New Love! | Huda Beauty Matte and Metal Melted Shadows

YOU KNOW THAT MOMENT WHEN A FORMULA BLOWS YOU AWAY AND YOU SUDDENLY WANT IT IN EVERY SHADE POSSIBLE?

The Huda Beauty Matte & Metal Melted Shadows were exactly that for me.
One side is matte, the other metallic, as the name suggests. It which makes for the perfect one product eye look!

Revisiting Colourpop Cosmetics | Is It Worth the Hype?

A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, I SWORE OFF COLOURPOP.

While I loved the affordable price point, I had previously had some questionable customer service that left a sour taste in my mouth. Fast forward, and it seems like not a week goes by without a new Colourpop launch. It can be very hard not to get wrapped up in the constant, "OMG pretty need that!" FOMO feelings. The constant barrage of launches actually turned me off the brand; It has just been too much, too frequent. 
Having said that, as a blogger I get asked about the brand frequently. I always believe in giving brands a second chance and it's important for me to try the brands you all are interested in seeing!

STAYING AT HOME TO QUARANTINE DURING A PANDEMIC CAN PRESENT SOME NEW CHALLENGES AND STRUGGLES FOR YOUR SKIN.

Like I said, the struggle. 
I've noticed that my skin is definitely feeling more dehydrated, yet I'm getting stress breakouts.My lips are SO dry, and the dullness... oh God the dullness. So that's fun.
Beyond my regular skincare routines, there are a few products though that have pulled their weight a little extra. Here are 5 quarantine heroes for when you're stuck inside, and your skin needs a little extra TLC.... Read More

Chanel Les Beiges Water Fresh Tint

IT TOOK ME 7 MONTHS TO PURCHASE CHANEL LES BEIGES WATER FRESH TINT.
 ..because it was sold out every single time I tried to buy it. For SEVEN months!
Chanel is no stranger to beauty products that gain an insane cult following. Remember when you couldn't find Soleil Tan de Chanel anywhere? Rouge Noir Nail Polish Anyone? How about Notorious blush which made contouring a thing before it was a thing; People were buying it on eBay for 4-5x times the retail price for years!
Initially, when I heard about Chanel Water Tint I wrote it off as one of those nothing bases. It seemingly had no coverage, was stupid expensive and even seemed a bit... gimmicky.... Read More
