My Makeup Today

A bit old-school with today’s post, as it features a list of what I used today. Aveeno sunscreen.  It’s just SPF 15 but perfect since I’m going to be spending much of the day indoors. I know that it says for the body on it, but I think it’ll be fine for my face too […]

Fragrance Friday: Chanel Coco Mademoiselle

Here are pictures of my own bottle of Coco Mademoiselle. The seal is difficult to break – not because it’s uber-secure but because you know that it was put on in some workshop at Chanel Headquarters.   I did finally end up breaking the seal – but only because I know that Chanel never discontinues […]

CoverGirl Lash Blast

Here’s a picture of the wand that makes Cover Girl’s mascara, Lash Blast, so intriguing. It seems to use the same spiky bristles as the newest mascaras but the wand is huge! The small wand you see on the left is the one for Volume Exact. See how much smaller it is? I usually don’t […]

New Make Up For Ever Artist Pencil

Little known fact: cosmetics are regulated so that they’re safe for use on the part of your face they’re for.  The tightest regulations are for eye products – which means that anything deemed safe for use on the eye area, is safe for the rest of your face too. I mention this because Make Up […]

Graydon The Putty

I know I have so many sunscreen reviews on here, but um, guess what?  I still got a sunburn this summer, and it was not pretty!  The worst part of the sunburn is the flaking itching skin that I just can’t seem to keep my hands off. Thankfully, a friend gave me The Putty by […]

Guys, this summer has been the year that haircare brands are jumping on the air dry bandwagon, and for those of us with curly frizzy hair that doesn’t like being straightened when there’s so much humidity in the air, it’s about time.  I mean, air drying your hair isn’t a new thing, but I love […]
