Hi, My name is Jamee and I am a beauty product junkie.
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (which you should of course! Ha!), you might have picked up on my newfound obsession with makeup!
I think its likely that this new fascination stems from some of the self-consciousness I’ve been dealing with (makeup always fits no matter what your size) as well as having the opportunity to explore some new interests. I had always joked about going back to school for hair or makeup so who knows, maybe its a new calling 🙂
It was a happy mail weekend so I got some new makeup to play with! I have always tended to go for a darker eyeshadow look so I want to try something different and picked out some new colors for Spring! This is the new palette from BH Cosmetics called Forever Nude (ordered through Hautelook for a steal):
This palette contains six eye shadows, a highlighter, two cheek colors, and two lip colors! I have read good things but haven’t tried out this brand before so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
A brand that I have recently discovered and have loved is ELF (which stands for Eyes Lips Face). This brand offers products at extremely affordable prices (most products run between $1-$6). You would think it would mean the products were crap but the quality is awesome! Of course there are a product here or there that stinks but overall, I have yet to try a product that I really hated. ELF sells at Target and Walgreens (and likely some other drugstores) but I do most of my shopping online for two reasons: 1) I live in the sticks and 2) Their online sales are fantastic (currently all best seller and new products are 50% off). At the last sale, I picked up some of their Baked line to try out:
Top Left to Right: Peachy Cheeky, Twinkle Pink (from Studio line, not baked), Rich Rose
Bottom Left to Right: Toasted, Enchanted, Burnt Plum, and Bark
I haven’t had a chance to play with them yet but from swatching the colors when they came in, I am very excited to try them out! It is currently in the 70s here in my part of NC today so I am beyond ready for warmer weather and new styles and makeup for Spring!
So I have two questions: 1) would you be interested in reading more makeup/style posts? and 2) are there any products or trends you looking forward to try out this Spring?
*Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. All products were purchased on my own. The Hautelook link is a referral link but thats all. Just want to keep it real y’all 🙂

Oh man. I have used the same brand of makeup for years. This looks so dreamy. Need to find something for aging skin for sure Thanks for sharing.
I LOVE elf. Right now, I’m using their acne fighting foundation (highly recommend!), HD powder (so much cheaper than anyone elses, and you get a gigantic container), shimmer gray eyeliner, black eyeliner, mascara, and powder foundation. Not to mention several of their nail polishes, and make up brushes.
I’m so behind – I haven’t even looked into the new colors or trends for spring! It’s been so warm here though, today would be a good day to get ready for it!
I would LOVE more makeup/style posts, especially #spoonie friendly tips 🙂 Maybe even some of your own tutorial videos?
