Twisting through a Mineral Fusion Coal Mine

Twist by Polish To Be Honest.
Click to enlarge for detail.

This was easy and fun, my favourite kind of mani!! I was surprised by the amount of shimmer that Coal Mineby +Mineral Fusion,  delivered to my nails. I added 3 coats of Coal Mine for full opacity, waited for it to dry and topped my ring finger with 2 coats of Twist by +Polish TBH. These lacquers are slightly textured, I recommend a high shine top coat to protect the finish and prevent edging and chipping.

A gift from +Franci, you can score Mineral Fusion at +Whole Foods Market. If you hurry, they are 2/$12 through Saturday! xoxo •Nancy-Lee

Brook's Birthday ; A Pacifica Beauty Haul.

Click image to enlarge for detail.

Did you celebrate Brook's birthday and save 20% off your +Pacifica Perfume purchase? Clearly, I couldn't resist.

I was in the market for blue mascara so I selected Aquarian Gaze in Deep and I wanted a golden shimmer powder, leading Golden Lotus to find it's way into my cart, too. Made with coconut water, it will brighten and illuminate my face this winter. However, I wasn't in the market for more lacquer but I added Unicorn Horn nail polish - plus perfume for a friend - to score free shipping.

Vegetarian Lash + Lid Makeup Remover by Andalou

I was attracted to Lash + Lid Makeup Remover by +Andalou Naturals because of the use of fruit stem cells. Designed for normal and combination skin, this eye makeup remover is free of gluten, parabens, preservatives, sulfates and phthalates. Plus it's vegetarian, cruelty free, and made in the USA! Not to mention non-GMO verified!

I'm shocked that this makeup remover can cut through my 'waterproof' formulas, too. I apply a little more than 1/2 a pump to a cotton round, fold it over to disperse the product and then apply a blotch of cream to each eye. Starting with the first eye, I gently work the non-diluted cream over my lid and brow and then hold the cotton round in place over my lash line for 10 seconds and sweep it down and away removing my mascara but not my lashes. I repeat the process on my other eye and once done, I fold the cotton round in half adding a small amount of water, I sweep it across both eyes removing any residue remover and makeup.

Completing my Artist Shadow Palette

One of my friends has been drooling over my +MAKE UP FOR EVER OFFICIAL Artist Shadows so I took her to the +Westfield Valley Fair location. Where she managed to get in to as much trouble as I already was... She grabbed 3 shadows and one 3-pan palette. Me? ok, I admit it, I grabbed one more shadow, D-826, to complete my Limited Edition 4-Pan.

The Ultimate Mens Shave Guide

Good grooming requires a little know-how and a degree of commitment. the benefits of a good regime will help you look and feel your best and give you healthier smoother skin. Follow our simple guide and we guarantee you'll have a closer longer lasting and more comfortable shave. Feel the direction in which your beard grows. As a general rule this is the direction you should always shave.

  1. We recommend a multi-blade razor as the improvement in performance is huge. To ensure it has a sharp cutting edge change every 4 to 5 uses.
  2. Moisten beard by splashing your face with several handfuls of the hottest water that you can comfortably stand.
  3. Use one shot of the Sensitive Shave Cream and rub vigorously over beard to help lift hairs away from your skin.
  4. Shave in the direction your hair grows using light, slow strokes to avoid grazing or nicking skin. Whilst shaving use your other hand to gently pull and stretch skin to create a flat surface for your razor blade to glide over easily.
  5. Regularly rinse and gently tap razor on the sink to remove hair and cream build-up.
  6. Smooth hands over your beard to check for stray hairs and reshave any missed areas.
  7. Splash face several times with cold water to rinse and refresh skin. Pat with a clean soft towel leaving skin slightly damp. Do not rub as this may cause irritation.
  8. Apply our After-Shaving Moisturiser to soothe your face. This light, easily absorbed formula will lock in moisture leaving skin smooth and nourished.
