Dior Deluxe Travel Paletteicon ($70.00) is finally available on Nordstrom’s website, so I imagine it should already be in stores (and if not, it will be shortly). I’m going to have to check it out in person before I decide whether to pick it up or not, but I love the way it looks! I know we’ll see a few more holiday palettes from Dior yet, so I might have to wait for those!

AG Hair Cosmetics is a family-owned company founded by John and Lotte Davis. John started his haidressing career in England back in the mid 1960s, while Lotte has a marketing and design background. Together, they created AG Hair Cosmetics, which is all about using high quailty ingredients for high quality products. And for my Canadian gals, this line is based out of Vancouver, BC; but it is available at over 10,000 salons in North America.

AG came at the perfect time for me, because I’ve only just started to style and use heat styling tools on my hair, so it’s imperative that I really make sure I turn up my hair care routine. Determined to look into better hair care products, I turned to AG, and it has been working out fantastically!

Their Colour Savour Shampoo ($20.00) is a sulfate-free shampoo that’s color-safe, as well. You get amazing lather–something I find lacking in higher end shampoos, especially ones purported to be natural/organic–and you don’t need a ton. There’s a citrusy-scent to it. I’m reminded of vitamin C powder every time I use it (or the coordinating conditioner). The shampoo also has sunflower seed extract, which is supposed to protect your hair color from UVA degradation.

Don’t forget the conditioner! Continue reading →

I was just nosing around, and I stumbled across the Adoring Carmine collection page on maccosmetics.com. I’m all over the red and rose lip sets, and hopefully I’ll find the neutral lip set passable! I’m determined to resist the brush sets this year, if only because I truly, truly have no use for them other than to drool. Though I do love the brush bag!

Plus, here are Passionately Red and Passions of Red!
