tachalipbalmI may have just fallen in love.

I am no stranger to lip balm. In fact, based on how many coat pockets lip balm is tucked away in, you'd probably think lip care was my number one priority. It's funny, such a little thing that means so much to me. My family reminded me the other day that I clearly show how much I love lip balm by giving my favorites as gifts every year in their stockings (and they are still stocked up).

Well, meet Gold Spun Camellia Lip Balm by Tatcha, an ultra-hydrating lip balm made of nourishing Camellia oil. This balm is the bomb! It leaves your lips super soft with a golden shimmer. Enriched with Camellia oil and Squalene, it absorbs quickly and smoothly. Camellia oil is rich in oleic acid and vitamins A, B, D and E as well as Omegas 3, 6 and 9. I love that it's formulated without mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, PEGs, PPGs, DEA, TEA, urea or phthalates. 

Glossy finish, 23-karat gold flakes and a touch of sensual shimmer. Bam!

YSLtheshockShocking indeed!

There aren't many mascaras that impress me. However, this one lived up to its name.

Mascara and I go way back. In fact, ten years ago I started The Mascara Report due to overwhelming disappointment in the world of mascara. And while I wish I had the time to continue the report to help guide lash enthusiasts in the right direction when selecting a mascara, this will have to serve as my stamp of approval.

Mascara should serve your purpose. And yours may be different than mine. I have high expectations and I realize it. However, there is no reason why I shouldn't be able to find the perfect mascara match. My absolute musts — volume, length and positively no clumping, smudging, smearing or flaking. 

How did The Shock fare?

There is no doubt this is the most volumizing mascara by Yves Saint Laurent. The hourglass shaped brush allows the formula to grab hold of lashes. Because of that, it lengthens automatically. What was most shocking for me was the ability to get the look that I wanted without compromising my need for 'work all day' mascara. Literally in one coat it did everything I wished for with complete ease. It's even sweat proof! Yet, at the end of the day, it comes off incredibly easy (and I have no idea how YSL does it). The only drawback is the life of The Shock. A month to a month and a half can be expected. In my book, well worth it.

Available at Neiman Marcus

My toes were in desperate need of attention this past weekend. And due to my binge watching of the final season of Bloodline, I took matters into my own hands.

Sally Hansen truly has some amazing colors. One of my favorites in the color collection is Shell We Dance, a super soft, feminine pink. While this picture showcases fingernails, it's just as gorgeous on toes! I do believe it's my favorite natural look for feet.
