Josie Maran Nirvana Hydrating Treatment Mist Review

Josie Maran Nirvana Hydrating Treatment Mist

You know I’m a completely face mist junkie so of course, as soon as Josie Maran Nirvana Hydrating Treatment Mist ($38) popped up on Sephora I had to grab it ASAP. Josie Maran Nirvana Hydrating Treatment Mist is a hydrating mist that nourishes and brightens skin with an alcohol-free formula that contains argan oil and coconut water. It also contains protien rich minerals and konja root spheres to plump and smooth skin as well as lemon and orange extract that act as a gentle exfolilator.

The Best Matte Lipsticks for Fall 2015

the best matte lipsticks

Love or hate it matte lipsticks are back for Fall 2015 and I’ve compiled a list of the best matte lipsticks for Fall 2015 that I think are utterly wearable, easy to apply, and easy to wear without drying your lips out.

I remember when I started my blog nearly 8 years ago and matte lipsticks were all the rage. Unfortunately, at that time I didn’t feel like the formula of any of these matte lipstick formulas on the market weren’t completely draining the moisture from my lips. For serious, wearing matte lipstick was a lot like that scene in Tank Girl where Kesslee stabs a water bottle into a dude’s back and proceeds to extra all the water from his body.

Needless to say matte lipsticks weren’t a pleasant experience. But mattes have evolved so much since 2007 with formulas that are creamier, longer wearing, and not nearly as moisture draining as they once were.

As we head into Fall 2015, matte lipsticks are going to become more and more popular with a possibility of the trend following into the Holiday season so here’s a list of the best matte lipsticks for Fall 2015 that are both new and older formulas I’ve used, loved, and didn’t have an issue with them draining the life moisture from my lips.
