About Me

This page is information about me. For more about getting in contact with me for product reviews- check out Additional Information/Disclosure Policy.

My name is Mimi. Though I share a first name with the rude blonde gal on the Drew Carey show, I'd like to think that I have better taste in makeup. However, sharing the same name also gives me weird hang ups about blue eyeshadow.

I read each and every comment. I try my hardest to respond back, but sometimes I get caught up on work, school, life. Just know that I appreciate each one. I also appreciate lurkers. Even if you never say anything, that's fine with me! I'm just happy you keep coming back to check out my content. 

I went to school for cosmetology in New Jersey and currently reside in the Sacramento area. I went back to college, on/off as my health allows. 

You probably want to know for comparison's sake that I'm closest to NC20-25 in MAC foundations and 117 in Make Up Forever HD foundation. The foundation shade that I've found to be the best match is Graftobian Hi Def Glamour Creme in Ingenue in the winter and Vixen in the summer. 

I have pretty sensitive combination skin with quite a few allergies. I use both products geared towards excess oil and products hydrate very dehydrated skin. 

If you'd like to contact me at any point, feel free to shoot me an email at mimi@makeupwithdrawal.com!
