Ever wondered the differences between loose powders, pressed powders and two way cakes? Here are the answers!

Just as its name suggests, Loose Powders are powders that come in loose form. They usually come in a sifting pot and are usually used to set liquid foundation. Their coverage tends to range from sheer to medium. Available colors include translucent, flesh tones and correctors. Loose powders are also suitable for all types of skin.

Here is an awesome video tutorial on how to apply bronzer by smokin’ hot Canadian makeup artist, Beau Nelson. Beau has done makeup on a lot of celebs like Amanda Bynes, Sienna Miller and Iman. I *think* the two products he used in the video are a bronzer by Calvin Klein and NARS blush in Orgasm.





To see what bronzers I recommend, read my bronzer reviews.

I went to Victoria’s Secret yesterday to check out their new Santa collection but ended up walking out with a few hair products from their So Sexy line. I got the Supersmooth Straightening Balm, Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner for Fine Hair. All 3 for $21 – what a steal!

Let me start off with the shampoo and conditioner. Both products have been a rave for me so far. After using them once, I can already feel the difference. My hair appears softer, shinier and definitely bouncier. The smell is also fabulous and it lingers on for a long time. Every time I catch a whiff of it, I can’t help but go mmmmmm *lol* The shampoo, however, is pretty drying so you do have to follow up with the conditioner. I also really like the packaging. The tall pink bottle is just so cute and so VS!

As for the Supersmooth Straightening Balm, it is working just as great. I apply a dime-sized amount onto my hair and it looks just like the model’s on the picture on the right – straight yet full of volume. And the best part is, I do not even need a straightening iron and my hair stays that way for the entire day! Seriously how awesome and easy is that? I will definitely check out the rest of their products from this line.
