Aromaleigh Spells! look

Aromaleigh is offering three additional “Adieu” collections – Wonderstruck, Spells! and Mythos – in addition to Ciao! Italia. I really dig all of them, but I find I’m particularly drawn to the Spells! collection! I ordered my sample set Oct. 3, and received it Tuesday, and couldn’t wait to use some of the shadows to …

High Voltage Halloween – a fall look

A little bit ago I decided I wanted to order from High Voltage, but I wanted to try their Lip Whips and wanted to wait until they were back in stock. Coinciding with the coming Halloween holiday, I not only got to order a couple Lip Whips but I also tried samples of High Voltage’s …

I love nail polish collections. I love the themes – like how OPI always uses countries or major cities for its seasonal collections. And China Glaze using different generations for collections like Vintage Vixen and Retro Diva. That’s probably why I love Killer Cosmetics, too! But not the whole reason, mind you. The eyeshadows are …

Borghese Scintillare

I found a nearly full display of a new Borghese collection called Scintillare a couple weeks ago, full of glittery mattes and what appears to be full sizes of mini bottles from a couple mini sets from last year! “Scintillare” is an Italian verb, according to Wiktionary! It means to scintillate, spark or glitter, according …

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

One day, I’m working. Preparing for vacation, while enjoying the last bit of summer. The next, my mom is on the phone, telling me something I never really thought about. “I have to get a biopsy,” she told me. Her mammogram revealed three lumps with microcalcifications in her right breast. I can’t say I felt …

Color Club Untamed Luxury: Indulgence Collection

Happy Monday, everyone! I had hoped to get the Color Club Untamed Luxury swatches posted before I left for vacation, but unfortunately there just wasn’t any time! Although there wasn’t much sun around yesterday, I was able to make time to swatch the part of the Indulgence Collection I hadn’t worn yet, as well as the entire Diamond …

Sephora by OPI Dating the Drummer

Hi everyone! How’s your Sunday going? I got eliminated from my work football elimination pool today, that’s a bummer! I picked Indianapolis Colts this week…and they lost. Oh well. At least I made it to week four on extremely limited football knowledge! Tonight is a new episode of Dexter, so the weekend will end on …
