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.

Heylo, Beautiful Blossoms. I felt well enough to make an entry from this year's flu (very, very contagious) which had me tossing and turning in bed because my joints were achy - something that I've never had happen to me in all my years of having the flu. I also needed to let out some …

Arm Swatches: Good for Pigmentation.

Kiko Single Eyeshadow and NYX Stick Highlighters

Today, I went to Kings Plaza because I couldn't stand being cooped up. I was supposed to have done training for a job that I would have worked, but it fell apart and we no longer fit like a jigsaw puzzle. So what to do on an accidental day off? I wanted to get a …
