Lush Snow Fairy Set

I always miss the Lush Boxing Day Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale. I'm not about to spend $10 for a bath bomb no matter how great everyone tells me they are. Every year I miss it either because I lose track of time or they sell out. NOT THIS YEAR! Smart consumer fail. I … Continue reading Lush Snow Fairy Set

Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Vol 2 – Artistic

I was feeling pretty left out of the Sephora additional 20% off the already discounted sale items *Sale On Sale* event. The biggest hoopla was over the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette that was on sale for $26 (reg $42) but I already have that so pfffft. I settled on this Make Up For Ever … Continue reading Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Vol 2 – Artistic

BoxyCharm Limited Edition Box

Subscription box controversy alert! Boxycharm announced their first ever Limited Edition box in November. At a cost of $44.95 this box was to have 8 items with a total value of over $200. Initially this box was supposed to be released to subscribers first with the left overs offered to the general public. Through snafu or through … Continue reading BoxyCharm Limited Edition Box

December Allure Box

Best. Box. Ever. But I'm still canceling my Allure box subscription. The website interface is atrocious and you have to jump through hoops to cancel (so many that I've been too lazy to do it since last month), but man was this box good! Edited to add: the preview of January's box is at the … Continue reading December Allure Box

Wayne Goss 2017 Holiday Brush

I'm finding myself wanting to invest less money on actual makeup products and more money on brushes and tools that are great quality and will last me many years hopefully. I knew immediately that I would pick up this $45 Wayne Goss 2017 Holiday brush from Beautylish. Basically it boils down to the fact that I … Continue reading Wayne Goss 2017 Holiday Brush

Mascara Mayhem

Goodbye 2017! Here are all of the mascaras in my collection. I approximate that they are about 6 months old and ready for the trash so I thought I'd give a mini review of the ones I loved and the ones I hated. I apply mascara almost every day. I wear glasses and have dark … Continue reading Mascara Mayhem

Kevyn Aucoin ElectroPop Palette

Here's another sad story. This palette is going back to Sephora,  This will be the 2nd time in my entire life that I have returned a beauty/makeup product. The 1st was this Becca highlighter. It's not that it's bad, it just isn't what I expected. These look like shimmer/glitter powder shadows to me, I can't … Continue reading Kevyn Aucoin ElectroPop Palette

December Boxycharm

Ugh. Here's my Boxycharm experience. Box 1 (September): Double charged, contacted them and they refunded my money for 1 box very quickly. Box 2 (October): Pur Palette arrived broken, they added 1000 points to my account (worth $10) after asking me to send verification pictures twice. Box 3 (November): Never arrived. They informed me it … Continue reading December Boxycharm

Dose Of Colors Mint For You

I'm not ashamed to admit that I bought these Dose of Colors products mainly because they were 40% off. I LOVE the minty colored packaging, but really, these aren't particularly fantastic products. The eye crayon in Hint Of Mint is a beautiful, vibrant, opaque icy blue but it's also  chunky and tugs as you apply. I … Continue reading Dose Of Colors Mint For You
