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

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

I absolutely love getting new makeup. Trying the different colors and products, choosing a favorite, bringing it home and opening that pretty new package.

Revlon Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream Haircolor Review



I’ll be straight with you, I haven’t had the time in my schedule to cut my hair since September or October of last year. While I desperately need one, the one trick I know that makes people think that I did cut my hair, is to color it. Have you ever done this? I know I can’t be the only one!

Revlon had perfect timing with a Klout Perk I received to try out their new Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream Haircolor. I choose 30N, which is dark brown. I’ve never used any of Revlon’s permanent haircolor’s, except for their Frost and Glow, which I didn’t really have a good experience with (more bleaching than actual highlighting.) But I have to say, their Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream Haircolor has made me a fan.  Read more

Revlon Glam Holiday Nails

For someone who wore nothing but French tips for years, I’m really embracing the festive sparkly finishes in nail polish this season. The two polishes pictured above are both new from Revlon. The red polish on the left is Ruby Ribbon and has not only glitter but tiny bits of gold tinsel. It works beautifully on it’s own or layered over other solid colored polishes. I tried to capture the complexity 0f this polish but my camera skills are lacking. Suffice to say the bar glitter, sparkle and density of Ruby Ribbon is stunning and it definitely looks like a much more expensive polish.  Read more
