Review: L'Oreal Pro Glow Foundation

As much as I wanted to try L'Oreal's popular Pro Matte foundation, I have dry skin and matte bases plus dry patches equals a big no-go zone for me. So when L'Oreal released a glow-friendly sister foundation, I immediately wanted to test it out!

Holiday Ulta Haul

Last weekend I went downstate to celebrate Christmas with my mom's family. My aunts took all of the older cousins out shopping and made stops at a lot of stores we don't have in the north--Target, Meijer, Ulta, and practical every store in the mall! I was mostly shopping for clothes but I had to splurge in Ulta. I also received some new releases from Maybelline in the mail just before we started the journey south so I've included those as well!

Review: Sephora Vintage Filter Palette

I have been looking for a more colorful, but still neutral palette to broaden my horizons with. While out shopping on Black Friday I popped into my local Sephora, which only caries the in-house brand, and their Colorful filter palettes caught my eye. They all look really pretty and there are a few different options: Vintage, Sunbleached, and Overcast. I was drawn to the Vintage palette immediately and the swatches seemed promising, so I made it mine.

How Much Have I Spent on My Blog?

I have had Beauty From Katie for over a year now and blogging has turned into one of my favorite hobbies. At first, I wasn’t committed to being a serious blogger but as I got more personally invested in my blog, and saw the opportunities that could come from it, I decided that I wanted to step up the quality a little bit. I don’t think there is a blogger out there who is perfectly happy with their blog but I love the direction mine is taking and I want to continue improving! Sometimes that means putting not just more time, but more money into it.

November Empties

And the monthly makeup decluttering continues! For a certified hoarder like myself, that is a major accomplishment and I hope I can continue it into December. Any product that I don't enjoy using or don't use often, I'm tossing or giving away. It isn't recorded here but I gave away a few eyeshadow palettes that I don't like, and I also went through my eyeliners and trashed the ones that are old! Hence all the liners in this post...
