Ren Clean Skincare

I’m going to apologize at the start and say it’s been crazy recently so I haven’t had a lot of time to dedicate to Brand Beat. Saying that, I still want to publish my reviews, but they will be a different style than before. In a nutshell, I’ve never used any Ren before and I…

MINI BONUS! LOLITA!

Hey hey hey so today I was feeling very lazy and decided to do a quick look using the new Lolita Eyeshadow & Blush.  Right now monochromatic is IN (according to Sephora) and products like this are basically a dream if you’re looking for a way to look ~*kEwL*~ and not spend a lot of…

Huda Beauty

Today was not a day for Huda Beauty. Some brands are designed to be quick for the girl on the go, and some create textured eyeshadow palettes and glow kits designed to highlight your whole face. You can guess which category Huda falls into. I was late to work and didn’t pack food so I…

Sephora Newness! June 20 Edition

Lancome has been my next brand for like a week but I just haven’t found the energy to take the plunge and do a review. Fortunately, we have a lot of newness in store so I could spend the day distracting myself. Every month or so, Sephora puts up what is called a new animation….

Korres

TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW OF SKINCARE! ANOTHER BRAND WHERE I HAVEN’T TRIED ANY OF THE PRODUCTS. What a crazy week I’m having. Last night I brought you the disastrous combination of Five Guys and a peel off mask. Fortunately, this endeavor was a little more successful (minus some burnt popcorn). And by more successful…

Boscia

Tonight I made the horrible decision of ordering Five Guys. Now ordinarily I would never dare say those words, but when you have 45 minutes and plan to do a 25 minute mask, you need to be smart. I had to run all over the place to get my wallet and food just so I…

J’Adore Dior

When I think of Dior, I don’t think of fashion or makeup or luxury. I think of Charlize Theron saying j’adore Dior or Natalie Portman fooling around with a man whose looks were designed for a fragrance ad. Why do the fragrances, scents I don’t even like, stand out the strongest? Advertising, man. I actually…

Ole Henriksen

Welcome to the second skincare brand review! Thursday nights I work late which means no makeup, only removing of my face to help clean the skin below. The first moisturizer I used as an adult was Sheer Transformation by Ole Henriksen. My roommate gave me a travel sized version she didn’t need and I was…

Givenchy

Hello hello again friends. Today was a special one because it was my first official fancy brand. I consider the brands based on high end design lines (Marc Jacobs, YSL, Dior, etc.) to be the most luxurious of the luxury found at Sephora. Is this true? Who’s to know! It wouldn’t be the first time…

Becca 

I’m going to start this review honestly and say my face feels like it needs cleaned. I wish I didn’t have plans tonight because nothing would satisfy me more than scrubbing off my face and revealing the skin I still think is hidden underneath. Nevertheless. There was a long break between brands and I was…
