I want to share with you all my latest jewelry pieces from ShopLately.Com!
Majority of the pieces in this haul are from the seller, Glint & Gleam. Glint & Gleam has a wide selection of beautiful pieces that fit my style and therefore, has become my most favorite seller on ShopLately!
The gorgeous Ice Princess Earrings are made of gold-tone metal and features a stunning dangle design, accented with sparkling clear rhinestones. These earrings have a 3” drop and are ultra lightweight, and are ideal for those special occasions!
Another pair of glamorous, yet, whimsical earrings are the Olympian Frost Earrings. These earrings have a unique, ornate design, crafted in gold plating and are completed with clear and white shimmering rhinestones.
These next pair of earrings are my favorite in this haul! I’m delightfully overwhelmed with their gorgeous jeweled design and uniqueness! The amazing Speak Easy Spectacle Earrings are constructed with smooth resin baubles, varicolored jewels, and dangling spikes! These statement earrings are one-of-a-kind beauties that will definitely grab attention, and are surprisingly very weightless!
One out of two pairs of gold stud earrings in this haul are the adorable Flirty Flower Studs from Glint & Gleam! Each gold plated stud earring features a large clear rhinestone in the center with small stones trimming the outer edge for a sweet and feminine finish.
The last pair of earrings are from the seller, Jennifer & Soo. The Always A Princess Earrings are dainty and romantic, gold-tone earrings that features a filigree setting and glistening light pink rhinestones. I adore these vintage inspired earrings!
I am wearing the Speak Easy Spectacle Earrings in the photos. I tried to capture photos of what the earrings looked like when worn but failed miserably. I couldn’t get a decent angle of the earrings on me, so I gave up, but trust me, these earrings are absolutely breathtaking!

Nothing screams ‘holiday’ like bold, red lips or golden shimmer eyes, so I paired the two together to create this fun and sparkly, holiday glam makeup look featuring my beautiful false eyelashes from Pezzetta Cosmetics!
Whether it’s Christmas or New Year’s, sparkle is a must for me during the holiday season!
Here is the list of products used for this look:
- Hard Candy Heavy Duty Glamoflauge Concealer in Medium - Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 240 - Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent - N.Y.C. Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny - E.L.F. Studio Blush in Twinkle Pink
- Billion Dollar Brows Brow Powder in Taupe - Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara
- Itay Mineral Cosmetics Eye Primer - Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Bold Gold - NYX Cosmetics Single Eyeshadows in Daisy, Dark Brown, and Skin Tight - Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Single in Vanilla - Itay Mineral Cosmetics Glitter Powder in Gold - Black Radiance Continuous Creme Eyeliner in Classic Black - Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara
I’m utterly blown away by the ridiculously high pigmentation, smooth consistency, and moisturizing finish of these lipsticks!
I demoed the lipsticks by applying concealer on my lips first to cover up the natural pigmentation of my lips, and didn’t use any lip liners or lip glosses! The lipsticks applied like butter, depositing vibrant, true-to-color payoff!
“Cotton Candy" is a beautiful, bright, matte pink color with a creamy finish. This lipstick is definitely a show-stopping shade that will undeniably get attention! It’s one of the brightest pink lipsticks that I have in my collection and I’m obsessed with it!
“Lola" is a warm toned, matte red lipstick with opaque color coverage. It applies evenly and smoothly, and is very long lasting! It’s such a beautiful red shade!
Madame Mink is an upcoming mink fur eyelash line that is based in Canada. The company is currently preparing for their website launch, which will include eleven pairs of beautiful, versatile and unique mink eyelashes! I was given the opportunity to try out two pairs of mink eyelashes before they became available on the website!
Mink eyelashes from Madame Mink are hand-crafted and are 100% cruelty-free! The mink furs are collected through shedding or brushing, and are sterilized to be hypoallergenic! Mink eyelashes are extremely lightweight, natural looking, and can be reused up to twenty-five times with proper care!
I am wearing the “Foxy” mink eyelashes in the photos. These lashes are super long, thick, and voluminous! I love how dramatic these lashes are, yet, they’re completely weightless!
The other featured pair are the “Prima Donna” mink eyelashes, which has a beautiful criss-cross pattern that gives depth and the perfect amount of length for a very natural looking result!
Yes, I’m back with another ShopLately.Com jewelry haul! These stunning and sparkly jewels were accumulated over the last few weeks and are some of my current favorites!
The first piece is a beautifully detailed statement necklace that features an antique gold chain with clusters of clear rhinestones. This necklace lays nicely on the chest, has a sturdy lobster clasp, and is about 20” in length with a 2” extender. The Bling Crown Necklace by Lily Wang is crafted with beauty and elegance that is indisputable!
The Paradise Shimmer Earrings from Glint & Gleam are one of my favorite pieces yet! These stunning earrings feature a lovely drop design with beautiful iridescent and multicolored rhinestones, completed in gold plating. They’re extremely lightweight with a drop of approximately 2.5”.
I adore elegant, dangle earrings and these varicolored earrings are so unique and exquisite!
The next pair of earrings were on my to-get list for a while, but I always hesitated because the earrings looked quite bulky and intimidating in the photos on the website. I gave in recently and got the Classic Crystal Dangle Earrings because I just couldn’t resist these polished beauties anymore!
The Classic Crystal Dangle Earrings from Lily Wang are so beautiful in reality, and they’re not bulky like in the photos at all! These vintage gold earrings are extremely well crafted with clear rhinestones and tiny, delicate crystals! The earrings have a 2” drop and are medium weight, and are another one of my favorites!
Moving on to, yet, another pair of gorgeous drop earrings, the Precious Fortunes Earrings by Glint & Gleam features a rhinestone studded hook with a beautiful blue teardrop gem, surrounded by a burst of glistening clear rhinestones!
The last pair of earrings are simple, yet alluring. Glint & Gleam’s My Moon Earrings are a pair of gold tone earrings, featuring a circular drop design with gorgeous clear and black rhinestones.

The holidays are right around the corner and I wanted to create a simple, yet elegant makeup look to share with you all! For this holiday makeup look, I used all products from ELES Cosmetics, one of my favorite Australian makeup brands!
I kept my eyes very neutral and played up my cheeks and lips for this look! For once, I am not wearing any contacts or false eyelashes—-I’ve been really into the subtle and “natural” look, so this look is definitely ideal for those who prefer simplicity with a touch of glam!
For my eyes, I used myCreative Colour System compact, which is a customizable, magnetic, trio eyeshadow compact. I filled the compact with all matte mineral eyeshadow inserts from a selection of thirty-four colors with either shimmer or matte finishes!
Left to Right : Cashmere, Antique White, and Twig
I began by applying the vanilla eyeshadow called “Antique White” all over my eyelids. Then, I applied “Cashmere”, which is a warm light brown color, on the outer corners of my eyes, blending the brown eyeshadow just above the crease. I applied the dark drown shade called “Twig” on the outer v to add depth and definition to my eyes. I used a darker brown eyeshadow to line my eyes and create a winged out eyeliner, and used “Twig” to line my bottom lash lines. I finished off by applying mascara to the top and bottom lashes!
On my cheeks, I am wearing ELES Cosmetics’ new Mixed Berries Mineral Blush, which is a gorgeous, deep berry shade with a matte finish. I love the satin-like formula of these mineral blushes and how smooth their texture is, and the effortless application that they give! The “Mixed Berries” blush, specifically, is extremely pigmented, so a little goes a long way!
For a touch of luminosity, I applied the Colour Tides Mineral Shimmering Powder in “Flush of Pink” on top of my cheekbones to give my cheeks a healthy glow! This pink toned highlighter consists of a mixture of gorgeous, shimmering shades that blend beautifully together to give a soft and flushed finish to the skin!
Nothing screams holiday like a red or berry lipstick! If a red lipstick is too intimidating for you, opt for a light berry lipstick instead! It’s not as vibrant as a red lipstick, but is just as lovely!
To complete this makeup look, my lipstick of choice was the Micro Bubble Lipstick in “Micro Heather”! The Micro Bubble Lipsticks are known for their rich and creamy color, and hydrating formula! “Micro Heather” is a lovely berry shade with finely milled shimmers. This lipstick has excellent color payoff, consistency, and lasting power!
I hope you all enjoyed this super simple holiday makeup look! I plan on recreating this look for my family gatherings during Christmas! How are you going to dress up your lips for this holiday season?!

I’m back with another lash review for you all and this time, it’s from a company called Pezzetta Cosmetics! Established in 2011 by a professional makeup artist, Pezzetta Cosmetics’ mission is to provide beautiful, high quality, human hair false eyelashes, while inspiring women to be confident in their own skin!
Pezzetta Cosmetics' lash collection currently includes five, breathtaking lash styles from natural to ultra dramatic! I had the lovely opportunity of trying out three of the lashes from the collection!
The first pair of falsies are called Center Stage. These lashes have an invisible band and a super sultry flare that intensifies and adds depth to the eyes to give a high-drama appeal!
The next pair are wispy strip lashes called Follow Your Dreams. I adore the whimsical effect of these lashes and how natural looking they are! The mixture of short, medium, and long strands blend beautifully into the natural lashes, giving a beautiful doll-like look!
The last pair of false eyelashes are bold, dramatic, and daring! The Paparazzi lashes, like its name, are definitely attention grabbing lashes! Guarantee to turn heads, these full and irresistible lashes are made with human hair and are very lightweight!
I am wearing the “Center Stage” lashes in the photos. I absolutely love how these lashes wing out at the ends, accentuating my eyes! These lashes are one of my favorite pairs—-they’re sultry, natural, lightweight, and very affordable!
Ulta recently sent me a 20% off coupon for being a beauty member and I couldn’t resist, so I ordered a few things from their website!
I took advantage of the promotional offer to order the Stila eyeshadow palette that I’ve always had my eyes on since Ulta’s coupons are usually excluded from prestige cosmetics brands (the coupon applied to the Stila palette this time)!
I also took the opportunity to stock up on some more NYX Cosmetics (one of my favorite brands) and because I wanted to get the free shipping offer!
I ordered three NYX Single Eyeshadows (Mellow Yellow, Hot Orange, and Sensual) and one Nude Matte Eyeshadow (In The Buff). All four eyeshadows are currently on sale on the Ulta website for $2.49 each!
I got two new NYX Love in Paris Eyeshadow Palettes in “Parisian Chic” and “Be Our Guest Maurice”. The Love in Paris Collection comes with twelve seductive palettes featuring nine richly pigmented shades in each compact. I want to own all twelve palettes from this collection! Each palette retails for $10 and I bought both palettes on sale for $5.99 each!
Parisian Chic (left) : Shimmery and matte neutrals
Be Our Guest Maurice (right) : Shimmery purples, beiges, black and white
I also ordered Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Lipstick from the Kate Moss Collection in #101, which is a matte baby pink shade.
And lastly, the reason for my purchase in the first place is the Stila In the Know Eyeshadow Palette. I always find myself being captivated towards matte products and neutral palettes, so the In The Know eyeshadow palette was definitely an item that I wanted in my makeup collection!
Stila’s In The Know Eyeshadow Palette contains ten beautiful matte shades and an exclusive Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in “Halfmoon”, a matte charcoal grey shade.
The only thing that I don’t like about this eyeshadow palette is the cardboard packaging. This type of packaging feels flimsy to me and they get dirty and damage very quickly, but for ten, nicely sized, high quality eyeshadows for $39, I can overlook the dinky packaging.
Shades (Top Row):
Air - matte beige
Wind - soft matte peach
Desert - soft matte tan with warm undertones
Clay - matte warm light brown
Earth - deep matte chocolate brown
Shades (Bottom Row):
Driftwood - mid tone brown
Fire - matte brick
Rain - matte brown
Smoke - matte charcoal grey
Ebony - matte black
I hope you all enjoyed this post!

Cirque is an artisanal line of hand-blended nail polish made in New York. The name Cirque, meaning ring or circle, represents the color wheel and the endless color possibilities in the continuum. Creator, Annie Pham, sought to develop colors that transcend those of conventional brands by experimenting with unique pigments and raw materials. Cirque nail polish is 3-free, which means it does not contain toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate.
The new Alchemy Collection consists of ten, shimmer infused nail colors, inspired by occultism and medieval experiments.
"This 10-color arrangement showcases the magic and mysticism behind the transformation process with colors ranging from saturated yellow gold to shadowy grays to a geometric-inspired glitter topper."

Annie kindly sent me five of the ten colors from the Alchemy Collection to review for you all! With its magical theme and holographic/sparkling pigments, this collection at first glance captivated me instantly! The assortment of dark and glittery colors in this collection are also perfect for this fall season!
Left to Right : Arcane Fire, Mink, Stella, Lichen, and Ica Valley.
Arcane Fire A deep ruby red with multi-faceted gold sparks
Mink A chocolate brown with a rainbow holographic finish
Stella A romantic rose gold micro-glitter
Lichen A golden olive that shifts to grassy green at different angles
Ica Valley A golden beige micro-glitter mimicking sand dunes, only sparklier
For the two glitter polishes, I applied one coat, and for the other polishes, I applied two coats. These Cirque polishes are absolutely stunning—-they apply smoothly and give great color payoff with just two coats of polish!
My favorite out of the five polishes is Arcane Fire!
