Tumblr and YouTube haven’t been processing a lot of my posts. So my part 2 review on the Ben Nye Palette never went up, as well as some other random rants and ravings I had posted in the few days. Odd. Anyway, sorry for the delay, and those will all be up again very soon! Thanks for sticking it out, guys!
Watch out for the sneak peak at the second round of swatches from the Ben Nye Palette coming up tomorrow, with the video-review hopefully to follow tomorrow night. Then, this weekend, check back for an extravaganza of swatches from my Sally Girl eyeshadow connecting compacts, with more reviews to follow. Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone!

What's your HG Product?
What’s that one product you just can’t live without? The one that, even if you’ve overslept, your hair’s a tangled nest, and your mascara from the night before is running down your face, you never fail to use before rushing out the door? The product where, if it was discontinued, you’d go out to every drugstore/department store in a fifty mile radius and buy up...

Ben Nye Grande Lumiere Eyeshadow Review - Intro
Here’s the intro to my review of the Ben Nye Grande Lumiere Eyeshadow Palette. I had to split this from Part 1 of the video because it became too long if I didn’t and Youtube wouldn’t let me upload it otherwise… Anyway, Part 1 will be up in about half an hour, so check back for that soon!

Anonymous asked: are you from new york?
So, I couldn’t find anyone to film doing the tutorial on this week (they’re all busy with Thanksgiving stuff or grades at the end of the quarter). But hopefully by next week… Anyway, you all chose The Nude Face, so I’ll definitely be doing that, and then either Duo-Tone or Grunge (because I love both of those haha). Also, check my YouTube Channel later tonight or tomorrow...

There's an Also!
So, my Amazon order with the hair products came in today. I already tried out the Kevin Murphy Easy Rider and I’m lovin’ it! Watch for the review of that and the Schwarzkopf DustIt+ coming up next week! (I always test a product for at least a week, depending on what it is, to give it a fair review.)
Super Sorry! Hugs All Around!
So, this cold has just been wicked, and not in a good way like the musical. Honestly, I go to school, fall asleep during at least three classes, come home, and crash until about 10pm, when I finally wake up from sleeping on the couch and stumble up to bed. It seems to be subsiding, though, so I promise as long as it doesn’t come back full-force tomorrow, to post at least three large posts...
Anonymous asked: Do you think you would ever make a beauty channel on YouTube?
Just received a confirmation that my Amazon order is a day or two away! Has anyone ever heard of Kevin Murphy? He’s an Australian hair guru, with what looks like a fantastic range of products, and I hauled his Easy Rider cream-paste, a soft, pliable hold that’s super moisturising and makes hair look healthy and perfectly unstyled. As well, I got Schwarzkopf (the same company that...
Hey guys! So I’ve been pretty sick the last two days, and sleeping nearly every hour that I haven’t been in school. I’ll be back to my regular posting schedule tomorrow, as soon as Glee Club is over! Thanks for holding on!

justsophierce asked: I've seen that you consistently give good reviews of MAC products. I've tried some of their foundation products a while ago, and never really liked them because they are so heavy on my face. To broaden my question, are there any companies that make lighter foundations? I still want good coverage, just without the heaviness. I've looked into Laura Mercier and Josie Maran but...
Yay: New Camera!
Just found out that I’m getting a new camera for Chanukah, which means that all of my reviews will soon have swatch pictures (where applicable) and close-ups of the actual product (instead of industry propagated ads). Of course, I have a camera right now, but it’s macro setting isn’t very good, and I figured no such pictures are better than blurry pictures on any blog.
It's your blog too! (Kinda...)
So guys, I really wanna know what you’re looking for outta this blog. Is it reviews? Tutorials? Tips and tricks? Editorials? I love doing all of them, and will still do all of them, but now that my first round of college applications is done with, I have more time to devote to this blog, and I wanna start putting out posts that you guys really want to read. Along with that, if there...
