Today marks the end date to my 101 in 1001Β and I have some very mixed feelings about it. First of all, if you don’t know what 101 in 1001 is, it’s a list of 101 things to accomplish in 1001 days. I made my list (which took all day of some hard thinking and a […]

Burt’s Bees Lipstick | Review

Burt's Bees lipstick review | brandie-sellers.com

Earlier in the month, I saw a blog post about Burt’s Bees lipstick. It’s not often I buy lip color anymore since I’m trying to whittle down my collection, but considering I’m moving more towards natural based beauty products and maybe needed a good Spring lip color anyway, you couldn’t imagine how excited I was […]

Spring Makeup | 2014

Welcome to Spring! I think? Apparently the East cost is supposed to be slammed with snow again next week. We’re all still bundled up here and still feeling the effects of Winter, but I have been craving spring colors for a while now. I’m ready to leave my coat at home, throw on something colorful, […]

NYX Invincible & Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation Review

Full coverage foundations are pretty important to me. My foundation itself is the most important thing that goes on my face since I still have breakouts and redness (or scares) from the blemishes. I’ve always wanted to make sure everything was fairly covered up with minimal red showing through my foundation. Light to medium coverage […]

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment

Back when I worked at Sephora during the Holidays,Β we had the Fresh Sugar duo birthday gifts for the Beauty Insiders. I had never tried the product and had heard from many that it’s a great lip balm. The packaging enough drew me in with the colorful metal twist tubes. But I stayed away until it […]

Iris eau de toilette Spray by Crabtree and Evelyn

About a year ago I discovered at Hallmark this amazing scent. Every time I would go in I would always spritz a little on my wrist, not ready to make the commitment of purchasing a bottle for myself. So after admiring it all this time, this was the only thing I asked my husband to […]
