Brush Care - 2018

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

It's been four years (!) since I wrote a post about brush cleaning. Since then, more products have entered the market specifically for brush care, so I thought I'd update the blog.  


Viseart Editorial Brights Palette

Thursday, July 5, 2018


I'm not sure if this is admirable or a little sad, but I'm familiar enough with Sephora's sale game that I often save big hauls for sales and plan out how I'm going to spend the yearly gift card a few months in advance. Last holiday season I had major plans for the GC, I knew by late August that I'd want to use Sephora's GC to purchase another Viseart palette, specifically the 12 pan Editorial Brights.

Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow 120

Tuesday, July 3, 2018


Inglot is one of the brands that was so hot just a few years ago, but really faded in online popularity after that. Recently a collaboration with J.Lo has put Inglot back in the limelight, I'm glad because many of their products really are just excellent. I'd like to lump in Inglot AMC Pure Pigment in 120 to that list of stellar products which I purchased up when I stopped at the London Inglot store.  It's duochrome-y goodness in a pot. 

Review: Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush in Orange Explosif

Monday, June 18, 2018

Good afternoon!

It's been well over a month since I blogged, things were pretty busy. Then we took a (well deserved, I might add) vacation to unwind a bit and drove all over the Scottish Highlands. Marvelous time, pics to come. On the way home I thought I'd pick up a thing or two duty free while at Heathrow. The Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush in Orange Explosif looked so good on Lily that I was immediately drawn to this shade for myself.

A Trio of Pure Heal's Propolis Products

Monday, May 7, 2018

One of my favorite products in skincare is propolis. My skin can get be really reactive and there's a whole host of ingredients that sets it off (snail mucus, fruit enzymes, a lot of sunscreen filters.... the list is quite long) but propolis is one that's always been safe for me. I started using the 90 Ampoule last year, then added in the Cleansing Milk and Softening Toner in January this year.
