SECRET Invisible Spray 48HR anti-perspirant/deodorant in fruit and floral scents

Secret currently offers four unusual and fun scents of Invisible Spray On antiperspirant/deodorant (might not be a glamorous product, but hey it’s necessary for most!). I purchased three of these, after trying the Boho Berry and wanting to see what the other scents were like (funny enough, I ended up buying these on three different […]

TARTE Pro Glow To Go highlight and contour palette

I’ve had this TARTE highlight + contour palette for a little while now, and use it all the time! The universal colors are easy to apply—you pretty much can’t mess this up (if you apply too much or too little just blend it out or add more). And, winter is when you need to be […]

PAT McGRATH LABS Mothership III Subversion palette!

PatMcGrath LABS has recently created three Mothership palettes that are SO LUXE and beyond beautiful! Since these are on the higher price point end ($125.00 USD per palette), I chose to purchase just one (alas). And, it was a struggle deciding which of the three that would be! I landed on the Mothership III Subversive Eye Palette […]

KAT VON D Lock-it setting powder

Although I usually tend toward a lighter hand and more natural look with foundation, concealer and powder, I’ve found that my under eye area can use a little more perfecting. Hence, I picked up this Kat Von D setting powder primarily to solve end of day mascara smudges under my eyes, caused by oil build-up […]

KJAER WEIS Lip Tint in Lover’s Choice

So, this product was definitely a splurge! I had noticed this line of cosmetics when it was sometimes mentioned in beauty magazines. And, I was immediately in love with the slick, sexy, silver packaging (not to mention the product color choices). I found out that the admirable goal of Kjaer Weis’s founder Kirsten is to […]

COVERGIRL Ready, Set, GORGEOUS! oil-free foundations

After reading a few excellent reviews on this foundation, I decided to pick up a couple shades of Ready, Set, Gorgeous!                         I thought these would at least be perfect small plastic squeeze tubes (with screw on lids) to toss in my purse for […]

PACIFICA Supernatural Eye Shadow Trio—Cold, Stone, Fox

I picked up this cute, little Pacifica palette at Pharmaca not too long ago for only $12.00 USD in the color trio: Stone, Cold, Fox.                           This is one of their Supernatural Eye Shadow Trio palettes. The shadows all have a cream-to-powder finish (they […]

The September Birchbox I selected and received was designed by illustrator Emily Isabella, titled Creative, Magical, Colorful. Birchbox asked subscribers […]
