What's The Best Subscription Box

What’s The Best Subscription Box? #BuryMeMondays

I buy way too much stuff. If you follow me on Instagram it’s obvious. So to curb that I jumped on the subscription box train and sprung for the Play by Sephora one. It’s $10 a month and products are curated based on my PLAY! PROFILE. This month’s box is my first one and so […]

Swatches, Swatches, Swatches: The Beginning

This post contains affiliate links. I have grand plans. Plans that involve lipstick and photos and me wearing those lipsticks in said photos. I’m not sure how it’s all going to shake out. Some say the hardest part of doing something is taking the first step. That makes sense. Many talk themselves out of doing something […]

The Remix: @UltaBeauty or @Sephora? #BuryMeMondays

I’ve asked this question before but there’s been a recent development so I wanted to ask it again. Which do you love more, Ulta or Sephora? Chicago Tribune reports that “a limited portfolio” of NARS Cosmetics is coming to Ulta. There’s no telling which products will be included but this could be a game changer […]

Natural Korean Beauty for Sensitive Skin from @CaolionUSA

Korean beauty is everywhere. From bb creams to Korean towels to sheet masks it’s taken the US market by storm. There are lots of brands to choose from and places to go to get your fix. I stumbled upon Caolion recently and was really impressed with the message of making products for sensitive skin.

What Should You Buy With Your @Sephora Gift Card?

You’ve begged. You’ve pleaded. You’ve dealt with everyone rolling their eyes, but you finally got it, a Sephora gift card. I know you heard the harps play and angels sing, but now the anxiety is setting in. You want to make this purchase count so what should you get? There are endless possibilities and perhaps […]

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 […]

Nars Cosmetics Dolce Vita

A Fall Blush Option: @NARSissist Dolce Vita

Fall is upon us. You may be dragging your hoodies (or someone else’s *winks*) from your closets so that means it’s time to transition your makeup to deeper tones. Deeper lippies are a staple, but what about blushes? Nars Cosmetics Dolce Vita has been in my makeup drawer forever. It’s described as a dusty rose […]

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 […]

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 […]
