Stocking Stuffers – NYX Matte Lip Creams

Hello everyone! I hope your enjoying your day and preparing for the holidays! I know many of us, including myself, have been scrambling trying to find the perfect gifts for friends and family as Christmas is fast approaching. The NYX Matte Lip Creams not only are easily accessible, budget friendly, and pocket sized but also a wonderful option for stocking stuffers. If you are interested in knowing my thoughts then keep on reading! The NYX Matte Lip Creams can be found on the NYX website, Ulta, and Target for about $6.00. There are 22 total shades in the line ranging from soft neutrals, brilliant reds, and vampy shades. Today I will be sharing my thoughts on four shades: Amsterdam, Ibiza, Prague, and Addis Ababa. Amsterdam is a rich, orange-based red that glides on like a dream. I particularly love the doe foot applicator as I feel it gives me the precision I need especially when applying along the edges for a clean finish. This shade is wonderful and applies with full opacity adding some much …

NYX Retractable Lip Liner Review

Hello everyone! I hope all of you are absolutely lovely today. Today I am sharing my thoughts on the NYX Retractable lip liners in Red and Nude Pink. They retail for about $4.50 at Ulta making them a great affordable option for budget conscience beauty aficionados. They have 20 lip shades with varying finishes. Let’s jump into the review! Red  The packaging of the lip liner mimics the actual product color wonderfully. This matte bright red with warm orange undertones is a great liner under lipstick or on it’s own. It glides on and applies vibrant pigmentation on the lips with minimal effort making it an absolute joy to work with. One thing to keep in mind with this liner, as with the Nude Pink as well, is that due to it’s long lasting capability it is also rather drying on the lips. If you plan on using these lip liners, pay extra attention to the overall care of your lips: exfoliate and moisturizer them as the dry formula can emphasize dry patches. Nude Pink Once again, …

My Travel Bag – Favorite Jewelry

Hello everyone! I hope you are all lovely. If you have been keeping up with MAB’s social media, you’ll know that I am home now for the Thanksgiving holiday. I couldn’t be more thrilled to relax for a bit after a hectic couple of weeks. Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite jewelry that I find myself always packing when I travel! Rings I love keeping my rings simple and few. These two rings were gifts from family and have been with me for years. The classic designs have stood the test of time; non-trend based designs are best if you are seeking to invest in quality jewelry that can transcend changing fashions years from now. I can pair these two with virtually anything from a casual daytime look to an evening event. Earrings I am very deliberate when I choose my travel earrings. I pack varying sizes according to whatever occasion may arise or what outfit I may plan to wear. Aside from packing small studs for those quick outings I also choose more elaborate options. I …

OOTD – Cozy Knits and Leopard Print

Hello everyone! I hope all of you are lovely today. Before we dive into today’s post, I wanted to share exciting news with all of you. I have a final interview coming up on Thursday and I am absolutely overjoyed! I will keep all of you updated on how it all unravels. Keep your fingers crossed! I cannot begin to describe how thrilled I was to feel the cold air shaking up the usual Florida heat. Recently, I went thrift shopping and found this amazing knit scarf that came just in handy with the sudden cold front moving in. I practically want to live in it, it’s so cozy! The scarf was the basis to my outfit and what I used to select particular pieces. I paired the scarf with a leopard print skirt to create a soft palette of warm, fall neutrals. I find myself particularly drawn to leopard print during this time of year. I am not quite sure what it is, but I adore the print during the cooler seasons; don’t you? I paired the two pieces with a …

Transitioning to Fall Shades

Hello everyone! I am thrilled to be back with yet another post! Before sharing today’s post, I wanted to apologize for the sudden disappearance. I was quite ill for what felt like an eternity, but thankfully that has dissipated and I am delighted to create new content for all of you! Now let’s move on to today’s post. With fall in full swing and the crisp air starting to move in, fall nail polish shades are a must to bring together a cozy look. I wanted to share some of my favorites with all of you! Essie – For the Twill of It  This shade is an incredibly interesting holographic polish that applies beautifully on the nails. This multi-chrome polish shifts between teal, purple, magenta, and a deep rusty silver. I love this shade for fall as it is different take on the classic, low key autumnal polish. It maintains a discreet appeal while still being eye catching. Note: due to it’s metallic finish it can leave a streaky appearance so apply carefully. OPI – The Spy Who …

Makeup Tutorial – Garden Fairy Halloween Look

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a marvelous day. Today I am sharing yet another Halloween look inspired by garden fairies!  I love the bright colors paired with the luminous glow of the skin creating a soft, flirty look. To see how to get the look then continue below! Step 1: After appling your usual foundation and concealer, place a small piece of tape on the outer portion of the eye to create a crisp line later. Then blend a white creamy base all over your lid to prevent the eyeshadow from creasing as well as creating more vibrant pigmentation. Here I used NYX’s Jumbo Pencil in Milk.  Step 2: Apply a richly pigmented lime green shade over the entire eyelid extending it in a cat eye shape. Pack on the color so that full vibrancy is reached. I used the NYX’s Primal Colors shadow in Hot Green.  Step 3: Next I took a mix of a lavender and blue shades to soften the edges of the green and add dimension to the look. I also …
