Fast Post Friday: Fabulous Feline

I don't need to remind you that I'm a beauty product junkie and I certainly don't need to tell you again about my mascara obsession (the struggle. is. real.), so it should come as no surprise that I recently stumbled upon a new mascara I had to try. (And if by stumbled, I mean I took myself to Bed Bath & Beyond to purchase ingredients for a DIY eyebrow growth serum -- a story for another day -- and purposely walked myself through the cosmetics aisle.)

Oh, hai lashes.
Bottom line: what I used to do with two mascaras, I can now do with one. This doesn't mean I won't ever buy my dynamic duo ever again, but right now I'm not sure I will need to. The proof is in the pudding...errrr, lashes.

Happy Friday, and you're welcome.

Throwback Thursday: Kylie Jenner revived 90's lipstick, and I don't hate her for it.

Last Wednesday it was cold and rainy. Despite the fact that the calendar was telling me it was spring, it felt like winter, inspiring me to apply my ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Kae; a dark, rich, velvety brown. Admittedly a rather aggressive color, I received compliments from four of my coworkers. (Embrace the bold, people!)

It has been just over 5 months since Kylie Jenner launched her break-the-internet lip kits, and the brown lipstick trend seems only to have gained momentum. In fact, it has become so ubiquitous, that I eventually succumbed to its siren song and purchased the 90's throwback hue.

And you know what? I kind of love it. So much so that I have added allll of the below shades to my ever-growing lipstick collection. And, lucky for you, each one is budget friendly (duh):

Revlon Chocoliscious
Revlon Mink
ColourPop Kae
ColourPop Limbo
ColourPop Beeper
NYX Beauty Mark
NYX Sandstorm

While the temperatures may be (slowly) rising, and it no longer feels like the season for brown lips, you'll still probably find me rocking the look because, whatever - it's da bomb.

Fast Post Friday - Game. Set. Match.

When it comes to fashion and beauty, there are those that love to follow the rules, those that live to break them, and those that don't believe rules exist at all. (<== me)

So, when getting ready for work yesterday morning, high on some recent Harmon makeup purchases (dude, drugstore makeup is the best) and freshly painted blue nails - I began debating the age old question "Is it okay to match your shoes to your bag?"

While the fashion world may be torn on how "right" or "wrong" this practice may be, I realized there is nothing out there (at least not after a cursory Google search) about matching your eyeliner to your nail polish.

So you know what I did?

I'm pretty sure you do.
