Jan/21/2018

For reference, I’m an NC30, tan/olive skin that burns in certain place (My toes! What’s up with that?) and freckle if I stay in the sun for an extended period. I try to limit my time in the sun as I live in Southeast Texas where the sun is often blazing and it’s almost always humid. On “normal” days when I’m wearing makeup and such, I (try to) apply a moisturizer with an SPF of at least 15 …Read more

Jul/01/2017

Like a lot of people, I'm a huge fan of Biologique Recherche's P50 lotion. It's an expensive yet amazing product that lives up to the hype. It is one of my holy grail/don't ever wanna live without this stuff products. My love for that has made me want to own the entire range. Since I'm not a billionaire, that's not possible so I grab what I can from the range when I …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Glossier - Perfecting Skin Tint

Sep/27/2016

I discovered Into the Gloss nearly a year ago when doing research on Biologique Recherche's P50 toner. I sort of fell down the Into the Gloss rabbit hole and subsequently found Glossier. The Perfecting Skin Tint was rather low on my want list as I was more interested in the Milky Jelly cleanser. I ended up buying the Phase 1 set that includes the Perfecting Skin Tint, the Milky Jelly, Balm …Read more

Styling Products - Kiehl's - Creme with Silk Groom

Apr/02/2016

I tried Creme with Silk Groom nearly 20 years ago and hated it. If memory serves, I ended up throwing a good portion of it away in a fury because I hated it that much. Oh, how time changes things. I bought it again about six months ago because I was going through a massive Carolyn Bessette Kennedy kick and this is what she supposedly used. So my hair doesn't look or behave exactly like …Read more

Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

Mar/10/2016

Due to the rave reviews, I've been wanting to try this out for a while. Since I already have a few cleansing waters that I'm kind of meh about, I wasn't in too much of a hurry to get my hands on this. Anyhow, I ended up getting a small bottle of this in my 2015 BeautyLish Lucky Bag (a whole other bust, but I digress).

Since getting this in January 2016, I've used it …

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Satin Lip Pencil in Het Loo

Mar/06/2016

I have come to adore NARS' Satin Lip Pencils. While I love lipstick, I tend to gravitate to pencil formula. Het Loo is the fourth or fifth I've bought in the last few years and I absolutely love it. I lost it about a month ago and was beside myself because I love the color and formula so much. Thankfully I found it (stashed among makeup brushes of all things) and was relieved! The …Read more

Skincare - Body - Alba Botanica - Hawaiian Kukui Nut Massage Oil

Mar/06/2016

A few months ago, I bought a Kukui nut oil blend from an organic indie brand and loved it. I used it sparingly because a 2oz bottle costs $20 (an 8oz bottle costs $55!) and I was going through it at a pretty fast rate. Having used a few other oils that are in that blend, I decided I probably liked the Kukui nut oil so I set about looking for a bottle of that. I found the Alba Botanica version on …Read more

Feb/23/2016

After reading reviews about Biologique Recherche's P50 toner a few weeks ago, I bought it along with this mask. While I think the P50 is definitely HG status, I'm still on the fence about this mask. The only reason I bought it was because a review I read quoted a spa worker that said using this mask twice a week will stop all signs of aging. Yeah, that's a silly remark to be swayed …Read more

Blush - Surratt - Artistique Blush - La Vie En Rose

Feb/23/2016

I had this blush in my Sephora cart for ages before eventually buying it. At $32, it is definitely the most I've ever spent on a blush but I'm generally glad I did.

La Vie En Rose is what I would classify as a fairly neutral color. If you're looking for something incredibly bold, this probably isn't for you. For the past year or so, I've been wearing …

Jan/18/2016

I came upon reviews for this toner a few weeks ago while looking for God knows what online. I was intrigued, bookmarked the reviews but didn't think too much about it. There are tens of thousands of reviews about skin care products that bloggers claim will change your skin, so I've learned to take most reviews with a barrel of salt. However, a lot of the bloggers who reviewed this toner …Read more
