I’ve always struggled with skin texture and pores – I don’t know anyone that doesn’t. And what a pain it is!! Over the years, I’ve just tried to accept it as a part of my life ((and try to cover it up!)) That was until I discovered the Cane and Austin Miracle Pad! Literally, after FIVE days – I noticed a DRAMATIC difference in my skin’s texture!! These have made a permanent spot in both my morning and nighttime skincare routine!!

NEW Marc Jacobs Bronzer – First Impressions and Comparison Swatches!!

Summer collections are coming in hot!! I’ve had my eye on a handful of the products from the new Marc Jacobs ‘coconut’ line! I’ve already purchased and reviewed the Dew Drops Coconut Highlighter and received a sample of the Re(cover) Perfecting Coconut Setting Mist, which I’m not a huge fan of – the mister is awful. I’m looking forward to the new glosses to hit Sephora as well! BUT!! I was most excited about the new ((and only limited edition item from the collection – weird)) bronzer! The O!Mega Bronze Coconut Perfect Tan in ‘104 Tan-Tastic’ is SO eye catching in the slim white packaging and promised coconut scent! I couldn’t find ANY comparison swatches of the new bronzer versus the original bronzer in ‘Tantric 102’!! So I made sure to include swatches of the two bronzers side by side along with my first impressions!

Anastasia x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit – Review and SWATCHES! 

The newest edition to the Anastasia Beverly Hills highlighter family is the Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit! I wasn’t initially totally sold on the palette as I thought the shades wouldn’t work well with my light skin tone – but after seeing some ‘real life’ swatches on some of my favorite beauty Instagrammers, I knew I could make it work!!

“Get a smooth, even glow that lasts with the Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit. Each highlighter has an ultra-fine formula that won’t leave behind shimmer particles. Just layer these shades together or wear them separately on your face, eyes, and body. For even more glow, apply them with a damp makeup brush.”

Does this new glow kit hold up to my high expectations?! Let’s see!!

Marc Jacobs Dew Drops – Coconut Gel Highlighter WITH SWATCHES!

DEW YOU?!!

“Instant Highlight. Golden Glow. Coconut Delight.”

I’m a HUGE fan of the Marc Jacobs Beauty line. Most of his products become STAPLES in my collection and every day makeup routine! Besides loving the brand, I LOVE liquid highlighters – so my hopes for this new product are high!

The Marc Jacobs Dew Drops – Coconut Gel Highlighter in ’50 Dew You?’ dropped for a sneak peek release last week, the full release I believe should be March 3rd. This stuff is literally liquid gold, definitely one of the prettiest gold liquid highlighters I’ve seen!
