CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick 245 Smoky Fume!


      This another little milestone on my journey into a brave new world of lip color. It's a striking brown hue that, in my mind, hails complimentariliy to royal hues. It's none other than Covergirl's Lip Perfection Lipstick, I picked up as a gift actually. The person who gave this item to me was dismayed at what they perceived to be their inability to flaunt earthy lip tones (they muddle her complexion, her words not my own), and in so believing, gifted the item to me. A very lucky acquisition on my part! I've secretly been very curious about the whole line, but not without noted reservation. New lip color always makes me nervous, especially anything that isn't red or pink; still here we are with this lip color:

[PICTORIAL] Avon Ultra Color Rich Lip Lacquers!

So this would be the pictorial that I promised in my Avon beauty review from this week. I apologize but I was outside of my service range and none of the blogger modules would publish my post with any styling rich media! While that ordeal is over, I am considering finding a new service in general for publishing because the ones I'm using right now (powered by blogger) aren't working and I can seem to debug them myself or find any source of solace among the volumes of help documents. I will be posting her as per my usual habit but I will be even slower than usual so please bear with me. That being said, please also enjoy the rest of this pictoral!

20130519 Face of the Day!

Hey lovies! It's the end of the week therefore we are due for another look of the week! This look was created using some new items that I'm both please with and excited to share with you guys; continue on after the jump!

Avon Super Lustrous Lip Lacquers!


      Here's this weeks beauty review! Now, I'm going to abridge this review because I'm literally en route to Reno ( but I'm not driving though; gotta conserve that precious battery life). That being said, I'd like it if we could all take a walk down memory lane: did you have a relative or neighbor who sold Avon? and if you did, do you remember what your favorite products were? Maybe you, much like myself, were still fairly young and only just beginning to show interest in makeup. Whatever the case, one thing is certain: We all have at least one item that sticks out in our mind from the beginning of our relationships with cosmetics (that's what throwback Thursday is for, right?). For me, it was the ultra color rich lip lacquers. Each hue in the set represented the different statement, they were perfect, in so many words. That's my way of saying that I hope to do these lipsticks the justice they deserve!

Senna Stardust Face and Body Bling!



      I was lucky enough to receive these while working with Sindulge for this post, so I want to get a review out while it's still fresh in my mind! I have been fiddling with these items for a hot minute because a) I'm new to using highlighter and b) I seldom touch lip gloss to my lips. I don't think I did too bad a job on the highlighter, and I do mean what of it I actually applied and not my naturally glowing T-zone (a joke). This is my second time trying products by Senna, and I'm completely hooked! The powder is smooth and the gloss is complimentary with out being too overwhelming. Read all about it after the jump!

20130512 Sunday Face of the Day!


     Well now I do believe that is has been quite awhile since I last posted for face of the day, and with a kinda lame reason, but it's my own and I, uh, own it: I hit a briar patch in my good skin game and didn't want to bog down my skin with product. My skin is finally coming out of it, so I was feeling brave enough to do a post! is on our Lips!


Hey lovelies, we hope that you have been having a wonder spring and celebrating another new year with felicitous resolve, especially since we are drawing nearer to the half way mark already! If you’ve had a good go for 2013 like I have in regards to knocking things of your New Year’s resolution list, then I’d like to extended a virtual five-up to ya! If you’re at the end of the rope, and you love an extra challenge, then I have a pitch: Try some eco-conscious beauty brands and see how they stack up against your faves. Usually, these product can be located at your local green grocer, farmer’s market, or specialty store. Let’s say nothing jumps out for you, and should that be the case, we’re delighted to present a solution: Sindulge.
