Fall 2013 Allure Beauty Box

It’s that season again! Once a season Allure sells these beauty boxes, partial proceeds of which are donated to charity (they place an ad in the Allure magazine, you can also sign up for a news-teller at allureaccess.com they will email you a day before the box goes on sale).  I can never pass these, because I am the ultimate product junkie (or a hoarder, call it what you will).

June Beauty Favorites

Here are few products that I’ve been really liking for the lasts few weeks. Some of them are new, some are re-discovered :). First, can we just please talk about this nail hardener. Yes, those are my natural nails! I’ve been using this Quimica Alemana Nail hardener for a few months now, ever since it was recommended to me right here. Every five days or so, I remove my nail polish, file my nails and let them rest bare over…
