L’oreal Infallible Lipstick: 312 Ravishing Red


I have to admit, I was totally sucked in to get this color after seeing the commercial with Gwen Stefani. I LOVE Gwen, but man, did I laugh at the commercial. I love how she says “because we’re worth it” like she’s going to beat someone up or something hhaah. EVEN though this commercial seems so awkward, that lipstick looks ... Read More »

88 Prism Palette Swatches & Review


88 and 120 palettes are a huge money saver, they’re relatively inexpensive for the amount of color you get, and generally have impressive color payoff for the price. I have used the original and shimmer 88 palettes in the past and found them to have great color payoff and be well worth their price, especially for new makeup lovers who ... Read More »

First Impressions: MAC Peacocky & Cham-pale


I went into MAC today to get some essentials I was out of (Brush cleaner and MAC Wipes, to be exact) and decided to take a peak at the new collections Peacocky and Cham-pale.

First Impressions: Model in a Bottle


I picked these products up at IMATS this year, and totally forgot about them until a few weeks ago. I think Model in a Bottle is worth checking out if you have issues with your makeup staying on throughout the day or if you work somewhere where you don’t really have time for touch ups. Here I am using the ... Read More »

Stila One Step Makeup Review


So this isn’t really a first impressions video considering I tried it before I filmed the video, but oh well. :) REALLY loving this product, especially for those “OMG I have literally 2 seconds to get ready!!” moments. I had a few people asking questions about this that I forgot to put into the video, so here are a few ... Read More »

First Impressions: Covergirl Shadow Blast


Oh man, way behind on blog posts this week!! D: Oh well, forgive me? This week’s First Impressions video was focusing on Covergirl Shadow Blast, which is something a TON of you had requested me to do a First Impression video on. Needless to say if you watch the video, TOTALLY not worth i in my eyes. TONS of better ... Read More »
