I have been eagerly awaiting this indie brand’s launch ever since May and it finally opened for business on September 28th! Colourtory Cosmetics is proudly Latina-owned and the wait was certainly worth it as the product pictures were released. Everything is super affordable and the packaging is playful and adorable.

Happy Birthday… to Me!

It’s been a year since I started my makeup journey and it has been exhilarating to learn about the beauty industry. I officially started this blog on May 23rd, 2018 on Blogspot before switching to WordPress and I am thankful for each of you who read this blog or support me on social media. My original site had almost 13,000 views before I shut it down and this site is almost at 1,000; I’ve been dealing with a lot in my personal life and I haven’t posted as much as I’d like but I will get better.

Happy Six Months!

So this post is a couple days late, but it has been six months since The Trendy Wallet was created! I began writing and posting on May 23 and it has been so much fun and a lot of work, but the response from my readers is always encouraging.

I wanted to create a blog that specifically focused on indie and drugstore brands because I read other beauty blogs that talked more about “high-end” or luxury brands more often and to spice up their content, a post would be done for drugstore. The Trendy Wallet is changing this view and I hope that this blog has helped you discover new (and affordable) brands that save you some coins. There is a brand index included to guide you towards indie brands and it is constantly updated as I discover and try brands.
I’d love to hear from you, whether it’s constructive criticism, suggestions, etc. I have a few articles left for November before I rev things into high gear for December. Subscribe and share this blog with anyone who has an interest in makeup.

Heres to another six months!
