So here I go getting a little bit more specific. So what makeup items do I think are worth the spend? … Continue reading Where to Splurge (and save): Makeup

The most frustrating thing for me, though, is when I repurchase a favorite or try to stay loyal to a … Continue reading Consistent Luxury Makeup Brands
All right, here we go. This is a big one. My entire lipstick collection on display for the world to see.
