A few beauty bits...

First off, let me say a big CONGRATS to my hubby who graduated from Real Estate School recently. He received his graduation packet yesterday and I couldn't be more proud. Just one more national test and he is a certified Real Estate Agent which is super duper exciting.

I recently bought a few beauty bits and bobs and thought I'd show you what I picked up.



It's no surprise that I bought more of these lip stains, I absolutely love them. I picked up the colors (from left) Parisian Passion and London Posh. I haven't tried either yet but I'm sure either one or both will end up in my weekly faves at some point!


I've never tried the Revlon Colorstay 24 hr foundation before but I've heard great things about it. I picked up the one specific to oily skin so we'll see how it goes. I picked it up in the color Natural Beige which seemed to match my current skin tone. The Maybelline foundation is a favorite that I repurchased. You can find my full review of it here


I love the formula of the Revlon Parfumerie nail polishes. I don't love the smell of them but they don't really bother me either. I picked up the colors Apricot Nectar (which is reminiscent of Essie's Tart Deco), Orange Blossom and Bordeaux.

The last two items I bought were a Maybelline Color Elixr in Glistening Coral and the Burt's Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter. I already have a Color Elixr in another color and I absolutely love it. The Burt's Bees is the only thing I've tried so far from the entire purchase and to be honest, I really don't like it. It does moisturize my lips but the taste is really gross. I think I'll stick to my Burt's Bees pomegranate lip balm instead.

Let me know if you have tried any of these products and how you like them in the comments below!

    1. The color elixrs are sooo good! Burt's Bees is usually my favorite so I was pretty disappointed this one was not so great, but it still does what it's supposed to so I can't really complain! I hope your week has been amazing so far my beautiful friend! XO -Kim
