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!

Clinique Superbalanced Powder Bronzer Review & Swatches

Clinique Superbalanced Powder Bronzer with Bag

Clinique takes the packaging concept behind its Superbalanced Powder Makeup and incorporates it into their new Superbalanced Powder Bronzer.

At the time of Superbalanced Powder’s release, I do believe that this style packaging was an entirely new concept. A few brands have since adapted it as well such as NYX with their grinder blushers. I’m unsure how folks feel about “grinding” their own powder but I generally like the idea. It allows you a perfectly portioned amount, no more, no less plus since the formula is a pressed “puck” so to speak it allows the product to remain fresher for longer since you’re grinding off a little at a time.

Let’s take a peek at the new Clinique Superbalanced Powder Bronzer.
