Benefit Gimme Brow

benefit gimme brow review

So I guess I’ve got pretty okay eyebrows. They aren’t too thick or bushy, or too thin and tiny. In my attempts to do anything with my brows in the past, I always hated how it looked. There’s nothing worse than an obviously drawn in eyebrow. My mom had mentioned to me ages ago she liked the Benefit Gimme Brow because it as easy to use and didn’t look crazy after application….so I finally picked one up. $24 seemed like a lot to spend for a tiny little tube, but what else can I except from anything at Sephora?

Current Base Products

favorite base products

I usually try to keep my base products the same on a day to day basis. 1. I find this easier in the morning, because I’m too tired to have to think. 2. I can get to really know products by using them everyday. 3. I really like what I’m using, so why change! I don’t keep a lot of my make up out on my vanity, so every month or so I do a little rotation. This month, these are the products that have been out and been getting good use!

Wen Fig Cleansing Conditioner

One of the earliest reviews I ever did was for the Wen Cleansing Conditioner. When I got a bottle of the same product in a different scent, I hadn’t planned to do another review since there wouldn’t be much new to say. Buuuuuut, I was wrong. Today we’re talking about the Wen Cleansing Conditioner in the Fig scent. I LOVE figs, and since I loved Wen I really wanted to try the scent. I also think I read somewhere the fig scent was more hydrating and better for curly hair, but I don’t know were I read that.

Reading Lately #2

the catcher in the rye

For 2015 my goal is to read 25 books. I doubt I’ve ever come close to reading that many books in a year, but I’ve also never really tried. Last year I really stepped up my reading game, and I’m hoping the trend continues. I thought I’d share with you lovely people what I’ve been reading. Maybe you’ll find some inspiration?

February Empties 2015

february empties

Look at this little chunk of trash I’ve got here! This month I finished up a good handful of beauty and make up products, as well as a little clear out of a few old things. This is my favorite post of the month because it shows I really use the products I talk about. So many bloggers are posting new reviews every other day, and I find it hard to believe they actually use anything up! Well, I love finishing products, even if I love them. This way I can feel better about buying anything new.

February Favorites 2015

The first favorites I ever did was in February of 2013. It wasn’t until last year I started to do them more regularly. This month, I rediscovered a few old favorites, which is always fun because it means I didn’t spend money and instead found a love for things I already owned! I tend to use a lot of the same products day to day, so when it comes to make up, a favorite really means I used it a lot during the month. It’d be nice if I could afford to have brand new products in every months favorite, but in reality that just isn’t how most peoples lives work!

Garnier Fructis Texture Tease

Sometimes I randomly pick up items from the drugstore with very little research, luckily, sometimes they work out in my favor. Once upon a time, Tati from GlamLifeGuru mentioned that the Garnier Texture Tease Dry Touch Finishing Spray was an almost exact dupe for the Bumble and Bumble Dryspun Finish. I thought “oh, that stuff seems cool, maybe I’ll pick it up.” And before I new it, it was coming home with me even though I didn’t really know what a texturizing spray was. Also, texturizing isn’t a word.
