Spa Pedicure at Utopia Salon & Day Spa in Hawley, PA

The best part of living in a tourist area (the Poconos), is that there are a lot of little gems waiting to be discovered. For me, this gem has been right in front of my face for 13 years. I've driven by Utopia Salon & Day Spa countless times, but Read more

Reflekt Facial Exfoliator Review

This luxury facial cleanser makes skin feel amazing! I've been using Reflekt Skincare for the last 6 weeks about 2-3 times per week. In the summer, a regular cleanser alone won't do the trick to thoroughly rid my skin of all the "gunk" that warmer weather brings when wearing makeup, Read more

Malia B Luv Perfume Review

Some of the best perfumes are made by indie brands. When I first began blogging in 2005, I came across perfumer, Sharon Bolton, and her amazing fragrances. For a few years she went off the radar, but I was so thrilled when she recently reached out with the relaunch as Read more

Erbaviva Organic Deodorant Review

Mention "organic deodorant" and you may get a few raised eyebrows combined with some skepticism. People often wonder - Does organic deodorant smell weird? Is it strong enough? What exactly is it made of? I'm going to be straight up honest, I've never tried organic deodorant before simply because I Read more

Favorite Black Eyeliners

Favorite black eyeliners. #makeup #beauty #eyeliner via @agirlsgottaspa

There’s something that a black eyeliner conveys that brown or even brightly colored or metallic eyeliners can’t duplicate.

Black says bold, daring, classic, sexy. While there are times that I opt for brown or grey, a good black eyeliner is always my first choice. Read more

Butter LONDON Wink Eye Pencil Twigged Review

butter LONDON Wink #review #beauty

Don’t you just LOVE when you try something new and then that’s the very thing you get complimented on all day long? That’s always the #1 way I know I’m onto something good.

The very first day I took Butter LONDON’s new Wink Eye Pencil in Twigged ($18) for a spin, two ladies in the office asked, “Are you doing something new with your eye makeup?” My usual look is a little black eyeliner on my lid with some eye shadow and mascara, but on this day, I used some blended and smudged Twigged on my lower lash line and a little bit smeared inward from the corner of my upper lash line.

Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen and 2nd Star Twinkle Reviews

Pixi eyeliners review Today we’re going to take a look at the Straight On Till Morning Liner in 2nd Star Twinkle from the PixiGLOW Tinkerbell Collection and Endless Silky Eye Pen in True Teal. These eyeliners are on par with Urban Decay 24/7 liners; creamy, highly pigmented and budge-proof.

The packaging is darling! The box as well as the liner has a lovely vine and flower design in pastel colors with Tinkerbell making her appearance.

2nd Star Twinkle is a gorgeous olive green with gold shimmer. I find it looks beautiful with all eye colors. It brings out the green in blue eyes, adds a glow to brown eyes, and adds sparkle to hazel eyes. The texture is so smooth there is no skipping or tugging on over 40 eye lids. This liner absolutely will not come off until you remove it with eye makeup remover.

I suggest using 2nd Star Twinkle with neutral eye shadows for a hint of glimmer and to add some interest and dimension to neutral looks.  Read more

Hard Candy Lip Gloss, Eyeliner and Lip Pencil Review

The next time you’re perusing the aisles at Walmart looking for eggs or bread, take a detour at make a stop at the makeup section (like you don’t already). Don’t let the glittery, teenybopper display fool you, there is some good stuff there. Seriously, Hard Candy has some awesome products and even more awesome prices!

Walk the Line Liquid Eyeliner ($6) is an extremely long wearing liquid eyeliner with TONS of glitter– too much for my taste. The colors are beautiful however. I tried Turquoise but I think it much more of an emerald shade, regardless it is a rich deep jewel tone.  Read more
