Get Glowing with Glossybox

Do I have too many beauty products?  In my humble opinion, no.  Although I often find myself mumbling to myself "We're gonna need a bigger boat" when trying to find the space for new arrivals.  But if you're looking to curb spending too much dough on beauty goods, subscription services are the most bang for… Continue reading Get Glowing with Glossybox

In the Rotation: Faves by NYX

Years ago, I was walking though the makeup aisle with a friend who moonlighted as a drag queen.  He suddenly stopped in his tracks and started excitedly grabbing what seemed like a hundred lipsticks off of the shelves.  A stream of consciousness flowed from his lips gushing about his love of the brand NYX.  I… Continue reading In the Rotation: Faves by NYX

Summer Glow: Pixi Skintreats Mists

Summer.  The time where those devout makeup lovers slather on the spackle in the hopes that it doesn’t run down your face like melted ice cream from the heat.  But we try.  Oh boy, do we try.  We douse on the fixing spray as if it were a form of super glue that will keep… Continue reading Summer Glow: Pixi Skintreats Mists

Oh Boxycharm, how I love thee.  Let me count the ways!  Boxycharm (find it here) is an “online beauty subscription that surprises you each month with 4-5 full-size and luxury-size products from popular and upcoming beauty brands.”  But to put it in simple terms...IT IS AWESOME.  It will cost you $21 per month if you… Continue reading Boxycharm May 2017

Ipsy May Glam Bag

I have a tendency to place online orders and forget what I ordered.  I know it’s not only me who has done this.  Admit it!  Brown or white boxes arrive and I have no idea what the contents are before I tear it open.  You’ll then hear my screaming “Ahhhhh!  I forgot I ordered this… Continue reading Ipsy May Glam Bag
