Hypnose

I had never tried Lancome’s Hypnose but figured I should since a counter lady told me that it was one of their best-selling perfumes!

Quick Dry Top Coat Review

I’m often in a hurry when I put nail polish on so I thought I would pick up a quick-dry topcoat. I knew that I didn’t want something that was thick and only meant to make my nails shiny. I wanted something watery that would actually protect the top layer of my nail polish so […]

2007 VMA Pictures – the Makeup Edition

In case you missed it (hey, I almost did!) the MTV Video Music Awards were last night. These awards are always super-hyped due to the performances that they feature, and last night was no exception. Britney performed but you sure won’t be seeing a picture of her here. Instead, I pulled some pictures of the […]

Estee Lauder Double Wear Eyeshadow Base Review

Back when Estee Lauder Double Wear products were released, I was completely taken in by their powder foundation. It stayed on and absorbed oil so well – plus I found a perfect match for my skin. The Double Wear Foundation line so blew me away that at the time I didn’t even notice that the […]

It’s the Weekend!

For many (including me) the weekend means sleeping in and waking up to a big breakfast that’s something special. Eggs your way, French toast, or if you’re lucky, pancakes.
