I tried: DERMAdoctor’s DD Cream

April 15, 2018


And I love it. I wrote earlier that the other cream I bought was a bit too dark for my skin, and that I’d be saving it for summer in hopes of it being a better match at that time. When I opened THIS tube and squeezed a small amount out, it appeared to be […]

I tried: Concealers from Kat Von D and Fenty!

March 23, 2018


I was recently on a 2-year no-makeup bender and LOVED it. However, I also like painting my face when I feel like I’m not being objectified or judged for my looks. Now that I feel more comfortable and secure at my job, I’ve been slowly adding makeup back into my morning routine. On one hand, […]

I tried: Supergoop!’s Daily Correct CC Cream

March 21, 2018


I’m in the market for a tinted CC cream to sub out for my amazing Josie Maran Matchmaker Foudation. It’s great and I love it and I would recommend it to anyone, but it’s getting a bit thick and it doesn’t really do much in terms of actual coverage. The matchmaking part is awesome, but […]

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!

November 29, 2017


You know what one of my favorite things about going back to the USA is? Visiting Sephora. Seriously, I love walking into those stores. And I’m not really that into wearing makeup, but those ladies are SO GD HELPFUL all the damn time. I was in the states for 8 days, and I think I […]
