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. 

Brush Drying Rack Comparisons

Monday, April 23, 2018

You know you have too many brushes when you have not one or two brush drying racks but three, four, and yet you still can't wash all of your brushes in one go. Over the past few years I've accumulated a few styles of brush holders to help me wash my brush hoard and have a clear preference over what I think is the best. 

Review: Viseart Dark Matte Palette

Thursday, April 12, 2018



Last August Emi alerted me that Alcone Company was having an absolutely incredible sale on Viseart 12 pan palettes, pricing them at $52 (and tax free to boot) each instead of their normal $80. No hesitation, I plopped two palettes in my cart. I picked up Dark Matte and Cool Matte, and understandably Dark Matte was on backorder for quite some time. No matter, at that price I can wait patiently for a few extra weeks.

Natasha Denona Eyeshadows: Palettes 4, 8, & 9

Thursday, April 5, 2018

I bought my first Natasha Denona shadows last year, but it's taken me quite some time to review them. At first I thought I'd just review the one palette I had, but it was so good that I bought another one. Then another. It's getting out of hand, so I made myself promise to blog about these before anymore of them landed in my cart.
