A Little Bit of Contour and Highlight

I have this dream of beating my face to the high heavens and slaying all comers with my contouring and highlighting. However, I have a long way to go. Today was just practice. I think it turned out well. I used a light hand this time so we’ll see what happens if I go a […]

The Olay Pro-X Brush Is Enough For Me

This is definitely not a post that will disparage any of the other automatic cleansing brushes on the market. For one, I haven’t tried all of them. And two, I believe on some level they all work to the best of their ability, so if you have one that you love by all means stick […]

Colds Suck but So Does Bad Skin

I have a cold. Bleh. However, that is not the point of this post. I’m hoping that eventhough I’m dealing with this that I won’t let my skincare/beauty regimen fall by the wayside. The last time I got sick I came out of it with skin in dire need of exfoliation and eyebrows in need […]

RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream

I’ve been working on building a skincare regimen lately. I’m happy with my cleanser choices(I alternate between a couple). I like my moisturizer as well. However, it occurred to me that I didn’t have an eye cream. At this point I’m not battling major signs of aging. I don’t really have puffiness, crow’s feet, or […]

L'Oreal Silkissime Eyeliner Review

A recent CVS trip yielded new eyeliner from L’Oreal Paris. The Silkissme by Infallible Eyeliner boasts of a rich, silky formula that “glides on like silk for a soft and luxurious line with up to 16 hours of intensity.” It’s also ophthalmologist tested and suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. These are all […]

Milani Eyeshadow Primer: A Bargain Eyeshadow Primer Alternative?

I was on the hunt for something new to try so I stopped in CVS and purchased a couple of things. One of those things was Milani Eyeshadow Primer. I’m generally an Urban Decay Primer Potion kind of girl, but I wanted to give this a shot. Drugstore brands have improved a lot so I […]

NARS Cosmetics – Jungle Red

Jungle Red by NARS Cosmetics is described as a semi-matte bright red and it is bright. This might be off-putting for some especially if you’re new to red lipstick, but I say go for it if you think it might work for you. Since this lipstick is so bright I decided just to wing out […]

LUXE OIL Cocoa Deluxe Whipped Butter

This is the Cocoa Deluxe Whipped Butter from LUXE OIL. It’s quickly becoming my go-to moisturizer for these brutal winter months. I found out about the product via twitter. Krissy, the butter’s creator and beauty blogger at Addicted To All Things Pretty wanted her readers to have something to fight the war against eczema and […]

Another Naked 3 Look

I wanted to show this look with my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. Some people seem to love it and others seem to think the palette just okay. I like the palette but it’s definitely ranked at 3 compared to the original Naked palette and Naked 2. Sidenote: Before I stopped on this shade of […]
