KathleenLights x Colourpop Dream St Palette: The Truth

Oh, the KathleenLights x Colourpop Dream St palette. I don’t even know what to say about it at this point.

Kidding. I do know what to say about it. I have lots to say about it. What I meant is my opinion changed so drastically on it that I just don’t know what to say.

Is that an expression other people use? Or just me?

Carli Bybel Eyeshadow + Highlighter Palette

 

I’ve been meaning to write a review of the BH Cosmetics X Carli Bybel palette for awhile now. I just never got around to it.

The palette sits there in my makeup drawer, staring at me accusingly. Why? It is asking. Why can’t you write about me? Don’t you love me?

Well, yes. I do love you, actually.

I’m just really lazy.

(I mean, this whole blog is ridiculous. Just… don’t tell anyone, ok? And we’ll pretend this is a staid, serious blog. About personal finance or something. Yeah, that’s right. This is a personal finance blog dedicated to helping people get money so they can buy makeup.)

Cheap drugstore foundation – is it any good? Wet ‘n Wild Photo Focus

Liquid foundation is one of those things that is really scary for a makeup newbie. It seems like something professional makeup artists use, not something a regular person should be using on a daily basis.

Or am I the only one who felt that way? I can’t be, right? I’m not the only one who was terrified of foundation?

(don’t tell me if I’m wrong and everyone is cool with liquid foundation. Allow me to enjoy my delusions that the world shares my incompetence, ok?)

Tubing Mascara? What is that?

Tubing mascara: what is it? Does it work?

So I was watching a Tati video one day on YouTube and she mentioned something along the lines of, “and if you don’t want to kill your lashes with waterproof mascara every day, try a tubing mascara.” (I am definitely misquoting her here. It was something along those lines, but I don’t remember exactly. Please don’t shoot me.) And I immediately thought, what is tubing mascara? Sounds like something I should check out.

Simple Yet Delicious: Korean Beef Bowl

This Korean Beef Bowl gives you all the flavors of Korean bbq in 15 minutes. Serve with leftover rice and a side salad, and you have dinner in less than half an hour!

Just kidding. Nothing about this Korean beef recipe is slimy. The title of this post just reminded me of that scene in The Lion King. Don’t ask. My brain is a weird place, ok?

The finished product. Yummmmm….

I was originally drawn to this recipe because it looks so simple, and because I love soy/ginger/sugar flavor combos. (My husband usually doesn’t, though, but oh well. I cook the supper so I call the shots.)
