Yay! I’m so proud. Only a few days late to the game for this blog post. I have curated a new makeup stash for the month of February. Definitely there is a pink theme happening here and I am pretty pumped to use a lot of these products.  First: the repeat offenders. My Glossier concealer, skin tint, and Kiehl’s primer as well as some … Read More February Shop My Stash

January 2021. I cannot believe that we are one month into the year. Still single. Still somewhat thriving. Still trying not to buy makeup to fill the void and trying to save money so i’m trying to implement less impulse shopping. This month I am actually really proud that I used everything that was in my shop my stash and did not stray. Of … Read More January Favourites 2021

Products in my stash this month

I tried this last year, and it clearly did not become the series I wanted it to be on this blog rather I posted a photo on Instagram and never did an accompanying blog post so it appears. When the pandemic hit, similar to other folks I know in my life, I bought a lot of shit that I did not need, as did … Read More Products in my stash this month

Hero Products in My Collection

The products I’ve loved in the past year has really changed. As I get older I am trying to be sure that I have products in my collection that I actually want to use, and (failing miserably) getting away from buying products I know I will declutter in the future. I wanted to curate a list of my no fail products that I have … Read More Hero Products in My Collection

Beauty to Buy When My No Buy is Done

As you may or may not know, I am a beauty no buy and ideally I’m trying to buy as little beauty products as I can until November when the V.I.B Sale. A part of this is because I am moving soon so I need to save money, and I have to buy adult things like a couch and a dining room table and … Read More Beauty to Buy When My No Buy is Done

How my Makeup Taste has Changed

When I started this blog, it was not a beauty blog or a lifestyle blog. It was a blog where I ranted, and talked about running, and talked about things I liked such as TV, but somewhere along the way it morphed into a beauty blog, featuring mostly affordable makeup with few high end products. I started this blog as a university, spending student … Read More How my Makeup Taste has Changed

Makeup Starter Kit based on YOU

Awhile ago on Instagram I polled what your preferences would be in certain makeup categories. The overall finding was that people were willing to spend in two areas: eyeshadow palettes and foundations. I don’t know what this attributed to the income bracket and who my following is. I will admit that the majority of people that follow me are white, and they are able … Read More Makeup Starter Kit based on YOU

Top 5 Highlighters

I think what I am known for is my extreme passion for highlighting my cheekbones. My cheekbones are something I like to highlight. I don’t really know why because my cheekbones have no real need to be shiny, but I just enjoy that highlighter makes me feel like a million bucks. My highlighter taste has definitely changed throughout my years of doing my own … Read More Top 5 Highlighters

Fenty Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette Review

The Fenty Moroccan Spice palette has really not gotten much hype. I don’t really understand why. I wanted to review this palette because ever since I bought it, I’ve been able to create various looks with it, and have found it to transcend any occasion.  A bit about the palette according to Fenty’s website: |An eyeshadow palette of 16 longwearing Moroccan-inspired shades ranging from … Read More Fenty Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette Review

Bobbi Brown Brand Focus

Back in December I outlined 12 brands I wanted to try in 2020. I took to Instagram to ask the people what they would like to see, and by a landslide, Bobbi Brown won against Em Cosmetics. I’ve been toying with how exactly I am going to purchase from brands, whether that be by only getting best sellers or getting 4-5 items from each … Read More Bobbi Brown Brand Focus

IT Cosmetics CC Cream Illumination: Review

The IT Cosmetics CC Cream is an iconic product. My mom loves it, influencers love it, but I wanted to get the illumination version. I read an article quite a while ago that a beauty editor wrote who said that when she wears this CC Cream and people always comment on how healthy and glowing her skin looks. I was sold. I promptly went … Read More IT Cosmetics CC Cream Illumination: Review
