Trader Joe’s Head To Toe

When I mentioned to Ange that I ran out of my Josie Maran moisturizer, firstly she had no idea who Josie Maran was since she’s not into beauty brands.

At Ipsy’s GenBeauty we received a ton of swag. And I decided to review a few of the brands I’ve never tried before. At the Jesse’s Girl booth, we received a couple of their Julie G line polishes. I also did get a manicure and I fell in love with their Jet Set Quic-Dry Top Coat….

Beauty Review: Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

When you see a mascara rated 4.7 stars out of 5 over at ULTA, as is the case for Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara, and it costs only $4.99 USD, you are almost obligated to buy it. Normally I pay four of five times that amount on one tube. So this seemed promising. Granted, I…

Beauty Review: Anastasia Brow Wiz

Stop the presses! I found my perfect eyebrow pencil. I’ve bought countless brands, brands I won’t even mention because their brow pencils are just awful.

Beauty Review: NYX Pin-Up Tease Boudoir Mascara

Hey guys! Recently I picked up a couple of inexpensive mascaras to try out, and this was one of them: NYX Pin-Up Tease Boudoir Mascara from their Boudoir collection. Let’s start with the wand.

Beauty Review: Vera Mona Color Switch

Beauty Review: Absolute New York Ink Pen

On a whim, I picked up an Absolute New York Ink Pen. It reminded me of my favorite eyeliner, Kat Von D Tattoo Ink. It was $2.00 USD so it couldn’t hurt, right? My sister always wanted to be a model, so I took the opportunity to use her as my guinea, errr I mean…
