Cuepido Cosmetics

When it comes to makeup, I prefer a look that is natural, simple and that enhances instead of covering or transforming, which is exactly why Cuepido Cosmetics peaked my interest. Cuepido Cosmetics champions the idea of an absolute clean appearance by just putting on what you think is necessary and not overdoing Read more

Block Island Organics Review

Block Island - a gorgeous island located in Rhode Island. Yes, many people get confused - "isn't Rhode Island an island?" they ask me. I go on to list many islands found in Rhode Island - Patience, Goat, Aquidneck, Hog, Hope, Prudence Island... and so many more. My grandparents Read more

Pre-Natal Massage at The Lodge at Woodloch

Your aching back, your swollen cankles, your sore shoulders... if you are in your third trimester of pregnancy, I'm sure you can relate. There's so many things to look forward to with your impending arrival, but feeling like your body is falling apart is not one of them. As someone Read more

Makeup Wars: KEUNE So Pure (and so awesome)

KEUNE's So Pure products should simply be called "bottle of awesome." I had never tried this line prior to being sent them a few months ago, and I was skeptical that anything could combat my scalp issue at the time. All I can say is, scalp dryness and flaking? Read more

CIRCA Beauty

LORAC Sweet Temptations Lip Gloss Collection Review – Holiday 2012

LORAC’s Holiday Collection has a candy/sweets theme. One of the jewels of this collection is the Sweet Temptations  Lip Gloss Set ($25). The collection includes six full sized lip glosses with the sweet treat theme:

  • Pumpkin Spice (coral)
  • Butterscotch (pale peach)
  • Créme Brulée (light pink)
  • Cotton Candy (medium pink)
  • Frosted Gumdrop (bright pink)
  • Candy Apple (warm red)

Each of the glosses have the taste and scent of their name–such a fun added bonus! These sweet, hydrating glosses are infused with antioxidants like acai berry, pomegranate, grape seed, and vitamins C and E to help nourish and protect your lips. These high shine, shimmery shades range from nude peach, to pinks to candy apple red. I do wish the shade range was a little more diverse–there are an awful lot of pinks in the collection. The lighter shades don’t have as much opacity to them as Frosted Gumdrop and Candy Apple. Candy Apple is a lovely warm red that is perfect for the holidays and Frosted Gumdrop is a bright pink that would be ideal for Christmas Eve celebrations.  Read more
