REVIEW & SWATCHES: Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick

Oh goodness gracious, Urban Decay has a brand new lipstick line out for the Summer and it's going to go strong through the Fall as well! Introducing Matte Revolution which is a collection of 9 shades (plus 2 more exclusive to and UD boutiques) full of bold, creamy opacity.

More than calling these straight-up mattes, I see the Matte Revolutions as being a sister to the original Revolution lipstick since most of them don't have that uncomfortable dry feeling typically associated with matte products but it certainly has all of the extreme pigment you'd expect.

NORDSTROM Anniversary Sale Picks (Early Access)

As you may remember from last year, I am a huge fan of Nordstrom's annual Anniversary sale. In my heart it is the biggest and best sale of the year and I intentionally hold off on beauty and clothing purchases in advance knowing I will have a bit more to splurge when the sale hits. You may be wondering why the internets go up in flames about it and the answer is this: there are 30-50% discounts on brand new Fall items in advance of the season which will subsequently go up to full price once the sale period is complete.

I already made my Early Access order (for cardholders. I have the debit card which is handy since you don't have to worry about payments.) but the sale also opens to the public on July 17th. As a heads up, items do tend to sell out quickly so it's better to wishlist or purchase sooner than later. Even without early access you can still browse and wishlist items, which makes for easier shopping later.

I've made plans to film a massive haul video as soon as I get my items in but I wanted to give some recommendations for those of you who have early access or want guidance through the sale. Trust, I have picked through the site and found a few items I absolutely adore.


1. Jo Malone 'Nectarine Blossom & Honey' Collection

You guys know I'm a huuuuuge sucker for Jo Malone perfumes and Nectarine Blossom & Honey is my #1 fav signature scent. It's the perfect mix of fresh + fruity + sweet notes and I am so excited to layer body wash, body cream, and cologne from this 3-piece set so the scent lingers longer.

Travel Diary | THE BAHAMAS

Hey guys! I recently went on a trip to the Bahamas for the first time ever and had an absolutely incredible experience enjoying the sun, swimming with seriously serious sharks, and checking out the launch of Benefit's new colorful Push-Up Liners and They're Real mascaras. I was literally still reeling from the experience as I was going through photos of our trip, so I knew I had to share some of them here on the blog. :)

I vlogged my way through the tropical extended weekend:

And of course found my way to the insane, clear-as-my-bath water. Hey ocean! How you do dat?
