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.

Too Faced Melted Metallic Lipstick Round Up

Too Faced Melted Metallic Jelly Dream House Violet Lipstick

TGIF! My best friend is in town for a few more days and I’m off this weekend so I’m feeling great and life just seems easy right now. Can’t wait to knock out this last shift and get some dranks! But before I go have probably a little too much fun I want to make your your Friday a little easier too. So here’s a quick round up of my Too Faced Melted Metallic Lipstick Haul!

The Melted Metallic Lipsticks are similar to the original Melted Lipsticks but they’re still in totally different ballparks. The Melted Metallic Lipsticks are thinner and have a bit more sheen along with a subtle metallic shift. Too Faced markets them as liquid lipsticks but they feel more like glosses to me as they’re mostly sheer (yet buildable), never fully set and don’t last too long (3-5 hours). However, I still enjoy the formula! I do like the original Melted Lipsticks a little better but the Melted Metallic Lipsticks are still quite comfortable to wear and look great on the lips.

Lancôme Violette Pirouette Lip Lover Review

Lancome 361 Violette Pirouette Lip Lover

Sometimes in the beauty world, companies release products with gimmicky names that don’t always make sense. Like the CoverGirl Lip Lava glosses. I like the name, it’s cute. But when I think of lava, I think of hot. Not, “Ooo hot metallic glitta!” However, it seems that Lancôme was a little more spot on with their cute, yet gimmicky Lip Lover glosses. The first time I tried Violette Pirouette, I thought, “Wow. This stuff really does love lips!”

Unruly Brows? Try This!

wpid-img_20150517_041638.jpg

It’s been about 3 years since I first started teaching myself how to apply makeup and there’s some things I still struggle with. Brows are one of them. Some days, my brows just behave and turn out great. Other days, they just do their own thing and it drives me kinda nuts. My brows are a pretty tough case to crack. They’re sparse yet thick at the same time. I have random hairs that grow everywhere but where I need them. And since I’ve been in the process of growing them out I have some pesky strays that make filling them a headache sometimes.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser Review

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

As a makeup junkie, I can definitely appreciate the art and beauty of a beat face. However, there’s nothing more important than skincare! Makeup is fun, expressive and creative–a true form of art. But what good is all that fancy paint and such if the canvas isn’t up to par?

That’s one of many reasons I try to keep my skin in tip-top shape. Healthy skin just makes you look amazing–whether you’re wearing makeup or sporting a bare face. One of my recent skincare buys has been playing a pretty big role in keeping my skin healthy and looking great so I figured I’d share the details with ya.

Too Faced Melted Metallic Violet Lipstick Review

Too Faced Melted Metallic Violet Lipstick

I know today is technically supposed to be about pink but I couldn’t resist sharing a cute purple lipstick today too. Especially when it’s a bright purple with shimmer. Who can resist that? Not me! That’s why I didn’t even blink twice when I spotted Melted Metallic Violet at Ulta. I knew this beauty was coming home with me from the very beginning.
