WWR: Mally Beauty Nude Attitude

The first time I became aware of Mally Beauty was when my cousin and I visited Ulta and we happen to wander by the shelf space that the brand occupied. My cousin told me that her maternal aunt used their products via QVC and that it worked well for her. At that point, I felt …

The IMATS 2018 Deets

That I forgot to dish on. This one got put on a backburner in the midst of quitting my Pharmacy Technician job, flying back to my birth country, and finding work again as soon as I flew back (I actually was unemployed when I flew out), and my grandpa's health scare. To quote Morton Salt: …

Makeup I Thought I’d Love Forever # 1

But time proved me wrong and removed those rose-colored glasses. This first of many entries in this series (I really need to keep track of how many of these I've created) features two makeup products that weren't as great as I thought they were.

What Went Wrong: UD’s Naked Palette

In today's WWW, I'd like to blog about the palette that kicked off the never-ending craze for warm (arguably) neutrals: Urban Decay's Naked palette. Commonly referred to as Naked 1 - even though it was never released as such - this was hailed as an all-time favorite by beautytubers... that is, until the next free …

Outside My Beauty Bubble (Part 3)

In the last entry, I mentioned a brand that I had no access to in the US: BYS Cosmetics. The brand hails from Australia and is mainly available to Southeast Asia, Australia (obviously), parts of Europe and the Middle East, Southern Africa, and in Colombia and (soon) Chile in South America. At this time, there …
