Maquillage Naturel avec Maison Jacynthe

Joyeux vendredi, admirateurs des blogs! Aujourd'hui nous avons quelque chose d'un peu différent... Le Francais! Kidding. My French skills are not nearly sharp enough for a full French post (although, I have been doing my mostly-daily lessons with DuoLingo and Rosetta Stone.) We will be chatting up a French-Canadian brand though. I was very excited about the chance to feature Maison Jacynth, as they're not only Canadian, but they specialize in natural and organic products (skincare, beauty, and home) free of undesirable things like chemicals, petroleum by-products, preservatives and synthetic fragrance.

L'Occitane Solidarity Balm 2017

I doubt you need me to tell you this, but the world isn't exactly doing so well. Between wars, rampant hatred, the orange one, and a general lack of empathy for one another, there is a lot of room for improvement. That said, there are some amazing things that make it all worth while. And incredible people working to make the world a bit better for all. L'Occitane is part of that group, and has recently launched this year's Solidarity Balm.

Trini Girl by Nicki Minaj

It's still winter. *Audible sigh*. I don't so much mind the cold, but the snow is... terrible. If, like me, you're dreaming of warmer days, you may want to take a little sniff of the newest Nicki Minaj fragrance, Trinit Girl. I know, celebrity scents, right? I'm not one to care much about them, but when they cross my path I'm willing to give them a test. I've been pleasantly surprised by a few (hello, Jessica Simpson Fancy) and Nicki actually has some really decent scents.

This v.s That | Maybelline Mascara Edition

So it seems National Lash Day just passed (Feb. 19th) but I'm stretching the lash love a day longer. Why? Because I had no idea National Lash Day existed, and because I can. I may be slightly drunk with power... Anyway, it should be obvious by now that we're talking lashes today, more specifically mascara. While I enjoy a few higher priced mascara options, it's drugstore brands that I flock to most. You can find some great formulas at decent prices. One brand who excels though is Maybelline. They're always up to something when it comes to new mascaras, but which one is worthy of your time (and cash?)

Light, Reinvented | Mary Kay Spring 2017

::: press sample :::

It's about this time of year that one starts to think Spring may never return. There is just so. much. snow. It's snowing as I type. Spring will eventually return (mid May, maybe?) but until then faking it seems like the best approach. Mary Kay is making that a bit more possible with their spring collection Light, Reinvented, which launches tomorrow. With pretty hues for eyes, lips, and nails you can't help but feel a little warmer.
