Glossier Lash Slick Mascara: Review and Close-Up Photos

I’ve been wearing Glossier Lash Slick for the past few weeks, and I want to share my first initial review. I’m not a huge Glossier/ITG fan, but I do love natural mascaras and I had some store credit I wanted to use.

Pat McGrath LuxeTrance Lipstick Review and Swatches | Realness

The sequins, limited releases, expensive prices, and the boring excuse that I have too much makeup deterred me from trying Pat McGrath’s makeup line when it first launched. The excessive alliteration and descriptive claims on her website reminded me of something I would have tried to write in grade five and I kind of hated…… Continue reading Pat McGrath LuxeTrance Lipstick Review and Swatches | Realness

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna | Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow

The Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Fenty Glow was the only lip product released in Fenty Beauty’s initial launch. It was also the only product I was interested in because I’ve really been into lip products lately and its initial reviews were quite positive.
