The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is an afforable alternative to the BeautyBlender.

Affordable Alternative: @realtechniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is legit. I haven’t tried a bunch of beautyblender alternatives and I am a beautyblender junkie, but this is on par with that product. If someone came to me and said “$20 is too steep for a sponge.” I’d point them to Real Techniques.  

Beauty Blender Truth or Hype

The Beauty Blender: Truth or Hype? #BuryMeMondays

The Beauty Blender. Is it an egg-shaped beacon of light or just another makeup sponge? I happen to love mine to the point that I stopped using brushes for a long time. Others don’t see the big deal or are happy with cheaper options from other companies. Where do you fall on this spectrum? Is the […]

Some Contouring Love: MUFE 5 Camouflage Cream Palette

Contouring is a HUGE deal. Some people swear by it(You’ve seen Instagram) while others aren’t too keen on it. It’s the new thing and an old trick all at the same time. It doesn’t really matter where you fall on it to me, I’m just here to give another option that I haven’t seen getting […]

Black Radiance True Complexion BB Cream: Chocolate and Brown Sugar

The cold, grey, and snowy days have given way to sunny skies so I wanted to pick up some new Black Radiance BB creams in darker shades. It won’t be long before my skin starts to change so I wanted to be ahead of the game. I reviewed this product already so feel free to […]

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Thumbs Up: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is the first Nars foundation I’ve tried. I have used the tinted moisturizer(I like it) and I’ve used the Radiant Creamy Concealer(I like it) but I can’t compare it to Sheer Matte or Sheer Glow.

Seasons Change. Does Your Foundation? #BuryMeMondays

Today’s #BuryMeMondays question is influenced by some tweets I saw yesterday from Krissy(@Krissy90220) entrepreneur and blogger at Addicted To All Things Pretty and Brown Girl Friendly. Now, I know it feels like Spring and Summer are never coming back depending on where you live, but I want to know, do you change your foundation as the […]

What Was Your First Foundation? #BuryMeMondays

My first foundation was a Cover Girl one in Soft Sable. I have no idea how good or how bad it looked but I remember using it, eventually hitting pan and purchasing it again. Not long after that I bought a pink Caboodles organizer and my dad let me order things from an Avon rep […]

Not a Dupe: Earth Theraputics Precisso Beauty Blending Sponge

So let’s get this out of the way. Is the Earth Theraputics Precisso Beauty Blending Sponge a Beautyblender dupe? No. The shape and feel is close, but this product isn’t going to hold up to the cleaning that is required of it. I used this two or three days in a row and it started […]

How Do You Apply Your Foundation? #BuryMeMondays

It’s 2015! *throws confetti* For the new year I’m going to start a Monday Question of the Day. It’ll be posted on the blog and my social media accounts(Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest). It shouldn’t be anything too controversial. I’m just looking for a way to interact with you. It will even have a hashtag #BuryMeMondays. […]

FOTD: A Bold Summer Look Re-creation

FULL DISCLOSURE: Nars 413 BLKR Illuminator and Lost Coast Eyeshadow Duo were gifted to me. I was hanging around on Youtube and decided search for some Nars videos and ran across this one: In this video head artist, Cindy Rodriguez, used some of the products from Nars Cosmetics’ Summer 2014 Adult Swim Collection to create a […]
