A Bit Late for the Holidays: The Glossier Black Tie Set

The Secret to My IG ‘Glow’: The BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll notice how I usually sport “a glow”, all due credit to one base product: the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream. I have raved and reco’d this product several times, but I’m only writing a proper review now! BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream in 06 Ginger … Continue reading

#OneBrandFace and Celeteque DermoCosmetics New Offerings

I may not say this often, but I’m thrilled for the local beauty scene. Local brands have been killing it with their product releases and one of the better ones out there has got to be Celeteque Dermocosmetics.

To kind of make up to you for this blog’s inactivity, allow me to share a special lineup of my favorite-est liquid lipsticks..It’s one beauty item which I have been consistently purchasing, nevermind that I have a good couple.
