You guys, it’s as official as it’s going to get – the Painted Ladies beauty blog is 10 years old. I typically claim the month of August as the official anniversary, because that’s when the actual site went live, but there was stuff going on in an unofficial wordpress site before that.
So much has changed in the beauty world since I first hit the “publish” button. So much! And it’s been an incredibly fascinating ride. I’ll put together a separate anniversary post because it’s definitely a momentous occasion. And before that, thank you all for being here. Thank you.
One thing that’s changed with blogging over the last several months is the amount of product sent to me by beauty brands for editorial coverage. I’ve fallen off of so many PR lists and, to be honest, it’s kind of a relief. While I don’t have as many products to cover, I’m happier about the content I’m creating! Here’s a look at the products I really enjoyed in July 2019.
Girlactik Luminous Face Powder is lovely when I apply it in the most unconventional way.
Skincare I’m obsessed with.
Here’s the before and after on the NuFACE FIX Line Smoothing Device – long story short, I’m so glad I invested in this skincare product.
The ColourPop Uh-Huh Honey Pressed Shadow Palette is yet another favorite!
The Lisa Eldridge Insanely Saturated Lip Color in Skyscraper Rose is so worthy of its luxury price tag.
Having heard so many good things about the brand, I’m so glad I ordered the Melt Cosmetics Impulsive Pressed Shadow Palette.
I gave the Natasha Denona Mini Bronze & Glow Cheek Duo a “meh” rating, but to be honest I’m using it every single day.
The Wet n Wild PAC-MAN Game Over Color Palette offers colorful shadows, without any chalkiness!
