Matte Madness


I love lipstick.  Like have a serious obsession with lipstick.  I have tried hundreds of different brands of lipstick over the years, from high end to drugstore.  Once thing I have found to be true - you don't have to spend a lot to get a quality lipstick that is not only comfortable but will last you more than a couple of hours on your lips.  When I find a lipstick line I really like, I can't wait to share it with you all.  This is absolutely the case with the new line of matte lipsticks recently released by Maybelline.

Too Faced Cat Eye Palette


I am a fan of Too Faced Cosmetics.  They have some of the best bronzers on the market plus some of my favorite eye shadow palettes, including the Pretty Rebel collection and Matte Shadow collection. They have done a great job again with the release of the Cat Eyes collection.

Kylie Jenner Beauty on a Budget


No matter what your feelings are on the Kardashian/Jenner clan, it is hard to deny that all the ladies are trend setters in makeup.  None more so than the youngest daughter, Kylie, as of late.  Her look is gorgeous and very versatile.  It is also surprisingly easy to achieve, and works on almost every skin tone and any age.  Keep reading to find out how I was able to create a similar look using ALL products (even brushes) from the drugstore, Target, and Ulta.***

Milani Bella Eyes Shadow Singles


I try to mix high and low end products when I do my tutorials.  I do believe you can find high performance beauty on a budget, and often look in the drugstore aisles for some great deals.  I have talked about my love for Milani Color Statement Lipsticks and raved about their Baked Blush - this even made it into my top products of last year.  Now, Milani has launched a line of eye shadow singles called Bella Eyes.  I love the name! Now do I love the product?

Have Beauty, Will Travel.


I'm a product junky.  Between building up my makeup kit, testing out new products for the blog, and just general enthusiasm for beauty, I have a lot of products.  However, when I travel I like to pack light. Or at least my version of light.  To do that, I like to bring lots of multi-taskers with a few indulgence items mixed in.  It is for a vacation, after all.

Younique 3D Fiber Lash System - Yay or Nay?


Beauty forums, Instagram, and Facebook have been lighting up with people talking about Younique.  The main product people are discussing is the Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lash System.  One of their reps was nice enough to send me a sample to review.  I would classify this product as something you are either going to love or hate, but I will try to take an unbiased position for this review.  First, let's talk about how this mascara works.
