Lip Declutter

This is my starting point. I generally don't buy lip products. I'd say 90% of what I have were gifts with purchase, from subscription boxes or from Ulta/Sephora sample bags. If I paid cash for it, it was at an extremely deep discount (thanks r/MUAontheCheap). In an effort to get comfortable with my lips and … Continue reading Lip Declutter

Butter London Sheer Wisdom Lip Oil

This is a pretty interesting product, especially for a lipstick hater like myself. I hate wearing anything on my lips even lip balm. The only thing I've used consistently and really like is the YSL Oil In Stick Lip balm that I reviewed here. This Butter London lip oil in Ballet Blush was part of … Continue reading Butter London Sheer Wisdom Lip Oil

theBalm How ‘Bout Them Apples? Palette

Well, this is the cutest thing ever. Generally I like theBalm's aesthetic although their products are a hit or miss for me.  While wandering the beauty aisle at Burlington Coat Factory I did find quite a few of the How 'Bout Them Apples? cheek and lip cream palette. I've never really used a cream blush … Continue reading theBalm How ‘Bout Them Apples? Palette


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

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea II, Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette & LE Lip Duo

This was my first ever Tarte purchase, can you believe it? I haven't really been tempted since the reviews Tarte gets vary widely and none of their gimicky releases ever caught my eye. The sale prices certainly did though. Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette $17.85 Regular $42 Limited-Edition Lip Treats Lip Sculptor Duo $7.65 Regular $12 … Continue reading Tarte Rainforest of the Sea II, Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette & LE Lip Duo

Clinique All Stars 6 pc Set

    A few days ago I posted a deal to the MUAontheCheap sub on Reddit (full disclosure: I am a mod of the sub) and I just got it in yesterday. This is probably one of the best deals of the summer and I wish I would've ordered more before it sold out. Clinique … Continue reading Clinique All Stars 6 pc Set

Stila Liquid Lip, Magnificent Metals + More

Ulta X Nars GWP

Here is the Ulta x Nars GWP that was available for 4 hours earlier this month with a purchase of $50+. Ulta has several of these GWP type deals throughout the month but I jumped on this one right away as I figured it would sell out quickly, and it did. The packaging is the … Continue reading Ulta X Nars GWP
