• Pumpkin & Poppy My Precious

Happy Halloween Tutorial

Happy Halloween everyone who is celebrating! I did a fun tutorial today with mostly cream products from Pumpkin & Poppy. While I did experience a bit of creasing/wear, it still looked pretty good after 8 hours of wear. I didn’t have any bare or bald spots, which has often been a problem with cream products. I got to use some of the gorgeous shades from The One Ring collection. […]

An Evening with James Vincent & Orlando Santiago

Monday night I had the opportunity to meet up with James Vincent and Orlando Santiago for dinner and hanging out at Cafe Tu Tu Tango in Orlando, along with several of my Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida sisters. It was so great to learn more about the history of the Makeup Show and its wonderful community. It made me more excited to go (I can’t believe that was possible!) to the event this weekend. Orlando & James If you want to go to the event, and you are NOT a blogger or an industry member, you can still sign up and buy tickets to go if you select ‘Other’ under credentials and list my blog, Phyrra, as your credentials. This is a unique opportunity for those in the the central Florida area. […]

  • Green Sugarpill Eyeshadow Tutorial for Hooded Eyes

Sugarpill Fall Junebug

I finally picked up Sugarpill Junebug! It’s a green shade and I don’t know why I waited so long to purchase it. It’s lovely! I combined it with Inglot AMC 53, which is sort of a brown plum type shade. I’m also trying out a new blush today. […]

FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 Review

Today I want to talk about FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5. For a long time I avoided retinol products because I thought my sensitive skin couldn’t handle them. Eventually I dipped my toe in with one and loved it. A few months ago I had the opportunity to try out FutureDerm’s new product. What makes it special is that it is designed to release retinol over an 8 hour period of time in your skin. […]

Darker Hair with Manic Panic

It must just be the time of year. Since I got my hair cut last Wednesday, I decided to darken my hair a bit more. Sunday I finally found the time to dye my hair again. I used about 1/3 to 1/2 a jar of Manic Panic Black & Blue mixed with about 2/3 a [...]

Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream Review and Swatches

So today I’ve got the Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream for you to check out. I’ve used this BB Cream on and off for a few months now because I couldn’t decide if I liked it or I hated it. It actually varies radically by what daytime moisturizer with SPF I use. I don’t like it with LaVanila the Healthy Face SPF 40. I really like it with Supergoop SPF 50. […]
