Too much of a good thing?

Too much of a good thing?

A few months ago my skin was super dry. I’d seen a few Youtubers raving about L’oreal Lumi foundation but at the time I’d just spent $45.00 on some Stila foundation. I knew Matt would not be happy about me wanting to try something else. I was chatting with my mom one day and she mentioned she had some Lumi that she’d bought and only used a few times. The next time I saw her she gave me the Lumi…

Scrub a dub dub

Scrub a dub dub

Since this has turned into a beauty blog, I’d like to share a new product I found at Ulta.  It’s the Freeman Facial Polishing Mask with Charcoal and Black Sugar.  I stumbled across this a few weeks ago but I wanted to try it out a few times before I reviewed it.  I’ve used it several times over the past few weeks and I’m impressed!  For $3.99, this stuff is GREAT!  I try to use it about 2x a week…

No Primer, No Problem!

No Primer, No Problem!

As you all know, I’ve recently become OBSESSED with make-up tutorials on Youtube.  Well, I have a few of my faves, but I also have a few others that I will occasionally check out.  GossMakeupArtist is one I occasionally watch.  Last week he posted a GREAT tip on how to make your foundation last.  Seeing as I’ve been having foundation issues, I wanted to know what his tip was. Now, before I go into exactly what you do, I just…

A New fave (yup another mascara post)

A New fave (yup another mascara post)

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write a post about mascara! A while back I wrote about my current favorite mascara, Revlon Lash Potion.  This stuff is pretty wonderful but it’s waterproof, like really waterproof.  Honestly I don’t really mind if my mascara doesn’t fully wash off at night.  I personally think you should wear mascara 24/7 but there comes a time when not washing off starts to make the next day’s mascara all clumpy.  I started…

I went to the MAC counter

I went to the MAC counter

God help us all, or really just Matt’s check book! 😉 I’ve had a lot of makeup posts lately and it’s because I have recently become obsessed with makeup tutorials on youtube.  I’ll list a few of my fave channels at the bottom.  Anyway, they’ve sparked this new found interest/obsession with all things makeup.  Mostly though, I’m still looking for “the” foundation.  My Stila is still doing okay but my skin has changed and I no longer find I am…

Two weeks ago I went on a little MK shopping spree.  I bought eye cream, moisturizer, and a microderm kit.  My old skin care routine just wasn’t cutting it so when someone on IG mentioned they were using MK products I decided to give them another try.  A long time ago, when I was still living in AL, my mom and I started using MK products.  We both really liked them, but at the time, it was a little difficult…

Oh Bobbi….

Oh Bobbi….

Before Christmas, I booked a “makeover” at the Bobbi Brown counter. Even after the disastrous foundation debacle I wanted to see what a pro could do. I was able to book a 4:30 appt on Friday the 20th. I get to the mall early and walk around for a few minutes. I pass by the Bobbi Brown store and notice it seems eerily empty but I’m early so I head to Belk for a few minutes. About 10 minutes before…

I’m not sold

A couple weeks ago while getting my haircut I asked my stylist about makeup.  She does hair and makeup on the side so I figured she would be a good person to talk to about foundation.  I told her what I was looking for and she hands down recommended Bobbi Brown.  I went to the Bobbi Brown website and found her Skin Foundation.  With almost 600 reviews and a 4.7 star rating I knew I had to try this.  The…

You know I love mascara right? Well I do! I’ve always had pretty eyelashes and I want my mascara to make them look even better. For months now, Loreal’s Power Volume Collagen mascara has been my go to. You can find my review here.  A few weeks ago mom and I were out shopping and we ran to Ulta.  She wanted something to make her eyelashes grow and in the process we found Revlon’s Lash Potion mascara.  I grabbed a tube…

A few months ago I posted about my new Clinique BB Cream.  You may remember my review was not great.  Like I really wanted to take it back I was not pleased.  So now I’m here to say that maybe my first review was a bit harsh.  I don’t think I really gave it a chance.  I had an idea of what I thought it should be and when it turned out to be different I automatically didn’t like it….
