Colourpop Elsa Palette Review + Swatches

Colourpop Elsa Palette Review + Swatches

OK, I’ll admit it. I still have seen Frozen 2 yet. I know, I know! It’s just that I meant to watch it, but some of my customers at work said they didn’t like the second one as much, so I decided to put it off to the side. I’m probably going to watch it at some point, but I just haven’t got around it. However, I can still appreciate the cute Elsa palette from Colourpop without having seen the second movie. I’ll be honest again and say that I did not care for this palette at first, but it grew on me enough to want it really badly.

Why I’m Canceling My BoxyCharm Subscription

Why I’m Canceling My BoxyCharm Subscription

Hi, friends! You may have noticed I haven’t posted a lot of BoxyCharm related content lately. I subscribed to a six-month BoxyCharm subscription back in October (my first box was sent out November) as well as the newer premium box in more recent months, but I will be canceling all BoxyCharm subcriptions by the end of my six-month subscription period. There are two main reasons for doing this: one is overconsumerism and the other is the recent scandal that BoxyCharm has been caught up in.

The past premium boxes (the ones I was unable to get because I was still on the waitlist at the time) included some really nice products I would have liked to get my hands on, so I’m really excited to share my first premium box with you all today!

BoxyCharm January 2020 Unboxing

Hello, friends! Welcome to the first official, non-announcement post of the new decade! This month, I’ll be unboxing not only one BoxyCharm box but a total of three BoxyCharm boxes. Why, you ask? Well, on top of my base box, I finally made it off the waitlist for BoxyCharm Premium, which will be unboxed tomorrow! I also bought the December 2019 FOMO box simply because I wanted the free Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette. I have yet to receive that box, but I thought it would be fun to contrast the base, premium, and FOMO boxes. Anyways, that was just a little sneak peek into what’s to come. Let’s unbox!

Changes for the New Year

Changes for the New Year

Hello, my lovely friends! Happy New Year! It’s crazy how we’re already in 2020, the start of a new decade. Have you decided on your resolutions?

I wanted to share some changes to the blog I hope to implement in the new year with you all. For the past few years, my posts have had pretty much the same template and outro. I want to try something new and just write as I feel. I’ve been using the same structure for consistency, but I’m hoping that by getting rid of that, I’ll be able to better connect with you all.

How to Restore Old Makeup Using Tape

How to Restore Old Makeup Using Tape

Hello, friends! It is now day 19 of blogmas, which means we have less than one week before Christmas! How exciting is this? I thought I would kind of switch things up a bit today and do a little tutorial on how to restore your old powder products such as eyeshadows, blushes, highlighters, and other pressed powders. Have you ever had the issue of your pressed powder products oxidizing or developing some sort of hardened barrier layer preventing you from being able to get a lot of product on your brush? This has happened to me so many times, and it can be frustrating to know there is product in the compact or palette but I am unable to use it because of this hardened layer. There is actually a way to save your makeup from this, and it will make all the difference in color payoff.

Colourpop X Disney Frozen II Anna Full Collection + Swatches

Colourpop X Disney Frozen II Anna Full Collection + Swatches

Hi, friends! How have you all been? Can you believe it’s already day sixteen of blogmas? Time is going so slow yet so fast. I’m finally starting to feel like it’s the Christmas season with all the beautiful lights around my neighborhood. I’ve noticed a lot of delivery trucks in my neighborhood, too. Please remember to show patience, care, and love to all the package deliverers, warehouse workers, customer service teams, and retail employees during this holiday season because this probably the most stressful time for those in the retail industry. They are working diligently to get everyone’s holiday orders out and doing their best. Please remember that they are experiencing a much higher volume of orders and that delays are to be expected. I know the team at Colourpop is experiencing a heavy volume of orders at this time and trying to fulfill everyone’s orders from its incredible Black Friday sale. I ordered many products during said sale, and I’m so happy to have finally received both my packages! Here I have the entire Colourpop x Disney Frozen II Anna collection to share with you all!

Finally a Foundation Match? [Sephora Haul]

Finally a Foundation Match? [Sephora Haul]

Hi, friends! I had originally meant to share my experience going to a Sephora in-house event today, but when I went to the event location, there was no event going on. I don’t really know what happened. Did Sephora cancel the event or change the location? Did I get the date wrong? I’m not sure, but there was no event and there weren’t even that many people in the store. I thought it was going to be a really cool event since we had to RSVP, and I was looking forward to sharing my experience with you all. Well, it didn’t happen, but since I was at Sephora anyways, I decided take a stroll through all the wonderful aisles.
