Beauty Recs with Sally Beauty


In my last Sally Beauty post, I offered my custom beauty consultation services to one winner–and that winner was the lovely Elizabeth. My spending limit was $45 so I opted to multitask items: several eyeshadows (suited to her eye color) in one, as well as a gorgeous blush/bronzer combo. I’m loving the “nude everything” trend these days so of course a dusty rose nail color was in order, as was a nude lip pencil. Plus, through the rest of August, you get a free snazzy tote if you spend $45 at any Sally Beauty store, while supplies last. And trust me, they’re cute.

  1. Femme Couture Velvet Bronzer and Blush Duo
  2. Femme Couture Color Made Easy Shadow Effects Trio
  3. Real Colors Hydra Lips Waterproof Gel Lip Liner
  4. OPI Nail Lacquer in Nomad’s Dream
  5. Ardell Natural Multipack Babies

I hope you like my picks for you, Elizabeth! I thoroughly enjoyed shopping for you! I hope you enjoy your gift card and please let me know how your shopping goes!


My First Time: Lash Extensions

All my life I’ve struggled with beauty’s stereotype of long, full, luxuriously jet-black eyelashes. Mine come in the short, stubby, so-blonde-you-can’t-see-them variety. I’m pretty sure the first bit of makeup I ever wore was mascara. These days, I can’t go out of the house unless I’m wearing mascara. I feel like I look like aRead Post →

Roses de Chloé

As an owner of the original Chloe Eau de Parfum (and lover of it – check out my previous fragrance collection videos Part 1 and Part 2), and an absolute lover of anything rose-scented, I was ecstatic to get my hands on this new offering from the house of Chloé. Some of you may recallRead Post →

November Glossybox

Clinique Calyx Reboot

Prescriptives revolutionized the fragrance scene in a world of florals and orientals with a fresh, verdant scent called “Calyx”. Since the brand Prescriptives went exclusively online, sister brand Clinique took the famous secent under its wing and redebuted it–exact same formula, notes, and all–this month. It retails for about $52-69, making it an inexpensive scentRead Post →

Bite Collector’s Edition Swatches

One of their holiday offerings is this limited edition Bite Collectors Edition set, valued at over $200, for $98 exclusively at Sephora. Only 1000 of theseRead Post →


Skin That’s Clear for the Holidays

As the holiday season approaches, the number of photos taken of us increases proportionately. This can be at once inspiring, and anxiety-provoking. On the one hand, we’re making and preserving memories. On the other, we’re constantly focused on the S.O.S: State of Our Skin. In this post, I’ve outlined some tips I recommend to keep your skin in theRead Post →
