Ooops: I forgot about Chanel Nail Polishes. The formula is not good but he brush doesn’t help either.. soooo thin! They should learn from Barry M at 2.99! ( Chanel cost me about 19 for ONE bottle)

GlamGlow white foil or black foil?

The black foil smells divine but found it too harsh
The white has helped me clear blemishes and I like it a lot ( well I like everything but the price)

issy commented on the post, What do you look for in a new foundation? 3 weeks ago

Something that transforms a tired, dull, and sometimes blemished skin into my own self of 20…… and keeps it for about 6 hours and can I say I sort of have found it at a very reasonable price?. It is the new […]

I used to think the same about Seche Vite until I found ( well. I watched Tiffany’s video on dupes) something that does the same at a fraction of the price: “Out the Door” top coat

No really. When I have a complete day at home I normally use that time to give my skin a deep cleansing and then a hydrating or firming mask ( or both) of some sort. Also because my hair is dry I put it on a […]

I have them threaded every year or so by a genious in the matter and tweeze the occasional “rebel” osingle hair (that regrows in the same spot) and I am done!
