Smith’s Rosebud Medley of Lip Balms (In a Tube)

Smiths Salve

I happen to be a traditionalist.

My first tin of Smith’s Rosebud Salve came into my possession nearly a decade ago and I’ve dubbed it the Solution to Life, the Universe, and Everything ever since that faithful day.

I’m pretty anal so my favorite salve in a tin form kicked in my OCD good nature and I was all worried about the germ and bacteria factor. Ew! Thankfully a year or two ago Smith’s blessed us with a tube version of their cult favorite balm. I loved it but like I said I’m a traditionalist and actually prefer the tin over the tube….

However, the good news is now Smiths’ has created a trio of their popular salves in a tube form and also indivdually…so you aren’t limited to the Rosebud Salve version anymore you can choose from other Smith’s Salves in this new packaging!

Sonia Kashuk Spring Awakenings Face Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Sonia Kashuk Spring Awakenings Face Palette 024

I used to be one of those girls that believed the perfect Summer eye look started and ended with various shades of aqua.

Sadly, I had to grow up and I can’t quite pull off aqua as well as I once could.

Nowadays I’m all about warm hues of brown and gold for Summer and various shades of softer peach, coral, and orange.

The new Sonia Kashuk Spring Awakenings Face Palette is my perfect pick for Spring/Summer looks.

Plus, dude, totally gives me Sophia kinda moments….

Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette 2

It’s probably to early to say this but I’m leaning towards saying that the Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette is my favorite Summer palette. I’m really loving softer more nude shades of shadow lately. I can’t quite go the bolder, crazy look for Summer anymore. Heck, I really loved aqua at one time as a primary shade for the warm weather but now I’m more about delicate shades of shimmering brown, gold, and bronze and the Softbox Eye Palette brings just that.

Photographers love shooting in natural light to create a diffused, softer look and that’s exactly what this palette does. The shades give a soft focused look that’s romantic and ethereal but still have the fun Summer vibe as well!

You NEED this palette.
