MAC Lip Conditioner + Lavender Review, Swatches, Photos

I haven’t actually ever tried MAC Lip Conditioner outside the tinted ones. Just wanted to throw that out there before you started reading this review.

How about you? Anyone try the transparent, colorless versions? Dunno why I never indulged considering I love the tinted ones!

Thanks to MAC Cham Pale I get my chance to try out the MAC Lip Conditioner + Lavender.

Smashbox In Bloom Spring 2011

I absolutely adore the promo model’s image for the Smashbox In Bloom Spring 2011 Collection. It’s so fresh and clean, very natural for Spring with a minimalist finish but just the right amount of makeup to flatter.

But I couldn’t help but wonder how they got such a great eye look from the Smashbox In Bloom Eye Palette which contains some really smoky shades. This is one reason you probably should never depend on stock imagery to make your makeup choices as I’m guessing the palette looks way better in the flesh than it does in the promo shot.

Lush Dr. Peppermint Shampoo Bar Review, Photos

In my freshman year of high school I went to our Halloween bash dressed as the Demon. No worries, I wasn’t alone, Starchild, Catman, and Spaceman were all my wingwomen. Actually there was a little bickering involved about who would be the Starchild, you know, I’ve always wanted to be Paul Stanley when I grew up…but I figured Gene Simmons was the next best thing.

Needless to say the costumes didn’t go over big with the nuns at our private catholic girl’s high school but we had fun none the less. Till this day KISS still rocks my adult life, my sister says I was born in the wrong era….

Moral of the story? Couldn’t help but hum Dr Love as I was washing my hair this morning with a little Lush Dr Peppermint thus my KISS reference eh?

The Doctor is in….
