Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner

Though I love makeup, it’s rare for me to find something that has the “wow effect”. The “wow effect” is when I try something on and I say (or think) “Wow!

I am, of course, referring to those things in which mascara is sold when I say “mascara tubes”. As I think about all the mascaras out there that I want to try, (is it just me or is there a new one about once a month?) I realized that mascara tubes really are too big. […]

I quickly found a match that was a 100% match to my skin (Tawny, in case you’re wondering), swirled a powder brush in the compact and dusted it on. Instantly, my skin was even-toned […]

Review: Benefit Honey Snap Out Of It Scrub

Recently, I was given a sample of Benefit’s Honey Snap Out Of It Scrub. This scrub wasn’t much to look at so I wasn’t sure whether it would be good or not, but I was pleasantly surprised. The scrub is creamy with finely ground pieces of almond in it. Despite the creaminess, however, the scrub […]
