Nivea Men Post Shave Balm

Nivea Men Post Shave Balm

Do I even need to explain myself at this point? Unless you haven’t checked Instagram, YouTube, beauty forums, or beauty blogs in the last couple of months then surely you have heard of the  Nivea Men Post Shave Balm and its use as a makeup primer. It sounds crazy yes, but when this idea began to gain traction late last year I decided to jump on the bandwagon. I have been using this for about two months now and finally remembered to jot down my experience. Continue reading

Rave | L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

One year after its launch, or at least since it took over YouTube, the L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation has finally made its way into my makeup bag. And it is never leaving. This is a product that has me kicking myself for not joining the fan club sooner and on the verge of buying a lifetime supply.  Continue reading

Zote Soap… As A Brush Cleaner?

ZOTE soap to clean makeup brushes

You might be wondering why there is a bar of laundry soap heading this post and I can explain. Have you ever come across a tip, a life hack that sounds too good to be true? Then you find yourself dropping everything to put it to the test? This was my weekend with Zote Soap, which I hear makes an excellent makeup brush cleaner. Continue reading

Garnier Micellar Water Has Arrived Stateside!

garnier micellar water

Happy Friday! I am so, so excited to finally have this post on micellar water up, it is silly how excited I am for this. I am a massive fan of micellar water and never got around to posting this when I was in Germany and didn’t feel right posting it afterward because micellar water was not as readily available here. But it is finally here and I’m doing cartwheels! Continue reading

Palm Springs Haul

PS Haul

My first Sunday post of the year! And hopefully the only one this month as I am entering a serious no-buy. I was organizing my makeup recently and there is just so much that I still need to try and I would really like to hit pan one something this year hence I’m going on a no-buy (unless  there is something that calls for celebration in the form of a haul). So far so good as this is all pre-New Year shopping I did in Palm Springs.  Continue reading

Review | Physician’s Formula CC Curl + Care Mascra

Physician's Formula CC Mascra

It seems that I cannot catch a break when it comes to mascara lately and I was hoping this one would turn things around. Even though I picked it up on accident, I meant to go for the green tube, when I opened it and saw the wand I became giddy. After two weeks of use, I think I can offer a good review. Read on!

This Week At The Drugstore

drugstore 12-20

Can anyone believe we are just days away from Christmas? I only need to survive three days at of work this week and then the company closes until New Years so 11 day weekend here I come! Hence, I may not post as much or at all during those days as I will be in my hometown relaxing, seeing old friends, and probably be wearing shorts and a t-shirt. California amirite? But first, my Sunday post. Spoiler: great week for mall sales. Continue reading

Review | Up & Up Complexion Brush

Up & Up Complexion Brush

As of late I have focused a little less on growing my makeup collection and a little more on growing my brush collection. I have also been looking for a tidier and faster way to apply to apply liquid foundation. Combine the two, and I hunted down this foundation brush and I do not want to put it down. Continue reading

This Week At The Drugstore

drugstore 12-13

More like the last three weeks at the drugstore? Lately not much has caught my eye, or maybe I haven’t wandered the drugstores as I used to, or maybe the fact that I have been funneling my funds toward a winter wardrobe contributes to my lack of shopping. At least “This Week At The Drugstore” is back, and it’s a good one.
