About Me

The Beauty Geek is a blog dedicated to trying and testing out beauty products. I titled my blog "Recessionally Chic" because in this recession, we have no excuse not to continue to look our best even if our funds limit us.

My name is Sidra and I am based in Los Angeles, CA, so the products you will find reviewed here are all generally available in the United States.

I have tried many beauty products over the years, many at the suggestion of my friends and many out of curiosity.  I always questioned whether drugstore brands could be as long-lasting and effective as specialty store counterparts.  I generally stuck to specialty brand products, until my funds were getting low (thank you, recession) and I was forced to try drugstore brands.  I was shocked to see many great quality products at the drugstore, and was equally as surprised to find some awful ones.

This blog details my personal opinions on products.  I am not a professional who works in the beauty industry and I don't claim to be.  The views expressed here are my own.  I am not endorsed by any company.  If you have acne or skin problems that are too persistent, I certainly suggest visiting a Dermatologist for advice.

I write product reviews for fun and to share my opinions with others.  Some girls live for fashion, I live for great beauty products. 

I personally purchase or have purchased these products to write or review, so I am not compensated to endorse one product over another.  If you want to send me products to review or sample, I'm open to it! :p
