Swatches: Nail Inc Bling It On Floral Nail Polish Set - Bloomsbury Way

I saw Jess's video on a Kawaii Nail Tutorial and couldn't help but try to attempt it on my own. I personally have never tried any type of nail art, so I decided to pick this Nail Inc Bling It On Floral kit up from Sephora retailing $25 (still available here for $13) .

Reveal: Dior's Secret Diva Monthly Box Jan & Feb 2014

Not sure why there isn't a lot of info on these, but you saw right, super high end luxury cosmetic brand Dior has a monthly subscription box as well, it's the Secret Diva subscription. The Dior Secret Diva subscription is slightly different than Glossybox or even the Le Metier De Beaute one that I've been sharing. The Secret Diva subscription was part of Dior's annual Auction event in October where all profits are donated to Look Good Feel Good. The Secret Diva was a limited quantity auction (I think there was only 100) and each subscription was $600 for 12 monthly boxes. Now $600 is very pricey upfront especially when you compare it to all the other subscriptions (LMdB was $348), but I consider it as part charity donation and am just fulfilling my annual charity donations (though this is not tax-deductible). Also for $50/month, you will receive full size Dior products which includes limited edition and early releases of the upcoming product launches. I see this as a foot in door with other pristine beauty bloggers ( XD  ok, I stop dreaming.)

The Secret Diva programs starts in the beginning of the calendar year and I was expecting to receive mine on the 8th of each month as advertised, but my January box came before the year even started. Here's the reveal of my very first Dior Secret Diva - Jan 2014:

Review: Missha Complexion Coordinating BB Cream in No. 2

BB creams was all the rage a few years ago and now this past year, we see a flood of CC creams on the market. Missha's M Perfect Cover BB Cream was the first I ever tried and I definitely jumped on when announced they have the Missha CC cream on their Facebook page! Of course there was a little false advertising, in my humble opinion, because it wasn't a CC cream, instead they called it their CC BB cream. (Confusing eh?) Well Missha launched the new Complexion Coordinating BB Cream .

Reveal: Le Metier De Beaute Dec 2013, Jan & Feb 2014 Beauty Vault VIP Boxes

Just wanted to share more of what I received in my recent boxes from Le Metier De Beaute. And I continue to be amazed at all the product value you receive with this subscription. Though I will admit that I was a little disappointed with what was sent in the 2 boxes this year.
