Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer

Jouer Lip Enhancer

I want to personally thank my friend Susie for bringing the Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer to my life. I knew about the Jouer brand because I’m a fan of their lip sheers. But I didn’t plan on buying the balm. Well, on the train ride from Paris to Provence my girl Susie pulled it out […]

Dolce & Gabbana’s Monica Lipstick Collection

Monica Collection

Red lipstick has been my 2012 thing. I am now trying, testing, swiping, and applying them every week. Some are better than others and Dolce & Gabbana’s Monica Lipstick Collection is one of the best. I love creme lipsticks. Metallics are okay, but a good creamy lipstick will always make my day. I have also […]

Boots No7 Poppy King Lipstick in History

Poppy King for Target - History

There’ is a new red lipstick in my collection and it is courtesy of Target and Poppy King. The sheer loveliness of Boots No 7 Poppy King Lipstick in History is great for spring. It is not as intense a red that one might think. It glides on easily and leaves a perfect red hue […]

Lip Lovin’ ~ Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter


It started innocently enough. I was walking from my favorite tea shop and decided to stop into CVS to get some tissue. As always the beauty junkie in me passed the beauty aisle and there they were. I didn’t plan on buying the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter, but after walking up and down the beauty […]

New Year Beauty Expectation: Wear More Red Lipstick

Poppy Cream

It’s that time of year again. Every one seems to be making new year resolutions. But, I don’t like the word resolution. It seems as nothing gets resolved and you end up feeling bad because your resolution didn’t manifest. I like expectation. What am I expecting 2012 to bring me? I expect 2012 to bring […]

Cane + Austin Retexturizing Treatment Pads

Cane + Austin Retexturing Treatment Pads

If you are like me anything with the word “glycolic” has me shaking in my boots. I had a bad experience at a dermatologist’s office a few years ago and swore off anything with the “word that shall not be named” in it. When I was asked to test Cane + Austin’s Retexturizing Treatment Pads […]

NARS Cosmetics Holiday Collection 2011

NARS Holiday 2011 Group - lo res (Medium)

I was trying to wait until the end of October to put up holiday makeup collections, but when I saw the beyond beautiful collection from the NARS Cosmetics Holiday 2011 line I knew I was a goner. This collection reminds me of old Hollywood movies where the mystery of the celebrity was still going strong. […]

CoverGirl Natural Luxe Gloss Balm

CG Natural Luxe

There’s a magic that happens when you have time to examine all the beauty on a run to the drugstore. Since I’ve been home working I’m able to do something that was reserved for once a week. Polish changes. I paint my nails at least twice a week so I’m constantly in need of cotton […]

Dreaming of Spring: Bobbi Brown’s Mini Brights Palette

I'm dreaming of spring flowers, honeysuckle rose colored dresses, and Bobbi Brown's Brights Palette on my eyes. 

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick

I have made myself proud this fall season.  I'm wearing lipstick instead of lip gloss the majority of the time.  First up, NARS Cosmetics Pure Matte Lipsticks.  My current pick is Volga, but Vesuvio is also calling my name. You may be asking "aren't you working from home?"  Yes, but I still get dressed and […]
