    Majorette Blush

    Last year when Benefit came out with the Majorette Cream to Powder Blush I thought the packaging looked adorable, but since I wasn’t a huge cream makeup fan I didn’t really think seriously about purchasing it. I’ve never been a huge fan of cream products, but they’ve been slowly growing on me. I first started coming around to the idea of them back in the winter with the BareMinerals Pop of Passion Blush Balm. So seeing as how I was starting to actually like cream products and Ulta had Majorette on sale for $10 from its original $29 price tag, I decided to get it. How amazing is that deal?! The packaging is…

    Benefit POREfessional Primer

    I don’t know about you, but it takes me forever to get through primers. Maybe it’s because usually a little goes a long way and normally you just want to put a thin layer on. I recently finally finished up my Maybelline Babyskin primer and while I enjoyed that one, I’m always up for trying new products. A primer that people always mention is Benefit’s POREessional. The product description says, “Quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. Contains a vitamin E derivative, known to…

    Watt’s Up & Rockateur Combo

    How was everyone’s weekend? I’m officially back to work today. Students don’t come in until next week, but I have a week of workshops and meetings all day, every day this week. Can you feel my excitement? So I thought I’d start off this week with a little beauty post about a combo that I’ve been absolutely loving lately. Both products are from Benefit and they are the Watt’s Up Cream to Powder Highlighter and the Rockateur Box o’ Powder Blush. The Watt’s Up that I have is a mini I received from Sephora  a long time ago but have just gotten around to using. So far I like it…

    Holiday Makeup Haul

    As mentioned in my last haul, the holidays are upon us in the makeup world and in real life too. I’m a sucker for pretty and/or adorable packaging so it comes as no surprise that all the holiday collections are pretty detrimental to my health and wallet. The collections always look so amazing and combine that with the fact that they’re all limited edition it’s hard to restrain myself! I’ve gotten a couple of things so far and I know I will be getting a few more and yes, I know it seems like a lot but believe me there are so many more items that I could’ve gotten as well…

    October Favorites

    I’ve toyed around with the idea of doing a monthly favorites post for a little while now. I never thought I would have enough favorites of one category of things to share. So instead I decided that I’d write about some of my favorites from all different categories. The categories may vary each month, but this is just a look at some of things I’ve been loving for the month of October! Favorite Makeup Item: I’ve been loving the Benefit Rockateur Blush. It’s a beautiful dusty rose color and provides a glow on the cheeks that is beyond any blush I’ve ever used before. Favorite New Clothing Item: I’ve gotten…
