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 …

The BBA Makeup Workhorses

Hey, Beautiful Blossoms! I'm glad to be able to sneak in a blog entry today - between working my regular and overtime hours, shuffling between the old apartment and the new house, and trying to get my licensing exam in order, it's nice to be able to talk about something that's completely unrelated to all …

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, …

IMATS NYC 2017

What's up, Beautiful Blossoms? I hope you're all alive and reasonably well in spite of all the craziness that's happening all over the planet. But I'm not gonna make this into a political rant (because there's just an oversaturation oozing from pretty much every major media outlet in existence) because even I'm tired of it. …

Happy New Year!

Here's to the first post of 2017. And this is what I'm hoping to accomplish on the blog site and the YouTube Channel: POST MOAR. I had to stop the weekly posting schedules (Currently Obsessed, The Raised Eyebrow, etc.) because I haven't been consistently putting makeup and skincare tests on the regular in a way …

Day 2 of 30: Decisions, Decisions…

While I'm waiting for the Urban Decay Primer Potion to dry a bit, I managed to find my Vice 4. And I learned that I am rather shitty when it comes to keeping my palette brushes clean: I haven't washed the double ended brush that came in the Vice 4. But that's minor compared to …

What Went Wrong: WnW Reserve Your Cabana

What's up, Beautiful Blossoms? My chronic depression did not win today so here I am with a blog entry! And it's been a while since I posted a product disappointment to me, so I figured I'd post one - and it's about a hyped product to boot! And yep, another new series: What Went Wrong. …

Arm Swatches: Good for Pigmentation.

That's it. That's all they're good for. They're not an accurate representation of what the product is going to look like on its designated body part. So when people do those arm swatches of lip products? Yeah, they look nice and swanky, but you won't really know if they'll end up in every crack or …

Hobbies are Expensive.

And makeup is no exception. Right now, makeup is a hobby to me. And holy shit, it's burned quite a hole in my finances. But it's not something I regret at all - I'd do it all again if I could. Except I'd probably skip the contouring shit because my contouring products are barely touched, …
