OSIS Hair Products

Hey loves! Recently I was lucky enough to try and test 2 new OSiS hair products, Dust it & Refresh Dust.  Dust it, which was voted best styling product in 2012, is a light weight powder to help texturize and give instant volume to your hair!

Redken & Maybelline Interviews

I was fortunate enough to interview Jorge Joao, lead stylist for Redken, and Grace Lee, lead make up artist for Maybelline, at Toronto Fashion Week.

Tangerine Lip Color

I’ve been sporting Nars – ‘Heat Wave’ in many posts, a few seen here, here and here. I hope to see all my loves sporting tangerine lips this summer! ~Love CTina xo 1.

beauty Review: Maybelline 14H Lip Color

During Toronto Fashion Week, goodie bags were given out to those who sat within the 1st two rows! In one of my goodie bags I received Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hour Lip Color! OHH MMM GEE is it ever amazing.  It is so hard to find a lip color that stays for long periods of time, but not to fret I have found one! Available in 20 shades, this light weight, long lasting lip stick is just what a girl needs! I can’t wait to go and get more colors! ~Love C
