Self Care: My Detox Favorites

My day-to-day is a full face of makeup while I work with people. A full face of primer, foundation, concealer, highlighter, blush, brow powder, eyeshadow and all those other things I lob on to my face for work. It’s my uniform. Every once in awhile my skin gets congested or I get super sick because

Empties: Dec 2018

I feel it’s important for me to highlight the products I’ve used every last drop of and loved so much that I’ll repurchase. It’s rare that I find a product that tickles my fancy since I am so darn picky. First thing in my list is the Trader Joe’s Organic Argan Oil. I rub this

Joah Cosmetics Update: Smack-a-ron Matte Velvet Lipstick

It is time for an update on this lipstick. I’ve had it in my purse for two weeks straight. While I do love the color and how long lasting it is… I hate the packaging now. I don’t know how it cracked. It’s not like I go around throwing my purse or my work pack

LA Colors Holiday Giftsets: Eyeshadow

Today I cracked open this new LA Colors Nude Eyes palette. It retails for $4.99 and is only in CVS stores. LA Colors is cruelty free according to their website. I have to say that the picture online looks nothing like the actual product in person. Also the packaging is really cheap. There is nothing

Covergirl: CRUELTY FREE!?!?

Yes. It’s true. Covergirl has now been Leaping Bunny certified. When? Today! This is a big step in the right direction and even though I have heard some not-so-nice things about how they treat their employees… You still have to recognize this is progress. I can’t wait for the vegan list to come out! Early

Experiments In K-Beauty: Peach Slices Lip Mask

I get this question on the daily… “Are there any cruelty-free K-beauty brands?” Yes. Peach Slices, which is sold at CVS, is cruelty-free. I actually sent an email to the company to ask them about it. I wish I still had a copy of the email. So tonight I gave the lip mask another chance…

Love Beauty And Planet: Day 2 Dry Shampoo

Just a quick blurb this morning about this dry shampoo. I don’t really feel it warrants any more details; there is no volume. My hair is the same without it. It still looks on the oily side in person. Also the pink grapefruit scent is so overwhelming. It’s too much for me. However… if you
