I was browsing the drugstore isle at my Ulta (as I always do whenever I go!) and saw the new stand for the new L’Oreal Color Riche La Palette Nudes coming out with, and — to my surprise — there was one palette of the Nude 2 palettes sitting there. Only one. So of course I snatched it up to review for you all!
Just like me! 🙂
Few people in my every-day-life can understand how excited I get for a new eyeshadow palette or a foundation that covers all my spots without having to apply a thousand layers layers. 😉
Which is one of the reasons I wanted to blog about beauty and makeup — I wanted to discover gals that could get excited with me about new makeup releases.
Gals like you!
And like the gals over on La Bella: Sisterhood of Beauty. If you’ve never heard of this Facebook group, than let me enlighten you so that you have the opportunity to join this fabulous group of beauty lovers.
A Little History of Beyond the Mask
“BEYOND THE MASK majors in surprises,” Burns said of the film that opens in the English countryside and ends in high action. “From production quality and special effects to acting to the storyline combo of gospel and adventure, this is Christian filmmaking 2.0,” Burns said, adding proudly, “and from a strongly homeschooled production community.”
Impressed by the artistic values, Dr. Bruce Eagleson, founder of the Alliance of Christian Home Education Leadership, praised BEYOND THE MASK as endorsements also pour in from state leaders. “Movies should be a good story well told,” Eagleson wrote in his movie critique, “and while BEYOND THE MASK remains faithful to the gospel, primarily it is a good story well told.”
Brushes are an important part of your makeup routine (for those of us who like to use brushes to apply our makeup, that is), so I’m always on the lookout to expand my brush collection.
The company Bellange approached me in January, wanting to see if I would like to try out their brush set that included 10 different types of face brushes. The whole set retails for just under $20, which seemed a pretty decent price for face brushes, so I was intrigued and (as is obvious because I am writing this post) I said yes.
It’s time for me to share the products I really loved during the month of February!
I also wanted to clarify that I am not picking products just to share — I will only feature products in these monthly posts that I truly loved and used a lot during the month. If there is a month where I didn’t gravitate toward any products more than others, I won’t have a monthly favorites. Does that make sense? I hope so!
With that being said, I only have three products that really stood out to me this month. They were all relatively new purchases for me, and I just got into a rut where I was using them on a daily basis. Let’s start from the top!
The last post for the month of February, and today we’re talking all about the goodies that were sent out in BoxyCharm’s February box. Are any of you subscribed to get their boxes? I’d love to hear what you thought of your the February box!
If you don’t know what BoxyCharm is all about, see my first unboxing post and I lay out all the details of this fabulous beauty subscription service.
Really quick, I want to get on here and let you know that my blog schedule is going to change up a bit. Starting this week I will only be posting twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays (So the next beauty post will go up tomorrow). I’m not sure if this will be my new schedule from now on, but it will be for the next several months.
I’ve been finding myself worn thin between traveling, being a wife, and putting out quality posts for you all. And since the next few months will only get busier as we prepare to move and my husband has some down time to spend with me, I think this is the best way I can balance everything.
Who knows, maybe once we move and my husband starts radiology residency (and I never see him anymore, lol!), I’ll be able to go back to my usual, 3 posts a week, schedule.
I was really torn while making this decision, but I think — in the end — it’s for the best. I hope you all understand and aren’t too disappointed in the lack of posts in the months ahead. Stick around — I am hoping this schedule isn’t forever!
