Question of the Week: Is there a makeup application technique that you’ve tried to master, but just can’t seem to conquer?

Answer: I’m still not particularly consistent with my eyeliner flicks!  I have a theory that just as I get used to the angles needed to create even flicks on my oddly-hooded eyes, one eyelid decides to droop another millimetre… throwing me off.

Pink Sith – is positively blushing at the name of the NARS Blush called “Sex Fantasy”. Not that she’s a prude or anything.

Prime Beauty – has finally found her Prince Charming…kinda. He is just one of the many calorie-free limited edition treats from the Valentine’s Day Collection at LUSH! Indulge yourself and your sweetheart with no guilt! Trust me, you’ll want to stock up.

Phyrra – Phyrra share all of her favorite Complexion Perfection products. Find a new favorite foundation here!

we heart this – Mega pores? Yeah, us too. Check out the latest from the Benefit POREfessional line and it can be our little secret.

Chalkboard Nails – created a geometric nail art look using the neutral shades from the brand new OPI Brazil Collection.

Clumps of Mascara – has come across an amazing mascara. No seriously. Too Faced’s Better Than False Lashes is one of the coolest mascaras that I have ever tried.

Gouldylox Reviews – These five hairsprays will change how you handle your hair.

My Beauty Bunny – Manis, manis, manis! Jen and friends get ready for Valentine’s Day with gorgeous nail art from Plush Beauty Bar. Come look and see.

Nouveau Cheap – Do you like the idea of long-wear lip colors, but hate the moisture-sucking properties that often go along with them? These might be just the ticket (and they’re only $3.50 each)

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Pink Sith – A simple yet lovely blog post about beauty. Here is a beauty epiphany from Alice In Nappyland and what a $1.99 lipstick taught her.
