holy grail: MAC Fix+

I purchased this product whenever I first got into makeup. It was all the hype at the time and it was the only setting spray around at the time. Now there's millions of other setting sprays and vitamin-infused facial sprays on the market, yet the MAC Fix+ is still the apple of my eye.

You can purchase this anywhere you can find MAC products for $21. Yes, it's extremely pricey for a bottle of water with vitamins inside of it but I have my reasons, I swear! (I must say the price has consistently gone up through the years and I'm afraid the next time I run out it'll have jumped up another dollar!)

Let's take a walk through memory lane shall we?...

NARS Laos Matte Multiple on the Cheeks & Lips

My original plan for this post failed and I can blame UPS for that. I couldn't get my hands on the Vientiane Matte Multiple so I had to order it online. I really wanted to do a full face with both products, but waiting on snail mail makes me feel like a failure of wanting to post regularly... so two separate posts it is!

If you missed it, you can read my review for this product here.

NARS Laos Matte Multiple Review & Swatches

If you've been a long follower of my blog, thank you and it wouldn't surprise you that I would purchase this purely because the shade is "Laos." It holds value to me because Laos is the country  my parents migrated from. I've only been there once in my lifetime but I can say it feels like home!

At first I only saw the promotional details of the collection so I had no clue how accurate the shade descriptions were. So the other day I was wandering around in Sephora looking for a skincare product and ended up finding this guy. I was extremely happy that it really was pretty in real life!

Maybelline Nude Lust ColorSensational Lipstick Swatches & Review

Hello all! I've been lurking back into the makeup world slowly and surely... This is one of tons that I have to share with y'all, as long as there's no ugly overcast in Texas!

One of the looks I first fell in love with when I was younger were smoky grey eyes with nude lips. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a sucker for them but I've expanded my horizons now that I'm older.

So naturally, of course, my heart fluttered when I saw the new Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick Buffs collection. I searched high and low online to see which nude would look good against my skintone and finally decided to pick up Nude Lust!

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Review & Swatches

Howdy all, I hope all is well with anyone who is still reading my lonely ol' blog. I'm doing great, thank you for asking, just four more classes until I complete my undergrad. Whoo hoo!

So onto what this post is really about...

I've been using the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, $28 for a 6oz purchased at Sephora, for about half a year now so I feel it's an appropriate time for a review.

I goofed and forgot to take a photo so we're going to use the photo from the Sephora website, okay?

This cream has many uses. As the jar says, you can use it to "Hydrate dry, parched skin. Relieve minor irritation and itching due to eczema and other conditions. For the face and elsewhere." What I use it for is just an everyday facial moisturizer. I haven't tested out how it fares with eczema yet mainly because mine hasn't acted up in a while.
