    As a lip gloss junkie, I have tried just about every gloss  on the planet and probably even some there are from other worlds. I live for a great gloss and usually carry about six to seven different glosses around in my clutch on any given day. So you can imagine how excited I was when I received the new Shine Blast glosses from CoverGirl! It was like Christmas morning for a beauty editor -a box of sweet lip glosses – its gets no better!

    I received two glosses along with the rest of my beauty bounty. Here is my review of both glosses: Continue Reading

    Lauren_Luke_makeupI was recently introduced to the cosmetic artistry of Lauren Luke through Patrice Yursik, founder of Afrobella.com - one of my FAVORITE blogs! When I visited the site, I immediately fell in love with the gorgeous palettes and was even more impressed by Lauren’s fun yet informative makeup tutorials. She makes painting face look like connecting the dots. She is fun to watch, easy to follow and a great resource for professionals and beauty novices alike. Every week, I will be uploading her latest tutorial so you can learn the hottest beauty looks and how to take them straight from the pages of your favorite magazines and right onto your very own gorgeous canvas!

    This first tutorial is all about the high fashion, avante garde look Beyonce recently deubted in her latest video for “Video Phone“. This bold look reminded me of the high concept beauty found on the pages of Italian Vogue or on the runways in Rio de Janeiro. I LOVE it and can’t wait to share Lauren’s excellent tutorial on how to achieve this stunning look on your own.

  • Tarina Tarantino Debuts New Color Collection at Sephora

    TarinaTarantinoOMG! How do I live for Tarina Tarantino. As someone who believes that all things should be sparkly, glimmering and shimmery, she is my queen and the ruler of my world. I first became aware of Tarina when I spotted one of her gorgeous luxe renditions of Hello Kitty! Miss Kitty was decked out in pink crystals and floated around the neck of some insanely beautiful celebrity like a brilliant diamond pendant. I had to have it. So thus began my obsession with Tarina and her fabulous fantastical take on all things glamour and beauty. So, now that she has launched her amazing new makeup up collection with Sephora – I know I will be an avid fan and supporter of her products. I am sure I will be reviewing her lip glosses and other products shortly so check back in the coming weeks for my product review of Miss Tarina – the Goddess of Sparkle!
