Supergoop Sunscreen Oil

Don't Skip SPF: @Supergoop! Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil

What makes us not wear sunscreen? We forget. It may smell funny. Not to mention that if you have dark skin it can leave a white cast. So we tell ourselves it’s cloudy outside. We believe the temperature is an indication of the sunrays’ intensity. We say we’re covered up and not walking around outside […]

St Ives Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub

A Skincare Winner: St. Ives Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub

If you’re anything like me, you try products, use it for awhile, then move on to something else. It’s not the product is bad you just want to check something else out. Sometimes those abandoned products end up languishing under your sink and others times you end  up revisiting them and wonder how you lived […]

For Beginners and Experts Alike: L'Oreal Makeup Genius

If you love makeup you’ve experienced the hope of something working for you only to find out it’s nothing like you thought. If you’re a makeup novice you may grapple with the anxiety of picking something that isn’t going to work for you. No matter the camp you fall in, as a consumer, you have […]

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.

Simple Ultra-Light Gel Moisturizer

The Simple Ultra-Light Gel Moisturizer is my favorite moisturizer of the moment. I began using it as a replacement for a greasy night cream I disliked. It worked well because I felt moisturized but didn’t look like I slathered my face in goop and since it didn’t have SPF there was no reason to use […]

If you’re looking to add a serum to your skincare routine this could be something worth trying out. The retinol, hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin C pack a […]

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics: Pagan and Technopagan

I have been coveting the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Unknown Pleasures Lip Tars since they came out a few months ago. There are 6 lip tars and 6 nail lacquers in Unknown Pleasures and I was lucky enough to be gifted Technopagan and Pagan from the superdope Terra(@SimplyTsundere). It was really unexpected and I’m so grateful […]

NARS Cosmetics Velvet Matte Lip Pencil: Cruella and Train Bleu

I am an unabashed NARSissist. It is my holy grail brand. If I had the chance to meet François Nars I’d probably pass out. However, that opportunity probably won’t present itself anytime soon so I have to be satisfied with cool products. This is Cruella and Train Bleu Velvet Matte Lip Pencils.

Keeping My Skin Under Control With Bioré

I’ve been using the Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser($6.50) for the last few months and it’s kind of thrown me for a loop. I say that because it feels like my skin has improved since I’ve been using it. Now this isn’t a drastic improvement because I wasn’t battling serious acne to begin with. I […]
