If…

I love – love – the look of sleepy smudged eyeliner. There’s something about it that looks so inexplicably devilish, an effortless touch of je nes sais quoi that looks wild and untamed. The party hasn’t ended yet, it seems to say. I’m off to the after-party of the after-party. But, of course, actually sleeping in one’s makeup is a fairly…

Clinique Voluptuous Violet Chubby Stick

I feel like I’ve written reams and reams about Clinique Chubby Sticks before – they were the first lip crayons I tried and the source of my ongoing love affair with all things lip crayon, so forgive me if this wee little chat about Clinique Voluptuous Violet Chubby Stick covers a lot of existing territory.

Clinique Chubby Sticks are wind-up lip crayons with…

Color Club East Austin nail polish swatch & review

Swatched: @ColorClubNail East Austin nail polish - #notd #bbloggers

Color Club East Austin nail polish

Color Club East Austin nail polish

Is this the perfect coral nail polish? Yes. Yes! Color Club East Austin nail polish is the coral lacquer I’ve been searching for for years: not too orange, not too pink, not too neon, not too pastel. It’s a coral in perfect balance, with enough of a colourful kick to pop against my skin.

The formula of East Austin was reasonably good for a pastel, with just two…

Sukin BioNatural Skin Oil
