) but I could not leave it out of this post. However some of my other favorites are MAC Summer Rose, Nars Mata Hari, MAC Tippy, and Tarte exposed. As you can see I have a small obsession with Pink (all shades) but I also love neutral cheek colors.
What is your favorite blush?

Beauty: Whats In My Makeup Bag



In the spirit of showing you what was in my work bag and everyday bag I thought why not share what’s in my makeup bag. I keep a small makeup bag on my counter of all the products I’m currently using and loving. Then whenever I get bored with a product I go and “shop my stash”. The makeup bag I’ve been using for years is by Prada and is from their nylon collection. This makeup bag is super high quality and can even be thrown in the wash for a quick cleanup. Without further ado…here is what’s in my makeup bag…

Mata Hari Blush by Nars
