I am long, long overdo for a Vegas trip so in lieu of that I am sharing my day-to-night makeup picks. Whether you like shopping, relaxing, food or nightlife, Las Vegas has everything and I never have a bad time. So when I heard about the Vegas.com makeup challenge I got giddy (and sad because I haven’t been in a while). Here is what I came up with. Continue reading
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
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
Two weeks, the last two weeks at the drugstore. In an effort to have more self-control, to save money, and to use more of what I already have, I am cutting back on these posts and trips to the drugstore. Looking at this post I feel that my efforts were somewhat successful but some deals are too good to pass up on!
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
Just as I asked myself “where is my money going if not toward makeup?” I answered my own question: clothes. My money has been going toward clothing as of late, my wardrobe was in real need of an update for work and weekends. Not that this is a clothing haul, simply a lead-up to the can’t-pass-’em-up coupons I took advantage of this week. Continue reading
Someone check my temperature because the amount of shopping I have not been doing is alarming. Perhaps it’s due to my first IPSY bag or simply that the American drugstore brands are not churning out limited edition collections like German brands. Whatever it is, my wallet is not complaining. Continue reading
Last weekend I went out of town for my boyfriend’s work and any time I pack for small trips the hardest part is usually my makeup bag. Which eyeshadows are most versatile to suit different outfits? Which blush will accommodate those eyeshadows? Which products are the most hassle free? Which products are the least bulky?
Here is the makeup bag I came up with, not just for that trip but for any upcoming summer getaway. Continue reading
Happy Sunday and day after Eurovision! Today I decided to finally post my last order from Kosmetik4Less instead of what I bought at the drugstore since this order arrived a week ago. Also, this week at the drugstore was a bit boring (deodorant and face masks) apart from a lipstick. Sooo… Continue reading
About two months ago I found out about Kosmetik4Less, a German online makeup store based in Hamburg with a wide variety of brands and products and reasonable shipping. For the next month I compiled my first wish list and saved my loose change in my “Beauty Jar” and after hours of deliberating here are the final products I ordered. Continue reading
