The shadows are embossed with a modern chevron pattern.

Eternal Gold is a gorgeous palette with shades of pale gold ivory, grey-green, pale copper peach, rich

Get Natural Nails that Wow with the Amopé Pedi Perfect Electronic Nail Care System

Sometimes it just feels good to go au naturel. I'm not talking about skinny dipping (brr getting too cold for that!) or going barefaced and makeup free. I'm talking about nails! Having nicely groomed natural nails is a classic look that will never go out of style. Let's be honest though. Sometimes our bare nails just don't look so hot. Repeated nail polish changes can make nails look dry and dull. Well with the new Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Nail Care System you can wear your natural nails

Getting a Healthy Glowing Complexion with Avène Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Skin Tone Perfector

My skin is dry year round, and the  fall and winter months prove especially trying. I find I can never bring enough moisture to my skin. Dry, sensitive skin can make the cold weather down right miserable. It can also be incredibly aging over the long term. The Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Optimale skincare range is all about offering maximum hydration to sensitive skin which sounds exactly like the kind of products I need in my routine. In September 2015 Avène adds a new product to the

It features a Hydra-Gel Topcoat and a Triple Oil Complex at the core.

Elizabeth and James NIRVANA Launches New Dry Shampoos, Body Oils, and Hand Creams

Elizabeth and James NIRVANA Black is one of my signature scents so when I discovered they were releasing new products for hair and body I was VERY excited! While body products in our favourite scents aren't anything new, having access to hair products IS. I think every fragrance brand should look into expanding into more hair and body care products. It's always frustrated me that I could wear my favourite perfume yet have my hair smelling completely different. Even deodorant. Wouldn't it be nice
