FOTD: Bare It All

You may have already seen some pictures of this makeup look in my Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Eyeshadow Palette review. Since I was wearing a full face of makeup, I decided to make a separate post including details of everything else I was wearing. The concealer, foundation, blush, and highlighter featured here have been part of my standard makeup routine for pretty much most of 2015....more

ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in Lumiere

ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in Lumiere - $5 I previously shared with you a review of the ColourPop Eyeshadows I purchased some months ago. When I made that order, my primary focus was getting their Fringe Eyeshadow and Pitch lip color (a supposed dupe for Lime Crime's Salem). I decided I might as well spend $30 to get free shipping so I added some other things to my cart (not a difficult task because they have so many great items.) I ended up adding Lumiere to my cart because I had seen Kathleen's video about it when it got released....more

Muted Pastels: Makeup Look

I was playing around with the eyeshadows I received from Makeup Geek and ended up with this muted pastel green and pink look. I always try to advocate the incorporation of color. After all, makeup can be fun and experimental ....more

MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil

MAC Lip Pencil in Nightmoth - $16 Somehow I got into the habit of posting a lot of makeup looks and FOTD's in a row, which are my favorite types of posts, by the way, but it's nice to mix it up. Several months ago I got one of the more popular vampy lip liner shades around, MAC's Nightmoth. I haven't used it as often as I would like (I've been on a nude lipstick kick) but I love it....more

Summer Makeup and Sun Protection: Neutrogena #ChooseSkinHealth

Disclaimer: This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with NEUTROGENA® and Latina Bloggers Connect. Although the heat has been unbearable, I'm very happy that summer has arrived seeing as I am in need of break once these two weeks of final exams conclude. I have already visited the beach a few times on my off days, but sun protection is important regardless of whether you are at the beach or not ....more

Blog Sale: NARS, MAC, Guerlain, Benefit, Giorgio Armani, Tarte, Clinique, Milani

Hello! Today I'm posting the largest blog sale I've ever held (it's not that big though.) The deal is that I'm moving out so I am in need of both rent money and decluttering. :D I took a look at my makeup collection and decided to part with items that were either repetitive or not getting much use ....more

New Blue Frames from Firmoo

Firmoo Acetate F047 in Blue - $36 This is the third time Firmoo makes an appearance on my blog. I became a fan of their glasses and service ever since I tried my first pair and I have recommended them to both friends and family. The frames and basic lenses are very affordable and so are any additional add ons ....more

Esqido Mink Eyelashes: Lashlorette, Oh So Sweet, Unforgettable

In 2015 I started wearing false lashes more and more often. They make such a difference! Especially for hooded eyes ....more

FOTD: Rose Epicurien

I want to briefly acknowledge my disappearance from social media (apart from Instagram and queued posts on Tumblr). April midterms hit me hard and I've been generally busy with a lot of things. I always hate leaving my blog unattended because I genuinely enjoy updating it frequently and have a lot of products I want to feature on here ....more
