E.L.F. Shimmer Powder in Pink

Today I have yet another product that has been in my collection for months, that I have used plenty of times, and that I have failed to mention on my blog. Even though I mentioned the E.L.F. Shimmer Powder in my February Favorites I keep forgetting to talk about it and to write about this hidden gem of a highlighter. If you’re looking for a good and budget friendly highlighter, you may want to read on.

Hype, Morphe, and Private Labeling

Does anyone else feel as though they can’t go a day without seeing or hearing about the brand Morphe on YouTube or social media? I myself have been curious about their products but have never been able to pull the trigger. Maybe it is the relentless hype train going full speed ahead on YouTube or their horribly disjointed website last time I visited. And then I saw this video from Stephanie Nicole that has been making the rounds on Reddit recently. Whatever your feelings on Morphe, this video is worth the watch for the information and insights she gives on the beauty industry.

March Favorites

March Faves

Just like my Ipsy bags, I feel that my monthly favorites are inspired one month and tired the next.    This month was tiring and when I am tired and don’t want to think I rely on old, tried and true favorites. Still, there were a few products that stood out and proved themselves to be absolute necessities. Continue reading

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blush in Rose Champagne

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blush Rose Champagne

Once in a while I let myself become excited about a product, a rarity as I usually do loads of research or I pick products that I think will pan out. When Wet n Wild added a new blush to their Color Icon line, I let myself get excited. With a shade name like Rose Champagne and a color to match, how could I not? Sadly, it did not pan out for me.

New Wet n Wild ProLine Felt Tip Eyeliner

New Wet n Wild ProLine Felt Tip Eyeliner

Happy Friday! As much as I am looking forward to a fun-filled weekend, I will once again be on Team No Sleep and have little time to blog. Such has been the case since my Denver trip and only made worse by daylight savings. Seriously, is it still necessary? At least I found time and energy to write a quick review of an eyeliner I have not been able to put down. Continue reading

Carli Bybel Palette x BH Cosmetics

BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette

Even though I had no clue who Carli Bybel was when this palette launched this fall I quickly fell into the hype. A custom palette from BH Cosmetics, one of my favorite brands, pretty swatches on Instagram, and affordable? I signed up on their waitlist immediately. After months of admiring it in my collection I finally put it to the test and here are my thoughts. Enjoy the swatch porn! Continue reading

My Morning Skincare Routine

Happy Monday ladies and gents! Today I want to share with you my current skincare routine for mornings to change things up from posting nothing but reviews and reviews. Creating a skincare routine requires time, research, an understanding of your skin, and testing. Thus, after weeks of looking at different routines and slowly incorporating new products I have come up with the following simple morning routine. Later this week I will have my night time routine up as well.

$7 CVS Haul? Yes!

7 dollar haul-2

Apologies for the click-baity title,  but it is absolutely true. So far this year I have backed off my “This Week At The Drugstore” Sunday posts because they were redundant and encouraging my shopping addiction but I have to share this. Recently I heard someone complain that CVS is the most expensive of the American drugstores but a little bit of planning and a few lucky coupons one can really score at CVS. See for yourself!

February Favorites

February Favorites

What a month! From having the Superbowl in town to visiting my best friend in Denver last week, February held plenty of opportunities to play with makeup. This post is late, sorry, but I was exhausted this whole week and I was fighting the urge to have an energy drink at work, eeek! But I slept in today and here are my many February Favorites!

Physicians Formula Sexy Boost Cat Eyes Mascara

Physicians Formula Sexy Boost Cat Eyes Mascara

During the last few months I have amassed a small mascara collection, I thought there was enough to last me through the year. Fail after fail proved me wrong though. Nothing impressed me and I was trying a new mascara and tossing it every couple of weeks, which finally led me to try the Physicians Formula Sexy Boost Cat Eyes Mascara. Safe to say, this could be holy grail status. Continue reading
