Review: Covergirl Smoky Shadow Blasts I used to have a problem with collecting multiples. If I bought a sweater, I would want to buy two of the same sweater so I wouldn't have to worry if I spilled something on one of them. Why find three different tank tops that fit when you can have the same tank in red,...
Random Sample Grab Bag: Perfume Reviews Part 4 Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensée Cologne Absolue Eau de Parfum. $70 for 1.0 fl oz ($70 per fl oz) If Atelier Colognes were less pricy, I would probably own every single one of them. Vanilla is appealing, but simply scent. This interpretation is full of layers, with clear woody, jasmine, and citrus notes. When...
Ipsy November 2016 Review Do my eyes deceive me? Did I receive an ipsy bag that is startlingly badass? Although it seems frivolous to complain about a service that costs $10 a month, I feel an obligation to let you know when things are shitty. The nice converse, though, is that I get to let you know when things are...
Review: Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eyeshadow in Metallic Dusty Rose, Metallic Emerald, and Comex Gold Ideally, when you press the "checkout" button on the Sephora website, you want it to be a celebration. "I WILL HAVE THE MOST SPECTACULAR EYELINER IN ALL OF THE LAND!" you might hypothetically exclaim. "MY LASHES WILL BE AS LONG AND LUSH AS A...
One of the so-called "beauty hacks" that's floating around on the internet is that Milk of Magnesia supposedly makes a fabulous primer for oily skin. There are countless beauty gurus on youtube touting its mattifying tendencies. Bloggers who should really know better are recommending it. Makeup Alley has rated 4.1 out of 5 with 367 reviews. Dear internet people: please...
I not-that-recently-but-recently-enough-that-I-considered-using-recently-as-an-adverb-here received a sample of Guerlain's 'Cils d'Enfer' Maxi Lash Mascara. Actually, I received a ton of samples of it, and I've been slowly working through them with the diligence expected of someone who is weirdly obsessed with cosmetic formulas. Guerlain's new Maxi Lash formula is seriously impressive. First of all, before we even get into how it makes...
Let's keep this short and sweet. Here's what I got in my Birchbox this month: Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner (0.04oz), approximate retail value $9.14 The Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner is one of my favorite eyeliners and I am borderline annoyed at Birchbox for robbing me of my ability to do a full review. (Since I also own a mini, I went...
Tis the season for blatant consumerism... and what better way to celebrate than to determine the best way to purchase makeup you don't really need for slightly discounted prices?! More information about my methods and my suggestions for using this guide are available on my original Sephora Value Set Guide, which you can find by clicking here. This guide contains Sephora's...
There are certain things that shouldn't be shaped like Valentines. Tampons. Junk mail. Your Toenails. Blush, though? Blush should definitely be shaped for romance. Although there is something covetable and romantic about the heart-shaped container, I actually don't think that the packaging is very well-designed. The blush container is cardboard, which seems a little low-end for a thirty dollar blush....
I've talked previously about Kat Von D's incredibly inappropriate and offensive product shade names. Happily, Sephora and Kat Von D have received a small portion of the backlash that they rightly deserved for their terrible, terrible judgment thanks to a group of advocates who discovered the "Celebutard" lipstick. (Ugh.) Actress Lauren Potter, best known for playing Becky Jackson on Glee,...
