Beauty Products You Should Know About

Usually when I find a beauty product I like, I remain a loyal user for years on end. Lately I have been feeling more adventurous and expanding my beauty horizons with new beauty products that I am excited to share! Overnight creams, concealers and face polishes. There are so many to choose from so how do you know which one is best for you? I…

Skincare: Bioderma

Lex here and with the weather rapidly changing in Chicago, I thought it was the perfect time to share some new skin care products I have been able to try. Enter Bioderma. I was able to try a few of their products, which compliments your personal skin type. Whether your skin is dehydrated, oily, or sensitive, Bioderma really has a product for anyone. The brand…

Food For Your Skin: Scratch Goods

  I live right around the corner from a little beauty shop called Scratch Goods. I had always meant to stop in, but with the cold weather I am rarely out walking. I had no idea that most of the Scratch Goods space was dedicated to a mask bar. The mask bar is much different than a facial: the Scratch Goods gals actually take…

How do you TLSP? Translucent Loose Setting Powder by Laura Mercier

I never was a translucent loose setting powder kind of gal. I use my Chanel VitaLumiere Foundation, a little bronzer and Hourglass highlighter and I am good to go. I recently received Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Setting Powder (Thank you Influenster and Laura Mercier for the complimentary product!) and let me tell you, this setting powder is EVERYTHING. I highly recommend using the “baking” technique to set the…

Let’s Play with Eye Shadow Clay by Laura Mercier

I seem to go through phases when it comes to eye shadows depending on my mood. Lately, I go for a peachy sparkle all over my lid for a toned down day time look or a flared smokey eye and shimmery browns to transition from day to night. Recently, Laura Mercier’s Editorial Eye Palette Intense Clays showed up at my door to play with…

Winter Street Style feat. Kenzo

  I was feeling a little fierce when I saw this cute sweater by Kenzo. What I love most about it, is that it’s not something Kenzo usually creates with its repeated pattern and more vibrant colors. Don’t get me wrong, Kenzo pieces are definitely for those looking to make a statement. I thought I would make it a little more street style with…

You Know You Like It: Kylie Cosmetics

I can’t believe I am supporting the business of a 19 year old teenager BUT I have to. You guys, Kylie Lip Kits are actually great and I’ll tell you why. Matte lip sticks are notorious for drying out your lips but I really haven’t had that problem with these. Overall, the matte colors by Kylie don’t dry out my lips, they stay on FOREVER,…

4 Days Until Christmas: Finding The Perfect Christmas Outfit

Now I noticed after taking a second look at my closet, that I am partial to black, grey, and white and I need a little bit more of pa-zazz *insert jazz hands here* when it comes to my wardrobe color ensemble. Being home in California for the week, it is my new mission to get some bright colors to get me through this dreary winter as…

‘Tis the Season to Love Your Skincare Products

I have been a dedicated Chanel makeup fan since high school (I hear my friends giving me a good chuckle in my head). But when it came to budgeting, I figured I needed to explore new moisturizers that kept my skin from being dry, one that really paired well with my foundation, Chanel VitaLumiere Aqua, and one that was quality but within a reasonable price….

Shades of Grey

Sweater weather is here! (Possibly even two sweaters and fleece lined leggings if you are battling the -5 degree weather like I am.) Pair an oversized sweater or sweater dress with leather leggings, wear heeled booties if you are dressing for a fancy occasion or combat boots for a casual brunch date! I had fun going to see the musical Hamilton (the thespian at heart that I…
