Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder


I have combo/oily skin and like to use a powder to help set my foundation and keep excess shine at bay in my trouble areas (the T zone) at bay. I purchased and hauled Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder (in Transparent) at the beginning of April and have been using it for the majority of the month. I find that this powder has been helpful in cutting the shine where I need it to without making my face look dull and lifeless. Check out my Pros/Cons list for a straight to the point review!

The Beauty Blogger Tag

I recently saw The Beauty Blogger Tag on All Things Beauty! I enjoyed learning more about Rosina because I follow her blog regularly. I thought this would be a good tag because I get to share some info regarding my beauty habits with my readers. Let me know in the comments if you've done this tag!

My Wishlist: Mascara

If I were able to own only one makeup product for the rest of my life, I'd choose mascara (I'd also want concealer, but that's only because my skin misbehaves). Seriously though, I feel nothing transforms my face more than mascara. It's the most important item in my makeup arsenal and I always want to try out the newest versions on the search for my Holy Grail Mascara.

Colored Bobby Pin Hairstyles

Brightly colored bobby pins are a great hair accessory for the spring and summer months! They can add a pop of color while also keeping your hair tame and out of your face. Like any trend, colored bobby pins may not be for everyone, and that's okay! If you're a firm believer in keeping bobby pins concealed, I understand; I won't try to convert anyone. :) 


I've put some hairstyle ideas together using the bobby pins that I painted in my last post, DIY: Colored Bobby Pins.

DIY: Colored Bobby Pins!

Have you been noticing colored bobby pins and hair clips a lot recently? I feel like I've been seeing them everywhere. Painted hair accessories is not a new concept; in fact, I still have a few hand painted clips from my childhood. I love my mismatched assortment of colorful clips and pins from (many, many) years ago, but I've had the urge to create some bold and repetitive patterns with bobby pins that would require I paint new ones. 


I recently purchased 300 bobby pins (seen in my Collective Beauty Haul), so I could stand to spare a few for this very simple DIY project.

Something to be Thankful For

Before delving into today's post, I'd like to give fair warning that it will be a little different than the beauty and fashion posts that you're accustomed to. Beginning today, in addition to those usual entries, I'll also be including blog posts relating to lifestyle subjects. As the executive decision maker of Fairest's Favorites, I've deemed this to be okay :) and hope you agree.


I came across a quote on Pinterest that really hit home for me. Since re-pinning it on my Inspiration & Quotes Board, the quote has been re-pinned more than 50 times and liked over 15. It's nice to see how many people relate to this, and that for whatever reason, no matter what struggles they may be facing, their outlook on life is similar to my own.

OOTD: Little Black Dress with Animal Print Belt

I want to start by saying this isn't technically my Outfit Of The Day... today. I wore this outfit over the weekend, took the pictures, and I'm now posting it today. That's okay, right?


It's been warm the past several days, to the point where wearing pants would be unbearable and simply out of the question. Hooray for dresses!

NOTD: Essie's Penny Talk

I've made mention of Essie's Penny Talk a lately. First it was in my Nail Polish Wishlist and then I hauled it in my Collective Beauty Haul. So today was the day to finally polish my nails with it!

I was recently nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award by Emily at Sunbeams and Daisy Dreams. If you haven't already checked out her blog, I highly recommend it.

I ♥ Spring Tag

I mentioned in my First Day of Spring OOTD post that Spring is my favorite season. I love the weather; everything is alive and new again. It really is the best! When I saw the ♥ Spring Tag created by Ingrid (MissGlamorazzi) on YouTube I knew I had to do this tag too! However, it slipped my mind until I saw Val, from Making it Sparkle, post her I ♥ Spring Tag

Wet n' Wild Mega Length Mascara

I've been using Wet n' Wild Mega Length Mascara off and on for a couple years. I like trying new mascaras (don't we all?), but I keep going back to Mega Length. There are 10 reasons why this simple navy blue tube has won a place as a mascara staple in my makeup collection. (Picture of mascara used included- "Read More")
