Last year's Vision of Beauty Vol. 01 Collection contained some of my all time favorite products. I am a HUGE shu uemura fan and I anticipate their new releases with bated breath.

Top 10 Cold Weather Beauty Products | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten team is sharing our Top 10 Cold Weather Beauty Products. Over half of my products revolve around lips because keeping lips hydrated and protected in the winter is always a struggle. Add to that the fact I am not a very good girl when it comes to drinking enough water and my dry skin winter woes abound. Fresh Sugar Lip Polish ($22.50 US) I use this regularly to gently exfoliate the dry skin off my lips and keep them looking healthy. I keep it in the shower to make sure I don't

Beauty Spotlight Team Roundup for the Week of May 5th, 2014

The Beauty Spotlight Team has a new member who's ready to shake us up a bit. Her name is Sylirael and she's the creator of the blog The Painted Rogue. Considering that none of us are truly rogues we can't wait to see what Sylirael from New Zealand has to share with us. Maybe we'll be shaken a little. The Painted Rogue is wondering why academia is still so backwards when it comes to accepting makeup on its members? Here are some grad school looks from both ends of the makeup spectrum! 15 Minute Beauty is sharing her favorite

[caption id="attachment_8162" align="aligncenter" width="700"] OPI Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful Collection Which is Witch?, I Theodora You, What Wizardry is This?, and When Monkeys Fly![/caption] I am taken with the pieces I have from the OPI Oz the Great and Powerful limited edition nail lacquer collection. Particularly Which is Witch? and I Theodora You. Who knew I could fall so passionately for a pale pink. I never pay attention to that type of colour thinking it is rather unexciting but this shade of pink is just so

Gillette Wants to Know: Are Beards Killing the Kiss?

I had to share this hilarious video with you. I got such a kick out of this because it struck so close to home! OK scruff can be mighty hot...but do we really want to kiss it and have it rubbing all up on us. With my sensitive skin, beard burn is something I understand all too well. It's just not sexy! I also found the host to be pretty darn amusing. Gillette, a renowned shaving products company, decided to research this matter further and made a cute mini-documentary about it, entitled "Are We Killing the Kiss?" They

Makeup Wars ~ Products I Purchase Over and Over Again

I originally thought this was going to be a pretty tough Makeup Wars assignment for me. I have many products I adore but I rarely use up products because I have a "wee bit" of stuff AND I can never resist the urge to try something new hoping for my next miracle product. On that note when I really got to thinking about it there are several items I do repurchase, and shamefully some haven't even been reviewed. Amazing how the things you turn to most often can at times be the most invisible. In no particular order: Lansinoh HPA

Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Volumizing Mousse Review

It has been a long time since I have used a mousse. I associate hair mousse with crunchy curls. I have been using curl creams and gels for years now and have much preferred the results achieved. When I received the Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Volumizing Mousse I had no expectations of liking it. I guess mousse products have come a long way because I am really loving this mousse. As soon as I dispensed it I was impressed. It has these really thick, yet light, whipped texture. Not the airy, foamy texture I'm used to. It contains a

Makeup Wars Favourite Holiday Metallics

I had a tough time deciding what to feature for my favorite holiday metallics. I actually don't own much in the way of metallic makeup. It is a finish that I only recently started appreciating more. For the longest time I was appalled by metallic nail polish but finally came to the realization that you can find quality metallic finish lacquers that don't have brush strokes. I have also gotten over my aversion to glitter and metallic shadows on my lids realizing that I'm only 36, not 86, and life is too short to not enjoy these
