Nothing to disclose December always feels like a month where you’re nearing “the end” and heading into a fresh start in January. So it felt appropriate to use up so many of my products last month! Lots of skin/hair care products, but I’ve added a new sort of category here. Vitamins. I am evolving BeautyJudy …

My Year in Favorites!

Beautyjudy.com favorites of 2017

Disclosure: Some prior PR samples, see bottom. As I considered how to approach a “favorites” post for 2017, I thought about how I’d done it in years past, but decided I didn’t want to gather up all my favorite lippies, nail polishes etc. I wanted to be specific. I thought…why not challenge myself to come …

October Empties!

October empties on beautyjudy

Disclaimer: One prior PR sample, see bottom of post. It feels good to be back to blogging! I ended up on a small, two-week hiatus that I hadn’t intended on – blogging is not my full time or an income-generating side hustle for me at the moment, so it took a serious backseat as life …

Milani Prep + Set + Glow Illuminating translucent powder

Nothing to disclose. There is much makeup I love, but right now, none as much as I love these products! Welcome to my Five Faves for October. Technically these are just my five faves right meow.

Senna Cosmetics The Makeup Show NYC BeautyJudy

At The Makeup Show NYC a couple weeks ago, I spent a good amount of time in sessions and chatting with creative directors, makeup artists and brand reps, so this will be a briefer show roundup than usual as I’ve got more focused coverage coming of brands like Mehron and Veil Cosmetics. I definitely think …

L’Oreal Infallible Paints in Taupeless

L'Oreal Infallible Paints in Taupeless swatches on Beautyjudy

Disclaimer: I bought this. I can’t help myself, when I see a new line of lippies, I feel like I need to try at least one. So when I happened upon a display of L’Oreal Infallible Paints, I looked for one that didn’t look like one of the 89745984327509134256279854 other lippies I have at home …

Happy National Lipstick Day!

Kryolan Lipstick Maat ch-br0180

Disclaimer: Some PR samples. See bottom. I’m obsessed with lippies – possibly more than nail polish. So I could not let National Lipstick Day pass me by! I skipped a couple hours of sleep last night in between baby feedings to share with you collages of some of my favorite lips of the day from the …

Favorite nail polishes I blogged about in 2014

OPI Coca-Cola My Signature is "DC" nail polish

Disclaimer: Some press samples. See bottom. I love looking back at all the nail polish I wore and reviewed at the end of each year, and trying to decide what really, really made me flip out! I blog about polish because I love it, so getting to look through all those swatch photos at one time reminds me …
