• What’s in my makeup bag?

    I have been reading a lot of makeup bag posts lately and have decided to jump on the bandwagon and reveal what some of my favorite makeup to use is. I should tell you that I don’t use all of these everyday, just when I’m going out on the weekends or to an event. My morning makeup routine is very simple and I can share that with you as well! Good makeup that works for you is a rarity so when you find it, I’m a firm believer in sticking to it. I hardly ever venture out from what works for me, unless I received a sample in my Ipsy…

  • Review: Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil

    I think the last time I wrote about eyebrow pencils was when I was using Anastasia brow wiz. Don’t get me wrong, I still really like Anastasia BUT I have found a cheaper version that I thought I would share with you guys.

You will find it on an end-cap in the makeup section but if you look closely you will find some great products. It’s known for being very inexpensive but that shouldn’t stop you from taking a look. It’s no secret that I love brands such as Benefit and Anastasia but as of lately this girl is on a serious budget. The other day I was in my local CVS trying to find a cheapish nail polish. I of course went right over to OPI and Essie but I just couldn’t justify spending $8…

  • Eye Studio® Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadow

    So its actually been quite awhile since I’ve bought makeup that  hasn’t been Sephora brand or Avon.  Except while I was at CVS the other day buying body lotion (cocoa butter) to be exact I stumbled upon this new eye shadow by Maybelline. I had seen the commercials but never really thought anything of it, but then thought hey why not try it out. Well let me tell you that this new 24hr Tattoo eye shadow is hands down the best I’ve never used! I bought the dark asphalt grey which goes great with the grey eye liner I use but they have quite a few colors to choose from. I applied it…
