The Leaves Are Falling
Things that are the same: I'm still alive. I still love makeup. I still miss my family.  Things that are different: I have a new job. I have a son. I moved again.  But the bottom line is: Leaves. If there is one category I'm buried in regret, it is leaves. ...

Lips: MAC's Lipstick in "Leading Lady Red" (LE) [MAC x Charlotte Olympia 2016]
PURCHASED I thought that, with regards to my beauty reviews, I'd reel myself back in starting with the most recent MAC collection and working my way backwards, throwing in reviews of permanent products and other brands in between. That brings us to the MAC ...

The IceBlock [26]: Dreams & Loss
What I wanted to say, I can't really say anymore, because the post published right before this one was completed yesterday. I guess what I can say is: this IceBlock post is the first full post that I'm writing after finally moving to California. Yup, after ...

The IceBlock [25]: The Big ED
I remember once, in passing, how I read that every long distance relationship has that one ultimate goal: the end date. That is to say, we that put ourselves in this unnecessary position all aim towards that rough estimate in time where we aim to close the ...

Lips: MAC's Lipstick in "Forbidden Sunrise" (LE) [MAC x Bao Bao Wan 2015)
PURCHASED I figured, why not just finish with the matte lipsticks? "Forbidden Sunrise" is the third and last of the matte lipsticks from MAC's Bao Bao Wan collection,  the lustre being left to review. I'm sure I've mentioned before that I don't like orange ...

Lips: MAC's Lipstick in "Lavender Jade" (LE) [Bao Bao Wan 2015] + A Comparison
PURCHASED Next, I've decided to review "Lavender Jade." Purple used to be my favorite color. I guess I'm glad it isn't anymore, because there is just something about limited edition purples from MAC that make them highly coveted - these lavenders especially...
