Sana Hiaruronsan Moisture Gel Review

If you’re a Japanese makeup and skincare junkie like me you’re probably very familiar with a brand called Sana.  Sana has a slew of little sub brands they put out such as Excel, Maikohan, Etc….

Honestly, some of their sub brands have really gimmicky products but I end up buying them because the packaging and advertisement is just too blooming cute to resist.

The most recent Sana release caught my eye right away because again I was drawn in by that uber sweet packaging that I find so hard to resist. Always expecting to not really be too surprised when something from Sana is cute but not necessarily great quality I braced myself for a let down.

Dr. Jart Ice Cooler Review

It’s probably a little too late for me to enjoy the full benefits of Dr. Jart Ice Cooler but I thought I’d review anyway for those who have large pores and are looking for a way to tighten them.

IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody Review and Swatches

Oooooo chicas let me tell you.  It’s icy cold outside.   It’s been a weird few days in my little city as the weather is more Winter than Fall.   But we had a few warm Fall days around these parts and lord knows it’s my very fav time of the year.

I’m celebrating Fall with Isadora Bohemian Rhapsody today.   It’s a rather fab little collection that’s inexpensive and quite sitting with the season plus it carries the name of my very favorite song from Queen what more could a girl want?  Did I ever tell you about my Freddy Mercury obsession?  Wait…maybe we’ll skip that chat otherwise we’ll never get to the review.

What was I saying? Oh yes the IsaDora Bohemian Rhapsody Collection!

Bourjois Paris Coup de Theatre Mascara Review

This morning the Muse is raking her brain trying to remember the first time she tried Bourjois Paris Corps Mascara. Gosh, it had to be ten years ago at least. Do you guys remember it? It was a dual mascara with a primer on one side and a mascara on the other. Actually at the time the entire idea and design was unique to anything anyone had out on the market.

Anyway….

Reason I’m taking my little trip down memory lane today is because I’ve been test driving the brand new Bourjois Paris Corps de Theatre 2 in 1 Mascara and loving all over it. For the longest time Bourjois was my go to brand for great mascara and it’s nice to see them release something new.

VOV Castledew Eyeshadow Review

Lordie I don’t think I’ve blogged the joys of VOV Castledrew Eye Shadow yet.  How remiss of me not to introduce you to these tiny little pots of funky color that are so absurdly inexpensive you won’t believe it.

VOV is a Korean brand with a slew of cute little finds that are incredibly inexpensive but manage to pack alot of quality.  Like most Korean brands it’s all the quality at a fraction of the cost.   If you’re having a lem or two after my post I suggest checking out E-bay to see what deals are hanging out.
