Holiday 2016 Beauty Advent Calendars

Advent Calendars used to be a childish gimmick reserved for confectionary and toy brands, but thank heavens for the handful of beauty brands who started releasing them a few years ago because now they are one of the HOTTEST gifts on the market.

I’ve been trialling the NARS Makeup Removing Water which is a luxe option on the scale of makeup removers. Does the extra pennies get you a better clean? My review tells you.  Continue Reading
