Walmart Beauty Box : Spring 2016

Here’s another Walmart Beauty Box! They’re “free” ($5 shipping per quarter) and they now let you choose from one of two beauty profiles. They automatically chose “trendsetter” for me, since I was at the time under 30. The millennials, they love trends! I’ve gone on and on about why I love this box, but it really…

Ipsy: February 2013

Tracking: I got my tracking number today (2/11), but it had apparently arrived Saturday (2/9).  Uh. Bag: I opened the shipper and was greeted with the delicious smell of plastic.  I love that smell, but i don’t love that smell on a makeup bag.  Eew.  It’s a shiny black patent.  That always looks so cheap…

MyGlam/Ipsy September 2012 Review

So let’s start here. I got by bag on September 22nd. That’s NOT mid-month. It shipped on the 17th. That’s closer to mid-month, but still wrong. While I will grant that I’ve been having zero love for the postal service lately (the second package was misdelivered out of Cincinatti, I guess.) The bags were shipped…

MyGlam: August 2012

Another month, another Glam Bag.  The August theme was Endless Summer, which the GlamTeam took to mean “don’t ever look old”.  Fair enough, MyGlam. The bag was neon orange mesh with a neon pink zipper.  I was raised to react with horror to that color combination.  But it’s a nice little bag.  I’m starting to…

Sinful Colors Review

Note: at the time of post, it’s been about 2 days since I originally reached out to Sinful Color’s parent company, Revlon, for a customer service complaint (Sinful Colors currently doesn’t have a customer service department at all.)  I’ve received no response. A while back, I purchased three bottles of Sinful Colors polish in a…

The Blue Eyeshadow Question

For most people, blue eyeshadow is an instant “HELLLLLL NO”.  It conjures up too many images of hairbands or hookers in the days of disco.  It’s been done too wrong for too long for most people to even apply it casually. Well, I argue that blue eyeshadow isn’t an instant beauty sin, but I do…

MyGlam July 2012 Extended Cut

Let’s revisit that MyGlam post, shall we? I hadn’t gotten to try out a couple products when I reviewed, so Imma tackle them now. First, the conditioner.  I mentioned that it smelled nice.  When I got it out in the shower, I have to say, “nice smell” went to “OH MY GOD I LOVE.”  It’s…

Myglam Bag Review: July 2012

This month’s bag was themed for beach beauty.  It had a couple items that everyone got, then some this or that options.  I think that’s actually sort of fun because even when I totally ruin the surprise of what’s in the bag, I still get something of a surprise.  I love a good spoiler, but…

Beauty Review

A quick rundown of some things I’ve used lately (for all both of you who care.) Wet n Wild Fast Dry Nail Color in Ebony Hates Chris $1 ish – First, let me address the name of this color.  I’m guessing it’s a reference to the show, Everybody Hates Chris?  And it’s black.  This is…

MyGlam: June

My June MyGlam bag came on the 12th.  Last month’s arrived on the 16th, so I was much more pleased with the delivery of this one. As soon as I opened the bag, I caught a whiff of something fishy.  Another well-crafted MyGlam good, clearly.  It was the bag.  I assume the glue holding on…

A Review of MyGlam Bags from a Normal Girl

Where I’m Coming From: I keep seeing reviews of the MyGlam bags from Youtube Gurus and makeup hoarders who are upset with the quality of the MyGlam bag content because they already have dozens of each product. I really feel like the point of the MyGlam bag is to introduce makeup novices to new products….
