Beauty Bullshit: LaFace Laboratories PUR Purifying Facial Wash LaFace Laboratories PUR Purifying Facial Wash is an overwhelmingly expensive face wash that charges $48 a pop. Part of the reason it is so pricey is because of its supposed skincare benefits. According to Birchbox, "Copper encourages collagen production and skin regeneration, while gluconic acid and eliminates harmful micro-organisms and lemon peel oil cleanses...
The Too Faced Summer Eyes palette walks the perfect line between wearable and funky. These are not the kind of colors one might find in a neutral palette, but they aren't so off-the-wall that you can't wear them someplace nice. The packaging is a little bit tacky, but it definitely reminds me of summer, and the metal is solid and...
I Don't Know What Your Sexy Facebook Profile Picture Says About Your Competency, and Neither Does the University of Oregon "The Price of Sexy: Viewers’ Perceptions of a Sexualized Versus Nonsexualized Facebook Profile Photograph" coming out of Oregon State University is being published in Psychology of Popular Media Culture. A study called "The Price of Sexy"? Time for a disproportionate amount...
Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown Those of you who lurk here frequently probably know that I don't have a lot of eyebrow hair. I have the kind of brows that make brow-grooming ladies say, "Well, I don't know what to do about all these weird bald spots…" Luckily, I know what to do about my weird bald...
Julep September 2017 Review As per usual, I opted to upgrade my Julep Maven box this month (using points rather than cash; I would not upgrade if I had to pay to do so!), turning what would have been a small $20/$25 box into an unnecessarily gigantic collection of nail and beauty products that I can barely manage to even...
Ipsy September 2017 Review Month. September. One of those. Oh god. Please forgive my lateness. I don’t know why I am so short on time these days. Judging by the dust bunnies, I clearly can’t blame the time I have been spending cleaning. Stuff Ipsy sent me a super long time ago: Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser with Cucumber and Watercress...
Birchbox September 2017 Review Pretend it's a month ago. This was my Birchbox!: I got stuff!: Macadamia Professional Healing Oil Spray (travel size at 2 fl oz), retail value $14.50 I'm still waiting on a genie in a lamp to deliver some magic "healing" hair ingredients. This spray consists mostly of water and fractionated coconut oil ("Capric/Caprylic Triglyceride") held in an emulsion by an...
PopSugar Must Have September 2017 Review Subscription boxes are a little bit like gambling. At $40 a month, PopSugar Must Have is slightly higher stakes gambling. Here was the payout in September: Tilo Modal Graduation Scarf in Raisin, retail value $125 This scarf was definitely the "feature item" of this box. There were a couple of colors that were sent out, and I...
Sephora released their annual $10 Black Friday deals on Pinterest earlier this week (you can see their album here), but I only managed to catch them today. Happy Thanksgiving, procrastinators! If you're trying to decide which items are a good deal, I have organized them from best to worst value. Unlike previous years, all items have a calculable value, meaning...
