2 April, 2015

Kat-Von-D-Studded-Kiss-Lipstick-in-Gothica,-Thin-Lizzy,-Adora-1

So back in 2014, Kat Von D released newly formulate lipsticks in the form of the Studded Kiss Lipstick.  Of course, at that time, the blogosphere was abuzz!  These lipsticks were supposed to be awesome.  More awesome than the original Foiled Love Lipstick, which apart from their tacky packaging, were really good.  So yeah, expectations and hopes for the Studded Kiss Lipstick was high…perhaps too high!

All-Day-Luminous-Weightless-Foundation-1

 

So a while back I told you about the newly released All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation from NARS.  From the rumblings in the blogging community, it seemed like this foundation could be a game changer and I was eager to get my hands on it to see if it lived up to all the hype I was hearing.  Because as much as I love NARS, and I really, really love NARS, how good could this foundation really be?  Well, you better take a seat, because the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is better than anything you have tried before.

Now one thing people may or may not know about me is that I don’t take my hair care regimen too seriously.  I mean, once upon a time, I treated it like it was a battle that required strategic planning.  This was back before that time I cut off all my hair that one time.  Ever since then, while I still care and take pride in my hair, I no longer treat my hair care routine as a life and death matter.  Gone are the days for long and complicated hair styling, in favour of quick, easy and natural.  Now that I wear my hair curly as opposed to straight, my main concern is to make sure that my curls are mositurized and defined without being greasy and that is where Simon & Tom™ Moroccan Treatment comes in.

Mary-Kay-Limited-Edition-Mineral-Eye-Color-Quads

So back last month, I told you about some new limited edition releases from Mary Kay as part of their winter collection.  What I didn’t tell you was that I already had said products in my hot little hands!  Sneaky, I know, but that’s how I roll.  But have no fear, my sneakiness has another purpose other than me just not wanting to share.  No, in this case my sneakiness means I was testing!  Extensively testing actually.  Why was I testing so much?  Well I have never used Mary Kay products before.  Like ever!  But, I am happy to announce that after testing these Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color Quad’s, I will certainly be taking a much closer look at all things Mary Kay!   Continue Reading
