August Beauty Favorites 2014



Hey guys, since the end of August is here it’s time for another monthly favorites! Before I start rambling on about my favorites, I was lucky enough to contribute to a fashion blog called Fashion Nexus and her post on the Best Dressed from the VMA’s went up today. It would mean so much if you went and checked her blog out at Now let’s get into the favorites!! 



Tarte came out with a NEW palette for Fall called Rainforest After Dark. I have been obsessed with this!! I love popping the deep brown eyeshadow in the outer corner and blending it into the crease. Everything in the palette blends out with no problem and just glides on. Perfect for traveling!!



Mascara is one of those products that I can’t leave the house without. So it’s fair to say that I have tried quiet a few mascaras throughout my beauty journey and The Falsies from Maybelline is my new favorite! I love the curved wand because it adds a lot of volume to my lashes without even curling them. The best part is that this mascara is drugstore which means it’s under $8.IMG_2463In the summer I love dewy skin and the Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation gives you that look. It’s natural coverage perfect for a summer night out. I love applying this foundation with a damp sponge, the one I have been using is the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. Definitely a must have going into fall time.  



My last makeup favorite is also from Maybelline. It’s their new Baby Lips Crystal collection. These lip balms add moisture to  your lips and also a touch of shine. I love them so much that I may have bought 4 out of the 6 colors!! 



My hair favorite of the month has been the John Frieda Frizz Ease Flat Iron Spray. This spray is like a miracle worker!! It keeps my hair straight for at least 3 days longer then if I didn’t use it. Normally I spray this in my hair before I blow dry it out. If you have thick, curly hair like me then you definitely need this in your life!!IMG_2451 In my skincare I usually keep it the same and don’t change it but recently I’ve found a new discovery. The Garnier Skin Renew Eye Roller, it feels amazing underneath your eyes. The best part of this product is thats it’s cold so in the morning it really wakes you up. If you liked this monthly favorites don’t forget to go check out my old blog, to read all my other monthly favorites and I’ll talk to you soon!! 


Welcome to my new site!

IMG_1680Hi guys, welcome to my new blog!! You might know me from my original beauty blog and are possibly wondering why I made the switch. After I started my blog in March 2014 on Blogger I then discovered WordPress. After I found WordPress I started finding out that a ton of beauty bloggers like Allison Anderson are on there and I love her blog design.  So one day I decided to look in depth into it and I loved it 10X more. The biggest difference I find is that you can personalize it more. Only thing that took me a little bit to figure out was the different setup. is going to stay exactly the same but I just won’t be posting on there any more.

What can you expect from the new site? The main difference is that I’m going to be posting a lot more!! I really want to start doing more lifestyle and fashion posts on my blog too. But don’t get me wrong I’m still going to be doing a ton of makeup posts.

Overall I am #excited about my new blog and I hope you like it as well. If you have any ideas on different kinds of blog posts you want me to do leave a comment and one day you might see a post about it! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @beautychatwithlexi.
