Hello, beauties! Today I'm excited to introduce a brand I've never featured on The Beauty Milk before and it's Paul & Joe Beaute. I've been lusting (truly lusting) for Paul & Joe products for ages. The brand first appeared on my radar when they released their cat-shaped lipsticks and blushers (the images went viral on Tumblr). Sadly, since the cat lipsticks were limited edition, I have not been able to get my hands on them. I have, however, taken the opportunity to try a variety of products from Paul & Joe. I'm so happy with the products I have tried so far that I will slowly keep adding their products to my collection. In this post I'll be reviewing their Cheek Colour in Peaches'n'Cream. A round-up post featuring all the P&J products I own will come in the future.

Hi, lovelies! Today's Makeup of the Day (which is actually last week's makeup!) consists of my attempt at a flawless base. I was going to be running a few important errands that day so I wanted my skin to look its best. As soon as May began I started feeling the terribly humid island heat. I had been opting for really lightweight light-coverage foundations like the BECCA Luminous Skin Colour and Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. That day I chose my go-to foundation for special occasions (and sometimes for everyday too, depends on what I'm looking for). That is NARS Sheer Glow which, surprisingly, has never been reviewed on my blog but has been mentioned numerous times. I find Sheer Glow to be really long wearing and to have a solid medium coverage.

Q: Is there any beauty brand you dislike or hold a grudge against? Why? Did you experience bad customer service, do you disagree with their business ethics or do you simply think they make bad products?
My Answer: Without going into much details, I've always kinda had an aversion to Sigma. Not because their products are bad, but because of how they promote themselves and the way they started out as a company. I'm not too fond of MUA either because I haven't liked about 80% of the products I've tried from them. Thankfully, I've never received costumer service that was so bad that it has made me not want to purchase from the brand any further. Oh, also! I'm a bit peeved that the drugstore hair brand Organix entered the market (and used to advertise themselves) as Sulfate Free and is not anymore.

Hi, lovelies! Today I'm reviewing a product that has been reviewed countless times so I'm sorry if you're tired of hearing about it. :) Hopefully my post will provide a different insight because this is not going to be a rave review. I feel a bit bad saying that I don't like this product because it was kindly sent to me during a swap. However, I specifically asked her for a Rimmel Apocalips so it's not her fault at all (even if I hadn't asked for it, it still wouldn't be her fault that I didn't like it). Also, my issues with this product are not about it's quality per se. Now that that has been clarified, here are my thoughts on it...

MAC Mineralize Concealer - NC20 & NC30 ($20)
Hello, lovelies! Today I'll be reviewing a recent favorite concealer that I've been using nonstop for the past two months. Let me give you a backstory first. I was determined to get Benefit's Fake Up Concealer thanks to saleswoman extraordinaire Cassie (from Thrift Thick). I specifically wanted a very moisturizing concealers because my skin has been quite dry lately. I went to Sephora with hopes of buying Fake Up but they were out of the color Medium! :( As you know, Fake Up only comes in three colors so it's not the type of concealer where you can say "Oh, well. I'll just go one shade lighter." That day was one of those days when my mind was absolutely set and I needed a moisturizing concealer right away (I had a case of shopping frenzy). So I went over to MAC and got their Mineralize Concealer in NC30. It's exactly what I needed and I love it. Here's a more thorough review on it:
