The Ugly Truth of Dramageddon 2020

If you're in the beauty community or YouTube scene, at some point you must have heard a sliver of the ongoing meltdown involing Tati Westbrook, Shane Dawson, Jeffree Star, and James Charles, colloquially known as Dramageddon. Because of the fact that there has been more than one instance of Dramageddon, I've added the year to …

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 …

BBA Spotlight: BH Cosmetics Quick Change – Brush Cleaner

a.k.a. why you shouldn't even spend $20 on the original Vera Mona or try to be cheap with a DIY version with an H&M Hair Donut and a tin can. Today's blog post sheds light on what has essentially become a very handy staple in my personal eyeshadow application: the BH Cosmetics Quick Change - …

Currently Obsessed: e.l.f. and Laura Mercier (Part 2)

It wasn't long before I ended up at my favorite (wouldn't say local, since there are e.l.f. stores that are much closer to me than the one I like) e.l.f. store - my Planet Fitness was literally less than a 5 minute drive from it. Keeping the e.l.f. lipstick in mind, I made sure to …

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 …

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 …

Me and Instagram Cateyes.

Or, to be fair, it's more drag makeup cateyes than Instagram cateyes. Anyway, I finally convinced myself to practice cateye makeup after telling myself (and buying a couple of e.l.f. eyeliners for practice) that I need to do it to get better with the cateye. Because I have shitty hand-eye coordination and, if you noticed …

Cubicle Makeup.

Or the frustration of wearing eyeshadows with them not being noticed.  At one point or another, you've heard about it or noticed that every brand's got that one palette with safe colors.  Cubicle makeup. Sometimes called "professional setting makeup, "office makeup," "work-safe," or something along that line. There's always a new term used to describe the …
