Sonia Kashuk Spring Awakenings Face Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Sonia Kashuk Spring Awakenings Face Palette 024

I used to be one of those girls that believed the perfect Summer eye look started and ended with various shades of aqua.

Sadly, I had to grow up and I can’t quite pull off aqua as well as I once could.

Nowadays I’m all about warm hues of brown and gold for Summer and various shades of softer peach, coral, and orange.

The new Sonia Kashuk Spring Awakenings Face Palette is my perfect pick for Spring/Summer looks.

Plus, dude, totally gives me Sophia kinda moments….

Beauty Most Unusual: Barbie’s Take On Puberty Circa 1970

Growing Up Skipper

I thought it was funny and a bit too grown up for little girl’s when one of Matte’s Monster High Dolls literally waxed poetry about her hairiness and how she had to tame it with a razor (CLICK!).

But I’m always up for something equally fabulous which is what led to my recent discovery of a 1970 Barbie Doll, who…has something very interesting to show you.

Jump!

Musings of the Day: How FAR Are You Willing to Go For Beauty?

Have you met Queenie? That’s her behind the yellow mask there. She’s one of those inspirational people that makes you remember why you love life so much.

What’s the mask for?

Well, she’s having a skin whitening injection which is a popular since early 2010 in Taiwan and Hong Kong. It similar to a Botox injection in someways but rather than lifting skin it offers a way to whiten it temporarily.

Honestly, at prices that go from $900-$1500 I wouldn’t be so inclined to do it for mere temporary results.

Chances are you won’t see whitening injections in the US anytime since the craze for whiter skin isn’t one we embrace in the Western market plus since the local Asian governments don’t actually place restrictions on the treatments and they are done in easy to access place such as a beauty salon, well, I doubt that would go over big here but…

How FAR are you willing to go for beauty?
