It feels like I’ve tried a good deal of skincare the past several months some of which were hits where as others were misses!

So hydrating and such a great daily moisturizer for us dry skin folks.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette32

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette ($42) is a new 14 shade eyeshadow palette that launched for Summer 2016 which is made up of mostly matte finish eyeshadows.

I hate doing reviews of products that are sold out as it creates really bad lemmings 🙁 Lemmings that can’t be fulfilled.

I thought I’d do a review anyway in the hopes this will pop back up into stock too. It’s funny as I was just discussing a few days ago how I wish Black Vanilla was a perfume and in that post I had expressed how much I really love Carol’s Daughter’s fragrances and how I thought they should do more perfumes and fragrance mists along with their hair and body care. And suddenly, up pops Carol’s Daughter Monio Eau de Toilette!
