I was at a teenage retails store when I came across this palette, and I was immediately enchanted by the color range. Even though it said 'nude', the palette included spring-themed pastels that could result in a variety of fairy-type of looks. I had to have it, so I bought it.

*Packaging - This brand is quite obscure, not to mention I found it a clothing store. When you …

I was on the hunt for shades to build a collection to dupe Too Faced's Peach Palette when I picked this gem up. This is a pleasant find. Here are my final thoughts after trying out the palette:

*Packaging - When you pay drugstore prices, expect drugstore packaging - pure and simple.
*Palette range - This palette offers an even number of neutrals and earth shades; total of …

The war of the roses continues. Still on the quest for that UD Naked 3 dupe, but I think I'm getting closer and closer to finding that holy grail of drugstore alternatives.

Here are my final thoughts after trying out the palette:

The hunt for a the perfect rose palette goes on. I still don't have the cash to drop on an Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, but I'm determined to find an affordable alternative. Here are my final thoughts after trying out E.L.F.'s Nude Rose Gold palette:

*Packaging - Professional and simple. Comes with a mirror, but it could stand to be a little bigger.

My favorite aroma at the carnival was the one wafting from the cotton-candy machine - that warm, spun sugar scent. So, I love smelling like a sweet shop, a Scentsy candle, sugar melting in a pot. My favorite scent used to be Pink Sugar, but it broke my heart to learn it was the cause of my headaches. I was glad to discover that Pacifica offered a vegan roll-on called 'Island Vanilla' …Read more

With liquid lipsticks trending the beauty community, I knew this was a must have for my makeup collection. I figured while I would build my high-end liquid lip (Kylie's Liquid Lip Kits or JeffreeStar's Velour Liquid Lipstick) budget, I'd pacify my desires with some drugstore dupes. Went out with the intention to pick up NYX's Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick or Lip Lingerie, but …Read more

I had always found contouring very intimidating, so when I won a generic (not a recognizable brand) contour palette during a white-elephant gift exchange last Christmas, I sought out contouring tutorials on YouTube; that's when I discovered Too Faced's Cocoa Contouring Kit. But $40 is a steep price to pay for a mom on a budget. I put off the notion of adding the kit to my collection …Read more

I love me a bouquet of roses, but purchasing my Lorac Unzipped palette made me realize that if I kept that up I'd send my bank account to the morgue. Since then, I've been thrifty with makeup. I did my research, and I've seen this featured as a dupe (one of many) for the coveted Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, but I've seen mixed reviews on YouTube, makeup blogs, and beauty …Read more
