Hi! Hello! How’s it going? If you’ve been around the blog for a while, you might remember that I used to do a monthly series about what makeup I take with me to the gym. I don’t think I’ve done one of these posts in a looooong time. Possibly not since this blog was solely […]Read more "Gym Bag Makeup – February 2018"
This is actually the category of favorites that I’m most excited to talk about this year. I think I mentioned this already, but there were several months this year where I didn’t wear makeup at all. Then when I did start wearing makeup again, I wasn’t so much about trying all the new things as […]Read more "2017 Face Product Favorites"
You might already know this, but I’m a pretty big fan of My Pretty Zombie eyeshadows. Not such a huge fan of zombies in general, but the MPZ eyeshadows are basically the bomb diggity. I’ve written about a few shades previously and I’ve also named this brand’s formula in a yearly favorites post. All that […]Read more "My Pretty Zombie Haul from May 2016"
I recently stopped by a MAC counter to pick up a couple of brushes and while I was waiting for the sales associate, I got to swatching and ended up picking up two items from the recent Flamingo Park Collection. Generally speaking, I get really irritated with the high volume of limited edition releases that […]Read more "MAC Flamingo Park – “This Could Be Fun” and “Pearl Blossom”"
Welcome to Part 2 of the 2015 Favorites series! This was a surprisingly difficult category for me to isolate my favorites. I tried a fair number of new face products this year but very few of them made what I would consider a lasting impression. Maybe I’m just getting old and difficult to impress. Or […]Read more "2015 Face Product Favorites"
I know that the word “obsessed” gets thrown around a lot in the beauty blogging world. It probably irritates you as much as it irritates me but, that being said, I am becoming a little concerned with my inability to use a blush other than MAC Melba. I have a quite large collection of fantastic […]Read more "MAC Powder Blush – Melba"
Sometimes I have a very hard time pairing blush with my eye looks or lipstick. It seems really easy to make a choice that sends my face over the edge from “edgy and cool”HAHAHAhaha.ha. balanced to garish. So rather than try to wipe blush off my face and start over (PITA), I value having a […]Read more "MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul"
I occasionally hear praise for the Tarte matte eyeshadow palettes but for the most part, when I think of Tarte, I think of their much lauded blush line. I only have one shade and I just freaking realized when I sat down to write this post that this shade has been discontinued. I purchased this […]Read more "Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Amused"
I’m pretty sure that we’ve discussed this before, but sometimes I’m extremely susceptible to very cute packaging. Damn you, you clever marketing people! Clinique has a line of blushes that look like colorful little daisy’s and after much deliberation, I succumbed to the cuteness and purchased Heather Pop, a rosy mauve neutral (Clinique puts it […]Read more "Clinique Cheek Pop in Heather Pop"
Is this like Schrodinger’s blush? Is it simultaneously blush, illuminator and bronzer? Now that I’ve horribly misused a respected scientific principle, let’s talk about makeup! NYX Baked Blush+Illuminator+Bronzer in Wanderlust NYX Baked Blush+Illuminator+Bronzer in Foreplay NYX Baked Blush+Illuminator+Bronzer is not actually listed on NYX’s website, but according to the Ulta website: Baked to sheer perfection […]Read more "NYX Baked Blush+Illuminator+Bronzer in Wanderlust and Foreplay"
