Spell and the Gypsy Collective Folk Song Tunic

Sephora is blessing us with 20% off all foundations (including BB & CC creams), so it’s a good time to stock up. I don’t think I have seen a sale notification that had me checking out this fast in a long time. The beauty deal we all need for fall is here. Advertisements…

Here is my un-sponsored Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Advanced Clean Dry…

The Best Semi-permanent Hair Color

dpHUE Gloss+ Semi-permanent Hair Color and Deep Conditioner

For a multitude of reasons, I spent the better half of the season coloring my hair myself. I have had grey hair since my pre-teen years and need a root job every 4-6 weeks. My DIY dye job was fine enough, but my blonde balyage was in need. There was absolutely no chance I would attempt to highlight my own hair, so I researched alternatives. That is how I happened upon the best semi-permanent hair color.…

3 Supergoop Products I Am Buying With Their Best Discount Ever

I recently tried some Supergoop products, and they left me wanting more. There is no worse summer beauty blunder for this brown girl than realizing that my sunscreen has left me looking like I was sprayed with baby powder. Most of the time, if it’s white on my skin when applied, it turns my complexion grey. Even worse, some turn flakey. Ash city. I was excited to see that they are running a 20% off code, SUMMER20, that works on…
