MAC Wash & Dry Haul & Swatches

MAC Wash & Dry Delicates Studio Sculpt Bronzing Powder, Colour Matters Technakohl Eyeliner

I don’t know about you but I love me some summer collections. They’re always so bright, shimmery and bold. Just what I like! Unfortunately, every summer collection can’t be stellar, though. Take this year’s MAC Wash & Dry collection for example. I loved the packaging but the product lineup left me a little underwhelmed. Can you believe I’m actually still contemplating ordering a lipstick?!

Saturday Morning Skincare

Chanel Lait Confort Cleansing Milk

If you follow me on Snapchat, then you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been wearing more makeup lately. Usually, I’d just fill in my brows, toss on some liner,  lashes and lipstick. And if I have a few extra minutes I’ll add some BB Cream and a highlight. Lately though, I’ve been full faced Fancie. Foundation, concealer, highlight, contour. The whole nine! Of course, I don’t do it daily partly because I’m still kinda lazy but mostly because I like to give my skin a break.

That’s all a girl could ask for! Last week, I did a quick roundup of my Too Faced Melted Metallic Lipstick stash so I thought, “Why not do a Rebel Bloom lipstick round up this Friday?”

Marc Jacobs Midnight in Paris Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Review

Marc Jacobs Midnight in Paris Highliner Gel Eye Crayon

Like most makeup junkies, I have like a million eyeshadow palettes (mostly neutral) just lying around in my stash. Collecting dust, sadly. Not because I don’t want to use them but because I often don’t have the time to sit and blend 3-5 eyeshadows. On an average day, I wake up, respond to some emails, shoot and edit some pics and write a post or two before heading out for work. Glamorous, right? Sometimes I’m on this damn laptop for so long I literally end up zipping through the house in an effort to toss something on before I’m running late.

A Great Eyelash Adhesive If You’re Careful..

Kiss Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe Black

I try my best not to intimidate people when it comes to experimenting with makeup but there are some products out there that are just flat out intimidating. There’s no getting around it. Take liquid eyeliner, for example. People always joke that it can sense fear but I truly believe that. I’m serious! I can crank out a killer cat eye no problem with gel liner. But liquid eyeliner? I have to be focused.
