Reviewing Urban Decay's "The Vice Palette" [In Our Makeup Bag]

When I opened this palette, I almost started drooling (sorry for the visual). It's a great range of shades; lots of my fave, neutrals, but a good amount of fun, bright colors to add pop!

CC Beauty Live: Quick & Dirty Review-Maybelline FIT Collection

Every few months when I start to run out of my high-end make up, I tend to re-evaluate why I'm spending so much money on products.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Beauty Must-Haves

Yesterday, after a failed attempt to apply chunky mascara to my lashes (it was gross), I decided it was time to restock. Only when I ran over to my local CVS to pick up a new one, I was totally overwhelmed. Do you have any idea how many different kinds of mascara there are? My god!
