Laura Mercier Art Deco Muse Collection Review and Swatches

IMG_3725

When I opened these eye shadows at home I was royally ticked. I purchased them downtown (an hour away from where I live) at Holt Renfrew were I had to beat off the sales associate trying to book me in for makeover. She made the word “persistant” look mild and just wouldn’t take no for an […]

The Palette of the Year: Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette For Eyes Review & Swatches

IMG_3696

Sometimes I look at a palette and wonder why would the creative team put those particular shades together. 60% of the palette will be lovely sophistication and then there will be 4 wacky shades that completely throw me off and I know I will never use. This is why I have skipped Urban Decay palettes […]

IMG_3765

I have turned in to a bit of a Guerlain fiend of late. It all started with my adoration of La Petite Robe Noire perfume in the early fall and grew to full out obsession with Rouge G De Guerlain L’Extrait (liquid lipstick) and the glorious Liu collection for Holiday 2012. I was a little late on the […]

Holiday Gift Guide 2012: For Procrastinators

Holiday Gift Guide-Subscriptions

I usually have my Christmas shopping done and wrapped by early December, but this year just got away from me. For someone who loves to blog about beauty and fashion, I hate to shop…at least when it is crowded. Masses of frantic shoppers and desperate sales associates clinging to their last modicum of sanity just […]
