    100+ Beauty Questions Tag: Part III

    Here is the third and final part of the 100+ Beauty Tag, I really had a lot of fun doing this and would love to hear other’s responses so let me know if you do it!! Super black and makes my lashes phat. Sure have and it was a waterproof mascara at that, it adhered to my eyeball and I had specks for most of the day – it makes me wonder what is in waterproof mascara? I have been loving gloss lately and do like to put some over lipstick, I think it is OK to be a little messier when wearing it this way. Both! It is a…

    100+ Beauty Questions Tag: Part II

    Here is the next batch of questions from the 100+ Beauty Tag that I saw first on lifewithlilred – let’s get to it! It was a Neutrogena tinted powder that they don’t make anymore and I wish they did because it was such a good powder, I would absolutely love to use it again! Hate is a pretty strong word and a pretty strong feeling to have about some complete strangers makeup. If there is some who could enhance their features more with more polished makeup, Lena Dunham but I don’t hate her for her unique makeup 😀 Never. Bronzer! Even if you are pasty pale like me, bronze that…

    100+ Beauty Questions Tag

    I love a good tag, (although I am pretty terrible at tagging people back) but I have been following along with Sarah’s responses to the 100+ Beauty Tag and it looked like too much fun to pass up! Her responses have been fantastic and so much fun to read so definitely check out her posts and here we go! So many brands, so little time. I am going to have to say Charlotte Tilbury which I rarely talk about on my blog but only because I feel that this brand can be very hit or miss for people and it is definitely not my everyday makeup. This is the brand…

    NOTD: Peaches & Cream

    It is quite literally 100 degrees outside, it is miserable. Note to self, don’t test out a new deodorant on the hottest day of the year 😛 I couldn’t be bothered with makeup these last few days but I hope that everyone had a lovely weekend. I basically picked out the same nail colour that I had last time, by mistake but I like it and it’s so nude that the grow out doesn’t look so obvious: I keep waffling back and forth between, How is it still May and Next weekend is the first in June?! I blame the weather, it usually doesn’t get hot like this until July/August.…

    Summer To Be Read

    Ah, summer. Bees, sunburns, allergies, bees. I spent a lot of time indoors reading during the summer as a kid and to be honest, not a whole lot has changed since then. I take my chances with the bees these days and do read outside a lot more, usually in a full black ensemble and mosquito net, slathered in SPF 50 but I get outside 😛 Obviously, I don’t have as much free time now as I did then but I tend to read a lot more during the summer just out of habit and have quite a few books that I want to get through in the next couple…

    Anti-Haul #14

    It’s Memorial Day weekend in the states, the official kick-off to summer and apparently when Americans celebrate fallen war heroes with an asinine amount of sales. The last place I want to be on my three-day weekend is a mall but my inbox is overflowing with temptation and I feel the need for an anti-haul. Per usual, these are products that I personally do not feel the need to own but if you are into them, keep doing you 🙂 Melt Cosmetics Gemini Palette – This palette looks stunning and I know that their shadows are amazing but I feel betrayed by them jumping on the palette bandwagon! This brand…

    First Impression Friday – L’Oreal Lash Paradise Primer

    One of the most raved about mascaras to come out of the drugstore in the last year now has a companion primer and you better believe that I had to give it a go! I mentioned recently that I don’t really believe in primers and I stand by that unless it is a lash primer which is typically the exact opposite of how everyone else feels. Most of my gal pals don’t get why I love lash primers so much but they are an absolute staple for my makeup routine. Lash primers can be very nourishing for the lashes, they plump the lashes, they can enhance the durability and longevity…

    It’s a Rant Post…

    Pet-peeves, personal vexations, bete noires – we all have them, some of us more than others and I can admit that. I am very set in my ways, I am also very polite so people who annoy the shit out of me may never know until one day I am at the bursting point but that could take years. Instead of having said outburst, I will just sit here and methodically type out all of the things that really annoy the piss out of me. PSA to all of the annoying people in my life, aren’t you lucky I have a blog. It doesn’t just bother me, it makes me…

    #wednesdaywisdom

    I have been registered on Twitter since 2011, this is news to me as I don’t even recall why I signed up for it and don’t really understand it. I somehow linked my blog and my Twitter at some point so posts would sporadically appear from me but actual, intentional Tweets are few and far between. Seemingly, it is a platform for all of those opinions that we used to just internalize and keep to ourselves to be unleashed on complete strangers. The most interesting thing that I have discovered about Twitter is that it has a ‘night-mode’ which I think is pretty cool and have started using this as…

    Physician’s Formula – First Impressions

    I am a serial offender when it comes to deciding to try a product that I have never tried before and know nothing about on a whim, usually when I am already running late for work because I just like to torture myself. This happens a lot since I don’t have a ton of other time to try new makeup and I just seize the opportunity when it arises. I love these beauty gurus who use a product, do a little Facetuning and then are like – I’m gonna’ go wash my face now. If I put something on my face, it’s done, I’m committed, I have places to be.…
