The Best of 2011: Nail Polish, Nail Art, Makeup, Skincare & Fragrance

Swatch And Learn The Best of 2011It’s been quite a year, hasn’t it?

I’ve tried all sorts of new beauty products including nail polishes. And I’ve had tons of fun coming up with nail-art designs!

Now that it’s the last day in 2011, it’s time to reflect upon the year.

I’d like to share with you my Best of 2011 list! I still have a ton of favourites from last year, so these picks are strictly new ones that I’ve blogged about in 2011.

You’ll see it broken down into the following categories: nail polish (duh), nail art (double duh), fragrance, makeup, and skincare. All lists are in no particular order. (It was difficult enough to whittle down my picks for the nail polishes!)

Feel free to click on the links – they’ll take you to the blog post with the swatches, reviews, and tutorial (where appropriate).

Now I’m so curious about what you think!

Is there a lacquer that you feel I sorely missed including? Have you found your Holy Grail facial cleanser? What nail-art design have you worn in 2011 that you would consider wearing again in 2012?

Please weigh in with your picks! We’re all different, but our love for beauty products brings us together. 🙂 Continue reading


Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme Review & Pictures

Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle CremeMy hands get dry during this time of year, and my cuticles are no exception. Oftentimes I’m just far too lazy to use cuticle cream, but when I remember, I reach for the Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme that my friend bought me a couple of years ago in a kit with other goodies.

It smells divine, it’s small and easy to take with you, and it’s made with natural ingredients. And to put the cherry on top, it isn’t tested on animals.

This lemon cuticle cream is the first one I’ve tried, but I love it so much that I don’t have any desire to check out another. Continue reading


Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Review (Tin & Tube)

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

With all the alarmist health news telling us every day that something new causes cancer, it’s no wonder that more people are looking for beauty products with less chemicals and more natural ingredients.

I picked up the tin and tube versions of Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm on separate occasions years ago and thought it would be a good idea to review them both now. While you may think the packaging is the only difference, that’s not the case at all. (More on that later.) Continue reading
