Review: Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation in Vanilla I've been playing with this foundation for a while and some of y'all have caught on to this fact and have started pestering me for more information. However, you've had to wait, as it took me a really long time to make my official conclusions about this product. The question was never...
Beauty Bullshit: Ionic Hairdryers Yay4Tay asks, "I am super late to the party (catching up on all your posts), but I would love for you to address how every hair tool ever is now boasting it's modern 'ionic technology!' http://www.numeproducts.com/image/cache/data/anc_marquees/Technology-1020x217-1020x217.jpg My husband says this is the stupidest shit ever, as basically anything using heat is using 'ionic technology' as it basically...
Ipsy October 2016 Review I've officially been subscribed to Ipsy for one year! We've had ups and downs galore. Here's what showed up in my October bag: The bag itself quotes Ralph Waldo Emerson (without citing him): "Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art." I would posit that the corollary is also true: not loving things that...
Review: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics 'Cosmetic Glitter' in Magenta "The herpes of craft supplies" can sometimes be difficult to work into your routine. I got this Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Glitter as a gift, actually, and it sits on my vanity, taunting me with its shininess on a daily basis. "Look how pretty I am!", it says. "TOO BAD ALL I WANT...
Birchbox October 2016 Review It's hard not to love a monthly present in the mail! I even love them when they are mild disappointments, like getting a gift card to Best Buy instead of a check. Hey, at least you can put that card towards a toaster oven! (This philosophy may partially explain why I continue to subscribe to beauty boxes...) Here's...
Review: Darling Girl "Oh The Horror!" Halloween Limited Edition Eyeshadow Collection To start, I want to make a simultaneous apology and not-at-all-an-apology for what was and will continue to be more sporadic posting than y'all are used to. I got a new job (I'm working for Early Head Start) and they wanted me to begin right away, but I had...
Beauty Myths: Should You Be Worried About Mineral Oil? Unknown asks, "Can you do a post on your thoughts on Mineral Oil in skincare? There's lots of debate on if its good or bad for your skin, I'd like to see you science it up." This seems like a great topic for some beauty myth-busting! First of all, what the hell is...
Review: NYX Studio Liquid Liners in Extreme Coffee, Extreme Blue, and Extreme Purple Colored eyeliners can be untrustworthy little buggers. You frequently end up with colors that look like they were mixed with water, formulas that burn your eyes, or imprecise lines that smudge off the moment your eyes water. Luckily, the NYX Studio Liquid Liners exist to kick those crappy...

Long Hair Is a Curse

Long Hair Is a Curse Let me set the scene. I have two guinea pigs. Guinea pigs are supposedly self-cleaning, but my guineas are dumb even by the standards for the species and they have a bad habit of peeing on each other. (They are also afraid of the floor... but I digress.) As a result, they occasionally bring in houseflies...
Review: Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly Housekeeping: I was googling myself... as you do... and I found a bunch of comments about my blog that said things like, "I like her writing, but her blog is so ugly." The latter comment was indisputably true. I am not a talented blog designer, but I think the changes that I made...
