Beauty & Makeup

When it comes to palettes, there's plenty of criteria a brand has to meet to blow off my bobby socks. It needs to be luxurious, offer high-quality product, be sleek and travel friendly, provide long-wearing performance, and not break the bank. Virtually unattainable right? Meet the Tarte Park Ave....
Milani Face Eye Strobe Palette Review
The Milani Face and Eye Strobe Palettes drew me in like a moth to flame. The packaging, presentation, and wave-like curvature of the powders make them look lux and ultra-dimensional. Slow clap to the design team. When it came to the product performance 😬 that was a big disappointment....
Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow
2018 is set to be a very good year in the makeup industry. Stila recently launched a metallic liquid eye shadow that will take your makeup game to a whole new level. I'm talking about their Shimmer & Glow liquid eye shadow range and I have to say it...damn,...
You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have…oh wait…that’s the lyrics to an 80’s sitcom. Trust me when I say you will need a good sense of humor and/or a stiff drink to get through this list. The “Worst” products of...
Cover Fx illuminating setting spray
Many brands use the word "Illuminating" loosely, but when Cover FX says it, you know they mean business. The Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray is like no other...and I mean that. From the formula, the mist, and the finish - it's literally angel tears in a beautiful duo chrome...
Givenchy Blush Memoire De Forme Rose Délicat Review
Givenchy Beauty is a premier makeup brand that's usually priced juuuust..a bit out of my league. However, if you read my Luxury Makeup at Below Drugstore Prices post, you'll know that buying premier doesn't mean buying retail. Why break the bank if you don't have to! I was able...
The Balm In The Balm of Your Hand Greatest Hits Vol. 1 Palette Review
If you're not familiar with the makeup brand, The Balm, you really should be. Their packaging is fantastic, incorporating a 50's "pin-up/comic book" era with hilarious tongue-and-cheek catch phrases. It's always a treat pulling their products out of the vanity. Within the last year or so The Balm came...
Cargo Cosmetics Wanderlust Palette Review
While in TJ Maxx the other day I found a rare makeup treasure. $9.99 for a regular $34 - Cargo Cosmetics eyeshadow palette with 12 shades. It's a steal, so I picked it up excitedly and rushed my buggy to the checkout counter. With a crazed twinkle in my...
Esqido False Lash Review
If you're a fan of makeup, then false lashes is your next step to greatness. They can transform a look from "nice" to "wow" in 4 minutes or less. You tell me another makeup product that can do that! So, when I got my hands on the Esqido mink...
Buying high-end makeup at bargain prices is my favorite way to shop. Browsing online stores like eBay (20% off discount code below) and other discount stores are not only fun (well not if you're losing) but also saves a ton of money. Let's face it, $300 of luxury makeup won't...
