Two Not-So-Broke Girls In Search of World’s Most Perfect Un-aging Skin and Grumpiest Cat
- We got 99 problems and spending-money-on-experimental-beauty-products ain’t one. We have been great pals since the financial crisis (not related to the financial crisis) and started this blog in summer 2014. We don’t compete on any level, except for Miss Roxy‘s affeckshuns.
- Angela is a lawyer in Washington, DC
- Renee is in finance in New York, NY
- We love anthropomorphic kitties and beauty products. We have combined our passion for cosmetics and cats into one obsessive blog.
- We also post
obsessivelyregularly on Instagram at @beautyandthecat.
- Roxy the kitty is a beauty consultant. She does not approve of animal testing (and neither does Angela) unless it’s her perfect shade of fuchsia or ruby red lipstick. Find Roxy on Instagram at @indoor_cat.
- We have pretty darn good skin and make up.
- We have experience in the beauty industry (beauty pageants, salon ownership, experimenting on our passed-out friends, etc.).
- We have gotten hit on by at least several homeless men.
- Angela has dry, dehydrated skin and is a MAC NC15/Korean cushion shade #21 (normal skin and NC20/#23 in the summer). She uses a Curology prescription of 0.09% tretinoin, 1% clindamycin, and 5% azelaic acid to control acne and stave off the ravages of time.
- Renee has combination skin. Her shade is Chanel 40Beige/NC35/Sephora Color IQ2Y08/Fitzpatrick scale Type IV/off the charts in Korean cushions. She is allergic to chemical sunscreens and about 35+ other ingredients. She’s also peppered with freckles. She once got a pimple.
