Finally Embracing the Fall/Winter Color Palette…

13 Jan

My craving for deep plums and berries, olives, and rich reds has finally hit in full force…several months too late, apparently, as many brands are beginning their collective and meticulously coordinated launches into all things spring. Still, despite the sunny skies and often 80-degree weather here in So-Cal, I’m just beginning to embrace my love [...]

The Beauty Picks: Best Beauty Sets for the Last-Minute Shopper

The Beauty Snaps #2 (and a quick update about me)

So, I don’t really think I need to state the obvious (that I’ve been totally MIA lately from not only the blog but twitter and all of my favorite beauty blogs, as well). Apologies, guys! But I’m not sure I can promise that it’ll get any better any time soon. I’ve been really busy with [...]

The Sample: NEW Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Paradise Duo Iridescent Blush & Bronzing Powder in 002 Coral Glow (Review, Swatches & Photos)

22 Apr

Summer always sees the release of the best makeup collections, in my opinion. There are some who dig the darker tips and nails of fall or the bright, pastel shades of spring but I am a summer collection-lover through and through. Maybe it’s that all the warm, bronzy summery shades just seem to flatter my [...]

10 Apr

««Press Sample»» For many of us, though it is now officially spring, we still have to deal with a multitude of problems coming straight out of winter.
