Pat McGrath Labs Subversive MOTHERSHIP III Palette

Tuesday, April 2, 2019

For a long time, I wanted Pat McGrath Subversive but balked at the price. While I have purchased palettes north of the $100 mark, something about paying MSRP feels ever so slightly offensive. I waited for a good discount, even passed by a 20% Sephora sale and my patience was reward with 25% off on the Pat McGrath Labs website.

2019 Newly Reformulated: Missha Borabit Becomes Probio Ampoule

Wednesday, March 20, 2019




I've written about Missha Borabit Long Name Ampoule before - I first received it to try for free from 08Liter and it immediately became an HG product for me. Over the last two years I've bought at least four bottles of the stuff, I've tried to look for alternatives but they just didn't stack up. When I saw that Missha had released a new version of this ampoule now called Probio, I was eager to start it after finishing yet another bottle of Borabit.


Review: Sonia G. Worker Three & Crease Two

Sunday, March 17, 2019



A couple months ago, I picked up two more brushes from Sonia G. Those red handles, how could I resist?

The only thing that held me back was waiting for Worker Three and Crease Two to be individually available from Beautylish.


Four Mineral Sunscreens, Compared

Saturday, March 16, 2019


I have four sunscreens in my possession, and thought I'd compare them in case you also gravitate towards zinc oxide and titanium dioxide sunscreens. The ones I'd like to chat about are EltaMD UV Physical Broad-Spectrum SPF 41, Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50, Farmacy Green Screen SPF 30,  and Trader Joe's Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 50. 


Top Ten Favorite Eyeshadows (That Are Still Available)

Thursday, March 14, 2019


I recently posted a photo of my entire eye shadow stash on Instagram and it prompted a question from @anafterglow: what are my top ten favorites? I decided to pick ten that were still available, though truthfully many of my most unique powder shadows were limited edition and long gone. Nothing is worse than seeing something you really like, only to find out that there's no way of getting it - a tad cruel for me to do that to you, right?
