September’s Boycharm has landed and it’s all about the wild flowers? But how wild is this box this time around. With last month’s box being a bit of a disappointment for most people, we’re hoping that September’s box will redeem last month’s abomination.
Boxycharm is a monthly beauty subscription box that features 5 to 6 full size products.
This month’s theme is Wild Flower!
Cost – $21 monthly with free shipping
The combined total of the beauty products in this month’s is $119. Not the most expensive box I’ve received but definitely not the lowest either.Read More »
Contrary to all the makeup tutorials on Social Media, for many of us, our busy schedule does not allow for us to get all glammed up with smokey eyes, the perfect pout and highlight beaming to the gods.
A more realistic get-ready for the average working woman comprises of very minimal makeup and chapstick.
Let’s be real.
We all want to look effortlessly beautiful with little to no effort in half the time. So how do we achieve that look?
The trick is a good moisturizer, brow gel, eyeliner and/or mascara like the one from Wander Beauty and a tinted lip balm.
Tinted lip balms are known to give you that fresh, natural look without the use of a lipstick. Here are a few favorites that are great alternatives to your plain old regular chapstick.
e.l.f. Tinted Lip Balm
We all know e.l.f. to be a super affordable drugstore brand that does carry amazing products like their tinted lip balms. These lip balms give your lips a natural, subtle color while keeping your lips hydrated at the same time. They come in fun flavors and colors like berry and peach.
These lip balms have a bit more staying power as far as the color, than that of e.l.f.’s but they’re both equally hydrating. The colors on these are also build-able and can be layered to create a more pigmented look.
These, like Burt’s Bees, come in a variety of colors that you can switch up to suit your look. These Pixi Lip Balms do provide amazing color without being too overwhelming and have decent moisture as well. They feel buttery soft and gentle on the lips and will be a great compliment to your ‘no-makeup’ makeup days.
If ColourPop is not releasing something new every time you blink then they’re not doing something right. ColourPop has definitely been doing an excellent job keeping up with the trends but the only thing is that I don’t know if my coins can keep up!

If you’ve been peeping Kim’s Instagram you’ll know that her Cherry Blossom Collection is set to launch on September 14th and it’s looking very colorful compared to what we usually expect from the Queen of Nudes!
Her collection was inspired by her love for Cherry Blossom’s which was also the theme for her son’s , Chicago’s, baby shower. The makeup mogul teased us with a shockingly very provocative photo on her Instagram with her in Cherry Blossoms leaving very little to the imagination.
A couple month’s back, the reality TV star also gave us a hint that there were gonna be some brighter hues for her next collection when a fan asked her about other colors than nudes on Twitter. Read more about that here.
This collection features hues of pinks, corals and berries that I’m living for. KKW Beauty is just giving us the works this Fall. Kim’s collection also includes a first ever blush set which I’m sure everyone is excited for.
So let’s get into what this Cherry Blossom Collection includes:
I have tried KKW Beauty’s entire nude creme lipsticks and still love them to this day. When I don’t feel like wearing a créme lipstick I find myself reaching for her sister, Kylie Jenner, Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipsticks from her 21 Collection. The formula is very lightweight and long lasting.
The Kardashian’s are definitely making a name for themselves in the beauty industry and whether you prefer KKW Beauty or Kylie Cosmetics or neither, we can certainly enjoy Cherry Blossom Season in the Fall.
It’s not uncommon for me to hear about face and eyelid primers but lip primers are definitely not something that is talked about as much as the others. As a matter of fact, I rarely ever hear it mentioned in makeup tutorials.
How important are lip primers? Are they even necessary or is it just another way for cosmetic companies to deplete you of your hard earn coins?
Now that Summer is officially over, it’s time for us to start thinking about winter skincare. I know for me personally, my skin gets dryer to the thousandth degree, including my lips and there is nothing cute about weather-beaten lips.
I really want to show my lips some extra love as we creep into the Fall and Winter seasons. When it comes to lip scrubs, exfoliation and hydration are on top of the list and even better if they contain healing properties. So I have found a list of scrubs that may be worth trying.
What is so different about this lip scrub is that it is best to use it before applying any liquid lipstick. As a frequent wearer of liquid lipsticks, one of the very first step is to ensure that all dead skin is removed and this is exactly what this scrub does.
This lip scrub has many great reviews and is raved about by many influencers.
