Current Beauty Game Changers


Happy Hump Day! I’m sharing my current beauty game changers. These are five products that I have been using pretty consistently and they are amazing!

  1. The Herbiarie Collagen + Retinol Daily Face Serum
  2. Fenty Beauty Match Stick in shade mocha
  3. Tarte Chrome Paint in shade fire dancer
  4. Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
  5. Miss Spa Hydrogel Lip Treatment


My Thoughts:

My skin is more supple and soft thanks to the collagen + retinol serum which I do use daily. Also Skyn Island products are amazing for stressed skin PERIOD! The hydro cooling gels work wonders on tired eyes! The Tarte chrome paints are seriously pigmented and give any look life! The Miss spa hydrogel lip treatment leaves my lips feeling moisturized and smooth. Last but not least my brand new baby Fenty match stick one word… BOMB. Stay tuned for a whole post dedicated to my love for Fenty Beauty!

Items were purchased at Ulta, Sephora, and Marshalls.

Mini Mascaras

I think mini mascaras are the best thing that ever happened to the world! Ok a little dramatic but they are pretty awesome.


  • Try it first! For more expensive mascaras it is really nice to be able to purchase a mini size for less and try it out to see if you want to purchase the full size.
  • Travel– Duh.
  • For those of us who don’t go through a tube of mascara in a month the mini size is perfect so you aren’t tossing half a tube of mascara at the three month mark.
  • If you don’t like it you didn’t waste 20 bucks or more on a full size.
  • Cuteness!!!!


  • Really? After those pros how could you have cons?

Makeup chains like Sephora and Ulta are getting really awesome about selling “to go” mini products or offering deluxe samples as a part of a gift with purchase or rewards program.

On Trend: Beauty Oils

I went to Sephora yesterday and I was talking with my dad last night about different products and whatnot and we started talking about skin. He and I have the same type of skin, we are very oily and whenever I come across something that is amazing for me I always let him know (So we use a lot of the same products lol).

That led me to beauty oils, I said dad you should really use these they are great for your skin! He says yeah like I need any more oil on my skin.

BOOM myth number one! Beauty oils are amazing for that fact alone. In putting oil on your face you are actually tricking your skin into thinking it already created that oil so in turn you become less oily. Amazing right?

Anyone no matter your skin type can use beauty oils and reap the benefits! For those with dry skin you get the moisture you need and for those with oily skin you get less oil production.

Beauty oils come in all shapes and sizes meaning there are different kinds. There are the straight up oils that you can use any and everywhere (hair, skin, nails, etc.) then there are cleansing oils for face and body. Beauty oils are all-encompassing and treat/solve so many beauty problems.

A few beauty oils I would like to recommend include:

  • Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil both the original and the light formulas
  • Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil
  • Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil
  • Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil

So have no fear when it comes to beauty oils. All of these products have a bunch of amazing ingredients in them to make you your most beautiful self! Run don’t walk to check out beauty oils TODAY!

I Have to Have it: Tarte Cosmetics

The first I Have to Have it goes to Tarte Cosmetics!

Tarte describes their cosmetics as high performance naturals. They are a cruelty free and vegan cosmetic line, always formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, and gluten.

However the thing that I find the most awesome about Tarte is that it was founded by Maureen Kelly, a beauty obsessed girl who wanted better healthier products both in ingredients and packaging. Tarte strives to be eco-friendly and glamorous at the same time and I believe they have achieved their goal.

A few Tarte products I can personally attest to are:

  1. be MATTEnificent colored clay eye and cheek palette
  2. colored clay CC primer
  3. clean slate flawless 12 hr. brightening primer
  4. clean slate 360 creaseless 12 hr. smoothing eye primer
  5. Amazonian butter lipsticks
  6. park ave princess matte bronzer


First I would like to discuss the packaging. I am a sucker for pretty packaging. Tarte does a fabulous job with packaging my most recent favorite would be the be MATTEnificent palette. Packaging is the first thing you see and it draws you to a product or a brand therefore I deem packaging most important. Well done Tarte!

Second the formulation of the products are amazing. The primers prep the skin well and really assist in making the look last throughout the day. The eye shadows are not powdery and have great color payoff. My all time favorite is the colored clay CC primer I have it in medium and I use it as a foundation. It makes my skin look absolutely flawless which is the point of applying makeup. The coverage, the skin match, the color correction, and the application are all top-notch. The lipsticks are like the name suggests BUTTER! They are moisturizing, creamy, and just the right amount of color. The shade selection is amazing as well. This cosmetic line is great for all skin tones and types.

Lastly I would like to mention again the fact that Tarte is a healthy makeup line. These cosmetics are formulated with good ingredients and not tested on animals. It kind of makes you feel good to use a brands that is health conscious, eco-friendly, and still super glam!
