WIN! Benefit BADgal BANG! Mascara, Porefessional P...

Happy VALENTINE’S day bellas! Sorry for the lack of posts recently. It’s been a crazy two weeks for me thus far. My niece and nephew, who are the cutest twins, just turned 1. We celebrated by having a huge party this weekend (70+ people) at my dad’s house and it took a lot out of me. From shopping for decor and theme decorations to planning meals and snacks, the grunt work of actually pulling it off took its toll on me. I’m usually all for being creative and setting up but with the uncertainty of rain, we did a lot…

Happy hump day bellas, I picked up the Dr Brandt Complexion Perfection Kit from Sephora late last year but between having the vampire facial done and going on vacation, I forgot I hadn’t yet tried the magnetic mask. Last night I decided to test it out so I can give you my first impressions. The other products I’ve used quite a bit so I can give you a full review on those. Dr Brandt Complexion Perfection Kit – $34 Even though this set retails for $34, it has a whopping $67 value. There are 5 items contained in the set and…

Brand Focus: LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation, Stro...

Okay so I know this post is loooong overdue. I shared a pic on Instagram of the LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation and Strobe Lite Strobing Powder in Feb and frequently get asked what my thoughts are on it. I decided to gather a few other LA Girl items I’ve not yet featured on my blog just in case you were interested. There are reviews on the Eyeshadow Bricks which so closely resembles the Urban Decay Naked palettes. The Matte Lipsticks which I still enjoy to bits and the Concealers and Correctors which are essential for any makeup artists kit. LA Girl…

Makeup Madness with Maybelline – Blushed Nud...

It’s been weeks since I received this generous press drop from Maybelline and I’ve thoroughly put it to the test. There have been hits and misses and products just down right amazing. Keep on reading if you’d like to find out which ones are worth the spend. Maybelline Master Strobing Stick – R160 This is an affordable formula dupe for the renowned Benefit Watts Up highlighter. The texture is creamy, easily blendable and very pigmented. I don’t particularly like the stick applicator because sometimes it can tug and move the foundation beneath it. It’s also not very hygenic but I…
