Everyday Winter Makeup


New year – new me! Ok, not really.

However, the new year does give me an excuse to reinvent my makeup routine for the new year and to be me more precise, the new season. (Winter has been in full force since 2017, but I would like to pretend that it started on January 1st.)

I started a poll in my sidebar that asks the question of whether you, as a reader, would watch my YouTube videos if I made them. Well, SURPRISE, I already made one!

With that being said, I hope you still vote and tell me what you think.

Anyways, I am always doing something new with my makeup and depending on my outfit for the day, I like my makeup to be matchy-matchy with my outfit . But if I was going somewhere special or I wanted to feel better about myself, this is the makeup I would do.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette


The Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette caused quite a commotion when it was first released last year.

A lot of people did not like the formulation of the eyeshadows because of kickback and kickback means you will have a lot of wasted product.

Other problems include the shadows oxidizing and difficulty blending.

I am going to address each of the concerns individually because I think that is the best way to review this palette.

Before I jump into my opinions about this product, I am going to drop some retail information.

This palette comes with 14 eyeshadows: one holographic, two shimmers, and 11 mattes. It also comes with a dual-ended brush: one side is for blending and the other is for application.

It retails for $42.00, however, since this palette is not doing so hot, you can get a really good deal on it.

Desi x Katy x Dose of Colors Collection Review


Listen, I am obsessed with the Desi x Katy x Dose of Colors collection.

I have talked about this collection so much since I got my hands on it in November. I mentioned it in my last post, Dark Makeup Edit, and the liquid lipsticks were going to be the focal point in my next post. Then I was like, "hmm, maybe, I should write a post about the entire collection before I start mentioning it in every other post I write."

So here we are.

The collection includes:
  • The Girls eyeshadow quad ($28.00)
  • Fuego highlighter ($28.00)
  • Mírame highligher ($28.00)
  • Hot Fire liquid lipstick ($18.00)
  • Saváge liquid lipstick ($18.00)
  • No Shade lipstick ($16.00)
  • More Creamer Please Lipstick ($16.00)
  • Over The Top lipgloss ($15.00 | not pictured ;_;)

This collection is limited edition, however, Dose of Colors is still selling the remaining products from the collection. That includes the two lipsticks, the two liquid lipsticks, and the highlighter in Mírame.

Who knows, Dose of Colors might bring the collection back for funsies.

2017 Beauty Favorites


Well, well, well. ... Another year, another year-end favorites.

I thought my 2017 Year-End Beauty Favorites post would be a fitting return to the blogosphere. In my five month hiatus, I tried a lot of new products because my spending habits were out of control.

I have posted photos of some of these products all over my Instagram and I really hope you follow it because I think I have a sick Instagram theme going. Not to toot my horn though.
