It’s a really good chance that I have all of these colors from another brand but yet when something is new I need to try it and I’d prefer to be the first.

In this instance, MAC Cosmetics has no idea that my blog exists so they don’t send me stuff. I know “cry me a river” right! Anyways at $20 a pop, I only decided to try one of the new Retro Matte Lipsticks from MAC. Because…$20 G!  View Full Post

Makeup has always been the forefront of my beauty routine. I remember being grounded for sneaking my mother’s red lipstick to school and wearing her favorite rouge lippie on picture day (don’t ask me what I was thinking)! But as an adult I’ve been searching for more ways to cut down the time I spend in the bathroom. I share a cozy one bedroom apartment with my boyfriend so you can imagine what are arguments consist of. How long I am in the bathroom! And why he didn’t put the toilet seat down!

Now that I am in my last year of my thirties, I love products that still give me that youthful glow and easily convince people that I am not a day over 25. #LiesTheyTell

You beauties should know by now I am on a never ending journey to find the perfect skin care routine. I know never ending sounds intense but that’s only because I’m a Scorpio and I have serious commitment issues. Add on the fact that I love new things and my issue turns into a massive problem. I use to think that perfect skin just sort of happened, no work is needed. I also believe in fairies and unicorns (please don’t try to tell me otherwise). But in the real world, perfect skin requires good products and daily work.

In my mind perfect skin just sort of happens, no work is needed. I also believe in fairies and unicorns (please don’t try to tell me otherwise). But in the real world, perfect skin requires good products and daily work. It’s something that you start doing before the wrinkles and the puffy bags form and take a cozy spot on your face. Meaning, a good skin care regimen should be in place before you turn 40. But if your mother wasn’t like mine and didn’t drill the importance of taking care of your skin, I’ve got good news for you. There are a few products on the market that can help you along the way and improve your skin regimen even if you are late to the party.
