Skin Care – again….

Skin Care – again….

I know, I know.  I seem to change skin care routines all the time.  It’s nice now that my skin isn’t so super sensitive, I can change things up for time to time and not worry. This new routine is a mix of several previous skin care routines.  So here’s what I’m currently using: Cold pressed, unrefined Coconut Oil (I get mine from Costco for around $15.00) Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser  Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System VoilaVe Rose Hip Oil I…

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream

Okay so I am FINALLY doing my review on the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream.  I’ve had this product for a few weeks now and I must say, I really like it.  Do I love it?  No.  Would I repurchase?  I’m not sure. Let’s review it.  First off it has a nice thick consistency but, to me, it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.  I feel like it “melts” into my so it doesn’t feel like I…

First Impression – Bare Minerals

First Impression – Bare Minerals

I couldn’t stand it so yesterday when I got home I washed my face and immediately reapplied the new Bare Minerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation. I put 2 drops on my brush (I used the ELF Flat Top Kabuki) and started to buff it out. Immediate first impression, yuck! I continued to try to buff the foundation in but I felt like it was clinging to the peachfuzz on my checks. Next I noticed it looked pretty streaky and…

So. Darn. Excited!

So. Darn. Excited!

A few months ago Bare Minerals came out with their very first liquid foundation, the bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation.  Needless to say, I have been DYING to try this stuff but due to my recent foundation swapping Matt would kill me if I bought something else so I’ve waited.  Add to that the fact that we are now in hard core save mode and I thought I would be waiting a while longer before I got my hands on this…

After I burnt the hell out of my hands trying to curl my hair I went and got it cut.  In the process my stylist added more layers. I normally have a decent amount of layers in my hair but the last haircut, we cut some of them out and went with a few long layers.  Long layers aren’t really good for helping my hair curl.  Well on Saturday, I showered and then went downstairs to eat some breakfast.  This…

Curling Iron = 1, Kelly = 1

Curling Iron = 1, Kelly = 1

The other day I decided to try and curl my hair. It was getting kind of late and I put minimal effort into it. I’d done my homework, watching numerous Youtube videos, and thought I could do it. Several really bad burns later I ditched my effort with only about half my hair done. It didn’t look great and my finger was hurting pretty bad. About 10 mins after my failed attempt I looked down and noticed I had a…

Too much of a good thing?

Too much of a good thing?

A few months ago my skin was super dry. I’d seen a few Youtubers raving about L’oreal Lumi foundation but at the time I’d just spent $45.00 on some Stila foundation. I knew Matt would not be happy about me wanting to try something else. I was chatting with my mom one day and she mentioned she had some Lumi that she’d bought and only used a few times. The next time I saw her she gave me the Lumi…

Since this has turned into a beauty blog, I’d like to share a new product I found at Ulta.  It’s the Freeman Facial Polishing Mask with Charcoal and Black Sugar.  I stumbled across this a few weeks ago but I wanted to try it out a few times before I reviewed it.  I’ve used it several times over the past few weeks and I’m impressed!  For $3.99, this stuff is GREAT!  I try to use it about 2x a week…

No Primer, No Problem!

No Primer, No Problem!

As you all know, I’ve recently become OBSESSED with make-up tutorials on Youtube.  Well, I have a few of my faves, but I also have a few others that I will occasionally check out.  GossMakeupArtist is one I occasionally watch.  Last week he posted a GREAT tip on how to make your foundation last.  Seeing as I’ve been having foundation issues, I wanted to know what his tip was. Now, before I go into exactly what you do, I just…

A New fave (yup another mascara post)

A New fave (yup another mascara post)

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write a post about mascara! A while back I wrote about my current favorite mascara, Revlon Lash Potion.  This stuff is pretty wonderful but it’s waterproof, like really waterproof.  Honestly I don’t really mind if my mascara doesn’t fully wash off at night.  I personally think you should wear mascara 24/7 but there comes a time when not washing off starts to make the next day’s mascara all clumpy.  I started…
