OOTD: Casual With Some Edge! (Featuring JustFab!)

Feeling Grey!


After taking Omega (my super lovable dog!) to his first training class my husband and I decided to go to a Chinese restaurant we really love! Date night was fun, super casual so these sneakers were perfect! I wanted to add a little something more to the outfit so I opted for the quilted purse and loved it! It's spacious enough to carry everything I need without being too big to get in my way. Plus the sneakers have some quilting too! #attentiontodetail ;-)

What I wore:
T Shirt- Kohl's
Leggings- Kohl's (something similar)
Sweatshirt Jacket- H&M
Sneakers-  JustFab
Bag- JustFab

I love JustFab and can't begin to tell you how many awesome sales I've taken advantage of! The prices are great and the quality even better! 
If you're looking to join JustFab here's my referral link: and if you have any questions about the site let me know!

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more OOTD's! :-)

Review: NEW Tarte Blush in Sensual & Exposed Highlighter!

NEW from Tarte!

Tarte Blush in Sensual & Exposed Highlighter!
I'm finally getting a chance to review these two products today! (Wohoo!) I've had them since June guys... June. Let's get into the basics and then I'll tell you my thoughts right after.

The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Sensual is part of their Naughty Nudes collection which is a total of four matte nude shades (sooooo pretty btw!). It retails for $28 and it's described as a golden nude which I totally agree with. Just like their other Amazonian Clay blushes this one lasts all day long! It's very blendable and buildable which I completely appreciate and why I love the Tarte blushes so much!

The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Highlighter in Exposed retails for $28 as well and it's their first highlighter in single form. It's a beautiful golden champagne glow with a creamy texture but... it didn't last on my skin! :-( After about hour 3 I didn't see it at all on my skin plus the highlighter itself doesn't go on as intense as a Becca highlight, it's more on the natural side.

Here are the swatches! The blush has quickly become a go to for days when I don't know which one to wear. It never competes with the rest of my makeup look and it's the perfect color for everyday. The highlighter swatch is lovely! I really love the color, just wished it was formulated a bit better.

Bottom line: I'd say yes to the blush and pass on the highlight if you're looking for something super blinding. If you're highlight preference is on the more natural side than this one would be perfect for you. If you own any of these items leave me your thoughts on them below! :-)

Review: MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipsticks!


MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipsticks
I must say... Make Up For Ever came through when they released their Artist Rouge Lipstick line! If you haven't checked Sephora you're missing out on some pretty cool colors plus some beautiful neutrals. I had added a few of the shades to my loves list when I received an email from Influenster confirming that they were going to send me three shades for review! Excited is an understatement! Even though I received the Make Up For Ever VoxBox for free for review all opinions are my own.

Lets talk packaging first! These retail for $22 which reflects in the packaging because it has a nice weight to it and awesome attention to detail! I was sent three shades, a nice variety I must add ;-) and they're all in the Satin finish. The formula is incredible when it comes to the color payoff. You truly need one swipe to get the color payoff you see below! I personally feel like it's a thicker formulated lipstick, by that I mean that I can feel it on my lips which I don't prefer but it helps with the longevity. It also has a somewhat strong chemical scent so if you're sensitive to smells it may get to you. Swatches shall we?

*C502- a taupe violet, very cool color but does make my teeth look yellow (yikes!)
*C404- passion red, super gorgeous and bright, love it!
*C211- rose wood, such a pretty rose-mauve, my favorite out of the bunch!

Bottom line: I give the the line two thumbs up because the color selection is crazy + cool! I would prefer for them to be unscented but I'm super happy with the shades I was sent for review. Definitely check them out if you want a lipstick that's pigmented and long wearing! :-)
