Temporarily Down for Maintenance


While it isn't quite as cute, my computer is in shambles... kind of. I've got a virus. Blargh. My skills aren't quite hot enough to tackle it on my own, and my amazing computer dude happens to be out of the country, so I'm forced to seek professionals.

I have a loaner computer for a few days and I was able to get files off my own computer, so I should be able to get a few posts up. Hopefully I'll be back on track soon ( with a huge giveaway, too!)

See you soon :D

Review: MAC Cut a Caper Lipstick


Another unintended absence on my part... I need to get my blogging butt back into a routine. But I see there are a few new followers, welcome everyone! Today I've got a fast post, but this happens to be a new favourite of mine.

Swatched: Avon Colour Rich Lipsticks- Wink, Poppy Love, Pretty and Mauved Odyssey


I've said it before, and I'll say it again (yes, again) Avon can make a super fantastic lipstick. Like, as good as your fave MAC formula. It's true. The trouble is getting the right one. Their Ultra Colour Rich lineup has the best formula, but some shades have shimmer/frost, which isn't always so great. They have finally brought back classifications when you order from the book. Way back in the day it was a little triangle that signaled shimmer or glitter. Now they four typical variations Shimmer, Satin, Sheer and Matte. Easy peasy! I'm a satin fan (all shades in this post are satins) but Pout, a long time favourite of mine and a dupe of MAC Angel, is classed as a shimmer, yet to my eye, is shimmer free. So there you go.

Swatched: A England Princess Sabra, Saint George, and Tristam


Hello, blog fans! As you might have noticed I took a little getaway. I had a job interview that (from my view of things) went remarkably well. I was on a high. Fast forward two weeks and no call back... I was feeling a bit down to say the least. Not a full I-Heart-Huckabees style existential crisis, but I wasn't feeling my best. But, the pity party is over, and it's time to get to a bunch of fun products just waiting to get some attention.
