I tend to wear a lot of basics and neutrals in my wardrobe. It's cost effective, and there just aren't too many occasions that I need to wear something super trendy. I find that statement earrings are a great way to update a classic piece to show your personality! Which pair is your favorite?
Remy + Rose Boutique in St. Louis, MO Try On Session: Summer to Fall Transition
I recently filmed a try-on session for my Instagram Story, and snapped a few photos to share here on the blog. I went to Remy + Rose Boutique located in St. Louis, MO with the goal of putting together outfits for that summer to fall transition that is upon us. I think a lot of these outfits could transition by switching out the sandals for booties, and layering a jacket for chilly nights.
If you couldn't already tell that I loved them, I came home with those ripped Cello jeans--they fit like a glove without any awkward gapping in the back. I also took home the black Hi-Lo top because it made me feel like Beyonce! That olive green bralette and ivory sweater are on my wishlist, and I have that felt hat in a dark gray from the boutique.
Remy + Rose Boutique also has an online store that you can shop here if you are not local to St. Louis. They are located inside of All For You MedSpa. I have posted a few other blogs about Remy + Rose Boutique here and here. Have you shopped at Remy + Rose Boutique yet? My followers can use the code FANCY15 to save 15% on their purchases.
Review of Revlon Lip Products
I recently received three Revlon lip products (gifted) to review including a lip gloss, lip liner and a lip polish. One product was an obvious winner and one an absolute fail! Keep on reading if you are interested in my experience with these Revlon lip products.
Revlon Ultra HD Vinyl Lip Polish: https://shopstyle.it/l/6NjW
Revlon’s Ultra HD Vinyl Lip Polish gives you lacquered lips in one swipe, is infused with Vitamin E and Shea butter, and has a precise applicator for smooth application.
I received the shade Berry Blissed, an ultra shiny berry shade perfect for fall! I really liked that this product felt nourishing and was easy to apply. This delivered a high shine vinyl finish that makes for a great photo! My only concern with such a bold and moisturizing product is that it will move--and it did ever so slightly into the corners of my mouth with just talking. I would not recommend wearing this product in a deep shade if you are attending an event where there is eating and drinking involved. It will end up all of your glass and your face! If you are going to brave this scenario, then I recommend that you bring a mirrored compact and the Ultra HD Vinyl Lip Polish for touchups.
Revlon Super Lustrous The Gloss: https://shopstyle.it/l/6Nmw
Revlon Super Lustrous The Gloss provides glossy color, non-stick shine, and a new formula with agave for moisturized lips.
I received the shade Rose Quartz, which is a glossy holographic pink. I loved the packaging as soon as I saw it. It has a very high-end vibe with the font and gold lettering. This has the biggest wand/doe foot applicator I have ever seen on a lip product. This is apparently called a reservoir tip and was designed to saturate the lips with color. Revlon claims that this Super Lustrous Lipgloss is not sticky or tacky, but I don't 100% agree. While I did not find this lip gloss to be sticky, I did find that it had a slight tackiness to it--the kind that means the gloss will be on your lips for awhile. In lipglosses, I always tend to lean toward these lighter shades due to ease of application and the ability to reapply on the go without much afterthought.
Revlon Colorstay Lip Liner: https://shopstyle.it/l/6Nmx
Revlon’s ColorStay Longwear Lip Liner gives you flawless application with color that applies evenly, defines lips, and lasts all day.
I will start by saying that maybe I received a bad liner. Maybe. It was awful! It immediately broke and then broke inside of the included sharpener when I tried to fix it. I gave up and applied it to my lips with it's flat top, only for it to continue to crumble onto my lips. I have never seen anything like it. There used to be a Revlon liner that was my holy grail, and it was nothing like this one! I received the shade Wine and it was recommended that I pair it with mauve & berry shade lipsticks, so I applied it underneath the Berry Blissed Ultra HD Vinyl Lip Polish.
I strongly encourage you to check out my First Impressions video on these three Revlon lip products. Some of my favorite videos are first impressions because it is a completely raw review. Have you tried any of these Revlon lip products?
I’ve been using this product for a couple weeks now, so here is my review! This product is a little difficult to get out of the pan, I usually have to rub my brush across it a few times to pick up any powder. This is a finishing powder, so it is not meant to set makeup or add any additional coverage. It has a slight peach tint and very light shimmer, almost like a veil. I do feel like it blurs imperfections , pores and light texture. If you have dry patches or heavy texture, this product may not be for you. I would apply sparingly, again as it is a finishing powder and should be applied as your final step.
This does leave a slight peachy/pink tint so depending on your skin tone it might not work for you. I tend to have peachy undertones anyway so I didn’t notice much of a difference. I am definitely happy I picked this up to try & especially for that price! And hello! The packaging is adorable.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know how important it is to take care of and protect your skin in the summer. You will want to look for a sunscreen that offers both UVA and UVB protection. UVB rays play the greatest role in producing sunburn and causing skin cancers. UVA rays also play a role in causing skin cancer, but they also cause premature aging, including wrinkles!
Hawaiian Tropic Antioxidant Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 With Green tea extract
I really like the way this sunscreen feels on the skin and it blends in really nicely. I prefer to use SPF 50 or higher when going to the beach, because of the sun's rays being reflected off of the sand.
Coola Classic Sport Face SPF50 White Tea
I received this SPF in a FabFitFun box and have enjoyed using it this summer. It feels nice on the face and absorbs well without leaving white streaks. This is also a moisturizer, so save space in your travel bag with this dual product.
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless After Sun Lotion
If you find that despite your best efforts to reapply every 2 hours, I really enjoy using this after sun lotion. It contains aloe, but I prefer this over straight aloe because this does not leave a sticky feeling. When on vacation, I use this as my body lotion, burned or not. Being in the sun can dehydrate your skin, so it's best to restore the moisture. I prefer to apply this straight after a shower.
Throw on this sweet little tiered babydoll dress, flat sandals and stud earrings and head to the farmer's market this weekend. Don't forget to put your sunnies and some cash in your little straw handbag so you can taste the last of summer's sweetness.
The ColourPop Cosmetics Mar Palette has easily been one of my favorite eye shadow palettes of the summer. I find the color combinations to be very versatile, allowing natural and creative looks alike. I did a more bold look for my birthday and you can check it out HERE.
I started by buffing Sorbet into the crease as a transition color. I placed Wild One on the outer half of the eyelid and Boozy on the inner half. Sometimes I'll stop right there and keep the look neutral, maybe running Wild One along the lower lashline. But I decided to add a little pop of color to this look and used a combination of Gridlock and Hwy on the lower lashline.

I needed something to go with my What Would Dolly Do? shirt from Remy + Rose Boutique, after all.
