This is just a quick post of my Walgreens haul. It’s a little bit of skincare, a little bit of lipstick, and a non-beauty fave I haven’t shared here before, office supplies. Continue reading Walgreens Haul Going Up…On a Wednesday
If you love makeup you’ve experienced the hope of something working for you only to find out it’s nothing like you thought. If you’re a makeup novice you may grapple with the anxiety of picking something that isn’t going to work for you. No matter the camp you fall in, as a consumer, you have to take a chance, hope for the best, and worst case scenario return it if it doesn’t work. Well L’Oreal is attempting to take some of that guesswork out with their new makeup testing app Makeup Genius.
Besame Cosmetics is a California based cosmetics company with a vintage feel. I talked about how I discovered the brand in a previous post that covered the red lipstick Agent Peggy Carter(Hayley Atwell) wears in Marvel’s Agent Carter. I ended up purchasing Noir Red.

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is the first Nars foundation I’ve tried.

2014 is coming to a close. While some of us are thinking about what we want to leave behind I wanted to share some beauty products that are coming with me into 2015.
Melt Cosmetics has been teasing that something new was on the horizon for the last few weeks. If you follow their Instagram then you probably know that Melt is coming out with eyeshadows.
2 sets of 4 shadows will be released Friday January 2, 2015 for $48. The Dark Matter stack consists of matte shades to create a chocolate smokey eye. The Love Sick stack is accent colors. While Melt is a cruelty-free brand some of the eyeshadows are not vegan. Some customers are dismayed by this and that sentiment is peppered among the comments of excitement on social media.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is a brand you need to get to know if you haven’t already. The brand is cemented as one of my faves because of the variety and pigmentation of their Lip Tars.
