It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Luxe Palette - Tutorial Roundup!

I recently bought the Naturally Pretty palette from It Cosmetics. It is a gorgeous collection of 14 matte eyeshadows, plus one shimmery shadow. I've been absolutely loving it! While I was waiting for it to arrive in the mail, I may or may not have spent way too much time on YouTube, finding some great tutorials using this palette.

These colors are so nice, you could use any combo and have a beautiful look. But I definitely found some combinations that I would not have thought of. Enjoy!

My Top 5 Picks for Spring Nails!

Oh spring. Would you just show up already? I'm pretending it's already warm with my favorite spring nail polishes. There are so many to choose from, but these are my favorite affordable polishes to wear this spring.

Sally Hansen - Pacific Blue This is my newest nail polish, and was a #youtubemademebuyit moment, thanks to GlamLifeGuru. But at $2.99, how can you resist? It applies like a dream. 

Color Club - Top Shelf I got this in a birchbox, and it's such a pretty soft gold. It took me a while to try it, because it seemed so weak compared with the golds I was loving in the winter, like Zoya Ziv. Top Shelf is softer and paler, but just as pretty. 

OPI - Do You Lilac It? This is possibly my oldest nail polish, and it continues to be a favorite. Such a perfect purple.

Sally Hansen - Mint Sorbet
 Mint is my favorite "trendy" color right now, and this shade is gorgeous. It does take 3 coats.

Cover Girl - Pink-finity This is my perfect spring pink. It's pale, but still vibrant. Long-lasting, applies great. I love it for toes too!

Hope you found a winner in this affordable round up! Now, I need to find a peach / coral shade... Any recommendations for me?

Jergens BB Body Cream Review & Swatch

If you are anything like me, slathering makeup over your entire body falls squarely in the category of "things I don't have time for."

So when I received a sample of Jergens BB Body Cream in my March Birchbox, I was not excited. But I gave it a try.

Calling this lotion a BB cream gave me the impression that this would offer coverage. It does not.
It does have some sort of magic in it that makes your skin look fantastic.

It adds the tiniest amount of color. I am not brave enough to wear self tanner, because I am incredibly pale, and I think it would look super obvious if not done perfectly. But I love the very slight amount of color / self-tanner in this.

Also, and very important to me (see above, things I don't have time for), it absorbs so quickly, it doesn't feel like a total chore to apply.

And the smell. Yum. Jergens BB Body Cream smells like sunscreen, self-tanner, and cocoa butter, all rolled into one. That might not sound like the most delicious thing ever, but it is. Basically, it smells like summer. And I am pretty sure it will have a place on my dresser all summer long.
