What Does Self-Care Look Like For You? #BuryMeMondays

When it comes to self-care it’s easy to default to beauty rituals and since this is a beauty blog it’s probably even easier.  I want to put something else into the air about this though. Beauty things kind of lift me up(surprise, surprise), but that’s not everyone. If that’s not you, have you investigated what […]

Save and Splurge: Vampy Lip Edition

I’m a woman who likes options or at least that’s what I tell myself when I pick up something that may or may not look similar to something I already own. So today I have a few swatches of some vampy lip options for you. One is on the high side while the others are […]

What’s The Worst Beauty Advice You’ve Heard? #BuryMeMondays

You’ve heard it. You’ve snickered at it. You probably tried it and learned from experience how wrong it was. So what’s the worst beauty advice you’ve heard? The one that gets me is “reviving” your dried out mascara with eye drops. With mascara prices running less than $5 there’s no reason to revive anything. If […]

The Maybelline New York Colorblur by Lipstudio is a cream matte pencil with a blurring smudger that allows you to create different looks with the product.
