This or That: Plum Cream Blush ft. Fenty Beauty & LYS Beauty

There are so many cream blushes releasing this year! Today, I thought we'd take a look at two plum-hued cream blushes and critically compare the two.

Learn how to make more critical comparisons between two products when you're choosing between two options, whether you're in decluttering mode or...

Highlighters Over $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Highlighters Over $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

While a quieter year for highlighters, there were still plenty of new (and new-to-me) shades that caught my eye.  Pat McGrath and Natasha Denona both released individual highlighters, but both brands could stand to have full ranges of highlighters/blushes in general.

 

I also tested out JD Glow's...

Bronzers | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Bronzers | 2020 Editor's Favorites

I was surprised to find that there were more bronzers reviewed in 2020 (43) than in 2019 (30), since the trend for 2020 has been a decrease in most product categories (at least for what I reviewed).

There were several notable releases this year, like NARS revamping the shade range and formulas for...

Highlighters Under $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Highlighters Under $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

After years of being inundated with highlighters, 2020 was a much "slower" year with respect to highlighter releases--just over 100 that I reviewed myself--so keeping this a short, edited list wasn't difficult at all. I've broken up my highlighter favorites by price, effectively more affordable...

Blushes Over $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

With just over 80 blushes that fit the criteria (over $15), there were lots of lovely shades and formulas to choose from, but I narrowed my list of favorites from my reviews this year to 15, which did include a few re-reviews that were rereleased this past year.

It's no surprise that several Fenty...

Blushes Under $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Blushes Under $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

If there's one type of product that I have more "room" to review... it would be cheek products. Brands release plenty of them, but compared to eyeshadow palettes and lip products, I can make a decent dent into the new releases (whereas with lip products, it feels like an avalanche).  In 2020, there...

Cheek Duos & Palettes | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Cheek Duos & Palettes | 2020 Editor's Favorites

This year, there were a lot less cheek duos, trios, and palettes that were released compared to 2019, and I'll be curious to see if that trend continues into 2021 or if it was one-off due all that made 2020... well, 2020!  I love a good duo or trio when they're offered in more than one colorway, as...

10 Copper Blushes I'd Wear This Summer

Putting together this list of high-quality, copper-themed blushes made it apparent that MAC might reign supreme when it comes to offering options.  Copper blush can add warmth to the skin while giving some reddish tinge that is often missing from some bronzing powder ranges (which can often run...
