In the past 10 years the only item that I’ve purchased from Clinique is their Turnaround 15 Minute Facial. I bought it after reading about it in Allure. They just aren’t and never really were on my makeup and skin care radar. For some reason, I associate them and their products with older women – [...]

Max Factor Lash Perfection Mascara

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

There’s not much more I can say about this mascara that hasn’t been said already. It’s garnered tons of buzz and was of course named a Best Beauty Buy of 2006 by InStyle Magazine. Prior to using this Mascara, I hadn’t tried anything similar to the iFX brush and it really makes a difference when [...]

Silver is the New Black

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

While everyone is sitting patiently by their phones waiting for their local Chanel counter to call and say that their bottle of Black Satin has finally arrived, the trends are changing! According to Beauty and the Blog, the new trend as seen on the Spring 2007 runways is pewter nails and sparkly makeup – like [...]

I love look-a-likes (especially trying to find people in everyday life that look like celebs) – but they often don’t live up to the real thing (there are some exceptions though). just posted a brilliant article that discusses makeup look-a-likes. They compare the new line of E.L.F. cosmetics to Stila Lip Glaze (E.L.F has [...]

Morning Links – 10/30

Monday, October 30th, 2006

2 Mascara links for you this morning: The Beauty Blog tells us how to apply it -  How come, if I follow these instructions, my eye lashes never come out like that girls’ lashes that work in Sephora. She tells me that she uses Dior Show so I buy it and it’s never quite the [...]

Beauty Bargains

Sunday, October 29th, 2006

I sit here and write to everyone with the Queen Helene Mud Pack Masque on – I feel so pretty! Anyways, for all of those who live near a TJ Maxx, go check out their skin care/perfume section. I was browsing in a few TJ’s around me and found that they now have a lot [...]

Icelandic Beauty

Sunday, October 29th, 2006

This past May my boyfriend, Joel, I took a vacation to Iceland and Sweden. We went horsbeackriding through the Iceland countryside, saw all the natural wonders, and bathed at the Blue Lagoon (Ladies, get there if you can, it’s worth the 4 hour plane ride) while enjoying a white silica mud mask. I’m not sure [...]

Bath & Body Works Twisted Peppermint

Saturday, October 28th, 2006

I’m still getting used to Bath & Body Works’ makeover that they underwent almost 2 years ago. I still associate them with their first signature scent, Sun Ripened Raspberry, somethng all the girls in my highschool wore, but I was never into. But now they are much more than that. Pre-makeover they only carried their [...]

The Best Kind of Halloween Mask

Friday, October 27th, 2006

Ok, so I finally decided what I’m going to wear for Halloween – I’m choosing between either SkinGenious Pumpkin-A-Peel or MyChelle Incredible Pumpkin Peel. They come recommended from a friend who knows her stuff – thanks Tam! Pumpkins are packed with Vitamins A, C and Zinc and if nothing else, you’ll smell scrumptrilescent. If you [...]

Monopoly – Sephora Style

Friday, October 27th, 2006

This is genius! A Sephora edition of Monopoly? Wild. Forget the old school playing pieces like the car and the iron, they are being replaced with Sephora shopping bags. Players will be sent to jail for bad hair days, and instead of owning hotels you can own Sephora stores. Other big name cosmetics brands have [...]
