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 →

It’s been a sad week

Hello again internet friends. I'm coming to you today with lots of complicated feelings. Sadness, rage, disgust, hopelessness, to name just a few. But I don't want to talk about that because it's not actually about me. It's about people who can't walk down the street or go to the store without being seen as... 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 →

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 →

Boys need skin care too

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...

January empties

Wow, it's been a long ass time since I wrote an empties post. It's something I did once and didn't feel the need to do again, but since my goal for the year is to use up a whole lot of stuff, I think we should check out some of my trash. Note: this is... Continue Reading →

Holiday anti-haul: drugstore edition

Am I too late in the Christmas season to talk about products I don't want? Yes? Oh well, you're getting another anti-haul anyway. I know that I talked about some inexpensive products in my Ulta anti-haul, but there's more drugstore stuff that's been released that I feel personally victimized by. Mostly because they're pointless, gimmicky... Continue Reading →

Beware! There’s death in everything!

If you're anything like me and mildly obsessed with Asian beauty products, you're likely also always concerned about what's actually in the stuff you're slathering all over your face. Enter Allure to confirm our worst fears: apparently dangerous levels of mercury have been found in skincare products being sold on Amazon and eBay. Lovely. According... Continue Reading →
