Review: Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Pink Souffle

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Pink Souffle - $13 I love liquid lipsticks because of their matte finish and longevity. They don't transfer so they are great for special events or nights out. I already own one shade from the Sephora Cream Lip Stain range and decided to get another because I was very impressed with it ....more

Review: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #5

Even though NARS Sheer Glow is still my favorite foundation, I will occasionally try other formulas to see if there's something I like just as much. Since I already own wonderful matte formulas (like the MAC Pro Longwear and MUFE Mat Velvet+) and Sheer Glow offers a natural satin finish, I was looking for something along the lines of a dewy finish. Practically every review of the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($62) is a positive one so I decided to try ....more

Blue Sabbath: Makeup Look

Due to the recent security breach at Lime Crime Cosmetics, plus the fact that the color was always sold out, I have given up on trying to obtain their Salem Velvetine Lipstick. I even ordered it from Urban Outfitters only to have them notify me that it was backordered and later cancel the order. So I've been trying to find some dupes for that color ever since ....more

6,000 Readers International Giveaway

I wanted to host a giveaway back in October 2014 when my blog turned two years old but was extremely consumed by a lot of things and never got the chance. Better late than never, right? Here is my way of saying thank you for supporting my blog, sending me kind messages, posting encouraging comments, and simply reading what I have to say ....more

Review: Lime Crime Chinchilla Lipstick

Lime Crime Lipstick in Chinchilla ($18): I had always wanted a grey lipstick but it wasn't something that was a priority on my to-buy list. I needed to spend $15 more dollars in order to get free shipping at Urban Outfitters so I said "Why not?" and put Chinchilla on my cart. I'm glad I did because I ended up liking this a lot ....more

Valentine's Pleasure Model

I hope I am able to post several Valentine's Day themed makeup looks just like I did last year. For now here's a neutral, soft pink look. It's very daytime but easily transferable into night ....more

New Skincare at the Drugstore: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream and Water Gel

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel* - $17 to $20 Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Cream* (for dry skin) I was sent these two moisturizers from Neutrogena to test out two weeks ago and now want to share my opinions with you. I hadn't been this excited about a drugstore skincare launch in a long time. As I've mentioned before, I prefer moisturizers in gel formulations ....more

Face of the Day: Mandarin Lips

I've started to switch up my foundations recently not due to a change in climate, but because I'm almost out of my go-to NARS Sheer Glow. And to add insult to injury, the pump broke so I need to order a new one at some point. On the plus side it has allowed me to put my other foundations to use, but I came to realize that nothing comes close to Sheer Glow for me ....more
