And this is LLoyd showing what the mascara does!! Love this shot. He is basically saying that the YSL Baby Doll Mascara gives the lashes a wonderful curl, whilst separating and fanning them out, without weighing them down.
I think this is a pretty good representation of what the mascara does! Here it is on me after lovely YSL makeup artist Fred applied it for me: As you can see it is incredibly lengthening and defining. My lashes are practically touching my brows!
YSL Baby Doll Mascara is a really high tech mascara which has a formula protected by 2 patents and combines 3 polymers, soft waxes and an agent that allows the maximum distribution of black pigments for an even colour. It promises 24 hour hold too. The brush is pretty special.
It alternates thick, widely spaced bristles and finer, more closely spaced bristles to coat and magnify the lashes and define even the shortest lashes respectively. It is built to cover the lashes root to tip. Lloyds Simmonds' tips for application?
Apply the YSL Baby Doll Mascara in "small successive strokes without pausing between application. Start from the base of the lashes and zigzag towards the tips to ensure better separation. Start at the outer corners of the eyes and work toward the inner corner before gradually building up the lashes." I cannot wait to have a go at this myself.
YSL Baby Doll Mascara is definitely the one I'll be wearing tomorrow! It comes in 4 shades - No 1 Fetish Black, No 2 Wheedler Brown (pictured above), No 3 Audacious Blue and No 4 Indiscreet Purple. The YSL Baby Doll collection also features Eyeliner Babydoll in No 10 Light Golden Brown*, No 11 Light Blue*, No 12 Light Amethyst*, No 15 Golden Reflections and No 16 Rose Babydoll.
There is also a Glossy Stain and a Lacque Couture nail polish in Rose Babydoll. Here is the look that Lloyds Simmonds created for us using the YSL Baby Doll collection: The YSL Baby Doll collection launches on 29th May 2013 and will be available nationwide. The graphic eyeliners marked with a * are online exclusives (yslbeauty.co.uk).
YSL Baby Doll Mascara will cost 24.50, the graphic eyeliners 24, the nail polish 23.50 and the Glossy Stain 18.
I think you are going to love this collection!! Continue reading
Easy! You keep it clean, simple and of course, vegan! No Need to Over-Spray!
Here s How to Make Your Scent Stay Back in the day, I was such a perpetrator of over-spraying my perfume. It took me years to find my scent, and once I had, all bets were off. I would spray everywhere, from my clothes to my bare skin.
However, two big mistakes were made in doing so: #1 Perfume can destroy your clothing. Hoping to make the scent last longer I would spray my clothes. Turns out the properties found in most perfumes can actually degrade the quality of your clothing s material.
Not only that, but perfumes smell different on clothing than they do on your skin. Your hormone levels, natural oils, perspiration can directly affect the scent. I learned to refrain from spray my clothes, and focus on applying it more to my pulse points; wrist, knees, earlobes and throat. #2 Over-spraying can cause skin to breakout.
The ingredients in the perfume I was using were irritating and inflaming my skin, especially my chest and face. After a little trial and error, I found that making my own perfume out of natural products (like essential oils and water) and only applying it to my pulse points gave me the best results. Not only were these products good for my skin, but strategically placing them allowed for a more organic, long lasting scent that truly was my own.
Scrubbing It Raw I know that the key to clear, beautiful skin is regular exfoliation, but there have been times when I have taken it just a little too far. And if I m being totally honest, I have scrubbed my skin raw and darn-near to the bone because I wasn t being careful. Even now, I sometimes forget to ease up and am left with blotchy, red skin.
Luckily, there is a quick fix. When you rub your skin raw, what you ve done is inflamed your skin by drying it out and removing its natural oils. To renew your natural moisture barrier, apply some soy yogurt to your skin and let sit for 10 minutes.
The acidophilus found in yogurt helps soothe and calm your skin. Hot tip: not all soy yogurts are vegan, so be mindful of the brand name. I like Silk Life and Whole Soy & Co.
because they contain live vegan cultures of acidophilus. A Natural Way to Brighten and Whiten I m sure I m not the only one who has dropped a chunk of change on one of those at-home teeth whitening kits. Their before and after shots looked so promising, but alas all I got was some serious tooth sensitivity.
A great way to naturally achieve those pearly whites is to watch what types of foods and drinks we are ingesting. Things like coffee, sodas, red wine, candy and even citrus fruits can all stain your teeth. To avoid leaving your teeth vulnerable and wearing away at the enamel try this quick DIY.
Mash up two fresh strawberries and add a little baking soda. Stir together until evenly combined then gently brush your teeth with the paste for no less than 2 minutes. The salicylic acid found in strawberries and micro abrasion of baking soda help to gently scrub away any stains without causing any damage to your teeth.
You should see results in no time at all. So there you have it, three common mistakes that are easy to fix and even easier to avoid. What are some of your common beauty blunders?

With their easy-to-clean surfaces and ability to cook food to perfection, nonstick cookware has become a staple in the majority of American households. But it is important to do the proper research before purchasing nonstick pots and pans as certain brands and types of cookware can release hazardous toxins when heated or chipped. Traditional Teflon cookware contains PTFE, polytetrafluoroethylene, which when heated to high temperatures breaks down and releases toxic chemicals harmful to both people and animals.
However, there is debate among professional chefs and industry experts as to whether the cookware ever gets hot enough to release PFOA. PFOA, perfluorooctanoic acid, is a carcinogen and an immune system toxicant that is believed to be released when PTFE is heated. According to the new NonStick Cookware Alternatives blog, nonstick pots and pans free of PTFE and PFOA are the only healthy cookware options.
Additionally, the blog says people need to be cautious about nonstick cookware labeled as green. NonStick Cookware Alternatives states, If you want safe nonstick cookware, please be careful about so-called green cookware. The word green is often misused.
Not everything that is labeled green is actually eco-friendly. The blog provides in-depth information about two safe alternatives to Teflon-type cookware. These include enamelware and certain brands of ceramic cookware.
While enamelware was once known to contain unsafe levels of lead and cadmium, today it is been greatly improved and is well within the permitted levels as dictated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. NonStick Cookware Alternatives offers a list of enamelware brands made with the highest quality materials.
The site also provides a range of the top hard-anodized ceramic cookware available. For more information about the safest and best nonstick cookware, visit http://nonstickcookwarealternatives.blogspot.com/2012/04/nonstick-cookware.html About Essential Kitchen Things: The motto of Essential Kitchen Things is Save Time, Save Money Enjoy Life and the use of healthy cookware is essential to the enjoyment of life. The company aims to inform the consumer of the hazards associated with some types of nonstick cookware and to offer healthier alternatives.

Violet Eggplant? Mulberry? ANY help would be greatly appreciated.
Filthy Gorgeous London Judy Baby is a gorgeous "violet eggplant" creme. Application was good and I achieved opacity in two coats. It dries to a high gloss and all photos are with two coats of color and no top coat.
In indirect natural light, it's a bit lighter and brighter and in artificial light it's deeper, richer. I love it in ANY light. I love green, especially olive drab/army/yucky greens, and a great grey, the perfect mushroom and a true royal purple, but this "berry" color is my favorite of any color family.
What do you think? And what do YOU call this color? Filthy Gorgeous London polishes, as well as their other beauty products, can be purchased at their online shop here for 9.00.
I'm not sure if they're available anywhere in the US but I ordered online and received my polishes direct from the UK in a reasonable time frame and beautifully packaged. You can also follow them on Twitter for updates and promos as well as Facebook. Their polishes are 3-Free and Cruelty-Free.
