Jouer Essential High Coverage Creme Foundation

I'm always up for a foundation fest, even though I tend to stick with BB creams and lightweight foundations. First & foremost, a big high five to Jouer for the great 50 shade range (it's not 45 shades of light either)! Sample packs are available for the cost of shipping ($6.80 for me) in ranges … Continue reading Jouer Essential High Coverage Creme Foundation

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

Milk Makeup Watermelon Brightening Serum

The Watermelon Brightening Serum from Milk Makeup has been on my radar since it came out. I'm a sucker for anything watermelon so this really peaked my interest. Regularly priced at $36 this was definitely far out of my price range for an untried product from a company that I know nothing about. Hoorah for … Continue reading Milk Makeup Watermelon Brightening Serum

Influenster/Clairol Root Touch Up

I received this product for free from Influenster. I've received a few free boxes from Influenster since I signed up about 5 months ago. I haven't blogged about them because, well, I wasn't going to subject you to photos of canned corn, dog toys and margarine. If you're not aware, Influenster is a company that … Continue reading Influenster/Clairol Root Touch Up

Ulta Glitch $55 Haul

Some days you just get lucky! It was thanks to BeautyDealsBff and MUAontheCheap that I learned of the Ulta glitch that was allowing a Premium GWP which was intended for those spending over $150 to  be added to smaller orders. After much trial and error, experimenting with different combinations of GWPs, I finalized this order at … Continue reading Ulta Glitch $55 Haul

Kat Von D Shade & Light Glimmer Palette

I purchased the Shade & Light Glimmer palette for $29 (reg $48) with free shipping from the Kat Von D website. I've never used any Kat Von D products so I thought this might be a good place to start. I placed my order on 1/21/2018 and received it on 1/25/2018. The Glimmer is the sister … Continue reading Kat Von D Shade & Light Glimmer Palette

Natasha Denona Diamond & Blush Palette (Darya AND Citrus!)

I knew the second I saw these palettes on Instagram that I would get at least one of them. They were launching on the Sephora website, , and Beautylish.  If you've hung out with me for awhile, you'll know that I always chose to purchase from Beautylish if the prices are comparable. Their packaging is unparalleled and … Continue reading Natasha Denona Diamond & Blush Palette (Darya AND Citrus!)
