A Good, Old Cult Beauty Haul

Very few things in my book that beats a good, old beauty haul. The excitement of trying out new beauty products is up there with finishing up one. The other day, I saw this on someone’s instagram feed: “my hobbies include buying makeup and also thinking about the next time I will be able to buy makeup”. Well, if we change “makeup” to include all beauty products (I mean, hair, body, face, literally, covering head to toe), that will be a pretty darn good summary…

Glossier Generation G Lipstick Swatches & Updated Review

A few months back, when I did a roundup review of Glossier makeup products, I mentioned I have mixed feelings about the Generation G lipsticks.

Sisley So Intense Eyeliner Review

I’ve finished up the Guerlain liquid eyeliner, which I have done a full review awhile back here. All my thoughts are still the same, in case you are wondering: great formula, but not the easiest one to use. As a reward to myself (you know what I mean, finishing up a makeup item is quite an achievement), I picked up the Sisley So Intense Eyeliner, which I have heard some good reviews about in the beauty community. And..let me just say, after a month of…
