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

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.

Moisture Makeover | L'Occitane Shea Butter Foaming Cleanser & Intensive Hand Balm

Happy Valentine's Day, lovelies! We already chatted up Valentine's, so today is about another February occasion: dry winter skin. Granted, not so much an occasion as a state of being, but by the time mid-February rolls around most of use could use some added moisture. This winter has been particularly cold and snowy here (I currently have someone on my roof clearing it away) and all the cold air has left my skin drier than usual (who knew that was even possible...) L'Occitane has my back though. Well, that's not quite accurate, face and hands, as they've sent along some shea filled products to get me through the last of the cold (and beyond.)

Shu Uemura Art of Hair | Colour Lustre

Even if you knew nothing about me, two things would be instantly clear- I'm not afraid of a little colour and that natural hair hues don't interest me much. I was trying to think back to the first time I dyed my hair (10th grade, when I finally wore my mom down) and realized that I've wanted any colour hair but my own (the blackest blue-black) from a pretty young age. All that said means that my hair has seen some things, been some questionable colours, and needed TLC. I take much better care of my hair than I once did, and recently it's the Shu Uemura Art of Hair Colour Lustre range that has been my go-to. It's just so good!

We chatted Valentine's Day just the other day (this post, remember?) so I won't blabber on on the topic (although, I likely could...) It's coming up quick, and you might just need a bit of gifting inspiration. This edition of This, That & Other Stuff is just that with a dose of everything red, pink, and lovey.
