REVIEW: Sephora Favorites ‘Give Me More Lip’

I have to say, I was pumped when I first heard about this set. A mix of full-size and mini lippies of various brands from Sephora? I’m down. While $59 isn’t exactly pocket change, it’s actually a great value for all the product you’re getting.

REVIEW: Stila Cosmetics Eternally Yours Liquid Lipstick Set

Another installation to the holiday kit reviews. Stila’s Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick has never been as wildly popular as other brands out ther (think Anastasia Beverly Hills or even NYX Cosmetics).

I’ll put the emphasis on “little.” While this kit doesn’t necessarily offer any less product than others, they definitely didn’t glamour up … Continue reading REVIEW: Stila Cosmetics Eternally Yours Liquid Lipstick Set

Prime(r) Time

Face, eyelid, lash, and lip primers. Oh my! From my experience, I find a lot of women aren’t quite sure what to do with al these primers. Do I really need them? What do they do? Which one should I choose? As primers are a “relatively” new concept to many, it’s completely understandable that these foreign things might first seem like a mere gimmick brought … Continue reading Prime(r) Time
