Thrive Causemetics Buildable Blur CC Cream | Review

Thrive Causemetics is a brand I wasn’t familiar with until they reached out to me via Instagram. They were kind enough to send me some of their products. Since then, I have been able to try so many of what they have to offer and learn so much about the brand. Today, I am excited to share with you my newest love, their Buildable Blur CC Cream. It has really…

Marc Beauty Tan-tastic Bronzer | Review

If you follow makeup accounts on Instagram, you would have seen Marc Jacobs’ most recent summer collection featured in every post. The beautiful white packaging with the rose gold detailing. Some had been waiting for the Tan-tastic bronzer to be available again for a whole year. It sold out so quickly, but now, the Marc Beauty Tan-tastic Bronzer is here to stay! Yes. IT HAS BEEN MADE PERMANENT! If you’ve…

RealHer Empowering Makeup Review | PR

**I received these products complimentary from RealHer, but all opinions are my own.  A couple of months ago, I received a very exciting package from a brand I hadn’t tried before. I will be honest and say that I don’t try “non-mainstream” brands very often. My makeup shopping is limited to Sephora, Ulta, Walmart, and Target, so unless the brand is available at any of these stores, I’ve probably never…

Soy Face Cleanser | Fresh Beauty Review

For the longest time, I have wanted to try a different type of cleanser. My preferred makeup removal method is micellar water and a cotton pad, but it produces so much waste. I go through so many cotton pads, I wanted to give something new a try. If you haven’t heard of Fresh Beauty, then you should Google them. Their Soy Face Cleanser is extremely popular among social media influencers…

Perfect Toiletry Bag for The Girl On-The-Go

Toiletry-bag-era81

**This post is in partnership with ERA81, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I received the toiletry bag complimentary from ERA81. Where I put on makeup and where I keep my makeup are not one and the same. At least once a year, I also travel to Colombia for a couple of weeks. Figuring out the best place to carry my makeup has always been a struggle. I…

Doing Research on YouTube Beauty Creators

As some of you may know, I am currently a graduate student at the University of Oregon. One of the things I love to do, besides doing my makeup, is doing research. Right now, I am looking at the relationships we, as audience, build with our favorite YouTubers. I would really appreciate it if you could take 5-10 minutes to complete a quick survey for a paper I am working…

Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder | Review

hourglass veil setting powder

If you’re anything like me, you have struggled with finding the right setting powder for you. I hate the way powder looks on my skin, or I guess, I hate my skin looking powdery. I’ve tried THE most popular setting powder, the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder and it just sits on top of my skin. For the last couple of months, I have limited my use of powder as…

MatteLast Lips Review | Pixi Beauty

Up to this point, I hadn’t tried much of Pixi’s makeup. The only other makeup product I had tried was the Endless Silky Eye Pen. This eyeliner is perfect for the waterline, it is so soft and pigmented. The next product I received in a PR package, but I have loved and used these so much! If you haven’t tried some of Pixi’s recent releases, I definitely recommend you do.…
