Eyebrows have never been something I slaved over or spent more than a minute on, makeup wise anyway, I could happily spend my evening tweezing and trimming and combing. For the last couple of years I’ve simply been taking a small angled brush to a MAC eyeshadow and using that to fill in my brows. Earlier this month I had a coupon to spend on E.L.F. products and was curious to try their Studio Eyebrow Kit, I couldn’t go wrong with a free product.
As mentioned last week, I am currently on a no-buy to force myself to write more product posts, and I must say I am semi-succeeding. Hence, I saved this post for Sunday, my haul day. Previously I’ve mentioned two body sprays from them and I’m sure that whatever it is that I said does not do justice to my infatuation with this store.
Months ago, maybe three or four, a follower asked me or rather suggested I talk about dry shampoos she could find in Europe. I was very excited to have someone who looked to blog for recommendations and a new topic for a post but I knew nothing about dry shampoo. Well Sarah, I hope this isn’t too horribly late!

Looking through the products I’ve purchased since returning to the states and my posting history I realized I have never talked about foundation. Not surprising given the fact that I have been faithful to my MAC Studio Fix Plus Powder Foundation since the age of 16, and the one time I strayed it was not a very positive experience. But that has changed this summer with Maybelline’s Fit Me Matte + Poreless. Continue reading
Just as I asked myself “where is my money going if not toward makeup?” I answered my own question: clothes. My money has been going toward clothing as of late, my wardrobe was in real need of an update for work and weekends. Not that this is a clothing haul, simply a lead-up to the can’t-pass-’em-up coupons I took advantage of this week. Continue reading
We all know the saying, “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone” and I’m applying it to the product I want to review today. Following my last post I decided it was not fair to destroy the featured product and gently rave about about its competitor and then deny the latter its own post. So here I am, formally raving about the E.L.F. Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer. Continue reading
You would think that as a die hard baseball fan I would apply the “three strikes and you’re out” rule to more areas of my life, such as makeup. But makeup is something that needs to be tried and tested, observed under a variety of circumstances. Hence why I have put up with this eyeshadow primer for longer than I should have. But no more, and here is why. Continue reading
Someone check my temperature because the amount of shopping I have not been doing is alarming. Perhaps it’s due to my first IPSY bag or simply that the American drugstore brands are not churning out limited edition collections like German brands. Whatever it is, my wallet is not complaining.

Happy Sunday! This week I took a step back and tried not to buy anything, mostly due to a slump. Last weekend was bad, the week didn’t start off any better and occasionally I wonder why I even buy so much makeup; when will I use it all up? Then I realize makeup pulls me out of slumps and there’s a big CVS coupon in my purse that needs to be used. Continue reading
I finally had time to do my July favorites! This month I think I had more new products than I could possibly try out for an extended period of time, meaning I did enjoy some of the things I bought but did not use them enough to appropriately call them “favorites”. Enough rambling, let me get through this so I can get back to testing new purchases. Continue reading
