Simple eye and hot pink lips

Saturday morning, and I’ve already cleaned the house, walked the dog, did few loads of laundry and can catch up on the magazine reading (I’ve been hoarding them for months, been so busy I hadn’t had time to read them) and maybe even find some time to watch few Harry Potter movies (I’m an absolute Harry Potter geek, if you didn’t know already). Feels so good to finally relax after a tough week. While I work on a new post,…

Smashbox Photoready BB Cream

Here’s a product that I’ve been dying to try: Smashbox Camera Ready BB cream. It comes in five different shades: fair, light, light-medium, medium and dark.

I use a few drops on the area that I want to treat…

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). If I end up not using or liking something, I…
