The Clarisonic! I thought it might have some fair effect but in my case, the results were dramatic, and I really do find it extremely gentle.

Believe it or not, a lot of red pigments today that are in lipsticks and tinted balms still originate from beetle shells! If you look at “Natural colors”, “Carmine”, “Natural red Number 4″ or “C.I. 75470″, these […]

I actually know a few girls who wear corsets underneath their regular wear. They’re all young women who appreciate the feminine, romantic aesthetic so they’re always wearing dresses and corsets. You can’t really […]

I think the reason people hate contouring is because you can only notice when it’s done badly!

I don’t know, I think that’s more in reflection of the trends I’m seeing in people’s tastes (Correct me if I’m wrong!) – a natural, “my lips but better” look is so much less stressful to maintain than a powerhouse […]

I’m actually starting to think that a part of the reason that I read beauty blogs is so that I can know my products well in advance (from a reliable source) and spend as little time at the counter as possible! I […]

Unfortunately I’m sensitive to something in the YSL Glossy Stains! It’s terrible because I love the texture, shade and finish of mine and know how many people absolutely love them!

I think I was about… thirteen? It wasn’t really used with anti-aging intent, but I did use an anti-wrinkle moisturizer from a brand I liked. It was basically just super-hydrating, so I tried it as my Winter […]

I’d LOVE to have a hairstylist wash and blowdry my hair all the time, too.
