Hourglass Caution Mascara

Friday, February 15, 2019


I love mascara. Love it. It’s my favorite part of my makeup routine just like cleansing is in my skincare routine. I always have 5 or 6 on rotation and once one dries out, in pops another. They all serve a purpose within my repurposed Diptyque candle holder (like the blogger I truly am). One of my friends and I love to dish about our latest mascara loves and stories of when we’ve regrettably poked ourselves in the eye with the wand (RT if this is you). We both decided that we’re super high maintenance when it comes to mascara, hence why I can never give a straightforward answer when I’m asked what my favorite mascara is. Depends on the day really!

The one where Fenty setting powder saves lives and Lancome makes highlighters out of fairy dust.

Drunk Elephant

Welcome to another post that I’ve rewritten multiple times because I couldn’t settle on how I wanted it to sound. When writing about a brand that has a controversial way of marketing with amazing products, can you blame me? Thanks to Caroline Hirons, I found some clarity on how to share my constant tennis match of feelings on Drunk Elephant. Caroline’s great for telling it like it is, love her for that, and giving you the honest truth. Let’s tuck in and see how I do.

Glossier Lashslick

Sunday, January 6, 2019

Ah I really could have a thread of mascara posts every week because I always have 5 or 6 on rotation. But mascara is one of my favorite makeup products and has been forever. Rarely do I go with just one when I have the options to layer and build up my lashes for maximum drama and avoiding false lashes all together. I don’t trust myself to put those things on myself. All of my mascaras vary with what they do and one of the most natural in my assortment is from Glossier. I didn’t know if Lashslick was for me when it came out but eventually I caved and figured I could layer it if need be. But now that I’ve been through my first one and a second one waiting, I feel confident enough to say that I love this mascara.

The Other Autocorrect

Friday, December 28, 2018


Wow another post about Sunday Riley! Here we are not surprised in the slightest! However, I wanted to spill the metaphorical tea about her one and only eye cream with amazing intentions and typical cheeky and creative name: Autocorrect. Promoted as a brightening and depuffing eye cream, Sunday aimed to target all those pesky eye concerns that plague our delicate eye areas, making us look about ten years older or just down write crepey (if you don’t know what I mean, then you’re too young to be here).
