UD x Gwen Stefani

Through a collab between Gwen Stefani and Urban Decay, was born this beautiful palette. Now, this is not really what I would expect from the daring Gwen Stefani.

Out With the Old, In With the New: Beauty Blender Edition

I always like trying new tools and products, so I have to really adore a product to repurchase it.  When my first Beautyblender sponge wore out, I knew that I couldn’t go on without replacing it (a tad dramatic, I know).  The Original Beautyblender sponge is designed to be used damp or dry, to seamlessly apply and blend your […]
