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.

2017 Favourites: Skincare

My passion for skincare flourished this year. Growing up, I had always hated washing my face. It was messy and water got everywhere and it took too long and I didn’t know what I was doing.

Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in 570 LA Pink | First Impressions Review and Swatches

I had trouble finding reviews and swatches for the new Dior Addict Lacquer Sticks, especially in the shade 570 LA Pink.
