I really intended to post something cheesy about how it’s gonna be May, but then the beginning of May passed me by. I feel like the last few months have been in fast forward. There’s been a lot going on in my life, personally and professionally, and my little passion project fell by the wayside…

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…

Hey, did you hear about Lush? In a shocking move, Lush Labs has announced that they’ll soon be shutting down all of their UK social media accounts. They have 202k Twitter followers, 569k on Instagram and 423k on Facebook. I’m not good at math, but that looks like close to 1.2 million social media followers…

And no, I’m not talking about the Urban Decay collab with Game of Thrones. While I am basically chomping at the bit to get my hands on it, something more exciting (for me) is coming soon. I started a new project this weekend, and I hope you’ll all like it. I’m trying to keep it…

I’m sure you all remember April Fool’s Day last year when Tarte announced their most interesting palette ever, the Icy Betch palette. It was gorgeous, with icy blues and cool greens, and I loved it. But it was a fucking joke. *eye roll* So here we are, a year later, and Tarte has actually released…

Occasionally I need to stop working for a while and listen to a book and put on makeup. Because work is lame and terrible. Today, it’s all Lunatick Cosmetics Labs. Established in 2012, Lunatick is vegan, talc-free and cruelty-free, made in the US. Their aesthetic speaks to me – it’s all creepy and ghoulish. Their…

You all know that I spend too much time watching YouTube, and one of my favorite beauty YouTubers is Georgia Harris. She’s cool as hell, and a little weird, and she likes Pokemon and beanies and I’m into it. She’s not your typical cookie cutter influencer and that’s a big part of her appeal. Anyway,…

The other night Dan and I were hanging out with a friend of his, having beers and shooting the shit. I’ve only met this friend once before so he didn’t know about my obsession with all things beauty related, but of course Dan had to brag/complain about it. As soon as the kid found out…
