Sephora Collection: Long-Lasting Eye Liner

Behold my latest obsession…

I was looking for a new eye liner for the holiday season and decided to try Sephora Collection: Long-Lasting Eye Liner in Glitter Taupe. I’m not one who generally likes liquid liners, so I wasn’t too hopeful, but I fell in love with this product! Not only does it go on extremely easy, but it’s fast-drying and DOES NOT smudge. The color is very versatile, so I’ve been continuing to wear it after the holidays. I think it works for both work and a night out (maybe go a little lighter at the office). It lasts for hours and still looks clean and precise at the end of the day. AND it’s only $10. What more could a girl ask for? Definitely needing to purchase some more colors…

Bb. Texture Hair (un) dressing Crème

I have recently come upon a new obsession. The life-changing product is Bb. Texture Hair (un) dressing Crème from Bumble and bumble.

I had seen reviews for this new gel-creme online and liked the idea of it, but was hesitant because I thought it would give my hair a greasy look and feel. After receiving a Sephora gift-card for my birthday I made a trip to beauty supply heaven and decided to give Bb. Texture a try. Now I don’t think I can live without it.

The crème leaves your hair anything but greasy, actually giving you a matte, shine-free look. It gives you the texture of dirty hair while looking clean at the same time.

After applying it, I usually blow-dry my hair and love the tousled, undone look the product gives my strands.  It’s a great way to add more volume. I don’t generally use it when I wear my hair down, but instead when I want to style it back and off my face.

It gives the best hold for any kind of braid (especially if you have layered pieces that tend to fall out) and it adds the perfect amount of lift at my roots when I want to do a messy bun. It also makes your hair look incredibly pretty when you want to throw it back in a chignon.

The only downfall is it’s a little pricey, but it lasts a long time. I would definitely recommend trying it – I promise you won’t regret it!

Nail Polish Junkie

I’m a little stressed out at the moment and definitely procrastinating, so I’m going to write about something light…

Every season I stock up on new nail polish colors, and with summer around the corner I decided to go splurge this week. Out of all my purchases my latest obsessions are Essie’s Borrowed & Blue and First Dance.

Apparently I’m in a very nautical mood.

Okay, back to prepping for tomorrow morning’s interview…
