Christmas 2015 Makeup Look

A few weeks ago, I was enticed by the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Holiday Eye Shadow Palette. Perusing Macy’s for Christmas gifts, I figured it would be OK to treat myself, especially since it was extremely affordable. The Anastasia eye shadows on their own are $12, so 14 of them for under $40 is quite a bargain. The shadows are great quality, they are extremely blendable and you have an amazing choice to create lots of looks. They are mostly shimmers with very few matte colors, so you have have to reach into your personal collection to create a more defined shape.

Review: Beauty Box Subscriptions

017

A few years back I started my expedition into finding the best Beauty Box prescription to fit my needs. There are a lot to choose from and between September 2015 and now, I have so far tried three (maybe I’ll try more). My demands aren’t high but I love the opportunity to try before I buy.

Review: Translucent Powders

016Translucent Powders have been on the rise lately. With the new trend of baking (thank you Drag Queen culture), having a good translucent powder in your collection is a must. It is ideal for setting make-up, especially if you tend to use more cream based products or have oily skin (like me!). Here are a few drugstore translucent powder that I’ve tried over the years:

I love discovering new products. One of the best things about drugstore brand cosmetics is how often new products are released. One of the latest from Revlon is the Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors. It was difficult to find and it took a while until it was available. I was finally able to get my hands on HD Seduction (dusty rose) and HD Devotion (darker nude). When I realized how much I liked them, I went out and bought HD Passion and HD Addiction

Tips & Tricks: The Color Theory and Making it Work for your Eyes

002

15-year-old Me stands in front of a mirror inspecting the day’s outfit. It is my favorite, a red cotton collared shirt with sleeves that go past the wrist and a pair of true blue jeans. Which eye shadow should I match with this look? I wonder. Blue or red? Well, red’s too loud for school, so I’ll just go with blue.

Review: MAC Prep + Prime Fix +

001

This product is a category 3. For a full description of beauty product categories, please visit the My Beauty Philosophy page.

I purchased MAC’s Prep + Prime Fix + after seeing it used repeatedly in YouTube tutorials. I was curious about its use of adding vibrance to eye shadows but mostly I just wanted to figure out what its purpose was. Is it a makeup setting spray? Is it a primer? Is it for eye shadows? The answer is yes to all three. You would think that’s where it went wrong as usually when a product tries to be too versatile, it fails at everything it promises on. That was until I looked at the ingredients…
