So Mother's Day is right around the corner. This post is going to be a little different. I grew up not only celebrating my mother on Mother's Day but my grandmother as well. Same for Father's Day. My church would celebrate all mothers in the church from the youngest to the oldest. I celebrate both of my sister-in-laws they've gave me beautiful nephews and a niece. I celebrate my mother-in-law for raising the man I love and I celebrate his grandmother as well. Now that I'm older, I have many friends who have children now and I thought about them a lot when making this post because I've never seen anyone sacrifice more than a mother does for her kids. I look on my friends kids as my nieces and nephews as well. I'm their Auntie Erin. So this Mother's Day I'm celebrating all the moms in my life and giving you some ideas that would hopefully please any mother whether it's your own, or your friend, your sister, grandmother and so on.
Ok the Sephora Spring Sale Event is upon us. This year it's a little different. In the years past Rouge has gotten 15% off along with VIB and Beauty Insiders have gotten 10%. This year Rouge gets 20% off and it started the 26th and goes to May 6th. VIB get's 15% off and Beauty Insiders get 10% off starting May 2nd -6th. Unlike the Friends and Family sale in the fall this one is a one time use code only, I think, that's what it's been in the past. During the Friends and Family sale you can use the code numerous times within the time frame.
Man, so far it's been the year of foundations and base products for me. Which oddly enough is what I wanted 2018 to be. 2018 didn't deliver for me, but 2019 really is. So with that being said today we're talking about Veil Cosmetics Sunset Skin Foundation and Complexion Fix Concealer/Corrector/Highlighter. They sent this to me. I didn't have to do a blog post but it's by far the most tested product I've had in a while. I've used this every way possible for weeks and weeks and I wanted to talk about it. Let's go.
It's time for the April Allure Beauty Box which is in collaboration with Carli Bybel. This is a really good box this month, spoiler. As always, Allure sends me these boxes. I don't have to post about them but I want to that way it may help you see what is in them each month and decide if you would enjoy it. There's a tab under "Categories" on this blog, for the Allure Boxes specifically that has the other months in it. The links in this blog post will be affiliate links. You don't have to use them of course.
Alright, I took a little break from the blog posts to really focus on organizing and thoroughly testing new products. I did that so I could give you as much info as possible and not just a first impression but a true, put to the test, overview/review. Today we're discussing The Organic Skin Co. This is a brand that I had tried their skincare and some of there makeup several months ago and then they sent more makeup related products to do a full face pretty much. It's a really cool brand they're certified vegan, cruelty free and Bio Gro. Keep reading for more info.
I've been working on this post for a while. It's an updated round up of some of my favorite brushes. I did this a very long time ago and it was very specific brushes. Now, it's more of brands that I totally trust and have loved every brush I've tried from them. So it really is more of a recommendation on what to take a look at if you're needing a new blending brush or whatever. As always, I'm writing this at like 2 am which seems to be my best time for pumping out blog posts. I don't know man....
Guys we're back with another Drunk Elephant post. Holy crap they came out and dropped a BALM CLEANSER! I mean.....this is the only thing I felt like their collection needed. They freaking done it and kicked the door down while at it. So, I'm going to give you the claims and my first impressions.
I know I don't speak to often about apparel but as you know from my gift guides and such, I love socks....they're my guilty pleasure. I can never have enough. My Society Socks actually reached out and asked if I'd like to try some of their socks and talk about their sock subscription and cause behind it. Obviously, I was stoked. So let's get straight to it. None of the links are affiliate links they're just to make this easier for you guys.
Alright guys, I've been working on collecting as much knowledge as possible for different categories and steps in your skincare that I can. My goal for this blog has always been to have as much information as I can get hold of and as many options for products that I can find that I have tried. So this post is going to be dedicated to "essence", "tonics", or "liquid hydrating toners". Many of us are used to the word toner being a slightly more harsh step and an essence is more of a soothing and gentle step. So I'm going to give you my favorites and break down to the best of my ability, the difference in the terminology.
Greetings guys. Today we're talking about the VDL Perfect Lasting Foundation that I've been trying for a few weeks now.
Let's get straight to it.
I'm from Tennessee. I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
