2015 Makeup Heroes

Continuing my best of 2015 installment (best skincare products of 2015 here), I thought I would round up the makeup products I have used and love the most last year. Now, I know this is a super late post, but better late than never, right?   Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base has been a groundbreaking product for me in 2015.

New In My Night Time Routine: Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol Treatment

Since I’ve crossed the big 30th, I thought it’s time to add retinol to my skincare routine, after all, it’s one of the clinically proven anti-aging products that actually works.

Omorovicza Refining Facial Polisher Review

After going through my Omorovicza rejuvenating night cream and falling completely in love with it, I decided to try out other products from this brand. Eventually, along with many other things, I picked up this pricy refining facial polisher when Cult Beauty was running a promotion last year. I’ve given it a good use over the past couple of months and have to say, I hate it that I love it. Like other Omorovicza products, this facial polisher has its signature scent, which to me…
