Product Shout-Out: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder

Published in: MAC Makeup, Video

This is only my favorite MAC powder of all time. No big deal, LOL. I’ve worn it for years, have loved it for years, and I’ll hopefully continue to love it as long as they keep making it.

I don’t like it when powders look powdery, and this doesn’t. It’s better for natural-looking skin than opaque full-coverage makeup, so if that’s what you’re into (the natural look), I think you’ll like it.

Wearing MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Tan with Dior Diorskin Nude Air Serum

In other news, is anybody else craving a salad and a green juice this afternoon?? My body is not-so-subtly telling me that I ate too much junk food over the past few days.

I ate more butter last weekend than I had in the previous six months! — and every bite was glorious.

Well, every bite except for the ones of that Trader Joe’s Pecan Pie in a Jar… That ended up being quite disappointing, for the record. WAY too sweet.

Oh, well. Thankfully, there was a backup pie from Costco, which was bomb! 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection Review | Spring 2017 (Video)

Published in: Collections, Makeup, Product Reviews, Too Faced, Video

Packaging for the The Too Faced Sweet Peach Spring 2017 collection (the purse is from a press kit and won’t be for sale)

I haven’t had a peach Gummi in years, but now I kinda want one… The Too Faced Sweet Peach Spring 2017 Collection is practically an ode to peach Gummies (the round ones that look like doughnuts).

I’m wearing the collection in this video. I’m wearing the eye palette on my eyes, the standalone blush on my cheeks, the face palette with the bronzer, highlighter and blush on top of the other blush on my cheeks (there’s a lot happening on my cheeks), and Peach Tease gloss on my lips.

5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately | Holiday Edition

Published in: Just For Fun, Video

How much of your holiday shopping did you do online this year? I gotta be honest…Amazon Prime sure comes in handy sometimes, if you know what I mean. Yup, I still have a few things left to get, but I’m sure everything will work itself out. Even though Christmas always falls on the 25th every year, it’s like it sneaks up on me every time, LOL! Why is that? I’m always doing something at the last minute.

*sigh*

Here are some things I’ve been loving this holiday season. How about you, sweets? What are some things you’ve been all about?

1. Urban Decay Solstice Moondust Eyeshadow
2. HomeGoods holiday home decor
3. Bath & Body Works Spiced Apple Toddy Candle
4. Tom Ford Winter Soleil Lip Foils
5. MAC Shadescent in Creme d’Nude

Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush Palette Review (Video)

Published in: Hourglass, Video

’tis the season for sparkle, tinsel, glitter, right? — so why not turn up your cheek situation two or three notches? Or twelve?

Highlights galore going on with the new Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush Palette, which is very different than the O.G. Ambient Lighting Blush Palette.

I’m wearing two shades from the new palette in this video because I like to mix-it and match-it that way. I mixed Incandescent Electra (the one on the left) with Brilliant Nude (middle shade), popped that on my cheeks and then buffed it within an inch of its life with a kabuki brush because the sparkle was like HEY GIRL HAAAY, and I happened to be in the mood for mellower shimmer.

The new limited edition Strobe Lighting Blush Palette is $62, and it’s available now at Sephora and Hourglass counters.

P.S. Happy Friday to you! I hope you’re feeling good today. 🙂 I feel pretty refreshed. esterday I took some time to continue refilling my well, like, I decorated my tree, hung out with the coywolf and baked this loaf of low-fat zucchini chocolate chip bread (I like to bake in my spare time).

Zucchinis and chocolate chips — when you think about them, they don’t sound like should go together, right? They sound kind of gross…but they’re actually great together when you get ’em in a bread situation!

For the record, the bread does NOT taste like a vegetable. The zucchini just adds some background sweetness.

This didn’t exactly photograph well (LOL!), but it’s delicious.
