//product provided for editorial consideration//affiliate links are in use//

I abuse the hell out of my poor hair. Bleach, colour, blow drying and heat styling all take their toll in manifest and terrible ways. Dry strands, split ends, breakage, frizz are the symptoms my hair display, thanks to my need to feed my vanity.

Kenra Platinum Snail CC Cream to the rescue.

Yes. I said snail.

Affordable Beauty Treat - ColourPop Mile High Super Shock Eye Shadow Collection

Let us continue Anti - Valentine's Day Week with an affordable beauty treat. I was recently shopping the ColourPop website for a little gift for someone and while I was at it, I kind of bought myself a little something, as well.

Treat Yoself to a Farm House Fresh Whoopie! Cream Deluxe Boxed Gift Set

//this product was provided to me for editorial consideration//

It's Anti - Valentine's Day Week here on my dressing table. Why Anti Valentine's Day? Well, to be honest, I'm just not a fan. I don't judge anyone who loves Valentine's Day (do you, Boo!) but I'd be just as happy if the whole one day rigamarole was done away with and I think that there are plenty of people who agree with me. Rather than waiting for someone to come across, I say, treat yoself to a Farm House Fresh Whoopie! Cream Deluxe Boxed Gift Set, give yourself a pampering treat and take the pressure off.

Lancome Auda [City] in Paris Eye Shadow Palette

Really? I'm just talking about the Lancome Auda [City] in Paris Eye Shadow Palette now? In my defense, I bought this palette later in it's initial release and for a while, I thought that it was limited edition and sold out. Then I started seeing it, again so I brought it out, took pictures and finally decided to write it up.

Makeup Wars -- My Favorite Highlighters for Fair and Mature Skin

I teamed up with some of my fellow Makeup Wars bloggers for a discussion on our favorite highlighters. Please get comfy, grab a nice, hot beverage and let me entertain you.
One of the things that "they" say that mature beauties should not wear is face highlighter. We are told to give up all of that good shimmer, light, and glow once we reach a certain age. Why? Well, the experts will tell us that shimmer and glow are bad for mature skin because it settles into wrinkles and pores, enhances texture and makes us look older. 

Evian Natural Mineral Facial Spray for Home and Away

//product sent for editorial consideration//affiliate links are in use//

Evian Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray is a staple on my dressing table, nowadays. You know, I never thought that I'd say that about a spray can of water. I'm no stranger to facial mists, I have loved and used rosewater for years and I have other mists that I enjoy on a regular basis but water? In a pressurized canister? What's so special about this product and why would I keep it on my dressing table and in my handbag?

Dior Diroskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder

One of my greatest makeup regrets is letting the Dior Glowing Gardens pink highlighter from their spring 2016 collection get away from me. I did my usual gotta think about it, first dance when it was available and when I went back to buy it, it was all gone. Snooze, I lose. Happily, Dior took pity on me and released a beautiful consolation prize to help soothe my wounded spirit.
