Before we jump into the actual review I just want to say how thrilled I am that it’s finally cooling down outside! It’s such a relief to see the end of Summer and the perpetual state of melting. Woo hoo! I’m calling this a first impressions post but I have some fairly strong ideas about […]Read more "LORAC Mega Pro 4"
Just before Christmas I picked up a few little goodies from the Wet n’ Wild “Sequins & Stardust” Holiday/Winter 2016 collection. There were a few cute/odd glosses and eyeshadow pigments that are actually really fun! By far my favorite item that I purchased has been “R-U-Free-2Dance?” (RUF2D) nail polish. Dumb name, but really lovely polish! […]Read more "Wet n’ Wild “R-U-Free-2-Dance?”"
ILNP released two different summer collections this year. Out of the first (The Summer 2016 Collection), I snagged only one shade but I’m pretty sure it’s one of the best shades ever. I present to you, That Other Girl: Would you just look at that sparkly goodness? As per usual with holographic polish, my photos […]Read more "ILNP – That Other Girl"
Hey ya’ll! I missed you! I’ve been struggling with a wicked combination of writers block and too many demands on my time. It’s likely that I will still have slightly limited time for writing for a while but I thought I’d sneak in a quick post (ha! Do I ever write quick posts?). I feel […]Read more "Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette"
Do people still pinch each other for lack of green attire on St. Paddy’s Day? That was totally a thing when I was growing up. In honor of the patron saint of Ireland and his green tinged day, I have a nail polish from Sinful Color’s 2016 St. Patrick’s Day collection. The collection is called […]Read more "Sinful Colors – San Francisco – Happy St. Paddy’s Day!"
ILNP totally has me figured out. Every so often they’ll send me a cute little email with a sneaky little coupon and I mean honestly, who can resist a coupon? Clearly not me. Before I delve into the photos of Diablo, I want to just share a couple of photos of the packaging on this […]Read more "ILNP – Diablo"
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"
When I first heard that Aromaleigh’s Halloween collection was going to be based on poisonous and venomous deadly things, I was slightly intrigued. When I saw the swatch photos that were posted on the Facebook page (they are now posted on Aromaleigh’s website) I was completely agog. So naturally, I placed an order for teensy […]Read more "Aromaleigh Fatalis Eyeshadow Collection"
In my most recent haul, I purchased two of the fall 2015 nail polishes from Essie. I’d actually been hunting for Leggy Legend for about a week before I found it. This color was made for me. Seriously, I really dig it. “So shiny, so chrome.” This was really perfectly acceptable after one coat. I […]Read more "NOTW – Essie Leggy Legend"
