New at Sephora: Huda Beauty

Already available online, and coming to store 5/21: Huda  Beauty Obessions palettes in Coral and Gemstone.


I already own all four of the other Obsessions palettes. So, honestly, my first thought when I saw them was “yes, I have to have the full set.” Ridiculous? Yes. I know. But, I quickly grabbed a hold of my senses and took a step back and thought about it.

First off, looking at both palettes…Finish reading over at Everyday Royal.


Spring Cleaning: Winter Empties, Skincare & Body

Hello, Beautiful People!

Welcome back to my blog! I know we are well into the Spring season, but I still wanted to share with you all of my final thoughts and reviews for all of the products that I finished up this past winter.

As I mentioned in my “First Empty of 2018” post, I think final reviews are the truest and most useful. By the time a person is done with a product, they have had ample time to wear it, test it under different conditions, pair it with different products, etc. So, without further delay, let’s get into my Winter Empties, Pt. 1- Skincare & Body.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1




This all-in-1 bi-phase cleanser is surprisingly powerful yet gentle to skin. It is specially formulated to effectively cleanse, remove even waterproof/longwear makeup, and refresh. Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean and refreshed without over-drying.”

Final Thoughts:

This was the first micellar water that I ever used. I thought it did a great job of removing my makeup, especially the waterproof version.

Did it live up to its claims? Yes. I think it definitely did.

Repurchase? Only the waterproof formula. Otherwise, I am happy with my current makeup wipes.

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream



This morning-after eye cream with coffee beans, panax ginseng, magnolia extract, and natural optic brighteners rapidly wakes up tired eyes. It helps reduce dark circles and unsightly bags, refreshing to restore a radiant look.”

Final Thoughts:

I loved that this eye cream smelled like citrus. It was definitely a refreshing scent for the morning. The pink color seemed to help brighten my under-eye area on my more tired days, but overall…continue reading over at Everyday Royal.

2 of the Same? ABH Modern Renaissance vs Soft Glam

Everyone says these two palettes are basically the same thing. So, I put it to the test so you don’t have to…

Hello beautiful people!

Ever since it was announced, the ABH Soft Glam palette has been compared relentlessly to its older sister, Modern Renaissance. Well, as someone who never owned either, I decided to give them both a try. 


First, I must admit that looking at both of them online, I really was convinced that they are extremely similar. However, once I saw them side by side and swatched and compared, I can honestly say… read the rest of this post on Everyday Royal.
