Lush Cosmetics Gorgeous Moisturizer Review

As I blogger I tend to test WAY too much makeup, skincare, fragrance, and beauty bits and bobs. One thing I never did get into testing was skincare. For a very long time, I avoided trying out new lotions and potions because I always blamed my great skin on Lush Cosmetics and was quite happy with my skincare regime from them.

Lush Cosmetics Gorgeous Moisturizer 1

About a year and a half into my adventures on Musings I started to testing way too much skincare from various brands. I was switching up my moisturizer, my toner, and just about everything else. I dunno what prompted me to cheat on Lush when I was so very die hard, faithful to them for such a long time……

Last month I realized that I needed to embraced my Lush again because my skin just wasn’t looking as great as it did when I was using it. Dullness, oily forehead, and even tiny break outs on my jaw line were some of the problems I had been experiencing after leaving my beloved Lush behind.

Although I’ve shared with you my secrets of Lush in the past, I’ve never really sat down and reviewed the items I’ve spoken about in past posts and I think that needs to be changed right now.

Because everyone should about the joys of great skin care.

Sephora by OPI Havana Nights Mini Collection

I wanna go to Havana someday.

I’ve traveled alot in my day but I’ve never been to Havana. Do you think it’s all Copacabana-like with Lola, Rico, and Tony? God, I hope so. I’d dance the night away with yellow feathers in my hair, you can be damn sure of that!

Until I get to Havana, I’ll have to settle for the Sephora by OPI Havana Nights Mini Collection to give me that sizzle of Cuban heat!

Stila Custom Color Blush Review and Swatches

Ahhhh pink. For a long time it was my signature shade of choice. Pink always gives my cheeks a youthful glow so I’m all over it like white on rice. The Stila Fall Collection 2010 has released and it’s all about that perfect shade of color for cheeks.

Now, I don’t really commonly associate the shade of pink with Fall but I can’t deny that I’m really loving hard on the Stila Custom Color Blush.

Tarina Tarantino continues to impress with her Sephora Collection by introducing two new eye primers. Rather delightful how updated they are keeping this collection considering Kat Von D own collection only gets seasonal revamps. Since it’s release Tarina’s line has seen updates three to four times already with a few limited edition pieces thrown in the mix of things.

Eye primer junkies may be interested in her new primers!
