Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner REVIEW

07 July 2014

This is a review I should probably have had up a while ago, but I'm just now getting some computer access so apologies! This is, obviously (lol) going to be a review on the new gel liner pen from Benefit. One thing to note; while they claim to be the first company to package a gel liner in this format, they're not. This Maybelline one has been out internationally for, as I understand it, before the Benefit one. Not that this really means jack, but I wish companies would do a tiny bit of research before making claims. (Yes, it has been out longer than the Benefit one, I just did a quick Googling and found this review dating from September 2013.)

Anyway, I LOVE liquid eyeliner pens. Love love love. I usually use the Physicians Formula one (review here because it works well enough for me (not the blackest black liner, but what I sacrifice in intensity, I gain in sheer ease of application, availability, and price). I actually took a break from gel liners when I started using liquid ones more, and now I use almost exclusively liquid liner. That being said, I jumped outta my skin when I heard about the Benefit one because HOW COOL? A GEL LINER PEN! Anyway, let's start this! This product retails for $24.

e.l.f. Ariel Treasure Within Beauty Book REVIEW

06 July 2014

One of the times I was questing at Walgreens (for the new Maybelline "The Nudes" palette, which I finally found at Ulta; review soon!) I spotted a display that caught my eye. Now last Halloween (or maybe two Halloweens ago) e.l.f. did a collaboration with Disney and had some gift sets based off of villains. This is a similar concept, except with Ariel!

Truth be told, I'm actually not a HUGE Little Mermaid fan, but the packaging and the concept suckered me in and I ended up with two kits; a lip set (review to be coming) and this "Treasure Within" Beauty Book. The packaging of this is GORGEOUS, can we just take a minute? I'm so in love with the aesthetic aspects of this palette. But how do the products inside stack up?

(I'll be including page anchors so if you just want to see swatches or read about just one part, you can skip to that particular part and not have to fuss around, since I can get...really verbose, especially when talking about so many products in one mega-post.)

Hi! Just a talking post/update!

05 July 2014

Okay, so I've been pretty MIA lately and I definitely feel like I need to give an update.

I am deleting a lot of posts! Why? Because, frankly, they suck. Either the photographs were blurry, I wasn't pleased by how I explained things or I came off rude/bitchy, and I've grown (slightly, lol) and I just feel like they aren't super quality.

I will also be attempting (HAHA) to code my own layout; the one I've had is super old and I'm over it. I want a bit more of a minimalistic look at this point.

I DO have a ton of reviews coming up, that are, hopefully, much better than my previous content. I'm also hoping that by removing a lot of my posts, I will be more inclined to replenish them and post more! :)

Thanks for sticking around!
