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

I have seen a few creators doing these mid year favourites, mostly Michele Wang and a few others in the beauty space.

Now, I want to note that some of these products are from brands that are problematic or have … Read More Mid Year Beauty Favourites

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

I have a few goals for this project and far warning, the work dip will make an appearance in each explanation. This project will end on Oct 15. Just … Read More Project Pan Roulette: Intro

Products Worth the Splurge

I did a post last year (eek) about products I’m not willing to splurge on. I wanted to do another one about products I am willing to splurge on and why they are worth it. I get it, spending $45 on a blush is wild, it is, but I will say with no shame that I have spent that amount of money on a … Read More Products Worth the Splurge

It’s that time of year in the beauty world where we discuss items we want to try and finish. Also, my project pan finales are coming! Stay tuned! For today, I wanted to discuss two palettes I’d like to put a dent in throughout 2019. I want to focus on two palettes, both because I get bored easily and because I like options.
