Blast from the Beauty Past: The Lip Collection by Bourjois Paris

The Lip Collection by Bourjois Paris

I used to love doing a Ghosts from Christmas Past Collections on Musings. But my stash has grown so much that it proves impossible to remember what was from a Holiday Collection and what wasn’t. I’d love an intern to catalog my entire stash for me, now that, would be brilliant.

KATE Powderless Liquid for Cover Foundation Review & Swatches

KATE Powderless Liquid for Cover Foundation

I typically don’t like cream to powder products but I was interested to try this after seeing swatches online as the formula looks quite nice.

Here are some of my thoughts!
