Review + Swatches: Physicians Formula Conceal RX Physician's Strength Concealer in Natural Light

Hi everyone! I hope you guys are having a great weekend so far; tomorrow I'm going to an amusement park with my sister, who I haven't seen in a long time! :D

Today I'm reviewing the Physician's Formula Conceal RX Concealer, available at for $8.69. Normally Physician's Formula is labeled as the "mom" brand, so when I first heard about how great this is, I was surprised. My friend (who is very particular about what she puts on her face), loves this and highly recommended it for heavy duty concealing.

So, did I like it?

Review: Queen Helene Gentle Oatmeal n' Honey Natural Face Scrub

Hey lovelies! I'm back with another review :)

About three months ago, I went to Walgreens to do some quick retail therapy. I was having a rough day, and even though I would've rather gone to Sephora, I decided to look through the drugstore beauty section. To my surprise, I found some great products that were super inexpensive!

One of those products is the Queen Helene Oatmeal n' Honey Scrub. With a meager price tag of only $4.60 at, it's definitely an awesome bang for your buck.

New Camera!

Hey everyone!

First off, I apologize for being a bit MIA lately. I've been busy with family issues. Fortunately, I'm back!

Now for the big news: My dad generously bought me a new camera for an early birthday present! Instead of using my iPod5, I now have a Samsung Galaxy camera! The picture quality is great and it comes with so many options. I would definitely recommend it over a Sony Cybershot!

I hope you guys enjoy the change!

Review + Swatches: Sephora Collection Prisma Chrome Eyeshadows

One word. Pigment. Just those two syllables can describe these. I recently picked up the Sephora Collection Prisma Chrome eyeshadows during my last trip to Sephora. After seeing YouTube beauty gurus emilynoel83 and melmphs rave about these, I knew they had to be mine.

Review + Swatches: L'Oreal Telescopic Liquid Eyeliner in Carbon Black

Hi guys! Today I'm reviewing my everyday eyeliner for you, the L'Oreal Telescopic Liquid Eyeliner in Carbon Black. I bought this about two months ago from Walgreens when I had run out of my Lancôme Artliner. I loved my Lancôme eyeliner because of the tip (I have one hooded eye and one normal eye, so I need an eyeliner that can make a thin line), however it was getting a bit expensive when I had to drop $30 every two months just for an eyeliner.

Initially, I chose this because I wanted an eyeliner that wouldn't smudge/fade, was very black, and had a tip that was thin, yet wasn't too flexible.

Did it work for me?
