Laura Geller Nude Kisses Lip Hugging Lip Gloss

Monday, May 21, 2018


If there's one thing that Laura Geller does well, it's lippies!  I mean, LG does everything well but her lip products are easily some of my most reached for.  From the stunning lip toppers and rich, creamy lip formula to her gorgeous lip glosses there is certainly something for everyone! Today, i wanted to share my latest Laura Geller lippie obsession! The Nude Kisses Lip Hugging Lip Gloss is a comfortable formula that glides on to the lips like butter.  These beauties are pigmented, pack on the shine and are basically the perfect Spring/Summer situation.  Not only do i love the formula and wearability, but the shade range is perfection if you are as big of a fan of nudes as i am!  Warning... it will be so hard to pick just one! Sorry (insert shoulder shrug emoji)!

The New Drugstore Palette and Lippie Combo You NEED now!

Sunday, May 20, 2018

Katy Perry's latest collaboration with COVERGIRL is essentially GOLD! While i enjoy drugstore makeup, i tend to reach for higher end palettes but playing with Covergirl's new Katy Kat Palettes has taught me a great lesson.... DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A DRUGSTORE PALETTE!!!  OK, you got me!  These palettes are incredibly pigmented, blend quite nicely and the color selection works for a plethora of looks!  Whether you wanna go bold, smoky or nude, these beauties have you covered! You will get a wonderful blend of shimmers, foil like textures as well as mattes.  I am blown away! Sadly, i haven't been able to spot these online but check your local drugstores for these beauties!  You will not regret this purchase!

I also feel the need to chat about the Katy Kat Gloss!  The color range is wild but i found two shades that work so beautifully for me that i simply cannot put them down!  They're perfect for Spring! Tabby Tease has truly been my jam this spring.  This gorgeous soft coral is perfection and feel so comfortable on my lips.  If you follow me on instagram, you know I've been loving it up.  Another shade i love is Cateloupe. It's a pretty, shimmery nude that looks beautiful alone or layered over your favorite lippie!  Both of these are currently in my makeup pouch for quick touch ups during the day.

Also loving the Covergirl Peacock Flare MascaraIt does an amazing job of separating the lashes as well as creating volume and length.  It's such a drugstore gem!  I also had fun playing with Covergirl's lash products. If you're looking for drugstore brow products that work, check out the Sculpt and Set Pomade paired with the Micro-Fine and DefineThey work so well together and i love that these products don't break the bank!

This is a collection worth checking out!  The products are beautiful, pigmented and budget friendly!  

Speaking of Covergirl, I've been testing out the new Matte foundation and i will have that review up for you soon!  You don't wanna miss that post!  Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM

BY TERRY Sun Designer Palette 2018

Wednesday, May 2, 2018

A couple of years ago, i purchased my first BY TERRY Sun Designer palette and fell instantly in love with every aspect of this palette!  From the packaging, the pigmentation and blendability, this palette was a dream.  Thing is, these palettes are limited edition and sell out FAST!  I actually hit pan on my palette and as you all know, hitting pan on any makeup is not an easy feat for a beauty blogger!  I mean, this palette was seriously loved!  Naturally, when i spotted this year's Sun Designer palettes i knew i had to get my hands on them!  First, i know I'll get great use out of them.  Second, this year's palettes are significantly lower in price ($55 versus over $80 for the previous year's palettes) without skimping on quality.  Third, they're a multi-tasking dream because you can use them as bronzer, blush, highlighter and even eye shadow!

Happy Sun

Happy Chic

There are two Sun Designer palettes for 2018.  Truth be told, i couldn't decide on just one so i purchased them both. I honestly don't know how anyone could possibly make such a choice!  Happy Sun and Happy Chic are the ultimate Spring/Summer BFF.  Happy Chic is filled with gorgeous corally pinks and blush tones.  Happy Sun will have you looking like a sun-kissed Goddess which, if I'm gonna be honest is exactly the look i wanna channel this Summer sooooo.....  I've been wearing them nonstop and see myself doing so until (gulp) they hit pan too!  If i can make ONE suggestion, don't wait to purchase these! If you love them and think that you'll get a ton of use out of them, act fast because they will sell out!

You can purchase these palettes here, here and here!  They're absolutely gorgeous and i have no doubt that you will love them as  much as i do! Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM


The Only Palette You Need!

Monday, April 16, 2018

Sometimes you just want to keep things simple!  I mean, it's great having a huge stash of makeup and all but some days, i love and appreciate the simplicity of a palette that can just do it all ya know?  This is not an easy task considering that in order to 'do it all' a palette needs to cover your essential makeup needs, have universally flattering shades and seamless blendability.  I'm so excited to share with you the Fold Out Face Palette from Woosh!  I'm not gonna lie, I'm very picky with my palettes. In fact, while i love a great multi-tasking situation, I'm often weary of how well they will perform.  Well, this little gem of a palette passed with flying colors! The skin perfecting concealers allow you to easily brighten, contour, correct and even out skin tone.  The powders set it all in place.  This palette includes four neutral eye shadows but if you use a flat angled brush, you can essentially use the deepest color as an eyeliner.  The blush and highlight create a gorgeous lit-from-within look leaving your skin looking healthy and simply beautiful.

The Palette Shown is in the shade Medium/Light

Notably, this palette is also:

100% Cruelty-free 

It's available in 5 shade ranges and you can purchase it alone or with the secret brush set.  You can also purchase it with the essential brush set bundle!  Whatever set you decide on, know that you have a wonderful palette that you can easily toss in your bag for travel or quick touch ups.  Not sure how to use any of these products in the palette?  Fear not, this beauty comes with step-by-step instructions so if makeup application is not your thing, this will certainly help guide you!  Overall, I'm very impressed with the wearability and blendability of this palette.  I have reached for it quite a bit since it arrived at my doorstep and have no doubt that you will too!  

The eyeshadows

The Concealers/Contour/Powder

Blushes, Highlighter and Finishing Powders

You can purchase this palette here!  I hope you love it as much as i do! Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM
