Becca Backlight Priming Filter Review

Becca Backlight Priming Filter is a water-based illuminating primer that creates a radiant glow. It also softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I’ve fallen head over heels in love with this primer, and today I’m telling you why.

Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick Review

Marc Jacobs’ cosmetics line has consistently sought to push the envelope and create innovative, fusion products. However, sometimes those fusion products don’t manage to improve upon the original products in a meaningful way. Today, we’re taking a look at the new Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick to see if it offers any advantages over a traditional lip gloss, or if it’s just more Insta-bait luring us in to a mediocre product in cool packaging.

The Best Foundation for Summer: MAC Face & Body Review

When most people talk about Las Vegas weather, they describe it as being a “dry heat.” This is true for most of the year, but come July, not only do we have temperatures between 100-115 degrees Fahrenheit on a daily basis, our humidity soars up to 40-90% thanks to summer thunderstorms. In other words, summer in Vegas feels like living in a sauna. As you can imagine, keeping makeup on in this weather is a challenge, but I’ve finally discovered a foundation that can handle the heat. MAC Face & Body is the best foundation for a hot, humid summer.

Glossier Lidstar Review: Moon and Lily

Sometimes I do this weird thing where I hesitate to take interest in super popular things. Like, I didn’t start reading Harry Potter until book 3 came out because I just couldn’t imagine the books would live up to the hype (they did). Whether it’s hype anxiety or me being a hipster for two seconds, I’m not really sure, but it kept me from giving in to Glossier for a good long while. Glossier Lidstar was the product that finally broke me down because I had to have the shade Moon. It’s truly one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen. I figured if I was already placing an order for Moon, I might as well order a few more things, right? I’ve already reviewed the Generation G Lipstick if you’re curious about that one. Today, however, we’re talking about Lidstar, specifically the shades Moon and Lily.

My Top 3 Black Eyeliner Pencils

Black eyeliner is a product that most makeup junkies always have in their makeup bag. It’s simultaneously one of the most boring makeup products out there and one of the most essential for many of us. Seriously, who else has groaned after receiving yet another black eyeliner in a subscription bag? I sure as hell have. It’s not an exciting product, yet we’ve all got that motivation to find out which one is the very best. Today I’m sharing 3 of the best black eyeliner pencils I’ve ever tried (including one from the drugstore!). Shoutout to everyone who voted in my Instagram poll letting me know you wanted to see this!
