New BB Creams!

Just like every makeup love out there, I too was extremely excited to hear that Maybelline and L’oreal developed their own versions of BB creams. As you all know, I am a big fan of It’s Judy Time and she happened to have a very useful and informational review of BOTH products. Therefore, I wanted to share it with you all to get a better look at what they both have to offer.

I hope this helps you make your choice when choosing which BB cream will work for you! The graph below will give you an easy overview of what I thought were the biggest differences according to Judy’s review.

I have yet to try out any of these BB creams since I didn’t have such a great experience with the Garnier version, therefore I wanted to do some intense research before I made the leap a purchase a new one. I hope this helps you all out too.

Below are some more reviews that I have found helpful throughout my research. Hopefully I will have a review soon of my experience with one of these products!

Thank you all for reading my blog and I hope to see some comments below with your thoughts.

What’s in my travel makeup bag!

This weekend I’m in Orlando to see my boyfriend and as I was packing I thought about being really good with the amount of makeup I took! On this particular trip, I was only taking a carry on just because I didn’t want to trot around with a huge bag for just one weekend. I went light on my makeup bag with which is pretty impressive and I’m pretty happy with myself! I also knew that I would go shopping so downsizing the amount of clothes wasn’t that hard.

In this post, I will share with you all what I take in my makeup bag for one weekend.

This may look like a long list but it really isn’t! I was also able to fit it all in this cute Zebra and Pink bag from Marshalls! Of course I carry this with my on the plane because I’m always scared about something breaking if I check it in or even put it up with my carry on.

Is this a good list or should I have taken less? Tell me about how you all travel!
