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

eBay Gold Metal Brushes | RT Bold Metals Collection Dupes

ebay RT gold brushes

Next on my list of posts I need to put up: these Real Techniques makeup brush dupes from eBay. I saw these on Reddit in late November and ordered them the next day as I was in need of makeup brushes and the price could not be beat. While I waited for mine to arrive I saw them popping up on the Instagrams of a couple of my favorite bloggers and even a recommended video on Youtube. They arrived in early December and four months later, here they are on the blog. Continue reading

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

When I eventually cancel my Ipsy subscription I can circle back to this as a driving factor. When my November bag did not arrive and they eventually sent three total, one of them contained this brush inside. Oh I was elated to finally get a useful brush! Except it is not. 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.

BH Cosmetics Haul & More!

BH Xmas

Should I put “another” in front of that title? Because I have yet another BH Cosmetics haul and then some today. But, it isn’t all for me. Last week BH had one of their free shipping specials and with Christmas coming up I used this haul to get some presents out of the way.This should have gone up last Sunday at the beginning of my nine day weekend but I lost track of time! Hopefully this is the last haul for a while…

Review | Essence Blush Brush

Essence Blush Brush After my success with the Essence Blending Brush I became curious about their other brushes. I was debating between the blush and the powder brush and seeing as my last blush brush was starting to feel like sweeping a broom across my cheeks, I went with this pink blush brush. The blending brush set the bar and I was truly hoping this brush would meet it. Continue reading
