MAC Ruffian Collection

MAC Ruffian Collection

The new MAC Ruffian Collection includes press on nails, something I haven’t seen from MAC before.

Will you indulge?

Cult New York designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais of Ruffian bring their infamous swagger to MAC in three exclusive Ruffian Manicures and Lipsticks. Each ready-to-wear set includes 24 nails that are pre-glued and in assorted sizes to ensure a couture-worthy fit. Touch and go with Spectator ovals, an inky spin on the classic French manicure; turn everything to gold with gilded tips à la Demilune; or push buttons in five-alarm Demoiselle talons. For the power pout: Ruffian Red, Ruffian Naked, a creamy beige, and Ruffian Gold, its 24-carat kin. A triple-threat of colour, texture and style.

Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Mist Review

Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Moisturizing Lotion Mist

You probably remember my love of Sana’s Hadanomy Collection from last year. This year, Sana has introduced a new selection of these hydrating skincare products with a new formula.

Placenta extract is supposedly huge in Japan at the moment. No great surprise as unusual ingredients including snail slime and bird’s nest are typical trendings in Asia.

I’m unsure exactly what sort of placenta is involved in the making of the Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Collection. The placenta is marine derived which according to a few sites is actually from the Hokkaido Salmon. Kinda sorta skeptical how much placenta actually goes into the makings of products like this though!

Either way Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Moisturizing Lotion Mist quickly made it onto my must buy list.

Take a look!

BSC Dissolve Spots Crystal Collagen Mask Review

BSC Dissolve Spots Crystal Collagen Mask

Here’s an interesting little dark spot corrector.

BSC Dissolve Spots Crystal Collagen Mask are small little disks that you can place on dark spots, discolorations, and freckles to fade them and lighten these areas.

The fact that they are location specific disks made me highly curious about trying them as you can apply them in the specific areas of where your dark spots or hyper pigmentation is. Rather cool that you can target those areas for lightening eh?

Let’s take a look!

E.L.F. Studio Cosmetics Lotion Wipes Review

E.L.F. Studio Cosmetics Lotion Wipes Review 1

I gotta say I’m always a little surprised that my sister doesn’t glide across the room when she walks. The girl applies body cream by the gallon everyday. Bless her soul.

I wish I was as diligent and I should be since I have drier skin but I feel so pressed for time in the morning that I sometimes skip out on the body cream and leave it until the evening or dare I say sometimes in the evenings I forget! Needless to say I should be moisturizing my body way more than I do…! If I used as much moisturizer on my body as I do on my face I’d probably glide too.

That’s why I gotta say that E.L.F. Lotion Wipes are kinda rocking my world at the moment. These are so freaking nifty.

Take a look!
