EauMG’s June 2018 Empties

June 2018 Empties

I am trying so hard to buy less. And I’m also failing at it. In June, I ended up making an e.l.f. order because I wanted to try their new foundation and SPF. But, with them it’s so cheap that the next thing you know, you’ve ordered 6 things you didn’t need. Anyway, I love everything that I bought. I think elf is doing the best with the “no makeup makeup” look than anyone else. I absolutely love the serum foundation because it basically looks like nothing (super… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Mask Yourself This – Some Borghese Mini Reviews

Borghese

Like every other brand, both old and new, Borghese is now on a quest to market itself to a younger crowd.¹ Which I totally understand and think is a good thing. The market has changed a lot. There are “influencers” and most people/new customers take recommendations from people online or on apps versus sales associates or glossy mags. I get it. However, I really hope they don’t change too much. I got a little spooked recently and made a rather larger order of old favorites. This is a nostalgic brand… Continue reading

MAC had a sale on some limited edition collections. This sale contained 2 things that I have wanted but thought I missed out on. It was nice to see it back and half price! I also made an Ulta order mainly to get skincare for my husband since apparently he is incapable… Continue reading | 12 Comments

Stuff to Buy Yourself for Valentine’s 2018

Jeanette MacDonald

Each year I put together a Valentine’s Gift Guide. I usually add a disclaimer to them something like “I am throwing this together as an excuse to talk about rose-scented things and things to get me out of a winter funk”. My disclaimer is the truth. So, instead of saying this is some sort of gift guide, I’m going to be frank. This is a list of 14 ridiculous things that I wish I could buy myself in the middle of February. It has nothing to do with Valentine’s… Continue reading | 8 Comments

EauMG’s 2017 Empties & Thoughts

2017 Empties

Empties are posts that I do where I tally the amount of beauty products that I empty. It also is something that I do that makes me feel like a total hoarder (empty bottles accumulate until the end of a month for a “photo shoot”), but hey, bloggers are weird people. There’s a few reasons why I’m so consistent with my Empties post. Firstly, it helps me keep up with what I’m actually using. I can quickly reference and see if something was a hit/miss for… Continue reading | 18 Comments
