    Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Color Corrector

    I first noticed dark circles under my eyes when I was in college. I distinctly remember I had pulled an all-nighter to memorize like 100 paintings, the artists, the mediums, etc. for my art history class. Side note: I had waited 4 years to take art history because it never fit in my schedule since it had nothing to do with my major or minor and I finally got to take it senior year and absolutely loved it. Anyway, I remember thinking my dark circles were a result of my staying up all night and once I got to catch up on sleep they’d go away. But, they never did.…

    Lash Freak Mascara

    I love trying new mascaras. I’m open to trying any kind of mascara, but I only have a few favorites. So did the new Urban Decay Lash Freak Mascara make the cut for my list of favorites? Here’s how Urban Decay describes the mascara: “An intensely volumizing mascara with an asymmetrical brush that lengthens and lifts lashes for a dramatic, wide-eyed look. This ultra-pigmented mascara creates 23.6 times more volume and 40 percent more visible length. The brush was designed to give extreme volume and definition to lashes. The tip defines and separates, while the curved side adds lift. The mascara’s long-wear formula lasts up to 20 hours and is…

    Born This Way Foundation

    Today I’m sharing my thoughts on the Born this Way Foundation from Too Faced. This is definitely the foundation that I’ve been the most excited to talk about in a while. The last one I shared was the Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation Serum. I really liked that foundation at first when I wrote that review. I said it had good coverage (true) and didn’t get patchy on my skin in those first 2 weeks. Well, as the weeks went on I felt like it started to really break down on my skin by the evenings. I don’t know why it changed on my skin after a few weeks, but…

    NYX Correcting Concealer

    I’ve always been intrigued by colored concealers that are geared towards specific purposes. NYX has 22 shades in their Hi Definition Photo Concealer line and I picked up the green shade which is supposed to conceal/correct redness. I have been using the green concealer for a few weeks now and first of all I have to say it is a beautiful shade of green, even though that probably has nothing to do with anything. It does lessen the appearance of redness from pimples and little marks, but it’s important to note that while it takes out redness, it doesn’t fully conceal. If you want to really conceal marks you’d have…

    No Makeup Foundation Serum

    Sunday, already? It’s a 3-day weekend here, thankfully, but I can’t believe it’s already Sunday. I tried to sleep in yesterday, but woke up at 8am to the sound of pouring rain. It was so loud that I had to put my AirPods in and play music to drown out the sound of the pounding rain. Do you have any Memorial Day Weekend plans? I’m at my parents house and just having a small bbq with them since we can’t really see other people here in NJ. So the beauty product I’m talking about is not one that I got during the Sephora sale, but something I got on sale…

    Sephora VIB Spring Haul

    The Sephora VIB spring sale was back in April, but with everything going on there were shipping delays understandably. My full order is finally in after a few weeks and 3 different shipments so I wanted to share my haul with you! So with my discount this is what I bought this time around: Too Faced Natural Lust Palette – This palette isn’t new, but it’s been on my radar for a very long time so I decided to pick it up. I love all the colors in the palette. Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution – I’ve heard some good things about this solution and as you know I have…

    Beauty Counter Haul

    I have heard of Beauty Counter for the past, at least, 2 years and I’ve been wanting to try the clean beauty brand but never did. Thankfully, I was sent two items from the brand so I could finally try it out for myself and see what the hype was all about! I was sent the Velvet Eyeshadow Palette in “Classic” and the Sheer Lipstick in “Rose”. I’m so happy that these were the two that were sent to me. First of all, they are so my colors! I love the eyeshadow palette – they’re the kind of colors I use all the time. The shadows are so easy to…

    MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation

    I’ve been wanting to try the MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation for a long time. I don’t know why that’s the one I zero’ed in on of all the MAC foundations a while ago, but it’s been on my mind. So I got it a while ago and have been using it for about a month now. Here is the description MAC gives: A luxurious, creamy foundation that delivers ultimate hydration while instantly revitalizing the look of dull and dry skin. Innovative gel-based system provides outstanding skin feel and medium to full buildable coverage with a natural satin finish. Micronized silicone-coated pigments improve skin adherence and blendability while helping to maintain…

    Joah Beauty Blur Activator Mineral Primer

    A good primer can help your makeup stay in place all day. I’ve used drugstore and high end primers and have liked most of them. There have been only one or two that I didn’t really care for. I was recently sent the Joah Beauty Blur Activator Mineral Primer. It’s a drugstore brand that is K-Beauty inspired and people love K-Beauty so I was excited to give this a try. Here’s how Joah Beauty describes the primer: What it does: Infused with Korean Camellia Oil, this lightweight, airy skin perfecting primer creates a veil-like effect on the skin which “blurs” imperfections leaving smooth, flawless skin. Foundation will glide on and…
