The lipstick looks edgy with the new packaging, it applies super smooth. It doesn’t dry my lips and lasts quite well. The color is so subtle and pigmented that I will be reaching our for it daily. The finish is a subtle sheen.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick In Pink Quartz

This shimmering, brush-on powder creates a soft, warm pink glow. Works well with neutral and pink blush shades.

To apply: Sweep the Face Blender Brush through all five shades of Shimmer Brick Compact and dust lightly on cheekbones after blush. Focus on applying shimmer on the top of cheekbones – where light naturally hits the face – for the most flattering look.

OVERALL : I have never loved a product this much !!! It’s from her permanent line so it can be easily purchased. I have two more similar drugstore shimmer bricks that I will be comparing soon. However, the Bobbi Brown Powder is so finely milled that it doesn’t just “sit” on the skin rather blends effortlessly. I use it just above the cheeks connecting to the brows. Use the blush as usual. This adds such a depth and dimension to the fave like nothing I have seen before. Unlike other shimmer powders it doesn’t settle into the pores, but just adds that glow! Highly recommended !!!!

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure In 550 Blue My Mind

Hey friends !
This is just a quick post .. Wanted to share my winter blues 😊
Used the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Polish to satisfy my urge for blue nail color.. It’s a vibrant cobalt blue. Swatched 2 thick coats. It comes with a wide brush which made it difficult to reach nail sides without smudging over the skin. No matter how much I swipe the brush, it still holds polish that drips so you have to careful and quick to apply else it follows onto the nail. It’s a nice color but I didn’t like the brush.

OVERALL : I would definitely recommend this product to those who are in search of a perfect lip care. One wear lasted me hours and survived a cup
of tea and a meal. I would place it amongst the top products out there. I have tried and have not been wowed by the Dior Addict Lip Glow, but this has surpassed my expectations.

It can be purchased via company 3Lab directly or through high end stores like Barneys, BeautyBar and Amazon.

Dior Addict Gloss In 613 Cygne Noir

OVERALL: They don’t last longer than average long lasting gloss but they keep lips so well hydrated even after they wear off. For best color effects they are best worn layered over a lipstick. They are quite sheer but plenty of sparkle !!

Kiss Insta Wave Automatic Curler


Fashions comes and go, styles change but my “straight hair hairstyle” has been constant for almost a decade now. One of the reasons (actually The ONLY reason) being that I did not know how to style my hair besides using the friendly flat iron.

When I saw the Kiss Hair Curler , I was prepared to be disappointed while secretly hoping it would work.

So.. Here goes :

[ A word of advice : Please comb your hair straight to create a neat looking curl. ]

KISS InstaWave is a fully automatic tangle-free curler. I tried to test the tangle free theory by starting off with uncombed hair, it didn’t give me any issues besides a mess (well expected).

It’s been designed for use in any angle, with any hand. It Features an innovative Curl Dial with left/right curl direction option.
As a safety feature, product Automatically shuts off after 90 minutes.
It also comes with a 2 heat settings with a low/high switch for a maximum temperature of 420.

**Tip: Switch between curling right and curling left to create the most natural looking curls.

This video gives a quick look at the product :

The site for the KISS InstaWave is KISSInstaWave.com
In the US, KISS InstaWave is available in Target, Ulta & Amazon.com and it retails at $59.99 USD.

In Canada, Kiss InstaWave is available at Walmart.
It will soon be available on Walmart Canada.com – it is expected to be live on November 20th.

OVERALL: The product doesn’t tug your hair at all! I have tried to go closer to the scalp and it simply unwinds the hair on pulling, so it’s a safe product to use. The heat setting is quite good, I had no smoke or burning of my hair that I usually get from my flat iron. Since I have shoulder length hair, it didn’t make dramatic curls but it added that bounce and style I needed, so it definitely works on hair as short as mine or longer.
Is it worth buying? I must say that it’s a revolutionary product!! Give it a try and it is sure to keep you impressed.
FYI : On turning on the machine makes a low humming noise, the company as CONfIRMED that it’s normal and not a hazard at all.

W7 Captain Matte Foundation, Chunky Cheeks Blush Tokyo, Chunky Bronzer In Hawaiian Bronze

*Press Sample, Affiliate Link

For those who are new to the brand W7 Make Up,

the inspiration of two entrepreneurial young men from West London was created in 2002. Their aim – that every woman should have access to an extensive range of high quality cosmetics at an affordable price.

The company has grown year on year and now W7 boasts a collection of over 500 products including: nail polish, lipsticks and glosses, eyeshadows and more mascaras than you could dream off.

The first thing about the products are the way they are designed. Super simple to use, neat and needs NO beauty tools !!! (YAY!!)

The blush and the bronzer stick comes in a lipstick like form, where it can be twisted at the bottom to being out more product. It’s easy to apply directly to the face and blends very easily with the finger tips. I have noticed that no matter how much you apply, there is no way that it can over-applied.

Swatches are heavily applied and easily blended with fingertips.

The one thing I was most impressed was by the Foundation. Oh wow! It comes in a nozzle tube, you squeeze only as needed. I never need to use a concealer as it’s very high coverage. It forms a perfect dewy skin finish. Again, cannot be over applied and blends with fingertips. The formula has a cooling sensation on skin and lasts really well without the need to powder.
