Buxom 6 Degrees Below Sexy Plumping Full-On Lip Polish Collection on Belle Belle Beauty

I saved this last Ulta 21 Days of Beauty suggestion for last because it is always the one I stock up on during the event. Buxom’s Lip Polish is my absolute favorite. I share with family and friends all year round because it is just too good to keep to myself. This year’s set is a 6-piece mini of some serious crowd-pleasing shades.

The formula has a slight tingle that refreshes and adds a little plump. The finish is so shiny but without all the transfer that can be so annoying. These shades are super sheer so don’t be thrown by how they look on the tube. Even the darkest is a hint of color. Which I love because they are so wearable. Shades included in this collection:

  • Dominique (glittering ice)
  • Amy (golden nude)
  • Celeste (prismatic soft peach)
  • Clair (starry plum haze)
  • Starr (brandy cordial)
  • Jasmine (black cherry)

My favorite is Amy – just a hint of golden finish for a natural look. Hurry into Ulta before their event ends tomorrow!

Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette on Belle Belle Beauty

I am back today with another palette from Ulta that will make you run to their 21 Day of Beauty event going on now through Saturday. While I don’t wear lipstick a ton, if I do, these days it is Urban Decay. Their formulas have so much pigment. They stay on, making them wearable for long evening events and days at the office. If you can’t commit to a tube of just one color, this palette has so many classics and favorites.

Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette contains twelve shades that range from light to dark and in all six Urban Decay finishes. I love how the shades apply without tugging and really nourish lips. It almost goes on even better with a brush rather than tube. For the artists out there, the shades can be used together for contouring and layering.

The palette is slick and modern. They even made the wells with a little step so you can wipe excess product off the brush – brilliant! Lipstick devotees will love this for travel. Shades Included:

  • Sheer Shame (Sheer) berry
  • Firebird (Cream) deep fuchsia
  • Big Bang (Metallized) bright pink sparkle
  • Disobedient (Cream) medium pink
  • EZ (Cream) bright red-orange
  • 714 (Mega Matte) bright red
  • Vanished (Sheer) pale neutral nude
  • 1993 (Comfort Matte) medium brown
  • Ex-Girlfriend (Sheer Shimmer) nude-rose w/pink shimmer
  • Amulet (Metallized) metallic brick rose
  • Conspiracy (Metallized) plum-bronze shimmer
  • Blackmail (Comfort Matte) deep berry wine

Available at Ulta.

IT COSMETICS  Superhero Eye Transforming Anti-Aging Super Palette on Belle Belle Beauty

It is that time of year again! Ulta Beauty is in the middle of their Fall 21 Days of Beauty Campaign and it is the perfect time to stock up. I’ll be showcasing a couple favorites over the next week. There are some wonderful finds to take you into the fall season. If you aren’t familiar with Ulta’s festivities, this is how it works: Ulta Beauty offers a new deal on a different product or brand each day.

One of my favorites I have encountered is from a brand I adore for their formulas and anti-aging prowess. IT COSMETICS  Superhero Eye Transforming Anti-Aging Super Palette is one of those palettes that does it all. The shades are so flattering and include base shades that are an everyday staple, crease shades that are neutral while being stunning, and versatile liners.

The formula is where this really shines. Developed with plastic surgeons, it includes collagen, silk, peptides and antioxidants. So the shadow actually improves the look of skin. The “Superhero Eye Foundation” color corrects, neutralizes and smoothes lids. And I might add the silky texture makes it a dream to apply.

The twelves shades are so easy to use for my workday look. These tips from the brand are great for inspiration for new looks. Although I have to admit, I will use just the base shades more often than not, but I do love these ideas when I am feeling creative (and have some extra time when I am getting ready):

Superhero Classic:

  • Dust Superhero Eye Foundation Eyeshadow in Confidence onto lid and up to brow bone as base shade.
  • Sweep Superhero Neutrals in Unstoppable over entire lid.
  • Dip an IT Cosmetics eyeliner brush into your Superhero Liners in Daring and create a line along upper/lower lashline.
  • Buff Superhero Liners in Fearless into your crease using circular motions.

Superhero Smokey:

  • Dust Superhero Eye Foundation Eyeshadow in Magical onto lid and up to brow bone as base shade.
  • Sweep Superhero Neutrals in Superstar over entire lid.
  • Buff Superhero Liners in Daring into your crease using circular motions.
  • Dip a dampened eyeliner brush into your Superhero Liners in the Superhero shade and create a bold line along upper/lower lashline.

Available at Ulta Beauty.


Alterna Haircare Caviar Repair Multi-Vitamin Heat Protection Spray on Belle Belle Beauty

I’ve been a long-time fan of Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Complete Correction Crème so I was eager to try some of Alterna’s other products from the Caviar line. The brand sent over some of the staples and another favorite quickly emerged:  Alterna Haircare Caviar Repair Multi-Vitamin Heat Protection Spray

I have been focusing on protecting my hair from heat lately. I don’t use hot tools, but I have learned that even a hair drying can inflict damage. This vitamin spray protects strands up to 450°F. What I love even more is the restored hydration, vibrancy and elasticity. Marine botanicals deliver moisture and smell delish. My hair is left smooth and with a healthy shine. And smells great too.

Free of Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, Synthetic Color, Paraffins, Gluten, DEA/TEA, Phthalates, Mineral Oil & Petrolatum. Available at Sephora.

glam sandals on belle belle beauty

These travel photos are breathtaking.

I ordered this dress for an event on Friday.

So many foreign beauty items you can find stateside.

I admit I am a Bachelor Nation fan, and I loved this article about Nick (the new bachelor) and his age – he is one year younger than me. Will be nice to see a thirty-something in the hot seat!

Loved this as a grammar nerd.

These extreme dining spots is giving me wanderlust.
