No. I WILL NOT get over it.

Note: This is another nontraditional post for this blog. I thought last week’s was the only different post I was going to write, and I was wrong. I will most likely continue writing these kinds of posts here. Because while beauty and fitness are passions of mine, the below is much more important. I’ve heard

Note: This is not my typical type of post. Then again, this is not a typical night.  This past weekend, my husband and I stopped in Junction, Texas to stretch our legs and buy some bottled water. We’d been driving from El Paso on our way to Austin to see Adele in concert. The drive

Review: Sephora Collection Supreme Cleansing Oil

I’m having a moment with Sephora cleansers. In the name of science, I figured I’d try another of their cleansers (especially since we’re barreling towards winter, which gives us a set of different skin issues altogether). Even though I’d always been weary of face oils, I noticed I’ve been having a few dry patches on

Review: FabFitFun Fall 2016 Box

If you follow me on instagram (please do), you know that last week I got my FabFitFun Fall box and I was pretty excited. I decided to wait a week to do a review of the box to make sure that I had enough time to sample the goodies inside and give you a fair

Review and Swatches: M.A.C. Lipstick in Breathing Fire

I’m a sucker for a bright lipstick. Even in early fall. So, when I was at the M.A.C. store in the Miracle Mile Shops in Las Vegas, I was drawn to the shade Breathing Fire (it’s a limited edition shade from their Blue Nectar summer collection) and was a gonner. I was surprised to see

Review: Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Powder

I know, everyone raves about the Laura Mercier setting powder and here I am buying something that is definitely NOT that setting powder. I don’t have anything against Laura Mercier’s setting powder, but it makes my skin itch for some unknown reason, so in looking for a solution to this conundrum, I stumbled upon Kat

Review and Swatches: Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Bright Raspberry

Ah, fall is almost upon us, which means deep berries and reds are right around the corner. As with everything, every good makeup bag needs a transitional color to take us from the ease of summer to the Pumpkin Spice Latte wonderland of riding boots worn with leggings and a vest. The Bobbi Brown Art

Review: Peter Thomas Roth's Un-Wrinkle Turbo Line Smoothing Toning Lotion

In my ongoing battle to override every bad skin decision I made in my 20s, I stumbled across the Un-Wrinkle Turbo Line Smoothing Toning Lotion ($38) by Peter Thomas Roth (a line that despite being slightly overpriced, I have grown to appreciate). When I had my makeup done at the Sephora in the Miracle Mile

Review and Swatches: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blush in Foxglove

I’m in love. Radiantly in love with this blush. I’ve been using it ever since our trip to Vegas (3 weeks!) and I haven’t seen a single dent on the pan.
