Hey everyone! So I’ve been terrible about keeping up with the monthly empties posts. I don’t know if it’s just that the months go too fast or there are just too many that build up. If you follow my blog, you can tell I do empties posts pretty religiously. I’m doing a lot of phasing out of older products (that are still usable of course) from my stash or just getting rid of products, period. This is a combined empties post for September and October so I can actually catch up. I might make empties a bi-monthly thing from now on since I fall behind way too often. So here they are:
I had an itch to expand my foundation collection recently. It’s been a while since I’ve had more mid/high-end foundation (I’ve been so satisfied with L’Oreal Infallible), but felt it was time to branch out again. Last year I tried some foundation samples that were nice, just not quite what I was looking for so I put my search on pause.
I’ve had my eye on the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara (9.99 at Ulta) for a little bit since it was getting so much hype, but in addition to that L’Oreal is hands down one of my favorite mascara brands. I am in love with their Telescopic and Voluminous mascaras so when I heard about Lash Paradise, well you know that was going to make it into my stash at some point! This review is based on having tried it a handful of times since I pretty much just bought it last week. Naturally I found myself comparing this mascara to the other L’Oreal ones I have. I got mine in the shade blackest black which is my usual mascara shade preference. Continue reading “L’Oreal Lash Paradise First Impression/Review”
Hey Friends! Summer has officially started and I’m back to my blogging ways! Teaching is over for a bit and though you’d think I’d welcome days off with open arms, it does take a few days for me to get into the summer rhythm. I’m sure I’ll get over it though!
Disclosure: This product was sent to me for free. All opinions are my own.
I’m reviewing the Even Deeper Cleansing Oil by International Face Station.I’ve always been a little weary of using oils on my face even though they’re supposed to be OK for different skin types (I get oily for the record).I’ve tried different brands before and stopped just because I didn’t see any benefits but who knows if I was even using them correctly.Since receiving this, I’ve become more interested in how they are actually used. Cleansing oils can be used alone or in conjunction with another cleanser of your choice (double-cleansing I guess is the official term). Anyway, here are details about the product: Continue reading “Even Deeper Cleansing Oil by International Face Station”
Hey friends! I was able to get my hands on the four products I’ve been wanting from my last On My Radar post. I didn’t get all of these at once but over the course of the last two months. Most of these are higher-end except for the Milani. I don’t frequently buy more expensive items but have no problem dropping more if I personally think I’ll like something or just want that luxury feel here and there! I’ve had these for a little now, so at this point I wanted to follow up and share my thoughts! Continue reading “Wish List/On-My-Radar Product Reviews!”
Hey guys! April and May have been pretty inconsistent for my blog-I have been zoning in at work, mom stuff-baby boy just turned 3 so we had a little party for him, and…who really knows?! Life.
But back to the topic- brows. I didn’t always do my brows as part of my makeup routine unless it was for special events, but now I can’t imagine NOT doing them! Brows have become part of my daily routine. I’ve mainly used pencils in the past but have wanted to try different forms of brow products (pomade, brow gel/tint, powders…I love to play after all!) and I wanted to share current brow products that I’ve been enjoying so far and a little about how I use each. This post will focus on the colored brow products I use most. Continue reading “Current Favorite Brow Products!”
Hey everyone! So l recently decided that some of my foundations were just a tad too warm for this time of year- not by much, but could be a little lighter. I’m no stranger to mixing foundations together to get to the shade I need, even if they’re different brands. But I usually do this in the summer when I need it darker and not the other way around. Instead of buying a lighter foundation this time, I wanted to try drops or mixers that would adjust my foundation. This seemed like more of a straight shot and less guesswork, the idea of using something more concentrated that would work with most liquids.
Hey there, Beauts! Happy MARCH! We (kinda) made it through winter and spring is sounding really good right now! Good thing it’s right around the corner.
In today’s post I want to share with you the neutral/nude palettes I ended up getting towards the end of last year. If you’ve been following my blog, you may remember that a few months ago I was trying to decide between a couple. I was looking to get some new palettes because I had a meh palette that was way old and I was over it basically, and I really didn’t have many others unless you count quads or duos. All the pretty new palettes were calling my name. Continue reading “Recent Eyeshadow Palette Purchases and Thoughts”
