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

DIY Glitter Makeup Brushes

Life is better with glitter and I responsibly apply it to every thing I can, including makeup brushes. This year I have seen an increase in girly and cute sets of makeup brushes yet the majority are still plain old black.

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

MARIO BADESCU A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer
