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

Ulta Glitch $55 Haul

Some of the links in my blog are affiliate links, meaning, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase.

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

Kiko Milano Design Flower Blush & Highlighting Drops $15 Shipped

I'm very pleased with my first purchase from Kiko Milano. I've been following the brand on Instagram ever since one of their blushes caught my eye. Kiko Milano, price wise, runs about lower mid range with many of their sale items neatly tucked in to what you might consider drugstore prices. The winner for me … Continue reading Kiko Milano Design Flower Blush & Highlighting Drops $15 Shipped

These are nice, not "revolutionize the makeup tool world" nice but definitely "better than drugstore brands" nice. The synthetic bristles … Continue reading It Cosmetics Travel Sized Brush Kit

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