Winter or Not, I’m Still Loving my Guerlain Bronzers!

15 Dec

Quick post today! Longtime readers of The Beauty Sample know that one of my all-time favorite bronzers is Guerlain’s Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder in Brunettes. Immensely flattering and oh-so easy to use, Brunettes is a one-stop product that gives you that wonderful, naturally radiant summery glow without having to worry about applying a separate [...]

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 Giorgio Armani Summer Collection 2013 Bronze All-Over Face & Eye Palette (Review, Swatches & Photos)

3 May

I usually don’t have a problem writing out an intro to my posts but in this case, I’m struck a bit dumb. Just look at that palette! I’m not entirely sure that words are really necessary here. So let’s all just take a collective step back for a moment and just gawk at the beauty [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

4 Nov

It’s getting to be that time of year again–the days are getting shorter, the temperature’s dropping, and there’s a constant smokiness in the air…winter is fast upon us. The horror!! Ok, maybe it’s not that bad, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call it my favorite time of year. Sure, it’s nice sometimes [...]

The Sample: Vapour Organic Beauty Solar Translucent Bronzer in 222 Simmer (Review, Swatches & Photos)

27 Oct

««Press Sample»» I remember reading somewhere once that you aren’t supposed to wear bronzer during the Fall/Winter months–what a bunch of baloney. Why not add some warmth and life back into your skin when it’s looking its drabbest? After all, isn’t that what makeup is for?! So on a particularly cold night a few days [...]

The Sample: Jouer Mineral Powder Bronzer in Suntan (Review, Swatches & Photos)

25 Aug

««Press Sample»» Well, it appears that I am officially on a bronzing rampage. Not so long ago, you’ll recall that I purchased my first “real”, high-end bronzer. It’s all been downhill since then. I just love how my face looks with a hint of bronzy-warmth to it–it really makes all the difference in the world! [...]
