Jing Ai Cosmetics: Natural Beauty Products

I first heard of beauty brand Jing Ai Cosmetics while watching a beauty event on QVC (yes, I’m totally guilty of spending hours in front of the TV on Tuesday Night Beauty), and I heard great things about the line’s natural, organic  ingredients, vegan formulas, and high-intensity color payoff. I was first able to actually give the products a try when the brand’s creator came to an Earth Day event in my town. I’m really glad that I got to sample the luxurious blushes, bronzers, and eye products for myself! Continue Reading »

And then I never wanted to cut my hair again. But this isn’t a story about my hair history. This is a review of FAST Shampoo & Conditioner.

A Beauty Review: Benefit’s They’re Real Push-Up Liner

When Benefit announced their new They’re Real Push-Up Liner and said there was an opportunity to buy it before it hit stores, I couldn’t resist. I love makeup, I love makeup that’s supposed to make my life easier, and I loved the idea that it was exclusive. I was totally a victim of their marketing scheme, but it didn’t matter – I wanted They’re Real. And I got it.

Manicure Monday: Summer Sunsets

Manicure Monday: Summer Sunsets via The Collabor-eightSummer is by far my favorite season. There is nothing I love more than relaxing on the beach – I love to put my beach chair right where the surf hits the sand. It’s hot out, but with the water coming up and hitting my feet … there’s just no better feeling. Naturally, I had to create a manicure dedicated to it! I’ve seen a few palm tree manicures floating around Pinterest, so I had to try one myself. The colors, the vibe, everything connects me to the summer season. Learn how to get this look yourself below!
