Anissa Da Vinci LED Lip Gloss: Light Show

Whether you want centuries-old geisha secrets or the latest in technology, Asia always has the best in beauty.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Pretty Naughty Collection

It’s kind of funny to me that Estee Lauder’s Spring 2013 collection is called Pretty Naughty because Lauder is one of the last brands I think of when it comes to naughty – hence the double entendre with “pretty” I presume.
