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.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Review: Has Urban Decay Finally Hit All The Right Notes?

Urban Decay has been my favorite makeup brand for over 10 years, but I, like many others, have been critical of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. Past problems have included an overabundance of shimmery shades with few mattes to help create a full look, and palettes featuring too many of the same tones, thus reducing the number of looks that could be created. UD has clearly been listening to our criticism by the looks of the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, but did they finally get it right or is there still something lacking? Today, I’m giving you an in-depth review of the palette, as well as what I would have done differently if I had designed this palette.

May Favorites 2017

Blah, blah, year flying by, blah, blah. Look ma, I’m a beauty blogger! I just finished writing a post on products that disappointed me and I think I forgot to put the sass fairy back in her cage. Hold on, be right back.

Ok, now where were we? Right, May favorites. I haven’t been doing favorites posts every month, so I do have quite a bit to get to today. Some of these are new products, but most are just new to me. Regardless, all of these are top shelf products that I’m excited to chat about. Grab a snack, settle in, and let’s get to it!

Disclosure: Erborian Glow Creme was sent to me as a PR sample, but I’ve not been asked to include it in this post, nor have I been compensated to talk about it. All of the other products in this post were purchased by me with my own money. This post does not contain affiliate links.
