Favourite Look: Pregnancy First Trimester Edition

Well, I’ll be into my second trimester soon so I thought I’d tell you what I’ve been doing most of the time for the last 3 months. You know what they say about pregnancy glow? If you get bad morning sickness, forget about the glow. Let’s get real here. Do you know what bad morning sickness does to you? If you haven’t experienced it before, let me scare you a little. Bear in mind I’m already in my mid 30s and people did say that morning sickness gets worse with age. That I might agree because this is the worst ever.

Review: Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder in Candlelight

I’ve read a lot about┬áKevyn Aucoin’s sculpting powder and highlighter as a powerful duo, 2 products that give you instant believable cheekbones in a few minutes. I thought I’d pick one to try, and since I only have 2 powder highlighters in my collection, I don’t mind adding another one. I have enough eye shadows, blushes and lipstick to last me for at least a decade, but highlighters… I don’t use them much at all, and never had that penchant for them. The Candlelight I have is in the new packaging. I read that for the same price, we’re actually getting less product and also without a brush. For me, the shocker came in the size.

Sunday Stash Shopping #24 with Bobbi Brown Nectar & Nude Eye Palette

It’s been a while since I did a SSS. I also wanted to review this Bobbi Brown palette (looooooong overdue) so I thought I’d also do a quick write up on it. Bad blogger here, because I don’t know if the palette is still available, so if it is, be sure to let me know :-) I haven’t been in the mood of much makeup, and I’ve been so lazy, I’ve just been going out after slapping on my tinted sunscreen. However, when I do want to look more polished, this palette is something I’ve been reaching for.

Femme Boulevard: Old and New

Today, we’re doing a product based theme. The oldest and newest in our stash. For me, my oldest got to be my Kanebo T’estimo eye shadows which were long discontinued. The latest is a lip product by Bobbi Brown – their Art Stick. It worked out quite well, actually because I haven’t talked about either of them before. Also, Kate and I are the only ones doing this, and it so happens, Kate is the newest member of Femme Boulevard, and well, I’m the old one. LOL! Here’s a look at the product I used for this look.
