Review: Kaja Beauty Bento Bouncy Eyeshadow Trios

*This post contains affiliate links. That means if you click on my link and buy something, I may earn a small credit from the advertiser at no additional cost to you. Thank you for supporting Leopard Lace and Cheesecake!

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Kaja Beauty Bento Bouncy Eyeshadow Trios. I have wanted to try these little compact shadows for a while and finally picked them up a few months ago. I shared one of them on Instagram and loved it so much that I purchased a couple more. I am traveling soon and originally planned to bring one larger eyeshadow palette with me. After I purchased a new toiletry bag I decided that I was going to only bring one bag for all of my makeup and skincare. The best way to succeed at that is to bring smaller items. That is when I decided to pick up more of these little trios. Keep reading to hear more about these Bouncy Eyeshadow Trios and to see swatches of each.

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Tartelette Juicy Palette. Its been quite a while since I purchased a palette or a bunch of makeup in general. I have always been a fan of Tarte shadows and their Tartelette palettes especially.  I have owned all of them at one point or another. This palette isn't brand new but it is their newest one that they have launched. I decided to pick it up because the colors seem like a good range of neutrals that you could use on a daily basis. Keep reading to hear more about this palette, my thoughts on it, and swatches.

Review: Jaclyn Cosmetics Poutspoken Liquid Lipsticks and Lip Liner

 Hey Guys,

Today I am going to share my thoughts on the Jaclyn Cosmetics Poutspoken Liquid Lipsticks and Lip Liners. I wasn't able to grab any during her initial launch because they sold out in minutes. However, I was able to grab a few during her restock a few weeks ago. Both products are currently only available on the Jaclyn Cosmetics website but will launch at Ulta in May. I have been trying these products out for about a week and am ready to share my thoughts with you. Keep reading to learn more about the products, see swatches, and my overall opinion of them.

Basement Room Makeover

*This post contains affiliate links. That means if you click on my link and buy something, I may earn a small credit from the advertiser at no additional cost to you. Thank you for supporting Leopard Lace and Cheesecake!

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share a little home improvement project that my boyfriend Colin and I recently did. My basement is half finished by the previous owner and I never really did anything to the room down there. It was plain and not much love went into the decor. We recently decided to make the room more visually appealing in the hopes of it adding value down the road when I go to sell my townhouse. We didn't want to spend a ton of money so we decided to repaint the walls, replace the flooring around the bar, replace the bar countertop, and add some new decor. I eventually want to rip up the old carpets and replace it with flooring but it wasn't in our budget this time around. Keep reading to see before and after pics and to check out the products purchased for this room makeover!

Hey Guys,

Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Jaclyn Cosmetics Bronze & Blushing Duo that I picked up when it launched at Ulta. I planned to grab two duos but the other one that I wanted sold out instantly. If you are unfamiliar with Jaclyn Cosmetics, its is a brand owned and run by beauty YouTuber Jaclyn Hill. She has had three different product launches over the past few years. The first of lipsticks was a complete disaster and she faced alot of back lash because of it. (I personally really liked her lipsticks). Her second launch was different forms of highlighters. These were well received and customers begged for her to make these limited edition products permanents. You can check out my review of the Flash Palette HERE. She recently launched a quick Valentine's Day collection and then announced these duos. Her new collection consists of 7 blush and bronzer duos. She also launched single highlighters the most popular shades in limited edition highlighter collection. Keep reading to hear more about the bronze and blushing duos and what I thought of the shade that I picked up!

Hey Guys,
I know we are now into February but I had some interest in seeing it so I'm going to be sharing my favorite beauty products of 2020. I am splitting the favorites into best of makeup and best of skincare. I will be starting with makeup. Its definitely been a weird year so my makeup preferences and routines have changed quite a bit. Since I worked from home from March to October I barley wore makeup more than 1-2x a week. Now that I am going to the office 2x a week I am wearing it some more but covid has changed my makeup preferences and what works for me on a daily basis. I'm going to share the makeup items that I reached for the most in 2020 and just couldn't live without!

Hey Guys,

Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Morphe x Madison Beer Channel Surfing Artistry Palette that I picked up last month. I have seen a lot of good reviews of this palette and have wanted to pick it up for a while. This palette was already very affordable to begin with. However, Ulta had it on sale so I was able to get it for even less and use some of my Ulta points toward the purchase. After all the discounts and points I believe that I got this for about $7.00. Keep reading to hear more about this palette and to see swatches of the shadows!
