Shop the Stash: Brows

Has anyone else noticed that I am SUPER overdue for my next installment of Shop the Stash?! I’ve been a little bit distracted with all the new goodies I took home from Gen Beauty (can you blame me?), which means my quest for rediscovery got temporarily put on pause. But now that I’ve had plenty of time to play I’m ready to get back to business! For those of you who might have missed out on my first couple of […]

Beautiful and Affordable Brushes from Juno & Co.

Juno & Co. Makeup Brushes

If there is one thing I’ve learned in the many years I’ve spent blogging about beauty, its to never underestimate the importance of a good makeup brush. Not only do they make application easier and faster, but they can also take mediocre products and help them perform even better than expected. Now, as much as I absolutely love brands like Sigma and think they’re worth the investment, I also know that dropping $120 on a set of brushes is something that […]

Fresh for Spring: The New Pixi Pretties Collection

Pixi Beauty Pixi Pretties Collabs 2018

If you were to ask me what beauty brand exudes springtime, I don’t think anyone could top Pixi. From their pastel green packaging, to their glow inducing, rose-infused skincare, to their soft, ethereal makeup, Pixi’s products are basically the cosmetic equivalent of frolicking in a field of flowers. Sweet, feminine, and effortless, Pixi Beauty is the perfect brand for more minimal makeup lovers, and is one of my go-tos whenever I’m craving a lighter look. As we’re FINALLY starting to […]

A Lesson in Luxury from Emile Cordon

Emile Cordon Lip Cashmere

As someone that grew up in a coupon-clipping, sale-shopping, extra-frugal household, my relationship with the idea of luxury has been a complicated one. Purchases were all about practicality and purpose. As long as it got the job done, spending any more than the bare minimum was unnecessary. That being said, your girl has also always had expensive tastes. My father used to joke that if you took all the price tags off everything in a store, and asked me to […]

I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready to wrap up 2016. It’s not that this was a bad year (although there were definitely some less than spectacular moments), it’s just that I’m excited to wipe the slate clean and make 2017 my best blogging year to date.

Makeup Must-Haves for Oily Skin

Fellow oily skinned friends. Tis the seasons of our greatest struggles. It’s funny, because after another long New England winter I was starting to believe that I could call my skin combination. LOL…yeah no. As soon as I start needing the AC my oil glands kick it into hyper drive, and all of my winter and spring makeup routines leave me looking like the greasiest of greaseballs. Fortunately, my years of testing and trying various beauty products have led me […]

The more I try and review, the better able I am to compare and contrast so you guys can reap the benefits! I know I’m […]

Get Your Sparkle On | A Too Faced Glitter Glue Review

Call me a girly girl, but I love me some glitter. I don’t care if you’re three or thirty, you have to admit that there’s something appealing about a little bit of sparkle. Okay, so maybe Lady Gaga at the Superbowl takes things to an extreme, but not all glittery looks need to be that intense. A little glimmer on your eyelids can be flirty, feminine, and glamorous without needing to go over the top. The biggest issue I have […]
