Dupe or No Dupe: Urban Decay’s Naked Vs. Wetn’Wild’s Walking on Eggshells

Hello friends!

Sooooo this post was supposed to be for next week and accidentally published yesterday. This is what happens when you have 13 hour work days. (ProTip: I found out L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadow lasts at least 14 hours, which is both impressive and terrifying.) Anyway, I decided I might as well let this post be free, and just write a new one for next week. So without further ado:

Welcome to a new and randomly occurring feature, called Dupe or No Dupe!

In this series, we’re going to breakdown some internet rumors and myths regarding dupes!

On today’s show: Urban Decay’s Naked Palette VS. WetnWild’s Walking on Eggshells!

3 Fall Beauty Trends on a Budget

Hey friends!

Although it’s a million degrees outside where I live, I love fall colors. Grad school and work are keeping me super busy so I feel like I need to start preparing my fall stash, or it’s all going to pass me by.

I was particularly inspired by Self Magazine’s Fresh for Fall Trends in their September issue. However, I wasn’t feeling like paying $34 for each makeup item.

And you know how I roll. So here are some of my favorite fall trends, on a budget!

Happy Hour: August Beauty Favorites Under $10

Hey friends,

So, I got it in my head that I could make a video about my August Beauty Favorites Under $10. (Plus 3 beers!)

“Everyone does it.” I thought, “It will be eassssssyyyy.”

Yeah, no.

Things fell apart quickly. Let’s just say that. (Hence why this post is coming out at 11pm. Sorry!)

However, I HATE wasting things, including time, so I have to at least share my attempts at a video. And you can admire my carpet.

Keep reading for my first and last video ever!

It all went downhill from here.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Trios: Sun-Set to See and No Scalpers Allowed

Hello Beauties!

I totally did not intend to write this post.

You see, I promised myself I wouldn’t buy any of the new Wet n’ Wild Limited Edition Color Icon Trios because I’m more of a neutrals gal and because I have 6094 eyeshadows.

But then my friend wanted to know about Sun-Set to See, and what kind of friend would I be to deny her?

And because you can’t write a post about just one eye shadow trio, I had to get another one.

So, here we are. Oops?

No Scalpers Allowed and Sun-Set to See

5 Favorite Drugstore Blushes: Worth the Hype?

Hello beauties!

In the beginning, as a makeup newbie, lost and confused, I hit up Pinterest for products I should try. It was a great source for some of my now favorites, but sometimes I felt products got unreasonably hyped up.

Well, fear not. Today we are going to sift through the 5 most hyped up drugstore blush products on Pinterest to find out if they’re really worth it. Plus, I also included a BONUS blush steal . (It’s Friday, I was feeling celebratory!)

Disclosure: I don’t get paid to do any of these reviews. These products are bought with my sad grad school funds and opinions are my own!
