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 [...]

««Press Sample»»  Wow–it is seriously amazing to me that I used to be able to churn out reviews this size pretty consistently without batting a lash but now, with my busy schedule being what it is (coupled with my general lack of sleep…but that’s nothing new), it took me almost 2 weeks just to finish [...]

The Sample–Valentine’s Day Edition: NEW Lush Be Mine Set (Review & Photos)

13 Feb

««Press Sample»» I always hear people saying how much they hate Valentine’s Day; that they are alone and don’t have anyone to spend it with and hate seeing all the different companies–from greeting card to beauty brands–cash in on what is essentially just a marketing ploy. Well, I guess if you wanna look at it [...]

20 Oct

««Press Sample»» Ok, I’m just going to go ahead and give this product the only real endorsement it needs from someone like me: I don’t like to wear lipstick. Never have. I don’t like bold lips, I don’t like opaque lips, I don’t like matte finishes. If I ever do wear lipstick, it’s a very [...]
