Kariderm – Shea Butter for Your Hair

I have a love/hate relationships with natural shampoos and conditioners.  I like that they’re supposed to be good for your hair – soapless, silicone-free, natural ingredients, even good for the environment – but they just don’t feel like they’re cleaning my hair the way that other shampoos do and I really like my hair to […]

The problem with most matte full coverage foundations is that they look obvious on your skin, sometimes even magnifying skin imperfections and texture instead of making skin look smooth.  It’s also difficult to make them look natural because real skin reflects light and matte foundation doesn’t in the slightest. Make Up For Ever’s Matte Velvet […]

Fragrance Review: Byredo Super Cedar

It’s always always a good sign when you’re wearing a perfume, and you get asked what IS that.  The first time this happened to me when I was wearing Byredo’s Super Cedar, I immediately wondered if I had put too much on.  One spray doesn’t seem like much especially when you’re going to be out […]

It Cosmetics Superhero Liner and Mascara

It’s actually fairly difficult to find an inky black eyeliner and mascara that match, last, and are the blackest black that’s out there.  Bonus points for me if the black and a tiny bit of blue in it so that it brings out the brown of my eyes. Now I can stop looking for that […]
