Yves Saint Laurent Rebel Nudes Set for Fall 2016

I’m just saying no one wants the dry, nude lips that Pete Burns sported in the You Spin Me Round video. He might just be one of the reasons I’ve avoided nude lipsticks and lipglosses most of my makeup life. He was just sporting a bad case of zombie lips!

Only in the last two years or so have I embrace nude lips. I just don’t really feel very comfortable in the shade! I’ve since learned that nudes come in a variety of wearable shades and you can easily wear them without looking like rigor mortis set in!

For the 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, YSL brings together a selection of gorgeous nudes. The Rebel Nudes Set is $72 and it includes full sizes of the following:

  • Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick in 47 Beige Blouse
  • Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain in 07 Corail Aquatique
  • Plump Up Glossy Stain in 200 Plump Up

Yves Saint Laurent Rebel Nudes Set

These three products come tucked up in a black velvet, gold accented YSL makeup bag.

I’m going to buy one for myself and one for Pete Burns, I think he could use a good nude!

You can get yours at Nordstrom.com (early access today for card holders, everyone else can access it July 21st).

Lush MayPole Soap Minty Fresh and Sweet!

Lush MayPole Soap

I picked up a slice of Lush Maypole Soap recently because I need more soap like a need a hole right in my head. I swear I must be the cleanest person on the planet. Between the stockpile of Bath & Body Works Handsoaps I have and the tons of soaps and shower gels, well, if I’m not clean I don’t know who is.

I was just headed into Lush rather innocently to stock up on Ultra Bland. That’s my new cleansing kick by the way, Ultra Bland! It doesn’t dry my face out, keeps me super moist, and removes my makeup beautifully! Loves it. But yeah, anyway, I headed in for a repurchase and gave myself the, “You don’t need anything else! Purchase Ultra Bland and get out the door fast before they start offering up bath bomb demos!” talk before opening the door. Because you know, there’s nothing like a bunch of girls hovering over a salad bowl filled with water watching a bath bomb pop and fizzle in it. Why, Jebus, WHY!? Sometimes Lush SAs are as aggressive as Bath and Body Works ones.

Anyway, I’m slightly fuzzy on the details but somehow, someway Maypole Soap came home with me that day!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 Starts Today and Buy Buy Money!

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

2016 nordstrom anniversary sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 starts today! Nordstrom cardholders can pre-book Nordstrom Exclusive Makeup, Beauty, Skincare, Accessory, Clothing, and other goodies now at Nordstrom.com.

One of the most common questions I get about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is, “What’s on sale!? I don’t see anything on sale? Everything is full price!” That’s because there isn’t anything on sale. I know, weird name right? But the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happens once a year and is just made up of early access and exclusive products from shoes and purses to jeans and makeup. It’s sort of an early Fall 2016 preview. In most cases, Nordstrom is one of the first department stores to have many of the Fall 2016 Makeup and Beauty purchases you seeing during the “sale”. Even though they say it’s an exclusive, I’ve seen items pop up within a few months at places like Sephora. Although keep an eye out because some items are indeed exclusively available at Nordstrom and no where else such as a MAC Exclusive Collection, a Dior Collection, as well as other items!

Again, there’s no sale, nothing is marked down, that’s just the part of the name 🙂

Currently, I have my eye on a few items as well as some a few pairs of shoes and handbags I want for Fall. I think the sale has evolved considerably over the years and I found it much more exciting 7 or 8 years ago than I currently do. But there are some great value sets to be had during this time of the year as well as GWPs.

I decided this year I’d post about some of the items I liked individually, so I’ll be posting and discussing those items as the day progresses today! But I’m gagging to know what you’re grabbing up! Share your haul in the comments or your potential haul or your I don’t have money to splurge but made a wish list anyway!

Looking forwarding to hearing all about it!

Reasons I’m Loving Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid

This was provided to me by a brand for review and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post but all opinions are my own.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid

The Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid are a semi-new collection of creamy color correcting formulas that recently relaunched with Urban Decay Fall 2016. If you recall these arrived in the middle of February just at the peak of the color correcting trend.

At the moment, the chatter about color correcting has died down but I do believe you’ll hear more of it as we head deeper into Fall 2016. As an anti-fan of Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid. Essentially, Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid is the concealer formula but just in color correcting shades right? This made me a little wary of trying them as I wasn’t really a major fan of the concealer!

But they surprised me!
