It Cosmetics Perfect Lighting Radiant Touch Magic Wand Corrects, Conceals and Brightens

Fueled by drinking coffee at 5 p.m. yesterday, which was not my best move, but I needed a boost before HIIT class, and killer PMS insomnia, I spent way too many hours last night binge-listening to this awesome beauty podcast called Fat Mascara. Very entertaining! It’s my latest fave thing. But that’s not the point of this post. Show More Summary

Inside Voice on the Outside: Story Time

I found out that our local library has half-hour story time for toddlers a couple times a week. I’ve taken Connor Claire twice, and she really enjoys it. I was watching her today and — surprise! — I got totally emo. ???? She was exactly...Show More Summary

Tarte Lid Lock Clay Base 12-Hour Eye Foundation

I think I’ve watched too many Lifetime movies about women who are kidnapped and forced to live in terrifyingly small spaces, because I would really like to learn how to pick locks and crack safes. Something about those skills is very appealing to me. That reminds me: locks. Show More Summary

Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes in Spice

I’ve been trying to get myself out there more in the beauty biz lately, going to more work lunches and work coffees, partly to get out of the house/baby jail, and when I do venture out, Connor usually chills with my mom, but also toShow More Summary

MEOWZA! Tarte Sex Kitten Liquid Eyeliner

Let’s step into the cat lady confessional for a moment, shall we? Because I have a couple things to get off my chest…which is currently covered in tabby fur. First: sometimes I think about kidnapping my neighbor’s cat Harris, and I may...Show More Summary

Some Thoughts on Pimples and Perfectionism…and a Review of the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Treatment Concealer and Powder

I have a pimple. BAM! — right there on my chin. I’ve named him Julian (hi, Julian!). Julian really hurts and feels like he has roots that dig miles and miles into my skin. He probably came about due to a combination of factors — eating...Show More Summary

Say Hi to the Benefit Foolproof Brow Powder Kits

I have this theory that everyone at some point in time goes through a big ol’ bold brow phase, where all you want in life is OTT BROWS BROWS BROWS for days. Mine happened circa 2014-2015, and when they happen, you gotta get them out of your system, like dating bad boys or wanting a pony or getting food poisoning. Show More Summary

The Weird and the Wonderful

I love that wherever we are in the world, be it a hilly hamlet in the ‘burbs (hello, Novato!) or a bustling metropolis like London, we can, at any given time, find things that are weird and wonderful. For example, I walked into Safeway...Show More Summary

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 491

So…what is the Monday Poll? Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past 10 (!) years. (It’s like...Show More Summary

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 465

When Tabs gets dreamy-eyed and gazes off toward a tree filled with fluttering finches, or he closes his eyes and tastes the breeze with his tongue (he looks especially dreamy when he does this), I wonder what he’s thinking about. Does...Show More Summary

Saturday Surfing: September 2nd, 2017

Hi, beautiful! I can’t stop smiling because it’s a three-day weekend. ???? Monday is Labor Day here in the U.S., and I’m so excited about having an extra day to chill (even though we’re in the midst of a heatwave). I hope you have a nice,...Show More Summary

Is Lancôme Bi Facil Face Makeup Remover a Lazy Girl’s Dream Come True?

It’s micellar, micellar, everywhere! Yeah, here’s another micellar makeup remover, this one from Lancôme. We JUST talked about micellar magic a few days ago in that post about the MAC Gently Off Wipes + Micellar Water Wipes, which… Ah!...Show More Summary

Full-Coverage Flashy: New It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder Illumination With SPF 50+

Whenever the word “illuminating” gets up in the mix when you’re talking about face powders, things can get a little dicey, because, on the one hand, like, when you’re — ahem — a lady of a certain age, I think a little dewiness on the...Show More Summary

What to Buy on Your Next Trader Joe’s Trip

As you know, I have been not-so-secretly involved in a serious relationship with someone named TJ for a long time, and um… Well, we got into a big to-do recently when TJ came home one day with a new Fearless Flyer…which looked totally...Show More Summary

NARS Precision Lip Liner Is Marvelously Melty

GIRL. In the ’90s, the lip liner situation wasn’t cute. I wore lip liner just about every other day from approximately 1993 to 1999, and I spent between 10-60 minutes on each of those days tugging liner across my lips. That works out to between 182.5 and 1,095 total hours of my life, because skipping liner was NOT AN OPTION. Show More Summary

R+Co Analog Conditioning Cleansing Foam Is Airy and Epic

My shower is a veritable convener belt of hair products. I’m always rotating different ones in and out, and rarely will the same thing stay in there for weeks or months, but it does happen occasionally when I love something A LOT, which...Show More Summary

The ’90s Were Rough

As someone who came of age in the decade, I have plenty of firsthand experience in many things ’90s. For one thing, if you sought stress relief through pictures of cute kittens or babies, you couldn’t just hop on “the ‘gram” to get your fix. Show More Summary

1. Senita Athletics workout wear I took this pic last night from “That ’70s Bathroom,” which is my nickname for our guest bathroom, because everything in it is straight outta the ’70s. Note the adorable sports bra and shorts. Well…at...Show More Summary

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Foundation: Using It, Loving It, Living for It

Fun fact: a person can sing the chorus to NSYNC’s Bye Bye Bye — and don’t even play like you don’t know it! — over and over to the name of this new foundation from It Cosmetics for an obnoxious amount of time, annoying both themselves...Show More Summary
