True Story: I use to be the girl who would spend hours upon hours in Sephora testing every product, and then ended up walking out with only one tiny lipgloss (that probably cost me more than it should). Now that I live right across the street from Sephora, I’ve started to indulge in my old habits again. Rut roh.

With my beauty “experience” at Sephora, I know my makeup products really well. I constantly change up my beauty routine, because I get bored with doing the same thing for more than a month. And, since Spring is (kind of) here, it is time to swap out our winter products for lighter ones…….so I’m sharing my favorites if you are looking for something new and WORTH the money. One thing I’ve learned over the years is that not every product is worth the heavy price tag, and sometimes what we really end up paying for is the pretty box it sits in rather than the actual ingredients. Read below for my must-have recommendations that I would buy again and again and again………. -Alecia




So……. my Friday Favorites has changed (yet again), but still remains somewhat the same? Well, something like that. I decided to change it up, not make it so product based for you guys/gals. There is enough of that stuff floating around, and I want to talk about other important stuff……..you know like the Stephen Colbert news (I am still jumping for joy with that one)!!! I hope you don’t mind the switch up. I am trying to direct my focus and attention on things I really LIKE and want to share with you all. (eh em: this blog is called likes of us for a reason).

Hope you enjoy! And, have a great weekend!
