I must admit, I had totally preconceived notions about Mary Kay. In my mind, they were a bit outdated. Um, well, I am here to admit how wrong I am. I had a little Mary Kay party at my house a few nights ago with a few close friends and I really liked everything I got to try! We got to hang out, play around with some makeup, and it ended up being a lot of fun! I absolutely fell in love with their mascara. I have been on the lookout for a new mascara for a while. None of the mascaras I have received in my Ipsy bags over the last few months have wowed me. Everytime I use up whatever I am currently using I buy something new in hopes that this will be “the one”. Well I finally found it! …

I hadn’t dyed my own hair in quite while so I was a bit nervous – but this was SUPER easy. Madison Reed takes the guess work out of everything. I can’t tell you how many times I have gotten home only to realize I’ve forgotten gloves or hair caps on my trip out to the store to grab everything I need to dye my hair. Everything I needed showed up in a cute little box on my doorstep. This is the kind of thing I need in my life with a full-time job and permanent Mom brain. Their products are also free of ammonia, resorcinol, parabens, phthalates, gluten & PPD. I hate dealing with the harsh chemical smells that DIY hair color usually brings so this was quite literally, a breath of fresh air!

I like a little bit of variety when it comes to my lip color – glossy, matte, bright, subtle! I want it all! These are my go to lip products for Spring and Summer. Make sure to check out the swatches at the bottom of this post to really get a feel for what all of the colors look like….
This looks fabulous. I have a Too Faced pallet that was a special Christmas edition from several years ago. I have used it every single day since then. I’ve used up many of my favorite colors and I’m kind of a creature of habit so I’d love to stick with what I know! There are three small color pallets contained in this cute little “hotel” – Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread, and Eggnog Latte! And they are scented. In the image above I’ve included a sample of the Gingerbread pallet. Want, want, want! It also comes with their famous “Better Than Sex” mascara!
I have seen great things about this mask. I have almost purchased it several times and then decided that I didn’t need it. Oh yes, I need it. Apparently you put a thin layer of the mask all over your face and it gradually transforms into fizzy bubbles. It sounds so refreshing!
I love getting gel manicures but the upkeep is a little pricey for me. I’ve heard rave reviews about Essie’s Gel Couture nail polish. No light needed or anything! I definitely hope to pick this up soon in the “take me to thread” color (shown in top image) and the “gala-vanting” color (shown in the widget). They are both perfect for the season!
Need I say more? I want to smell like a Christmas Cookie. I am almost out of my Pure Romance stock of shower gel from my days as a consultant. Time to smell like delicious food!
I am always looking for ways to perfect my brow game. Y’all – my eyebrows have come a long way. I look back at older photos and some of my attempts to shape/fill them in were… a little dramatic. I currently only use a small eyebrow brush and a Urban Decay eyeshadow in a natural brown shade. I think something like this would really help to set them and keep them in place. Eyebrows really make or break your look, ya know?!
What is on your beauty product wish list?! I would love to know! I sometimes realize I’ve been living under a rock when it comes to the new beauty trends and I am trying to keep up!
