I'm a self-proclaimed lip balm addict and am always looking for a Sephora Kiss Me Balm replacement. YEAH, Sephora discontinued my long-time favorite and I have yet to find another supreme lip balm. A few have come close, but there are some products you just cant replace. SO the lip balm section in my Cosmocube continues to grow..

On the list - Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick in peach and colorless AND one of my favorite cosmetic brands, Too Faced Peach Lip Balm. 


If you like the scent of peach, you're gonna love this lip treatment - Too Faced Peach Lip Balm smells delicious AND taste kinda yummy too! The peaches and cream infused balm is light-medium weight, non-sticky and super nourishing. I prefer a stick over a pot (there's something about sticking your fingers in the product that turns me off), BUT the texture and scent make up for the less than desirable packaging. I just wanna eat it - well, I don't want to eat lip balm, but the scent is inviting.


I got these Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Sticks at Revolve and I am impressed. The texture is light-weight, creamy and creates a full-coverage film over your lips. The scent is nothing to write home about, but it ain't gross either. The peach color is little orange for me - I apply it under pink lipstick for a peachy lip look. The colorless balm is perfect for daily wear, a lipstick foundation or just a little nourishment.

Latest Lip Loves

June 20, 2018

Lipstick, lip balms, lip exfoliators, lip treatments.. I'm addicted to lip'stuff'! It's not even possible to use everything in my giant Cosmocube, but I just cant help myself. My latest lip loves are the perfect summer shades and a new nourishing balm. 

Too Faced quickly became one of my favorite cosmetic brands this year. I purchased everything from the Peach collection and now I'm addicted. This Too Faced Peach Beach lipstick is the perfect coral shade. The color enhances sun-kissed skin and gives a pop of flirty, summer color. It's not bright (or florescent - like some), but rather a subtle coral.  

The creamy product glides on nicely and feels like it's nourishing your lips. The scent is kinda strange and off-putting (oh, and it lingers). I think they were going for a peach scent, but I'm confused by the outcome? Albeit, I still love the color and the texture is nice.

The packaging is attractive, solid and goes well with my Pat McGrath Labs Lip Fetish Lip Balm..


Since Sephora discontinued my favorite Kiss Me lip balm, I've been on the hunt for a balm just a good (it's been a struggle). I've purchased a few great ones, but everything pales in comparison to the Kiss Me Balm.

Pat McGrath Labs Lip Fetish Lip Balm is definitely a contender for the favorite title. The packaging is great, solid and I love the gold-tone lips embellishment. The barely-there scent is subtle (I like that). The balm is creamy (I can feel a little wax), lightweight and feels nice. It's lighter than most balms I've tried, but you can feel the product on your lips. 


The Sephora Collection #lipstories lipstick lineup currently consist of 40 thoughtfully packaged shades in matte, metallic and satin finish. I love the decorative tubes. They're small and each one dons art representing adventures around the world. The packaging itself seems a little cheap, but don't be fooled - the lipstick is good quality. 

I'm a nude, peach and coral lipstick kinda girl. I rarely sway from my go-to shades, but if you love trying new colors, this collection is perfect. The lipsticks are inexpensive and small. You won't feel terrible if you dislike the color and toss it. 

I purchased satin finish 03 OUI! (cream finish) and 06 Tan Lines (cream finish). These shades are perfect for my skin tone. They are lightweight and still give you full-coverage. 03 OUI! is a pale rose tone and 06 Tan lines is more nude with a little hint of peach. The lipstick goes on nicely and doesn't dry out your lips. I always apply a nourishing lip balm minutes before applying lipstick (you should try this method). 

Both lipsticks have a fruity scent, so I'm assuming they all do. I'm not a scented lipstick fan, but could it be worse and smell like flowers! YES, they're are floral scented lipsticks! YUCK!

I'm a fan of the Sephora Collection #lipstories lipstick collection. Sephora - PLEASE stop discontinuing our favorites and bring back the Kiss Me Balm!

The Perfect Gifts List 2017

December 12, 2017

Admittedly, there's a few 'to me, from me' gifts under the tree this year, AND a few that didn't even make it to the tree! I'm a self-proclaimed gifting master and every year I buy myself awesome gifts. Here's a 'Perfect Gifts List' for the shopaholic, tea lovin', cosmetic junkie in your life..

The perfect gift starts with great wrapping paper, bows and tags. Choose a color scheme and get creative - I like black, white, red, silver and gold. I purchased these gift tags by eighty seventh ST. last year. This year, I also have 'No Peeking' tags, and HUGE 'From Santa' and 'Merry Christmas' tags in black and gold. The array of gift wrapping under my tree should be displayed in a department store - if I do say so myself.



Christmas tree ornaments are the perfect gift for the 'I'm obsessed with Christmas' person in your life. I LOVE Christmas and each year I receive a new champagne ornament. Pier One Imports has the best ornaments. Every holiday they release new ones, but kinda stick with the theme they've had previous years - Christmas penguins, owls and lots of sparkly tree splash.


Git cards are the ultimate gift. I like giving and receiving gift cards (hint hint). You still have that moment when you exchange gifts, BUT the idea keeps on giving.. You get to shop your favorite store or if your lucky enough to get an AMEX or VISA gift card, you can shop anywhere. 

I know some people think gift cards are not personal and denote a lack of effort - So opt for a unique card holder. I purchased this faux-fur pouch at Pier One Imports. I love anything furry. Yes, this gift is for me. From my gift giving experience, people love to receive gift cards.


Of course I have some beauty products on my list. This Amika Polished Perfection Mini Straightening Brush is unique and inexpensive. This small thermal straightening brush is great for touch-ups and on-the-go styling. There is a full-size version of this hairbrush-straightener, but I like the mini size better. This heated tool won't give you results like a traditional straightener, but does minimize frizz, leaves your hair shiny and is great for travel. 


I LOVE the Peaches and Cream Collection by Too Faced. These products are infused with peach and sweet fig cream. Who wouldn't want peach scented makeup. Too Faced should produce a body cream with this scent..

The Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipstick is a velvety formula that feels creamy and gives you a matte look. Oh, and it smells like Strawberry Shortcake (the doll). LOVE. 

The peach scent of the Peach Frost Melting Powder Highlighter is delicious. The highlighter feels creamy to touch, but glides on seamlessly, and transforms into a powder on your skin. The peachy, gold-tone is warm and gives you a nice glow.

The Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush is a cream to powder product as well. The product is nice and goes on smooth - I recommend applying it with a kabuki brush or your fingers.  

Too Faced Translucent Finishing Powder is a peach-colored powder that smoothes imperfections and gives you a nice warm look. The powder contains optical-correcting spheres - for a luminescent finish, but gives you a warm, matte look. 

Too Faced Sweet Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer looks and smells like a delicious pie. This is not a contouring bronzer, but rater an all over, radiance-boosting bronzer. I use it on my face, neck and décolleté. 

For the makeup loving, product junkie in your life, anything from this collection will do.


Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir is on my 'Perfect Gifts List' again this year. This beauty oil has forever changed my makeup routine and enhanced my look dramatically. I apply my foundation with a brush. Then I apply 'many' drops of the elixir to my damp beautyblender and gently blend my foundation for perfect coverage. I use the same beautyblender (and Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir) to blend my concealer, under eye brightener and cream-to-powder highlighter. This elixir is amazing. Sephora recently added the Farsáli lineup to their shelves. This Rose Gold Elixir is available in two sizes - 15 ml and 30 ml. 


My list wouldn't be complete without tea products. I'm obsessed with tea - I drink five to seven cups a day. This 24 Days of Tea Set by Davids Tea was on my wishlist, but I was worried the limited edition would sell out, so I bought it for myself! Anyone who likes tea will love this set of 24 popular tea blends. Davids Tea has smaller tea sets as well. I'm hoping someone buys me the 'Best of 2017' set.

PLAY! by Sephora

November 17, 2017

I've had many cosmetic subscriptions in the past. The first box was always exciting, but as the months pass, the products seem to become less interesting 'drug store' brands. There's nothing wrong with drug store cosmetics, BUT that's not what I signed up for. I always end up cancelling the subscription after a few months. 

Until now.. PLAY! by Sephora has taken 'cosmetic subscriptions' to a higher level of standard. Play! is my favorite beauty box subscription. I've been receiving these little collectible bags of goodies for eight months and have no plans to cancel. There are no drug store brands in this program. Every product is from the Sephora lineup. Each month you receive five deluxe makeup, skincare and haircare samples, AND a bonus fragrance sample. 


Play! by Sephora The Iconic Edition was a limited edition beauty box. This one was for purchase only and not a part of the monthly Play! subscription. The gold-tone zipper pouch contained premier cosmetic brand samples Dior, Guerlain, Yves Saint Laurent, La Mer and Burberry. Not sure if you're familiar with La Mer, but that stuff is EXPENSIVE! This deluxe sample alone made The Iconic Edition worth the purchase.


Each month you'll receive five deluxe samples of best-selling products at Sephora. I usually keep two or three and share the rest with friends. A girl can only hoard so much. I can open a Sephora pop-up shop with all the products I have tucked away (they're hidden so no-one sees my addiction and takes my credit card away)!       

The excitement of opening the box, getting your little collectible bag and stellar deluxe samples makes my day. It's like a 'Cosmetic Christmas' every month. AND these deluxe samples are amazing. 

I'm always happy to see my favorite brands - Bumble and Bumble, Benefit, Sol Janeiro, MILK, (I'd like to see some Too Faced products..), but new brands and cosmetics are welcome. This program allows you to try new cosmetics you would necessarily buy. Most of us are creatures of habit, and hey, if it ain't broken don't fix it! BUT, sometimes change is good and you'd be surprised at what your missing by sticking to the same old brands you've been using for way too long.


Each beauty box contains a little, draw-string bag with beauty-inspired sayings and prints. I love these little collectible bags. They're great for gifts. I also use them when I pack, they're perfect for organizing little things in my suitcase. 


Each box contains a Play! Book with tips, product descriptions and how-tos. Your subscription gives you exclusive access to how-to videos and tutorials on Sephora.com. You can also view the current (and past) Play! boxes online. 

You will receive a PLAY! Pass - 50 bonus Beauty Insider points. You can redeem these points when you purchase products in-store. Since Sephora introduced Rewards Bazaar, Beauty Insider points are invaluable. The revised rewards program drops amazing one-of-a-kind experiences, services from Sephora, as well as other top brands, and deluxe-size samples and sets every Tuesday and Thursday. I'm banking my points for something great. 

Each month there is a subscriber-only event. Play! Date allows you and a friend to come in-store to play with products and meet Sephora beauty experts. 

Play! by Sephora has so much to offer.. AND best of all, it's $10 a month! Yup, that's it. You would have to spend $50 to gain 50 Beauty Insider points - you're getting 50 bonus points each month, five deluxe beauty samples, a perfume sample, AND exclusive access to events. DROP THE MIC!

November 24, 2017 - OK, I'm browsing Sephora.com one week after I posted about Play! by Sephora - AND you can purchase these little bags of beauty products for $10 on Sephora.com. These boxes are exclusive, limited edition and online only.

Just Peachy

November 01, 2017

I LOVE the Peaches and Cream Collection by Too Faced. I'm pale, with black hair, so peach is my color, and who wouldn't want peach scented makeup. These products are infused with peach and sweet fig cream. Too Faced should produce a body cream with this scent..

I usually have a lot to say about product scents - if cosmetic companies insist on a scented makeup product, go with fruity, chocolate or nutty scents. STOP with the old-lady perfume smells. Seems like newer brands are more conscious of scents and cater to the newer generations. Older, established brands tend to use 'older', outdated scents. 


I'm slowly moving away from my go-to brands, and realizing that I've been missing out on great cosmetics. Change is good. Too Faced is one of my new favorite makeup brands. The products are great, the selection is versatile and the packaging is fun (Instagram worthy). I'm swiftly becoming a super-fan of this brand.


Too Faced Translucent Finishing Powder is a peach-colored powder that smoothes imperfections and gives you a nice warm look. This finishing powder is great for blurring and correcting harsh blush and bronzer lines. OR you can lightly brush the powder all-over. The powder contains optical-correcting spheres - for a luminescent finish, but gives you a warm, matte look. 

Too Faced Sweet Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer looks and smells like a delicious pie. The bronzer is made of three colors - Candied Peach (pink, Caramelized Peach (light brown), and Golden Peach (medium brown), blend together seamlessly. This is not a contouring bronzer, but rater an all over, radiance-boosting bronzer. I use it on my face, neck and décolleté. 


Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush is a cream to powder product. These make me nervous! BUT I thought I'd give it a try.. The product is nice and goes on smooth - I recommend applying it with a kabuki brush or your fingers. For a light, flushed look, pat onto the apples of your cheeks. For a more sculpted look, roll your kabuki brush half-way and apply in a pressing motion. Peach My Cheeks is available in six colors - I purchased Peach Dream. It's a little lighter than I expected, but looks pretty on my pale skin. Oh and smells amazing!

I'm obsessed with Kiss Me Balm by Sephora, and am super bummed that they discontinued it. Yeah, I stocked up before they sold out, but I've been on a mission to find a new favorite. Just posted and already out of stock, the Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint is AMAZING (and officially my new favorite). The barely-there color blends with your natural lip color and gives a subtle pink shade that enhances your own lips. The creamy texture goes on nicely and nourishes your lips. I like the packaging - the tube is a bit smaller than the average lipstick and the pearl white case is chic. 

Anytime the conversation of best lip enhancers comes up, I'm shouting TOO FACED LIP INJECTION EXTREME from the rooftop! This lip plumper will give you the ultimate pouty lip. Lip Injection Extreme isn't new, but now there's a mini version (LOVE). 

The Sephora Lip Color Lip Last Lipstick in Oh My Beige! and Sephora Rouge Gel Lip Liner in The Nudest are a match made in nude lips heaven. The gel-cream texture of the liner glides on smoothly and the nude shade matches my lips perfectly. The liner is retractable, so no sharpening and no shavings. The Lip Last Lipstick is oh so creamy. The color is a bit lighter than I'd like, but combined with 'The Nudest' lip liner create the perfect nude lip shade. Strawberry Short Cake is back and channeling her scent through Lip Last Lipsticks! The scent is amazing (and addictive). It really does smell like my favorite childhood doll. I will definitely purchase more Lip Last Lipsticks and Gel Lip Liners..

Beauty's Besties

September 26, 2016
I already have a blotterazzi and many beauty blenders, but I couldn't resist the beautyblender + Too Faced holiday kit. I'm like a deer in headlights when it comes to light pink! I love this set, especially the mini highlighting compact by Too Faced.

I'm lovin' the light pink original beautyblender. Good to know - wash your beautyblender prior to the first use and after each makeup application, and always wet your beautyblender before applying makeup - I wet my beautyblender in water, squeeze out excess water and then apply a few drops of oil (Farsali Rose Gold Elixir is amazing).

The blotterazzi compact is super cute and the teardrop shaped makeup sponges are more subtle than the original bright fuchsia blotterazzi. The blotterazzi is a reusable oil absorbing sponge. There are two pink sponges inside the plastic mirrored compact. The water drop shaped compact has a vent at the back and a clear, hygienic separator to keep the sponges fresh. The unique shape (a flat version of the beautyblender) allows you to blot the contours of your face with ease while removing excess oil. 

The Too Faced Candlelight Glow highlighting powder duo comes in a small custom-designed compact. The Rosy Glow highlighting powder diffuses light, creating a subtle glow. Apply to your cheekbones, nose and brow line for a lit-from-within look. This mini Candlelight Glow compact is perfect for on-the-go touchups and travel.

Transform Your Look

June 06, 2016
Dramatically change your look AND simplify your beauty routine with Benefit Gimme Brow volumizing fiber gel, Buxom Lash Mascara and Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. The 'easy' fresh-faced, summer look is my favorite and I'm a self-proclaimed pro at this 'no makeup, makeup' look. Gimme Brow, Buxom mascara and Extreme lip plumper are my 'I can't live without' makeup products for this simple look. 

If you follow my blog, you know I'm no stranger to lip injections! Unfortunately, filler diminishes and you can only inject so much in a period of time. When your accustom to full lips and awaiting your next visit to the dermatologist, Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme will give you the ultimate pouty lip. The non-sticky gloss will give you an 'extreme' tingly feeling (love that) and your lips will appear much fuller within minutes. I have tried too many lip plumpers to mention and Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme still reigns supreme. 

Of course, when a new 'revolutionary' mascara hits the beauty scene, I'm the first to buy it, but I always go back to Buxom Lash Mascara. This mascara goes on light and builds nicely, without clumping. There's never too much product on the brush and the little bristles do a great job separating your lashes evenly. The brush is big, so getting into the corner can be an issue - Bobbi Brown Intensifying Long Wear Mascara is perfect for the outer corner. I know artists say to let the first coat dry and the aptly the next, but I disagree. Continuously applying Buxom Lash mascara will create longer, voluminous lashes with no mess.

Benefit Gimme Brow volumizing fiber gel is fairly new product in my makeup routine. Despite its newbie status, this little tube takes priority. I can do without mascara, but not brow gel. Gimme Brow has a thick, creamy texture that allows you to layer the product and build up your eyebrow hairs. Tip: let the first coat dry before applying the next. The short wand and little tapered brush (it's all about the brush) allow for precise application. Using little pressure and short strokes you can transform your brows in little time. The product does claim to adhere to skin allowing you to create artificial hairs. I prefer to keep it natural and avoid 'overdoing' my brows. Penciled-in brows look great in pics, but not so nice up close. Benefit Gimme brow gel is a 'MUST-HAVE'.

Yassas Greece

July 09, 2015
I'm packing for Santorini, Greece (YAY!) and thought I'd share with you my summer vacation essential cosmetics list and vacation beauty advise. Rule #1 - keep your makeup natural and your routine simple.

Opt for a natural glow with Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder and Bobbi Brown Blush and Highlighter Cheek Palette - shades of coral brighten your face and accentuate your bronzed skin. Buxom Mascara in black will make your lashes thicker, longer and give you a naturally enhanced look. I'm a lipstick girl, so it's no surprise I have four lip products in my cosmetic bag - Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme for the ultimate pouty lip, YSL Tint-in-Oil lip gloss to nourish my lips, Dior Addict Lip Glow in coral for the perfect summer shade and Bite Beauty BB for lips to hydrate, prime and protect my lips from sun damage.

Where there are tropical temperatures there is usually humidity which = frizzy, unmanageable hair! Don't fuss over a perfect hairstyle and opt for wavy 'I'm on vacation and I don't care' hair. Bumble and Bumble Prêt-à-Powder is a light dry shampoo with a fresh scent (oh and gives great volume when applied to roots). For texture and light hold in your waves use Bumble and Bumble Dryspun Finish.

Protecting your body from sun damage is of the utmost importance. I use Tizo3 sunscreen on my face (day and night, cause it's a great tinted primer), Skin Ceuticals Epidermal Repair for much needed moisturizing after the sun - this cream is used to repair skin after facial procedures and works great on sunburns. After a long day in the sun, the fresh scent of Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash (reminds me of blueberries) will leave your skin feeling rejuvenated - this cleanser removes makeup and oil while gently exfoliating your skin. Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash is effective and refreshing.

Best Red Lipsticks 2014

December 11, 2014
I've been testing red lipsticks for weeks trying to find the best color and most wearable in terms of application and endurance. Here are my three favorite red lipsticks for this holiday season:

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Ruby. The color is vibrant, like a deep berry red. The product is non-sticky and stays put - it doesn't run into the tiny wrinkles around your lips. Melted lipstick will last all night, as long as you sip your drink carefully and opt for small bites. It is crazy hard to remove! I suggest getting a lip stain remover or using eye make-up remover that contains oil. 

Bobbi Brown Scotch on the Rocks Lip Color in Sultry Red. The name says it all - Your sexy, sultry red lips against the golden colored scotch you've been sipping all night is so seductive. Sultry Red is the truest red, the perfect color for your holiday style. The lipstick is soft, creamy and goes on nicely. It will wear off slightly, so keep the festive gold tube in your clutch for touchups.

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Provocateur was my red lipstick of choice last winter and it is still my go-to for this holiday season. Provocateur is rich, bright and has a subtle shine. This lipstick will stay on all night long!

The Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick line consists of ten fabulous colors: Violet Orchid, Rosy Orchid, Hot Pink, Candy Pink, Bright Fuchsia Pink, Blood Red, Berry Red, Creamy Coral, Dusty Rose, and Neutral Nude. The colors are bright and adventurous. I love the Creamy Coral, it has an orange tint that looks great on pale skin. I plan to buy all six of the Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks. These colors will bring your look to life! 

The slanted sponge applicator and squeeze tube make for easy, precise application. The gloss applies nicely and is non-sticky. These lipsticks sell for $21 at toofaced.com and Sephora.

Too Faced Lip Injection gloss and lipsticks reign over all lip plumpers! The Lip Injection Extreme lip gloss is the ultimate lip plumping treatment. Your lips instantly become fuller and flushed with color. The scent is delicious and your lips tingle for a few minutes after application. I love the tingling sensation.

The Lip Injection Color Bomb is a moisture plumping lip tint. It is a crayon-like applicator that applies beautiful matte color. The lip tint comes in six shades, Bigger Berry, Eastwood Red, Plump It Up Pink, Coral Pop, Candy Burst, and Never Enough Nude.  The colors go on like a lipstick, and moisturize your lips while plumping them. It also leaves a tingling sensation in your lips after application. My favorite color is Coral Pop, it is the perfect coral/pink for spring. 

The Lip Insurance treatment is a lip primer. Apply this solution prior to lipstick or stain and it will prevent feathering around the edge of your lips.
