Sonia G Worker Two and Pencil Two Brushes

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

The beauty community's resident brush expert Sonia of Sweet Makeup Temptations launched her own line of brushes a few months ago and last week, released a few more.  The initial offering was tempting but when I saw the new brushes I was absolutely taken with Worker Two and Pencil Two.

Hair Care Routine

Monday, March 5, 2018
I've been cutting back on my skincare purchases lately... or so I thought. In reality, I adjusted to the cutbacks in one area of beauty by augmenting another.  I've been pretty focused on my hair these past few months, so I thought I would write up a post about my hair care routine.

The Big Koyudo Post

Friday, March 2, 2018

I've been looking back at some of my brush purchases of last year and internally went yikes as I realized I had been meaning to post about some of them for over 13 months. I ordered my first Koyudo brushes last year and aside from mentioning some of these in passing on Instagram, I never really posted pictures or raved about the quality of their Kolinsky hair brushes. In the meantime, quite a few of their brushes that were limited edition went out of stock, so I really wanted to write about these as the last few remaining stock starts to dwindle.

Mask Madness, Vol. X: [I'm From] Volcanic Mask

Monday, February 26, 2018

Good morning! Another installment of my mask series. I'm not letting myself buy any new jars of wash off masks until I review them. It's working out pretty well, I only have a few more to go before I'm all caught up. Today's mask is another one I bought from the brand [I'm From] because the Vitamin Tree was such a success that I wanted to try the sister masks. If you recall, the Honey was not a winner in my book (review here), so I was hoping the Volcanic would balance out my dislike and redeem the brand in my eyes.

Tom Ford SS18 Soleil D'Ambre Palette

Friday, February 23, 2018

I was doing so well on my low-buy. So well. I'd manage to go about a month without picking up any more skincare and hadn't really lusted after any new makeup. Then I spied the spring/summer Tom Ford Soleil Palette called Soleil D'Ambre, and I immediately liked it more than the previous year's SS17 Solar Exposure. I managed to stomp all over my low-buy with just this one item.
