Armani Code

Armani Code is my perfume of choice most days of the week these days.

LypSyl LypMoisturizer

The popular lip balm brand LypSyl now has a line of products that have honey in them! I’ve been using the LypSyl LypMoisturizer and love it. It’s definitely a good cure for very dry winter lips and the balm has a sweet smell but doesn’t taste like anything (yeah, I checked). This is now at […]

Estee Lauder Ultra Light Gloss

Estee Lauder introduced a new gloss as part of its spring collection – Ultra Light Gloss (shown in Sparkling Shell).

The head seems to be slightly smaller than the usual ones, but overall that seems to help the maneuverability. This has been at drugstores for quite some time, and is pretty much […]

Two Birds, One Stone

I’ve mentioned before that I’ve worked with PR companies and makeup companies before to either get my hands on products or to get the full information. Without fail, I receive absolutely no pressure to review products and they’re understanding if I don’t like something. The ones I have worked with are professional and leave me […]

Bella Il Fiore

And now we move from skin care to cosmetics. Lately I’ve been doing my makeup with this Bella Il Fiore palette. I am so thrilled with it, especially considering that I had never heard of the brand before and had only seen it sold at Henry Bendels. Of course, that is a good sign since […]

Slough off that skin

My love of all things moisturizing continues today, and I need to cover the importance of getting your hands on a good scrub and using it! You’ll find that scrubbing off dead skin will not only get rid of the dryness, but it’ll make your moisturizing much more effective. You’ll also find that many scrubs […]
