It's Halloween, my favorite holiday, and I'm about to scare you with another unpopular opinion; to my friends who sell Lipsense, I'm really sorry. I'm hella proud of all of you for building successful businesses, especially with a brand that seems to value empowering women, but this is one product I don't think I can get... Continue Reading →
Review: Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation
Ok guys, it's time for me to eat crow. Back in the day, I was a pretty hardcore makeup snob, which I've mentioned before. I wouldn't wear anything that couldn't be purchased at Sephora, except maybe Burt's Bees lip balm. I was vehemently anti-drug store when it came to my makeup, and I was convinced...

Let’s talk about: Outlander
I know, I know; this post is not about makeup. I want to talk about it anyway. I absolutely love this show, and the books series it's based on. I'm only about halfway through the third book so the show is about to pass me, and it's weird to not know what's going to happen.... Continue Reading →
The Halloween tag!
I saw this tag on a blog I follow, Kat's Chats; make sure you check out her post. I'm finding that I really enjoy doing these tags. I'm new here so it's a good way to get to know me, and it gives me an easy topic for a post. Now that I've been doing... Continue Reading →
Review: Mizon Multi-Function All in One Snail Repair Cream
Sorry for the late post folks; it's been a busy few days, and I ran out of scheduled posts. I've been using this cream for a few weeks consistently and I think I have a pretty good idea of how it performs. Pros: A little bit goes a long way and there's a lot of product... Continue Reading →
Unpopular opinion: I don’t like dudes in the beauty industry
This might be my first really unpopular opinion, but hear me out. I am not opposed to dudes wearing, enjoying, purchasing or discussing makeup. I actually think it's kind of great, and I'm encouraged by other countries who are more accepting of it and have cosmetics lines geared specifically for men, like Japan and Korea. What I...

I have a thing about movie tie-in collections
I don't know what it is about movie themed makeup; I just love it. I've purchased a few of these eyeshadow palettes over the last few years, and I wanted to talk about some that have really impressed me. First and foremost is the newest of these movie tie-ins, the Snow White collection from Besame... Continue Reading →
What am I reading?
I love books. Maybe more than I love makeup. If I ever had to choose between the two I'd be distraught. I'd occasionally like to talk about what I'm reading here, partly to break up the constant barrage of makeup madness, but also because I'm not part of a book club or anything and rarely...

Review: Rimmel Stay Matte primer and foundation
This post could also be titled "I completely missed the boat on this one. Oops". When this came out a few years ago I was still staunchly anti-drugstore makeup. I was particularly turned off by Rimmel because their commercials were so ridiculous. I've since changed my tune about the brand and the price point. I... Continue Reading →
Post schedule, new series, etc.
So, I've been thinking... Every time I get thinking about things I come up with ideas which inevitably lead to terrible things like organization and scheduling. Anyway. I'd like to have a slightly more structured schedule for my posts. Right now I post whatever I feel like with almost no thought to it, and it... Continue Reading →
The Beauty Blogger tag!
I've never done a tag here before but thought I'd give it a shot... I saw a post like this while scrolling through blogs I follow (there are A LOT) and was like, what the hell. I've got nothing else going on except real work and life and other such nonsense. Plus I like thinking... Continue Reading →
Review: Maybelline FitMe Stick Foundation in 130 Buff Beige
I've noticed that this is a bit of a controversial product. People either love it or hate it, and there doesn't seem to be any in between. I think I might be one of those in-between people. I don't think this is an epic, holy grail product by any means, but it's not terrible. Pros: The... Continue Reading →
Unpopular opinion: I have no interest in Fenty Beauty
I'm pretty sure this is like beauty sacrilege. I like Rihanna. She seems like a cool, confident feminist who doesn't let insane media attention and millions of haters get her down. I don't listen to her music because I have the musical tastes of a 60-year-old dude (#classicrock4life), but I'm open to the possibility of... Continue Reading →
Oh my lord, I was nominated for a Liebster Award!
Yes, I intended to rhyme because I'm adorable and quirky. Obviously. Anyway. Strap in because this is going to be a long post. Liebster Award! I was nominated for this award by Ana over at Beauty & Lifestyle With Ana. I've only recently discovered this blog but I love it; first of all, Ana is... Continue Reading →
Let’s talk about: Essence
Where has this brand been all my life? It's been popular in Germany for the last 15ish years but I only started seeing it in Ulta a few months ago. To be honest I completely overlooked it; how could a brand this cheap make anything worth buying? That's the part I still haven't figured out. Over the... Continue Reading →
