Victoria’s Secret Midnight Glamour Luminous Highlighting Powder Review, Swatches, Photos

They’ll come a day or days in your makeup life when you have to admit to yourself that it’s all about the packaging and the presentation, not necessarily the actual makeup. If you’re in denial about this fact, it’s ok, we’ve all been there.

In the case of Victoria’s Secret Midnight Glamour Luminous Highlighting Powder, it’s all about the packaging and presentation and sadly not so much about the actual makeup and lucky enough I’m not in denial about this.


I’m willingly to admit the powder isn’t what caught my eye first nor will it be what holds my attention long after.

Bare Minerals Body Lingerie Review and Swatches

There comes a time in your life where 1. You admit you don’t need more shimmer and 2. you’re too damn old for it.

That time has not come for me yet (nor will it ever).

BRING the shimmer, bring the sparkle, gimme glitter, gimme shine.

I love it so. Particularly for the Holidays!

Bare Minerals Body Lingerie Luminous Body Shimmer is the newest shimmer-fess to launch on the Holiday scene. Best thing about it? Flirty packaging and a great price tag particularly when you’re feeling the love and desire for more expensive brands that put out this type of product for dozens of dollars more.

Check it!


The Body Shop Smoke & Fire Collection Review, Swatches, Photos The Body Shop Fall 2010

I can’t believe how deep we are into Fall already.  I feel like yesterday was Summer. Seriously, last week I had my AC on because it was so warm and this week I have my heat on because it’s so much cooler in the evening.

Nothing captured Fall this year for me like The Body Shop Smoke & Mirrors Collection. The face powder alone were enough to send me into fits of joy! Honestly, The Body Shop releases some killer limited edition sets and the new Smoke & Mirrors Collection for Fall 2010 happens to be one of this collections that has some incredible offerings that you should be hauling for a warm, Fall look.

With the Holidays in our face so incredibly quickly this year, it’s nice to step back and look at a bit of Fall.
