Dusty Rose/Bronze Makeup

Hey everyone and Happy Easter!

It’s been well over a week since I’ve written anything – literally no explanation for it – I just haven’t written!

My 31st birthday came and went yesterday. My boyfriend and I had a lovely time in Newport, RI. It’s the first time either of us has been there and it was definitely an experience. Unfortunately, it rained quite a bit the second day we were there, but our activity planned for that day was to tour the Newport Mansions. Have any of you ever done that before? It was an absolute blast. A couple of the food places we tried out were incredible. Missions (a hot dog and burger joint) made the *best* hot dog I’ve ever had. Awesome spot if you happen to be in the area.

Surprisingly, I didn’t touch makeup the entire time I was in Newport. I brought all my brushes and products I thought I’d use, but we were walking around and being all tourist-y the whole time. There was no point in getting all gussied up!

Today I decided I wanted to try a pink eye look. It turned out to be a dusty rose/bronze look that I think works well for the transition from winter to spring!  Continue reading

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette – Coming March 17th!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

There are few product releases that are a same-day buy for me. I can guarantee that this palette will be one of them.

I’ve been lusting after this palette since I first heard about it a few months back.

This launches on March 17th and you can buy it at Sephora for $49.00.

Summer Yum, Candied Peach, and Just Peachy are my favorite shades out of this palette by just viewing photos online.

These shades are warm and housed in a very familiar metal tin with magnetic closure – Very typical Too Faced fashion which I actually love. There’s a very nice mix of matte shades and shimmer shades.

Too Faced comes out with some of the cutest packaging I think I’ve ever seen and this one does not disappoint.

Guys, it smells like freaking peaches. If that’s not reason enough to pick up this beauty for summer, then I don’t know what is.

Next Thursday I’m going away with my boyfriend for a couple of days for my birthday. We chose Newport, Rhode Island at a cute historic inn. I am crossing my fingers that shipping is fast so I can bring this with me!

Will you guys be picking this up when it releases? Let me know in the comments!
