Reviewing Too Faced’s Pretty Rebel Palette + Better Than Sex Mascara [In Our Makeup Bag]

Too Faced's Fall offerings are quite bold; a palette featuring "the deepest jewel tones, the most bad ass metallics and one scene-stealing pink" and a mascara with the word "sex" in the name.

Tweezerman Will Help You Get Your Best Brows [In Our Makeup Bag]

Eyebrows are an often neglected facial feature, which is unfortunate because they really do frame your face. I admit, I used to ignore my brows save for a weekly pluck, but now happily groom them each day.

Reviewing Clarins’ Blush Prodige [In Our Makeup Bag]

We haven't seen a blush in Makeup Bag in far too long! Honestly, I have a huge blush collection and they are not something I pick up very often. However, I was extremely excited to try Clarins Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Color in 02 Soft Peach, as I'm a massive Clarins fan.

Reviewing Bliss’ “The ‘Bod’ Squad” Set [In Our Makeup Bag]

Bliss originated as a spa in NYC and has since expanded into an uber popular skincare brand. Their classics are cult faves and this amazing value of a kit combines four of those classics: lemon+sage body butter, lemon+sage body scrub, Fatgirlslim and high intensity hand cream. Best of all? It's only $50 right now and a $115 value!

Get Luxe Lips with Burberry Lip Velvet [In Our Makeup Bag]

Oh Burberry, how I love thee. Seriously, Burberry is probably my #1 luxury brand. When they announced a new, matte lip color formula, Lip Velvet, I was beyond excited! I decided to go for a classic red that was getting all sorts of hype in the blogosphere, Military Red.

Reviewing the Burberry Complete Eye Palette [In Our Makeup Bag]

Burberry eyeshadows are something of legend in beauty circles. The creamiest, most pigmented and blendable shadows some say! I've never indulged in one, but was excited to hear that they were finally making eyeshadows palettes.

Haus of Gloi is my absolute favorite bath and body brand! They're an indie company run by husband and wife team, Matt and Britton, and they make amazing body products like scrubs and butters.

Reviewing Urban Decay's "The Vice Palette" [In Our Makeup Bag]

When I opened this palette, I almost started drooling (sorry for the visual). It's a great range of shades; lots of my fave, neutrals, but a good amount of fun, bright colors to add pop!

In Our Makeup Bag: Perricone No Concealer Concealer

If I were to be stranded on a deserted island, with only one item of makeup with me, do you know what it would be? Concealer! Okay, let's not nit-pick about the fact that no one really needs concealer, let alone makeup, on a deserted island, but you get my drift.

theBalm "Balm Jovi" Palette [In Our Makeup Bag]

Palettes, especially ones that combine products, are always fun to use! theBalm has produced some of my favorite palettes thus far (anyone remember last year's Muppet palette?), so I was super excited to see their newest venture, the Balm Jovi Rockstar Face Palette.
