Drugstore Foundation Has Become More Inclusive. Too Bad Drugstore Shelves Haven't.






Hey, lovelies!



I sign up for email newsletters from my favorite beauty and style magazines to keep up with the latest trends. I recently clicked on one from Allure. In one of their newsletters, they highlight a post about the 18 Best Drugstore Foundations for All Your Coverage Needs.

The Flip Side of the #DisruptAging Movement in the Beauty Industry






Hey Lovelies!


"It's been a long time. I shouldn't have left you without a blog post to inspire you." Okay, enough of my Aaliyah and Timbaland moment. I've been wanting to write about the "Disrupt Aging", "Stop saying for her age", etc., campaigns that have been popular since the summer of 2018. I do get the sentiment behind it. I understand how telling someone they look good for [add a qualifier here] feels like a non-compliment. However, this poses a new set of problems for women age 35 and over in the beauty industry that we are not checking for: The erasure of older women in the beauty industry -- both consumer-wise and spokesperson-wise.

Walgreens' Balance Rewards Program Changed This November and Is Nothing Special Anymore






Hy lovelies!

My health issues have kept me from blogging but something has stirred up the blogger in me that I wanted to share with you all. If you have been following my blogs about saving while shopping you will notice I bring up Walgreens' Balance Rewards Program often. There was a very good reason for this. I truly felt it was the better of the programs for online shopping, not in-store. Unfortunately, on November 4, 2018, Walgreens changed their policy across the board for redeeming your points.

Review of Ardell Magnetic Lashes Double Demi Wispies






Happy Day, lovelies!

This month I am dedicating to false eyelashes. This year I took the plunge and gave in to the false eyelash. My first experience was with false magnetic lashes because I had to take some time to search for lash adhesive/glue that would work and be gentle with my skin. My best friend knew I was trying our magnetic lashes so she got a pair of Ardell Magentic Lashes Double Demi Wispies.

UNPOPULAR OPINION: Rihanna's British Vogue Cover Does Create a Beauty Double Standard for Latinas







Hey lovelies,


I am here with another unpopular opinion about a recent beauty/fashion-related controversy on social media. Remember my unpopular stance about the Marc Jacobs spread in InStyle last year? This time my unpopular opinion involves two style mags and again it deals with cultural double standards. Yes, dammit! So, British Vogue has Rihanna on the cover sporting pencil-thin, drawn on brows. This has caused an issue with our Latina -- specifically Mexican-American -- sisters. This black chick agrees with their issue concerning these brows.
