EOS Crystal Lip Balm – Vanilla Orchid

Here's a quick and simple review. This stuff's great! Follow me on Instagram and Twitter This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through these links helps support this website. Just kidding... but it really is great. It's pretty and feels very hydrating without being thick and greasy. The scent is a bakery vanilla but goes away pretty quickly … Continue reading EOS Crystal Lip Balm – Vanilla Orchid

October Allure Beauty Box

Welp. I signed up for another box. The Allure Beauty Box. I really have a love hate relationship with these things. I always end up giving the samples away to friends and family, which is great and all but... that's $10-$15 I could've spent elsewhere. I've committed to seeing how much of this box and … Continue reading October Allure Beauty Box

Natasha Denona Holiday Limited Edition Joya & Aeris Palettes

You can have these when you pry them from my cold dead hands.  I considered buying backups, but that's dumb (isn't it??). Here are the Natasha Denona Limited Edition 2017 Holiday palettes Joya  and Aeris (with the icey blue). They are $48 each and contain 5 pans totaling 2.26 grams of product which is the … Continue reading Natasha Denona Holiday Limited Edition Joya & Aeris Palettes

Nars Man Ray Veil Cheek Palette

I'm sad to say that this Nars Man Ray Veil cheek palette might go back to Sephora. It's beautiful. Smooth and lovely but both the bronzer and the highlight are too dark for my skin tone. The blush is lightly pigmented and gorgeous though. I had considered using the highlight as a bronzer but it … Continue reading Nars Man Ray Veil Cheek Palette

My Morning Skin Care Routine

My mother instilled in me the importance of taking care of my skin from an early age. I didn't get makeup like most of my Junior High friends, I got night cream and sunscreen. Back then I was less than thrilled, but now that I'm in my 40's, I couldn't BE more thankful (said in … Continue reading My Morning Skin Care Routine

theBalm Nude’tude & Nude Dude

$8. $8 each. No one can complain about that. Charming Charlie had theBalm products on sale for buy 1 get 1 free and offered $10 off your first purchase as well. So, these ended up being about $8 a piece including shipping. I'm not mad at you Charming Charlie and theBalm. These are not my … Continue reading theBalm Nude’tude & Nude Dude

Garnier Aloe Refreshing Cream Cleanser

I've been using the Garnier SkinActive Aloe Refreshing Cleanser that I received free from BzzAgent (not a referral link) for about 2 weeks now and have a few thoughts. I have combination skin with some dry patches and live in a desert climate so hydration is very important to me. I use this cleanser as my … Continue reading Garnier Aloe Refreshing Cream Cleanser

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

Sephora Eye Shadow Haul

Let's just cut to the chase. I liked these Sephora eye shadows a lot more than I thought I would! They do not have a lot of kick up, they blend easily and are much softer than they look. The silver (Diamonds Are Forever) is the best silver I've ever owned. These are definitely worth taking … Continue reading Sephora Eye Shadow Haul
