Spa Ritual Nail Lacquer

SPARitual nail lacquer (1)

A little news before we get to today's post- I have a cold. Ugh. I didn't say it was exciting news, but it's been almost two years since my last cold and I honestly forgot how brutal they are. Secondly, and much more exciting, I hit 1000 blog posts! This post is technically 1005, but still, I can't believe I've sat down to write a post over 1000 times... crazy! But back on topic- one of my favourites at that- nail polish! I've been sampling a selection of Spa Ritual products, but thought it was only appropriate to start with the Spa Ritual Nail Lacquer.

Back to School Beauty with Essence

essence (1)

Now that school has been in session for a couple of weeks, it's likely you've got all of your essentials- books, pens, paper, schedule.... and all that fun school related paraphernalia. Since that is out of the way, let's get to the other essentials- the ones that fill your makeup bag! Okay, I have to admit, that makeup was never an essential for me in school, whether it be high school or post-secondary. While I loved it and was already collecting it, I didn't make it an everyday thing. Plus, let's face it, makeup can be expensive, even drugstore prices have gotten to be a little much, but there is an answer... Essence! Not only can you get quality products, but at $5 or less you can stock up and not break the bank. Read on for a look at a selection of perfect back to school products!

Avon Anew Age Transforming 2-in-1 Compact Foundation

avon anew age transforming 2-in-1 compact foundation  (2)

Every now and then something arrives for review that I just can't get excited about. It's not often, but it does happen. The Avon Anew Age Transforming 2-in-1 Compact Foundation was one of those products. It was the wrong shade- which makes foundations really hard to get a good gauge of- and just didn't interest me...at first. Persuaded by a sale, I popped my correct shade into an Avon order I was placing and gave this foundation a try. Annnd, you know what? I've been using it steady since! Read on for the 411.

Today has been a day of never ending emails. I seriously sat down two hours ago to get to this post, but thought I'd just pop into my email for a second, see what was going on, you know? And before I realized it two hours gone. Anyway, perhaps it's time to get to what you're actually here for the Rimmel. Rimmel has recently released a new range of eyeshadow palettes in the form of Glam'Eyes HD 5 Colour Eye Shadows. Read on for a look!
