Hello friends! I recently received an order from Tarte in the mail, and one of the things in it was the Creamy Matte Lip Paint Set. I have been addicted to liquid lipsticks as of late, so when I saw this kit on sale for only $21 I knew I needed to try it. In this post, I’m going to go over packaging, swatches, formula and give my overall thoughts. Continue reading
Hello friends! I just got back late last night from my Iceland trip. So many of you have given me encouragement and advice for my first time travelling solo, and I want to share how it went. I’ve created a photo-journal of sorts; I hope you enjoy it! Continue reading
Hello, my lovely friends! I can’t believe 2017 is already here.. Between school and travel, 2016 zipped by. There were also many rough things that happened over the last year, but they challenged me and helped me grow. Political issues made me want to rip my hair out, but they also helped me determine what my values are. My first semester of my senior year stressed me out so badly, but it helped prepare me to be a special needs teacher more than any previous semester. Let’s hope 2017 will be just as fulfilling!
For today’s post, I want to outline some of my New Years resolutions, as well as post my usual monthly goals. Let’s dive in! Continue reading
Colourpop is one of my all-time favorite makeup brands. I use their eyeshadows and lip products almost every day, and quite enjoy their eyeliners. While browsing the Colourpop site recently, I realized that they carry a product that I have never tried: “Sculpting Stix”! These are sticks of products that can be used to contour and highlight your face. At $5 apiece, I decided it couldn’t hurt to try them out. Plus, I had only ever tried powder contouring, so I was excited to see if I would like this better. Let’s take a look at how it went. Continue reading
I went to Walmart yesterday with the intention of picking up a Tide stain remover pen, and nothing else. Yet, I somehow found myself in the cosmetics aisle… This happens every time! Anyways, as I was browsing, I noticed there was a collection of lipsticks I had never tried before: Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish by Kate Moss. There weren’t very many in stock, so I grabbed the three available neutral shades at $4.50 apiece and headed to check out. Continue reading
Hello lovelies! I have been receiving Ipsy bags for several months now, but have not done a review until now. Why not? Who knows. But, this month’s bag has really impressed me, and I’ve decided to do a post showcasing the products. I’ve definitely got some new favorite products from this bag. Continue reading
Hello everybody! I am currently recovering from having all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted, and I look like a chipmunk. It’s pretty awful; my cheeks are about twice their normal size, and my lymph nodes in my jaw are about the size of golf balls. I wanted to do a beauty post this weekend, but there is no way I’m putting my swollen face on here for everybody to see. (I did, however, make a beauty tutorial while still under the effects of the anasthesia. Comment below if you think I should post that!). Anyways, I was browsing beauty blog posts all morning, trying to come up with inspiration. I came across this post, How Much is My Face Worth, over at Currently, Lately. This is a tag that has been going around on beauty blogs, where people tally up the total cost of the makeup products they use. This is usually a pretty startling number, and it inspires people to start looking for affordable alternate brands. Today, I’m going to look in my daily bag and find out how much my everyday face costs…. I’m so nervous! Let’s go.
