Urban Decay Makeup Setting Sprays New 2016 Products

Makeup Setting Sprays are an essential part of my makeup routine. Urban Decay make some of the best and have been since their introduction about 6 years ago. I’ve had a version of every single one of their packaging releases, and it was only in 2013 that they went through their last update, but 3 years on Urban Decay are preparing to roll-out their latest packaging and they have some new releases in the works too.  Continue Reading

Too Faced Cosmetics Born This Way Foundation
In news that has left cruelty-free and vegan beauty fans across the globe shattered, it’s been announced that Estée Lauder Companies will be taking ownership of beloved cruelty-free brand Too Faced Cosmetics. This news isn’t just big for the cruelty-free market, it’s actually huge for the entire beauty industry. We are talking big, big money and Too Faced swear that their cruelty-free status will be upheld. But will it really? Continue Reading

Brooke Shields x MAC Cosmetics

I honestly think MAC Cosmetics are picking stranger and stranger people to collaborate with. The latest is Brooke Shields, which would have been fitting for the actress, author, and former model about 20 years ago but now? I’m just not so sure.

Back in the day Brooke was a gorgeous model and these days she is still a striking woman. I loved her in Suddenly Susan but she isn’t a person I would think of when it comes to remarkable style or gorgeous facial features. While her eyebrows have always been a bit of a topic amongst beauty watchers, no one can deny that her big, dark brows are now completely on-trend. So what does this mean for an entire cosmetic collection created in part by her? Let’s take a closer look. Continue Reading

NARS Madison Avenue NYC Store

NARS is expanding their empire by opening two more freestanding stores this month. The new retail spaces are hitting both the east and west coast of the USA, with a move that they hope will deepen the relationship with their makeup artist clientele. Even though I personally am not a makeup artist, I do find that a dedicated retail space for a brand allows me to shop more strategically instead of being overcome with excitement (like what I experience in Sephora) so I can understand why this make appeal more to a makeup artist.

Both stores were designed by Francois Nars (yep, the guy behind the brand) and Fabien Baron of New York design firm Baron & Baron. A consistent design has been implemented across the stores but each have incorporated their own twist by adapting features to fit the city and space. Those that have followed the NARS brand for some time (like me) will know that makeup is not Nars’ one true love – he’s a lover of all forms of art. His love for beautiful photography and books will be showcased in “François’ Favorite Things,”a section exclusive to the free-standing stores that offers an eclectic mix of objects that have inspired Mr Nars. All will be available for purchase and rotated quarterly.

These new stores could be a sign that NARS is looking to expand elsewhere (perhaps, Australia?!?) but for now we’ll take a closer look at what you’ll find in the new USA stores.  Continue Reading

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
