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 Snaps #2 (and a quick update about me)

4 Jul

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 [...]

««Press Sample»» Hey guys! Today I want to introduce you to a new brand that recently launched at Nordstrom–Gorgeous Cosmetics! If you attended The Makeup Show in L.A this year, you will have seen Gorgeous Cosmetics there promoting their U.S launch. Apparently the brand has been around for a while and has been a wild [...]

The Sample: NEW Paul & Joe Beauté Cheek Colors in 04 Cinema and 10 Ombrage (Review, Swatches & Photos)

21 Feb

««Press Sample»» Did your parents ever take you to the carnival/fair when you were a child? I loved it there. It was a place where you could let loose and have some good old-fashioned fun; a free pass to gorge on all the  popcorn and cotton candy you could handle, play games, and of course–my [...]

The Sample: NEW Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 76 Frivole (Review, Swatches & Photos)

5 Feb

Anyone else feeling like there could finally be the beginnings of just a hint of spring in the air? I certainly am! The weather here has been strange–it warmed up quite nicely last week, even reaching the mid-70′s during the day. Okay so admittedly it’s a bit chilly today but still, I feel much more [...]

The Sample: IT Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc (Review, Swatches & Photos)

13 Dec

««Press Sample»» I had never heard of IT Cosmetics before until very recently, when I began hearing some buzz about the brand. What sealed the deal for me, though, was when Best Things in Beauty began raving about the brand (here and here). If the queen of high-end, high-quality makeup can’t say enough good things [...]

The Sample: Becca Mineral Blush in Sweetpea (Review, Swatches & Photos)

17 Nov

There’s a reason why this blush is called “Sweetpea” and it must be because it creates the sweetest, most natural-looking flushed cheeks ever. I had been looking for the perfect neutral blush for a long time, spending hours looking up reviews for all the popular ones–from Exposed to Douceur to Neopolitan Lane (which was *almost* [...]
