They Call it Potion Because It’s Magical

I first tried Urban Decay’s Primer Potion (eye shadow primer) when I was at the airport. I figured that if it could hold up for an 8 hour flight, then it would be good for everyday too. Well it didn’t let me down. I had often suffered from creasing eye shadow, especially on long days, […]

Concealer

This weekend, Arpan and I talked about putting concealer under our eyes. We both agreed that on darker skin tones, using a lighter shade of concealer isn’t always a great idea since that’s now how the area under our eyes is naturally. Naturally, on brown skins, that area is the same colours as the rest […]

Where to Buy: Cle de Peau

Cle de Peau Concealer ends up on every “best” list. Some say that it’s their holy grail of concealers and MUA members love it as well. My problem is that the concealer only comes in 3 colours, all of them quite light, so the line isn’t really made for minorities or darker skin tones. Still, […]

Do It Yourself

It’s not just that I didn’t feel that pure black nail polish was the best colour for my skin tone. It’s also the fact that I didn’t want to be wearing the exact same shade that everyone else was – BLACK. I couldn’t find a colour that was different so I decided to make it […]

MAC Blot Powder

A simple review really: Mac Blot Powder works. It lasts for about two hours and immediately takes the shine from your skin. And don’t stress about the colour either, since they have practically no colour to them. I’m a medium-dark but I know that I could go lighter or darker with almost no difference. Try […]

Bond Perfumes

The Canadian market is so different than the American one, even in a big city like Toronto. I find that it’s not as edgy and up-to-date, and I frequently have problems finding “in” items. For example, you’d think that every single drugstore and spa/salon would have a few different shades of black nail polish, but […]

Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner

Though I love makeup, it’s rare for me to find something that has the “wow effect”. The “wow effect” is when I try something on and I say (or think) “Wow! That looks really good on me!” Benefit’s Dallas Blush had that effect, and so does this: Prescriptives Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner in Beaming Brown. I […]
