NYX HD Blush Swatches

NYX Pink the Town, Intuition, Amber HD Blush

Lipstick will always be my first love but every now and then I’m reminded of just how much I love other makeup goodies. Like blush. Earlier this year, blush was purely optional as I was almost always forgetting to put some on or just skipping it altogether in a rush. Now that it’s getting colder and I could use a little more color I’m all about blush. I just can’t get enough of it!


Yves Saint Laurent 49 Terriblement Fuchsia Gloss Volupte Review

Yves Saint Laurent 49 Terriblement Fuchsia Gloss Volupte

When it comes to luxury makeup, I almost always end up buying a product because of the packaging. Well, initially. I do intend to use the good stuff inside eventually but often I find myself hauling things simply because I think they’ll look like art on my vanity. I think that was my train of thought when I picked up the Yves Saint Laurent 49 Terriblement Fuchsia Gloss Volupte. ‘Cause after it left my vanity I had almost completely forgotten about it.


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Review

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

You know I’m a straight up falsies fiend so it’s not often that I go running to try the latest mascara. My short, super curly lashes just don’t benefit from them the way I’d like. But that didn’t stop curiosity from killing the cat when I finally decided to checkout Too Faced’s new Better Than Sex Mascara. Between the cute packaging, cheeky name and the cult following its developed I knew it was time to finally give this baby a try.


Bobbi Brown Golden Nude CC Cream Review

Bobbi Brown Golden Nude CC Cream

Brown skin can be pretty tricky sometimes when it comes to makeup. It comes with all kinds of quirks like unevenness and hyper-pigmentation along with a dull, ashy cast sometimes. That’s why a one size fit all approach isn’t always the best for brown gals–especially when it comes to foundation. Most people aren’t all one color in the face and this holds especially true for WOC. We’re usually a bit darker in the perimeter of our faces and lighter in the center. This contrast can often cause foundation to look a little dull and ashy around the darker areas. And we all know that’s the worse for WOC!

If you follow me on Snapchat, then you’ve probably seen many of my no makeup selfies and noticed that I have a sort of natural contour along with some slight hyper pigmentation around my mouth. Sometimes, the area around my hairline and mouth can start to look dull and ashy because my foundation just doesn’t cut it when it comes to the deeper parts of my face.


Too Faced Your Love Is King Love Flush Blush Review

Too Faced Your Love Is King Love Flush Blush

There comes a time in every makeup junkie’s life when she finds herself stuck in a rut. This year, I’ve been in a serious blush rut. At first, I wasn’t wearing blush because I was almost always rushing to get ready for work. Once I started giving myself more time, all I reached for was natural blushes that just offered a little warmth or the slightest wash of color. Not nearly enough for my deep chocolatey complexion all of the time. I need some color!
