…the contents were great — I ain’t mad at it. This bag had a good portion of a full face of color products, a brush (which warms my Broadly little heart) and an Innisfree mask I’d been wanting to try. Score! Continue Reading
It’s kind of hard not to love a set of soft, useable brushes at the price point of a whopping $12. I’ve paid more than double that for single brushes in the past (looking at you, MAC brushes). Continue Reading
The biggest lash wand I have ever seen and a slick glossy formula combine to explain the name — after a single coat, ‘Daaaamn’ was my first reaction. Continue Reading
After April 2019 left me a bit disappointed with Sephora PLAY!, I was eager to see what May had to offer before deciding whether to keep the subscription or move on to a different one. While I want the products to review, I also want products that will potentially work for me, and the last box was pretty meh, with products that had been released a long time ago, or were simply problematic in other ways. Continue Reading
This lifestyle box offers an interesting assortment of beauty, fashion, and lifestyle goodies for the subscriber, and this season’s box was worth the box price. Continue Reading

…and it’s glorious. I received this gift with purchase bag two days ago, and since there’s 10 good-sized lip products in the bag, I’m going to be testing out one per day for the next 10 days and posting reviews!… Continue Reading
No hair solution is one-style-fits-all. Those of us with thick hair have different needs than those with thinning hair; curly girls have needs that straight-haired peeps don’t.

Function of Beauty produces customized hair products (shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in conditioner) that can address up to 5 issues you have with your hair in one custom-mix formula. They offer both single orders and a discounted subscription service with auto-shipping. Continue Reading
I see you sent me all the old stuff. Thx. Rly.
I’m something of an old hand with subscription boxes. For a while, I received several every month of varied types, and recently, I chose to return to sub-land, albeit in a much less voracious way. Since I tend to like a large number of the brands at Sephora, I decided to try out the company’s box, PLAY!, and this is the first box I received. Continue Reading
I have a dysfunctional relationship with makeup.
When I say this, I mean that I have never really mastered the physical techniques. I know what the experts, beauty-icon how-to manuals, internet beauty gurus, and random broads with too much mascara say is the best way to apply it. However, my manual dexterity rates somewhere between ‘hyperactive spider monkey after too much coffee’ and ‘actual disability in muscular control,’ which means ‘simple’ techniques become an exercise in creative obscenity at ever-increasing volumes and the progenitor of a growing stack of used makeup wipes on my bathroom counter.
