Favorite Place To Shop For Makeup

Do You Have A Favorite Place To Shop For Makeup?

Today’s question is do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup? I know I do. More on that later. Sephora, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Ulta, Bluemercury, so many choices. All have similar brands, products to offer with respect to beauty and skincare. Some have more of high end products and others have a mix of drugstore brands and department store brands.

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask Review

Napoleon Bonaparte was once one of the most powerful men in Europe, but he once suffered defeat at the hands of cute, fluffy rabbits. There are a few different versions of this story. Some say there were hundreds of rabbits, others say there were thousands of rabbits. After a military victory, a rabbit hunt was organized for Napoleon and his comrades. When the rabbits were let loose, instead of hopping away, they turned and attacked the hunting party. Instead of catching wild hare, the hunting crew bought tame rabbits from the villagers and the rabbits saw the hunting crew as …

Moroccan Oil Treatment

Moroccan Argan Oil Treatment Review

For as long as I remember, I have been fighting an unseen battle against my hair. My hair has a mind of its own. A little bit about my hair, I have thick, wavy, frizzy, dry hair. In an ideal situation, wavy hair brings to mind images of soft, beachy curls, flying across my face, the sand in my toes and wind in my hair.  How I wish this were true. Moroccan Oil Treatment helps with this.

My quest to tame my unruly locks has introduced me to some amazing products. Moroccanoil Treatment is one such product. According to Sephora

Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation Swatches

As you all know I love getting samples. I received this foundation sample card from Sephora. Sephora offers 2 samples with every purchase and I selected this foundation sample card. This Make up Forever Ultra HD Foundation card has 4 shades to try out. It is a nice way to see where in the range you fall. You can make better informed decisions when you actually go to the store to get color matched or to make a purchase.

William Shakespeare said that the “The Eyes are the window to your soul.” We can convey a lot of information just through our eyes, without actually speaking a word.

Kaja Beauty Eyeshadow Trio and Lip & Cheek Duo

Now with the pandemic going on and everyone wearing masks, my focus has shifted from lipsticks, lip-glosses, and lip-balms to eyeshadows. I was on the Sephora website looking for something. I don't remember what, but as usual something else caught my eye. It was the cutely packaged Kaja Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio and the Kaja Cutie Bento Creamy Lip & Cheek Duo. Today I have the eyeshadow trio in shade Glowing Guava and the Creamy Lip & Cheek in the shade Sweet Sangria.

Are samples important to you

How important are samples to you?

A fun fact for you. Did you know that Honey never expires. Because of its chemical composition honey never spoils. 5,000 year old honey has been found and it is still edible, but honey has to be natural and sealed properly to enjoy its long lifespan. Isn’t that amazing. Coming back to today's topic…samples. I love samples. Getting them, trying them on and deciding whether they result in a purchase or no, is so thrilling and an effortless way to tempt customers. How important are samples to you?

L’Occitane, Molton Brown, The Body Shop, Sol De Janeiro Hand Creams

One thing we can all agree upon is that we use our hands for just about everything but we do not shower them with the love and care that they need. Our hands are overworked, up against the elements, exposed to the sun, cold, dirt, chemicals etc. Hands are one of the hardest working body parts and we neglect them immensely. L'Occitane, Molton Brown, The Body Shop, Sol De Janeiro hand creams work for me.

Luckily for us there are plenty of skin nourishing, moisturizing, skin-softening hand creams in the market today. When used regularly hand creams help in keeping …

NARS Madly Blush

Nars Madly- My Most Loved Blush Review

I personally feel that the blush sometimes gets mothballed as a non consequential, minor component of our makeup routine, compared to the more predominant lipsticks and eyeshadows. But blush has been around for centuries. Ancient civilizations use dyes mixed with fat, mulberries, beet juice, crushed strawberries, flower petal extracts to get that healthy flush of color. Cosmetics also had dangerous levels of cancer causing lead in them. Over the years things have changed and now we have the power of science behind us and we are changing for the better. Now back to NARS Madly blush.
