A-List Exfoliation With Glam Glow Youth Mud | Hollywood’s Acclaimed Facial Mask

Boo y’all! One of the first beauty related things I had time to do while I was abroad was try on what my niece sent me from the Sephora VIB sale, she got me the limited edition “Little Sexy” size pot of Glam Glow Youth Mud. She was so sweet, because she knew I wouldn’t arrive in time to avail of the sale she asked if I wanted a little somethin’ from it in advance. I chose this little .5 oz pot, it was about $20 from the sale and $24 originally from the Glam Glow site. If celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Nina Dobrev had only good stuff to say as well as Jennifer Aniston, Denzel Washington and Jay-Z before the packaging even had branding on it (source: Forbes) then you know somethin’ good and glam is going on!

Back First With Some L’Oreal Ever Pure Haircare | Need a Moment to Breathe

The absentee beauty blogger is back! I’ve got lots coming up for you it’s just that it’s quite disorienting to be back and I’ve had to do a corporate makeup job the very next day with an early call time. I’m quite stretched to be honest and still reeling from jet lag and the whole trip, but guess what I’ve got a couple of goodies for you guys. I will mention one thing lightly, lots of the cosmetic drugstore stuff in the US can already be found here, not all but a lot, but their drugstores still rock the boat when it comes to haircare. Only one variant of Sulfate Free L’Oreal Ever Pure haircare is available locally (the one for straight hair) but naturally in the States they’ve got all variants. What’s lovely about the moisturizing type I got is it’s like a milder drugstore version of my favorite Pureology hydration range also under L’Oreal. Plus who can refuse being lathered in a Rosemary and Mint scent? It makes me feel like a lush lamb LOL. It lathers well despite being sulfate-free and is safe for colored hair. The shampoo and conditioning system together leaves my hair feeling fresh … Read the rest

Before the Blog Fast | Jessica Chastain for Disney’s BRAVE

I’m going for a one week blog and YouTube fast but I thought I’d let you guys know instead of just disappearing.

I thought I’d leave you with something breathtaking. Jessica Chastain’s Disney dream portrait as Merida from “Brave”. Makeup by Kristofer Buckle, shot by Annie Leibovitz.

British Boys in Beards | No Blush Required

20140107-223130.jpg

“Beard-ly” beloved we are gathered “hair” today…

CLOCKWISE: Henry Cavill (Man of Steel), Prince William, Tom Hardy (Bane, The Dark Knight Rises, Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC Sherlock)

This isn’t to say I only like guys with facial fuzz, it’s just to show that in spite of the guaranteed cheek-to-cheek itch it is quite a dashing, rustic change for some of them. Like, I happen to think that that is the most handsome photo of Benedict Cumberbatch I have ever seen but he must’ve been only 28-30ish in that photo. He’s 37 now and busy being big since his Hollywood debut as a villain in Star Trek following the sharp success of the BBC series, Sherlock. BC should give this look another go soon. Henry Cavill knocked out Prince Harry’s spot simply because he’s faster than a speeding bullet. It slipped my mind that Henry was British, thanks to Bea of the Dalaga Project for reminding me. Which male celebrities or famous personalities do you prefer with facial hair on?… Read the rest
