May Favorites


Unlike most months, May hasn't seemed to fly by! It started with my final exams, then a glorious week of relaxation, and then my summer job started up with even longer hours than usual. Of course, being busy never stopped me from finding new things to enjoy--if anything it leads me to splurging because I've worked so hard. So here are all of the things I've been loving this month!

May Collective Haul


Over the past month or so I've been making a lot of little beauty purchases--an online order here, a drugstore purchase there--and I noticed it's all been adding up! Often I'll buy a product and like it, but never get around to doing a full review on it so I figured this would be a good way to share my thoughts about my recent purchases!

Adding a Pop of Color


Lately I’ve been feeling more adventurous with my make-up and I think that is due to the changing weather and the discovery/rediscovery of some more colorful products!

April/May Empties and Reviews


I’ll confess: I’m a hoarder. I’ve been known to keep mascaras for a year after their expiration dates “just in case”.

Recently I decided to reorganize my make-up so I also tested each product and got rid of anything that seemed old or used up. Therefore a lot of these empties are not entirely empty, but rather products that I’m done with.

Review: Maybelline the Nudes Palette


With all of the neutral palettes available at the drugstore, I decided to try one out for myself! The one that caught my eye the most is the Maybelline The Nudes palette, which includes a dozen shades in a variety of finishes. I’ve put this palette to the test and can’t wait to tell you my thoughts!

Everyday Makeup: Drugstore Edition


 
With high-end foundations alone ranging from $30 to $45, some days I can’t justify wearing my expensive make-up, especially when I have drugstore products that work just as well! On those days I turn to my trusty, affordable favorites to ensure that I still look nice without “wasting” my more expensive products.

Now that the house is empty and I am free to do crazy make-up in peace, I decided it’s time for another trying unusual beauty looks post! If you follow any make-up brands on Instagram you’ve probably seen the blue eyebrows, multi-colored lips, and intricate eyeliner that I’ve seen so I decided to give some of the looks a try!
