Crown Brush Ultra Skinny Eye Marker Review + Swatch

Tuesday, August 23, 2016
Press Sample

Fun fact about me: I NEVER use liquid liner. I have upturned eyes that happen to have a pretty severe downturned hood, so the idea of winged liner is quite a laughable notion. I received this Crown Brush Ultra Skinny Eye Marker as part of my Blogger bag for The Makeup Show LA, and I've been putting off reviewing it because it honestly does not fit into my makeup routine at all because of my aforementioned predicament. I was also pretty iffy because I know Crown Brush as a decent, but cheap brush company. I've tried another one of their makeup products, which I used in my Rainbow Concealer tutorial, and it was pretty "ok" and I didn't know what to expect with this $7 liquid liner.

Glossier Soothing Face Mist Review

It's no secret that I'm absolutely in love with Glossier's Milky Jelly Cleanser. Since that product worked so well for me, I decided to foray into more skincare items from them. Glossier recently had a promotion where you got their Soothing Face Mist at their Coconut Balm Dotcom for $5 with free shipping, so I decided the time was NOW... er, THEN! It's been many moons since I've had a facial spray in my daily routine.

Damn, Glossier! Back at it again with the great deals! A few weeks ago they had another deal running that I naturally partook in, but since I already own enough of this kit I'm gonna have to pass it up. However, this looks like a bomb set for a little R&R after starting back at school, or after a long workday after an eventful weekend.

Sephora and Ulta Birthday Gifts | a.k.a Happy Birthday to Me!

Sunday, August 14, 2016

Today is my birthday! If I was a normal person I would be enthused, but having a birthday in one of the hottest months of the year and also experiencing nearly 2 decades of my friends not being able to make it to my parties because everyone is out vacationing has put a bit of a sour spin on turning a year older for me. At least I have freebies from two of my favorite stores to console me being a year older and away from 99% of my friends and family.

Last Week in Review (August 7 - August 13)

In contrast to last last week, I actually got a lot done! Yaaaay! I feel really happy with my production rate last week and I'm aiming to keep it that way for the next year. Yep, today is my birthday. Another year older, another layer of age-related anxiety and regret... like being kicked out of the family health insurance plan in a few years. Can't we go back to when birthdays were fun and you got to invite all your friends over for cake and ice cream? I'm really not digging this whole "another nail in the coffin" birthday schtick that comes with adulthood. Anyways, I'm sure you're not here to hear me kvetch about how sad I am about being an old fart. On to the makeup!
