Lime Crime Diamond Crushers

Glittery. Versatile. Amazing. These iredescent lip toppers instantly double your lip color collection as these little beauties can be worn alone or on top of your favorite lip product. It is a perfect addition when wanting to add a little drama to your usual look.

The Diamond Crushers formula is non-sticky and glides easily over the lips. The glitter stays where it’s supposed to and doesn’t get all over your face.

The Lime Crime website describes them as, a weightless water-based formula that goes on matte and dries to a smudge-proof finish. Can be worn alone or over liquid matte lipstick without making it run, and the lightweight water-based formula is filled with light-reflective iridescent shimmers that dance and glisten with you as you move. 

Ten beautiful, sparkling shades including:

  • Choke (baby pink/baby blue)
  • Lit (rose gold)
  • Cleopatra (blush/gold)
  • Acid Fairy (lavender/mint)
  • Black Unicorn (black rainbow)
  • Cheap Thrill (sunset/rose)
  • Dope (cotton candy pink/champagne)
  • Strip (bright pink)
  • Fluke (mauve/blue)
  • Trip (purple/turquoise)

Available for $18 on the Lime Crime website and some shades are available on ASOS as well.

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub

Voted one of Allure’s Readers’ Choice winners in 2016, the Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrubs are definitely worth trying out; especially if you are looking to get your skin summer ready. 

The shea sugar scrubs come in several different scent combinations, including: Coconut Lime, Marula & Jasmine, Moroccan Rose, Brazilian Nut, Tropical Mango, Pomegranate Acai, Hawaiian Kukui, Passion Fruit & Guava, Lychee & Plum, and Original Shea.

I have tried the three pictured above, and would absolutely repurchase them. It is a very gentle scrub that exfoliated very well and leaves your skin feeling very soft and moisturized. 

The application is simple and self-explanatory. You just scoop out the desired amount of product into your hand and apply in a circular motion to the area of the body you want to exfoliate. The sugar disintegrates as you scrub, and moisturizes your skin. Once you’ve scrubbed enough, rinse with water. I usually use this product while I am in the shower, after I have washed with soap.

So where can you pick up these scrubs to try out for yourself, you ask. Ulta has a large selection (actually I think they carry every single version), and they often have a two for one, or buy one get the second 1/2 off deal. But for the regular price of $7.99 (18 oz.) you are still getting a great product for an inexpensive price tag. I have also seen them for sale on Amazon and at some Bed, Bath and Beyond stores.

Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush

Back from the Too Faced archives comes the Papa Don’t Peach Blush. I have been wanting to try this for a while now, but finally the time has come and based on the last few weeks of using it, I am very happy that Too Faced decided to bring this new and improved version back into existence.

If you haven’t already heard the hype or you have yet to try this sweet peach out for yourself, let me give you the highlights. First, it smells AMAZING! Seriously, the peachy aroma goodness is definitely one of its greatest selling points. Second, the adorable packaging. It is cute and functional. The compact is a magnetized tin, and kind of reminds me of vintage makeup compacts. Third, and probably the most important is the sheer quality of the product. The blush itself is a beautiful warm and natural shade that has a good pigment, yet is buildable upon application to create either a very natural, radiant glow or a more dramatic, sun-kissed bronzed effect.

Other reviews comment on its versatility as a highlighter as well, but because my skin is so fair that is not an option I can speak of first-hand. Review after review also echo the positive qualities I mentioned above which clearly demonstrate the need to try this product out if you are in the market for a new blush.

Ratings:

For $30 at Sephora, Ulta, or the Too Faced website, you will get a fairly large pan of product (0.32 oz.), in which a little goes a long way. I’ve been using it daily for about two weeks now and it looks as though I just opened it. The imprinted image is still perfect! 

If you have any other questions about this product or if you’d like to share your experiences about the Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush, please comment below.

Since 1908 the people at Converse have been styling the feet of the masses. Uniquely and unlike any other footwear company that comes to mind, Converse has successfully broken down the barriers of cliques and classifications. They can be seen gracing the feet of musicians, athletes, fashionistas, and the like. Young and old, and everywhere in between own (or have owned) a pair over their lifetime.

Whether low-tops or high-tops, worn in or brand-spankin’ new, Converse are unmistakably trendsetting, yet quintessential at the same time.

Melt Radioactive Stack


The new MeltRadioactive stack launched on January 25th. I had been waiting patiently for this stack of bright pigmented colors to be released, and finally it was here! These colors are very different from the previous stacks released by Melt (which are also amazing). They are bright, build-able, and long-lasting.

I realize these neon-esque colors may not be for everyone, but even if you were only thinking of using them as accent colors, they would totally be worth the money.

At $48, the shadows come in a magnetized stack of four large pans. It may seem a bit pricey, but really it’s not. You are buying four, very pigmented eyeshadows where a little goes a long way.

For those of you who don’t see yourself sporting neon eyelids, I would emphatically recommend one of the other stacks from Melt. I own all three, and wear them most days. The other two stacks are Dark Matter, which includes four matte, warm neutral colors; and Love Sick, which includes matte and shimmer shadows in beautiful warm and cool shades.

Kat Von D – Tattoo Liner

  
Just recently named the #1 eyeliner at Sephora, and for good reason! No joke, this is the holy grail of eyeliners, hands down! I’ve been a repeat user of Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner since I first tried it a few years ago. Nothing I have used before or since has even come close to the quality and precision of what this liner can do. It is the blackest of blacks, long-wearing, smudge proof, and the list of compliments go on and on. If you have yet to try this eyeliner, do yourself a favor. What are you waiting for, the verdict is in!

NYX Baked Blushes!

 Amazing!! I recently picked up a few shades of the NYX Baked Blushes. I’ve been playing and experimenting with them over the last week. They remind me a lot of the MAC Mineralize Blushes but for a less expensive price tag; although the MAC does come in a larger compact. Both are fantastic; however if you are looking to try several different shades, like I did, go with the NYX. Both have a lightweight, sheer coverage and have a very nice shimmer to them. The NYX Baked Blushes are also made to be used with either a wet or dry application, which give you dramatically different color. The dry application goes on as a light pigment and the wet application is more dramatic and pigmented. So you are really get getting two blushes in one….Bargain!!
