Dear Shane Dawson, SYM!

...wid a straw.
Imagine: pretending to care about a community, claiming to share similar interest, designing a cash grab to fleece said community, make millions off products and merchandise (did I mention that this charlatan never even posted one single video using his palette?)...then turning around and blasting the same community for loving negativity and drama. After using drama to create hype for his mediocre "docu-series" and gaudy products. Boy go and drink bleach yuh *redacted* parasite. The same energy you have for lambasting an entire sub-set of YouTube - that made you richer - keep fuh nasty minded, gutter snipe friends. I hope you truly are "done with the drama and tea". You should be done with YouTube period! Yuh *redacted* fraud! I particularly hope that everyone can now see through your "I'm so sensitive" charade and never put another cent of their hard earned money in your condescending, manipulative pockets. You are a disgrace.  
And jus…

Mask Monday | Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask

This post is sooooooo overdue. Peter Thomas Roth doesn't even offer this kind of kit any more. From the website: "This ultra-gentle gel helps soothe, hydrate and detoxify the look of dry, irritated skin with botanical extracts of Cucumber, Papaya, Chamomile, Pineapple, Sugar Maple, Sugarcane, Orange, Lemon, Bilberry and Aloe Vera. Excellent for helping to calm and soothe the skin's appearance after sun exposure, peels, waxing, facials and extractions."

Usage: Apply a generous coat on clean skin. Allow mask to remain on for 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water. For a very cool treatment, refrigerate product. For an intensive treatment, apply a thin layer as the last layer of skin care and leave on overnight. Use 2-3 times a week or daily for intensive hydration.

Refrigerating this product definitely adds to the soothing experience. Especially in dis heat...cawwww daddy. Soothing is really all this product offers. Nothing to shout about. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy…

The Wish List Tag

Indicative of how 2020 is going...I did this entire thing, then hit 'undo' one time too many and lost everything. The aliens are cracking up watching the season finale of earth.
Many thanks to Sarah and Mandy for bringing the Wish List Tag to the beauty community.
I've a few wish list posts here so I figured I could get in de do. These are a couple of things from Nordstrom, Sephora and Beautylish that I've been lusting after.
Oldest product on your wish list
NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil 'Train Bleu'. That was added to my Sephora Loves List since October 23, 2016. The irony is that I've purchased two Holiday lipstick pencil sets and still don't have this infamous shade.

Newest product on your wish list
Christian Louboutin LoubiGraffiti Velvet Matte Lip Color 'So Tango'. Look at that limited edition packaging 😍

Oh How The Mighty Have Fallen

Sounds dramatic right? It is.

For the first time since I can remember, I purchased nothing at a M.A.C Holiday launch event. Just for context, I've been religiously shopping with the local M.A.C franchise since 2010.

Holiday 2019 was themed 'Starring You' and they really played it up with the displays and the packaging.

M.A.C released, and re-released, a lot of products in this collection. As per usual, our store didn't get everything. Most notably, the Light and Medium Star-Dipped Face Compacts. I definitely would have bought that medium one. 

The mini lip kits were out in full force.

As you can see, the 12 set made yet another come back...but it did include new shades. 'Whisper of Gilt' returned once again but this time in a kit with a dazzleglass and medium face fan brush.

I mean, the things were pretty right? But I had my heart set on that Medium Face Compact and since it wasn't there I left with nada. I even considered getting the Star-Dazzle Kit but th…

Top 20 for Spring 2020 | Sephora Sale Recommendations

I'm really conflicted about making this post. On one hand, it's tradition. On the other, we are in a global pandemic and a lot of people have lost their means of income. Added to that, Sephora seems not to be treating all their US staff fairly...and generally things are a mess; do we even need more stuff?

Hannah Louise Poston shared some gems recently about shopping sales in general.

Then I saw Risa Does Makeup's video and agreed with her method.

So here are my top twenty recommendations. Things I would definitely repurchase. Most of them I've mentioned before so check out the links for more information.

Sampled Out | Perfumes

Well howdy to a flaming 2020 💣

Ok, let's remain positive and do what we have to to beat this thing.

If you're looking for a brief escape from the onslaught of bad news, #nojudgementzone here. Let me hop back into this blogging thing for a much needed source of distraction and hopefully; a lil product information.

We've never really talked about perfumes before so let's do that:

Maison Margiela REPLICA 'Dancing On The Moon' 0.04 fl. oz.

Description: "Dancing On The Moon is an invitation to an extraterrestrial escape.
The fragrance delicately combines a bouquet of white flowers with a soft mineral side.
White Jasmine flower is lifted by aldehydes and moonflower notes.
As the perfume evolves, the warmer notes of ambergris, musk and vanilla emerge.

Feel the weightlessness of your body slip away from reality.
Your ethereal moves cast pale shadows on the lunar landscape.
A gracious defiance.

This bright Eau de Parfum is part of the Replica Fantasies Collection.
