I absolutely love getting new makeup. Trying the different colors and products, choosing a favorite, bringing it home and opening that pretty new package. It's even better when I get something I haven't tried before. Like makeup from CIRCA Beauty, a cruelty free makeup line that's affordable, long wearing, trendy, Read more

Sunscreen Pills - Do They Really Work?

With increasing frequency, I'm finding that I'm getting pitched more often to review sunscreen pills and drinks. I am a true skeptic when it comes to replacing what I know already works (topical sunscreen), and has worked for YEARS, with something so new that claims the same benefits. So Read more

Sephora Debuts Its New Line of Pro Makeup Brushes

Sephora has always been my go-to destination for all kinds of makeup, products, and tools (hello, samples!), but in terms of its in-house beauty offerings, the brand can be hit or miss. So if you’ve ever been skeptical about dabbling with their own selection of makeup brushes (I don’t blame you – good makeup brushes are one thing that’s usually worth the splurge!), it may officially be time to give them another go!

The makeup mothership itself has upgraded their beauty tool offerings in the form of a brand-new collection of Pro Brushes. Forty state-of-the-art brushes for all the makeup needs you could possibly think of – face, lips, brows, eyes, you name it – all with hand-shaped bristles, customized density, and elongated handles for better application, control, and color pay-off. After all, what good is a full collection of makeup if you’re not equipped with the proper tools to make the best of your beauty routine? Check out the full selection and stock up at Sephora!

Charlotte Ronson All You Need Eye Shadow Palette in Lake

Every time I venture into a Sephora, I always stop to look at the Charlotte Ronson display. I always find it interesting when a fashion designer branches out into cosmetics. Her packaging and colors give off a fun whimsical vibe that appeals to me.

The entire collection is designed around her muses—their different routines and diverse beauty—appealing to a wide range of women who want to look pretty on-the-go, without trying too hard. Every product seamlessly transitions from day to night, and is especially portable and easy to use. Plus, the formulas are infused with light-adjusting technology so you look flawlessly radiant in every cast of light—no matter what spotlight you find yourself under.

What caught my attention this time was the All You Need Eye Shadow palette in Lake. I wonder who this is named after? Lake Bell? Ricki Lake? Anywho, I found the color combination and mix of matte and shimmer shades in this palette quite unique. The shades are:   Read more
