Hey beauties! This past weekend was pretty eventful with plenty to celebrate. Graduating from college and my 24th birthday 😯 . Along with some pictures from my graduation and birthday, I’d like to share with you the amazing gifts I received for my birthday from my best friends. In other words… THIS IS A MAKEUP POST!!!
I made a wishlist of beauty proucts/makeup I am currently obsessing over and sent it out to Kim & Katrina. When I make wish lists, I make sure that everything that is on the list is something I love. I went to Sephora and checked out most of the items in person to make sure the list was final (lol). To my (not so) surprise, I loved everything! But I knew my BFF’s wouldn’t do me wrong ;).
Kim got me these lippies from NARS: Satin Lip Pencil ($25 in Lohdi), Larger than Life Lip Gloss ($26 in Paris Follies), and Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Happy Days:
What can I say about NARS? These have found a permanent place in my makeup bag. I’ve been going very tame on makeup so I sport these colors with little to no blush and just emphasize my eyebrows and wear some concealer.
Katrina surprised me with Josie Maran’s new Cheek Gelee ($22 in Pink Esape) & Dior’s Jelly Lip Pen ($26 in Carioca):

I used the Cheek Gelee for my birthday look. It did not feel sticky and stayed on all night…LOVE. I always experiment with new lip products so I was equally curious about a gel cream blush and am so glad I got it! It has 50% coconut water, vitamin E and argan oil so it is both hydrating and refreshing.
Tangerine lips are a new trend for summer and I fell in love with Dior’s Jelly Lip Pen’s subtle but playful take on it. The color goes on sheer but can also be piled on for a more opaque look.
Here are a few moments from my wonderful weekend:
*My manicure polish was Marshmallow by Essie ($8) and pedicure was Mermaid’s Dream by Deborah Lippman ($19)
* Katrina’s manicure polish was Pepperoni (1st coat) and Fishnet Stockings (2nd coat), and her pedicure was Marshmallow by Essie ($8)
* Kim’s manicure polish was A Crewed Interest and pedicure polish was Chastity by Essie ($8)
Tell us! What’s on your beauty wish list right now?
