Upgrading My Eye Makeup Brushes

I feel like makeup brushes are so often forgotten when I talk about my favorite cosmetics. The last time I did a dedicated post about my favorite eye makeup brushes was in 2018, but so much has changed over the last year so I thought I would circle back on this topic. I’ve always relied on affordable eye makeup brushes (think EcoTools, ColourPop and Real Techniques). I’m also a firm believer that you should invest in the brushes you’ll use often and save for everything else.

Glossier Futuredew Review | A Hybrid Serum-Oil

I really underestimated the newest skincare product launch from Glossier. That ‘lit from within’ glow happens before you put on makeup and it comes in the form of Futuredew. I’ve been using Futuredew for a couple weeks now and it’s my newest can’t-live-without product in my day and nighttime routine. Let me tell you why.

Wander Beauty Review | Makeup Multitaskers

Video ads kept popping up on my Instagram feed over the last few months and somehow I found myself mesmerized by Wander Beauty and their “get ready with me” content. I’m always curious about newer brands of makeup—especially complexion perfectors like foundation, concealer, etc. The brand was promoting a 20% off sale one weekend and that’s when I figured it was the best time to try a few products from the brand. I placed my order on a Sunday, it shipped on a Monday and it arrived at my house by Thursday.

A Restock Guide To Glossier Skincare & Makeup

If you think my life revolves around Glossier then you’re probably right. I don’t mind it either! I absolutely love and adore this brand and it’s always at the top of my list when readers reach out for product recommendations. I get this question often when I review Glossier products: how long does [Glossier X product] usually last before you need to restock?I thought it would be helpful to provide a quick list of all the Glossier products I’ve purchased and repurchased based on two pieces of criteria: frequency of use and hitting empty. —There are several Glossier skincare and makeup products that I use daily and others not as often.

Kylie X Balmain Review + Swatches

It was late 2015 when Kylie launched her first set of Lip Kits. Back then they sold out in minutes and I remember stalking the website just so I could get my hands on a few different lip kits so I could see what all the fuss was about. Koko K and Candy K became my new favorite liquid lipsticks that winter. Since then, her brand has obviously expanded into so many more shades, products and even skincare.

Ranking My Favorite Glossier Makeup Shades

Glossier really truly is one of my favorite brands if you can’t already tell. I’ve written numerous posts—from ranking my favorite skincare and makeup products from the line to product reviews to videos sharing a full face of Glossier. I thought I would expand on my product ranking post by diving a little deeper into ranking my favorite Glossier makeup shades! Specifically, Cloud Paint, Lidstar and Balm Dotcom. All three of these Glossier makeup products are favorites of mine!Cream-based blush has always been hit or miss for me, but Cloud Paint is the best cream blush I own.

6 Urban Decay Naked Palettes, Ranked

I love a good product ranking (see here and here for proof). Recently, I was gifted the Urban Decay Naked Honey Palette. This is the first of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes that has been gifted to me by the brand—all the rest have either been purchased with my own money or I was gifted a palette by a friend or family member. Needless to say, I was pretty stoked to receive it before it was available to purchase and immediately swatched every single shade.

Back in August I attended The Blog Societies 7thAnnual Conference: The Retreat (aka #TBSCon), which was held at the Barnsley Resort in Adairsville, Georgia.
