Sephora Face the Day: Full Face Brush Set and Gold Den Brush Set review comparison

Brush sets are to makeup, what Bulk Barn is to my food pantry, a great way to pick up a lot of something for a decent price. These are especially great when you don't have a lot of brushes to begin with, not exactly a problem I have. Sephora offers more than a few options and two even newer options just popped into stores.

Some Stylin' People

Often tag posts ask for style icons. Often people cite Audrey. Often I don't know how to respond.

I use to have a giant girl boner for Kate Lanphear. I was all in girl crush love over her grungy designer rock style But lately she hasn't been as prevalent on my radar. Since I mostly read blogs instead of fashion spreads, I've finally given it a think and here are some of the people whose wardrobes inspire my own.

For the Eye Bags - Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector*

*Press Sample

Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector swatch review fair/light

 There's something special about the mirrors in the bathroom at work. Nothing quite draws out the under-eye baggage quite like those fluorescent lights. You think you covered those babies up but your reflection during the morning work pee break makes you wonder if you need some sort of eye-bra to help you lift those bags. Add to some progressively smudgy eyeliner,  you may have started the day off at the ripe age of 26, but you're ending the day at the almost over-ripened age of 80.

FOTD #8: 'Cause Sometimes We Want Vengeance

I know this looks already did a guest appearance on Steph's blog a while back, but I like it so much I'm going to put it on my own blog too.

"Red/white looks" was the theme July's BBloggersCA guest posting cycle and I had just finished watching Director Park Chan-Wook's Symptathy for Lady Vengeance (which, along with the others in his Vengeance Trilogy, including Oldboy, is a must watch). So there you go, inspiration!

Mom's Asian Remedies

The consequences of having an Asian mother are plenty but not always pleasant. You might have to bear her Tiger Mother tenancies or force down Foo-Cha when you're ill. But for every time your mom gives you a good smack down with the Gie-Mo-So, you know you're lucky enough to have her in your corner when the going gets tough and she's the first to give you those haw flake wafer rounds (Saang-Ja-Baeng) to make that nasty soup go down a bit better.
