Hi! Coming to you super quickly to share 4 items I ordered from the Girl With Curves for Lane Bryant collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably OVER me talking about it. But it’s good for many reasons!

Review: Girl with Curves for Lane Bryant Collection
Hi! Coming to you super quickly to share 4 items I ordered from the Girl With Curves for Lane Bryant collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably OVER me talking about it. But it’s good for many reasons!

Here’s why it’s a big deal:

I was 4 for 4: Do you know how rare it is that I keep every single item in an order?! Usually fit or fabric is off in some way or another, or I just don’t like garments on me. Keeping 100% of the things I buy doesn’t happen often.
Styles look great on so many body types.

Unexpected wins: Between color and *pants* this collection filled some major style gaps in my closet. I have an incredibly hard time with tops and pants (which is why 80% of what I own is dresses), and was able to find 2 tops AND 1 pair of pants that I loved.

Overviews of Lane Bryant

It sold out incredibly fast (some pieces, within hours) BUT Lane Bryant is now offering store shipping, so you can now order nearly all the items online again.

You can buy in store: So few plus collections can be purchased in nearly every city, and Lane Bryant is one of the few companies that has a wide retail presence. Go to the store and try these beauties on.

No fancy photos, just me and my iPhone, self-timer, and tripod. If you want to see these styles in-motion, I’ll put a video at the end here. Sorry it’s formatted oddly – I made it for IGTV.

Girl With Curves High-Waist Skinny Pant

Lane Bryant

It’s rare that you see me in pants and a shirt here, unless it’s a workout outfit! That’s because pants and shirts are difficult to find that fit my proportions. These pants tick all the boxes for me: they are high waisted (see video below for my tummy view), and stretchy, but look like trousers. They are sleek and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of them.

My problem with tops is that I’m 5’10 and long torsoed. So many shirts look like crop tops on me. It’s perpetual flesh belt city with me and tops. This one? PERFECT. Extremely long, but not sloppy in the least. Very comfortable. And the color? I’ve NEVER worn this color lilac before, and it’s beautiful.

Girl With Curves Belted Wrap-Hem Sweater

Lane Bryant

This sweater would be perfect with the high waisted pants from above, but here I’m wearing it with the jeans I happened to have on when they arrived. It is very long, and my favorite color of the moment – a rich marigold. The knit is comfortable, and very soft. The sleeves are a fun surprise.

Girl with Curves Pleated Trench Dress

This item was the fastest selling one in the collection, and it’s easy to understand why (though, not so great in this photo! See the video below) It’s navy, and can be worn as a dress or as a trench coat. It’s a beautifully made layering piece, or dress on its own. This will be a piece you can wear for years.

When a follower and friend reached out to me on Instagram and told me I should try shopping Nasty Gal’s plus size clothing, I was surprised to learn that the brand carried clothing for plus size women. And I’m not sure how I didn’t know…given that I absolutely worship Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal.

Does Nasty Gal have plus sizes?

Lane Bryant

I went straight to the Nasty Gal plus size clothing section hoping that I would stumble upon a gold mine of cute plus size clothing. Upon my first couple of scrolls, I was intrigued. I instantly saw pieces that I loved including this From New Button plus size skirt and this Never Stop Wandering plus size graphic tee, which is sadly out of stock! At first glance, I really loved the laid-back, but the chic vibe of the collection. However, I felt like there weren’t many options.

The plus size section only had 150 pieces, whereas the straight-size section had more than 500 garments. Aside from the slim pickings, I will say that the price point was perfect for me and my budget. I ended up getting this whole outfit for less than $30—with shipping included—during a sale. I was a little nervous to order this skirt because I noticed it was a non-stretch fabric.

What is Nasty Gal sizing like?

Lane Bryant

My usual rule when shopping online is to size up if it’s not stretchy or stay away from it at all costs. However, I decided to take a chance on the skirt and order my usual size. Besides, you all know I cannot resist a plus size mini skirt. When I got the clothes in the mail, I instantly tried on the skirt to see if it would fit. To my surprise, it was actually a little loose in the waist. The material was much thinner than I thought it would be, which I think helped the fit be so spot on. The T-shirt fits perfectly, as expected.

All in all, I am very happy with this look. I think the skirt is super cute and it could be paired with almost any kind of top. The T-shirt is my favorite, and I can’t wait to wear it with jeans and everything in between. I really hope that Nasty Gal continues to add to its plus size selection because I feel like the brand has a unique style and perspective to offer the plus size community that it hasn’t already seen!

If there is a brand that you would like for me to test out, feel free to reach out to me via email or on Instagram! I am always open to suggestions.

SIZING INFO:

I am wearing a size 18, which is my usual size, and the skirt fits perfectly. The skirt isn’t stretchy, but it fit me pretty well. I am wearing a size 18 in the T-shirt, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly!

Allbirds Pacer Sneakers

This post contains affiliate links. When you purchase through links on this post, we may earn an affiliate commission. Thanks.

A change in season calls for a wardrobe refresh, and there’s no better way to start fall than with a crisp pair of Allbirds sneakers. The popular sustainable footwear brand just launched the Pacer Sneakers, a timeless, everyday shoe that’s perfect for travel with its comfortable, supportive, and versatile construction. And, despite just arriving on the scene, styles of the shoe have already earned five-star ratings from shoppers.

The Allbirds Pacer Sneakers are available in canvas and leather options, each boasting the brand’s celebrity- and editor-loved comfort, sleek look, and sustainably sourced materials. Shoppers of the $110 Pacer Canvas Sneakers, will enjoy the shoes’ lightweight, durable, and breathable organic cotton uppers in Allbirds’ signature Natural Black and Natural White colors, as well as in two limited-edition hues: Hazy Beige and Thrive Teal.

Allbirds Pacer Sneakers

As for the Pacer Plant Sneakers, their stylish exterior is made of 100 percent plastic- and petroleum-free leather that uses natural rubber, plant oils, and recycled materials. This version, which costs $135, comes in Natural White and a limited-edition Dreamy Green color. Both the canvas and leather Pacer Sneakers are available in sizes 5 to 11.

Whether you go with the Pacer Canvas Sneakers or their plant leather counterparts, your feet will be treated to Allbirds’ Sweetfoam midsoles, which are made with a sustainable sugarcane EVA material to cushion your toes, arches, and heels for maximum support. If you’ve got a long day of walking ahead, the midsole is also great for absorbing shock and minimizing fatigue and pain.

Both shoes also have a eucalyptus-based Tencel-lyocell blend lining that’s soft and lightweight for additional comfort plus a durable rubber outsole that supports your natural stride. It’s also worth mentioning that the bottom of the shoe features a grippy traction pattern, which will help you walk confidently across slick airport terminal floors, unpredictable cobblestone streets, loose dirt paths, and any other surfaces and terrains you may encounter while traveling.

Thanks to their supportive fit, classic silhouette, and fun array of color options, the Pacer Sneakers will seamlessly fit into your travel wardrobe. While you may think that they can only be reserved for laidback travel day outfits, we see them as the perfect footwear option for sightseeing tours, brunches, walks along the boardwalk, shows, and more. And, if your itinerary calls for something a bit dressier, you can easily pair the sneakers with your favorite dresses, skirts, and flowy pants to match the dress code.

Allbirds Pacer Sneakers

As we mentioned earlier, the Pacer Sneakers are already being met with glowing praise from shoppers. After wearing the Pacer Plant Sneakers “on hikes, to work, and working out,” one shopper raved that they were “so comfortable”. They added:“[They’re] also the easiest to clean white shoes. Even wearing them on muddy trails wasn’t any issue; they cleaned up quickly and were supportive.”

A second customer chimed in to highlight the Pacer Plant Sneakers’ durability, noting that they “went above and beyond my expectations.” The customer wrote, “after months of testing these bad boys out, I’m very impressed with how the white leather has held up (with very few scuffs!).”

Give your fall travel wardrobe the ultimate upgrade with the Pacer Sneakers. Get a pair at Allbirds today so you can embark on your next adventure stylishly and comfortably.

About Benefit Cosmetics

Benefit Cosmetics Review

Buy Now At Benefit Cosmetics

In 1976, the Ford twins, namely Jane and Jean Ford were just two Indiana farm girls turned successful models and makeup artists. They wanted more to life than just that, so they went to San Francisco to open up either a casserole cafe or a makeup shop.

Heads or tails?

Luckily, they landed on tails and they started a small beauty and makeup store called “Face Place” which then changed to Benefit Cosmetics in 1990. They wanted Benefit Cosmetics to be aboutadding laughter and confidence in every woman> as they were in the feel-good business rather than simply selling cosmetics.

While still at the mission district, at the Face Place, they manufactured their first product called the “Rose Tint” (now famously known as “benetint”). As the product picked up, they developed “lip plump” in the 80s then in the 90s they moved to New York City to open their first Benefit counter at Henri Bendel.

After years of hard work, the brand has now become a global brand with their daughters and nieces, Maggie & Annie Ford Danielson widely marketing the brand. As of today, the brand is sold in over 50 countries across five continents and has over 3,000 Brow Bars and 85 Boutiques worldwide.

Pros

  • Variety: The brand sells a range of cosmetics for the eyes, brows, lips, and face in general.
  • Experience and Expertise: The company has been in the market for over four decades, hence they must know a lot about the industry.
  • Widely Available: Benefit Cosmetic products are present in over 50 countries and many more locations.
  • The brand offers both products in the cosmetic line and services such as waxing, makeup application, and virtual consultations.
  • They offer 60-day returns.

Benefit Cosmetics Products Review

The Benefit Cosmetics line covers just about every facial element, from the eyes, lips, cheeks, brows, lashes, and general facial skin. Let’s review some common makeup products.

Benefit Cosmetics Mascara

Benefit Cosmetics Review

The Benefit Cosmetics mascara is a lash enhancer that lengthens, lifts, volumizes, and curls your lashes in one go. The product has a custom domed-tip brush to allow for a better definition of your lashes, and also add flair and volume to the lashes without it feeling lumpy or too heavy on the lashes.

The mascara is formulated to add color and visibility, as well as offer long-lasting results. The product is available in full and mini sizes and also comes in two shades: jet black and beyond brown.

To use the mascara, hold the wand and wiggle it against your lashes from side to side, base to tip. Continue with this motion for additional volume, lift, and length. For curls and separation, use the wand vertically and stroke your lashes upwards.

Lastly, if you’d like more definition on your lashes use the mascara and the Benefit eyelash primer together. And, if you only want to curl your lashes, opt for the Benefits Cosmetics roller lash curling mascara instead.

Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional Primer

This brand doesn’t just offer makeup products, they have a Benefit skincare line that includes moisturizers, makeup removers, cleansers, exfoliators, the Benefit Cosmetics serum for anti-defying, and the Benefit Cosmetics primer called Porefessional Primer Pro Balm.

The Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional Primer works as a makeup and skincare product where you can apply it before makeup to smoothen your skin and matte the appearance making it less shiny. And as a skincare product where the primer helps minimize the appearance of pores for better setting of your foundation.

The face primer is formulated silky thin as a lightweight non-comedogenic and translucent balm that helps to complement your skin tone while helping the makeup stay on for long. It is formulated with vitamin E derivatives that act as antioxidants that protect the skin against free radicals and pollution that may hasten the aging of your skin.

That said, besides minimizing the appearance of pores, the product can also be used to smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles. For best results, apply a thin layer of the primer on clean and moisturized skin. Pat gently from the center and spread outwards with your fingers. Apply the primer before and after your makeup.

Lastly, the primer is available in mini, full, and value sizes.

Benefit Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel

Benefit Cosmetics Review

The Benefit Cosmetics eyebrow gel works similarly to the mascara, in that, it’s used to volumize the eyebrows using a fiber gel. The tinted eyebrow gel has tiny microfibers that easily adhere to the hair on the brows and the skin around to help create a fuller brow that appears natural and stays on for long.

Available in a mini, value, and full size, the brow gel kit contains a tiny custom tapered brush that’s precise to allow for an easy, messy-free application. What’s more, the gel comes in a variety of shades ranging from light brown to dark brown, black to black-brown, and cool grey shade.

Finally, the brow gel is water-resistant so as soon as you fill in and lay down the eyebrows, you can expect to stay with the product even when it’s raining or as you sweat.

Do note, that the product has potential allergens. Seeing as you’ll be applying the product to your face which is quite sensitive, be aware of mica and the Titanium dioxide in the gel.

Benefit Cosmetics Precisely My Brow Pencil

Buy Now At Benefit Cosmetics

If you don’t like to apply gel to your eyebrows, you can opt for the Benefits Cosmetics Precisely My Brow Pencil which is just like any other pencil you would use to draw or write, but this brow pencil is ultra-fine to help with defining your eyebrows.

The brow pencil is available in many shades such as light blonde, brown, black, and cool grey and you can purchase the full or mini variant.

To use the pencil, start at the base of your brows and draw upwards to create tiny hair-like flicks on the brows. The strokes should be short and light to imitate the direction of your natural hair growth. This way, the result will be as natural-looking as possible.

What’s great about the product is that the brow pencil is designed to last 12 hours without any budge.

Benefit Cosmetics Blush

Buy Now At Benefit Cosmetics

The last product review we’ll take a look at is the Benefits Cosmetics blush which is a Sugarbomb Rosy Pink blush that helps highlight and add instant radiance to your cheeks.

Available in a full and travel mini size, the blush also features additional three bold colors to add lush to your cheeks for a perfect complexion.

To use the product, swirl the blush on your cheeks with a makeup brush to achieve the flush you’d like.

Benefit Cosmetics Reviews from Customers

Buy Now At Benefit Cosmetics

Benefit Cosmetics has a rather low customer rating from sites like Trustpilot and Sitejabber. Nonetheless, the brand still excels in many elements such as quality of products, customer service, returns, and value for money.

Shoppers are primarily impressed with the variety and quality of makeup they offer, plus its effectiveness. Many are happy with the color options available that suit a large customer base and how easy it is to apply these makeup products.

One positive review reads, ” I love how natural their makeup looks on my skin. I use this every day and I feel safe with its ingredients because I never had any irritation. Big fan here.”

Unfortunately, as with any other business, there are highs and lows. Some customers expressed their concerns over how long delivery took plus how pricey the products were. Here are two negative customer reviews.

The biggest annoyance was the shipping time. It took forever to ship and by the time they used the slowest mailing service (smart post) it took almost 3 weeks to arrive. The customer service lady constantly talked over me when I tried to inquire about my package. When it arrived, it didn’t even come in a box. It came in a bubble mailer with light padding despite there being blushes and other sensitive items.

I wouldn’t recommend it. I purchased some items for a birthday present and paid for a 2-3 delivery. It’s 8 working days later and they still haven’t arrived. By this point I’ve already had to buy another present – waste of time, wouldn’t recommend.

All in all, the brand received a lot of positive reviews over negative reviews which means the brand is still worth a try and with a few tweaks, they could be at five stars.

Benefit FAQ

Does Benefit Cosmetics Offer Discounts/Samples for Makeup Artists?

Yes, the brand has an exclusive program called Benefit PRO where beauty professionals like makeup artists, aestheticians, and cosmetologists can get samples and discounts on their products. More information about the program such as the available discounts, membership applications, and much more is available on their website.

Are Benefit Cosmetics Products Hypo-allergenic?

The brand doesn’t test nor claims that their products are hypo-allergenic or non. If you may have allergies or an allergic reaction, be sure to first review the ingredients list on the product page and consult with your physician to determine if the product is suitable for your skin.

Are Benefit Cosmetics Products Gluten-free?

Gluten on cosmetic products is unlikely to cause adverse reactions to the skin nor have such reactions been verified to be true as gluten can’t be absorbed through the skin. Nonetheless, the brand does have policies in place to reassure customers on the gluten issue.

First, they don’t formulate their products with gluten as one of their ingredients and second, they only use high-quality ingredients derived from grain sources.

On the other hand, despite these policies, gluten may be present in the product as it’s a constituent of some raw materials used to make cosmetics. Therefore if you’re gluten intolerant, available products are derived from grain sources such as wheat (Triticum Vulgare, Secale cereale, Avena sativa, and Hordeum distichon).

Does Benefit Cosmetics Test on Animals?

No, Benefit Cosmetics doesn’t test on animals.

Allbirds Launches Pink Running Shoes

Allbirds Pink Running Shoes

We’ve all heard the canonical phrase, “on Wednesdays, we wear pink” from the 2004 cult classic Mean Girls, but the phrase has been reincarnated in today’s launch of the Allbirds x Lindsay Lohan collab which declares, “on Wednesdays, we launch pink.” The pink to which the beloved brand is referring is a limited edition Lux pink color of the Allbirds Tree Flyer running shoe, available in both men’s and women’s sizes. The shoe also comes in six other color options and has gained attention for being both sustainable and a comfortable and reliable training shoe.

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

The shoe was most recently included in Runner’s World’s “What We’re Testing” roundup for May. Runner-in-Chief Jeff Dengate found the shoe to be lighter and bouncier than Allbirds’ original running shoe, the Tree Dasher. “It’s a little lighter than the Dasher, the upper feels a bit more refined for running fast, and the innovative midsole is soft but can handle my daily runs,” stated Dengate. “It’s still a little heavier than comparable shoes—and there are a lot of great daily trainers you can find for $160—but it shows promise that Allbirds is committed to making a great running shoe without using petroleum-based products.”

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

While sustainability has become a top priority for countless consumers, many companies have fallen short of the mark with their supposedly eco-friendly offerings, which have either become subject to greenwashing or are simply sub-par products. But Allbirds is actually doing the work, creating a quality product that’s also actually eco-friendly. This shoe in particular is carbon-neutral and contains materials like castor beans, eucalyptus fiber, merino wool, and recycled water bottles. The brand has also pledged to continue lowering its carbon footprint as it expands its product offerings.

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

Besides her fame—and ties to their slogan—Lindsay Lohan may seem like a bit of an odd choice for a running shoe collaboration, but Allbirds says that was intentional. They state on their website, “with Lindsay’s help, we’re reminding the world that anyone and everyone can lace up and move their body.”
