Shiseido Facial Cotton Dupe!

To apply toner or eye makeup remover, I used to use cotton squares or rounds that I purchased at Target or the drugstore.  I would always go through so many because they were so flimsy that they would easily rip apart.

Last year after hearing so many amazing things about the Shiseido Facial Cotton Squares, I finally purchased some during a Sephora VIB 20% off sale.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Palette - Review

Last weekend, my friend Tanya (check out her beauty blog, Leopard Lace & Cheesecake!) and I exchanged Christmas gifts and one of the gifts she gave me is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Palette.  She knows me well!  Keep reading for my thoughts on this palette.

The packaging is so classy and simple.  It is a gray textured material with a magnetic closure.

Nars Audacious Mascara - Review - Mascara Monday

Hi Beauties!

Since I have a ton of mascaras (full size and sample size), in order to make sure I'm able to tell you guys my thoughts on all of them, I've decided to start a series called Mascara Monday.  They won't be every Monday, probably just every 2-3 weeks as my posting schedule permits.

The first mascara I will talk about is the new Nars Audacious Mascara.  I received this deluxe sample in a recent Sephora order.

ColourPop Back To Cool Lippie Stix Kit - Review - Frugal Friday

Hey Beauties!

I know I've never posted about them but I'm a huge fan of ColourPop's Lippie Stix.  For $5 a pop, they're an amazing deal!  A few months ago they released a 6 lipstick set called the Back To Cool set and there were several colors in the kit that I was interested in so I went ahead and ordered it.

This year, Ofra Cosmetics came out with their own line of Liquid Lipsticks and they quickly became very popular in the beauty community.  The reviews I read and watched on YouTube claimed that of all the liquid lipstick brands that are popular right now, these have the best formula.  I purchased 3 shades.

Sigma Beauty Mascaras* - Review

Hi Beauties!

I already know that I love Sigma's makeup brushes and eye shadows, so when I heard that they added mascaras to their makeup range, I knew I had to try them!  These mascaras can be used separately or layered together to create a look tailored just for your lashes.  Each mascara has a unique wand that will create volume, length, or curl.

How to Deep Clean Makeup Brushes

I think we can all agree that cleaning our makeup brushes is quite the chore.  Over the years, I've tried many different cleansers and techniques and I feel like I've found the best products that will make this process quick and much less painful.

The items I recommend are the Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Mat, Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Pure Castile Liquid Soap, and Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner.

Disclaimer: Please forgive the dirty cleaning mat, my liquid foundation seems to have stained the plastic.
