I got an email a little over an hour ago. Cue freakout. Navigating to the Haus Laboratories site shows a countdown clock and the same image of Lady Gaga as the one in the email. Click her gorgeous face, and you’ll be watching a promotional video in which people of various races and genders dance…

I intended to post a review of the new Maybelline foundation tonight. I even have wear test photos. I was so excited that I was getting it together for this month. Then I looked at the clock. Work ran later than I planned, and I have a four-hour journey into the wilderness tomorrow, and many…

We just got back to Albany after spending the weekend in Rochester. We went to our oldest niece’s high school graduation and had lots of family time. It was lovely. I tried some new stuff while I was gone. Reviews are imminent. And tomorrow is July 1st. I don’t know where the time is disappearing…

I’ve mentioned before how much I hate when brands release the same shit over and over again. It’s like they get so comfortable with their best-selling products that they don’t try anymore. One of the best examples is Benefit with their brow and cheek products, and Nars with their Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer. Well,…

HOLY HELL WHY DO PRODUCT NAMES NEED TO BE SO LONG. Ahem. Anyway. Around Christmas, I purchased the Perfect Skin Bundle from this company that includes the Exfoliating Treatment and the Porefining Face Mask. It was on sale so I got both pieces for $55, which is still INSANE, to be clear, but at the time…
