I've heard of BH Cosmetics for a long time though never actually tried the line before. I know, strange. A friend and I decided to place an order and FINALLY give the line a try.
I, of course, ended up with 4 new palettes and some lipstick because that's how I role.
I purchased the Special Occasion Palette, the Glamorous Blush Palette, the Forever Smokey Palette, the Forever Nude Palette and Creme Luxe Lipsticks in Coral Escape, Berry Bite and Te Amo.
The Special Occasion Palette contains 39 colors in divided between blush (9 colors) and eyeshadows (30 colors). All are absolutely lovely.
The Glamorous Blush Palette is the reason I placed the order though. It contains 10 fabulous colors that can all be blended together to make your perfect shades. Love it.
The Forever Smokey and Forever Nude palettes were on "Buy 1 Get 1 Free", hence why I got both. Here's the Forever Smokey Palette which contains 2 blushes, 2 lip glosse,s 1 highlighter and 6 eyeshadows.
The Forever Nude contains the same amount as the Forever Smokey Palette, just in more muted shades.
Last but not least, check out the lipstick colors, They are beautiful and rich. I've been rocking the Coral Escape almost everyday since receiving them! From left to right the colors are Coral Escape, Berry Bite and Te Amo.
What are your favorite BH Cosmetics products??

Unbeknownst to me, yesterday was National Lipstick Day. I know, how could I NOT have known this, you ask? I agree and am still kicking myself. It's now been marked in my calendar for all future Lipstick Days to come.
Lipstick is my favorite beauty product, by far. I love it so much because it can totally change your entire appearance, with one little coat. It's the one beauty product you can wear, with nothing else on your face, that can make you look glamorous, put-together and chic. And, depending your mood, you can choose a color to match how you're feeling.
If you're feeling sexy, there is nothing better than wearing RED. My all-time favorite red is L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in British Red.
If you're feeling bold, there is nothing better than wearing a BERRY. My favorite berry lipstick is BH Cosmetics Creme Luxe Lipstick in Berry Bite.
Summer makes me feel happy and my go to color is ORANGE. My all-time favorite orange lipstick is Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in Poppy Love.
If you're feeling playful, you can't go wrong with a FUCHSIA. My favorite fuchsia lipstick is Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick in Fuchsia.
Try these colors out! You will fall in love with them as I have, I just know it. What is your favorite lip color? What should I be wearing these days?

I'm a sucker for a good deal. Whether it be shoes, purses or my favorite lipstick, I love knowing that I paid next to nothing for something I absolutely adore.
Here are some of my favorite beauty products which cost less than $5!
BH Cosmetics 6 Color Concealer and Corrector Palette - It's amazing because it's compact, easy to use and works really well. Plus the price is a HUGE bonus.
Forever21 Mango Face Mask - I love one-use masks! I tend to get bored easily and love to try a new one each time. This is a great one because it smells fabulous and actually makes your skin feel super smooth.
NYX Powder Blush - Sigh, I love NYX. All their products are amazing but this type of blush is the best. It goes on so well and lasts all day.
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - I am typically a loose powder gal but love this powder when I travel. One of these bad boys can last me a couple of months and the powder also absorbs any oil on your skin which is GREAT when traveling to a hot climate.
ELF Studio Moisturizing Lipstick - You can never go wrong with an ELF product but their studio line is definitely the best. Plus these lipsticks are about $3.
Noxzema Classic Cream - I recently went back to using this product and still love it. It makes my skin tingle and really cleans out all my pores.
Sinful Colors Professional Nail Polish - This brand has a great selection of colors and dries really well.
NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder - I change bronzers like I change my hair color. I have used so many inexpensive (and expensive) brands but always seem to come back to this one. Easy to use and the color blends really well.
These are a few of my top items. What are your favorite, inexpensive, must-haves?

I've been a naughty girl by giving my credit card a workout this past weekend.
Over the past few days, I've made a couple purchases and just HAD to share the great deals in case you're on the hunt for a few products yourself.
First, e.l.f. Cosmetics is having a MASSIVE blowout right now. A lot of their beauty products are on sale for $0.49, $1.19 and $1.49. In other words, it's a great time to stock up on a few items that you might have been wanting to try. Here's a link to the sale items http://www.eyeslipsface.com/makeup/sale
Second, I made a purchase from BH Cosmetics and was able to capitalize on a Buy One Get One Free offer. That was has expired BUT they've just posted a Free Shipping and Free Brush Set which is equally great. Here's the link http://www.bhcosmetics.com/big-sale
I ordered a couple Mark and Avon items as well and Avon is having a big blowout of all their makeup, skincare, fragrances and hair products. Seriously, have a look at all the great deals by clicking this link https://www.avon.com/category/outlet/makeup
Can't wait to share my big haul post with you all. Have you seen any sales worth noting? Anything I should pick up?

I am mad about pink right now! Since having Benjamin, my entire makeup routine has had to change as I have virtually no time to make myself "up". Instead, I've been trying to find ways to keep the routine quick, simple and look polished without having to touch up during the day. My go-to colors?? Pink! Not only do they look beautifully subtle but they look great even if you're tanned.
Some of my favorite products are:
Dior Glowing Color Powder Blush
Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Candy Pink
Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick Compact (amazing!)
Stila Custom Color Blush (color changing blush that creates your perfect color pink)
NARS Blush in Desire
Too Faced Full Bloom Ultra Flush Blush
Maybelline's The Blushed Nudes Palette
What are your go-to colors to wear during the day?
