Where to Shop: Cherry Culture

I recently discovered Cherry Culture – an online retailer that sells cosmetics that are different. Now, these may be products that you’ve just read about in magazines or seen other people carrying, but dear readers, you too can get your hands on the unique lip glosses, blushes, and nail polishes as well. To begin: YES, […]

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today’s my birthday! What did I get for my birthday, you ask? For the past few years, every year around my birthday I get a new perfume. I don’t know how it started or why, but I like the concept of every year having a particular scent associated with it. It all started when I […]

Conair Hair Straightener

Remember L’Oreal Fashion Week? Well, another one of the goodies that I received in a goody bag was a Conair Hair Straightener! Now, I have curly hair and for the most part I’m happy with it – I just feel that it suits my personality and I like it the way that it is. Still, […]

Jennifer Lopez

I came across this picture of Jennifer Lopez and had to post it. Her hair and makeup look flawless (and yes, there are times when it doesn’t). She’s wearing false lashes, of course, but what I love is that her eye is smoky but not. There’s definitely a lot of drama going on there, with […]

Lush Tramp

The thing I love about Lush Cosmetics is that they really listen to their customers. No, that doesn’t mean that you fill out a survey and get a message saying “Thank you for your time!” What that means is that if enough customers want something, they’ll get it. Case in point: Tramp Shower Gel. It […]

Lancome Miracle Forever

Lancome’s Miracle Forever was only added to the Lancome line of perfumes this year. Though I’ve heard that the perfume was meant to appeal to a younger audience, I found no sweetness or ephemeral citrus notes that are usually found in those scents. Miracle Forever has a peppery note that’s a bit of a bite […]

Olay Radiance Ribbons Body Wash

I’ve mentioned that I love the Olay Body Wash with Body Butter Ribbons, so when a new version came out – with Radiance Ribbons – I had to try it. This version may just be a little more moisturizing than the other. It’s hard to tell when they’re both leave your skin so soft. This […]

Estee Lauder Heritage CollectionThere’s a special new collection over at Estee Lauder counters at Holt Renfrew locations world-wide. Called Heritage, the collection was designed by Aerin Lauder and inspired by Estee Lauder herself. Including compacts, soaps, face glow, lipsticks, perfume, and a hairbrush, the products were modeled after actual items on Lauder’s own dresser. The […]

The Bomb

At fashion week, one of the goodies that some of us picked up was a tin of Soysilk “The Bomb” Intense Moisturizer. This product is sold at The Soya Boutique, a site that sells soy-based products. The moisturizer has a petroleum jelly-like consistency but is very easy to spread and absorbs quickly. This means that […]
