TRE: Finger-Lickin’ Good (Literally)

Heylo, BBs and happy Sunday! I hope you all had a good day celebrating the commercial Mother's Day with your moms or mom-figures, whether that be in person or paying their grave a visit. And no, I didn't forget today's entry: I had spent nearly every day looking for a video editing program for my …

TRE: $17,000 Makeup Splurge

Or how my latest bout of depression has left me emotionally crippled for hours on end to the point where I'm convinced there is no end in sight. Hullo, BBs. Yes, I'm aware that today is Monday. I do apologize for the fact that I just can't be on schedule with my posts. Aside from …

The Raised Eyebrow: Celebrity Makeup Products

What's up, BBs? I hope you had / have a lovely Sunday / Monday wherever you are, as it is almost 9 PM here in NYC. As promised, I'm delivering one of today's Double-Post entries. Today's more of a mini-rant / headscratch given the title. You see, Rihanna made news in the beauty community with …

TRE: Coastal Makeup Conventions

Heylo, BBs! If you're a New Yorker, are obsessed with any makeup event, both, or none of the above, the International Makeup Artist Trade Show (IMATS) took place this weekend and I ended up going to the Sunday portion of the 3-day event (I thought I initially bought the Saturday ticket). Despite the event being …

TRE: Kardashian Beauty Lawsuit

Hullo, Beautiful Blossoms. I wish I could start this entry with the jovial enthusiasm that I've always had when writing The Raised Eyebrow - but these words would never deliver the weight that I feel on my shoulders or the cloud that looms over my head whenever I undergo a bout of depression. If you …

The Raised Eyebrow: Sue Me!

Hello again, Beautiful Blossoms! I know I'm a day behind with this post but I wasn't expecting to come home late last night from a trip with my cousin (time flies by really fast when you're not on your smartphone) to our local mall. On top of that, I was hoping I'd find something that …

TRE: High-End Not Always Better

Hi, Beautiful Blossoms! Yes, I do realize that TRE was due yesterday but unfortunately I couldn't make the deadline because I had to go out of NYC for most of the day to take care of business - I'm not a big fan of mobile blogging because the Internet signal isn't always as stable as …

TRE: Sephora Revamping Its Rewards System

This week's TRE was brought to you by Reddit's r/makeupaddiction. It's kind of old news but it's something that did have me raising an eyebrow, considering I ranted about it close to 2 weeks ago, I believe. Since the title above made rounds in r/makeupaddiction, there hasn't been any confirmation by Sephora's corporate reps (link …

TRE: Caitlyn Jenner for MAC

Happy Sunday, Beautiful Blossoms! Welcome to another week of The Raised Eyebrow. Now, compared to my other series, Beauty Advice For Thought, TRE may seem like it's the place to talk about the bad side of the cosmetic scene - a raised eyebrow is rarely done as a positive reaction. But in this case, the …

TRE: Sephora’s VIB Rouge Program

Happy Sunday, Beautiful Blossoms! This week's TRE is more of a rant than a raised eyebrow - a rant that has been brought up time and time again but clearly ignored by the recipient. Why would they? The complaints haven't stopped people from going to their stores and buying makeup. Any time I step into …
