I Spent HOW Much Money At Sephora?!: An Introduction to VIB Rouge Apparently, Sephora has some high-spending customers that they are vaguely trying to cater to. Until now, anyone could become a Beauty Insider, and spending $350 in one calendar year made you a "VIB". Sephora just launched their "VIB Rouge" program for people who spend $1000 a year at...
Are All Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primers Equally Crappy? My eyeshadow primer mega-comparison showed that Urban Decay Primer Potion doesn't live up to the hype. I speculated that its cult following stems more from its accessibility and Urban Decay's intelligently-done promotion of the product than from its raw priming power. However, my mega-comparison method included only the original formula of the primer....
Review: Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation in Light 44 You know how Sephora has that evil lighting where you can see pimples but your makeup is shrouded in mystery? It's easy to convince yourself that something will work for you in that lighting. I asked for a sales associate to match me to both the Kat Von D concealer...
Cosmetics Company History: Vaseline and the Chesebrough Manufacturing Company At risk of sounding like a corporate shill (or perhaps to counter my numerous negative or neutral reviews), I have decided to describe the history of those companies that have a relatively non-boring story. Unfortunately, I am starting off on a really bad note, since Vaseline is definitely a product, not...

Ipsy July 2016 Review

Ipsy July 2016 Review Oh, Ipsy. I know you're trying. Well, I don't know. But I assume. Still, your alleged effort seems to be consistently for naught. Another month, another bag of junk. As per usual, WOW this clear, pink, plastic bag is unbelievably tacky. It would look at home filled with Lisa Frank merchandise. Not to mention: Why are you getting here...
Review: Miscellaneous Shiro Eyeshadows The last time I reviewed a product from an indie company, the owner of company took to facebook to write about how my makeup is bad, my reviews are bad, and I should feel bad. (My review wasn't even particularly negative.) As a result, I just kind of decided to stick to products that are popular...
A Guide to Sephora's Summer 2016 Makeup Value Sets I love value sets. Trying out a ton of teensy tiny new products is always more fun for me than buying one big product. Sephora has a great selection of these value sets. Unfortunately, it can be quite challenging to wade your way through them. They're not organized, they're not condensed,...
Review: Paul & Joe Limited Edition Eye Color in La Belle Epoque Paul & Joe packaging is easy to swoon over. As clothing designers, the heads at Paul & Joe know how to make a lustworthy visual. Their limited edition eye colors are certainly no exception. Although the outside is suitably lovely, it's the inside that charms the socks off of...
I See Your Crappy Disney Makeup And Raise You... Note: This post was made by request, meaning you are not allowed to roll your eyes at me. On the 14th, XOJane published an article called "How To: Disney Princess Inspired Makeup For Grownups". Unfortunately, I think that this article was a huge missed opportunity. First of all, instead of trying to do...
Birchbox July 2016 Review I need to stop watching tracking information. It'll be good for my blood pressure. Now, I watch my tracking info like a hawk, and it's frequently quite baffling. "WHAT ARE YOU STILL DOING IN PASCO?!" I find myself screaming at the computer. Luckily, my Birchbox did finally make its merry way into my grasp. Here's what it...
