Tatcha Luminous Eye Mask Review

I was introduced to Tatcha through +Beautylish and have been adoring this Brand ever since. When I was asked if I were interested in reviewing 2 of their products, I jumped at the chance; Tatcha and my skin are a match made in Heaven!

I adore eye masks. It's an area most of us tend to neglect, probably as much as our neck. This mask is simple, easy to travel with and easy to apply. Created by +Tatchaand formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, sulfate detergents, phthalates, urea, DEA or TEA, Deep Hydration Revitalizing Eye Mask is non-irritating and has been dermatologist-tested.

Feel the Vegas Heat with Jaded Nail Co.

One of the amazing activities I was able to participate in while attending Cosmoprof North America, Las Vegas, was an indie nail polish PR party. Featuring 19 brands, one of them was new-to-me Jaded Nail Co. They created an exclusive hue for this party; Vegas Heat, a divine reddish coral that turns neon pink when applied and reacts to black light as well as glows in the dark. Yes, the raver girl in me has found my soul shade. I applied 3 coats for full opactity. The next day I chose to use a +NailVinyls burst sticker to add a dash of +Girly Bits CosmeticsA Striper Has Been Sleeping In My Bed glitter lacquer to A) play with vinyls for the first time and B) spice up my look for #Electric_Summer.

I am totally in love with this lacquer. It dries to a matte finish so I topped it with 1 coat of Glisten & Glow's Fast Drying & Super Shiny Clear Top Coat. Which, by the way, has become my new HG top coat. It is bombdotcom. Easy to apply, levels perfectly, does not thicken by nail 6 m…

PHAMExpo 2014 Beauty Haul.

I love +PHAMExpo, this is their second year in Pasadena as the Summer bridge for makeup shows and I have to admit, it is my favourite by far. I didn't even go to iMats or The Makeup Show this year because I was saving my sanity for PHAME.
My weekend started in Old Town, I found myself hopping in an Uber and venturing into +Madewell for 2 awesome treasures: An iPhone battery backup and a set of metal bobby pins. The deal of the day was the charger; Gingham in colour, it retailed for $39.40, was clearance for $29.99 but it was incorrectly marked to $4.99. score! The bobbies were full price at $10.50.

Since I drove to Pasadena, I knew I could buy a few special treasures at the +Goorin Bros. hat shop. I grabbed a new hat for myself, a future gift and a hot box for Franci. She too has an impressive hat collection and needs to protect her pieces from fading and dirt. I also grabbed this awesomesauce Brooklyn hat pin for one of my older Goorin fedoras.

If you recall, I created a shopping li…
