August & September Favorites

August September Favorites

September is over today and for once I have my favorites ready, to which I may or may not be making edits in the following days. I had planned to do an August favorites post but that was halfway through the month which seemed pointless thus I have combined it with my September favorites. I know I forgot an item or two from August, I have the most important favorites, and as for September I have less favorites than I thought I would (I don’t wear as much makeup for my new job). Enough rambling though. Continue reading

This Week At The Drugstore

Wet N Wild Color Icon eyeshadows

Happy first Sunday of fall! It is officially my favorite season and to celebrate I treated myself to a few things from CVS. Just kidding, I’m not that frivolous but I did have coupons on coupons on top of good deals on some items I have had my eye on. Spoiler alert: I only spent $11.92 on everything.  Continue reading

Review | Garnier Hautklar 3 in 1 Face Wash

Garnier Hautklar 3 in 1

“If you don’t have a good base, you don’t have a good face!” – Jaclyn Hill

If only you knew how long I have been waiting to use that quote, which admittedly sounds harsh but it was in good fun and true.  Face wash is an important part of my daily routine and finding one that suits my needs is not as easy as I wish it was, so when I found this one from Garnier I held on to it until the very last, almost dry drop.

Haul | Bath And Body Works Fall Bucket

Bath And Body Works

Happy last day of summer ya’ll! Summer is great and all but autumn is by far my favorite season of the four and I’ve been awaiting its arrival since I bought those pumpkin scented body products last month. And I cannot get enough of pumpkin products, I know I am on the pumpkin marketing bandwagon. Hence, although I said I didn’t want to play catch up to simply “show off” my purchases I must share this bucket of autumn with you! Continue reading

September Ipsy Bag

sept ipsy

Catch up schmash mup, I have decided to not do any catch up posts and instead carry on like normal. What is the point? There is no point in putting my time into posting stuff I’ve bought or received, all the while holding back from writing reviews because I haven’t previously posted that I ever bought that item. Pushing on, my September Ipsy bag arrived last weekend and immediately looked much more promising than the August bag.  Continue reading

Now on: Instagram!

MoscatoAndMascara Instagram

Good evening ya’ll!

Just wanted to pop in and say that I finally started a separate Instagram account for this blog. Not only am I excited to take the next step for this little blog, but on a superficial level (let’s be honest here) I’m happy to have a place to share daily pictures of makeup/candles/coffee. etc. all those “lifestyle” types of pictures that I wouldn’t share for my friends to see.

So go follow @moscatoandmascara and have a wonderful night!

Review | RL de Young Mono Rouge in Rose Wood

RL de Young Mono Rouge Rosewood

Remember when I said I was done playing catch up? Yeah right, self. Besides my Vegas trip, I have been absent due to my new job which gives me a normal 9-5-ish schedule and puts me in the middle of Silicon Valley morning traffic (I live too close to work to take their bus there and not close enough to avoid said traffic, ugh), all of which I am adjusting to. Thankfully I had the foresight to photograph a few products here and there for times like these, like this blush that I bought months ago. Continue reading

Gone For Labor Day Weekend | Last Week Of Summer

2013-11-08 23.30.14-2

No, I am not going to Rome. I guess you could say I am going to Venice, Paris, New York City, and actually you can count Rome in there. Have you guessed?

I’m going to Las Vegas for the entire week! I’m probably driving down the 5 as this posts.


I’m visiting a good friend for the week and celebrating my new job, so apologies if I post nothing during this time. My Instagram should be very active though!

These are all pictures from my last Vegas trip almost two years ago. Eeek!

If you have any recommendations on what to do or what to see let me know below! And I hope you all have a fun filled Labor Day Weekend or Bank Holiday or whatever it is your country celebrates!

Bis gleich!
