Makeup Revolution: Fortune Favors the Brave

Ever since Makeup Revolution released its new makeup palette in collaboration with Britishbeautyblogger last year, I was so excited after I watched a video of swatches on Makeup Revolution’s YouTube page of Fortune Favors the Brave. All of the eyeshadows seemed vibrant, highly pigmented, and swatched like a colorful dream. I held back on buying…

Makeup: Past, Present, & Future (Everything Blush)

While eyeshadows, mascara, foundation, and eyeliner create the base for your every day makeup look, it’s blush that adds a bright pop of color and brings life! Today, I’m going to share some of my favorite blushes that I have used in the past, the current blush palette that I am using, and blushes by…

Urban Decay: VICE Junkie Lipstick Palette

It’s my great pleasure to announce that I’ve ventured out of my comfort zone of buying and reviewing eyeshadows, and into the world of lipsticks! I’ve literally been eyeing the Urban Decay: Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette since I’d received a catalog from Ulta in the mail around the fall. Unfortunately, one day when I’d convinced…

BECCA: Shadow & Light Brow Contour Mousse

Ever since I watched one of Jaclyn Hill’s YouTube videos about her collaboration with BECCA Cosmetics, I became curious about the brand. I scrolled through hundreds of pictures on Pinterest of BECCA highlighters, and perused through the websites of Ulta and Sephora looking at highlighter sets and tried to decide whether or not it would…

Makeup: Past, Present & Future (Everything Eyeshadow)

In anticipation of my Sephora order that will be arriving next week, I thought it’d be fun to talk about some of the makeup products that I have purchased in the past, my current makeup, and future makeup products that are either on the way in an order that I’ll review, or on my ultimate…

Benefit Cosmetics: Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel

In my youth, the summer after I graduated from high school, I remember wishing that my sparse eyebrows were fuller. I wasn’t very experienced with makeup, and that day I decided to experiment with the mascara that I already owned. Yes, (If you are thinking what I was thinking at the time) I applied it…

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation

There’s no better feeling than finding the perfect foundation that effortlessly becomes one with your skin, leaving that slightly dewy, natural look, and hiding any minor imperfections. It’s taken me many tries with different foundations and BB Creams to find something flattering that’s hydrating, stays on all day, and doesn’t stick to any dry patches,…

Beyond the Hype: Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette

When I discovered that the Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette was temporarily out of stock on Ulta.com, I let out a deep sigh of disappointment. Months ago, I’d seen it online and thought to myself that I’d just order it later on, because I’d spent too much over the holidays. It turns out,…

NYX Proof It! Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer

When I ran out of product in my travel size Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion tube, I just about cried because it is one of my favorites. While the product does last a good two or three months, it tends to come with a slightly hefty price tag. I did the math, and if…

BRONX COLORS

  Ulta has stolen my heart once again! I should’ve known that years ago, when I’d signed up for my first Ultamate Rewards card, that I’d become a makeup junkie in the future. I’ve found that often, my new hobby is to fiddle with the search tools on Ulta’s website under each category, so I…

What is a Tartelette, Anyways?

Last year, I discovered the allure of the brand Tarte. I’d never paid much attention to it before, but I’d seen the brand on the Ulta website when browsing. My preconceived notion of Tarte was that it was nothing special, and the quality would be the equivalent to every other makeup brand out there. To…

Sephora Mini Birthday Gift

This year, I signed up to be a Sephora Beauty Insider, which is essentially their rewards program. I’d really wanted to buy Too Faced: Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara, so while adding that to my shopping cart, I also was able to choose between mini samples of Fresh skin care, or a Marc Jacobs eyeliner…
