Want It Wednesday: Recent Beauty Buys

Happy Wednesday y'all! Today I'm switching things up a bit. Normally I post things I am lusting over, but today I'll be talking about a few things I've been dying to get my hands on and - guess what?! - I finally did!!

The other day I went into Sephora because I was out with a bare face and knew it would be the perfect time to swatch some things on my face. The first item that I grabbed is from the amazing Anastasia Beverly Hills collection, specifically her dipbrow pomade. 

This stuff is seriously amazing! I got "Dark Brown" because my hair color is still dark from the last dye job I had. The consistency of this product is great, it goes on really smooth and lasts ALL day. I was a bit nervous at first because I'm used to working with pencils, but when put in lightly with an angled brush you really have nothing to worry about. Plus this stuff is great for oily skin and the humidity, what more could you ask for?!

The other item that I bought, and have been quite curious about, is the beauty blender. 

In all honesty, I was a bit hesitant about purchasing this at first. While I had heard great things, I really wasn't sure what could make a funky shaped sponge so amazing. Let me tell you, I was wrong to second guess the greatness of this product for even a second! I used to use a stippling brush, and while it does wonders, I really don't think it compares to what the beautyblender has done for me. You use the sponge damp and use the same stippling effect as with a brush, but the payoff is amazing. I definitely need to invest in a better foundation, but in the meantime this makes a world of difference in how even and smooth my face makeup looks. Seriously, a must buy!


  1. I find it hard to use the beauty blender. Did it work for you ?


    1. It works really well for me, a lot better than I expected actually. I was afraid I just wasted $20 on a sponge but I find that everything applies a lot smoother and more evenly than with the stippling brush I was using. I still use a kabuki brush to put powder on and even everything out but I love it. What about it do you struggle with?
