So I got a few things from E.L.F. This is another one of those brands that I love because they consistently sell quality products at a great price (meaning cheap). There are five full-size products in this haul that I didn't pay for; the site was running a fall promotion, so I received two lip... Continue Reading →
My stuff arrived! I'm not typically a sucker for cool/cute packaging but this collection got me. Do you see how freaking cute this stuff is?! You've outdone yourselves this time Colourpop. I cannot wait to try this stuff tomorrow.
Greetings friends! As I've mentioned in the past, I don't plan to make videos; that being said, I still want to have a few tutorials for basic things by YouTubers I like, meaning the ones who still work "real" jobs and know how insane it is to spend $130 on a blush. So today I... Continue Reading →
There are some beauty trends/techniques that I just don't get. Not only can I not figure out how to do them, I also don't get why they're so trendy and popular. Contouring is one of these things. I mean, I kind of understand the concept. It makes your face look thinner and whatever, but why... Continue Reading →
I've wanted to try NYX products for quite a while. Surprisingly I didn't own anything from NYX except the promotional birthday palette I received from Ulta this year, and I haven't actually used it yet. I hear so much about this brand but I just never got around to finding something I wanted/needed, until last... Continue Reading →
Yes really. In an effort to not bore my Facebook friends with makeup junk and makeup friends with Facebook junk, I've created a page just for this blog. Head on over to the book of faces and check it out.
I have a lot of opinions, as you've surely noticed by now. Some of them are funny, others are well reasoned and flexible, and some are unpopular. What kind of unpopular opinions, you ask? Well, I'm thinking about starting a new series in which I tell you all about them, consequences be damned. I think... Continue Reading →
I wouldn't be surprised if you've never heard of Catrice. This brand originated in Germany in the early-aughts and has only been trickling into the States for the last year or two. Ulta carries some products from this brand but they're only in select stores, and a lot of them you can only get online.... Continue Reading →
I only wore this foundation for about six hours yesterday, which I realize is a short wear test but I just ran out of time. It was a pleasantly warm and slightly humid day. I didn't use a primer but I did set it with my Maybelline Matte + Poreless pressed powder in translucent. Ok,... Continue Reading →
I've been using this palette for awhile and I think I'm finally in a place to review it, so here goes. I've used it several times, even though it looks totally untouched. Pros: There's very little fallout so it'll last a long time. It's inexpensive ($23 for 35 shadows) and the quality is really nice.... Continue Reading →
This is a K-beauty mask I've been using for the last few months. In my empties post I talked about a Julep sleep mask and my initial hesitation to put something heavy on my face overnight, and that hesitation applied to this mask as well. My skin isn't sensitive, but there are some things it... Continue Reading →
At last, another real review! Today I tried the new(ish) foundation from Cover Girl in shade 720 Creamy Natural. I used a primer, the Too Faced Hangover Rx, and followed up with Maybelline FitMe Matte + Poreless pressed powder in translucent. Pros: So many! Much to my surprise. The packaging is beautiful and feels high quality,... Continue Reading →
I. Love. Colourpop. A lot, obviously. I love them even more now that they're about to drop a vintage My Little Pony collection. I don't like to be one of those people who's like "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!", but that's kind of how I feel about this collection. I don't know that I'll... Continue Reading →
I don't typically like drugstores. Most of them (around here anyway) are old and a little grungy. I go in for cold medicine and prescriptions and then get the hell out. Walgreens is different, and I weirdly love being in my local store. It's bright, clean, the employees are helpful and I always feel like... Continue Reading →
So damn excited for the Colourpop My Little Pony collection!
