Wannabe Holiday Spirit

I can’t help but to get excited over the holidays. Halloween (if you celebrate it), Thanksgiving (for my fellow Americans), and Christmas. Since entering the realm of all things beauty, I have come to enjoy the new collections and products that pop up during each season. Brands are starting to either release or tease their…

Slowly Getting There

September is almost over and the holidays are creeping ever closer. This week seemed like brands were slowing down a bit as there were fewer releases. But you know with the holidays rapidly approaching, brands are putting the finishing touches on their holiday glam (like the rumored “Royal Affair” from BH Cosmetics). For now let’s…

I’m a Glitter Girl

In a glitter world! I know that I made up those lyrics to the “Barbie Girl” song but I think it applies here. Glitter has a way of making people feel better (at least for me it does). Unfortunately, I can’t use as much glitter as I’d like because my two-year-old son runs throughout the…

My Favorite Beauty Youtubers

We all like to watch Youtube videos. Some people flock to the gaming section while others rush to watch beauty videos. If you are like me and watch beauty influencers, you likely have a favorite. However, I prefer to watch the Youtubers/influencers who don’t shy away from giving truly honest reviews on products. These Youtubers…

The Fascination with Disney

Just admit it. You have seen at least one Disney movie in your life, whether it’s one of the “old-school” movies or the newer generation. Growing up in the 90’s meant I watched The Lion King, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Beauty and the Beast, etc. Of course you can’t forget the original movies that launched the Disney…

Dupe It Up: Makeup Revolution edition

Welcome back to the dupe series where we look at drugstore/indie brand products that bear a striking resemblance to high-end brands. Makeup Revolution is frequently mentioned here, but we don’t discuss their dupes because the brand became decidedly more creative and listening to their consumers in order to create more original products. Included in this…

Lippies, Collections, and Palettes, Oh My!

These indie and drugstore brands are pumping out these new releases like crazy… But I love it! The latest trend in the beauty industry are liquid eyeshadows,  which are either a hit or a miss depending on the brand. I feel like I am one of the few beauty bloggers who loves the idea of…

Musically-Inclined Makeup

Two things I love have been joined together by Makeup Revolution. If you didn’t know, Makeup Revolution is essentially made up of four “brands”; I Heart Revolution, Revolution, Obsession, and Revolution Pro. Of the four, I Heart Revolution has steadily released products throughout the summer, mainly their bestselling Chocolate Palettes. This time the brand collaborated…

Dupe It Up: Shop Hush edition

This is a new series in which we’ll be looking at dupes of popular brands/products. I know some people don’t agree with dupes but let’s face it, you save money when you buy a dupe and sometimes get better quality. The fourth article ever published on The Trendy Wallet covered a few dupes from the…

Another Day, Another Collaboration

All of these collaborations are too much. There, I said it. I love seeing smaller influencers gain exposure but goodness gracious! There has been so many collaborations within the past few months and I’m tired of seeing influencers create similar looking eyeshadow palettes and highlighters. Give me variety! Show me a unique concept! Is it…
