Nude Lipstick/Everyday Lip Product Collection AND a Mother’s Day Giveaway on Instagram!

may 8, 2016 | by: mercedes | filed under: makeup, videos


Sharing my nude lipstick/everyday lip product collection on YouTube this Sunday, complete with lots of arm swatches which end up looking like a beautiful work of art when I’m all done! It’s the little things. I’m also intending to do a companion video of my bold lipsticks – my one true makeup love!

Also, Happy Mother’s Day! Amaki Beauty, who sponsored a Valentine’s Day giveaway I did, sent me a box of beautiful products for a Mother’s Day giveaway. These things would make beautiful gifts, or I would NOT judge you if you decide to keep them for yourself. I show product close-ups of everything in the box on the intro to my video on youtube today, but here’s what’s included:

Mother’s Day Gift Set, valued at $51, includes –


Rose Water Hydrating Mist Toner 4 fl oz

Jasmine & Rose Nourishing Oil 4 fl oz

Konjac Facial Wash Sponge
If you don’t win the giveaway but want one of these sets anyway, it can be yours! It’s $37 plus free U.S. shipping, http://www.amakiskincare.com/products/mothers-day-gift-set


All the details will be over on Instagram, so head over there to enter!


W3LL People Collection + Universalist Multi-Stick Lip Swatches ( et un Valentine’s Day Giveaway)

february 14, 2016 | by: mercedes | filed under: makeup, videos

Happy Valentine’s Day, or as I saw on By Terry’s IG – Joyeuse Saint-Valentin! This Sunday’s video is a continuation of the W3LL People theme from my Valentine’s Day makeup look from last week. I’m telling you my extended thoughts on everything in my W3LL People collection, and comparisons to other eco products. I also decided to lip swatch all the shades of their Universalist Multi-Sticks (I’m only missing one – #4 – which has been out of stock and I couldn’t get my hands on it).  As always, feel free to watch on YouTube (and subscribe!) or down below.

Additionally I’m doing a little love-filled Valentine’s Day giveaway over on Instagram! Check out the deets in both the video and the IG post itself to enter to win THESE beauties from amaki skincare (ending tonight, so time is of the essence!):

Current Skincare Routine (AM/PM) + GIVEAWAY featuring Nuciya Natural Beauty

november 23, 2015 | by: mercedes | filed under: videos, skincare




If you missed it on YouTube or Instagram, I uploaded my current am and pm skincare routines yesterday. It’s a topic I LOVE talking about, as a good skincare routine really is the foundation for everything else beauty-related. Knock on wood I’ve been really pleased with my skin lately, and it just keeps improving – becoming more even, less red, reduced hyperpigmentation, maintains hydration and stays balanced. It’s an ever-evolving practice (like everything!) but I feel so fortunate to have had the pleasure recently of incorporating stand out products from the Beauty Heroes subscription boxes and the Mahalo skincare range.



There’s also an opportunity for you to win a $25 gift certificate to the online eco-beauty boutique, Nuciya Natural Beauty! Details about the boutique and how to enter the giveaway are in the video and description box, but in short:

$5 off any order over $25 CODE for Nuciya: 153083 (good for 30 uses)
