Outside My Beauty Bubble (2)

In the previous entry, I dabbled a bit about coming across counterfeit makeup. I've seen Internet talk about their existence and even saw news reports about them, but to see them in person is a bit of a rarity. You see, in NYC, counterfeits of major makeup brands is rare to see - there's just …

Outside My Beauty Bubble (1)

Hello, blogosphere! No, I haven't kicked the bucket - it is 5:04 AM as I type this sentence, and I'm just going to provide a quick TL;DR version as to why I have pretty much fallen off the face of the blogosphere. 1. Quit my job as a Pharm Tech almost a month ago. Only …

FoD: The MLM Adventures (Part 2)

From Part 1: I’m all for the “work grind” mantra – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson lives and breathes it and so does Daymond John, “The Peoples Shark.” Sure, I may not seemingly practice that because I update the blog once in a while (switching jobs is not as easy as it looks – a lesson …

Hey, Beautiful Blossoms! Yesterday I had the pleasure of reading an interesting (and occasionally funny) blog called "The Not Quite Fairy-Tales of Elle Beau," courtesy of a makeup Discord group I participate in.

Currently Obsessed: e.l.f. and Laura Mercier (Part 1)

And one that I'm now certain that I will chuck out: NYX Lip Lingerie (because they made a Lingerie line for lids and I made the mistake of using it as a liquid lip). Welp, Beautiful Blossoms, I did say in an earlier post today that I was going to blog after work! Sure, it …

A Breather Entry

Hey Beautiful Blossoms! After being on hiatus for over a month, I finally got the chance to come back and just do a quick entry - I hadn't realized that the last entry that I wrote was on March 7, but that's what happens when moving plans fall apart get delayed, family members have a …

First Impressions: L’Oreal Truematch Lumi Cushion

Hey Beautiful Blossoms! I gave my self-purchased L'Oreal Truematch Lumi Cushion in N4 (Buff Beige) a run today because I've been itching for a more convenient way to put on face makeup on the go without having to bust out a foundation brush and take a painstaking 10 minutes (this is the fastest I can …

Active on Insta. Blogging… Not So Much.

Intagramming is hella easy. You just gather the stuff you like, snap a pic with a phone or tablet or an iPod, and voila: easy peasy lemon squeasy result. My Insta feed has featured a shit ton of haul pics. It's no secret that I'm a makeup addict (and I don't say that with pride, …
