When Gummy first tried the Burberry First Kiss Fresh Glow lip Balms*, I was skeptical about these. But she's tried them, and I've tried them, and we both agree these are great!

Strange Conclusions with Thierry Mugler's Alien*

thierry mugler alien eau de parfum perfume review

An application of Thierry Mugler's Alien* ($96CDN, 30ml/ $98CDN for the 40ml LE 10th Anniversary Bottle) is nothing less than a bazaar scent experience. The amethyst inspired bottle houses an Oriental Woody fragrance that is as foreign as its name.

Burberry Khaki Green

burberry wet & dry shadow khaki green swatch review

It's interesting that my tastes still change over time in leaps and bounds and not just by degrees. Maybe because I became comfortable using the more cool toned Dior holiday palette (review to come) or maybe for some other reason, but I'm liking the cooler tone of Burberry's Khaki Green ($33CDN, 0.09oz) eyeshadow even though I've traditionally favoured warmer shades.

My Burberry Eau de Toilette* - A Brief History Lesson

*Press sample
My Burberry Eau de Toilette perfume review

Certain thing have maintained their importance even as periods change; the Burberry trench is one such item. Through a brief google-fest, I learned so many interesting historic facts about Burberry and their trench coats. Though a $1500 jacket isn't affordable the My Burberry Eau de Toilette* ($80CDN for 50ml, $105CDN for 90ml) which takes inspiration from the house's trench is more easily attainable and a neat way to take part in some of that history.
