Fall wish list

I did an anti-haul┬árecently, 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 →

WTF Tarte

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... Continue Reading →

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: Sephora edition

Here we go again: another anti-haul! Today we're looking at Sephora, and there's a lot to rag on here so let's get right to it. Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Carnaval Extravaganza Beauty influencers everywhere are weeping that this made someone's anti-haul, but I really don't get why it's so universally loved. It's supposed to...

Allure Beauty Box: September

I'm feeling a bit more like myself today, so let's talk about this random beauty subscription. I liked it when I received it at the end of August, so I kept the subscription. I'm not as crazy about it this month. MAC Lustre Lipstick in Lustering Confession time: I've never owned a MAC lipstick. Or... Continue Reading →

MOTD: “no makeup” makeup

I don't normally post my daily makeup (mostly because I don't wear makeup every day), but I really like the way today's turned out. I was going for a natural look since I was just working and then picking Dan up from the train station. On my face: Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Foundation, shade 4... Continue Reading →

Awake Beauty

Tarte has had a rough few months. Between the Shape Tape shade debacle, the boring releases and the April Fool's joke gone wrong, they're struggling when it comes to PR. I generally like their products, but they've made some missteps. Now they're re-releasing their "sister brand", Awake Beauty. I don't remember this brand ever being... Continue Reading →

Joke’s on you, Tarte

Did you all see Tarte's April Fool's joke? They teased a new palette, the Icy Betch palette. The problem is that people were more interested in this joke palette than they have been with Tarte's recent releases. Awkward. Don't get me wrong: I like Tarte for the most part. I've used a ton of their... Continue Reading →

The Tarte situation

I'm a little late to this party, but I wanted to weigh in on the recent Tarte controversy. I use the term controversy lightly since it's makeup and really, how seriously should we take it? If you haven't heard about this yet, Tarte released the Shape Tape Foundation to go with the Shape Tape Concealer,... Continue Reading →

Let’s check out my beauty trash!

I've seen this kind of video on YouTube about 1000 times and I think it's interesting; it's a chance to do mini-reviews of stuff I love that was purchased prior to starting this blog, and stuff I wouldn't purchase again. I'm not sure how it'll work in this format, but it's worth a shot. Here... Continue Reading →

I left the house today!

Bonus: I did my makeup like a human. So, all the things I'm wearing: E.L.F. Poreless Face Primer, applied with a Real Techniques angled face brush, because I'm fancy No. 7 Stay Perfect Foundation in Cool Beige, applied with a damp Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge Milani Retouch + Erase Light-Lifting Concealer in 03 Medium...
