Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

I’m gonna get straight to the point: I don’t like this product. BUT! Your mileage may vary. I bought this product purely because of the packaging. It has a cute person on it with blush and long lashes and dark black bangs. Way to win me over? Give a person dark black bangs. Lol. The tube is a darker and dustier pink than the actual … Continue reading Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lipstick Review

I was really excited to try out the Burt’s Bee’s lipsticks because I’m a huge fan of their products, particularly their lip balms. I bought these about two months ago around the time that I decided to switch to less-toxic makeup. I wanted to make the switch as quickly and conveniently as possible. At $8 each, the Burt’s Bees lipsticks were a relatively affordable and … Continue reading Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lipstick Review

The “Effortless” Cool-Girl Look for Less

Now, don’t get me wrong. I love brands like Glossier and Milk Makeup. They have an “I’m not even trying” vibe that I’ve been identifying with more and more. But $26 to look like you’re not wearing foundation? And another $20 for some added color to your cheeks and lips? It’s just not worth the money to me. That’s not to say that I’ll never … Continue reading The “Effortless” Cool-Girl Look for Less

Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lips- Swatches & First Impressions!

I received the Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips on Monday! I ordered three shades: Tansy, Panda, and Frick N’ Frack. I must say that I’m not really a fan of the names. I think they’ll be a little embarrassing to say when others ask what lipstick I’m wearing.     I got this color on a whim. I had initially chosen Dopey, which was a dusty … Continue reading Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lips- Swatches & First Impressions!

My Favorite YouTubers

I probably spend more time on YouTube than any other website (Reddit is a close second). It’s a big source of my inspiration, and it’s what got me into makeup so long ago. Apparently I’m subscribed to 53 channels! Most of those are comprised of fashion channels, but some of them are about random topics like art history, philosophy, and photography. I’ve listed a few … Continue reading My Favorite YouTubers

Besame Cosmetics Lipstick Swatches+Review

I discovered Besame Cosmetics in 2014. Back then I was in my pinup girl phase, and I was on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick to complete my look. I didn’t like a lot of the red shades I had tried before because they seemed too garish for my skin tone. In case you’ve never heard of Besame Cosmetics, they’re a company that makes reproductions of … Continue reading Besame Cosmetics Lipstick Swatches+Review

MAC ‘Del Rio’ Lipstick Review

 MAC’s lipsticks are some of my favorite. I own a couple of them from their matte line, and I’ve tried some of their cremesheens. However, my favorite formula has to be their satin finish. MAC’s satin lipsticks are semi-matte, so they aren’t as drying as completely matte ones, but they still offer the same amount of pigmentation. Del Rio is described as a “muted plum brown” on MAC’s website. I would’ve never picked … Continue reading MAC ‘Del Rio’ Lipstick Review
