anna sui lip gloss and lipstick

One of the best parts of blogging, in my opinion, is getting to try new brands. There are the brands we all know (and love) and the personal favourites, and then the ones we've never gotten around to trying. Anna Sui falls into the latter category for me, so I was pretty excited when I found Anna Sui lipstick and lip gloss in a recent package.

mixed chicks leave-in conditioner

Hair, hair, wondrous, hair...

When it behaves, it's a marvelous thing but when it goes wrong it can bring down your whole damn day. Right? You know. I find my hair is the most troublesome the day it's washed- my ends never seem like they can get enough moisture. Hence why I took the opportunity to try out Mixed Chicks Leave in Conditioner. Could it give me the perfect, first day hair of my dreams? Read on and find out!

ag fast food leave on conditioner

It's that time again- October.

Sure, it comes around every year (as it should) but it also brings on an onslaught of pink themed products and packaging to raise money for breast cancer research. One of such products is the amazingly scented AG Fast Food Leave on Conditioner. Read on!

japoneque power curl lash curler

Today I spent a large part of my day organizing post for your lovely faces. I laid everything out and started planning and photographing away. But, I didn't plan anything for today... blogger fail? Maybe?

I do like to have a few 'emergency' posts laying in wait for moments like this (also good on the days you have zero ambition but are determined to get something done.) Emergency posts are usually something simple like a NOTD, quick review, or a product I know and love that won't take much to throw up (ahem, bad choice of words there...) Today brings us the Japonesque Power Curl Lash Curler which took my heart by storm last month. Read on to see what makes it so special.

stila colour outside the lines smudge stick set

Happy Monday, everyone!

How was your weekend? I spent mine fully immersed in American Horror Story. I have had season one on my computer for way too long and decided to 'just watch one' before bed. You can't just watch one! It's really good. Needless to say, I'm now watching season two, which might actually be better than the first. I also found some time to play with a few new Stila goodies, including their Colour Outside the Lines Smudge Stick Waterproof Liner Set. I've always liked Stila as a brand, but somehow have only ever used their blushes. Read on!

vivisal hair nourishment system

Oh, hair. Does it not seem like we're never happy with what we have? Longer, lighter, curlier, thicker... it goes on and on but something I think most of us can agree on is that we all want healthy, strong hair. Which is why I had little to think about when the opportunity to trial Viviscal came about. Heard of it? Miley Cyrus stated in a recent interview that she's taking the supplement to help grow out her short hair. I quite like women with short hair cuts, and have worn mine pretty short in the past, but I totally know the feeling of wanting it grow in that little bit faster when you're over it.

lancome gwp at hudson's bay- fall 2013

In my own small town there are no malls with any sort of beauty counter- beyond Shopper's Drug Mart, anyway. It's a disappointing truth. So, I always get excited when I'm in a city and have the chance to stop by a big mall and hop from counter to counter. Of course, the absolute best part about that is the chance to score some amazing gift with purchase (GWP) goodies! Who doesn't love getting to bring home not only some new products to play with but a big bag of deluxe samples too? Currently, Hudson's Bay is offering up a pretty fab Lancome GWP. Read on to see what you could score!

skin&co roma truffle body milk & sicilian body gel and lotion

Let's try this again...

I just published this with no intro, but I totally thought I'd written one so clearly had a mini panic wondering where it went. It turns out things show up better when you've actually added them to the post. Who knew?

Today's post feature's Skin&Co Roma, which is a new brand to me but one that I kind of which I'd known about a lot sooner. You know when you try something and can't help but wonder how you lived for so long without it? Yeah, it's kind of like that. Read on!

avon nail art design strips- halloween & holiday desgins!

Easy nail art is the best type, and it doesn't get much easier than popping on a nail wrap/strip/sticker (call them what you want.) None of the fuss but all of the glory. Avon's Nail Art Design Strips (review) (NOTD) are perfect as is, but they've gone and added some new designs to see you through Halloween and the holidays. Read on to check them out!

make up for ever artisan brushes- 220 small shader

I think brushes are my new lip gloss.

What I mean by that is that I seem to have the same affliction I once had with lip gloss- I just can't pass them up. If I see brushes I have to have at least one. Sure, I have enough, but what really is enough? Can you ever have too many brushes? I'm not sure you can. The newest brush to join my collection is from the new Make Up For Ever Artisan Brush range. It's small and rather uninteresting brush- if we're being honest- but it's become a fast favourite. Read on to see why!

lush let the good times roll facial cleanser

Happy Monday, Blog fans!

Did you miss me as much as I missed you? Maybe? I was rendered useless when my memory card broke, but, not only did it break, but the little piece that locks the card broke off in my camera. A rather long succession of... colourful words might have fallen out of my mouth at the time, but in the end everything worked out fine. Granted it did take longer to have fixed then I would have like, but isn't that usually the case? All that aside, I, like the product at hand are back! That product being Lush Let the Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser. Read on!

the body shop honeymania eau de toilette

I love new releases from The Body Shop!

There is just something about new Body Shop products that I can't help but get a bit (too?) excited about. The last time was this excited about a new Body Shop range was when the Vineyard Peach items came out. They are pretty fantastic, but the soon to be released (available in stores Oct. 7th) Honeymania collection seems like it will be a winner too. I've had some time to preview the Honeymania Eau de Toilette, so read on for my thoughts!
