Here’s How Not to Spend $52 On Tatcha The Liquid Silk Canvas Featherweight Protective Primer

Tatcha The Liquid Silk Canvas Featherweight Protective Primer is a new variation of Tatcha’s popular The Silk Canvas Protective Primer that launched in a solid balm formula two years ago. Tatcha took that great formula and created a cream version of it that launched a few short weeks ago. I’ve been curious about it but having been burned by the original version I wasn’t up for spending $52 to be potentially disappointed again. This is an oil-free liquid version that contains silk powder to gi...

Stop! Time for a Coffee Break!

Did I ever tell you how I don’t drink coffee (well, I do have the rare occasional macchiato) but I love the smell of it and I like smelling of it? I have so many different coffee fragrances it’s downright obscene. But there’s something so cozy about a warm, creamy coffee scent. That being said when Replica released their Coffee Break Perfume at Nordstrom over the Holidays I snatched it up super fly fast. It was so disappointing. I really don’t get the coffee element in this fragrance at al...

Sephora Ruby & Always Red Lip Last Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Ruby Sephora Ruby Lip Last Matte Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium, pinky-red with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It took almost 10 minutes for the formula to set to a mostly flat-matte finish that was transfer-resistant. The color payoff was nearly opaque in a single layer and could be built up to full coverage. The formula had a more velvety consistency that was smooth, lightweight, and flexible, and while it...

Here’s All the Newest Blushes To Add a Flush To Your Cheeks This Summer From Drugstore to High-End

Anyone else get terribly obsessed with blushes when Summer rolls around? I always concentrate a bit more on my cheeks in the Summer. Typically I’ll just do nothing on my eyes, load up on mascara, apply clear lipgloss, and go to town with a pretty blush on the weekends. I like that innocent doll-look that a blush can give you without applying a ton of heavier eye makeup! There’s a ton of new blushes popping up lately! Some I’ve tried, some I want to try, some on my wish list, and some I alre...

Iconic London is Sold At Sephora But With a Limited Catalog of Items

Iconic London is now being sold at! You might recognize the brand from Ulta where it originally become available first and also, where the brand stocks the most of their general catalog of products! Sephora has now picked up the brand as well but they only have some of the more recent releases like the new Sheer Blush. Unlike Ulta though, Sephora will carry the brand in stores starting this Fall on September 25th. I’m not sure if they plan to extend the lines offerings further b...

The Iconic Orgasm Gets An Upgrade

My love for NARS Cosmetics began with Orgasm blush. Since I dipped my brush into that first pan of the provocative pink shade of blush, it was love; I never looked back. Not only is NARS is one of my go-to makeup brands, but the now-iconic shade of Orgasm blush is also one of my go-to’s, as well. For this summer, the Iconic Orgasm shade has received an upgrade like never before with the new NARS Orgasm X Collection. It is the iconic Orgasm’s alter ego and the products will have you glowing all...

Sephora Crepe & Rosewood Lip Last Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Crepe Sephora Crepe Lip Last Matte Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, brownish peach with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which applied fairly evenly but seemed to separate a bit along my deeper lip lines during the initial application process. I waited a minute or so for it to start setting, and then I gently pressed my lips together to smooth out th...

Clarisonic Going Out of Business As of September 30th

It’s time to say goodbye to Clarisonic as they are going out of business as of September 30th, 2020. After nearly ten years Clarisonic is closing up shop and calling it a day. The entire site is 50% off and Ulta also has items on sale but most are already sold out. Sephora is also completely cleaned out. This is pretty sad day for a number of reasons! One of the saddest factors is that your Clarisonic, if you own one, will now be useless if you can’t purchase replacement brushes. It would ...

Sephora Auburn & Taffy Lip Last Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Auburn Sephora Auburn Lip Last Matte Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, deeper copper-red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff in a single stroke, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips without tugging. The texture felt like a melting gel-cream as it skated easily across my lips but didn’t feel traditionally wet–more velvety, like a silicone-based primer. The color took a s...

Sephora Orchid & Garnet Lip Last Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Orchid Sephora Orchid Lip Last Matte Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a rich, mediumd-ark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This particular shade took longer to dry down than most, so it didn’t look full-on matte until 15 to 20 minutes after application, though it was transfer-resistant before then (after about five minutes). It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly in a single layer. The...

Briogeo Top Picks And What Works Great for My Long, Wavy Hair

A lot of people are sort of amazed that Briogeo is founded and owned by a black woman. I think people assume it’s a brand under some larger parent company like L’Oreal but in reality it was founded and is owned by Nancy Twine. She’s one of the youngest African American women to launch a hair care line at Sephora being in her twenties at the time of launch. Nancy is one of those triple threats that we should recognize and admire for the fact that she is not only African American but also, bec...

Sephora #Lipstories Lip Balm Is Just What We Need Right Now

Available in a sating and a shimmer finish these new balms come in ten shades and have a soft textured formula with mango butter...

Do We Need Pumpkin Infused Brushes and Face Sponges? My Fall Loving Self Says Hell YES!

Pumpkin infused makeup brushes and a face sponges but really? That’s totally a thing! Meet the new Sephora Pumpkin Infused Brush Set and Sephora Pumpkin Infused Sponge Set for Fall 2020. Ok, yes, some smart of my mind is like, “Really? Pumpkin infused sponges and makeup brushes?

After That Ode To Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Perfume Here’s How To Get It On the Cheap

Yesterday I waxed poetry about Kilian’s Love Don’t Be Shy Perfume on Instagram. An ode to a very important perfume in my fragrance wardrobe!

If it’s something you’ve wanted to try for a long time $48 is way cheaper a price to pay than over $200! The travel spray is now available at Sephora. Are you a fan of this beautiful fragrance?

Bronze Natasha Denona Bronze Face Glow Palette ($55.00 for 0.4 oz.) is a new, seemingly-permanent palette that features four luminous shades with two cream-based formulas and two powder-based formulas. The cream formulas were disappointing and a deliberate departure from the brand’s prior formulas but not in a good way. The powder formulas were consistent with past releases–they worked best with denser brushes/firmer hand but have...
