Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey | Review

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator Gilded Honey2

Ever since its launch, the Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator has been one of the highlighters I put down on my wishlist. I’ve been reading a lot of positive reviews about it for years now. And last year, I was finally able to get my hands on it but it wasn’t until recently that I started to play around with it. Continue reading


Product Empties for February 2018

2018 February Product Empties

Since I don’t have new products I opened last month, I may as well post items I have emptied or finished up. That way, I can feel good about making progress on my low buy plan and my intention to finish up a lot of products in my stash this year. I don’t really have a lot of empties to show you but let’s get to them.

MAC Lightful C SPF 50 Quick Finish Cushion Compact | Review

MAC Lightful C SPF 50 Quick Finish Cushion Compact3

My friend once said that the best compact powder she has ever had was the Lightful Powder Foundation. Even if one compact costs a lot, I remember her telling me she’d buy it again.

The Balm Cosmetics Highlite ‘N Con Tour Palette | Review

The Balm Cosmetics Highlite 'N Con Tour Palette

I’ve been meaning to put down my thoughts regarding the contour and highlight palette from The Balm Cosmetics for a long time now and I keep on putting it off. I first bought this last year when I found myself without my makeup kit for a whole week. Truthfully, I had only used this a couple of times since I’ve put it in rotation and now it’s time for that review. Continue reading
