Dupe Alert!

MAC Brave/ Rimmel 104

Hello everyone! I just wanted to alert you all to a dupe that I stumbled across this weekend! I was swatching some lipsticks, trying to decided which I wanted to pack for a week away, when I realized that I had found some twins! While they might not be identical, these lipsticks are close enough that you can definitely swap one for the other.  Continue reading

Sephora Haul!

Sephora Haul

So, this weekend I had a 20% off coupon to use at Sephora. I’m not sure if this was only available to VIB’s or all Beauty Insider’s. If you aren’t aware, (and I wasn’t aware myself until recently) Sephora has three levels of their rewards membership. Anyone  can register for a Beauty Insider membership, which gets you rewards as you rack up points and includes you in special offers. After you spend an embarrassing amount of money at Sephora, you become qualified to be a Very Important Beauty Insider (VIB). An even more embarrassing sum gets you VIB Rouge  status.

That is why picking just one favorite lip product was an impossible task for me. I did, however manage to narrow it down to four, which I consider to be pretty darn impressive.

#JuneBBC Day 6 || Disappointing Buys

Disappointing purchases, it has happened to us all, one way or another. If you are like me, you research everything to death before you buy it. Sometimes though, a bad egg manages to slip through. Whether it’s an impulse buy that just doesn’t pan out, or a product that doesn’t live up to expectations despite best efforts to research it thoroughly; from time to time, we are stuck with a product that we just don’t love. Here is a small handful of the products that I wanted to love, but just couldn’t. I had a hard time coming up with products because if I hate something, I either give it away or get rid of it. However, these are the few that I can remember.

#JuneBBC Day 2 || Favorite Brush

Happy 2nd day of the June Beauty Blog Challenge! Today’s topic is favorite brush and, although it took some thought, I think I have come up with my definition of the perfect brush.

While perusing my (excessive…I have a slight problem, ok?) brush collection, I realized that picking just one brush as my favorite was going to be very difficult. I mean, I have a handful of brushes that I use everyday, and how could I choose just one? Finally, my eyes landed on this one and I knew it was the answer! The brush in question is the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.
