Marc Jacobs – thanks for being cruelty free!

February 10, 2018


How great is it that a major fashion house doesn’t test on animals? It’s SUPER great. I needed a new eyeliner and wanted something a bit more crayon/less pencil (but maybe not liquid just yet), and found this Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner. And OMG, I feel like it’s changed my life. I am […]

I tried: Josie Maran’s Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter

December 22, 2017


I’m a big fan of Josie Maran. I am totally in love with her Argan Matchmaker Serum. So when I got this sample with my recent Sephora order, I was pretty excited to try it out. It turned out to be JUST the right time to try this, as I was running low on Lush’s Celestial […]

Trying out some new, bold lip colors

November 30, 2017


As I said in an earlier post, I’m getting back into wearing makeup after a hiatus – and I wanted to try out something different. I’ve basically run out of all of the colors I used to wear, or they’ve just expired. So I have a chance to replace some things at the moment. I’ve […]

Things from Anastasia Beverly Hills: I am trying them!

It’s about control.

I tried: Sunday Riley’s CEO moisturizer

October 12, 2017


I know, I am SO FAR BEHIND on the blogs. Shit has been so GD busy around here since May! I’m doing my best to play catch-up at work and whenever I have a few free minutes to write stuff down. Stories. They are coming. One of the first things I will share that is […]

I tried Wild Fern’s Manuka Honey products

March 15, 2017


I am going to admit something: I’m not really one to pay attention to beauty products. I don’t read magazines and I don’t own a TV. There’s not a lot of advertising that reaches me lately, especially when you consider the language barrier: my Japanese sucks, so even the ads on the train don’t really […]
