OPI’s Nail Envy Line Expands

Benefit’s “They’re Real” Line Grows

So I’m a huge fan of Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara, and They’re Real Push-up Liner, despite hearing/reading somewhere that the Push-Up Liner is one of their most-returned products because people don’t get it.

British beauty brand Soap and Glory comes out with two new cleansers this summer: Peaches and Cream Cleansing Milk, and Face Soap and Clarity.

Dior’s Cool New Brow Gel

If you’re into doing your brows (and really… most of us should be), you’ll know that if you’re in a hurry it can be a time suck to fill them in and then apply a wax or gel on top.  It’s the right way to do your brows, but you’re not thinking of that when you’re […]

Natural Bug Spray from Modern Apothecary

The inclusion of kids into your life is enough to make you go natural with so many products, and today we tackle bug spray. If I were going into the Amazon forest I wouldn’t think twice about using DEET on my whole family, but I’m not as keen to use it for a picnic in the […]
