July 2017 Empties

I went on a day vacation in upstate New York and spent $50 at a drugstore because they had all the stuff that is always sold out in NYC, like that new L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara and the chrome shadows. That Lash Paradise Mascara is amazing! It makes me look like I have lashes (and I pretty much don’t in real life). I ran out of cleanser so I bought La Roche-Posay Hydrating Cleanser, which I really like (no fragrance, low… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Update: August 2017

vintage Budapest spa

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I can’t believe it’s already August.

This week I’m on vacation to Budapest (and maybe Vienna, I don’t know yet). I will have posts scheduled, so please keep stopping by! However, there will be a delay approving comments.

June 2017 Empties

Oh, June, I did some damage. I bought Edward Bess makeup. I also bought 2 Anastasia Beverly Hills lip glosses because they were 50% off and they are my favorite lip gloss formula. I went to Harmon and they had the Andalou Rose Collection marked down to like 75% off. I picked up a few things that I like. How could I resist?!

AND THEN Ricky’s had an amazing sale where Sugarpill eyeshadows were $3 and liquid lipsticks were under $5… Continue reading | 2 Comments
