I'm A Porn Star — & I Spend $8,790 A Year On My Beauty Routine

For the past 11 years, Lindsey Leigh has been an adult film actress. It's the kind of profession that comes with certain aesthetic expectations — despite many feminist directors working to make them more inclusive. Boobs, for the most part, tend to be big. Makeup tends be heavy. Hair tends be luscious, just like the lips. Skin is largely free of not only wrinkles, but also scars, body hair, and bumps.As Leigh has worked her way through this industry, she has spent thousands and thousands of dol...

The Best Under-$20 Foundations For Dry Skin

No matter your skin type, most of us have experienced dry, flaky skin at one point or another — be it due to genetics or a seasonal shift in the weather. In fact, it's a common misconception that oily skin types don't suffer from dry patches or overall dehydration.Anyone who's tried to conceal a cheek covered in flakes or dry patches knows its a feat that can make you lose faith in the entire foundation category, all before you take a sip of your morning brew. Apart from sufficiently hydrating ...

Revlon Colorstay Prep & Protect Primer Review & Swatches

Revlon Colorstay Prep & Protect Primer ($13.99) is a new 3-in-1 formula that acts as a moisturizer, makeup primer and SPF all in one. Everywhere I look lately it seems like the beauty world is being influenced by Japanese makeup and skincare. Earlier today I spoke about Benefit’s new Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation and after that the new Maybelline Color Sensational Shine Compulsion Lipsticks. We’ve had plenty of Korean beauty moments in the past two years in the beauty world but nowadays it s...

Hard Candy Look Pro Bare It All Foundation Stick Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Look Pro Bare It All Foundation Stick is a new foundation and concealer stick that the brand recently launched with a $7 budget friendly price. It seems like a lot of brands are launching foundation sticks for Spring/Summer and I’m quite ok with that as I find them very easy to apply, travel-friendly, and just an overall good choice for swiping on and going. I don’t wear a lot of foundation so quick swipe on and go works perfectly for me as I pay more attention to concealing under my...

Kiko Free Soul Blurring & Moisturizing Face Cream Review & Swatches

Kiko Free Soul Blurring & Moisturizing Face Cream ($28) is a new facial primer moisturizer hybrid formula that acts to hydrate skin as it primes for makeup while blurring the appearance of pores and fine lines. Sound familiar? Probably because it is as Clinique introduced Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer is the same concept! Clinique’s formula gets a bad wrap but I’m actually one that really enjoyed it and found myself repurchasing it when I ran out. Of course, this is one reason I was curious a...

E.L.F. Prep & Blur Stick Review

E.L.F. Prep & Blur Stick ($6) is a new budget friendly face primer stick with a silicone-free formula that smooths fine lines and visible pores while prepping for makeup. I was actually quite surprised this was silicone-free! I expected it would be along the lines of Milani’s Instant Touch-Up Blur with that poured and solidified silicone primer texture. This is good news for me as I don’t like silicone primers anyway as I have drier skin and prefer more hydrating ones. However, I do have smalle...

Becca Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer Not Doing Much for These Puffy Eyes

I recently purchased Becca Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer not only because I wanted to review it but also, because it was a product I was highly interested in trying out for myself since I fit right into the target audience for this type of product. It’s actually an eye balm which promises to have a cooling effect once applied that smooths and blurs finer lines while reducing puffiness. I am a strong believer that in order to conceal my puffy eyes I need a solid, pigmented concealer. And for fin...

Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation Review & Swatches

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25HR Breathable Foundation ($6.99) is a new lightweight foundation that launched in the UK earlier last year and is now making its way to the US for Spring 2018. I’m pretty excited to see all these new lightweight, fluid drugstore foundations that are launching! I really liked Almay Best Blend Forever Makeup and so far, Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation is turning into a hit for me as well. This is saying something as I am a snob when it comes to foundation and c...

I’m Very Excited that MAC Studio Waterweight Concealer is Finally Available!

I’m so excited that MAC Studio Waterweight Concealer ($23) has finally launched. I feel like I read about this release ages and ages ago and I actually completely forgot about it up until this morning when I noticed it is now available at Ulta.com. You might recall I reviewed MAC Studio Waterweight Foundation three years ago and I’m actually somewhat surprised that this concealer didn’t launch along with the foundation. Just seems logical to release base products together you know? None the ...

Origins Original Skin Pore Perfecting Cooling Primer Review & Swatches

Origins Original Skin Pore Perfecting Cooling Primer with Willowherb ($32) is a new cooling mousse primer that hydrates skin while diffusing the look of pores and prepping the skin for makeup. This is perfect example of a product that was heavily influenced by Japanese and Korean beauty as this style of primer was popular a few years ago. A few products that are similiar but not quite the same are Etude House Aloha Ice Sherbert Primer, Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse, ...

Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation Review & Swatches

Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation ($17) is the brand’s first-ever full color range of foundation which is popping up now at drugstores in eight shade selections. This is a mighty big step for Physicians Formula who typically offers most of their foundation products in 2 to 4 shades at best. I’m not sure if they plan on releasing even more colors as their Instagram account relates that they will have a full color range of this foundation available. So, the display I saw at the drugstore ...

Almay Best Blend Forever Makeup Review & Swatches

Almay Best Blend Forever Makeup ($16.99) is a new foundation and moisturizer hybrid with an SPF 40 that’s launching at drugstores now for Spring 2018. This is probably one of my favorite launches of 2018 although to be fair there haven’t been that many launches yet for 2018 but regardless I’m really enjoying it. I’ve always been a rather big fan of tinted moisturizers since I’m blessed with fairly good skin that doesn’t require heavier coverage but still needs it to ease dullness, even out skin...

Taste Beauty Frenchie the Bulldog for Holiday 2017

Taste Beauty Frenchie the Bulldog ($10) arrives just in time for the Holiday season at Sephora.com. This is Taste Beauty’s third lip balm release on Sephora’s site and will be a sure fire winner with French Bulldog fans I’m sure! This dome-shaped lip balm sphere hydrates dry, chapped lips and is scented and flavored like festive peppermint. Frenchie is sporting his ugly holiday sweater which can be removed (and put back on) after the Holiday season! Taste Beauty Frenchie the Bulldog for Holid...

Cargo Star Wars Leia Organa Compact Mirror Review

I picked up the Cargo Star Wars The Last Jedi Leia Organa Compact Mirror ($28) when it launched on the Kohl’s website last week. As you know Cargo recently teamed up with Disney and Star Wars to release a makeup and accessory collection featuring some of the most powerful women in that galaxy far, far away. The Cargo Star Wars Compact Mirror is available in four designs which of which features characters from the light and dark side. It was very, very, very, very, did I say very? Very, very dif...

Revlon Photoready Insta-Filter Foundation Review & Swatches

Revlon Photoready Insta-Filter Foundation ($17.99) is a new flawless finish foundation that launched with the Revlon Fall 2017 Collection. This is probably one of the more expensive drugstore foundations I’ve run into recently. $18 bucks for drugstore foundation? Can you say whoa? That’s pretty crazy….! None the less, I decided to order it and check it out for myself as the “fresh faced, natural finish sounded promised. Here’s my review and swatches. Revlon Photoready Insta-Filter Foundatio...

MAC It’s Snowing Extra Dimension Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

MAC It’s Snowing Extra Dimension Eyeshadow is one of five limited edition shades that launched with the MAC Snow Ball Holiday 2017 Collection. It’s been a while since I purchased MAC Eyeshadow but now was a good time to do so as the Holiday Collection is quite stunning. Housed in fine beige gold compacts with a crack ice finish and a snowflake design embossed on the shadows you can obviously understand what makes these so very appealing. Not to mention these all of these are the yummy, creamy E...

Physicians Formula Le Velvet Foundation Review & Swatches

Physicians Formula Le Velvet Foundation is a re-promoted cream foundation compact that the brand has re-introduced for it’s 80th Anniversary this year. I can’t say I remember Le Velvet Foundation and I’ve been using Physicians Formula for many years now but if it’s a fond favorite of yours you’ll be happy to see its return I’m sure. This SPF 15 cream formula promises full coverage with a long wear and is available in four shade selections. Let’s take a look! Physicians Formula Le Velvet Fou...

L’Oreal Pure Clay Cleanser, Detox & Brighten Review & Swatches

L’Oreal Pure Clay Cleanser, Detox & Brighten ($5.99) is one of three new clay-to-mousse daily cleansers that contain 3 different clays that act to lift away dirt and oil and live duller skin brighter and more even toned. This formula is actually a retake on the L’Oreal Clay facial masks that launched last year. I got ok with L’Oreal Pure-Clay Mask Exfoliate and Refine Pores last year so I decided to check out the Pure Clay Cleanser Collection and see what the deal was. Here’s my review and thou...

This or That Beauty: Cream or Powder Foundation ?

Foundation is a unique experience for everyone. Some folks like powder, others prefer creams….! Some love the joys of a matte shine-free finish and others like the hydrating feel of a non-clinging cream. It’s all about your skin type and whether you’re oily, dry, or a combination of both. What’s your choice? Do you prefer cream or powder foundations? I prefer cream and if possible I enjoy fluid even better. I have drier skin so, that’s the formula that works best for me and looks the mo...

Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm Review & Swatches

Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm ($18) is a new ooey gooey lip balm that I absolutely had to get my hands on as the caramel scent, flavor, and shade was looking like a perfect natural Fall shade for my lips not to mention a hydrating one. Fresh has been sort of stepping outside the realms of Sugar Lip Treatment with the introduction of several different lip balms, glosses, and treatments lately like Sugar Cream Lip Treatment, Sugar Shine Lip Treatment, and now a potted lip balm. Don’t get...

We’ll Have To Find Something New To Replace Benefit Lemon Aid At Some Point

I guess at some point we’ll have to come to terms with the fact that our supply of Benefit Lemon Aid will deplete. I recently hauled a few pots from HSN.com but I’m going to run out one day and I want to be prepared for that day by having some sort of backup in place. So far, I haven’t really discovered anything to replace the formula but I’ve been exploring different options one of which was the failed Tarte Lid Lock Clay Eye Base. Urban Decay Eden Primer Potion is definitely one worth looking...

Want To Try a New Facial Primer?

I’m one of those people that’s always on to the next best thing. I mean, half the fun of makeup and beauty is the hunt isn’t it? I secretly never want to find the glossiness of lipglosses, the best and creamiest concealer, or the longest wearing blush. Why? Because I like trying new stuff, I like hunting out brand new products. It’s part of what makeup so much fun! Anyway, if you’re anything at all like me you might be interested to try out the new Botanic Farm Soft Cover Pore Balm Primer!...

Olay Age Defying Advanced with Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Gel Cream Moisturizer Review & Swatches

I don’t really need more moisture at the moment since it is Summer but I purchased Olay Age Defying Advanced with Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Gel Cream Moisturizer because it was too tempting to resist as a dry skin girl who’s always looking for a way to hydrate. Lately, the drugstore has been flooded with Hyaluronic Acid everything. Neutrogena released a Hydro Boost Skincare and Makeup Collection earlier this Spring but I wasn’t terribly impressed with the skincare aspect of the release. But I’m...

Lancome Dual Finish Highlighter Gets Your Glow On With a Creamy Texture

I figure if I’m going to use a highlighter it needs to be with easy to apply formula. Lancome Dual Finish Highlighter ($39.50) is a new dual-textured highlighter starts out life as a cream but turns melts into a fine powder during application. The idea is the create a smooth, even finish on skin because all know how tricky highlighter can be during application and the fact that it clings and adheres to ever single minor imperfection on your face. Lancome’s formula was created to melt into skin...

Makeup Inspiration from Disney Princesses Part I: The Classic Era

Classic makeup looks from some classy ladies. Disney princesses have been around for ages now, and it's amazing how they're still as popular as ever! These iconic characters don't just appeal to kids anymore: they're extremely loved among young adults and twenty-somethings, too. Disney Princesses, to me, were never mere damsels in distress. These powerful ladies taught me so many important life lessons about being strong for myself, fighting for what matters, and caring for others. They've insp...
