It’s a MYSTERY

Mystery mascara

There is nothing I love more than a surprise package.  What could it be?  Who sent it to me?  Is it something I have been lusting after for ages? A week or so ago I received a surprise package in the mail which when opened revealed a sample sized mascara but with no markings on […]

Makeup for young performers

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by one of Seduced by Beauty’s Facebook followers if I could help with some suggestions for their daughter’s upcoming dance concert.  Their daughter is 5 and has quite sensitive skin so the products needed are ones that will work with her delicate, sensitive skin. I am thrilled […]

NYX in Target

The day has finally come.  NYX has arrived at my local Target.

I have resisted purchasing any […]
