 After sticking with one eye cream for the past three years, Never Say Die Beauty had an opportunity to try City Beauty Advanced Eye Cream when hers was out of stock. Now she may never go back!

Jen from Laugh, Love, Contour has had another themed week, and this past week was Goddess Week. With several palettes that include the name “Goddess”, just decided to not just create a pretty face but turn this into a challenge in which she created the look of a specific goddess inspired by each palette. She kicked off the week by creating the West African Orisha, Oya. Check out her look and learn a little about this fascinating orisha!

Tired muscles? Prime Beauty loves Warfighter CBD Bath Bombs for her sore legs and feet AND she’s giving away a set!

If you are looking for a palette that can transition from summer into the beginning of fall, you may want to try the Viseart Spritz Eyeshadow Palette. You can see swatches and a review over on Southeast by Midwest.

Arcona Wine Oil, which smells like the embodiment of Autumn, is an antioxidant rich anti-aging beauty oil that Lola’s Secret Beauty Blog loves. This sumptuous resveratrol-based formula harnesses the power and potency extracted from grapes, and delivers its nourishing ingredients deep into the skin for long lasting and intensive hydration.

Beauty Info Zone has the answer for all your pedicure woes with the terrific Stedi-Pedi Pro. This will make your life so much easier and you won’t know how you ever did a pedicure with this.

This week the Going Solo Fall Collection from Red Eyed Lacquer released. BeginNails reviewed them and did some fun nail art show-casing the multiple uses of the cremes and topper.

Our necks are often neglected in our skincare routines leading to premature aging. Stacie reviewed a neck cream that she swears by over on The Makeup Obsessed Mom Blog.

The Farmacy Very Cherry Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm is back but for only a limited time. If you missed it, the first time around or want to restock your stash, now is the time to jump on it. Erika at Notes from My Dressing Table has the details.
