Dear Beauty "Guru's": An Open Letter


There's a new De-Cluttering revolution going around in the beauty community, and it makes me sick.

There has been a rash of de-cluttering videos on youtube, where a "Beauty Guru" basically goes through his or her makeup collection and gives away, throws away, or donates just buckets of makeup (most not even used or barely touched). Then a few videos later has a huge haul or a haul series, because they just "got rid of my whole collection!' 

I have two big problem with this. One is that they are feeding into the whole feeling that you can never have enough, never have the best, that theres always more to buy to make you happy. Which is not true. This deep feeling of "NEED" when it comes to makeup. We don't need makeup, we like it. We do not need to have huge collections, we like it. We do not need to have 50 blushes, we like it. I do not need to have 100 lipsticks, i like it. I've seen several of these clean outs and they are getting rid of perfectly good makeup, and then buying replacements...... #wUt. I don't understand. If you truly want to downsize absolutely good for you, but dang you couldn't make it 6 weeks before you started replacing things you've trashed?

The second thing is that these videos seem like filler videos to "have a revelation" that you have too much makeup, get rid of it, and purchasing more. So it feels like some girls are just doing this for views. Im talking about these people that have a huge subscriber base of hundred of thousand and millions, its for the views, we get it. Gotta get that Adsense money honey. Girl please its so noticeable. 

There are other people that are actually making a conscience decision to downsize and I respect that. So before you start a huge project just be honest with yourself and your followers about your reasons why you want to do it.

My Favorite MAC Lipstick.


Its so good, i've purchased it 3 times!


If I have a signature color it is Craving from MAC. I found it 6 maybe 7 years ago from a recommendation from Emily Noel. She said she wore it a lot when she did the news. Well i was sold... It is that perfect pinky-berry. I like this one so much because so many berry colored lipstick pulls brown or red, nope not this one!! I have actually repurchased this 3 times and I will be needing a 4th anytime now. I cant recommend this one enough go check it out!

She's a Beauty.

Beauty Blogger Supplies: Cheap Wipes

Ok Wal-Mart got me on this one. 

The Equate Beauty Original Clean Wet Cleansing Towelettes... (woah man what a name) are an affordable and utalitarian blogging tool that you might want to check out. 

The come in a two 60 packs packaged together for your blogging pleasure. They are mildly textured to help remove makeup. 

They are lightly scented and there is another version that is for sensitive skin (they have a green strip where this one is blue). 

So for $6 you get 120 wipes for removing the swatchy swatches. The only issues I have with these is that they are not wet enough to remove MY face makeup. Although this might be different from you, because I wear long wearing 14+hours makeup. #CakeDatFaceBoo. But I LOVE THESE FOR SWATCHES!!! These are a must have for bloggers who take multiple swatches at a time!! I never run out!! 

1. Cheap
2. Bundled pack
3. Effective for removing swatches
4. Easily accessible at your local Wally World 

1. Sticker Closure
2. Not very effective on long wearing makeup.

So I ask you, what's your favorite way of removing swatches??
