Influenster #Mysterybrand VoxBox

I've been having mail issues the past few weeks, so after hunting down the post office that had my mail, I finally received a few packages, including my Mystery Brand VoxBox.

L'Oreal, who owns over 25 global beauty companies, has teamed up with Influenster to give us a sneak peak at their newest product line to help repair damaged hair. The catch? We don't know the brand!

Real Techniques Core Collection: Review

There was a time where you would browse forums or Facebook groups and everyone was talking about the Real Techniques brushes and how to get their hands on a set in Canada. It seemed like the only store that carried them were constantly sold out. I wanted to know what the fuss was about, but didn't have the patience to stalk the stocking people at the store. Needless to say, when I was given the opportunity to try these brushes, I jumped on it and I'm quite happy that I did!

Turquoise Eyes

Because I work in an office, I usually keep my makeup pretty simple. However I've decided that I'm going to try to spice it up a little on Fridays. Need to have some fun!

The hair saver: Batiste Dry Shampoo

We've all heard it, it's not good to wash your hair everyday. But what are you to do if your hair seems to get greasy & oily faster than most? Fake it by using a dry shampoo.

It's a woman's secret weapon. It'll help extend a blow-out, leave your hair looking fresh by banishing greasy-looking roots and add volume and texture.

You can often find dry shampoo in an aerosol can or in a powdered form, much like baby powder. Most are white, which are usually pretty easy to blend in, however if you have dark hair, it can make your hair look ashy if not properly blended.

NotD - Essie On a Silver Platter

Essie's Encrusted Treasure collection came out just before Christmas and it had me, like so many, swooning over the colours. Who can blame us? The collection features polishes with bar glitter, regular (gorgeous) glitter, texture, and a texture + glitter. With all that glitter, it was hard to miss. I've previously posted my thoughts on another Encrusted Treasure polish, Belugaria. You can see that post here.

I purchased On a Silver Platter as soon as I seen it in stores. It was love at first sight.
