I LOVE LANVIN (more than I love myself.)

This year Lanvin didn't cease to amazing any of us with their LANVIN X HM collection. I was basically in love the second I saw it and I quickly made my way over to see what the fuss was about. I didn't really buy anything, however, because it felt too cheap to me. H&M has been known to fall apart and suck. I left the store without anything and it pains me to say I regret it. Natalie Portman was seen rocking the dress I almost bought. Damn..

I made a YouTube video using the Lanvin lookbook because I have been that infatuated, seriously.  

but anyways, enough about me, the Lanvin website itself is making me lose my shit right now. Feast your eyes upon beautiful Paris couture. I am buying Rosetta Stone in French so I can move and be around these people all the time. I can dream, right?


I am absolutely going insane over these shoes. I am really, really amazon tall (5'9) and flats are my bff.


The photo on the cover makes me want to cry. I love it so much!


These are a gem, especially if you love to entertain. Your posh friends will definitely adore these (and so will kids!)


I absolutely love this, even though I most likely won't create a blonde child. Still adorable!



THIS IS SO AMAZING! She is from the lookbook. I love this and it's porcelain!


if not, you might not have a pulse (or fashion sense.)

Hope this helps!

YSL Pur Couture #13 Le Orange Swatch and Review!

I saw my girl Kourtney Kardashian on George Lopez (FOR A SECOND. I HATE HIM.) and couldn't help but notice her lips. They were pretty red, but not the usual blueish reds that none of us dark haired, medium skinned girls can pull off. This is a more sunny orange red, and it really had me thinking if $30 was worth a desperate attempt to find a red I like?? (gasp) so I voted yes and I took the plunge.

Pretty packaging but it really attracts fingerprints!

A little dark, forgive me.

Upon first opening of this lipstick tube I was in love. This formulation smells better than anything I've ever smelled before. If this scent is the same as any YSL parfum I want it NOW. This lipstick is very very pigmented and I used my finger in fear that I would look absolutely crazy. All in all, this color is worth the money and I'm looking into buying #17 and #6 as well.

YSL Pur Couture #13 Le Orange

I'll do a swatch on my hand using the lipstick straight from the tube, not my finger for true color :)

YSL Pur Couture #13 Le Orange

I love this purchase and feel like a whole tube will last the rest of my life. My boyfriend has tried to steal the tube to just smell it so I suggest buying this and falling in love just like I did.. even if you're usually shy to reds like me. Hope this helps!


Nars lipstick in Niagra, Dolce Vita and Love Devotion Swatches!

Sorry I've been so M.I.A. I've been busy searching and purchasing Christmas presents! I really love the holidays and I also love buying people things. I've found some amazing gifts for my boyfriend on and so check that out if you need to shop for a guy! Ok I'll stop rambling!

I love these colors and I want you to as well.

First is Niagra. I saw this swatch online and instantly fell in love. I love any pink lipstick and I love orange lipstick as well so the fact that this is a hybrid makes me SO happy! It looks like a coral in the tube and it is pretty true to color, except a little more pink on my lips. I love this with my medium skintone and a coral blush. Love love love!

Next is Love Devotion. I saw this lipstick on actress Blake Lively and I fell in love. It's a very sheer orange. If you have a good lip color to begin with this just softens it and gives a subtle nude look. I adore this shade and am happy with it, but I feel it's a more summery shade. Beautiful none the less and I got it during a sale! I love you!

Last but not least is Dolce Vita. This color is always praised and I wanted to know why so I purchased it. In the tube it's a very brown ugly color but on your lips it's beautiful! I think this should be owned by every girl. It's very versatile and I think it's definitely worth a try ladies!

Now here are all of the swatches on my hand :)

I now own 6 Nars lipsticks and I love them all. I hope this post helps!

Christmas Wishlist

I buy most things I want for myself. I rarely ask anyone for a gift, even if it is my birthday or Christmas. I have compiled a list of things I want (specifically from my boyfriend) so let me know what you think.

I want to make passionate love to this Louis Vuitton. Again and again and again, etc...

Anna Sui hairbrush.. I am infatuated with this.

Anna Sui Mirror.. absolutely stunning!

Wildfox Couture S'il Vous Plait hoodie.. reminds me of my mother!

Love this smell SO MUCH! Givenchy Play gift set! (Like I really need another perfume)

Tarina Tarantino Brush Revolution Set.. I WANT IT SO BAD! How Fuschia...

Tarina Tarantino Gold Shimmer Dust.. looks orgasmic on anyone. I highly suggest this.

Lollia In Love Candle <3


I hope you ladies feel inspired by my Christmas Wishlist.
I hope I receive the Louis bag, that's my #1!


Feeling Candylicious?

I sort of can't get over candy jars. I really want my whole apartment to be covered in glorious glass candy jars but my boyfriend isn't into that -sigh-. I took some pictures of my recent obsession - my pink glass candy jar. It's my first of many beautiful glass jars that I bought some old school candy for. I hope to receive these as gifts, so if any of my friends see them on sale, let me know. Hope this inspires you.

I might be trying to relive my childhood, so what?!

DIOR 5 Couleurs 970 Stylish Move Swatches!

I love love love love LOVE DIOR shadows. They are a dream to apply; so smooth and silky. This eyeshadow compact is by far my absolute favorite eyeshadow purchase. I love purple eyeshadow and this is great.


These shadows are SO BEAUTIFUL. They are pretty true to palette. The only color I don't get much use out of is the upper left color. That specific color doesn't show up very well on my skintone. The purple is the best purple I have ever used in my lifetime and I think this compact will be a permanent staple in my makeup collection. I highly recommend you splurge on this $58 compact sooner than later. 

Hope this helps! Also, have a happy Thanksgiving! My 22nd birthday is friday so I will be (hopefully) getting some good stuff.

NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Cordura and Wicked Swatches!

I am a NARSaholic obviously and I don't know how I didn't own Cordura before. I purchased Wicked on a $10 sale and am happy I did. Nars quality is unmatched, check it out!

Cordura is something that every brunette needs to own. It's gorgeous, complimentary and buildable (just like all Nars shadows I must say.) These chocolate browns are treats for my eyes and I treasure this compact.

(sorry it's darker) Cordura Swatch

Wicked is a great color for $10. It's a white frost highlight and a lime yellow metallic color. I really enjoy this and am planning on using them as bases. This is a great deal! Go grab it if it's still available on!

NARS Wicked

Overall, I am super happy with my purchases. I suggest you go grab these :)
hope this helps!


Lancome Juicy Tubes in Miracle Swatch!

I have liked this lip gloss since I saw it on Mean Girls back in 2005. That movie seemed to always have a character applying these (Gretchen mostly.) Anyways, I was fairly young and pretty unfamiliar with Lancome so I never purchased. I did like how sparkly but natural these looked. I bought this over the weekend and am loving it, even though I'm 6 years late..


This gloss is super thick. The gloss is sticky and not really my favorite for a night with the boyfriend. I do like how it feels on my lips although it's not my favorite. I obviously prefer Dior lipgloss over all. I can't help it!


Swatch on my hand :)

Overall I don't know if I love this, but I do like it. The flavor is subtle but is almost florally. Not a fan of that! Hope this helps!

NARS Eyeshadow in Strada Swatches!

I love Nars. I would work there if I could so I could possibly save money on my ridiculous obsession. I love natural eyes (even eyeliner is too much for me sometimes) but sometimes you need to use some eyeshadow, right? I have really green eyes, so purple is a go to color for me. This is the best. purple. ever.

Nars eyeshadow in Strada (please excuse the yellowish light)

This purple is really light and innocent at first. It is overwhelmed with sparkles that are absolutely gorgeous; they almost look melted right into the pigments themselves. I am a sucker for sparkles and this eyeshadow makes me die every time I open it. I highly suggest this if you have green eyes or just want a fun night time look.

Nars eyeshadow in Strada - how gorgeous???

NARS Strada swatch on my hand :)

Hope this helps!
