Another Nail Sticker Fail

By Monika Cancilla I bought these Revlon nail stickers ($9.99) because of the adorable pink glitter houndstooth design. They were very, very cute going on. But alas, no more than 5 minutes later this started happening. I’m pretty sure the only thing I did with my hands in that five minutes was flip my hair. […] […]

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer & Color Show Nail Stickers Are Two Drugstore Wins

By Monika Cancilla Hello lovely ladies of the internets! I wanted to share a few drugstore gems that I’ve discovered in the last few weeks. Yes, I realize that they’re not natural or organic, but they work so I’m gonna use ’em. First up is Maybelline’s Dream Lumi Touch concealer. It’s a highlighting concealer that […] […]

Monika’s Au Naturale makeover: The good, the Meh, and the Ugly.

By Monika Cancilla Since the beginning of my all natural makeover, I’ve learned one thing. Finding natural, organic, environmentally responsible beauty products that lives up to their claims is like finding a needle in a haystack. I’ve tried countless products in search of new holy grails to replace my old, chemical laden ones. So far, there are only a few […] […]

Going Au Naturale – An Update

By Monika Cancilla Hello Ladies! In the past week or so of my Au Naturale makeover, I’ve discovered a few more awesome natural products to share with you that actually work!

Monika goes Au Naturale (with her beauty routine, that is.)

By Monika Cancilla I read a statistic the other day that the average woman exposes herself to 500 chemicals a day via her beauty and grooming practices. Now, I’m pretty sure that number is inaccurate, because if you could see all of the products I use on a daily basis that number would surely exceed […] […]

Makeup For New Moms. It Can Be Done!

By Monika Cancilla When I first discovered that I was pregnant last June with my first kid, I vowed to myself that I’d never become a frumpy Mom. I wouldn’t succumb to wearing sweatpants out of the house. I’d shower. I’d wear heels, go to parties, and I’d do my hair and makeup every day, […] […]

Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush – A Review

By Monika Cancilla This is more like it! The Hourglass Aura Cheek Stain comes in a weighty twist-click tube with a felt applicator that distributes just enough product. Again, no spillage or wasted product. Very nice. Their packaging design department deserves a raise. (You listening Hourglass? Seriously.) The consistency is light and I don’t detect any […] […]

Hourglass Aura Sheer Lip Stain in Flush – A Review

By Monika Cancilla Hourglass is a higher-end cosmetic line with which I’ve had very good experiences with. They consistently win in the product quality and package design department. This particular Aura Sheer Lip Stain comes in a beautiful, weighty gun metal grey tube with a felt tip applicator. A few twists and you get the perfect […] […]

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstain

By Monika Cancilla Lip stains are a hot commodity these days. The hard part is finding the right formula and shade. Some lip stains out there (ahem, Revlon) are so pigmented and bright that they might blind that cute guy walking down the street. Others (cough, Benefit, cough) last a total of 20 minutes on […] […]

Broadway Nails-Nail Dress-Stick on Wraps

By Monika Cancilla I’m pregnant. For that reason, I’ve been avoiding anything with fumes (and just stinky things in general). My nails, though, have been sad for months. I saw these stick-on wraps the other day and thought, what better time to try them? At about $6 why not? As I lay in my pregnant […] […]
