Dreamy Cream with LUSH

14 Aug

Do you remember your dreams?  I usually do after I first wake up, but after I get up and begin the day, they somehow disappear from my memory.  Although, there are a handful of dreams that I remember that I had when I was a kid.  How is that possible?  Maybe Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are walking around in my head, messing with my subconcious…

Well, Inception talk aside, lets talk about a dream what I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.   Continue reading


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

Shine-be-gone with Palladio Rice Powder

9 Aug

Weird fact about me:  I like to fold laundry.  I have a “folding board” that I fold shirts with to ensure they are the same size with perfect corners.  I love to fold towels and carefully stack them up so they are all facing the same way and lined up.  Oh, and jeans!  I love folding jeans.  There’s just something so satisfying about seeing a stack of perfectly folded jeans….

Alright, well now that you know what a psychopath I am, I’ll get on to something else that I find satisfying that maybe you can relate too:  affordable makeup.

This powder will set you back about $5, but does it work?   Continue reading

Take a Dip in the Ocean with Lush

1 Aug

A good friend of mine (who shares a cosmetic addiction much like myself) has been urging me to try LUSH for months.  She would spend hours gushing about how much she loved their products.  I could always tell when she had visited a LUSH store, there was some extra pep in her voice.

Intrigued by this brand that had brought my friend so much joy, I finally had to go check it out for myself.  I picked up some of their classic items and this scrub was one of them.

Now, I know some of you “Lushaholics” out there are probably saying, “Where have you  been the past 2 years??!”  In my defense, the LUSH craze hasn’t really hit the midwest yet.  We’re too busy working in the corn fields, ya know. Continue reading

Battle of the Blush and Bronzer Duo’s

31 Jul

I strolled into my local Target on a mission to find this new nail polish I had just read about.  I scanned the cosmetic aisle with almost laser-like eyes, I didn’t see it.  I scanned it again, this time bending my knees a little so I could get closer.  Didn’t see it.  Dang, what a disappointment, I say those dreaded words in my mind, “They don’t have it.”

I put my head down and started to exit the cosmetics isle when something caught my eye.  Is that… NARS at Target?  No, but it sure looks like it.  And it sure looks like a dupe for Orgasm and Laguna.  I looked at the price tag ($3) and was happily on my way.  This trip to Target wasn’t a waste after all.

So… is the E.L.F duo comparable to the NARS?

Well let’s just find out!

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).

A Really Good Concealer

18 Jul

A good concealer can hide dark circles, cover up blemishes, and even out any redness in the skin.

A good concealer gives that extra coverage when foundation just isn’t enough.

A good concealer is never cakey and lasts all day.

A really good concealer can be your best friend.

Ladies and gents, I give you, my new best friend.

Who is she?  Continue reading
