Kat Von D Piaf Studded Kiss Lipstick Review and Swatches


Gorgeous brown with an almost duo chrome purple sheen....




Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl and Glastonberry Review and Swatches


Both lovely...the formula is a muted matte...though Glastonberry really isn't matte at all.



Dr Jart+ Premium BB Cream Review


One of my favorite BBs and one of my favorite brands.

Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo Review and Swatches 3


Gorgeous.  Probably my favorite TF ever.  The colors should work on most and just light up the face.  Love.



Nars Audacious Mascara New for 2015


I like this sort of mascara....spidery lashes.  But it can clump and flake a little.

Tom Ford Lipstick in So Vain, Virgin Rose and Dark and Stormy Review and Swatches


So Vain is the standout.  Virgin Rose isn't anything super special but the same lovely formula that TF always has.  Dark and Stormy...wow....

Book Review: The Gates of Evangeline by Hester Young



I love this book.

Okay, it's a little dark.  A mother has lost her child...and her husband has run off with another woman.  She isn't coping well.  How does one cope with losing a child.  Indeed, she's barely functioning.

But she starts seeing dead children...and they have messages for her.

A writer, she's hired to head to the south to write about a long unsolved missing child case from a prominent and wealthy family.  And there a few things are, of course, amiss.

But the book is beautifully written. Touching, but a little sad.  Love.
