top 10 favorite winter lipsticks rachel puccetti between two coasts

Coat: J.Crew, Lipstick- Amorous

If you’ve been following for awhile now, you know how much I love lipstick! It’s one of my absolute favorite beauty products to wear and buy. I get asked a lot of questions about which ones I’m wearing, and which are my favorite, so today I wanted to share my top 10 favorite winter lipsticks with you all! With all of the holiday parties, Christmas photos, and winter attire, there is a lipstick for every occasion!

1. MAC Red– My all-time favorite true red lipstick (blue tone)

2. Savage Matte– the perfect raspberry pink color. The BEST liquid lipstick I’ve ever used.

3. Russian Doll– a gorgeous pinky, red lipstick

4. Kim K.W.– the perfect nude lipstick

5. Captive– one of my favorite everyday shades

6. Creme Cup– the best pinky, nude lipstick

7. #13– my favorite red lipstick when I need something a little more orangey than MAC Red.

8. Amorous– the prettiest, plum for fall/winter

9. Anna– one of my newest favorite shades!

10. Spicy Metal– has such a pretty sparkle for the holidays. The same liquid lipstick as ‘Savage Matte’

Whether you’re looking for the perfect red lipstick for Christmas, a great jewel tone for the winter season, or just the perfect everyday nude, one of these will definitely be a winner! Lipstick also makes for a great gift for a beauty-lover on your list, and such a fun stocking stuffer too!

I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful! I’d love to hear your request for future beauty posts! What are some of you favorite winter lipsticks? Xo, Rachel

What I Bought at the Sephora VIB Sale

what i bought at the sephora vib sale rachel puccetti between two coasts

Happy Sunday, my friends! Today is the last day of the Sephora VIB sale, so I just wanted to pop in real quick and share what I purchased from the sale! Sephora is definitely my happy place (lol!), so it was the perfect way to spend my Saturday afternoon 😉 Some of these are items that I love and re-stocked on, and others are new for me!

#1– IGK Laid-Back Defrizz & Anti-Static Spray: If you read this fun facts about me post, then you know I hate static, especially in my hair, haha! When I came across this product, it was a given!

#2– NAILS INC. Moisturizing & Anti-Aging Hand Mask

#3– Sephora Collection Orchid Eye Mask: I am currently loving sheet masks, and I always love grabbing new ones to try! There’s masks for your hands, lips, eyes, face, etc. and they’re each only around $3-8!

#4– Sephora Collection Shea Lip Mask

#5– Peter Thomas Roth FIRM Peeling Gel: This stuff is the BEST!! You will seriously be amazed at how much it exfoliates off of your face! It leaves your skin feeling so smooth and free of dead skin, and helps your makeup go on much smoother!

#6– Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast: I have pretty fine, smooth hair, so I need anything that gives it texture/volume, and I’ve heard that this does exactly what it’s called– a serious volume blast! Can’t wait to try it.

#7– Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush: I have to admit, I was drawn to this at first just because of how pretty it is, lol! I’ve heard so many great things about Hourglass products though, and love trying new blushes!

#8– Peter Thomas Roth Pore Putty: I’ve been on the hunt for a pore minimizer, and absolutely love everything Peter Thomas Roth does, so I’m super excited to try this out!

#9– beautyblender

#10– Cookie & Body Ice Cream: Again, I had to buy this just because of how cute it is (it seriously looks and smells like ice cream when you open it! Check it out on my Insta Stories!) You can never have too much lotion on hand, and it would also make such a cute gift!

#11– First Aid Beauty Caffeine Matcha Wake Up Wipes: Pretty excited to try these. This girl needs any extra help she can get to wake up in the morning! Also love all of the other FAB products I’ve tried.

 I’d love to hear what you purchased from the Sephora VIB sale, or which one of these you want to try, too! Xo, Rach

Happy first Friday of 2017! I hope the new year has been treating you well so far. I just wanted to take a minute to thank you all for all of your love and support this past year! It means the world to me, and I am so looking forward to all the exciting new things I plan to share with you this year! Each of your sweet comments and support make my day and I would love to get to know you all better this year…I love when you stop by to say hi!! None of this would be possible without each and every one of you, and if you have any suggestions/things you’d like to see in 2017, please share!!

2017 has started out COLD here in KC due to the snow, so I’ve been bundled up inside trying to stay warm! As you may have seen on my Insta/Snapchat this week,I went to get my hair done and matched to my new extensions. New year, new hair! They are clip-ins from Barefoot Blonde Hair, and I absolutely LOVE them! Speaking of hair, one of the things that I am most excited about for 2017 is incorporating more hair/beauty on the blog & on my YouTube Channel (stay tuned!) I want to know, what would you like to see? 🙂

I wore this causal cool look out for my day of pampering, and I couldn’t wait to share it! I recently bought this cute, striped peplum tee (only $35!) and I just love how it pairs with a moto jacket. Also, these metallic kicks and this statement necklace are my latest obsession!

It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving and the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is in full swing! Gift shopping has begun, the best sales of the year are days away, and the countdown to Christmas is on! Yesterday I did some Saturday shopping and boy was it busy…and freezing! I checked off a few items from my gift giving list, and found one too many early gifts to myself (of course, haha!) If there is one thing I simply can’t resist, it’s the beauty items. Give me all the lip sets, face palettes, nail kits and beauty stocking stuffers! I’d be the happiest girl in the world if I received a stocking full of lipstick!

I wanted to kick off Thanksgiving week with the first of my gift guides to hopefully make your gift shopping a little easier and fun, starting with a beauty gift guide. I am sure everyone has a beauty addict in the family, and if you come from an all girl family like I do, you’ve got 4! Above is a handful of my beauty favorites that I’m loving, including a few that I’ve gotten for my mom and sisters, and a few I snuck for myself! I have already purchased number 1, 2, 3, 8, and 12. Two of my favorites are the MAC nutcracker nude mini lip set (SO cute!), and the Sprinkles red velvet lip scrub (yumm!), because Sprinkles Cupcake ATM’s are my jam! Almost all of these are under $50, too!

Happy shopping, ladies!

Bobbi Brown Eye Palette: I love the warm, golden shades in this eye palette! I can’t wait to try this mascara…stay tuned for a review on my favorite mascaras!

sk-II set nordstrom anniversary sale sk-II facial treatment essence beauty

SK-II Set: I have always heard amazing things about SK-II, and have been dying to try it, but it is definitely a splurge beauty product, so I was so excited when I saw that there was a set in the Anniversary sale! With the amount of masks and full sized products that you get in the set, I couldn’t pass it up! I just started incorporating it into my daily routine, so I will be sure to share a review in the next few weeks!

glamglow gravity mud mask

GLAMGLOW GRAVITYMUD Set: My current favorite hobby is trying out new beauty masks (they’re so hot right now!) and GLAMGLOW has quickly become one of my favorites. Between these two sets, you get to try out all of their masks for just $69 each!

Deborah Lippman Nail Polish Set: Deborah Lippmann is my current favorite nail polish, and this set for only $29 is the perfect way to collect a couple new cute colors!

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps: This lotion is hands down the best! I tend to have really dry skin, especially in the winter, and this lotion is a miracle worker!

neulash and neubrow nordstrom

Neulash and Neubrow: I have been using neuLash for about a year now, and I have noticed a significant difference in my lashes! They are longer and fuller! It takes a solid few weeks to start seeing a difference, but it is definitely worth it. Each tube lasts for a good couple of months, but this was the perfect time to stock up on them at such a great price for two! I can’t wait to try the neuBrow, have any of you tried it before?

YSL Pink Lip Set: Let’s face it. I can never say no to lipstick, especially when it comes in such pretty packaging! I get the YSL lip sets each year, and keep coming back for more!

YSL Nude Lip Set

One of my favorite parts about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the beauty exclusives. It’s the best time to stock up on all of my beauty favorites, and to try out new products! I don’t know what it is about beauty products, but I get so giddy anytime I’m in the cosmetic department at Nordstrom, and sometimes go a little crazy!;) I love that there are so many sets, my favorite being the lip sets (of course!) I always take advantage of the Anniversary Sale to try out any splurge products that I have had my eye on.

With only a few short days left, I wanted to share a few of my Nordstrom Anniversary sale beauty favorites with you all! Prices go back up August 8th, so don’t hesitate to grab any of those last minute items you’ve had your eye on! Some of the products I’ve linked are currently out of stock, but be sure to check back throughout the day, I have gotten lucky a few times! I will be sure to share further reviews on some of these products over the next few weeks after I have tested them out!

tula skincare natural beauty products tula skincare beauty blogger tula skincare beauty products tula skincare between two coasts tula skincare rachel puccetti

Growing up, skincare has always been a part of my daily routine. It’s a good habit that my mom taught both my sisters and myself, and it’s a habit that I (and my skin!) are very thankful for! When I was little it was as simple as rinsing my face day and night, and now as I get older, it’s making a conscious effort to not only wash my face twice a day, but to pay close attention to what I am putting on my skin! Whether it’s my makeup, or skincare products, what you put on your skin is equally as important as what you put in your body.

Among the endless list of reasons why sisters are the best, one of my favorite things is sharing all of our tips and tricks, favorite products, etc.! Thanks to my older sister, Ariel, that is how I came across TULA. She couldn’t recommend TULA highly enough, and after trying a couple of the products out myself, I 100% agree! What’s so unique about TULA is their probiotic skincare technology, which creates a healthy, balanced skincare routine for you…your skin will thank you! I tend to have dry skin, no matter the season, and even though my sisters and I have different skin, TULA works wonders for all of us!

I have linked below the products that I have been using so far, and each one is as great as the next. I am eager to try the new Urban Defense Hydrating Mist and the Revitalizing Eye Cream! The Discovery Set is the perfect way to try out a few of the products to see what works best for you! It’s a $104 value for just $52! I also highly recommend reading the quick description for each product… they truly do exactly what they say they will!

One of my favorite parts about blogging is the ability to share with you all some of my favorite finds, and what I have found works not just for me, but for others as well, in hopes that you ladies will come to love them as much as I do! With so much out there, I always find it nice to have a helping hand to navigate through it all! That being said, I would LOVE to hear if you are currently using TULA & what your favorite products are, or if you are just trying it out now and your thoughts!

Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you all for stopping by! XO

Here are a few snippets from life recently…

^This floral lace peplum is the perfect spring top, and I just love the pretty lavender color! I plan to purchase the dress version after seeing it on the NYFW runway this past fall, and also adore it in white! I have been wearing these Jack Purcell’s almost everyday, and I love pairing them with an otherwise feminine look (like in this post) for a more casual, cute outfit.
