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

Laura Geller – Most Loved, Least Talked About

Nobody talks about Laura Geller and I wish more people would. The Balance N Brighten in Medium is my everyday contour shade. It's so smooth and blends in so nicely. The mini will last me YEARS. The new Baked Gelato Swirl in Diamond Dust free with purchase sample that I received from Ulta is my … Continue reading Laura Geller – Most Loved, Least Talked About

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

September Boxycharm – 2nd Box 2nd Snafu

September Boxycharm time. Although this box was pretty meh for me, it's still near impossible to beat for the cost. My palette arrives with 2 pans smashed. After 2 emails to Boxycharm, the second after which they asked for a picture of the palette next to the shipping box, they credited my Boxycharm account with … Continue reading September Boxycharm – 2nd Box 2nd Snafu

August Boxycharm – My 1st Box!

I had a weird snafu with my first Boxycharm subscription box. I placed my order and immediately after entering my credit card information I received an error page indicating something went wrong. I waited a few hours, watched my inbox for a confirmation email, looked at my newly made account and received no indication that … Continue reading August Boxycharm – My 1st Box!

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 am neither light/medium nor tan/deep but these colors spoke to me. The base color in the light/medium palette is a perfect match for my … Continue reading Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette X2

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

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

Blush Tour 7/24/2017

I have a love/hate relationship with blush. Even back in the 90s I wasn't a fan of the heavy sunburned cheeks look. 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
