Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighters & Ombre Blush

This was part of my Walgreen's haul purchased with points. The MegaGlo Highlighters and the Ombre Blush are both regularly $4.99. The highlighters are definitely on the stiff and dry side. They apply nicely with a fluffy synthetic brush and I would put them at the top of the list for drugstore highlighters. I really … Continue reading Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighters & Ombre Blush

Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette X2

Stila does not get enough love. Their packaging is always so beautifully luxurious and while their regular prices are mid range, when on sale, can fall directly into drugstore territory.

I've never really used a cream blush … Continue reading theBalm How ‘Bout Them Apples? Palette

Blush Tour 7/24/2017

Slowly I've started experimenting with a bit of it here and there, trying to figure out which colors I like best and working on placement. Favorite: Fiona Stiles Soft Cheek Veil in Sweetwater. … Continue reading Blush Tour 7/24/2017


I'm working on reorganizing my makeup area. I've come to the realization that if I can't see it, I won't use it. Putting things neatly in drawers just ends with me never touching it again and that makes me sad. Currently I'm trying to amass the Sephora $1 ABH empty 4 pan palettes and moving … Continue reading Organizing
