November 1st, 2012|5 Comments

A while back I had the opportunity to try out Abbamart’s Beau-Make Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I have to say that my expectations have been exceeded.

Happy Halloween Tutorial

October 31st, 2012|5 Comments

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. […]

FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 Review

October 31st, 2012|16 Comments

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. […]
