• Dolce & Gabbana Smooth Eye Color Quad in Tangier

    Dolce & Gabbana Tangier Smooth Eye Color Quad makes the Perfect Transitional Palette!

    Dolce & Gabbana Smooth Eye Color Quad is something I have been coveting for the longest time. But given the disparate reviews for various quads out there, I’ve been putting one or another palette in my shopping cart and taking it out again. This is what happens when there isn’t a physical counter where I […]

  • Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion in Amaryllis

    Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick in Amaryllis

    I am seriously conflicted… life is very difficult when you have not 1 but 2 favorites #onepairoflipsonly #firstworldproblem. I had waxed lyrical about these lipsticks before, but that was before I received my very first Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick. This line of lipsticks is not new to the brand, but since […]

  • Chanel Le Vernis Orage Dior Vernis Bar

    Tres Chic Nails for Fall! Black and Bold with Dior & Chanel!

    I have never been fond of pastel / nude shades on my nails… for some reason they just don’t look very good on me. Even on my wedding day I went with a pale gold polish over the traditional nude and pastel pinks. My usual colors are red, bright fuchsia, some greys, etc. But on […]

High Protection Sunscreen Comparison

Sunscreen Smackdown II: Battle of the SPF50s

After my last big sunscreen comparison review (read here), I uncovered another hidden stash of sunscreen samples #neverending. Interestingly, these are all rated SPF50 and above! I used to think SPF15 was sufficient #naive. But it seems there is a prevailing trend to chase after higher SPF ratings, in the hopes of preserving our youthful fair […]

Shu Uemura Tsuya Skin

Shu Uemura Tsuya Skin ft. Youthful Purifying Lotion

Shu Uemura has always been synonymous with beautiful makeup, and it has propelled the cleansing oil into our mass consciousness.  The brand has a diverse selection of skincare products that I am just starting to explore; beginning with the Tsuya Skin series, which is specially designed to address the Asian obsession with fair youthful radiance. “Beautiful makeup starts […]

Tory Burch Divine Blusher & Bronzer

Tory Burch Divine Blush & Bronzer for those Sun-Kissed Cheeks

Fall runway trends seem to be carrying over the ease of summer, using harmonious (if not similar) shades for both eyes and cheeks. The look is soft, with that lingering summer glow, and dusky rose / mauve / burgundy shades predominates. So, I thought it is quite apt to introduce this chic little palette that […]

Beauty Box comparison: Bellabox, Her Fashion Box, Little Black Beauty Box

A Beauty Box for Every Need…and a Giveaway!

It has been a very long time since I reviewed any beauty boxes… the trouble is they tend to be so fleeting, here 1 month, and gone another. The industry itself seems to have gone through some changes, with each box trying to distinguish itself from the competition. Regardless, it seems that beauty boxes are […]

Strivectin Clinical Corrector Collection

StriVectin Clinical Corrector Collection: My Current Base Routine

StriVectin is not your usual beauty brand, you are unlikely to see it paraded in every departmental store or drugstore. Its claim-to-fame, the NIA-114 ingredient that has been touted to repair every aging concern from wrinkles to stretch marks, has received highly controversial reviews. However, having used it successfully to erase stretch marks post pregnancy, […]
