Yay or Nay: Sephora Stores

Sephora

I love Sephora. Don’t you?

When I was younger visiting Toys R’ Us was like heaven. All those toys, aisles and aisles of them! When I grew up bookstores and electronic stores and..ahem…office supply stores (yes, I have a thing for office supplies, sue me) held the same exciting appeal as Toys R’ Us did and actually still do. I actually have a Kindle 2 and a Sony Reader plus I have an Ipad on the way but I can honestly say there is nothing in the world like a stroll and a browse through Barnes and Noble. I love the quiet, peaceful aisles, the smell of new books combined with a hint of some flavored coffee drink from the cafe. In my minds eye, this must be what heaven is like if it exists.

Would You Buy It? Bobbi Brown Brightening Skincare

Bobbi Brown Brightening Skincare 54

“I believe beauty starts with healthy, glowing skin. Traveling through Asia, I’ve discovered that many brightening skincare lines do not address women’s immediate need to cover dark spots. I used my makeup artist’s perspective to create this simple 5-step regimen: It includes skincare to give you brighter, smoother and clearer skin over time—and treatment makeup to give you a beautiful, even complexion instantly.” -Bobbi Brown

I imagine by now we all know how the Muse feels about whiter, brighter skin. Good skin, starts with good skin care. If I learned anything in my makeup life, I learned that indulging in cheaper skin care just doesn’t cut it. Splurging on a good skincare regime is always in order as far as my recommendations go.

I can’t say I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing much of Bobbi Brown Skincare but the few pieces I have tried, have been amazing.

Introducing Bobbi’s ritual for fresh, radiant, lit-from-within skin, the Bobbi Brown Brightening Skincare.

Lush Lip Scrubs Review: Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub Review and Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub Review

in Lush

I admit, from time to time, I have joked about drinking a bottle of Lush Snow Fairy. Seriously, it’s terribly addicting stuff isn’t it? Don’t you want to kick and scream because it’s only available once a year? Why, Lush, Why?! Damnit we need our Snow Fairy year round! Why limit it to the Holidays? It’s just so terribly cruel!

Anyway….

As I said, I do admit a time or time I’ve been tempted to take a slug of my bottle. It just smells so sweet and fruity and gorgeous who wouldn’t be enticed to take a little sip. But, even as a beauty junkie, I draw the line at chugging back shower gel.

Now I can actually eat my Snow Fairy if I want, the new Lush Lip Scrubs make it possible.
