Taking requests

Just a quickie update everyone- It’s only been a pretty short time since I started blogging, so it’s a huge frickin’ deal to me to see that I already have some followers and people that comment! So I thought now would be as good a time as any to point out that I would love […]

Don’t waste your products – depot them instead.

Remember a few days ago when I jokingly (or so you thought) said I’d crack open my NARS eye primer to get out every last drop? Well after a frustrating amount of time fishing around in the tube for product I decided to finally do it. I’ve seen a few people do the same thing […]

What’s up?

So I guess I should introduce myself. I’m Nicci. This is my brand-spankin’-new blog. So far the plan is for it to be mostly about makeup and skincare, but since it’s sort of half-beauty/half-personal, there’s really no telling what you’ll see here. I’m also interested in art and fashion, plus some crunchy granola things like […]
