Delialicious Picks Turns 4

All Hallows’ Eve – the day when all TV channels are filled with horror movies, while everyone dresses up in costumes and eats an unapologetic amounts of candy. I was never really allowed to celebrate Halloween growing up, but we did sometimes decorate the house windows with pumpkin pictures and bats. And, some unfortunate trick-or-treaters may have received tiny boxes of raisins from my Dietitian father, as my mom scurried through the house to shut off all the lights so it wouldn’t look like we were home. Other than these fond childhood memories, the yearly celebration is dear to me because it’s the day I decided to launch this blog in 2010. It’s so hard to believe that Delialicious Picks is celebrating its four-year anniversary today. The blog has come a long way since its inception and I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to share my interests with you. I hope you continue the journey with me. Happy Halloween!

Product Review: Pura Botanica Natural Soap Bar


If you’re like me and suffer for skin irritations such as eczema, you’re always on the lookout for gentle products that won’t cause any kind of skin discomfort, especially when it comes to showering. This is why I’m excited to have discovered Pura Botania’s All Natural Cleansing Bars, which are made with organic ingredients and essential oils. The soap bars lather nicely and rinse off cleanly, leaving behind baby soft skin.
My favorite so far is the Chai Vanilla soap bar, which uses finely ground vanilla beans to gently exfoliate the skin, while botanical ingredients nourishes and leaves behind the sweet aromas of vanilla and chai.
What I like most about the ingredients in the bar, is that I can actually pronounce everything on the label.

The Natural Cleansing Bars retail for $7.00 on

Ck one color global makeup artist Kayleen McAdams, gave Jessica Biel her girl-next-door simple makeup look on the red carpet. “I wanted to do something really fresh, light and feminine” said McAdams. “There were so many beautiful pastels in her dress, so I played with those tones.” Here’s how to get the look:

1. I prepped Jessica’ skin with moisturizing face and eye products, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration and Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, to give her makeup a good base to stick to.
2. Then, I used a damp Beauty Blender to apply ck one 3-in-1 face makeup with SPF 8 in fair 200, followed by ck one 3-in-1 concealer in light 1 underneath the eyes, around the nose, and along the edges of her mouth to even out her skin.
3. I used Charlotte Tilbury Sculpt and Highlight Powder on the tops of Jessica’s cheekbones, down her nose, and on her cupid’s bow.
4. I finished her skin with ck one cream + powder blush duo in breath 100 right on the apples of her cheeks and set it with the powder side of the product to give the look staying power throughout the night.
5. For Jessica’s eyes, I started by using a fluffy brush to apply ck one cream + powder bronzer duo in deeply bronzed 400 all over the lid.
6. Then, I used ck one powder eyeshadow in expose and evolved on the inner corners of the eye and along the lash line at the outer corners.
7. I completed her eye with two coats of ck one volumizing mascara on the top lashes to pump up the lashes.
8. Then, I applied the same mascara onto an eyelash comb and combed through the bottom lashes to slightly darken them.
9. For Jessica’s lips, I used Tarte Lip Surgence in Lucky to cover her whole lip with a matte pink; I also used this product in the center of her lips to give dimension and add moisture to her look.
10. Lastly, I gave Jessica’s lips a good coating of Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No-Shine Lip Balm to soak in while I did her eyes.

EYE CREAM: Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
MOISTURIZER: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration
FOUNDATION: ck one 3-in-1 face makeup with SPF 8 in fair 200
CONCEALER: ck one 3-in-1 concealer in light 1
