Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

My lip collection isn’t too big and there’s a very good reason for it. I don’t wear too many different shades! As you’ll be able to see from my swatches, I either go dark and sultry or extremely nude. I don’t have much of an in between. My everyday go-to lip color is of course the nudes. I only break out the dark or red shades for special events! My current favorite right now is this NYX Lip Lingerie in the shade Push-Up. They have a great formula and I’m planning on getting some more shades here soon.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

Too Faced.JPG

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Let’s talk about cult favorite Too Faced Born This Way Foundation because it receives non-stop hype all over the internet. This foundation is a medium coverage very natural looking foundation, not too matte and not too dewy. I’ve been using this foundation for the past year or so now and I will NEVER go back. It’s often rare that I try an overly hyped product and actually like it. This foundation is amazing and I love the way it makes my skin look.

My skin type is more normal/combination and this foundation does a great job not looking greasy in my T-zone and not clinging to my dry patches in other areas. I’m also a very freckled lady so I love that this foundation still let’s my skin look natural with the freckles peeking through. I hate complete full coverage foundations because my whole body is covered in freckles and then it just makes my face look like someone stole a porcelain doll’s head and plucked it on my body. So mismatched. This foundation, however, makes my skin look natural and you can’t notice any difference between my face and the rest of my body. Love that! For me, a beauty blender is the ONLY way to apply this foundation. The beauty blender just makes this foundation look all the more natural.

I’ve repurchased this foundation multiple times, I think I’m only on my third or fourth bottle. (Not too bad for the last year or so!) Until something new and breathtaking hits the market, I’m sure I’ll be using this for years to come! If you’re looking for a natural foundation and have a similar skin type to mine, I very much recommend this product.

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Take a sneak peek into my bathroom with this post on how I keep all my beauty items stored and organized! I’m not any kind of crazy beauty fanatic and I don’t think I own stupid amounts of makeup but I do have quite the collection. A couple years ago is when I finally decided to get myself an upgrade from the old drawer of unorganized makeup I usually kept my things in (and I’m so glad I did). I picked up three pieces that have significantly changed to way I function on a day to day basis and improved the care that I keep with my products.

I purchased all three of these acrylic organizers from Amazon, because Amazon has EVERYTHING. They were the perfect size, price, and I like how they are clear so I can see everything inside. I’ll be sure to link the cotton swab holder, makeup brush organizer, and the 3 drawer system here. They’re easy to clean and perfect for my small collection.

Getting the 3 drawer system for the bulk of my makeup was a necessity and it allows me to have a concrete system in the morning. Before these organizers, I would shuffle around in my drawer for a good minute or two to find what I needed but now I work drawer to drawer with everything easily accessible. Even if you aren’t a makeup junkie, I highly recommend picking up this item to organize your beauty items (or any other smaller things around your home). This particular drawer set is offered in so many color selections, both solid and transparent, that you’re bound to find one you like.

Leave me a comment below and let me know how you organize your makeup stash at home!

How Expensive Is My Face?

How Expensive Is My Face.JPG

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

For those who may not have seen this post before you may be a little weirded out. This post basically sums up all of the makeup I put on my face every morning and takes tally of how expensive each of those products are. I haven’t myself run the numbers yet and I’m a bit scared to find out how much this total comes to! Stick around and find out!

Nivea’s Sensitive Post Shave Balm – $6.49

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation – $39

NYX HD Concealer – $4.99

RCMA – $12

NYX Eyebrow Pencil – $9.99

Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette – $36

Wet N Wild Mascara – $4.29

Wet N Wild Contour & Highlighting Palette – $4.99

NYC Contour Powder – $4.99

Wet N Wild Color Icon Blush – $2.99

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray – $31

Tarte Lippie – $20

Which comes to a total of $176.73 and excuse me while I go vomit (because I’m dramatic). That’s a disturbingly high number for my face makeup! That’s not even including the large array of brushes in my arsenal. Yikes! Too bad I’m in love with all these products and refuse to give them up. I hope you all enjoyed this fun post and comment below if you have done this so I can be sure to check it out for myself!

Wet N’ Wild Max VOLUME PLUS Mascara Review

wet-n-wild-mascara-reviewwedding-day-hairimg_9171Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

If you’re a makeup junkie or maybe just very particular about your makeup, you know that a mascara can make or break your look. If you accidentally pick up a bad mascara it can be very frustrating to try and take it off, as it’s normally the last step of your eye makeup. I’ve tested quite a few mascaras and can definitely say that I’m picky when it comes to the formulas. Before I started my transition into buying cruelty free products, my favorite mascara was hands down the L’Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black. After I switched from that I spent a few months bouncing back and forth between mascaras trying to find the right fit but I found my new love in this one!

The Wet N’ Wild Max VOLUME PLUS Mascara has quickly become my ultimate mascara. I would be lost if they ever decided to discontinue it. It doesn’t clump up when layering and does exactly what the name lets on, adds volume plus length. I love this mascara! I used this on my wedding day and every day since! I’m now on my second tube of this, which shows just how much I love this. It’s the most natural looking mascara I’ve ever used!

If you’re in the market for a new mascara, I would definitely recommend trying this bad boy out. Since its Wet N’ Wild, you know that the price is just right! I’m not sure why this isn’t hyped up more often but I love it! Leave a comment below and let me know what your favorite cruelty free mascara is!
