This New Product Will Get You Ready For Every Outfit

This post is sponsored by joy.

How many times have you changed your outfit because you realized too late that your legs weren’t quite show-ready? This happens to me all the time. And, since shaving usually takes me a long time, it’s easier to just change. But, wearing my best outfit for a day helps me show up feeling and looking like my best. So, being ill prepared for leg-hair situations is not acceptable. I was intrigued, then, when I learned about joy. The is a brand new shaver for us women that promises to make shaving simple and even joyful. Got your attention too, right?

I like to keep my beauty routine simple, which is probably why I neglect shaving until I absolutely have to. joy got my full attention with its uncomplicated design that makes shaving simple.

Get this. The joy razor has five blades! These five blades give such a comfortable shave and remove hair so well. That’s a fact!

When I realized how amazing this razor was, I made sure to stock up on to stay ready for all hairy situations. The is available only at Walmart. I also picked up some , available only at Walmart.

I must admit, until I started using glee, I’d been using any shampoo on hand to shave. Don’t judge me, y’all! , though, available in a mousse (refreshing summer lily scent) or shave gel (calming cucumber and aloe) has converted me. I’m using the gel below. Do you see that rich lather it gave me once it hit wet skin?

I feel especially comfortable using my joy razor with this shave gel. It’s smooth sailing! You know what else I like? This has a non-slip grip. It doesn’t slip when my hands are wet nor covered in gel. I’m really digging that.

Urban Decay Launches Naked Cherry Collection, And It’s Sweet!

Given it’s popularity over the years, it’s very likely you’ve owned an Urban Decay Naked palette or two at some point. That palette achieved cult-favorite status. I really enjoyed getting creative and mastering my own makeup skills with Urban Decay palettes. So, it was shocking when news broke earlier this fall that the original Naked palette would be discontinued. What the what?

Good news is, though, Urban Decay was working on something new, and it’s good. Really good. Last month, Urban Decay dropped the Naked Cherry Collection, which includes a Naked Cherry eyeshadow palette. Will it be permanent and replace the original Naked palette? That’s left to be seen. What I do know is the collection is bomb. I got my hands on the entire thing, so I’m sharing a quick look and early favorites.

The entire Naked Cherry Collection includes the , , , , a , and 3 satin finish Vice Lipsticks in , , and .

The 12 shadow palette is fantastic if you love warm berry hues. I do! I’ve already been experimenting with most of the colors. I’ve been enjoying the perfect spread of shimmers and mattes. As with all Urban Decay shadows, I love how easily they apply and wear.

I prefer matte lippies, so these lipsticks really surprised me because I love ’em. I’ve worn Juicy, a shimmering peachy beige, every day since getting it. The deep cherry red is my second favorite. All in all, these lip colors complement the eye looks you’d create with the palette well.

When I first opened the , I knew immediately I’d love the reddish-coral blush and the shimmering highlighter on the left. I was hesitant, though, about that iridescent complexion topper on the right. It’s the kind of color that can easily look ashy on brown skin. It looks fabulous though!

Here’s an easy look I created using the Naked Cherry Collection. My foundation is . The lipstick is Juicy. I’m also wearing that iridescent highlighter. Quite nice, right? As always, I set my makeup with the All Nighter Spray. It’s my go-to setting spray. I will be sticking to the original formula, but the cherry-scented one has a soft cherry scent that’s pleasant.

See how well the collection accents fall’s favorite brown hues here.
