Urban Decay Book of Shadows: NYC

15 Oct

Urban Decay has launched “another” book of shadows- this time with a NYC theme. The packaging is cute, but all the pop up to me is quite useless- just something to look at.  I actually wish that they spent as much time on their colour choices as they did their display.

OPI Nail Polish: Jewel of India

17 Jul

I have been taking a break from the “new and now” nail polishes – and I have decided to pick up some of my favorites from seasons past.  I find all the new teals, purples, greens and browns fun but not timeless or date worthy.  Out of all the “trendy” colours this year I am very much into the purples, so i decided to search my nail polish stash for a everyday, date worthy, work friendly purple click here to continue reading

MakeupForever HD Micro Perfecting Primer

26 Jun

I have never been huge on primers for the face; well actually I used to think they were just a waste of time and money because I thought that they really didn’t do much.

MUST HAVE MAC Products

I would describe myself as a collector or makeup, my kit (well actually floor to ceiling cabinet) consists of many different beauty products, brands and colours.  Some of the products come and hardly get used, some are used and never replenished, some are used and used, and a select few: I cannot fathom living without.  Today I want to talk to you about the few  MAC items that I can never go without being in my makeup kit. continue reading

                        

Revlon ColorStay Foundation Review
