Bring Some Shimmer into Your Holidays-Manna Kadar Sheer Glow

Winter is the time when the luster in the skin doesn't lust anymore.  Skin looks ghostly, yet you don't want to look darkly tan like a piece of beef jerky.  All you really need to do is add some glow.  Don't know what to use?  Here is a suggestion, try Manna Kadar Sheer Glow in Movie Star ($29USD).

I am on Google Plus

I don't know if I am going to regret this.  I am on Google + and honestly for a person who is spreading herself thin enough via Twitter and Pinterest and other beauty blog venues; this is one place where the last layer of me will be spread.  I am on Google plus and once I get that weirdo follower thinking my nude eyeshadows are an invitation to see me nude, I will delete myself.  But for now for you beauty bloggers, just click the icon to follow.

Lip Products Worth the Attention of the World by Manna Kadar

Just earlier this year in January I reviewed Manna Kadar Cosmetics in this post.  Now, in just a few months and at the closing of the year, the line has grown into a well-respected cosmetic line with a complete array of high quality products.  The line has also formed a partnership with The Ellen Show.  (Ellen knows what is good!)

Analyzing the Perfect Eyeshadow Application

My obsession with creating the shape and depth to the eyes stems from the fact that my eyes aren't shaped in the typical way that beauty magazines portray eyeshadow application: brow bone, crease, lid.  The areas are all apparent but not well defined.  Learning how to adapt many of the methods can be a frustrating experience at times but once learned, the moment becomes one of those makeup memory moments.

Some Green Eyeliners for Your Holiday Makeup

These are just some of the green eyeliners I have that would look good for those special holiday parties and get-together. None of them are too outrageous but can be if that is your style.  The price range varies from drugstore affordable to high end chic.  Here are the greens I recommend.

A Moisturizer Worthy Enough for the Three Wise Men-Defend by Purelement Naturals

If the three wise men ever carried a beauty product while crossing the desert sands following the star to Bethlehem, it would have been Defend Argan Moisturizer Oil ($48USD) by Purelement Naturals. Who is to say this wasn't offered to the blessed one? After all it contains argan oil (liquid gold), frankincense, and myrrh.  No one ever mentioned how dry and aging the three wise men looked.  With this possibility in mind, I tried out this worthy oil and wondered could it become a Holy Grail?

Light Diffusion Packed Inside a Tube - Nanoblur

When I had read about Nanoblur on various blogs, I confess my curiosity had been tickled.  I wanted to try this product but found it only available in Europe and Canada.  I cursed like a sailor!  But guess what? It will be available in the U.S. in December for $19.95.  Will it be worth it?

Look Ravishing with Addixt'n Cosmetics Lipgloss

Addixt'n Cosmetics is a new line that has some great products.  I am sure you have heard my many raves of their gel liner and if not, you can read about them here.  I don't mean to emphasize my love for only their liners, after all the company does offer a complete line of cosmetics.  One product that I recently tried is one of their lipglosses.

Prestige Doesn't Have to Cost an Arm and a Leg

Recently, I was contacted by Prestige Cosmetics to try some of their products. Of course, I jumped at the chance!  I like their products and I find the colors they have are fashion forward and wearable.  I also admire the line to have survived over 30 years in business which is now inundated with more cosmetic than ever.

Autographing My Eyes

Me and eyeliner go together like chocolate chips and vanilla ice cream.  We are a sweet pair and without my eyeliners or my collection of eyeliners, I would be one lost soul.  So when I saw these pencil eyeliners at Sephora, I reasoned with myself to get them since I don't have anything from Kat von D.  Good reason right?

November Nails-OPI Give Me Moor! and Others

I can't believe it is November already!  Next I will be saying Happy New Year and I will be closer to old age! Before all that happens I decided to start the month with nail polish.  I had this polish for about a year but never opened it and never wondered about it until now.
