First Impressions: Julep eyeshadow 101

Good for travel, and for your makeup bag



Much Love,



Julep Customizeable box

I haven’t gotten a Julep box in almost a year

With the new customize your box without paying extra rules, well…I had to see if there was something I wanted.

I’ll point out my makeup was put on 13 or so hours before and endured a nap and no touch ups. Hail Temptu! Love my airbrush makeup.

Much Love,

Cover|FX Custom Cover Drops demo/swatch

Amazing coverage, lovely texture…make your own foundation, BB cream, tinted moisturizer!

I have been looking for a good, reliable back-up to airbrushing that I could use on weekends, too, without needing to airbrush every time I want to do my foundation.┬áThe associate at Sephora Jersey City directed me to this and I’ll have to go thank her. With the large selection of colors, you should be able to find the perfect foundation.

Thank you for watching!

November Birchbox unboxing

Yeah, I used to do this all the time. I’m brave.

I took my laptop apart to check and clean the fan.

Yep, needs a new one, but I saw heat damage already, and I messed up my keyboard. Darn. However, I connected and put everything back together right, just I have to take the keyboard off and see if I can fix that. Oops.

Meanwhile, here’s my November Birchbox.

Lorac Porefection Concealer

It’s not my holy grail of concealers…yet

Plus, proof men wear makeup on tv.

I really like this concealer, and the more I use it, the more I think it might end up being my favorite full-coverage product.

Now, go have some cider!

Much Love,


Japonesque eyeshadow

Pumpkin spice

First of all, isn’t Autumn the best?

It’s my favorite season. I look forward to it at the start of winter, every year. I love orange, and red and gold, and the smell in the air. I love the blue crisp days and the overcast, windy ones. I love hot drinks and warm sweaters and the sound your footsteps make when the air is dry, and cool, and the sound crunches through the air. This picture was taken last year in Sleepy Hollow while on a mini exploratory road trip on a cold, rainy fall day with my friend Ron. He said I was one of the forgotten Spice Girls, Pumpkin Spice. It was a great day.

September’s Birchbox was a great box

I especially loved this month’s box. It was full of stuff, and had 2 full-sized products, and that makes me very, very happy.

My September #birchbox can't wait to do a video on cheapyummyshiny about it.
