Gift idea for the beauty in YOUR life! Villianess Warming Body Cream – Dulce En Fuego: Whipped (Sugar & Chocolate)

I am a gourmand fragrance fan-I love to smell like things that are good enough to eat (let your mind go where it wants).  When I saw this duo, I knew I had to have-it reminds me of cinnamon and sugar doughnuts that I used to buy off the street in South Korea or get at the Ex.  It’s that good.

I’m sure the beauty in your life would love to smell delicious!

What it is:

Velvety Body Cream – Warming
Whipped! body creme is thick and stiff, yet light and quite soluble – much like edible whipped heavy cream.

A heavy moisture content for your dry skin, enough oils to create a breathable emollient barrier, and has a velvety-soft afterfeel. You’ll love it.
Size: 170 g

What it is:

Extra-decadent cherry kernel oil, antioxidant rich grapeseed oil, light coconut oil, and our favourite luxury mango butter.

SCENT: Musky bitter chocolate sweetened with vanilla and touches of citrus then positively inflamed with black pepper and nutmeg.

Warming Body Cream-Dulce En Fuego: Whipped (Sugar & Chocolate) retails for $15.75 CAD and can be purchased on Glymm.com or villianess.net.

*please note-they actually JUST POSTED a peppermint/candy cane fragrance.*

Gift ideas for the beauty in YOUR life- websites to shop!

Hey not everyone loves the thrill of shopping-especially during the busy holiday season.  If you’re the type of person who would rather sit in front of the _______ (insert your favorite place here) fireplace, television, Xbox, then how about using your mouse to shop for the beauties on your list?

Some of my favorite websites for beauty products:

The Shopping Channel.com You can’t go wrong here.  They have EVERYTHING-not just beauty.  Prices are competitive and shipping is QUICK.  I have bought everything from sheets to footwear to apparel to jewelry to makeup and have rarely been disappointed.  The return policy is a snap and customer service is hassle free!

ebeauty.ca  In my opinion, this is the Shopping Channel for beauty products.  Great selection, fantastic pricing, and terrific promotions (check out my post on their gift bag). This site has items that I’ve never heard of until I’ve clicked!  Quick shipping and easy returns.

nailpolishcanada.com  This is for all the nail polish people! I didn’t know there were that many different kinds of polish and nail accessories until I visited this site.  Best of all-this site is up on all the latest trends, has great pricing, and fast shipping.  They will occasionally host fantastic contests with drool-worthy prizes!  P.S. This is the site to visit if you’re looking for ‘popular’ polish or polish not easily accessible in Canada.

Glymm.com  This is a subscription box service that also has an online store (with full size products from the Glymm box).  I like this site because they have unique items that I wouldn’t know of unless I was specifically looking for them.  Shipping is not as quick as I would like but they manage in a decent amount of time.  Check this site for ‘luxury’ beauty products.

There you have it…some of my favorite sites to make crossing the names off of your gift list even easier!  Even though the selection is great and shipping IS quick, don’t delay.  The holidays are practically here!

Tweet your hilarious/crazy advice to @PlaytexGG for a chance at $1000! It pays to have your period!

Okay so maybe that title is a bit extreme but you COULD win a $1000 Visa Gift Card by taking 5 minutes or less out of your day….read on:

 

 

To ensure women have all the facts so they can feel comfortable and protected during their time of the month, Playtex® Gentle Glide® 360 ͦ™ Tampons is hosting a twitter contest about advice they were given when they first got their period.  From October 22nd to November 22nd, Canadian women are being asked to tweet the hilarious advice they were given to @PlaytexGG using #PlayOn for a chance to win a $1,000 Visa gift card.  Women can tweet once per day to increase their chances of winning, and there will be giveaways happening throughout the contest too!  The official contest rules can be found here: http://www.playtextampons.ca/terms_playtexgg.aspx

What kind of crazy advice were you given? 

I wasn’t necessarily given any ‘crazy’ advice but this may shock you-my mom didn’t talk to me about my period.  Instead, she sent me to a class with the school nurse and other girls in my grade.  We watched a video (from the 1960’s) and then wrote down questions on a piece of paper.  The piece of paper was folded twice and put into a bowl.  The nurse then sat us in a circle and picked each folded paper out of the bowl, read the question aloud and then answered it.  Then we went home!

I thought about that when I heard about this contest and that just seems so ‘far out’ to me.  I mean, why wouldn’t I just have a conversation?  I’m wondering if any of you out there with almost teenage daughters know if the school still offers these “classes.”  Weird, right?

Anyway, why are you still reading this? Get to tweeting!

Tool Talk- Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush

I rarely (if ever) talk too much about my brushes.  The main reason for that is the majority of them aren’t all that special.  I have a few “special” brushes-some that I have overpaid for (MAC 187) and some that I have waited entirely too long for (Sigma F82) only to have them disappoint in more than one manner.

Introducing the Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush

I was reading Alicia’s blog and she mentioned the UD Good Karma brush.  Here’s what she said about it AND I QUOTE (ahem)

“This medium sized, synthetic brush is the perfect brush for blending foundation into the skin. Using small circular motions, the brush’s dense head “flawlessly applies, buffs and blurs” your foundation, leaving no streak marks or lines of ‘de-markation’.  While the Optical Blurring Brush is lauded as a foundation brush, I have also been using it to apply my bronzer and blush, and find that it works well with both liquid and powder products. Like all of Urban Decay’s products, this brush is vegan and completely cruelty-free.”

And from Sephora.ca:

“Developed for use with Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Foundation, this brush picks up and distributes all formulations from liquid to cream to powder makeup better than a sponge. The “optical blurring” comes in when you buff out your makeup: instead of a streaky finish from fingers or a sponge, buffing disperses the light-diffusing particles in Naked Skin and seemingly fine lines disappear. It’s blending ability makes it ideal for mature skin, as it creates a smooth, youthful-looking appearance. The medium-large brush with densely packed hairs has a domed top that maneuvers nicely around the face, making it suitable for under the eye, around the nose, and around the brow area.”

I picked up this brush 2 days before I went on vacation and took it with me.

I’m sure glad I did!  I am loving this brush and have no complaints!

It’s wonderful for my liquid foundation and it has the perfect amount of flexibility for me-it’s not completely flexible but not incredibly stiff or inflexible.  The price point doesn’t make my wallet burst into flames either!  I’ve used it with my bronzers like Alicia suggested but I prefer it for my liquid foundation at the mo’  Perhaps in the near future, I will purchase another with the intent of that brush being exclusively for powders-hey at $26.00 CAD, I can get another.

Another “positive”-great reviews on sephora.com

So like I said, I don’t tool talk often, but I had to tell you about this brush.  It’s the right price and gives fabulous face!  BUY IT!

Oh, one more thing-check Alicia’s review here-it made her September favorites.
