Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Punkie Night 2012 Fragrance Oil Review

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Punkie Night 2012 Fragrance Oil 1

I’ve had the oddest luck with some of BPAL’s Halloweenies this year. They’ve all gone kinda floral on me.

Cleansing Waters: Are They Necessary to Your Makeup Removal?

Cleansing Water

Cleansing Waters were trending quite a bit this Summer and a bit into Fall however, the hype has died down now. I’m always fascinated by readers, friends, etc…who tell me they remove their makeup at night with a cleansing wipe.

Chanel Allegorie Glossimer Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Chanel Allegorie Glossimer Lip gloss

Chanel Allegorie Glossimer Lipgloss ($29.50) is a new limited edition shade that launched with the Chanel Holiday 2012 Collection. This is a sheer, shimmering pink shade.

I typically favor a deeper lip look for the Holidays. I like to embrace shades of red (that I can pull off without looking like a clown) or super sparkly glosses. Sheer, nude shimmering shades of pink? Not so much!

Victoria’s Sedcuced by Metallics Holiday 2012

Victorias Secret Holiday 2012 Makeup

Victoria’s Seduced by Metallics is a Holiday 2012 Collection launching in store shortly (it’s already available online). I totally typed that Metallica, that’s what you get for listening to Fuel this early in the morning.

Don’t you find it kinda disappointing that Victoria Secret hasn’t released any real fancy collections lately? Or is that me? I know last year’s Holiday Collection was gorgeous….

I’ll keep hope alive for something posher as the Holidays draw closer. For now here’s a look at their Seduced by Metallics Collection!
