If I were to police makeup advertisements, mascaras deserve serious jail time. Seriously, everything I see from TV to print promise ginormous lashes that are impossible to achieve without extra reinforcement from falsies and fallacies a.k.a photoshop. That's why I turn to blog reviews and consumer feedback because I get to read the real score. With that said, will Pur Cosmetics Fully Charged Magnetic Mascara transform my lifeless lashes to vavava-voom proportion? scroll further for the juice and scoop!

I'm all about light fragrance and hydration during springtime, and I'm glad Farmhouse Fresh had me in mind with its Quinsyberry Botanical Body Oil and Citrine Beach Body Milk Lime and Coconut. Mind you, their name truly translate to beguiling fragrance appreciated by people around me. 

If you're new to the brand, Farmhouse Fresh products are made in Texas, using up to 99.6% naturally derived ingredients composed of fruits, vegetables, and milk sourced from US farms. They are manually assembled and packaged, guaranteed paraben, phthalate and sulfate-free, with most of the products being vegan and gluten-free.

As an ardent lippy lover, I am always on the lookout for new brands to try so call it perfect timing because I recently discovered Lip Radiance, a collection spawned by Emmy Award- winning makeup artist and one of Hollywood's most sought after makeup expert, Melanie Mills. A hybrid between lipstick and lip gloss, this line is available in seven shades, admiringly vegan, gluten and paraben-free, and never tested on animals!

Well, well, well...this blog happens to be on a drugstore kick this week! Although I naturally gravitate towards luxury brands, it can't be denied that drugstore counterparts are upping their game in the ever so competitive beauty league. This is great news for the greater majority because as the "perceived quality" gap between luxe and affordable brand becomes narrower, more consumers get to experience superior products without breaking the bank. Today let's zero in to Garnier SkinActive and see if the following products are right up your alley.

Waste not, want not. That has been my mantra in general. I consistently challenge myself to use up to the very last drop, repurchase if need be, and dump if its past the expiration date. For February, I am quite proud of my beauty pile, take a look!
