Hey everyone! Beautybombbb is now not only just on Tumblr but WordPress too! Make sure to follow me there as well to see all the new features coming in 2013!
Jonathan Adler x Bare Essentials
Who wouldn’t want their makeup interior designed. Adler teamed up with Bare Essentials to create special edition packaging to hold the award winning cult favorite foundation. The fun design comes in five colors and runs for $60 at Sephora. Not only does it come with foundation but a patterned handi buki brush. The only downside? They’re all sold out. Time to take to ebay beautybombbbers.

My new favies from the butterLondon Spring collection. Having the winter blues is taking on a whole new meaning right now hehe.
Who needs flowers for Valentine’s Day when you can have NARS? Their Spring collection debuts a range of bright and beautiful hues that will steal the color spotlight from any bouquet. Boyfriends and husbands take note.
As a college girl on a budget, you all know I’m always trying to find less expensive drugstore products to compliment my more expensive cosmetics. Elf has always been one of those go-to quality for less drugstore brands but I personally hadn’t experimented with it too much. That had to change. Yesterday at Target, I picked up these two products to try and replace ones I was running out of at home.
The elf tinted moisturizer is a really nice everyday alternative to my Naked Skin foundation that I’ve been using. The tinted moisturizer gives a great coverage which rivals that of a regular light/medium coverage foundation. It goes on smooth and leaves my skin naturally dewy but not overly shiny. The only downside, the Naked Skin has more skin enriching ingredients and feels more moisturizing. Although I really like this product, I’m not replacing my Naked Skin permanently. I’m going to use the elf for everyday and Naked Skin for a slightly more flawless finish on special occasions. But for $3 can I really complain?
The brow powder/wax is really similar to my ones from Benefit and NYX. I thought I’d be disappointed with no clear wax but it really wasn’t needed. It stays on well and even the brush inside is well made. Again, for $3 this is definitely a save over splurge.
Nothin’ wrong with yellow nails in the winter! A beacon of sunshine since MD finally got some today after a week of rain! Thanks Julep!
Today’s nail color is “Anise” by Dolce & Gabbana
Beautiful nails! What colors have you all been wearing to spice up the dreary winter months?
With a new year upon us, it seems everyone is vowing to eat a clean diet and exercise their booties off! While people are fanatic about what they are putting into their bodies, why aren’t they making resolutions about what they are putting on it? The skin is the largest organ on the human body and the visible one. Taking care of it is just as important as taking care of yourself internally. The newest launch by Juice Beauty makes taking care of your skin way more simple in this new year.
The Juice Beauty CC cream is a brand new launch, part of the company’s Stem Cellular Repair line. For those of you who aren’t familiar with what a CC cream is, let me break it down. CC’s are color or complexion correcting balms. They are a little bit more heavy duty than the popular BB creams and focus on more serious skincare concerns such as anti aging and dark spots. Juice’s take on this new trend is by far my favorite one that I’ve sampled, not to mention it is all natural. It provides 12 different skincare benefits that seem just to good to be true. But believe me, it actually does everything it says it’s going to!
Taken straight from juicebeauty.com, the CC cream,
• “Repairs damage
• Evens skin tone & texture
• Firms & improves elasticity
• Reduces fine lines & wrinkles
• Creates a radiant, glowing complexion

New Smashbox gloss and lipstick colors. Bright pinks and reds are reminding us that Valentine’s day is right around the corner!
This week’s nails. I thought they looked kind of galaxy-ish even though they’re supposed to look like marble. What can I say, I’m creative.
Just reminding everyone, the new Urban Decay Beauty Balm launches today on urbandecay.com. For those of you who aren’t familiar with beauty balms they are a fusion of skincare and makeup that hydrate, prime, perfect, and protect. I’m already loving the Naked foundation so I can’t wait to try this lighter weight addition. I feel like it will be perfect for summer!Picture courtesy of urbandecay’s instagram.
