Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer

MARIO BADESCU A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer

Once I had my skin care routine down I wanted to get into the specifics of it. I replaced my basic, morning-and-night moisturizer with the Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer, it was also a step in the direction of upgrading my skincare products. I never hear moisturizers talked about which makes finding one all the more daunting. However, I think I found a keeper.  Continue reading

The Importance of Pedicures

elf-haul-85

I readily admit that I am not the best at getting regular pedicures, manicures maybe but when it comes to my feet I am fine slathering my feetsies with a thick cream and pulling some comfy socks on. Aesthetics aside, pedicures and toe health (is that a thing?) should not be overlooked. I recently found out why, only after spending $90 on new shoes. Unnecessarily. Continue reading

Germany Haul | Part 2 | Blush and More Blush

Germany Haul

How about that “Oops!” moment when you find a draft you never scheduled or posted? Better late than never I suppose. If you missed part I of my Germany haul, here it is, even if just to look at pretty pictures of makeup.

I hope you like blush because as the title implies, there is a lot of blush in part two of my Germany haul. In fact, I have been thinking of doing a blush declutter as I am now nearing 40 blushes. Don’t judge… However, I also picked up a few neat pieces that are not blush that I am also very excited about!  Continue reading

My Affordable and Practical Makeup Storage (Tips)

makeup storage

For someone who loves makeup and runs a beauty blog, I have never written about my makeup storage and I’m fixing that today. I don’t have luxurious acrylic storage, I don’t have the iconic Alex drawers, and I don’t have a glamorous vanity or “battle station.” I tend to move, a lot, and I need affordable and practical storage solutions for my makeup. Which is exactly what I’m sharing with you today. Continue reading

Germany Haul (with tons of pictures!)

Germany Hau;

I am back! Or rather I have been back and quite busy. Today I have the first part of my Germany haul, some fun products and some boring products but exciting for me all the same as the German drugstore is where I got my start. Surprisingly I did not buy as much as I thought I would which prompted my boyfriend to ask if I had been taken over by an imposter. Anyway, can’t wait to catch up on everyone’s blog and here we go!

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights

Today I have another highlighter to talk about, and it is another one from Makeup Revolution. This is a quick one as it is another one of their Vivid Baked Highlighters, I reviewed another one here. Although they are the same product in different shades I find them to be quite different, different enough to merit Golden Lights its own post. Continue reading

BH Cosmetics Bombshell Bronzer in Starlet

BH Cosmetics Bombshell Bronzer in Starlet

I have never been one for bronzer and maybe I never will be, still I have found one that I can’t put down.  Silly me always thought bronzer was pointless for someone with my olive, easily tanned complexion and while I now know better, I still can’t get into them. Months ago I needed a few dollars to get free shipping on a order from BH Cosmetics and this looked pretty enough so I added it to my cart. Now that the weather is warmer and the sun is shining I have been testing it and I think I love it! Continue reading

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Radiant Lights

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter Radiant Lights

Going through my posts and strangely, I have yet to mention a Makeup Revolution highlighter. Today I am fixing that with their Vivid Baked Highlighter in Radiant Lights. Tati mentioned these in a video not long ago and I respectfully disagree with her opinion. (I also found her lack of brand research alarming and uncharacteristic.) Find out why! Continue reading
