March Favorites

We may as well be halfway through April and I just now am able to put up my March favorites. What did I even do all month? Besides celebrating my birthday and lamenting having to pay for my own health insurance… For the first time in a while I have new products to talk about, so that’s exciting, and I also have some oldies but very goodies.

Review | Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

ESSENCE  Lash Princess Volume Mascara

I think I need to set myself reminders to blog since it’s the end of March and the last time I posted was….The days melt together and I keep finding weekend activities to keep me busy. With the days getting longer and hence better lighting for photos, I hope to be better about it. Fingers crossed.

Sooo, I’ve had this mascara since Christmas and it’s been hiding in my makeup bag ever since. But why? Continue reading

February Favorites

February favorites

Happy March ya’ll! I can honestly and without cliché say that March snuck up on me. Hell, mid-February snuck up on me and whatever half-thought plans I had in mind went out the window. I think I can also say that I had fun with makeup and blogging in February, a turn around from the previous month or two, with my first destash and empties post. And now, I also have February favorites. Products that I looked at mid-month and said, “Oh yes, you are a going in there!” Continue reading

Milani Rose Powder Blush in Tea Rose

Milani Rose Powder Brush in Tea Rose

Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth it to to post about “old” products, products that have been in stores for months or years. Maybe. It still gives me sanity so here it goes…

What girly girl wouldn’t want this beautiful blush in their collection? The Milani Rose Powder Blushes have been around for over a while I and I picked up my first one last, last December. It’s been a while but long enough to write about it. Mine is in the shade Tea Rose, Continue reading

Empties no.1

makeup empties

This post is uncharted territory for me, even after a year and half of blogging. I have never done an empties post, partly because I am too forgetful and toss everything in the bin and partly because it takes me three months to collect enough bottles for a single post. These are empties from about October to mid-January, for as many products as I have I don’t go through them that fast. Continue reading

2016 Favorites

2016 favorites

We are two weeks into the new year, how is 2017 treating everyone so far? I have been busy or tired, like I went to bed at 7:00 p.m. last night, and have a life update coming soon. I tried to prepare this post last month before l went on vacation and I took a different approach. Instead of digging through my collection for an hour looking for favorites, I grabbed the first things that came to mind. I figured that was the most honest way to do this, or the laziest. Any products I forgot will be mentioned at the end. Continue reading

Day-to-Night Makeup in Vegas

Day-to-Night Makeup in Vegas

I am long, long overdo for a Vegas trip so in lieu of that I am sharing my day-to-night makeup picks. Whether you like shopping, relaxing, food or nightlife, Las Vegas has everything and I never have a bad time. So when I heard about the Vegas.com makeup challenge I got giddy (and sad because I haven’t been in a while). Here is what I came up with. Continue reading

November Favorites

November Favorites

November is one of my favorite months and what a month it was. I settled into a routine (I moved last month), cozied up my apartment, and spent a lot of time with friends. As for makeup, I wasn’t sure I had any favorites different from last month but I took a look and found a few. Continue reading

P2 Glow Touch Compact Blush Touch of Peony

P2 Glow Touch Compact Blush Touch of Peony

When I was in Germany this summer I picked up two of the P2 Glow Touch Compact Blushes. They had always caught my eye and since P2 tends to change up their product line twice a year I decided to pick up two shades before they were potentially discontinued. Today’s shade is Touch of Peony, probably one of my favorite summer blushes. It may be fall, but I haf to share. Continue reading
