Milani Baked Bronzer Review and Swatches 14

Beauty recessionistas gather round because you’re going to want to go wild on the new Milani Baked Bronzer that should be popping up at your local drugstores shortly or maybe already have.

Check it.

Milani has three shades of its new Baked Bronzer available at the moment and it is such a hardcore dupe for Urban Decay Glided Baked Bronzer plus hello half the price. Loves that hard.

Back to School

August 11th peeps that means we are nearly half way through the month and you, if you’re in high school or college, have probably already started shopping for your return to class.

Yay….heavy sarcasm on the yay there because most of you are probably groaning and dragging your butts to Target, Staples, and Walmart whining all the way. Sucks going back after all that time off doesn’t it? But hey embrace it! It’s the best time of the year to experience new beauty, skincare, cosmetics, and other bits and bobs.

Since I happened to be a broke as smoke college student at one time in my life I thought I’d do a Back to School Beauty and Cosmetic Budget Pick Series which highlights some great buys that won’t burst your bank account. I’ll be spotlighting cosmetics, skincare, and other fab little finds for those of you heading Back to School!

Noddin’ my head like yeah, Moving my hips like yeah, And I got my hands up, They’re playin my song, I know I’m gonna be ok Yeah, It’s a party in the USA, Yeah, It’s a party in the USA!

Oh god. Someone stop me please.

Miley Cyrus was on Graham Norton and I was flipping through it this morning now I can’t get the damn song out of my head. Ugh. I wanted to see Jack Whitehall but bloody Miley kept getting in the way grrrr!

Anyway.

That was so off the topic of makeup right?
