an update

I'm not one to really disclose my personal affairs, since I've always wanted this blog to be about makeup and all the happy and pretty things…but given the lack of quality posts, I figure I'd give a bit of an explanation. 

Within the past few months I've been dealing with health issues, not to mention with the stress of moving…along with ending my older apartment with my ex. I came to terms with me and my ex being two different people, which is totally okay. One of the things I found annoying is he felt need to make snide remarks on my makeup hobby/habits. I won't get into the details, except that they weren't positive comments. At this point it doesn't matter anymore. I no longer talk to him, we never cross paths, and we live far away from one another. It's better for the both of us. 

I've been fortunate to not let his comments affect me personally. Although when you live with the person, there's no real moment of being alone...being lost in your own thoughts to think about the things you really enjoy. All of which resulted in the lack of consistent / quality posts. I'm just glad I'm physically living in a place that's more positive for me. 

As for my health, it's a work in progress since it's been a constant issue due to many factors. It's getting better. There's no need to discuss specifics on it.

I've been wanting to take a break from blogging since there are some other changes that I want to make, and in order for that to happen, I need to prioritize how I spend my time. I've been watching less YouTube videos and not reading as many blogs. I do love makeup, but I also want to improve on myself and hopefully the changes that I want to happen will occur sooner than later.

As for those who have any questions regarding a certain makeup/skincare item, please feel free to email me at 

hopefully I'll be back to blogging on a more consistent basis in the near future. Until then, feel free to drop a comment/email. :)

Swatches of By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge Lipstick

Hi all!

It's been a while since I last did a blog post. I've been busy in my personal life and I probably won't be blogging as often since I'm trying to focus my energy on trying to make some positive changes.

So I wanted to do swatches on my arm, but the counter manager didn't want me to make a mess on my arm, so she did them on a piece of paper.

I like the sheer rouge lipstick, but I still prefer the Terrybly formula (I just like the look of a full-on opaque lipstick).

So here they are:
