I haven’t mentioned my “smart buy” in a while, but this year I’ve tried really hard to be more particular about the things I purchase. It hasn’t always worked. I’m not immune to hype; I am a human who loves beauty products, after all. Unfortunately for me, a lot of the things I’ve purchased because…

Makeup and candy are two of my favorite things. I really think that my love of Halloween blossomed when I learned that the whole point of the day was free candy, and the love of creepy things came way later. I also love Asian beauty companies, like Etude House. Not only do most brands use…

I’ve already done my spring/summer anti-haul, but since I have a birthday coming in a couple months I suppose I should also do a wish list. Some of this stuff is new and some has been out for awhile and I haven’t been able to justify purchasing it. Tarte Be a Mermaid Eyeshadow Palette I…

I’ve been meaning to talk about this since the first time I saw it on Twitter. The idea of a bunch of (male) NASA engineers sitting around a table trying to figure out what women might want to put on their faces or use during their periods is, honestly, hilarious. I have this picture in…
