I got 4-full size glosses for the price of one — you can’t beat that! The packaging is amazing — and keep reading to see how the glosses measure up!

Obsessed with #OMBRE featuring #NYX

If you love ombre lips, you’ve got to get your hands on the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks!! My favorites for everyday wear are “Cherry Skies” and “Vintage.” Once I got a few nearly the ENTIRE collection I found out they’re great for creating ombre looks.

Here are a few combinations you can ombre out to your heart’s desire!

For a subtle look combine “Vintage”and “Soft Spoken.” Start with “Vintage” around the outside. Then apply “Soft Spoken”inside, and blend with a lip brush.



For a glam look grab “Kitten Heels” and “Sandstorm.” Start with “Kitten Heels”around the outside. Then apply “Sandstorm” inside, and blend with a lip brush.


Reach for “Stone Fox”and “Cherry Skies” if you’re daring! Start with “Stone Fox” on the outside. Then apply “Cherry Skies” inside, and blend with a lip brush.

What are your favorite ombre looks — and what products do you use to create them? Let me know in the comments below!

Lessons From #LesterHolt

Lessons From #LesterHolt

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet the new anchor of NBC Nightly News, Lester Holt. If you don’t know who Lester Holt is, you may have been living under a rock (and it’s not 30 Rock!). He’s been anchoring the Today Show, Weekend Nightly News, and Dateline for years.

Lester dropped some serious knowledge during his visit to Baltimore, and I’m so glad I got the chance to soak up some wisdom. What he confirmed is this–nothing can stop you from your destiny, even if it seems like getting there is impossible.
