• New and Improved Too Faced Foundation

    NEW and IMPROVED Too Faced Born This Way Matte Foundation $46. Too Faced has updated their long-wear matte foundation formula and packaging. This foundation offers a buildable, medium to full coverage, a soft matte finish and is available in 30 shades. Smooths skin’s appearance and help control your oil without being drying. It claims to be waterproof, sweat proof and humidity resistant. I feel that this release is more similar to their discontinued Peach Perfect Soft Matte foundation than their previous Born This Way Matte foundation. I absolutely love the Peach Perfect line and I know so many people who were saddened by them discontinuing it. A soft matte foundation…

  • Most Recommended Fantasy Romance Books (that aren’t SJM)

    Because I am participating in the Summer of Romantasy, I have fallen deep into the YouTube archives, devouring all the fantasy romance content that I can find. I have started a spreadsheet to track how many times each book has been recommended, and these are the Top 5 recommendations. I have not read all of these myself yet, but they are my priority this summer. Number 5: Heavenly Bodies by Imani Erriu Tropes: Reluctant allies, Fated mates, Enemies to lovers, Celestial “I defy the stars.” In a world where no entities exist but the Stars, cruel and merciless gods that watch over the world, Elara has been cursed by fate.…

  • Huda Beauty Blush Filter Liquid Blush

    Huda Beauty Blush Filter Liquid Blush $21 will be available June 7th. Huda is calling this the ultimate liquid blush, and her reel completely sold me on this product. It is described as being lightweight, yet buildable.  Contains finely-milled pearls for the most stunning glow, yet dries down and doesn’t budge. I’m definitely intrigued by that! I hate when a liquid blush remains tacky to provide the glow I want. This blush can be worn solo or applied over makeup… even after powder. It will also smell amazing! Will be available in 5 shades. I have my eye on Strawberry Cream I think. Will you be picking one of these…

The formula is lightweight and blendable; it won’t disturb makeup, and is made with skin-loving ingredients such as vitamin E and squalane. We all know the Too Faced Chocolate series smells amazing.

I am surprised that Too Faced seems to have come out with this type of product so late compared to other brands considering they’re most known for their bronzer series. What are…
