Best new beauty products of November 2014

I don’t want to point it out but guys, it’s the end of November already. Can you smell Christmas? Can you hear those New Years fireworks? They are right around the corner so before the madness ensues I want to show you some of my new favourite products to end the season.

November isn’t a key time for product launches but I still had 31 new beauties land on my desk, most of which were colour cosmetics and nail collections. The change of season is the perfect time to get yourself some new colourful toys to use over the festive season and with Black Friday/Cyber Monday coming up, you’ll probably be able to get them a lot cheaper. Oh and don’t forget to check back for our ultimate sale shopping guides for the big weekend! Continue Reading

I don’t know what it is this week but lips are getting my fullest attention right now. Is it just me or is there something awesome about a perfectly painted lip? More specifically, a bright or bold coloured one.

First it was the dramatic blue lip at Richard Chai, then I showed you red lips from Napoleon Perdis … and now it is this beautiful pink number created by Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman for the Luca Luca show at NYFW.

Bold lip, great skin, flowy hair. I think this entire look is stunning. So, what does the creator have to say about it?

“I was inspired by the designer’s color palette and chose shades and textures that would bring out the essence of the entire collection,”

“It reminded me of the sophistication of an Italian Vogue story I’d seen with girls that looked very luxurious, young and polished.  The slightly transparent yet glossy purple eye works beautifully with the lip. It’s glamorous yet approachable.”

– Gucci Westman, Global Artsitic Director for Revlon

I have been a bit of a sooky Sally ever since New York got to have the GREATEST event called Vogue Fashion’s Night Out a couple weeks ago on September 10. It is basically a massive shopping event that is held all over the city at fashion houses, boutiques, salons, spas and stores to offer everything from discounts, services and giveaways (there are simultaneous events held in other cities around the world but New York is the BIG one). One of the biggest trends and publicity stunts of Fashion Night Out is the ever elusive Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
