NARS Steven Klein Holiday 2015 Fantascene Collection Nail Polish Review

Well I had wanted to provide you with proper nail swatches of the stunning NARS Nail Polish ($25 CAD/$20 US) shades in the NARS Steven Klein Holiday 2015 Collection but unfortunately my nails will not be cooperating. I had to finally file them all down to tiny nubs after a couple bad breaks. Nail wheel swatches will have to do! I am really in love with the nail shades in this collection. Especially Hard to Get. The formula on all the shades is wonderful and I adore the NARS Nail Polish's wide brush for easy application. The shades are: Hard to Get - Metallic bronze gunmetal (this is such

Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette Look

I have not been sharing enough looks with you lately. That is going to change! I think I was feeling in a bit of a rut since, because I work from home and live in a very rural area, I rarely leave the house or have occasion to do my makeup. Well screw it. I need to get back to having fun with creating looks beyond just utilitarian testing of products. Even if I'm not going anywhere. The Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette is a true inspiration to play so I'm sure this won't be the first look I share

DryBar Releases new Blonde Ale Products for Blonde, Silver, and Grey Hair!

I love keeping my blonde hair very ashen. I like white/silver blonde shades and start panicking when yellow tones start creeping up in my hair. I am so excited to try the new DryBar Blonde Ale system. Most of the purple shampoos & conditioners I've tried have contained products that I try to avoid in my haircare products like sulfates and silicone. The entire DryBar Blonde Ale line is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates and they don't test on animals. They not only counteract

Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

I think the Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette ($ US/$ CAD) has my absolute favourite Urban Decay packaging yet. Actually it is probably one of my overall beauty product packaging faves. It is so, so gorgeous. Pictures can't do it justice. Whoever came up with this design deserves some serious props! The palette features a dimensional web of facets that shift in colour thanks to an oil slick effect metallic finish. It is so freakin cool. It comes with a zippered makeup bag that you can store the

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder in Lit Review

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body in Lit ($30 US/$35 CAD) is described as a soft bronze shimmer with golden bronze sparkle.

The lower compartment hides a mini brush. Everything secures with magnetic closures. The powder has a dry feel but has a good level of
