Guest Post: CREAM BLUSH CRAZY ft Zoe

Hi! I'm Zoƫ and I blog over at Writing Whimsy where you would quickly learn a few things about me: I love unicorns, purple nail polish, and cream blushes. Obviously one of my favourite posts on Jenn's blog is her Glitter Unicorns one, but today I've gone with sharing four great cream blushes, two budget and two high end.

Guest Post: L'Oreal Color Riche Wet Quads ft Alicia

And here is Alicia, who I have been following since the first day makeup appealed to me. Extra points go to her for being Canadian.

Hey Everyone, 

I'm so excited to be filling in for Jenn while she is away on vacation. Jenn, one of my favourite fellow Canadian bloggers, has done several amazing guest posts on my blog, Funny Face Beauty, so I am more than happy to return the favour. 

While I am always looking for the next best deal when it comes to hoarding buying makeup products, I have never been a big fan of drugstore eyeshadows. Often dry and under pigmented, I've come to the conclusion that I would rather spend my money on one good high-end eyeshadow palette or quad, than waste it on several mediocre drugstore palettes. Well, drugstore lovers unite, because I have finally found a drugstore shadow that can stand toe-to-toe with its higher-end rivals: L'Oreal's new 'Colour Riche Wet Quads'

Getting Gel Nails at Home*

*Press Samples

l'oreal extraordinaire gel-lacque 1-2-3 primer and glaze kit review swatch

You already know what a nail noob I am. Shortly after declaring this fact loudly and not so proudly to the world, L'Oreal dared me by saying, "Come on...you can't be that bad?!" and taunted me with their new Extraordinaire Gel-Lacque 1-2-3 Polish* line. I wanted to laugh in their face and say "YES I AM! and not even you, L'Oreal, can save me" but it's possible I might have met something that even I can't mess up.

Guest Post: Bright Summer Gradient Nails ft. Jayne

Meet Jayne, one of the bloggers who first encouraged me to start blogging! If her nail aren't the most enviable, then I'm not sure who's are.

Thank you Jenn for letting me hijack A Beautiful Zen for just one beautiful blog post! One thing you all don't get to see a lot of are Jenn's nails so pretend my hands are hers today.

Guest Post: Makeup Brushes & Purchasing Philosophy ft. Quinn

Hey dudes, its Quinn's turn up on the blog. If you haven't been following her already why NOT?

I love reading about the background of brands; not so much about historical dates and timelines (snore) but more about the brands specialties, and how they (hand)make their products in a delicate and detailed manner. I have watched videos from how Diptyque candles are made, to how diamonds are selected, to the Hermes scarf process (and I agree with comments about the price once you understand the process, $500 becomeswell, if not palatable, at least somewhat comprehensible.)

My newest obsession is makeup brushes.
