My Favorite Handbags

Today’s post has nothing to do with beauty, however it was a requested video, so I hope you enjoy. In this video I show you the bulk of my handbag collection. Please let me know if you would like more details on a specific item mentioned.


First Impression: Covergirl Queen All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation

The other day I posted a video on YouTube giving my first impression of the new Covergirl Queen All Day Flawless 3 in 1 foundation. I used the shade Q820 Toffee. Take a look at the video below if you’re interested.


  • inexpensive
  • wide range of shades
  • easily accessible
  • convenient, hygenic packaging
  • medium coverage
  • does not make skin oily
  • long lasting


  • accentuated my dry spots (probably won’t be an issue for oilier skin)
  • gave me a flat, matte look (again, this shouldn’t be an issue for my oily ladies)

Overall, this foundation is nice, but I don’t think it is the best fit for me. I do think it would work well for  oily skin. I may put this one away until summer when my skin is more oily to see if I like it more.

Have you tried this foundation? How did it work out for you?


Tip Tuesday #15: 3 Ways to Wear MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2


A few posts back, I posted some swatches of some new MAC purchases. One of those purchases was the new Viva Glam Nicki 2 lipstick. (Click HERE to see that post). This shade is probably one of the hardest to wear shades I own. Because I knew it would be a popular item, I decided to try it even though it is not the type of shade I typically go for. It is a very pale lavender that leans closer to white than purple. For all of the MAC Viva Glam products, 100% of the proceeds go to MAC’s AIDS foundation so I felt like it was worthy of my money. Keep reading to see a few ways to make this shade more wearable.

Review: Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Mud Mask


I don’t understand why companies have to come up with these super long names to their products. This name was so long that I couldn’t even put the whole name in the title of my post. The full name is Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Ultra Cleansing Mud Mask Orange + Bergamot. But enough of my ranting, this product is supposed to be a deep cleansing mask made to provide a clearer, brighter complexion. If you’re interested in knowing my thoughts, keep reading.
