Honest Makeup and Skin Care Reviews | What is the Best Affordable Makeup?
Unlike 10 years ago, there are thousands of makeup options to choose from. Between constant new releases and advertisers shoving new makeup down your throat it can be hard to stay on-trend and keep cash in your wallet. But what makeup is worth your money? And what influencers out there can you really trust at the end of the day?
I personally have a lot of trouble trusting beauty gurus on YouTube and Instagram due to the fact that we all know that half the time they are paid to promote over-priced items and half of them aren’t worth our time or money. So I decided to cut through the BS and discover which brands are actually worth your cold hard cash. My goal is to find the cheapest, best working makeup on the market to fill my makeup cubbies and keep my face (and my wallet) looking absolutely stunning!
It is my promise to my readers that I will never accept any financial compensation whatsoever for a product review. If a product is ever sent to me for free, I will give my honest opinion, even if it is a negative one, on the product I have received. If I have received a product for free to review the fact that I received it in PR will be posted at the top of the review, in plain English and bold text so that you can have all the facts before you begin reading the review.
I absolutely hate how greedy beauty influencers have become, and I hate the idea of lying to my audience for any reason whatsoever. If you ever have a question or need clarification regarding a review please feel free to comment on the post or tweet at me and I will happily respond and amend the post to clear up any future confusion.
At the end of the day, I am here to help you find the best makeup and skin care products for the best price on the market, and offer you 100% honest reviews on the products that I try out. This is a hobby, and I do not intend to make any real money out of this blog other than the google ads that should only be view-able in the sidebar when you read a post.

Affordable Liquid Lipsticks | What is the Best Liquid Lipstick on the Market?
Liquid lipsticks and mineral makeup are some of the biggest new trends to hit the makeup world in recent years. With their growing popularity, tons of mainstream and indie brands have added their formulas to the market. But which brands are worth investing tons of cash into to buy their entire lines, and which ones will leave your face and lips drier than than a desert?
Besides the fact that these types of makeup can be expensive. (Most liquid lipsticks run around $15 per tube!) Not all liquid lipstick formulas are created equal. Some liquid lipsticks are creamy but can wipe off throughout the day. Others will stay on for 10+ hours, but leave your lips broken and bleeding. Which formula is right for you?

Best Makeup Online | Where to Buy the Best Cosmetics Online?
With Indie brands becoming more mainstream, it is easy for anyone out in the world to start their own makeup brand if they want to. With the rise of brands such as Dose of Colors, we have seen indie makeup done right, and we have also seen indie makeup done horribly wrong. (Kuckian Cosmetics anyone?)
When buying makeup online, you always run the risk of getting: 1.) A product that is not (strictly speaking) safe.; 2.) Getting a knock off or fake product.; or 3.) Having your information stolen by hackers. So which websites are safe to shop from, and which ones should you avoid?
While I can’t speak for every shop out there on the internet, what I can do is tell you my experiences when purchasing from them. Did the products arrive in a timely manner? Did I feel safe purchasing? Did anything happen with my account after? Were the products worth the price? If you are interested in makeup brand reviews then you have come to the right place!
