Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge and Silicone Liner Brush review

 In general, the Real Techniques brand has produced some stellar brushes at affordable prices. In fact, I love my Expert Face Brush so much I bought another just because I didn't want to go without one between washes. I'm often curious to see what other options this brand will come out with.

Brightening up!

products for brightening skin

As far as skincare goes, though there are still some nagging skin issues, I've pretty much moved up the hierarchy of Maslow's Skincare Needs. The basic cleanse-tone-moisturize stages have more or less been fulfilled and now I'm searching for full skin-actualization.

garnier deconstructed beach chic hair spray pixie play creme move it gel review

 Garnier's new Deconstructed line promises a done-yet-undone look with 24 hour touchable, deconstructed style with a soft satin finish. Having tried a pseudo-perm (where I waffled for about 20 mins at the salon and the dresser decided to finally imitate a perm by blowdrying so I could get a sense of how it would look before I committed....) I realized I wanted to do something NEW with my hair. I like my hair generally but I just wanted something different so instead of opting for the perm (though I still just may) going with styling products seemed an inexpensive alternative.

Swapping the Stash with Citron and Guavaberry

sleek rose gold blush, tarte off the cuff palette, chanel intonation blush, clinique peach pop blush swatches

Let's be honest, sometimes we just want to try something with committing to the purchase. Thankfully, blogger friends makes this easy enough and so  Vanessa from Citron and Guavaberry and I had a little get together over the weekend, where not only fun times were had but also some blush swappin' was done.

L'Oreal Extraordinaire Gloss (Orange Tempo/Rouge Allegro) and Maybelline Elixir Comparison

If you're seeing this twice, its because it's also guest posting on Alicia's blog right now. 

L'Oreal Extraordinaire gloss Orange Tempo rouge allegro swatch review

Since I loved the Maybelline Elixir gloss I picked up, I wanted to try out the L'Oreal versions as a comparision. Thankfully Shoppers was quite happy to help me out with this since they went on sale a few weeks ago.
