Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk | Review and Swatches

I’ve heard primarily positive reviews about the Glossier Cloud Paints (bff link) since they were first released, so I knew that I would pick one up if and when I made my first order.

My Favourite Makeup Brushes | Part 1: FACE

In this post, I will be talking about the face brushes that I reach for regularly. The brands, hair types, and price points featured are quite diverse. I think it’s important to note that the most expensive or most popular brushes aren’t necessarily the best. Before purchasing new makeup brushes, you should know which shapes and hair types…… Continue reading My Favourite Makeup Brushes | Part 1: FACE
