NYX MYSTIC PETALS PALETTE REVIEW

Image
There are two Mystic Petals palettes available - Midnight Orchid & Dark Mystic. I have Midnight Orchid, which is a gorgeous selection of warm toned rosy shades and cool toned violet shades. I've been looking for a palette with unique tones of pinks and purples for so long, so I'm very happy it finally exists!

I recently purchased this palette from the NYX store in Union Square, New York City for $12. I highly recommend checking out the NYX store if you ever have the chance - there's a huge selection of products (often many that aren't available in other stores yet!) at a lower price than many other retailers. It's one of my favorite stores to visit in the city!

This palette is made up of ten different shades - 3 matte and 7 metallic. The mattes have the perfect amount of pigmentation so that you don't apply too much at once and can easily build up the color. The metallic shades are so beautiful and have the perfect amount of sparkle and some even have a duo c…

One of the stand-out moments from the AMAs this year was Taylor Swift winning Artist of the Decade. Over the past ten years, no one has impacted the music industry and pop culture in the way that Taylor has. In her acceptance speech, she talked about how every artist's goal is "to create something that will last", and referenced how Carole King, who presented her with the award, has impacted her family's life for decades. So many people, including myself, have been influenced in the same way by Taylor and her music for the past 10+ years. I've been listening to her music since I was 9 years old (I'm 20 now) and even though my music taste has evolved over the years, she has c…

KKW BEAUTY HOLIDAY 2019 DUO // REVIEW

Image
I've been eager to try out KKW Beauty, Kim Kardashian's brand, for a while and I was so excited when it was announced that they will be sold in stores and online at Ulta! Ulta carries a wide range of her products from the permanent KKW line, in addition to a few Ulta exclusive holiday sets. I picked up the Crème Lipstick & Highlighter duo, which retails for $29 ($38 value).
The set includes a crème lipstick in the shade "Enchanting" and a powder highlighter in the shade "Tempting". Both shades are exclusive to this set. Both of these products (and many others in the KKW line) come in clear acrylic packaging, which is so simple, chic, and very true to Kim's personal style. 
Enchanting // Crème Lipstick 
"Enchanting" is a beautiful blue-toned mauve shade and is an exclusive to this set. It is a moisturizing crème formula, which feels very comfortable and moisturizing on the lips. Since it's a crème finish, it definitely isn't as long-w…

CELEBRITY HALLOWEEEN COSTUMES 2019 // BEST DRESSED

Image
Happy Halloween! In today's post I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite celebrity costumes from this year - enjoy! 
Ariana Grande

Ariana's costume this year is based off of one of my favorite episodes from The Twilight Zone called "Eye of the Beholder". The prosthetics are so incredibly well-done and so accurate to the original episode. Ariana always goes all out with her Halloween costumes, but this is definitely one of her best and most creative!

Kylie Jenner


Kylie Jenner is another who goes all out with her Halloween costumes every year! This year she had so many different costumes, but the one that stood out the most was her as Marilyn Monroe for the cover of V Magazine's digital Halloween issue. She perfectly encapsulated Marilyn's glamorous style! 
Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian dressed up as the iconic Legally Blonde character Elle Woods. Like the character from the movie, Kim is also a law student, which makes this so perfect. Kim even recreated Ell…
