  1. I've heard a lot about St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse, do you apply it before you come out of the shower? or before you put on your makeup, or at night...and it doesn't streak cause its a mousse right?

  2. Ahhh the fekkai glossing cream is like heaven, sooo lovely! I STILL haven't tried sheer glow, I WILL! :) I love the bobbi brown concealer too, it has great coverage! (Thanks for the mention!) X

  3. You really need to try the Ojon products from Sephora. I love love love the dry shampoo and the glossing cream.

    The nightmare I have with the Bronzing Mousse is at my hairline. It's bizarre. How can I fix this???

  4. I heard a lot of good stuff about the fekkai glossing cream. I'm on a budget, so do you think it's worth the money ?

  5. @Obsessed
    the day before using St. Tropez i make sure to exfoliate in the shower and moisturize. then the next day I apply St. Tropez and go on with my day until evening or 4-5 hours later and I just shower off the excess.
    It dries super quick so you don't have to worry about it staining your clothes or anything. I haven't gotten any streaks from it either :)

    HI :)
    I love dry shampoo so I'll check it out next time I'm @ Sephora.
    As for the fake tan issue around the hairline, try applying some Vaseline at the very rim so that it will diffuse the mousse as you work it into the edges.
    I have yet to use it on my face but when I used a self tanning cream from Clarins that's what I did and I never had any problem

  7. @Beauty Addict

    I definitely think it's worth the plunge. Get the small bottle of it, you only need a very small amount (about a pea size) so it will last you forever :)

  8. Lovely blog!
