I'm spending this year attempting to be more conscious of the things I buy, but I've still purchased some things. Some of these things have been disappointing. I'd like to talk about them, and maybe you can learn from my mistakes. Everything I've tried from Kopari Beauty During the Christmas clearance sale I bought a... Continue Reading →
Look who made an effort today!
Just a quick post to check in and show off the fact that I made an effort today! I got up almost on time and actually did my hair! I only had enough time left over for a 5-minute makeup routine before I had to be in a meeting for work, but still. Hair AND... Continue Reading →
Holiday anti-haul: drugstore edition
Am I too late in the Christmas season to talk about products I don't want? Yes? Oh well, you're getting another anti-haul anyway. I know that I talked about some inexpensive products in my Ulta anti-haul, but there's more drugstore stuff that's been released that I feel personally victimized by. Mostly because they're pointless, gimmicky... Continue Reading →
CoverGirl loves bunny rabbits!

Cruelty Free International, formerly the 'British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection', has existed for over a century and from its inception has aimed to end experimentation of any kind on animals. They've awarded their Leaping Bunny Certification to... Continue Reading →
Review: L’Oreal Pure Clay Cleanser, Purify and Mattify
I didn't realize this, but my last post was my 200th. Holy crap. That means that my brain, with the assistance of friends, family and the internet, came up with the words and creativity to write TWO. HUNDRED. POSTS. Oh my god. I can't even believe it. Anyway, this cleanser came with me the last time... Continue Reading →
Review: Wet ‘n Wild Mega Cushion Foundation
Guys. This is good. So if you've read my blog for any length of time you know that I love Wet 'n Wild. LOVE IT. I can count the number of products I haven't liked on one hand. If you're interested in those, and some things that I love, I posted about it back in... Continue Reading →
First impression: Olay Regenerist Whip moisturizer
Like I mentioned yesterday, I received some foil packet samples of the new Olay Regenerist Whip moisturizer in the Target VoxBox from Influenster. I have to admit something to you, and since we're friends I know you won't judge me for it: I haven't used a drugstore moisturizer since middle school. I know how bougie... Continue Reading →
Review: Garnier Whole Blends Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner Avocado Oil & Shea Butter
Ok brands, we need to talk about the length of your product names. They're getting ridiculous. Anyway, I've never tried a Garnier hair product that I've liked. Back in the day when the Fructis shampoos were all the rage I gave them a shot and regretted it. I've also tried hair masks, hair spray, dye...... Continue Reading →
I freaking love Walgreens
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 →
My skin care routine
My skin has looked pretty spectacular lately so I wanted to take a few minutes to go over my skin care routine, just in case anyone was interested or needed a little help in the skin department. I should start out by saying that I have moderately oily skin. My oil production isn't in high... Continue Reading →
I found some more drugstore stuff I don’t like!
Simple Micellar Water This dislike applies to both the Kind to Skin version and the Water Boost version. Pros: It seems to remove face makeup fairly well and I like the way it makes my face feel. I also like the top, which sounds weird, but if you've ever used the Garnier Micellar Water you'll know... Continue Reading →
So it's Labor Day weekend here in the US and since I know you're not here for a history lesson I'll spare you the stories about the fight for the five-day work week and workplace safety measures after the Triangle fire. We'll talk about makeup instead, and some of the glorious sales happening this weekend.... Continue Reading →
Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Foundation
Another one bites the dust.
Recent drugstore fails
I hate this stuff.
Finally, an actual review
I want to talk about the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour. This is the first product I've ever purchased from Rimmel London. Until very recently I was both a makeup snob and very averse to lip colors. I hadn't found any drugstore products I really liked; even when I was in high school and Cover... Continue Reading →
