Origins haul: was it worth it?

I'm not going to lie to y'all - I've spent a lot of money during lockdown. I really didn't mean to, but I'm lucky enough to still be gainfully employed, and sometimes I can't resist a little retail therapy. Or a lot of retail therapy. One of my many hauls was from Origins, for reasons... Continue Reading →

The Beauty Consumer tag

Occasionally I see a tag somewhere that catches my eye and makes me think, “Hey, that’s a bandwagon I should jump on.” This tag was created by Nineties LoveChild, one of my favorite small creators on YouTube. This is not her actual name, but I won’t insult her by attempting to spell her name. She... Continue Reading →

My favorite products of 2019

I recently posted about some of the worst products I tried in 2019, and I feel like I need to offset the negativity by mentioning some of the best products I tried last year. Admittedly, I used a lot of old favorites this past year, like the Mizon snail cream I reviewed back in the... Continue Reading →

Lunar New Year anti-haul

Happy Lunar New Year! Just kidding, it's not actually until February. But sometime in the last few years, it's become de rigueur for brands to release a bunch of stuff for Lunar New Year. I never really noticed it because I live in the U.S. and it's not something that's celebrated everywhere, but now, immediately... Continue Reading →

Worst products I tried in 2019

I know that I've been a bit AWOL the last few months, but I've still been wearing makeup. I mean, obviously. It makes me feel like an actual person instead of a depressed swamp hermit, so yeah, I still try shit. I've tried some great stuff in 2019, and some really terrible stuff. Here are...

Holiday anti-haul!

As promised, here's your holiday 2019 anti-haul. Sit back y'all, because there's a lot here. Haus Lab Holiday collection Is this for real? Am I in some kind of alternate reality where Lady Gaga isn't, you know, LADY freakin' GAGA? Not that she needs to be outrageous all the time, but I don't expect her... Continue Reading →

Time for some disappointing products!

I'm spending this year attempting to be more conscious of the things I buy, but I've still purchased some things. Some of these things have been disappointing. I'd like to talk about them, and maybe you can learn from my mistakes. Everything I've tried from Kopari Beauty During the Christmas clearance sale I bought a... Continue Reading →

Fall wish list

I did an anti-haul recently, and I feel it's only right that I should talk about some things that I actually am interested in and do want. For the sake of balance, or whatever. Urban Decay Naked Honey palette We've been without a Naked palette release for six-ish months, so they were due for a release.... Continue Reading →

Mini-reviews

Greetings internet! I just took some time to update my Amazon storefront with some new stuff, so if you want to see a ton of things I use in my everyday life, plus makeup I love and books I've read, all complete with mini-reviews, check it out. Full disclosure: should you buy something from my... Continue Reading →

Summer anti-haul

It's been a long time since I posted an anti-haul, and since there's a ton of stuff that's either just been released or coming soon, I thought now would be a perfect time. So without further ado, here's some stuff I won't be buying. Besame Cosmetics Sleeping Beauty collection I'm an unequivocal lover of Disney... Continue Reading →

5 days

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... Continue Reading →

Review: Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation

I've been acquiring an almost troubling number of foundations recently. Not intentionally of course, but companies just keep releasing things I'm interested in. I'm still searching for that holy grail, ride or die product, so when there are new releases that catch my eye, I can't help thinking, "This could be the one." Of course,... Continue Reading →

Change of plans

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... Continue Reading →
