Quick and easy is the name of the game when it comes to the Rimmel London ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Sticks. Rimmel consistently has great products and these are no different. I picked up two shades, Trespassing Taupe and Bluffing for starters. 

REVIEW | L'Oreal Infallible Eye Crayon

Getting off my liquid lipstick train and hopping onto the eyeshadow pencil express, I've been collecting and trying a bunch of them lately. I've done reviews and comparisons on the ones from Milani, NYX, and Tarte but my collection has grown again. Tati from glamlifeguru actually alerted me to the L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayons and she did not steer me wrong. I picked up two shades that I would get the most use out of, Enduring Rose and Forever Taupe.

TIPS ┊ Foundation 101

flawless foundation tips, how to wear foundation, how to avoid cakey foundation, how to apply foundation
With the slew of foundation posts I've been blogging about last week, I thought it would be apt to share 10 of my favorite tips for applying them, whether powder, liquid, or stick. I wanted to update my Summer-proof Makeup Tips that I posted almost 2 years ago. Some of these tips have been bandied about on the interwebz before but hopefully, some of these tips will be fresh and useful. Without further ado, let's jump into them!

PRODUCT SMACKDOWN ┊Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation vs Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation shade 3.0 review swatches, Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation 128 warm nude review swatches
One of my favorite pastimes is to find affordable alternatives to my beloved high end products. Don't get me wrong, the high end stuff is amazing but being a student, I need to be stricter about what I spend on. Most of the time, the high end stuff is great, justifying the price; with drugstore things, it can be a hit or miss. I've been looking for an affordable alternative to my favorite summertime foundation, the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation, because I need a darker shade as I inevitably tan, regardless of how much sunscreen I slather on. The Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation appealed to me because I've had good experiences with their concealers. Do I think it's a dead-on dupe? Keep reading to find out!
