MAC 167SH Brush, Review

13 Aug

Makeup trends come and go, but a good brush always has a place in your collection.

I picked up this little guy (no seriously, it’s little) on a whim.  I knew I didn’t need another powder brush, but the limited edition siren was going off in my head.  I didn’t want to miss out on something that could potentially be wonderful!  So, did they little guy disappoint? Continue reading

Blushing with Bobbi Brown

30 Jul

Me:  “I got this really pretty blush from Bobbi Brown!”

Significant other:  “… he makes makeup?”

Me:  *rolls eyes*  Yes, the lead singer of New Edition is into the high-end cosmetics business.  That makes perfect sense.

Silly boyfriend talk aside, the makeup artist Bobbi (with an i) Brown makes some amazing products.  This blush is no exception.

A bright matte pink that isn’t powdery and wears all day?  That’s crazy talk! Continue reading

Happy Feet with Lush

26 Jul

I’m pretty rough on my feet.  I shove them in high heels every day and just tell them to deal with it.  You can imagine my delight when I came across this cute little set at Lush with products all geared toward my poor feetsies.

I decided to give them some pampering (before I shove them back into a stiletto).

How To Make Your Own Hand Lotion

10 Jul

I used to be obsessed with the $30 L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream until I discovered, I can make my own hand cream at home!

But wait, won’t that require lots of time and weird ingredients that I have to go to a hippie store to find?

Nope.  This hand cream requires ingredients that you can find at your local drugstore.  And the best part?  It’s fabulous.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow, Color Expansion Kit

As a product junkie, I’ve tried just about every eyeshadow out on the market.  Also, I can find at least one thing wrong with every single product that I try.  While some eyeshadows may be duds all together, some may be the best thing EVER but the price tag is sky-high.  Will there ever be THE perfect eyeshadow?  Great quality WITH an affordable price?

I stand (er, sit and type) here before you today to share, ladies and gents, the best eyeshadow that I’ve ever used.

What’s so great about it?  Read on, my friends… Continue reading

Two Favorite Pink MAC Lipsticks

31 Jan

MAC Lipstick and I go way back… I remember my first one.  It was Russian Red and I got it to wear to my senior prom.  It was one of the first “expensive” (aka, non-drugstore) cosmetics purchases that I had ever made.  I remember thinking how iconic the packaging looked, with its simplistic black tube.  I even made sure to apply only when other people around so they would have the opportunity to ask about my new fancy lipstick.

Not much has changed since then, I still love my MAC lipsticks and still choose the colors that I buy very carefully.  Check out my two favorite (carefully chosen) pinks!

Which ones are they?   Continue reading
