I Squealed A Little At the Caboodles Malibu Barbie Collection

My little girl side readily admits that anything Barbie gets me super excited especially this Caboodles Malibu Barbie Collection. Don’t hate me the Colourpop Malibu Barbie Collection did nothing for me but I’m feeling this Caboodles Collection. I mean, it’s Barbie and Caboodles…! I have such fond memories of both! Beauty confession! I still have my lilac marble shaded Caboodle from years and years and years ago back when dinosaurs roamed the beauty world. I have so many great memories of B...

I Swear These Beauty Products Changed Their Formulas…….

Have you ever loved a lipstick or an eyeliner or a moisturizer so much that you felt the need to stock up on it? Don’t worry! You aren’t alone! I’ve totally had moments where I’ve hoarded away some fragrance, skincare, or even a MAC Pigment or two that I loved. I think some of the psychology behind this is the fear it’ll be discontinued but another fear is that the formula will change. I’ve seen this happen time and time again! I’ll fallen in with something, use it to the very last drop, r...

Pretty Things I Want for the Warmer Weather

I started doing a little Spring cleaning this week. Everyday for the past week I’ve started slowly bringing my Spring/Summer clothing and accessories to the front of my closet. All my sweaters I’ve tucked away onto the back shelves and brought my t-shirts, cooler blouse, and shirts to the front of the shelves. I put a lot of my flats and colorful Converse to the front of the shelves for easier to access. The weather isn’t quite perfect yet but it’s getting there slowly and I want to be prepa...

Wakey, wakey friends. It’s Wednesday time to get over the hump and see the weekend in the distance. How’s your week going? Good I hope! Mine has been a bit crazy and busy but I’m hanging in there. Work has been nuts but that’s to be expected with things slowly re-opening. I dunno about you but the excitement in my life this morning is the new .

Dermablend Lock and Last Water-Resistant Setting Spray Is Killing Me With This Formula

Dermablend Lock and Last Water-Resistant Setting Spray ($26) brings us a new hydrating makeup setting spray for Summer 2021. Dermablend promises this new mist will hydrate skin while sealing in moisture…. Yeah, not so much. I’m so disappointed in this because I’m a huge fan of Insta-Grip Jelly Primer 3-in-1 Multi-Tasking Primer and this is an extension of that product as they promise this provides the same seal and grip as the primer but it contains alcohol and witch hazel. Boooooo! It makes...

That Damn Patrick Ta Fan Unlocked Beauty Products I Forgot About….!

We haven’t done a beauty blast from the past moment in ages! AGES! I tend to bring back all my vintage beauty on Instagram lately but I rarely do it on the blog anymore. People had a blast reminiscing about those old L’Oreal HIP Eyeshadow Duos when I posted them on IG. I swear I’m turning into my father…! “When I was your age bread was twenty five cents and we drank water from the tap!” I’m like that with makeup lately! “I remember when eyeshadow was pigmented, soft, and beautifully form...

Innisfree Next Pandemic Victim Plans On Closing US Stores

Korean brand Innisfree announced this past Friday that all North America starts will start closing citing the pandemic. We got our first Innisfree store here in New York back in 2017 and a few have popped up since. No one panic as the brand will continue to be sold at Sephora.com and I assume they’ll keep their website site open as well. Amorepacific is having a hell of a time lately with some of it’s K-Beauty brands. Etude House faces the same struggles as Innisfree and began closing store...

Revlon Restructures Yet Again

I thought Gal Gadot was going to turn Revlon around and make it cool again. She’s Wonder Woman FFS! I guess not because Revlon restructures yet again. Revlon plans to reinvest in its brands to drive sales and profit growth. Revlon had a net sales dip of 1.8 percent to $445 million and a net loss of around $96 million (compared to $214 million last year). Their plan is to boost growth in the next two years while reducing their annual costs. They also plan on focusing not only on the Revlon b...

Cetaphil Sheer Hydration Body Spray Moisturizer Light On Moisture But Perfect for Summer

Cetaphil Sheer Hydration Body Spray Moisturizer is a new body spray lotion that contains a hydrating blend of hyaluronic acid, sunflower seed oil, vitamin B5, and antioxidant rich vitamin E to sooth and soften dry, dehydrated skin. I love a good moisturizer spray! I find them convenient to use and mess-free! I also like the thinner consistency as they aren’t as sticky or thick as a body cream or lotion. I mean, I’m all Bath and Body Works, the Body Shop, etc…but some of their formulas are s...
